Stranger Things Star Finn Wolfhard Joins The Goldfinch

Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated adaptation of The Goldfinch has picked up another important cast member, with It and Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard joining the cast. The young actor will portray the younger version of the pivotal Boris character, with the adult version being played by Aneurin Barnard (Dunkirk).

5 reasons to see The Post

It seems like something out of our wildest dreams, and yet it's somehow very real.  The Post tells the strange but true story of how the Washington Post went against protocol (and the law) to publish leaked government documents about the futility of the Vietnam War. Many directors would be wary to take on such heavy material, but it obviously didn't deter Spielberg at all. Rounding up a best-of-the-best cast, he has crafted a thrilling and rather timely movie about the freedom of the press.

The Post Review

Author: Stefan Pape

It was only two years ago that Spotlight won Best Picture at the Academy Awards, a film about journalists searching for the truth in the face of adversity. Now, it’s a territory that Steven Spielberg has delved into himself, to make an intelligent, entertaining drama that is so gloriously cinematic and unrelentingly fast-paced. It’s a bit like Spotlight, just played on fast forward.

Meryl Streep plays Kay Graham, the first female newspaper publisher, who runs the Washington Post, finding herself unwittingly caught up in a battle between the truth, and the Government. Her enterprising, stubborn editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks), along with his team of diligent reporters, have somehow got their hands on the Pentagon Papers, a revealing document that unravels corruption and lies concerning politicians and the military – going back as far as The White House. The New York Times have the story too,

Movie Review – The Post (2017)

The Post, 2017.

Directed by Steven Spielberg.

Starring Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Sarah Paulson, Bob Odenkirk, Tracy Letts, Bradley Whitford, Michael Stuhlbarg, Jesse Plemons, Alison Brie and Matthew Rhys.

Synopsis:

In the early 70s, the Washington Post discovers an extensive cover-up spanning four Us Presidents. The decision to publish what became known as The Pentagon Papers puts it, especially its publisher and editor, on a collision course with the government.

We’ve seen Washington Post Editor Ben Bradlee before, but played by a gruff Jason Robards in All The President’s Men (1976). There’s no mention in Steven Spielberg’s The Post of either Bob Woodward or Carl Bernstein – at least by name – but by the end of the film we’re in no doubt that one of the many hats worn by the film is that of prequel. To Watergate. And it’s all laced with the delicious irony of

Everything We Know About the Next Season of American Horror Story

As the old adage goes: new year, new . . . season of American Horror Story to obsess over. Now that we've crossed over into 2018, it's officially time to spread out our clues and try to figure out where the most unpredictable show on television will take us next. Previously, we thought we spotted a few clues near the end of Ahs: Cult; perhaps, we thought, the next installment would take us to Butte, Montana. But the only thing better than a potential hint is concrete detail from the creator himself, Ryan Murphy. Luckily, the horror mastermind has already let slip a few spare tidbits about the show's eighth go-round. Let's review what we know so far. 1. The Cast Sarah Paulson had already signed on way back in Oct. 2017, making her the first member of the cast. But we'll do you one better. At this Winter's Television Critics Association panel, Murphy unleashed one major revelation.

Author: Jon Lyus

We present our red carpet interviews from the European Premiere of Steven Spielberg’s The Post, held at the Odeon Leicester Square on the 10th of January, 2018. It is the first high profile event of the 2018 movie calendar, and a new Spielberg film in cinemas is always something to take note of.

American Horror Story Season 8 Will Be Chilling And Set In The Near Future

Since it erupted onto television screens in 2011, Golden Globe winning actress Sarah Paulson has been a core part of the American Horror Story anthology series. In a starring cast of 27, across seven very different seasons, only Paulson and Evan Peters have the distinction of having featured in each one. It comes as little surprise, then, to hear Ryan Murphy not only confirm her involvement in the upcoming eighth season, but also to find that plans are afoot to ensure the actress will be augmenting her physicality once more – but in a very new way.

Having revealed to the Television Critics Association that season 8 of the show will be set in the future, Murphy made the further revelation to Entertainment Weekly that Paulson would be using dental appliances for her new role.

“Sarah Paulson is very excited about the dental appliances she will be wearing on the show.

“It’s set in the near future.

Starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks and directed by Steven Spielberg, The Post has the kind of pedigree most films would die for. Which is why we were so surprised when this prestige drama chronicling the real-life events around The Washington Post's decision to publish the Pentagon Papers in the early 1970s was shut out of the Golden Globes after receiving six nominations. However, given the timeliness of the film's story, we can't help but expect that the Oscar voters will feel differently about the film.

We had a chance recently to sit down with members of the amazingly talented cast including Sarah Paulson, Bob Odenkirk, Bradley Whitford, and Tracy Letts to discuss what makes this film so timely, and of course,

Versace Family Condemns 'Reprehensible' 'American Crime Story'

The Versace family issued a second statement Wednesday condemning FX's upcoming series, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, seemingly in response to showrunner Ryan Murphy's recent defense of the show.

"As we have said, the Versace family has neither authorized nor had any involvement whatsoever in the forthcoming TV series about the death of Mr. Gianni Versace, which should only be considered as a work of fiction," the family said in a statement.

Tamika’s Favorites of 2017

Last year felt like a rollercoaster ride, but luckily, for me, there were a number of horror-related films, TV shows, and apparel that put a smile on my face and helped me chug along throughout the year. Here is my list of favorites from 2017:

Mr. Mercedes: After getting to experience the first season of Stephen King's Mr. Mercedes on the Audience network back in August, I am happy to say that it is wonderful yet anxiety-inducing to spend time under Debbie's Blue Umbrella (this will make more sense after watching the series).

Mr. Mercedes is based on the first book in a trilogy of crime novels (Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, and End of Watch) that follow former detective Bill Hodges, a hard-drinking older gentleman who gets sucked back into the world of crime-solving when a very disturbed psychopath named Brady Hartsfield begins sending him menacing letters.

Liz Garbus’ New York Times Doc Gets Release Date on Showtime

Garbus: The Hollywood Reporter/YouTube

Awards for fake news stories and the fact that terms like “post-truth” exist suggest that we need a David and Goliath narrative about the importance of journalism now more than ever. Thankfully, as Deadline reports, Liz Garbus’ documentary on The New York Times will air on Showtime on May 27. The previously-announced doc chronicles the publication’s inner workings during the first year of the Trump Administration, which isn’t exactly a proponent of the free press (to put it mildly). Produced by RadicalMedia for Showtime, Garbus’ project is tentatively titled “The Fourth Estate.”

“From the first time President Trump called The New York Times ‘highly inaccurate’ in its coverage of his administration, through his false claim that the paper is ‘failing’ and losing thousands of subscribers, to ultimately declaring the majority of the nation’s major news outlets ‘fake news,’ a chief task for the Times,
