Venice: New Films by George Clooney, Guillermo Del Toro, Stephen Frears Expected to World Premiere (Exclusive)
Rome – George Clooney’s “Suburbicon,” Guillermo Del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” Stephen Frears’ “Victoria and Abdul,” and Paolo Virzi’s “Ella and John,” starring Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland, are among the titles strongly tipped to world premiere at the upcoming 74th Venice Film Festival.

There’s also certainty over the absence of some titles – especially “Blade Runner 2049” and Darren Aronofsky’s “Mother!”, both high-profile movies that had been considered as possibilities.

John Boyega Slams ‘Game of Thrones’ For Lack of Diversity: ‘There Are No Black People’
“There are no black people on ‘Game of Thrones.’ You don’t see one black person in ‘Lord of the Rings,'” Boyega said in a recent interview with GQ. “I ain’t paying money to always see one type of person on-screen. Because you see different people from different backgrounds, different cultures, every day. Even if you’re a racist, you have to live with that. We can ruffle up some feathers.”

We Saw 4 Minutes of Netflix’s ‘The Punisher,’ and He Killed 3 People
Comic-Con attendees saw the first-ever footage from Marvel’s upcoming “The Punisher” in Hall H Friday night, and if you were hoping the show would be “What if ‘Death Wish’ had fewer mustaches, and also super heroes,” you’re in luck.
