Cannes Film Festival to Start One Day Earlier in 2018

6 hours ago

The Cannes Film Festival is shifting things for its 71st edition next year, starting one day earlier. Festival organizers announced Wednesday that the 2018 festival will start on May 8 and run through May 19, 2018 (ending on a Saturday instead of a Sunday). The awards ceremony will take place on Saturday, May 19.

“Following 2017’s anniversary edition, the Festival is beginning a new period in its history,” Festival President Pierre Lescure said in a statement. “We intend to renew the principles of our organization as much as possible, while continuing to question the cinema of our age and to be present through its upheavals.”

The new schedule, the statement read, will allow festival organizers to “rebalance” the two weeks of the event and bring “new energy” to the festival. »

‘Megyn Kelly Today’ on Track to Deliver NBC’s Worst Sweeps Ratings Since 2000

1 hour ago

It’s no secret that former Fox News host Megyn Kelly has been struggling in the ratings since transitioning to daytime television at NBC. New data from Nielsen, however, suggests the picture grimmer than most realize. While the month isn’t over yet, Kelly is on track to deliver historically low numbers for the critical November sweeps period. In fact, if things stay where they are, Kelly will log the lowest sweeps numbers of any period since NBC’s “Today” franchise first claimed the 9 a.m. hour in 2000. And we’re not just talking about the advertiser-coveted 25-54 demographic or total viewers — we’re. »

Hollywood Harassment Is a Gold Mine for Crisis PR Firms

1 hour ago

The post-Harvey Weinstein harassment and abuse accusations have created a boom for at least a few people in Hollywood: public reactions experts specializing in crisis management. “We’ve seen an uptick of three times the volume in the past six weeks alone,” Evan Nierman, founder of crisis PR firm Red Banyan, told TheWrap. “I’ve signed four new clients just this past week.” The reckoning around sexual misconduct has revived pain and trauma for victims, and cost many accused men their jobs and reputations. Crisis PR experts might be the only ones who come out ahead. Also Read: Charlie Rose Faces 3 New Sexual Misconduct. »

‘Call Me by Your Name’ Film Review: Senses Working Overtime in Lush Summer Romance

3 hours ago

Director Luca Guadagnino makes sensual epics in every definition of the adjective. In his previous films “I Am Love” and “A Bigger Splash,” he makes movies that audiences don’t merely see and hear; these are experiences to be touched, felt, even smelled. His characters exist in a specific natural context, and he conveys their reactions to their surroundings. His latest feature, the masterful “Call Me by Your Name,” ups the ante on Guadagnino’s sensuality. We can feel the grass under bare feet, smell lake water and perspiration on exposed skin, and taste the fresh apricots. (And yes, the »

Let’s Try to Piece Together What Zack Snyder’s Version of ‘Justice League’ Was Like

4 hours ago

(Major spoilers ahead for the actual version of “Justice League,” even as we make some educated guesses about what the movie might have been.) It’s no secret that “Justice League” is a movie that underwent a lot of changes during its production — credited director Zack Snyder exited the movie early this year and Joss Whedon oversaw reshoots that went on for so long that Henry Cavill had to shoot a bunch of scenes as Superman with a mustache that he grew for another movie. And the changes were so obviously massive that some fans, after seeing it, are demanding that. »
