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.

After all of the bad PR surrounding Johnny Depp, Disney removed him from all Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales promotional materials, at least until the Super Bowl. Now, after feeling like it’s safe to bring him out of hiding, they’ve released a series of new posters centered around the famed pirate. They’re absolutely […] »

Director Gore Verbinski has crafted quite an interesting career. After striking genre gold with the remake of the Japanese horror film Ringu, orchestrating one of Disney’s most successful franchises with Pirates of the Caribbean, and continuing his collaboration with Johnny Depp on the animated film Rango and the reboot of The Lone Ranger, Verbinski was poised to do whatever he wanted to do with his next film, and it doesn’t take long to realize this quality in the director’s new film, A Cure for Wellness.
For nearly two and a half hours, Verbinski compiles a beautiful, confounding, and chaotic medley of his favorite and most influential film scenes recreated. One moment you are whisked away on a train ride through the Swiss Alps in a moment of stunning scenery, the next you are offered images of unnerving and repulsive situations. It’s undeniable that Verbinski and director »

Horror legend Sam Raimi has signed on to direct a new Bermuda Triangle mystery thriller project for Skydance Productions. The thriller is actually one of three separate films currently in development about the mysterious Bermuda Triangle, with one set up at Universal and the other being worked on at Warner Bros. No plot details have been given for any of these projects, with each studio worried about their own takes getting leaked.
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the project's plot details are being kept a secret so much that Sam Raimi had to visit the Skydance Productions offices just to read the script. While the story details are being kept under wraps, it was revealed that the script itself was written by the writing team of Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard, whose writing credits include The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and the Netflix series Narcos. »
According to THR, Raimi is in discussions to direct a "mystery thriller" about the Bermuda Triangle for Skydance Productions. Covering a vast area of the Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda, Florida, and Puerto Rico, the Bermuda Triangle has long been a real life setting for bizarre disappearances of planes and ships. The mysteries of that stretch of sea are not only of interest to Skydance—Universal and Warner Bros. are also putting together projects based on the Bermuda Triangle.
Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard (Narcos, The Great Wall, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, The Uninvited) penned the script for Skydance's Bermuda Triangle movie, with an earlier draft written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (2009's Friday the 13th, new »

It isn’t every week, month, or even year that Hollywood bankrolls a movie as ambitiously bugfuck as A Cure For Wellness. Equal parts baroque fairy-tale, atmospheric mystery, and hideous body-horror nightmare, the film puts what could have been a cost-effective genre exercise on steroids, giving life to a two-and-half-hour, R-rated Frankenstein monster. Who had the industry clout to realize such a warped vision on such a large scale? The byline reads Gore Verbinski, virtuosic operator of Disney’s most profitable live-action rollercoaster ride, the Pirates Of The Caribbean series. After several for them—all starring Johnny Depp, not all beloved—Verbinski seems to have made one for himself. His Cure For Wellness is too long and not entirely satisfying on a narrative level, but all of its bugs look a little like features: This is the kind of singularly strange production that you appreciate for its excess and lumpiness »

Mahershalalhashbaz Gilmore, better known as Mahershala Ali, starred in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Place Beyond the Pines, and House of Cards, among other projects across the last decade or so, but he’s rightfully garnered newfound acclaim with his affecting supporting turn in Moonlight. Coming off his Oscar nomination and SAG win, he’s now find another major role.
After joining the James Cameron-produced Alita: Battle Angel, he’s now coming aboard Triple Frontier. The former Kathryn Bigelow project, now being directed by J.C. Chandor (All is Lost, A Most Violent Year), already has Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum as part of the ensemble. Scripted by Mark Boal, the thriller is set between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil.

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.
This Past Weekend:
The Lego Batman Movie won the weekend as expected, but not with nearly as much money as I had predicted, not besting the opening of The Lego Movie as expected, but instead ending up with a reasonable and not so bad $53 million. Fifty Shades Darker proved that the audience for movies based on the popular books was still great enough for it to win Friday with $21 million (to Lego Batman’s $15 million) and end up second for the weekend with a strong $46.6 million. That was still almost $40 million less than the opening of the previous movie Fifty Shades of Grey, but the sequel also didn’t have the benefits of Valentine’s Day and a four-day holiday. Coming in »

Mahershala Ali is a busy bee. After breaking into Hollywood’s big leagues through eye-catching performances in Netflix staples like House of Cards and Luke Cage, the actor is arguably one of the most in-demand stars of the moment, and Ali’s scenery-chewing work as Moonlight‘s volatile crack dealer Juan was duly honored with a SAG Award late last month.
Currently filming his part in Alita: Battle Angel, The Hollywood Reporter brings word today that Mahershala Ali has now entered negotiations to board Triple Frontier, the crime saga to be directed by J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year). Talks are ongoing, but should a deal place, Ali will star opposite Channing Tatum and Taboo‘s Tom Hardy, who each closed their respective deals back in January.

There’s a tradition, if not a huge one, of movies that feature heroes who are too cool to speak. In the Sergio Leone spaghetti Westerns, Clint Eastwood wasn’t just the Man with No Name, he was the Man of (Almost) No Words, and that served him fine. The title character of “Mr. Long,” played by the fiercely charismatic Chang Chen, is very much in the same mold. He’s a Taiwanese hitman so fearless and lethal that he uses blades instead of guns — he’ll enter a roomful of gangsters and take them all down with a six-inch knife, as though he were the Bruce Lee of cutthroat stabbing. In Tokyo, though, one of his assignments goes awry, and he escapes, injured, and finds refuge in a dilapidated section of town, where Jun (Runyin Bai), a young boy, brings him clothing and water. He winds up hiding out »

La La Land’s singing and dancing stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone may be center stage in the Oscar-nominated film, but movie history buffs (and Angelenos) likely noticed another small but significant cameo right at the end when, ahem, the big thing happens. (No spoilers here.)
The Chateau Marmont, Hollywood’s most infamous hotel, makes an appearance, as the final real-life Los Angeles location featured in the film, which has been called a love letter to the city. But it’s not simply a quaint bit of nostalgia like the Rialto Theatre or Angel’s Flight.

I have not sent this letter to Johnny Depp, but if it somehow finds its way to the star I do hope he reads it. The reason for this letter is just a hunch, but I have a bad feeling about Johnny Depp right now. The recent split with Amber Heard was just the beginning but also a culmination of things that I think we can agree might be putting the star over the edge. The latest news surrounding Depp has been his exorbitant spending habits that have been rivaled by none other than Nicolas Cage. Recent articles suggest that

Kevin Smith has always had to fight to get his films off the ground: he started his filmmaking career by maxing out multiple credit cards to self-finance Clerks, and more recently, legend has it, it was only Johnny Depp’s decision to come on board as a wacky supporting character that allowed Smith to secure financing for his walrus-centric horror flick Tusk.
Smith has, across his career, been offered several barmy jobs (he rejected a chance to pen Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian back in the 90s) and he’s also signed up for a lot of projects that never got past the script phase.
The latter camp of could’ve-beens is what we’re talking about today, following that news that Clerks III »

Among geeky film fans, Kevin Smith needs no introduction. He’s brought us such treats as Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma, and recently he’s had a massive resurgence as a giant in the nerdy podcast world.
So far, two movies have come out of Smith’s podcasting: first was Tusk, branching out from a SModcast episode about a Gumtree advert seeking someone willing to dress up as a walrus in exchange for lodgings. Justin Long starred in that one, with Smith’s daughter Harley Quinn Smith featuring in the supporting cast alongside her best friend Lily Rose Depp and her famous father Johnny Depp.
