Welcome to Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of entertainment-related kerfuffles. Not anxious enough already? Get your fix of righteous indignation below, and stay posted for outrage updates throughout the week. So...Jim Carrey. Not a big fan of vaccines (or rather, the trace amounts of mercury and aluminum contained in vaccines). Or California Governor Jerry Brown. Or California Governor Jerry Brown's decision Tuesday to eliminate personal and religious exemptions for immunizations for schoolchildren in the state. We know this because he is being very, very vocal about it on Twitter. This is not a surprise, as Carrey once dated Jenny McCarthy, who has previously linked her son's autism with immunizations. California Gov says yes to poisoning more children with mercury and aluminum in manditory vaccines. This corporate fascist must be stopped. — Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) July 1, 2015 They say mercury in fish is dangerous but forcing all of our children »

What: Malibu fireworks When: July 4 Where: Nobu Malibu Why: It’s no secret that it’s the best spot to ooh and ahh. You could put a blanket down on the beach, which is what Drew Barrymore, Jim Carrey, Kendall Jenner and Paris Hilton have done in the past. Or you could party at Nobu Malibu, which hosts an exclusive event on its oceanside deck where Emmanuelle Chriqui, Chris Brown, Elle Fanning and Russell Simmons were spotted last year. While Malibu isn’t officially in favor of fireworks — "All displays are done through private residents and only on barges far enough from the beach; the

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective could have been a heck of a lot darker than it turned out. While it.s known as one of Jim Carrey.s more well-known and highly over-the-top comedies, earlier drafts of the script included gruesome beheadings and one guy.s suicide by shooting himself through the mouth. Though these moments were featured in the original script (available online) and the commentary track from director Tom Shadyac, these script scenes are causing a viral storm online. A Reddit user found the original script at DailyScript.com and took a screenshot of these scenes, which was then posted to the content-sharing platform through Imgur. The first scene details how different the pet detective's encounter with Lt. Lois Einhorn.s goons could have gone. Standing on top of a machine and brandishing a 200 lb. metal hook attached to a chain from the ceiling, Ace "gently releases" the hook, »
Jim Carrey is not happy with California Gov. Jerry Brown. The actor, 53, believes there is a link between vaccines and autism and called Brown a "corporate fascist" after he signed into law one of the strictest immunization programs in the country Tuesday. The bill would require kids at daycares and schools to be vaccinated unless there's a serious medical reason why they shouldn't be. Personal or religious exemptions would not be permitted, and if parents disagree, they can home-school their kids. Only two states, Mississippi and West Virginia, are as strict. Carrey has been an activist on the hotly debated issue since his relationship with Jenny McCarthy, who believes her son's autism »

Jim Carrey did not hold back his anger over vaccinations on Tuesday when he unleashed his wrath on Twitter. “California Gov says yes to poisoning more children with mercury and aluminum in manditory vaccines. This corporate fascist must be stopped,” the “Dumb and Dumber” actor wrote. Carrey was referring to the controversial law that was passed earlier in the day by Gov. Jerry Brown eliminating the state’s previous exemptions from vaccinations for personal or religious beliefs. The new ruling requires mandatory vaccinations for nearly every school child in the state.

Every now and again a movie trailer comes along that is all kinds of wrong for the movie it is trying to promote. This is a list of some of the worst head scratchers.
Just because a movie is good doesn’t necessarily mean that its trailer is as well. Many times the filmmakers responsible for the film itself don’t have much input (if any) into the trailer. When that happens, the trailer can end up misinterpreting the intent of the film. At other times, the trailer may try too hard to get audiences interested in the film, going so far as to show all the best parts from the film. This includes giving away the twists or the ending, such that people who may have watched the trailer before seeing the film already know how it ends. This is a look at some of the worst offenders, those »

“Nantucket has been a creative refuge for decades,” multihyphenate Ben Stiller says. “The festival has coalesced the film-writing community and celebrated individuality — in a way that is part of being on the island: independent, isolated (so as to) foster risk-taking.”
A Nantucket Film Festival board member, Stiller often attends the fest, which turns 20 this year. He regularly hosts a lively, Sro All-Star Comedy Roundtable that has welcomed Mike Myers, Seth Meyers, Bill Hader, Chris Rock, Sarah Silverman and Brian Williams, among others.
The event will kick off June 24 with A24’s David Foster Wallace drama “The End of the Tour,” starring Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg. Documentary “The Best of Enemies” about the televised debates between William F. Buckley Jr. and Gore Vidal during the 1968 presidential election, »

By the end of the Summer of Love in 1967, the Bronx was a warzone overrun by gangs and violence like a real-life scene from The Warriors. The recently released documentary Rubble Kings explains how the warring sets made peace in the Seventies and paved the way for the birth of hip-hop. The first five minutes of the film, which is now available as part of the BitTorrent Bundle below, are streaming above.
The story begins with Carlos "Karate Charlie" Suarez and "Yellow" Benji Melendez, who came together to form a »
It was 20 years ago that the third modern Batman movie was released. An uncertain time for the character who just six years earlier had revolutionized the modern blockbuster, helped launch the modern age of comic book adaptations, and made an untold millions for Warner Bros. The follow-up, Batman Returns, was seen as a disappointment by the studio who felt the series had taken a dark turn and lost much of its mainstream appeal.
The third installment would be a departure both for Michael Keaton and Tim Burton who left the franchise in the hands of Joel Schumacher. Joel Schumacher… who would one day brutally murder the franchise with reckless abandon and shelve the Dark Knight for nearly a decade before Christopher Nolan found a way to make him interesting (and profitable) again. We all know that Batman & Robin is a »

Bill Maher defines “smug” for Jerry Seinfeld in Wednesday’s episode of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” In a preview clip, Maher and Seinfeld ride around in a 1979 Volkswagen Beetle police car and discuss how they think they’d do in prison, goat butter, smugness and arrogance. After Maher delivers one punchline, Seinfeld replies, “Now that is the comedy team of Smug and Arrogant, right there.” Also read: Jim Carrey Gives Jerry Seinfeld a Tour of His Art Studio on 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' (Video) “I love talking to you, by the way,” Seinfeld tells the HBO host. »

Clint Eastwood revisited Harry Callahan three more times, usually whenever his career was in the dumps. If Dirty Harry was a cultural phenomenon and Magnum Force a respectable follow-up, the rest are uninspired cash-ins. The main law Harry enforces in these sequels is the Law of Diminishing Returns.
Given Dirty Harry‘s San Francisco setting, something like The Enforcer (1976) was inevitable. After all, San Fran hosted Haight-Ashbury, hippie capital of the world; was a favored site for Black Panther and Sds protests; headquarters of the nascent gay rights movement; victim of Weathermen bombings and the racially-charged Zebra murders. Writers Gail Morgan Hickman and S.W. Schurr based their script, originally titled “Moving Target,” on the Symbionese Liberation Army which kidnapped Patty Hearst. Dean Riesner (who cowrote the original Harry) and Stirling Silliphant (In the Heat of the Night) polished the film.

Ron Moody as Fagin in 'Oliver!' based on Charles Dickens' 'Oliver Twist.' Ron Moody as Fagin in Dickens musical 'Oliver!': Box office and critical hit (See previous post: "Ron Moody: 'Oliver!' Actor, Academy Award Nominee Dead at 91.") Although British made, Oliver! turned out to be an elephantine release along the lines of – exclamation point or no – Gypsy, Star!, Hello Dolly!, and other Hollywood mega-musicals from the mid'-50s to the early '70s. But however bloated and conventional the final result, and a cast whose best-known name was that of director Carol Reed's nephew, Oliver Reed, Oliver! found countless fans. The mostly British production became a huge financial and critical success in the U.S. at a time when star-studded mega-musicals had become perilous – at times downright disastrous – ventures. Upon the American release of Oliver! in Dec. 1968, frequently acerbic The »

Jerry Seinfeld revved up a 1976 Lamborghini Countach and sped off to Jim Carrey‘s estate for the latest episode of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” After the “Ace Ventura” funnyman offered up an unconventional entrance to the web series, the duo headed to Killer Cafe in Marina del Rey for cups of java and conversation, where Carrey even supplied his own sweetener. Seinfeld added huevos rancheros to the experience, but Carrey, on Day 21 of a cleanse, stuck with the coffee and the comedy. The two shared their fondest memories of each others’ old sets — Jerry loved Jim’s “On Golden. »

Brian Williams no longer has enough credibility among viewers to anchor NBC’s venerable evening newscast, according to the company that still employs him, but he may still be able to function in the loosier-goosier world of cable news.
NBCUniversal said Williams, a star anchor to whom it was paying $10 million a year to serve as a sort of face of its flagship network, NBC, would move to MSNBC to anchor breaking-news coverage that largely appears in the daytime, part of an ongoing effort to draw viewers back to the ailing cable network. Meantime, the network has set Lester Holt in the chair at its “NBC Nightly News,” making him the first African-American to host a TV-network newscast solo (Max Robinson co-anchored ABC’s “World News Tonight” in the 1970s). Williams will also serve as a breaking news anchor for NBC News live special reports when Holt is not available. »

This may sound like a mad fever dream, but it came close to actually happening in the wake of 1997's Batman & Robin.
Prior to that franchise-killing film's release, director Joel Schumacher and I Am Legend screenwriter Mark Protosevich teamed up to work on a script that would return Batman to his dark roots as he faced a roster of psychotic supervillains.
"It was going to be very dark," Schumacher told The Hollywood Reporter. "I remember going to the set of Face »
