==================================================

A video game villain wants to be a hero and sets out to fulfill his dream, but his quest brings havoc to the whole arcade where he lives.

Official: WHEEL OF TIME has sold lots of books

Tor Books have put up an interesting - if rather hyperbolic - video discussing the Wheel of Time sequence and its impact and influence on the fantasy genre. Obviously as a marketing release from the publisher, it's a bit of a fluff piece (the considerably mixed reception WoT has had in the wider world is not mentioned), but it does feature some interesting new info on the sales figures of the series.



Yup, the oft-quoted figure of 44 million sales, it transpires, refers to the United States and Canada alone, not a worldwide figure. This is surprising news and since it comes straight from the horse's mouth (in this case Tom Doherty's, the head of Tor Books), must be taken as fact. Given the normal ratio of North American sales to the rest of the world is about half of the total sales, that should put worldwide sales of Wheel of Time in the region of 80-90 million. Which is a lot, and considerably more than previously thought.

There's some interesting stuff in the rest of the video (which includes soundbites from Brandon Sanderson and Pat Rothfuss), although I think we can take the claim that 'lots happens on every single page' as a slight exaggeration of the amount of incident in the late-middle volumes of the series.

For comparison's sake, worldwide sales of A Song of Ice and Fire are closing rapidly on 20 million (of considerably fewer books) worldwide, whilst Terry Pratchett's Discworld series (which has considerably more) recently passed 70 million.

DRAGON AGE III will be a next-gen title

It's been claimed that Dragon Age III has been upgraded from a PS3/X-Box 360 title and will instead launch on the next-generation versions of both consoles. A date of (financial year) 2014 is given, tentatively giving credence to reports that the new consoles will launch before the end of 2013 and Dragon Age III may be a launch title for them.



Not entirely surprising news, especially given the rumours that BioWare may make Dragon Age III much more open and freeform than any of their previous titles (and more like Bethesda's RPGs).

It's a story about a man and a woman. He is alone. She is married. Both mountaineers, both survivors of cardiac operation. He has in his chest the heart of a young woman, she has a mitral valve.

When You Find Me, Bryce Dallas Howard, USA,
A young boy asks his pregnant mother if he will like his baby brother, and he asks her if she has a brother. This sends the mother, Lisie, on a reverie of her relationship with her older sister, Aurora, when they were kids and their mother was dying. Flashbacks show the contrasting reactions of the two girls, Aurora's anger and Lisie's innocent determination to find her mother. The boy's questions also prompt Lisie to visit Aurora and to tell her a story.

Perhaps the most attention grabber short from list is the one directed by none other than Sofia Loren's son, Carlo Ponti, and starring Nastassja Kinski, Julian Sands and Enrico Lo Verso. The cast is fantastic!  But from watching videos the French/Belgian production looks/feels great and the star is none other than Matthias Schoenaerts.

==================================================

An expansion of the universe from Robert Ludlum's novels, centered on a new hero whose stakes have been triggered by the events of the previous three films.

85th Academy Awards Visual Effects Shortlist

The Academy announced today that ten (10) films remain in the running in the VFX category and here they are in alphabetical order.

The Amazing Spider-Man
Cloud Atlas
The Dark Night Rises
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
John Carter
Life of Pi
Marvel's The Avengers
Prometheus
Skyfall
Snow White and the Huntsman

As expected most of the above films are blockbusters that rely in exceptional visual effects to move audiences. But in the above list there are two films that I have to see, Cloud Atlas by Lana and Andy Wachowski with Tom Tykwer; plus Ang Lee's Life of Pi.

2013 Sundance - A Very Different Preview - Part 2

Continues from Part 1. If the news in the previous post weren't enough surprising for you, then let's continue exploring other films that have unusual stories centered in women.

Jill Soloway

Jill Soloway is not really known to me even when have seen most of the TV shows she has written for (Six Feet Under, Grey's Anatomy, United States of Tara, Dirty Sexy Money); then just learned that she was behind the "lesbian stories" told in some of those shows but most interesting is to find that her previous work is Valencia (aka Valencia: The Movie/s) a collaborative film project by twenty one queer filmmakers each shooting 5-7 minute short based on a chapter from the underground classic memoir into a kaleidoscopic vision of San Francisco's Mission District in the early 90's during the rise of a punk lesbian diaspora told through the experiences of Michelle, a single rootless twenty-something searching for sex and love, drugs and adventure. If you wish to read more about this movie go here.

But going back to Sundance that will screen Jill Soloway's debut feature film, Afternoon Delight, which she directed and wrote the script, and considering everything I learned today about her, have to admit that became very interested in her film even do there is not much info about it in the net but check the fest synopsis.

In this sexy, dark comedy, a lost L.A. housewife puts her idyllic hipster life in jeopardy when she tries to rescue a stripper by taking her in as a live-in nanny. Cast: Kathryn Hahn, Juno Temple, Josh Radnor, Jane Lynch.

The housewife is played by Kathryn Hahn and from photo dare to deduce that the stripper is played by Juno Temple. I just hope that as much as Soloway has contributed to lesbian stories in television, she also contributes with a lesbian-interest storyline in this film. But will not be until more information becomes available that we will be able to find what story is really about.



Still, based on what I saw in her short Una Hora Por Favora I like her filmmaking style even do her humor is not exactly the kind of humor I enjoy; but I'm interested in watching this film.

Lynn Shelton

After watching Your Sister's Sister I became really interested in the work of Lynn Shelton and her new film Touchy Feely also in US Dramatic competition seems could be interesting especially because has Rosemarie Dewitt playing the leading role as a massage therapist who suddenly finds the human body repulsive. Check the synopsis from the fest.

A massage therapist is unable to do her job when stricken with a mysterious and sudden aversion to bodily contact. Meanwhile, her uptight brother's foundering dental practice receives new life when clients seek out his “healing touch.”

The cast includes Ellen Page, an actress that I like but suddenly disappeared into low-profile roles and/or movies and just hope she shines again in this indie movie which was the milieu that made her well-known. I'm interested in finding what Shelton will give us in this movie that know probably will surprise me once again.



Shelton has been called Sundance's "L'enfant chéri" as her recent films have been showcased at Sundance, Humpday in 2009 and Your Sister's Sister in 2012; her newest is just following what it seems has become a tradition due to the quality of her films.

Liz W. Garcia

Not familiar with Garcia's work even do have seen some of the TV shows she has written for, like Dawson's Creek and Cold Case. But her film The Lifeguard also in the US Dramatic competition seems could have an interesting story. Check the synopsis from fest.

A former valedictorian quits her reporter job in New York and returns to the place she last felt happy: her childhood home in Connecticut. She gets work as a lifeguard and starts a dangerous relationship with a troubled teenager.

Another film that has not much information in the net but here is a still from the film where Kristen Bell has the lead role.



Perhaps due to the casting and from the eight female directors in the US Dramatic competition, this is the film that I'm interested less in watching, but have to wait for info to become available to determine if film is interesting or not.

Lake Bell

I'm familiar with Lake Bell as an actress as has many big and small screen supporting roles but have no idea what a film directed and written by her could be like, especially when is her debut feature film, is an indie comedy plus also she is performing in what could be her first leading role. Not really interested but check the fest synopsis, cast and film still

In a World... An underachieving vocal coach is motivated by her father, the king of movie-trailer voice-overs, to pursue her aspirations of becoming a voiceover star. Amidst pride, sexism and family dysfunction, she sets out to change the voice of a generation. Cast: Lake Bell, Demetri Martin, Rob Corddry, Michaela Watkins, Ken Marino, Fred Melamed.

Maybe when we learn more about Bell's film I could be more interested in watching.



Jerusha Hess

Known as the half of the Jared and Jerusha Hess husband and wife filmmaking team behind movies like Napoleon Dynamite or Nacho Libre, Jerusha jumps to direct her first film Austenland based on the novel by Shannon Hale with a script co written by Hess and Hale. Check the synopsis from fest plus the cast.

Thirtysomething, single Jane is obsessed with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in Pride and Prejudice. On a trip to an English resort, her fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman become more real than she ever imagined. Cast: Keri Russell, JJ Feild, Bret McKenzie, Jennifer Coolidge, Georgia King, James Callis.

Perhaps the better known person from those involved in film is none other than Stephenie Meyer, which is one of the film producers. Not proud of what I'm about to say but I know will watch this USA and UK production as I see everything where Keri Russell is in, besides story could be "sweet" and entertaining.



I have the feeling that this unprecedented milestone that Sundance Film Festival has achieved is more than remarkable for being 50-50, have the work of some known female directors and most of all is an amazing moment for openly lesbian filmmakers, lesbian-interest audiences and the community in general as not often have something to celebrate, much less in cinema related events.

From the other six male directed films in the US Dramatic competition only one more has what seems is a women-centered story.

Mother of George / U.S.A. (Director: Andrew Dosunmu, Screenwriter: Darci Picoult) — A story about a woman willing to do anything and risk everything for her marriage. Cast: Isaach De Bankolé, Danai Gurira, Anthony Okungbowa, Yaya Alafia, Bukky Ajayi.

In the end there are 9 out of the 16 stories told about women, which is also surely a first. Nevertheless we have to consider that the two movies that had more buzz before the festival announcement are none of the ones in the first post or above. They are films with male directors, both have male-centered stories and are included in the following list that completes the US Dramatic competition lineup.

Ain't Them Bodies Saints / U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: David Lowery) — The tale of an outlaw who escapes from prison and sets out across the Texas hills to reunite with his wife and the daughter he has never met. Cast: Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, Nate Parker, Keith Carradine.

C.O.G. / U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: Kyle Patrick Alvarez) — In the first ever film adaptation of David Sedaris' work, a cocky young man travels to Oregon to work on an apple farm. Out of his element, he finds his lifestyle and notions being picked apart by everyone who crosses his path. Cast: Jonathan Groff, Denis O'Hare, Corey Stoll, Dean Stockwell, Casey Wilson, Troian Bellisario.

Fruitvale / U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: Ryan Coogler) — The true story of Oscar, a 22-year-old Bay Area resident who crosses paths with friends, enemies, family and strangers on the last day of 2008. Cast: Michael B. Jordan, Octavia Spencer, Melonie Diaz, Ahna O'Reilly, Kevin Durand, Chad Michael Murray.

Kill Your Darlings / U.S.A. (Director: John Krokidas, Screenwriters: Austin Bunn, John Krokidas) — An untold story of murder that brought together a young Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs at Columbia University in 1944, providing the spark that led to the birth of an entire generation – their Beat revolution. Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHann, Ben Foster, Michael C. Hall, Jack Huston, Elizabeth Olsen.

The Spectacular Now / U.S.A. (Director: James Ponsoldt, Screenwriters: Scott Neustadter, Michael H. Weber) — Sutter is a high school senior who lives for the moment; Aimee is the introvert he attempts to "save." As their relationship deepens, the lines between right and wrong, friendship and love, and "saving" and corrupting become inextricably blurred. Cast: Miles Teller, Shailene Woodley, Brie Larson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kyle Chandler.

Toy's House / U.S.A. (Director: Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Screenwriter: Chris Galletta) — Three unhappy teenage boys flee to the wilderness where they build a makeshift house and live off the land as masters of their own destiny. Or at least that’s the plan. Cast: Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, Moises Arias, Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Alison Brie.

Upstream Color / U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: Shane Carruth) — A man and woman are drawn together, entangled in the life cycle of an ageless organism. Identity becomes an illusion as they struggle to assemble the loose fragments of wrecked lives. Cast: Amy Seimetz, Shane Carruth, Andrew Sensenig, Thiago Martins.

If you can't guess which had buzz before being in the Sundance US Dramatic competition lineup, let me help you. First, the one where you find Rooney Mara and Cassey Affleck; and second, the movie where you find Daniel Radclife and Elizabeth Olsen. Yes, buzz came because the actors and not the directos.

Can't deny that I'm extremely curious to see how the fest will distribute their awards in this competition that has the most unexpected and surprising lineup. But we have to wait about two months as fest runs from January 17 to 27, 2013.

Cheers!!! ... and many congratulations to the honored women filmmakers and the festival programers that made history with this lineup.

2013 Sundance - A Very Different Preview - Part 1

Because the Sundance Film Festival started to release their program and me getting excited by what I saw yesterday, writing about it became a must as not only there are many female directors but also there are many stories about women which absolutely call my attention.

Today I was reading the news at reputable American newspapers and my spontaneous reaction was that articles were written by male journalists that not only react to the surprising lineup but also to the directors' gender. Take a look at some excerpts.

In what festival programmers say is a Sundance first, fully half of the narrative features were made by women. (...) Many of the films, perhaps as a reflection of the gender of their directors, focus closely on personal, and often highly sexual, relationships.

Sundance, known for championing dark and inscrutable films, has unveiled an unusually accessible — and sellable — competition lineup.

The fact is that this year the lineup has eight (8) of the sixteen (16) films chosen for the dramatic U.S. dramatic competition helmed by women, which is a first for Sundance but also for any top festival in the world! Then you have to agree that -in general- women stories are better told by women, so no one shouldn't be surprised when a 50-50 lineup gives the impression that festival stories are focus on personal relationships plus, as in reality, personal relationships have much to do with sex.

From more than 12,000 submissions, another first for Sundance, 113 feature films were selected and 51 are from first-time filmmakers. But what this year calls the attention is that in the lineup there are some recognizable directors like Cherien Dabis, Lynn Shelton and Chilean Sebastián Silva, among others. The consequence of the 50-50 lineup plus recognizable directors , at least for me, is that this fest edition becomes interesting to follow to learn more about how films are received by critics and more important, if they find distribution in regular and/or new distribution channels.

As soon as the complete lineup is published will do a post, but for starters take a look at some films that called my attention.

Cherien Dabis

The festival high-profile opening slot went to May in the Summer by Cherien Dabis that came to be widely known for her highly praised debut film Amreeka which premiered in 2009 Sundance, was official selection in the Director's Fortnight section of 2009 Cannes where won the FIPRESCI Prize and continued to collect more honors in the festival circuit; but to some of us was already known for being one of the few openly lesbian filmmakers and for being a writer in the television series The L Word.

Written and directed by Dabis, May in the Summer is a USA, Qatar and Jordan production that brings us the surprise that she also performs in the leading role along with extraordinary Hiam Abbass (she was also in Amreeka) in a story that seems compelling as the following synopsis tells.

At the center of the tangled family in May in the Summer is thirty-something Palestinian American May (Cherien Dabis) whose stubborn pride and fear of making herself vulnerable stand in her way of having honest relationships with the people closest to her. As the story opens, May travels to Amman where she’s reunited with her divorced mother Nadine (Hiam Abbass) and younger twenty-something sisters. In the midst of planning her summer wedding, May has one slight problem: Nadine, a devout Christian, disapproves of her Muslim fiancé. Convinced that a mixed marriage is doomed, she plans to boycott the wedding. As if that’s not bad enough, there’s trouble in paradise. But May is too busy trying to prove her mother wrong to take her relationship troubles to heart. Meanwhile, May and her sisters attempt to reconcile with their estranged father only to learn that his new wife suspects he’s having an affair. Faced with family secrets and the fallout of her parents' divorce, May starts to come apart at the seams. But only in facing the reality of what she’s lost can she discover the freedom of letting go. And ultimately, she and her mother learn to accept one another for who they truly are – differences and all.

But from the few publicity material available seems that film will also have some breathtaking visuals.







I'm really excited with Cherien Dabis second feature film and look forward to eventually watch film that know is must be seen for me not only for how much I liked Amreeka but also because Dabis is performing.

Francesca Gregorini

Another film in the US Dramatic Competition that calls my attention is Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes directed and written by none other than Francesca Gregorini, better known as Countess Francesca McKnight Donatella Romana Gregorini di Savignano di Romagna, Ringo Starr's stepdaughter and/or Portia di Rossi's ex. This is her second feature film and many of us have to remember her debut film, Tanner Hall, which she co directed and co wrote with none other than Tatiana von Furstenberg. So, tell me, what are the odds that two of the few openly lesbian filmmakers have films in competition at a top festival? Very low, but finally is happening!

Nevertheless her film could be interesting for the story -especially because the spoilers I read, which I'm not sharing here- but check the official synopsis written by the director.

A troubled girl (Emanuel) becomes preoccupied with her mysterious new neighbor (Linda), who bears a striking resemblance to her dead mother. In offering to baby-sit Linda's newborn, Emanuel unwittingly enters a fragile, fictional world, of which she becomes the gatekeeper.

Have to admit that I'm a bit concerned with the casting as I haven't seen Kaya Scodelario (Emanuel) in the big screen (seen her in UK TV series Skins) and do not enjoy Jessica Biel (Linda) performances; but maybe both can surprise us here plus Alfred Molina (Emanuel father) and Frances O'Connor (Emanuel stepmother) can make the watching more easy to ride experience.





Stacie Passon

If you are not surprised enough to find two openly lesbian filmmakers in the competition, how about finding an unusual lesbian-interest story? But first let's learn about the director. She became known to me when a few days ago won the Spotlight on Women Filmmakers "Live the Dream" grant at the 2012 Gotham awards but is not until finding her debut film in Sundance that I learn the story that Concussion tells. Check the fest synopsis.

After a blow to the head, Abby decides she can't do it anymore. Her life just can't be only about the house, the kids and the wife. She needs more: she needs to be Eleanor.

But without giving too many spoilers check an excerpt from the news that Stacie Passon won the Adrienne Shelly Foundation 6th Annual IFP Labs Director's grant.

Concussion follows Abby, a disengaged wealthy lesbian housewife stuck in the suburbs. After a concussion-inducing hit to the face, something inside her ignites; she craves more than her boring, saturated existence. She buys a loft in the city to fix up and sell. Then, she sees a prostitute, and then another, and is drawn into the life herself.

So yes, probably story will be very unconventional to most lesbian-interest audiences but definitively we have a film here that besides being honored by being in competition at Sundance has already won in the past week two relevant women directing awards. Just fantastic!

To my surprise there was a film video on Youtube but surely due to the buzz Passon has been provoking, the video has become "private". But check a couple of films stills.





Film absolutely has become MUST BE SEEN for me!

I don't like long posts and post has become too long, so please continue reading in Part 2.

2013 Goya Awards News - Ibero-American Films

Thirteen (13) Ibero-American (Latin America plus Portugal) films are being considered to select the five (5) films that will be nominated for the current edition of the Goya Awards.

Most interesting for me is to find in list the acclaimed film from Paraguay, 7 Boxes, that I was expecting to be that country submission to Oscar and look forward to be able to see; but there are more must be seen films -for me- in this list.

These are the films listed by the submitting country.

(*) Argentina: Infancia Clandestina (Clandestine Childhood), Benjamín Ávila, Argentina, Brazil and Spain
Brazil: Febre do rato (Rat Fever), Cláudio Assis, Brazil
Chile: Joven y Alocada (Young and Wild), Marialy Rivas, Chile
Colombia: La Playa, D.C., Juan Andrés Arango, Colombia, Brazil and France
Costa Rica: Tr3s Marías, Francisco "Pako" González, Costa Rica

Ecuador: Pescador, Sebastián Cordero Espinosa, Ecuador and Colombia
Mexico: Después de Lucía (After Lucia), Michel Franco, Mexico and France

(*) As Infancia Clandestina is a Spain co production, film is also being considered in 8 more categories. The same happens with Juan de los Muertos that is also being considered in 19 more categories.

If you wish to check the films that are being considered in each Goya Awards category please go here where you can find info about each film too, available only in Spanish.

Today the academy released the news that from December 5 to 20 those living in Madrid will be able to see the above movies as the screenings will be open to the public, besides being the official screening for Academy members. There are no dates for the nominations announcements or the awards ceremony but I assume that nominations will be announced before January 15 and the ceremony will be after the middle of February -before the Oscars-. As soon as the dates are published will post in calendar.

Graeme's Fantasy Book Review closes its doors

Graeme's Fantasy Book Review is sadly shutting up shop after almost six years of blogging on everything SF.

Graeme and Pat Rothfuss engaging in a terrifying stare-off. Pat might have won this round.

Sad news. Having enjoyed his blog for many years, met Graeme at quite a few signings and had many a great chat with him, it's a shame to see him hanging up the blogging gloves. Best wishes to him in his future endeavours!

==================================================

MERLIN to conclude after Season 5

The currently-airing fifth season of Merlin will be the last, according to the BBC and the producers.



This news came as a bit of a surprise. When the show started in 2008 the producers claimed to have a 'five-year-plan' for the show which they would follow until its end. However, last year the producers also claimed to have ditched this plan in favour of the letting the show continue as long as it was popular, and were actively planning a sixth season and beyond.

The reasons for this about-face are unclear, but the BBC, actors and producers are all claiming that the show has come to a natural conclusion and it hasn't been cancelled. In fact, the show is still pulling in seven million viewers a week, which compares favourably to what Doctor Who does in the same timeslot.

The current favourite theory is that since the show was originally planned to last five years, the actors were only contracted for five years. When the producers decided to continue the show beyond that point, they entered contract re-negotiations with the actors. Since most of the actors (Tony Head and Richard Wilson aside) were complete unknowns when the show started, their resulting boom in profile has likely meant that they would be entitled to far more money for additional seasons, which may have made the series too expensive to produce.

Whatever, the situation, apparently the two-part season finale can effectively pull double-duty as a series closer as well. Here's hoping they knew about the end early enough to effectively close down the major storylines.

The production company are considering early ideas for a potential spin-off series, whilst the BBC are developing new dramatic projects to serve as a potential replacement next year.

A near-death experience forces a con man to come to terms with his shady past.

22nd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards Winners

Officially the American award season started last night with winners announced at the "lackluster" ceremony at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. As you can tell the ceremony was streamed live but unfortunately streaming quality was really bad due to bandwidth problems as stated by organizers in twitter.

I was able to watch for a while and the most enjoyable part was the nominated movie clips but as many others that were watching, stopped when the "error" message came back. Most disappointing was to learn, according to comments from the few that stayed watching, the tributes were not broadcasted and what I was most interested in watching was the tribute to Marion Cotillard. I'm not deleting the previous post as seems there will be a "live recording" of the ceremony... soon, and still will like to see what I missed. If you wish to see the recording and if becomes available, will let you know by twitter.

There are some unexpected surprises but perhaps the biggest is that The Master got no recognition from this group, which could mean that now the movie needs critic's groups to honor film or will not make it to the Oscar race. On the positive side I'm glad that Your Sister's Sister got honored with the Best Ensemble Performance as movie real value was the extraordinary performances given by the cast, especially the female cast. Then Moonrise Kingdom (photo) was surprisingly good and enjoyable so I'm glad that was honored with the top award.

These are the winners.

Best Feature: Moonrise Kingdom, Wes Anderson

Breakthrough Director: Benh Zeitlin for Beasts of the Southern Wild

Breakthrough Actor: Emayatzy Corinealdi in Middle of Nowhere, Ava DuVernay

Best Ensemble Performance: Your Sister's Sister by Lynn Shelton
Emily Blunt, Rosemarie Dewitt, Mark Duplass

Best Documentary: How to Survive a Plague, David France

Best Film Not Playing at a Theater Near You: An Over Simplification Of Her Beauty, Terence Nance

Spotlight on Women Filmmakers "Live the Dream" grant: Stacie Passon for Concussion

Audience Award: Artifact by Bartholomew Cubbins

Tributes:
Marion Cotillard
Matt Damon
David O. Russell
Jeff Skoll

Even if I did not enjoyed at all the movie story I'm able to recognize that Benh Zeitlin did take a lot of risks so can't complain with him being honored with the Breakthrough Director award; however now started to wonder about film possibilities for the Oscar Best Actress category. So that's it for this year winners. Later today, the nominations for the other independent film awards will be announced, so see you soon.
