    Maybe it's not kosher to take articles verbatim like this and my previous ScreenDaily reprint. But Patrick Frater, former journalist with Screen and Variety among other pubs, started his data-based online news Film Business Asia not too long ago and it is filling a much needed position covering Asia from both Eastern and Western povs. This article on how three great South Korean films, Poetry, The Housemaid and Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Livesfared in their French theatrical release is unique. The stories are derived from the data collected by Patrick and his partner Stephen Cremin. As they describe it, Film Business Asia is a ...

    Rights Round Up Cannes 2010 by International Sales Agent: A-C

    One of the most popular reports I publish is the Rights Roundup to show the trade who sold what to whom during the market (Cannes in this case). The ISAs (international sales agents) are all linked to their own websites. I wish all of the distribution companies who pick up the films for their territories (there are about 40 territories) and all the titles were also linked, but I lack the manpower to do the job 100% so only some are linked to their own company websites, or in the case of titles, to IMDbPro Title Pages. This reports allows sales agents to gauge their competitors, see who is buying similar types of films, and it allows buyers...

    When are Films Political? (Part 3): Armadillo

    The film that knocked Prince of Persia off the top spot at the Danish box office the week of June 3 was the Cannes Critics' Week documentary Armadillo. During the festival it had the Danish talk-show circuit buzzing about what Danish soldiers were doing in Afghanistan. There was such a clamour among the public to see it that the film was been rushed into cinemas immediately after Cannes, almost two months in advance of its original release date. On June 21 the Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen paid a surprise visit to the Armadillo outpost but it was cancelled because of Taliban attacks on the Danish positions. Armadillo, current...
