Disney reports record-breaking year thanks to Star Wars and Marvel films

Disney reports record-breaking year thanks to Star Wars and Marvel films | LVI Film | Scoop.it
Disney’s acquisition of Marvel and Lucasfilms continues to pay off for the entertainment conglomerate, with the company announcing a record-breaking $55.6 billion in revenue.

Disney CEO and president, Bob Iger, attributed last year’s fiscal success to the opening of the Shanghai Disney Resort and incredible position at the box office. More than $7.5 billion was raised in global cinemas alone, thanks to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Captain America: Civil War, Zootopia, Finding Dory and other major films.

“We’re very pleased with our performance for the year, delivering the highest revenue, net income and earnings per share in Disney’s history,” Iger said. “We remain confident that Disney will continue to deliver strong growth over the long-term as we further strengthen our brands and franchises, our technological capabilities, and our international presence.”

'If the Camera Moves it’s Got To Be for a Reason': An Interview with Roger Deakins | Hazlitt

'If the Camera Moves it’s Got To Be for a Reason': An Interview with Roger Deakins | Hazlitt | LVI Film | Scoop.it
Nobody shoots movies as well as Roger Deakins. He is without question our greatest cinematographer: an exemplar without comparison. A twelve-time Academy Award nominee, longtime partner of the Coen brothers, and indispensable collaborator of, among others, David Mamet, Sam Mendes, Martin Scorsese, and of late Denis Villeneuve, he is incapable of capturing a lacklustre image. His work is probably stamped in your subconscious whether you realize it or not: think of Bond’s luminous entrance by boat in Macau in Skyfall, of Tim Robbins standing in the downpour in Shawshank Redemption, of Steve Buscemi digging through the snow on the side of the road in Fargo—all Deakins. He makes a strong case for us to consider the director of photography as auteur. His presence alone is reason enough to see a film.

The latest Deakins glory is Sicario, another collaboration with Canadian director Denis Villeneuve that concerns the efforts of a mysterious American task force to take the war on drugs into Mexico. It opens in wide theatrical release this week—to almost universally rapturous praise, even—after enjoying its North American premiere last month at the Toronto International Film Festival. It was there that we had the privilege to sit down with the maestro to talk about his methods and affinities—though I couldn’t resist leading with a more pressing question.

'Arrival' Insists on Conversation, on Communication, on Sharing Experience

'Arrival' Insists on Conversation, on Communication, on Sharing Experience | LVI Film | Scoop.it
“Memory is a strange thing,” says Louise (Amy Adams). “We are so bound by time, by its order.” We are so bound, and so are the screens reflecting us, the movies. Louise appears to be speaking at the start of Arrival, introducing her as a mother addressing her infant daughter, bathed in golden light, slivers of sensory experience turned into tight shots of faces and hands. In these images, Louise contemplates her child in a present moment, but her voiceover looks back on a past that does not lead to the future she anticipates. Memory, she goes on, “doesn’t work like I thought it did.”
