Decapitated Trump Image on Movie Poster Ignites Controversy at Cannes

When Women Rule the World is science fiction B-movie and it probably wouldn't be getting too much attention under normal circumstances. However, the crew behind the schlockfest are making waves at Cannes with a poster of a woman holding two decapitated heads. That's really not that big of deal, but one of the heads looks a lot like President Donald Trump and some people are not very happy about seeing their president portrayed that way, even if it is all just satire.

Writer/director/producer Sheldon Silverstein is the man behind When Women Rule the World, which he describes as satire. The movie takes place in the future after Donald Trump started the apocalypse with World War III, which was sparked after a genitalia comparing contest between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. The poster for the movie features a woman holding what looks like Trump's head, complete with his

If You Want to Get Technical, This Isn't Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio's First Movie Together

Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio are just two of the A-listers heading up Quentin Tarantino's upcoming film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The movie follows a TV actor (DiCaprio) and his stunt double (Pitt) as they navigate Los Angeles during the infamous Manson Family murders in 1969, and recently premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, where the actors put their bromance on full display.

Given how long they've both been in the business - we're talking, like, over 60 years between them - you'd think that these two handsome Hollywood heavyweights would have shared the screen multiple times, but Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is actually only the second time they've worked together on screen. Back in 2015, they played fictional versions of themselves for Martin Scorsese's short film The Audition, along with Robert De Niro. While they've each starred in Tarantino projects before - Pitt in 2009's Inglourious Basterds

Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Enters Oscar Race Following Cannes Premiere

Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Enters Oscar Race Following Cannes Premiere
Let the Quentin Tarantino debates begin.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” premiered on Tuesday night at the Cannes Film Festival to declarations of it being a “masterpiece” with comparisons to “Pulp Fiction” to others wondering aloud on social media that they needed more time to process and figure out how they really feel about this year’s most anticipated film at the festival.

Tarantino never fails to evoke endless conversations about the merits of his movies and “Once Upon a Time” will be no exception. Like his take on Nazis in “Inglourious Basterds” and slavery in “Django Unchained,” Tarantino tackles another dark time — Los Angeles during the Charles Manson murders when the city was fearing for its life.

Within hours of the premiere and a six-minute standing ovation, it was scoring 91 percent on Rotten Tomatoes based on 22 reviews.

But how will this all add up come Oscar time?

5 Movies to Watch Before You See Joker

Warner Bros/ YouTube

It’s safe to say when Warner Bros announced a standalone Joker movie starring Joaquin Phoenix, no-one quite knew what to expect. A striking lead performance certainly, but aside from that it appeared to be a wild card.

Directed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover) and set in the early Eighties, the simply-titled Joker was a mysterious box of tricks. A box that had been spewed out of the unwieldy DC Cinematic Universe and left for an unsuspecting public to open.

Then the exhilarating yet downbeat trailer landed and we saw exactly what Phillips and co-producer Bradley Cooper had in mind – the humiliating and hellish journey of one eccentric man’s unravelling. A process that ends with his transformation into the Clown Prince of Crime.

Watching the trailer brings to mind some movies the filmmakers could have been inspired by. So while we wait for October’s release,

Martin Scorsese on Getting The "Youthification" CGI Work in The Irishman To Look Right

Martin Scorsese’s next film is The Irishman and it is going to feature a lot of CGI work and that CGI work involves making stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel look years younger. The story for the film spans decades, and instead of re-casting younger actors to plays these characters, Scorsese opted to de-age them with CGI technology.

During a recent interview on the A24 Podcast, Scrosese opens up about the issues that he’s been having with this “youthification” process.

“There’s a great deal of CGI because we’re doing this ‘youthification’ of De Niro, Pesci and Al Pacino, and so they had to be CGI. There had to be a camera with three lenses and [it] was just crazy.”

He wants to make sure that the final result of this youthification looks right and it sounds like it’s driving him a little crazy,
