"Anti Matter" in select theaters and VOD September 8.

Smashing The Glass Ceiling

There are countless obstacles that thwart, limit and restrict women in the film industry. There is a distinct lack of female directors and screenwriters in film; but not due to lack of talent (see the recent successes of Sofia Coppola, Ava DuVernay and Patty Jenkins) and leading roles for actresses beyond a certain age are also often said to be rare, as scripts that incorporate this demographic are not being written or optioned as frequently.

The campaign to change these injustices is ongoing, and there have been visible successes in recent times, with the likes of Jennifer Lawrence driving a hard bargain to rectify the pay gap, but the battle is also taking place on the screen itself. In Their Finest, a WWII-set comedy drama directed by Lone Scherfig, we see a female scriptwriter overcome the tiresome misogynistic view that her only use to the film is to write the “slop”, AKA “the female dialogue”, and Gemma Arterton’s Catrin blazes the trail as a result.

Their Finest releases on digital platforms on August 14th and on DVD & Blu-ray on August 21st, and to celebrate we’re taking a look at celluloid’s finest trailblazing women who stick it to the man (quite literally), and have well and truly smashed through the various glass ceilings on screen.

Holly Golightly - Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
The already iconic Audrey Hepburn takes on the greatest role of her career in the adaptation of Truman Capote’s novel Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The film follows a lonely, struggling writer who becomes enchanted with his neighbour: an independent young woman who strives to be a high-climbing socialite with a penchant for high-fashion and wild parties. He soon discovers the woman’s innate vulnerability, and her true identity as an estranged wife from Texas, who has run away in pursuit of a better life. Hepburn's portrayal of Holly Golightly as the naïve, eccentric socialite is as powerful now as it was upon its 1961 release, showing true courage and will that inspired generations of women.

Ripley - Alien (1979)
Fast forward a few years and Ridley Scott presents a completely new vision of a female lead: hard-as-nails Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), who needs no man to assist her in kicking alien ass, and unlike the multitude of female leads to precede her, Ridley is not sexualised in the slightest. In this terrifying first instalment of the franchise, Ripley quickly realises that she must gather all the courage she can muster, and destroy the beast that has swiftly devoured her ship’s crew in the dark depths of outer space. By casting a female in the lead role, Scott’s created a heroine foil to the archetypal male action hero of the time, marking a breakthrough for female roles in cinema that was soon replicated for years to come in films such as Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Kill Bill and The Hunger Games.

Marge Gunderson – Fargo (1996)
In this Coen Brothers classic about an organised kidnapping that goes horribly wrong, Francis McDormand plays the pregnant Police Chief Marge Gunderson who is investigating the case that is linked with a series of homicides across the frozen tundra. McDormand brilliantly captures the tricky juxtaposition of being incredibly sweet and loveable, whilst also operating in a particularly no-nonsense manner, as she tries to make sense of the twisted world in front of her. The fact that Marge is heavily pregnant barely figures into the film, even as she’s pointing her gun fearlessly at a man doing unspeakable things to a wood chipper, again proving that she is a truly multi-faceted character that does not conform to any of the female screen stereotypes of the time.

Erin Brockovich - Erin Brockovich (2000)
Julia Roberts’s Oscar-winning performance as Erin Brockovich is as fierce as they come. The single mother of three who loses a personal injury lawsuit starts work as an assistant at a law firm. Whilst struggling to find time to dedicate to work and to her children, she becomes enthused by a case against Pacific Gas and Electric, and begins to lead the battle against the corporation, earning respect from the lawyers that once looked down on her and the community that she represents. Eventually she unearths a systematic cover-up of the industrial poisoning of a city's water supply, which threatens the health of thousands of residents, doing what her male counterparts couldn’t, all the while raising a family, and proving the haters wrong.

Juno – Juno (2007)
There are many things about this smart and witty indie comedy written by the brilliant Diablo Cody that can be food for thought, but Ellen Page’s brilliant lead performance of an intelligent teenage girl determined to have her ‘unexpected’ child is nothing short of mesmerising. Throughout the film Juno is pushed and pulled this way and that by people trying to convince her of what to do with her own body, but she remains resolute and does exactly what she sets out to do. All the while, Juno is determined not to lose sight of the fact that she is a regular high school teenager who just wants to have fun. Valiantly battling against the emotional and social fallouts of her decision to keep the baby, this plucky young woman takes a situation most would be terrified of and makes it into her own journey, and although she makes mistakes along the way, it was always hers.

Catrin Cole - Their Finest (2017)
Lone Sherfig’s London-set World War II drama-comedy presents a 1940s female scriptwriter’s struggles to be taken seriously in the workplace. Gemma Arterton plays Catrin who is hired to help bring a “woman’s touch” to the propaganda films by writing all the “slop”, but ends up becoming the driving force behind the production of a feature length film based on the Dunkirk rescue, commissioned to inspire America to join the war. During the film’s production, Catrin manages to disprove all the men who doubted her talent and worth, including her husband and colleagues; something that will definitely ring true for modern day audiences.

Interview with Florence Hartigan - Star of Phoenix Forgotten

Florence Hartigan is one of the fresh faces amongst the Ridley Scott-produced Phoenix Forgotten, now available on Blu-ray and DVD. And we caught up with her for a chat.

Can you tell us about the process involved in getting the role…
I first got involved with this project a couple years back actually - I had done a few commercials and music videos with Justin Barber (the director of our movie), so when he and T.S. Nowlin, our writer, were looking to shoot a test for the film they asked if I’d be interested in being a part of that shoot. We went to Phoenix and shot a few scenes. I didn’t know if that was going to translate to me being able to be part of the feature version, especially when Scott Free became part of the equation, so I was super happy to get to audition, and even happier to be given the role. To be able to see this project through from beginning to end has been something very special for me.

What were they looking for in you?
I think one of the huge things for the casting was to get people who were not only good actors, but who could improvise well. We were so lucky to have T.S. (Nowlin of Maze Runner) as our writer - but it was part of the documentary-style of film we were making to not only shoot the script as written, but also shoot an improvised version of pretty much every scenario. So I think my improv background was super helpful - I have a comedy improv background (I’ve studied at UCB and The Groundlings here in LA), which I didn’t ever imagine would be so integral to my performance in a sci-fi thriller but there you go!

Was it daunting knowing you’d be the lead?
It’s definitely always a bit of a scary thrill taking on a big role, whether or not it’s the lead. It’s kind of like climbing a mountain Since this is a documentary-style project - we were really influenced by Werner Herzog, and filmmakers like him - there are actually real people in the movie, who we are just asking questions about their actual real life experiences. So I wanted to make sure Sophie fit in with those real people and never felt “acted”. I wanted to give her lots of layers and depth. So, like climbing a mountain it was one step at a time. It was an incredibly rewarding role to dig into.

What makes the character tick?
Sophie is someone who grew up in this terrible shadow of the tragic disappearance of her brother. When we meet her in the movie, Sophie’s mom is finally selling her childhood home, closing the chapter on a lot of those memories. Sophie is a filmmaker, so making a film is how she knows how to express herself. So what’s driving her is the need to come back to all that stuff with new eyes and find out more, anything else she can, and through her film, cast light in those dark places.

Did you get along well with your co-stars? Get much time to get to know each other before the shoot began?
We actually all spent a lot of time together - Clint Jordan who plays my dad, and Cyd Strittmatter who plays my mom, and I made sure to put in some solid time together before we shot. There was so much improv in the process that we wanted to make sure we had key things we all knew to be true - fixed points to base the freestyling around. Also pretty much everything was on location so even though I don’t have scenes with any of the teens (the film takes place in two time periods, 20 years apart, and the teens are in the other time period) we all saw a lot of each other. Everyone was good people, and very talented, which is what you want when you’re working together. We still hang out from time to time which is nice.

Some of those locations you shot at looked pretty cool too. Where did you largely shoot?
We mostly shot in and around LA, but we shot some desert stuff in Anza Borrego (near San Diego) which is absolutely beautiful, and we did a week or so actually in Phoenix too. My favorite day shooting was the day I got to go fim in a Cessna (which is a 4 seater aircraft), and then chat to Jay Pirouznia who is an ex undercover cop turned PI who in real life handles cases like the fictional one in the movie. He has the best stories in Arizona. He’s the real deal!

Has the film opened doors for you?

I’m so grateful to have had my first lead in a feature be this film. It was incredible to be part of such a collaborative experience, and to get to play such a thoughtful, intelligent and relentless woman - it’s up-levelled me as an actor in every way. On the heels of this, my next project is ‘Malevolent’ - an animated horror film starring Morena Baccarin of Deadpool, where I play an emotionally damaged valley girl dealing with addiction and a very bad family dynamic….!

Competition: Win The Graduate 50th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray

The Graduate 50th Anniversary Edition is out on DVD & Blu-ray on August 14th and to celebrate we have a great competition for you and 2 copies of the Blu-ray to give away.

A complete sensation on its original release in 1967, THE GRADUATE was a one-of-a-kind cinematic portrait of America which captured the mood of disaffected youth seething beneath the laid-back exterior of 1960s California. It earned Mike Nichols a Best Director Oscar, introduced the music of Simon & Garfunkel to a wider audience and featured one of the most famous seductions in movie history and a truly iconic final scene. THE GRADUATE also introduced the world to a young actor named Dustin Hoffman, perfectly cast as the jaw-droppingly naïve Benjamin.

Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) has just finished college and is already lost in a sea of confusion as he wonders what to do with his life. He returns to his parents’ luxurious Beverly Hills home, where he idles away the summer floating in the pool and brooding in silence. He is rescued from the boredom when he is seduced into a clandestine affair with a middle-aged married friend of his parents, Mrs Robinson (Anne Bancroft). That liaison is soon complicated by Benjamin’s infatuation with her college-age daughter Elaine (Katharine Ross).

Visually imaginative and impeccably acted, with a witty, endlessly quotable script by Calder Willingham and Buck Henry (based on the novel by Charles Webb), with a supporting cast that includes William Daniels, Murray Hamilton, Walter Brooke and Elizabeth Wilson, THE GRADUATE had the kind of cultural impact that comes along only once in a generation.

Wu Jing’s Best Roles

Already a major hit in China, action blockbuster Wolf Warrior 2 topped the worldwide box office in its opening weekend and has broken several records. It also became the fastest Chinese film to break the one billion yuan (£113m) benchmark, reaching this in 85 hours.

Written, directed by and starring action prodigy Wu Jing, 2015’s Wolf Warrior was a surprise hit and boasted slick, epic and cinematic action. Now, the sequel brings a fresh flavour with world class stunts and choreography from 87Eleven Action Design, the veteran Hollywood stunt team behind John Wick, Atomic Blonde and Captain America: Civil War. This huge success has cemented Wu Jing’s reputation as a force, and filmmaker, to be reckoned with.

To coincide with the UK release of Wolf Warrior 2, we look back at some of Wu Jing's best action roles which helped define his star power...

Tai Chi Boxer (1996)
This modern genre classic is helmed by Hong Kong action legend, Yuen Woo-ping (Once Upon a Time in China, The Matrix), who first spotted our young star. The story follows a martial artist (Wu Jing) inspired by his heroic father to combat the violence of an opium-smuggling ring and win the girl of his dreams, if only it were that easy! Calling on his years of training and time spent as a member of the Beijing Wushu Team, Wu Jing dominates the screen and shares a now-famous showdown with late, great British martial arts actor Darren Shahlavi (Ip Man 2), which reportedly took 16 days to film.

SPL (2005)
A critically acclaimed, action-packed thriller from director Wilson Yip (Ip Man trilogy). Boasting an all-star cast, a straight-arrow detective (Donnie Yen) reluctantly teams with a group of rogue cops to bring down a notorious Triad boss (Sammo Hung). Wu Jing plays Sammo's ruthless assassin and shares a tense, brutal fight in an alley with Donnie, which many consider a real highlight from both stars' careers.

Fatal Contact (2006)
Giving the fight tournament formula an Eastern twist, naive and penniless Olympic champion (Wu Jing) agrees to try his hand on the illegal fight circuit to support his girlfriend. Thinking he can earn a fast buck and leave, he is drawn deeper underground until he can summon the courage to fight back. With tough action choreographed by Nicky Li from the Jackie Chan Stunt Team, Wu Jing trained hard to prepare for his role, received injuries and even said, at the time, it was his toughest work to date.

Invisible Target (2007)
From popular director Benny Chan (New Police Story), Invisible Target is an exhilarating, fast-paced action thriller showcasing a younger generation of action stars. A group of cops from different backgrounds (Nicolas Tse, Jaycee Chan, Shawn Yue) unite to bring down a gang of mercenaries led by a ruthless boss (Wu Jing). The cast, well known for their physical skills, were requested to perform all of their own action and stunts throughout filming, adding to the authenticity.

Fatal Move (2008)
In a powerful criminal empire, a Triad boss (Sammo Hung), his troubled brother (Simon Yam) and lethal hit man (Wu Jing) work to systematically unravel their enemies, both inside and outside the organisation. Cue plenty of hard-hitting violence and gutsy action. The film presented a wealth of veteran genre stars across its cast, arguably one of the best ensembles from a Hong Kong movie. According to Wu Jing, during fight rehearsals, Sammo would throw him friendly surprise moves to see how he would react. Despite these antics, they enjoy working together and have great mutual respect.

Legendary Assassin (2008)
As Wu Jing's first foray into filmmaking, he co-directed this movie with the Jackie Chan Stunt Team's Nicky Li. Combining martial arts, action and romance, as assassin (Wu Jing) inadvertently befriends a woman after his latest kill, not knowing she is a cop. Meanwhile, criminals descend on the quiet island community looking for revenge against the mysterious assassin. This also marked the screen debut of singer, songwriter and model Celina Jade (TV's Arrow, Skin Trade) who would later reunite with Wu Jing for Wolf Warrior 2.

Wolf Warrior (2015)
A big box office hit in China, the first Wolf Warrior made an impact with Western fans too, a fun throwback to larger-than-life 1980's action cinema. A loose cannon special forces soldier (Wu Jing) is confronted by a group of deadly foreign mercenaries hired to assassinate him by a vicious drug lord. In the martial arts and ballistic carnage, Wu Jing goes toe-to-toe with the mercenary leader, played by Brit action star Scott Adkins (Undisputed 2-4, The Expendables 2). Writing, directing and starring in the film, it proved to be Wu Jing's most ambitious work yet.

SPL II: A Time for Consequences (2015)
A name-only sequel to Wilson Yip's gritty original, SPL II takes an entirely new story with returning cast members Wu Jing and Simon Yam (Election) playing different characters, plus new cast additions Tony Jaa (Ong Bak) and Max Zhang (Ip Man 3). Combining a tight script with great action, and the cops and criminal themes of classic Hong Kong cinema, the film was well received by fans and critics alike.

Wolf Warrior 2 (2017)
Following the success of the original, this proved to be an even bigger hit, breaking global box office records. Reviving the character with a fresh new story, the heroic 'Wolf Warrior' hopes to settle into a quiet life by the sea. But after he crosses paths with a new band of mercenaries, overseen by a volatile and sadistic leader (Frank Grillo, Warrior, Captain America: Civil War), he must reaffirm his duty as a soldier and put an end to the terrorizing of innocent civilians. As the action movie event of the year, Wolf Warrior 2 is a must-see for genre fans and hopefully marks more to come from this exciting franchise.

Interview with Marsha Lorenz, CEO Seniors First, talks “Leftovers Film”

Seniors First, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving senior citizens, got involved in the important new film “Leftovers” (now available on VOD from Uncork’d Entertainment) when they heard the movie needed finishing funds.  Marsha Lorenz, CEO and President of the organization, talks about the film and what she hopes people take away from it.

Can you tell us a little about your organization and how you got involved in the production of the film Leftovers?

Seniors First is one of the oldest and largest non-profit social service organizations in Central Florida dedicated to serving senior citizens.  We are now in our 52nd year.  Simply put, we help seniors live safe, healthy lives in their own homes where they prefer to be.  We offer a wide range of in home services and are also the Meals on Wheels provider for Orange County.

We got involved with the film after learning this important project was struggling due to a lack of funding.  Seniors First was instrumental in securing a grant from the Central Florida Foundation that provided the necessary financing to bring the film to completion.

“Leftovers.” is an important film on the serious subject of senior hunger in America.  Why do you believe people need to watch this movie?

You know, you hear about childhood hunger and homelessness but very few realize that 1 in 6 senior citizens in this country struggle with hunger and may not know where there next meal is coming from.  1 in 6!  Our seniors have nobody to speak for them.  We need to be their voice and this film presents the clear, unvarnished truth about what many seniors in our own neighborhoods and communities are dealing with every day.  We also examine the tremendous food waste in America and explore possible solutions.  Nobody living in the US should be going hungry.

Can you tell us about some of the people who are interviewed in the film?

One of the most interesting things about this film is that it demonstrates how senior hunger affects people from all walks of life.  We talk with a client who was a Hollywood silent film actress.  She lives in Marin County, one of the wealthiest areas in the country and we also visit Owsley County Kentucky, the poorest.  We filmed in Detroit, Los Angeles, Orlando, Austin and San Francisco and no matter where we went, there were senior citizens struggling with hunger.  This is a nationwide problem.  Senior hunger exists in every community in America.

Does the film shock people?  What has been the audience reaction?

Yes, absolutely I think people are shocked.  The comment we hear most is “I had no idea this was such an issue.”  People find the situations in the film heartbreaking and uncomfortable to watch but you know what else is uncomfortable?  The fact that the people who fought our wars, built our communities and taught in our schools are going hungry is uncomfortable.   Working your whole life and then feeling like you’ve been cast aside by society is uncomfortable.   I don’t apologize for that.  This film should make you uncomfortable.  It should make you angry.

What do you hope people take away from the film?

I hope people come away with a better understanding of how big this problem really is and a need to do something about it.  I hope people pass the message and educate others; that they are motivated to volunteer and donate in their own communities so we can keep these programs going.  I believe we can end senior hunger but it’s going to take courage and it’s going to take all of us pulling together.

So what would you ask people to start doing today to make a difference in the lives of our senior citizens?

I would say start at the top.  Email or call your representatives in Washington.  Let them know you support our seniors and will be watching to see how they vote on funding for these programs as the 2018 federal budget moves through congress.  Then take it to a local level and contact your city and county representatives.  Finally, get involved yourself.  Volunteer for Meals on Wheels, donate to local organizations that support senior nutrition programs.  Get your church, civic organizations and schools involved.  That’s what I mean by all of us pulling together.

Can you tell us where we can find out more information on your organization and the movie?

Sure.  You can go to our website which is  to learn more about the work we do, learn more about the film and watch the trailer.

‘’Leftovers’’ is now on VOD.

Tasty new poster for THE ICE CREAM TRUCK - premiering on VOD August 18!

Writer-director Megan Freels Johnston’s suburban nightmare The Ice Cream Truck will hit theaters August 18 and be released day-and-date on VOD via Uncork’d Entertainment. A new trailer and poster have been released to coincide with the release.

The provocative psychological thriller stars Deanna Russo (Being Human, Gossip Girl) as Mary, who moves back to her suburban hometown after her husband gets relocated for work.  As her family ties up loose ends back home, she moves into their new house alone. And although the move makes Mary nostalgic for her youth, there’s something very sinister about that Ice Cream Truck that patrols her suburb.

The Ice Cream Truck also stars Dana Gaier (Despicable Me 3), John Redlinger (Thirst, Banshee), Emil Johnsen (Isolerad), Hilary Barraford (Go For Sisters), Jeff Daniel Phillips (31),  and Lisa Ann Walter (War of the Worlds).

Storytelling is very much in Freels Johnston’s DNA.  The granddaughter of legendary crime writer Elmore Leonard, The Ice Cream Truck screenplay was a semi-finalist in the Circus Road Screenplay competition.

As a producer developing material for over a decade, Freels Johnston worked on adaptations of her grandfather's work and produced Sparks, the directorial debut of Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  After completing a project for the USA Network, she decided to follow her passion and write and direct her own material. Her first film, 2014’s micro budget thriller Rebound, developed a cult following on VOD, was called, “Almost David Lynchian in its strangeness” by Film Threat and Rue Morgue said, the film "(was) worth watching to the end for the unnervingly realistic twist ending."

The Ice Cream Truck will be released in theaters and on VOD August 18.

Official Synopsis :
Mary's husband gets relocated for work which allows her to move back to her suburban hometown. As her family ties up loose ends back home, Mary moves into their new house all alone and....waits. Yet in this idealistic world, something seems very odd. The Ice Cream Man, a symbol of youth and good times, starts killing some of her neighbors. Mary soon learns that the suburbs are scarier in more ways that she ever remembered.
