‘Fleabag’ ascending! It’s rising in every Emmy category as Experts update their predictions

“Fleabag” was overlooked at the Emmys two years ago when its first season was eligible for consideration.

As of this writing 9 out of 20 Experts are predicting it will be nominated for Best Comedy Series: Jen Chaney (Vulture), Debbie Day (Rotten Tomatoes), Eric Deggans (NPR), Kelly Lawler (USA Today), Robert Rorke (New York Post), Anne Thompson (IndieWire), Ben Travers (IndieWire), Ken Tucker (Yahoo) and Glenn Whipp (La Times).

‘Tolkien’ Official Trailer: Nicholas Hoult Tackles J.R.R. Before ‘The Lord of the Rings’
Are you a “Lord of the Rings” fan wondering where writer J.R.R. Tolkien found the inspiration to come up with Frodo, Sauron, and the entirety of Middle Earth? If you answered yes, then Fox Searchlight’s upcoming biographical drama “Tolkien” is the movie to see this summer movie season. Giving the “Rings” author the “Finding Neverland” and “Goodbye Christopher Robin” treatment, “Tolkien” looks at the life of the writer before he created Middle Earth.

The official synopsis from Fox Searchlight reads: “‘Tolkien’ explores the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school. This takes him into the outbreak of World War I, which threatens to tear the ‘fellowship’ apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-Earth novels.”

  • The Wrap
Fox Searchlight is planning to remake “Sleeping With the Enemy,” the 1991 film starring Julia Roberts, as part of a new overall producer deal with Damian Jones and his DJ Films Limited, the company announced Tuesday.

Jones, who first partnered with Fox Searchlight in 2016, is developing a reimagining of “Sleeping With the Enemy” with writer and director Nia DaCosta.

Alex Lawther & Director Toby MacDonald talk about their movie Old Boys

  • HeyUGuys
In Toby MacDonald’s debut feature Old Boys, Alex Lawther stars as an awkward pupil at an all-boys boarding school who helps the handsome but dim school-hero pursue the teenage daughter of their French teacher in this charming new re-imagining of Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac.

Earlier this week, HeyUGuys were lucky enough to speak to both Lawther and MacDonald during what seemed like a gruelling day of interviews and Q&As about their experiences of working on such an unusual project, and the challenges they met along the way.

For those still unfamiliar with Lawther’s name or body of work, it’s safe to say that if you’ve watched any TV or have been to the cinema regularly in the last couple of years, there is a strong chance that you might have come across the shy and softly spoken actor one way or another. At

‘Tolkien’ First Trailer: Nicholas Hoult Is the Man Who Created Middle Earth

‘Tolkien’ First Trailer: Nicholas Hoult Is the Man Who Created Middle Earth
Whether it’s J.M. Barrie and “Finding Neverland” or A. A. Milne and “Goodbye Christopher Robin,” no famous author is safe from the biopic treatment in which the origins of his or her greatest literary work is contextualized in their personal lives. Next up in the genre is J. R. R. Tolkien, the English writer who created Middle Earth and wrote the massively successful “The Lord of the Rings” franchise and “The Hobbit,” among other notable works like “The Silmarillion.”

The official synopsis from Fox Searchlight reads: “‘Tolkien’ explores the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school. This takes him into the outbreak of World War I, which threatens to tear the ‘fellowship’ apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-Earth novels.”

The Evolution of Winnie the Pooh, from AA Milne to ‘Christopher Robin’ (Photos)
Not every movie can play on the nostalgia factor for every generation, but no matter how old you are, there’s a good chance that you grew up with Winnie the Pooh in some form. The character created by A.A. Milne has endured for over 90 years as a beloved figure of children’s literature and television. And in that time, that silly old bear has been through a lot. Here, we look at the history of Pooh Bear across his many books and cartoons, all the way up to the live action “Christopher Robin.”

The first Winnie the Pooh story written by Alan Alexander Milne first appeared in the London Evening News in 1925 on Christmas Eve. The story, “The Wrong Sort of Bees,” would be the first chapter in the first volume of stories, “Winnie-the-Pooh,” published on October 14, 1926. Milne named the boy in the story after his son, Christopher Robin Milne,

Sony tried to offload Holmes & Watson to Netflix

Over the past year, Netflix has earned itself a bit of a reputation as a dumping ground for studios looking to offload their turkeys – see The Cloverfield Paradox and Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, both of which it picked up for distribution from Paramount and Warner Bros. respectively.

However, it seems that the streaming giant does have some standards, as Deadline is reporting that Sony had tried to sell off the new Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly comedy Holmes & Watson after disastrous test screenings, but Netflix rejected the offer.

The disastrous test screening reactions for Holmes & Watson were followed by disastrous reviews (9% critic score and 27% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes), and the comedy has earned just $15 million in its first four days at the Christmas box office from a production budget of $42 million.

Bali Festival Expands Support for Indonesian Film Industry Revival

  • Variety
Triawan Munaf, chairman of the Indonesian Agency for Creative Economy (Bekraf) was on hand on Monday for the opening of the Bali International Film Festival (Balinale). His presence was intended as a sign that Indonesia, Asia’s sleeping giant as a film player, is rousing itself.

It was also an endorsement of the indie festival which, in its 12th year, is adding industry functions and seeking relevance far away from capital city, Jakarta.

Hosted in two Cinemaxx multiplexes in Denpasar and Kuta, the festival aims to reach different strands of Bali’s population, natives, long-term resident expatriates, and passing tourists.

A showcase of films by Roland Joffe is arguably the highlight of the event. The British director was a key figure at the BalinaleX industry conference on Sunday and is on hand through the week to present his multi-Oscar winning “The Killing Fields,” and Palme d’Or winner “The Mission.
