Richard III (1995)
Five pre-existing Louis C.K. comedy specials, including this spring’s “Louis C.K. 2017,” continue to live on the site, available for viewing.
Meanwhile, four projects still pop up when searching for Spacey’s name, including “House of Cards” and the documentary “Now: In the Wings on a World Stage,” a behind the scenes look at Spacey starring in the Bridge Project production of “Richard III.”
That’s not to say that the streaming service isn’t taking a hit: Netflix scrapped plans to release the Spacey starrer “Gore,” a Gore Vidal biopic that had already finished shooting. And it may have to start over on Season 6 of “House of Cards,” with Robin Wright now as star, even though that show had already been shooting.
Though sporadically brilliant, this too-often uneven send-up of Russian politics attempts to maintain the rapid-fire, semi-improvisational style of Iannucci’s earlier work — most notably his revolutionary 2009 feature “In the Loop,” still the most delightfully madcap comedy of the last decade — while situating such madness within an
Whishaw will star as Norman Scott, the ex-lover of disgraced British politician Jeremy Thorpe, played by Grant. In 1979, Thorpe, then leader of the Liberal party and the youngest leader of any British political party in a hundred years, was accused of conspiring to murder Scott. He was the first British politician in modern times to stand trial for murder.
The three-part drama is based on a book by British journalist John Preston and written by Davies, who created the modern iteration of “Doctor Who” in 2005 and has more recently created gay dramas “Cucumber” and “Banana,” for Channel 4 and E4, respectively. It will be directed by Stephen Frears, whose latest film, “Victoria & Abdul,” starring Judi Dench, sees its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival on

You may not recognise actor Steve Zahn in War For The Planet Of The Apes - clad as he is in a photo-real layer of digital paint - but his performance isn't one you'll forget in a hurry. He plays Bad Ape, a timid little character who, with his wide eyes and gentle voice, provides a glimmer of warmth and humour in a stark and often harsh movie.
Zahn's enjoyed a varied and fascinating career that stretches back to the early 90s, with
42 was one of those films.
It starred Chadwick Boseman as Jackie Robinson who was the black baseball player who first integrated Major League Baseball with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. (You may know Boseman better as the Black Panther in McU films.) It also stars Harrison Ford as Branch Rickey, the owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers who hired Robinson. (Ford you know from… well, you know Harrison Ford.) It was written and directed by Brian Helgeland, who also wrote and directed A Knight’s Tale.
As with all biopics,

Fledgling UK distribution outfit Trafalgar Releasing is eyeing growth in the gaming and international distribution markets.
Little has been publicly known about the structure and growth plan of the new player until now but the company is officially launching today after theatre impresarios Sir Howard Panter and Rosemary Squire OBE acquired Lyn Goleby’s Picturehouse distribution assets in a multi-million-pound deal earlier this year.
Former Picturehouse MD Goleby had previously bought out Picturehouse’s distribution assets from Cineworld, taking a number of key staff in the process.

Kate Mulvany and John Howard have joined the cast of The Merger, a comedy/drama which will star Damian Callinan.
Callinan has written the script based on his one-man show about a country football coach who hatches an unorthodox plan to rebuild the local football team by recruiting recently-settled asylum seekers.
Mulvany will play the mother of Neil, an inquisitive, mischievous nine-year-old who is mourning the death of his father.
Howard will portray the cantankerous former boss of the long-closed local steelworks who resents the presence of the asylum seekers.
Callinan is Troy Carrington, a former professional football player who returns to his country town after an abrupt end to his sporting career and is persuaded to coach the hapless local footy team, the Roosters.
Shooting is due to start in Wagga Wagga in October, produced by Anne Robinson and directed by Mark Grentell, the
Kevin Spacey opened the 71st annual Tony Awards with an original song that playfully pokes fun about the difficult search for this year’s host — and a nod at those rumors about his sexuality.
The song begins with Spacey trapped in a Groundhog Day cycle of waking up over and over again as the quest for a host continues.
“I know they loved James Corden, but I’ll show I came to play,” he sang, giving a shoutout to last year’s host.

“The Lie of the Land” (Episode 8, Doctor Who, Series 10): The final episode of a three-episode arc – the first two being “Extremis” and “The Pyramid at the End of the World” – in which alien “monks” have taken over the world through the consent of Bill Potts, the Doctor’s newest companion. She did this in order to have the monks cure the Doctor’s blindness – which occurred in Episode 5, “Oxygen.”
I wasn’t sure where the show was going with this, and to tell you the truth, I wasn’t much engaged by our hero’s disability; I found it more annoying than anything else,
“Trump has stolen all of our ideas for season 6,” Wright said Thursday during Variety and Kering’s Women in Motion talk at the Cannes Film Festival.
In the hit Netflix series, Wright plays Claire Underwood, the icy wife of President Frank Underwood. The two are the ultimate power couple, as ruthless as they are brilliant, and not above using their public positions for personal gain. It sounds very reminiscent to a certain Oval Office occupant. Despite the challenge of keeping “House of Cards” relevant in the current political climate, Wright said the producers know how the series is going to end, but she’s not giving any clues.
