‘The Big Sick’ reviews: It could follow in Oscars footsteps of rom-coms like ‘Four Weddings and Funeral’

23 June 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Could “The Big Sick” be one of the year’s earliest Oscar contenders? True, 2017 is nearly half over, so it’s hardly the earliest acclaimed film of the year, but studios usually aren’t in an Oscar frame of mind until the fall, when they start releasing their weightiest biopics, historical dramas, and other such genres that […] »

'All Eyez on Me' Prompts Journalist to Admit Having "Embellished" Tupac Articles

23 June 2017 12:03 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Journalists are supposed to be factual. Then again, copyright law doesn't protect the naked recitation of historical facts. Alas, a quandry showcased in a new lawsuit against Lionsgate, Morgan Creek and others associated with All Eyez on Me, the biopic about the late rapper, Tupac Shakur.

In a complaint filed on Friday in New York federal court, Kevin Powell claims the movie infringes upon several of his articles for Vibe Magazine published in the 1990s. But again, if Shakur's life events are in the public domain, how does a journalist possibly get around copyright limitations to sue filmmakers who tread similar »

Netflix Introduces Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Stories, Because Deciding What to Watch Isn’t Hard Enough Already

1 hour ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A wealth of possibilities breeds dread, but that doesn’t stop us from endlessly browsing Netflix in search of something new to watch. The streaming giant is now making that both easier and more difficult with the introduction of interactive movies and shows that essentially function as choose-your-own-adventure stories, like the just-released “Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale.”

Dan Harmon Explains ‘Rick and Morty’ Season 3 Delays in Lengthy Twitter Thread

2 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

For a certain sect of animation fans, Dan Harmon fans, and general miscreants with a taste for pitch-black comedy, the delay in Rick and Morty Season 3's release has caused quite a bit of an uproar. The reasons for this are maddening to say the least, as the amount of people who seem to believe Harmon and co-creator Justin Roiland owe them quick turnaround and a full season of perfect episodes that don't stir any of their myriad hang-ups is frankly stunning. Even after they threw everyone a bone and released the season 3 premiere … »

2 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Following the sad news that Peter Sallis has taken his last grand day out, the folks behind “Wallace and Gromit” have paid tribute to the departed actor. Sallis voiced the human half of the duo from its inception until 2010, including four short films (“A Grand Day Out,” “The Wrong Trousers,” “A Close Shave” and “A Matter of Loaf and Death”) and the feature film “Curse of the Were-Rabbit”; his gentle voice is one of the beloved stop-motion series’ most distinctive traits. Watch the video below.

Keanu Reeves Gives a Dramatic Pitch for ‘The Bad Batch’ with Ana Lily Amirpour

3 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In Ana Lily Amirpour’s “The Bad Batch,” Keanu Reeves plays The Dream, the slick ruler of a post-apocalyptic encampment called Comfort, where social rejects party late into the night. He’s one of a few key characters in a dramatic story that finds Arlen (Suki Waterhouse) escaping an encampment of cannibals led by Miami Man (Jason Momoa) before she falls in love with him. With a bit part for Jim Carrey as a mute desert hermit and violent confrontations that leave you wondering who the real hero is, the movie offers a lot of entry points for discussion. That was evident on its opening night at New York’s IFC Center, when Reeves made a surprise appearance for the Q&A and found himself in the unexpected position of pitching the movie.

Corey Stoll Reflects on Playing Brutus in ‘Julius Caesar’: ‘Doing the Work of an Artist Has Become a Political Act’

3 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

You’ve no doubt heard a lot about Shakespeare in the Park’s production of “Julius Caesar,” but lost amid the canceled sponsorships and phony outrage is the fact that Corey Stoll of “House of Cards” and “Ant-Man” was playing Brutus. As the man who actually betrays the Donald Trump–like Caesar, Stoll is in a unique position to comment on the controversy.

He’s done just that in an insightful essay for Vulture, going out of his way to underscore something that anyone who’s actually read “Julius Caesar” already knows: “The play makes it clear that Caesar’s murder, which occurs midway through the play, is ruinous for Brutus and his co-conspirators, and for democracy itself.”

‘All Eyez on Me’ Sued for Copyright Infringement for Allegedly Lifting ‘Fictional Characters and Re-Worked Narratives’

3 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The list of people who aren’t happy with “All Eyez on Me” continues to grow. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a journalist by the name of Kevin Powell is going even further than Jada Pinkett Smith and 50 Cent, as he’s actually filed a copyright lawsuit alleging that the Tupac Shakur biopic lifted “fictional characters and re-worked narratives” from a series of Vibe interviews he conducted with the slain rapper.

“While some of the content in these articles was factual,” reads the filing, “some portions of the article were changed or embellished by Plaintiff.” That’s crucial to Powell’s case, because if “All Eyez on Me” did in fact use his interviews — especially the parts that deviate from fact — then it essentially adapted his work without crediting him.
