Press Release: For many, Christmas is an annual celebration of goodwill and joy, but for others, it’s a time to curl up on the couch in the dead of winter for a good old-fashioned fright. The festive holiday season has always included a more somber side, and scary tales of child-stealing demons to ghost stories told ‘round the fireplace go back to pre-Christian celebrations. These long-standing traditions have found modern expression in the Christmas horror film, a unique

Godless: This Actor Is Almost Unrecognizable as the Villain

  • BuzzSugar
Netflix released a new miniseries on Nov. 22 titled Godless, a Western hearkening back to the days of classics like The Searchers, Bad Day at Black Rock, and Shane. Like any good Western, it has a terrifying bad guy at its center. In the case of Godless, that man is Frank Griffin, an outlaw laying waste to the countryside as he tracks down his son-like partner who left Griffin's gang when he could no longer abide their brutal behavior. If Griffin looks familiar, that's because he definitely is - but Jeff Daniels is almost unrecognizable in the role. RelatedJeff Daniels Just Pulled Double Duty as 2 of His Most Famous Characters First of all, Daniels doesn't often sport such wild hair choices. But in Godless, it is 1884 and outlaws definitely did not have time to be well-groomed, what with all that killing and robbing and stuff. The shaggy hair and bushy beard are historically on point.

John Stamos Pays Tribute to 'Dearest, Most Inspiring' Friend Who Died

John Stamos Pays Tribute to 'Dearest, Most Inspiring' Friend Who Died
John Stamos mourns the death of his longtime friend, Paula Haynes.

The Full House star took to Facebook on Friday to share a lengthy post about his "dearest, most important and most inspiring friends" who died the day before.

"I told an associate of mine that one of my dearest, most important and most inspiring friends had passed away yesterday. And he said, 'So sorry, life can be crappy,'" Stamos wrote alongside two pictures of the two of them. "But life wasn’t crappy to the person I called 'Girlfriend' and who called me 'Boyfriend' - Paula Haynes. Miss Paula Haynes, I also called her. Sure, she was dealt a tough hand at birth -- but in life, she made the very most of that hand and lived more than most of us. We met over 30 years ago - June, 1986. (I know this cause she’d remind me every year)."

The 54-year-old actor posted a touching eulogy on Facebooks, calling Haynes “one of my dearest, most important and most inspiring friends” and “one of my favorite people ever.”

Haynes, who had disabilities, may have “dealt a tough hand at birth,” Stamos said, but in life, “she made the very most of that hand and lived more than most of us.”

“We met over 30 years ago — June, 1986,” Stamos wrote, joking that Haynes would remind him of that fact every year. “I met her through The Beach Boys,

Will New Oscar Voters Be Bold Enough to Embrace Popular Films?

Will New Oscar Voters Be Bold Enough to Embrace Popular Films?
Everyone is curious about how Oscar voting will be affected by the Academy’s new members, with 1,700 individuals (or 23%) invited in the past three years.

For me, there’s only one important issue: Do they like popular movies?

Careful, this is a trick question, because “popular” is hard to define, especially when it comes to Oscar.

This year, worldwide box office was led by “Beauty and the Beast,” which earned $1.2 billion. The global top 20 also includes awards possibilities like “Logan,” “Dunkirk” and “Wonder Woman.” There are other 2017 films that make you feel better at the end than you did at the start, including “The Big Sick,” “The Disaster Artist,” “Downsizing,” “Call Me by Your Name” and “Get Out.”

But what are their Oscar chances? In the past 15 years, Oscar voters have leaned toward dark material.

For most of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ 90 years, popular films got regular Oscar attention. Among the many

‘Suburbicon’ Review

Stars: Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Noah Jupe, Oscar Isaac, Gary Basaraba | Written by Joel Coen, Ethan Coen, George Clooney, Grant Heslov | Directed by George Clooney

Legend has it that the Coen Brothers penned this dark satire back in the 1980s, around the time of Blood Simple. So it’s interesting the extent to which Suburbicon feels like a product of our time – that is, a reflection of Us anxieties about race, immigration and social cohesion.

The film’s title refers to a fictional, yet depressingly plausible, 1950s experiment: a 60,000-strong utopian community comprised purely of white people, content and complacent behind a bulwark of quaint picket fences. (The faux promo which opens the film is like something out of a Fallout game.) We join the story at the moment when the first African-American family, the Myers, moves into the neighbourhood.

Suburbicon rapidly descends into criminality. But it’s nothing to do with the Myers.

Catch-22 series in the works from George Clooney

Kayti Burt Kirsten Howard Nov 17, 2017

A six-episode series based on the 1961 novel Catch-22 will mark George Clooney's return to television...

George Clooney is returning to television. The former E.R. star will be directing and starring in a limited series based on Joseph Keller's satirical World War II novel Catch-22.

It's a joint venture of Paramount Television and Anonymous (who also collaborated on 13 Reasons Why and Berlin Station), but the project does not have a network yet. THR reports the series will be shopped to prospective outlets in December.

Catch-22, considered one of the most influential books of the 20th century, follows the exploits of Captain John Yossarian, a U.S. Army Air Forse B-25 bombardier, and his fellow airmen as they struggle to maintain their

George Clooney On Stepping Back from Acting: ‘I’m Not the Guy That Gets the Girl Anymore’
George Clooney hasn’t acted in a film since 2016, and in a interview with The Sunday Times, the 56-year-old actor admitted that it isn’t a priority for him anymore — because he doesn’t need the money.

“Look, I acted for a long time and, you know, I’m 56. I’m not the guy that gets the girl anymore,” he said, before adding that at least he “shouldn’t be the guy that gets the girl.”

The father of two continued, “But, look, if somebody’s got Paul Newman in The Verdict, I’d jump. But there aren’t that many like that.

“Suburbicon” is One of Paramount’s Biggest Flops of All Time

There are a number of people dancing on the grave of the failed George Clooney produced movie Suburbicon. But everyone deserves a decent burial, so we will look at the underlying reasons the movie was an epic fail by movie and economic standards. First the basics. The movie cost roughly $35 million to produce and distribute while taking in less than $3 million in box office receipts in its opening week. It opened in more than 2,000 theaters. That’s not an insignificant loss for its distributor, Paramount. Director Clooney has done 5 previous films, including Good Night, and Good Luck,

'She's a Child': Stranger Things Fans React to a 'Sexy Eleven' Halloween Costume That's for Sale

George Clooney’s “Suburbicon” Goes for Dark Laughs with Faint Success

Ah, awards season; are we back at that special time of year already? As 2017 starts to wrap up, the major studios are getting their prestige titles prepped and ready to go, hoping to lure in both strong box office and, more importantly, critical/awards recognition. But there’s always a few titles that fall below expectations. And then there are the titles that really fall below expectations. One that’s already hit that point is Suburbicon – directed by George Clooney, primarily written by the Coen Brothers and starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore and Oscar Isaac – and its disappointments are especially staggering. But what is it in this specific film that betrays such a sharp concept?

As a colorful film strip, featuring one of composer Alexandre Desplat’s manipulatively playful contributions that further establishes him as one of music’s best living composers, that opens the film declares, the titular Suburbicon,

‘Suburbicon’ Review: George Clooney Overplays His Hand With Grotesque ’50s Noir

‘Suburbicon’ Review: George Clooney Overplays His Hand With Grotesque ’50s Noir
Like those talented pop singers who keep making valiant stabs at being actors — and vice versa — George Clooney can’t seem to stay away from the director’s chair. His filmmaking career started promisingly enough with “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” (helped greatly by its Charlie Kaufman screenplay), but since then it’s been a parade of adequacies (“Good Night, and Good Luck,” “The Ides of March”), mediocrity (“Leatherheads”) and downright catastrophe (“The Monuments Men”). Clooney’s directorial legacy won’t get any help from “Suburbicon,” a garish and overblown crime melodrama that combines clumsy noir with lame jabs at 1950s suburban conformity.

Ray Donovan Ep Talks Season 6 Move to NYC, Reflects on Polarizing Abby Arc: 'I Live With the Consequences'
Ray Donovan closes out Season 5 this Sunday (9/8c, Showtime) and one of the finale’s biggest spoilers is already out there: Liev Schreiber’s titular fixer is putting down permanent stakes in the Big Apple. Although it’s unclear what — or who — puts Ray in a permanent New York state of mind (something to do with daughter Bridget, perhaps?), it’s safe to assume something drastic and game change-y occurs in the episode.

During a recent Q&A with TVLine, executive producer/showrunner David Hollander shed light on the decision to flee Hollywood for NYC in the just-ordered Season 6, previewed Sunday’s Season 5 finale,

Jackie Hoffman Jokingly Screams ‘Damn It,’ Slams Laura Dern After Emmy Loss
Jackie Hoffman didn’t take home an Emmy during Sunday night’s 69th awards show, but her reaction to losing stirred up some attention of its own.

When Laura Dern’s name was announced for supporting actress in a drama, Hoffman, nominated for her role as Mamacita, Joan Crawford’s loyal maid in “Feud: Bette and Joan,” was seen yelling “Damn it, damn it” and hitting the chair in front of her.
