New to Netflix in September: ‘Black Panther,’ ‘A Wrinkle in Time,’ and ‘The Breakfast Club’

Ah, movies. Remember those, Netflix viewers? Because why binge every episode of “Queer Eye” when you could do a “Black Panther,” “Spider-Man 3,” and “The Breakfast Club” triple-header? It would take just as much time and be much more educational.

All three are heading to the streaming giant next month, along with “The Cider House Rules,” “A Wrinkle in Time,” and “Groundhog Day.” Netflix gets into the comedy game with originals, including Sanaa Lathan in “Nappily Ever After” and “Sierra Burgess Is A Loser,” starring Shannon Purser of “Stranger Things” and “Riverdale” fame. Rashida Jones makes her directorial debut next month with “Quincy,” the definitive documentary about her legendary father, Quincy Jones.

Lasse Hallstrom, Joe Johnston to Share Directing Credit on Disney’s ‘Nutcracker’

Lasse Hallstrom, Joe Johnston to Share Directing Credit on Disney’s ‘Nutcracker’
Lasse Hallstrom and Joe Johnston will have a unique shared directing credit on Disney’s upcoming “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.”

The helmers — who are not a directing team — will be listed on the same title card for “The Nutcracker,” which stars Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren, Misty Copeland, and Mackenzie Foy.

Hallstrom was the first director on the movie. Johnston was hired for a month of re-shoots, requiring extensive special effects, when Hallstrom was not available to film the additional footage.

Typically, under the Directors Guild of America’s rules, only one filmmaker can be credited with directing a film. That was the case on “Bohemian Rhapsody,” in which Bryan Singer was given the credit, even though he was fired in the latter stages of shooting and replaced by Dexter Fletcher. That rule can be waived to allow two directors to be credited when filmmakers have a history of

The Evolution of Charlize Theron, From ‘Monster’ to ‘Tully’ (Photos)

The Evolution of Charlize Theron, From ‘Monster’ to ‘Tully’ (Photos)
Everyone’s favorite South African actress Charlize Theron has shown vast range in her 20+ year career. The intense, crazed action of “Mad Max: Fury Road” the foul-mouthed slacker in “Young Adult,” the ditzy blonde on “Arrested Development,” and the literal “Monster” she won an Oscar for all sit side by side on her resume. Theron’s new film “Tully” opening Friday finds her in a role she’s never tackled before, a modern mom in way over her head. So it is we chart Theron’s growth as an actress and producer in a timeline stretching back to her earliest work.

Modeling and Dancing Years

Theron got her start as a model and a dancer, even attending the Joffrey School of Ballet until a knee injury made her rethink her career in America.

2 Days in the Valley” (1996)

Theron’s first film speaking role was as the sultry Helga Svelgen in the thriller “2 Days in the Valley,” where she starred opposite Teri Hatcher, Jeff Daniels, James Spader and Danny Aiello.

“The Devil’s Advocate” (1997)

Theron had a string of larger projects in the late ’90s where she was attracted to working with interesting directors, be it Taylor Hackford on the Keanu Reeves film “The Devil’s Advocate,” Woody Allen for “Celebrity,” Lasse Hallstrom for “The Cider House Rules” or John Frankenheimer for “The Reindeer Games.”

The Italian Job” (2003)

One of Theron’s first major action star roles was in “The Italian Job,” a remake of a classic heist caper where she starred opposite Mark Wahlberg and helped to make Mini Coopers awesome.

Monster” (2003)

Theron went under a complete transformation to play Aileen Wournos, a prostitute turned serial killer. The film she produced along with her production company Denver & Delilah. And her crazed, intense, raw work won her an Oscar.

North Country” (2005)

In Niki Caro’s drama about one of the first sexual harassment cases in the United States, Theron earned another Oscar nomination playing a woman who leaves her abusive husband and takes a job working in a mine.

Arrested Development” (2005)

Theron guest starred during the third season of the cult sitcom “Arrested Development” as Rita, a love interest to Michael Bluth. She plays cute on the show, toying with the idea that she might be a British spy investigating the Bluths, until it’s revealed that she’s actually got the intelligence and attention span of a toddler.

“Aeon Flux” (2006)

Theron’s role as an exotic and mysterious assassin with a slick, jet black haircut in “Aeon Flux” didn’t take off as a franchise or at the box office, but it cemented Theron as a capable action star.

Young Adult” (2011)

After a brief hiatus on the big screen, Theron took a radically different role as foul-mouthed slacker Mavis Gary, who tries to relive her glory days and make it with her high school sweetheart after going through a tough breakup.

Mad Max: Fury Road” (2015)

The continuation of the “Mad Max” trilogy turned out to be a bait and switch where the film’s real star was Theron as Imperator Furiosa. With one arm, a shaved head and absolute intensity, she anchored one of the best action movies of the decade.

Atomic Blonde” (2017)

Theron took another punishing role as something of a female John Wick in the stylized action movie “Atomic Blonde,” even doing all of her own stunts in the film.

Tully” (2018)

“Tully” reunites Theron with her “Young Adult” director and writing combo Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody. In it, she plays a mother of three and a newborn in way over her head who forms a bond with her millennial nanny. Theron gained 50 pounds for the role.

Emmy spotlight: Delroy Lindo is remarkable in standout episode of ‘The Good Fight’ Season 2

Emmy spotlight: Delroy Lindo is remarkable in standout episode of ‘The Good Fight’ Season 2
When legal drama “The Good Fight” debuted last year, celebrated actor Delroy Lindo quickly became a standout of the series’ enviable ensemble led by Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo and Rose Leslie. Lindo’s role of name-partner Adrian Boseman recently landed him a Critics’ Choice Award nomination for Best Drama Supporting Actor for his performance in the first season of the show, a spinoff of the CBS prestige series “The Good Wife.” Following his performance in the second season’s “Day 443,” which originally streamed on CBS All Access on April 8, Lindo certainly should be considered a contender for an Emmy nomination at the upcoming 70th annual ceremony to complement his Critics’ Choice bid.

In “Day 443,” Lindo takes center stage in three of the installment’s four storylines. The episode opens with Adrian’s first appearance on cable news show “Review of the Day,” which he films in isolation via satellite in a skeevy studio.

Who’s your favorite Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner of 1980s: Jack Nicholson, Kevin Kline, Denzel Washington … ? [Poll]
Like the other acting winners of the 1980s, the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor went to big stars and character actors alike. The ’80s featured big-name winners like Jack Nicholson, Kevin Kline, Sean Connery and Michael Caine alongside hardworking veterans like John Gielgud, Louis Gossett Jr. and Don Ameche. The Academy also rewarded emerging talent, like Timothy Hutton, Haing S. Ngor and the now double-champ Denzel Washington.

So who is your favorite Best Supporting Actor winner of the 1980s? Look back on each performance and be sure to vote in our poll below.

Timothy Hutton, “Ordinary People” (1980) — Hutton came out of the gate strong with his heartbreaking performance in Best Picture winner “Ordinary People.” Hutton plays Conrad Jarrett, a teenager wracked with guilt after his brother is killed in a boating accident.

‘The Dark Knight’ still ‘Rises’ at the Oscars: Gary Oldman is 6th Oscar winner from the cast – will Tom Hardy get a turn?
The Dark Knight Rises” (2012) was the only film in Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy not to receive a single Oscar nomination but despite that it has had a pretty good track record at the awards. By the time of its release four of its actors already had Oscars: Christian Bale (“The Fighter”), Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”), Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”) and Michael Caine (“Hannah and Her Sisters” and “The Cider House Rules”). Then Anne Hathaway won an Oscar for “Les Miserables,” which opened the same year. This year’s Oscars turned out to be pretty good for “The Dark Knight Rises” too, especially for Gary Oldman, the erstwhile Commissioner Gordon who just won Best Actor for “Darkest Hour.” Check out the complete list of Oscar winners here.

Anonymous Oscar Ballot: Producer Says Oscar Voters Tend Toward ‘Political Correctness’ and ‘Laziness’

Anonymous Oscar Ballot: Producer Says Oscar Voters Tend Toward ‘Political Correctness’ and ‘Laziness’
Here’s another in our series of interviews with a swath of Academy voters from different branches for their candid thoughts on what got picked, overlooked, and overvalued this year.

With the nominations, everything followed the politically coolest version and will continue to do so. Any surprises will lean toward political correctness this year. We’re supposed to judge 100 per cent on merit, not 90 per cent and 10 per cent who is in the middle of a controversy [James Franco], who is deserving because their race or gender has been under-represented in the past.

The one fault the Academy has had in the last 10 or 15 years is not that it’s racist or gender-weighted. The biggest offense is that [Academy voters] are not doing their homework, not seeing the movies. There’s not a bias, there’s a tendency for laziness, to check the same old box, whether its Denzel Washington or Meryl Streep.

Oscars 2018: Which 20 previous winners should present to this year’s 20 acting nominees?

Oscars 2018: Which 20 previous winners should present to this year’s 20 acting nominees?
One of the highlights of the 2009 Academy Awards ceremony was the surprise addition of 20 Oscar winners presenting to that year’s acting nominees. It started with five Best Supporting Actress champs (Whoopi Goldberg, Goldie Hawn, Anjelica Huston, Eva Marie Saint, Tilda Swinton) who gave out the award to Penelope Cruz, welcoming her to their club. While all of those presenting that evening had indeed won the category before, each one often had no connection at all to the person they were introducing.

The following year new producers followed a similar format of five people presenting to a new crop of five for the lead categories only. While all of them had working relationships with the nominees (like Michelle Pfeiffer for Jeff Bridges and Stanley Tucci for Meryl Streep), most of them were not Oscar winners.

2018 Oscars: Christopher Plummer (‘All the Money in the World’) gunning to be seventh person to win Best Supporting Actor twice

2018 Oscars: Christopher Plummer (‘All the Money in the World’) gunning to be seventh person to win Best Supporting Actor twice
Christopher Plummer’s last-minute casting and reshoot for “All the Money in the World” resulted in a third Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for him — all in the last decade and all while he’s in his 80s. Should Plummer upset frontrunner Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), he’d join a small group of two-time champs in the category.

While Walter Brennan holds the category record with three wins — which he bagged in the first five years of the award — six men have bookend Best Supporting Actor statuettes: Anthony Quinn (1952’s “Viva Zapata!” and 1956’s “Lust for Life”), Peter Ustinov (1960’s “Spartacus” and 1964’s “Topkapi”), Melvin Douglas (1963’s “Hud” and 1979’s “Being There”), Jason Robards (1976’s “All the President’s Men” and 1977’s “Julia”), Michael Caine (1986’s “Hannah and Her Sisters” and 1999 “The Cider House Rules”) and Christoph Waltz (2009’s “Inglourious Basterds” and 2012’s Django Unchained”).

Paul Thomas Anderson (‘Phantom Thread’) earns 7th & 8th Oscar nominations on 20th anniversary of his 1st for ‘Boogie Nights’

Paul Thomas Anderson (‘Phantom Thread’) earns 7th & 8th Oscar nominations on 20th anniversary of his 1st for ‘Boogie Nights’
Paul Thomas Anderson earned a pair of Oscar nominations this year for Best Picture and Best Director for the romantic drama “Phantom Thread.” It might have been as surprising to him as it was to us Oscar pundits, who didn’t see those nominations coming. And it was an even more meaningful honor for the filmmaker considering it came exactly 20 years after his first academy bid for “Boogie Nights” (1997).

Anderson contended in Best Original Screenplay for that film, a sprawling chronicle of one man’s (Mark Walhberg) adventures in the California adult film world of the late 1970s and 1980s — like Robert Altman‘s “Nashville” for the porn industry. The film reaped additional bids for supporting players Burt Reynolds and Julianne Moore, who lost to Robin Williams (“Good Will Hunting”) and Kim Basinger (“L.A. Confidential”), respectively. Anderson lost his category to “Hunting” scribes Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.

How often do the four SAG champs go on to win Oscars?
With their wins at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”), Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards”) and Allison Janney (“I, Tonya”) continue their march toward becoming the first foursome to sweep the Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice, SAG, BAFTA and Oscar. Their SAG victories are the most important ones of the three groups so far, as the SAGs have a fantastic correlation with the Oscars; SAG has only missed five times in Best Actor, six times in Best Actress, nine times in Best Supporting Actor and seven times in Best Supporting Actress. But despite so much overlap between the individual races, SAG does not go 4-for-4 with Oscar in one season as often as you might think.

Over its 23-year history, SAG has only had a direct match in all four Oscar acting races six times, most recently three years ago. SAG typically goes 3-for-4 with Oscar,

‘The Muppet Christmas Carol’ Turns 25! Looking Back on Making the Holiday Classic
“All my friends have worked with the Muppets. Everybody I know has done a thing with the Muppets and I always felt a little bit left out,” Michael Caine told Et in 1992 on the set of The Muppet Christmas Carol, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. “But they only did half-hour television shows and I got to do a two-hour movie, so it's great.”

While Caine donned the trademark robes and night cap to portray Ebenezer Scrooge, the reimagining of the Charles Dickens classic also featured Kermit as Bob Cratchit, Fozzie as Mr. Fozziewig (modified from Fezziwig), Miss Piggy as Mrs. Cratchit and Gonzo as Dickens, who hilariously narrates the story with Rizzo the Rat. Despite the recognizable names and faces, some voices of the characters would sound a little different to Muppet fans.
