Newswire: Now that Uncle Buck is dead, Mike Epps has a Death Wish

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

Now that ABC has snuffed the life from Uncle Buck with a snap of its fingers, it seems Mike Epps might be looking for a chance to exact some payback. Empire reports the comedian and actor has joined the cast of upcoming revenge-thriller remake Death Wish, possibly hoping director Eli Roth might cast a few network execs as cannon fodder in the film. (Of course, maybe Roth has already cast a studio exec in that role as a favor to writer and ex-helmer of the project Joe Carnahan, to help him get some closure with the “gutless turd” and “dumb cunt” who disapproved of Carnahan’s casting choices.)

The film, set to star famed paycheck-casher Bruce Willis, details the story of a grieving father (Willis) who sets out to avenge the violence visited upon his family with a little violence of his own. With Vincent D’Onofrio and Dean Norris »

‘Marvel’s Luke Cage’ Proves That ‘Heroes Can Wear Hoodies Too’

20 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Luke Cage doesn’t want to be your hero, and Marvel doesn’t want to be political, but frankly, they can’t help but be both in Netflix’s well-timed “Luke Cage.”

With his super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke can’t be harmed by anyone — not any thug, criminal or cop. The invulnerable superhero emerges amidst today’s racially charged political climate in which the nation is divided over police shootings of unarmed black men and the corresponding #BlackLivesMatter movement.

“This is really an era in which it’s a fascinating time to have a bulletproof black man that exists in the world,” showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker said during interviews at Comic-Con.

Death Wish Remake Casts Comedian Mike Epps

21 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Comedian and actor Mike Epps has climbed aboard Eli Roth’s Death Wish remake, joining the likes of Bruce Willis, Vincent D’Onofrio and Breaking Bad‘s Dean Norris.

First reported by Deadline, the outlet confirmed earlier today that Epps – best known for The Hangover, Fifty Shades of Black and Uncle Buck – will assume the part of Dr. Chris Salgado, a playboy doctor and close friend to Willis’ Paul Kersey. Very much considered to be the anchor point of MGM and Paramount’s redo, Death Wish will open at a time when Kersey’s entire livelihood “has been destroyed by a violent crime against his wife and daughter. Frustrated that the bad guys for the crime were never brought to justice, Kersey starts hunting them down.” Not bad for a mild-mannered New York City architect.

Eli Roth's remake of Death Wish has added yet another veteran actor to its cast. Comedian Mike Epps has joined the movie as Dr. Chris Salgadoa, a friend to Bruce Willis, who is playing Paul Kersey, the lead in the movie. It seems as though he will be playing a character that didn't appear in the original 1974 Death Wish movie.

Deadline broke the news that Mike Epps will be joining the remake, which appears to be getting closer to production as they have recently added a lot more talent to the cast. Vincent D'Onofrio and Dean Norris also recently joined Death Wish. The project finally got going when director Eli Roth came aboard along with Bruce Willis, playing a role originally portrayed by Charles Bronson. Prior to boarding Death Wish, Eli Roth had been attached to direct the giant shark movie Meg, but he exited the project and found »

8 Celebrities Who Bared Their Breasts for a Cause (Photos)

Go Topless Day Kim Kardashian and Emily Ratajkowski doffed their tops, painting the fleshy twofer as a statement on feminism — though Piers Morgan, for one, wasn’t buying that explanation.   Model Naomi Campbell posted a topless photo of herself on Instagram last year, aligning herself with the #FreeTheNipple movement.   Scout Willis, the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, bared her breasts through Brooklyn to protest Instagram’s censoring policy. “What I am arguing for is a woman’s right to choose how she represents her body,” Willis declared.

20 Former Couples Who Prove You Can Be Friends With an Ex

25 September 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

We can probably all agree that staying friends with an ex isn't the easiest thing in the world to do, whether you're famous or not. While many high-profile breakups (and divorces in particular) can get nasty, there are a handful of former couples who have managed to put any animosity aside for the sake of their children, families, or just each other. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin told the world that they were "consciously uncoupling" while on a tropical vacation together, and have been spotted on dinner dates and family trips since their split. Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom announced that they amicably separated after three years of marriage, and just days later we saw the couple, with their son Flynn, sharing a sweet smooch. Even long-divorced couples like Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz, and Mick and Bianca Jagger have been able to remain civil »

Rolling Stone's Top 100 TV show: Three mistakes and three oversights

23 September 2016 2:38 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Rolling Stone just issued their list of the 'Top 100 Television Shows of All Time.' The rankings, which came from a survey of actors, writers, critics, and producers, includes all the shows you’d expect like Seinfeld, The Simpsons, The Sopranos. And a bunch of other programs that don’t start with the letter “S.” It’s a pretty comprehensive list and a reminder of how many great shows there have been even before what we’re now calling the Golden Age of television. Like any “top” anything list, there’s controversy. And we’re more than happy to dive into that topic. One thing we didn’t do is re-rank everything. If we did that, we’d be here forever and you wouldn’t want to read any further. So rather than that, we’ve just picked three shows that made the list that shouldn’t have and three replacements to fill those gaps. »

‘Captain America’ Conquers DVD, Blu-ray Disc Sales Charts

22 September 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Captain America: Civil War,” the latest Marvel Studios superhero blockbuster, shot straight to the top of both national home video sales charts upon its release last week.

The third “Captain America” film rode its $408.1 domestic theatrical gross to a No. 1 debut on both Npd VideoScan’s overall disc sales chart and dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart for the week ended Sept. 18.

The 13th entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe line is one of those rare sequels with a bigger theatrical take than either of its two predecessors. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier: (2014) earned $260 million, while the original 2011 “Captain America: The First Avenger” made $177 million.

The horror sequel “The Conjuring 2,” from Warner, debuted at a distant No. 2 on the overall disc sales chart, selling just 10% as many copies as “Captain America.”

Cool heads and hands are required in pastry week, aka the great British flake off. Can the contestants handle it, dough?

It’s been an hour since I ate anything, so I have to go, like, now. But thank you all for being so much fun to play with down below. I mean that in the most suggestive way possible!

I shall be on Inspect A Gadget duties as usual, and please say hi on the tweeter or the Instant Gran. Heidi, who’s been baking herself on the Costa del Crime, will be back next week, funnier than ever. Don’t tell her I broke everything.

9.02pm BST

We’ll never see that amalgam of nanny mimsiness and sharp-edged psycho in the tent again. She was one of a kind. We salute you Val! It was, as people have pointed out below, a good innings. Pleased for Candice too. »

Kathy Bates Reveals Her Toughest Role, Looks Back on Career Ahead of Walk of Fame Honor

20 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Kathy Bates receives her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Sept. 20, the moment will hold much significance. “It’s a big deal to me,” the Oscar winner admits. “It’s going to be right in front of the TLC Chinese Theatre. I just discovered that and kept asking, ‘Are you sure?’”

Bates adds that this is meaningful to her for several reasons. “I have a photograph from around 1956 with my Aunt Lee, right in front of the theater,” Bates says of the location, which was then known as Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. “She and my grandmother lived out here and we came often to visit them, driving cross-country from Memphis.” Bates can recall spending the day with her mother’s sister, having tea at Bullock’s department store, and walking around the theater. Her aunt died of breast cancer over 40 years ago, but Bates holds her memory dear. »

‘The Bonfire of the Vanities’: Brian De Palma’s Boisterous Satire of American Society

14 September 2016 10:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Brian De Palma’s screen adaptation of Tom Wolfe’s The Bonfire of the Vanities was panned by critics and audiences alike in the months and years following its 1990 release, but it doesn’t deserve this kind of flak. In telling the story of a Wall Street bigwig (Tom Hanks) whose life gets upended after his mistress runs over a black teenager in the South Bronx, the movie offers a wicked satire of racial politics in America that deserves to be mentioned alongside Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing, which hit theaters just 17 months earlier. Granted, Lee’s classic emerges the markedly superior film because, unlike The Bonfire of the Vanities, its characters transcend their function as caricatures to become nuanced individuals. Still, De Palma’s confident, hilarious polemic is a formidable achievement, hitting places that hurt in 1990 and, sadly, continue to hurt today. That the film feels like »

The early screenplays of Jj Abrams

Mark Harrison Sep 13, 2016

Before he hit big with Star Wars and Star Trek, Jj Abrams was penning films such as Forever Young, Regarding Henry and Armageddon...

Jj Abrams is one of the most powerful people in Hollywood right now. Over his career in the movies, he's written, directed, produced, acted and played a wicked keyboard solo on Cool Guys Don't Look At Explosions, and through his production company Bad Robot, his name is counted among the credits of massive franchises like Cloverfield, Mission: Impossible, Star Trek and of course Star Wars. He's more of a household name than most filmmakers of his generation and we sometimes wish we wanted anything as much as he wants that Steven Spielberg status.

You can't blame him when you hear about his first paid job in the film industry. Returning a bunch of Spielberg's personal super-8 home movies that he discovered after his »

Norman: the Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer review – Richard Gere ups his game in iffy film

5 September 2016 3:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The actor gives a strong performance as a desperate social climber in this fractured drama that works best as a flawed character study

Quietly and usually without much of an audience, Richard Gere is having a bit of a moment. Unlike his similarly aged peers Liam Neeson and Bruce Willis, he’s rejected the senior stuntman route and instead made the decision to embrace his older self, taking on roles that are reliant on his age, often uncomfortably so. In Time Out of Mind, he played a homeless man struggling to reconnect with his estranged daughter, in The Benefactor he was an unhinged philanthropist making amends for his tortured past and, well, he even joined the cast of The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

Bruce Willis & Hayden Christensen team up for generically-titled First Kill

Man, I want a Bruce Willis who gives a shit back. It's not like he can't still give a great performance (just look at the recent Moonrise Kingdom). It's just that he seems content to do basically two-day walk-ons in Rebox action movies while half-comatose. Even during action scenes he seems bored. This brings us to First Kill, which also stars Hayden Christensen. The... Read More »
