Listen To An Exclusive Preview Of The ‘Mandy’ Soundtrack, Composer Jóhann Jóhannsson’s Final Work

I can’t lie and pretend to be the biggest film score nerd around, but I like to think I know a good score from a bad one. And while I might not know all the composers working today, I am very familiar with the work by the late, great Jóhann Jóhannsson. The composer, whose life was tragically cut short earlier this year, was the man behind the incredible scores of such films like “Prisoners,” “The Theory of Everything,” “Sicario,” “Arrival,” “Blade Runner 2049,” and the upcoming “Mandy.” Needless to say, the Golden Globe-winning and Oscar-nominated musician created a legacy that is hard to top.

Tues Top 10: Oscar's All Time Favorite Supporting Actresses

Let's discuss Oscar hiearchies. This one is ultra specific and could be argued that it doesn't exist since actors can be nominated in leading categories, too. But we love ultra niche rankings and trivial Oscar Trivia, and you do too! So who are Oscar's 10 favorite supporting actresses of all time? We'll work the ranking like so: Supporting nominations count most, and wins act like half a nomination to help determine rank. The tiebreaker is the spread of time of nominations which can denote either long term fandom on the Academy's part or more shortlived enthusiasms. If a final tiebreaker is still required (and it is in the case of the second place ranking on this list), that's the only time activity in the Leading Actress category is factored in. Ready?

Guy Pearce to replace Michael Sheen in Bloodshot movie

Having kicked off production this week, it looks like Sony’s Valiant comic book adaptation Bloodshot is making a quick casting change, with Variety reporting that Guy Pearce is in talks to replace Michael Sheen, who has been forced to drop out of the project due to scheduling conflicts.

Pearce will take on the role of Dr. Emil Harting, a genius who is responsible for developing nanotechnology that can no only repair the human body, but enhance it beyond normal limitations. Said technology is used on the titular Bloodshot (Vin Diesel), a.k.a. Ray Garrison, a mortally wounded soldier who is resurrected and given the task of hunting down superpowered outcasts known as harbingers.

Sony is hoping to use Bloodshot as the launchpad for a shared Valiant superhero movie universe, with the studio planning to follow it up with a Harbinger movie and sequels to both, building to the crossover film Harbinger Wars.

Cher and Abba Are a Pair Made in Pop Heaven

One of this year’s biggest and best surprises has been the perfect timing of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. The sequel to 2008’s all-Abba jukebox musical film Mamma Mia! is a serious hit — it’s grossed $96 million in just three weeks so far — and an instant cult favorite at the same time. It’s helped spike streams for the Swedish pop quartet’s decades-old classics and sparked countless new memes, all full of sweet, seemingly unironic love for both the film series and the band itself.

Guy Pearce To Replace Michael Sheen in Vin Diesel's Bloodshot

Guy Pearce (Memento) is in talks to join Vin Diesel in Sony Pictures' film adaptation of Bloodshot. According to Deadline, he will replace Michael Sheen who ended up having to drop out of the project due to scheduling and family conflicts.

There's no information on who Pearce is playing in the film, but he's a great actor and it's awesome to see him land another big comic book movie role. He previously starred in Iron Man 3.

Diesel is set to play the title role Bloodshot, a super-soldier created by the secret government organization Project Rising Spirit when he was brought back from the dead through the use of nanotechnology and suffering total memory loss, and struggles to reconnect with who he was while learning what sort of weapon he has become, with the help of a group of other augmented combatants called Chainsaw.

Risky Oscars Makeover Raises a Thousand Questions, But Few Answers

The reason behind the decisions made by the Academy’s Board of Governors to shorten the Oscars ceremony and salute more commercial films is a simple one: They had to do something.

The Academy was facing a show that was drawing fewer viewers every year, setting a record low this past March. And it was under growing pressure from ABC, which has broadcast the ceremony for decades, to reverse the troubling trend even though few TV shows draw as many viewers as they used to.

AMPAS was also staring at a loss of revenue at a time when it needs all the money it can get, both to service a rapidly expanding and increasingly international membership and to complete its hugely expensive Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles.

Guy Pearce Replaces Michael Sheen in Bloodshot as Shooting Begins

There's been a bit of a shake-up with Sony's Bloodshot movie. The Valiant Comics adaptation has been in the works for some time now and just recently kicked off production, as announced by star Vin Diesel on Instagram. Now, just as filming has gotten underway, one of the core cast members, Michael Sheen, has been forced to exit the project. He's set to be replaced by Guy Pearce, who entered the situation in a hurry as the studio was in need of a replacement rather quickly.

Michael Sheen, according to a new report, was forced to depart the project over scheduling conflicts. That left room for Sony to enter into negotiations with Guy Pearce, who is in talks to join the Bloodshot ensemble currently. Pearce is no stranger to comic book movies, having starred in Shane Black's Iron Man 3. He's also a well-regarded actor with years of experience under his belt,
