    We’re living in an entirely new moment of cinema. Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie is only the beginning of the American cinema’s very own French New Wave phenomenon—call it the Great Product Period of the 21st Century. A number of bizarre brand-based projects are already in the works (Barbie, a movie about Uno, Lena Dunham’s Polly Pocket movie), and now, Hollywood has really upped the ante with: here comes a live-action Pac-Man film. How you can make a yellow chomping circle into a live-action event is beyond me. Didn't we already have The Emoji Movie? But where there’s a will, there’s a way. Jane the Virgin alum Justin Baldoni has assembled a team under his Wayfarer Studios production company—though as of now, the actor hasn’t joined the film’s cast. He’s currently only set to serve as producer. The studio has yet to announce any plot details (though we predict colorful ghosts will be hungry for some Pac-Man blood), but the idea comes from Chuck Williams, who most recently worked on the Sonic the Hedgehog live-action saga. Apparently, the director has...
    Last Week Tonight host John Oliver went after Warner Bros. Discovery during his Sunday broadcast, in which he said it appears his new “business daddy” is burning down HBO. During a segment on monkeypox vaccines expiring, Oliver turned briefly to Warner Bros. Discovery, which has made some massive moves since the merger between Warner Bros. and Discovery, including nixing CNN+ after a matter of weeks, as well as canceling in-production films including DC’s Batgirl to get future tax write-offs. “We let the vaccine sit unused on a shelf in our reserves like an expired Chobani or a $90 million movie on HBO Max,” Oliver said, then showing an image from the canceled Batgirl. “By the way, hi there, new business daddy! Seems like you’re doing a really great job. I do get the vague sense that you’re burning down my network for the insurance money, but I’m sure that will all pass.” Batgirl was well into production when Warner Bros. Discovery canceled it. By using the production as a tax write-off, the company is prevented from profiting off...
    In this article NFLXA button for launching the Netflix application is seen on a remote control in this photo illustration in Warsaw, Poland on April 25, 2019.Jaap Arriens | NurPhoto | Getty ImagesThere's a big money question haunting Netflix. In recent years, the streamer has spent big on flashy, blockbuster-style action movies like "The Gray Man" and "Red Notice," which ran the company $200 million each. The films are the first steps in bids to spark event-level franchises. But they're costly, and it's unclear how impactful they have been for Netflix's bottom line. Meanwhile, the platform's smash hit "Stranger Things," a supernatural thriller with horror undertones, has become a clear cultural touchstone. The series, which just released its fourth season, has inspired Halloween costumes and videogame versions of the monster-filled alternative universe. While the show has a similar budget to these high-octane action flicks — around $30 million per episode, or more than $200 million per season — its success has led some in the industry to question whether high-budget features are worth Netflix's investment. Netflix's streaming rivals have begun...
    Crown Media Hallmark’s newest movie, “Love in the Limelight,” stars real-life married couple Carlos and Alexa PenaVega. But the true story inspirations don’t stop there. The movie’s storyline is inspired by the real-life love story of Willie Aames and Winnie Hung.The Movie Is About a Fan Letter That Sparked True LoveAccording to Crown Media’s press release, the synopsis for “Love in the Limelight” is as follows: As a teenager, Summer (Alexa PenaVega) was a devoted fan of the popular boy band the Mendez Boyz, especially Nick (Carlos PenaVega), their lead singer. After receiving a sweet fan letter from Summer, Nick decides to respond with a phone call, sparking the start of a friendship that’s lasted to this day. When Nick’s manager books a gig for him at a small venue in Summer’s hometown of Salt Lake City where she now works in human resources at a local university, the two finally meet face-to-face. It’s clear their friendship has set the stage for romance. Although the names have been changed, Summer and Nick’s love story is loosely based on...

    It’s always an exciting moment when a new animation studio debuts its first feature film. It can tell us what the studio is capable of, and what to expect from it going forward. Disney, for instance, has continued to build its legacy off of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs; Pixar brought us computer-generated animation with Toy Story; and Illumination created a legitimate cultural shift by unleashing little yellow Minions in Despicable Me. Luck, now on Apple TV+, is the first movie from Skydance Animation. Skydance is keen on making a big impact in the animated world, bringing on the likes of eight-time Oscar winner composer Alan Menken and The Incredibles and Ratatouille director Brad Bird to work on future projects. There’s some serious pedigree here, and as the marketing for Luck informs us, the film comes “from the creative visionary behind Toy Story and Cars.” (One of these things is not like the other, but I digress.) Apple TV+ In specific terms, that means that Luck is produced by John Lasseter—the man often credited for being behind some of...

Excuse me, there are how many TV shows? Will this get you to watch The Bear? The Best and Worst Horror Scene of the Year (Same Scene)I’ve been lucky enough to see the new A24 horror film Bodies Bodies Bodies twice with raucous crowds, whose reactions to the film blew the roof off the building. Well, the second time was in a park in Brooklyn in August, so it blew the smelly sweat off the people. Or at least tried. (My sweat persevered.) It’s a wild movie. During a hurricane, a bunch of rich Gen Z elders (if I have to live with the absolute hate speech of “geriatric millennial,” then today’s 23-year-olds have to live with that) gather with their boyfriends and...
    The horror genre is filled with tropes that are designed to creep you out, things that have been used for decades to terrify audiences. The jump scare, the face in the bathroom mirror, the chase scene—need I continue? It would seem that there’s nothing left to scare us, that everything’s been done hundreds of times over. That is, until one film dared to implement the most terrifying thing of all: self-empowerment anthems. They/Them (or “They Slash Them”) is the new slasher film out Friday on Peacock, billed as “an LGBTQIA+ empowerment tale set in a conversion camp.” It’s trying to bring some originality back to mainstream horror. Aside from a couple of bigger names, like Kevin Bacon, to lend itself credibility and attract a wider audience, it boasts a cast of entirely queer actors, which is a huge step for a film produced by a major studio. Its conversion camp setting is certainly one that could hold a great amount of horror movie potency; conversion camps are very real, gruesome places where bigoted, ignorant families send children to be mentally...
    (CNN)Horror movies are no strangers to social commentary, or the desire to be cathartic in how they use violence. Yet the latest example of those impulses, "They/Them," illustrates how tricky that proposition can be, in a story that at various times feels creepy, exploitative and preachy, without becoming particularly tense or scary.The fact that the film is making its debut on Peacock, NBC's streaming service, indicates that nobody saw the finished product as a major commercial attraction. But it's worth acknowledging because it represents a kind of horror movie that seemingly wants to have its cake and carve it up too.The premise involves a group of teens sent to a gay-conversion-therapy camp, a classic no-escape setting in the middle of nowhere without cellphone reception.Adding another few degrees to his resume, Kevin Bacon plays the camp's proprietor, who reassuringly greets the new arrivals by saying, "I can't make you straight," after they pass a sign that reads "Respect. Renew. Rejoice."Still, this is a horror movie, so the cheerful welcome soon gives way to less-friendly interactions. And while the victims take unexpected...

    Despite $90m being spent and a release date being planned for the end of this year, this week Hollywood was rattled when Warner Bros announced that the highly- anticipated Batgirl film - planned for HBO Max - was being shelved.  Batgirl, a 'woke', big-budget film featuring a female version of the iconic superhero, was branded 'irredeemable', despite being completely finished. Feedback at test screenings was so awful that it was canned, making it perhaps the most expensive film ever made that will never see the light of day, although it's by no means the only big budget production never to make it on to screens.  It joins a graveyard of movies which were awkwardly shelved, including a Louis C.K. directed film about seducing a 17-year-old, a 3D mermaid fantasy, and a spy thriller starring Michael Flatley; of Lord of the Dance fame.   Yesterday Hollywood was rattled when Warner Bros announced that the highly anticipated Batgirl flick - a $90m movie planned for HBO Max - was being shelved The studio attributed the axing of the nearly completed feature to 'leadership's strategic shift',...
    The huge success of 'Top Gun: Maverick' shows that even Hollywood has now realized the threat posed by China, according to military contractor Erik Prince, who praised the movie on Thursday for restoring a Taiwan patch to Tom Cruise's famous jacket. A trailer for the movie in 2019 raised fears that producers were bowing to China's new financial might by removing two of the patches that were seen on Cruise's back in the original movie. However, they were eventually restored despite worries the presence of a patch representing the autonomous island nation would offend Beijing.    'It's amazing to see Hollywood has come alive to the fact that a movie like Top Gun that is pro-America, and kind of stands up to China because China was complaining about the mere patch of Taiwan on Tom Cruise's jacket,' Prince told Steve Bannon on his War Room podcast, which was recorded at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas, Texas. Prince and Bannon have long railed against the threat of communist China. Tom Cruise's original jacket (left) showed patches with the flags of...
    (CNN)For those who remember the original "Predator," the alien hunter's code of conduct -- only using the weapons and force required to make things sporting -- helps mightily when trying to fight it. Even so, "Prey" represents an odd if refreshingly spare addition to the franchise, giving a coming-of-age spin to a faceoff that can't help but feel like a serious mismatch.Landing directly on Hulu (a choice that seemingly speaks to the film's perceived theatrical prospects), this latest entry in a series that hasn't been particularly memorable since the first movie proves small-boned by the genre's standards, dropping the hulking killer in Comanche territory 300 years ago, where its trophies initially include plenty of the local fauna.The thrills don't look cheap, exactly, but the whole thing feels a bit cheaper, as if this were the pilot for an anthology series titled "Tales of the Predator," charting periodic visits through history."A long time ago, it is said, a monster came here," the movie says at the start, before introducing Naru (Amber Midthunder), a young female warrior who wishes to be taken...
    The producer of DC's upcoming film The Flash has tried to calm fan's fears that it is next to be axed by Warner Bros after the studio killed off the $90million flop film Batgirl.  Starring Ezra Miller, The Flash is scheduled to be released in 2023 - but many have speculated that it will also be shelved because of Warner Bros' seeming lack of clarity.  According to The Flash Film News on Twitter, the movie's producer Barbara Muschietti said that 'All is good in Flash land' despite it only being 'expected' to hit theaters next June.  In a conversation with the fan page, which collates information about the upcoming film, Muschietti said that it was 'absolute b******t' to suggest that The Flash does not yet have a firm release date.  They posted: 'Amid the recent DCEU shakeup, THE FLASH producer, Barbara Muschietti, wants to reassure fans that "all is good in Flash land."' Warner Bros has not commented on whether The Flash is still expected to hit screens next year when approached by DailyMail.com.  According to The Flash Film News...
    Getty Alabama head coach Nick Saban. After a scary movie kept some of Nick Saban’s players up at night, the Alabama Crimson Tide football coach learned an important lesson and changed his pregame preparation, a new book reveals. “The Leadership Secrets of Nick Saban” author and AL.com editor John Talty talked about how the horror film “The Ring” impacted the coach during an August 3 interview on the “Andy Staples Show.” During the interview, Staples brought up one of his favorite stories from Talty’s upcoming book about the Alabama coach. Staples recounted that after Saban’s LSU team pulled off an upset over Kentucky in the Bluegrass Miracle in 2002, the players watched an unusual movie the night before their next game at Alabama. “The saw ‘The Ring.’ Which, by the way, ‘The Ring’ is probably the scariest movie I’ve ever seen in a theater. I remember watching it with my wife, being terrified,” Staples said. “…A little girl crawling out of a well through your TV.” Talty added, “Nick Saban doesn’t really make mistakes. I’m not sure if...
    Batgirl star Leslie Grace spoke out for the first time after Warner Bros. executives axed the $90 million movie as she shared behind-the-scenes pictures and footage from the film's production.  Writing on Instagram following criticism of the canceling from directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah on Wednesday, the Latina actress said she was proud of the movie executives deemed 'awful.'   'Querida familia! On the heels of the recent news about our movie "Batgirl," I am proud of the love, hard work and intention all of our incredible cast and tireless crew put into this film over seven months in Scotland,' Grace wrote.  'I feel blessed to have worked among absolute greats and forged relationships for a lifetime in the process! To every Batgirl fan - THANK YOU for the love and belief, allowing me to take on the cape and become, as Babs said best, "my own damn hero!'''  As she stood by the movie, Grace shared videos and pictures of the production, including several photos of herself in the Batgirl costume and of the crew having fun.  Leslie Grace,...
    The directors of scrapped movie Batgirl have slammed Warner Bros' decision to axe the 'awful' $100million film as they said they hoped fans will one day get to see it.     Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, the shelved movie's directors, said they 'still can't believe' the shocking news that their creation was binned - and that they wished Batgirl could have been showed to fans across the world.  But God willing 'inshAllah' it will be one day, they said.  The decision to axe the film — which was slated to be released on HBO Max later this year — came after a series of test screenings were panned by audiences, and studio execs thought it would hurt the future of the brand as they seek to streamline the DC Extended Universe.  El Arbi and Fallah, who also directed Bad Boys For Life and Disney+'s Ms Marvel, wrote in a statement on Instagram: 'We are saddened and shocked by the news. We still can't believe it.  'As directors, it is critical that our work be shown to audiences, and while the...
    I’ve done everything in my power to avoid the sun’s wrath in recent years. Whereas I once laid in UV-laden tanning beds and fried on the beach wearing sun-absorbing baby oil, I’ve learned to embrace the safer side of achieving sun-kissed skin in my older years, even if that means getting my glow from a bottle. Thankfully, sunless tanning products have dramatically improved in recent years. Though these over-the-counter products once left you looking blotchy, uneven, and just plain awkward with their mysterious, often-haphazard results, today’s most innovative tanning products are creating ethereal, enviable tans that look healthy, natural, and downright gorgeous. Even A-list celebrities are rocking sunless-tanning products, including your residential dream beau, Ryan Gosling. Tanning specialist Kimberly Nkoski, who worked as a tanning expert on the highly anticipated Barbie film (premiering in 2023), used the vegan, cruelty-free, and affordable brand Isle of Paradise to create Gosling’s Barbie-inspired glow for his role as Ken in the film. If a product works well enough to make Gosling look even more dreamy than he already is, it’s definitely worth researching. I...
    The series is also described by actor Diego Luna as “insanely ambitious, dark and real." Gilroy has not commented on the politics of the show, but he has said in previous interviews that it will change the canon of the franchise universe, especially the assumptions the audience had about characters in the "Rogue One" movie. “It’s upside down, or it’s sideways, or it’s the opposite of what you thought was true," he explained cryptically. "Or it’s way more interesting than you had ever thought," he added. "Or that’s a lie and there’s a reason for it. I would say that there’s some surprises in store.” The series is scheduled to debut on the Disney+ streaming service on September 21 and will run for 12 episodes.

    Aboard the speeding locomotive of “Bullet Train” ride at least five assassins, one venomous reptile (a snake on the train), countless glib Guy Ritchie-esque slo-mo action sequences, and one bucket-hat wearing Brad Pitt. It’s a lot of ingredients that go into this candy-colored, battle royale of a movie. But the only one that really matters is that last one. At 58, Pitt’s star power has never seemed so easy and so natural. Radiant in “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood,” delicious in “The Lost City,” Pitt glides into “Bullet Train” in an rarified state of cruise control. Seldom has a movie star seemed to be having so much fun. In “Bullet Train,” which opens in theaters Friday, Pitt plays a hired gun by profession but little else. His code name is Ladybug. He doesn’t like guns. And in his first job back after a hiatus of self-reflection and therapy, he goes into lethal fights with great reluctance, spouting self-help slogans like “Hurt people hurt people” in the midst of hand-to-hand combat. Pitt, a maximum movie star with a...

    After months (years…who could say anymore?) of whispers, gossip, and much postponing, Ana de Armas has made her big debut as Norma Jean. In the first full-length trailer for Andrew Dominik’s highly-anticipated (nearly mythical) Blonde, the actress is finally Marilyn Monroe—and having a crisis about what that means. Though she’s soaring in Hollywood, Norma Jean just doesn’t see herself in the persona of Marilyn Monroe. Obviously, a silky rendition of “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” carols over the whole trailer, a perfect blend of eerie and beautiful. Bobby Cannavale (who stars as “The Ex-Athlete”) opens the preview in a scene at a dinner with Marilyn, posing a simple question: “How did you get your start?” Marilyn says she never got her start. Fame came busting down her door, and it hasn’t stopped stalking her since. “I guess I was discovered,” she says through tears. “I know you’re supposed to get used to it. But I just can’t. I’ve played Marilyn Monroe, Marilyn Monroe, Marilyn Monroe. I can’t face doing another scene as Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn doesn’t exist.” Clearly,...
    (CNN)Who's a good movie? Not "DC League of Super-Pets," a big colorful idea that proves promising in theory -- tailor-made for a two-minute trailer -- but a rather tedious slog as a full-length animated film. Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart's "Jumanji" reunion as the central voices and an intriguing start to serve up a few bones fun-wise, but not nearly as much as there should be.Director/co-writer Jared Stern and script partner John Whittington have both worked on the Lego movies, and that history shows in the rat-a-rat barrage of gags that fly by, some clearly aimed at adults steeped in comic-book lore and others simply loud, goofy and designed for kids.Yet after a visually impressive introduction that playfully rewrites the 1978 movie "Superman" -- having a puppy-sized Krypto (Johnson) stow away on baby Kal-El's ship to Earth -- the movie yields diminishing returns, with the cleverest gags too heavily outnumbered by those that fall flat.Poor Krypto has grown up with an enviable canine existence, enjoying regular walks (OK, dazzling flights over Metropolis) with his master and even helping him fight...

    WHEN it comes to making a successful gaming franchise, brand recognition is half the battle. So it doesn’t take a marketing genius to realise that if you adapt some of the highest-grossing movies into games, people the world over will already recognise the brand. 1Movie tie-in games have a bad reputation for a reason.Credit: Electronic Arts Unfortunately, years of shoddy work in this field have given movie tie-in games a bad reputation, and almost every self-respecting gamer knows to avoid them. Even a franchise as wildly popular as Marvel’s Avengers hasn’t been able to land a huge hit, with the series’ landmark 2020 game getting average reviews at best.

    Michael Eisner had an idea. And it wasn’t a very popular one at first. The visionary Disney leader, who served of CEO of the house built by Mickey Mouse from 1984 to 2005, was interested in turning the 1994 animated “Lion King” movie into a stage musical. So, he took the idea to the film’s creative team. “He first asked everybody’s opinion — ‘What do you guys think about putting this on the stage?’” remembers Roger Allers, who co-directed the blockbuster film with Rob Minkoff. “And all of us around the table went, ‘We think that’s an awful idea.’” Turns out some members of the creative team had actually already discussed the possibility of a musical, but, Allers says, “All we could picture were, like, people in great big fuzzy animal costumes and we thought, ‘That will be ridiculous.

    From the opening scene – set in a raucous Bangkok as thousands of people are celebrating New Year's Eve, until our hero causes chaos as he attempts to assassinate a villain – to the white-knuckle ride of beautiful locations, fast cars, glamorous women and dead bodies that follows, The Gray Man makes no bones about its intentions.  The £170 million movie, Netflix's most expensive film ever, brazenly takes its inspiration from James Bond and at one point, when our hero – a CIA agent who always has a smart one-liner to hand – is asked why he goes by the name Six, he replies, 'because 007 was taken'. And Bridgerton's Regé-Jean Page, who's been tipped as a future 007, plays a creepy CIA boss.  Based on the first in a series of books by Mark Greaney about the global hunt for Six when he goes on the run after discovering a dark CIA secret, the project has been written and directed by brothers Joe and Anthony Russo, the men behind the Marvel blockbusters Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.  Ryan...
    Netflix has had a rough go of it lately, dropping $50 billion in market value in April when it divulged that it had lost 200,000 subscribers in the first quarter of 2022, and then announcing this week that it had bled an additional 970,000 subscribers in the second quarter—a hit that was actually cast in a positive light, since it was less than the streaming service’s own projections. All is not sunshine and roses at the 21st-century entertainment giant, although it’s aiming to turn things around beginning this weekend with The Gray Man, Joe and Anthony Russo’s spy-vs-spy saga in which Ryan Gosling’s rogue CIA agent does battle against Chris Evans’ sociopathic mercenary. The most expensive production in the company’s history (with a reported $200 million price tag), it’s Netflix’s biggest gamble to date on creating a genuine action blockbuster—and, with it, a lucrative franchise. Netflix shouldn’t get their hopes up. Premiering online July 22 (following an earlier theatrical run), The Gray Man executes its mission with workmanlike competence but a frustrating lack of larger-than-life flair; its mayhem rarely pops...
    Tamara Ecclestone has offered a £6million reward for the return of her £25million stolen jewellery that was swiped from her Kensington mansion back in 2019. A gang struck while Ms Ecclestone, the Formula One heiress and daughter of racing supremo Bernie Ecclestone, her husband Jay Rutland and daughter Sophia were on holiday in Lapland.  Those behind Britain's biggest domestic burglary entered through the garden, and were seen hiding behind a child's Wendy House from security cameras, before smashing open a window to get into the £70million property in West London.  The criminals left a trail of destruction and ransacked her home before fleeing when they were disturbed by an unarmed security guard.  The 38-year-old socialite took to social media on Sunday to tell her fans she has 'waited long enough to get back her stolen possessions by conventional means'. She went on to say she has been inspired by 'Mel Gibson from the movie Ransom' - which sees a millionaire adopt a novel technique for tracking down the kidnappers and recovering his abducted son - and is now offering a monetary reward for the...
    There is a movie called Nope that hit theaters this weekend. Heard of it? Jordan Peele’s latest film is a genuine summer blockbuster, a creature feature featuring electric performances, exhilarating visuals, and the requisite resonant ideas that we’ve come to expect from the filmmaker. It stars Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer as siblings who inherit their father’s Hollywood horse-training business and, while isolated in the California hills, suspect a UFO has been lurking around. When this UFO—beast, alien, monster, spaceship…whatever it is—begins stalking them, they hunt it in return, hoping to secure “the Oprah shot”: footage that proves aliens exist, and will lead to a cash windfall. Are we going to spoil what happens in the coolest movie to hit theaters this summer? (Nope.) Are we going to go into major detail about the sequence when the main characters finally confront the monster? (Nope.) But if you’ve seen the film, should you read on to see what our entertainment staff thought said monster looked like? (Yep.) Like everyone who’s seen the film, our team hasn’t stopped thinking about it....
    VIDEO game movies don’t have a great reputation, and it’s no surprise when you look at this lineup. They often get lots of money poured into them. Huge stars, expensive sets, and marketing like you wouldn’t believe. 1These video game movie adaptations are truly terrible.Credit: Buena Vista Pictures However, it’s very rare all that investment gets any substantial return, with bomb after bomb hitting the silver screen. There have been exceptions. Both Sonic the Hedgehog movies have done very well, as well as Sonic’s Netflix show and a third film is already in development. That doesn’t change the fact that, by and large, movies about video games are a recipe for disaster. Fans of the game walk away unhappy because it didn’t do the game justice, and regular moviegoers are unhappy because they don’t understand the context.

    Ryan Gosling and Ana De Armas' new thriller The Gray Man has been panned by critics - who branded the flick as 'a dull, derivative waste of money' and 'a cheap Jason Bourne ripoff.' The movie is set to air on the streaming site tomorrow, but some who got a sneak peek of the action-packed film were quick to slam it. Directed by the Russo Brothers (who were previously behind movies like Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame), the movie is about a top CIA agent who uncovers a dark secret within the agency, all while being hunted by a former colleague who has set a slew of international assassins after him. With a star-studded cast of Gosling, De Armas, Chris Evans, Rege-Jean Page, and Billy Bob Thornton, and a $200 million budget, many are excited for its premiere.  However, numerous critics have ridiculed the flick, with one calling it 'formulaic, bland, unoriginal, and disappointingly mediocre.'

    Give it up for Where the Crawdads Sing, which can now claim the title of the worst film ending of 2022. No, the year isn’t over yet. But there’s no way anything can top the soul-crushing, cheap, and completely implausible final sequence in the adaptation of Delia Owens' novel. The novel’s final act is bad—involving a final kicker to the mystery that makes no sense—but the film adaptation takes that poor payoff and multiplies it by a thousand. No, there aren’t any new twists: The ending, plot-wise, is the same as the book. Why, then, is it so terrible? If you’ve seen the movie, one glance at Daisy Edgar-Jones’ old age makeup and you’ll understand why I’m so upset. In the overly long movie’s last 10 minutes, our protagonist Kya (Edgar-Jones) ages out of her 20s and into old age. She’s spent the young years of her life fighting to survive, struggling against everything from an abusive father to a murder trial; alas, now, she’s happily settled down with the love of her life. (There’s a love triangle, but...

    Celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton has opened up about the inspiration behind Jennifer Lopez's wedding day hair, saying he wanted a 'timeless' and 'effortless' look that complemented her natural beauty.  The singer, 52, wore her shiny brown locks in a half-up, half-down style when she and Ben Affleck, 49, tied the knot during an intimate wedding ceremony at the famous Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas on Saturday.

    NEW YORK (AP) — There’s little in contemporary movies quite like the arrival of a new Jordan Peele film. They tend to descend ominously and mysteriously, a little like an unknown object from above that casts an expanding, darkening shadow the closer it comes. “Nope,” the writer-director’s third film, is nearly here. After Peele’s singular debut, “Get Out,” about the possession of Black bodies and the fallacy of post-racial America, and his follow-up, “Us,” a monstrous tale of doppelgangers and societal mirrors, the closely-kept-under-wraps “Nope” brings a new set of horrors and unsettling metaphors. For Peele, who writes through shooting and considers the conversation generated by a movie one of its main ingredients, “Nope” is far from a finished project. “Movie’s done,” Peele said in a recent interview. “I’m still writing it.” It’s Peele’s most ambitious film yet, a flying saucer horror that digs into the nature of spectacle and the desire to document it — a multithreaded theme that encompasses Hollywood history and “Nope,” itself. Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer star as a brother and sister in a...
    Rocky star Sylvester Stallone, 76, is in an all out war with a film producer over the rights to the legendary boxing film franchise. Stallone slammed producer Irwin Winkler and his entire family for 'controlling' the Rocky and Creed films, dubbing it the 'real Rocky horror show' in a series of social media posts on Sunday. More than four decade ago, Stallone burst onto the Hollywood scene playing the eponymous Rocky Balboa, an Italian American boxer from the streets of South Philadelphia. The Rocky films would go on to gross nearly $2billion at the box office.  Fighting words: Sylvester Stallone, 76, wrote a scathing social media post about being cheated out of the rights to the Rocky films by producer Irwin Winkler on Sunday Taking to Instagram, the Italian Stallion shared a grotesque art rending of producer Irwin Winkler with a scathing caption. 'A VERY Flattering portrait of The Great Rocky/ Creed Producer , IRWIN WINKLER, from one of the country‘s greatest artist,' Sly penned. 'ALSO after IRWIN controlling ROCKY for over 47 years , and now CREED, , I really...
    After helming the second-biggest film in box-office history—namely, Avengers: Endgame, their fourth Marvel Cinematic Universe feature following Avengers: Infinity War, Captain America: Civil War and Captain America: The Winter Soldier—Joe and Anthony Russo stepped away from the superhero game. But their franchise-filmmaking ambitions are back with The Gray Man, an adaptation of Mark Greaney’s novel that aspires to kickstart a slam-bang espionage series shouldered by leading man Ryan Gosling. Their first directorial outing for Netflix (which released it in theaters this weekend ahead of its July 22 streaming bow), it’s the most expensive production in the online service’s history. Reports are that it cost upwards of $200 million. It’s a spy-vs-spy spectacular of massive shootouts, hand-to-hand skirmishes, vehicular chases and shadowy government conspiracies. Pitting Gosling’s CIA agent Sierra Six (what a name) against Chris Evans’ sociopathic mercenary Lloyd Hansen in a globe-trotting clash of wills, the Russos’ latest is a blast of big-budget summer action that’s staged with the adrenalized flair and personality that’s become their stock and trade. The Gray Man is the sort of film that’s historically been...
    HER name may mean "excitement" and "joy," but plenty of people have felt no whoopee from Whoopi Goldberg. The comedian and movie star, who joined the daytime talk show in 2007, has blazed a trail of angry and bitter feuds with newsmakers and celebrities. 8Rosie and Whoopi share an awkward hug at the opening of American Idiot on Broadway in 2010Credit: Getty 8Oprah and Whoopi reconnected in 2010Credit: HARPO And it may all be according to plan.
