Original ‘Blade Runner’ Sequel Would’ve Been John Le Carré-Esque

48 minutes ago

Blade Runner 2049” is on the way, and judging by the recently released timeline exploring what has happened between the original film and sequel, a lot of thought has been put into it. However, the upcoming film from Denis Villeneuve is not the first time the idea of a followup to the 1982 sci-fi classic has been considered. In fact, not along after “Blade Runner” originally opened, concepts were being tossed around about a possible followup, and screenwriter Hampton Fancher has revealed one of the early ideas that was being toyed with.

Anne Hathaway Eyes Live Action ‘Barbie’ Movie

1 hour ago

Come hell or high water, Sony is determined to have a live action “Barbie” movie in cinemas on June 29, 2018. The reason is as transparent and bland as you’d expect: money. When original star Amy Schumer left the picture over “scheduling conflicts,” the project put Sony in a bind because Mattel has a whole new product line readied for roll-out, with other licensing and promotional deals likely mapped out.

Daniel Craig Is Back As James Bond

2 hours ago

Yesterday came the surprising news that the next installment in the James Bond franchise had been put on the calendar for 2019. However, the big question remained whether or not Daniel Craig would reprise his role as 007, particularly after a particularly grumpy press tour for “Spectre,” where it seemed he’d rather do anything else than play the iconic character again. Well, now we know.

The New York Times reveals that Craig is set to reprise his role as James Bond, and once again drink his martinis shaken, not stirred.

2017 Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series Predictions

6 hours ago

This is yet another toss-up category, but in this case it’s likely between just two nominees for the win. Chrissy Metz from “This Is Us” and Thandie Newton from “Westworld” are your potential winners. “The Handmaid’s Tale’s” Ann Dowd could surprise, but that actresses’ Emmy chances are much better in the other category she’s nominated in, Guest Actress in a Drama Series for “The Leftovers.” Before the nominations were announced, many believed Metz would easily win.

2017 Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series Predictions

6 hours ago

There are very few categories that seem like a lock, but this is one of them. If John Lithgow doesn’t take this Emmy, it will be a monumental upset.  He won the “lead” actor category for his role in “The Crown” at the SAG Awards and is a 12-time Emmy nominee and four-time winner. If anyone finds a way to steal his, um, crown among this crowded field, it will likely either be Ron Cephas Jones from “This Is Us” or David Harbour from “Stranger Things.”  [Posted July 25]

2017 Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series Predictions

16 hours ago

Louie Anderson won this category last year. Tony Hale won two out of the past four years. Ty Burrell won in 2011 and 2014. None of that matters because Alec Baldwin is taking this easily for his iconic performance as Donald Trump on “SNL.” You can even expect a Trump tweet about it is already ready to go.

2017 Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series Predictions

16 hours ago

Will the fact that there are three actresses in this category from “SNL” cancel each other out? Not likely. Kate McKinnon should repeat her 2016 win easily. If she falters, look for the very deserving Judith Light to add an Emmy to those two Tonys and that Daytime Emmy Award already on her mantle. [Posted July 24]

2017 Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie Emmy Predictions

16 hours ago

This category is very, very interesting. Emmy voters rewarded great performances that might not have made the cut, such as Jackie Hoffman, as well as longtime favorites such as Regina King (the winner in this category the past two years) and Judy Davis (12-time nominee, three-time winner including twice in this category). But, Laura Dern is now a six-time nominee who has never won and Michelle Pfieffer is a first-timer who falls into the legendary category with the ladies in the lead version of this category.

2017 Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie Emmy Predictions

16 hours ago

This is another tough category where almost any of the nominees could win (do you detect a theme?). We’re going with our gut here that “Feud‘s” Alfred Molina pulls it out, but his co-star Stanley Tucci and “Big Little LiesAlexander Skarsgard are right in the mix. [Posted July 24]

Todd McFarlane’s ‘Spawn’ Movie Won’t Have Much Spawn In It

17 hours ago

It’s been twenty years since “Spawn” stalked the big screen, and fans have been waiting for the character to return in an adaptation more suited to its comic book origins. Well, it’s finally happening, with none other than creator Todd MacFarlane himself making his directorial debut, with horror shingle Blumhouse backing the picture. Sounds pretty good, but the MacFarlane’s movie might not feature much of the title character at all.

2017 Best Lead Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie Emmy Predictions

17 hours ago

This category has upset written all over it. There is no contender who has won in this awards cycle at the SAG Awards or Golden Globes, although the “frontrunner,” Riz Ahmed, was nominated for both.  There are also two Oscar winners, Robert De Niro and Geoffrey Rush, another Oscar nominee, Benedict Cumberbatch, an actor who played two roles, Ewan McGregor, and a former Emmy winner who has a legendary career, John Turturro.

2017 Best Lead Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie

17 hours ago

The drama starts here. Four Oscar winners stand before us: Nicole Kidman, Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon and Reese Witherspoon. Joining them is fan favorite Carrie Coon, who should have been Academy Award nominated a few years ago for “Gone Girl” and Emmy nominated for the past three seasons of “The Leftovers.” I’m sticking with my prediction that “Feud‘s” Lange, who has won this category twice before and has another win in Supporting Actress, will prevail here while “Big Little Lies” takes the top prize.

New James Bond Movie Officially Announced For 2019

18 hours ago

The timing for this bit of news is certainly….interesting. Today, the review embargo lifted on Steven Soderbergh‘s “Logan Lucky,” which finds Daniel Craig giving a comic performance unlike anything we’ve seen from the actor. It’s a big step away from the brooding visage we’re used to seeing from the actor in the James Bond films, but perhaps he’s gearing up to give it one more go.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Might Be The Longest Marvel Movie Yet

19 hours ago

It’s a weird time in movie culture, where running times are suddenly of vital importance (“Transformers: The Last Knight” is too long! “The Dark Tower” is too short!), and somehow an indication of quality. The length of a movie doesn’t matter, because it’s all about the story — as long as it’s captivating and well-formed, how much time it takes to unfold is a bit irrelevant. However, people have busy lives I suppose and want to know just how much time they need to carve out if they’re headed to the cinema.

Terrence Malick’s ‘Radegund’ Might Be Ready For Tiff

19 hours ago

Tomorrow morning, awards prognosticators, movie critics, and pretty much anyone who covers movies, will be turning their attention to the Toronto International Film Festival. Organizers will be unveiling their first wave of films, and as always, there’s plenty of speculation about what might show up. We’re not going to go too crazy into trying to read the tea leaves ourselves since we’re less than 24 hours away from a formal announcement. However, Deadline has run through every possibility under the sun, there is one movie that jumped out at us.

On this installment I spoke to filmmaker Jennifer Phang, the rising talent behind the indie sci-fi hit “Advantageous.”

After a number of shorts, Phang released her first feature film “Half-Life” in 2008. It centered around siblings dealing with both the absence of their father and a global catastrophe.

Warner Bros. Spending $25 Million On ‘Justice League’ Reshoots

20 hours ago

Earlier this year, the DC Films world was rocked with the news that Zack Snyder was stepping away from “Justice League” for family reasons, with Joss Whedon taking over the film during post-production. Part of his duties would be filming what was described as additional photography, a standard part of any blockbuster process. However, it now looks like Warner Bros. is seriously trying to fix or substantially tweak the huge anchor in their DC Films Extended Universe.

‘Logan Lucky’ Is A Whip-Smart, Laugh-Out-Loud Funny Romp [Review]

21 hours ago

Since coming out of a brief retirement from filmmaking following the release of his Liberace biopic for HBO “Behind the Candelabra,” Steven Soderbergh has been awfully busy. Amongst his many projects, he shot, edited, and directed two entire seasons of Cinemax‘s overlooked medical drama “The Knick,” directed an off-Broadway play called “The Library,” edited and shot male stripper sequel “Magic Mike Xxl,” and released a series of weird fan edits of famous films, including “Heaven’s Gate” and “2001: A Space Odyssey,” plus “Psychos,” a mirrored mash-up of both Alfred Hitchcock‘s original film and Gus Van Sant‘s remake.

‘Blade Runner 2049’ Timeline Revealed, Includes Replicant Prohibition & Hunger Crisis

22 hours ago

Saturday’s “Blade Runner 2049” Comic-Con panel was, in appropriately futuristic fashion, introduced by Jared Leto in hologram form. The actor showed up to hype the sequel to Ridley Scott‘s classic, promising fans that Denis Villeneuve‘s new installment in the series wouldn’t disappoint.

Do we really need  Hologram Jared Leto’s assurance, though? (No offense, Hjl, in case you’re reading this.) With a string of assured, well received movies under his belt, including “Arrival,” “Prisoners,” “Sicario,” and my personal favorite, “Enemy,” Villeneuve has yet to miss the mark.
