Will Golden Globes continue their love affair with musicals? ‘Cats,’ ‘Rocketman’ and more sure hope so

Will Golden Globes continue their love affair with musicals? ‘Cats,’ ‘Rocketman’ and more sure hope so
The Golden Globes stan musicals, so if you break out into song you can usually count on a spot there even if you don’t get one anywhere else. Will that trend continue this year? There are a number of music-driven films with a shot including “Rocketman,” “Blinded by the Light,” “Yesterday” and yes, even “Cats.” Underestimate them at your peril.

Musicals are helped by the fact that the Golden Globes have separate categories for comedy/musical films and lead performers. But even with that in mind the Globes are friendlier to musicals than you might expect. In the last 20 years the Hollywood Foreign Press Association have given Best Picture nominations to “The Phantom of the Opera” and “Ray” (2004), “The Producers” (2005), “Across the Universe” and “Hairspray” (2007), “Mamma Mia!” (2008), “Nine” (2009), “Burlesque” (2010), “Into the Woods” (2014), “Sing Street” (2016), “The Greatest Showman” (2017) and “Mary Poppins Returns” (2018). Some of those had been dismissed by critics.

At Afm, There’s a Small-Screen Boom for Indie Producers

  • Variety
For the first time in its 38-year history, the American Film Market is producing a conference about what was once considered taboo at the confab’s Loews Santa Monica digs: television. The Nov. 11 event will address how indie filmmakers can cash in on the tidal wave of new streaming services — Apple TV Plus, Disney Plus, HBO Max, Quibi, Peacock, AMC Theatres on Demand and more — and cable outlets investing billions of dollars to produce and acquire films.

Variety spoke with Anthony Bregman of Likely Story, which has a first-look production deal with Netflix; Brad Feinstein of Romulus Entertainment, a producer of Apple TV Plus’ first big feature, “The Banker”; attorney Elsa Ramo; and other industry vets to find out what streamers are looking for, how producers can get in the door and how this new paradigm is impacting indies.

“We’re looking to triple our output,” says Disney Channel VP of original movies Lauren Kisilevsky,

Lucy Boynton to Play British Rock Icon Marianne Faithfull in New Film

  • Popsugar
Lucy Boyton will be stepping into the iconic shoes of rock singer Marianne Faithfull in an upcoming biopic, Deadline reports. While details about the film are incredibly slim at the moment, Boynton is reportedly in talks to also make her debut as executive producer when production begins next Summer. This is an exciting move for Boynton, who portrayed Freddie Mercury's partner Mary Austin, alongside Rami Malek in Bohemian Rhapsody, and previously played Raphina, a musician's love interest in the musical drama Sing Street.

It's unclear which stage of Faithfull's highly publicised life the film with cover - and there's a lot to choose from. Faithfull was born in England and gained huge popularity in the 1960s during the British Invasion in the United States with her single "As Tears Go By." She later dated Mick Jagger for a few years at the height of her fame, but the pair

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’s Lucy Boynton Eyes Her Own Rock Star Tale With Marianne Faithfull Film

  • Deadline
‘Bohemian Rhapsody’s Lucy Boynton Eyes Her Own Rock Star Tale With Marianne Faithfull Film
Exclusive: After playing the love of Freddie Mercury’s life in Bohemian Rhapsody, Lucy Boynton’s next role will be playing iconic rock singer Marianne Faithfull, sources said. Boynton is in talks to star and make her debut as an executive producer, in a film that likely will begin production next summer. Waiting to get more details on creative and backer but the film is real, I’m reliably told.

Born into upper crust society with a father who was a British intelligence officer and a mother whose own father was an Austrian-Hungarian nobleman, Faithfull became a wildly successful international singer during the British Invasion with her hit As Tears Go By. Her romantic relationship with Mick Jagger and her influence on one of the most creative periods for the Rolling Stones — You Can’t Always Get What You Want and Wild Horses were two songs she influenced — became an overshadowing factor.

‘Modern Love’ Review: Star-Studded Anthology Wears Its Heart on Its Sleeve

‘Modern Love’ Review: Star-Studded Anthology Wears Its Heart on Its Sleeve
In the second episode of Modern Love, Amazon’s anthology series based on the famous New York Times column, a journalist played by Catherine Keener tells us, “Sometimes, you realize that true love, in its absolute form, has many purposes in life. It’s not actually just about bringing babies into the world, or romance, or soul mates, or even lifelong companionship.”

Keener’s character is part of a story (along with Dev Patel as the founder of a dating app) that is entirely about romance and lifelong companionship — specifically,

TV Review: Amazon’s ‘Modern Love’

TV Review: Amazon’s ‘Modern Love’
In theory, a series based on “Modern Love,” the wildly popular “New York Times” column about real life relationships, is a slam dunk. There’s no shortage of material, it already has an audience, and there’s no premise more open-ended than “love.” All a TV version of “Modern Love” had to do was pick compelling stories, connect some narrative dots, and cast a handful of beautiful people to give it a glossier finish than it ever had in print.

Amazon’s adaptation, developed by “Sing Street” writer/director John Carney, is a success on exactly one of these fronts. You’ll hardly find a more charismatic and photogenic cast than this one, which includes actors like Dev Patel, Anne Hathaway, Catherine Keener, Andrew Scott and Tina Fey to tell a different story in every episode. It’s tempting to feel a tiny twinge of warmth as they turn their luminous,

‘Riot Girls’ Film Review: Teens Battle It Out in a World Without Adults

‘Riot Girls’ Film Review: Teens Battle It Out in a World Without Adults
Potter’s Bluff used to be a nice place to live. Idyllic, even. Then, we’re told during the comic-book-style intro to “Riot Girls,” a mysterious wasting disease all but destroyed the entire population — except the kids, that is.

Jovanka Vuckovic’s feature directorial debut has a punk-rock energy befitting the rebellious youths who inhabit it, a not-so-merry band of survivors doing what they can to eke out an existence in post-apocalyptic suburbia circa 1995.

On one side of that conflict are the villainous Westside Titans, a militia-esque group of jocks easily identified by their blue-and-yellow letterman jackets, and on the other are the ragtag Eastsiders. There’s something of a revenge-of-the-nerds dynamic to it, only instead of nerds, it’s misfits more generally; though suspicious of outsiders, they’re generally welcoming of anyone in need.

‘Modern Love’ Trailer: The Amazon Anthology’s Huge Cast Is Ready to Ever-So-Gently Tug At Your Heartstrings
In the latest series to make the jump from podcast to screen, “Modern Love” is on its way to Amazon Prime Video. With both based on the long-running New York Times column of the same name, the TV version is just a month away from making its debut. Told in an anthology format, the series dramatizes a handful of some of the best-loved stories that first appeared in print.

Some of these “Modern Love” TV episodes center around stories that are closer to a traditional rom-com meet-cute (albeit with a surprise or two up its sleeve). But as with all forms of “Modern Love,” this looks to be a cross-section of emotions that doesn’t just focus on romance.

Japan’s ‘Weathering With You’ Set for China Theatrical Release
Weathering With You,” the hit Japanese animation directed by Makoto Shinkai, is set for a theatrical release in mainland Chinese theaters. Chinese state media reported on Monday that the film had been approved by China’s censors, but said that the film had not yet been given a release date.

After his previous hit “Your Name,” “Weathering is Shinkai’s second film to pass the JPY100 million mark ($94 million) mark at the Japanese box office.

Movie Review – Blinded by the Light (2019)

Blinded by the Light, 2019.

Directed by Gurinder Chadha.

Starring Viveik Kalra, Kulvinder Ghir, Nell Williams, Aaron Phagura, Meera Ganatra, Hayley Atwell, Rob Brydon, Dean-Charles Chapman, Frankie Fox, and Sally Phillips.

Synopsis:

In 1987 during the austere days of Thatcher’s Britain, a teenager learns to live life, understand his family and find his own voice through the music of Bruce Springsteen.

Confession time. I had never listened to a Bruce Springsteen song until I saw Blinded by the Light at the Sundance Film Festival. Sure, I knew about him and knew the titles to some of his most famous songs – but I hadn’t listened to a song in full and had therefore absolutely no emotional connection to his music. This is to say, I was converted into a full-on fan of “The Boss” after I had the time of my life watching Gurinder Chadha’s (Bend it Like Beckham) newest film,
