12 August 2014 Latest Acquisitions

Gulf Film-distributed The Blue Elephant, Arabic cinema’s latest blockbuster, is set to be released in the UAE on 14 August. Details of the film and the production, which has taken the Egyptian box office by storm, were announced at a press conference and screening last night at Novo Cinemas, attended by the star of the film, Karim Abdel Aziz, the director, leading Arabic filmmaker Marwan Hamed, writer Ahmad Mourad, as well as producer/executive producer Fadi Fahim.

The Blue Elephant, created by leading production company Lighthouse Film and Al Batros Film, is based on a best-selling Arabic novel and was produced and filmed in Egypt. The thriller is the first Arabic film of its genre to be produced in the Middle East, and it was launched in Egypt over Eid. Dubai has been selected as the location of choice for the screening, press conference and first release in the GCC, due to its connectivity and vibrant media industry, affirming its position as a key part of the production value chain.

Jamal Al Sharif, Chairman of Dubai Film and TV Commission and Managing Director of Dubai Studio City, said; “Dubai’s media industry is thriving, and the Emirate is playing an active role in attracting productions from around the world,"Mission Impossible is a great example of a recent international film we were able to support with our world-class infrastructure and technology, and Dubai is becoming a real film and TV ecosystem. Not only is cutting-edge content being produced here, but we are becoming the location of choice for huge regional production companies to promote their films."

CAMPAIGN ROLL-OUT FOR THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY - PART 1

22 July 2014 Movie Information / Production

It’s not a first look at Katniss in an eye-catching outfit, but the new campaign from Panem headquarters certainly turns heads. Along with some visually stunning campaign posters paying homage to each district, filmmakers have released a video of President Snow (Donald Sutherland) addressing his people with a warning: “Ours is an elegant system, conceived to nourish and protect,” says Snow. “Your districts are the body. The Capitol is the beating heart. Your hard work feeds us, and in return, we feed and protect you. But if you resist the system, you starve yourself. If you fight against it, it is you who will bleed.”

After she literally shattered the games forever in Catching Fire, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 will find Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) spreading her wings as she fights to save Peeta and a nation moved by her courage.
