Channing Tatum Reportedly Interested In Directing The Long-Delayed ‘Gambit’ Film
We are fast approaching the five-year anniversary of the first time we reported that Channing Tatum is in line to play the “X-Men” character Gambit in a solo film. Since then, the film project has gone through constant changes, gaining directors, losing directors, getting a scheduled release date, and then, of course, losing that release date. But through thick and thin, one thing has remained the same – Tatum.

Edgar Wright Says ‘Baby Driver 2’ First Draft ‘Exists’

Edgar Wright Says ‘Baby Driver 2’ First Draft ‘Exists’
Edgar Wright isn’t putting “Baby” in a corner just yet. The British director teased that some progress has been made on a potential sequel to “Baby Driver,” Wright’s 2017 film starring Ansel Elgort that married action, comedy, musicals and heists.

“A first draft of ‘Baby Driver 2 exists,” he told Empire in a interview. Wright added that the film will introduce new characters following the deaths of many of the characters in the original and it “takes the story further.”

In a previous interview with Empire back in July 2017, Wright said he was urged to write a sequel to his film and felt there was potential by recognizing that by the end of the movie, “Baby has got to a new place.”

“Most sequels you have to contrive something so they go back to square one,

‘Who Will Write Our History’ Opens Strong as Oscar Contenders Await Nominations

‘Who Will Write Our History’ Opens Strong as Oscar Contenders Await Nominations
Abramorama release “Who Will Write Our History,” a detailed account of the Warsaw Ghetto during Nazi occupation, showed intense interest in its initial exclusive Manhattan date ahead of special event screenings next weekend. It’s a small release to celebrate; in the pre-Oscar nominations limbo, any signs of life are welcome in the specialized world.

The leading contenders for Oscar nominations grossed about $6 million total this weekend. That compares to about $16 million the weekend prior to the announcement last year. That’s a big drop — but it could also reflect that we’re in a rare Oscar year dominated by major studio films.

Opening

Who Will Write Our History? (Abramorama) – Metacritic: 80; Festivals include: Rome 2018

$12,719 in 1 theater; PTA (per theater average): $12,719

Strong reviews helped propel this documentary centering on massive archives recovered from the Warsaw Ghetto. It played sold-out shows at a 100-seat screen in New York’s Quad Cinema.

‘Holmes & Watson’ and ‘Gotti’ Lead 2019 Razzie Nominations for Worst Picture
If their dismal reviews wasn’t punishment enough, for the 39th year, the Razzie Awards seek to recognize the achievements of the worst movies of the year. And for 2019’s crop of nominees, John Travolta’s “Gotti” and Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly’s “Holmes & Watson” both received the “honor” of being nominated for Worst Picture of 2018.

Melissa McCarthy might be nominated for an Oscar on Tuesday morning, but on Monday morning, she scored a nomination for Worst Actress for both “The Happytime Murders” and “Life of the Party,” and the former also landed among the five Worst Picture nominees. The box office bomb “Robin Hood” and Helen Mirren’s “Winchester” rounded out the nominees.

Even the first family found a way into the nominees, with Donald Trump and Melania Trump both getting nominated for portraying themselves in the documentary “Fahrenheit 11/9” from Michael Moore. And unlike the Oscars,

(Welcome to Seeing Double, a series where two strangely similar films released around the same time are put head-to-head. This time, we take a timely look at two movies that turn volcanic activity into action/adventure romps for the big screen.) Volcanic eruptions don’t typically get the kind of attention in the Us that hurricanes, tornadoes, and sinkholes do as they’re understandably infrequent […]

Edgar Wright Reveals His Next Project, a Psychological Horror Film Inspired by ‘Don’t Look Now’

Edgar Wright Reveals His Next Project, a Psychological Horror Film Inspired by ‘Don’t Look Now’
A year and a half after “Baby Driver” raced into theaters, Edgar Wright has shared a few salient details about his next project. The “Shaun of the Dead,” “Hot Fuzz,” and “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” director tells Empire that he’s working on a psychological horror film set in London that will star a female lead. As inspirations for the film, he cites two classics: Roman Polanski’s “Repulsion” and Nicolas Roeg’s “Don’t Look Now.”

“I realised I had never made a film about central London — specifically Soho, somewhere I’ve spent a huge amount of time in the last 25 years,” Wright tells the magazine. “With ‘Hot Fuzz’ and ‘Shaun of the Dead’ you make movies about places you’ve lived in. This movie is about the London I’ve existed in.”

It isn’t his only project in the works, as Wright confirms that “a first

Leslie Jones Calls Jason Reitman’s ‘Ghostbusters’ Sequel ‘Something Trump Would Do’
Nearly three years after the female-led “Ghostbusters” reimagining arrived in theaters, the supernatural comedy franchise remains controversial. Suffice to say that Leslie Jones, who starred in the most recent iteration of the series and dealt with much of the sexist backlash directed toward it, is none too pleased with the news that “Juno” and “Up in the Air” director Jason Reitman is set to write and direct a new sequel. On Twitter, the “Saturday Night Live” actress called the new film not only “insulting” but also “something Trump would do.”

“So insulting. Like fuck us. We dint count. It’s like something trump would do,” she wrote. ‘(Trump voice)”Gonna redo ghostbusteeeeers, better with men, will be huge. Those women ain’t ghostbusteeeeers’ ugh so annoying. Such a dick move. And I don’t give fuck I’m saying something!!”
