17 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – George Clooney’s “Suburbicon,” Guillermo Del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” Stephen Frears’ “Victoria and Abdul,” and Paolo Virzi’s “Ella and John,” starring Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland, are among the titles strongly tipped to world premiere at the upcoming 74th Venice Film Festival.

Also expected to make their worldwide bows on the Lido are Paul Schrader’s “First Reformed,” Andrew Haigh’s “Lean on Pete,” and Lucrecia Martel’s “Zama.”

Less than a week before the official announcement, the buzz on the Venice lineup remains somewhat muted, though some locked-in titles have surfaced, including Alexander Payne’s “Downsizing,” which will open the fest. There’s also certainty over the absence of some titles – especially “Blade Runner 2049” and Darren Aronofsky’s “Mother!”, both high-profile movies that had been considered as possibilities.

Suburbicon,” starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Josh Brolin, and Oscar Isaac, looks set to be the second Paramount picture to launch from »

Ben Affleck is heading to Comic-Con this weekend to promote Warner Bros.’ upcoming Justice League movie, set for a Nov. 17 release. But how many more times is he likely to put on the Batsuit? Probably not many, if ever again.

And Matt Reeves, who will direct the studio’s still-undated (and unwritten) The Batman, has said that he means to keep Affleck in the »

John Boyega Slams ‘Game of Thrones’ For Lack of Diversity: ‘There Are No Black People’

13 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

John Boyega, who shot to fame with his role as defector Storm Trooper Finn in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” minces no words when discussing Hollywood’s race problem.

“There are no black people on ‘Game of Thrones.’ You don’t see one black person in ‘Lord of the Rings,'” Boyega said in a recent interview with GQ. “I ain’t paying money to always see one type of person on-screen. Because you see different people from different backgrounds, different cultures, every day. Even if you’re a racist, you have to live with that. We can ruffle up some feathers.”

Much has been made of the racial politics of “Game of Thrones” following controversy around this week’s announcement of “Confederate,” the next project from creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. »

Comic-Con attendees saw the first-ever footage from Marvel’s upcoming “The Punisher” in Hall H Friday night, and if you were hoping the show would be “What if ‘Death Wish’ had fewer mustaches, and also super heroes,” you’re in luck. Bleak, menacing bordering on exploitation cinema, the footage showed off a damaged Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal), who’s half Charles Bronson in “Death Wish” and half Clint Eastwood’s “Dirty Harry.” It opened with a flashback to Frank Castle before the attack that killed his family, gave him traumatic injuries and turned him into The Punisher. As he plays guitar with his young daughter, »
