‘Sharp Objects’: Marti Noxon Reveals Difficulties With Jean-Marc Vallée Led to ‘Toe-to-Toe Screaming Matches’
Sharp Objects” is HBO’s big limited series event of the summer, but getting the project from page to screen wasn’t without its challenges. The series is created by “To The Bone” director Marti Noxon and based on Gillian Flynn’s 2006 debut novel. Noxon revealed in a candid interview with Vulture that “screaming matches” took place during production between herself and Jean-Marc Vallée, the Emmy-winning director of “Big Little Lies” who helmed all eight episodes of “Sharp Objects.”

“It was difficult, I’m not going to lie,” Noxon replied when asked what it was like working with Vallée, whose film credits include “The Young Victoria” and “Wild.” “I find that many artists are incredibly…what’s the right word? Incredibly sensitive. And it wasn’t without its toe-to-toe screaming matches. [Laughs.]”

Noxon explained she clashed with Vallée “over the nuance of language because Jean-Marc is from Montreal and he doesn

All 40 Movies and TV Shows Leaving Netflix in June

  • Popsugar
It's that time again! After saying goodbye to our favorite childhood Disney movies in May, Netflix is getting rid of even more classics next month. Not only are romantic comedies like 50 First Dates and While You Were Sleeping going away, but Marvel's Captain America: Civil War is also leaving this June. It's pretty obvious that the people at Disney are prepping for the release of their very own streaming service in Fall 2019, so it's only a matter of time before Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 are taken off the streaming service. In the meantime, we suggest setting aside a weekend to watch the films below before they're gone for good.

Emily Blunt movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Devil Wears Prada,’ ‘Sicario,’ ‘Into the Woods’
2018 is promising to be quite a year for Emily Blunt. The British actress has received some of the best reviews of her career for the film “A Quiet Place,” which is directed by and co-stars her real-life husband John Krasinski (“The Office”). As a pregnant wife who helps to lead her family to safety by trying to outwit alien creatures by not making a sound, Blunt offers a nearly silent performance with acting registering mostly with her face, a bold move that could result in awards attention later in the year.

2018 Oscar predictions: ‘Phantom Thread’ has Best Costume Design all sewn up

2018 Oscar predictions: ‘Phantom Thread’ has Best Costume Design all sewn up
Go ahead and stitch engrave the Best Costume Design Oscar for “Phantom Thread” now. Paul Thomas Anderson’s sartorial drama is the 2/9-odd favorite to take home the award, according to our latest predictions. It’s out front against “Beauty and the Beast” (15/2 odds), “The Shape of Water” (25/1 odds), “Darkest Hour” (66/1 odds) and Victoria and Abdul (66/1 odds).

If “Phantom Thread” were to only convert one of its six nominations into a win, it makes complete sense it’d be this one. The movie is about a persnickety high-end fashion designer in 1950s London and it’s filled frame to frame with Reynolds Woodcock’s (Daniel Day-Lewis) breathtakingly posh, gorgeous gowns, created Oscar winner Mark Bridges (2011’s “The Artist”). The House of Woodcock could rival any real-life fashion empire.

But not everyone thinks it’s a done deal for “Phantom Thread.” Expert

‘Wonderstruck’: How Costume Design Superstar Sandy Powell Boosted Todd Haynes’ Cinematic Tour de Force

‘Wonderstruck’: How Costume Design Superstar Sandy Powell Boosted Todd Haynes’ Cinematic Tour de Force
After working on “Hugo” (based on Brian Selznick’s illustrated novel, “The Invention of Hugo Cabret”), costume designer Sandy Powell became the first champion of his follow-up, “Wonderstruck.” In fact, Powell was so taken with his parallel adventures of two deaf children in 1927 and 1977 New York, that she encouraged him to write a screenplay and then gave it to Todd Haynes, who read it and agreed to direct.

“I thought it would make a wonderful movie, and, after Brian finished the script, I joked that I would have to produce it,” said the three-time Oscar-winning Powell (“The Young Victoria,” “The Aviator,” and “Shakespeare in Love”).

“I immediately thought of Todd. He’s so visual and he takes risks, and I was interested in his take on younger people driving the story,” added Powell, who previously worked with the director on “Carol,” “Far From Heaven,” and “Velvet Goldmine.”
