Legendary acquired the feature film rights in December and have quickly made the project a high priority at the studio. Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz of Troma Entertainment will serve as producers with Alex Garcia and Jay Ashenfelter overseeing for Legendary.
Kaufman and Herz produced the original 1984 comedy, set in the fictional town of Tromaville, N.J., and centered on a mild-mannered janitor at a health club who’s chased out a second story window by bullies and lands in a drum of toxic waste.

Thoughts of wander-lust seen comically out of place. Amaré has just been seen in the prolog to “Eden” leaping out of a dinghy beaching on a Greek beach, to the dumfounded puzzlement of its tourists.
He and the other immigrants in “Eden” are never, moreover, in a position to escape constraints: The wait for residence permits, menial jobs even for the highly-qualified; the pressure to make the academic grade in a new country; above all,
Based on the series of novels by Pekka Hiltunen, the drama is billed as the biggest yet out of Finland and will bow on the Viaplay streaming service in Scandinavia. With a cast from all over Europe and a shoot spanning Belgium, Finland, Ireland, and the U.K., “Cold Courage” is international in scope and ambition.

The local government-backed festival opens April 13 and runs through April 20.
The list of films nominated in the festival’s competition section and jury members has not yet been released. Winners of the Tiantan (“Temple of Heaven”) Award will be announced at the closing ceremony.
Since this year is the 70th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China, the theme of both the opening and closing ceremonies will be “home and country,” the festival said on its website, so as to make the event “a birthday blessing for the motherland.”

Sandy K. Boone’s documentary is likely to be lost on the not-previously converted, as what seemed the height of snark in the Reagan Era hasn’t dated all that well — nor is its appeal apparent as excerpted and recalled here. But those who remember the gospel of “slack” will make this diverting-enough documentary an in-demand work at genre festivals, as a streaming item and in other forums.
But there are times you need an instigator to stir up a hornets’ nest, and one of

Gaye recorded “Symphony” during the sessions for Let’s Get It On and it later appeared on his posthumous 1985 album, Dream of a Lifetime. For his remix, Remi boosted the orchestral elements of the original and anchored them with a dusty drum shuffle, all in the service of highlighting Gaye’s vocals as he sings,
“She destroyed the show and my life with that tweet,” Barr told the Post. “She will never get enough until she consumes my liver with a fine Chianti.”
Barr was referring to remarks Gilbert made on May 29 in response to a series of early-morning tweets in which Barr insulted Valerie Jarrett and repeated slurs about Democratic donor George Soros. Roseanne ultimately deleted the tweets and apologized for them.
Gilbert later said on Twitter that the remarks were “abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show.”

The minimalist new visual finds the rapper, alongside a silent friend as the two groove together, inside a barebones room while red lights pulsate on and off to the beat, which enhances the foreboding vibe that’s reminiscent of the song’s horror film namesake.

Some weeks, Better Things likes to turn the spotlight onto the supporting characters, or at least to acknowledge that Sam Fox isn’t a wholly perfect heroine. Some weeks, though, we get a tale like “Monsters in the Moonlight,” about how many indignities Sam has to endure from everyone else in Sam’s life.

Ata’s counterprosal, posted to its official site Thursday, doesn’t differ much from the informal counterproposal made public on March 12. Talent Agencies aren’t backing down on their commitment to package deals.
