Marvel Fans Are Furious With Armie Hammer For Bashing Stan Lee Tributes

Following the sad news that Stan Lee passed away yesterday at the age of 95, social media has been awash with fans of his work paying their respects to him. For those lucky enough to have met the Marvel legend at comic cons or for comic book creators or movie stars who worked with him, a lot of folks have been sharing their photos with Lee to commemorate how much he meant to them. Or at least, that’s how most of us see it. Actor Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name) sees it a different way, though.

Hammer took to Twitter yesterday to leave a sarcastic message that criticized how people, specifically celebrities, were posting pictures of themselves with Lee to remember him instead of talking about the man himself. “So touched by all of the celebrities posting pictures of themselves with Stan Lee,” Hammer wrote. “No better way

2019 Oscars: 5 reasons why Rami Malek can win Best Actor for ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

2019 Oscars: 5 reasons why Rami Malek can win Best Actor for ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’
I know what you’re thinking. Is this a real prediction? Or is it just fantasy? Before you assume that I’m caught in a landslide (with no escape from reality), please open your eyes and look up to the skies and see … Here are five reasons why Rami Malek can win the Oscar for “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

1. He plays a real person And is physically transformed onscreen.

It’s awardsology 101. The combination of portraying an actual individual plus altering one’s outward appearance is the easiest way to ensnare the academy’s attention. In the past twenty years alone, a plethora of people have won lead statuettes for doing exactly just that.

Look at Hilary Swank in “Boys Don’t Cry,” Adrien Brody in “The Pianist,” Nicole Kidman in “The Hours,” Charlize Theron in “Monster,” Jamie Foxx in “Ray,” Philip Seymour Hoffman in “Capote,” Reese Witherspoon in “Walk the Line,

Exclusive Interview – Dakota Johnson and Luca Guadagnino on reimagining Suspiria, reboots and Call Me By Your Name 2

Tom Beasley sits down with Suspiria director Luca Guadagnino and the film’s star Dakota Johnson to talk about the depraved dance academy horror…

Ever since it was announced, the new take on Dario Argento’s witchy classic Suspiria has been one of the most exciting horror projects making its way towards cinemas. Starring Dakota Johnson as a wide-eyed ingenue making her way into a secluded dance academy, Luca Guadagnino’s reimagining of the story has divided audiences with its epic descent into the macabre.

The movie had its UK premiere at the BFI London Film Festival last month and, to mark the occasion, Johnson and Guadagnino made their way over to London. We got the chance to sit down with the duo and chat to them about Suspiria, horror reboots, rigorous dance training and the prospect of a role for Johnson in the forthcoming Call Me By Your Name sequel.

Disobedience Review

Over the past couple of years liberal cinema has been growing. Films led by Lgbt characters, films led by female characters, and – more recently – films that offer a critical stance on religion and dogma. Disobedience, the new film from A Fantastic Woman director Sebastián Lelio, encapsulates all three.

In an Orthodox Jewish community in North London, previous defector Ronit (Rachel Weisz) returns from New York to mourn the death of her father (Anton Lesser in a powerful cameo), a well-respected rabbi. She must face the judgmental eyes of the pious, but she’s not prepared for the news that her best friends from the past Dovid (Alessandro Nivola) and Esti (Rachel McAdams) have married. We soon understand that Ronit and Esti had a scorned lesbian affair with one another, and now that buried passion is looking to open itself up again.

Weisz is at the height of her abilities here:

Exclusive Interview – Mia Goth on Suspiria, learning to dance and her dream directors

Tom Beasley sits down with Suspiria actress Mia Goth to discuss her involvement in the macabre cinematic nightmare…

Luca Guadagnino’s new take on Suspiria has already polarised critics during its run on the festival circuit, transforming Dario Argento’s 1970s classic into an epic horror that marries gore with intense themes. The film stars a terrific selection of female talent, including Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Chloe Grace Moretz and Mia Goth.

The movie had its UK premiere at the BFI London Film Festival last month and we got the chance to sit down with Goth. She spoke about her role in the film, as well as the directors she would love to be able to work with.

Kyle MacLachlan Is Rocking a Mustache for a Mystery Project With Luca Guadagnino

Kyle MacLachlan Is Rocking a Mustache for a Mystery Project With Luca Guadagnino
Kyle MacLachlan may have been robbed of an Emmy nomination for his work on “Twin Peaks: The Return,” but he’ll always be a winner in our hearts. Luca Guadagnino apparently agrees, as MacLachlan tweeted today that he’s working on a project with the “Suspiria” director that apparently calls on him to sport some eye-catching facial hair: “Which side of the mustache do you prefer, left or right?” the actor asked. “Finding my look for a short film with #LucaGuadagnino shooting in Rome!”

Guadagnino has been highly prolific since directing “A Bigger Splash,” following up the 2015 drama with “Call Me by Your Name” and “Suspiria” within just three years. He has several other projects in the work, ranging from a documentary about Italian shoemaker Salvatore Ferragamo to a “Call Me by Your Name” sequel. “I am scribbling ideas,” he said of the latter during an interview at the Venice Film Festival.

Will Gotham Awards predict the Best Picture Oscar for the 4th time in 5 years?

The Gotham Awards for independent film aren’t traditionally known as a strong Oscar bellwether, but that has changed somewhat in recent years. In the last four years all of their winners for Best Feature have been nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, and three of them won. Will this be the fourth time in five years that the awards line up?

These prizes are presented by the Independent Film Project, and winners are decided by juries of writers, directors, actors, producers, editors and others directly involved in making films. From 2014-2016 they anticipated three straight Oscar champs: “Birdman” (2014), “Spotlight” (2015) and “Moonlight” (2016). In 2017 the top Gotham Award went to “Call Me by Your Name,” which subsequently earned a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars and won Best Adapted Screenplay.

Best Supporting Actor Oscar slugfest: Can Mahershala Ali really win again so soon? [Watch]
Timothee Chalamet (“Beautiful Boy”) had been sitting pretty atop our Best Supporting Actor Oscar predictions for months until Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”) bumped him down two weeks ago, but one of Gold Derby’s editors is still on the Timmy Train — for now.

“It’s a tough one. I still have Timothee at No. 1, but I could be convinced,” Marcus James Dixon says in our Best Supporting Actor slugfest with Chris Beachum and myself (watch above). “He was so great in that. And I was not a big fan of ‘Call Me by Your Name,’ but ‘Beautiful Boy’ — his performance just completely blew me away and they kind of owe him one for last year, whereas Mahershala, they don’t owe him anything; they just gave him an Oscar. The Golden Globes owe Mahershala, remember. They did not give him a Golden Globe for ‘Moonlight.’ So I could see Mahershala winning at the Globes,

How Is It Legal For Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer to Look This Good?

How Is It Legal For Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer to Look This Good?
The boys are back in town! On Sunday night, Call Me by Your Name costars Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer reunited at the 22nd Annual Hollywood Film Awards in Beverly Hills, and I'm just going to assume it's the reason I'm smiling ear to ear right now. Armie presented Timothée with an award for his work in the recent film Beautiful Boy, where he commended the 22-year-old actor's portrayal of Nic Sheff and the story of methamphetamine addiction.

"Timothée's portrait as Nic Sheff is an intense and disarming depiction of the hopelessness, despair, and collateral damage of methamphetamine addiction," Armie said in his introduction. "As Nic's experimentation with drugs leads to an uncontrollable dependence, his devastated father tries to cope with what has happened and what is happening to his son . . . It's my pleasure to present the award for Hollywood Supporting Actor to Timothée Chalamet."

While Timothée's rumored girlfriend, Lily-Rose Depp,

Timothée Chalamet Explains Why He Was “More Terrified” To Watch ‘Beautiful Boy’ Than Any Of His Previous Films

Timothée Chalamet is having a truly incredible couple of years. Last year saw the young actor starring in two Oscar-nominated films, “Lady Bird” and “Call Me By Your Name,” and actually landing a nomination of his own in the Best Actor category for the latter film. Now, 2018 sees Chalamet in the prime position of landing another Oscar nomination, this time for his work in the film ”Beautiful Boy.” But according to the actor, even after the success of 2017, he was more scared to see “Beautiful Boy” than any other film he’s starred in.

The Chainsmokers Are Turning Hit Song Paris Into a Movie

An incredibly popular song is being turned into a movie. Pop duo The Chainsmokers have launched their very own production company and one of the first items on their agenda is to turn their hit song Paris into a feature film. They've tapped Mickey Rapkin, writer of the book Pitch Perfect, which went on to inspire the successful trilogy of movies, to pen the screenplay.

The song was released in 2017 as the lead single from their debut album Memories...Do Not Open. It went on to become a huge hit, entering the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and, as of this writing, the official video has 141.6 million views on YouTube. Apparently, Drew Taggart and Alex Pall, the two men that make up The Chainsmokers, feel that's enough to justify a movie. The two had this to say about the project and their new Kick The Habit production company in a statement.

Oscars 2019: Lucas Hedges would be 4th youngest Best Actor nominee, but he’d fall short of Timothee Chalamet

Oscars 2019: Lucas Hedges would be 4th youngest Best Actor nominee, but he’d fall short of Timothee Chalamet
Last year Timothee Chalamet made history when he earned a Best Actor nomination for “Call Me by Your Name.” He was 22 years, 27 days old, which made him the third youngest nominee in the category’s history behind Jackie Cooper for “Skippy” (9-years-old) and Mickey Rooney for “Babes in Arms” (19-years-old). This year Lucas Hedges could join Chalamet on the list of the all-time youngest contenders if he makes the cut for either “Boy Erased” or “Ben is Back,” but he’d just barely miss third place by two weeks.

Chalamet was born on December 27, 1995, and he earned his Best Actor nom on January 23, 2018. This year the Oscar nominations will be announced one day earlier, but Hedges’s birthday falls 15 days earlier than Chalamet’s, so when nominations morning rolls around Hedges will be 14 days older than Chalamet was: 22 years, 41 days.

Review: Suspiria (Monte’s Take)

The way one discovers a film is important. Some films can transfer from simple moving pictures into some kind of transportive experience, where you will remember everything that contributed to the event and its effectiveness. Dario Argento’s horror masterwork Suspiria is one of those films. For me it was a 35mm print that was slightly distressed inside a theater with sticky floors and stale popcorn. It was an experience that I would never forget.

In today’s film world no film is sacred enough to be kept from being remade or reimagined, even a film as well-regarded in the horror community like Argento’s Suspiria. Also, when you mention a film during first encounters with cinephiles as holding a place on your cinematic handshake, as I do, it’s impossible not to have speculations or expectations attached. Director Luca Guadagnino, who last helmed the impressive drama Call Me by Your Name,

How the Director of Suspiria Remade a Horror Classic

Don Kaye Nov 2, 2018

Director Luca Guadagnino explains how his lifelong obsession with Suspiria led him to make his own version.

The idea of remaking Dario Argento’s 1977 horror classic Suspiria seems unthinkable in many ways: it’s such a uniquely stylized movie, with its own special atmosphere, a singular score, an incredibly vibrant color scheme and an overall vision that could only have come from its eccentric and legendary director. But Hollywood loves remakes, especially of classic horror films, so sure enough Suspiria’s moment came…and went…and came back as it changed directors and took on a whole different life.

If there was anyone born to take on the challenge, however, it’s probably Luca Guadagnino. For one thing, he’s Italian, so there is perhaps some cultural DNA from that country’s great cinematic history that he shares with Argento and other fellow directors. Second, Guadagnino saw

Actors who could earn second consecutive Oscar nomination in 2019: Timothee Chalamet, Margot Robbie …
Many actors have gotten on a hot streak with the Academy for a specific period of time in the Oscars’ 90-year history. Recently we’ve seen Octavia Spencer, Bradley Cooper, Mark Ruffalo and Amy Adams earn consecutive nominations at the Oscars. There are currently a number of last year’s Oscar nominees who could earn an afterglow nomination just one year later, proving Sally Field correct in her second acceptance speech for Best Actress when she exclaimed: “You like me, right now, you like me!”

Two of the most recent Best Actor nominees could find themselves competing yet again in 2019, this time in Best Supporting Actor. Timothee Chalamet and Daniel Kaluuya were two of the most celebrated nominees for their performances in “Call Me by Your Name” and “Get Out,” respectively, and now they’re earning acclaim for their latest projects. Chalamet plays drug addict Nic Sheff in “Beautiful Boy,

‘Boy Erased’ reviews: Will it follow in the footsteps of Lgbt Oscar winners ‘Moonlight’ and ‘Call Me by Your Name’?

‘Boy Erased’ reviews: Will it follow in the footsteps of Lgbt Oscar winners ‘Moonlight’ and ‘Call Me by Your Name’?
Two years ago “Moonlight” made history as the first film with an Lgbt protagonist to win the Oscar for Best Picture. “Call Me by Your Name” followed the next year with a Best Picture nomination for its same-sex romance. We’ve come a long way since “Brokeback Mountain” (2005). Now comes “Boy Erased,” which opened November 2 and addresses the abusive practice of gay conversion therapy. Will it follow in the footsteps of its recent Oscar winning Lgbt predecessors?

Based on a 2016 memoir of the same name by Garrard Conley, “Boy Erased” stars Lucas Hedges as Jared Eamons (the names have been changed for the purposes of the film), the son of devout Christian parents (Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe) who is sent to pray away the gay. This adaptation was written and directed by Joel Edgerton, who is best known as an actor and recently starred in another film, “Loving” (2016), that

Thom Yorke Surprised Luca Guadagnino by Singing on the ‘Suspiria’ Soundtrack — Podcast

Thom Yorke Surprised Luca Guadagnino by Singing on the ‘Suspiria’ Soundtrack — Podcast
Fourteen years ago, Luca Guadagnino and his longtime editor Walter Fasano decided that the soundtrack for their 2005 feature “Melissa P.” should be made up of “music of the now.” With the help of Carlo Antonelli, editor in chief of Rolling Stone Italy, they scored the film using 40 songs they believed would resonate with teenagers all around the world. On IndieWire’s Filmmaker Toolkit Podcast, Guadagnino said what the trio had created was impressive, but the ultimate end result was a disaster.

“We did that in a little bit of an irresponsible way because we didn’t know if we could afford it,” said Guadagnino. “The studio hated it because they found that not having a theme in the soundtrack, but going from song to song, like in ‘Goodfellas,’ you could not really connect with Melissa (María Valverde) in the way Hollywood makes you believe a soundtrack should connect with a character,
