Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard: Who Do You Believe?

Who do you believe? Many people might not like to hear this but it’s very true that we live in a society that, at this time, will tend to believe women over men when it comes to domestic abuse cases such as the one that took place between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. Simply denying any and all wrongdoing on Depp’s part seems like a foolish and dangerous thing to do, though simply believing Heard’s account might be just as foolish since without hard, solid facts that can be given by one or the other individual there is a lot

How Horror Movies Influenced Brightburn

Don Kaye May 24, 2019

Director David Yarovesky’s obsession with horror movies puts a unique spin on Brightburn.

While James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy) is the big filmmaking name on the new superhero/horror hybrid Brightburn -- he produced the picture, which was written by his brother Mark and cousin Brian -- the person actually behind the camera on the movie is director David Yarovesky. A longtime friend of Gunn’s, Yarovesky cut his teeth on videos, commercials and short films before making his feature writing and directing debut with the micro-budget horror movie The Hive.

Yarovesky is still working with a relatively modest budget on Brightburn, but that’s part of the movie’s charm: in many ways it’s a bit of a throwback to the sort of mid-level horror sleepers that dominated the late 1970s and 1980s. The movie stars Elizabeth Banks and David Denman as a

Plot: A terminally ill college professor (Johnny Depp) declines all medical treatment and decides to live the last six months of his life with reckless abandon, profoundly affecting his family, friends, and students. Review: Had The Professor come out a good five years ago, it would have been a major studio release. It probably would have even gotten an awards push for its unusually committed performance…

What ABC’s ‘All in the Family’ and ‘Jeffersons’ Reboots Got Right — And Wrong

What ABC’s ‘All in the Family’ and ‘Jeffersons’ Reboots Got Right — And Wrong
There’s an episode of 21 Jump Street where the cops go undercover at a performing arts high school. Peter DeLuise’s Doug Penhall has to perform a scene in acting class, and opts to do something from an episode of the classic Fifties sitcom The Honeymooners rather than from a play. He and Johnny Depp’s Tom Hanson do pretty good impressions of Jackie Gleason and Art Carney, but the teacher’s not impressed. He tells Penhall to forget about the TV show and just play the reality of the scene.

Johnny Depp Attacks Amber Heard With “Painted-On Bruises” Claim In $50M Defamation Suit; Old Lawyers Sue Star
Fighting lawsuits on both sides of the country, Johnny Depp has upped the ante in his $50 million defamation case against Amber Heard by slagging off the injuries the Aquaman star says she suffered at his hands during their marriage as “painted-on bruises.”

The statement from Depp came came in a declaration the Pirates of the Caribbean star made recently in Virginia state court, where he filed the big-bucks lawsuit in early March. In fact, the Oscar nominee took it even further and alleged that in truth he was the subject of abuse from Heard, not the other way around.

“While mixing prescription amphetamines and non-prescription drugs with alcohol, Ms. Heard committed innumerable acts of domestic violence against me, often in the presence of a third-party witness,

Song You Need to Know: Mattiel, ‘Je Ne Me Connais Pas’

With a cutting garage-rock guitar riff and vocals that squeal with excitement, Mattiel sound like they’re embracing their very own manifest destiny — or, at least, making fun of dudes who think that way — on “Je Ne Me Connais Pas,” the latest single from the Atlanta band’s upcoming Satis Factory album. Singer Mattiel Brown toys with toxic masculinity throughout the three-minute song, declaring herself a “Lone Star Man” who’s “gonna get kicked right off my high horse.” The punch line is the chorus: “I don’t know myself” in French.

‘The Invisible Man’: Release Date Emerges For Blumhouse Redo

Universal has set a March 13, 2020 release date for The Invisible Man, the Blumhouse-produced take on the Uni monster franchise that will star Elisabeth Moss. Leigh Whannell is aboard to write and direct the pic, which now will begin production in Sydney in July.

The pic’s release date had been bookmarked for an Untitled Blumhouse Productions Project. It still is going head-to-head on the date with Warner Bros’ own monster mashup Godzilla vs. Kong.

The release date news Monday comes as Deadline just revealed Storm Reid will join Moss in the cast of the thriller. Johnny Depp had been involved with the project to star but that tie-up previously disappeared.

Details are also sketchy about the plot, but as part of Uni’s idea to open-source the classic characters to filmmakers inspired to create their own unique stories, there were no budget, genre or rating restriction.

Good Omens Review

Written back in 1990, the bestselling fantasy comedy novel Good Omens from Neil Gaiman – who’d just started The Sandman for Vertigo a year earlier – and the late, great Sir Terry Pratchett was published and has never gone out of favor since. The hilarious, imaginative tale of an angel and demon teaming up to save the world when the Antichrist is born had obvious cinematic potential. So, it’s not a surprise that Terry Gilliam once developed a movie version in the early 00s with Johnny Depp and Robin Williams attached to star.

However, the project – ironically, for a story about the spawn of the devil – dwelt in development hell for years. That is, until Gaiman decided to take matters into his own hands. After Pratchett asked his co-writer to helm the TV adaptation of the book that was in early development at the time (in a letter delivered posthumously), Good Omens finally got going.

Sleepy Hollow: 3 Things They Kept The Same (& 8 Things They Changed) From The Tim Burton Movie

Sleepy Hollow came out of nowhere to crack out 4 seasons of seriously good demonic adventure. Most people at the time were only familiar with the most recent adaptation by Tim Burton starring Johnny Depp, so taking that iconic story and transplanting the key elements into modern-day allowed for some hellish fun. Tom Mison helmed the new series as the displaced Ichabod Crane alongside Nicole Behari as Lieutenant Abbie Mills in a sort-of Mulder and Scully fashion that clicked instantly.

While the original story of Sleepy Hollow and The Headless Horseman has been adapted plenty of times, these two versions are getting the comparison treatment.
