Lee Sizemore May Look Familiar, but You Probably Haven't Seen Him Outside Westworld

In case you missed it, the season two premiere of Westworld hit us with an unexpected full-frontal scene from handsome British actor Simon Quarterman. Granted, the nudity isn't a first for the series, but the scene is a turning point for his character, Lee Sizemore, and a metaphor for the shift in power that has taken place in the park.

"There's a few moving parts in the scene," said Quarterman to The Hollywood Reporter. "There's the shift in power, in those terms, especially in seeing this happen with one of Maeve's creators, someone who writes her storylines and has controlled her actions and her mind. Seeing her take her creator and stripping him naked . . . we're seeing that shift in power now. The hosts are now in control."

At the end of season one, Lee agrees to create a story narrative that would allow executive director Charlotte Hale to smuggle valuable

‘Jumanji’ Sequel Topples ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Insidious’ Box Office Rivals

  • Indiewire
In its third week, “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” (Sony) surged to the top spot at the New Year’s weekend box office, after pulling ahead of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” (Disney) for the full week that included New Year’s Day — so its dominant position this weekend was no surprise.

“Insidious: The Last Key”

Insidious: The Last Key” (Universal) performed well in the usual post-holiday horror film slot, though not at the high end for past performers.

In third place, “The Last Jedi” remains a major success, looking at a certain worldwide total of over $1.3 billion.

All these and more contributed to a first post-New Year weekend of 2018 that is some $25 million — or 16 per cent — better than the last year. It’s a robust start for the box office, which wound up the year above expectations, taking pressure off a mediocre 2017 performance.

The “Jumanji” success makes sense: the

Mother!, The Wicker Man, and All the Other Movies With "F" CinemaScores

  • BuzzSugar
Darren Aronofsky's mother!, with its lowercase title and exclamation point, was always going to push the envelope. The disturbingly vague trailer alone was hint enough that the Jennifer Lawrence-led film was not Hollywood's average horror entry. As a result, many of the scary movie fans who flocked to theaters left disappointed, confused, or a mixture of both. The backlash to the film has been so strong that Paramount actually released a statement defending Aronofsky's "audacious and brave" work. Unfortunately it wasn't enough to keep mother! from pulling in a shockingly bad "F" rating on poll-based website CinemaScore (the worst score that can be given by audiences). Mother! certainly isn't the first movie to land on CinemaScore's "F" list, but until now, the complete list had yet to be published. Vulture set out to discover the full list of titles by speaking to CinemaScore research analyst Harold Mintz. He

Darren Aronofsky Defends 'Mother!' After 'F' CinemaScore: It's 'a Punk Movie'

Darren Aronofsky Defends 'Mother!' After 'F' CinemaScore: It's 'a Punk Movie'
Darren Aronofsky has been talking a lot about the meaning behind his new film, Mother!, following harsh critical response and a weak opening weekend at the box office, and in a recent interview, he contended that the film was meant to provoke, not please.

"How, if you walk out of this movie, are you not going to give it an 'F'?" he said in an interview with radio host John Horn following a recent screening at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. "It's a punch. It's a total punch.

Movie Review – Watch Over Us (2017)

Watch Over Us, 2017.

Directed by F.C. Rabbath.

Starring Avery Kristen Pohl, Ella Schaefer, Daniel Link, Henry Tisdale, and Hudson Meeks.

Synopsis:

A father and his young daughters move onto their grandfather’s secluded farm following the breakup of their parents. But once there, they are soon plagued by paranormal events that reveal a deadly secret that has haunted the family for generations, and an evil force that demands they uphold a deadly promise made by their ancestors.

Supernatural horror films have become a genre of their own in their recent years, kickstarted by the phenomenal popularity of the Paranormal Activity franchise, which spawned countless imitators and led to studios putting out as many similarly-themed films as they could – The Devil Inside, Devil’s Due, The Bye Bye Man… the list is almost endless. We even got another entry into the Blair Witch series, which unfortunately failed to connect with audiences,

Darren Aronofsky's 'mother!' Banished to Infamous F CinemaScore Club

Darren Aronofsky's 'mother!' Banished to Infamous F CinemaScore Club
Paramount always knew that Darren Aronofsky's mother!, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem, would provoke strong responses, but the studio surely never imagined the elevated psychological horror-thriller would receive an F CinemaScore from U.S. moviegoers.

Only a dozen or so movies have been slapped with the failing grade in modern times. In most cases, those films, hobbled by poor word of mouth, were never able to bust out of detention and clear more than $15 million, if that, at the domestic box office. The most notable exception is fellow Paramount horror pic The Devil Inside (2012), which opened to $33.7...

Sierra/Affinity Goes Beyond Sales With Movies Like ‘Atomic Blonde’

Sierra/Affinity Goes Beyond Sales With Movies Like ‘Atomic Blonde’
Producing and financing films, rather than just taking a fee to sell them, has always been an important part of Sierra/Affinity’s blueprint since the company launched in 2009. Nevertheless, it took several years for the company’s ambitions beyond sales to be fully realized.

The company has produced and financed several titles over the past couple of years and is pushing hard in that direction. As company founder Nick Meyer, who is being honored at Cannes with Variety‘s Achievement in International Film Award, sees it, “a key part of our growth as a company is that we are a production entity.”

Set for release this July via Focus Features is “Atomic Blonde,” the graphic-novel adaptation starring Charlize Theron and James McAvoy. Recent titles also produced and financed by Sierra include the critically hailed “Lost City of Z” by director James Gray, 1960s melodrama “A Kind of Murder,” John Hillcoat
