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,

‘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,

The Biggest 2019 Oscars Snubs and Surprises

Look, we’re the first to admit that the entire concept of an “Oscar snub” is a little bit silly. It’s not like everyone in the Academy gets together and secretly plots to teach a filmmaker or actor a lesson by refusing to nominate them for a golden statuette. That’s simply not how it works on […]

Pawel Pawlikowski’s ‘Cold War’ Makes History for Poland

Pawel Pawlikowski’s ‘Cold War’ Makes History for Poland
Alfonso Cuaron might’ve tied an Oscar record with four nods to his name for “Roma,” which scored 10 nominations overall. But another black-and-white film in a foreign language, Pawel Pawlikowski’s jazz-infused romantic drama “Cold War,” was honored with three Academy Award nominations Tuesday, the most in history for a primarily Polish-backed production.

The film will compete in the best foreign-language film and cinematography categories, while Pawlikowski earned a somewhat unexpected nomination for best director.

In a remarkable coincidence – beyond being foreign-language pics shot in black and white – both “Cold War” and “Roma” are drawn from the lives of the directors’ own families. “Cold War” is loosely based on the story of Pawlikowski’s late parents, musicians who met in post-war Poland and embarked on a tempestuous marriage.

“They’d be over the moon” with the film’s Oscar nominations, Pawlikowski told Variety in an e-mail, adding: “There’s always

U.K. Cinema Attendance in 2018 Was Highest Since 1970

Cinema attendance in the U.K. topped 177 million in 2018, the highest number since 1970. Box office held firm at £1.3 billion ($1.7 billion) through the year as 10 movies crossed the £30 million threshold in the year. That compares with six films in 2017.

After a sweltering summer in the U.K. and a strong performance by England’s team at the soccer World Cup, the figures are impressive amid a mixed picture elsewhere in Europe.

Industry experts said a diverse slate of big-budget films piqued audience interest, and investment in infrastructure – more than a dozen new theaters opened in 2018 and many others were refurbished – propelled Britain to a banner movie-going year.

The admissions number had been tipped to hit a decades-long high, but was still welcomed by the industry. It was up almost 4% year-on-year.

“These fantastic figures for 2018 confirm that the U.K. cinema sector remains in extraordinary health,” said Phil Clapp of the U.

From Spike Lee to Alfonso Cuarón: Why #OscarsSoWhite May Take a Break in 2019

Oscar viewership sank to record lows last year, but diversity among its 2019 nominees could provide the Academy Awards celebration with a much-needed ratings jolt. Inclusion sells: A 2015 Nielsen report found that the more diverse the major-category nominees, the larger the audience.

In the past, there was less the Academy could do to influence that income; it’s hard to vote on movies that haven’t been made. This year, however, there are indications that the Hollywood pipeline has responded to the demands of April Reign’s 2015 hashtag #OscarsSoWhite. (It may not be coincidental that four years is also a rough estimate of the time required for a film to move from inception to awards consideration.)

At the risk of damning with faint praise, this year’s nominees may represent the most diverse in Academy history — enough for the hashtag to take a well-deserved vacation. The nominees include two directors of

Oscar nominations 2019: Roma and The Favourite deserve acclaim, but no female directors is woeful

The Academy consensus has produced two blue-chip frontrunners, but passed over some exceptional films directed by women in the process

•Roma and The Favourite vie for glory

•Full list of nominations

•Guardian film Black Sheep nominated

Once again, the mysterious consensus-accretion of awards season has done its work and the Oscar nomination list has a big showing for Alfonso Cuarón’s magnificent Roma, with 10 nominations — and, notably, just as big a score for critics’ darling and perennial talking point Yorgos Lanthimos’s bizarre Restoration comedy The Favourite. This also has 10 nominations, including of course a best actress nomination for Olivia Colman, who this year has become (justly) catapulted to international treasure status. These are the prestige products, the blue-chip movies that the Academy hivemind has decided are the headline successes.
