Taraji P. Henson Says Role Written for Her in St. Vincent Went to Naomi Watts

12 October 2016 8:14 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

She’s an acclaimed actress with a Golden Globe trophy and an Oscar nomination under her belt. But Taraji P. Henson says she’s faced a twofold battle in Hollywood — for diversity in projects, and for equitable pay.

The actress has written a memoir titled Around the Way Girl, and in it she opens up about losing highly coveted roles due to what she characterizes as movie executives’ tunnel vision in casting actors of color.

In one instance, in excerpts published by USA Today, Henson claims that a character in the 2014 comedy-drama St. Vincent was written specifically for her — but »

Taraji P. Henson Says She Was Paid ‘Sofa Change’ Compared to Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett on ‘Benjamin Button’

11 October 2016 4:29 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Taraji P. Henson’s memoir “Around the Way Girl” was released today. Among the many topics broached by the actress is her experience on David Fincher’s “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” which netted her critical acclaim and a richly deserved Academy Award nomination but paid far less than she had hoped. Henson calls her financial compensation for the David Fincher–directed drama “the equivalent of sofa change” compared to the princely sums bestowed upon Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.

Ocean's Eight Gets a Summer 2018 Release Date

6 October 2016 6:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With its cast now in place for the highly-anticipated Ocean's Eight, Warner Bros. has set a June 8, 2018 release date for this project. This new all-female reboot will square off against what could be a huge summer blockbuster, Paramount's Transformers 6, while also arriving two weeks before Disney and LucasFilm's Star Wars spin-off centering on Han Solo. It will also open one week before Disney Pixar's long-awaited Toy Story 4 and two weeks before Universal's Jurassic World 2.

Entertainment Weekly reported on the release date last night, although there are still no plot details that have surfaced yet. We last reported on the project this past August, when it was revealed that production is being eyed to begin in October. We still don't have an exact production start date yet, but with the main cast members in place, filming could begin any day now. Jennifer Lawrence was previously eyed for a role, but she »

Newswire: The con is on as Ocean’s Eight gets a release date

6 October 2016 6:34 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

With its crew of beautiful miscreants now in place—and a place for its heist—Ocean’s Eight is set to get one over on audiences in about two years (it’s a long con, we guess). According to Variety, the all-female Ocean’s Eleven spin-off has nabbed a June 8, 2018 release date. Sandra Bullock was the first actor to join the project. She’ll play the ex-con sister of ex-con Danny Ocean, who leads her own team of takers that includes Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, and Awkwafina (real name Nora Lum). Ocean’s Eleven trilogy helmer Steven Soderbergh is set to executive produce with director Gary Ross, who co-wrote the script.

With this announcement, the cinematic caper will be locked in a battle of tangential properties, as the Transformers all-Bumblebee spin-off is also slated for a June 8, 2018 premiere ...

James Horner's 25 most magnificent scores

6 October 2016 2:37 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sean Wilson Oct 11, 2016

From Star Trek and Field Of Dreams to The Rocketeer and Krull: we salute the film scores of the late, great James Horner.

When composer James Horner died in a plane crash in June 2015, cinema lost one of its most profoundly emotional voices, and the final chapter on Horner's astonishing career has now closed with his last work: Antoine Fuqua's Western remake The Magnificent Seven. Horner actually wrote the score based on the script before the film even started production, such was his passion for it, and it's been posthumously completed by his longtime collaborator Simon Franglen.

To mark the occasion, here are the 25 most seminal scores from a lamented, legendary figure of film music.

1. Legends Of The Fall (1994)

Despite his reputation as a composer of melodrama, throughout much of the eighties and early nineties Horner had largely been pegged as a bold composer of action, »

The Weekend Warrior 10/7/16: The Girl on a Train, Birth of a Nation, Middle School, Newtown

5 October 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out. 

This Past Weekend:   

Another bad weekend where nothing really popped, which is bad news for a month at the box office where only Clint Eastwood’s Sully exceeded any expectations.  Tim Burton’s new film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children came out just below my predictions with $29 million, but the Mark Wahlberg-Peter Berg disaster flick Deepwater Horizon was right around where I predicted with $20.2 million. The comedy Masterminds tanked with just $6.5 million for the weekend to end up in sixth place while Disney’s The Queen of Katwe did slightly better than predicted with $2.5 million.  

The first full weekend in October has a good deal of competition from the release of the video game Mafia III to the »

Rumour: Star-Lord will be a “major player” in Avengers: Infinity War

5 October 2016 2:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning: possible spoilers below…

It was confirmed a little while ago by Vin Diesel that the Guardians of the Galaxy will be appearing in Avengers: Infinity War as many had speculated, but we didn’t know just how much involvement they’d have considering the huge cast of characters. Well according to the chaps at Schmoes Know, one of them will be a “major player”.

The site is claiming that not all of the Guardians could feature in Avengers: Infinity War, with the rest of the crew joining in the fight for Avengers 4. However Star-Lord will be a part of the movie, and will be the first character from the group to interact with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. The site is unsure if Star-Lord will be coming to Earth, or if The Avengers will be going into space, but Chris Pratt will have a big role in the film.

Newswire: Mindy Kaling reveals the setting for the Ocean’s Eight caper

4 October 2016 7:51 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Mindy Kaling joined Stephen Colbert on The Late Show last night to shop for home goods as well as promote The Mindy Project, which just kicked off its fifth season. Kaling’s rom-com series hits its 100th episode this year, but the actress and author’s already gearing up for pulling off a heist in the all-female Ocean’s Eleven spin-off from Gary Ross. The Ocean’s Eight cast was rounded out this summer with the addition of Sarah Paulson to an ensemble that already included Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Awkafina, and of course, Kaling. It’s a star-studded cast, to be sure, but when asked what she brings to the team, Kaling sold herself a bit short.

Details about the film are being kept under wraps, of course, but Kaling did reveal that the caper will take place in New York City, presumably »

Rumoured plot details for Thor: Ragnarok including Valkyrie and Skurge’s involvement

4 October 2016 7:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

At this point, the only thing we know for certain about the plot for Thor: Ragnarok is that it will incorporate elements of the Planet Hulk storyline, and will presumably deviate enormously from the Ragnarok arc of the Thor comic books.

Well, the folks at Schmoes Know are claiming to have some details about the Phase Three threequel, and are reporting that the Ragnarok of the title actually refers to the planet where the movie will take place, which is said to have “a Gladiator meets Mad Max aesthetic.”

Potential spoilers follow, although this is of course unconfirmed at present…

So, according tot the site, while on the planet Ragnarok, Thor and The Hulk have to fight their way out of the arenas, which are run by The Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum). Here the two Avengers will also run into Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), who is also a contestant in the arenas, »
