‘Green Hornet’ Becomes an Independent Superhero as Amasia Entertainment Grabs Franchise Rights

In a superhero-dominated film culture ruled by Marvel and DC, one company is banking on an old, familiar name to shake up the duopoly. Indie film/TV production company Amasia Entertainment announced Wednesday that it secured motion picture rights to classic character The Green Hornet.

First created in 1938 by George W Trendle and later a staple in radio serials, the character spawned multiple big-screen adaptations in the early ’40s before surfacing as a cult hit TV series. Airing just one season from 1966-67, “The Green Hornet” starred Van Williams as Britt Reid, the newspaper publisher who by night fought crime as the masked vigilante that gave the show its title. In one of his early American roles, Bruce Lee played the role of Kato, Britt’s trusted partner.

Amasia, which was co-founded in 2012 by former Marvel executive Michael Helfant and former CNN reporter Bradley Gallo, acquired the rights to “The Green Hornet

Renée Zellweger is SAG's Favorite Film Actress

by Murtada Elfadl

Last night's win by Renée Zellweger for her performance in Judy marks her third individual SAG award. She has won previously for Chicago (2002) and Cold Mountain (2003). On the film side she matches Daniel Day Lewis as the two most lauded actors by the Screen Actors Guild. Day Lewis won his awards for Gangs of New York (2002), There Will Be Blood (2007) and Lincoln (2012).

There are five other actresses who are right behind Zellweger with two individual film awards. And none of them are called Meryl Streep. Steeep has two as well though one is for TV. She won for Doubt (2008) and Angels in America (2003). These are the actresses who could match or leapfrog Zellweger soon...

Yikes! ‘Bombshell,’ uh, bombed at the SAG Awards, becoming the unlucky 7th film to go 0-4

Yikes! ‘Bombshell,’ uh, bombed at the SAG Awards, becoming the unlucky 7th film to go 0-4
“Bombshell,” well, bombed at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. Though the film surprised with four nominations last month, it went home empty-handed on Sunday and is now the seventh film to go 0-4.

The first six are “The English Patient” (1996), “The Hours” (2002), “Brokeback Mountain” (2005), “Into the Wild” (2007), “Manchester by the Sea” (2016) and last year’s “A Star Is Born” (2018). Like “Bombshell,” all of them had ensemble bids and three individual nominations.

No film has suffered more losses; three, “Shakespeare in Love” (1998), “Chicago” (2002) and “Doubt” (2008), received five nominations, but they all won at least one.

Bombshell” wasn’t predicted to win any of its categories in our odds, so this shutout is not entirely out of the blue. “Parasite” won ensemble, Renee Zellweger (“Judy”) beat Charlize Theron in lead actress, and Laura Dern (“Marriage Story”) bested “Bombshell” supporting players Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman.

Will ‘Bombshell’ suffer the same SAG Awards fate that ‘A Star Is Born’ did?
Bombshell” had a great Screen Actors Guild Awards nomination morning, surprising with four bids, but it may not have a very good SAG Awards night. The Fox News drama is not expected to win any of its four nominations, which would make it the seventh film to go 0-4.

The six films to get quadruple-blanked are “The English Patient” (1996), “The Hours” (2002), “Brokeback Mountain” (2005), “Into the Wild” (2007), “Manchester by the Sea” (2016) and last year’s “A Star Is Born” (2018). Like “Bombshell,” all of them had ensemble bids and three individual nominations. No film has suffered more losses; three, “Shakespeare in Love” (1998), “Chicago” (2002) and “Doubt” (2008), got five nominations, but they all won at least one.

Bombshell” is currently in fourth place in our ensemble odds, behind three major Best Picture Oscar contenders “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” “Parasite” and “The Irishman,” and ahead of “Jojo Rabbit.” Supporting actress nominees Margot Robbie

‘Marriage Story’ is the first Golden Globe nomination leader to miss Best Director in 11 years

‘Marriage Story’ is the first Golden Globe nomination leader to miss Best Director in 11 years
The good news or “Marriage Story”: It led Golden Globe nominations Monday with six. The bad news: Noah Baumbach was snubbed in Best Director, making the Netflix drama the first film since “Doubt” (2008) to top the nomination leaderboard without a directing bid.

While “Marriage Story” made the Best Drama Picture cut, “Doubt” missed the Best Drama Picture lineup back then, with four of its five nominations coming for its actors and the fifth for John Patrick Shanley‘s screenplay. And unlike “Marriage Story,” it wasn’t the sole nomination leader at the Globes; “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and “Frost/Nixon” garnered five bids each as well.

See Here’s the full list of Golden Globe nominations

Baumbach, who was nominated in screenplay, was in fifth place in our Best Director odds, but the Hollywood Foreign Press Association opted to go with Bong Joon Ho (“Parasite”), Todd Phillips (“Joker”), who was in ninth place,

‘Popes’ High Hopes: Oscar Eyes Rare Trip to the Vatican

‘Popes’ High Hopes: Oscar Eyes Rare Trip to the Vatican
In 91 years, no one has ever been Oscar-nominated for playing a pope. That could change this year if Jonathan Pryce (lead actor) and Anthony Hopkins (supporting) are recognized for the crowd-pleasing “The Two Popes,” as, respectively, Pope Francis and Pope Benedict XVI.

The film depicts their mutual wariness, which turns into friendship. And thanks to director Fernando Meirelles and writer Anthony McCarten, it also packs a punch in dealing with the men’s very different socio-political backgrounds.

The Two Popes” sounds like a TV movie that would be shown on cable every Easter. In fact, Italian TV has done a bevy of papal biopics over the years, and America has had a hand in several, including Jon Voight (!) in the 2005 “Pope John Paul II” miniseries.

But Vatican City has rarely appeared on the big screen. “The Agony and the Ecstasy” (1965) and “The Shoes of the Fisherman” (1968) were both intended as

‘The Voice’ Top 10: Season 17 artists ranked from best to worst by viewers
We’re just three weeks away from the season 17 finale of “The Voice.” The Top 10 take to the stage on Monday’s show to sing for survival. Only eight of them will make the cut when Carson Daly reveals the results on Tuesday’s episode. This is one of the most competitive editions ever of this NBC reality competition series.

Three artists are fighting it out for first place in our poll of “The Voice” viewers. In first place is Ricky Duran, who has a whopping 22% of the vote total. If he goes all the way and takes the season 17 title, it would give his coach Blake Shelton that elusive seventh win. Right behind him at 20% is Katie Kadan, who is coached by reigning champ John Legend. Rounding out the top 3 with 16% support is Rose Short, who is mentored by Gwen Stefani.

This No Doubt lead singer lost her previous three seasons as a coach.

Tiff 2019: Meryl Streep and Joaquin Phoenix, Paying Tribute to Late Brother River, Launch Oscar Bids

September’s Toronto International Film Festival has long been a launching pad for Oscar contenders, and its coveted People’s Choice award often presages the Best Picture Oscar winner. “Green Book” last year was no exception.

So it was inevitable that Tiff would jump-start the awards season with its own Awards Gala. This year’s first installment gave out two acting awards, to Joaquin Phoenix, star of DC’s “Batman” spin-off “Joker”, which surprisingly won the Golden Lion in Venice, and Oscar perennial Meryl Streep (21 nominations). Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas, Her costars in Steven Soderbergh’s “The Laundromat”, came onstage to remind us that Streep breaks the record for the most nominations of all time every time she gets a nod — because it’s a record she set herself.

The Streep sizzle reel stretched back to “Kramer vs. Kramer,” through “Sophie’s Choice,” “Silkwood,” “Bridges of Madison County,” “The Devil Wears Prada,
