‘The New Pope’ First Look: Jude Law and John Malkovich Bring Religious Power Back to HBO

‘The New Pope’ First Look: Jude Law and John Malkovich Bring Religious Power Back to HBO
Jude Law and John Malkovich join forces as two religious powerhouses in the first look at HBO’s “The New Pope.” The limited series is Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino’s follow-up to “The Young Pope,” which earned critical acclaim when it debuted on HBO in January 2017. Sorrentino is once again directing all eight episodes of the series and co-wrote the scripts with Umberto Contarello and Stefano Bises.

While HBO has debuted our first look at “The New Pope” above, the network is not giving any plot details away. Whether or not “The New Pope” is a continuation of the story in “The Young Pope” has yet to be confirmed, although the official photo suggests that’s the case as it features Jude Law looking very much like his original character Lenny Belardo/Pope Pius Xiii. John Malkovich’s casting was confirmed in July 2018, and the legendary actor is expected to

The New Pope First Look: Jude Law and John Malkovich Make Quite a Papal Pair

His Holiness… es?

HBO has graced us with our first look at The New Pope, a sequel series to the 2017 miniseries The Young Pope, which starred Jude Law as brash fictional pontiff Lenny, aka Pope Pius Xiii. Based on the new photo above, Law will reprise his role as Lenny in the eight-episode series, joined by new cast addition John Malkovich. HBO is mum on Malkovich’s New Pope role, but judging by his pristine vestments and skullcap — not to mention the series title — we’re betting he’s Lenny replacement in the Vatican. (The Young Pope‘s finale ended with Lenny collapsing,

The New Pope: First Image From HBO's Young Pope Sequel Series

Joseph Baxter Jan 9, 2019

The New Pope, HBO’s sequel series to The Young Pope, will see return Jude Law joined by co-star John Malkovich.

While HBO’s 2016 series The Young Pope was intended as a limited series prestige project from BAFTA-winning director Paolo Sorrentino, plans subsequently emerged for a follow-up series, titled The New Pope. Indeed, the follow up series will showcase a new pope, since HBO has sent white smoke signals of confirmation for Oscar-winning actor John Malkovich.

John Malkovich was revealed as the star of HBO’s The New Pope back in July. While the details of Malkovich’s character were not provided (and remain scarce as of this January 9 update), the very title of the follow-up series does little to hide the fate of said character. While the title, The New Pope, has been known for over a year, having arrived quickly after The Young Pope completed its run,

The Academy Invites 928 New Members, from Daniel Kaluuya to Sufjan Stevens

In an astonishing move to swell the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences membership ranks, a record 928 artists and executives from 59 countries have been invited to join this year. The branches have increasingly actively sought eligible people to become Academy members, but the Board of Governors makes the final call; this year, they did not invite Kobe Bryant although he won an Oscar for animated short “Dear Basketball.”

Clearly, people of color (38 percent) and women (49 percent) are among the many invites, as the Academy continues to address its long-term white-male dominance. As always, actors make up the largest branch of the Academy, but many new members also come from overseas.

In 2017, the Academy invited 744 new members.

Seventeen Oscar winners are among the new invited members (Melissa Etheridge) and 92 Oscar nominees. Nine of the 17 branches invited more women than men. The percentage of women in the Academy has risen from

Academy Invites Record 928 New Members

  • Variety
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has invited a record number of new members, extending invites to 928 people.

The Academy topped last year’s record of 774 new members. It invited 683 members in 2016 and 322 in 2015, which were also record numbers.

The expansion of Academy membership to more than 9,200 stems from an ongoing effort to diversify its ranks following uproar over the lack of African-American nominees in 2015 and 2016, which culminated in 2016’s #OscarsSoWhite controversy. Two weeks after the widely criticized nominations were announced, AMPAS announced a goal to double the number of women and diverse members of the Academy by 2020.

If all the 2018 invitees accept, the overall membership would be 9,226.

Monday’s invitations, if accepted, will result in 38% of the Oscars’ governing body’s new class being comprised of people of color, increasing their representation from 13% in 2017 to 16%.

Meanwhile, the new class is 49% female, boosting the total representation of women

TNT Moves Into Production in Spain With Comedy ‘Vote for Juan’

  • Variety
TNT has set political comedy “Vote For Juan” as its first original Spanish production, the pay-tv channel announced Tuesday. Javier Cámara is set to star in the 8-part, half-hour format, which is co-produced by TNT and Mediapro’s 100 Balas.

“Original content is one of our main areas of focus at TNT,” said Daniel González, director general of Turner for Spain and Portugal. “‘Vote For Juan’ forms part of a production plan and a larger international strategy that will be on-going over the next few years.”

As well as investing in big international productions González says TNT is also backing more localized content “which viewers can easily relate to,” citing the broadcaster’s original series out of Germany including most recently gangster drama “4 Blocks.” In January, Mediapro and Turner Latin America also announced a co-production deal to develop and produce cross-platform content.

‘Young Pope,’ ‘New Pope’ — ‘Woman Pope’? Why We Need a Female or Minority Pope to Succeed Jude Law

‘Young Pope,’ ‘New Pope’ — ‘Woman Pope’? Why We Need a Female or Minority Pope to Succeed Jude Law
Can “The New Pope” succeed without the charisma, talents and star power of Jude Law?

With Tuesday’s announcement that Paolo Sorrentino’s “The Young Pope” will no longer continue and that, instead, he’s working on “The New Pope” as his next limited series, doubts have started creeping up online. Jude Law’s performance as the conflicted Lenny Belardo, who became Pope Pius Xiii, was nothing short of masterful. Come Emmy nominations, if Law does not get the proper recognition, the Emmy voters will have to answer to a higher power.

Even before we saw his portrayal, Law’s big-screen name recognition was an instant draw for a series that many viewers were initially wary of. We cannot discount his natural charm and good looks, either. After all, that’s precisely what made Lenny different from the popes that preceded him, and he used this to his advantage, even

Smurfs & Gramps Take One Last Swing At Box Office -- The Weekend Warrior

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

Three New Movies May Have Trouble Making Much of a Mark

After a couple impressive March weekends with one new box office record, and a couple impressive openings, we’re now into April, and of the new movies, there just doesn’t seem like anything can defeat last week’s powerful duo of DreamWorks Animation’s The Boss Baby--which exceeded all predictions with $49 million, taking the top spot from Beauty and the Beast. Ghost in the Shell didn’t even do as well as I thought it may, opening with just $19 million, those late reviews helping to kill its weekend.

Sony Pictures Animation are giving the loveable blue Smurfs a third go at American audiences with The Smurfs: The Lost Village (Sony), after two previous movies,

Review: Truman, A Well-Trod but Satisfying Journey

Catalan filmmaker Cesc Gay seems to have cornered the market for Spanish dramedies that can reach both national and international markets. With a wry and discerning eye on the professional and artistic classes in his native country, he assembles a great cast and gives them Stories that connect with both laughter and tears. And his new film, Truman, follows this pattern: once the premise is established, the audience has a pretty good idea of where the journey is going. Even so, it's a journey that's worth taking. Tomás (Javier Cámara) returns to his home city of Madrid to spend a few last days with his childhood friend Julián (Ricardo Darín), who is dying of cancer. Originally planning to talk Julián into one last round of...
