This wasn’t the only submission that compared the win-at-all-costs Astros to Trump, and as the editor who decides what letters get published I’m always on the lookout for unconventional but not beyond-the-pale opinions on familiar topics. To me, the letter was fair game for print. … [Read more...] about Opinion: It’s insane to link Trump to the Astros cheating scandal, readers say
The French producer said Tresor, which is best known for modern French dramas and comedies exploring societal issues and relationships such as Lellouche’s “Sink or Swim” and Canet’s “Little White Lies,” said his company was increasingly looking to get out of its comfort zone and venture along unbeaten paths. He cited the $20 million submarine thriller “The Wolf’s Call” by Antonin Baudry, and Regis Roinsard’s whodunnit hacking-themed thriller “The Translators,” which will be the first film released in France by Tresor Films on Jan. 29. … [Read more...] about Tresor Films Plots $72 Million ‘Asterix & Obelix: The Silk Road,’ New Projects (EXCLUSIVE)
