Ryan Reynold's Free Guy Begins Shooting, First Set Photo Revealed
Detective Pikachu is being hailed as one of the few good video game movies, and it nearly beat Avengers: Endgame this past weekend at the box office. Today, Ryan Reynolds continues his love for video game based cinema with a first look at Free Guy.

Cannes Critics’ Week Unveils Its Lineup

  • Variety
Lorcan Finnegan’s science-fiction thriller “Vivarium” with Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots, Jérémy Clapin’s fantasy-filled animated feature “I Lost My Body,” and Hlynur Pálmason’s Icelandic drama “A White, White Day” are among the 11 films set to compete at Critics’ Week, the section dedicated to first and second films that runs parallel with the Cannes Film Festival.

Vivarium,” described by Critics’ Week’s artistic director Charles Tesson as reminiscent of “The Twilight Zone” and “The Truman Show,” follows a young couple (Eisenberg and Poots) who have just moved into a new housing development and find themselves in a maze of identical homes and a surreal world.

“A White, White Day” marks Pálmason’s follow up to his 2017 feature debut, “Winter Brothers,” which won three prizes at Locarno, followed by a healthy festival run. “A White, White Day” stars Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson (“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”) as an

Keshet Reality Show ‘2025’ Greenlit for Second Season (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Keshet Broadcasting has greenlit the second season of its lavish reality show “2025,” which pits 12 contestants against each other in a near-future city constructed from scratch in the Israeli desert.

The pilot season, which is having its finale Wednesday, had a solid rookie season. It debuted with respectable ratings, which then dropped for awhile before stabilizing. The network acknowledged that, as a new format, the show and its scheduling required some tinkering as it went along. Still, Keshet said, “2025” finished first in its slot on 17 out of its 21 primetime airings, and defeated “Big Brother VIP” in three out of four head-to-head matchups.

Keshet said the show currently ranks 4th out of the top-10 reality shows that have premiered in Israel since 2017.

The series brings together contestants from different backgrounds who are filmed by 150 cameras and have to play a game of strategy in which their status depends on their popularity and

Taika Waititi Will Join Ryan Reynolds in Director Shawn Levy's Free Guy

It looks like Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) is going to take a break from directing and appear in Ryan Reynolds‘ upcoming film Free Guy, which is being directed by Stranger Things producer and director Shawn Levy. It’s also reported that Utkarsh Ambudkar has also joined the film.

The story centers around a bank teller (Reynolds) “stuck in his routine discovers he’s a background character in a rather brutal open world, action-adventure video game and he is the only one capable of saving his world.” It’s also said the film is in the vein of The Truman Show.

There’s no information on who Waititi is playing, but he will join the previously cast Jodie Comer, Joe Kerry and Lil Rel.

I love the concept. This could end up being an incredibly fun movie, especially with a cast like Reynolds and Waititi. I hope that they share a lot of screen time together!

Jim Carrey Says Awards Season Is A ‘Gigantic Clusterf*ck’ He’s Not Interested In

Jim Carrey Says Awards Season Is A ‘Gigantic Clusterf*ck’ He’s Not Interested In
Jim Carrey is expected to pick up his first acting Emmy nomination later this year for his work on the Showtime comedy series “Kidding,” but don’t expect the actor to drop everything so he can vigorously hit the awards season campaign trail. Carrey, who has rarely been an awards darling despite turning in beloved comedic and dramatic performances for decades, recently spoke to Vanity Fair about his annoyance with Oscar season and how campaigning is a game he just has no interest in playing.

“There’s a lot of monkey business that goes on around awards,” Carrey said when a reporter brought up he has yet to earn an Oscar nomination. “[It’s a] gigantic clusterfuck…if you don’t show up to a certain dinner, you screw your chances and all those things. I’ve never been real good at playing that game.”

‘Everybody’s Everything’ Review: Terrence Malick Exec Produces Moving Doc on Rapper Lil Peep

‘Everybody’s Everything’ Review: Terrence Malick Exec Produces Moving Doc on Rapper Lil Peep
The rapper Lil Peep tweeted 15 times on the day he died. At 1:14am: “Nightmares to u is my life to me.” That was followed by a handful of links to music he liked or wanted to self-promote, a fan retweet of some performance footage, and an emoji-filled reference to his stage name, which the 21-year-old’s loving mom had coined when he was a child. Finally, at 5:01pm, he shared a shoutout to his “biggest fan” Nick Bons, an incarcerated felon whose sister had allegedly provided the rapper with drugs. Lil Peep was found dead a few hours later in the back of a tour bus outside the Tucson, Arizona, venue where he’d been scheduled to perform; his body would later test positive for everything from cannabis and cocaine to prescription-grade painkillers like Tramadol and oxycodone.

Actors Who Haven’t Won an Oscar

Actors Who Haven’t Won an Oscar
After Olivia Colman upset the heavily favored Glenn Close to win the best actress Oscar on Sunday, Close became the new record-holder among actresses for most Oscar nominations without a win.

Colman gave a gracious acceptance speech, admitting she wished the veteran actress took home the big prize: “Glenn Close, you’ve been my idol for so long and this is not how I wanted it to be.”

Close now has seven nominations and no wins for “The Wife,” “Albert Nobbs,” “Fatal Attraction,” “Dangerous Liaisons,” “The World According to Garp,” “The Big Chill,” and “The Natural.”

Close had been tied with the late Thelma Ritter and the late Deborah Kerr for most nominations without a win, with six. On Sunday, Amy Adams joined Ritter and Kerr for having six nominations without a win following her loss for “Vice.” She was previously nominated for “Junebug,” “Doubt,” “The Fighter,” “The Master,” and “American Hustle.

Fox Has Parked Ford Vs. Ferrari Movie In Awards Season; ‘Kingsman’ Prequel And ‘Free Guy’ Set For 2020

  • Deadline
20th Century Fox said that it will release James Mangold’s untitled Ford Vs. Ferrari movie on November 15, 2019, putting it squarely into the film awards-season corridor. It had been dated for June 28 and now takes over the mid-month slot previously held by Matthew Vaughn’s next Kingsman movie.

That pic, which will serve as a prequel to the previous two Kingsmen movies, will now be released February 14, 2020.

Fox also solidified another 2020 bow, setting a July 3 release for the Ryan Reynolds-Shawn Levy team-up Free Guy.

Mangold’s Ford-Ferrari movie stars Matt Damon as Carroll Shelby Carroll and current Oscar Best Actor nominee Christian Bale as British driver Ken Miles and centers on a team of American engineers and designers dispatched by Ford to build a new race car to defeat the perennially dominant Ferrari at the 1966 Le Mans World Championship.

Could Sam Elliott (‘A Star is Born’) replicate James Coburn’s upset victory at the Oscars?

Could Sam Elliott (‘A Star is Born’) replicate James Coburn’s upset victory at the Oscars?
The Oscar race for Best Supporting Actor is shaping up to be all Mahershala Ali all the time for “Green Book,” but is there a chance Sam Elliott (“A Star is Born”) could still upset for his role as tortured musician’s manager? It looks like a long shot, but this particular Oscar category often serves as a de facto lifetime achievement award, and as such Elliott could follow a trajectory similar to James Coburn‘s victory for “Affliction” (1998).

Coburn was a veteran actor who had never received an Oscar nomination before, just like Elliott. And Coburn had inconsistent results at precursor events, only earning nominations from the Screen Actors Guild and Independent Spirit Awards before his Oscar win — and he had lost both of those. Likewise, Elliott has had mixed results, earning nominations at the Critics’ Choice and SAG Awards but missing out at the Golden Globes and BAFTAs.

On cloud 9: Alfonso Cuaron expected to be 9th director to win 2 BAFTA Awards
After becoming the 13th person to win two Directors Guild of America Awards, Alfonso Cuaron is poised to join an even more exclusive group: two-time Best Director BAFTA winners.

The “Roma” director is our odds-on favorite to take home the prize at Sunday’s ceremony, with 31/10 odds over Yorgos Lanthimos (“The Favourite”), Spike Lee (“BlacKkKlansman”), Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”) and Pawel Pawlikowski (“Cold War”). He previously won for his direction of “Gravity” (2013), for which he also won the Oscar.

Only eight people have double Best Director BAFTA Awards, the most wins in the category. The most recent to join this club was Joel Coen, who took home his second statuette for “No Country for Old Men” (2007) to go with his win for “Fargo” (1996).

Keshet Confirms February Bow In Israel Of Ambitious Reality Series ‘2025’ – Natpe

  • Deadline
In a keynote appearance at Natpe, Keshet CEO Avi Nir said 2025, a new reality series that has spawned rumors in the Israeli press in recent months, will begin airing in two weeks.

Backers describe the show as a singular blend of Black Mirror, Westworld, The Truman Show and Monopoly. Earlier this month, Keshet started teasing 2025 on social media, posting and then deleting images of a restaurant, a clothing store and a bank, from the show’s set south of Tel Aviv.

Nir said the show will air four days a week, wrapping in the spring, but for the moment broadcasts are planned only in Israel. “We’ve been approached by everybody” to take the show wider, he said, but no partnerships with other networks have been set.

An entire “gold city” has been built for the show on the outskirts of Yavne, just south of Tel Aviv, with its own

Bertrand Blier: Love Is the Most Boring Subject of All

Bertrand Blier: Love Is the Most Boring Subject of All
Paris — In his first feature since 2010’s “The Clink of Ice,” filmmaker Bertrand Blier returns with a somber, existentialist farce reminiscent of the last century’s most celebrated absurdist theater.

Vladimir and Estragon, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, meet Taupin and Foster (Gérard Depardieu and Christian Clavier). One is homeless, the other well off, though that dynamic eventually flips. As they ramble the streets of Brussels, the two are constantly met by legions of script supervisors, who deliver them the latest pages and revisions that will inform their next steps.

As in “The Truman Show,” an all-seeing showrunner lies behind the scenes; as in “Six Characters in Search of an Author,” our protagonists sometimes bristle at the roles they have been cast into.

Still, the film’s premise is less an existential treatise than a malleable platform for a series of monologues, dialogues and testy exchanges. More than anything else, “Heavy Duty

Kevin Hart to star in Monopoly movie from director Tim Story

After years of rumours, the big screen adaptation of the classic board game Monopoly looks like it’s finally set to pass go, with Deadline reporting that Kevin Hart has signed on to star in the movie, which will reunite him with his Ride Along director Tim Story.

Plot details for the film are being kept tightly under wraps. As Deadline reveals, a previous incarnation of the project has followed a man on a quest to make his fortune, but it’s unclear whether this incarnation will follow a similar path.

Lionsgate is teaming with Hasbro’s Allspark Pictures to produce the movie, which has been in development for over a decade and has had Andrew Niccol (The Truman Show) and Ridley Scott (Alien) attached at various points.

After dropping out as host of the Oscars following a backlash against past anti-Lgbtq tweets, Hart is currently preparing to go
