Brett Ratner Accused of Sexual Harassment By Six Women, Including Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge, in L.A. Times Report
Brett Ratner has been accused of sexual harassment and misconduct by six women in a new report from The Los Angeles Times. The accusers against the “Rush Hour” and “Tower Heist” director include actresses Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge. The latter was a 19-year-old fashion model when an alleged encounter occurred at Ratner’s New York City apartment. Ratner was a music video director in his early 20s at the time. Henstridge says that she fell asleep watching TV and when she woke up she was alone in his apartment with him. He allegedly blocked the door as she tried to leave and forced her to perform oral sex on him.

“He strong-armed me in a real way,” Henstridge said. “He physically forced himself on me. At some point, I gave in and he did his thing.”

Olivia Munn alleges that Ratner masturbated in front of her in his trailer

Halloween 2017: 31 Movies to Watch on Hulu This October

  • DailyDead
Last week, I gave you guys a few lists from Amazon and Netflix in regards to what they have to offer via their streaming services this fall. As a newbie to Hulu, I only discovered over the weekend that they, too, beyond just being an amazing resource for television programming, offer up a killer selection of genre movies that are free to stream with a standard Hulu membership.

Here’s a look at an assortment of 31 films from Hulu that I think would be great movies to stream this October. I tried to give you guys a wide variety, too, hitting various sub-genres, so hopefully there’s a little bit of something for everyone in this list.

The Faculty

As far as high school horror films go, The Faculty has remained one of my very favorites for years now. Essentially, it’s Robert Rodriguez riffing on The X-Files, and who can resist that?

The beginner's guide to Bollywood

Dave Lawrie Aug 16, 2017

Fancy a film that mashes up Reservoir Dogs and The Usual Suspects, with a few song and dance numbers? Step this way...

Film is such a diverse medium that it is possible to call yourself a fan without ever venturing out of your favourite genre. Hell, it is perfectly acceptable nowadays to add 'films' to your list of hobbies by watching nothing more than the output of the McU. Getting some people to venture into the wonderful world of foreign cinema can admittedly be a tall order. We’ve all met one, right? The 'I go to the cinema to watch, not to read!' crowd. That’s fine. There is nothing wrong with having your entertainment packaged as you like it.

Michelle Pfeiffer Joins ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ as Janet Van Dyne

Michelle Pfeiffer Joins ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ as Janet Van Dyne
Michelle Pfeiffer will star alongside Paul Rudd in “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” Marvel revealed during its San Diego Comic-Con panel on Saturday.

The Oscar-nominee will play Janet Van Dyne, mother of Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne and wife of Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym. It’s not Pfeiffer’s first brush with comic book fandom, though it is her first time in a Marvel movie. She previously starred in 1992’s “Batman Returns,” injecting some sizzle into the part of Catwoman.

Mother! Poster Has Jennifer Lawrence Ripping Her Heart Out
Paramount Pictures has released the first poster for Mother!, the new film from director Darren Aronofsky that stars Jennifer Lawrence. No official plot details have been released yet, but with the arrival of this new poster, we could be getting the trailer and official synopsis in the near future. The movie is said to center on a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence, although hopefully we'll learn more about this movie soon.

Paramount Pictures' Darren Aronofsky, has been given a wide release date of October 13. That date had previously been in place for the studio's Friday the 13th and the zombie sequel World War Z 2, but neither of those projects are arriving on that date now.

Great Scott! Would you want to see Robert Zemeckis direct The Flash?

Author: Scott Davis

Are you telling me that the director of Back to the Future could be about to helm the next big Dceu film, The Flash? If new rumours are to be believed the legendary filmmaker is in talks with Warner Bros about taking over the long-gestating project, according to Screen Junkies.

Zemeckis would certainly be something a coup for the studios having had plenty of trouble trying to get this film of the ground. But with his directorial style and his recent embracing of 3D, it could be a match made in heaven. Most recently, he made Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard-starrer Allied, and has made such films as Cast Away, The Walk, Romancing the Stone and What Lies Beneath.

The film has had a checkered production history so far: Originally it was set to be made by Christopher Miller and Phil Lord (The Lego Movie) but

Daisy Ridley Works Out for 'Star Wars: Episode VIII' and Hides Rey Hairstyle

Star Wars: Episode VIII is almost ready to wrap filming, but that isn't stopping Daisy Ridley from getting her strong on for her role as Rey. In a new video, which you can see below, Ridley is hard at work on her already impressive physique.

As expected details on the new Star Wars film have been sparse, but that's what I like about the franchise. Some people complain about J.J. Abrams and his insistence on the whole "Mystery Box", but I'm a big proponent. Too often were handed a film's entire plot in the first trailer. The first time I remember this happening is with Robert Zemeckis' What Lies Beneath. Now it's fairly commonplace.

That being said, what info can we glean from the new video Ridley posted to her Facebook page? She seems to be in the midst of a rigorous workout routine, so I think it's safe

25 movie trailers that gave away way too much

From Terminator films and Jurassic World through to trailers with the ending in them...

One of the trailers for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is the latest to ignite grumbles about just how much is given away in promos for movies.

This list looks at 25 films where the trailer has given away more than it really should in its promos - and it goes without saying that spoilers lie ahead for each of the movies. Don't read or click on individual entries of films you've not seen if you don't want to be spoiler sullied!

25. Jurassic World

Director Colin Trevorrow was amongst those who expressed disappointment at this one particular promo for Jurassic World. In it, we see Chris Pratt riding on his motorbike, alongside velcoraptors that surprisingly don't appear to be eating him. Presented out of context, the scene just looked a little daft. But

Castle season 8 episode 7: The Last Seduction

This review contains spoilers.

8.7 The Last Seduction

I signed off last week’s review by pointing out that the absence of Kate in the episode had the unfortunate effect of making us realize that we didn’t really miss her all that much. So it was wise—and possibly the first truly smart thing done all season—to follow that up with The Last Seduction, an episode that reminds us precisely why we should miss our female lead.

The episode revolves—ostensibly—around the murder of a gigolo: a handsome actor who seduces older, rich, married women for initially unspecified but obviously nefarious purposes (boy, wouldn’t it be nice to see more May-December romantic or sexual attachments with women in the December role that were actually based in mutual attraction?). He ends up dead at just about the moment he decides that what he’s doing isn’t very nice,

Listen To Composer Alan Silvestri’s Score For The Walk

An impossible, but true story, the new film from Robert Zemeckis, The Walk is a live-action, PG-rated entertainment for all audiences, ages 8 to 80. A love letter to the World Trade Center, the film is a 3D and IMAX visual experience, unlike anything audiences have seen.

On August 7, 1974 – the day before Richard Nixon announced he would be resigning from office – Philippe Petit, a French aerialist, surprised the city of New York with a high-wire walk between the towers of the almost-completed and partially occupied World Trade Center. Passersby without a moment to spare stopped in their tracks and looked up. They saw the impossible: a man dancing high in the sky, seemingly in the thin air.

Now, forty years later, Zemeckis – one of cinema’s most accomplished filmmakers at integrating technology in the service of emotional storytelling – is putting moviegoers in Petit’s shoes. The Walk, an epic, big-screen cinematic spectacle,
