Here’s how Regina King can still win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar

Here’s how Regina King can still win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar
As expected, Regina King won Best Supporting Actress for “If Beale Street Could Talk” at Sunday’s Critics’ Choice Awards, a week after taking home the Golden Globe. And just like that, her televised precursor run is done until the Oscars since she was snubbed by the Screen Actors Guild Awards and BAFTA. So will the Globe and Critics’ Choice Award be enough for her to go all the way? It’s been done before.

Since BAFTA moved its ceremony to before the Oscars 18 years ago, two people have won the Oscar with just the Globe and Critics’ Choice Award: Chris Cooper for Best Supporting Actor in “Adaptation” (2002) and Sean Penn for Best Actor in “Mystic River” (2003). Cooper lost the SAG and BAFTA to Christopher Walken (“Catch Me If You Can”), who was not nominated at the Globes or Critics’ Choice, the latter of which had three nominees back then.

Revisiting Hours: Ships Ahoy — ‘Master and Commander’

Every Friday, we’re recommending an older movie available to stream or download and worth seeing again through the lens of our current moment. We’re calling the series “Revisiting Hours” — consider this Rolling Stone’s unofficial film club. This week: Scott Tobias on Peter Weir’s seafaring epic Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World.

A lot of movie history’s most famous “what if” scenarios are simply not true: Ronald Reagan was never considered for the Humphrey Bogart role in Casablanca. Tom Selleck’s contractual obligations with Magnum P.

Disney to save $90 million after dropping Johnny Depp from next Pirates of the Caribbean movie

Back in October it was reported that Disney has decided to drop Johnny Depp from Pirates of the Caribbean, tapping Deadpool screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to work on a script for a reboot of the blockbuster action-adventure franchise.

The rumours were confirmed last month by Disney film production chief Sean Bailey, and now Forbes has posted an article which claims that Depp’s absence will save the Mouse House a whopping $90 million – presumably covering the actor’s upfront salary and backend.

The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise launched in 2003 with Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, which netted $654.3 million worldwide and saw Depp nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow.

Depp returned for sequels in 2006, 2007, 2011 and 2017, with all five movies grossing a combined $4.524 billion at the box office. The most recent instalment however – Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Disney Will Save $90 Million By Not Hiring Johnny Depp To Star In ‘Pirates’ Reboot

Disney Will Save $90 Million By Not Hiring Johnny Depp To Star In ‘Pirates’ Reboot
Yes, like it or not, audiences can expect a new film in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series. You can’t be surprised at the news, considering the franchise has earned more than $4.5 billion worldwide, over its five films. Even if the last one was a critical and commercial disappointment, Disney is just too business-savvy to leave money on the table. Therefore, it makes total sense why’d they want to reboot the series with “Deadpool” writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

'Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World': THR's 2003 Review

On Nov. 14, 2003, 20th Century Fox unveiled the naval epic Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World in theaters. The drama went on to be nominated for 10 Oscars at the 76th Academy Awards, winning for cinematography and sound editing. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below: 

With the Walt Disney Co.'s Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl having profitably tested the waters for the return of the high-seas adventure, the timing couldn't be better for the arrival of Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World.

Keira Knightley Has Only Seen ‘Love Actually’ Once, So Forgive Her for Not Knowing Which Guy Her Character Chooses

Keira Knightley Has Only Seen ‘Love Actually’ Once, So Forgive Her for Not Knowing Which Guy Her Character Chooses
Richard Curtis’ “Love Actually” is one of the most popular Christmas romance movies, but star Keira Knightley has only seen the film once since its theatrical release in November of 2003. The actress made the surprise revelation during a video interview with Wired, in which she also struggled to answer which guy her character ends up with at the end of the movie. During a game where Knightley had to answer questions from the most popular Google autofills that follow her name, the question arose: “Who does Keira Knightley end up with in ‘Love, Actually’?”

“I don’t remember, who do I end up with?,” Knightley whispers to her co-interviewee in the video, Mackenzie Foy (“Interstellar”). “I’m with my husband, aren’t I? Aren’t I with Chiwetel Ejiofor? I’ve only seen it once, and it was a really long time ago. So I don’t go off with Andrew Lincoln?

5 times Oscars and SAG Awards clashed on Best Actor: Denzel Washington, Adrien Brody, Casey Affleck …

  • Gold Derby
This year the Screen Actors Guild Awards celebrates its 25th anniversary, so we thought it’d be fun to look back at the past quarter-century to see how many times they disagreed with the Oscars when it came to honoring the year’s Best Actor. As it turns out, there are only a handful of differences as both organizations matched up 19 times out of 24 ceremonies. Scroll down to see the five times that the Oscars clashed with SAG.

Year: 2000

Oscar winner: Russell Crowe (“Gladiator”)

SAG winner: Benicio Del Toro (“Traffic”)

What happened: After winning the SAG Award for a leading performance, Oscar voters then decided to nominate Del Toro as a supporting actor. It’s rare for this kind of quirky category switcheroo to happen between awards shows, with Kate Winslet (“The Reader”) being another recent example.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ 2 and 3: In Defense of Gore Verbinski’s Gloriously Weird Sequels

When Disney released Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl in 2003, few thought the film would actually work. This was Orlando Bloom getting a shot at movie stardom after scene-stealing work as Legolas in Lord of the Rings by way of a pirate movie based on a theme park ride. Pirate movies, historically, had not fared well in quite some time, and the disaster of Cutthroat Island was still fresh in everyone’s minds. Plus, the film was anchored by actor Johnny Depp—far from a movie star at the time, known mainly for starring …

‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Reboot Being Explored by Disney With ‘Deadpool’ Writers

‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Reboot Being Explored by Disney With ‘Deadpool’ Writers
Disney is exploring a sixth iteration of its “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise and has met with the “Deadpool” writing team of Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick about the pic, a source tells Variety.

Disney has no comment and no deal is in place yet. The five previous “Pirates” movies hauled $1.5 billion domestically and $3.07 billion internationally, with the North American market representing a progressively smaller share. The domestic total for 2017’s “Dead Men Tell No Tales” hit $172 million, while foreign markets delivered $622 million.

All five films have grossed more than $650 million worldwide, with “Dead Man’s Chest” and “On Stranger Tides” both topping the $1 billion mark.

“Dead Men Tell No Tales” centered on Johnny Depp’s swashbuckling Jack Sparrow battling deadly ghost sailors, led by the Javier Bardem’s Captain Salazar. Kaya Scodelario and Brenton Thwaites joined the cast, with Orlando Bloom returning as Will Turner and Geoffrey Rush as Captain Hector Barbossa.

Disney Hated Johnny Depp’s Performance In Pirates Of The Caribbean At First

What a difference 15 years can make.

In 2003, Disney released Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, a mega blockbuster in which Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow stole the hearts of audiences worldwide. It’s long been known that during production of the movie, Disney executives were intensely worried about Depp’s performance, considering him a liability who might sink the entire film. Now, we know one of the major reasons they were so worried: they thought he was playing the character as gay.

Depp explained all in an interview with GQ recently, saying the following:

“Disney hated me. [They were] thinking of every way they could to get rid of me, to fire me. ‘Oh, we’re going to have to subtitle him.’ ‘We don’t understand Captain Jack Sparrow. What’s wrong with him?’ ‘What’s wrong with his arms?’ ‘Is he drunk?’ ‘Is he mentally fucking stupefied?

Gambit Will Be A Romantic Comedy, Shoots In Early 2019

No, your eyes do not deceive you; Fox’s long-gestating Gambit spinoff is finally starting to put the wheels into motion.

From what we understand, the Powers That Be want to fast-track Remy LeBeau’s origin story before the Disney-Fox merger is fully consummated next summer, by which point the House of Mouse – and, more specifically, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige – will take ownership of the X-Men and Fox’s band of merry mutants from 2019 onwards.

That would make Gambit the final film in the X-Universe to release before 20th Century Fox cedes control of its precious entertainment assets, and according to producer Simon Kinberg, they’re hoping to kick things off early next year. Following up on a report just the other week which told us as much, the Dark Phoenix director spoke to IGN recently and confirmed the following:

All 5 ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Movies Ranked, Worst to Best (Photos)

All 5 ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Movies Ranked, Worst to Best (Photos)
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies may be coming at a slow pace these days, but they still are coming. How does the Javier Bardem-starring fifth flick stack up among the other entries in the mixed-bag franchise?

5. “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

At some point, “from the Academy Award-winning director of ‘Chicago'” meant something. But Rob Marshall was woefully ill-suited to make a “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie, and that, combined with whoever’s terrible idea it was to have Jack Sparrow as the sole lead, spelled doom for this horrifically awful experience.

4. “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Pretty much just an attempt to rehash the original movie, though it’s less satisfying in every way. Not horrible, and it does have the decency to be the shortest of the five movies. But its incoherence undoes most of the goodwill granted by the occasional clever dialogue.

In Defense Of: “Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” (2006)

After 15 years, it’s almost too easy to forget that not many people were optimistic about the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl back in 2003. At best, it seemed as if it would coast by on curiosity around how Disney could turn one of their most beloved theme park rides into a full-blown film, and instead it surprised everyone by being an absolute blast.

It scratched an itch for the type of swashbuckling adventures that simply didn’t exist on the big screen anymore by then, fueled by a compelling story, fun action set pieces and a whole handful of great characters – the standout, of course, being Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow, a performance that famously worried and angered Disney executives during production only to prove them all wrong by immediately breaking into the pop culture zeitgeist.

Thanks to the surprise success of Black Pearl,

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.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Is a Reminder That Bad Buzz Doesn’t Always Mean It’s a Bad Movie

The moviegoing landscape is absolutely awash in “buzz.” Good buzz, bad buzz, Oscar buzz, career-ending buzz. It’s a beehive out there, and while the advent of the internet and social media has made the “Did you hear this?” conversation absolutely never-ending, the industry has pretty much never not been flooded with early word-of-mouth. Indeed, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl opened in theaters 15 years ago today, and the conversation surrounding Disney’s theme park adaptation was anything but hopeful. But the first Pirates of the Caribbean film also stands as …
