Backup Enlists New Partner; Jean-Baptiste Babin to Leave Company (Exclusive)
Backup Media Group has upped current COO Guillaume Lirondiere to become a partner in the Paris-based company, along with co-founders David Atlan-Jackson and Joel Thibout.

Jean-Baptiste Babin, one of Backup Media Group’s founding partners, will be stepping down from his operational role at the company by the end of the year to take another high-profile industry job.

Babin recently executive-produced Wim Wenders’ “Submergence” with Alicia Vikander and James McAvoy, and “Brimstone” with Dakota Fanning. He will soon announce his next career move.

“I am so proud of what we have achieved over the past 15 years, and I’m convinced Backup’s slate will carry on shining with ambitious films which hit the market strong,” said Babin.

“I have no doubt [Lirondiere] has the skills, experience and talent to fully take over productions for backup,” Babin said,

Movie Review – Brimstone (2017)

Brimstone, 2017.

Directed by Martin Koolhoven.

Starring Dakota Fanning, Guy Pearce, Carice Van Houten and Kit Harrington.

Synopsis:

A frontier woman turns fugitive when she is wrongly accused of a crime she didn’t commit and is hunted by a vengeful preacher.

An ingenious conglomeration of narrative complexity, Koolhoven’s audacious film Brimstone is tense, authentic and absolutely brutal. A lot can be said about Brimstone; its narrative arrangement emphasises both the audience and the protagonists’ necessity for retribution, the striking visuals of the Western landscape captivate your attention and the acting relentlessly wrestles with your emotions. The dialogue is well written and emotionally engaging, similar to that of Tarantino, despite falling flat in some areas that were clearly postured to highlight the humour in the absurdity of some Western clichés’. The film seems to monitor its own narrative pacing, choosing to reveal the horrific history between the two opposing characters,

Five Things You Didn’t Know about Carice Van Houten

She definitely looks different from her role as the Red Lady in Game of Thrones, but van Houten is still a lovely woman inside and out according to those that have worked with her. The kind of talent she presents is something akin to that of a chameleon in that she is easily able to acclimate to any role she receives and makes it breathe all on its own as she steps into the character without fault. As many GoT fans already know she can be quite vicious in a quiet, unassuming way that invites doubt into a person’s heart

Exclusive Interview: Director Martin Koolhoven Talks ‘Brimstone’

Dakota Fanning is an actor that we haven’t seen a great deal from in recent years. She started her career at a very young age, and for years was the go-to child if you needed a young cast member. As she’s gotten older she seems to have become a little more picky when it comes to projects that she wants to be a part of, and usually means that if she’s in it, the project is a good one. This is certainly true of her latest movie Brimstone.

The film also stars Guy Pearce, Kit Harrington, and Carice van Houten, and tells the disturbing tale of Fanning’s character Elizabeth’s life. Brimstone is a delightfully dark story told within the world of a Western. It jumps around the timeline in a way that makes the story really dynamic, and at its core is held together by a superb,

‘Game of Thrones’: Gendry Is Back! Here’s the Most Insane Theory Explaining Why He Returned

‘Game of Thrones’: Gendry Is Back! Here’s the Most Insane Theory Explaining Why He Returned
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Game of Thrones” Season 7, Episode 5, “Eastwatch.”]

On Sunday night, at long last “Game of Thrones” saw fit to bring back everyone’s favorite blacksmith, Gendry (Joe Dempsie).

It turns out that the bastard has been hiding out in Flea Bottom, one of the poorer districts of King’s Landing, working in a small forge. The last time Gendry was on screen was four seasons ago when he escaped from Dragonstone in a rowboat provided by Ser Davos (Liam Cunningham). Hence, the joke Davos told upon arrival, ”Wasn’t sure I’d find you here. Thought you still might be rowing.”

Gendry’s History

In Season 1, Gendry’s status as the bastard son of King Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) meant that he had to flee King’s Landing once Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) ascended the throne and decided to have all of Robert’s bastards killed. Among the group of people he’s traveling with to join the Night’s Watch,
