‘Billionaire Boys Club’ Film Review: Kevin Spacey Stuck in Convoluted True-Crime Remake

‘Billionaire Boys Club’ Film Review: Kevin Spacey Stuck in Convoluted True-Crime Remake
Across his sporadic and meager filmography, director James Cox has showcased an affinity for the quintessential bad boy in stories laced with toxic testosterone, heavy drug use and gruesome violence. Cox seems to revel in tales about young white men whose reckless ambition pushes them to commit unthinkable crimes and betray their buddies. Even if the results are catastrophic, he somehow portrays their acts not as malicious and reprehensible, but as commendable endeavors gone wrong.

This questionable bro-bravado in ingrained in 2002’s “Highway” (starring baby-faced Jared Leto and Jake Gyllenhaal), his 2003 John Holmes crime drama “Wonderland,” with Val Kilmer as the lead, and the more recent “Straight A’s,” with Ryan Phillippe and Anna Paquin. For his latest, “Billionaire Boys Club,” Cox enlists rising stars like Ansel Elgort, Emma Roberts and Taron Egerton as well as a veteran (Kevin Spacey) who up until recently could have served as a prestigious hook for the enterprise.

Drake-Backed Green Tea Startup Lures More Musicians to Wellness Trend

Drake-Backed Green Tea Startup Lures More Musicians to Wellness Trend
Rock & roll had cigarettes and beer; the most influential rappers of the 2000s favored tequila and vodka. But as a health and wellness movement sweeps the millennial set, today’s musicians are striking deals and partnerships in the fitness industry – a space once considered the pinnacle of uncool.

One company rising up in that realm right now, for instance, is MatchaBar, a Brooklyn-based green tea startup in which Drake invested last year. On Tuesday, MatchaBar announced that it has completed a $8 million Series A round with the help of additional celebrity investors like producer Diplo,

Leonardo DiCaprio Plays Beach Volleyball With Ansel Elgort

Leonardo DiCaprio Plays Beach Volleyball With Ansel Elgort
Leonardo DiCaprio is a beast on the beach volleyball court ... and so is Ansel Elgort, judging by the game they had Sunday in Malibu. The two actors squared off in an intense match at the beach ... intense enough that Ansel not only played shirtless, but had to cool off afterward in the water.  No word what brought 'em together -- Ansel's nearly 20 years younger than Leo, so they're not exactly peers, and they're not costarring in anything at the moment.

Three More Sexual Assault Allegations Have Emerged Against Kevin Spacey

Kevin Spacey is the subject of three new allegations of sexual assault that are currently being looked into by the UK Metropolitan Police, adding to the three previous claims that are already being investigated in London.

TMZ have reported that the new accusations come from three men, and that they regard separate cases of sexual assault in the UK capital. According to the claims, these incidents occurred in Westminster in 1996, in Lambeth in 2008, and in Gloucester in 2013.

The London borough of Lambeth is home of the Old Vic Theater, where Spacey served as artistic director from 2004 to 2015. The theater issued a statement last November reporting that they had received 20 personal testimonies of inappropriate behavior by the actor.

In that same month, Scotland Yard’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command opened investigations into claims that Spacey sexually assaulted men in 2005 and 2008, the former case also allegedly taking place in Lambeth.

A New Kevin Spacey Movie Is Coming This Summer: Why?

A New Kevin Spacey Movie Is Coming This Summer: Why?
Kevin Spacey will be making a return to the big screen this August for the first time since the actor was hit with a slew of sexual misconduct allegations. Billionaire Boys Club, which was filmed more than two years ago, is being released by Los Angeles based distributor Vertical, who have decided to bring the movie to theaters later this summer.

"We hope these distressing allegations pertaining to one person's behavior, that were not publicly known when the film was made almost two-and-a-half years ago and from someone who has a small, supporting role in Billionaire Boys Club, does not tarnish the release of the film.
