The impact he made on television and cinema will be felt forever, and our deepest condolences go out to his family, friends and fans.”
Cohen began his career in the 1960s in television, writing scripts for episodes of well-known TV series including “The Defenders,” “Espionage,” and “The Invaders.”
In the ’70s, Cohen began to focus on filmmaking, penning and directing the

Axel Danielson and Maximilien Van Aertryck, directors of the short film hit Ten Meter Tower, are unveiling plans for their first joint feature film, Broadcast, at Cph:dox’s Forum this week.
Danielson and Van Aertryck, who are collaborators at Ruben Ostlund and Erik Hemmendorff’s Plattform Produktion in Sweden, will look at the camera’s power and influence on human behaviour.
Broadcast will be a unique documentary project using lots of raw archive footage yet aiming to be “a completely cinematic experience.
With little in the way of strong, new competition, “blue” scored $27 million, according to data from consultancy Artisan Gateway. That lifted it to a total of $121 million after 10 days in Chinese cinemas. The score was also enough to make it the third highest grossing film in the world over the weekend, behind “Captain Marvel,” and “Us.”
Er Dong’s “Song of Youth” placed second with receipts of $12.6 million in its opening three days.
“Captain Marvel” held on for third place with $7.2 million over the weekend, and a cumulative gross of $147 million since its release on March 8.
“Bohemian Rhapsody,” which surprised many observers when it secured a release in China,
This year’s documentary Oscar race, like pretty much everything else about the Oscars this year, showed a medium in transition between comfortable and more radical forms, and an industry split on where to side. The crowd-pleasers won out. Free Solo, a dazzling National Geographic spectacle, took the prize, with staid bio-doc Rbg presumed to be close behind, while more experimental critical darlings Hale County This Morning, This Evening and the remarkable, forthcoming Minding the Gap were just happy to be nominated. It’s a start; perhaps in a few years the balance will shift.
“I had an amazing experience yesterday. I sat at Patrick’s kitchen table and I heard him read the first episode, and I almost cried,” he said. “It was quite something. He’s at an amazing place in his life. He’s so excited.”
Stewart, 78, helmed the USS Enterprise as Picard for seven seasons of “The Next Generation” and four movies. Despite assimilation by the Borg and other unsavory and challenging encounters with aliens and humans alike, Picard had been a steadfast and moral figure, driven by duty but often alone as he is the last of the Picards.
This Week On “The Walking Dead”
“The Calm Before” is complicated. On the one hand, it’s an effective piece of horror, skillfully playing out the dread of what, exactly, Alpha is going to do as reprisal for her stolen daughter, culminating in a truly memorable and ghastly image. The performances are strong, many characters are reunited, and it’s a vastly superior hour (plus) than the last big shocker episode, “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be.” But as another chapter in the ongoing narrative, it just makes me want to throw up my hands. Here, again, is another pile of agonizing misery for our heroes. Here, again, the audience is strung through the emotional wringer so a new Big Bad can prove how super dangerous they are. It’s an exhausting and exasperating hour of television. Between this episode and “Scars” last week,
[Spoiler alert: While the following article doesn’t get deep into plot points, discussing music choices does involve revealing a couple of the movie’s best jokes, so if you’re especially averse to humor spoilers, wait until you’ve seen “Us” to read further .]
“Us” makes prominent use of the mid-‘90s hip-hop hit “I Got 5 On It” — as heard in the trailer — in both song form and an eerie instrumental score reprise, as well as key cuts from the present and distant past by Janelle Monae and Minnie Riperton. But the choices that are going to

Its $70 million total contributed to the third straight weekend that grossed ahead of the same one in 2018. That continues a turnaround; now the year-over-year slump is a bit over 17 percent, down from 25 percent a few weeks ago. Still, it leaves the raw number of ticket revenue down $450 million from last year, with this weekend cutting $10 million from the shortfall. That shows the challenge of getting anywhere close to parity. “Dumbo” next week and initial strong response to “Shazam!” two weeks after that suggest that number will be pared further ahead. However, we likely enter summer a quarter billion or more behind.
Riding high on frenzied buzz and comparisons – by some observers in the Us at least – to Alfred Hitchcock, Jordan Peele confirmed that he is the genuine article as Us, his follow-up to global hit Get Out, delivered the highest debut of all time for an original horror film in North America on an estimated $70.3m.
Furthermore the story of a family hunted by their doppelgangers produced the third highest horror film opening weekend in North America, behind It on $123.4m and last year’s Halloween reboot on $76.2m.

What “Action” also manages to capture is the idea that putting all sports gamblers into the same simplistic category is as misguided and counterproductive as claiming that heroin addicts and recreational vapers should be filed in the same overall camp too. Though not as immediate as something like “The Trade” and not quite as formally showy as other overviews of massive money schemes, “Action” still gives

It is expanding quickly, with a limited initial run in contrast to Bleecker Street’s kidnapping thriller “Beirut” last year,

On the news front, Murphy revealed the setting of Season 2 as well as some new cast members. “Season 2 is very exciting,” Murphy said. “It starts in 1990 — the day Madonna releases ‘Vogue,’ and along with our wonderful [returning] cast, we have wonderful additions. Sandra Bernhard is a series regular.”
“Pose” Season 1 took place in 1987 and 1988. Dominique Jackson summed up the cast’s position — who were surprised by every announcement of the night — when she said, “I have no idea what’s going on, but for Season 2 I honestly trust in the writing and realize that sometimes we have to let go.”
