Les Moonves Tried To Buy Accuser’s Silence With Job At CBS & Is Unlikely To Get Any Severance Pay — Report

  • Deadline
The CBS board’s support for Leslie Moonves finally ran out following the revelation that he tried to buy an accuser’s silence by getting her a job at the network, according to the New York Times.

The Times article, citing unnamed senior sources, claims that multiple board members were determined to support Moonves until they were made aware of this deception and understood that the unnamed accuser was prepared to go public with her allegations.

The story claims up until that point multiple board members had staunchly supported Moonves, with one — William Cohen — reportedly saying during a late July conference call, “We are going to stay in this meeting until midnight if we need to until we get an agreement that we stand 100 percent behind our C.E.O., and there will be no change in his status.”

Board member and producer Arnold Kopelson, who won Best Picture Oscar for Platoon

Official Trailer for Danish Mystery Thriller 'The Purity of Vengeance'

Time for a taste of some Danish mystery. Zentropa Entertainment has debuted the full official trailer for a Danish thriller titled The Purity of Vengeance, originally titled Journal 64. This film is about a series of mysterious disappearances in 1987 that are all eerily connected to the same person. The investigative thriller follows Carl Mørck and Assad from Department Q, who try to figure out how a bunch of dead bodies are connected and who's behind everything. The Purity of Vengeance stars Fares Fares, Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Nicolas Bro, Anders Hove, Søren Pilmark, and Elliott Crosset Hove. This looks very cool, a bit like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo films or even Fincher's Se7en, but with some unique twists. I am curious to see more footage from this and check it out whenever it hits theaters outside of Denmark. Dig in. Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Christoffer Boe's The Purity of Vengeance,

Opinion: SE7EN’s John Doe Didn’t Succeed as He Planned

David Fincher’s 1995 psychological horror/thriller Se7en is one of most enduring and terrifying films of its kind, standing alongside the likes of The Silence of the Lambs, Zodiac, Frailty, and The Vanishing, amongst others.

Michael Kaplan (‘The Alienist’ costume designer) waited 24 years to work on this ‘designer’s dream’ [Exclusive Video Interview]

Costume designer Michael Kaplan‘s interest in “The Alienist” stretches back to when Caleb Carr‘s original novel was first published in 1994. “I just loved so many elements of it,” he recalls. “It seemed like a designer’s dream to be able to illuminate everything that was going on in 1896.” Produced by Cary Joji Fukunaga (“True Detective”), this TNT limited series focuses on a newspaper illustrator (Luke Evans) who teams up with a criminal psychologist (Daniel Brühl) and a headstrong NYPD secretary (Dakota Fanning) to investigate a serial killer in 19th century New York City. Kaplan kept a close watch on the project’s development for 24 years before finally landing the job. Watch our exclusive video interview with Kaplan above.

The Best Movie Plot Twists of All Time — IndieWire Critics Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday.

This week’s question: Last weekend saw the release of “Adrift,” a true-life survival story that builds to an improbably big plot twist.

With that example fresh in our minds, we asked critics to pick the most satisfying plot twist they’ve seen in a film, and to expound upon why it worked so well for them.

This should go without saying, but spoiler alert.

Emma Stefansky (@stefabsky), Vanity Fair, Uproxx

I tend to miss out on classic film twists that have become so deeply entrenched in the culture that it’s easy to have them casually spoiled for you. I knew about the Keyser Söze thing before I watched “The Usual Suspects,” and I don’t think “I am your father” really registered for me when I saw “The Empire Strikes Back” as a kid.

Born Ronald Lee Ermey in Emporia, Kansas, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps at 17 when, after a second arrest for criminal mischief, he was given the choice between jail or the military. He chose the latter.

“Gunny,” as he became to be known, was a drill instructor in the 3rd Recruit Training Battalion in San Diego, where he served in the mid-’60s. He was stationed in Okinawa, Japan, in 1968, before being sent to Vietnam for 14 months, at which time he was medically discharged because of injuries. In 2002, he received an honorary promotion to gunnery sergeant.

While attending the University of Manila in the Philippines, Emery was cast in his first film — Francis Ford Coppola’s “Apocalypse Now,” playing a First Air Cavalry chopper pilot. Eight years later, he was cast as drill instructor Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket,” earning a Golden Globe nomination in the process.

Among his 60 other film roles were “Mississippi Burning,” “Dead Man Walking,” Se7en,” ‘Leaving Las Vegas” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.”

Emery also appeared on the small screen in “Miami Vice,” “House” and “The X-Files,” and his commanding voice can be heard in such animated projects as the “Toy Story” film franchise, “The Simpsons,” “Family Guy” and “SpongeBob SquarePants.”

He went on to host two series on the History Channel, “Mail Call” and “Lock N’ Load With R. Lee Emery,” and “Gunny Time” on the Outdoor channel.

Emery is survived by his wife of 43 years, Nina, and their four children.

For the record: A previous version of this story incorrectly reported Ermey’s age.

More Streaming Options

If you're bored with your new choices on Netflix, thought we'd give a shout out to a few options for only 99¢ on iTunes at the moment. Stronger, with Jake Gyllenhaal (who won our Bronze for Best Actor for last season) is their movie of the week. But in their often changing "Movies You Might Have Missed" section, also 99¢, they're currently offering five Pedro Almodóvar movies, Meryl Streep in She-Devil (which the Month of Meryl column hits next Thursday), the Glenn Close classic Fatal Attraction, David Fincher's Se7en, and, um, a Chinese remake of the unimprovable 90s romcom My Best Friend's Wedding... but at least it stars Shu Qi so it *might* be worth 99¢

East End Film Festival Movie Review – Charismata (2018)

Charismata, 2018

Directed by Andy Collier and Toor Mian

Starring Sarah Beck Mather, Jamie Satterthwaite, Adonis Anthony, Johnny Vivash, Ross Mullan, Sean Knopp

Synopsis:

When a troubled police detective (Sarah Beck Mather) gets embroiled in the case of a potential serial killer, whose motivation appears to be driven by Satanism, she struggles to maintain her sanity within a male driven police force as the body count rises.

Coming across like an extended episode of The X-Files, Andy Collier and Toor Mian’s occult crime horror feels like one of those films you’d discover late at night on terrestrial television, and stick with largely thanks to Mather’s excellent portrayal of a woman’s descent into a literal and personal hell.

Introduced shrouded in a portentous red light, a warning of the path she’s about to walk, Mather’s rookie detective immediately earns your sympathy. Not only is she exposed

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in April 2018

Spring is here, love is in the air, and everyone is finally ready to go back outside, but Netflix’s April offerings are giving us at least seven more compelling reasons to stay on the couch for at least another few weeks. This month brings an eclectic mix of new movies to the streaming platform, from the sweet Americana of “The Iron Giant” to the decidedly less sweet Americana of “Scarface” — from the mad brilliance of Philip Seymour Hoffman in “Along Came Polly” to the brilliant madness of the Wachowskis’ “Speed Racer.” We’ve also got “Deep Blue Sea” and David Fincher’s “Se7en,” two very different movies about two very different monsters (super sharks and Kevin Spacey, respectively).

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Used Steven Soderbergh for Inspiration and Shot With A New Kind of IMAX Camera

The Russo Brothers are known for their surprising sources of inspiration when it comes to their Marvel movies. The filmmaking duo cited Alan J. Pakula’s classic conspiracy thriller “The Parallax View” when talking about “Captain America: The Winter Solider,” while David Fincher’s “Se7en” was listed as a reference point for “Captain America: Civil War.” So what movies did the brothers look at before “Infinity War”? It turns out a Steven Soderbergh crime classic.

“The movies that we looked at [were’Two Days in the Valley’ and ‘Out of Sight,'” Anthony Russo told Collider. “We always look to movies for an inspiration for the energy that we’re looking for, or a narrative construct that we want to be inspired by, and those two films in particular.”

Joe Russo admits that people have misinterpreted their inspiration choices in the past. For “Infinity War,” for instance, films like “Out of Sight” weren’t used for plot
