Warner Bros. Pictures and Roadshow Films are partnering with exhibitors to invite audiences to celebrate the 10thAnniversary re-release of Christopher Nolan’s critically acclaimed box office sensation INCEPTION on July 16. This special anniversary theatrical event will also give audiences a never-before-seen look at footage from Nolan’s highly anticipated film TENET, which will debut worldwide two weeks later, on July 30.

“As cinema lovers return to theatres across the country we are thrilled to be bringing TENET, Christopher Nolan’s latest epic, to the big screen,” Said Joel Pearlman, CEO Roadshow Films. “Fans of Nolan’s work know the scope and scale of his films are made for the theatrical environment and as we countdown to the opening of this latest global film event, we are excited to offer his classic INCEPTION in cinemas on its 10th anniversary, July 16th.”

John David Washington is the new Protagonist in Christopher Nolan’s original sci-fi action spectacle “Tenet.” Armed with only one word—Tenet—and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time. Not time travel. Inversion. The film also stars Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, with Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh.  Nolan wrote and directed the film and also produced with Emma Thomas.

“Inception,” a 2010 science fiction action film written and directed by Nolan, who also produced the film with Emma Thomas, stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a professional thief who steals information by infiltrating the subconscious of his targets. He is offered a chance to have his criminal history erased as payment for the implantation of another person’s idea into a target’s subconscious. The ensemble cast includes Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Dileep Rao, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, and Michael Caine.

Poised to thrill audiences around the nation, the Alliance Française French Film Festival has today unveiled the full line-up for its eagerly anticipated 31st season at www.affrenchfilmfestival.org

Spreading its cinematic stardust across 8 cities and 4 satellite locations, the Festival, which is proudly presented by the Alliance Française in association with the Embassy of France in Australia, Unifrance Films and screening partner, Palace Cinemas, will commence its national tour from 10 March until 19 April and is set to thrill audiences with a stupendous selection of 49 contemporary and classic French films, many enjoying their Australian premiere.

 We’re also delighted to announce that dynamic filmmaker, Justin Kurzel (The Snowtown Murders, Macbeth, True History of the Kelly Gang), who has long taken inspiration from French cinema, will be the 2020 Festival Patron.

 Additionally, acclaimed director/actor, Zabou Breitman, whose lyrical, animated drama, The Swallows of Kabul (Les hirondelles de Kaboul), has won plaudits from critics and audiences alike on the international film festival circuit, will be visiting Melbourne to introduce a screening of this, her latest feature, which she directed with Éléa Gobbé-Mévellec. This special Festival event is slated for the evening of Tuesday 17 March at Palace Cinema Como, and will be followed by a filmmaker Q&A.

 On a more sombre note, this year has already experienced horrific bushfires ravaging our land and robbing so many of their lives and homes.  The Alliance Française, and venue partners thereby invite you to join us in helping those impacted by this tragedy by supporting special previews of How to Be a Good Wife and In the Name of the Land (both screening courtesy of Palace Films) to be held in all capital cities on 9th and 10th of March.  100% of tickets sales for these sessions will be donated to the Australian Red Cross Bushfire Appeal and Rural and Remote Mental Health.

And in celebration of mankind’s great capacity for kindness and compassion – which often comes to the fore in times of crisis – the Festival will launch the 2020 season with The Extraordinary (Hors normes)one of the most gloriously uplifting films to emerge from France in recent years, which will screen courtesy of Madman Entertainment.

 The latest feature from renowned filmmakers Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano (who delighted with The Intouchables and C’est la vie!), The Extraordinary is inspired by a true story and was honoured as the Closing Night Feature at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. For twenty years, Bruno (Vincent Cassel) and Malik (Reda Kateb) have run two separate non-profit organizations where they train young people from underprivileged areas to be caregivers for autistic youth abandoned by the state system. But the authorities, concerned that they’ve never sought certification and that many of their carers aren’t ‘officially’ qualified, decide to mount an investigation.

 The result of two years’ immersion in the lives of the two associations, The Extraordinary is a crowd-pleasing charmer, which will have viewers experiencing a gamut of emotions as they fall in love with a host of extraordinary characters in exceptional circumstances.  It’s a testimony to the great things that can be achieved when people support one another in the face of adversity.

 And concluding the 2020 season, on a deliciously whimsical note, will be The Bare Necessity (Perdrix)the directorial debut of Erwan Le Duc, starring Swann Arlaud, Maud Wyler, Fanny Ardant and Nicolas Maury.  Set within a tiny town nestled in the woody mountains of Vosges, this sweetheart of a movie, which delighted hardened cynics when it premiered in Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes 2019, looks at the romantic mayhem that ensues when an enigmatic young woman forces a stagnant family to re-define their boundaries and begin to truly live.

The Good The Bad The Ugly Film Show Logo

This week on The Good The Bad The Ugly Film Show Adam, Dave, Greg and Nick  take a look at new release films ‘Museum Alive 3D,’ ‘The Edge Of Seventeen,’ ‘Assassin’s Creed,’ ‘Passengers,’ and ‘Lion’.

This episode also contains interviews with Hailee Steinfeld, Woody Harrelson, Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard

If you are a gamer, then there is a good chance that the film that you are most looking forward to this summer is the big screen adaption of the popular Assassin’s Creed franchise of games. Of course though perhaps the biggest surprise for fans of the games was when it was announced that Michael Fassbender would be playing Aguilar in the movie. While Fassbender is no newcomer to the sci-fi universe, he has starred in Prometheus and plays Magneto in the current X-Men franchise; people were worried when they learnt that Fassbender didn’t even know that the Assassin’s Creed game existed before he jumped on board this project.

When talking about the Assassin’s Creed film though Fassbender admits that it was other things that drew him to taking the role, especially the science behind the movie. “This universe of Templars and Assassins and DNA memory, how we carry our ancestor’s lives with us in our DNA, that seemed to me immediately fascinating. The idea that we negotiate life through these labels, things like instinct or why a bird would fly south or migrate at certain times of the year, that this actually comes from knowledge, from a formation, passed down through our DNA from our ancestors. I thought that was a very cool, plausible, scientific theory.”

It also didn’t worry him that the movie was bringing in new characters than the games themselves. “We wanted to bring in something new and fresh,” explains Fassbender. “Then it was really about finding where those characters come from and where they are going. We had the idea that we would have someone that has a very strong family, and for me that goes back hundreds and hundreds of years through this lineage to the Creed. I thought that would be very interesting and that he would become pretty much cerebral in the story and realise that he does belong to something much greater than himself. Up to this point, he has been operating as an individual and in a kind of lone-wolf way. Then he finds himself in this war where the Assassin’s have to make sure that these artefacts are kept out of the Templar’s hands. So we are dealing with DNA memory, we are dealing with Templars who are this Imperial kind of people, we are dealing with Assassins who are this band of anarchists, these rebels that are trying to prevent total corporate control of the world if you like and those are the kinds of things that we can kind of relate to. And they are also trying to make sure that freedom is still something that is protected and cherished.”

In the middle of that war, we find scientist Sofia Rikkin who is portrayed by Marion Cotillard who says her character is all about the science “Sofia Rikkin is a scientist who is seeking a cure for violence in a bid to improve human beings. She is a passionate woman and she thinks she works for a noble cause, which is a noble cause, and that is to find this cure against violence but she has her own way, and of course we are in a kind of sci-fi movie, so she has these amazing tools to support her research, and she is very, very passionate about her work and there is also a humanity in her that is really interesting as well.”

Like Fassbender Cotillard admits that she is also fascinated by the science behind the movie, especially around the device that her character has created – the Animus. “The company that I work for in the film has this very specific machine called the Animus which allows the scientists to see images of the subjects that they put into the Animus so they can explore the lives of their ancestors. The subjects when they first enter the Animus they don’t really know what is going to happen to them and they can’t believe the lives of their ancestors and they don’t realise that they are going to take the place of one of their ancestors and become this person and as they become that person they start to believe those lives.”

The third piece of the puzzle is the film’s resident bad guy Rikkin played by Hollywood legend Jeremy Irons, and he is quick, to sum up his character. “Rikkin is the CEO of a pharmaceutical company and a Templar. With his pharmaceutical company his products go worldwide and what he is trying to get permission to do is to add a component into the pharmaceutical drugs to remove the violence gene in people. It plugs into their subconscious and allows us to see the history within their genes which is played out in actual visual reality.”

Irons also says that Australian director Justin Kurzel is an integral part of Assassin’s Creed working as a film. “Justin is a very nice man and a very calm man,” Irons says smiling. “He is making an incredibly complicated film, and I am playing a very small part in that so really I just try to give him what he wants, and I know that he will knit it into the patchwork that he is making.”

Assassin’s Creed is indeed a very complicated film, but it is also a film that is going to be lapped up by the gaming world. From its suspenseful storyline and epic stunt-work, it is one of the films that shouldn’t be missed this summer.

Assassin’s Creed opens in Australian cinemas on the 1st January 2017.

Allied

New suspense-thriller Allied is one of those films that has risen to notoriety before its release not because of what critics have been saying about the film but because of the rumours and innuendo that have surfaced about its stars – Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard. With all of those stories circulating it seems that everybody forgot that for the third time Pitt was starring in a fairly decent war film.

Pitt’s co-star Marion Cotillard says it only took her reading through the script to realise that this was a film that she certainly wanted to make. “When I read the script I wanted to see the movie,” she says grinning. “I thought that it was such a beautiful story. It was a mix of a very entertaining film and very deep emotions and questions about love; it’s really a beautiful, beautiful love story and it has this spirit of ‘old movie’ about it and knowing that it would be directed by a visionary like Robert Zemeckis made the project even more exciting. It is at the same time very entertaining and it talks about what are you choices in an extreme situation like the war, especially when your work is being a spy and you are pretending that you are somebody that you are not. In the beginning of the movie both of us are spies and they don’t know anything about each other and they pretend to be this loving couple and it is going to turn into this very extreme situation that the war creates, so part of the movie is very entertaining and part of it is very serious with all the questioning about choices and all the questioning about love.”

Cotillard also admits that one of the reasons that she was attracted to making Allied was because she was a huge fan of the film’s director, Robert Zemeckis. “He was really part of my desire to be an actress,” she says thoughtfully. “I’ve watched all of his movies, and I knew what he wanted to tell with this story because when we first met, he said ‘I’m not used to telling love stories like this one, this is really new for me.” It was very exciting to see him be so honest and so committed to doing something that he is not used to delivering and he was so good at it, all the questions that we had, all that we shared during the preparation time that we had. We had little more than two weeks where we all sat together, with Brad Pitt, with Robert, with Steven Knight who had written this amazing script, and to have this period of time where we could get to know each other, get to really understand what we wanted to tell with this movie was really fascinating and I was really fascinated by Robert on set because of all the movies that he had directed already and all the special effects that he has been part of creating. He has really changed cinema with what he has done and the movies he has done. So yeah I was in awe a lot and really fascinated by the way he directed this one.”

When it comes to the man himself, Robert Zemeckis, he says it was the characters that really drew him to want to direct Allied. “What I really liked about the project when I first read the screenplay was that this story had these two unbelievably well-written characters. These two characters were very complex and very passionate, that was what I was drawn to. The way that the screenplay was written so elegantly and these characters just really, really jumped right off the page, and that really attracted me as well. I think the question at the heart of the film is one that is universal, a universal question, which is – does love trump all? Is love the key driving emotion in everyone’s life and what happens when you love somebody and the circumstances get very, very complicated and what choices should we make? Those questions are all very universal and have been there all through time, and they are the ones that I think are very dramatic and very interesting. That is one of the things that I like to do and one of the things that I think cinema does very well and that creates tension and suspense. It is interesting in this movie that the tension and suspense come from the emotions of these two characters, and this incredible passion that they have for each other in these circumstances that are very, very complicated and dire. To have that much tension and suspense come from within characters was a wonderful challenge for me and something that I enjoyed doing.”

Zemeckis also seems genuinely excited when he gets to talk about having to recreate the past for the film. “I did a lot of research,” he explains. “It’s one of the things that movies do really well, they can evoke and re-create past periods of time and the way that you do is you do a lot of research and look at a lot of photographs, a lot of footage – a lot of historical footage – and then you talk to people that really know – people like historians – what was going on. We were lucky on our film because the Imperial War Museum were our consultants, so we had great people surrounding us.”

This leads to being asked what was it like working with two of the biggest movie stars of current day – Brad Pitt and Marion Cottilard. “Working with both Brad and Marion was a real thrill because they were both professional and very focused and very hard working. Brad also a very good attention to detail and I was very impressed that he went down so deep and gave such an emotional performance, one that I had never seen him do before, so that was a thrill. Marion is amazing, I mean she is one of the best and greatest actresses that I have ever worked with. She is one of those actresses that can make anything work and she pays such close attention to her character and does an amazing amount of work on her own preparing, so when she comes onto the set, she is ready to deliver and does.”

Allied is in Australian cinemas now.
