April 1, 2016   Sicario 0 Comment

Molly Smith, co-founder of Black Label Media, and her twin partners Trent and Thad Luckinbil recently talked with The Hollywood Reporter about Sicario possible sequel, check it out:!

What is the status of Sicario 2? Happening or not happening?

SMITH: We’re in full development with the studio. I just got a draft [of a script from writer Taylor Sheridan], and we’re really excited.

THAD: We’ve circulated it to the reps, and everybody [from the cast of the original is] on board.

TRENT: Taylor’s a really great world-builder. He’s got that kind of modern Western voice, which is in vogue right now. And he did it again [with the sequel]. It’s a great big world. We can’t reveal the plot, but you’ll see [Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin] all come back. You have such a great character with Benicio, who was as dark as he was and still so loved. That character resonates so well with audiences. People want to know what happened to him, so it’s a perfect foray for us to explore. Obviously we would love it if Denis could [direct]. He’s a busy man, but he’s certainly part of the process with us right now.


March 20, 2016   The Little Prince 0 Comment

SVOD giant Netflix has picked up animated pic The Little Prince for domestic after Paramount Pictures unexpectedly dropped the film from its schedule only days before its planned theatrical release.

The move at least assures U.S. auds will get to see the animated adaptation of Antoine Saint-Exupery’s classic, even if on a smaller screen than the producers may have originally intended and indeed told international buyers when pre-selling the film. The promise of a wide domestic release through a studio had been a key part of the producers’ pitch to investors and buyers when the ambitious film was being put together. Wild Bunch handled international sales, scoring very impressive numbers, but the Paramount deal was done directly through the producers.

Paramount’s decision to drop the film came out of blue and left both the director Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda) and producers Dimitri Rassam and Aton Soumache surprised. Multiple inquiries to the filmmaking team were met with stony silence, the consequence perhaps of a legal binding not to disclose the film’s future destination.

The Little Prince, which premiered last year out of competition to respectable reviews, has performed well in its native France and other international territories, earning $100 million to date. The film boasts a stellar voice cast, including Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, Marion Cotillard, James Franco and Benicio del Toro. Paramount’s French arm released the film in France.

It remains to be seen what impact the Netflix move will have on Rassam and Soumache’s attempts to put an arguably even more ambitious animated project in Playmobil. That project, based on the popular children’s toy range, also brings with it the promise of wide domestic distribution, albeit indirectly through co-financier Cross Creek’s, which has a relationship with Universal.

Benicio attended the 88th Academy Awards last night to present The Revenant along with Jennifer Garner. He was wearing Prada. You can check out HQ pictures to the gallery! Thanks to Mouza for some of the pics!

Little tidbit from People:

‘’A staffer touches up Garner’s under-eye makeup before she and del Toro hunker down together under the monitor to go over their lines. When Chris Rock makes a good-natured joke at Carol’s expense (Cate Blanchett was on stage at the time), del Toro laughs out loud.

Cate Blanchett exits the stage and puts her arms around Garner and del Toro, still watching the monitor. Del Toro gives Blanchett a hug and Garner says she’s in awe at how Blanchett nailed the “walking and talking” thing on stage. As Garner and del Toro get ready to walk to the stage, del Toro steps on Garner’s dress. She sweetly frees her train and says playfully to him: “Now look here, you have one job to do!”

Making her way back off-stage with del Toro, Garner is all smiles and gives a thumbs up.’’

Benicio attended the 88th Academy Awards – Rehearsals yesterday, getting ready to present an Award tonight! I have added 2 High Quality Pictures of him and Jennifer Garner taking a selfie backstage!
As a reminder, Sicario is nominated for 2 Awards tonight: Best Cinematography, Original Score and Sound Editing!


Actor Benicio del Toro has a refreshingly clear-eyed view of being involved with the juggernaut that is Star Wars: Episode VIII: “It’s scary.”

The Sicario star is laughing a bit when he adds, “It’s scary because there’s a lot of talk that I’m going to be in that movie — before I’ve even shot one scene!

“But I’m excited, too.”

Del Toro is on the phone from Los Angeles to promote a new drama called A Perfect Day, a film from Fernando Leon de Aranoa set in the midst of the Balkan crisis of the 1990s. It was nominated for seven Goya Awards (the Spanish Oscar) this year.

Del Toro and Tim Robbins play aid workers in Bosnia dealing with local issues — a dead body in a well, a bullied child, land mines in village roads. The military and various bureaucrats do their thing while our intrepid heroes fight the small fights that affect everyday life. Also starring Olga Kurylenko, Melanie Thierry and Fedja Stukan, the movie has an air of the absurd, and shows war on a tiny, personal scale that somehow captures the day-to-day horror lived by the citizens.

Would he agree it’s a grown-up movie?

“Well, it ain’t Star Wars.”

Del Toro says he’d been hoping to work with Perfect Day writer/director Leon de Aranoa for some time.

“I liked his movies, and we always wanted to work together, do something if something came along he felt I could be part of, and this one came along.

“It was refreshing, a different kind of story than I usually get.”

Indeed — del Toro often plays dark or villainous roles, and it’s rumoured he’ll play a villain in Star Wars: Episode VIII.

At 21, he was the youngest-ever Bond villain in Licence to Kill. Del Toro made his name in films such as The Usual Suspects, Traffic (for which he won an Oscar, a BAFTA and a Golden Globe), The Pledge, Sin City, 21 Grams, Che, The Wolfman and Guardians of the Galaxy.

Many thought del Toro would get another Oscar nomination this year for Sicario.

The father of one has some interesting movies coming up besides Star Wars. He voices a character in The Little Prince, stars in Terrence Malick’s Weightless (with Michael Fassbender, Ryan Gosling and Christian Bale) and stars with James Franco in Harmony Korine’s crime thriller, The Trap.

And there’s talk of a Sicario sequel. Although del Toro says he hasn’t heard anything yet, he’d welcome the chance to work with director Denis Villeneuve again.

“Working with Denis was a real pleasure,” says the actor. “He’s the real deal as a filmmaker. I really enjoyed the whole process and outcome of Sicario.”

Del Toro will now go from the small independent movie, A Perfect Day, to the behemoth that is Star Wars. “I’m in a lucky position that I’ve been able to do some independent movies and some not-so-independent movies,” he says. “But I don’t work differently on independent movies and studio films — my approach to Star Wars or any movie I do is pretty much the same. You work with the character, you try to bring something and you learn your lines.”

He’s looking forward to Star Wars. “I really enjoyed Episode VII. And I’ve enjoyed Star Wars, especially the first one — I think it’s called Episode IV now. And Return of the Jedi, and The Empire Strikes Back — I’m not a Star Wars buff like some out there, but as a kid I really liked those films, like, way before I ever thought I was going to be in movies. There’s something of a nostalgia thing that gets you excited about being part of the Star Wars world.”
