April 02 Fox Searchlight Creates Scoreless Print Of Terrence Malick’s ‘Tree Of Life’

While we’ve wondered about the diminishing returns of Terrence Malick’s recent work, there is no question 2011’s “The Tree Of Life” is a powerful piece of cinema. A universe-spanning tale about fathers and sons, love, grief, faith and more, Malick’s poetic marriage of visuals and philosophical musings is potent, and is aided by solid performances from Jessica Chastain, Brad Pitt and Tye Sheridan that manage to comfortably slide into ambitious scope of the picture. But one of the other big highlights of the film is the music, and it will be taking center stage in a new screening.

Fox Searchlight Pictures has created a scoreless print of “The Tree Of Life” that will be presented National Concert Hall in Dublin in a World Premiere screening presented by Wordless Music, accompanied by the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and choir. They will be playing through pieces by Bach, Couperin, Mozart, Berlioz, Brahms, Smetana, Mussorgsky, Mahler, Holst, Górecki, Tavener, Giya Kancheli, Barry Guy, and Zbigniew Preisner alongside the film in what should be a pretty tremendous experience.

Tickets are now on sale for the event on June 3rd, and if you haven’t made vacation plans already, we hear Dublin is pretty lovely in the summer. To get an idea of what you’ll be hearing, check out our list of all the songs featured in “The Tree Of Life” or listen to the playlist below.

March 11 Monroe- Woodbury High School to be the set of new Netflix series

For four days cameras will be rolling at the Monroe-Woodbury Senior High School as the school will become the set for Netflix’s “The OA.”

The Monroe Woodbury School District has made an announcement on it’s website, encouraging high school students who are interested in the film industry to submit emails stating interest in participating as extras for the series by March 20.

Those interested should as be able to commit to all four days of filming, which begins March 21.

Superintendent of Schools Elsie Rodriguez, said that Netflix originally considered a nearby location, but then reached out to the district to request use of the high school because “we have a beautiful high school and a large campus they could work with,” she said.

Rodriguez also said the filming companies involved gave money to the schools and went through a long vetting process which involved district attorneys to ensure that the project would be in compliance with any applicable laws.

The actual show, titled, “The OA”, will be an hour-long drama series which has agreed to release eight episodes exclusively on Netflix later this year.

March 10 Clooney And Pitt Join In Bidding War For FBI Drama

The Tracking Board is calling it the biggest bidding war of 2016 and so far a lot of Hollywood’s A-listers have put their name in the hat for rights to adapt upcoming book Killers of the Flower Moon.

The book, from New Yorker staff writer Grann, isn’t set for publication until June, 2017, but it’s already triggered a feeding frenzy on the rights market. The non-fiction chronicles the real-life 1920s mystery surrounding the suspicious deaths of several Osage Indians, who were at the time among the richest people on the planet. The story follows the twists and turns of the investigation that eventually became the first major case solved by J. Edgar Hoover’s brand new FBI.

Hollywood A-listers George Clooney and Brad Pitt have put bids in through their respected production companies to get territorial rights for the adaptation. As of last night there were at least ten offers on the table from Hollywood heavy hitters like Jerry Bruckheimer, Kathleen Kennedy (Star Wars) and Anonymous Content who are coming down from their best picture win with Spotlight. Several companies are partnering up to increase their chances.

March 03 Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie’s Miraval Opens the 2015 Rosé Season

A full two weeks ahead of last year, due to an exceptional year with its ideal winemaking conditions, Miraval opens the season for Provence Rosé 2015. With its delicate pale pink color and soft gleams, Miraval Rosé 2015 offers exceptional fruit with immense freshness and minerality.

Marc Perrin (Famille Perrin): “Miraval Rosé 2015 is a nectar of the gods. It is nature at its best, grapes in perfect harmony in the vineyard, and sun of course, because we are in Provence. This vintage all the wines are of stunning quality: white or rosé. It is without any doubt the best vintage yet at Miraval.”

In 2015 the soils of Provence filled up their groundwater reserves right through winter and spring. The timing of flowering was just perfect, during a hot dry period in May and up to mid-June when a wet spell replenished the reserves. These well timed rains and the earth’s natural reserves prevented any hydric stress in the vines and allowed maturities to progress regularly and rapidly, with no scorch in spite of the heat. This balance has ensured an extraordinary aromatic palette for Miraval Rosé which is beautifully fresh and mineral, with subtle notes of citrus, red fruit and white blossom. In the mouth, the expression of the terroir is revealed with balance and elegance, underlined by a superb tension which confers great length. Aromatic persistence characterizes the palate, finishing in a register which is fruity and saline.

Great news for the 2015 vintage: Half bottles of Miraval are now available!

March 02 Brad Pitt, Disney Developing Immigrant Doctor Movie ‘Dr. Q’

Disney and Brad Pitt’s Plan B are developing “Dr. Q” — a movie based on the life story of an illegal immigrant who became the head of brain tumor surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Matt Lopez, whose credits include the Civil War play “The Whipping Man,” has been tapped to write the screenplay about Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa. Plan B, which is run by Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner, began working on the project in 2007 when execs heard about Quinones-Hinajosa on the radio.

Quinones-Hinojosa crossed into the United States from Mexico in the late 1980s when he was 19 and began working on farms in California. He started his education at San Joaquin Delta College and completed his bachelor’s degree at the University of California at Berkeley. He then received his medical degree from Harvard Medical School and became a U.S. citizen.

He is currently a professor of neurosurgery and oncology at Johns Hopkins, where he serves as the director of the brain tumor program at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.
