This will also be Kelly’s first television interview since she parted ways with NBC in January after making comments about blackface and Halloween.

    There’s a new documentary film out called “The Rise of Jordan Peterson.” But since the film was released late last month, the filmmakers have had a very hard time getting anyone to show it. Today the Stranger reports the cancelations are being driven by complaints about the content and, in some cases, by threats against would-be exhibitors: About halfway through my conversation with filmmakers Patricia Marcoccia and Maziar Ghaderi, they got two pieces of bad news. First, they found out from their tour manager that a planned screening of their film, The Rise of Jordan Peterson, had just been...

    ABC News aired a video on Sunday that host Tom Llamas said depicted a Turkish attack in northern Syria against Kurdish civilians. Turkey is indeed pushing into Syria and slaughtering Kurds along the way, but the video ABC News played last night is from a military gun demonstration in Kentucky that was published to YouTube in 2017. “This video, right here, appearing to show Turkey’s military bombing Kurd civilians in a Syrian border town,” Llamas said on the October 13 broadcast as the video played.

    Globally, 'Joker' has collected a staggering $544 million. Meanwhile at the specialty box office, 'Parasite' scored the biggest location average in three years with $125,421. Todd Phillips' Joker is laughing all the way to the bank, earning an outstanding $55 million in its sophomore weekend for a 10-day domestic total of $192.7 million and a massive global haul of $543.9 million. Joker easily remained at No. 1, although MGM and United Artists Releasing's early Halloween family pic The Addams Family came in a strong No. 2 with $30.3 million, ahead of expectations and more than enough to bury Ang Lee's...

    This column was prompted by readers of last week's. As you'll recall, we marked the centenary of Donald Pleasence by celebrating his definitive cinematic Blofeld. That of course prompted some comment about his other roles. Chris Hall, everyone's favorite Macedonian Content Farmer, writes: Donald Pleasence was not only an excellent Blofeld, but he and Jim Garner basically stole The Great Escape from Steve McQueen and Richard Attenborough. To which Calvert Whitehurst, a Steyn Club First Week Founding Member from Virginia, adds: The male bonding (if I may use that word) between James Garner and Donald Pleasence in The Great Escape....

    “Pose” star Billy Porter is in negotiations to join Camila Cabello in Sony’s reimagined musical version of “Cinderalla.” If the deal goes through, Porter will play Cinderella’s fairy godmother. Sony had no comment. Cabello came on to the project in April with “Blockers” director Kay Cannon attached to helm and pen the script. Cabello will be involved in the music for the project, which grew out of an original idea from James Corden. The film will be produced by Corden and Leo Pearlman through their Fulwell73 banner. The new “Cinderella” will be a music-oriented version of the traditional tale of...

    I just saw this talked about movie, and I guess my review adds little. But I have to post it anyway. From the opening scenes and throughout this movie exhibits extraordinary photography. It's dark, so dark, but so intimate. Old school close-ups of real facial expressions in tune with the drama. And oh, what drama. Prepare to join Arthur Fleck as he descends on a heart wrenching, terrifying trip into madness. Phoenix and the movie are the one's to beat at the Oscars.

    TV shows will have to meet a series of diversity requirements to be eligible for Bafta awards under new rules. The BFI Diversity Standards, which cover race, gender and sexual orientation among other categories, are already part of the criteria for Bafta's film awards and are now being extended to cover small-screen productions. The rules will be piloted in Bafta's TV awards next year and will be fully introduced in 2021, the academy said. In addition, Bafta committees and jury members are receiving training in 'unconscious bias' in an effort to promote diversity.

Bush at a Dallas Cowboys football game against the Green Bay Packers in Dallas, Texas. Photos circulated of the pair sitting together in the owner’s suite, which prompted some on social media to question why she would be hanging out with the former president, whose politics run counter to hers. “They thought, ‘Why is a gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president?,” DeGeneres said in a clip from the Ellen DeGeneres Show. “A lot of people were...
