Oscar Contenders Dominate Robust Specialty Box Office

Oscar Contenders Dominate Robust Specialty Box Office
Led by an expansion of “The Post” (20th Century Fox), Oscar contenders grossed a combined $40 million-plus this weekend. This continues to be a high-end year for awards hopefuls, as six have already topped $10 million and four have passed the $20-million mark.

This compares well to recent years when titles like “Whiplash,” “Foxcatcher,” “The Danish Girl” and “Room” never reached those highs despite their strong awards presence. This year Amazon’s Sundance buy “The Big Sick” followed “Manchester by the Sea” as a robust awards contender, which could yield elevated acquisitions bidding at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival.

With such a crowded field of established titles, new openings faced intense competition. Lebanese Oscar contender “The Insult” (Cohen) led the field of openers, which all grossed under $10,000 per theater in initial dates.

‘In the Fade’ Director Fatih Akin Shares the Love in Palm Springs After His Globe Win

‘In the Fade’ Director Fatih Akin Shares the Love in Palm Springs After His Globe Win
Fatih Akin, the 44-year-old German director of “In the Fade” (December 29, Magnolia Pictures) seemed both bemused and philosophical the night after his film’s surprise Best Foreign Language win at Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards. “The story is like a German team won a big sports victory in the local newspapers,” he noted from the Palm Springs International Film Festival, 5,000 miles away from Berlin.

In the Fade” is the fictionalized story of a German woman (Cannes Best Actress winner Diane Kruger) who demands justice after her immigrant husband and their son are victims of a terror attack. They turn out to have been targets of white nationalists who are arrested and put on trial. Based on real-life events but fictionalized (the actual case that served as a starting point is still not resolved in local courts), it is a compelling thriller as well as a drama about justice and racism.

International Newswire: Nordic Noir Moves On

International Newswire: Nordic Noir Moves On
In today’s International Newswire, Nordic Noir shows it is still alive and kicking, Golden Globe winner and Oscar front-runner “In the Fade” vies for Germany’s Lola Awards, Alpe d’Huez fest puts the spotlight on France’s top comedies, and Argentina opens the door to quadplay.

Reports of the demise of Nordic Noir are exaggerated, as can be seen by the five nominations, announced Wednesday, for 2018’s Nordisk Film & TV Fund Prize for outstanding writing of a Nordic drama series. Its winner will be announced at the Goteborg Festival’s TV Drama Vision forum on Jan. 31.

A high-profile candidate is “Borgen” show-runner Adam Price, up for the Studiocanal-sold and Dr Drama-produced “Ride Upon the Storm.” It stars Lars Mikkelsen (“Sherlock,” “House of Cards”), who turns in a tearaway performance as the patriarch of a family of priests whose faith in humanity is tested by the maelstrom of the modern world.

Dear Academy: Don’t Overlook These Great Performances

Dear Academy: Don’t Overlook These Great Performances
Members of the motion picture Academy now have ballots in hand. Presumably many of them are reading these very words. So it feels like something of a duty to whisper a few suggestions, particularly as the awards season can so quickly be reduced to the same handful of names and titles.

First and foremost, there are a few contenders that seemed strong coming into the season, but have somehow been all but forgotten. Take Jake Gyllenhaal in “Stronger.” Here is one of the year’s most critically acclaimed films (93% on Rotten Tomatoes), dealing in a well-worn, Oscar-friendly genre (a biopic centered on a disabled person who beats the odds), featuring another great turn from an actor who has delivered a number of awards-caliber performances lately that have gone unrecognized by the Academy (“Prisoners,” “Nightcrawler,” “End of Watch”). What’s it going to take to put his name on the ballot?

Germany Shines With Golden Globe Win for ‘In the Fade’

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” surprises at the Golden Globe Awards

Last night, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association again defied expectations with their Golden Globe selections. As always, the HFPA do their own thing, the Academy be damned. Now, that’s a bit different this year, as voters for the Academy Awards were potentially watching, with voting currently going on. In that sense, this show actually might have impacted potential nominees, though future winners are a whole other thing. It made for an unpredictable ceremony, which more than lived up to that expectation. You’ll be able to see the full list of Golden Globe winners below, but first…a tiny bit of analysis and discussion. The Globes spread the love, though leading the charge was Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri with four wins (including Best Picture – Drama, Best Screenplay, and two acting prizes) one of only three films to take home multiple statues.

It won best drama film, best drama actress for Frances McDormand, best supporting actor for Sam Rockwell and best screenplay.

Who Decides the Golden Globes? Meet Bodybuilder-Turned-Filmmaker Alexander Nevsky

Of the 90 people whose votes determine Sunday night’s Golden Globes awards, only one is a filmmaker. That’s the belief of Hollywood Foreign Press member Alexander Nevsky, the 6’6″, 280-pound Russian (real name: Sasha Kuritsyn) who starred opposite Sherilyn Fenn and the late David Carradine in “Treasure Raiders” (2007) and made his directorial debut in “Black Rose” (2014), which is now streaming on Netflix. (The Los Angeles Times called it “an impressively thorough compendium of ’80s cop picture clichés” with “moldy dialogue.”) He’s also a three-time Mr. Universe and 10-time author: The title of his first book translates as, “How to Become Schwarzenegger in Russia.”

Diane Kruger on Battling Nazis, Giving a Voice to Women, and the Aftermath of Terror

Even though she was born and raised in Germany, Diane Kruger had never shot a feature film in her native language until she did In the Fade. Fatih Akin’s explosive drama sees Kruger playing Katja Sekerci, a woman who loses her son and husband in a terrorist attack perpetrated by Neo-Nazis. Worried that the law won’t make them justice, Katja decides to take matters into her own hands. But this is no simple revenge thriller, rather it’s an exploration of grief that often feels like staring deep into the abyss. Kruger gives the most compelling performance of her career as a woman trying to make sense of a world that’s completely new to her. Watching her transformation from the lively woman we see in flashbacks and home videos, to the torn human being she’s become by the end is truly heartbreaking.

In recent years, Kruger
