    Toronto and the Fall Market Season Begins (The Real Rights List)

    Now that everyone has listed the new titles announced for Toronto, Venice and San Sebastian, Locarno is over, Rome is waiting in the wings, and Telluride has finally told, I would like to do a survey of some films' sales' stats. IM Global is treating Toronto as an all-out market. The sales agents as well as the publicists are positioning their films via email to the trade. I just saw White Wedding by Jann Turner ♀ which is being sold in the "market" as well by The Little Film Company and its positive review in L.A. Times. It is very timely and enjoyable, at the same time touches ever more present issues of race and equality, this time in ...

    Spout's Fall Movie Preview - Part 2

    Here is the second half of our Fall Movie Preview, highlighting the season's most anticipated studio offerings as well as a number of indie titles expected to receive successful wide releases in the months of November and December. The first section, which looked at films opening in September and October, was a little easier to pilfer through, whereas the closer we get to the new year the more crowded the calendar is and will be with Oscar hopefuls. The big holidays also typically feature a surge of big budget family entertainment like the new installments of the "Harry Potter" and "Chronicles of Narnia" franchises and broad comedies like "Li...

It closes out one season with a bang (and a lot of stabbing and slicing) and ...
