Golden Globes’ 11 Most Ludicrous Comedy or Musical Picks, From ‘The Martian’ to ‘Get Out’ (Photos)
Get Out” is being submitted to the Golden Globes in the “Musical or Comedy” category for Best Picture. It’s funny in that queasy, racially tense and awkward way, but make no mistake, it’s a horror movie. But this isn’t the only time that a movie strategically played category fraud to get a nomination. Here are 10 other instances that raise an eyebrow: “The Tourist” (2010) How can we invite Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp to the awards ceremony? Let’s nominate this romantic, action caper with a 20 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and stick it in the Musical or Comedy category!

Vaping on Screen: A Growing Trend?

Vaping is a trend that has grown massively in popularity over the course of the past few years, and it seems like more people than ever have chosen to take up the trend. This is largely to do with the indoor smoking ban, along with more knowledge of just how much damage smoking can do. Even more recently, the trend has been picked up by the entertainment industry, and there are many examples of on-screen vaping.

Historical trends of smoking on screen

The idea of smoking on screen is not new. Even in older films, smoking has been used as a way to portray class in many different ways. For example, you will often see a villain with a cigarette between his teeth, or a rich man smoking a cigar. Both of these are at opposite ends of the spectrum, but both use the same idea. With the emergence of

Hollywood’s New Relationship with E-cigarettes

The movie moguls of Hollywood have long been fascinated by smoking, and for a long time, even Walt Disney made use of smoking in its animated films. From Pinocchio smoking a cigar to Alice’s passive smoking in Alice of Wonderland, there are plenty of instances of smoking throughout Disney’s back catalogue. It’s fair to say, though, that smoking was far more frequently linked to villains in Disney’s early films than to the good guys, with baddies such as Captain Hook, Cruella De Vil and Hades all depicted smoking a cigar or cigarette.

In the grown-up world of film, a cigarette dangling provocatively from a character’s lips usually suggests either a rebellious or edgy nature or something dark and positively dangerous. So has cigarette smoking had its day on the silver screen? In Face/Off, for example, Nicolas Cage switches from bad guy Castor Troy to

Why Gal Gadot Was Paid Only $300,000 for Wonder Woman

Why Gal Gadot Was Paid Only $300,000 for Wonder Woman
If you’re following Johnny Depp’s ongoing lawsuit against his business managers — where newly public emails blithely reference Depp’s $20 million paychecks for The Tourist and Dark Shadows, as well as a $35 million offer for the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie — then it might be astounding to learn that Gal Gadot was paid just $300,000 for her star-making performance in Wonder Woman. That Patty Jenkins–directed superhero film is on track to outpace the domestic box-office performance of virtually every film Depp has made, so doesn’t she deserve a salary comparable to that of Hollywood’s top stars?

Golden Globes Voting: Who Is the Hollywood Foreign Press Association?
The Golden Globes are tonight, and though Ricky Gervais’ divisive tenure as host finally seems to be over, the show is still likely to be the most relaxed and entertaining of the six months of the year we now know as awards season. What’s less well known than the actual broadcast, however, is who exactly the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is. Here’s a brief rundown.

The HFPA is a group of approximately 90 journalists hailing from around the world and now based in Southern California, mostly near Los Angeles and the film industry itself.

Golden Globes Recognize Actual Comedies and Musicals With Nominations

Golden Globes Recognize Actual Comedies and Musicals With Nominations
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is always full of surprises, but there was at least one pleasant one this morning: when it came to the comedy/musical category for the Golden Globes, they actually nominated comedies and musicals. If that sounds like a no-brainer, consider last year’s winners: “The Martian” took best picture while its star Matt Damon took best actor. Best actress in a comedy/musical went to Jennifer Lawrence of “Joy.”

Every year, the Golden Globes endure criticism when it comes to the film comedy category: why even bother breaking the categories into drama and musical/comedy when so many films end up blurring the lines? (This was perhaps most noticeable in 2010 when the Globes nominated “The Tourist,” along with stars Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, as a comedy.) But this year, they actually chose to do something about it, nominating two genuine musicals (“La La Land

Johnny Depp Is Most Overpaid Actor for Second Year in a Row

Johnny Depp Is Most Overpaid Actor for Second Year in a Row
Johnny Depp, in a time not all that long ago, was easily one of the most promising, praised and in-demand actors in all of Hollywood. Now, while still in fairly high-demand, his promise and prominence have definitely taken a steep dive. For the second year in a row, he has been named Hollywood's most overpaid actor.

Forbes recently published their list of overpaid actors for 2016 and just like in 2015, Johnny Depp came out on top. With movies like Alice Through the Looking Glass flopping at the box office, the actor managed to only bring in $2.80 for $1 he was paid for starring in the movie. That is an incredibly bad return and says a lot about just how far he has fallen. Even his more recent outings that were well received, like Black Mass, didn't bring in very much at the box office, but he was still paid a hefty sum for his services.

Exclusive: ComicBookMovie Sits Down With Star Trek Beyond Makeup Artist Joel Harlow

It's not every day you get a chance to chat with an Academy Award-winner, but that's exactly the opportunity I was given a few weeks back when I got to sit down with Joel Harlow, the makeup artist behind Paramount Pictures' critically acclaimed smash hit Star Trek Beyond.  Harlow's work spans many generations, so even if you haven't gotten around to watching Captain Kirk's latest adventure just yet, you'll surely have seen his handiwork in one film or another at some point over the last thirty years. Outside of the Star Trek franchise, for which his won his Academy Award back in 2009, he has a very close working relationship with 3x Academy Award-nominated actor Johnny Depp, collaborating with him on all five films in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, both Alice In Wonderland films, The Tourist, The Rum Diary, Dark Shadows, The Lone Ranger, Transcendence, Mortdecai, Into The Woods and Black Mass.

Angelina Jolie In Talks to Star in War Drama ‘Shoot Like a Girl’

Angelina Jolie In Talks to Star in War Drama ‘Shoot Like a Girl’
Angelina Jolie is in early negotiations to star in the Afghanistan war drama “Shoot Like a Girl,” sources confirm.

The TriStar film is based on the upcoming memoir “Shoot Like a Girl: One Woman’s Dramatic Fight in Afghanistan and on the Home Front,” which tells the true story of Major Mary Jennings Hagar, who served multiple tours in Afghanistan as a helicopter pilot. The Purple Heart recipient saved hundreds of men and women on and off the battlefield in the Middle East and was later helped eliminate the military’s Ground Combat Exclusion Policy, which kept female officers from serving in combat roles.

The film would mark Jolie’s first action project since “The Tourist” and “Salt” in 2010. She has since toplined Disney’s “Maleficent” and co-starred with ex Brad Pitt in the 2015 drama “By the Sea,” which tanked at the box office.

She is repped by UTA and Media Talent Group.

'The Odyssey' to close San Sebastian

  • ScreenDaily
Biopic based on the life of Jacques Cousteau.

The 64th San Sebastian Festival (Sept 14-24) is to close with the world premiere of The Odyssey, a film based on the life of Jacques Cousteau, written and directed by Jérôme Salle.

The €35m film looks at the challenging relationship between the underwater exploration pioneer and his son Philippe. The screenplay is based on the books Mon père, le Commandant Jacques-Yves Cousteau, by Jean Michel Cousteau, and Capitaine de la Calypso, by Albert Falco.

Salle is perhaps best known for writing action romance The Tourist, starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, and directing both Cannes 2013 closer Zulu and César-nominated Anthony Zimmer, which starred Sophie Marceau.

The Odyssey stars Lambert Wilson, Pierre Niney and Audrey Tautou in the parts of Cousteau, his son Philippe and his wife, respectively.

Wilson’s, known for performances in Xabier Beauvois’ Of Gods and Men and André Téchiné’s Rendez-vous, will make his

World Premiere of Wild Bunch-Sold ‘The Odyssey’ Closes San Sebastian

Madrid — Starring Lambert Wilson (“Of Gods and Men”), Pierre Niney (“Yves Saint Laurent”) and Audrey Tautou (“Amelie), Jerome Salle’s Wild Bunch-sold “The Odyssey” will world premiere at San Sebastian, closing this year’s festival.

A film on the life of deep-sea explorer Jacques Cousteau, structured around his troubled relationship with his son, Philippe, “The Odyssey” charts not only Cousteau’s game-changing discovery of life at the bottom of the ocean, and near unique ability to communicate his excitement to others, but his halting understanding of the importance of his own family. Boasting a stellar French cast, six-time Cesar-nominated Lambert plays Cousteau, Tautou, star of multiple other French films such as “A Very Long Engagement,” limns his wife. Niney, regarded by many as the finest actor of his generation, portrays son Philippe.

A director of ambitious, big-canvas French movies, Salle’s latest movie, “Zulu,” toplining Orlando Bloom and Forest Whitaker,

Our Kind Of Traitor Review

Our Kind Of Traitor doesn’t dazzle, nor does it seduce – Susanna White’s John le Carré adaptation merely explores the predictably familiar world of international spies. While that’s not a glowing endorsement, there’s enough technical know-how to guide audiences through a tense-enough tale of Russian mobs, corrupt officials and dirty money. You’ll never be blown away, yet certain segments do raise an eyebrow or two thanks to Stellan Skarsgård’s lovably Soviet Don personality. Ewan McGregor may play the film’s unlikely lead, but it’s Skarsgård who steals every scene through his larger-than-life, bearish mannerisms. Come for the undercover espionage, stay for a jovial Russian man calling his children assholes.

No, I’m serious.

McGregor stars as Perry Makepeace (eye roll for “descriptive” last name), a poetry teacher who becomes embroiled in a Russian mafia subplot. While visiting Morocco with his prestigious lawyer better half,

In psychological thriller Work Without Author, young artist Kurt Barnert (Tom Schilling) has fled to West-Germany, but he continues to be tormented by the experiences he made in his childhood and youth in the Nazi years and during the Gdr-regime.

When he meets the student Ellie (Paula Beer), he is convinced that he has met the love of his life and begins to create paintings that mirror not only his own fate, but also the traumas of an entire generation.
