Playboy Walks Back Ennio Morricone Interview Trashing Quentin Tarantino as a ‘Cretin’

  • The Wrap
Playboy’s German publisher is walking back its defense of a recent article published about Oscar-winning composer Ennio Morricone, admitting that Morricone’s words were “reproduced incorrectly.”

The magazine apologized to Morricone after he threatened to sue Playboy in a libel lawsuit over the interview that quoted him trashing Quentin Tarantino as a “cretin.”

“Up to now, we have considered the freelancer who conducted the Ennio Morricone interview on our behalf to be a renowned print and radio journalist. In the past, we have had no reason to doubt his journalistic integrity and skills,” Playboy’s German publisher, Hubert Burda Media, said in a statement.

“Based on the information now at our disposal, we must unfortunately assume that the words spoken in the interview have, in part, been reproduced incorrectly. We would like to express our regret should Mr. Morricone have been portrayed in a false light. We are working

The Grinch Review

Benedict Cumberbatch gives good Grinch.

This is a fact some of us have long suspected, of course. But Illumination Entertainment’s reimagining of Dr Seuss’s Christmas antihero leaves us in no doubt. Only an Englishman trained in the theatrical arts could truly convey the unique mix of resentment, anger, envy and ennui that the most wonderful time of the year inspires. And, though he may deliver his animus in an American drawl, at shrunken heart, The Grinch is every inch the Ebenezer geezer Mr. Dickens imagined.

The Grinch lives in delicious hermitude, in a cavernous cave dwelling perched high above the bustling town of Whoville. Waited upon by his loyal hound Max, The Grinch spends his days luxuriating in his own loneliness; playing Phantom-esque dirges on a magnificent organ and smashing the fa la la la las out of his persistent alarm clock. His number one priority: to shun

Women of #MeToo Gather for Much-Needed Moment of Healing

Women of #MeToo Gather for Much-Needed Moment of Healing
For the past year, actress Rosanna Arquette has been a leading voice in the #MeToo movement, headlining events, giving interviews and lending her star power to the fight against sexual misconduct in the workplace.

But even though she’s no stranger to accolades, being applauded for her activism by a roaring 1,500 women at the “Power Women Summit” in downtown Los Angeles Friday left her so overwhelmed, she completely blanked out.

“I had a little shutdown,” she told TheWrap almost apologetically. “I kind of went out of my body for minute. I felt really emotional being with the girls.”

Arquette, who was among the first women to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct last year, was one of more than two dozen #MeToo advocates honored at the event, aimed at achieving gender equity in entertainment and media.

See Dillon Carmichael’s Retro-Cool ‘Dancing Away With My Heart’ Video
Dillon Carmichael may not be a fan of weddings, but it’s only because he’s a hopeless romantic. In the new video for his song “Dancing Away With My Heart,” even the world-weary country rocker comes to believe in second chances.

With its title cards and grainy, vintage vibe, the video — directed by Clay Hassler — feels like a stylistic cross between Pulp Fiction and Goodfellas, minus all the violence. “Dancing Away With My Heart” opens with a disgruntled Carmichael in a phone booth begrudgingly agreeing to do a wedding gig.

Samuel L. Jackson on His Return to the ‘Unbreakable’ Universe in ‘Glass’

Samuel L. Jackson on His Return to the ‘Unbreakable’ Universe in ‘Glass’
M. Night Shyamalan totally M. Night Shyamalan’d Samuel L. Jackson with the ending of his 2016 comeback hit, Split. Shyamalan told Jackson he needed to set up a screening to see the film, adding, “Call me when it’s over.” Split’s final moments offer one of Shyamalan’s best twists ever (spoiler alert!) when Bruce Willis pops up as his proto-superhero character from 2000’s Unbreakable, thus revealing that Split’s multiple-personality monster (James McAvoy) exists in the same universe as that movie — which, of course, also starred Jackson as Elijah Price,

Cate Blanchett To Star In ‘Mrs. America’ Limited Series Ordered By FX

  • Deadline
FX has given a nine-episode order to Mrs. America, a timely limited series starring Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning actor Cate Blanchett in her first role on American television. The series hails from Emmy-winning writer Davhi Waller (Mad Men), Oscar-nominated producer Stacey Sher and FX Productions. Blanchett also executive produces Mrs. America with Sher; Waller, who also serves as showrunner; and Coco Francini (The Hateful Eight). Production is scheduled to begin in 2019.

Mrs. America tells the true story of the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, and the unexpected backlash led by a conservative woman named Phyllis Schlafly, played by Blanchett. Through the eyes of the women of that era — both Schlafly and second-wave feminists Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Shirley Chisholm, Bella Abzug and Jill Ruckelshaus — the series explores how one of the toughest battlegrounds in the culture wars of the ’70s helped give rise to

Karl Urban Keeping His Fingers Crossed For Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek

While Star Trek 4 seems to have hit a brick wall, another – and much more surprising – Star Trek film is moving forward instead. As you’ve surely heard, Quentin Tarantino has signed up to direct an R-rated movie set in the Kelvin timeline of the Trek universe, complete with the modern cast.

While this is an intriguing development for fans of the filmmaker, Trek lovers might be somewhat apprehensive about the Pulp Fiction director getting his hands on the beloved sci-fi franchise. I mean, should we expect Samuel L. Jackson to stop by and drop a load of F-bombs? And is Michael Madsen going to chop a Klingon’s ear off?

Those are the questions we still need answers to, but unfortunately, Karl Urban – who’s played Bones since 2009’s Star Trek – isn’t spilling anything. Though not because he doesn’t want to. Rather, he just doesn’t know yet

Samuel L Jackson Presses Trump on Definition of Terrorism: ‘Can You Say It???!!!!!!’
Samuel L. Jackson channeled his “Pulp Fiction” character Jules Winnfield in a tweet where he reacted to President Trump’s response to the mysterious packages sent to CNN’s New York City office on Wednesday, as well as the residences of the Clintons, the Obamas and George Soros, among others.

Jackson pressed Trump to call the attacks what they are in a way that only the actor could.

Earlier in the day, President Trump issued a statement on the attacks, saying, “In these times, we have to unify. We have to come together and send one very clear, strong and unmistakable message that acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America.” However, according to The Washington Post, Trump did not respond to a shouted question as to whether the bombs were domestic terrorism.

John Travolta’s ‘Speed Kills’ Looks Like A Terrible Film, A Sloppy Vr Experience, & Perhaps The Greatest Thing Ever

Remember good John Travolta? I’m talking “Saturday Night Fever,” “Pulp Fiction,” “Grease” (although severely problematic as a film), and “Get Shorty.” The actor, known for his penchant to be a wee-bit over the top, has turned in some incredible Academy Award-nominated work over the course of his 40+ year career. But lately, outside of a strong turn in ‘The People v.

‘Blue Iguana’ Review

Stars: Sam Rockwell, Ben Schwartz, Phoebe Fox, Peter Ferdinando, Peter Polycarpou, Simon Callow, Frances Barber, Amanda Donohoe, Al Weaver, Glenn Wrage, Robin Hellier, Pedro Lloyd Gardiner, Andre Flynn, Perry Jaques, Anton Saunders, Vic Waghorn, Paul Chan, Martin Muncaster, Jack Silver, Tom Tunney | Written and Directed by Hadi Hajaig

Opening a crime film, an indie crime film for that matter, in a diner only screams to remind audiences of Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, setting a high bar for the film to come. Which, frankly, means your film better live up to that expectation… Thankfully Blue Iguana does.

Blue Iguana, a British-American crime film, tells the story of ex-jailbirds, Eddie (Sam Rockwell) and Paul (Ben Schwartz), who are on parole, working in a New York diner… Eddie is calm and confident, whereas, Paul is loud-mouthed and impulsive. They’re a team, but their lives are at a dead-end. That is, until

“Bad Times At The El Royale” is overstuffed yet pulpy fun from Drew Goddard

No good film is too long and no bad film is too short. That’s an old saying that does ring true most of the time. That being said, occasionally there are exceptions to the rule. This week, there’s a movie opening that threatens to be that exception. Bad Times at the El Royale is a fun flick, but it’s also way too long. The good outweighs the bad, but with a shaved down running time, this could have been a total blast. Credit where it’s due for getting something unique like this made, so kudos to Drew Goddard, but as much of a fan of his previous work as I am, I couldn’t help wishing that this one had been trimmed down, at least a bit. The film is a mystery/thriller set at the run down El Royale hotel in Lake Tahoe. During one long night,

Nyff: The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

Jason Adams reporting from the New York Film Festival

Anthology films always have a bit of an under-cooked quality - you like a chunk of meat here, a chunk of potato there, but the stew's uneven, the broth skinned over from sitting. Even the very best ones can feel haphazard - you can and should certainly argue that Pulp Fiction is an anthology film, albeit one that's po-mo'd up in glorious fashion, but some days you're just not in the mood for Honey Bunny, ya dig?  The Coens' six-part The Ballad of Buster Scruggs maintains that streak - highs, lows, and everything in between, slapped between two fraying book covers...

How Hulu Horror Anthology ‘Into the Dark: The Body’s’ Tone Ranges From ‘Pulp Fiction’ to ‘Get Out’

How Hulu Horror Anthology ‘Into the Dark: The Body’s’ Tone Ranges From ‘Pulp Fiction’ to ‘Get Out’
When Paul Davis and Paul Fischer initially set out to expand their 2013 short film “The Body” into a feature, they did so on spec, not knowing Blumhouse was going to set a deal with Hulu for a monthly horror anthology series called “Into the Dark.” Although their story — about a hitman who is lugging the corpse of his latest victim on Halloween — lent itself perfectly to the holiday theme Blumhouse was going for and became “Into the Dark’s” premiere piece, there was one big change they wanted to make in the adaptation.

“The hitman, Wilkes, he got away with it in the short — he got pranked by a couple of guys that you thought were police officers, but were actually two guys dressed for Halloween, and they kind of sent him on his way, the joke’s on him, ha ha ha. But in this one, I said to myself,

Bad Times at the El Royale Review #2: Worshipping at the Altar of Tarantino

Bad Times at the El Royale Review #2: Worshipping at the Altar of Tarantino
Bad Times at the El Royale is a noir crime thriller cut from the Pulp Fiction mold. The juicy bits are scintillating, but the film runs long in stretches. The loquacious characters chew up the screen with wordy monologues. This tactic is initially clever, then becomes a drag. The mystery is intriguing. It just takes forever to get going.

The story takes place over the course of one night in 1969. The El Royale is a motel divided evenly across the California and Nevada border. Formerly a swinging party venue for crooners, politicians, and criminals, the El Royale has fallen into disrepair after losing its gambling license. Four random strangers check in on the fateful night. Jeff Bridges stars as Father Daniel Flynn, an aging priest with a memory problem. Cynthia Erivo co-stars as Darlene Sweet, a soul singer on her way to Reno. Jon Hamm and Dakota Johnson play supporting
