Oscars: Olivia Colman Will Compete in Best Actress for ‘The Favourite’ as Acting Races Get Clarified
When it comes to predicting the Oscars, one of the major hurdles early in the season is figuring out in which categories some of the actors will be competing. Someone like Christoph Waltz in Django Unchained is more of a co-lead performance, but it’s on the studio to decide where to campaign for the actor, and on the Academy to either accept or re-categorize. In the case of Waltz and Django, he was submitted for Best Supporting Actor …

‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ Featurette Dives into the Sequel’s Plot

Warner Bros. has released a new featurette for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald that goes deeper into the film’s plot. While we previously knew that the conflict would revolve around Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) escaping and Dumbledore (Jude Law) recruiting Newt (Eddie Redmayne) to take down the dark wizard. However, this featurette reveals that part of Grindelwald’s plan involves Credence (Ezra Miller), who displayed incredible power in the first Fantastic Beasts movie. Watching the featurette, I’ve become pretty steadfast in my belief that this is a make-or-break entry for the franchise. Even though it will …

Richard Linklater’s New Ad Questions Ted Cruz’s Love of Texas Because of His Odd Fast Food Choices — Watch

Richard Linklater’s New Ad Questions Ted Cruz’s Love of Texas Because of His Odd Fast Food Choices — Watch
Richard Linklater isn’t letting Ted Cruz off the hook. On the heels of an October 8 advertisement in which Linklater questioned whether or not Cruz was “tough as Texas,” as his political slogan claims, the director has released a second anti-Cruz political ad on behalf of the Fire Ted Cruz Pac that asks whether or not Cruz truly loves Texas or not. Texas senator Cruz is seeking re-election this November against Democrat Beto O’Rourke.

Cruz dissed O’Rourke earlier this year by referring to the democrat as a “Triple Meat Whataburger liberal who is out of touch with Texas values.” O’Rourke responded by taking a video of himself ordering food at a Texas Whataburger following a September debate against Cruz. Linklater’s new ad, once again starring his “Bernie” actor Sonny Carl Davis, plays directly into the feud.

“Everybody I know in Texas likes Whataburger,” Sonny says in the ad.

‘Apostle’: Gareth Evans Left ‘The Raid’ Behind to Imagine a Sinister Cult, Inspired by British Folk Horror and Caravaggio

‘Apostle’: Gareth Evans Left ‘The Raid’ Behind to Imagine a Sinister Cult, Inspired by British Folk Horror and Caravaggio
Welsh director Gareth Evans burst onto the scene in 2011 with his searing action film, “The Raid,” which showcases the traditional Indonesian martial art Pencak Silat. The film was a huge hit, leading to a 2014 sequel, “The Raid 2,” and both films cemented Evans’ place in action film history. But with his latest feature film, “Apostle,” Evans left martial arts behind for horror: in 1905, Thomas Richardson (Dan Stevens) travels to a remote island in search of his missing sister, who has been kidnapped by a strange cult.

Apostle” isn’t the first time Evans dabbled in the horror genre, nor is it his first take on a cult. In 2013’s “V/H/S 2,” Evans co-directed “Save Haven” with Timo Tjahjanto, which follows a documentary crew who attempt to infiltrate an Indonesian cult, and discover unimaginable horrors in the process. But while “Safe Haven” was a hit with horror fans, Evans knew
