Busan: Why the 2013 Fest Snubbed Hollywood
Korean movies have performed especially well against the Hollywood juggernaut. So far this year, Korean releases have dominated the local box office at a 58.9 percent clip, while U.S. films account for 36.8 percent. In one weekend in late September, Korean films accounted for more than 70 percent of the take, and eight out of the top 10 highest-grossing films this year are Korean — with all eight of them bringing in more than 5.5 million admissions. The domestic drama Miracle in Cell No. 7 — which screened in 2012 in Busan — became one of the highest-grossing local releases of all time with 12.8 million admissions. The only two Hollywood films on the list are Iron Man 3 (third place with 9 million admissions) and World War Z (10th with 5.2 million admissions). Similar things are happening in other markets in the region. Suh Young-joo, CEO of influential Korean sales banner Finecut, tells THR that she has heard of some buyers checking out Busan ahead of other, far more established industry events like MIPCOM in Cannes. “That seems to speak for Busan’s growing influence in Asia,” says Suh. “We are showcasing eight films at the Busan market this year, and all of them are making their market debuts. The Busan International Film Festival is important because it’s a chance for us to introduce new works and to provide a preview for buyers.” Busan executive programmer Kim Ji-Seok is proud of the event’s focus on emerging filmmakers, pointing to the effort it took to program 94 films in the lineup that are debut or follow-up features. STORY:Busan Film Fest’s Asian Project Market Announces Selections “There is also a strong representation of Central Asian cinema,” says Kim. “We held a showcase on New Central Asian cinema 12 years ago, and this year there will be works by a lot of lesser-known directors.
Clancy, the bestselling author of The Hunt for Red October and other wildly successful technological thrillers, has died. He was 66. Penguin Group (USA) said Wednesday that Clancy died Tuesday in Baltimore. The publisher did not disclose a cause of death. By Associated Press, LOS ANGELES Jack Ryan is the sort of American hero thats been a screen staple since the silent era. Harrison Ford, Alec Baldwin and Ben Affleck have all played the fictional CIA analyst, and Chris Pine joins the list when Jack Ryan: Shadow One opens on Christmas Day. The character was Tom Clancys version of an American James Bond, said Gregg Kilday, film editor for The Hollywood Reporter. The weeks best news photos Heres a quick way to catch up on the weeks news, through some of our favorite photos. Clancy, who died Tuesday at age 66, wrote these very solid, meat-and-potatoes thrillers, Kilday said. They offered up a lot of material that directors and actors could work with in fashioning straightforward, semi-patriotic espionage and action-adventure movies. Each adaptation was a hit: The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger and The Sum of All Fears. But despite the success, the authors relationship with Hollywood was often contentious. While he enjoyed the exposure, he regretted the lack of creative control. Giving your book to Hollywood is like turning your daughter over to a pimp, he famously said. He took potshots at a number of films, Kilday noted.
Chelsea Players as Hollywood Movie Characters
Emmett Brown Back to the Future image courtesy of Sodahead.com Ian Walton/Getty Images Their hair may be vaguely similar, but the resemblance between Chelsea’s David Luiz and Dr. Emmett Brownor simply Doc as he is better known to Marty McFly in Back to the Futureis uncanny. Both are borderline genius at their chosen craft, with Doc creating a time machine from a DeLorean car, while Luiz has an abundance of footballing talent that has seen him make 29 appearances for Brazil. Yet, for all their talents, the pair have a tendency to cause plenty of drama and have a habit of getting themselves into the odd sticky situation. Whether it be attempting a succession of Cruyff turns on the edge of his own penalty area or conceding reckless fouls, Luiz has landed himself in hot water more times throughout his career than he cares to mention. And as for Doc, well, need we remind you of Back to the Future III? Frank Lampard / Rocky Balboa Rocky image courtesy of Wikipedia It’s hard to imagine that Frank Lampard was once a player considered by many as not being talented enough to make the grade at the highest level. At his boyhood club West Ham United , this was particularly the case, with fans questioning his ability. In fact, at one famous Q&A session with supporters, Harry Redknapp was forced to support his young nephew’s talents when one fan targeted him for criticism, suggesting Lampard was only featuring for the Hammers for reasons of nepotism. You can watch the YouTube clip here . Well, 205 goals for Chelsea and 100 England caps tell their own story.
