‘The Matrix 4’ Taps Oscar-Winning Cinematographer John Toll

‘The Matrix 4’ Taps Oscar-Winning Cinematographer John Toll
“The Matrix 4” is shaping up to be a major event, with Lana Wachowski at the helm to direct and co-write alongside fiction writers Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell, one of the most visionary sci-fi writers of our time. But another artist has joined the ranks.

Cinematographer John Toll will lens the fourth installment in “The Matrix” franchise. He is an Academy Award winner for “Braveheart” and “Legends of the Fall,” and was also nominated for Terrence Malick’s “The Thin Red Line.” Toll also shot Ang Lee’s box-office failure “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” at an extra-high frame rate of 120 frames per second, an experiment that Lee will tinker with once again for “Gemini Man.”

Wachowski previously worked with Toll on the much-maligned “Jupiter Ascending,” the shuttered Netflix series “Sense8,” and the ambitious “Cloud Atlas,” based on the time-hopping novel by “Matrix 4” scribe David Mitchell.

The Matrix 4 Gets Oscar-Winning Braveheart Cinematographer John Toll

The Matrix 4 Gets Oscar-Winning Braveheart Cinematographer John Toll
It has only been a few days since the wondrous news dropped that stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Ann Moss will be once again entering the science fiction world of The Matrix for The Matrix 4. Well, the film seems to be continuing to come together very nicely as it has now been revealed that the Academy-Award winning cinematographer John Toll is in early negotiations to join the much-anticipated film, and put his eye to this iconic post-apocalyptic universe.

John Toll will be taking over from Bill Pope, the man who shot the original Matrix trilogy as well as the live-action sequences featured in the Enter the Matrix video game way back in 2003. Thankfully, Toll may just well be the man for the job, having won not one, but two Academy Awards for Brad Pitt romance Legends of the Fall in 1995, and then for Mel Gibson historical epic Braveheart the following year.

Motion Picture Academy Set To Elect New President, With AMPAS Officers Lois Burwell And David Rubin Expected To Face Off

  • Deadline
The Board of Governors for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will meet on Tuesday evening to elect a new president. Current president John Bailey is terming out after two years in the top position. Presidents can be elected to four one-year terms, but if they have been on the board for a total of nine years, they are termed out and have to take a year off before running again. That is why Bailey could only serve for two years.

In terms of the race to succeed him, sources tell me the top candidates number only two at this point — at least those who have indicated they plan to run. Both are current officers of the Academy as well. Casting director David Rubin is a governor of the Casting Branch and also secretary on the board. His main opponent is expected to be Lois Burwell, a governor

‘The Souvenir’ Is the Top Specialized Opener as Business Remains Soft

‘The Souvenir’ Is the Top Specialized Opener as Business Remains Soft
As the Cannes Film Festival presents prospects for the next year of specialized releases, distributors at home are praying for better fortunes ahead: For titles in their third week or beyond, the best gross is under $250,000 for “The White Crow.” Ongoing releases traditionally form the bulk of art-house business, and that’s likely the lowest-ever best gross for a film in its third week.

Within this context, a decent opening — $20,000 in four top theaters — for Joanna Hogg’s highly praised “The Souvenir” is positive news. It’s good enough to serve as the basis for much wider play, but doesn’t suggest a strong prognosis for the business.

Meanwhile, documentaries continue to provide specialized releasing whatever good news there is: “The Biggest Little Farm” showed continued growth in its second weekend.

The Souvenir (A24) – Metacritic: 94; Festivals include: Sundance, Berlin 2019

Film Review: ‘Trial by Fire’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Trial by Fire’
Cameron Todd Willingham burned his three daughters alive, at least according to the state of Texas, which sentenced him to death in 1992. In the decades since, Willingham’s trial has been relitigated in the court of public opinion by the New Yorker, whose evisceration of testimony by arson experts gives “Trial by Fire” its title. The case has also become a cause célèbre for justice advocates sifting through convictions to find a case where the American government executed an innocent man — Willingham was put to death in 2004 — a travesty they would take all the way to the Supreme Court.

Edward Zwick’s take on the tragedy is a linear biopic, a film more comfortable with time stamps than in burning down the judicial system. “Trial by Fire” opens two days before Christmas in Corsicana, Texas, as 23-year-old Willingham (Jack O’Connell) flees his flaming house, barefoot, shirtless and screaming for

'Legends of the Fall': THR's 1994 Review

On Jan. 13, 1995, Tristar's 133-minute, R-rated epic Legends of the Fall hit theaters. The film went on to nab three Oscar nominations at the 67th Academy Awards ceremony, winning one for cinematographer John Toll. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below.

We discover that sensible people retreated to the Northwest long before these mad times in this sweeping, family epic about the Ludlow clan who ranched in Montana in the early part of this century. 

Heightened with a richly panoramic musical score and widened by some jaw-dropping lensing, Legends of the Fall should score some modestly respectable ...
