‘The New Pope’ First Look: Jude Law and John Malkovich Bring Religious Power Back to HBO
Jude Law and John Malkovich join forces as two religious powerhouses in the first look at HBO’s “The New Pope.” The limited series is Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino’s follow-up to “The Young Pope,” which earned critical acclaim when it debuted on HBO in January 2017. Sorrentino is once again directing all eight episodes of the series and co-wrote the scripts with Umberto Contarello and Stefano Bises.

While HBO has debuted our first look at “The New Pope” above, the network is not giving any plot details away. Whether or not “The New Pope” is a continuation of the story in “The Young Pope” has yet to be confirmed, although the official photo suggests that’s the case as it features Jude Law looking very much like his original character Lenny Belardo/Pope Pius Xiii. John Malkovich’s casting was confirmed in July 2018, and the legendary actor is expected to

The New Pope First Look: Jude Law and John Malkovich Make Quite a Papal Pair

His Holiness… es?

HBO has graced us with our first look at The New Pope, a sequel series to the 2017 miniseries The Young Pope, which starred Jude Law as brash fictional pontiff Lenny, aka Pope Pius Xiii. Based on the new photo above, Law will reprise his role as Lenny in the eight-episode series, joined by new cast addition John Malkovich. HBO is mum on Malkovich’s New Pope role, but judging by his pristine vestments and skullcap — not to mention the series title — we’re betting he’s Lenny replacement in the Vatican. (The Young Pope‘s finale ended with Lenny collapsing,

First Look at Jude Law, John Malkovich in ‘The New Pope’
A first-look image of Paolo Sorrentino’s TV series “The New Pope” has been released showing John Malkovich and Jude Law both wearing papal vestments, which appears to confirm rumors that Malkovich will play the new pontiff. The show is currently shooting in Venice.

Sky, HBO, and Canal Plus have also announced that “Homeland” star Mark Ivanir has joined the cast of “The New Pope,” as well as veteran British actor Henry Goodman (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”); Denmark’s Ulrich Thomsen (“The Blacklist”); and Italy’s Massimo Ghini (“No Place Like Home”). Details are being kept under wraps about their roles in the limited eight-episode series, which is not, strictly speaking, a second season of “The Young Pope.”

Malkovich’s casting had been previously announced. Sharon Stone is also widely reported to be a guest star on “The New Pope,” but a representative for production company Wildside declined to comment Wednesday.

Emmy episode analysis: Mandy Patinkin (‘Homeland’) assembles a team to investigate Russians in ‘Species Jump’
Mandy Patinkin has this year earned his fourth Best Drama Supporting Actor Emmy nomination for portraying CIA operative Saul Berenson on Showtime’s “Homeland.” This marks the actor’s seventh career nomination, having previously been recognized for “Chicago Hope” (1995 and 1999), winning on the first occasion, and “The Larry Sanders Show” (1992). Patinkin, also a Tony Award winner (Best Musical Featured Actor for “Evita” in 1980), has submitted for voters’ consideration the sixth episode of the season, “Species Jump.”

In the episode, Saul gathers a team, including ex-cia Russian expert Sandy (Catherine Curtin) and tech specialist Clint (Peter Vack), to investigate how Russian national Yevgeny Gromov (Costa Ronin) was involved in the Lucasville Massacre, a violent standoff between the FBI and followers of right-wing radio personality Brett O’Keefe (Jake Weber) that resulted in several casualties.

The New Pope: First Image From HBO's Young Pope Sequel Series

Joseph Baxter Jan 9, 2019

The New Pope, HBO’s sequel series to The Young Pope, will see return Jude Law joined by co-star John Malkovich.

While HBO’s 2016 series The Young Pope was intended as a limited series prestige project from BAFTA-winning director Paolo Sorrentino, plans subsequently emerged for a follow-up series, titled The New Pope. Indeed, the follow up series will showcase a new pope, since HBO has sent white smoke signals of confirmation for Oscar-winning actor John Malkovich.

John Malkovich was revealed as the star of HBO’s The New Pope back in July. While the details of Malkovich’s character were not provided (and remain scarce as of this January 9 update), the very title of the follow-up series does little to hide the fate of said character. While the title, The New Pope, has been known for over a year, having arrived quickly after The Young Pope completed its run,

Harvey Keitel, Pavel Lungin Talk Russia and Israel on Set of ‘Esau’
Russian director Kirill Serebrennikov missed the premiere of his film “Leto” in Cannes this month because he is under house arrest. In January, authorities banned “The Death of Stalin” from being screened in Russia, complaining that Armando Iannucci’s satirical movie depicted “ideological warfare” and extremism.”

But acclaimed Russian-French director Pavel Lungin thinks that such crackdowns under Vladimir Putin could end up being a creative blessing.

“Censorship always brings about some kind of force among the cultural society,” Lungin said. “We have the great experience of the Soviet Union, where Soviet censorship created such wonderful films, like [those of Andrei] Tarkovsky. Perhaps a little bit of difficulty only makes an artist stronger.”

Lungin spoke to Variety on the Israeli set of “Esau,” his English-language debut, an adaptation by author Meir Shalev of his novel of the same name. The film follows a 40-year-old writer who returns to his family home after half a

‘Bye Bye Germany’ by Director Sam Garbarski

Review by Peter BelsitoThe film is a deeply felt yet unsentimental, often wry look at a group of Jewish friends — all Nazi-era survivors — who, in 1946 Frankfurt, unite to sell high-end linens to raise the funds to emigrate to America. Not your typical Holocaust-inspired drama.

These clever door-to-door peddlers, led by David Bermann (a superb Moritz Bleibtreu), whose family’s once-thriving linen store was seized by the Nazis and now stands in ruins provide an interesting context in which the filmmakers build an interesting deeply felt story.

David is suspected of collaboration with the Nazis and is questioned by tough, cold and very attractive American Army investigator, Sara (Antje Traue), who suggeststhat David, whose parents and brothers perished at Auschwitz, may have been working with the Nazis.

These interrogation sessions give way to flashbacks of how the jokey David, while imprisoned in a concentration camp, was plucked by its loathsome

Movie Review – 7 Days in Entebbe (2018)

7 Days in Entebbe. 2018

Directed by José Padilha

Starring Rosamond Pike, Daniel Bruhl, Lior Ashkenazi, Eddie Marsan, Ben Schnetzer, Nonso Anozie, Denis Ménochet, Brontis Jodorowsky, Zina Zinchenko, Mark Ivanir, and Peter Sullivan

Synopsis:

Inspired by the true events of the 1976 hijacking of an Air France flight en route from Tel Aviv to Paris, and the most daring rescue mission ever attempted.

All three movies inside of 7 Days in Entebbe are intriguing, but director José Padilha (most known for directing episodes of the hit Netflix series Narcos and infamously responsible for helming the unnecessary updated version of Paul Verhoeven’s classic sci-fi sociopolitical satirical masterpiece Robocop) is apparently completely oblivious as to what to home in on. Call it an identity crisis as the script from Gregory Burke fails juggling three different perspectives; a World War 2 guilt-ridden radical left-wing German couple carrying out the true story based 1976 Air France flight traveling from
