  • DailyDead
It’s hard to believe it’s almost time for a new year of the Sundance Film Festival, but we’re now less than two months away, and this writer is extremely excited to head to Park City once again, especially after digging into Sundance’s initial lineup announcement today. Not only does their Midnight slate look insanely great, but there are a ton of films running in Sundance’s other programming tracks that I am beyond excited to see in January.

Some of the highlights from today’s lineup announcement include Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile which chronicles the life of Ted Bundy (played by Zac Efron) through the experiences of his girlfriend; Paradise Hills, which stars Emma Roberts, Milla Jovovich, and Awkwafina; Relive from producer Jason Blum; Dan Gilroy’s Buzzsaw; and the Alien-themed documentary Memory. I’ve gone ahead and broken down all the titles

Bourne TV series Treadstone casts Jeremy Irvine and Brian J. Smith

Back in April, it was announced that USA Network is working on a TV spinoff of the Jason Bourne franchise entitled Treadstone, and now comes word that Brian J. Smith (Sense8) and Jeremy Irvine (War Horse) have been cast in the lead roles.

Treadstone “explores the origin story and present-day actions of a CIA black ops program known as Treadstone — a covert operation that uses behavior modification protocol to turn its agents into nearly unstoppable superhuman assassins.”

Deadline reports that Smith will play Doug McKenna, an all-American oil-rig worker whose life changes after he discovers long buried truths about himself; Irvine meanwhile is J. Randolph Bentley, a spy who is dispatched by the CIA to eliminate a key target but instead finds himself embroiled in an international conspiracy.

Meghan Markle's Half-Sister Travels to London, Only to Be Shunned

Meghan Markle's Half-Sister Travels to London, Only to Be Shunned
Samantha Markle is having a "fantastic" time in London, despite being a social pariah. The 53-year-old aspiring author visited Buckingham Palace yesterday in the hopes of possibly reconnecting with her estranged half-sister, Meghan Markle (who actually resides miles away at Kensington Palace with Prince Harry). Samantha appeared on Channel 5 Monday, where—without acknowledging the irony—Jeremy Irvine criticized her for talking about Meghan on TV. "I've always wanted to see London, but really I wanted to make the trip and sort of speak the wishes and thoughts and sentiments of my father, and hopefully get a message to my sister," Samantha said of her intentions.

Watch out for ‘Mammia Mia! Here We Go Again’ cast at Golden Globes

Watch out for ‘Mammia Mia! Here We Go Again’ cast at Golden Globes
“Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again” has the same feel-good factor that made the original such an infectious, joyous thrill back in 2008. Meryl Streep and company lit up our screens with the warm glow of the Greek sun and made us sing, dance, and laugh. That feel-good nature endeared “Mamma Mia” to the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. earning it a Best Comedy or Musical bid as well as one for Streep. Could the sequel equal that showing?

Four of the last five musicals to be nominated for Best Musical/Comedy Picture were also nominated at least once in the acting categories at the Golden Globes, too. “The Greatest Showman” earned Hugh Jackman a Best Actor bid, while “La La Land” won Best Actress and Best Actor for Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, respectively. While “Sing Street” didn’t garner any further nominations, both Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt were nominated for “Into the Woods.

‘Roe v. Wade’ Movie Gets Financing (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Bcl Finance Group, a fund headed by Adi Cohen, Michael Bassick and Michael Laundon, has signed a deal to complete the financing of political legal drama “Roe v. Wade.”

The film finished shooting in July. Bcl Finance made the announcement on Tuesday, with U.S. Senate beginning confirmation hearings on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh’s views on abortion are expected to be a major component of those hearings.

Bcl Finance said it anticipates a wide U.S. release in winter. The company said “Roe v. Wade” is the “untold” story of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that found that a right to privacy under the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment extended to a woman’s decision to have an abortion.

The film stars Jon Voight as Chief Justice Warren Burger, Robert Davi as Justice William Brennan, Stacey Dash as National Right to Life president Mildred Mildred Jefferson,

Kevin Spacey's First Movie After Sexual Assault Scandal Earns Just $126 On Opening Day

Kevin Spacey's First Movie After Sexual Assault Scandal Earns Just $126 On Opening Day
Disgraced actor Kevin Spacey faced a career-low performance at the box office this weekend.

The 59-year-old actor’s Billionaire Boys’ Club, his first on-screen appearance since multiple sexual misconduct allegations surfaced last fall, earned a mere $126 on its first day in theaters. Co-starring Ansel Elgort and Taron Egerton, the crime drama was quietly released on Friday across eight states in the country, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“If going by the average ticket price to date of $9.27, that means about six people showed up in each cinema on average,” the outlet asserted of the film’s $618 gross over 11 theaters this weekend.

Kevin Spacey’s New Movie Only Made $126 On Opening Day

When Kevin Spacey became embroiled in one of the biggest scandals of the #MeToo movement last year, with the actor facing numerous sexual harassment charges, many wondered if the career of the Hollywood icon was over. This certainly seemed to be the case when Ridley Scott reshot All the Money in the World at great expense to remove Spacey and replace him with Christopher Plummer.

It was surprising, then, when Billionaire Boys Club was released with Spacey’s role in tact. Vertical Entertainment had previously stated that they hoped that the strong work of the ensemble cast – starring young talent such as Taron Egerton, Ansel Engort, Emma Roberts and Jeremy Irvine – would be enough to ensure Spacey’s part in the crime drama based on a true story would not affect it too much.

Well, it seems their prediction was wrong. In an all-time low for the actor’s career,

Kevin Spacey’s new film Billionaire Boys Club opens to less than $500 at the weekend box office

In his first feature since allegations of sexual misconduct last year which saw him fired from House of Cards and removed from Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World, Kevin Spacey’s latest film Billionaire Boys Club has suffered a disastrous opening weekend, earning less than $500 at the domestic box office.

The film – which sees Spacey in a supporting role alongside the likes of Ansel Elgort, Taron Egerton, Jeremy Irvine, Emma Roberts, Cary Elwes, Billie Lourd, Suki Waterhouse, Bokeem Woodbine, Rosanna Arquette and Judd Nelson – has been available on VOD for a month, and opened on a handful of screens across the United States, earning just $126 on Friday and $162 on Sunday. Unsurprisingly, the film also had next to no marketing behind it.

Distributor Vertical Entertainment had previously said that it would release the film despite the involvement of Spacey, releasing a statement which read:
