SAG Awards 2018: Will ‘Three Billboards’ or ‘Lady Bird’ tie the record for the most wins?

SAG Awards 2018: Will ‘Three Billboards’ or ‘Lady Bird’ tie the record for the most wins?
“Lady Bird” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” are the only films nominated in three categories at this weekend’s SAG Awards, so they’re the only films with a chance to join an exclusive club. If one of them wins all three categories, it would be only the fourth film to do so and could also give it a boost as it competes for Best Picture at the Oscars.

The Screen Actors Guild first began handing out awards in 1995 but did not give out the prize for ensemble casts until the following year when “Apollo 13” was the inaugural winner. To date no film has come close to sweeping all six of the film categories: for ensembles and stunt ensembles, lead and supporting actors, and lead and supporting actresses. Currently the record for the most wins is three, held by “American Beauty” (awarded in 2000), “Chicago” (2003), and “The Help” (2012). All

From Sam Rockwell to Patrick Stewart: Ranking Contenders for Best Supporting Actor Oscar

From Sam Rockwell to Patrick Stewart: Ranking Contenders for Best Supporting Actor Oscar
There’s more than a few good men lining up for Supporting Actor recognition at this year’s Oscars, and they all won’t make the cut. Here’s a roundup of who’s likely to land a nomination slot, as well as a few worthy dark-horse contenders.

Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson

From Venice to Toronto to the Hollywood Foreign Press, “Three Billboards from Ebbing, Missouri” has been wowing audiences and critics. Actually, if the Screen Actors Guild is any indication, the Ozark-set dramedy may score three acting Oscar contenders — Golden Globe winners Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell, as well as Woody Harrelson. It’s a rare sign of strength.

The veteran character actors starred together in McDonagh’s raucous comedy “Seven Psychopaths.” This time out, uncharacteristically, two-time Oscar nominee Harrelson (“The People vs. Larry Flynt,” “The Messenger”) is the straight man of the piece as empathetic cancer-ridden Sheriff Willoughby,

Woody Harrelson in talks to join Venom alongside Tom Hardy

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Zehra Phelan

Word on the street has Woody Harrelson currently in talks to join Tom Hardy in Sony Pictures forthcoming Spider-Man spin-off, Venom.

Related: Venom News

As with previous casting announcements, Sony has been keeping a very tight lip, but Harrelson could well be placed in the role as some sort of henchman – we’re thinking maybe something along the lines of his character Colonel in this year’s War for the Planet of the Apes.

Ruben Fleischer is directing the comic-book outing which could see Harrelson join Hardy, Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams and Jenny Slate on the cast.

Scott Rosenberg (“Jumanji”) and Jeff Pinkner (“The Dark Tower”) have written the script for “Venom,” with Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach producing the movie, along with Amy Pascal. Palak Patel are overseeing the project for Columbia Pictures.

Although Venom is intrinsically linked with Spider-Man, the neighbourhood boy hero will in

Venom Eyes Woody Harrelson for Henchman Role

Venom Eyes Woody Harrelson for Henchman Role
Although Sony Pictures' Venom already in production, with filming starting in late October, it's never too late to add a new cast member. A new report surfaced today which revealed that Woody Harrelson is in talks to sign on, reportedly to play "a henchman of sorts," although there is no indication that this character has roots in the Marvel Comics, and it remains unclear when we'll find out more about this character. It also remains unclear how many more roles need to be filled out as production keeps rolling.

This report comes just a few days after Tom Hardy confirmed Venom is based on Lethal Protector comics, with the actor adding that this character will be very important for the Marvel Universe, during an appearance at Brazil's Comic-Con Experience last weekend. The actor wouldn't clarify what he meant by "Marvel Universe," if he meant the Spider-Man universe Sony is creating,

Woody Harrelson in Talks to Join Tom Hardy in ‘Venom’
Woody Harrelson has joined Tom Hardy in Sony’s “Venom” movie.

Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, and Jenny Slate are also on board, with Ruben Fleischer directing.

Although character details are sparse, sources say Harrelson will play a henchman of sorts. Sony had no comment on the casting.

Scott Rosenberg (“Jumanji”) and Jeff Pinkner (“The Dark Tower”) will write the script for “Venom,” with Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach producing the movie, along with Amy Pascal. Palak Patel and Eric Fineman are overseeing the project for Columbia Pictures.

Since his inception in 1988, Venom has been one of “Spider-Man’s” most popular characters, making it a top priority for the studio to get the movie off the ground. Venom made his big-screen debut in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man 3,” where he was portrayed by Topher Grace.

Throughout the history of Marvel Comics, Venom has appeared alongside Spider-Man, Iron Man, Deadpool, Hulk, and other major characters.

Power Women Go Head-to-Head in Lead Actress Oscar Race

Power Women Go Head-to-Head in Lead Actress Oscar Race
The roles in the lead actress category run a wide range, from the precocious 6-year-old Brooklyn Prince in “The Florida Project” to 82-year-old Judi Dench playing the queen (again) in “Victoria & Abdul.” Other powerful women include previous nominees Jessica Chastain as a poker queen in “Molly’s Game,” Kate Winslet as a cheating wife in “Wonder Wheel” and Saoirse Ronan in the beloved coming-of-age tale “Lady Bird.” (At the age of 23, it’s interesting that Ronan could amost play the overdue card; she has two previous nominations and came close to winning with 2016’s “Brooklyn.”) They could battle previous winner Jennifer Lawrence; never underestimate the Academy love for her, even if “mother!” didn’t light up the box office. Other winners: Frances McDormand, delivering a fierce performance as a mother searching for justice in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and, of course, Meryl Streep.

October 2017 Box Office Returned to the Year's Downward Trend

October 2017 Box Office Returned to the Year's Downward Trend
After September delivered record numbers, the month of October saw the 2017 box office return to its downward trend, delivering calendar grosses down 15.6% compared to last year, falling below $600 million for the first time in ten years. Perhaps most startling is that with 287 films in release, the average per film was just $1.9 million, making it the first time that average has ever fallen below $2.1 million for any individual month based on BoxOfficeMojo's records going back to 1982. That being said, the Fall movie season has since come to an end and overall the season showed a ~6% improvement compared to last year thanks in large part to the record setting release of WB's It back in September, which became the first Fall release to ever gross over $300 million domestically. In fact, Warner Bros. had a strong Fall season overall, leading the charge in August, September and again in October despite the fact the
