Tarantino Knew About Weinstein's Behavior for Decades, Regrets Staying Silent

1 hour ago

After the numerous sexual harassment and assault allegations surfaced against Harvey Weinstein last week, many wondered how iconic filmmaker Quentin Tarantino would respond to these allegations, since Harvey Weinstein helped launch the director's career by releasing his breakout hit Pulp Fiction. Actress Amber Tamblyn released a brief statement last week from Quentin Tarantino, stating he has been, "stunned and heartbroken" about everything that has come to light, and that he would need a few more days to process his pain before addressing it further.

Now the filmmaker is speaking out, revealing that he has known about The Weinstein Company co-founder's sexual predatory behavior for several decades, saying he's ashamed he didn't take a stronger stand against Harvey Weinstein. Here's what the director had to say in a new interview with The New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor, one of the journalists who broke the original story.

"I knew enough to do more than I did. »

Nycc's Last Jedi Experience Video Takes Fans Inside Star Wars 8

2 hours ago

Earlier this month, Disney showcased Star Wars: The Last Jedi at New York Comic Con, with a special display where fans got to see a number of items from the movie, but these fans had no idea what they were really getting themselves into. A new video debuted today that showed how Disney and LucasFilm set up a number of hidden cameras throughout the area, with a few lucky fans getting singled out as "Resistance spies." What starts out as just your average convention display turns into an exciting interactive experience, with a few surprise appearances.

The behind-the-scenes crew is seen singling out a few fans in attendance at this display, when they're given quite the surprise, as a number of these displays post their photos, revealing that they're all "wanted" by the First Order. At that point, some of the Stormtroopers start combing the area looking for these wanted Resistance spies, »

What Scares David Fincher Most About Directing a Star Wars Movie?

2 hours ago

Can you imagine what a David Fincher Star Wars movie would look like? It turns out, Lucasfilm wanted to know, but it's never going to happen. That's right, David Fincher did indeed meet with Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy at one point about directing a Star Wars movie, but he passed on the opportunity because it scared him. Here's what he had to say about it.

"No, I talked to [producer Kathleen Kennedy] about that and look, it's a plum assignment. I don't know what's worse: being George Lucas on the set of the first one where everyone's going, 'Alderaan? What the hell is this?' Where everyone's making fun, but I can't imagine the kind of intestinal fortitude one has to have following up the success of these last two. That's a whole other level. One is that you have to endure the withering abuse of Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, and the »

Shia Labeouf Gets Sent to Anger Management After Racist Run-In with Cops

3 hours ago

Back in July, actor Shia Labeouf was arrested for being drunk and disorderly in public in Savannah, Georgia. Labeouf has now just reached a plea agreement stemming from the arrest in Georgia, agreeing to undergo anger management counseling, as well as 30 days of mandatory drug counseling. The actor was arrested after getting angry in front of a restaurant and using foul language in front of families while drunk. A police officer walked up and asked him to leave the scene, but Shia Labeouf decided to get aggressive with the officer instead.

When the cop tried to arrest him, Labeouf got the wise idea to finally flee the scene, after the cop had asked him to leave several times, but apparently the damage had already been done. The actor took off in a sprint to a nearby hotel where he was arrested in the lobby while he continued to be "unruly" and shouting about paying taxes. »

Avengers 4 to Be Russo Brother's Final Marvel Movie?

3 hours ago

Marvel's Avengers 4 will be the final Marvel Phase 3 movie. Phase 4 kicks off just a few months later with Spider-Man: Homecoming 2, set amid the aftermath of this epic story. Marvel has been quite tight-lipped about their plans for Marvel Phase 4, aside from confirming both Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, since even the other Phase 4 movie titles will serve as spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. Today another interesting wrinkle was possibly unearthed, with Josh Brolin hinting in a new interview that the Russo Brothers may be done with the McU after Avengers 4.

Josh Brolin has been doing press for his new movie Only the Brave, where he revealed these new Avengers 4 details, and it may not be terribly surprising that the directors may want a break from the McU after this experience. The plan was originally to shoot both Avengers 3 and 4 back-to-back, but that was ultimately scrapped, »

Thor: Ragnarok Scores 100% on Rotten Tomatoes

4 hours ago

Marvel is having themselves one heck of a year. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 crushed it at the box office this summer, and Spider-Man: Homecoming successfully brought a solo Spidey adventure to the McU, which also made a lot of money. Next up? Thor: Ragnarok, which looks to finally deliver a great solo Thor movie. The first round of reviews have just been released and, rather impressively, the movie has a 100 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes so far with 34 reviews counted. Here's what Variety had to say about it.

"Thor: Ragnarok is easily the best of the three Thor movies, or maybe I just think so because its screenwriters and I finally seem to agree on one thing: The Thor movies are preposterous."

Thus far, the Thor solo movies haven't been as great as many of the other solo movies in the McU, but people have always loved »

When Will We Finally See Doctor Strange 2?

4 hours ago

Just by virtue of a movie being in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it already has a good chance of being a success. But Doctor Strange wound up exceeding expectations last year and became a bigger hit than most expected. So, the assumption has been that we'll get Doctor Strange 2 at some point, but the movie has yet to be confirmed. Now, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has teased that Doctor Strange 2 is coming during the next phase of the McU.

Kevin Feige, who is the engine that drives Marvel Studios, is currently making the press rounds for Thor: Ragnarok, a movie that just so happens to feature Benedict Cumberbatch reprising his role as Doctor Strange. Feige was asked about what Marvel has planned for 2020 and beyond, after Phase 3 of the McU wraps up and, while he didn't outright confirm it, he did tease that Doctor Strange 2 is something they're working on. »

Thor Humiliates Loki in Hilarious New Ragnarok Clip

4 hours ago

Marvel Studios has released a new clip from Thor: Ragnarok, as we get closer and closer to the November 3 release date. This new scene features a tender moment between Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston), which shows there may be hope yet for the villainous Loki to redeem himself. After this touching moment between the brothers in an elevator on Sakaar, Thor comes up with a classic plan for their supposed escape, which Loki finds totally humiliating.

While there isn't much revealed about this scene, it opens while both Thor and Loki are riding in an elevator, with Thor still in his gladiator attire, presumably as they're both trying to get off of Sakaar. After telling his brother Loki that he always "thought the world" of him, adding that he always hoped they'd spend the rest of their lives together fighting side-by-side, Thor explains that he came »

Infinity War Is a Next Level, Godfather-Like Epic Promises Thanos Actor

5 hours ago

Thanos has been teased in the McU ever since he made an appearance back in 2012 in The Avengers and later in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1, but his presence has mostly been a shadowy one until now. Avengers: Infinity War is putting all of the cards on the table in a 10-year culmination for the McU. While many have yet to see Josh Brolin as Thanos, fans that were lucky enough to catch the short teaser of footage at the D23 Expo and San Diego Comic-Con have been raving about watching the Mad Titan throw a planet. And now Brolin himself is claiming that Thanos is "next level" in Infinity War.

All eyes are certainly on Josh Brolin to step up to the plate and play the ultimate big bad in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after a string of awesome villains from Kurt Russell's Ego in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 »

Robert Englund Says He's Too Old to Play Freddy Krueger Again

7 hours ago

When it comes to horror movies, A Nightmare on Elm Street is definitely on the Mount Rushmore of the genre, featuring one of the biggest horror villains ever. Freddy Krueger is a legend and he has been portrayed by Robert Englund in nearly every movie. But sadly, it looks like the actor has given up on the thought of ever revisiting the horror classic. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Robert Englund confirmed that he will never play Freddy Krueger on the big screen again.

It's hard to believe, but Robert Englund is 70-years old and just doesn't think that he can pull off playing Freddy anymore. Freddy Krueger is a physically demanding character and Englund doesn't think that his body, specifically his back and spine, can handle it at his age. He had this to say.

"I'm too old to do another Freddy now. If I do a »

Pennywise Actor Teases It 2 Plans, Calls It Actively Different

It was always expected to be a hit, but the Stephen King adaptation has become one of the biggest blockbusters of the year. There were also pretty much always plans for a second movie, but given the success, It 2 has become a top priority for New Line. Bill Skarsgard will be returning to the role of Pennywise the clown and, in a recent interview, he revealed a little bit about what we can expect to see in the sequel, and a little bit of what he hopes will happen. Here's what he had to say about it.

"The first movie worked so well at what it is trying to do, I think, and ultimately that is the kids' story, and you follow these kids and you sort of fall in love with these kids. And the second one will be the adult story. And I think the right way to »

Why John Carpenter Refuses to Watch His Old Movies

7 hours ago

John Carpenter is a horror icon and has given us some of the best movies that the genre has to offer, so why can't he watch any of his old movies? Apparently, the man behind Halloween and Big Trouble in Little China can't sit back and see what we all see when we're watching one of his great movies. As it turns out, Carpenter's decision to not watch any of his old projects makes a lot of sense and seems to be the same reason that musicians don't listen to their work and actors don't like to watch themselves on screen.

In a recent interview with the Guardian, John Carpenter explained that he stays away from his old movies after being asked if he ever watches them. It's too agonizing for him as he only sees the mistakes and it brings him back to some of the stressful times »

Tyler Perry's Acrimony Trailer Sends Taraji P. Henson Into a Rampage

8 hours ago

Lionsgate has released the first trailer for Acrimony, the new film from director Tyler Perry, along with the new poster and first look photo featuring stars Taraji P. Henson and Lyriq Bent as the married couple Melinda and Robert. For those expecting a wacky Tyler Perry comedy, you won't find that here, with the director taking a turn into thriller territory with this tale of marital strife that is much, much darker than the filmmaker's Madea comedies, but it remains to be seen how audiences will react to this type of movie from the acclaimed director.

Acrimony centers on a faithful wife (Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson), tired of standing by her devious husband (Lyriq Bent), becomes enraged when it becomes clear she has been betrayed. The trailer takes us back to the beginning of their relationship, when a young Melinda (Ajiona Alexus) first meets a young Robert (Antonio Madison »

Star Wars 9 Will Unite All Three Trilogies

8 hours ago

J.J. Abrams managed to successfully reintroduce the Star Wars franchise to the masses with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He took a little break to let Rian Johnson come in and direct Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but he's coming back for Star Wars 9 and he's got some big ideas. He and screenwriter Chris Terrio are working on the screenplay, and apparently, this is the movie that "unites all three trilogies" together. Here's what a Reddit user had to say after a recent encounter with both Abrams and Terrio.

"They said that they're going to be brave and there will be big surprises. I got the impression that Jj felt like he had to refresh previous Star Wars moments for a modern audience in Tfa, and now it feels like they have free reign to do what they want. Apparently they've had no interference from Kathleen or Pablo or the Lucasfilm Story Group. »

Netflix's Jim and Andy Trailer Has Carrey Possessed by Kaufman

8 hours ago

Netflix has released the first trailer for Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond, which will premiere globally on the streaming service Friday, November 17. While that's also the same day that Justice League hits theaters nationwide, this documentary won't exactly appeal to superhero fanboys, but for those who follow comedy lore, it's certainly shaping up to be a must-see film. This trailer comes just a month after Netflix acquired this Jim Carrey and Andy Kaufman documentary at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it had its world premiere screening.

Director Chris Smith presents a fascinating deep dive into actor Jim Carrey's time spent portraying famed and complicated comedian Andy Kaufman. Using approximately 100 hours of footage shot on the set of Man on the Moon documenting Carrey's transformation into Kaufman for four months, the new trailer for this Netflix documentary features interview footage with Jim Carrey in present day, who reveals that Universal Pictures, »

Terminator 6 Begins Shooting in Spring 2018

9 hours ago

After the disappointment that was Terminator: Genisys, it was pretty hard to imagine a scenario that would excite fans about another movie in the franchise. But somehow, here we are. Terminator 6, which sees the return of Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, is set to begin filming in March of next year. Arnold Schwarzenegger had previously indicated this would be the case, but now it's been confirmed. Things are moving right along with the sequel, which means that pre-production appears to be going smoothly.

Deadpool director Tim Miller has been tapped to helm Terminator 6, but perhaps most importantly, James Cameron, who created the franchise and directed the first two installments, is on board as an executive producer. And he's been very involved in the process. Filming on the new Terminator movie is said to be taking place in several locations around Europe, including Budapest, Hungary and Spain.

Longtime Weinstein Collaborator Calls Out Hollywood: Everybody Knew

10 hours ago

Scott Rosenberg, a Hollywood producer and screenwriter of movies such as Beautiful Girls, Gone in 60 Seconds, and High Fidelity, wrote a long piece about his old friend and collaborator, Harvey Weinstein. In the long scathing essay, Rosenberg called out everybody in the entertainment business for knowing about his sexual predatory behavior for years and never saying anything. The screenwriter/producer also took time out to apologize for being complicit during all of these years in what has become a major headline across the world over the last few weeks.

Scott Rosenberg took to Facebook earlier this week to not only condemn Harvey Weinstein's behavior, but also call out the entertainment industry for knowing about Weinstein's misconduct for decades, himself included. While Rosenberg claims that people didn't know about heavier accusations, he claims that everybody knew about Harvey Weinstein's aggressive behavior while stating he knew because everybody reportedly talked about it together. »
