‘Justice League’ Cinematographer Says “I Really Hope We Get To See A Director’s Cut”

4 hours ago

“A lot of things got cut,” Jason Momoa said succinctly about the version of “Justice League” that’s currently in cinemas. Indeed, it’s easy to see that the superhero team-up movie — overhauled and reshot as it was — was a patchwork affair of two different visions. Fans are already petitioning for Zack Snyder‘s director’s cut (which technically doesn’t exist, since he never finished the movie) to be released, and now they have someone who worked on the film in the corner.

John Lasseter Steps Down From Pixar After Allegations Of Sexual Harassment

5 hours ago

#MeToo continues to be heard loud and clear throughout Hollywood. Men in all corners of the industry are being held accountable for their behavior and facing the consequences for harassment and assault that for too long has been ignored. Now, one of the mightiest studios in town may have a major executive in a potential crisis.

THR reports that Pixar‘s John Lasseter is taking a leave of absence for “missteps” that he acknowledges left staff feeling “disrespected or uncomfortable.” According to the trade, the allegations that are surfacing include Lasseter “grabbing, kissing, making comments about physical attributes” with women, to the extent that employees created a move known as “the Lasseter” to avoid having him touch their legs.

‘The Terminator’ Reboot Gives The Wheel To ‘Captain Phillips’ Writer Billy Ray

5 hours ago

Just when we thought the “The Terminator” franchise was all but dead, James Cameron announced his unexpected return for a new trilogy.

The last two films, “Terminator: Salvation” and “Terminator: Genisys,” were soul-crushing. After those debacles, the only way many fans would hop back onboard would be if James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Linda Hamilton all decided to return.

2018 Independent Spirit Awards Nominations: Snubs & Surprises

5 hours ago

The 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards nominations were unveiled today, and as it always goes, there were some surprises and snubs. However, before I get too far along, here’s quick reminder about one of the official eligibility requirements for the competing movies. It will be useful information for one of the biggest snubs that people are talking about:

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ TV Spots: Rey Resists The Dark Side

6 hours ago

The countdown to “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is on, and Disney isn’t going to let a day pass over the next couple weeks, without reminding you the film is coming. That means if you’re a couch potato this Thanksgiving weekend, you’re probably going to be blitzed with TV spots. Or you can feel free to use the bathroom between football plays and watch them now.

Of course, there are no actual story details being revealed here, except in the broadest possible strokes.

Paul Feig On ‘Ghostbusters’: “It Was A Great Regret In My Life That The Movie Didn’t Do Better”

7 hours ago

When the announcement hit that Paul Feig remake was going to helm a “Ghostbusters” reboot and that the all-male cast of the original was going to be replaced by an all-female ensemble, the internet freaked. On one side of the aisle was definite praise for a step forward in Hollywood’s neverending battle with gender equality, but on the other side of the spectrum there was the massive backlash from fans of the original.

‘Crooked House’ Clip: Glenn Close Asks What Are Murderers Like? [Exclusive]

8 hours ago

The world’s most famous mystery writer, Agatha Christie, is back in the spotlight in a big way. The success of “Murder On The Orient Express” has sparked development on a follow-up, with the adaptation of “Death On The Nile” now in the works. However, that movie may be a bit of a way off, so if you need another fix of murderous thrills, it’s time to put “Crooked House” on your radar.

‘Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool’ Trailer: Love Blooms Between Annette Bening & Jamie Bell

9 hours ago

There are a lot of movies trying to elbow into the awards race, and Sony Pictures Classics is hoping voters will remember “Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool.” While it doesn’t have the same buzz as the studio’s other major contender — “Call Me By Your Name” — it does have a big, secret weapon: the legendary Annette Bening.

The actress leads the movie as Hollywood star Gloria Grahame, in this based on a true story tale about the actresses’ late life relationship and romance with a much younger lover.

Talking The Good & The Bad In ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ [Adjust Your Tracking Podcast]

9 hours ago

Sometimes a filmmaker just misses the forest for the trees…

On this episode of Adjust Your Tracking, Joe and I start things off by riffing on problematic filmmakers, especially in the light of the now-it’s-official Louis C.K. sexual harassment allegations, and his subsequent admission to the wrongdoing. I had a chance to see his latest, now-forever-buried “I Love You, Daddy,” and it ain’t pretty.

Jason Momoa Talks ‘Justice League’: “A Lot Of Things Got Cut”

9 hours ago

If you haven’t seen “Justice League” yet, and decide to go, you could make a game counting where scenes were cut to fit the mandated two-hour running time. It’s clear that the movie went through a considerable overhaul before it landed in cinemas, resulting a superhero movie with no character arcs and little context for what is happening on screen. That said, we do spend some decent time with Aquaman in his underwater world, but Jason Momoa says there was even more that just didn’t make it in.

Terry Gilliam Says ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ Is “Surprisingly Wonderful”

10 hours ago

There’s nothing better than a good redemption story, and we’re rooting for Terry Gilliam to finally let go of the cross he’s had to bear with “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.” We won’t rehash the tortured history of the movie, but after years of disaster, curses, bad luck, and awful timing, he’s finally made the movie. The picture is in post-production with work still be done, but Gilliam has already started screening the movie for those in his circle, and response has been positive.

‘Orient Express’ Sequel ‘Death On The Nile’ In The Works

11 hours ago

Your aunts and grandmas were right all along, Agatha Christie is cool. Actually, a couple The Playlist staffers are also secret/not-so-secret fans of the famed mystery writer. At any rate, she’s enjoying a renaissance thanks to “Murder On The Orient Express,” which has quietly circled the globe to the tune of $148 million and counting. Nope, it’s not superhero numbers, but evidently, 20th Century Fox has deemed the figure for the $55 million movie good enough to start working on a sequel.

‘Justice League’ Could Lose $50-100 Million For Warner Bros.

11 hours ago

The picture is looking pretty bleak for “Justice League.” Yesterday, the final weekend box office numbers came in, and they were even lower than projected, with the superhero team-up movie earning $94 million domestic over the weekend. It’s the lowest grossing debut of any DC Films effort to date, and for comparison sake, Marvel‘s “The Avengers” launched with  $207 million in 2012.

Armie Hammer Is Already A Winner On The ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Tour [Interview]

20 November 2017 2:21 PM, PST

Armie Hammer is searching the eighth floor of the Beverly Wilshire hotel looking for his publicist.  He’s wearing a sharp pseudo-Hawaiian inspired print shirt that screams Ted Baker (even if it isn’t) with a sleek cut cut blue blazer and pants.  Following our interview I’d told him the shirt was great while omitting the fact I have a thing for flowered print t-shirts. His publicist, on the other hand, thinks Hammer’s ensemble is a mistake.

Damon Lindelof Talks ‘Watchmen’ & Why “What We Think About Superheroes Is Wrong”

20 November 2017 1:29 PM, PST

Credit to Damon Lindelof, he’s not afraid to take a risk. Everyone still argues about the merits (or lack thereof) when it comes to “Lost,” and the writer put his pen to the very contentious “Prometheus.” Still, that didn’t stop him from tackling “The Leftovers,” which finished its three season run this year in such spectacular fashion, and is already going down as one of the all time, small screen greats.

Lizzy Caplan Joins ‘Gambit’ With Channing Tatum

20 November 2017 12:55 PM, PST

Honestly, with so many delays and directors bouncing in and out, we figured “Gambit” was one of those superhero projects that would be talked to death, but never get made. Guess we’re wrong. The solo movie is casting up and the forever attached Channing Tatum now has a co-star.

Lizzy Caplan (“Masters Of Sex,” “Ill Behaviour,” “Now You See Me 2“) has signed up for the female lead role.
