It’s the day before the Oscars, which means its time for the Razzies to celebrate the very worst that Hollywood had to offer from the past twelve months.
Warner Bros.’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice took a beating with four awards – Worst Supporting Actor (Jesse Eisenberg), Worst Prequel, Remake, Ripoff or Sequel, Worst Screenplay and Worst Screen Combo (Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill).
Tying Batman v Superman with four awards was the political documentary Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party which was named Worst Picture, along with Worst Director (Dinesh D’Souza, Bruce Schooley), Worst Actor (Dinesh D’Souza) and Worst Actress (Becky Turner). Meanwhile, Kristen Wiig was named Worst Supporting Actress for Zoolander 2.

It's the Saturday before Oscars. And that can mean only one thing! Yes, this year's Razzie Award winners have been announced. The crop of cinematic crap in 2016 was so extensive that this year's 37th Annual Razzie Awards expanded from 5 nominees to an unprecedented 6 contenders in each of its 9 Worst Achievement in Film categories. Leading this year's list of movie-misfires were the 15-years-too-late sequel Zoolander No. 2 and the Wtf comic book battle-royale Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Each was up for both Worst Picture and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel. Other Worst Picture nominees include Dirty Grandpa, Gods of Egypt, Hillary's America and Independence Day: Resurgence.
Many expected Batman v Superman would take Worst Picture of the year. But it failed to live up to even that hype, proving it can't catch a break. Instead, the Worst Picture Award went to a truly despicable piece of tabloid cinema known as Hillary's America. »

It’s been an exciting awards season this year, but it’ll all come to an end tomorrow night when the 89th Academy Awards take place. La La Land is expected to walk away victorious in most categories and analysts aren’t predicting too many upsets or surprises. But the Oscars aren’t the only big awards ceremony taking place this weekend, as the 37th Golden Raspberry Awards, or Razzies for short, have just concluded and the results are now in.
There were certainly more than a handful of horrible, awful, waste of time films to release in 2016, but the biggest offenders here seem to be Dirty Grandpa, Zoolander 2, Hilary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Having that last one show »

Even the Razzies got political at the 2017 awards, recognizing the “worst in film.”
The Golden Raspberry Awards, nicknamed the “Razzies” crowned “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” the worst picture of the year on Saturday, the day before the Academy Awards. The critically drubbed political documentary, which earned a staggering 4% on Rotten Tomatoes, also swept the worst actor, worst actress and worst director categories.
As to not be entirely overlooked, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” also took home four awards for worst supporting actor, screenplay, screen combo and, finally, worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel.
The Worst Films of 2016

Awards season finally comes to an end tomorrow night with the 89th Academy Awards, and the 37th Golden Raspberry Awards (nicknamed the Razzies) are honoring the very worst films of 2016. It turns out that it was such a horrific year at multiplexes that the categories were expanded to include six nominees.

Ben Stiller’s critically reviled “Zoolander 2” had the most nominations of the year, competing in nine categories, including the coveted Worst Picture. Other multiple nominees included “Dirty Grandpa” (six nominations), “Independence Day: Resurgence” (five nominations) and “Alice Through the Looking Glass” (three nominations). But two films took home the majority of the dubious honors, with the bloated mashup of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and lazy propaganda of “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” “winning” all but one of the top dishonors.
Below are all of this year’s Razzie nominees. »

While he’s not nominated for an Oscar this year, George Clooney did take home the French equivalent of the Academy’s golden statue at the César ceremony.
Touted beforehand as “the most charismatic actor of his generation,” the Ocean’s Eleven star and his wife Amal, pregnant with their twins, brought Hollywood glamour to Paris at the Salle Pleyel on Friday. Dressed in his signature black Armani tuxedo and bow tie, Clooney looked dashing next to his wife, who showed off her baby bump in a fitted white gown tapered with an ombré of ostrich feathers.

“Pirates of the Caribbean” star Johnny Depp‘s former managers put him a hole with the IRS so deep that it cost him more than $6 million in penalties and interest, according to court documents filed last week. According to the documents, Depp’s former managers were responsible for “egregious deficiencies in making Mr. Depp’s tax payments,” costing the actor a bundle. In the documents, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Feb. 15, tax attorney Miriam L. Fisher — whose firm was retained by Depp to help sort out delinquencies in his 2014 tax bill — says that, while dealing with Depp’s. »

USA Network has set three stars for its upcoming drama pilot “Unsolved,” which will examine the murders of rap legends Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur. Josh Duhamel, Bokeem Woodbine, and Jimmi Simpson have all joined the series as the real-life detectives investigating the murder. Duhamel is set to play Detective Greg Kading. In 2006, Kading was asked to help spearhead a multi-agency task force with the sole purpose of finding out who was responsible for Christopher Wallace’s (Aka Biggie Smalls) murder, once and for all.

Stars: Lily-Rose Depp, Harley Quinn Smith, Johnny Depp. Justin Long, Austin Butler, Adam Brody, Ralph Garman, Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne, Haley Joel Osment, Vanessa Paradis, Tyler Posey, Génesis Rodríguez, Jennifer Schwalbach, Sasheer Zamata | Written and Directed by Kevin Smith
So, Kevin Smith… A man whose work I’ve really enjoyed over the years (Clerks 2 and Dogma being my personal highlights, though I used to live for Mallrats), took a, let’s say, interesting path with his recent directorial efforts Red State and Tusk. Exploring the horror genre rather than the comedy/drama he became known for, Smith looks to have a new-found passion for filmmaking, seemingly no longer going through the motions with his View Askewniverse – though he has just announced another Jay and Silent Bob flick!
Instead Smith announced the development of a “True North” trilogy: strange genre tales set in Canada, a country that – like Smith – I have an affinity for. »

Should he win, Washington would have more Oscars under his belt than any other African-American actor. He is already the most nominated, having landed his seventh nod this year for Fences, and is also the only African-American to win multiple acting Oscars.
But with Casey Affleck’s gut-wrenching turn in Manchester By the Sea wracking up best actor nominations and wins throughout awards season, this year’s Oscars will see Washington playing an unfamiliar role: the underdog.

When Finding Neverland opened on Broadway in 2015 after a famously troubled incubation and took a critical hammering, the initial box-office receipts seemed to reflect a prevailing notion about the show: How could a musical about the birth of Peter Pan, with the likable stars from Glee and Frasier, be anything other than charming? But while this adaptation of the 2004 Johnny Depp film does have adorable children, a shaggy dog, pixie dust and a few truly stirring moments, it's also packed with dark themes, bland songs and bleak choreography, none of which are particularly kid-friendly.

Johnny Depp's ex-managers have a collective brass pair for suing him ... according to Johnny who says he has massive tax receipts to prove how much they screwed him. Depp and his old management firm, Tmg, are locked in a huge legal battle -- first, Johnny said they defrauded him out of $25 million and then Tmg filed a countersuit against him. But in new docs, Johnny says it's laughable they'd try to sue him. According to the docs, »

Angelina Jolie arguably remains one of the most bankable movie stars in Hollywood. Granted, the last time she appeared in a live-action film was for 2015’s underperformer, By the Sea. But prior to that misfire, the combination of her marquee name and Disney nostalgia propelled Maleficent to a $759 million gross during the summer of 2014. And along with a purported Maleficent 2, many producers have sought the star to reprise roles in potential blockbusters like a now dormant Wanted 2 and the abandoned Salt 2.
However, personal life aside, she has kept a low profile in Hollywood, electing instead to direct a movie set and produced in Cambodia (Netflix has since purchased the international rights). Apparently things are changing at Universal Pictures, however, since THR is reporting she has »
A Cure for Wellness, 2017.
Directed by Gore Verbinski.
An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company’s CEO from an idyllic but mysterious “wellness center” at a remote location in the Swiss Alps, but soon suspects that the spa’s treatments are not what they seem.
If only all vanity projects were as masturbatory and hysterically overwrought as Gore Verbinski’s A Cure for Wellness. It’s a 150-minute homage to Dario Argento, a critique of modern capitalism, a grotesque flamboyant fairy tale and in the current climate of turgid, machine made, a copy of a copy of a copy horror cinema, it’s a refreshing excursion to somewhere new. It’s a frantic exercise in absolute excess.
It’s hard to imagine how the film was bankrolled following Verbinski’s attempt at »

The exhausting hunt for Osama bin Laden was something the world was certainly aware of, but the cloak and dagger operation kept things under wraps until the evening of 1st May 2011 when in a seemingly sudden move, at least to the general population, bin Laden »

Universal Pictures has brought on Dan Mazeau (Wrath of the Titans) to rewrite the script for the studio's Van Helsing reboot. It is part of Universal Studios' monster universe, which will feature a bunch of classic creatures in modern day. While his involvement hasn't been reported until now, Dan Mazeau has been with this project since September. He was also part of the original writers room that came together to flesh out this universe, which included Noah Hawley (Legion), Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black).
The Tracking Board broke the news of this writer coming aboard, with Eric Heisserer (Arrival) and Jon Spaihts (The Mummy, Passengers) previously working on this project together through the writers room. Just yesterday, Eric Heisserer revealed that he tried to make the movie as scary as possible, although he qualified that by stating, "I don't know what it's going to look »
Los Angeles is a “City of Stars” year round, as the Oscar-nominated film La La Land points out in it’s Golden Globe-winning Best Original Song, but come Awards Season, the city is stuffed to the gills with A-listers attending endless ceremonies, popping up at after parties, and of course crashing in its many impressive hotels.

Here, a guide to some of Hollywood’s favorite haunts for living it up — and recuperating in style. »

Josh Gad has stopped grilling “Murder on the Orient Express” costar Daisy Ridley about “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” — instead, he enlisted Chris Pratt, Penelope Cruz and Bryce Dallas Howard to do the questioning. “Please don’t say you’re setting me up this time,” Ridley says to Gad, who is filming the interaction for the Instagram video below. “I have no more questions… they do,” he says as he pans the camera to a bunch of people sitting on a couch, including some of her other “Murder on the Orient Express” costars.
