Winston’s Film “Nine Days” Is Going To The Utah Film Festival

As per Winston’s Tweet, his newest film NINE DAYS is heading to the Utah Film Festival. Congratulations Winston. Looking forward to seeing this film.

Utah provides desolate backdrops for two movies at Sundance 2020

Writer-director Edson Oda’s movie, “Nine Days,” he said, “happens in this reality that’s different from ours.”

So, naturally, Oda chose the Bonneville Salt Flats to film.

“The salt flats give you the sense that you’re not really on Earth, but you’re somewhere else,” Oda said Wednesday, the day the Sundance Institute announced that “Nine Days” would be one of 118 movies to screen at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.

“Nine Days,” which will screen in the prestigious U.S. Dramatic competition, is one of two movies filmed in Utah to be picked for the festival, which runs Jan. 23 to Feb. 2 in Park City and venues in Salt Lake City and the Sundance resort.

The other — “The Killing of Two Lovers,” a domestic drama written and directed by Brigham Young University associate professor Robert Machoian — will screen in the festival’s Next program, dedicated to lower-budget and more offbeat films.

Both Oda and Machoian got the call from Sundance’s programming team just before Thanksgiving — a long-standing tradition for the festival, which showcases the best of American independent film along with a slate of international movies.

“I wasn’t expecting the call,” said Oda, who was born in Brazil to Japanese parents and educated at the University of Southern California. “They said it was so unique and so original.”

“It’s a very offbeat story, an alternate reality, a purgatory of sorts,” said John Cooper, the festival’s director. Cooper then joked, “When I think of purgatory, I think of Utah — there’s your quote.”

Machoian, who teaches photography in BYU’s design school, was just back from Denmark, where he was working on his film’s sound mix. “My parents picked me up from the airport, and on the drive back, they called,” Machoian said. “They were very complimentary. They said it was something they hadn’t seen before.”

Kim Yutani, the festival’s program director, called Machoian “an exciting filmmaker. … He’s a filmmaker who always uses his own kids. They have a special quality. They’ve grown up being in their dad’s movies.” Yutani called it “a gritty film,” and praised “the performances, and the intimacy he captures in the film.”

Oda’s film, “Nine Days,” centers on an interviewer — played by Winston Duke, who played the dad in Jordan Peele’s thriller “Us” — who talks to souls, who are embodied by such actors as Zazie Beets (“Joker”), Bill Skarsgård (“It”) and Benedict Wong (“Doctor Strange”). “He has to choose one to be born,” Oda said.

Though the premise is ethereal, he said, “the movie is very grounded. The souls, they look like regular people like us. We already have a hint of their personality.”

Machoian’s movie, “The Killing of Two Lovers,” focuses on a couple whose marriage is falling apart. The husband, played by Clayne Crawford, tries to keep himself together for the sake of their children — played by Machoian’s own kids — but has trouble accepting that his wife (Sepideh Moafi) has begun a relationship with another man (Chris Coy).

“These are two people who make this commitment to each other when they’re very young,” Machoian said. “You grow as a person. In ways, you grow together, and you grow not together. … I put it all into this one couple.”

“Us” Stills & Posters

Here are the posters and stills for Winston’s film US. This was a major mind-fuck considering the tag at the end to do with Abbie (Lupita Nyong’o). I’ll have the actual screencaps later. Considering that Winston is one of the leads and the amount of screen time he had, it’s going to take some time to get those done.

“Avengers: Endgame” Continues To Gain At The Box Office

Despite being released on home video and being out of cinemas domestically for a couple of months, AVENGERS: ENDGAME continues to gain at the foreign box office. Forbes reported the film continues to gain on James Cameron’s Avatar.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Has Been Quietly Extending Its Box Office Record For Weeks

There’s beauty to be found in every movie.

FORBES – It’s been more than a month since Avengers: Endgame accomplished the seemingly impossible by overcoming Avatar’s worldwide box office record. At the time, Endgame’s domestic theater count had dropped below 1,000, The Lion King was hitting theaters and another Marvel film had been occupying the film for weeks. By all accounts, the Endgame run was considered near its end.

But it wasn’t—and it still isn’t.

It’s not much, but Endgame added another $50,268 to its domestic total this past weekend $68,313 to its foreign earnings. Last week the film accrued an additional $500,000 or so, and the week before close to another $1 million. While that’s chump change compared to the film’s $2.796 billion lifetime earnings, it has allowed the current reigning champ to further its lead over Avatar—which will be key, as Avatar will likely hit theaters again ahead of the sequel’s release.

Currently, Avatar’s lifetime gross stands at $2.789 billion. That means that Avengers: Endgame has added on another $7 million to its total since breaking the record. Again, while that might not seem like much, any sort of padding is good for the latest Avengers film as its worldwide presence diminishes.

And Endgame’s run still isn’t over. Avengers: Infinity War remained in U.S. theaters for 20 weeks, and Endgame is still in its 18th week. Infinity War continued to pull in over nearly $100,000 weekly near the end of its run, similar to Endgame.

The real money will come internationally, however. While Infinity War’s domestic run ended on Sept. 13, 2018, its showing in foreign markets continued into 2019. While earnings were minimal, we can expect a similar trajectory from Endgame, which will likely continue to earn money through January or February.

By then? Who knows how far Endgame will have pulled ahead of Avatar. It may not be a huge lead, but Endgame is hoping it’ll be enough to hold off an Avatar re-release.

“Avengers: Endgame” Screencaps & Peripherals

After the success of AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR in which half of all life in the universe was “dusted” by Thanos (Josh Brolin) snap, AVENGERS: ENDGAME became the largest grossing film of all time in wrapping up twenty two films comprising the Infinity Saga. Winston was in it briefly in the final battle with Thanos and his army that brought back all but two of the Avengers. His scene was pretty relegated to being an extra and it was difficult to get many good screencaps of him soloed quite the way I was able to with AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR. What I could get though are up in the gallery. As with my two prior posts I’m still working on some additions to that section in the gallery. Stay tuned. Click on the images to get to the relevant images.

“Avengers: Infinity War” Screencaps & Peripherals

Following up on BLACK PANTHER’S huge success, Marvel brought us the ultimate team up in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR where Winston reprised his role of M’Baku. This time he helped T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) and the Dora Milaje help Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlet Johansson), The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), War Machine (Don Cheadle), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olson), Vision (Paul Bettany) and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) fight against the ultimate villain in Thanos (Josh Brolin) and the members of his Black Order. After obtaining the Infinity Stones, Thanos brings his fight to Earth, most specifically Wakanda where M’Baku and the Jabari join their king in battling against that unstoppable force. Like BLACK PANTHER I have other things to add, but I’m still in the process of editing them. Stand by. Click on the images below to get to the relevant section in the gallery.

“Black Panther” Screencaps & Peripherals

Winston had his breakout performance in Marvel’s BLACK PANTHER where he played the Jabari Prince M’Baku. To a degree Winston stole this film from stars Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan. Hard thing to do considering both actors are amazing in their roles. I have some other things to post from the film, but I have more editing to do on them. They’ll be posted when I get them done. Remember there are some videos uploaded to the Media section, so please do check those out. Click on the images below to go to the gallery section.

Winston Duke :: All Event Images Added

I decided to do an omnibus regarding Winston’s event images. It would be hard to make a separate post for everything as there are over one hundred events in the gallery as of this moment. There are several empty albums for 2019. This is due to wanting to make sure the albums are there when those images are finally obtained, and it would be difficult to add them in in order. As for now please feel free to browse all the events Winston has attended from 2015 to current. Click on the image below to go to the gallery.
