Is it Possible We’ll Ever See a “The Brazilian Job” Movie?

At this point it’s kind of easy to state that not a lot of people, if any, remember that there was once a plan to create a sequel to The Italian Job. The Brazilian Job would have likely been kind of the same in many regards but at the very least it would have pulled together most if not all of the original cast. Obviously Donald Sutherland and Edward Norton wouldn’t have been there unless it had been made into a prequel but as it was supposed to be a sequel there’s not much chance of this. Instead the sequel

Edward Norton & Matt Damon Cheated At A Poker Game Hosted By The Weinsteins Thanks To ‘Rounders’

Rounders” is a movie that many people probably haven’t seen. Sadly, when the film was released 20 years ago, Miramax pulled the poker drama from theaters after only three weeks. Slowly, but surely, over the ensuing years, thanks to DVDs and cable, “Rounders” has begun to get a little bit of well-deserved recognition for being a pretty great film. That recognition comes thanks, in no small part, to the two leads — Matt Damon and Edward Norton.

Skin review – Jamie Bell swaps nazism for love in moral tale of far right

Drama based on true story of a reformed American white supremacist opts for sensationalism over complexity

The brand of fascism on display in Skin, Israeli film-maker Guy Nattiv’s first feature produced in the United States, feels increasingly remote. Nazism is on the rise in the Us, but it’s not all spitting and yowling from feral soldiers in training. They have cleaned themselves up and had slick haircuts in place of the standard skinhead look. They’re on TV and the internet and electoral ballots. Even if Skin wasn’t drawn from true events that played out during the mid-noughties, it would feel entrenched in a recent past.

Bryon Widner, a member of the white supremacist group the Vinlanders Social Club, belonged to a different era of hate. When we first see him, he’s a monster in the mould of Edward Norton’s Derek Vinyard from American History X,

‘Celebrity Skin’ at 20: Hole, Hollywood and the Reinvention of Courtney Love

‘Celebrity Skin’ at 20: Hole, Hollywood and the Reinvention of Courtney Love
By the time Hole‘s third album Celebrity Skin had been released in the fall of 1998, the world had already met two different Courtney Loves. The first was a vitriolic weapon of self-destruction: a brash bottle blonde with smeared red lipstick, ripped tights and coquettish babydoll dresses, who growled and sneered with the best of them. The word “troubled” became synonymous with her name and bled into her music: the Pacific Northwest-bred alt-rock band married riot grrrl ethos with the heaviness of the grunge scene her husband Kurt Cobain became the wearied face of.

Edward Norton Never Gave Any Feedback To Mark Ruffalo About His Hulk

Remember when Edward Norton was Bruce Banner/The Hulk? I don’t blame you if it’s a fuzzy memory, as The Incredible Hulk is definitely one of the most forgettable McU movies and its events aren’t referenced very often. Despite the film not being that great, though, Norton’s Banner is one of the highlights, with the actor giving the role some genuine depth and pathos.

Considering the amount of research he did for the part, you might expect that he’d have a little feedback for Mark Ruffalo, who Marvel Studios recast as Banner. But, according to Ruffalo in an interview with The Marvelists, that wasn’t the case.

“We’ve never really talked about it. I was just kinda like, ‘Is this okay?’ and he was like, ‘Man, all’s fair in love and war.’ And planet Hulk and World War Hulk. He never gave me any feedback.

Mark Ruffalo Teases Avengers 4’s “Mind-Blowing” CGI For The Hulk

The Incredible Hulk has come an awful long way since his first McU appearance 10 years ago.

For one, he’s swapped out Edward Norton for Mark Ruffalo, while the CGI technology used to render Marvel’s Jade Giant has come on in leaps and bounds. Thor: Ragnarok is perhaps the most recent example of that CG wizardry at work, given the Hulk spent most of Avengers: Infinity War hiding within Bruce Banner – much to the bemusement of Tony Stark.

As we approach Avengers 4, though, Mark Ruffalo’s confident that the technology underpinning Joe and Anthony Russo’s blockbuster sequel will effectively knock our socks off, and explained exactly why during his recent appearance on the Marvelites Podcast.

I mean the technology’s come so far now – and just wait ’til you see the next one [Avengers 4]. What we’re able to do with the technology is mind-blowing!

Wes Anderson will make a 1940s musical for his next film

It looks like Wes Anderson (Isle of Dogs) is already gearing up for his next film. According to The Playlist and the French outlet Charente Libre, the director’s next project will be set in post-wwii France.

‘American History X’ Director Tony Kaye Is Casting an Artificial Intelligent Robot to Lead New Movie
Tony Kaye is making a dramatic casting move for his upcoming feature “2nd Born.” According to Deadline, the “American History X” filmmaker is using an artificial intelligence robot to play one of the lead roles in his new movie. The idea to cast a real robot came from Kaye and producer Sam Khoze. The filmmaker does not want to cast a human actor in makeup or have to rely on computer-generated effects.

According to Deadline, the robot will be trained in different acting methods and techniques prior to filming. Kaye and Khoze are hoping to get the robot SAG recognition.

“2nd Born” is the sequel to Ali Atshani’s “1st Born,” an indie film starring Val Kilmer, Tom Berenger, Greg Grunberg, William Baldwin, and Denise Richards. The original film is being released this year by Lotus Entertainment and centers on a married couple whose first pregnancy forces their families to find common ground.

"Rounders" - It's Your Deal

  • SneakPeek
Before high stakes, card-playing 'poker games' became a standard in syndicated TV series, the feature "Rounders (1998), starring Matt Damon and Edward Norton, gave moviegoers a romantic view of the game as a way of life, with 'Texas hold 'em', the game of choice throughout the entire film:

There’s a long history of actors winning Oscars for portraying Nazis in war films. But playing a Neo-Nazi? That’s a different story.

Topher Grace made headlines when it was revealed he would be playing former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke in Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman,” opening this Friday.

Spike Lee’s 9 Best Movies — IndieWire Critics Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday.

This week’s question: In honor of “BlacKkKlansman,” which opens in theaters this Friday, what is Spike Lee’s best film?

4 Little Girls” (1997) Jacqueline Coley (@THATJacqueline), Rotten Tomatoes

I was sorely tempted to choose “Do The Right Thing” as Spike Lee’s best film and it seems the logical choice. What Spike did with “Do The Right Thing” forever changed cinema, for filmmakers everywhere, but especially for African Americans. It’s brilliant, that’s beyond dispute but, it’s not his best.

His best is a quiet little documentary he released in 1997 about 4 little girls who were murdered by the Kkk in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963. “4 Little Girls” power is in the faces. The faces of girl’s families the member of the Civil rights movements and are impossible to shake.

Edward Norton’s Production Company Sued Over Death of Firefighter in ‘Motherless Brooklyn’ Blaze
The estate of a firefighter who died after battling a fire during the filming of the upcoming Edward Norton film “Motherless Brooklyn” has filed suit against Norton’s production company, Class 5, according to court papers obtained by TheWrap.

In the suit, filed in New York Supreme Court, the estate of Michael Davidson says that the New York City building where the filming took place was classified as a residential property. However, the suit alleges that Class 5 converted the building into a movie set without taking the proper precautions.

The suit, which also names the owner of the building as a defendant and seeks unspecified damages, says that Class 5 converted the premises into a movie set and conducted a movie production without installing sprinklers or fire safety safeguards on the premises, and without preserving the integrity of the structure, including firestopping, electrical service and mechanical equipment.
