Rodney King review – Spike Lee's Netflix special is a bleakly poetic howl of rage

Rodney King review – Spike Lee's Netflix special is a bleakly poetic howl of rage | LVI Film | Scoop.it
Spike Lee is marking the 25th anniversary of the 1992 Los Angeles riots with an hour-long Netflix special about Rodney King, whose vicious police beating triggered the chaos after the LAPD officers involved were acquitted despite their savage attack having been captured on video, filmed by a local man from his apartment balcony and seen by TV viewers around the world. That video became the most famous witness footage since the Zapruder film of the Kennedy assassination; Lee used it as the prologue to his 1992 movie Malcolm X.

British Social Realism

British Social Realism | LVI Film | Scoop.it
From its beginnings in the documentary movement of the thirties, to its more stylistically eclectic and generically hybrid contemporary forms, socialrealism in British cinema remains a rich and diverse tradition. Samantha Lay examines the movements, moments, and cycles of British social realist texts through a detailed consideration of practice, politics, form, style, and content. It also includes case studies of key texts including Listen To Britain, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Letter To Brezhnev, and Nil By Mouth. The book considers the challenges for social realist film practice and production in Britain, now and in the future.

'Furious 8' Tops $1 Billion, 'Latin Lover' and 'Baahubali 2' Open Big & 'Guardians 2' Debuts - Box Office Mojo

'Furious 8' Tops $1 Billion, 'Latin Lover' and 'Baahubali 2' Open Big & 'Guardians 2' Debuts - Box Office Mojo | LVI Film | Scoop.it

'Furious 8' Tops $1 Billion, 'Latin Lover' and 'Baahubali 2' Open Big & 'Guardians 2' Debuts

While it's no small feat that The Fate of the Furious finished atop the box office for a third weekend in a row while crossing $1 billion worldwide, Pantelion's How to be a Latin Lover and Great India Films' Baahubali 2: The Conclusion are stealing some of the spotlight as the two films finished in second and third place at the domestic box office, despite the fact the two films played in just over 1,500 theaters combined. Additionally, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 got off to a healthy start overseas, one week ahead of its domestic debut.

With an estimated $19.3 million, Fate of the Furious sees its domestic cume grow to $192.7 million, earning a third weekend atop the domestic box office. Of course, the bigger story is the film became Universal's fifth title to top $1 billion worldwide, joining the ranks of Jurassic World ($1.67 billion), Furious 7 ($1.52 billion), Minions ($1.16 billion) and Jurassic Park ($1.04 billion). This weekend Furious 8 is estimated to have brought in $68.4 million from 69 markets bringing its international total to $867.6 million. The only new opener this week was Japan where the film delivered an estimated $7.5 million, the largest opening for a Fast film in Japan.

Second place belongs to Lionsgate's release of Pantelion's How to be a Latin Lover starring Eugenio Derbez and Salma Hayek. The film played in just 1,118 theaters and delivered an estimated $12 million for a $10,750 per theater average. This is the largest opening for a Pantelion film to date and the "A" CinemaScore grade from opening day audiences is sure to aid its legs moving forward. Additionally, the film played to an audience that was 55% female, 75% of the overall audience was 25 years or older and 89% were Hispanic.
