Clint Eastwood’s ‘Sully’ filmed almost entirely with IMAX cameras

A miracle landing deserves an epic-scale shooting. That’s why director Clint Eastwood has chosen to film Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Sully” – the airborne thriller based on true events — almost entirely with new ALEXA IMAX® 65mm cameras.

As a result, audiences will see the so-called `miracle on the Hudson’ depicted in stunning clarity.

And exclusively in IMAX® theatres, “Sully” will be presented in an expanded IMAX 1.9:1 aspect ratio and fill more of the IMAX screen – offering moviegoers 26% more of the image than standard cinemas for a truly immersive experience.

“Sully” stars Oscar winner Tom Hanks as Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger.

On January 15, 2009, the world witnessed the “Miracle on the Hudson” when Captain “Sully” Sullenberger glided his disabled plane onto the frigid waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. However, even as Sully was being heralded by the public and the media for his unprecedented feat of aviation skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy his reputation and his career.

“Sully” also stars Aaron Eckhart as Sully’s co-pilot, Jeff Skiles, and Oscar nominee Laura Linney as Sully’s wife, Lorraine Sullenberger.

Eastwood is directing the film from a screenplay by Todd Komarnicki, based on the book Highest Duty by Sullenberger and Jeffrey Zaslow.

The ALEXA IMAX 65mm camera that Eastwood used in filming “Sully” is a next-generation revolutionary 2D digital camera developed through a partnership between ARRI and IMAX for use by today’s leading filmmakers working in the IMAX® format. The camera, when combined with IMAX’s digital re-mastering process, delivers the highest level of digital image capture and playback resulting in stunning lifelike images with pristine clarity, incredibly fine detail, vivid colors and a higher dynamic range for superior contrast.

Most films today are presented in an aspect ratio called CinemaScope (2.40:1). When a film is presented in CinemaScope, it is cropped and uses only part of the image the movie camera captures. This is the reason most ordinary screens are very wide but not particularly high.

With “Sully,” IMAX provided Eastwood with the ability to use an expanded aspect ratio for the film’s IMAX presentation during production through filming with the extremely high-resolution IMAX® camera.

Opening across the Philippines on Thursday, Sept 8, 2016 in IMAX and regular cinemas, “Sully” is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Bradley Cooper reunites with ‘Hangover’ director for ‘War Dogs’

Four-time Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper stars in and works as producer of Warner Bros. Pictures’ new comedic drama “War Dogs” from director Todd Phillips (“The Hangover” trilogy).

“War Dogs” marks the first film Cooper and Phillips produced together under their production company, Joint Effort, which was formed in 2014.

Based on a true story, “War Dogs” follows two friends in their early 20s living in Miami Beach during the Iraq War who exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on U.S. Military contracts. Starting small, Efraim (Jonah Hill) and David (Miles Teller) begin raking in big money and are living the high life. But the pair gets in over their heads when they land a 300 million dollar deal to arm the Afghan Military—a deal that puts them in business with some very shady people, not the least of which turns out to be the U.S. Government.

Despite their success, Efraim and David are still relatively small fish in the international arms dealer pond, where one of the biggest fish is a man named Henry Girard. Bradley Cooper, who plays the role, says, “Henry is definitely not somebody you would ever want to cross in any way, shape or form. Don’t let his poor eyesight or the thick prescription glasses fool you; they are no indication of how dangerous he can be. He has been banned from doing work with the U.S. military because he’s on a terrorist watch list, but Henry still has access to a tremendous amount of ammunition that Efraim and David need to solidify a deal worth $300 million, so they get hung up with him.”

Phillips notes, “Henry is that guy who’s been on both sides of every conflict. He doesn’t have a political standing; he just likes when people fight because it’s great for business and the character of Efraim loves that attitude. So when they finally meet him at an arms convention in Las Vegas, it’s a big moment for Efraim to sit across from his hero.”

Phillips goes on to reveal, “Henry is an amalgamation of different people. These guys start crossing the wrong kind of people in an attempt to fulfill this deal and then make it a little more profitable, and it becomes dangerous for them. But we had to simplify it, as you do in making movies, so it’s represented in this made-up character.”

Cooper adds, “One thing the movie shows is how susceptible someone can be when everything is put in front of him on a silver platter and how people deal with excess differently.”

Cooper, who shared in Phillips’ brand of camaraderie as part of the infamous Wolfpack, observes, “‘War Dogs’ feels very much like a natural progression in Todd’s evolution as a filmmaker because you have male characters that don’t feel so far away from his wheelhouse, yet there’s an edginess that takes it to the next level. The great thing about Todd is he’s always had his finger on the pulse of what’s cool. He can take a story with a dark texture and give it a patina that makes it humorous and exciting.”

Cooper feels the film’s subject matter of greed and the American Dream is ripe for discussion. “Our goal was to tell a compelling story in an entertaining way, but you never know the kind of conversations it might spark. It’s a movie people could be talking about and debating long after they leave the theatre because the story has so many layers and is still very much in step with the times in which we live. I think people will find it especially interesting that the program that started it all is still very much in effect.”

Now playing in Philippine cinemas, “War Dogs” is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

ToFarm Film Festival opens door for aspiring filmmakers on its second year

TOFARM Film Festival has recently concluded its first leg, currently doing a run in the provinces starting off with Central Luzon last August 24 until 30, 2016. Cebu and Davao will follow shortly in September and October respectively. The project was born out of passion to initiate an agricultural revolution where people are more involved with the struggles of the farmers and our kababayans in the similar sectors. With its successful first run, it now opens another chapter as it creates a brand new challenge for the filmmakers on its second year.

Last August 25, 2016, a thanksgiving party was held at EDSA Shangri-La Hotel to celebrate a successful first year for the festival. Despite being young in the film world, TOFARM is continuously creating a name for itself as it opens up opportunities, not just for the aspiring filmmakers but also for its very own subjects and story inspiration, our kababayans in the agricultural sector. But guests were also in for a surprise as Dr. Milagros How, Executive Vice President of Universal Harvester Inc., officially announced the opening of its second leg.

Young, fresh and now – these are the words that best describe the theme for this new run. While the first year was focused on giving the public a glimpse of the farmers’ plight, for year two, TOFARM looks forward to the future. With the theme “Planting Seeds of Change”, attention is channeled to leveling up the agricultural sector by merging the traditional to the modern, in thinking process, strategies, lifestyle and cultures. It now adds a chapter to that story of our farmer’s everyday realities as it tackles goal setting and plotting of a dynamic vision for the whole industry. Farmers and members of similar communities are now left with a challenge to ride with the fast changing lives of Filipinos, fluctuating supply and demand, overnight trends to name a few. The overall landscape is shifting to something more demanding that can only be addressed by creativity and innovation. The agricultural sector should be able to adapt to this.

Similar to last year’s exercise, a total of six (6) film scripts will be selected by the Festival’s screening committee. Each would be earning a 1.5 million pesos grant that they can use to put to life their vision. The Best Film shall receive Php500,000.00, 2nd Best Film at Php400,000.00, 3rd Best Film to bring home Php300,000 and for the Special Jury Award, Php100,000. All these cash prize plus the iconic TOFARM Film Fest Trophy will be brought home by the winners. Other awards await. Everyone is encouraged to send in their entries until November 18, 2016.

TOFARM Film Festival is a project pioneered by Universal Harvester Inc., to ignite the agricultural revolution in the country through a more entertaining and creative medium, film. This is a brain child by Dr. Milagros How, Executive Vice President of UHI with award winning film director Maryo J. Delos Reyes.

Ode to My Father

“Ode to My Father” revolves around Deok-soo (Hwang Jung-Min), a hardworking man who does everything to provide for his mother and other siblings while setting aside his own ambitions. Deok-soo becomes the breadwinner of his family at an early age after his father and sister are tragically separated from the rest of the family during the evacuation of Hungnam in 1950.


The Beauty Inside

“The Beauty Inside” centers on Woo-jin (Kim Dae-Myung), a furniture designer who wakes up as a different person everyday regardless of gender, race, and age. He has resigned himself to a life alone until he falls in love with Hong E-soo (Han Hyo-joo). Since his physical identity changes frequently, he continues to visit her daily, acting as a new customer. Woo-jin finally musters up the courage to ask her out on a date. Knowing he will change once he sleeps, attempts to stay awake for as long as he can. However, Woo-jin no longer can fight sleep. He passes out and wakes up with a new face.


Confession of Murder

“Confession of Murder” is about Lee Du-seok (Park Si-hoo) who published an autobiography titled I am the Murderer, claiming responsibility for a series of murders that took place 17 years ago and describing all his murders in great detail. His book becomes a bestseller because of the author’s charming looks and his claims of repentance for his crimes. However, Detective Choi Hyeong-goo (Jung Jae-young), who was in charge of the investigation of all the ten murders, insists that Lee is in fact an imposter. Detective Choi chases Lee and challenges him to tell where the eleventh victim is, while Han Ji-Soo (Kim Young-ae), who is the mother of his last victim, seeks revenge with her family and friends. Out of the blue, another killer appears, casting doubt to whether Lee is the real serial killer.


The Suspect

Gong Yoo plays as Ji Dong-chul in “The Suspect.” Ji Dong-chul is a former top North Korean operative who is now a defector after being betrayed by his own country. His life is thrown into chaos after he’s framed for the murder of his boss and is forced to go on the run, chased by General Min Se Hoon (Park Hee Soon). Aided by a feisty documentary maker (Yoo Da In), Dong-chul tries to get to the bottom of the assassination, linked to a mysterious formula which may or may not be for a new and deadly chemical weapon. With Se Hoon and the director of national intelligence (Jo Sung Ha) on his trail, things get personal for Dong-chul when it becomes clear that the conspiracy also involves the killing of his wife and child years back.


How to Use Guys with Secret Tips

“How to Use Guys with Secret Tips” tells the story of Choi Bo-Na (Lee Si-Young) an assistant TV commercial editor for five years. Endless nights of overwork have caused her appearance to be a complete mess.

After a grueling outdoor commercial shoot, her coworkers left back for Seoul without her. Stranded on a beach in the middle of nowhere, she comes upon a unique stall that sells various instructional tapes. While browsing the tapes, self-styled guru Dr. Swarski (Park Yeong-gyu) appears and urges her to buy his masterwork, “Manual on How to Use Men.” Dr. Swarski tells her that it will give her the skills she needs to find success and happiness. After reluctantly following the instructions, Bo-na’s life takes a drastic turn. She begins to experience professional success and men start wooing her including top hallyu star, Lee Seung-jae (Oh Jung-se).

Zac Efron, Anna Kendrick star in R-rated comedy ‘Mike and Dave Need Wedding Date’

It all started with a Craiglist ad that became viral when real life brothers Mike and Dave Stangle are looking for dates to bring to a wedding – sounds crazy but it really happened. Their story reaches the big screen in the hilarious and aptly titled “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” starring Anna Kendrick, Zac Efron, Adam Devine and Aubrey Plaza.

Mike (Devine) and Dave Stangle (Efron) are young, adventurous, fun-loving and, some would even say, obnoxious. The “some” would include other members of the Stangle family. So when their sister Jeanie announces she’s getting married, the family holds an intervention, demanding that Mike and Dave bring respectable dates. To fulfill their family’s request Mike and Dave turn to the best source of decent, respectable girls they can think of: Craigslist. They place an ad promising that their selected companions will receive an all-expense paid trip to Hawaii and the chance to participate in all of the Stangle family wedding-related activities.

Along with its R-rated humor, “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” has unexpected moments of heart. Jake Szymanski, who makes his feature directorial debut after helming hilarious short form comedies on “Funny or Die,” says: “The Stangle family is very tightly-knit, even when they disagree. They’re very proud of being Stangles, so they’re just trying to have one family event that doesn’t get completely screwed up by Mike and Dave.”

When tuning in to their back-and-forth banter, it becomes clear that the Stangles’ primary interest is entertaining each other. If anyone else thinks they are funny too, well, so much the better. Before long the idea of a book emerged. Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (and a thousand cocktails) continues with the same volley of dialogue and ideas; Mike does a chapter, then Dave does a chapter and so on.

Whatever their differences, Mike and Dave are tight. “They have a symbiotic relationship,” says Efron. “They can’t exist without one another. They’re as much best friends as they are brothers.”

Mike and Dave certainly know how to rock a room, but they’re small-timers compared to their dates. As background to Alice (Kendrick) and Tatiana (Plaza), director Szymanski observes that they “have a history of misadventures that have taken them around the world. They can travel around the globe with only a couple of backpacks, and have stories to tell for ages.”

“The characters were great inventions of our writers,” notes Ready. “Tatiana is a mix of danger and sexuality, and everything she does is pretty extreme. Alice is a wild child who is always unpredictable. They are in such different places in their lives, and yet these wedding dates are just what they need.”

The burgeoning brotherly bond between Devine and Efron was facilitated by the opportunity to spend considerable time together on location. Says Devine: “Zac and I arrived in Oahu two weeks before production started, and we didn’t know anyone else there. Who else am I going to hang out with? So we obviously were just going to hang out with each other every day and that was great planning on Fox’s part, because we became the best of buds. By the end of production, he says with a laugh, “we finished each other’s sentences in a weird way.”

Rated R-18 by the MTRCB, “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” opens September 14, 2016 in cinemas from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

Daniel Radcliffe goes undercover cop in ‘Imperium’

Daniel Radcliffe, who rocketed to worldwide stardom in the phenomenal “Harry Potter” films, stars anew in the intense action thriller “Imperium.” Inspired by real events, the movie is directed by Daniel Ragussis and also stars Toni Collette, Tracy Letts, Devin Druid, Pawel Szajda with Nestor Carbonell and Sam Trammell.

In “Imperium,” Radcliffe takes on the role of Nate Foster, a young, idealistic FBI agent who goes undercover to take down a radical right-wing terrorist group. The bright up-and-coming analyst must confront the challenge of sticking to a new identity while maintaining his real principles as he navigates the dangerous underworld of white supremacy.

“Imperium” co-writer Mike German has the kind of pedigree that commands respect: he served in the FBI for 16 years, 12 of them as an undercover agent tasked with infiltrating dangerous white supremacy groups in order to prevent domestic terrorist attacks. German successfully embedded himself with extremist groups on multiple occasions, leading to criminal convictions. German’s real life experiences infiltrating homegrown white supremacist terror cells intent on starting race wars, form the basis of the “Imperium” screenplay.

Setting the movie in the present day was something German and Ragussis quickly agreed on, believing the film could better address important law enforcement and terrorism prevention issues that have dominated the national conversation. Therefore, the film brings attention to the FBI’s seldom discussed racial-ethnic mapping program, in which American Muslims and other minority populations are controversially targeted.

“Imperium” also explores the challenges faced by FBI agents working with limited resources to prevent domestic terrorism from white supremacists and other right-wing extremist threats. With the government prioritizing the fight against the Islamic terrorist threat, FBI agents working on battling domestically cultivated perils often must fight for funding and proper support.

In the end, Mike German expressed admiration for Ragussis’s efforts to create a film of thematic and emotional integrity true to what he experienced in the field, commenting, “Daniel’s unique vision and dedication to telling this story in an accurate, non-sensationalistic manner impressed me from day one. The final product depicts the inner workings of the FBI and undercover agents in particular, more accurately than any film I’ve seen. I couldn’t be more pleased.”

“Imperium” opens September 14, 2016 in cinemas nationwide from OctoArts Films International.

Meryl Streep inspires with true story of ‘Florence Foster Jenkins’

From Stephen Frears, the director of “The Queen” and “Philomena” comes an unforgettable heartwarming and funny story that will bring the audience to tears in “Florence Foster Jenkins,” the inspiring true story of the eponymous New York heiress who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. Starring two of the best loved actors worldwide, Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant, the film celebrates the human spirit, the power of music, and the passion of amateurs everywhere.

The voice Florence (Streep) heard in her head was divine, but to the rest of the world it was hilariously awful. At private recitals, her devoted husband and manager, St. Claire Bayfield (Grant) realized he had perhaps bitten off more than he could chew.

“Florence Foster Jenkins’” score is composed by Alexandre Desplat (“The Queen,” “The King’s Speech”) who incorporates wonderful music from popular songs to golden classics.

“Florence Foster Jenkins” opens August 24, 2016 from OctoArts Films International.

Viral true-to-life ad turned movie in ‘Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates’

Based on the real story of brothers Mike and Dave Stangle, who posted the following ad on Craigslist stating their need for wedding dates for their cousin’s wedding: TWO MEN NEED WEDDING DATES : My brother and I are looking for wedding dates. We’ve been told by the bride that bringing dates is “mandatory” so we “won’t harass all of my friends all night” and “stay under control.” Rather than ask some fringe women in our lives to go and face the inevitable ‘does this mean he wants to take it to the next level!?’ questions, we’d rather bring complete strangers and just figure it out. Still reading? In anticipation of your questions we’ve developed an FAQ section below.

The ad became a viral phenomenon in hours, and the story soon spread from the internet to media outlets the world over. It also displayed a remarkable prescience; the boys estimated an 85% chance of their story becoming a movie, though they said, “we refuse the right to let Ashton Kutcher play either one of us.”

Well, as luck would have it, their story is now a movie – “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” and there isn’t a Kutcher in sight. In the movie, the titular Mike (Adam DeVine) and Dave (Zac Efron) are also brothers, warned by their family to smarten-up their hard-partying ways before their sister’s wedding, and to bring two respectable girls as dates. But the girls they end up choosing, played by Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza, aren’t quite as wholesome as they expect. And as the real Stangles explain, some artistic license has been taken to turn the film into this year’s hottest R-rated comedy.

The core of the film’s comedy and much of its heart is the brotherly bond between the two guys. “Mike and Dave are close,” states director Jake Szymanski. “They’ve grown up together, still live together, work together, party together, and ultimately learn some lessons together.”

“Mike and Dave adore their sister,” confirms Efron. “Their mantra is: ‘We’re doin’ it for Jeanie! Everything we do is for Jeanie!’ They protect and love her and have put her on a pedestal. She forgives them for all the mischief they do.”

To make this wedding go smoothly for Jeanie, Mike and Dave are told they must bring dates to the nuptials. “So, Mike and Dave come up with a ‘foolproof’ plan to find respectable dates,” says Devine. “They troll for them on Craigslist—where they can also find lawnmowers and stuff.”

While the filmmakers strove to capture specific aspects of the siblings’ personalities, the physical differences between the real and reel Stangles were striking. “I want to say that Mike and Dave are around 11 feet tall,” Devine notes. “They made me and Zac Efron [who plays Dave] feel like little elf people.”

And what did (real) Mike and Dave make of this whole “Hollywood” experience? “They got guys to play us who are not as good looking as us, or as tall, but they are better actors,” says Dave. “I’ll give them that. And Stephen Root, who plays our dad, seems to like us more than our real dad.”

This year’s hottest R-18 comedy date movie – “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” will open in cinemas nationwide on September 14, 2016 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

‘Don’t Breathe’ tops U.S. weekend box office with $26.1-M

August 29, 2016 – Columbia Pictures’ gripping suspense thriller “Don’t Breathe” – which Variety hails as “a muscular exercise in brutal, relentless peril” – spooked the U.S. box-office with a chilling $26.1-million, easily opening at No.1 for the Aug. 26-28 weekend.

It joins a long list of recent horror films such as “The Purge: Election Year,” “The Conjuring 2,” “Lights Out” and “The Shallows” that have all found success with audiences.

“Don’t Breathe” cost less than $10 million to produce, but it more than doubled its production budget in a single weekend, after rolling out across 3,051 locations. The film follows a trio of friends breaks into the house of a blind recluse confident of an easy score only to find themselves in a terrifying life-or-death struggle.

“This film is going to be a big moneymaker for us,” said Rory Bruer, Sony’s distribution chief. “We knew we had something special here. This is a film that’s all about keeping people jumping out of their seats and holding onto the person next to them.”

The No.1 launch of “Don’t Breathe” in the U.S. bodes well for the thriller’s box-office prospects in the Philippines as the film rolls out in local cinemas starting Wednesday, Aug. 31.

The Filipino audience are great horror fans, and the film’s favorable R-13 rating from the MTRCB will likely boost the attraction core genre moviegoers.

“Don’t Breathe” created a thunderstorm of excitement and wild buzz when it premiered at the recent South By South West (SXSW) film festival, with some critics describing it as “the best suspense thriller in the last decade.” Now, Philippine audiences will discover why the film has driven reviewers at the edge of their seats.

John DeFore of The Hollywood Reporter writes, “the lean and mean pic offers scares aplenty and at least a couple of game-changing twists.”

Meanwhile, Edward Douglas, of the New York Daily News underscores that the film “takes you into far darker territory than anticipated.”

“Don’t Breathe” stars Jane Levy (“Evil Dead”), Dylan Minnette (“Goosebumps”), Daniel Zovatto (“It Follows”) and Stephen Lang (“Avatar”). Fede Alvarez (“Evil Dead”) directs from a script co-written with Rodo Sayagues (Evil Dead). Producers are Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Fede Alvarez.

In his sophomore feature, Alvarez goes for the jugular with an unapologetically brutal and twisted horror-thriller that pits a trio of thieves against an unexpectedly dangerous adversary. Shocking and enthralling, Alvarez’s masterful, visually stunning thriller maintains a frenzied pace to the last chilling minute.

Opening across the Philippines on August 31, 2016, “Don’t Breathe” is distributed in the Philippines by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
