  • Stephen King Stands Up for ‘Doctor Sleep’ Amid Box Office Flop, Possible $30 Million Loss

    One week after “Motherless Brooklyn” disappointed the box office, Warner Bros. has yet another flop in the form of “Doctor Sleep.” The Mike Flanagan-directed horror film based on Stephen King’s “The Shining” sequel was tracking for a debut in the $25 million range, but its opening weekend came in well below that mark with a dismal $14 million total. While “Doctor Sleep’s” $50 million production is a saving grace, Deadline reports the film is expected to lose between $20 million and $30 million for Warner Bros. “Doctor Sleep” now joins “The Goldfinch,” “Gemini Man,” and “Terminator: Dark Fate” as one...
  • Stephen King Calls the Trump Presidency ‘Scarier’ Than Any of His Novels — Watch

    With “Midsommar” earning raves and performing well at the box office, horror has never been hotter. And if, as Justin Chang argued in the Los Angeles Times back in 2017, horror has become the defining genre of the Trump presidency, then Stephen King is its patron saint. The master of horror’s many works have seen renewed interest thanks to a slew of successful adaptations, from the box office record-breaker “It,” to its much-hyped follow-up “It: Chapter Two,” and many more projects currently in the works. And while the master of horror certainly is the king of scary set-ups, he says...

    Roger Waters tells Richard Branson to ‘back off’ over Venezuela in bizarre dispute over benefit concert Pink Floyd rocker Roger Waters has warned Richard Branson to “back off” over efforts to raise money for humanitarian aid in Venezuela with a Live Aid-style concert, telling the entrepreneur that it has “nothing to do with their needs.” Waters’ pointed criticism at his countryman comes as Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, says he is hoping to raise $100 million on Friday for people suffering in the South American country, which is currently undergoing a leadership and economic crisis with the regime of...

    [PHOTO] Like the horror classic called, “A Portrait Of Dorian Gray,” current photos of Stephen King seem to reveal a more and more frightful person. If his hair were a little longer he could look terrifyingly like somebody’s granny. Actually, he maybe looks more like a chimp. [PHOTO] A lot of the things King says, seem as dumb to me as any chimp might say; if chimps could talk. Especially when this overinflated writer of horror, neuroses, and mental illness bloviates on political topics, his utter ignorance rises like a giant sac of hot air. We see hot air balloons...

    Creepy horror story writer Stephen King promised an electoral horror show for Maine's Republican Senator Susan Collins if she votes to confirm Brett Kavanaugh as Supreme Court justice. King's prediction came in the form of a tweet he posted on Saturday. This comes as no real surprise since King has a track record of really hating Donald Trump.  First a look at his tweet threat followed by a trip into the dark recesses of King's mind.

    Former NFL player Martellus Bennett slammed President Trump for his ongoing criticism of football athletes’ protests during the national anthem. "It's the easiest way for him to attack the culture of black people," Bennett said in an interview with the Bleacher Report. "He sees the black athlete as someone that black people look up to,” Bennett continued. “So he thinks you can attack black culture by attacking black NFL players.” "Also, attacking black players helps him with his base. I think, too, maybe there's no rhyme or reason. Maybe he's just an asshole,” added Bennett, who won a Super Bowl...

    Horror novelist Stephen King is going viral again with yet another slam against President Donald Trump. Trump is visiting the United Kingdom later this week after a NATO summit in Brussels, and is expected to be greeted by protests complete with a 20-foot “Trump baby” in a diaper blimp floating overhead. The best-selling writer tweeted: (TWEET-AT-LINK) King has been a frequent Trump critic on Twitter....

    Harlan Ellison, one of the most influential sci-fi writers of the twentieth century, passed away today in his sleep. He was 84 years old. Christine Valada, the widow of the late Len Wein and a friend of Harlan and his wife Susan, officially announced the author’s passing on Twitter. “Susan Ellison has asked me to announce the passing of writer Harlan Ellison, in his sleep, earlier today,” Valada wrote. “For a brief time I was here, and for a brief time, I mattered.”—HE, 1934-2018. Arrangements for a celebration of his life are pending.

    Hollywood star Ben Affleck has revealed he keeps guns at home after his actress wife Jennifer Garner was harassed by a crazed stalker. The 40-year-old actor and director, whose new film Argo is attracting Oscar buzz, admits to owning several guns which he keeps on hand at the $17.5 million mansion he shares with Jennifer, also 40, and their three young children in California's Pacific Palisades. Affleck said that after Jennifer’s stalker, Steven Burky, was arrested in December 2009, it ‘gave me a stronger sense of feeling protective about my family.' He told the Hollywood Reporter that he goes skeet...

    Hollywood stars Ben Affleck and Matt Damon and their pregnant wives turned up at a Miami fundraiser for presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Barrack Obama on Saturday. Both the couples attended the orientation at club 'Set' to pledge their support for Obama. According to reports, the actors also delivered speeches from the stage. "Jennifer Garner gave the first speech supporting Obama, and she was very witty, clever and funny," Peoples Magazine quoted a source as saying. "She was followed by her husband Ben, then Matt Damon. The men gave serious political speeches on how the country needs change," the source said....

    As NewsBuster Geoffrey Dickens has noted, Ben Affleck appeared on yesterday evening's edition of Hardball. And while it's true that the actor/director/Dem activist offered a generally innocuous analysis, he did manage to engage in a bit of religious bigotry. Affleck's foul foray arose in the course of his discussion of the way the various Republican candidates have dealt with the issue of evolution and creationism. Talk turned to the former governor of Arkansas. BEN AFFLECK: I think Huckabee actually framed his position in a much less dramatic way than had been made out. Which was he said it could...

    If you had any questions about how antiwar liberals were going to respond when the Democrats didn't withdraw American troops from Iraq like they promised during the 2006 campaign, you got your answers last night on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher." When the host moved the discussion to what the panel thought of "the Democrats, you know, caving in on this Iraq spending bill," actor Ben Affleck went on a tirade about these "f***ing people," saying that the "Democrats live in fear of basically, you know, being called cowards" and of "looking like p***ies." Affleck concluded his attack on his...

    What do you do when you're a fat, washed up actor who could never act, is tired of waxing your back, and now can't attract movie-goers? Oh, and you can no longer attract media attention as Mr. J-Lo a/k/a Ben-Lo? Well, if you're Ben Affleck, you become a reporter for ABC News. Affleck has been hired by the network news division to shoot a "documentary" (sounds like Michael Moore, only not as fat . . . yet) for "Nightline," the ABC's latenight news show. Yup, sadly, I had to "read" the July 14, 2008 issue of Us Magazine to learn...

    Oh. Well, my mistake then. Yesterday I thought he was saying something racist.What did this guy think his critics were accusing him of, if this is his “clarification”? A few fans have written wondering whether I intended to utter a racist remark by referring to Justice Thomas as a “clown in blackface.”“Blackface” is a lesser known theatrical term for a white actor who blackens his face to play a black buffoon. In traditional theater lingo, and in my view and intent, that is not racist. It is instead part of a racist history in this country.I feel Justice Thomas...

    Via the Free Beacon, I think it was Dan McLaughlin of Red State who tweeted after last week’s SSM decision was released, “Now the contest begins to see who’ll be the angriest winner.” His point was that, for a movement that’s been unstoppable culturally over the past 10 years, there’s a curiously strong impulse towards nastiness in some lefties’ reaction to each new victory. With this remark from George Takei, I think it’s safe to say the contest is now over. Takei’s overreacting to a point Thomas made in response to Kennedy’s idea that state recognition of gay marriage is...
  • George Takei's Racist Rant: Clarence Thomas Is a 'Clown in Black Face'

    George Takei unleashed a racist rant against Clarence Thomas, sneering that the Supreme Court justice is a "clown in blackface." The Star Trek actor on Monday fumed, "[Thomas] is a clown in blackface sitting on the Supreme Court. He gets me that angry. He doesn't belong there." Talking to a local Fox affiliate in Phoenix, Takei snarled that the second African American on the Supreme Court is unqualified: "This man does not belong on the Supreme Court. He is an embarrassment. He is a disgrace to America."

    Face it, George Clooney sucks By Kyle Smith It’s time for Hollywood to face facts: George Clooney is not a star. If you matched them up head-to-head, Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson would crush him — and I don’t just mean literally. Clooney’s latest is the gargantuan flop “Tomorrowland” — a $190 million bomb (not including $100 million or so in worldwide marketing costs) that looks like it’s going to gross a little more than half of that at the North American box office. It’s delicately being referred to as an underperformer because no one in Hollywood wants to hurt the...
