“We’re thrilled audiences around the world have embraced ‘Aquaman’ in such a big, big way,” said Sanders. “Jason, the filmmakers and the team at DC have delivered a film that people love, and we are so appreciative of their support.”
Wan stated, “Firstly, Massive Love and Thank You to the
Cooper co-wrote this version of the oft-remade “A Star is Born” with Eric Roth and Will Fetters. They’re nominated for Critics’ Choice, Writers Guild and BAFTA Awards for their script, and they currently rank third in our Oscar forecasts with 9/2 odds. One of the Expert journalists we’ve polled, Gold Derby’s own Jack Mathews, is even forecasting their victory. But the current front-runner for Best
“That’s one of the things that really grabs me is starting with history and extrapolating events from that history,” Zemeckis said. “It makes things interesting to me when it’s all melted together. And that is why I fell in love with the pitch for Project: Blue Book from the very start.”
That pitch led Zemeckis to his executive producer role for the new UFO-themed drama Project: Blue Book, which premieres tonight on History with a story device that puts the shadowy series in the middle-ground that lies somewhere between In Search Of

Twentieth Century Fox’s historical comedy The Favourite is set for its first weekend in cinemas, having already set a new UK record for director Yorgos Lanthimos in taking £1.8m since its launch on New Year’s Day (Tuesday Jan 1).
Its early cume, which includes £336,655 from four days of previews prior to Tuesday, outranks Lanthimos’ previous highest amount for 2015’s The Lobster. That film opened to £229,946 and finished on £1.5m, and went on to secure a best original screenplay nomination at the 2017 Oscars.
The Favourite was also the number two title
Directed by Robert Zemeckis.

A victim of a brutal attack finds a unique and beautiful therapeutic outlet to help him through his recovery process.
Welcome to Marwen isn’t merely content to be the worst film of director Robert Zemeckis’ career, it’s also one of the most bafflingly ill-advised projects from any respected auteur in recent times. And remember, Shane Black released The Predator just a few months ago.
Inspired by the hit 2010 documentary Marwencol, Zemeckis’ film takes a CliffsNotes approach to the life and times of Mark Hogancamp (Carell), a man who was near-beaten to death by five men after drunkenly telling them he was a cross-dresser. With brain damage eroding most of his pre-attack memories, Mark copes with the trauma by
This video from Vulture points out six movies that have hidden CGI effects. For some reason they decided to include Henry Cavill’s CGI mustache removal in Justice League which was not hidden at all! That shitty effects work stuck out like a sore thumb.
Some of the other movies that it talks about are David Fincher’s Gone Girl, Les Miserables, Brokeback Mountain, Iron Man 3, and Forrest Gump, which also had a lot of CGI effects that you notice. Personally, I think this video should have and could have included much better examples of hidden special effects. But, maybe you
During an interview with Yahoo Movies, the Back to the Future and Forrest Gump director was asked whether the impending 30th anniversary of the ground-breaking film might prompt Disney to dust off plans for a long overdue sequel. He responded with the following, rather depressing answer:
“I don’t think so. I don’t know where it fits in in their universe. There’s no princess in it, so I don’t know where that would be. There’s a wonderful script sitting at Disney that is really good, but I don’t think it’s on their radar.”

So there you have it. Any hopes for the
The two cast members touch on what it was like to work with Zemeckis, and all three share their thoughts on working on a film that celebrates our quirks and differences, and doesn’t judge. Carell also talks about the joy in acting and understanding the world around him, while they all tell us about their own personal collections of toys they’ve never quite been able to throw away. Naturally, Zemeckis has quite the collection. The director finishes by talking about
According to a new report, several insiders at rival studios expect that Welcome to Marwen will lose around $50 million. The movie, which is based on the documentary Marwencol and centers on Mark Hogancamp, a man faced a brutal assault and aided his own recovery by creating a miniature WWII-era village filled with action figures, opened on nearly 2,000 screens. The $2.4 million opening ties it for the worst opening for a wide-release in 2018, alongside Johnny Knoxville's Action Point. However, that movie only had a $19 million budget and a smaller marketing push.

When this achingly irreverent ode to misfits was over, I thought, how wonderful that Zero is dedicated to Sridevi. No more befitting homage could be paid to an entertainer who brought us smiles all through her career.
Bauua Singh of Meerut is like that only. He is a dwarf, and let’s not soften the blow by beating around the bush about his shortcoming. The brilliantly askew screenplay by Himanshu Sharma certainly doesn’t shy away from addressing disabilities. This is a film that calls a spade a spade and then shovels us a welter of speckled wisdom that I last saw in Forrest Gump. Zero is like a box of assorted chocolates. You never know what the feeling would be in the next one.
Indeed Tom Hanks from Forrest Gump would have chuckled approvingly at
Welcome to Marwen star Steve Carell on working with Robert Zemeckis, plus Vice, The Office and more.
Not only is Steve Carell genuinely nice, thoughtful and soft-spoken in real life, but he possesses a vast amount of acting talent that has been on full display in his recent work. Known for his comedic stints on The Daily Show, films like The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Anchorman and, of course, the now legendary series The Office, Carell’s body of work over the last few years has included a range of complex and fascinating roles, mostly as figures from real life: his Golden Globe-winning portrayal of John du Pont in Foxcatcher (2014), investment banker Steve Eisman/Mark Baum in The Big Short (2015), tennis star Bobby Riggs in Battle of the Sexes (2017) and, earlier this fall, journalist David Sheff in Beautiful Boy.
He’s now appearing in two films opening within
From the moment he started writing the screenplay for Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut alongside Cooper and Will Fetters, Roth said he knew they had something. And when they started shooting a few scenes and when Cooper showed him the movie — in which the director also starred as country singer Jackson Maine — he realized it was a special film.
“I got involved around Christmas time last year,” Roth told TheWrap. “I thought long and hard because I had never done a remake and the movies were obviously famous, and I didn’t want to be the person who would wreck it. It was a great challenge, but I thought, if we could accomplish this, it could be something unique — and it was well worth the challenge.
Post-“Splash,” Hanks would be recruited to host “Saturday Night Live,” his first of nine stints and a sign he had arrived. But his follow-up movies such as “Bachelor Party,” “The Man With One Red Shoe,” “Volunteers” and “The Money Pit” were the kind of generic comedies that depended on slapstick and rowdy humor to milk laughs.
Then brother Garry paired Hanks with the legendary Jackie Gleason as
He took refuge from the trauma by designing and building a miniature World War II village, which he populated with uniformed dolls, many based on the people around him. The Belgian village of Marwencol,
Robert Zemeckis, who directed “Forrest Gump,” one of the most iconic underdog movies of all time, returns with another male protagonist with a remarkable story. But this time the filmmaker doesn’t quite seem to connect with his subject, which makes for an even greater disconnect with the audience.
Gaining empathy for a protagonist such as the one in “Marwen” shouldn’t really be an issue, though. This is, after all, the real-life story of Mark Hogancamp (played by Steve Carell), who was beaten so terribly by five men outside a bar in 2000 that it left him without most of his memory of the event and everything before then — horrific details that were previously revisited in the acclaimed 2010 documentary, “Marwencol.”

The preliminary songs list allows for an eclectic assortment of singer-songwriters from the pop, rock, country, R&B and hip-hop worlds, including Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar, Dolly Parton and Troye Sivan — all of whom were already nominated for a Golden Globe this month — along with Thom Yorke, Sade, Gillian Welch and the Coup.
In the score category, all five Golden Globe nominees were cited among the top 15: Ludwig Goransson for “Black Panther,” Marco Beltrami for “A Quiet Place,” two-time Oscar winner Alexandre Desplat for “Isle of Dogs,” Marc Shaiman
