Jimmy Kimmel Adapts Ted Cruz’s ‘Space Pirates’ Warning Into Campy Film Trailer

Jimmy Kimmel Adapts Ted Cruz’s ‘Space Pirates’ Warning Into Campy Film Trailer
Jimmy Kimmel Live twisted Ted Cruz’s Senate warning of “space pirates” into the fake trailer for a goofy sci-fi/adventure film. The clip from Wednesday’s episode utilized the Senator’s comments from a recent subcommittee on aviation and space, in which he proclaimed, “Pirates threaten the open seas, and the same is possible in space.”

“Just when you think Ted Cruz can’t get any weirder, he goes and becomes a Scientologist on us,” Kimmel jabbed in his intro. He then cut to a clip from an actual

‘1969’ Trailer Tells the Story of the Most Transformative Year in U.S. History

1969 was a year of groundbreaking change in the United States: not only was it the year of the moon landing and Woodstock, but it was also the year of the Stonewall riots and anti-war protests, a time when young people looked around and saw the sorry state of world affairs and decided they needed to do something about it. A new, six-part ABC docuseries, 1969 tells the story of this extraordinary year, and it kicks off with the untold story of perhaps one of the most formative events of the 20th century: the moon landing.

Discovery Orders Series ‘River of No Return,’ Where It’s Homesteaders vs Idaho Wilderness (Exclusive)

  • The Wrap
Discovery has greenlit a new series, “River of No Return” — and by the sound of it, it’s not going to be your average camping trip.

The series follows a small community of people who live in Idaho’s remote Frank Church Wilderness, where the only way in or out is by plane — or, for the brave, by boat across the perilous Salmon River.

Lewis and Clark described the river — the largest un-dammed river in North America — as “foaming and roaring through rocks in every direction, so as to render the passage of anything impossible.” The 2.3 million acres of secluded wilderness beyond, also known as “The Frank,” is home to some of the last stretches of undeveloped frontier — and some very steep canyons.

‘West Side Story’ Remake Adds Corey Stoll, Brian d’Arcy James as Cops
Steven Spielberg has cast Corey Stoll and Brian d’Arcy James as police officers in his movie adaptation of “West Side Story.”

The song “Gee Officer Krupke” was performed by the Jets in the original Broadway musical and the 1961 movie. It concludes with the memorable line “Gee, Officer Krupke – Krup you!”

Spielberg has already cast 17-year-old high schooler Rachel Zegler as Maria opposite Ansel Elgort as Tony, along with Rita Moreno as Valentina — a reconceived version of the character of Doc, the owner of the corner store where Tony works. Moreno won an Academy Award for her portrayal of Anita in the 1961 film version of “West Side Story.

Inside the Making of the Mind-Blowing ‘Apollo 11’ Doc

Inside the Making of the Mind-Blowing ‘Apollo 11’ Doc
Todd Douglas Miller knew that, when it comes to making documentaries — like 2014’s T-Rex fossil hunt Dinosaur 13 — things can get a little stressful. Still, this new project he had been working on was something else entirely. Sitting in an office in New York City last year, the filmmaker would regularly await the arrival of one of many climate-controlled trucks being driven up from College Park, Maryland. The two drivers were instructed not to stop — and even then, only if they had to switch seats. Miller would regularly check traffic conditions,

‘Dragon 3’ Keeps The Fire Burning At No. 1 With $30M Second Weekend; ‘Madea’ Mints $27M

  • Deadline
4th Update, Sunday Am: DreamWorks Animation/Universal’s How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World has won the weekend, as we wrote earlier, thanks to Saturday matinees, which took yesterday to $14.1M, a 119% gain over Friday. This now puts the threequel at a second weekend of $30M, -45%, which is a sign of relief to Dwa, as a second weekend drop that’s more severe than -50% is never good for an animated pic. Hidden World will stand just under $98M and will become the third 2019 release to cross $100M after Uni/Bvi/Blumhouse’s Glass and Stx/Lantern’s The Upside.

Hidden World is also the No. 1 international, No. 1 worldwide, and No. 1 in China, with a total global weekend of $115.4M. Total running Ww is $375.4M, which eclipses the original movie’s total global of $351.8M. My colleague, Nancy Tartaglione, will have more on this. Part 2 remains the highest-grossing installment with $621.5M Ww.

‘Apollo 11’ Director Says Damien Chazelle Beat Him to Staging the Moon Landing: ‘That Was My Exact Idea’

‘Apollo 11’ Director Says Damien Chazelle Beat Him to Staging the Moon Landing: ‘That Was My Exact Idea’
When Todd Douglas Miller was editing his film “Apollo 11,” a sweeping, ambitious documentary about Neil Armstrong and the first moon landing mission, he envisioned building up to Armstrong exiting the lunar module, then silently cutting away into the widescreen, IMAX format to reveal the immense scope of the moon’s surface.

The only problem was, Damien Chazelle had done just that for his own film, “First Man.”

“I told Damien, that was my exact idea! We were editing pretty much around the same time,” Miller said he shared with Chazelle when the two met at Sundance. “I was at first a little angry, but the challenge was to come up with something else because I didn’t want to get into the same thing.”

Five Decades After Moon Landing, 'Apollo 11' Doc Has Its Head in the Stars (Guest Column)

I'm not exactly a tough sell when it comes to films about slipping the surly bonds of Earth. I had space posters plastered all over the walls and ceiling of my room, and models of the X-15 rocket plane and Saturn V on bookshelves that held the dog-eared issues of National Geographic during the space race years. After all, it was the era's greatest adventure. (Come to think of it, those issues are still on my bookshelves.)

And now, as we approach the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission that put Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the ...
