Quentin Tarantino Smokes a Cigar Days After 'Snapping' at Cannes
Quentin Tarantino just snapped at the Cannes Film Festival again -- and by that, we mean snapping open a lighter and burning a mean-looking cigar after some bad press this week. The veteran director was spotted hanging out solo Saturday on Nikki Beach in the South of France, where he was enjoying the final day of the festival after debuting his newest flick, "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," a few days earlier.

Cannes 2019: The Best 10 Movies From This Year’s Festival
Going into the Cannes Film Festival, several movies were already generating a lot of buzz, and they certainly delivered for many audiences. Elton John biopic “Rocketman” pleased diehard fans of the singer, who walked the red carpet to much fanfare. Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” brought Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt to Cannes to present some of their best performances yet, as an actor-stuntman duo in 1969 contending with the changing times. As a platform for studio movies generating buzz ahead of their stateside releases, Cannes did not disappoint.

However, the festival offers a whole lot of cinema beyond the most obvious headline-grabbing ingredients. With 69 films in the Official Selection and dozens more in Directors’ Fortnight and Critics’ Week, Cannes had plenty of opportunities to celebrate new work from auteur mainstays and major discoveries from new talents. Here are the major highlights.

Clint Eastwood’s ‘The Ballad of Richard Jewell’ Moves to Warner Bros From Fox-Disney
Clint Eastwood is officially attached to direct “The Ballad of Richard Jewell,” and Warner Bros. has acquired the rights to release the film, which was previously at Disney-Fox, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.

The Ballad of Richard Jewell” is based on the story of a security guard who was considered a possible suspect of a bombing that took place Atlanta’s Centennial Park during the 1996 Summer Olympics.

Billy Ray wrote the screenplay based on the 1997 Vanity Fair article from Marie Brenner that describes how Jewell, originally hailed by the media as a hero for alerting police to the presence of a bomb and helping evacuate the area, became linked as the FBI’s prime suspect in the Olympic Park bombing, completely upending his life in the process.

Clint Eastwood’s ‘The Ballad Of Richard Jewell’ Moves To Warner Bros
Clint Eastwood is headed back to his longtime home Warner Bros, which has picked up the director’s The Ballad Of Richard Jewell, the project that had been set up at Disney-Fox and that Deadline told you last month Eastwood was helming next.

The film is being produced by Appian Way’s Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson, who along with Eastwood have a deal at WB, making this shift in studios confirmed Friday less than a shocker. Jonah Hill and Kevin Misher are also producing along with Malipaso’s Eastwood, Tim Moore and Jessica Meier, and Misher FilmsAndy Berman.

Eastwood, who last directed Warners’ The Mule, will start shooting next month.

Hill was at one time attached to play Jewell, the security guard whose life was turned upside down after it was leaked by law enforcement to a reporter that he was a possible suspect in the Olympic Park bombing during the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.

Warner Bros. Lands Clint Eastwood’s ‘The Ballad of Richard Jewell’ From Fox-Disney (Exclusive)
Warner Bros. and Clint Eastwood are teaming up once again, as the studio has closed a deal to acquire the rights to “The Ballad of Richard Jewell” from Fox-Disney with Eastwood set to direct.

Eastwood has had his eye on “The Ballad of Richard Jewell” for some time, and was in talks to take on the project several years ago when it was at Fox before he eventually shifted his focus to another property. Following the success of his most recent drama, “The Mule,” the director began looking again for his next project and came back to “Richard Jewell,” which was now a part of Fox-Disney following the recent merger of the two studios.

There was a chance that the movie could have stayed at Fox-Disney, marking a reunion between Eastwood and Alan Horn, the current Disney Studios chief who worked with the filmmaker when he was the head of Warner Bros.

Taika Waititi’s ‘Akira’ to Face Off Against ‘John Wick 4’ in 2021

  • Variety
Warner Bros. has dated its live-action “Akira” movie, directed by Taika Waititi and produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, for May 21, 2021, when it will face off against “John Wick 4.”

The studio announced the date on Friday, two days after pushing the release of “DC Super Pets” back a year, avoiding opening against “John Wick 4.” Lionsgate revealed earlier this week that it would debut “John Wick 4” on the 2021 date following “John Wick: Chapter 3’s” highly successful launch.

Warner Bros. will shoot “Akira” in California and receive an $18.5 million tax credit, the California Film Commission announced in April. “Akira,” based on a manga series written and illustrated by Katsuhiro Otomo, and set in a post-apocalyptic 2060 Tokyo, will generate an estimated $92 million in qualified spending, including $43 million in wages to 200 below-the-line crew members and more than 5,000 extras/stand-ins. The project is scheduled to film entirely in California over the course of 71 days.

Taika Waititi's Akira Will Be Released Summer of 2021 and Neo-Tokyo Setting is Confirmed

Warner Bros. has announced that the release date for director Taika Waititi's live-action adaptation of Akira is May 21st, 2021.

A new logline for the film was also released that confirms the film will be set in Neo-Tokyo and not the Neo-Manhattan setting that was previously rumored. That’ll make fans happy! That logline reads:

A secret military project endangers Neo-Tokyo when it turns a biker gang member into a rampaging psychic psychopath that only two teenagers and a group of psychics can stop.

When previously talking about the movie and his vision, Waititi made it very clear that he would cast teenage Asians in the lead roles. He’s obviously looking to avoid any kind of whitewashing controversy. When asked about the casting, he said:

"Asian teenagers would be the way to do it for me and probably no, not, like no name, I mean sort of unfound, untapped talent.

Brad Pitt Is Just Going to Be Gorgeous Forever, Huh?
The year was 2017, and Brad Pitt was back on the scene promoting a handful of onscreen projects after a tumultuous split from Angelina Jolie. Not only was he hitting red carpets again, but he was looking damn good while doing it. Let's just say that I noticed.

Cut to two years later and I have yet to feel differently about the 55-year-old actor, who is currently doing press for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with another eternally handsome A-lister, Leonardo DiCaprio. The two looked so hot in their recent Esquire spread that it was frankly a little uncomfortable. And don't get me started on Brad in a tuxedo and bow tie, hamming it up on the red carpet in Cannes.

Given Ouatih's July release date, we can plan on seeing a lot more of Brad in the coming months. He's also starring as an astronaut in the upcoming adventure drama Ad Astra,

The Trailer For Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Is a Wild, Star-Studded Ride

The Trailer For Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Is a Wild, Star-Studded Ride
A new look at Once Upon a Time in Hollywood pretty much sets up everything you'd expect from a Quentin Tarantino production: fight scenes, offbeat humor, and a whole lot of stars. In the official trailer, viewers are introduced to Rick Dalton, an actor who perhaps takes himself a little too seriously, and his affable stunt double Cliff Booth - portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, respectively.

Taking place in 1969, the film will also be backdropped by the Manson Family murders, with Margot Robbie portraying Sharon Tate. In case you're wondering how that real-life tragedy will intersect with Tarantino's fictional characters, the new footage reveals that Cliff's girlfriend will introduce him to cult leader Charles Manson, and Rick is seen living next door to Tate.

Elaborating on the premise at CinemaCon nearly a year ago, Tarantino said, "It takes place at the height of the counter-culture explosion, at the height of the hippie revolution,

Cannes 2019: Peter Bradshaw's picks – and Palme d'Or predictions

Our chief critic’s considered verdict on new movies from big-hitters Almodóvar, Tarantino, Malick and Loach, as well as the buzz around homegrown talent Céline Sciamma

This has been an excellent Cannes, despite a middling opener from Jim Jarmusch – a tongue-in-cheek zombie comedy called The Dead Don’t Die, which was moderately amusing when we were hoping for immoderately.

It is not merely that great work has been presented by the established old-stagers and silverback gorillas of the festival’s history; there has been great work from newer names and younger voices, too. There were outstanding films by Pedro Almodóvar, Ken Loach and Quentin Tarantino, each of whom delivered thoroughly characteristic work, but deeply satisfying for all that. Almodóvar’s Pain and Glory is a complex, absorbing auto-fiction based on the director’s own life. Ken Loach’s Sorry We Missed You, with its well-researched screenplay by Paul Laverty, is

Quentin Tarantino Collects Palm Dog Award for 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' Pit Bull
Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has claimed its first award.

The darkly comic film — starring Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie — had its world premiere in Cannes on Tuesday, where it was well-received by critics. But the movie's first honor was not for the A-list lineup or legendary director, but instead for a four-legged member of the star-studded cast.

Brandy plays the pit bull pet of Pitt's character, Cliff Booth — an animal with some considerable screen time who plays a crucial role in at least one scene. She won the Palm Dog ...

amFAR Gala Brings Out The Very Rich Glamour Crowd Showing The Flip Side Of The Cannes Film Festival

amFAR’s glamorous annual event tied to the Cannes Film Festival always has been a highpoint in turning out the fashion looks we associate with the Riviera event. It adds to the mystique of the festival and helps set it apart from others. This year was no different in that regard — but completely different in another. The event, now known as amFAR Gala Cannes, previously was called Cinema Against AIDS as a way of directly tying into the festival itself, and when Harvey Weinstein was a key poster boy for the event he made sure the stars and jury members always found their way to the Hotel du Cap in Antibes for this huge event, and before that at Moulin des Mougins nearby before it grew even bigger.

Thank You Leonardo DiCaprio For Blessing Us With 44 Years of Hotness
Leonardo DiCaprio celebrated his 44th birthday this past November, and we're still not quite sure how to feel about it. On the one hand, we can't believe that the little guy from Growing Pains has built such an illustrious film career, but on the other, it makes us feel pretty ancient. After all, watching Titanic on VHS and listening to the Romeo + Juliet soundtrack on repeat feels like yesterday. Despite his constant Hollywood presence and multitude of Teen Beat covers, Leo successfully escaped the child star curse and took home his first-ever Oscar in 2016. We can all probably agree that Leo has become one of the most talented and sought-after actors of our time. In honor of Leo's upcoming film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, we've charted Leo's evolution from teenage dream to A-list heartthrob.
