Steven Soderbergh’s horror film shot on an iPhone gets two new images

2018 is shaping up to be yet another creatively ambitious year in the career of Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh. His show Mosaic, which initially debuted in November as an iOS application that allowed users to choose their own adventure/perspective in a murder-mystery story, will premiere on HBO tonight, while another innovative project of Soderbergh’s, Unsane, has just received two new stills.

The images, courtesy of the press site for the Berlin International Film Festival (where the film will premiere next month), give audiences their first look at the upcoming Claire Foy-starring psychological horror-thriller, which is especially noteworthy due to Soderbergh’s decision to shoot the entire motion picture on an iPhone over the course of only one week. Check out a worried, possibly unhinged Foy below…

Details on the project are being kept under wraps, but the basic premise follows a woman (Foy) who is forced to face

Is Paul Bettany The Crown's New Prince Philip?
There's a new prince on the block. According to reports, Paul Bettany will replace Matt Smith as Prince Philip in season three of The Crown. Yep, Vision replaces the Doctor. Netflix did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The next season, which has yet to begin production, will jump forward in time, aging up the characters. Gone are Smith, Claire Foy and Vanessa Kirby. In their places are Bettany (probably), Olivia Colman and Helena Bonham Carter. Colman's casting as Queen Elizabeth II was confirmed early on. The Golden Globe winner said this to BBC about replacing Foy: "I think Claire Foy is an absolute genius--she's an incredibly hard act to follow. I'm basically going to...

Final Oscar predictions and SAG results

Folks, it all comes down to this. The time for talk is over. The Academy Award nominations will be announced tomorrow morning. Over the weekend, two of the most important precursors chimed in, albeit with Oscar voting already closed. The Producers Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild gave us some potential information, though more perhaps having to do with our ultimate winners. The guilds have made a case for certain films, while others are hoping that Academy voters through them a bone in less than 24 hours. Oscar is about to have their say. As such, don’t expect any major changes since last week. What’s done is done. Now, we wait… Below you will see my final Academy Award predictions. Yes, it’s last call.

2018 SAG Awards reactions: Forum posters cheer for Allison Janney & Nicole Kidman wins, jeer Elisabeth Moss loss

2018 SAG Awards reactions: Forum posters cheer for Allison Janney & Nicole Kidman wins, jeer Elisabeth Moss loss
Ladies and gentlemen, we have Oscar frontrunners. As the Screen Actors Guild Awards unfolded at the Shrine Auditorium in downtown Los Angeles, our forum posters let rip with their cheers and jeers. There were few surprises on the film side, with “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” taking the top prize for its ensemble and Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”), Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards”), Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards”), and Allison Janney (“I, Tonya”) winning their respective acting prizes, all of which were predicted by Gold Derby.

However, there were several jaw-droppers in the TV categories, including “This Is Us” and “Veep” winning drama and comedy ensemble awards over predicted frontrunners “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Glow.” Comedy actor William H. Macy upset Sean Hayes (“Will & Grace”) to win his third award in four years for “Shameless.” And the Queen herself, Claire Foy, took her second consecutive prize in the race for drama actresses for “The Crown,

SAG Awards: Actors Fall Hard for ‘Three Billboards’ but the Oscar Race Is Far From Over

SAG Awards: Actors Fall Hard for ‘Three Billboards’ but the Oscar Race Is Far From Over
The 24th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards would appear to have clearly delineated this year’s acting Oscar frontrunners. Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”), Allison Janney (“I, Tonya”), Frances McDormand, and Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) all doubled down Sunday night following recent wins at the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards.

In the supporting categories, it’s been an about-face from the critics’ circuit, where Willem Dafoe (“The Florida Project”) and Laurie Metcalf (“Lady Bird”) have far outpaced Rockwell and Janney. Oldman has remained the lead actor heavyweight throughout, while McDormand has been neck-and-neck with “The Shape of Water” star Sally Hawkins.

But bear in mind we don’t even have Oscar nominations yet. In fact, the SAG Awards almost never precede the Academy’s announcement. The point is, there’s a very long phase two still ahead, two weeks longer than usual due to the Winter Olympics. A lot can happen.

SAG Awards: Biggest Snubs and Surprises

SAG Awards: Biggest Snubs and Surprises
The Screen Actors Guild usually proves themselves to be creatures of habit: They reward the same stars, year in and year out — following their own patterns rather than setting any new trends.

But the night wasn’t completely by the books. Here’s a look at some of the award show’s biggest curveballs:

Surprise: “This Is Us” (NBC)

Admittedly, this race was a tough one to call: Good arguments could have been made for any of the nominees. But “Stranger Things” was a surprise win last year, and the SAG did it again, crowning the NBC tearjerker. The last time a broadcast series took home the trophy was in 2006 for ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.”

Snub: “Stranger Things” (Netflix)

Speaking of “Stranger Things,” the Netflix series went 0-for-4 tonight. Nothing for David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, the stunt team, or the cast — depriving viewers of yet another rousing speech from Harbour and Winona Ryder’s facial
