Queen Sugar: why it's a time travel show for black audiences

1 hour ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Ava DuVernay drama teases out the ambivalence African Americans feel about returning to the South, and the pain inflicted on our ancestors

Time-travel is a recurring trope in pop film and TV culture. Whether it’s Marty McFly in Back to the Future, Tom Cruise in Minority Report, or the forthcoming Timeless and Frequency, it is something couch potatoes love to nerd out to.

While Oprah Winfrey and director Ava DuVernay’s Queen Sugar series isn’t a sci-fi fantasy, it does deal with time travel on a symbolic level. The show, based on the novel of the same name by Natalie Baszile, follows the family drama of the three Bordelon siblings: Charley, an NBA wife and business mogul in Los Angeles; Ralph Angel, a single-father parolee with tough luck and a troubled past; and Nova, a journalist and activist with a complicated personal life. The trio reunites back »

Will Luke Evans Return as Dracula in Universal Monsters Universe?

13 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal is moving ahead on their shared monsters cinematic universe, which officially debuts with Tom Cruise's The Mummy next year. Originally, Luke Evans' Dracula Untold was supposed to be the kickoff, but that didn't exactly work out. However, it looks like he may still get another crack at playing Dracula in the Universal Monsters universe, and it sounds like Universal may try to avoid recasting the role.

In a recent interview with Latino Review, Luke Evans talked a bit about Universal's plans and revealed that conversations have happened between himself and the studio. While nothing seems overly firm or certain, it appears that his version of Dracula could be coming face to face with Johnny Depp as the Invisible Man at some point. Here is what he had to say.

"There have been talks and conversations. I think the bigger picture is exciting for all the monsters that they own. »

Exclusive: Luke Evans Talks about Dracula’s Return in Universal’s Monster Mash

26 September 2016 4:06 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

One of the more exciting “shared universe” ideas that’s been bandied about following the success of Marvel’s The Avengers is Universal Pictures’ plans to bring together some of their classic movie monsters like Dracula, the Wolfman, the Mummy and presumably Frankenstein as well.

Late last year, Universal President Donna Langley said that the company’s slate will include new movies based on The Mummy, already in production, as well as new versions of Van Helsing, Bride of Frankenstein and The Wolfman.

A couple years ago, Luke Evans starred in Dracula Untold with his own interpretation of Vlad the Impaler, who would be the basis for the legend of Count Dracula, and it had an end sequence that set up the opportunity for a shared universe by bringing Dracula into the present day.

When Lrm spoke earlier today to Evans, who plays Scott Hipwell in Tate Taylor’s upcoming The Girl on the Train, »

Revisiting Hollywood's Biggest Prenup Payouts

26 September 2016 1:18 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Divorce can get pretty pricey—even when a prenup is involved.  While the drama between Angelina Jolie and her estranged husband Brad Pitt swirls regarding their ongoing divorce, one report from TMZ has surfaced describing the longtime couple's prenuptial agreement as "ironclad." Though the effects of such an agreement remain to be seen, the longtime couple were only legally married for two years, which will prove less complicated when dividing up the assets.  While a prenup is commonplace for most modern celebrity couples, even with a contract already signed, many can end up coughing up a pretty penny. Take Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, one of Hollywood's most prominent »

Denzel Washington, Tom Hanks Make a Case for Star Power

25 September 2016 12:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Antoine Fuqua knew what it would take to get him to remake “The Magnificent Seven,” John Sturges’ 1960 classic about a band of gunslingers. The film, which was itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 movie “The Seven Samurai,” is an oft-told story about a band of mercenaries who save a town. Its genetic code can be found in everything from “Star Wars” to “The Three Amigos.” But Fuqua knew how to give the familiar yarn a fresh spin.

In an interview with NPR, Fuqua said he turned to studio executives and told them, “Personally, what would make this an event for me to really want to make this movie is to see Denzel Washington on a horse in all black as a cowboy.'”

Of course, getting Denzel to ride into town takes a big check and often a taste of the backend. But in an era of diminishing star power, »

Louis Theroux’s My Scientology Movie gets a new poster

24 September 2016 10:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With less than two weeks to go until its UK release, a new poster has arrived online for Louis Theroux’s upcoming feature length documentary My Scientology Movie; check it out here…

See Also: Watch the latest trailer for My Scientology Movie

Following a long fascination with the religion, and with a lot of experience dealing with eccentric human behaviour, incomparable British broadcaster Louis Theroux won’t take no for an answer when his request to enter the Church of Scientology’s Los Angeles headquarters is turned down. Theroux’s insatiable curiosity motivates him to understand what life inside the Church is really like, and with the aid of former second-in-command at the Church, Mark ‘Marty’ Rathbun, he uses actors to replay incidents people claim they experienced with high profile members such as Tom Cruise and leader David Miscavige.

Suffused with a good dose of humour and moments worthy of a Hollywood script, »

The Outsiders: House of Pain rapper restores house in Coppola's movie

24 September 2016 3:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Danny O’Connor loved the film from the age of 12 and made pilgrimages to the house where it was filmed. Now he’s bought it to turn it into a museum

As a New Yorker based in California, Danny O’Connor wouldn’t seem to have much affinity with a movie set in a mid-sized city in the Us heartland.

But O’Connor, later a member of House of Pain, says his life was changed aged 12 by The Outsiders. Based on the 1967 book by Se Hinton, which she wrote in high school, and which has been studied by generations of American schoolchildren, The Outsiders is about two rival high school gangs divided by class. Directed by Francis Ford Coppola, most of its cast – Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Matt Dillon, Tom Cruise and Patrick Swayze – went on to be superstars, while the film was instantly acclaimed as an icon of drop-dead cool. »

The Lrm Interview: Byung-Hun Lee on Playing The Magnificent Seven’s Billy Rocks

23 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Actor Byung-hun Lee plays Billy Rocks in Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven

When it comes to the superstars from South Korea, Byung-Hun Lee is the equivalent of that country’s Tom Cruise or Tom Hanks in that he has starred in many of the country’s biggest hits and worked with their top directors.

In recent years, Lee has been making forays into the American movie market with appearances in the two G.I. Joe movies, playing Snake Eye’s nemesis Storm Shadow. His latest American role is in Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven, playing one of the seven, Billy Rocks, a quiet Asian outlaw who has teamed with Ethan Hawke’s Goodnight Robicheaux when Denzel Washington’s Chisolm comes a-calling, looking for men to help protect the town of Rose Creek.

Lrm sat down with Lee at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff), which happened »

One of the most celebrated film makers of the last four decades has died. Here’s how the New York Times reported it….

Curtis Hanson, the film director whose adaptation of the James Ellroy noir novel “L.A. Confidential” won him an Academy Award, died on Tuesday at his home in Los Angeles. He was 71.

The death was confirmed by Officer Jenny Houser, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department. She said that officers had been called to the house shortly before 5 p.m., and that Mr. Hanson had died of natural causes.

Julie Mann, his business manager, said Mr. Hanson had been struggling for some time with a form of dementia.

Leonardo DiCaprio Honors Martin Scorsese at Award Bash: ‘My Director, My Collaborator, My Friend’

22 September 2016 11:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Everybody loves Marty.

Martin Scorsese became the seventh recipient of the Friars Club Entertainment Icon Award Wednesday night in New York at Cipriani Wall Street.

“He tells a story well, that’s what a great director does,” said Larry King (the Friars Club’s current dean) on the red carpet. “He never fails.”

It was clear that the entertainment industry has a unique love and respect for the legendary director.

The extravagant ballroom of Cipriani was filled with some of Scorsese’s closest friends — Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio, Olivia Wilde, Sacha Baron Cohen, Juliette Lewis and Ellen Burstyn — all of whom presented speeches, which were shared in the form of funny stories, unforgettable moments and humbling words of appreciation.

“I thank you for everything you’ve done for me and our craft. You are my director, my collaborator, my friend,” DiCaprio said in his speech. “You are part of »

Madame Tussauds Separates Pitt and Jolie Wax Figures Amidst Divorce

22 September 2016 11:19 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If this doesn't make the split official, nothing will! Brangelina is officially no more as Madame Tussauds separates the two wax figures of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at several locations. A spokesman for the wax museum in London claims they wanted to mirror the separation, which was publicly announced this past Tuesday.

Now, the two wax figures who were once together as Brangelina have found new resting places far away from each other in the museum. The wax figure of Angelina Jolie is now dozing up next to Nicole Kidman, who once went through her own well-publicized separation with Tom Cruise way back in 2001. Jolie and Kidman have never appeared together in a movie.

Brad Pitt, on the other hand, has been placed next to one of his more famous co-stars, Morgan Freeman. The two shared the screen in the 1995 crime classic Se7en. The wax figure split will happen »

Tom Cruise & Cobie Smulders Deliver A Beatdown In The Latest TV Spot For Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

22 September 2016 9:35 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Judging by this latest TV spot, it looks like Tom Cruise won't be the only one beating in some faces this October when Jack Reacher: Never Go Back arrives in theaters as his leading lady, Cobie Smulders, looks more than ready to deliver a couple beatdowns of her own.  On another note, with the Ed Zwick-directed Jack Reacher sequel being Cruise's only release before Universal's highly anticipated reboot of The Mummy, which is due out June 2017, is there a possibility we get our first look at that film the same week as Jack Reacher's return to the big screen? Guess we'll find out in the next few weeks, but in the meantime, check out the latest TV spot below:   You don't want to mess with Jack Reacher. Tweet #Reacher »

Movie Review – De Palma (2016)

22 September 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

De Palma, 2016

Directed by Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow.

Synopsis:

A documentary exploring the life, work and influences behind the films of Brian De Palma

Brian De Palma may be popular among cineliterate enthusiasts but he’s never had the same popularity elsewhere. When you list his movies, it’s easy to imagine audiences being taken aback by the sheer quantity of classics he has under his belt. Carrie, Scarface and Mission Impossible are difficult to group together, spanning vividly different genres, and yet they fall under the impressive banner of Brian De Palma. De Palma, jointly directed by Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow, is primarily an interview, but it fills the screen with footage from each of his movies (and the classics that inspired them) and weaves this chronological canon together effortlessly.

Discussing each and every film in his eclectic filmography, De Palma is affably honest. He’s outspoken »

As if the divorce news alone isn't bad enough for him, Brad Pitt will soon begin a press tour ahead of the November release date for his film Allied.  The 52-year-old actor will face double the headlines as he promotes the movie—in which, by the way, he stars alongside Marion Cotillard, the woman many tabloids have pinned to Pitt in an alleged affair amid Angelina Jolie filing for divorce. So yes, to say the tour is bound to be a bit uncomfortable is an understatement...but Pitt isn't the first celebrity to deal with this. Let's take a look back at 8 other stars who carefully navigated press tours following their highly-publicized splits: Tom Cruise: Just »

Angelina Jolie Retains Laura Wasser for Divorce: Why You've Heard of Her

21 September 2016 11:55 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Angelina Jolie has retained attorney Laura Wasser to shepherd her split from Brad Pitt. That was a good move. Wasser, colloquially known as the "Disso Queen" (for dissolution … of marriage) around Hollywood, has been on one side of some of the most famous divorces in the industry (including Jolie's from Billy Bob Thornton - she repped Jolie). Most recently, Johnny Depp retained her in his proceedings with Amber Heard. But that's hardly the only split Wasser, 48, has guided: She also represented Jennifer Garner (in her divorce from Ben Affleck), Maria Shriver (in her divorce from Arnold Schwarzenegger), Denise Richards (in »
