Who Is Pico Alexander? Let's Take a Moment to Talk About That Hot Guy in Home Again

8 September 2017 12:59 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

If you don't know who Pico Alexander is yet, your life is about to change. The 26-year-old actor is making waves in Hollywood thanks to his latest role in Home Again alongside Reese Witherspoon, and we have a feeling you're going to be obsessed with him after this. Not only is he talented, but he's also super easy on the eyes and already has a couple of other projects lined up. Here are five things you should know about him before he blows up. Pico isn't his real name. Pico was actually born Alexander Jogalla, but his grandfather gave him that nickname as a baby. "My grandfather started jokingly referring to me as Pico when my mom was pregnant with me," he explained to HuffPost in June 2015. "And then when I was born, they wanted to give me a serious name, so they named me Alexander. But nobody ever called »

Death Note actor Lakeith Stanfield wants to play the Joker in origin movie

27 August 2017 3:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ever since it was revealed that Warner Bros. is planning an origin movie built around Batman’s archenemy, the Joker, speculation has been rampant about which actor will fill the character’s clown shoes.

The film will be under an entirely new DC banner, one that exists outside of the DC Extended Universe, meaning that Suicide Squad’s Jared Leto won’t be making an appearance in the project. According to the report, Todd Phillips will direct and co-write the screenplay with Scott Silver, and Martin Scorsese will produce. 

While the film’s concept may leave some viewers confused, given how the Joker is already an established character within the studio’s other movie universe, it does leave DC with a blank canvas ripe with exciting story, creative team and casting possibilities. As for the latter, actor Lakeith Stanfield has already thrown his hat in the ring for the role. »

Netflix continues to branch out with “Death Note”

22 August 2017 1:39 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

There’s a notable difference between the types of projects that Amazon and Netflix have been putting out, theatrically speaking. On the one hand, Amazon has been gunning for awards and embracing a theatrical release with things like the Oscar winner Manchester by the Sea. There’s also their burgeoning relationship with an auteur like Woody Allen. It’s a whole concerted effort under their Amazon Studios wing. On the other hand, Netflix has gone for casting a wider net, while only occasionally putting their higher profile films out in theaters, like Beasts of No Nation or this year’s Okja. They only once in a while look at things with an awards type view. So far, they’ve either come up short with would be players like War Machine, or seen things like Beasts of No Nation snubbed. This week, Death Note hits as the latest major Netflix release. »

Has Netflix’s Ted Sarandos Rescued (or Ruined) Hollywood?

15 August 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For a soft-spoken man, Ted Sarandos makes a lot of thunderous news. Just consider the headlines he’s generated over the last week alone with a succession of game-changing deals. The chief content officer for Netflix stole Shonda Rhimes from ABC, lured retiree David Letterman back into talk-show mode, prodded the reclusive Coen brothers into TV production and snapped up Millarworld, a comic-book empire with buzzy titles like “Jupiter’s Legacy” and “Huck.”

Netflix could conceivably rival Disney and Marvel by assembling its own superhero universe. On Aug. 9, two days after the announcement of the Millarworld purchase, Disney dropped a bombshell when it unveiled plans to launch a streaming service and yank its branded family and Pixar films from Netflix beginning in 2019.

Over the weekend, Netflix fired back by announcing it had poached TV’s most powerful showrunner from her longtime home at Disney’s ABC. “Shonda »

The Top 12 Composers of the 21st Century, From Hans Zimmer to Nick Cave

7 August 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In an age where special effects reign supreme, there’s one aspect of the filmmaking process that hasn’t gone through a radical transformation — music. Some of the best movies in any given year would be sorely lacking without their memorable scores, and this has remained true well into the first two decades of the 21st century.

Film composers play an integral part in the filmmaking process, and there are a handful whose bodies of work stand out in recent years. Of course, this list of 12 major composers only begins to scratch the surface of the talent out there. There are plenty of other worthy contributors to the medium who didn’t make the cut — Danny Elfman and John Williams, we’re looking at you — but rest assured that this top dozen represent the cream of the crop.

Bigelow's Detroit Review Pt. 2: Marketable Thriller Instead of Real-Life Tragedy

6 August 2017 9:12 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Still-living history' See previous post: “'Detroit' Movie: Kathryn Bigelow 1967 Riots Depiction 'Horribly Real' & 'Deeply Self-Serving'.” But I'm a Black American from the 1960s, who knows this history as a history of the lives of my people in this nation. From uprisings in Philly and Harlem, to those in Watts and Ferguson (where I lived for years), these stories have been lived and told from generation to generation with the specific intention of keeping me and black boys like me alive. The idea that the police could and did kill black folks anywhere, at anytime, for any reason – or no reason at all – has been a baseline of understanding in black communities for 400 years, give or take a week or two during Reconstruction and Bill Clinton's first election. For Black Americans, the events of Detroit '67 are not the events of a “dramatic thriller.” They are the events of a tragedy and still-living history we »

How Breakout 'Atlanta' Star Lakeith Stanfield Became the Busiest Man in Showbiz

4 August 2017 7:12 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

When you're Lakeith Stanfield and you happen to play a guy like Darius, the pothead-philosopher of FX's Atlanta – and not just play him, but turn a hit show's comic-relief role into the sort of weirdly relatable oddball that becomes an instant fan-favorite – it's natural that complete strangers would want to get you high. At the club, in a mall, walking down the street – doesn't matter. "The funny thing is, they assume I smoke," the 25-year-old actor says of the show's fans. "And you know, I don't. But yeah, I get a lot of offers. »

Bright: Director David Ayer On Working With Netflix

27 July 2017 4:54 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Netflix is very quickly changing the way media is being consumed. Just a few short years ago, they weren’t even involved in original programming, and in the time since then, they’ve managed to be one of the most respected “networks” around (if you can even call them that). They are now hard at work at extending their reach to the feature film department.

Netflix has had a good number of original films hit their service over the past few years, but this year has the release of a few high profile ones. Among them is the Brad Pitt-starring War Machine, the fantasy film Okja, the horror-thriller (based on a manga) Death Note, and the original action-fantasy-cop drama Bright, from Suicide Squad director David Ayer.

Quentin Tarantino Wants Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence For New Movie, And They Shouldn’t Resist

12 July 2017 9:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Quentin Tarantino comes knocking, you answer the door. If that’s not an unspoken rule among Hollywood actors, then it very well should be. Tarantino has given movie history badass female protagonists like The Bride and Jackie Brown and wicked villains like Hans Landa and Calvin Candy. Even his cameos often pack more of a wallop than other director’s leading roles (see Michael Parks in “Kill Bill Vol. 2” and Jonah Hill in “Django Unchained”). All of this is to say the obvious: Tarantino creates unforgettable characters, and it wouldn’t be in your best interest to pass on it.

Tarantino is prepping his ninth feature, and if his earlier claim that he’ll retire after 10 films, this one will be his penultimate movie. Working once again with Bob and Harvey Weinstein, »

Sun Valley: Why the Era of Big Media Consolidation Is Fizzling

11 July 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Have you heard the one about the era of big media consolidation?

It’s a yarn that moguls and Wall Street watchers like to spin. In this oft-told story, the rulers of television and film kingdoms will decide to join forces to stave off rampaging armies of digital disruptors or will have no choice but to open their gates and let a technology upstart grab their thrones. Expect it to be all the talk at this year’s Allen & Co. media and technology conference, which is unfolding this week in Sun Valley, Idaho. The only problem is that despite being repeated as conventional wisdom, this era of mega mergers between Hollywood players and Silicon Valley titans has yet to pass.

That’s not to say there haven’t been unions. One in particular, the $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner by At&T is still awaiting government approval. Despite speculation that the pact would set off a wave »

Brad Pitt is back!

Once again, the 53-year-old heartthrob was spotted out and about in Los Angeles, California, on Thursday, and looked ruggedly handsome in a pair of worn blue jeans, brown boots, dark sunglasses and a blue muscle T-shirt. Pitt took a break from working at his office, and was seen grabbing iced coffee to beat the summer heat.

The War Machine star has certainly found his stride since splitting from wife Angelina Jolie in September, and appears to have done so by putting all his energy into his art. Prior to his iced coffee run, Pitt was photographed smiling for cameras outside his art studio, while wearing another fitted T-shirt, faded jeans and the same brown boots. To top it all off, he's currently sporting some sexy, scruffy facial hair.
