Orion Pictures Sets Acclaimed Composer Bear McCreary For Child’S Play

Orion Pictures announced today that Emmy® and BAFTA Award-winn composer Bear McCreary has been brought on to score the reimagining of the 1988 horror classic Child’S Play. The upcoming film follows Karen (Aubrey Plaza), a single mother who gifts her son Andy (Gabriel Bateman) a Buddi doll, unaware of its more sinister nature and stars Plaza, Bateman, Brian Tyree Henry and recently revealed Mark Hamill as the voice of Chucky.

KatzSmith’s Aaron Schmidt said, “Bear comes with boundless ideas and energy, and his approach to this score has been incredible to witness. He’s developed themes and melodies that underscore our horror, our emotion and our AI concept while combining unique instruments and toys from around the world with his orchestral score. He’s elevated every moment of the film he’s touched.”

Child’S Play is directed by Lars Klevberg (“Polaroid”) from a script by Tyler Burton Smith

Film Review: Mel Gibson in ‘The Professor and the Madman’

  • Variety
Back in 1998 when Simon Winchester’s book “The Professor and the Madman” was published, a film version was already imagined by quite a few reviewers, spurred on not only by the subject’s eminently dramatic trajectory but also by Mel Gibson’s much publicized interest. It seemed implausible: Gibson wasn’t the obvious choice for a Victorian-era biopic about James Murray, the man commissioned to bring the Oxford English Dictionary (Oed) to life, but his involvement made it more likely that a dictionary compiler’s story could be packaged as something marketable to a general public. The star decided not to direct, novice filmmaker Farhad Safinia was brought in, and shooting wrapped in 2016. That’s when grumblings began to be heard publicly.

Officially, Safinia and Gibson wanted to add a few weeks of shooting at Oxford University to boost the authenticity. Voltage Picture’s CEO Nicolas Chartier balked, complaining they

‘Teen Spirit’ Review: Smells Like Elle Fanning’s Chance to Shine
Some singers start young, before they have a clue about how the music business can chew up their talent and package it for mass consumption. Take Violet, the 17-year-old dreamer played with shy loveliness and a tough core by the luminous Elle Fanning. Violet lives in a tight squeeze on the Isle of Wight, where she’s mocked by schoolmates for singing for drunks at a local pub and berated by her Polish immigrant mother (Agnieszka Grochowska) for believing in fantasies that pay off in heartbreak.

5 Movies Starring Kate Winslet You May Have Not Heard About

When someone mentions Kate Winslet’s name, probably the first thing that comes to your mind is Titanic. This is quite expected because the movie “Titanic” is one of the highest grossing Hollywood movies of all time.

This British actress is also famous for her roles in “Quills,” “The Reader,” and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” Very few know that before debuting in the “Heavenly Creatures,” Kate appeared in the “Adrian Mole,” “Peter Pan,” and “Get Back,” all of which are British productions.

In any case, many of us know Kate as an A-list actress who only stars in blockbusters. But a few movies where she appears went undeservedly unnoticed, some only featured her in a small role, and some of them were complete disasters.

As Kate’s fan, you might want to watch some cool movies starring Kate, and some cringy ones that are not as famous as her masterpieces as well.

Lost Angels: When a Beastie Boy Starred in the Best Youth Culture Film of the Late 80s [Rewind]

Lost Angels: When a Beastie Boy Starred in the Best Youth Culture Film of the Late 80s [Rewind]
When I heard that Adam Horovitz (aka Ad-Rock from the Beastie Boys) was going to be starring in a movie, even though I wasn't the biggest Beasties fan, this was a film I had to see. So my brother and I went to the one movie theater in Orange County, Ca where Lost Angels was playing. The theater was filled with seats (only three of them had humans in them) and the movie proceeded to play on the screen.. To be honest, aside from Horovitz channeling an even more aloof James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause, Lost Angels wasn't some monumental viewing experience for me. However, it's themes of alienated youth, cultural appropriation, and the lengths a young person would go just to belong were poignant, hard hitting and, frankly, unforgettable.

Lost Angels was a low budget endeavor even by 1988 standards. Made for a pittance ($1.2 million dollars) it is

Charlize Theron Is
If you're sexy and single yet nobody asks you out, you're not alone. In fact, you're in the same boat as Charlize Theron! While promoting her upcoming film Long Shot in Las Vegas on Thursday, the stunning and statuesque Oscar winner announced that not only is she "shockingly available," but that she's also disappointed that someone hasn't had the courage to change that. "I've been single for 10 years, it's not a long shot," Charlize told Entertainment Tonight at CinemaCon. "Somebody just needs to grow a pair and step up." At that point, her Long Shot costar Seth Rogen chimed in. "She's shockingly available. She's out there," he added, to which Charlize insisted that she's "made it very clear."

The actress and mother of two was last linked to Sean Penn; they called off their engagement in June 2015 after two years together. Prior to that, Charlize was in an eight-year relationship with actor Stuart Townsend.

Mel Gibson On ‘The Professor & The Madman’ “Disappointment” & Legal Battle
Exclusive: The long legal tussle involving Mel Gibson and director Farhad Safinia against Voltage Pictures over The Professor and the Madman was settled confidentially this week, but the man who once played Mad Max is not happy with the results.

Mel Gibson Settles ‘Professor and the Madman’ Suit Ahead of Release
Mel Gibson has settled a legal battle with Voltage Pictures over “The Professor and the Madman,” a film that tells the gothic backstory of the Oxford English Dictionary.

Gibson sued the production company in 2017, alleging that it had reneged on a deal to give him approval of the final cut. Gibson stars as Professor James Murray, the lexicographer who edited the original Oed. Sean Penn plays the role of William Minor, who contributed to the dictionary from the confines of a lunatic asylum.

The film is set for a limited release on May 10.

Gibson and director Farhad Safinia walked off the set in January 2017, after Voltage CEO Nicolas Chartier balked at shooting scenes at the University of Oxford. Chartier alleged that the film was already behind schedule and over budget, and wanted to shoot the scenes instead at Trinity College in Dublin.

Georgia’s “Heartbeat Bill” Passes House, Heads To Governor’s Desk With Hollywood Watching

  • Deadline
The Georgia House of Representatives narrowly passed a piece of legislation Friday known as the “Heartbeat Bill” that, if signed into law by Gov. Brian Kemp, would ban abortions in the state after a fetal heartbeat is detected, or about six weeks.

The 92-78 “yes” vote (91 votes were needed for passage) on Hb 481 comes as several members of the Hollywood film and TV industry — which generated $2.7 billion in direct spending in Georgia over the past year — have been calling for the bill to be voted down after it passed through the state Senate a week ago. Those calls came in part via an open letter penned earlier this week by Alyssa Milano to Georgia House Speaker David Ralston and Kemp as well as a warning from the WGA..

Dozens Of Hollywood Actors Pledge To Battle Georgia Filming If “Heartbeat Bill” Passes
