Jodie Foster to Star in Crime Thriller ‘Hotel Artemis’

The Mel Gibson Comeback: Will Hollywood Let This Outsider Back In?

6 November 2016 2:11 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For the last ten years, Mel Gibson and Hollywood have been deeply estranged. But this weekend’s opening of “Hacksaw Ridge,” his powerfully crafted, bloody-heart-on-the-sleeve drama about the most heroic pacifist — or maybe the only pacifist — to serve in World War II, marks their official reconciliation. After all the scandals and feuds and recriminations, after the fizzled misfire of a comeback attempt (his 2011 performance as a head case who communicates through a hand puppet in “The Beaver”), after the “interesting” trickle of VOD-ready curios like “Get the Gringo” and “Blood Father,” Gibson, at last, has returned. “Hacksaw Ridge” is a large-scale traditional war film that has been praised by critics, has now opened solidly at the box office, and is a potential awards contender. (Likeliest shot: Andrew Garfield for a best actor nomination.)

That said, the behavior that capsized Mel Gibson’s career will, on some level, never be totally behind him. »

Jennifer Lawrence Pays Tribute Jodie Foster, Who’s Happy to Hand Off Title of ‘Clumsiest Actress in Hollywood’

29 October 2016 2:31 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Call it a mutual admiration society: one-time child actress turned Academy Award-winning movie star Jennifer Lawrence paid tribute to one-time child actress turned two-time Oscar winner and filmmaker Jodie Foster, who admitted that the two also share a history of clumsiness at awards ceremonies.

Dressed in a draping mauve Elie Saab gown, Lawrence, 26, took the stage at the British Academy’s Britannia Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills to present Foster, 53, with the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film on Friday. Foster, clad in a shimmering Burberry gown, was accompanied by her wife Alexandra Hedison »

Britannias Beat the Drum for British and American Academy Awards

29 October 2016 2:06 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

How do you get someone to schlep to Los Angeles, decked out in black tie, to accept an awards tribute? You grab them when they have something to promote—and a studio willing to support costs of video, travel, styling and table.

This year’s British Academy Britannia Awards were enjoyably hosted by Brit comedian Ben “Doc” Brown Smith, who raps well enough to audition for “Hamilton” and was eager to raise his stateside profile.

The winner of the night’s big prize, the Albert R. Broccoli Award for Worldwide Contribution to Entertainment, Samuel L. Jackson, is an awards perennial, with directors Quentin Tarantino and Spike Lee happy to sing his praises on the Tribute video. This year, he was promoting Warner Bros.’ “Kong: Skull Island,” which was why his elegant costar and recent Best Actress Oscar-winner Brie Larson did the presenting honors.

Jennifer Lawrence Hits the Red Carpet Solo After Sparking New Romance Rumors

29 October 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jennifer Lawrence practically floated down the red carpet when she arrived at the Britannia Awards in La on Friday night. The 26-year-old, who was recently named Forbes's highest paid actress of 2016, stunned in a gorgeous blush Elie Saab gown and was on hand to present her The Beaver costar and director Jodie Foster with the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award For Excellence in Film. As Jennifer welcomed Jodie to the stage, she announced, "Please welcome my vote for the next president of the United States." After popping up in NYC to support pal Emma Stone at a screening of La La Land earlier this month, reports surfaced that Jennifer is dating 47-year-old director Darren Aronofsky. According to a source close to the star, "They've been hanging out and are casually dating," and over the Summer, the two were spotted having lunch at a cafe.

Rob Leane Oct 24, 2016

Great news: Jodie Foster is set to direct a Black Mirror instalment in the near future.

When Netflix bought Black Mirror from Channel 4, the initial announcement told us to expect 12 new episodes from Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones' misery-inducing anthology series. So far, six of these stories have arrived online. Today we've got some details about the next batch.

"Halfway through the writing of that already", Mr Brooker said to The Independent, regarding Black Mirror series 4.

Interviewer Jacob Stolworthy then tried to eke out some details, asking if Brooker would consider something completely different, era-wise, such as a medieval episode.

Brooker responded thusly: "Weirdly, »

Jodie Foster to Direct Rosemarie DeWitt in ‘Black Mirror’ Season 4 Episode

19 October 2016 11:10 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jodie Foster is set to direct a season-four episode of Netflix’s “Black Mirror,” with Rosemarie DeWitt starring. The new season of the science-fiction anthology will begin production later this year and premiere in 2017.

Netflix last year ordered 12 additional episodes of the series from executive producers and showrunners Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones, splitting the order up into two six-episode seasons. Season three premieres Friday. Previous seasons have featured stars such as Jon Hamm, Hayley Atwell, Domhnall Gleeson, and Jessica Findlay-Brown.

An anthology in the vein of “The Twilight Zone,” telling dark stories steeped in technology, “Black Mirror” is written primarily by Brooker. The first two seasons premiered on the U.K.’s Channel 4 before later migrating to Netflix.

“I’ve always been a fan of one-off, quirky, weird stories you’d see on ‘The Twilight Zone’ or ‘Tales of the Unexpected,’” Brooker recently told Variety. “Also, the BBC would put on one-off plays that were »

Movie Review: Mel Gibson attempts an action-comedy comeback in Blood Father

10 August 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Would it be easier for Mel Gibson to make a comeback if every attempt wasn’t some kind of self-reflexive star text? There are Hollywood stars (and respected filmmakers) with worse misdeeds and uglier personal lives, but Gibson, the traditionalist Catholic fixated on torture, is hell-bent on suffering for his sins on screen. Five years after starring as a personally fractured family man in The Beaver, and after an assortment of high-profile projects that fell apart (including one about the Maccabees), he returns in Blood Father, a pulpy father-daughter action-comedy that plays like a mea culpa. Alcoholism, racism, anti-Semitism, men abusing women—just about anything Gibson has ever been documented doing or accused of is there, with the star on hand to acknowledge that it is in fact bad, as though asking for a reduced sentence in the court of public opinion.

Pulse-Pounding Blood Father Trailer Sends Mel Gibson On A Rampage

8 July 2016 9:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If Mel Gibson has been quietly staging a career comeback in recent years with roles in The Expendables 3 and Jodie Foster’s The Beaver, then 2016 could well go down as a defining turning point for the divisive Aussie.

For the first time since Apocalypto ten years ago, Gibson is back behind the lens for Hacksaw Ridge, the Oscar-friendly war thriller due to land in November. He’s also lined up a starring role in Blood Father, an old-school thriller that reads like Taken repurposed for the sun-kissed plains of Albuquerque.

Jean-François Richet is behind the lens, with Gibson stepping into the dusty shoes of an ex-convict turned vengeful patriarch, who “fights to protect his estranged daughter from the drug cartel that is hunting her down. In this thrilling action film, John Link must use his connections from his past life and his skills as an ex-criminal to keep him and his daughter alive. »
