If you don’t know David Clowes from his graphic novels, like “Ghost World” and “David Boring,” you might remember hearing his name when Shia Labeouf was accused of plagiarizing him four years ago. In a new Daily Beast interview, Clowes says he’s forgiven the actor-turned–installation artist — at least for now. The cause of his softened feelings? The fact that they’re both opposed to Donald Trump.

Originally set up in front of New York’s Museum of the Moving Image, it’s now being relocated to the El Rey Theater in Albuquerque, New Mexico after Momi decided that too many conflicts had broken out at the contentious space. »

The actor and performance artist Shia Labeouf is bringing his four-year-long live stream, dubbled HeWillNotDivide.Us, from New York City to New Mexico. The performance art project, launched by Labeouf alongside collaborators Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner on Inauguration Day in response to the election of President Donald Trump, was formerly hosted by New York’s Museum Of The Moving Image. However, following Labeouf’s arrest after a dispute with a visitor in January, the museum called the project “a serious and ongoing public safety hazard” and shuttered the endeavor on Feb. 10.
“As of February 18, 2017,” reads a statement from Labeouf, Rönkkö, and Turner, “we are proud to be continuing HeWillNotDivide.Us at the El Rey Theater, Albuquerque.”

At one point early in American Honey (Universal, 15), Shia Labeouf’s midwestern misfit ringleader gestures to his baggy flannel trousers with broad, garish braces and asks if they’re “too Donald Trumpish”. What may once have been conceived as a throwaway cultural reference is now gasp-inducingly on the nose. British director Andrea Arnold’s wild, whirling, furious American road movie is a pre-emptive vision of Trump’s America, gazing upon the red state poverty and pride that enabled the orange one’s presidency and will be further disabled by it.
Following the misadventures of Star (the remarkable newcomer Sasha Lane), a young, directionless woman of colour, after she falls in with Labeouf’s magazine-hawking cult of doomed youth, it’s a vividly impressionistic film rather than a rhetorical one. »

Labeouf, alongside collaborators Rönkkö and Turner, spoke out against the museum in a statement on TheCampaignBook.com, revealing that the project will continue as of Saturday, relocating to the El Rey Theater in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
"From the outset, the museum failed to address our concerns about the misleading framing of our piece as a political rally, rather than as a participatory performance artwork resisting the normalisation of division," read the statement by Labeouf, Rönkkö and Turner. "Nonetheless, there had been no incidents of physical violence at the site of our project that we are aware of, nor that we »
Labeouf, Rönkkö & Turner’s ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ livestream brought international attention to a unique presidential protest project, where artist Shia Labeouf was frequently at the frontline. But after allegations of too much aggression between protestors of differing political views, the Museum of the Moving Image shut the exhibit down 0n February 10.
But the team is planning a return, and this time they’re moving across the country. In a joint statement released on Feb. 18, the trio revealed that they will be setting up camp at the El Rey Theater in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

After the New York art instillation Hewillnotdivide.Us was shut down, Labeouf, Rönkkö & Turner announced on Saturday that they were relaunching the project at the El Rey Theater in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and slammed their former venue — the Museum of the Moving Image — for canceling the project earlier this month.

“Return to Montauk” is Volker Schlöndorff’s tasteful, high-minded Euro-literate version of a Lifetime Movie — and I mean that (mostly) as a compliment. It’s the story of a famous novelist, Max Zorn, played by Stellan Skarsgård (and based on Schlöndorff’s friend Max Frisch, the celebrated Swiss novelist who died in 1991). He arrives in New York from his home in Berlin for a week-long stay to plug his latest masterpiece, but once there all he can think about is reuniting with Rebecca (Nina Hoss), who lit his flame 17 years ago. It’s a tricky situation, since Max is married. His wife, Clara (Susanne Wolff), lives in New York, half a world away from him, and if that sounds like an unconventional arrangement, it speaks to the essence of Max’s nature. He’s in his early sixties, worldly and authoritative, not just a novelist but a Continental philosopher of fiction, »

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:
The Lego Batman Movie won the weekend as expected, but not with nearly as much money as I had predicted, not besting the opening of The Lego Movie as expected, but instead ending up with a reasonable and not so bad $53 million. Fifty Shades Darker proved that the audience for movies based on the popular books was still great enough for it to win Friday with $21 million (to Lego Batman’s $15 million) and end up second for the weekend with a strong $46.6 million. That was still almost $40 million less than the opening of the previous movie Fifty Shades of Grey, but the sequel also didn’t have the benefits of Valentine’s Day and a four-day holiday. Coming in »

The 23-year-old actress admitted that she likes to keep her private life private, and didn't reveal if she employed any of Labeouf's help in preparing for her latest film, but she did give us her initial reaction after reading the script.
"I had to read it a good few times to really wrap my head around everything it was dealing with," she recalled. "And I think it's the same for audiences. I think it's a film you have to watch a couple times to really pick up the details and nuances »
Increasingly international-minded producers in Central and Eastern Europe are scoring more projects than ever with co-productions on the rise, from historic tales to biopics, in territories both with and without incentives.
The Czech Republic’s Stillking, long a forerunner in bringing Western producers to Prague, wrapped season one of “Genius” (pictured above), which focuses on Albert Einstein, in February; the National Geographic Channel project from Ron Howard with Fox 21 Television chronicles exceptional lives.
Film United, another outward-looking Prague-based shingle, is headed by Rick McCallum. It was busy recently with “Britannia,” a 10-part Sky and Amazon series that follows ancient Rome’s conquests of the Celts in the British Isles. As with many such high-end series, Prague’s »

Shia Labeouf's anti-Trump art project has been shut down.
Last month, the 30-year-old actor teamed up with the Museum of Moving Image in Queens, New York, to create the “He Will Not Divide Us” art installation aimed to protest President Donald Trump. But after experiencing disruptive protests since its opening, the museum announced on Friday its decision to terminate the project.
"The installation created a serious and ongoing public safety hazard for the Museum, its visitors, staff, local residents, and businesses," the Museum of Moving Image said in statement. "The installation had become a flashpoint for violence and was disrupted from its original intent."
"While the installation began constructively, it deteriorated markedly after one of the artists was arrested on the site of the installation and ultimately necessitated this action," the statement continued, citing Labeouf's arrest on Jan. 25 after allegedly »
