Geoffrey Rush and the woman at the centre of a defamation trial between the actor and Sydney newspaper the Daily Telegraph exchanged familiar and “affectionate” emails with one another after the alleged inappropriate behaviour at the centre of a defamation trial had occurred.
On the opening day of Rush’s two-week defamation trial against the Daily Telegraph on Monday, his barrister, Bruce McClintock Sc, told the court the actor denied all the allegations made against him, and accused the newspaper of deliberately seeking to “smash and destroy” Rush’s reputation.
Man Is The True Monster
Last week, we saw that Maggie was capable of handling the burdens of leadership; while she may have had a knee-jerk reaction in jailing Earl and denying Sanctuary food, she ultimately did the right thing in freeing Earl and sharing Hilltop’s stores. But her deeply-held anger for the Saviors in general and Negan in particular have not gone away, as the chilling climax of “Warning Signs” makes clear.
The mystery of the missing Saviors is definitively answered this episode, as it’s revealed that Cyndie and the other Oceansiders are the culprits. Their targets haven’t been random — they’ve been disappearing the survivors of Simon’s crew, the ones who executed the men of Oceanside. It’s nice that the revelation isn’t drawn out (most TV shows these days could use more brevity in their
The cumulative total of the top ten films amounted to just $41.2 million, according to data from Ent Group. That is the second lowest weekend this year.
The slump has followed new regulations that limit distributors’ ability to buy their own tickets and give the appearance of success, and a cap on the fees that online ticketing companies can charge. Both measures may have the effect of removing distortions and reveal data that presents a truer picture of theatrical demand.
The latest six-week slump may also reflect problems on the supply side. A growing number of commentators have identified a flow of weak films that have little novelty or particular appear. Box office got a temporary boost at the Mid-Autumn Festival, but the score was more
It’ll be some time before we see anything official from “Little Women,” but Chalamet has taken it upon himself to share a blurry Instagram photo of his co-star and director rehearsing a few weeks ago; accompanied by the caption “littlewomen,” it shows Ronan hugging Gerwig from behind. Not pictured: the rest of the stacked ensemble cast, which is led by Meryl Streep, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, James Norton, Laura Dern, Emma Watson (who replaced Emma Stone), Louis Garrel, Bob Odenkirk, Chris Cooper, and Abby Quinn.
Tricia Tuttle has been been appointed director, BFI Festivals, it was announced at the closing night of the BFI London Film Festival (Lff) on Sunday October 21. She takes over from Clare Stewart who is not returning to the role when her year’s sabbatical ends in December 2018.
Tuttle has led the Lff as interim artistic director this year after five years as deputy head of festivals at the BFI. Her new role will encompass Flare, London’s Lgbtq+ Film Festival.
”I congratulate Tricia Tuttle on her new role,
During a panel on the final day of Mia hosted by Women in Film, TV & Media Italia, the group presented the tools of ReFrame, the American organization promoting a formal action plan to achieve gender parity in film and TV, and debated how they could be used to address systemic challenges facing women in Italian media.
“The ecosystem is…breathing with one single lung,” said Domizia De Rosa, of Women in Film, TV & Media Italia. “[Women are] the half which is missing.”
De Rosa was joined onstage by Kirsten Schaffer (above right), executive director of Women in Film, L.A.; producer Paul Feig (above left); Desiree Akhavan, director of Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner “The Miseducation of Cameron Post”; Mia director Lucia Milazzotto; Stefania Ippoliti, president
“First time voters have the power to make a massive impact in the upcoming midterm elections, but 18-20 year olds are part of a demographic that has historically failed to participate in National Elections.

Another surprise potential to have emerged in the last few months is “Stan & Ollie,” a biopic of comedy legends Laurel & Hardy from Oscar-nominated “Philomena” writer Jeff Pope, and “Filth” director Jon S.

Meanwhile, “A Star Is Born” became the second release this month to reach $200 million — a first for October. Only four films total have done this — “Meet the Parents,” “Gravity,” “Shark Tale,” and “The Martian” (at 2018 prices).
That puts October 2018 in the hunt for the best ever. The only thing holding it back is the bulk of the revenue comes from these three hits; beyond them, there isn’t a lot that’s doing strong business.
The 11th entry has the biggest start of any film in the four-decade “Halloween” franchise, and already has topped the grosses of all but three (adjusted). It will easily be the biggest other than John Carpenter’s 1978 original.
Director Jon S. Baird’s bittersweet little movie follows the pair through a farewell tour across the U.K. and Ireland, where they engage in a series of lively stage shows that rekindles their talent. The ensuing showbiz dramedy follows a genial trajectory, falling short of injecting much ingenuity into the story beyond the uncanny ability to resurrect Laurel and Hardy onscreen. Yet for much of its running time, that’s sufficient.
That the story of two stars once among the surest commercial bets in
This sweet, sad film is about a little-known final chapter in the lives of comedy legends Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. In 1952, at a low point professionally, out of fashion in the United States, their relationship under stress and needing money, they took on a British tour, sometimes to painfully sparse audiences. Recently we had Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, about Gloria Grahame’s theatrical engagements in Britain. Well, here were film stars dying night after night in Newcastle, Glasgow and Worthing. Jon S Baird’s feature appears fictionally to conflate the tour with the wintry mood of later UK tours when Stan and Ollie’s health and career worries had escalated further. It has a persuasive feel for this twilight of the comedy gods.
An alumnus of the Film Studies Center of Catalonia, Spain, Alejandra Marquez Abella made an assured debut on the world stage with her 2015 first feature, “Semana Santa,” selected for Toronto. Her subtle, affecting story of a young eight-year old boy, his mother and her new boyfriend on a less than idyllic holiday went on to snag prizes at the film festivals of Fribourg, Switzerland and Los Cabos, Mexico.

Tuttle’s new permanent role is director, BFI festivals. Stewart had said at the end of 2017 that she planned to take a year out. Her next move, now she is not returning to Lff and the BFI, is not clear.
Speaking at the closing night gala screening, BFI chief Amanda Nevill announced that Stewart has decided not to return and Tuttle will fill her shoes. She paid tribute to the outgoing BFI festivals director. “She is an absolute force of nature and we are going to miss her very much indeed,” she said.
