Supergirl (1984)

We’re told that the first live- action feature film super-heroine was the marvelous Helen Slater, whose fine presence redeems this last film in the Salkind Superman franchise. CineSavant likes it for the right reasons — his very young kids adored it — but can see its turnip screenwriting and frayed corners showing through. The release combines a 125-minute Blu-ray with an overstuffed 139-minute DVD.

Roseanne Barr Says She Was Fired by ABC Because She Voted for Trump: ‘That Is Not Allowed in Hollywood’

Roseanne Barr Says She Was Fired by ABC Because She Voted for Trump: ‘That Is Not Allowed in Hollywood’
After posting an erratic video defending the racist tweet that got her fired, Roseanne Barr now says the real reason she was dropped by ABC is that she voted for Donald Trump.

In a video uploaded to her YouTube channel on Friday, the former “Roseanne” star once again explained that she offered to publicly apologize for a tweet comparing former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett to “Planet of the Apes,” but ABC chose to distance itself from her and cancel the show instead.

“Why you ask? Well, the answer is simple,” Barr said. “It’s because I voted for Donald Trump, and that is not allowed in Hollywood.”

So much for that apology. In her first on-camera appearance since Roseanne‘s stunning cancellation, disgraced comedienne Roseanne Barr is once again addressing the racist tweet in which she referred to former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett as a combination of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes.

In the video, which is uploaded to Barr’s personal YouTube account, the frazzled-looking star smokes a cigarette as a man off camera attempts to dictate how she conducts herself. “Imagine a presidential address, like you’re busted for killing a hooker,” he says. “It’s the president [at] his desk in the Oval Office,

Roseanne Barr, following through on her pledge to bypass “stressful & untrustworthy” TV interviews, has posted a promised YouTube message to explain “what happened & why” with regard to her tweet about Valerie Jarrett – the one that compared the former Obama aide to a Planet of the Apes character and torpedoed Barr’s sitcom Roseanne. “I thought the bitch was white,” Barr screams at the top of her voice, directly into the camera, in this short video. “Goddammit!

Roseanne Barr Lashes Out While Explaining Valerie Jarrett Tweet: ‘I Thought the B*tch Was White’ — Watch
Roseanne Barr is back in the headlines after posting a video to her YouTube page in which she lashes out while attempting to explain her controversial Valerie Jarrett tweet. Barr is seen on camera smoking and talking to a producer behind the scenes and screams, “I thought the bitch was white! Goddammit. I thought the bitch was white. Fuck.”

Barr was fired from her ABC sitcom “Roseanne” on May 29 after posting a tweet in which she referred to former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett as a mix between the “Muslim Brotherhood” and the “Planet of the Apes.” The network quickly cancelled the comedian’s high-rated television show. The comedy will return next season rebranded as “The Connors” and without the involvement of Barr.

At the beginning of the month, Barr tweeted to her fans that she would be participating in a television interview to explain her side of the story in detail.

In late May, a tweet from Barr described Jarrett — who is of European and African-American descent — as if “Muslim brotherhood & Planet of the apes had a baby.” Barr initially blamed a series of her unhinged tweets on sleep-aid drug Ambien.

Update: Comcast withdraws bid for Fox assets paving the way for Disney’s takeover

Update: It has now been officially confirmed that Comcast has withdrawn its bid for 21st Century Fox, paving the way for The Walt Disney Company to complete its acquisition.

“We’re extremely pleased with today’s news, and our focus now is on completing the regulatory process and ultimately moving toward integrating our businesses,” states Disney CEO Bob Iger.

Original story follows…

It looks like the saga of the 21st Century Fox acquisition may be drawing to a close, as CNBC is reporting that Comcast is unlikely to increase its bid for Fox’s film and TV assets, leaving the door open for The Walt Disney Company to complete its takeover.

Disney agreed a deal to purchase Fox’s assets back in December, only for Comcast – the parent company of Universal Pictures – to come in with a higher offer in June. In response, Disney then upped its offer to $71.3 billion,

Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight’ Changed Movies, and the Oscars, Forever

Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight’ Changed Movies, and the Oscars, Forever
In late 2008, Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” — a zeitgeist-infused superhero sequel that would come to be widely regarded as the best in the genre — was on a crash-course with major Oscar recognition. Nominations from the producers, directors, and writers guilds, as well as a monster domestic box office haul north of $500 million, only firmed up expectations.

Then, “The Reader” happened. The Stephen Daldry drama, steeped in Oscar-friendly Holocaust trappings, was muscled into the race by Harvey Weinstein at a time when the now-disgraced mogul’s Miramax glory days were fast-becoming a distant memory, and the awards outlook for his newly formed Weinstein Co. was increasingly dim. (Movies like “Mrs Henderson Presents” and “Bobby” had failed to connect with voters.) “The Reader” nailed down nominations for best picture, director, and adapted screenplay, effectively boxing out Nolan’s critically acclaimed blockbuster in the top fields.

Abrams stepped into direct the final film in the new trilogy, which will follow “The Last Jedi” and is due out in 2019, after Colin Treverrow withdrew last September over creative differences with Lucasfilm. Treverrow had joined the project in 2015.

Roseanne Barr Teases TV Return: ‘I’ve Already Been Offered So Many Things’
Roseanne Barr told Rabbi Shmuley Boteach on his podcast over the weekend that she is considering a return to television and has already received several offers.

“Inside every bad thing is a good thing waiting to happen and I feel very excited because I’ve already been offered so many things and I almost already accepted one really good offer to go back on TV and I might do it. But we’ll see,” Barr said.

After a successful season leading broadcast television’s number 1 show, Barr was fired from the reboot of her popular sitcom after an Ambien-fueled attack on Twitter against former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.

‘Roseanne’ Lives: ABC Orders 10 Episodes of ‘The Conners’ Spinoff With All The Cast — Except Roseanne — Returning

  • Indiewire
ABC just made sure its “Roseanne” cancellation will be a dominant narrative for the network heading into fall. After taking decisive action last month to cancel the show — following a racist Twitter post written by star Roseanne Barr — the network is now revisiting the series, sans its star.

“The Conners” has been given a 10-episode, straight-to-series order by ABC to premiere this fall. Billed as a spinoff of “Roseanne,” the show will feature John Goodman (‘Dan’), Laurie Metcalf (‘Jackie’), Sara Gilbert (‘Darlene’), Lecy Goranson (‘Becky’) and Michael Fishman (‘D.J.’), all back in their same “Roseanne” roles. Other cast members — including whether any of last spring’s revival newcomers return — will be announced later.

ABC was able to make the deal work after “Roseanne” executive producer Tom Werner and Barr sealed a deal, allowing him to produce a spinoff through his Werner Entertainment label without Barr’s further creative or financial participation.

Disney Buying Fox Is About More Than X-Men

  • Cinelinx
There was a battle raging on between Disney and Comcast, both of whom were trying to flex enough to purchase Fox. There are many loopholes being jumped through for each company to simply make a proper bid, but this is a rather big deal in many ways for all of consumers and both companies. Many fans are giddy that Disney buying Fox means the X-Men can join the McU, but, Marvel brand aside, that isn’t what this purchase is entirely about. Now that Disney has finally purchased Fox (unless some miracle happens that denies their bid), what can we look forward to?

Let’s take a look at some of the history/numbers behind just the X-Men rights. The deal originated back in 1993 where Fox only had to pay 2.3 million dollars for the rights to the entire mutant catalogue. Since then, Marvel/Disney have been paid under 100 million dollars in licensing.
