‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ May Not Screen at Cannes Due to a Lawsuit Claiming Terry Gilliam Doesn’t Own the Rights to It

‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ May Not Screen at Cannes Due to a Lawsuit Claiming Terry Gilliam Doesn’t Own the Rights to It
After a tortured production process that lasted two decades, “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” was recently announced as the closing-night selection at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Anyone who knows how difficult it was for Terry Gilliam to complete his passion project inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ timeless novel will be unsurprised by the news that it’s hit yet another snag, this time in the form of a lawsuit from a producer who claims he owns the rights to the film.

Paolo Branco and his company Alfama Films Production are seeking an injunction to prevent Cannes from screening “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,” with a statement claiming that its rights to the project “have been confirmed in three separate legal rulings.”

“Alfama Films Production has been granted permission to obtain a writ against the Cannes Film Festival and will ask the president of the Paris District

Westworld: Yes, That New Guy Is Exactly Who You Think He Is

Image Source: HBO

HBO finally gave us the season two premiere of Westworld, and it was intense on so many levels that our heads are still spinning. It was unnerving, it was violent, and it introduced us to Delos Incorporated's Head of Operations, Karl Strand. Think you recognize this season's newest cast member? You do. While so many things in Westworld aren't always as they appear, that really is Gustaf Skarsgård. Yes, from that Skarsgård family.

Wondering if and where you've seen the head of Westworld's security team before? Don't worry. We dug up some the info on this Swedish native for you.

Gustaf's most notable role is that of Floki on History Channel's epic series Vikings. He plays an innovative shipbuilder and religious zealot who is no stranger to conflict. We're sure we'll be seeing some of that genius spilling over into Westworld as he tries to

'Borg vs. McEnroe' Review: Legendary Tennis Showdown Gives Shia the Spotlight

'Borg vs. McEnroe' Review: Legendary Tennis Showdown Gives Shia the Spotlight
Anyone who's ever psyched themselves out prepping for a game, any game – life included – should take a look at Borg vs. McEnroe. There's a lesson to be learned in watching two tennis titans go at it in a movie dished out for maximum entertainment and a sneaky sense of unease. It's Wimbledon, 1980, and Swedish champion Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) is going for a record-breaking fifth Wimbledon title against bratty American newcomer John McEnroe (Shia Labeouf). Ancient history? Maybe. Tennis buffs all know how it turned out. Uninitiated millennials, not so much.

Borg vs McEnroe movie review: they get served

MaryAnn’s quick take… Excruciatingly suspenseful and unexpectedly moving portrait of the on-court rivalry between the two great tennis players… and the intriguing secret layer to the public dynamic between them. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a sports fan

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto) women’s participation in this film

(learn more about this)

If you don’t already know who won the men’s singles tennis championship at Wimbledon in 1980, then for the sake of your own entertainment, try not to find out before you see Borg vs McEnroe, which is absolutely worth your time even if you don’t give a fig about tennis. I couldn’t possibly care less about the sport, and I nevertheless found this depiction of that Wimbledon final match — considered by some to be the finest tennis game ever — to be incredibly tense and gripping.

‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ Official Trailer

A film twenty years in the making finally has a trailer! Terry Gilliam‘s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote has had a slew of misfortune since in production.

‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ First Trailer: Terry Gilliam’s Fantastical Vision Is 20 Years in the Making

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in April 2018

Spring is here, love is in the air, and everyone is finally ready to go back outside, but Netflix’s April offerings are giving us at least seven more compelling reasons to stay on the couch for at least another few weeks. This month brings an eclectic mix of new movies to the streaming platform, from the sweet Americana of “The Iron Giant” to the decidedly less sweet Americana of “Scarface” — from the mad brilliance of Philip Seymour Hoffman in “Along Came Polly” to the brilliant madness of the Wachowskis’ “Speed Racer.” We’ve also got “Deep Blue Sea” and David Fincher’s “Se7en,” two very different movies about two very different monsters (super sharks and Kevin Spacey, respectively).

Here are the seven best movies that are new to Netflix this April.

Gilliam has spent the best part of two decades trying to get his adaptation of Miguel de Cervantes’ classic novel off the ground. In 2000, he started shooting the movie with a cast that included Jean Rochefort as Don Quixote and Johnny Depp as his lead character Toby, only for the production to encounter numerous difficulties before it was eventually abandoned. The failed effort was documented in the 2002 film Lost in La Mancha.
