Philip D’Antoni, ‘The French Connection’ Producer, Dies at 89
Philip D’Antoni, who produced Oscar-winning films like “The French Connection” and “Bullitt,” died at age 89 on April 15. The producer died at his home in New York.

D’Antoni was best known for the 1971 crime drama “The French Connection,” which won three Golden Globes and five Oscars, including best picture. Gene Hackman won for best actor and William Friedkin for best director and the film also won best adapted screenplay and best film editing. Also on the late producer’s resume is the Steve McQueen action flick “Bullitt,” which won an Oscar for film editing.

TV documentaries like “Elizabeth Taylor in London,” “Sophia Loren in Rome,” and the “Proud Land” miniseries made up much of D’Antoni’s early work in Hollywood in the early 1960s. “Bullitt” marked his first feature film producing credit in 1968, and from there he went on to produce “The French Connection” before returning to TV later in life.

My recent Blind Item is a blind no more. As confirmed by our sister site Deadline, a big question mark is now hanging over Lethal Weapon‘s seemingly slam-dunk Season 3 renewal due to the behavior of co-lead Clayne Crawford.

New Venom Trailer Is Dropping at CinemaCon This Week
The brand-new trailer for Venom will be released tonight at CinemaCon, according to Tom Hardy. The first bits of footage that were released for the movie earlier this year weren't received very well by fans.

The stakes are high for the new Venom trailer, and fans are hoping that we will get our first look at the symbiote and even further, fans are hoping that we get a Carnage tease this time around as well.

Orson Welles Is Coming to Cannes 2018 After All, but Not With Netflix

Orson Welles Is Coming to Cannes 2018 After All, but Not With Netflix
Despite Netflix removing all of its films from the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, Orson Welles will still be represented on the Croisette next month. The festival has announced the official lineup for this year’s Cannes Classics sidebar, and included on the list is the FilmStruck-produced documentary “The Eyes of Orson Welles,” from British documentarian Mark Cousin.

Netflix had originally been set to bring Welles’ unfinished film, “The Other Side of the Wind,” to the festival’s Out of Competition section, but the streaming giant announced it would not be attending the festival in any capacity after Cannes reinstated a rule preventing films without French theatrical distribution from competing for the Palme d’Or. The rule would not have affected “The Other Side of the Wind,” but Netflix wasn’t going to make an exception.

“The Eyes of Orson Welles” includes access to a lifetime of private drawings and paintings by Welles,

James Cameron is feeling the wrath of the internet after a comment he made to IndieWire criticizing the Marvel Cinematic Universe went viral. While promoting his upcoming AMC series “James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction,” the “Titanic” and “Avatar” director said that he hopes the industry starts getting tired of the “Avengers” storyline because “there are other stories to tell.”

“I’m hoping we’ll start getting ‘Avenger’ fatigue here pretty soon,” Cameron said. “Not that I don’t love the movies.

‘Dancing with the Stars: Athletes’ pro Alan Bersten underwent surgery to remove neck tumor weeks before cast reveal
Dancing with the Stars: Athletes” pro Alan Bersten is one of the favorites to win, with his partner Mirai Nagasu, but the dancer almost didn’t make this season. Just weeks before the cast announcement, Bersten underwent surgery to remove a tumor from his neck.

After experiencing stomach pains while on the “Dancing with the Stars: Live” tour last month, the 23-year-old was diagnosed with a rare and potentially fatal condition called hyperparathyroidism. He had a tumor on one of this parathyroid glands that disrupted the amount of calcium in his blood.

“Just the word tumor is so frightening,” he told “People.” “I didn’t know what malignant or benign meant until I looked it up and I was like, ‘Well hopefully it’s benign — God forbid I have cancer.’ That is more stress than I could ever imagine. I think the scariest part was not knowing.”

'The Rachel Divide': Film Review | Tribeca 2018

It's somewhat off the mark to characterize Rachel Dolezal as a divisive figure. Pretty much everyone lined up against her, when, in 2015, the president of the Spokane, Washington, chapter of the NAACP was exposed as a white woman passing as black. There were a few high-profile defenders (The Hollywood Reporter contributor Kareem Abdul-Jabbar among them), but mainly she was ridiculed and scorned, and a passionate and effective local civil rights leader became a national pariah and a late-night punchline.

To say that sales of her 2017 memoir were paltry would be the understatement of the century. All copies in...
