8 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Embattled Sony chairman Amy Pascal had a “very pointed and blunt exchange” with Reverend Al Sharpton today in New York to discuss her racially insensitive jokes about President Obama that were exposed this month by Sony hackers.

According to Sharpton, Pascal committed to working together on a way to address the “cultural blindness” displayed in her emails with producer Scott Rudin. In the private exchange that was leaked online last week, the two joked that the President’s favorite films are black-themed movies like Django Unchained and 12 Years A Slave.

“Very pointed and blunt exchange w/ Amy Pascal in our 90 min meeting. Hollywood needs to change. Her leaked e mails show a cultural blindness,” Sharpton Tweeted.

“At today’s mtg w/ Sony we agreed to work towards establishing a basis to address the issues, Ms. Pascal committed to this,” he continued.

Is the Clock Ticking on Amy Pascal?

16 December 2014 10:45 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amy Pascal has led Sony Pictures for more than a decade. She’s endured activist investor Daniel Loeb’s calls for her head and the twin disasters that were “After Earth” and “White House Down.” She’s experienced the highs of the first “Spider-Man” trilogy and the lows of a Senate investigation into the torture depictions in “Zero Dark Thirty.” She’s developed a reputation for her shrewd creative sensibility, and has surprised people by her willingness to dispatch key lieutenants when it was expedient. She’s a survivor.

The hourglass may be running out on her time at Sony, however. The devastating hack attack has exposed emails that could jeopardize Pascal’s relationships with key talent throughout the industry. Most damaging from a public relations perspective is a series of racially-charged jokes Pascal made with producer Scott Rudin, during which the two suggested that President Barack Obama must enjoy “Django Unchained, »

James Bond: Christoph Waltz is not the head of Spectre

15 December 2014 8:42 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Christoph Waltz has said that he will not be playing the head of Spectre in the next James Bond film.

The comments by the actor go against the rumour that he would play the iconic Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, head of the Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion.

When asked if he would head the organisation in director Sam Mendes's Spectre, Waltz told Collider, "No. No. It's more interesting than that."

The Django Unchained star was rumoured to be taking on the role of a villain in the movie.

He was announced as playing a character called 'Oberhauser', which many took to be a misdirection similar to Benedict Cumberbatch's 'John Harrison'/Khan in Star Trek into Darkness.

Ernst Stavro Blofeld appeared as the head of Spectre in seven Bond films.

The script for Spectre was leaked during the recent Sony hacking.

Selma Director Ava DuVernay Calls Sony Emails ‘Sickening and Sad’

13 December 2014 3:33 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Among many other things, the Sony Pictures hack revealed some racist attitudes among the studio's bigwigs. In private emails, producer Scott Rudin and Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal speculated about President Obama's film taste, snickering over the idea that he would prefer films that deal with the black experience, such as 12 Years a Slave, Django Unchained, and Ride Along. The two executives have since apologized, but the sting was still being felt at a D.C. screening of Selma, which chronicles one of Martin Luther King Jr.'s most famous civil-rights marches. Director Ava DuVernay, the first black woman to be nominated for Best Director at the Golden Globes, spoke about the emails to Variety: "I have two words: sickening and sad. That’s really all I have to say." During the Q&A, moderated by PBS NewsHour co-anchor Gwen Ifill, DuVernay was more restrained, but producer Dede Gardner was more direct, »

The Muppets take on the films of Quentin Tarantino

13 December 2014 3:13 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Quentin Tarantino is one of the world’s greatest filmmakers. He’s an undeniable vault of film knowledge and, as a result, he’s a cinematic force to be reckoned with. He has also written some of the most quotable dialogue of all time and built up a body of work that has helped redefine popular culture.

He may currently be in the pre-production stages of his second Western, The Hateful Eight, but everyone knows the rules of genre don’t apply to Tarantino. Now, with this latest clip he’s proved he can even tackle family-friendly… well almost.

‘Selma’ Director Calls Sony Emails ‘Sickening and Sad’

12 December 2014 12:58 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Washington, D.C. — On the same day that she became the first black woman to receive a Golden Globe nomination for best director, “Selma” filmmaker Ava DuVernay took a moment to remark on the controversial email exchange that, for some, has highlighted a dispiriting lack of progress in some of the higher echelons of Hollywood.

“I have two words: sickening and sad,” DuVernay told Variety at Thursday night’s Washington, D.C., premiere of “Selma.” “That’s really all I have to say.”

The director was referring to one of many conversations between producer Scott Rudin and Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chair Amy Pascal that were made public as a result of the massive Sony hack attack by Guardians of Peace, a group protesting the upcoming release of the studio’s North Korea-skewering satire “The Interview.” In the exchange in question, Pascal and Rudin traded quips about President Obama’s movie tastes — which, »

Spider-Man for Avengers? Cumberbatch cast as Doctor Strange! – Watch Fmtv’s Movie Newsgasm!

12 December 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Such a handsome Holmes…

“Say Hello To My Little Friend.” That’s a clue for who Marvel have contacted to add to their ever-expanding roster – find out who in this week’s Movie Newsgasm.

Speaking of Marvel (which we do a lot of at the moment), they’ve only gone and cast Benedict Cumberbatch (The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, The Imitation Game) as Doctor Strange. “Doctor Who?” you ask. That’s an entirely different show.

And finally, we’re chatting the movie version of Wikileaks – the hacking of Sony Pictures’ internal emails. Presumably by the Kingpin or some other mistreated fomer-Marvel property. Find out a few more of their bonkers ideas (Aunt May solo movie, anyone?) right here.

Fmtv will be back very soon with our Jurassic World trailer video review and again on Friday for the Movie Newsgasm. Subscribe here to be notified first when they are live and »

Drum – The Blu Review

12 December 2014 9:41 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Mandingo, a 1975 movie based on the best-selling period potboiler by Kyle Onstott about sexual shenanigans between masters and slaves on the Falconhurst slave-breeding plantation, was savaged by critics who saw it as nothing but degrading, big-budget exploitation. Roger Ebert called it “racist trash”, a “piece of manure”, and “excruciating to sit through”. Mandingo certainly had it all; brutal violence, interracial sex, rape, infanticide, lynchings, and abundant nudity including full-frontal shots of it’s male star, boxer Ken Norton. But of course it was a huge hit and inspired a brief run of “slaverysploitation” films such as Passion Plantation (1975 aka Black Emmanuelle, White Emmanuelle ) and the cleverly titled Mandiga (1976). Mandingo was overwrought melodrama to be sure, but it’s a model of subtlety compared to its official sequel, the more lascivious Drum, a mean-spirited trash epic from 1976 that would never fly in today’s politically correct climate. Despite its spaghetti western trappings, »

Scandal” and “Grey’s Anatomy” creator Shonda Rhimes has slammed a controversial email exchange between Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal and producer Scott Rudin as “racist.”

Buzzfeed published a story late Thursday containing private notes in which the two joked that President Barack Obama’s favorite movies would star African Americans such as Kevin Hart or might include “Django Unchained” and “The Butler.”

“Calling Sony comments ‘racially insensitive remarks’ instead of ‘racist’?” Rhimes tweeted. “U can put a cherry on a pile of sh*t but it don’t make it a sundae.”

Rhimes isn’t the only public figure weighing in on the controversy. Reverend Al Sharpton likened the remarks to a series of racist comments made by former La Clippers Donald Sterling in 2013.

The leaked emails resulting from the hack into Sony has already given us details about the Spider-Man franchise and a potential Jump Street / Men in Black crossover, and now details are emerging about next year’s 007 adventure Spectre. Minor spoilers follow…

According to CNN (via Variety), there’s been some conflict between MGM Studios and producer Barbara Broccoli with regards to the film’s budget, which has been set at more than $300 million. Apparently MGM chief Jonathan Glickman has urged Broccoli to cut costs, with measures to reduce the budget such as swapping scenes set in Rome for London, using three carriages for a train sequence rather than four, dropping a “dramatic finale in the rain [to] lower the cost of visual/special effects, and showcasing the modern aspects of Mexico as an “incentive” to the Mexican market. However, Broccoli refused to budge, prompting Amy Pascal to contact Glickman stating »
