    Tom Cruise has shelled out “huge sums” for two high-tech robots to enforce coronavirus safety protocols on the set of “Mission: Impossible 7” – and also administer spot tests to the crew, according to a report. “Tom is so serious about making sure the shoot isn’t shut down that he’s splashed out on these robots as he can’t be everywhere to ensure people are behaving themselves,” a source on the set told The Sun. Shooting resumes this week in the UK before the production heads to Dubai, the source said. The 58-year-old megastar — who recently blew up at two...

    John McCain will be the subject of an upcoming biopic about his life and decades-long career in politics. Stampede Ventures has optioned rights to “The Luckiest Man: Life With John McCain,” a biography written by the late Arizona senator’s political adviser and friend Mark Salter, and plans to adapt it into a feature film. Salter is co-writing the script with television producer Craig Turk (“The Good Wife,” “FBI”). The film is being made with support from McCain’s family. His widow, Cindy McCain, will serve as an executive producer. “John’s story is one of incredible heroism, of serving causes greater than...
  • 10 best period dramas of all time: From Downton Abbey to Pride and Prejudice

    There is something comforting about a period drama. Perhaps it's the escapism we're afforded by looking into an era we don't live in, or the aesthetic that's unfamiliar to our own - or maybe it's the lavish production that often accompanies period pieces, offering endless hours of dreaming and distraction. Whatever the reason for their appeal, costume dramas continue to beguile contemporary audiences, as proven with the recent popularity of Shonda Rhimes' Bridgerton.

    For the first time ever, China supplanted North America as the world's top moviegoing market. Yet no country was spared as global box office revenue likely tumbled more than 72 percent, including a 70 percent dip in the Middle Kingdom. It's official: North American box office revenue plummeted 80 percent in 2020 amid the novel coronavirus pandemic and unprecedented theater closures, while global revenue tumbled more than 70 percent.
  • Tom Hanks’s ‘News Of The World’ Takes A Minimalist Approach To The Western

    The Federalist ^ | December 28, 2020 | Josh Shepherd
    Beautifully shot yet muted as a drama, ‘News of the World’ brings the post-Civil War Southwest to life in the unlikely journey of a lost girl and a jaded veteran who helps her find home. Ten years ago, auteur filmmaker brothers Joel and Ethan Coen brought a surprisingly sincere revisionist Western to the big screen over Christmas weekend. Out last weekend in theaters, “News of the World” offers a similar throwback film without quite the edge or mass appeal. The Coens’ 2010 take on “True Grit,” a remake of the John Wayne classic, followed a grizzled U.S. Marshal (Jeff Bridges)...

    Amidst all the filth, vulgarity, profanity, sexuality and political correctness (in which the former is not evil but not affirming LGBTQ is) there some pretty good Christian and family films that you can see for free. Tubit is an American ad-supported streaming service owned by Fox Corporation and has been around for a while providing licensed content, and has some gems among the refuse that is to be refused (best to search under appropriate category) and requires no sign up for videos here, although a few short video ads interrupt. The list of movies below is not exhaustive, but most...

    Now that coronavirus vaccines are starting to roll out in the US and abroad, many people may be dreaming of the day when they can travel, shop and go to the movies again. But in order to do those activities, you may eventually need something in addition to the vaccine: a vaccine passport application. Several companies and technology groups have begun developing smartphone apps or systems for individuals to upload details of their Covid-19 tests and vaccinations, creating digital credentials that could be shown in order to enter concert venues, stadiums, movie theaters, offices, or even countries. The Common Trust...

    ScifiScribe ^ | 12/25/2020 | Richard Paolinelli
    Back in 2017 when Wonder Woman came out my first reaction was that DC needed to give Patty Jenkins the keys to their movie-making department and let her run all of the franchises. That movie was that good. I’ve just finished watching Wonder Woman 1984. My first reaction? We should take those keys back.
  • Gal Gadot Responds to ‘Whitewashing’ Backlash After ‘Cleopatra’ Casting

    Gal Gadot has defended her casting as Cleopatra after she was met with accusations of “whitewashing” the upcoming biopic. Critics have said that an Arab or African actress should play the role of the iconic Egyptian leader instead of the 35-year-old Israeli actress. “First of all, if you want to be true to the facts, then Cleopatra was Macedonian,” Gadot told BBC Arabic. “We were looking for a Macedonian actress that could fit Cleopatra. She wasn’t there. And I was very passionate about Cleopatra.”

    What are your favorite Christmas movies? Please include heartwarming family-friendly movies even if they are not specifically Christmas-oriented. I would include a recent classic, Christmas Oranges, and favorites from better eras like The Bishop's Wife, Christmas in Connecticut, Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Carol, Its A Wonderful Life, Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, Frosty The Snowman, and A Charlie Brown Christmas. What would you add to that list?

    Actor Antonio Sabato, Jr. is teaming up with singer Kaya Jones and other entertainment figures to create ConFlix Studios with the goal of producing films with conservative, pro-America themes. “We are patriots who want to keep going and support our country, support our law enforcement, support the history of our country, the Constitution, the flag, our soldiers, and so much more,” Antonio Sabato, Jr. told The Kyle Olson Show this week. Sabato Jr., whose acting career spans 30 years, with years-spanning appearances in General Hospital and more than 150 episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful, argued that the entertainment...

  • 5 Long-Term Takeaways From Disney’s Big Plans For Future Shows

    The Federalist ^ | December 18, 2020 | Joseph Shepherd
    When Disney announced 52 upcoming films and series, Hollywood press, movie fans, and even Wall Street ate up the hype. Here’s an overview of the big takeaways. In recent days, trading on Disney’s stock hit record highs, a short-term indicator the company succeeded with their much-hyped presentation of upcoming films and shows. But the long-term outcome is a more complex story. After all, over the past year, Disney laid off more than 30,000 employees (mostly related to still-closed theme parks) and streaming video platforms have not yet proven the profit potential of theatrical releases. Over a four-hour unveiling that resembled...

    Cosmic Book News ^ | December 15, 2020 | Matt McGloin
    It's confirmed that Wonder Woman 1984 is an anti-Donald Trump movie, which is something I've said about the movie for a while now.And I'm guessing that is the real reason "they" wanted it released in December and didn't want to wait until next June where "they" said the June release would be stale, which is because WW84 is getting released during the election.The confirmation Wonder Woman 1984 is anti-Trump comes from the reviews for the movie that are now out as press screenings were held and the press are allowed to post reviews.In their Wonder Woman 1984 review, Collider offers...

    The Library of Congress has unveiled its annual list of 25 movies to make the cut for the National Film Registry. The selection this year, considered among America’s most influential motion pictures, includes such titles as Christopher Nolan’s 2008 The Dark Knight; DreamWorks Animation’s Shrek, 1978 summer musical smash Grease and 1980 John Belushi/Dan Aykroyd comedy The Blues Brothers. The list also notably shines a spotlight this year on diverse stories and filmmakers including Wayne Wang’s 1993 The Joy Luck Club; 1963’s Lilies Of The Field, for which Sidney Poitier became the first African American to win the Oscar for...

    Hollywood Reporter ^ | December 14, 2020 | Pamela McClintock
    Due to the pandemic, thousands of cinemas in North America have been dark for the better part of nine months, while those that have reopened are operating at dramatically reduced capacity. Mid-December is usually a launching pad for yuletide-fueled holiday blockbusters. That isn't the case this year as Hollywood and theater owners grapple with the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and a virtual nine-month standstill in moviegoing that will result in the worst showing for domestic ticket sales in at least four decades. Case in point: There were no new wide releases at the North American box office over the Dec. 11-13...
