More Details About Annihilation

By | Nat-news, News | No Comments

 

The release of the second Annihilation trailer has been accompanied by some articles that give us more details on the story, the characters and the filming of the movie. Here are some of them:

Coming Soon has an interesting story about a visit to the set during the filming of the movie in the UK (with “The Last Jedi” shooting side by side at the Pinewood studios).

Collider has a couple of articles about the film: the first focuses on the movie itself, and the second is an interesting and revealing interview with Alex Garland, in which he makes clear his opinion that Netflix is ​​going to distribute the film internationally:

Recently it was announced Annihilation would be released on Netflix internationally. What was your reaction to that?

GARLAND: Disappointment really. We made the film for cinema. I’ve got no problem with the small screen at all. The best genre piece I’ve seen in a long time was The Handmaid’s Tale, so I think there’s incredible potential within that context, but if you’re doing that – you make it for that [medium] and you think of it in those terms. Look… it is what it is. The film is getting a theatrical release in the States, which I’m really pleased about. One of the big pluses of Netflix is that it goes out to a lot of people and you don’t have that strange opening weekend thing where you’re wondering if anyone is going to turn up and then if they don’t, it vanishes from cinema screens in two weeks. So it’s got pluses and minuses, but from my point of view and the collective of the people who made it – [it was made] to be seen on a big screen.

Annihilation: Clash Between Producers

By | Nat-news, News | 2 Comments

 

well, we have finally an explanation to the delay in the release of Annihilation, and the recent agreement of Paramount with Netflix to distribute the film internationally.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, everything is due to a confrontation between the two producers of the film: Scott Rudin and David Ellison:

The movie, which wrapped shooting July 2016, had a poor test screening this summer that sources say was the root of the conflict. After the screening, Ellison became concerned that the movie was “too intellectual” and “too complicated” and wanted changes made to make it appeal to a wider audience. They included making Portman’s character more sympathetic as well as tweaking the ending.

Rudin, who executive produced Machina, sided with Garland, defending the movie and refused to take notes. Rudin was able to hold his line, according to a source, because he has final cut.

Things got testier from there, with Paramount caught in the middle. The studio ultimately decided that finding another distributor, preferably a streamer, could salvage the situation.

With Ellison not wanting to lose money after the poor performances of Geostorm, the billionaire producer is seeking to avoid a worldwide release and hopes that a digital release may be a better fit. The deal calls for Netflix to cover a good chunk of the production budget, which is in the $55 million range.

In short, if all this helps us to see the vision that Garland wanted, it will be welcome…

International Deal For Annihilation

By | Nat-news, News | No Comments

 
It seems that Paramount is negotiating with Netflix a deal to premiere internationally the film by Alex Garland on this digital platform 17 days after its premiere in USA, Canada and China, according to Deadline. This seems to indicate that there will not be releases in theatres beyond these countries. If this is confirmed, it would be a great pity for those of us who live outside the United States and we like to see the movie at the cinema. We will see as if there is something new about it in the coming days…

I don´t usually like to post family photos of Natalie in which the children are clearly portrayed, but I think this candids are worth it, perhaps because it´s one of the few times we have seen the whole family together. Natalie, Benjamin, Aleph and Amalia were spotted going to Arclight cinemas in Pasadena this weekend. Ok Magazine, via Legion Media, has the photos. It must be said that the faces of the children are clearly visible in all the photos:

Natalie on Harassment Problem in Hollywood

By | Nat-news, News | 4 Comments

 
We still don´t have a full video of Natalie’s conversation at the Vulture Festival, but the site has published a couple of articles about it, including several statements by Natalie about the problem of harassment in Hollywood. Here are some quotes:

“When I heard everything coming out, I was like, wow, I’m so lucky that I haven’t had this. And then, on reflection, I was like, okay, definitely never been assaulted, definitely not, but I’ve had discrimination or harassment on almost everything I’ve ever worked on in some way,” she said during Sunday’s candid talk at Vulture Festival L.A. The more she reexamined her experiences, other incidents come into sharp relief. “I went from thinking I don’t have a story to thinking, Oh wait, I have 100 stories. And I think a lot of people are having these reckonings with themselves, of things that we just took for granted as like, this is part of the process.”

For example, she says a producer once invited her to fly with him and his company on a private plane to a place she was also going. “I showed up and it was just the two of us, and one bed was made on the plane. Nothing happened, I was not assaulted. I said: ‘This doesn’t make me feel comfortable,’ and that was respected. But that was super not okay, you know? That was really unacceptable and manipulative and could have been — I was scared, you know? But just the fact of any woman, if you’re walking down the street alone at night, you feel scared, and I’m not sure guys know what that [feels like].”
