‘Jokes About Assassination Aren’t Funny’: Twitter Reacts to Johnny Depp's Controversial Comments About Trump

23 June 2017 7:46 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Johnny Depp is coming under fire for his remarks about President Donald Trump.

The actor appeared at the Glastonbury Festival in England on Thursday, where he alluded to a presidential assassination.

While on stage to introduce a screening of his 2004 film The Libertine, Depp, 54, asked the crowd whether Trump could attend the festival. When the crowd started booing, he said, “No, no, no, you misunderstood completely. I think he needs … help,” and added: “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”

Depp was likely alluding to President Lincoln’s assassination in 1865 at the hands of actor John Wilkes Booth. »

Update: Actor expresses contrition after White House condemns remarks as ‘sad’.

Update: Johnny Depp has apologised after he made comments on the assassination of a Us president at Glastonbury Festival on Thursday.

The actor told People magazine his remarks were in poor taste after the White House issued a statement condemning his words.

“It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice,” Depp said on Friday. “I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone.”

The day before, as he appeared on stage prior to a screening of his 2004 film The Libertine, Depp had said: “Can you bring Trump here?”

After sections of the crowd booed, the actor went on to say: “You misunderstand completely. When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”

Depp then added: “I want to clarify…I’m not an actor. I lie for a living [but] it’s been a while. Maybe it’s about »

Update: Actor apologises after White House condemns comments as ‘sad’.

Update: Johnny Depp has apologised following he commented on the assassination of a Us president at Glastonbury musical festival on Thursday.

The actor told People magazine his remakes were in poor taste after the White House condemned his remarks regarding Us president Donald Trump.

Appearing on stage prior to a screening of his 2004 film The Libertine last Thursday, Depp said: “Can you bring Trump here?”

9 June 2017 12:22 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

But apparently not everyone thought it was a great idea, even among those who support Trump. Actor and vocal conservative James Woods hit up Twitter on Friday to offer some counsel to the chief executive about using Twitter. Or, rather, not using Twitter.

The tweet offered a number of suggestions for news that would break between 5 and 6 p.m. on Thursday, with the final option being, “Donald Trump announces he is now Donna Trump.” Also Read: James Woods. »

James Woods Says ‘Age Discrimination’ Was Reason for Bill O’Reilly ‘Purge’

20 April 2017 1:32 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Time will tell how Bill O’Reilly’s exit from Fox News Channel will affect the channel’s ratings, but Fox appears to have lost a viewer in James Woods. Actor and vocal conservative Woods tore into Fox on Thursday, saying that the channel is “becoming the sister network” to CNN. Woods also asserted that O’Reilly’s exit was the result of “age discrimination,” rather than the scandalous accusations that have plagued O’Reilly. Or the massive advertiser exodus that occurred after those accusations heated up earlier this month. Also Read: Chrissy Teigen Trolls Bill O'Reilly Hard After Fox News »

Celebrate National Canadian Film Day with six essential Canadian filmsCelebrate National Canadian Film Day with six essential Canadian filmsAdriana Floridia4/19/2017 11:42:00 Am

Today is National Canadian Film Day and there's no better way to celebrate than by watching Canadian movies!

Canadian films are largely underrated, but there are tons of filmmakers, both new and old, that are resurrecting the Canadian film scene. While Quebec has always had a strong presence in the film-making world, with directors like Xavier Dolan, Denis Villeneuve and Jean Marc Vallee constantly doing us proud, there's also a lot of great efforts from the English-speaking Canadian film realm, that we often forget about. Legends like David Cronenberg, Deepa Mehta and Guy Maddin have always made distinct, challenging work, and there's a new emerging scene--from the more established filmmakers like Jason Reitman and Sarah Polley, to a new crop of directors like Matt Johnson and Andrew Cividino. »

19 Interesting Facts About the Movie Casino

18 April 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

When you make a film as unbelievably good as Goodfellas, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with repackaging it, moving it out to Vegas, and making it about running a Casino.   That’s essentially what Martin Scorsese’s movie Casino did.   Only in this case he removed Ray Liotta and Paul Sorvino and replaced them with the likes of Sharon Stone and James Woods.   Is the movie the same as Gooodfellas?  Definitely not.  But it reminds me of how David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook) keeps recycling his favorite actors into movies.   Oddly enough, Robert De Niro is in Russell’s films as well. While

Kendall Jenner Shredded for Silence on Pepsi Ad After Return to Twitter

13 April 2017 12:10 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Silence apparently isn’t golden for Kendall Jenner — at least when it comes to her silence over her much-reviled Pepsi ad. “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” personality Jenner returned to Twitter on Thursday, little more than a week after Pepsi pulled her ad amid widespread outrage, but she wasn’t about to open that can of soda to discuss the matter. Instead, Jenner logged on to promote her cover appearance on the 150th anniversary issue of Harper’s Bazaar — and her critics were quick to call her out on it.

Toronto: The Cinematic City

13 April 2017 5:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The most populous city in Canada has appeared on-screen in many different ways over the years.Enemy (2013)

There are many ways in which cities are portrayed in cinema. Sometimes cities are anonymous and nameless, and sometimes cities become characters in the films they are portrayed in. Cities can be merely incidental settings, or the specific locations within a city can be incredibly important both narratively and visually. The people within a city tend to represent the place itself: how they act, how they dress, where they work, how they speak, and what they eat. All of these things can be related to the place they live. Cities are home to an infinite multitude of experiences — people from different places, with different families, different wants and desires and identities.

There are cities that are frequently remembered as being iconic within the world of cinema. Paris, Rome, New York, Venice, Chicago, and London have all received loving portraits in »
