6 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Musical biopics are notoriously difficult to make, usually because it involves getting tangled web of parties — the artist’s estate, music rights holders, and more — to all get on the same creative page. However, Elton John is clearing up any such potential dust-ups by producing his own biopic “Rocketman.” That said, locking down a leading man isn’t always easy, and the film has made a switcheroo.

A few years back, Tom Hardy was the eye-brow raising choice to play Elton John, but he’s now been replaced by “Kingsman: The Secret Service” star Taron Egerton.

6 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

While Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is expected to win this weekend's box-office battle, the big question is whether the critically acclaimed World War II epic can clear $40 million in its U.S. landing.

War dramas have never been known for big openings, although Nolan — the mastermind behind the blockbuster Dark Knight trilogy — is a powerful brand unto himself.

Warner Bros., Nolan's home studio, is projecting a domestic debut in the $35 million-$40 million range. Most box-office observers believe Dunkirk will come in on the higher end, while some think it has a shot of doing »

Netflix Is Not the Problem: Why Bad Theatrical Presentations Are Destroying the Experience

33 minutes ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Watching a 70mm print of “Dunkirk” at Lincoln Center’s glorious Walter Reade theater was enough to make me want to pick up the baton and join Christopher Nolan’s fight to preserve the theatrical experience. Earlier this week, Nolan railed against Netflix in an interview with IndieWire, citing the company’s “mindless policy” with respect to theatrical distribution, and after seeing how the director masterfully envelopes the audience into his WWII drama, it’s hard to disagree with idea that this great director’s work belongs on the big screen.

Elusive and reclusive during his lifetime, author J.D. Salinger is proving to be just the same after his death. Despite a high profile documentary (“Salinger“), and one indie drama (“Coming Through The Rye“), no one has really unlocked the enigma of the highly influential author. But it’s not without trying, as another movie is coming hoping to offer some insight to the man who created Holden Caulfield and the Glass family.

Darren Aronofsky Defends Hollywood to a Skeptical Alejandro Jodorowsky

59 minutes ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Alejandro Jodorowsky is a big fan of Darren Aronofsky, but that doesn’t mean he agrees with the “Black Swan” director’s faith in Hollywood. Though the two filmmakers essentially fawned over each other for much of their nearly one-hour conversation on a recent episode of the Talkhouse’s podcast, Jodorowsky never wavered on his contempt for Hollywood.

The 88-year-old filmmaker sat for the interview in part to discuss his 2016 film “Endless Poetry,” which played at last year’s Cannes Film Festival and hit U.S. theaters last week. The film is an autobiographical story of the Chilean artist’s youth, specifically his introduction to the bohemian artistic circle of ’40s Chile. “Endless Poetry” played in two theaters over the weekend, taking in $27,000, and has nationwide release in the upcoming weeks.

Tobin Bell‘s twisted character Jigsaw, aka John Kramer, died in 2006’s Saw III, but his impact is still being felt ten years after the events of 2010’s now-incorrectly-named Saw: The Final Chapter.

How ‘Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party’ Became a Joint Effort to Make the World a Better Place

1 hour ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Chalk it up to chemistry, the perfect recipe, or secret sauce. Whatever the magic is that happens between Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart, viewers lap it up on “Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party.”

Premiering one day before the 2016 presidential election, VH1’s hybrid cooking show-celebrity hangout became a safe haven for those afraid that Trump’s America would create even more marginalized groups and divisions. Instead, “Potluck Dinner Party” envisions a world where homemaking meets hip-hop and “A Good Thing” lives in harmony with “Nuthin’ But a G Thang.” Martha and Snoop’s friendship and natural camaraderie became a model for the world we wanted to live in.
