Paloma Baeza to Direct “The Toymaker’s Secret” for TriStar Pictures

Baeza: BAFTA/YouTube

Paloma Baeza is set to make her feature directorial debut. The BAFTA winner will helm fantasy story “The Toymaker’s Secret” for TriStar Pictures. Variety broke the news.

A combination of live-action and animation, the pic centers on an American family who moves to London and fears their old Victorian house may be haunted.

The spec comes from “Annihilation” and “Ex Machina” writer-director Alex Garland, Baeza’s husband. “Several other suitors” were interested in the project before TriStar locked it down, according to the source. Unlike Garland’s other credits, which could be classified as dark sci-fi, this new project is family-friendly. According to The Hollywood Reporter, its “whimsical tone” is comparable to “The Princess Bride.”

“‘The Toymaker’s Secret’ is an original movie with such heart and humor and magic that it is sure to become an instant classic for the whole family,” said Hannah Minghella,

This Is Why You Recognize the Young Actress in I, Tonya

  • BuzzSugar
Excitement has been building for I, Tonya, the true (and unsettling) story of Olympians Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan. Margot Robbie plays Harding, and you'll recognize some other faces like Allison Janney as Tonya's mother and Sebastian Stan as Jeff Gillooly. A light bulb may also go off when you see the girl who plays young Tonya Harding, Mckenna Grace. Though she's only 11 years old, she has quite the résumé! Grace spent years on the kids' show Crash & Bernstein, beginning in 2012. But her first big-name show was The Young and the Restless, where she appeared in more than 50 episodes starting in 2013. RelatedI, Tonya: Here's the Reason Nancy Kerrigan Is So Damn Familiar In 2014, Grace appeared on an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

Peaky Blinders Series 4 Episode 4 Review – ‘Dangerous’

Liam Hoofe reviews the fourth episode of Peaky Blinders series 4…

As jam-packed hours of television go, you are going to struggle to find anything more exhilarating than Peaky Blinders right now. This week’s episode wasted no time moving forward and with only two episodes of the show left, things are only going to get more exciting in the coming weeks.

What Peaky Blinders does so exceptionally well is keep all of its plates spinning at full speed. This week’s episode felt like the most action-packed yet, with all of the show’s key narratives given screen time. The biggest story in the show is obviously the Mafia’s quest to take out the Shelby family, and after last week’s surprise twist which saw Polly make a deal with Adrien Brody’s Changretta, this week it looked as though that wasn’t quite what it seems. In fact,

Las Vegas Shooting Survivor Reportedly Killed in Hit-and-Run: ‘He Doesn’t Deserve That,’ Says Wife

Las Vegas Shooting Survivor Reportedly Killed in Hit-and-Run: ‘He Doesn’t Deserve That,’ Says Wife
A man who survived last month’s Las Vegas concert shooting that killed 58 people has reportedly died in a hit-and-run.

Roy McClellan’s widow, Denise, told Ksnv that her husband was killed while hitchhiking on Nov. 17. He was hit by a car in Pahrump, about 60 miles west of Las Vegas.

“I’m angry. I’m angry. I feel that he was under the influence of something or drunk and didn’t want to get caught, so he bailed and left my husband laying there in the street,” Denise said. “He doesn’t deserve that.”

A New Chapter: Crowdfunding Picks

Freelancers Anonymous

As you reach the end of a chapter in your life, the idea of confronting what’s next can be daunting, but the opportunity to start a new chapter can often be refreshing and meaningful. This month’s crowdfunding picks focus on identifying next steps — whether they are diving headfirst into app development, going after a dangerous cyberbully, or returning to your storm-ravaged home for the first time in years.

In “Freelancers Anonymous,” we meet a ragtag group of unemployed women in tech who are determined to work together to build an app to connect freelancers to jobs. They are led by Billie, who’s just hastily quit her own job to look for a fresh start before she gets married.

Season 2 of “The F Word: A Foster-to-Adopt Story” picks up with creators (and moms) Nicole and Kristan, who last season adopted their son out of the foster care system.

‘Thor: Ragnorak’ Review: Taika Waititi Brings Unabashed Silliness to the McU

The McU is a hive mind. That is, a majority of its entries can come off as flavorless exercises in staying “on brand” at the expense of identity and aesthetic. The desire to assimilate each film into the broader strokes of Kevin Feige’s ongoing theatrical TV show results in risk aversion and a lack of narrative identity — hell, I don’t even know what a “Russo Brothers film” looks like. These are press releases stretched to over two hours, and disguised as movies.

Few directors’ ambitions have survived the churning machine of the studio’s world-building. They fizzle out, get sacrificed at the altar of the McU’s greater connective tissue, or arrive with promise but no follow through. In this landscape, it’s rare to get the kind of unabashed silliness Taika Waititi delivers with Thor: Ragnarok. Joe Johnston infused Captain America with Old Hollywood sentiment. Shane Black

10 Actors to Watch: Daveed Diggs Makes Feature Debut With ‘Wonder’
Daveed Diggs is one of Variety‘s 10 Actors to Watch for 2017. For the full list, click here.

Anyone lucky enough to land a ticket to the Broadway smash “Hamilton” can vouch for Diggs’ star power; his dual roles of Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson won the rapper-actor a Tony Award and spawned countless Internet memes. It wasn’t long before Hollywood came calling and now the 35-year-old Oakland native has one of the busiest slates in the industry. “Everything in my life is a scheduling nightmare at this point,” says Diggs with a laugh, but he’s not complaining.

After wrapping his run in Hamilton in July 2016, Diggs notes, “I didn’t get a day off for almost two months after I left the show.” First, he flew to the Vancouver set of “Wonder,” the film adaptation of the R.J.

Poltergeist (1982) Midnights at The Tivoli This Weekend

“This house is clean.”

Poltergeist (1982) plays midnights this weekend (October 6th and 7th) at the Tivoli as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series. Tickets are $8.

Poltergeist had all the hallmarks of the Spielberg blockbuster production – a small-town suburban family setting, fantastic special effects, fast-paced action and a liberal smattering of Spielberg’s own brand of natural humor. Rumors have persisted for decades that he wrested the direction away from credited director Tobe Hooper, but the influence and style of Hooper are also evident and, rather than detracting from the considerable input of Spielberg, they complement it in a way which results in a movie of subtle originality.

Poltergeist is fun, extremely well-made, and is packed full of terrific scares. It took the opposite approach from normal; there’s no big old spooky house or gruesome back-story of some patriarch walling people up in the tower. By contrast,
