’24 Hours To Live’ Trailer: Ethan Hawke Flick Is Like ‘John Wick’ Meets ‘Flatliners’ Meets ‘Jason Bourne’

37 minutes ago

Sometimes all you need in Hollywood is an idea that executives don’t have to think too hard about. So when screenwriters Zach Dean, Jim McClain, and Ron Mita sent “24 Hours To Live” around town, they must’ve rattled off “John Wick,” “Flatliners,” “Jason Bourne,” “In Time,” and “Edge Of Tomorrow” as similar movies, because this trailer sure plays like an unholy mix of all of those.

Official Title For Han Solo Spinoff Revealed

2 hours ago

Filming has wrapped on the fraught production of Lucasfilm‘s Han Solo spinoff movie, which saw Phil Lord and Chris Miller packing up their things and leave during shooting. Ron Howard came in, bringing a veteran, reassuring hand behind the camera, and a pleasant and engaging social media presence. Now, he’s heading into post-production with one more message.

The director hit Twitter today and revealed the official title of the movie, which is the fairly bland, “Solo: A Star Wars Story“:

Hey #Twitterville we just wrapped production so here's a special message #StarWars pic.twitter.com/8QJqN5BGxr

It’s simple, effective, dull, and certain to start many memes (or as safesolvent suggested “Yolo: A Star Wars Story,” amirite?).

Hollywood’s problem with sexual harassment and assault isn’t going away just because Harvey Weinstein has been exiled from the industry. “Everybody-fucking-knew” screenwriter Scott Rosenberg asserts, and despite how much knowledge people had of the extent of Weinstein’s behavior, the power structures have been in place to allow it to continue for decades. However, this isn’t just a problem at the upper rungs of Hollywood, but throughout, and two actresses have shared their experiences of being sexually harassed and assaulted.

Björk Further Details “Paralysing” Sexual Harassment By Lars von Trier

3 hours ago

While Lars von Trier hasn’t been directly named by Bjork as the Danish director she says sexually harassed her, it’s not a reach to connect the dots. The musician has only starred in a small handful of films, and “Dancer In The Dark” was her most high profile turn, and most notorious. The stories of her battles with the director on the set spread like wildfire, but they largely painted Bjork as a mercurial or unstable actress.

4 hours ago

It’s time to add a new word to your lexicon. We all know about binge-watching, but binge-racing — as defined by the wordsmiths at Netflix — is watching the entire season of a show within 24 hours. According to the streaming service, 8.4 million subscribers are into that habit, and they’ve released the list the top twenty shows that get consumed in the span of a single day.

‘Beautiful Girls’ Screenwriter Scott Rosenberg On Harvey Weinstein: “Everybody-f**king-Knew”

4 hours ago

One the questions surrounding the ongoing Harvey Weinstein scandal is how much those around him knew and were complicit in his behavior. There general reaction by those inside and outside his companies — Miramax and The Weinstein Company — has been that they didn’t know the extent of Weinstein’s abuses and assaults, but one screenwriter is suggesting that everyone knew what was going on.

Scott Rosenberg, who penned the Miramax pictures “Things To Do In Denver When You’re Dead” and “Beautiful Girls” wrote about his time with Weinstein during the producer and mogul’s ’90s heyday in a since removed (at least from public view) Facebook post.

5 hours ago

Whether or not Deckard is a replicant lies at the heart of “Blade Runner” and its evolving themes of artificial intelligence and free will. However, it’s also been one of the most debated elements around the original film for decades. “Blade Runner 2049” doesn’t quite come out and answer the question, but according to Ridley Scott, the entire story doesn’t work if Deckard is human.

On the Empire podcast, the director of the original and executive producer of the sequel explains how before shooting on ‘2049,’ he met with Harrison Ford to clear one thing up.

‘The Alienist’ Trailer: New Series Plays Like 1800s ‘Mindhunter’

16 October 2017 10:53 AM, PDT

With David Fincher‘s “Mindhunter” setting a tremendously high bar for procedurals that delve into the inscrutable minds of psychopathic killers, you might feel a little bit sorry for “The Alienist.” TNT‘s high profile series covers similar terrain – albeit about eight decades earlier – but the source material is great, the casting is solid, and it could turn out to have its own unique look at the minds of depraved criminals.

The latter is a filmmaker who studies characters obsessed with process, shoots with precision, and places an emphasis on realism. However, both filmmakers are immaculate craftsmen, which makes this next bit of news tremendously exciting.
