Jolie Hopes Her Film Draws Notice to Syria
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Angelina Jolie says she hopes her directorial debut, “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” can serve as a “wakeup call” for the international community to pay more attention to atrocities and act in time to prevent them — including in Syria.

Jolie arrived in Sarajevo with partner Brad Pitt to attend the premiere of her film, which already has been released in the U.S.

The film tells the fictional tale of a romance between a Bosnian Serb man and a Bosnian Muslim woman, and what happens when he becomes an army officer and she is held in a military prison camp where rape occurs.

Jolie says the movie was “heavy” but that she was happy with it because it shows what horrors can occur in the absence of a timely intervention.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina — Angelina Jolie’s new movie — a love story set against the genocide of Bosnia’s war — will be shown in Sarajevo for the first time on Tuesday, but it already has touched off anger left over from the conflict.

Muslim Bosniaks have said they expect “In the Land of Blood and Honey” to focus on their plight during the brutal 1992-1995 war. But the distributor in the Serb part of Bosnia said he won’t show it there because it portrays Serbs as the villains and they wouldn’t put up with that.

The screening — which Jolie plans to attend — will show a fictional movie about a romance that develops between a Bosnian Serb man and a Bosnian Muslim woman, and what happens when he becomes an army officer and she is held in a military prison camp where atrocities such as rape occur.

About 5,000 people are expected at the debut in Sarajevo, and the movie also will be shown in theaters in the Bosniak-Croat part of the country.

But the sole film distributor in the Serb-run part of Bosnia said Serbs don’t want to see it.

For that reason, Vladimir Ljevar told The Associated Press, “In the Land of Blood and Honey” will not be shown in Bosnian Serb movie theaters.

“There is simply no interest for this movie here, so I can’t sell any tickets,” he said. “The fact that the Serbs are the bad guys in it is the reason why there is no interest. The film is lousy. I watched it. It has had bad reviews. It is unprofitable.”

Thousands of women were raped during Bosnia’s war, which also included the notorious Srebrenica massacre in July 1995 and the 44-month siege of the capital, Sarajevo. Most of the rape victims were Muslim Bosniak women, often the target of mass rape used as a weapon of terror.

Many of the victims were raped repeatedly. Some were brought back to their homes and dumped in front of their husbands. Other women were violated in their husbands’ presence as part of a shock campaign.

So a group of Muslim Bosniaks who now have returned to their homes in the Serb part of the country say they are interested in seeing Jolie’s movie and plan to organize private screenings once they make a deal with some other distributor from the region.

Zinaida Mahmuljin of the northwestern town of Kozarac said people there are willing to pay for the screening equipment and show it in the local town’s community center.

“There is interest here among the returnees,” she said, denying Ljevar’s claims about the movie. “What are we here? Thin air?”

Together with others in Kozarac, Mahmuljin plans to screen the movie next week.

More than 27,000 people lived there before the war, but the population is now down to about 8,000, she said. The notorious Serb prison camps Omarska and Keraterm are not far from Kozarac, and many townspeople were prisoners there during the war, she said.

Murder, torture, rape and other abuses were common at the two camps during the Balkan wars of the 1990s, and the U.N. War Crimes Tribunal in the Hague has convicted several Bosnian Serbs of persecution and cruel treatment of Muslim Bosniaks.

So many people died in those camps that it is hard to find any Muslim family in Kozarac that did not lose someone there, Mahmuljin said. Her father was killed in Omarska and her mother survived torture there.

“But we need to move forward, and we won’t do that if we don’t talk about what happened,” she said.

“During the Second World War, Serbs of this area were the victims and that was swept under the carpet,” she said referring to the many Serbs who died in the Jasenovac concentration camp in Croatia,” Mahmuljin said. “In this war, the Bosniaks were the victims. It is time we all sit down and talk about it.”

Brangelina is so in love.

I can’t wait to see this movie…..I read an article, a week or so ago, that it was going to be released in October but I can’t remember where. Basically, the writer of the article was complaining because he was really looking forward to seeing it sooner. I tried to find it but haven’t been successful as of yet.

More Live-Action Fairytales: Angelina Jolie in Sleeping Beauty Movie Maleficent, Saoirse Ronan in Order of the Seven
Posted 02.14.12 by Ryan

Now Disney, which started the trend with 2010′s blockbuster Alice in Wonderland, is developing a life-action version of Sleeping Beauty titled Maleficent and yet another riff on Snow White.

Maleficient will focus on the Disney villainess as the lead character and has had Angelina Jolie attached to play the role since 2009. While Jolie was reportedly set to start work on an untitled thriller with director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, La Femme Nikita, The Professional) in April, it looks like that will have to wait for Maleficient. “I haven’t acted in two years [since 2010's The Tourist], and I haven’t done anything else since this [directorial debut In the Land of Blood and Honey]. The next thing I am looking at is a Disney movie,” Jolie told THR.

Maleficent was written by Linda Woolverton (Alice in Wonderland), and, according to THR’s report, Jolie “adores” her “revisionist take” on the material and the complex relationships between the characters. Jolie also said that she is eager to do a movie for her kids.

The best thing to find that balance is to do something that is just for children. You know, you find different ways to make things matter. When, for example, you do fun action movies, they are empowering for my daughters.

While there was no start date mentioned for Maleficent, it is assumed that it will begin sometime around when Besson’s untitled thriller was scheduled, therefore making it impossible for her to do both. Production designer Robert Stromberg (Alice in Wonderland, Avatar) was hired to direct the movie last month.

This is not the exact article I read on Cogan’s Trade but has much of the same info

http://thefilmstage.com/news/andrew-dominiks-cogans-trade-now-expected-to-hit-theaters-late-2012/

With news too good to be true, we learned almost a year ago to this date that Andrew Dominik‘s follow-up to The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, the heist drama Cogan’s Trade, was picked up by The Weinstein Company for a wide release in the first quarter of 2012. Well, with that timeframe nearly all scheduled for the distributor, it turns out the news was too hopeful. But we do have an update on when are likely to see the drama starring Brad Pitt, Ray Liotta, James Gandolfini, Richard Jenkins, Sam Shepard and more.

Buried in a report from LA Times regarding The Wettest County (another film the company had delayed, specifically due to capitalizing on Tom Hardy‘s fame after The Dark Knight Rises) is the equally sad news that Cogan’s Trade is now expected to arrive in the fourth quarter of the year, along with Quentin Tarantino‘s Django Unchained (on Christmas Day), David O. Russell’s The Silver Linings Playbook (Nov. 21st) and Paul Thomas Anderson‘s The Master (likely the last possible moment a la There Will Be Blood). It is a staggering line-up, each one high on my most-anticipated of the year list.

That report indicates the awards-hungry Weinsteins will debut Wettest County at Venice, with Toronto likely to follow. Although Jesse James followed the same exact path, it resulted in tiny box-office results and nearly nonexistent awards campaign. The film has since gone on to be considered one of the best of the past decade, but compared to the lyrical, wide scope of that film, Cogan‘s plot seems to have more audience-appeal. Based on George V. Higgins‘ novel, which has dark comedy elements and violence, it follows ”a professional enforcer who investigates a heist that went down during a mob-protected poker game.”

There are a number of strategies TWC could take with Trade, whose ensemble cast also includes Garret Dillahunt, Max Casella, Bella Heathcote, Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn and Vincent Curatola.

With Django and The Master hitting right at the very end of the year, with no need for a festival bow I’d assume, they could pull a Drive-like release with Cannes or TIFF/Venice debut, followed by a Sept./Oct. release. We’ll hopefully get news on this one soon and although we have to wait a bit longer, I’m happy the company is putting some faith in it. Now let’s just hope they stay true to their word that it will have a wide release.

Brad looks hot in Cogan’s Trade. I am looking forward to seeing it.

It’s been proven that bad thing happen when you hang w/ nasty ol’ Chelsea H (granny manny, anyone?). How about making a movie w/ Chelsea like Reese W did (MSNBC):

Some films have certain scenes that need to be redone, but on “This Means War” the whole picture should have been sent back for a reshoot. This perfectly dreadful romantic action comedy manages to embarrass.
___
Sounds about right – insipid, dumb, poorly written and poorly executed. Plus Chelsea Handler’s ridiculous presence. Is this really how Reese wants to stay on top? With these kinds of idiotic career moves? Dear Reese: You are an Oscar-winning actress. Stop trying to be Jennifer Aniston.

Cannot wait for Cogan’s Trade. Andrew Dominique and Brad, fantastic team.

eww he looks ugly…u have to admit

Brad and Angie are at ITLBAH premiere in BIH. Both are wearing black.

One of the tabs had a story about top designers, did not want to dress Angie any more because she is too thin.
Then some trolls were saying she was copying Duchess Kate, now Kate wears Jenny P dresses, why would the designer change her line for Angie instead of Kate, it is the bottom line.
Who ever design that black outfit she wore a couple of days ago, had up her picture, Ralph & Russo had up the Grey dress and don’t talk about Micheal Kors, she is up on his site as soon as she steps out in his clothes.

@From Paris:

Angie bid money on an item, then Brad raised his hand and outbid her and it made her laugh. The man asks who’s afraid to challenge Brad and Angelina in bidding, Angelina bids again and the woman says she’s a very strong fighter, then Brad outbids Angie again. LOL

This is the cutest video and very funny.
