Tom Hanks

Director/producer Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer have cast an energetic company of some of the world’s most talented and interesting rising international stars to join Tom Hanks in Inferno, the new film in Columbia Pictures’ Robert Langdon series, which has taken in more than $1.2 billion worldwide to date.

The Imagine Entertainment production, which has a screenplay by David Koepp based on the book by Dan Brown, is slated for release on October 14, 2016 and will begin principal photography at the end of April.  The project’s executive producers are Dan Brown, Anna Culp, Bill Connor, and David Householter.

Inferno continues the Harvard symbologist’s adventures on screen: when Robert Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, he teams up with Sienna Brooks, a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories and prevent a madman from releasing a global plague connected to Dante’s “Inferno.”

Felicity Jones, an Oscar® nominee this year for her performance in The Theory of Everything, will star opposite Hanks as Dr. Sienna Brooks.  Irrfan Khan, one of India’s biggest stars, best known for his roles in Slumdog Millionaire, Life of Pi, and The Lunchbox, takes the role of Harry Sims, also known as The Provost.  French actor Omar Sy, best known for his work in the French mega-hit The Intouchables, as well as X-Men: Days of Future Past, the upcoming Jurassic World, and John Wells’ upcoming untitled project, will play Christoph Bruder.  Sidse Babett Knudsen, star of the Danish television series “Borgen,” will portray Dr. Elizabeth Sinskey, the head of the World Health Organization.  The filmmakers are also in talks with several other internationally recognized actors for major roles.

Commenting on the announcement, Howard said, “For this film, I wanted Tom Hanks to be surrounded by an international cast of actors whose energy will underscore Robert Langdon’s life-or-death peril, the high-stakes action he takes, and the global threat that he’s trying to prevent.  Felicity, Irrfan, Omar, and Sidse have all broken through with recognition here in America as well as their home countries – they are phenomenal talents and we can’t wait to get started.”

“We’re thrilled to be making a third Robert Langdon film with Ron, Tom and Brian,” said Doug Belgrad, president, Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group.  “Inferno will deliver all of the excitement, intrigue and international adventure that audiences expect from a film based on Dan Brown’s huge selling Langdon book series. We can’t wait to see this character back on the big screen.”

Michael De Luca and Andrea Giannetti will oversee the project for Columbia Pictures.

Cinema Nova

Melbourne audiences have once again proven that they are the most discerning film audience in Australia, with Cinema Nova besting the rest of the country at the Box Office for many of the films nominated for the 85th Academy Awards, announced today.

Two Oscar nominated films, Moonrise Kingdom (nominated for Best Original Screenplay) and Beasts of the Southern Wild (nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay), found that over 10% of Australians that saw them theatrically enjoyed the titles at Nova. Similarly, Best Documentary Feature nominee Searching for Sugar Man, now in its 15th week of release, has experienced enormous success with one fifth of the Australian audience having seen it at the Carlton location. Cinema Nova was also the number one location for Ben Lewin’s acclaimed drama The Sessions (nominated for Best Supporting Actress) as well as Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master (nominated for Best Actor, Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress). Cinema Nova was proudly the top-grossing Melbourne cinema for A Royal Affair, nominated for Best Foreign Feature.

According to Cinema Nova General Manager Kristian Connelly, this is indicative of the fantastic taste of Melbourne audiences.

“These nominations are extraordinary. For one cinema to repeatedly top the rest of the country for many of the films picked as the best of the year indicates that Melbourne’s film culture is not only sophisticated but also extremely prognostic. Bookmakers should take note for next year’s Academy Awards,” said Mr Connelly.

Cinema Nova is delighted to have a full slate of Oscars picks screening and scheduled over the coming months, including Lincoln (nominated for 12 Oscars), Life of Pi (nominated for 11 Academy Awards), Les Miserables (nominated for 8 Academy Awards), Silver Linings Playbook (also nominated for 8 Oscars), Django Unchained (nominated for 5 Academy Awards) and Zero Dark Thirty (also nominated for 5 Academy Awards).

“We are also delighted to have been chosen as the only Melbourne venue that will be showcasing the Academy Award Nominated documentary ‘Chasing Ice’ as part of the 2013 Transitions Film Festival, the Best Short Film – Live Action and Best Short Film – Animated showcase and an advance screening of Kon-Tiki, one of the picks for Best Foreign Language Film, three months ahead of its theatrical release,” said Mr Connelly.

Next Wednesday, Cinema Nova will be exclusively screening the English language version of Best Foreign Language Feature nominee Kon-Tiki (which was shot in both the Norwegian and English language) and hosting a Meet the Filmmaker Event with Academy Award-winning Producer, Jeremy Thomas (The Last Emperor). Tickets to this exclusive event are now available at: http://www.cinemanova.com.au/catalogue/meet-the-filmmaker/kontikimtf

The Oscars Short Film nominees will also be screening in programs dedicated to the ‘Live Action’ and ‘Animated’ selections, to be held at the cinema for limited sessions between February 16 and 24. Tickets and times will be launched soon.

Chasing Ice is screening as part of the 2013 Transitions Film Festival at Cinema Nova, which Cinema Nova is proud to be a venue partner for in 2013. Cinema Nova will also host a number of events as part of Transitions Film Festival, including after film discussions and forums with Australia’s leading sustainability experts and personalities. The Transitions Film Festival runs in parallel to the Sustainable Living Festival, Australia’s largest and oldest sustainability festival. The full program will be released in the coming week. Tickets will go on sale in mid-January at www.cinemanova.com.au

Dave Griffiths’s ‘Life Of Pi’ Review: 

‘Life Of Pi’ may well be when of the best looking films that you are ever likely to see. Director Ang Lee (Taking Woodstock, Brokeback Mountain) has created a film that is so visually spectacular it for once justifies the use of 3D technology and the fact that the audience has to pay that little more to go and see it.

Based on the best-selling novel by Yann Martel ‘Life Of Pi’ finds a writer (Rafe Spall – Earthbound, Prometheus) who is searching for an interesting story as he suffers from a bad case of writer’s block. His journey leads him to the door of Pi Patel (Irrfan Khan – The Amazing Spider-Man, Thank You), a man who promises a tale that will not only captivate him but make him believe on God.

At first the writer isn’t convinced but soon Pi tells him a story that occurred when his teenage self (Suraj Sharma – newcomer), his mother (Tabu – Urumi: The Warriors Who Wanted To KillVaco Da Gama), his father (Adil Hussain – English Vinglish, The Reluctant Fundamentalist) and his brother (Vibish Sivakumar – newcomer) boarded a ship that would leave India and ferry them and their zoo animals to the United States. Unfortunately the boat sinks during a storm and soon Pi finds himself having to battle for survival in a lifeboat not only against the elements but also against Richard Parker… a fully grown Bengal Tiger.

Ang Lee has developed some truly amazing imaginary during the film. The meerkat island looks amazing on the big screen while the visuals of the whale and the jellyfish look so amazing and brilliant you could be excused for thinking they should be paintings hanging on the walls of some of the world’s finest art galleries.

However, it is worth pointing out that ‘Life Of Pi’ still has its faults. Screenwriter, David Magee (Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day, Finding Neverland) does a wonderful job making sure that the film’s story remains interesting and keeps moving along at a steady pace even when it is just Pi and Richard Parker in the boat and lost at sea but it does feel that perhaps the film remains in India too long at the start and that there are too many scenes between the adult Pi and the writer, at times they seem to slow down the action of the film.

Like ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ did for Dev Patel ‘Life Of Pi’ is going to make actor Suraj Sharma an absolute star and he truly deserves it. He does a wonderful job whether he is called upon to do action or the more intense drama scenes. Film lovers should also be praying that ‘Life Of Pi’ makes sure that Rafe Spall is noticed by more film producers… which is great news considering he is one of the most underrated actors going around.

If you love fine films that you certainly need to take a look at ‘Life Of Pi’ it is one of the best looking films you are ever likely to see on the big screen.
