While Disney and Lucasfilm are preparing to unleash Star Wars: The Last Jedi in theaters on December 15, some theater owners aren’t feeling the Force — specifically, the demands Disney has in place for screenings and their cut of the profits. Although most moviegoers in larger markets with bigger theaters won’t have to worry about missing out on the next chapter in the Star Wars saga, fans in smaller cities might get burned.
Brett Ratner isn’t the only Hollywood heavyweight whose history of alleged sexual misconduct was exposed today. Around the same time that The LA Times published their extensive report on Ratner, The Hollywood Reporter ran a guest column from Anna Graham Hunter, an author and former production assistant who alleges that Dustin Hoffman sexually harassed and forcibly groped her on the set of a 1985 TV film.
Few celebrities are able to get into the Halloween spirit like Jamie Lee Curtis, the star of the classic horror franchise named after the holiday itself. Sure, Gwyneth Paltrow’s Se7en costume this year was inspired, and LeBron James makes for a fantastic Pennywise, but you really can’t top Jamie Lee Curtis posing with iconic boogeyman Michael Myers for a new Halloween teaser photo…on Halloween.
Back in 2016, it was announced that Chance the Rapper was working on a secret film project with A24 — the acclaimed indie distributors behind recent faves like The Witch, Green Room, and Moonlight. That project is a horror film called Slice, and the studio has released a new teaser trailer for their collaboration with the beloved rapper just in time for Halloween.
163 minutes is a pretty intimidating runtime for casual viewers, which partially accounts for the underwhelming box office returns on Blade Runner 2049. If you hesitated to commit to a visually ambitious sci-fi epic that’s almost three hours long, then a four-hour sci-fi epic might be out of the question (at least until it arrived on Blu-ray). But that was almost the case with Blade Runner 2049; according to the editor of Denis Villeneuve’s sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic, the first cut of the film was much longer, and may have required repeat visits to the theater.
Jigsaw may have won the weekend, but don’t count on a full revival of Saw just yet. Although you’d think audiences would be flocking to the theater for a few pre-holiday thrills, this Halloween weekend was incredibly weak overall. Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! and Geostorm round out the top three at the box office, but low grosses make these “wins” feel more like consolation prizes just for showing up.
You’ll have to forgive Taika Waititi for taking so long to make that What We Do in the Shadows werewolf spinoff. The New Zealand filmmaker has been pretty darn busy frolicking in Asgard for Marvel. But with Thor: Ragnarok hitting theaters in a week, Waititi is turning his attention to upcoming projects, which now include not one, not two, but three spinoffs from What We Do in the Shadows — and one of them could be coming to television screens in America.
IT is the biggest horror film of the year, and if you still haven’t seen Andy Muschietti’s surprisingly great adaptation of Stephen King’s classic novel (doubtful, you’re smart people), then perhaps the opening scene from the movie will persuade you…or maybe it’ll just reinforce your decision to stay the heck at home in your comfy, cozy, sewer clown-free environment. Beep beep!
Ya boy Vin Diesel is back on that breaking news beat. In a new “secret” Facebook livestream, your number one source for all things Vin Diesel revealed that two key members of the Fast and Furious fam are returning for the ninth installment in the series: Director Justin Lin (who previously helmed the fourth, fifth and sixth films) and Jordana Brewster (who hasn’t appeared in the series since Furious 7’s farewell to Paul Walker).
