TOM OF FINLAND Acquired by Kino Lorber Ahead of Tribeca Film Festival Premiere.


KINO LORBER ACQUIRES TOM OF FINLAND, A BIOPIC ABOUT THE ACCLAIMED FINNISH EROTIC ARTIST AND GAY ICON, AHEAD OF ITS NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE AT THE 2017 TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL

New York, NY – April 14, 2017 – Kino Lorber has acquired all North American rights to TOM OF FINLAND, Dome Karukoski’s biopic about the life and work of Finnish artist and gay icon Touko Laaksonen, best known by his pseudonym Tom of Finland.

A trailblazing figure in post-World War II erotic art, Touko Laaksonen drew thousands of fantasy-filled, homoerotic images of intensely masculine (and muscular) men, often liberated from the moral codes of their times. Quickly spreading throughout the world, these images went on to play a significant role in the transnational gay liberation movement that continues to make strides to this day, also becoming iconic symbols for generations of LGBT people worldwide.

Dome Karukoski’s TOM OF FINLAND is set to have its North American premiere at the upcoming Tribeca Film festival, after a world premiere at the Goteborg Film Festival in February. It’s also in high demand among LGBTQ U.S. festivals. The film’s world premiere was followed by a release in its home territory, where TOM OF FINLAND has taken close to $1m at the local box office.

The deal was negotiated between head of worldwide sales Vanessa Saal for Protagonist Pictures and Kino Lorber CEO Richard Lorber.

‘Touko Laaksonen dared to draw and give life to his most daring and transgressive fantasies, and by doing so, inspired an entire generation of LGBT people to also live and desire freely,” said Richard Lorber. “Dome Karukoski’s film captures the man, as well as his milieu, in an incredibly cinematic and powerful way, so we’re very proud to be bringing TOM OF FINLAND to North American audiences this year.”

 

Vanessa Saal of Protagonist added; “We are so pleased the film has found such a good home for North America. Kino Lorber handpicks and nurtures each of its titles. Their enthusiasm is contagious, and we know they will spread TOM OF FINLAND love across America.”

Director Dome Karukoski is an acclaimed Finnish filmmaker with six features to his credit including The Grump (2014), Heart Of A Lion (2013) and Lapland Odyssey (2010).

The film was produced by Finnish production outfit Helsinki Film, with a screenplay by Aleksi Bardy. The cast includes Pekka Strang, Lauri Tilkanen, Jessica Grabowsky, Taisto Oksanen, Seumas Sargent, Jakob Oftebro and Niklas Hogner.

Aleksi Bardy, Miia Haavisto and Annika Sucksdorff of Helsinki Film produced the film. Gunnar Carlsson of Anagram Väst in Sweden, Miriam Nørgaard of Fridthjof Film in Denmark, and Ingvar Thordarson and Sophie Mahlo of Neutrinos Productions Germany were co-producers, in collaboration with Mike Downey and Sam Taylor of Film and Music Entertainment (F&ME) UK.

LEGO Worlds Review

Traveller’s Tales have used the LEGO license perfectly by building Lego Worlds as a rival to Minecraft. The game is loosely tied to some rules but has a nice structure in itself to keep the players interested. The premise has the player as a space traveller who gets bumped onto the world and has his ship broken. So, he rebuilds his ship and sets off in pursuit of new words. In the way, he finds out various devices which help in building, replicating and demolishing.


There is Discovery tool which is largely used throughout the game. Just point it to a new object, hit X when it gets highlighted and the item will be added in your vast library of parts and people. You can then deploy these parts and people whenever their need arises. Going on in the game you will also get the opportunity to build an entire world from the scratch. But before that, you will get introduced to and well versed with all the rules, options and controls of the game.


You get to do amazing things and go on adventures including fighting to save a queen or saving cavemen from the wrath of volcanoes. The most amazing thing is that everything that is part of the game world is made of LEGO. So, you have almost entire control and can copy, paint, build, destroy, almost anything you want.


You can do anything you want to. Create a mountain, replicate a castle, or dig out treasure. Sometimes you may get guided by the game, sometimes you will just want to get your hands dirty and create something amazing. But learning to use the tools and getting used to its not so intelligent input manipulation is hard. Your buildings may get fiddly in the beginning, put some time into and you become an expert.

The only flaw in the game is its issue of frame rate and the camera which gets upset in congested areas. It gets especially annoying when you are moving too fast and the game loads up the terrain slowly. In local co-op mode, the game gets really patchy and may feel like everything is just disconnected from each other. But with the gameplay being of a very relaxed nature, it never becomes much of a problem.

The game has a feel that it is the first towards a much greater game. Just some tweaks here and there and Traveller’s Tales might get something outstanding in line. Still, kids can get easily lost in its world for hours and the offline and co-op mode further complement those possibilities. This game is easily a 4 out 5 for its unique experience.

BLACK LIGHTNING STRIKES IN ATLANTA

BLACK LIGHTNING STRIKES IN ATLANTA

 

Black Lightning First Image Revealed with Production Underway in Atlanta on New

Pilot for The CW from Warner Bros. Television, Based on DC Characters

 

New Costume Designed by Laura Jean Shannon

 

Please find attached the first image from The CW drama pilot BLACK LIGHTNING, from Warner Bros. Television and based on DC characters.

 

  • BLACK LIGHTNING stars Cress Williams (Hart of Dixie) as Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightning.

 

  • The costume for Black Lightning was designed by Laura Jean Shannon, whose many film and television credits include the upcoming Jumanji sequel, The Jungle BookScott Pilgrim vs. The WorldBlade: TrinityGood Girls Revolt and Iron Man, for which she was nominated for a Costume Designers Guild Award.

 

  • Executive producer/writer/director Salim Akil said: “I knew way too much about the world as a young boy growing up in Richmond, California. I was no stranger to violence, death, hopelessness or the feeling that no one cared about what was happening in my life.

 

“Comics were a great way for me to escape. I was about 13 when BLACK LIGHTNING was created, and finally there was a Black Super Hero that gave a damn about our neighborhood and our lives.

 

“Resurrecting him at a time in our society when a sense of hope is lacking…BLACK LIGHTNING will be that hope. And in updating the suit, it will signal to a new generation that it’s time to harness and release our power, and become our own Super Heroes.”

 

  • Production is currently underway in Atlanta.

 

The first African-American DC Super Hero to have his own stand-alone comic title, BLACK LIGHTNING is based on the character created by Tony Isabella with Trevor Von Eeden in 1977. Jefferson Pierce made his choice: he hung up the suit and his secret identity years ago, but with one daughter hell-bent on justice and the other a star student being recruited by a local gang, he’ll be pulled back into the fight as the wanted vigilante and DC legend — Black Lightning.

 

Greg Berlanti, Salim Akil, Mara Brock Akil and Sarah Schechter are executive producers of BLACK LIGHTNING, from Berlanti Productions and Akil Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Salim Akil is directing the pilot from a script he wrote.

LEGO Games Walkthrough Event

Written by Crystal Greenwood

I was fortunate to be shown firsthand demos of LEGO Worlds, LEGO Dimensions, and LEGO CITY Undercover on the PS4. If you’ve never encountered a LEGO video game before, these are action-adventure (RPG feel) where you have to figure out puzzles, collect tons of coins and nuts, and, of course, build certain objects to help advance in the story. Each of these games have their signature LEGO interpretation of characters we know and love like Harry Potter, Princess Leia and Spider-man to name a few.

First was Dimensions with The Goonies pack. I feel if any parent my age was able to see how they translated The Goonies into a live, playable gaming experience, you would have goosebumps like I did. Three words sums up what I felt, Chunk’s Truffle Shuffle! The huge attention to detail from the developers shine through with this title, bringing to life something that they would absolutely love to see as a playable medium. Also, with the LEGO Toy Pad, the Sloth, One-Eyed Willy Pirate Ship and the Skeleton Organ minifigs, The Goonies was literally brought to life with impressive interactive gameplay. It doesn’t stop there. If you have other minfigs like Batman, Robin etc, you can still use them in any Dimensions game out there. It was crazy seeing the Batmobile put into The Goonies world while trying to find treasure! Sky’s the limit!

Next was LEGO CITY Undecover. Along with the theme of ’80s style, LEGO CITY Undercover felt definitely like the cliched, cheesy cop flicks back in the day. The cinematic scenes were very nostalgic from the news reporter to the guy-who-has-heard-of-the-lead-character-before-and-idolizes-way-too-much cliche, classic! When we finally got to the gameplay, driving around was great because even though there are linear missions, there are still opportunities to drive around and explore. The great feature is there’s no need for a map because there will always be a trail of coins and nuts leading back to the next advancement of the story. The gameplay was very fluid, engaging and fun. Just a pleasure to demo.

Then, the best was saved for last, LEGO Worlds. My words would probably not do this game enough justice. Even though I was catered to a completely unlocked experience, I was floored with the real-time rendering and how quick someone can seamlessly create whatever they wanted, seemingly out of thin air. In LEGO Worlds, your character is dropped off into a vast of hills and plains. It’s up to you to figure out how to survive and landscape to your liking. There is a mission, but mostly, there’s so much free range in creativity that it might just be forgotten after a while. Just seeing how the duplication gun would scan an object and then reproduce at will without any kind of glitching or buffering whatsoever was absolutely brilliant. Creating castles with lava moats that even takes life from your character was truly amazing as well. The physics were off-the-wall fun, making this title very easy to lose hours and hours on end and not feel a thing.

I walked away from seeing these demos wanting to run to the store and picking them up for myself, especially to play with my 5 year old and have a family night. I highly recommend these titles to gamers of all ranges from occasional to avid because there’s a tutorial in the beginning with each title. This a very important element, helping whomever to just pick up a game stick and start right away. And, with that, Happy Gaming!

Lego Games Event and Overview 

Laat week i was invited to cover a Lego Games event in New York City. The game demos that were being showcased was LEGO Worlds, LEGO Dimensions, and LEGO City: Undercover. 


The 20 minute demo presentation of LEGO City: Undercover showcased the updated version of the game as there were new features that has been added in along with an upscslaled resolution since it is running on current gen consoles (PS4, XBOX One) and i got a chance to try the game and the controls were much more smoother and satisfying this time and it is easy to play with children as well. 


LEGO Dimensions has brand new minatures for the game along with a brand new pack featuring The Goonies and Harry Poter which is releasing on May 9, 2017. Both if which will have their own levels and challenges and cutscenes as well. 


And finally, LEGO Worlds which was originally a STEAM early access game has finally arrived to consoles last week and i got a chance to try it for the first time. It is a very lot like Minecraft and with many updates that are coming along the way, it will be a huge success. I always thought that this is what a LEGO game needed to be where you can create anything you want at any time and now the vision has came to reality with this game. I have a review copy of the game which i will review this week as well.

LOS ANGELES (March 16, 2017) – Fandango, the leading digital network dedicated to serving consumers with all of their movie needs, announced today the debut of Fandango FanShop (FandangoFanShop.com), its first-ever online merchandise store, offering a curated collection of unique and exclusive wearables, collectibles, experiences and events tied to theatrical releases and beloved movie franchises.  Launching in April, FanShop’s initial offerings will feature gear from the highly anticipated movies “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Wonder Woman,”  “Despicable Me 3,” and many others.

 Leveraging its ongoing movie fan research, Fandango is differentiating FanShop from other merchandise sites and apps by curating select products and experiences that are handpicked by studios, filmmakers and fans.  New merchandise and experiences will be introduced throughout a movie’s life cycle, so there is always something new for fans to discover.  In the coming months, FanShop will also feature dedicated hubs for beloved franchises. 

 Fandango plans to promote FanShop across the company’s digital network, and connect consumers directly to the store to peruse and purchase merchandise.  In the near future, fans will be able to purchase movie tickets and merchandise in the same transaction on Fandango, and buy merchandise with Digital HD movies on FandangoNOW, the company’s video on-demand service.  Fandango also plans to offer movie ticket and merchandise bundles as special promotions, gifts with purchase, and other events.

The company has also grown its business internationally in Latin America, one of the fastest growing global film markets.  In December 2015, Fandango acquired Brazil’s No. 1 online ticketer, Ingresso.com, and in December 2016 acquired Peruvian-based Cinepapaya, renamed Fandango Latin America (Fandango.lat), expanding its online ticketing business to Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Ecuador and Bolivia.
