Coming Distractions: Channing Tatum and Adam Driver pull a Nascar heist in this trailer for Logan Lucky

10 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s movies were all basically about how cool and charming A-list Hollywood stars are, but this trailer for his new heist movie Logan Lucky looks almost like a direct rejection of all of that George Clooney style. For starters, it centers on two brothers (played by Channing Tatum and a one-armed Adam Driver) who are planning to rob a Nascar event, the computer whiz is introduced playing Horseshoes with toilet seats, and one member of the crew is played by Seth MacFarlane. But that’s all without even mentioning Daniel Craig’s Joe Bang, the ringer that Tatum and Driver call on to help plan the heist. Craig has spent years playing the effortlessly cool James Bond, but Joe Bang is somehow way cooler than James Bond has ever been, and if Logan Lucky takes off like the Ocean’s series did, he deserves to star »

A Los Angeles judge signed off on a warrant for the arrest of Bikram Choudhury, the founder of hot yoga, on Wednesday, over suspicions that he fled the U.S. to avoid paying millions in damages to Minakshi Jafa-Bodden.

Arrest Warrant Issued after Hot Yoga Founder Allegedly Fled U.S. Without Paying $7M Lawsuit

25 May 2017 12:37 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

This week, a Los Angeles judge signed off on an arrest warrant for Bikram Choudhury, the 73-year-old hot-yoga guru who, in 2016, was ordered to pay millions following a harassment lawsuit by his former attorney.

Court records obtained by People allege that Choudhury — the founder of Bikram Yoga — has yet to pay a penny of the more than $7 million that was awarded to Minakshi Jafa-Bodden last year.

Jafa-Bodden accused Choudhury of sexually harassing her and then firing her after she began looking into claims by other women that he had sexually assaulted them.

Jafa-Bodden had served as general counsel to Bikram’s Yoga College of India. »

Joseph Fiennes Reflects On Losing A Main Star Wars Role

25 May 2017 6:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems that every successful actor has a near-miss story when it comes to auditions, and they can often provide an amusing glimpse into not only what might have been, but also the decision-making processes used to cast important roles. Infamous examples include the time that George Clooney tried for the role of J.D in Thelma And Louise – which ultimately went to Brad Pitt – and Joe Manganiello reaching the final stage of casting for the role of Superman in Man Of Steel. The most recent revelation in this arena comes from Joseph Fiennes, and it concerns Star Wars.

Speaking to The Wrap about his new television show The Handmaid’s Tale, Fiennes explained what happened when he tried to become a Jedi.

“I auditioned for a great director. It was whittled down after many auditions to myself and another fine actor who I was at that time at drama school with. »

TV Drives Growth at Entertainment One Amid Overhaul of Film Side

23 May 2017 2:18 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mark Gordon and TV distribution powered growth at Entertainment One in 2017, as the Canada-based company overhauls its film operations and plans for fewer bigger-budget features next year.

International sales drove TV revenues, with new series “Private Eyes,” “Cardinal,” and “Mary Kills People” coming through in the company’s 2017 financial year. EOne also has AMC zombie hit “The Walking Dead,” as well as ABC series “Designated Survivor,” after taking a majority stake in The Mark Gordon Co., which posted a seven-fold rise in revenue to £119 million ($155 million). Overall TV revenues for eOne were £328.2 million, up 85% from the previous year.

Film revenues were £594.2 million, a 7% increase year-on-year. Earlier this month, U.K.-listed eOne had warned investors to brace for $47 million of writedowns, mostly stemming from its film business.

The largest single charge recorded in the full-year results released Tuesday was $25 million, which eOne said related to an unspecified film distribution agreement. »

Us producer and director delivered a keynote at the festival today.

In his keynote address at the Winston Baker Film Financing Forum today (May 19), an ebullient Brett Ratner revealed just how he rescued Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Oscar winner The Revenant when it went over budget; why he will soon be returning to directing; his plans to enter the TV business in a major way; and why he thinks Vr is ideal for porn.

Inside Chris Cornell’s Final Weeks: Touring and Spending Time with His ‘Perfect Wife’ and Kids

Chris Cornell was fully immersed in work and family in the weeks before his startling death on Wednesday night at age 52.

Although a medical examiner ruled that the former Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman died of suicide by hanging, his family insisted in a statement released through their attorney that the devoted husband and father would not have knowingly and intentionally taken his own life — and question whether any “substances” played a role in his death.

“Without the results of toxicology tests, we do not know what was going on with Chris — or if any substances contributed to his demise,” Cornell »

Michael Parks obituary

19 May 2017 8:56 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Actor likened to James Dean in his youth who was adopted in middle age by hip directors such as Quentin Tarantino

Michael Parks, who has died aged 77, was a softly spoken character actor who enjoyed a prolific and chequered film and television career, largely in the exploitation genre. In middle age he was adopted as something of a mascot by the hip directors Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez and Kevin Smith. “Michael was, and will likely for ever remain, the best actor I’ve ever known,” said Smith, who directed him as a menacing preacher in Red State (2011) and as a sinister seaman with a bizarre walrus fixation in Tusk (2014). Both roles were written especially for him by Smith, who said: “He will take a page of dialogue and deliver it in a different way than anybody else.”

Parks had appeared earlier as the mobster and drug-runner Jean Renault in David Lynch »
