“They were super cute together. Hugging. Kissing. Very happy, relaxed and just enjoying the night,” a fellow attendee told People. “They looked very much in love. It was nice to see!”

[[tmz:video id="0_uormwi5d"]] Very cool bonding moment between NBA star Chris Paul and a little girl in NYC ... when the kid told CP3 they both go to the same back doctor!

Oscars at the Halfway Mark: ‘Logan,’ ‘Get Out’ and Women Directors

22 June 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The year is half over and Oscar voters need to catch up on their homework. There have been many worthwhile films in the first six months of 2017, including “Get Out” from writer-director Jordan Peele (Universal, Blumhouse); “Logan,” the dark, tender neo-Western from director James Mangold (Fox); and the sumptuous mega-hit “Beauty and the Beast” (director Bill Condon, Disney).

A few years ago, these would have been extreme longshots, at best. But there have been changes in Academy voters and their tastes. Recent winners including “Moonlight,” “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Ex Machina” prove that voters are redefining what is considered “Oscar bait.” The blurred definition is a challenge to awards strategists, but good news for hopefuls.

Oscars: 13 Deserving Contenders From 2017 So Far

The January-June period has seen many other films with Oscar potential in various categories; see the accompanying reminders by Variety colleagues Kris Tapley and Jenelle Riley. And, needless to say, other contenders will be covered a lot before the March 4, 2018, Oscar ceremony.

Diversity has been a key theme. This year, several films directed by women could be in the mix, including Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled” (Focus Features), Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman” (Warner Bros.), and Aisling Walsh’s “Maudie” (Sony Pictures Classics). Still to come are works from Kathryn Bigelow (Annapurna’s much-buzzed “Detroit”), Dee Rees (Netflix’s “Mudbound”); Margaret Betts (Sony Classics’ “Novitiate”) and Angelina Jolie (Netflix’s “First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers”).

There are also upcoming works from international filmmakers like Sebastian Lelio, Alfonso Gomez-Rijon, Michael Gracey, Yorgos Lanthimos and Taika Waititi. They will join veterans including Guillermo del Toro, Alexander Payne, Stephen Frears, Richard Linklater, Steven Spielberg, George Clooney, Darren Aronofsky and Paul Thomas Anderson.

Here are month-by-month opening dates, followed by a list of films that made a splash at the year’s film festivals so far. And the upcoming festivals will also add a few twists to the Oscar race.

The director and stars are listed for purpose of jogging readers’ memories; it’s not a matter of handicapping, since it’s pointless to make predictions about films that have not been widely seen.

July: “War for the Planet of the Apes” (directed by Matt Reeves; starring Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson; Fox)

August: “Detroit” (Kathryn Bigelow; John Boyega; Annapurna); “Logan Lucky” (Steven Soderbergh; Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig; Bleecker Street); “Patty Cake$” (Geremy Jasper; Danielle Macdonald; Searchlight); “Wind River” (Taylor Sheridan; Elizabeth Olsen; The Weinstein Co.).

September: “American Made” (Doug Liman; Tom Cruise; Universal); “Battle of the Sexes” (Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris; Emma Stone, Steve Carell; Fox Searchlight); “First They Killed My Father” (Angelina Jolie; Netflix); “Victoria and Abdul” (Stephen Frears; Judi Dench; Focus).

Cannes Winning Best Actor and Lanthimos' Quirky 'Family' Thriller Academy Award Chances?

20 June 2017 7:38 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'120 Beats per Minute' trailer: Robin Campillo's AIDS movie features plenty of drama and a clear sociopolitical message. AIDS drama makes Pedro Almodóvar cry – but will Academy members tear up? (See previous post re: Cannes-Oscar connection.) In case France submits it to the 2018 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, screenwriter-director Robin Campillo's AIDS drama 120 Beats per Minute / 120 battements par minute, about the Paris Act Up chapter in the early 1990s, could quite possibly land a nomination. The Grand Prix (Cannes' second prize), international film critics' Fipresci prize, and Queer Palm winner offers a couple of key ingredients that, despite its gay sex scenes, should please a not insignificant segment of the Academy membership: emotionalism and a clear sociopolitical message. When discussing the film after the presentation of the Palme d'Or, Pedro Almodóvar (and, reportedly, jury member Jessica Chastain) broke into tears. Some believed, in fact, that 120 Beats per Minute »

Jude Law Needs Fewer Soulless Blockbusters and More Iconoclasts Like Paolo Sorrentino’s ‘The Young Pope’

19 June 2017 11:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Jude Law, who’s always been hard to pin down, and his title role in HBO Emmy Contender “The Young Pope” is no exception. 

Bottom Line: As he embraces his mid-40s, Jude Law has morphed from British golden boy to globally bankable character actor. His range is wide, from tragic robot Gigolo Joe in Steven Spielberg’s “A.I.” to Robert Downey, Jr.’s comedy sidekick Dr. Watson in Guy Ritchie’s blockbuster “Sherlock Holmes” franchise. Still stunningly handsome, Law is gaining grit and gravitas as he gets older. But there’s a sense he’s still holding back.

Political Turmoil Juices Late-Night Comedy

19 June 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One of the most emotional and heartfelt moments seen this season wasn’t on a fictional program; it aired close to midnight when Jimmy Kimmel revealed his newborn son’s health struggle. On May 1, the typically jovial host was often near tears, yet somehow also managed to make audiences laugh with asides like, “Even that son of a bitch Matt Damon sent flowers.” It was raw, real and one of the most memorable moments in the show’s 14-year-run.

It was also very political, as it ended with an impassioned plea to ensure health care for all. Some late-night shows make a point to avoid politics, but this season that’s proven an impossible task. If there is any silver lining to the debacle taking place in the U.S. government, it’s that what’s bad for the country has been good for comedy. “Saturday Night Live” has flourished thanks largely to its hilarious sketches featuring »

‘The Great Wall’ Blu-ray 3D Review

16 June 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Matt Damon, Willem Dafoe, Pedro Pascal, Tian Jing, Andy Lau, Hanyu Zhang, Han Lu, Kenny Lin, Eddie Peng, Xuan Huang, Ryan Zheng | Written by Carlo Bernard, Doug Miro, Tony Gilroy | Directed by Yimou Zhang

Magnificent, breath-taking spectacle. A glorious, gorgeous testament to mankind’s creativity. Looks really good in 3D. All of this and more can be used to describe The Great Wall of China. The Great Wall of filmmaker Zhang Yimou, however, is another thing entirely.

Following the intense furore surrounding the creation and marketing of The Great Wall, the film itself is here for all to see and judge. Erasure? White saviour trope: the movie? The Great Wall of China with a coat of whitewashing? As it turns out, not quite, but that’s not to say the movie is without its problems.

The great face of The Great Wall’s controversies is Matt Damon, cast as brooding mercenary William Garin. »

Fox and Paramount Forge Unique Distribution Partnership in Italy

16 June 2017 5:27 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – 20th Century Fox Film Intl. and Paramount Pictures Intl. have forged a unique distribution partnership in Italy under which Fox will release Paramount titles in the country starting in September.

The unusual deal makes Italy the only territory in the world where Fox releases Paramount product. Paramount titles previously went out in Italy via Universal.

It comes a few months after former 20th Century Fox chief Jim Gianopulos took over as Paramount Pictures chairman and CEO.

When he was at Fox, Gianopulous was known to have a close rapport with former Fox Italia chief Osvaldo De Santis, who built a formidable distribution machine in the country. De Santis stepped down last year after more than 30 years at the helm and was replaced in November by Paul Zonderland (pictured), a former head of Disney in Italy.

'The Bourne Identity': THR's 2002 Review

13 June 2017 11:24 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On June 14, 2002, Doug Liman and Matt Damon's thriller The Bourne Identity hit theaters, kick-starting an action franchise that has spanned five films so far. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below: 

Mired as we are in a world of finger-pointing between the CIA and FBI over ignored terrorist threats and holding our collective breath over unimaginable wars on the Indian subcontinent and in the Middle East, it's refreshing to relax in the purely fictional realm of a slick espionage thriller like The Bourne Identity.

‘Kimmel’ Comedy Zone: Where Hollywood Late-Night Gags Are Born

12 June 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Since its inception in 2003, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has taped at the old Hollywood Masonic Temple on Hollywood Boulevard — now known as the El Capitan Entertainment Center, for the movie theater next door. The entire complex is owned by ABC parent the Walt Disney Co., hence the reason why only Disney films screen at the movie house. Above the movie theater are offices for the show’s staff, including head writers Molly McNearney and Danny Ricker. So if you go see “Cars 3” this summer on Hollywood Boulevard, there’s a chance that you’ll do so as Kimmel’s team sits above you, crafting the latest Matt Damon diss.

Among Ricker’s most prized possessions is a vinyl copy of the “Back to the Future” soundtrack signed by Huey Lewis and Michael J. Fox — sort of. “They signed the plastic cover, which is why it doesn’t look very nice in the frame, because »

Football betting tips courtesy of the movies

9 June 2017 1:53 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The film world has often been attracted to the world of gambling and sports betting in particular. From gambling in the likes of Casino, Martin Scorsese’s award-winning Casino back in 1995 to poker action with Matt Damon in the exceptional Rounders three years later in 1998, cinema is infatuated with betting.

One thing that it hasn’t touched up that much is sports betting, and in particular soccer betting, but it has shown up in a couple of films in recent memory. The first is the Matthew McConaughey and Al Pacino film Two For The Money. The film is written by Dan Gilroy, who would later go on to make the Jake Gyllenhaal movie Nightcrawler, and was directed by D.J. Caruso (xXx: Return Of Xander Cage).

‘Billions’ Writers Get Creative in Village Digs

8 June 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The action on “Billions” takes place on Wall Street, but the masterminds of the Showtime drama are more comfortable working out of digs in the West Village. Brian Koppelman and David Levien, co-creators and showrunners, haven’t been in the space for long, but there are a few cherished mementos representing their partnership.

The Wild West

Koppelman and Levien met as teenagers — Brian was 16, David was 14½ — when they were sent on a summer bus tour of the American West. “That was the summer the two of us became like brothers,” Koppelman says. In a Jackson Hole, Wyo., tourist trap, after knowing each other a week, the two donned Old West garb and props for a sepia-tone photo that has survived the years. Levien points out that Koppelman is pointing a gun at him. “I don’t think the two guys in that picture ever imagined that hanging out would become our job,” Koppelman »

The Greatest Election Movies

Author: Linda Marric

With American primaries and presidential elections lasting sometimes up to 18 months, it’s no wonder Hollywood cannot seem to get enough of campaign-trail dramas. From quirky comedies, to serious thrillers based on real events, there seems to be an infinite amount of scripts and stories to tell, each offering a different angle on the subject of electoral shenanigans and political intrigue.

The UK may not do elections on the same mammoth scale as its American cousins, but like it or not, right now we do not seem to go more than a year without one major political race or another.  With a surprise general election taking place today what better time for us to take a look at some of the most memorable films about elections ever made?

8 Reasons We Never Want to Be Friends With George Clooney, Matt Damon, or Brad Pitt

7 June 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Being friends with Matt Damon, George Clooney, and Brad Pitt might look fun, but it also seems extremely dangerous. While all three are Hollywood legends in their own right, the series of pranks the Ocean's Eleven costars have been pulling on one another for over 15 years are on a whole new level. During a recent interview with E! News, Matt actually revealed that George has slowed his roll when it comes to practical jokes now that he's going to be a dad, because "he's got a full-time job and a full-time family." Luckily we've been keeping track of all the antics George, Matt, and Brad (especially) have gotten up to.

While there are some people who don’t give a great deal of credence to the skill level and talent necessary to become a successful action hero in Hollywood, the truth is that those who have held the throne as the leading action hero have also been well respected actors considered to have remarkable range.
