Samba
A few years back, all anyone could talk about at the arthouse was "The Intouchables." It was the third most watched film in France in 2011, sitting at number one at the box office there for ten weeks. And not only was it a hit in its home country, but it traveled abroad widely, earning a grand total of $444.7 million worldwide and scooping up awards, while The Weinstein Company snapped up the remake rights. And now writer/directors Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano are back with a followup.

By now, we all pretty much know about the struggles the filmmakers had while making “World War Z.” In spite of the fact that the film actually turned out to be a major success, initial reports of its “inevitable failure” hit everyone involved with the film pretty hard. The Hollywood Reporter has a very interesting piece about Brad Pitt’s production company, Plan B (who made the film). The article goes into how criticism of the production of "World War Z" affected the producers involved, mentally, and they delve into how the surprise success of the film, along with the positive festival response of “12 Years a Slave” has left the company feeling pretty good about themselves.
