1 hour ago

Mayim Bialik apologized on Wednesday for an opinion piece she wrote for the New York Times, in which the “Big Bang Theory” actress spoke about making “self-protecting and wise” choices as a woman in Hollywood. Many people took her column reacting to the Harvey Weinstein scandal to be of the “victim-blaming” variety, and the response on social media was highly critical. “Let me say clearly and explicitly that I am very sorry,” the “Blossom” alum posted yesterday to Twitter. “What you wear and how you behave does not provide any protection from assault, nor does the way you dress or act in. »

Why Leigh Whannell Enjoys ‘Seeing People Get Scared’ at Halloween Horror Nights’ ‘Insidious’ Maze

9 hours ago

Even one of the most talented screenwriters in horror gets scared by his own product sometimes, especially when it is brought to life by the geniuses at Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights. “Insidious” writer and “Saw” franchise co-creator Leigh Whannell (above with wife, actress Corbett Luck) recently walked through the latest maze at the Hollywood theme park’s annual living, breathing, three-dimensional world of terror — and while he lived to tell the tale, he didn’t emerge completely unscathed. But Whannell was not half as disturbed as the thousands of other screaming guests getting leapt on by the Red-Faced Demon or stalked by. »

Chinese Director Chen Sicheng Takes His Show to New York

13 hours ago

Plenty of Hollywood blockbusters, from “Skyfall” to “Mission: Impossible III,” were at least partially filmed in China, as film execs want to continue to appeal to the world’s second-largest movie market – and likely soon to be the biggest. But there haven’t been many Chinese movies that have chosen to shoot in the U.S. – yet. Chinese actor and director Chen Sicheng is shaking that up, as he’s currently filming his next movie, “Detective Chinatown Vol. 2,” in New York City. And once the film was written, he had little choice – the Big Apple is a central part of. »

‘Riverdale': Yes, That Was a ‘Zodiac’ Homage at the End of ‘Nighthawks’

13 hours ago

(Spoilers ahead for the October 18 episode of “Riverdale,” “Nighthawks”) So at the end of this week’s “Riverdale,” the man with the hood showed up again to do some more murder. That’s not surprising on any level, obviously, since that guy is at the center of the plot of the show in season 2. First he shot Fred Andrews in the season 1 finale, then he returned in the season 2 premiere to kill Ms. Grundy with a cello bow. So while not surprising that this guy is at it again, the method is a bit surprising, because it’s a pretty. »

David Cross has once again responded to accusations from actress Charlyne Yi that he made racist comments to her 10 years ago, explaining that if he did make offensive statements, he meant them as a joke. “With the luxury of time and critical thought (two things antithetical to Twitter) in regards to all of this I believe I may have figured it out,” he wrote in the note shared to Twitter, which was titled “A Fruitless Endeavor Part 2.” “Firstly, there are two important facts to consider here. 1) I have Never said, ‘ching chong, ching chong’ unless I was doing »

Prone to distraction as it is, Twitter was briefly consumed on Wednesday by the conspiracy theory that Melania Trump used a body double at a press conference with her husband last week.

14 hours ago

Not one, not two, not three, but four movies are getting wide release in theaters this weekend, but of those films, the only one expected to have a solid outing is “Boo! 2,” the latest Madea film from Tyler Perry.

‘Leatherface’ Review: Umpteenth ‘Texas Chainsaw’ Origin Story Is a Bloody Bore

15 hours ago

Prequels exploring the early days or formative moments of established characters are not inherently bad, but “Leatherface” is second only to Rob Zombie’s “Halloween” remake in horror’s pantheon of terrible origin stories. Tackling the formative moments that gave birth to everyone’s favorite chainsaw-wielding hillbilly with less subtlety than the flashback sequence that opens “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (“Inside”) lay on visual style as thick as the corn syrup used for their buckets of fake blood while Lili Taylor and Stephen Dorff try in vain to lend dignity to the film’s lousy, »
