What happened, Kurt Russell?! The 64-year-old actor was spotted out in New Orleans yesterday with bloody cuts and bruises all over his face and arms. Goldie Hawn's other half looked injured and, frankly, much worse for wear while strolling around in casual sweatpants, sandals and a gray T-shirt. Russell also donned messy hair with a few bandages over his cheeks and forehead. So what's the story behind Russell's cuts and bruises? Happily, it turns out he's not actually hurtin'. It's just movie makeup for his role in the upcoming Deepwater Horizon, which is currently filming in Louisiana. In fact, Kate Hudson is also in the flick with her step-dad, making for a family »

The Weinstein Company’s chief operating officer David Glasser has resigned after seven years at the independent studio.
Glasser said he’s leaving the company in search of a new opportunity. He will stay on to find a replacement as TWC prepares for awards season.
“It has been an incredible run at the Weinstein Company, but I have decided to take some time and explore my options in the industry,” Glasser said in a statement. “I will remain with TWC until November, where I will work closely with our team to set up the incredible slate for 2015/2016.”
Bob and Harvey Weinstein said in a statement that they were “disappointed” to hear of Glasser’s decision. “He has been one of the best executives we’ve had the privilege of working with and we have had a tremendous run together,” the Weinsteins said in a statement. “David will be missed at TWC, »

From Fast & Furious to the Avengers, Terminator and Jurassic World, the trend for ridiculously over-complicated storylining is out of control this year. Is it time for a purge?
Forty-five minutes into the seventh Fast & Furious movie, Vin Diesel drives towards a huge precipice. The audience have only the faintest idea why he’s there. Ditto why they have paraglided their cars into Azerbaijan. Is it Azerbaijan? It’s probably to rescue someone … who was it again? Something to do with a surveillance gizmo means they need to find their nemesis Jason Statham, except Statham seems to find them whenever he wants, being the one about to push Diesel off the cliff, not the random mercenaries they’re nicking the device from. Only Kurt Russell – who’s watching everything from his covert-ops unit and chatting about craft ale – seems to understand what the hell is going on.

Star Wars famously takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, and this week we found out about a parallel universe of casting in the film series. Neil Calloway looks at the actors who didn’t star in films, but could have…
The news that Michael Jackson wanted to play Jar Jar Binks in the Star Wars prequels is bizarre, and I can’t quite decide whether he would have improved the character or completely ruined the franchise with his appearance. Perhaps the most interesting part is that Jackson wanted the character to be created with make up and prosthetics – he worked with make up genius Rick Baker on the video for Thriller – rather than the CGI preferred by Lucas. There are many, many issues with the Star Wars prequels, but one of them is the over reliance on computer effects on practical effects. So maybe »

Something goes bump in the shadows of the small-town setting of Dark Was the Night, the new horror film from Jack Heller (Enter Nowhere) that stars Kevin Durand and Lukas Haas. With Dark Was the Night now in theaters and on VOD from Image Entertainment, we caught up via Q&A with director Heller, who discussed blending creature-centric scares with psychological tension and much more.
Jack Heller: The script Tyler crafted laid the foundation of opportunity to explore characters dealing with both external horrors and internal ones. When I came onto the project I was excited to work with Tyler to bring these elements to the surface of the script and ultimately the film we made. »

Several weeks on from the release of "Terminator Genisys," Paramount is reportedly taking a wait and see approach regarding the Terminator franchise. Reviews for the new film were dire, and domestically the film has only nabbed $81 million.
Globally it has proven better, with $278 million so far and the lucrative China box-office market still to come, but even so - the numbers aren't good enough for Paramount to be rushing forward with a follow-up. A source tells THR: "We will definitely need to see the holds globally to confirm that people like the film."
As the rights revert to James Cameron in 2019, the plan was to film the next two movies back-to-back to get them done in time, but that may no longer be a viable option anymore. Don't expect a decision either way until later in the year.

Another San Diego Comic-Con International has come and gone. This year was a great year for films, friends, and fun! Check out my Top 10 cinematic moments from this years con. Also, be sure to share your favorite moments from this year. I’d love to hear from you! Now, let’s get started!
Let me start off by saying that I have not been looking forward to this film. I’m not stoked on the new batsuit, and disagree with their casting of Lex Luthor, simply because I feel as though the character should be older. Having said that, this is the best trailer that I have seem thus far, and I really hope that they prove me wrong. Check out the all new trailer that debuted in Hall H and let me know what you think!

Fast & Furious 7 surprised everyone when it became one of the highest-grossing movies of all time earlier this year, which obviously means an eighth instalment is on its way.
Furious 8 will be released worldwide on April 14, 2017, but fans are already searching for the latest updates. So here's everything we know so far, with the newest information right at the top...
Could Eva Mendes make a long-awaited return?
Monica was a main character in 2 Fast 2 Furious, but made a post-credits cameo in Fast Five. Reports claim that she might team up with Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Dom (Vin Diesel) to take on a new villain in New York. »
Every time Quentin Tarantino makes another idiosyncratic movie, I think, "this time, it will just be for the cinephile crowd." And each time I have been wrong--except for his contribution to the 2007 double header "Grindhouse," "Death Proof," starring Kurt Russell. When the Weinstein Co. took Tarantino's "Django Unchained" to the San Diego convention in 2012, Tarantino wowed the Con with footage and did so again this year with his new western "The Hateful Eight," with a specially edited 7-minute piece of celluloid projected on the huge Hall H screen in glorious 70 mm. Tarantino started with a Weinstein promo reel narrated by Hall H no-show Samuel L. Jackson designed to sell the virtues of 70 mm and the road show format that was once widely used by the Hollywood studios to take an anticipated new film from city to city with extras before it went broader. (In this case the movie will be »

Listen, there's nothing wrong with finding love on the set of a TV show or movie - lots of stars have done it, whether it was with another actor, a producer or director, or even a member of the crew - but there are a handful of celebrities who seem to exclusively date people they've worked with on screen. While some of the relationships have worked out (see: Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, and Jenna Dewan Tatum and Channing Tatum), most stars have had to learn the hard way that mixing work and play isn't always the best move. Keep reading for 18 stars who have dated more than three of their costars over the years. »
