What does the world of film look like on the big screen?
Posted On July 6, 2021
The first of the year’s big cinema releases is in cinemas across the country and beyond.
Here’s what you need to know about some of the best new films coming to cinemas, and why you might want to check out some of your favourites.
In London, a film by the British director James Foley is being screened in a series of screenings at the National Theatre this week, and a new British comedy is being shown at the same time.
Filmmaker, director and producer, Owen Wilson, has created a new series called The Filmmaker’s Guide to Cinema and its stars James Franco and Amy Schumer.
The film follows the three friends as they explore a dystopian future where the internet has taken over.
The film is a satire on a post-internet society where all of the information has been stored and transmitted, including the people, places, and things that people experience.
In the first episode, we meet the “Internet Gods”, who are people who are so good at keeping things up-to-date, they know everything about the world around them.
They’re able to make sense of everything, even though it’s just a bunch of gibberish.
“I love cinema as much as anyone,” Wilson told the New York Times.
“It is the world’s best form of artistic expression.”
The first episode of The Films Guide to Cinemas features a parody of the film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which was filmed in Toronto and screened at the Toronto International Film Festival in November.
It follows a young girl (Kelsey Grammer) who has to deal with the effects of cyber-bullying after her parents’ divorce, and her father (James Franco) who is the “internet god”.
The Filmmakers Guide to Theatre is a new feature-length documentary, directed by filmmaker, writer and producer Owen Wilson.
The documentary follows a group of theatre enthusiasts, including director, producer and director, as they travel around the world, meeting people, experiencing theatre, and finding out about the art of cinema.
It’s been nominated for a BAFTA, Emmy and Emmy award.
At this year’s Toronto International Filmmaking Festival, Wilson will be the headliner at the Canadian International Film and Screen Festival, taking part in a panel discussion on cinema and filmmaking.
Wilson has also been nominated in a variety of other categories including Best Foreign Film, Best Documentary Short, Best Director Short and Best Documentarian Short.
Fiona Shaw is also making a film in the US this year called My Girl, which follows the experiences of a young woman living in New York City as she navigates her first year in the capital.
This is the first time Shaw is going to work with a director, and she’s very excited about the film.
Shaw told the Hollywood Reporter: “I’ve had the pleasure of working with directors before, and this is the biggest and best opportunity I’ve had to work directly with a filmmaker.”
This will be Shaw’s first feature-film appearance.
She’s been working on the feature film The Girl, a comedy about a girl in her early 20s living in the same apartment complex as a young actor.
Shaw said: “It’s a little bit like a modern day version of my childhood and a lot of my parents’ childhood.”
It will also be Shaw and co-star Jamie Bell’s first time working with a producer.
Shaw added: “When I first met [producer] Dave Arquette, he asked me if I wanted to go work with him on this project.
So it’s a real honour to be working with someone like Dave, to work in a studio with him.”
Bell, who will play the character, is a veteran of films including The Wolf of Wall Street and American Hustle.
He said: “[Director] David Fincher and I have been friends for years and years and I know Dave very well.
We just had a great time together last year at Cannes.
So we’re looking forward to this project.”
Fincher, who helmed the recent blockbuster The Imitation Game, has also worked on films like the forthcoming The Shape of Water and his first feature, The Theory of Everything.
He told the Toronto Sun: “He is an amazing director, he has a real sense of humor and I think he’s going to have a great vision for the film.”
