Kanye West and Mark Zuckerberg Sing Backstreet Boys Karaoke

Kanye West and Mark Zuckerberg Sing Backstreet Boys Karaoke
Kanye West enjoyed spending time with a very famous Facebook friend this week. The rapper took to Twitter on Wednesday to post a picture of him singing karaoke with a group of men, including the company's CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The photo showed the pair belting out the Backstreet Boys' hit "I Want It That Way"—a classic karaoke choice. According to West, this wasn't the first time the duo had hung out. During a 2016 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the "Stronger" star revealed he'd actually dined with Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, before. The gathering allegedly took place after West tweeted the social media tycoon should invest $1 billion in "Kanye...

John Legend Doesn't Want to "Armchair-Diagnose" Kanye West

John Legend Doesn't Want to
John Legend is opening up about his friend Kanye West. Back in April, the "Stronger" rapper took to Twitter to share private text messages from the "All of Me" singer about his political views. These messages came shortly after West voiced his support for President Donald Trump, and led to more exchanges between the two artists about history and American politics. Last month, West took to Twitter to announce that he's distancing himself from politics. "My eyes are now wide open and now realize I've been used to spread messages I don't believe in," West tweeted. "I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative !!!" When asked about his pal's...

‘Halloween’ Producer Jason Blum Is Down for a Sequel: ‘We’re Dying to’ Make One

‘Halloween’ Producer Jason Blum Is Down for a Sequel: ‘We’re Dying to’ Make One
Halloween” grossed $76 million its opening weekend and broke records in the process, so it’s hard to imagine there won’t be a sequel to the Blumhouse film.

That said, Jason Blum, CEO of Blumhouse Productions, told TheWrap that while there is definite interest there to make a sequel, nothing has been greenlit — yet.

“It’s hard to make a great movie, period, and I always say, make a great movie first and we’ll figure out a franchise after,” Blum told TheWrap. “Of course we would want to make a sequel, in fact, we’re dying to make a sequel, but we’re guests in Malek Akkad’s house so there are a lot of people that have to be in the same mindset as us. Nothing’s been set in stone, but we’re certainly going to try.”

‘Halloween’ Director David Gordon Green on How He Pulled Off Michael Myers’ One-Shot Murder Scene
(Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you haven’t seen the new “Halloween” movie yet.)

Michael Myers is back to wreak havoc in “Halloween,” and perhaps one of the scariest scenes is when Michael goes from house to house on trick-or-treat night leaving a trail of dead bodies in various houses along a suburban street — all in one long horrifying shot.

“We were prepared to fail,” director David Gordon Green told TheWrap about the scene. “We had all these exit strategies: He could exit here, we could seam two shots here, or put a clever wipe there.”

The logistical challenge was so great that the crew spent extra time to prepare. “We spent half a day with camera operators talking through it,” Green said. “When we got to the day and all the background is running around, I didn’t want to be scientifically concerned with the precision of

Kim Kardashian Says Kanye West Made Her More "Private"

Kim Kardashian Says Kanye West Made Her More
Kim Kardashian is revealing how her relationship with Kanye West changed her outlook on life. Before the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star started dating the "Stronger" rapper in 2012, Kim lived every part of her life in and for the public. But when their romance began, she decided to make a change. "I used to...we'd get our hair and makeup done filming...and when we'd be done I was like, 'What is the hottest restaurant in Hollywood? Where can I go? Where can I be seen? Who's there? What are they doing? Oh my God! Is my car washed?" Kim tells Alec Baldwin in a clip from this Sunday's episode of The Alec Baldwin Show.

Hush Hush, Hush, Here Comes the Boogeyman… A Worthy “Halloween” Forty Years Later

When it comes to slasher movies, the gold standard is undoubtedly John Carpenter’s Halloween, something other legends and veterans in the scary movie industry openly attest to. Back in 1978, no one could predict that an independent film about a masked serial killer going after babysitters on All Hallow’s Eve would thrust itself into the proverbial stratosphere the way Halloween did and continues to with endless sequels, remakes, comic books, action figures, countless conventions and so on. It’s the franchise that keeps giving. So what better way to celebrate its 40th anniversary than for someone like independent auteur David Gordon Green (from the likes of George Washington and All the Real Girls to Pineapple Express and Stronger) to make a sequel that has some bold ideas about what direction thing should have gone in the first place? It’s a gamble that worked as he’s paid homage

Box Office: ‘Halloween’ to Carve Out Huge $65 Million-Plus Debut

  • Variety
The October box office has been light on the tricks and heavy on the treats.

“Halloween” should keep powering the domestic market as Universal’s R-rated slasher film eyes a massive opening in the $57 million to $65 million range. The studio is cautiously anticipating a $50 million bow, though some industry analysts think it could rocket past $70 million when it debuts in 3,928 theaters. “Halloween” is also releasing in 21 international territories this weekend.

Even the lower part of that range would easily shatter records for the best launch in the “Halloween” franchise. The 2007 reboot holds that distinction now with $26 million. “Halloween” also looks to notch one of the best starts for an R-rated horror film, joining the company of “It” ($123 million), “Hannibal ($58 million), and “The Nun” ($53 million). Given its $10 million production budget, the scary sequel is on track to be hugely profitable.

Emily Mortimer, Robyn Nevin, Bella Heathcote star in Natalie Erika James’ ‘Relic’

Emily Mortimer.

Carver FilmsAnna McLeish and Sarah Shaw have enlisted an A-list cast and some Hollywood heavy-hitters as co-producers and executive producers for Natalie Erika James’ debut feature Relic.

Emily Mortimer, Robyn Nevin and Bella Heathcote will star in the horror movie which centres on three generations of women – daughter, mother and grandmother – who are haunted by a manifestation of aged dementia that takes over their family home.

Nine Stories’ Jake Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker are producing together with McLeish and Shaw. Anthony and Joe Russo (directors of Marvel’s Captain America and Avengers franchise) and Mike Larocca are executive producing and co-financing via their upstart studio Agbo, which will handle international sales.

Bella Heathcote.

Co-written by James and Christian White, shooting starts in Victoria next week, with funding from Screen Australia and Film Victoria. Umbrella Entertainment is the Australian distributor.

Spider-Man: Far From Home Set Video Reveals First Look At Mysterio

Jake Gyllenhaal has finally landed his first major comic book movie role, and we couldn’t be more excited about it.

News broke earlier this year that Gyllenhaal, star of projects such as Stronger, Nightcrawler and The Day After Tomorrow, has boarded Marvel’s Spider-Man: Far From Home as Quentin Beck (Aka Mysterio), where he’ll presumably star opposite the returning Michael Keaton (Adrian Toomes/The Vulture).

Of course, the studio is yet to give us an official look at him in the role, but the mere fact that Gyllenhaal’s involved in the sequel is exciting in and of itself – not least because he apparently jumped right to the tip-top of Marvel’s wishlist after Ryan Gosling (!) bowed out of the race for Mysterio.

And now, with filming on the hugely anticipated sequel underway, we’ve received our very first glimpse of the A-lister in the role via a set photo and video.

Box Office: ‘Halloween’ Eyes Scary-Good $50 Million Opening
Forty years after narrowly escaping Michael Myers wrath, Laurie Strode is heading back to theaters to face off against the creepy masked murderer once again.

Universal’s R-rated slasher, which was produced by Blumhouse and Miramax, is eyeing a start around $45 million when it opens on Oct. 19, though that number could shoot even higher as buzz builds around the spooky sequel. Some estimates show it could make over $55 million during the three-day period. That would be massively successful given that it was made for just $10 million. It would also rank as a series-best launch for the “Halloween” franchise. The 2007 “Halloween” reboot has the biggest debut to date with $26 million.

Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her role for the fourth time as Laurie Strode, the former babysitter who is now a grandmother. Nick Castle also returns as Michael Myers, the deranged serial killer who readies for a final showdown with Strode on Halloween night.

’22 July’ Review: Paul Greengrass Confronts Norway’s Darkest Day With a Glimmer of Hope — Venice

’22 July’ Review: Paul Greengrass Confronts Norway’s Darkest Day With a Glimmer of Hope — Venice
The title is both a warning and a memorial. “22 July” might not carry as much visceral weight among American viewers as “United 93,” but it certainly will in Norway. That’s the date, just over seven years ago, when Anders Behring Breivik killed eight people in a van explosion targeting Oslo’s city center before gunning down 69 more at a summer camp on the nearby island of Utøya. If that doesn’t sound like fun subject matter for a film, it isn’t — but Paul Greengrass has a careful approach that gives voice to those who permanently lost their own.

Both a continuation of and departure from the writer-director’s signature aesthetic, the filmmaker’s latest docudrama is a movie in which Europeans speak accented English rather than their native tongue and speechify in a way their real-world counterparts likely did not. Beyond those minor transgressions, “22 July” proves an immersive

Real-life terror: is it exploitative to use human suffering for cinematic thrills?

This year sees the release of two films based on the Utøya island attack – but what can a film based on real events tell us that documentary footage or eyewitness testimony cannot?

The question of how to approach human suffering on camera has confounded film-makers for decades. There’s no blueprint when it comes to turning news stories into cinema, and while the likes of Schindler’s List and 12 Years a Slave have been praised for providing insight into historical atrocities, in recent years, attention has turned to events that are fresh in our collective memory.

In many cases, this means acts of terrorism. The events of 9/11 became the narrative of United 93 and World Trade Center in 2006, while the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing inspired Patriots Day (2016) and Stronger (2017). It’s human nature to want to make order out of chaos, and these films speak to a collective yearning for answers

Danny McBride’s Hopeful That Halloween Won’t Ruin Too Many Childhoods

On October 19th, a Blumhouse horror movie hits theaters.

But not just any Blumhouse gig; the long-in-development Halloween sequel from David Gordon Green and Danny McBride, who have approached their 2018 feature film from a very specific angle. Which is to say that they’ve ignored all Halloween sequels in favor of the original John Carpenter classic – a classic that is about to celebrate its 40th anniversary in style.

That said, handling such a revered IP comes with a particular set of expectations, and McBride even admitted to IndieWire that he’s now beginning to feel a little nervous about Halloween‘s impending release.

In this day and age, Hollywood is tapping into so many beloved franchises that it seems like any time anything comes out there’s the contingency of people that are stoked, and the contingency of people that are fucking pissed off and saying you ruined their childhood somehow.

Danny McBride Hopes Halloween Doesn't Ruin Too Many Childhoods
Danny McBride is hopeful that he and his fellow writers didn't ruin too many childhoods with the upcoming Halloween. McBride is primarily known for his exploits in comedy, but the actor has been breaking into genre stuff as of late. With Halloween, he's taken on an important role behind the scenes as co-writer of the script, alongside his frequent collaborate David Gordon Green. They've made some bold decisions with the movie, which he hopes won't result in a lot of pissed off, nostalgic horror fans.

During a recent interview, Danny McBride talked a bit about what they hope to accomplish with Halloween 2018 and the fact that Hollywood is very franchise-happy right now. With so many sequels, reboots and things of that nature happening currently, McBride is very aware that tends to create a divide amongst moviegoers. Here's what he had to say about it.
