Michelle Williams movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Brokeback Mountain,’ ‘My Week with Marilyn’
Michelle Williams has always gone her own way. The Montana-born actress was legally emancipated from her parents at age 15 so that she could better pursue her acting career and pursue it she did. By age 18, she was starring in the popular TV drama “Dawson’s Creek,” in which she played Meg, a loose big-city teen who relocates to small-town life. In her time away from the TV series, she acted in many small independent films, none of which connected until 2003, when one finally did — Tom McCarthy‘s “The Station Agent,” in which she played a small-town librarian who becomes close to a socially-withdrawn dwarf (Peter Dinklage). That performance earned Williams her first SAG Awards nomination for Best Ensemble.

If Dwayne Johnson Is Hollywood’s Biggest Star, Why Did ‘Rampage’ Open Soft?

If Dwayne Johnson Is Hollywood’s Biggest Star, Why Did ‘Rampage’ Open Soft?
“Rampage” opened #1 last weekend at just under $36 million, with Dwayne Johnson its only name draw. Is that enough to make The Rock the biggest movie star in Hollywood — or, is his greatest asset the near-complete dearth of actors who can open movies?

Johnson’s marquee value is well documented. Since 2011, he appeared in eight films that grossed over $100 million (nine if you include the animated “Moana”). “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and “The Fate of the Furious” in 2017 each exceeded $200 million. However, times have changed. Once, being a top star meant your movies were always the year’s biggest movies. Now, in an era where animation and comic-book adaptations are the biggest draws, an actor’s own larger-than-life appeal is less important.

Rampage” should make around $90 million domestic and another $300 million or so additional overseas. Expect it to make $400 worldwide, perhaps a little more. With production and marketing costs topping $220 million,

Is Dwayne Johnson Hollywood’s Most Bankable Star?

Is Dwayne Johnson Hollywood’s Most Bankable Star?
With less than stellar reviews on top of an already cursed genre, it’s a wonder “Rampage” wasn’t a total flop at the box office.

Well, it’s not a total wonder. After back and forth projections showed “Rampage” wrestling with “A Quiet Place” to see who would come out on top at the box office last weekend, there is one main reason the video game adaptation secured the crown: Dwayne Johnson.

“It’s good old star power at work here,” box office analyst Jeff Bock said. “There’s not that many people in this day and age who can pull this off.”

Did Johnson break the video game adaptation curse? Probably not. Did his sheer star power push “Rampage” to the No. 1 spot at the worldwide box office? It seems likely.

Rampage” bowed with $34.5 million in North America, along with an impressive $114 million overseas for a global total of $148.6 million.

Joaquin Phoenix Wouldn’t Be Afraid To Follow In Heath Ledger’s Footsteps As The Joker

Warner Bros.’ untitled Joker origin film is perhaps the most exciting production presently gestating. When it was announced last year that The Hangover director Todd Phillips would helm the picture, news that Martin Scorsese had signed on as co-producer soon followed, and a casting decision seemed imminent with Academy Award winner Leonardo DiCaprio being eyed for the titular role.

While Phillips and Scorsese remain attached, the rumours about DiCaprio’s impending casting dispersed and have since been replaced with hearsay surrounding another A-lister, Joaquin Phoenix. Granted, nothing’s been confirmed just yet and making things more confusing is the fact that the actor refuses to comment on it.

That continues today, as in a recent interview with Collider, the 43-year-old maintained that he doesn’t know anything about the film. Still, he did say that following in Heath Ledger’s footsteps wouldn’t be a big deal as his take

Paul Thomas Anderson Doesn’t Understand How Quentin Tarantino Could Want to Retire After 10 Films

Paul Thomas Anderson Doesn’t Understand How Quentin Tarantino Could Want to Retire After 10 Films
When it comes to directing, Paul Thomas Anderson is in it for the long haul. The Oscar-nominated filmmaker made it clear during a discussion on “Phantom Thread” that he has no plans to retire from feature filmmaking in the future. “This is what I want to do as long as I’m able to do it,” Anderson said.

Anderson was responding to a question about how long directors can sustain a certain level of artistic dominance. The moderator noted that it’s hard for many directors to put together several decades of notable work, and yet somehow Anderson has managed to never fall off his peak. The director has been making features since 1996’s “Hard Eight,” and 22 years later his prominence has only gotten greater. “Phantom Thread” earned Anderson his second Oscar nomination for direction, among five other nominations this year.

“Apparently there was a kind of health report that

Vote for Your Favorite '90s Heartthrob

Vote for Your Favorite '90s Heartthrob
In the '90s, were there three letters dreamier than J-t-t? Maybe you say, indeed there were. Thanks to the popularity of Home Improvement, Jonathan Taylor Thomas became one of the most popular heartthrobs during that decade, adorning many teenagers' walls and now-defunct teen magazines with his smiling presence. Joining him were the likes of Jared Leto, who played bad boy Jordan Catalano on MTV's short-lived cult teen series My So-Called Life. He was so good at staring. And his fans loved—and many still do love—to stare right back at him. And Leonardo DiCaprio...yup, an Og '90s heartthrob. Speaking of bad boys, Ryan Phillippe's...

Nicolas Cage Thinks He’d Make A Great Joker

Whether or not Joaquin Phoenix will portray the titular character in Todd Phillips’ untitled Joker origin film remains as unclear as ever. Last week, the three-time Oscar nominee was asked, point-blank, by Fandango if he will indeed be starring in the standalone DC pic, to which he replied with a “mischievous grin” on his face, “I don’t know… it could be an interesting character, I don’t know.”

A few days later, Entertainment Weekly proposed the same question to Phoenix, who appeared to backtrack on his Fandango comments a little, stating, “this is all super interesting. I have no idea about this. There’s absolutely nothing I could say about this subject.”

Phoenix has been affixed to the role, through no fault of his own, since early February when Variety reported that the actor was in early talks to play the Joker in the Martin Scorsese-produced movie. He

‘Annihilation’ Director Alex Garland Speaks Out on Screwing With Genre and Studio Panic Attacks

‘Annihilation’ Director Alex Garland Speaks Out on Screwing With Genre and Studio Panic Attacks
The brainy 47-year-old son of a British political cartoonist, Alex Garland made his name with novels “The Beach” and “The Tesseract” before moving on to a tortuous relationship with Hollywood. After Leonardo DiCaprio starred in Danny Boyle’s movie version of “The Beach” (Fox), Garland turned to screenwriting on two original grim visions of the future for Boyle and Fox Searchlight, zombiefest “28 Days Later” and sci-fi space trip “Sunshine,” both starring Cillian Murphy, followed by 2012 comic-book flop “Dredd” (Lionsgate).

Backed by Focus Features, Garland’s stunning directorial debut “Ex Machina,” a tense sci-fi three-hander starring Oscar Isaac as a genius robot designer, Alicia Vikander as his wily femme bot, and Domnhall Gleeson as the gullible man who falls for her, was inexplicably rejected for theatrical release and was taken on by A24. Focus president Peter Schlessel lost his job when the movie scored $25 million domestic and two Oscar nominations (including

Hidden Figures is Second Series Based on the Early Days of the Space Program Being Developed By Nat Geo

I'm sure you all remember the wonderful film Hidden Figures that was released in 2016. The film was based on the book which told the true story of the African-American female mathematicians who were instrumental in the early days of the American space program. According to Variety, Nat Geo is now developing a TV series inspired by this story.

The film, which starred Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, and Jim Parsons, was nominated for three Academy Awards, including best picture. I loved the movie and the story that it told and I hope that the TV series ends up being just as good.

The series is in the early stages of development and is being executive produced Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping, who both produced the film as well.

This isn't the only series that the network is developing that is set during the early days of the space program.
