It's really great, for Paris and for the french cinema too. We needed a huge complex like this.

Inauguration for the Cannes Film Festival.

Yes with (or course) the projet of the US studios Raleigh in Toulouse (second in size in Europe), France is definitively the leader of European cinema industry.

Great news for the French film industry, but this is a very bold statement... and one that I don't particularly agree with.

Pinewood studios? Where they shot plenty of american movies, or pseudo-British ones like James Bond movies.

But Indy G's statement was about the French Movie industry being leader in Europe, not about who has the biggest studios.

I dont know anything about cinema so I cant really offer an opinion, would be interesting to see some statistics though.

Yep, it's difficult to find this kind of statistics. There are plenty of big US/UK coproductions shot in UK, but they are all mainly produced by big american studios (MGM, Universal, Paramount, etc...). Who would consider "The Dark Knight" or "X-Men" 100% British movies for instance?

On the other hand, Europa Corp is a 100% French film company, probably the biggest european one, but producing mainly (crappy) hollywood style movies in foreign countries...

Most talented British movie-makers need to move to the US for recognition though, and there's a huge amount of them among the best directors (Nolan, the Scott brothers, Boyle, etc...).

That's a real picture! So is the one below:






This building called 'Liaison AC' was opened on 28 March but was inaugurated on 11 april 2012. It's gorgeous, isn't it?

In Europe, according to this site, the biggest studios are not in UK (or France) but in Budapest :

Quote:
Raleigh studios est le plus important opérateur de studio indépendant des États-Unis où il compte déjà six studios. Il devrait s'implanter sur 45 hectares de bâtiments au sein de la base militaire désaffectée depuis 2010. Le studio de Toulouse serait donc le deuxième studio Européen après celui de Budapest en Hongrie.

There is a very clear definition of what constitutes a British movie, if the makers claim UK Tax relief, which means a certain percentage of the films budget is spent on UK based talent, it's a British movie.

The problem are French film industry snobs, who refuse to differentiate between the UK and US film industry, simply because of the language factor.

I actually read an article about the Toulouse studios a couple of days ago. Great news for the city and good thing that it has the government's backing. It will help the city diversify its economy

Okay so according to what I've just read about the building, it offers all the things which were lacking at CDG airport:
  • better organized border control on the first level (easier and faster)
  • a brand new duty free mall mainly dedicated to luxury products on the second level
  • brand new business class lounges for foreign companies on the third level

That's great news. CDG is really moving forward. Now they need to do the same for 2B and 2D terminals + a reshape of T1. I think the bad reputation of CDG is mainly due to T1, which is now only a tiny part of the airport (but mostly used by foreigners).

I couldn't find any real pictures of the inside of liaison AC (only renderings).

they surely think about the same link between B & D

In 2009 i used 2D to go to barcelona it was a shame!
No toilets inside the waiting zone.We had to go out the waitnig zone for toilets and after redone the security check in!

You understand easily why we used to have the worst airport in surveys

With 206.5 million tickets sold in 2010 and 215.6 million in 2011, France is the third largest film market in the world in terms of admissions, after the United States and India. It is the most successful film industry in Europe, with a record breaking 261 films produced and released in 2010. France is also one of the few countries where non-American productions have the biggest share: American films only represented 47.7% of total admissions in 2010. This is largely due to the commercial strength of domestic productions, which accounted for 40% of admissions in 2011 (35.7% in 2010; 45.4% in 2008). Also, the French film industry is closer to being entirely self-sufficient than any other country in Europe, recovering around 80-90% of costs from revenues generated in the domestic market alone.
