Armie Hammer Issues Apology for Criticizing Fans Over Stan Lee Selfie Tributes
Armie Hammer has issued an apology in the wake of backlash over his statements criticizing certain fan tributes to the late Stan Lee. Hammer took to social media on November 12, the same day Stan Lee passed away, to express his issue with fans of the comic book icon who were paying tribute by posting selfie photos.

“So touched by all of the celebrities posting pictures of themselves with Stan Lee.” Hammer said in a since-deleted Tweet. “No better way to commemorate an absolute legend than putting up a picture of yourself.”

“If Stan impacted your life (ie. All of our lives) with his work, post his work that touched you the most,” the “Call Me By Your Name” actor said in a follow-up tweet. “Posting a selfie makes his death about you and how cool you felt taking a picture with him.”

Ever since the news broke that Stan Lee has passed away, social media has flooded with messages from fans and celebrities remembering the man and thanking him for his contributions to comic book history. But with this being the internet, it was inevitable that this outpouring of tributes was also the subject of a little conflict.

In a now-deleted tweet, actor Armie Hammer took his fellow celebrities to task for the ways they’ve chosen to honor the memory of Lee:

“So touched by all of the celebrities posting pictures of themselves with Stan Lee… no better way to commemorate an absolute legend than putting up a picture of yourself.”

Regardless of whether you think the Call Me by Your Name star had a point, telling other people how to mourn was never going to go over well with the internet at large, and the actor was quickly met with a wave of backlash.

Killing the Mother: Luca Guadagnino Discusses "Suspiria"

Luca Guadagnino. Image courtesy of Mubi.Born in Palermo, Sicily, to Italian/Algerian parents, Luca Guadagnino reckons if he hadn’t become a critically acclaimed, award-winning director/producer/screenwriter, his career would probably have revolved around fashion, interior design or historical research. In fact, all of the obsessions that have clearly added to the artistic textures and detailed truths perceived in his eclectic work to date that have made them so remarkable. From his debut crime thriller The Protagonists (1999), the first of five films to star Tilda Swinton, who many call his "muse," to the incisive paean Bertolucci on Bertolucci, Guadagnino has dug deep into the human emotional and identity landscapes while never forfeiting the lush style or delicate sensuality each of his subjects, both real and imaginary, bring to the aesthetic table.After working diligently in both the feature film and documentary arenas Guadagnino’s big-time breakout came with

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

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:

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.
