  PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES 

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES Release Poster
Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced.

  WAR MACHINE 

3 HOURS TILL DEAD Release PosterIn a film for our times, writer-director David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) recreates a U.S. General’s roller-coaster rise and fall as part reality, part savage parody – raising the specter of just where the line between them lies today. His is an anti-establishment, pro-soldier exploration in the form of an absurdist war story of a born leader’s ultra-confident march right into the dark heart of folly. At the story’s core is Brad Pitt’s sly take on a successful, charismatic four-star general who leapt in like a rock star to command NATO forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken down by his own hubris and a journalist’s no-holds-barred expose. War Machine addresses the debt we owe to soldiers to question the purposes to which they are being directed.

    GRAVITAS VENTURES AND SUBMARINE DELUXE HAVE ACQUIRED ‘GILBERT’ FOR A SEPTEMBER THEATRICAL RELEASE AND FOURTH QUARTER RELEASE ON DEMAND AND DVD

    May 24th, 2017

    Gravitas Ventures has acquired North American rights to Gilbert, the wildly funny and unexpectedly poignant portrait of the life and career of one of comedy’s most iconic figures, Gilbert Gottfried. Coming off its critically acclaimed showing at the Tribeca Film Festival, they have slated it for a theatrical release in September as well as a VOD and DVD release in 4Q. Gottfried is joined throughout the film by a who’s who of comedy icons including Whoopi Goldberg, Richard Belzer, Lewis Black, Susie Essman, Arsenio Hall, Anthony Jeselnik and many more.

    Legendary comedian Gilbert Gottfried has had quite the career. Rocketing to fame in the 1980s, he was thrust into the public consciousness almost immediately thanks to his brash personality, unique worldview, and off-kilter comic timing. Now, foul-mouthed and unapologetic after decades of flying solo in both his work and in his personal life, Gilbert has shockingly reinvented himself…as a family man.

    Gilbert reveals an unexpected side to the iconic comedian. The film peeks behind the larger-than-life persona at a more personal story about growing up in Brooklyn and becoming a husband and father late in life. Gottfried’s singular outlook on life and his ability to bring humor to even the darkest situations has, at times, gotten him into trouble. Still he soldiers on, an expert craftsman at bringing his audience to the edge — and sometimes pushing them over. Gilbert strips the comedic character away to reveal the man behind it,.

    “With Gilbert, Neil Berkeley has given us access to a side seldom seen of this comedic icon,” stated Gravitas Founder and CEO Nolan Gallagher. “Watching Gottfried out of ‘character’ is surprisingly refreshing and relatable.”

    Berkeley shared that “Gilbert is a labor of love made by a very small group of passionate people. For a film like this to find a partner like Gravitas is a real thrill and we’re very excited to be working with them. Our hope has always been to make a movie that shows the world an unexpected side of Gilbert and we think Gravitas Ventures is the perfect team to help make that happen.”

    Gilbert is the third film from Director Neil Berkeley (Beauty Is Embarrassing, Harmontown). Berkeley produced with David Heiman, Maggie Contreras and James Andre Leche, with whom he also co-wrote. The Executive Producers are Eddie Schmidt, Clay Tweel and Bart McDonough

    The deal for Gilbert was negotiated by Nolan Gallagher on behalf of Gravitas and by Josh and Ben Braun of Submarine on behalf of the filmmakers.

    SAMUEL GOLDWYN FILMS ACQUIRES NATHAN SILVER’S PSYCHOSEXUAL DRAMA “THIRST STREET”

    May 22nd, 2017

    Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired North American rights to Nathan Silver’s THIRST STREET, starring Lindsay Burdge (“A Teacher”), Damien Bonnard (“Staying Vertical”) and narrated by Academy Award-winner Anjelica Huston. Directed by Silver (“Stinking Heaven,” “Uncertain Terms”) and written by Silver and C. Mason Wells, the darkly comic Paris-set tale of romantic obsession had its World Premiere at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival and is set for release later this year.

    THIRST STREET follows grief-stricken American flight attendant Gina (Burdge) on a layover in Paris, where she hooks up with nightclub bartender Jerome (Bonnard). As Gina falls deeper into lust and opts to stay in France, Jerome’s ex (Esther Garrel) reenters the picture, sending Gina on a downward spiral of miscommunication, masochism and madness.

    The Playlist called THIRST STREET “A wry and disturbed look at lust and longing” and “Delightfully twisted.” Indiewire praised the film as “Enthralling,” adding that it “will make diehard cinephiles salivate.” Slant Magazine said “Burdge and Bonnard oscillate between affection, need, and panic with a liquid ferocity that’s fascinating and moving.”

    THIRST STREET was produced by Louise Bellicaud and Claire Charles-Gervais (In Vivo Films), Josh Mandel (Industry Standard Films), C. Mason Wells (Maudit), Ruben Amar (Papermoon Films), Katie Stern and Joshua Blum (Washington Square Films), Matthew Ellison (Yellow Bear Films), David Solal and Elsa Leeb (TTM Films), and Jordan Goldnadel (The Third Generation).

    “Nathan Silver’s film is a unique tale and we are thrilled to be bringing it to audiences,” says Samuel Goldwyn Films’ President Peter Goldwyn.

    “We are immensely excited to work with Samuel Goldwyn on the release of THIRST STREET. We feel like it’s the ideal home for this French/American labor of love,” says director Nathan Silver.

    Samuel Goldwyn’s Peter Goldwyn and Cinetic’s Jason Ishikawa negotiated the deal.
