American adaptations of successful foreign films will never go out of style (though it’s always a crapshoot as to whether they’ll actually be any good or not). German Oscar contender Toni Erdmann is getting an American remake, courtesy of Kristen Wiig and Jack Nicholson, and now A Man Called Ove, the bestselling Swedish book adapted last year by Hannes Holm (and nominated for two Academy Awards), is getting remade courtesy of one Tom Hanks.
Jake LaMotta, the boxer dubbed the “Bronx Bull” and immortalized by Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese in Raging Bull, has died at the age of 95. LaMotta passed away Tuesday in a nursing home, members of his family told TMZ, from complications from pneumonia, his wife said.
It is the adrenaline rush the box office sorely needed after a summer that could accurately be described as “pretty bad” — the new take on Stephen King’s doorstop of a novel is the best horror opening ever, the highest single-day box office for an R-rated movie, the lowest-budgeted movie to gross over $100 million in its opening weekend, and now it’s the biggest opening for a September movie in history.
There’s a lot more action coming i this Wednesday’s new trailer for Jumanji, and The Rock has done us all a favor of posting a teaser with all the best bits. Motorcycles! Piggyback rides! A giant hippopotamus! Jack Black saying “I can’t even”!
Harry Dean Stanton, accomplished actor, musician, and singer, has died at 91 years old. He starred in almost too many films to name, from Pretty in Pink to Repo Man, to Cool Hand Luke, Alien, Escape From New York, and Wild at Heart, and was beloved by fellow actors, directors, and critics alike.
Ah, the holidays. Cookies, sparkly lights, Christmas trees, your parents leaving you at home with a hot babysitter you decide to impress by whacking her ex boyfriend over the head with a baseball bat… You know, the usual wholesome stuff you get up to during the Christmas season, at least according to the Better Watch Out Red-Band trailer.
John Wick is back again… again. Keanu Reeves’ immortal hitman will come out of retirement once more in John Wick: Chapter Three, which Lionsgate has officially announced will hit theaters May 17, 2019.
Paint It Black, based on Janet Fitch’s novel, stars Alia Shawkat as an artist whose hard-partying ways come to a halt after her boyfriend dies and his terrifying mother, Janet McTeer, blames her for his death. It’s the kind of pulpy, Hitchcockian film you don’t see much of these days, and the trailer looks incredible.
Tyrese Gibson has taken to posting (and the deleting) pleas on social media for Dwayne Johnson not to leave the Fast and Furious franchise like a lovestruck ex. At least, that’s what everyone figures is going on, because there is clearly something going on between the two. Tyrese Gibson has been commenting and the deleting messages to The Rock on his Instagram posts, and today posted an Instagram himself, along with a plea for Johnson to call him back.
With this morning’s news that Lucasfilm has its eye on J.J. Abrams to return and complete the new Star Wars trilogy after Colin Trevorrow’s exit, the question still remains: Will another studio ever hire a female director to helm a movie in one of their huge franchises? Patty Jenkins did pretty well for herself with Wonder Woman, and Captain Marvel will be co-directed by a man and a woman, but so far none of the other franchises have decided to — and I’m using sarcasm here — take such a big risk. With the twenty-fifth James Bond movie on the horizon, will the studio go with a female director for the first time? Producer Barbara Broccoli says anything is possible.
