‘1922’ Review: Thomas Jane Haunted by Guilt in Stephen King Adaptation

1 hour ago

Guilt may be the focus of “1922,” but it’s the audience’s patience that gets a workout. The story of a Midwestern farmer coming to terms with his role in his wife’s murder, Zak Hilditch’s adaptation of Stephen King’s novella of the same name feels overlong or maybe underfed, fleshing out the character’s mental deterioration in handsome but unsurprising detail. Even boasting strong performances from the likes of Thomas Jane and Molly Parker, “1922” feels best suited for its home on Netflix (premiering October 20) as Hollywood shuffles through its latest surge in King-themed projects. Jane plays Wilfred James, »

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Star Jason Isaacs Tells Us Whether Show’s Klingons Reflect Trump

3 hours ago

With “Star Trek: Discovery” taking flight tonight, its star Jason Isaacs weighs in on the notion that the show’s Klingons reflect the mindset of some President Trump supporters. The speculation came following showrunner Aaron Harberts’ recent mention that the new series in the Gene Roddenberry-created sci-fi franchise will take cues from the contemporary world, and that the Klingons will “help us really look at certain sides of ourselves and our country.” Although this led many to infer that “Discovery” would be using the warrior species to comment on the Trump mindset, CBS called that a misinterpretation. “I don »

Facebook and the Future of Democracy, News, Free Expression and All That Stuff

3 hours ago

Facebook has a “D.C. problem,” says everybody: the Washington, D.C.-based news sites and pundits, Axios and Politico and Rachel Maddow. Everybody’s up in arms that Facebook took months to disclose that it received $100,000 in political ads from Russian fronts during the 2016 election. Facebook finally fessed up to this fact in September — eight months after having denied it. CEO Mark Zuckerberg last week rushed to offer an empathetic video in which he confessed that “for a while we had found no evidence of fake accounts linked to Russia running ads” but the platform suddenly found 3,000 fake ads that. »

4 hours ago

20th Century Fox’s “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” took the No. 1 spot at the box office from “It” this weekend with an estimated $39 million opening from 4,003 locations. It’s a solid opening that’s slightly above the $36.2 million opening made by the spy sequel’s predecessor, “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” and just a step below pre-weekend projections of $40 million. “The Golden Circle” had a much more mixed critical reception than “Secret Service” did, earning 51 percent on Rotten Tomatoes  compared to its predecessor’s 74 percent. But audiences were kinder to the film, giving it a B+ on CinemaScore. Overseas, »

7 hours ago

For a third straight day, President Donald Trump renewed his verbal attacks on the National Football League for allowing some of its players to protest during the national anthem before games.

‘Will & Grace’ Cast and Creators Rip Reports That NBC Sitcom Uses a Laugh Track

18 hours ago

Ok, Ok, Ok, you don’t use a laugh track, “Will & Grace.” The cast and creators of the revived NBC sitcom participated in a Tribeca TV Festival panel discussion early Saturday evening, when writer/executive producer Max Mutchnick and the gang reacted pretty strongly to the idea that they use a laugh track. Here’s where it gets weird: nobody brought it up. “That’s a live audience,” Mutchnick started off after a strange non-sequitur segue from star Megan Mullally. “A lot of people are now writing about this, the ‘canned laughter.'” “We try to pull back the laughs as much as we can. »

Colin Kaepernick has scores of athletes, fans and even the NFL chief supporting his right to take a knee during the national anthem in protest of police brutality, but no one has expressed their approval of his actions quite like his own mom, Teresa.

Jk Rowling Slaps Trump on Privilege: ‘Some People Don’t Get Given Millions by Daddy, Donnie’

20 hours ago

There certainly is no love lost between President Donald Trump and J.K. Rowling, as was once again proven by the “Harry Potter” author’s Saturday tweet over the debate about NFL players kneeling during the national anthem in protest over police brutality. Rowling’s button was pushed when the Potus tweeted that football players who have the “privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL” should not be allowed to sit out the anthem.

“Han Solo” director Ron Howard on Saturday teased “shooting a scene about desperate and dangerous times in the Galaxy” and shareda new behind-the-scenes photo.
