It is never easy for a woman to come forward in such situations and I wholeheartedly support those who have,” Blanchett said.

Waxman, who founded The Wrap in 2009, claimed that Damon and Crowe called her "directly" to shut down reports she was following about Miramax's Italian head, Fabrizio Lombardo, who was allegedly hired "to take care of Weinstein's women needs." 

Damon denied that he tried to put a stop to the Weinstein story in his interview with Deadline, explaining that he made a "one-minute phone call" to Waxman at Weinstein's request.

Matt Damon and Russell Crowe Reportedly Helped Kill a New York Times Article About Harvey Weinstein in 2004

9 October 2017 1:57 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The New York Times article that ultimately led to Harvey Weinstein being fired wasn’t the first attempt at bringing his accusers’ stories to light. Writing in TheWrap, Sharon Waxman says that she attempted to do just that while working as a reporter for the Nyt in 2004, but her story was pulled in part due to “intense pressure from Weinstein, which included having Matt Damon and Russell Crowe call me directly.”

Actors Who Were Almost Spider-Man

How many actors have played Spider-Man? We've had more Spider-Man movies than there are Baldwin brothers, or Kardashian sisters. But so what? Everybody loves the friendly neighborhood webhead! It's been more than half a century since Amazing Fantasy #15 hit the stands and ever since Stan Lee and Steve Ditko gave us the kid who does whatever a spider can, Peter Parker's popularity has covered the world like a spider spinning its web. (Ugh sorry).

The wise cracking, hard working, hard luck hero is a young actor's dream. The number of guys who have wanted to get in that mask earned by Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland could fill a Spider-Verse movie packed with Miles Morales, Doc Ock, Spider-Gwen and every other comic version of the wall crawler. Here, we look at 10 Actors who were almost cast as Spider-Man. For whatever reason, they just didn't make it into that costume. »

While not everyone was enamored with the return to the Wizarding World in Fantastic Beasts, I really enjoyed it.  I love seeing these concepts in a different context, taken out of the school and with full-fledged wizards/witches (not just students).  As such, I'm still very interested to see where this new series is going, and today gives us fans new information on the second film, which began filming.

Jude Law Needs Fewer Soulless Blockbusters and More Iconoclasts Like Paolo Sorrentino’s ‘The Young Pope’

19 June 2017 11:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Jude Law, who’s always been hard to pin down, and his title role in HBO Emmy Contender “The Young Pope” is no exception. 

Bottom Line: As he embraces his mid-40s, Jude Law has morphed from British golden boy to globally bankable character actor. His range is wide, from tragic robot Gigolo Joe in Steven Spielberg’s “A.I.” to Robert Downey, Jr.’s comedy sidekick Dr. Watson in Guy Ritchie’s blockbuster “Sherlock Holmes” franchise. Still stunningly handsome, Law is gaining grit and gravitas as he gets older. But there’s a sense he’s still holding back.

Warner Bros. looking at $150 million loss on King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

16 May 2017 3:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword found itself struggling at the box office this past weekend, grossing just $15.4 million from its domestic opening, and a further $29.1 million from international markets, including $5 million from China.

According to THR, the Guy Ritchie-directed medieval fantasy is expected to gross no more than $145 million globally. Given that Warner spent $175 million making the film, and many millions more on its marketing campaign, it has been reported that Warner will be looking at a loss in the region of $150 million.

Should the studio take that kind of hit, it would surpass the $125 million loss that Paramount suffered on Monster Trucks, making it the biggest box office bomb of the year to date. Fortunately for Warner Bros., the studio has some big hitters on the way this year in the likes of Wonder Woman, Dunkirk and Justice League, which should help to soften the blow.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Crushes King Arthur at Box Office in Weekend #2

14 May 2017 12:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy 2 kicked off the summer movie season in grand fashion last weekend, with an opening weekend of $145 million, far surpassing the $94.3 million take of the original Guardians of the Galaxy movie. This weekend, these intergalactic superheroes took on two new movies in wide release, Warner Bros. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and 20th Century Fox's Snatched, with Lowriders also managing to crack the top 10 in limited release. Still, none of these newcomers could come close to the superhero ensemble Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which had no trouble repeating with $63 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that this superhero sequel dropped 57% this weekend, playing in 4,347 theaters for a respectable $14,494 per-screen average. The $200 million budgeted movie has now taken in $246.1 million domestically and $630.5 million worldwide. After just two weekends, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 already quite close to surpassing both the domestic ($333.1 million) and worldwide take ($773.3 million) of its predecessor. »

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword tanks at the box office with $14.3 million weekend

14 May 2017 2:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, it looks like any franchise hopes Warner Bros. had for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword are dead in the water, with the Guy Ritchie-directed fantasy adventure suffering a miserable opening weekend in the States with just $14.3 million in box office receipts.

The film, which spent eight years in development, cost the studio a hefty $175 million to produce – including costly reshoots following what Deadline describes as “a train wreck” of an early cut – along with many millions more in marketing.

King Arthur has of course faced some stiff competition, with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 retaining top spot this weekend with an estimated $61.9 million, while the Amy Schumer / Goldie Hawn comedy Snatched also came out on top with $16.5 million.

The movie has also been slammed by critics, with a 27% Rotten Tomatoes score, although it does seem to be going down well with audiences (well, the ones who turned up, »
