      A ‘Bombshell,’ ‘Parasite’ and Brutality Are Shaking Up the Oscar Race

      A ‘Bombshell,’ ‘Parasite’ and Brutality Are Shaking Up the Oscar Race
      It’s the time of year when the number of potential contenders has dwindled to a precious few, and Oscar watchers tick them off one by one: “The Irishman” at the New York Film Festival in late September, “Little Women” on Oct. 23, “Dark Waters” on Oct. 28, “Richard Jewell” at the AFI Fest in November, “1917” at some indeterminate time after that… This week saw one more box get checked — Jay Roach’s “Bombshell,” the story of the fall of Fox News’ Roger Ailes that shouldn’t be confused with the 2018 documentary “Divide and Conquer” or “The Loudest Voice,” the Showtime miniseries starring Russell Crowe as the influential but disgraced Fox maven. Roach’s version, which screened for the first time on Sunday, first for a SAG audience and then for a mixture of guilds, press and tastemakers at a swanky Pacific Design Center soiree, got awards folks excitedly buzzing for its

      'Maleficent' and 'Zombieland' Deliver a Double Dose of Sequels this Weekend

      'Maleficent' and 'Zombieland' Deliver a Double Dose of Sequels this Weekend
      A pair of sequels hit theaters this weekend in Disney's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil and Sony's Zombieland: Double Tap, the latter arriving in theaters ten years after the original. Both will earn spots in the top three, though sandwiched between them will be WB's Joker, which looks to continue its strong run and potentially top $250 million domestically by the end of the weekend. At the same time, still in limited release, Neon's Parasite is adding 30 locations and may find its way into the top ten if it can maintain momentum from last weekend. Looking at what will be its seventh #1 opening of the year, Disney will debut Maleficent: Mistress of Evil in over 3,700 locations. The film, which finds Angelina Jolie reprising the title role, arrives five years after the original opened with nearly $70 million and went on to gross over $758 million worldwide. However, the appetite for the

      Taika Waititi Says Future of ‘Fat Thor’ an ‘Ongoing Debate’ With Marvel

      Taika Waititi Says Future of ‘Fat Thor’ an ‘Ongoing Debate’ With Marvel
      One of the big questions facing Taika Waititi’s upcoming Marvel sequel “Thor: Love and Thunder” is whether or not Thor will maintain his weight gain as seen in “Avengers: Endgame.” Thor’s larger appearance (widely dubbed “Fat Thor” online) was one of the big surprises in “Endgame,” but it didn’t come without a bit of controversy. Some fans accused “Endgame” of being fat-phobic for the way it continually used Thor’s weight gain as a punchline for jokes. In an interview with Yahoo while promoting “Jojo Rabbit,” Waititi said his “Thor: Love and Thunder” script is completed but it’s not finalized whether Thor will appear as he did in “Endgame” or return to his more muscular physique.

      “This is an ongoing debate that we’re still having at Marvel,” Waititi said. “‘Cause we’re trying to figure out how long — how many months or years — this is after ‘Endgame,

      From Apple to ‘South Park,’ Entertainment Companies Grapple With Profit Versus Ethics in China

      Apple TV+ shows are going to hit on a variety of topical themes, but don’t expect any of them to be critical of China. Apple’s upcoming streaming service made headlines late last week when BuzzFeed News reported that the company told some of its show developers to avoid angering the country, the latest news in a string of recent controversies regarding Western companies and their increasingly complicated relationships with China.

      Although major American entities such as Apple, the National Basketball Association, and Irvine-based video game developer Blizzard Entertainment have done business with China for years, stateside discontent regarding those relationships has increased in the last few weeks in the wake of the ongoing Hong Kong protests. It’s creating a dynamic where companies have to choose between their morals and their bottom line – and growth, more often than not, wins.

      Take the case of Apple. On one hand,

      Elton John and Taron Egerton Duet at ‘Rocketman’ Awards Season Event at the Greek Theatre

      Elton John and Taron Egerton Duet at ‘Rocketman’ Awards Season Event at the Greek Theatre
      Rocketman” has officially launched into awards season.

      Paramount hosted a screening of the film with a live-performance of the score by the Hollywood Symphony Orchestra and a headlining performance by Elton John and the film’s star Taron Egerton.

      John and Egerton — who is in contention for Best Actor for his portrayal of the singer as he skyrocketed to fame — kicked off their two-song set with the film’s original song, “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again.”

      The pair first publicly duetted at John’s annual AIDS Foundation Oscar Party in February, singing “Tiny Dancer” and teamed up for a surprise performance of “Rocket Man” after the film’s world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May. But on Thursday night in Los Angeles, Egerton told the crowd, “There’s one song we’ve never done live and I’ve always wanted to so I think we should do it.

      Quentin Tarantino Holds Firm, Won’t Recut ‘Once Upon a Time’ for China

      Quentin Tarantino Holds Firm, Won’t Recut ‘Once Upon a Time’ for China
      Quentin Tarantino will not recut “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” to placate Chinese censors, Variety has confirmed. The decision likely means that the Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt buddy dramedy and ode to late sixties Tinseltown won’t be making an appearance in China — at least in non-pirated form.

      Tarantino previously ran afoul of higher ups in the country with “Django Unchained” and ultimately agreed to make some excisions that eliminated scenes of graphic violence and nudity. It didn’t matter much. That film went on to flop in China, eking out $2.7 million, even as it grossed a mighty $425.4 million globally. “Once Upon a Time,” which boasts DiCaprio, a favorite with Chinese audiences, in a lead role along with another A-lister in Pitt, may have fared better.

      “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is distributed by Sony Pictures, but Tarantino has final cut on the film, so any alterations

      ‘Kill Chain’, Starring Nicolas Cage, Is about a Chain of Killings and Nicolas Cage | Review

      I am certain only of three facts about this thing after watching it, and they’re the same three facts I was certain of before I watched it: 1) It’s a movie. 2) Its title is Kill Chain. 3) Nicolas Cage is at it again, this time starring as a mercenary-turned-hotel owner named Ara?a (Spanish for “spider”) in one of those performances that will make you scratch your head until your face looks like this. As far as I can tell there has apparently been literally zero promotion for its October 18 release on Amazon Prime. …

      Box Office: ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ Flying Low With $35 Million Opening

      Box Office: ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ Flying Low With $35 Million Opening
      Angelina Jolie’s “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” is heading for an opening weekend of about $35 million at 3,790 North American locations — significantly below forecasts, early estimates showed on Friday.

      The fantasy sequel should still win the domestic weekend box office handily, denying Joaquin Phoenix’s “Joker” a third consecutive victory. “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” will also top the launch of another sequel, Sony’s “Zombieland: Double Tap,” which is coming in above expectations at about $28 million in a battle for second with “Joker.”

      Disney’s “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” had been forecast to launch around $45 million this weekend. The original “Maleficent” debuted with $69 million at the domestic box office in 2014 and went on to become a box office smash, earning more than $750 million globally from a $180 million budget.

      The cast includes returnees Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville, and newcomers Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Skrein and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

      ‘Tell Me Who I Am’ Review: A Harrowing Netflix Doc About Twins Separated by Secret Trauma

      ‘Tell Me Who I Am’ Review: A Harrowing Netflix Doc About Twins Separated by Secret Trauma
      There have been any number of films about the invention of self-identity — about how, as Kurt Vonnegut might put it, people are who they pretend to be. It was a universal phenomenon long before the likes of Jay Gatsby turned it into an American pastime, or the internet made us all into avatars of ourselves; the ability to refract one’s own image is an intrinsic part of the human experience, even (or especially) when it’s expressed through subconscious forces like denial, repression, and personal bias.

      Far less common, however, are films that explore the nature and ethics of inventing an identity for someone else; from “Gaslight” to “Memento,” most of the more obvious examples hinge on clear sociopathy or the sort of memory failures that you only tend to see in the movies. And yet, this is something we do to each other all the time in real life,

      ‘Living With Yourself’ Review: Paul Rudd Excels in Netflix’s Softhearted Mid-Life Crisis Comedy

      ‘Living With Yourself’ Review: Paul Rudd Excels in Netflix’s Softhearted Mid-Life Crisis Comedy
      Living With Yourself” is the kind of show that sends the spoiler discourse into overdrive. Starring Paul Rudd twice over, I can’t even tell you why there are two characters played by the affable everyman turned “Ant-Man” without blowing the big, initial surprise of Netflix’s new original series. The premise itself is a spoiler, and when that happens, lines are drawn: You’re either irate that some writer has spoiled the show’s central twist before you could watch it, or you’re confused and disinterested by the vague plot descriptions in an empty, superlative-laced review.

      So I’m going to spoil it. Consider this your warning, but if you need a yay or nay on “Living With Yourself” before we get into specifics, here’s my brief, assured yay vote: Paul Rudd gets to embody every iteration of Paul Rudd, from the whiny baby-man we met in

Featuring interviews with five artists, across different mediums, Ives intercuts between his subjects as they discuss everything from the call to create, to the problems that arise when art and commerce fail to reap the monetary awards that are needed for survival.
