The Mexican actor, 37, was spotted getting cozy with British model-actress Suki Waterhouse, 25, in Tulum, Mexico, on Saturday as they packed on the Pda during a leisurely stroll. Holding hands and keeping a close eye on each other, the casual couple took in the natural sights as they sipped on drinks and enjoyed the tropical weather.
The pair kept their look low-key, with Waterhouse opting for a see-through purple top and black shorts while the actor sported a blue button-down shirt with a pair of long beige shorts. »
The cult classic was written by Andrew Kevin Walker, who at the time had optioned the script with “Christmas Vacation” helmer Jeremiah Chechik on board to direct. But Chechik had a different movie in mind and told Walker to rewrite the ending.
[Editor’s Note: Spoilers for “Seven” follow. Proceed at your own risk.]
The movie as we know it ends with John Doe (Kevin Spacey) delivering Detective Mills’ (Pitt) wife’s head in a box. Walker’s reworked version didn’t include that scene. After Chechik moved on from the project, the original version of the script with the shocking twist accidentally landed in the hands of Fincher.
“[Fincher] expressed some interest [in directing], but in expressing his interest to them, had mentioned there was a head in the box,” Walker told The Hollywood Reporter. “And they were like, »

"Shocking" is a word that gets tossed around a lot these days when it comes to TV and film. But back when David Fincher's Seven hit theaters in 1995, the film's disturbing conclusion truly was a shock.
Warning: If you haven't seen Seven, make sure to go check it out before reading on.
The film ends with the revelation that John Doe (Kevin Spacey) has meticulously planned a finale to his crimes that sees Mills (Brad Pitt) become the final sin, wrath, and murder John Doe. The killer had murdered Mills' wife, Tracy (Gwyneth Paltrow), and had her head delivered »

Annette Bening's Oscar Nominated RolesAnnette Bening's Oscar Nominated RolesAdriana Floridia1/12/2017 10:14:00 Am
Annette Bening is one of our greatest working actors, and the Academy has surely recognized that. She's been nominated for four Oscars, three for Best Actress in a Leading Role and one for her supporting work in 1990's The Grifters. Despite these accolades, she has yet to take home the gold.
This year, she is again an Oscar front-runner for her performance in Mike Mills' 20th Century Women. Another semi-autobiographical film from the director (his 2011 feature Beginners was based on his real experiences with his father, and Christopher Plummer won the Oscar for his portrayal), this time Mills is paying tribute to his mom. Annette is filling big shoes, playing a character inspired by the director's mother, and Mills' has even said that Annette in a sense is like his mom now, as he has »

Truth and Lies: The Menendez Brothers — American Sons, American Murderers aired last week, and even if you were familiar with the case, you still may have been surprised by some of the more grisly details. One of the strangest things about the case, in which Erik and Lyle Menendez brutally murdered their parents, is that the crime was inspired by a TV miniseries . . . which was inspired by a real murder case. The film is called Billionaire Boys Club, and it stars Judd Nelson as a rich La playboy who runs a Ponzi scheme. It begins as a "get rich quick" scam, but eventually the crimes become more serious, and the need for cash leads to murder. Here's a poorly recorded video of the trailer: It sounds like a ridiculous story, but the movie is based on a real organization. The Billionaire Boys Club was founded in the '80s by Joseph Henry Gamsky, »

Adam Fields claims that Ryan Kavanaugh fraudulently induced him to take a job as co-president of Relativity Media, in a lawsuit that charges the industry veteran was lied to, ostracized and even physically threatened during his short tenure at the crippled film company.
Fields’ suit against Kavanaugh charges that Relativity “operated closer to the cantina scene in Star Wars than a normal production company,” and that Kavanaugh “grossly exaggerated and misrepresented Relativity’s financial outlook and its ability to produce films.”
The company emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy last April, but has struggled to raise capital and to produce or release films. Mostly employees were furloughed over the holidays and not brought back after the New Year. Kavanaugh and Dana Brunetti, who he hired to oversee the film operation, have both reportedly stepped away from their executive positions at the Beverly Hills-based company.

New pictures from Baby Driver have landed. Can a trailer be far away?
Release date shuffles have meant that we’re not going to see Edgar Wright’s first feature film since The World’s End, Baby Driver, until August 18th of this year. But the movie, one we’re eagerly awaiting, has been the beneficiary of some early publicity work.

Sony has released a pair of new pictures from the film, that you can see nice and big by clicking on the gallery thingy at the top there. We do wonder if this means that a trailer for the film is getting closer. The movie is all but done, and Star Wars: Episode VIII director Rian Johnson for one saw a cut of it back in August. It prompted him to Tweet the following…

Here’s the first look at Baby Driver, the new movie from Sony Pictures which is due to hit our cinema screens in the summer. Baby Driver is an action movie which sees a young getaway driver actually named ‘Baby’ (Ansel Elgort – Shailene Woodley‘s geeky brother Caleb in the Divergent movies) fall in love with Downton Abbey / Cinderella’s Lily James and attempt to turn away from his life of crime.
It’s not too long however before crime boss (Kevin Spacey) forces him return to the life he’s so desperately trying to leave behind. The movie sounds like many we’ve seen before but with a cast this prominent, it’s hard not to get excited about it. And did we mention that Edgar Wright has written and directed? That makes it all very much more interesting right?! Very excited to see what the »

Power-hungry robots and a group of cool kids who battle a monster (and a whole bunch of mouth-breathers) are nominated for the 2017 Producers Guild Awards. The TV nominees were announced Thursday and include the debut seasons of HBO's popular sci-fi drama Westworld, which starred Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood and depicted a Western theme park of androids, and Netflix's breakout sci-fi hit Stranger Things, which starred Millie Bobby Brown as the enigmatic girl Eleven. Nominations were also given to past nominees House of Cards, Netflix's political drama starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, and Better Caul Saul, the Breaking Bad »
“Westworld” and “Stranger Things” both broke into the drama series race. The two will contend for the prize at the Jan. 28 ceremony against HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the reigning Emmy winner for drama series and the PGA’s 2016 pick, AMC’s “Better Call Saul” and Netflix’s “House of Cards.”
“Atlanta” was the sole newbie in the comedy series heat. Donald Glover’s auteur comedy will face off against HBO’s “Silicon Valley” and “Veep” (which has scored back-to-back Emmy wins the past two years) and ABC’s “Black-ish” and “Modern Family.” Amazon’s “Transparent” took the comedy prize last year.

My World Of Flops is Nathan Rabin’s survey of books, television shows, musical releases, or other forms of entertainment that were financial flops, critical failures, or lack a substantial cult following.
To a certain extent, the Kevin Spacey-as-sassy-feline comedy Nine Lives was screwed by timing. Considering the political climate of the past year and a half, there has never been a worse time to ask a mass audience to become emotionally invested in the spiritual growth of an arrogant, hyper-masculine, hyper-competitive New York billionaire intent on sticking his name on the biggest building in the world. True, Spacey’s character, Tom Brand, is overtly based on Richard Branson. A good rule of thumb for cinematic billionaires: If they’re introduced doing a crazy stunt, then they’re based on Branson. If their defining character is dumb hair, they’re likely to be modeled after the president-elect.

Relativity Media’s fade out continued this week, as the bulk of the company’s employees were told that an unpaid furlough that began over the two-week winter holiday will continue indefinitely, according to two people familiar with the operation.
Only a handful of workers remain at the entertainment firm that had already pared its staff to less than 30, those sources said. Relativity once aspired to be a “360-degree global media platform” that could compete with Hollywood’s big studios.
The news comes in the wake of other signs of Relativity’s decline, eight months after its bankruptcy reorganization; CEO Ryan Kavanaugh and President Dana Brunetti signaled just before the holidays that they would step down from daily duties. And, this week, the company laid off roughly 40 workers who staffed its joint distribution operation with EuropaCorp.
There is wide speculation in Hollywood that Relativity will cease operating either by liquidating »
