This Week on The Establishing Shot:
Over the last 2 weeks notable films we have seen include; Killer Joe (review up soon), How I Spent My Summer Vacation or Get the Gringo (review up soon), The Avengers (again review here!), The Raid: Redemption (review here!), This Must Be the Place (absolutely sublime, brilliant direction and Sean Penn's performance is outstanding) as well as a number of older films including:

British: Haven (So Orlando Bloom can act when he has the right material, great little tale)
American: Against All OddsFort Apache the Bronx (Mel Gibson stole his Lethal Weapon crazy bit from Paul Newman as much as the stooges), The Wanderers (has aged well and the emotional content more pertinent years on)
Bond: Licence to Kill (Timothy Dalton still the Bond most like Connery, prior to Daniel Craig)

South Korean: Memories of Murder (too long, muddy characterisation but engaging), Bedevilled (tragic WTF)
French: White Material (absolutely riveting), Plein Soleil or Purple Noon (still the best Ripley film to date), 2 Days in Paris (Julie Delpy can direct, highly enjoyable), Point Blank (gripping TV style production)
Japanese: Tokyo! (surreal magic from this collaborative project),
Nicolas Winding Refn: Nicolas Winding Refn shines with two early projects Fear XBleeder

Sadly we missed Salute which looks like a powerful documentary based on an event from history that I was not aware of - the infamous human rights Black Power Salute at the 1968 Mexico Olympics and how this major event in Olympic history had a major global impact not only on human rights and racial equality at all subsequent Olympics but for human rights on a global scale.

Last night we attended the very swish launch for the Virgin Media Shorts film competition at Sketch and whilst wildly impressed with the venue, it came in second to the great company and people I met last night including Jason Wingard last year's Virgin Media Shorts Grand Prize with his short 2:20 which you can see below. We should have a write up of last night's launch  up soon.

Zaytoun is the story of the unlikely alliance between a ten-year-old Palestinian refugee and an Israeli fighter pilot shot down over Beirut in 1982.  Their initial distrust develops into friendship as they make their way across war-torn Lebanon on a journey to a place they both call home.

THE WORLD’S MOST HAUNTED HOUSE OPENS ITS DOORS TO HAMMER
THE ICONIC PRODUCTION CO. OPTIONS RIGHTS TO DEVELOP AND PRODUCE
HORROR FEATURE FILM IMAGINATION DESIGN WORKS, INC. AND NINE/8 ENTERTAINMENT TO CO PRODUCE
In the first deal of its kind, the San Jose, California based Winchester Mystery House considered the “world’s most haunted house” is authorizing Hammer, an Exclusive Media company, the use of its unique property for a feature film based on its legendary story.   Hammer has optioned all rights to develop and produce the feature film with Imagination Design Works (IDW) and Nine/8 Entertainment, it was announced today by Simon Oakes, Vice-Chairman of Exclusive Media and President & CEO of Hammer, and Guy East and Nigel Sinclair, Co-Chairmen of Exclusive Media.

Production on the supernatural horror film currently in development will be overseen by Exclusive Media’s Tobin Armbrust, President of Worldwide Production and Acquisitions, and Shira Rockowitz, Director of Development and Production.  Brett Tomberlin and Antonia Lianos will produce for Imagination Design Works, Inc along with Andrew Trapani and Brian Gilbert for Nine/8 Entertainment.

“The Winchester House has a rich and compelling history.  The story behind how it was built has attracted a great deal of attention over the years and we are excited to bring that mythology to film,” said Tobin Armbrust.  “We are also thrilled, and terrified, that the House has allowed us to film on the premises”.

"We are extremely excited to be partnering with Exclusive Media to bring the story of the Winchester Mystery House to a global audience.  For many years, the mystique and history of this unique venue, and its owner Sarah Winchester, could be experienced only by those visiting the site.  Now, with a film shot in and around the House, Sarah's spirit will be brought back to life, and the audience will see first-hand this stunning and bizarre house," said Brett Tomberlin, President, Imagination Design Works.

The Winchester Mystery House has a startling history and attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists annually. Popular belief holds that Sarah Winchester, heiress to the Winchester Rifle fortune, was convinced she was haunted by the spirits of those killed by “the gun that won the west.”  Following a Medium’s advice, Sarah built a massive house in Northern California to appease the spirits.  For the next 38 years, she never stopped building believing that if she continued, she would live forever, and if she stopped, she would die.  Known as the “house built for the spirits,” there have been many inexplicable ghost sightings and to this day, visitors share their terrifying stories of having been in the presence of these departed souls who continue to roam the grounds of the intricate and enigmatic house.

Imagination Design Works, Inc. organizes the famous “Fright Nights,” a special ticketed event held at the Winchester Mystery House during the month of October, providing a true Halloween experience to visitors.

Andrew Trapani of Nine/8 Entertainment previously produced THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT for Lionsgate.  Released in Spring 2009 and starring Oscar Nominee Virginia Madsen, HAUNTING opened as the #2 film in the U.S., generating over $23M at the box office in its opening weekend of release and is now amongst the top grossing films in Lionsgate history.  Trapani also recently produced THE CHOSEN ONE, an animated film for the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers.

Upcoming projects include executive producing the TV series, “Wallace,” based on the life of Scotsman William Wallace, created and written by Mick Davis, the original supernatural thriller CANDLE, and a biopic about famed auto-maker John DeLorean. Trapani began his entertainment career as a video game designer and producer for Crystal Dynamics, Inc where he oversaw the development and production of some of the first Sony Playstation games.

Brian Gilbert most recently produced Warner Bros. Premiere/Cartoon Network’s “Scooby Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster” and “Scooby Doo! The Mystery Begins.” His past film credits include the horror film WRONG TURN starring Desmond Harrington, Eliza Dushku and Jeremy Sisto released by 20th Century Fox and nominated for Best Film at the Sitges Catalonian International Film Festival, as well as THE DEATHS OF IAN STONE starring Mike Vogel, Jaime Murray and Christina Cole released by After Dark Films.  Gilbert is also executive producer alongside Trapini on “Wallace” and produced as well as directed THE CHOSEN ONE.

NICK FROST TAKES TO THE FLOOR WITH CUBAN FURY
CO-STARRING RASHIDA JONES, CHRIS O'DOWD AND OLIVIA COLMAN
Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul), Rashida Jones (The Social Network, I Love You, Man), Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids, The Boat That Rocked) & Olivia Colman (Hot Fuzz, Hyde Park on Hudson, Tyrannosaur) to star in James Griffiths’ hot stepping comedy CUBAN FURY, co-financed by STUDIOCANAL, Film4 and the BFI Film Fund.
Beneath Bruce Garrett's shabby, overweight exterior, the passionate beating heart of a salsa king lays dormant.  Only one woman can reignite his Latin fire. Spotlight hits, sweat drips, heels click - Nick Frost IS Cuban Fury.

CUBAN FURY marks James Griffiths’ feature film directorial debut with TV credits including Up All Night and Free Agents. Produced by Nira Park and James Biddle of Big Talk, working from an original idea by Nick Frost, the screenwriter is Jon Brown, whose hit TV writing credits include series such as Miranda, Misfits and Fresh Meat. Brown also won the BAFTA for Break-Through Talent in 2011. Executive Producers are Nick Frost, Matthew Justice and Rachael Prior (Big Talk), Danny Perkins and Jenny Borgars (STUDIOCANAL) and Tessa Ross (Film4).

Nick Frost comments “My aim with Cuban Fury was to make a romantic comedy with fiery Salsa at its heart. I wanted to show people that sometimes it's not about a perfect nose and abs of steel, sometimes passion, soul and fire is enough. And in case you're wondering yes, I'll do all my own dancing.”

Nira Park adds “For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to make a dance movie. Even better a comedy dance movie. So when I received an email from Nick Frost which read: "how would you feel if I said we should do a film where I DANCE A LOT. Imagine me in tightly fitted sequinned garments with a lot of slow-mo", I said: "I want the poster for that movie on my wall now!" Nick's idea for Cuban Fury was fantastic, and finding newcomer Jon Brown to collaborate with him and write the script was the first step - Jon just has that knack for funny that is completely innate. Being able to bring James Griffiths on to direct was the final piece of the jigsaw. We had a fantastic time making our TV show Free Agents together, and had been looking for the right movie project to collaborate on for a long time. I can't wait to see Nick in a role that will showcase all of his incredible talents as a performer, even those that have remained more hidden up to this point! And I feel incredibly lucky that we have managed to persuade the unbelievably gifted Rashida Jones, Chris O'Dowd and Olivia Colman to join us for the ride.”

1987: A 13 year old natural born dancer with fire in his heels and snakes in his hips is working himself up to explode all over the UK Junior Salsa Championships. But then… a freakish bullying incident on the mean streets of London robs him of his confidence, and our young hero finds his life diverted down a very different path.

So it is that 22 years later, an adult Bruce Garrett (Nick Frost) finds himself out-of-shape and unloved - trapped in a downward spiral of self-pity, repression and Nando’s take-outs. Only Julia (Rashida Jones), his smart, funny, gorgeous new American boss, gives him reason to live. But she’s untouchable. Out of his league, so he imagines, with her perfect smile and perfect life.  Unknown to Bruce however, Julia has issues all of her own. Luckily for him, she also has a secret passion…

Then there’s Drew (Chris O’Dowd), his alpha male colleague and horny king-monkey of the office. With Drew making no secret of his desire to get (his words) “all up inside Julia”, Bruce is forced into action…

And thus, Bruce is once again brought face-to-face with the darkest and most powerful of his inner demons. Somehow, someway, and with a lot of handholding from loyal sister Sam (Olivia Colman) Bruce must learn how to unshackle his dancing beast, regain his long lost fury and claim the love of his life...and he’s going to do it all On The Dance Floor...

SOUNDWORKS COLLECTION: THE SOUND OF THE AVENGERS
The SoundWorks Collection talks with Supervising Sound Editor and Sound Designer Christopher Boyes about the his work on The Avengers.


Marvel Studios delivers the ultimate comic-book film, which ties together such characters as Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) for a big-screen franchise team-up like no other. Taking center stage this time is Nick Fury (played once again by the note-perfect Samuel L. Jackson), leader of the peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Fury, along with former Russian spy Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), recruits a super team to combat Thor's ever-deceptive brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) after he brainwashes ace archer Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) while stealing a cosmic cube from an underground base. Thus the heroes must learn to work together alongside outlaw scientist Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), who can track down the artifact's gamma signals when he's not hulking out into a giant green monster. Show runner Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly) adapted and helmed the script by Zak Penn.

ATTACK OF THE HERBALS
Scotland's Answer To shaun Of The Dead Directed By David Ryan Keith
Jackson McGregor has returned after years of exile to his grandparent’s home in a small sleepy Scottish village, a village where the daily routine consists of eating, sleeping, fishing and drinking tea.  However the local’s way of life is under threat from a large corporate retail machine headed up by a monster named Bennett who wants to buy land for a new development.

After discovering a crate of herbal tea washed up on shore, Jackson hatches a plan to sell the tea and save the village.  However the new lease of life the tea seems to give people soon turns into a nightmare, and Jackson finds himself in a village of Zimmer-frame wielding, flesh eating pensioners. Can Jackson save the village, redeem himself and stay alive?

Attack of the Herbals puts the Tea back into terror, an outrageously funny horror comedy that is quite simply Scotland’s answer to Shaun of the Dead....

UK DVD & VOD RELEASE DATE: 25 JUNE 2012

ET, Bridget Jones, Marty McFly, Jason Bourne and countless other iconic Universal characters are part of the fabric of cinema history and these films will continue to capture audiences' imaginations for years to come. It is not surprising that Elliot's bike ride in E.T. ranks as the UK's most memorable Universal moment, but what is so fantastic about timeless films like E.T. is that these characters and stories continue to appeal to new generations.

This year we are re-releasing E.T. in addition to Jaws, To Kill a Mockingbird and All Quiet on the Western Front on Blu-ray for the first time, so audiences can re-discover these films all over again. As part of our 100th Anniversary, we have also restored 10 Universal classic titles in an effort to preserve our cinema history and give audiences a chance to view our films in the highest quality possible."

John Pogue said: "Jared Harris is an extraordinarily talented actor and I'm thrilled that he will be playing the key role of Professor Joseph Coupland, who led his most ambitious students in a notorious 1974 experiment to create a poltergeist.  Jared has the perfect blend of charisma, intelligence and wit that the part of Professor Coupland demands, and I'm excited to watch him bring the role to life."

Simon Oakes, President & CEO of Hammer and Vice Chairman of Exclusive Media said: “THE QUIET ONES is set to be an incredibly chilling and sinister picture that we are proud to be a part of.  It’s another unique horror movie which we believe will appeal to audiences around the world.”

THE ESTABLISHING SHOT BOOK NEWS: 
TASCHEN RELEASE LAWRENCE SCHILLER’S MARILYN & ME
Marilyn forever! — On occasion of its 65th birthday, the Cannes film festival pays tribute de Marilyn Monroe by choosing her as its poster girl for 2012.  As one of the greatest of Hollywood’s icons, she has been featured in every magazine and newspaper across the globe fifty years after her premature death and “reincarnated” in the recent movie My Week with Marilyn. You think you have heard, read and seen all about her. But the worldwide launch in May of TASCHEN’s Limited Edition Marilyn & Me: A Memoir in Words and Photographs by Lawrence Schiller is a true editorial event. Lawrence Schiller’s story has never been told before. He tells it with tact, humour and compassion. Step into Marilyn Monroe’s intimacy at the time when the movie Something’s Got to Give was being shot. More than a hundred extraordinary photographs – sexy, sparkling and moving – from two of her final films, most of them never seen before, contribute to this unexpected, poignant portrait of Marilyn Monroe that you will read straight through to the end without stopping.

Lawrence Schiller began his career as a photojournalist for Life, Playboy, and Paris Match, among others, photographing some of the most iconic figures of the 1960s, from Lee Harvey Oswald to Robert F. Kennedy, from Ali and Foreman to Redford and Newman. His many book collaborations include the Pulitzer Prize-winning book with Norman Mailer, The Executioner's Song; and he has written five New York Times bestsellers. He has also directed seven motion pictures and miniseries for television; The Executioner's Song and Peter the Great won five Emmys. He is also the founder of The Norman Mailer Center & Writer’s Colony in Provincetown, Massachusetts.

World premiere in Cannes:
Opening of Lawrence Schiller’s exhibition and launch of his book Marilyn & Me during the Cannes film festival on Thursday, May 17, 2012, 5:00 – 6:30pm
