NBCUNIVERSAL ACQUIRES RIGHTS TO J. K. ROWLING’S WIZARDING WORLD FRANCHISE

August 13, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

All Eight HARRY POTTER Films Plus the Upcoming FANTASTIC BEASTS Releases to go to NBCUniversal in Expansive Multi-Network Partnership That Also Incorporates Theme Park Events

NEW YORK – August 8, 2016 – NBCUniversal today announced an exclusive deal with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution for broadcast and cable network television rights in the United States to all of the films in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World franchise. Beginning July 1, 2018, all eight HARRY POTTER films can be seen on NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment’s USA Network and Syfy in a deal that also gives rights to air the films across all NBCUniversal television networks. The agreement includes exclusive basic cable rights to the new FANTASTIC BEASTS films – the first of which releases early November 2016. In addition, the partnership incorporates exclusive content and events for the Universal theme parks.

As the exclusive television home for J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, USA Network and Syfy will partner with Warner Bros. to bring viewers content that includes extended director’s cut versions of the first two Harry Potter films; the 2011 “When Harry Left Hogwarts” featurette; and 3D versions of the last two films in the Harry Potter series.

J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World has captured the imagination of fans of all ages, from all walks of life, all over the world…and I’m definitely one of them,” said Bonnie Hammer, Chairman, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “I’m thrilled that our networks will be the home for this brilliant storyteller’s magical creations for years to come.”

“We are pleased to bring one of the most successful and enduring global franchises to the networks of NBCUniversal,” said Jeffrey R. Schlesinger, President, Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution. “We feel this is a perfect new home for the ‘Harry Potter’ films and the upcoming ‘Fantastic Beasts’ films. Having all of these films in one place builds upon the existing relationship we already have with NBCUniversal and J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, and creates many exciting new opportunities across multiple platforms for both our companies and the fans of this franchise.”

The multi-business partnership includes both on-air and digital rights across NBCUniversal television networks through April 2025. Additionally through this deal, Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Japan can explore a range of new opportunities including fan events, movie screenings and promotional activities tied to the “Harry Potter” franchise and the upcoming “Fantastic Beasts” film series. The deal also envisages collaboration on joint digital initiatives to support the franchise, working with J.K. Rowling’s Pottermore, the digital heart of the Wizarding World, which hosts articles, features and exclusive, original writing by J.K. Rowling.

“Each of the Harry Potter areas within our theme parks around the globe build on the incredible stories of J.K. Rowling and the amazing films created by Warner Bros.,” said Tom Williams, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Universal Parks & Resorts. “These are special places where the entire family can experience the adventures of Harry Potter.”

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort, Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Japan, along with The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade at Universal Orlando Resort, have become global entertainment phenomena. They offer guests immersive, expansive environments complete with innovative attractions, shops and restaurants. The lands bring the films to life in an entirely new way and immerse guests in the adventures of Harry Potter. Universal worked closely with J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros. to create the areas to ensure they are as authentic as possible.

August 11, 2016 (Beverly Hills, Calif.) – CW Seed, the digital channel of The CW Network, will debut a new animated series in 2017, FREEDOM FIGHTERS: THE RAY, based on the characters from DC and produced by Warner Bros.’ digital studio Blue Ribbon Content.

Raymond “Ray” Terrill was a reporter who discovered a group of government scientists working on a secret project to turn light into a weapon of mass destruction. But before he could report on his findings, the project head exposed Ray to a “genetic light bomb.” The bomb failed to kill him and instead gifted Ray with light-based powers. With these abilities, Ray realized he could go beyond reporting on injustice – he could take action to help stop it. Calling himself The Ray, he was recruited by Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters to fight violence and oppression wherever it exists.

KINGSGLAIVE: FINAL FANTASY XV FILM FEATURES ORIGINAL MUSIC BY COMPOSER JOHN R. GRAHAM

August 11, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

2hjb_jg05bookshelf20276BNW--1

(August 11, 2016) Composer John R. Graham (BITCH SLAP) has written the original music to the upcoming film KINGSGLAIVE: FINAL FANTASY XV. Although the story of the action-packed full-length CG motion picture is effectively self-contained, it is also part of a complex and dynamic fictional universe shared with two other properties, BROTHERHOOD series and upcoming video game FINAL FANTASY© XV. The soundtrack also features the main theme, written by Yoko Shimomura, who composed the music for the upcoming game.

“Like Final Fantasy itself, Kingsglaive generates much of its energy through opposites. It blends magic and technology, the real and unreal, tolerance and intolerance,” said Graham. “I was brought into write filmic music that would inhabit the world of the film, a counterbalance to Yoko Shimomura’s beloved music for the Final Fantasy game series (Shimomura’s work is also featured in the film). I ended up writing about 100 minutes of music which I hope conveys this simultaneous light-and-dark feeling and underlines the contradictions of the characters, the plot and even the lighting of the film.”

The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the sacred Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis of Lucis (Sean Bean) commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx (Aaron Paul) and his fellow soldiers fight to protect Lucis. As the overwhelming military might of the empire bears down, King Regis is faced with an impossible ultimatum – to marry his son, Prince Noctis to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae (Lena Headey), captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to the empire’s rule. Although the king concedes, it becomes clear that the empire will stop at nothing to achieve their devious goals, with only the Kingsglaive standing between them and world domination.

“In Kingsglaive, sacrifice is real and the stakes for the characters are sometimes fatal,” Graham described. “With those feelings running through the movie, the musical score has to feel large-scale and reflect the loss and hazards the characters experience.” To achieve this, he used a large orchestra plus electronic elements and the human voice. “The entire arsenal! Musically the score moves back and forth between dark and light, reflecting the ambiguity and changing position of both the characters and even the place, Lucius, where much of the action occurs.”

John R. Graham has written scores for over a dozen feature films, video games, TV (live action and animation), documentaries, and trailers for movies and games. He’s provided music for Square Enix, DeNA, Bethesda Softworks, The Creative Assembly, Disney, LucasArts, Universal, Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, ABC, CBS and many others.

John’s film credits include BITCH SLAP (directed by Rick Jacobson), MY BROTHER’S WAR (directed by and starring James Brolin), and ALLEGED (directed by Tom Hines). His music appears in dozens of movie and game trailers including STAR WARS FALLEN EMPIRE, CINDERELLA, THE ELDER SCROLLS, THE BOX TROLLS, HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2, DISHONORED 2, BOOK OF LIFE, BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT, and AVATAR.

John grew up near the Blue Ridge Mountains, and holds degrees from Williams College and Stanford University. The son of two professors, John has nurtured the two halves of his brain, having worked both as a high level-business executive for Fortune 500 companies and as a film and game composer.

Stage 6 Films and Square Enix present KINGSGLAIVE: FINAL FANTASY XV in theaters on August 19, 2016 and on Digital August 30. The KINGSGLAIVE: FINAL FANTASY XV Original Soundtrack will be available digitally in the US on August 30, worldwide on September 9, and on CD October 26, 2016. FINAL FANTASY© XV will be available for multiple game platforms on September 30, 2016.

STAMFORD, Conn. – August 10, 2016 – Coming up tonight on NBC Olympics’ coverage of the Games of the XXXI Olympiad from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil:

  •  Swimming coverage heats up tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC, live (ET/CT), featuring Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte as they seek to advance in the men’s 200m IM semifinals.

Click here for a preview of tonight’s primetime action.

Following are highlights from today’s coverage of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games on NBC and the networks of NBCUniversal:

NBC’s Olympic Daytime host Mike Tirico’s on-air tribute to the late John Saunders: “If you’ve watched sports on TV over the last 30 years, you’ve had the chance to get to know John Saunders – ESPN sports host and part of the foundation of that network. Today, we got shocking word that John passed away suddenly. An incredible talent, a giving man, his laughter was infectious and it’s been echoing all day in the minds of many of us who called him a friend. John, until his very last day, was a mentor. He will be remembered as a true pro in every sense of the word. His love of his native Canada and his favorite sport, hockey, was only surpassed by his love of his family. That’s where our thoughts are – with his wife Wanda, and his two daughters Aleah and Jenna. John was a great man and we’ll miss him terribly.”

***

SWIMMING – NBC

Tirico to swimming analyst Rowdy Gaines: “Rowdy, how cool is it for the people who live this sport to see all the other athletes come out? I was sitting with the U.S. golf team last night. Kevin Durant and the U.S. basketball team were there too. How does that make a swimmer feel when you guys are the sexiest sport to see?”

Gaines in response: “I can’t begin to tell you how much it means to me because we kind of get pushed back in the closet in between the Olympic Games. It is so nice to be able to shine. Like it or not, the pinnacle of success for a swimmer is the Olympic Games. It is our World Series, it is our Super Bowl.”

Gaines on the legacy of Ryan Lochte: “Ryan is a really laid back dude. He is content being the second guy right now. Ryan is very comfortable in his position in his career and with his legacy of what he has left. Listen, 12 Olympic medals is a pretty good legacy to leave. If he was in a completely different era, we would be talking about the greatest swimmer of all time with Ryan Lochte. But he will certainly go down as one of the greatest.”

Gaines on the difficult upcoming schedule for Michael Phelps: “These next 36 hours are going to be unbelievable for Michael Phelps. He has got some tough swims ahead of him. Two today, potentially three tomorrow.”

Gaines on how the controversy has affected Russian swimmer Yulia Efimova during her 200m breaststroke heat: “There is a huge emotional toll to what she has gone through. Regardless of how you feel about the situation, there is no doubt that the emotional toll is much more than the physical toll.”

INDOOR VOLLEYBALL – NBC

Analyst Kevin Barnett on the U.S. women’s team victory over Serbia: “Most solid performance yet from the Americans. They are climbing at the right moment.”

Note: The U.S. beat Serbia 3-1

CYCLING – NBCSN

Play-by-play commentator Paul Sherwen on American Kristin Armstrong’s gold medal victory in Women’s time trial: “From Boise, Idaho, Kristin Armstrong rewrites the history books in cycling, being the first road cyclist ever to win three gold medals in a row.”

Click here to see Kristin Armstrong win gold.

Analyst Christian Vande Velde on Swiss gold medalist Fabian Cancellara prior to him winning the men’s time trial: “Always one of the fastest on the time trial bikes, Fabian Cancellara has no fear. Actually, I wouldn’t say he’s crazy because he’s completely in control, but I will say when he does fall off, he falls off very hard because he is going so fast. A lot of times the motorcycles have a very hard time keeping up with Fabian. They’re lucky it’s actually wet. If it was dry, there’s no way they would be keeping up with him.”

***

SOCCER – NBCSN

Steve Bower on Honduras advancing to the quarterfinals over Argentina: “There it is! Honduras for just the second time in their history goes through to the quarterfinals of the Olympic Games. For the first time since 1964, the two time gold medalists and pre-tournament favorite, Argentina has failed to advance from the group stage!”

Note: Argentina drew 1-1 against Honduras

RUGBY – USA NETWORK

Analyst Brian Hightower on Perry Baker’s journey to making the U.S. men’s Olympic Rugby team: “People talk about this young man’s rise to the U.S. team. He has had to go to some dark places in order to get where he is today. It wasn’t always just tries and long runs for Perry Baker. He has put in the work so many times and thought about quitting. He was living in his Ford truck for a while. Now, he gets his reward.”

Play-by-play announcer Bill Seward after the U.S. men’s ruby team’s losses to Fiji in the last game of pool play: “With the victory by Fiji, 24-19, the United States is eliminated from medal contention – a tough way to go. The number one team is moving along.”

FENCING – MSNBC

Analyst Jeff Bukantz on U.S. fencer Daryl Homer’s unexpectedly successful Olympic journey: “It’s never easy to get the last touch. Considering his own coach, Yury Gelman, said he had almost no expectation for Homer in Rio. Homer has pulled it together after a terrible World Cup season and has made it into the semifinals of the Olympic Games. ”

NCIS: NEW ORLEANS

CODE BLACK

Rob Lowe joins the cast as Col. Ethan Willis, who has been embedded at Angels Memorial by the U.S. Military’s most elite medical program to teach innovative medicine in a hospital that often resembles a combat zone, which is very familiar to him.

 

 

 

 

 

Boris Kodjoe has been upped to a series regular.

Sandrine Holt joins the cast as Patricia Thornton, an ex-field agent turned director of operations for DXS (Department of External Services). She doesn’t let the title “Boss” stand in her way and is always willing to join the team in the field – she’s not going to let those under her have all the fun.

 

 

 

 

Tristin Mays joins the cast as Riley Davis, a highly unpredictable computer hacker with a chip on her shoulder. Her brain teems with knowledge about computer coding, and, although she’s pleased to be recruited for MacGyver’s (Lucas Till) team rather than be locked up in prison, she doesn’t show much gratitude.

TRAINING DAY

 

Christina Vidal joins the cast as Detective III Valeria Chavez, who, without the LAPD raid jacket and handcuffs, might be taken for a soccer mom. She’s the best investigator in the Robbery Homicide Division, which puts her high in the running for best investigator in the world.

 

Kino Lorber Releases Fritz Lang’s Destiny on Blu-ray & DVD August 30th

August 10, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

06600033-25bb-48d3-9420-2a683ad61d38

NEW YORK, NY – AUGUST 10, 2016 – Kino Lorber is proud to announce the Blu-ray and DVD of Fritz Lang’s 1921 silent masterwork, DESTINY, in a stunning new 2K restoration by the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung. Weaving together stories of tragic love, set in three distinct historical places and periods, DESTINY established director Fritz Lang as one of the leading filmmakers of the German silent era, and laid the groundwork for his highly-stylized classics such as Die Nibelungen and Metropolis.

This new restoration of DESTINY was released theatrically by Kino Lorber, opening at New York’s Film Forum in May 2016 before moving on to engagements in national markets. DESTINY will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on August 30, 2016, presented with a newly-composed score by Cornelius Schwehr, performed by the Berlin Rundfunk Symphony Orchestra. This edition contains the original German intertitles, with optional English subtitles. Special features include audio commentary by film historian Tim Lucas, restoration demonstration footage, and the 2016 re-release trailer. The SRP for the Blu-ray is $29.95, and the SRP for the DVD is $24.95.
A dizzying blend of German Romanticism, Orientalism, and Expressionism, Fritz Lang’s DESTINY (Der müde Tod) marked a bold step for Lang, away from the conventional melodrama and into the kind of high-concept filmmaking that would culminate in such über-stylized works as Die Nibelungen and Metropolis.

DESTINY is a visually ambitious, cinematic allegory in which a young woman (Lil Dagover) confronts the personification of Death (Bernhard Goetzke), in an effort to save the life of her fiancé (Walter Janssen). She is transported to a Gothic cathedral, where lives are represented as burning candles of varying length. Death weaves three romantic tragedies, and offers to unite the girl with her lover, if she can prevent the death of the lovers in at least one of the episodes. Thus begin three exotic scenarios of ill-fated love, in which the woman must somehow reverse the course of destiny: Persia, Quattrocento Venice, and a fancifully-rendered ancient China.

Restored by Anke Wilkening on behalf of the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung, this definitive presentation of DESTINY preserves the original German intertitles and simulates the historic color tinting and toning of its initial release. Accompanying the film is a newly-composed score by Cornelius Schwehr as a commissioned composition by ZDF / ARTE performed by the 70-member Berlin Rundfunk Symphony Orchestra under the direction of conductor Frank Strobel.

Kino Lorber will also be releasing Fritz Lang’s THE SPIDERS on Blu-ray August 23, 2016, with a SRP of $29.95. With this exotic adventure film, director Fritz Lang established himself as a master of epic storytelling, a talent that would reach its pinnacle in such monumental films as Metropolis and Die Nibelungen. Influenced by the French serials of Louis Feuillade (Fantômas) and infused with Lang’s own fascination with Asian culture, THE SPIDERS follows international adventurer Kay Hoog (Carl de Vogt) in his quest for Incan gold and the precious “Buddha’s head” diamond. Along the way, he must contend with an organization of criminal spies known as The Spiders, who will employ any form of treachery, including murder, to snatch the artifacts from his possession.
