‘Deadpool 2’ Will Not Recast T.J. Miller

T.J. Miller Deadpool 2

Ridley Scott set a precedent when he worked quickly to remove Kevin Spacey from All the Money in the World following sexual misconduct accusations against the actor – but don’t expect the Deadpool 2 filmmakers to follow in Scott’s footsteps. Weeks after a story broke accusing Untitled Deadpool Sequel co-star T.J. Miller of sexual assault, the film’s producer confirmed that since Deadpool 2 is in its final editing stage, Miller’s performance would likely remain intact.

Dunkirk - 2018 ACE Eddie Award Nominations

Even though we’re now officially into 2018, awards season continues in Hollywood. The Golden Globes are coming up this weekend and now the various guilds and organizations that represent the talented people who work behind the scenes of your favorite movies are putting forth the nominations for their own awards.

female led films

The last time women lead the highest-performing movies at the box office, Elizabeth Taylor slinked around an eastern Mississippi estate in a skin-tight white négligée. But 59 years later, women rule the box office again.

The three top-performing films of 2017, Star Wars: The Last JediBeauty and the Beast, and Wonder Woman, were all headlined by female leads, the first time this has happened in cinematic history since 1958. It’s been a long time coming, but I can now proudly proclaim: Who run the world? Girls.

Could there be another acquisition that could shake Hollywood as much as the historic Disney-Fox deal did? With the rumblings around Apple approaching a deal with Netflix, it’s possible.

Jodie Foster Superhero Movie

Ever since X-Men was released back in 2000, there has been a plethora of superhero movies in theaters every single year. Though the early 2000s were full of a lot of garbage thanks to studios snatching up every comic book property they could get their hands on and rushing them into production, the superhero genre has evolved, and we’ve gotten great superhero movies like The Dark Knight, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and more. However, not everyone agrees with that sentiment.

Actress and filmmaker Jodie Foster has been making the publicity rounds in the wake of the release of the new season of Black Mirror after directing an episode of the sci-fi anthology series, and she didn’t have anything kind to say about superhero movies and studio blockbusters in general. In fact, she says it’s “ruining the viewing habits of the American population and then ultimately the rest of the world.” But James Gunn, director of the superhero blockbuster franchise Guardians of the Galaxy, respectfully disagrees with these Jodie Foster superhero movies comments.

MoviePass Has Reached One Million Subscribers

MoviePass ads

The movie theater ticket subscription service MoviePass shook up Hollywood earlier this year when a majority stake in the company was bought by Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc., which resulted in the monthly service dropping their price to just $10 a month. For that price, subscribers are able to see one movie each day as long as it’s not in IMAX or 3D, and they can see the same movie as many times as they want to. It’s one hell of a bargain, and movie-going audiences have been paying attention.

Just before Christmas, MoviePass subscriptions had reached 1 million paid subscribers, and if the credit given to the service for raising movie theater attendance is any indicator, the service is only going to get bigger. Read More »
