Jaume Collet-Sera makes some damn enjoyable thrillers, from his directorial debut (the totally wackadoo horror flick Orphan) to his action collaborations with Liam Neeson and last year’s awesome shark movie The Shallows, the director has consistently delivered films that are entertaining and look great — though none have dealt in particularly serious subject matter. That’s about to change with Waco, an upcoming film from Zero Dark Thirty scribe Mark Boal that centers on the famous 1993 standoff in Texas between the FBI and David Koresh’s Brand Davidians.
It was the Facebook post that launched a thousand (give or take) s— fits. When the Alamo Drafthouse announced a special women-only screening of Wonder Woman, the outrage from misogynist bros was swift, immediate and entirely insane, with many bizarrely labeling the event “sexist.” But those toxic reactions didn’t quite have the intended effect and only made the screening more popular among women, spurring the Drafthouse to turn it into a national event, much to the chagrin of all those whiny sexist internet trolls — including one particularly angry man who decided it might be more effective to bypass theater management entirely and take his complaints straight to the mayor of Austin, Texas.
Don Rickles’ talents were seemingly limitless: An outrageous insult comic, a gifted dramatic actor, a welcome sight on stages and screens (big and small), and a constant presence whose career endured for decades, often surpassing his contemporaries. And now he’s gone on to join them, as the legendary Rickles passed away today, April 6, at the age of 90.
For the second year in a row, Jennifer Lawrence tops the list of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood, while the impressively prolific Dwayne Johnson has unseated Robert Downey Jr. as the highest-paid actor. Unfortunately, the highest-paid actors still earn millions more than their female counterparts, proving that Hollywood’s gender disparity problem still needs some fixing.
December still seems pretty far away, but in just eight months fans will be swarming theaters to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the franchise’s anthology film. Aside from an official cast photo and a few Instagram prop pics, we haven’t had much to go on as production has remained fairly secretive — perhaps even more so than The Force Awakens. But if you — like us — have been wondering when the first trailer for Rogue One will arrive, we officially have an answer. And it’s tomorrow morning.
Veteran actor Abe Vigoda has enjoyed a career more vast and varied than many of his fellow performers, with a resumé that spans 65 years and includes everything from masterpieces like The Godfather to classic television like Barney Miller. Vigoda has reportedly passed away today at the age of 94, leaving behind an unforgettable legacy of film and television work.
Although some in the industry had called for Chris Rock to join the boycott of the 2016 Oscars, the actor and comedian will host the show as planned — though there will be some changes. Rock has reportedly tossed out much of his material in order to address the #OscarsSoWhite controversy that’s inspired Spike Lee, Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith to boycott the ceremony, while the Academy has announced a sweeping initiative to increase diversity.
For the second year in a row, every actor nominated in all four acting categories for the Academy Awards is a white person. All 20 nominees for Best Actor and Actress and Best Supporting Actor and Actress are white people, reigniting the Twitter hashtag #OscarsSoWhite. And while many of us are comfortable in our power to merely comment via social media, there are a couple of strong voices who are fed up and ready to do something about it: director Spike Lee and actor Jada Pinkett-Smith have announced plans to boycott the Oscars this year, while the host of the 2016 awards himself has called the Academy out for their persistent negligence to nominate people of color.
John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan are two actors who are incredibly funny and just as equally capable of heart-wrenching drama, which makes them the perfect pairing for a Laurel and Hardy biopic. Reilly and Coogan will headline the upcoming film titled Stan & Ollie, a BBC Films production that centers on the final 1953 tour of the iconic comedic duo.
Last year, Forbes dubbed Adam Sandler the most overpaid actor in Hollywood with the help of some basic math skills — the publication looks at how much a studio makes for every dollar they paid their leading man. Johnny Depp came in second place in 2014, and although Sandler has had an impressively terrible year, Depp succeeded in overthrowing the former funny man and stealing his overpaid crown.
