Judge Asked to Disqualify Universal's Law Firm From 'Straight Outta Compton' Suit

25 April 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

After a brief pause, thanks to the death of the plaintiff, former N.W.A manager Jerry Heller's defamation lawsuit over Universal's Straight Outta Compton is again live. The first order of business is a motion that aims to kick Universal's attorneys at Greenberg Traurig off the case.

Heller died in September at the age of 75 after a career where he worked with artists including Creedence Clearwater Revival, Marvin Gaye, Pink Floyd, Elton John and Kraftwerk. He's foremost known for his collaboration with N.W.A's Eazy-e, where the two began Ruthless Records and helped mainstream gangsta rap.

But before he died, Heller didn't appreciate Paul »

Hue 1968 Miniseries In The Works With Michael Mann Attached

25 April 2017 6:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now here’s a piping hot package that’s beginning to coalesce at a brisk clip. According to Deadline, writer-director Michael Mann and Michael De Luca are joining forces for an eight-to-ten-hour miniseries based on Hue 1968: The Turning Point in the American War in Vietnam, the soon-to-be-published novel from scribe Mark Bowden.

If that name sounds familiar, it should; Bowden is also the creative mind behind wartime drama Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War – the same Black Hawk Down that Ridley Scott engineered into a taut, nail-biting thriller back in ’01. Set to release on June 6th, Hue 1968 takes place during the height of the Vietnam War, when napalm was the weapon of choice and Creedence Clearwater Revival blared out over the speakers.

Perhaps most intriguing of all, though, is the fact that Mark Bowden’s novel will present a no-holds-barred account of the Vietnam War, including »

Exclusive: Brad Paisley Fights for Better Treatment of Us Veterans on New Song - 'We Have to Make This Right'

20 April 2017 3:48 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Brad Paisley is tipping his cowboy hat to our U.S. veterans.

Only Et was with the country star in San Diego last week, where he filmed his latest music video aboard the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier and alongside the iconic Unconditional Surrender kissing statue. The song, "Love and War," serves as the title track for Paisley's 11th studio album (out Friday) and delivers a pointed message regarding the treatment of vets right here at home with the chorus: "They say all is fair in love and war, but that ain't true, it's wrong. They send you off to die for us, forget about you when you don't."

"I think the message is, really, we can do better," Paisley says. "We can do a lot better when it comes to taking care of veterans. I don't think there's anyone who would disagree with that. There's a line in the song which is one of my favorite lines, 'We »

Zach Woods Compares His ‘Silicon Valley’ Character to a ‘New England Mom,’ and Here’s Why That’s Hysterically Tragic

19 April 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Think of your standard YouTube character tribute videos. Three seasons of a show like “Silicon Valley” usually get you some classic one-liners, memorable character beats and a few outtakes for good measure, all wrapped up in a few minutes.

This one for Jared, Zach Woods’ character on HBO’s “Silicon Valley,” runs the length of an entire episode of the show.

Jared has always been at the center of the “Silicon Valley” story (there he is on the Season 1 poster, in full Steve Jobs pose, literally at the side of Pied Piper co-founder Richard Hendricks), but Woods has grown to be the show’s heart too. In a world of backstabbing and self-interest, Jared has remained the show’s sole, true altruist.

“I sometimes think of it as an archetypical family,” Woods said. “Erlich is the rambunctious father, Kumail is the baby boy, Gilfoyle is the cat and Richard is like the favorite son. »

Free Fire: The 70’s Crime Pictures It Takes a Bullet From

1 April 2017 1:05 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black on Free Fire

Let’s be honest, if you’ve seen Free Fire, you’ll know it’s not particularly like a lot of the 1970’s crime films that, on the face of it, Ben Wheatley’s movie would sit alongside. This pulpy, lean slice of comic violence owes more to the early 90’s stylistics of down’n’dirty Tarantino than to Scorsese or Friedkin, but given i’ts set in the 70’s, was executive produced by Martin Scorsese, and certainly has plenty of now retro-connections to that decade, this seems a good place to analyse Free Fire in the context of the crime pictures of that decade. Where does it fit? Should it fit at all? Or should it rather tuck in behind Reservoir Dogs and, anachronistically, exist slightly out of the time it’s very much rooted in?

Crime thrillers of the 1970’s, for a start, »

31 March 2017 12:17 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After premiering at the 2016 Toronto Film Festival, Ben Wheatley’s “Free Fire” is finally gearing up for its theatrical debut on April 21. But before that, we get to enjoy the film’s score, which was created by Portishead’s Geoff Barrow and composer Ben Salisbury. The soundtrack, which also includes songs by John Denver, Creedence Clearwater Revival and The Real Kids, was released Friday via Invada and Lakeshore Records.

Chasing Kong

25 March 2017 6:03 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

"Is this the moving picture ship?"—Opening line of King Kong (1933)You can get close to madness trying to fit the entire cultural legacy of the original King Kong into a single box. Even setting aside the two Hollywood remakes, you're still left with hastily made or quickly buried sequels, follow-ups like Mighty Joe Young (1949), a Universal Studios ride, a direct-to-video cartoon, a children’s TV series, and a set of 1960s Japanese-American co-productions—Kingu Kongu!—which saw the big ape square off against Godzilla and "Mechani-Kong" in showdowns with worse special effects than the film that preceded them by thirty years. Apologies for anything I've left out, because by this point King Kong is a cottage industry unto itself, an old-fashioned self-perpetuating Hollywood myth that's morphed in meaning and presentation but never entirely gone away.

Kong: Skull Island Review – Not Bad, But Not Nearly As Awesome As We Hoped

9 March 2017 2:36 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Legendary Pictures, the company who revived Godzilla a few years back, is now trying to do the same for the classic Universal movie monster King Kong with the intentions of bringing the two together sometime in the future. If nothing else, they seem to have learned a lesson from Godzilla in terms of making sure to show the star of the movie as much as possible rather than hiding or teasing him.

After a prologue showing two downed WWII pilots encountering Kong, we cut forward to 1973 as the Vietnam War is coming to an end, and a group of scientists have discovered a new island in the Pacific with plans to send an exploratory mission. Spearheaded by John Goodman’s Bill Randa, they request a military escort, and as luck would have it, a group of soldiers led by Samuel L. Jackson’s Col. Packard, have just finished their actions »

'Kong: Skull Island' Premiere — Brie Larson and '70s Rock Take Center Stage

9 March 2017 10:16 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The Los Angeles Kong: Skull Island premiere seemed like it was DJ'ed from your dad's vinyl collection.

AC/DC, the Who and Creedence Clearwater Revival blasted over Hollywood Boulevard as the guests and stars of the Warner Bros. and Legendary feature filed onto a teal carpet. Some Led Zeppelin was thrown in, for good measure.  

Skull Island is the latest Kong iteration, this time set in post-Vietnam 1970s, following a ragtag group of scientists and a military unit on a survey mission of an uncharted island inhabited by the titular ape.

Kong: Skull Island Gets One Last Trailer As Jordan Vogt-Roberts Touches Base On Possible Sequel

7 March 2017 8:42 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Early on in the development of Legendary’s Kong: Skull Island, writer-director Jordan Vogt-Roberts pitched the idea of setting said creature feature against the backdrop of the Vietnam War, at a time when napalm was the weapon of choice. Much to his surprise, the Powers That Be gave the go-ahead, allowing Vogt-Roberts to craft a monster movie dripping with a very particular, Apocalypse Now-esque aesthetic.

Situating Skull Island in the early ’70s also allowed the director to call upon some of the greatest and most iconic rock ballads of the era – Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Rolling Stones…you name it – but for whatever reason, the fourth and presumably final trailer comes packing a noisy and frankly off-putting score that doesn’t really jive with a Vietnam War pic involving a 100ft ape.

But beyond the questionable selection of music, we should warn you that the trailer above strays far into spoiler territory, »

Swamp People: Rotting lung and spleen ‘beef melt’ is delicious to alligators

23 February 2017 7:00 PM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

On Swamp People, season eight appears to be going swimmingly, finally. Everyone escapes Episode 3 with all their limbs intact. Taking a cue from Daniel Edgar and the legend of Grande Noir from last week, Willie Edwards pulls out a whopper Swamp People fait accompli. But before we discuss this, the episode opens with our freakishly blue-eyed Willie lamenting the working man’s blues of being a commercial fisherman. To paraphrase Louisiana’s ‘Born on the bayou’ auteurs Creedence Clearwater Revival, he ain’t no fortunate Landry son. No sir. Edwards just hits the fishing and gator-snaring work daily and he never quits or...read more »

6 February 2017 3:08 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Aubrie Sellers may sound like an angel, but she’s got a lot of edge—both in her music and in her hobbies!

The rising singer-songwriter, 25, had so much fun riding a motorcycle on the set of her “Sit Here and Cry” music video that it inspired her to get her license.

“I have a friend, Natalie, who rides with this girl biker group called Babes Ride Out,” Sellers tells People Now. “I was like, ‘I want you guys to come be in my video.’ So they came and did it and we rode and it was so much fun. »

Bill Graham Biopic Moving Ahead at Fox With Zach Dean Writing

5 January 2017 4:33 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox has tapped Zach Dean to adapt its biopic about iconic concert promoter Bill Graham, a year after buying movie rights to the autobiography “Bill Graham: My Life Inside Rock and Out.”

Shawn Levy is producing through his 21 Laps company and has been on the project since last year.

Graham was collaborating with Robert Greenfield on the book before he perished in a helicopter accident in 1991 at the age of 60 while returning from a Huey Lewis and the News concert. Greenfield is an executive producer on the movie along with David Graham and Alex Graham.

Graham’s story began in Europe, where he was placed in an orphanage as a child to avoid the Holocaust before being sent sent to New York. He was drafted into the Army in 1951 and served in Korea.

Graham moved to San Francisco in the early 1960s to be closer to his sister and »
