Quentin Tarantino Wants Al Pacino

This past week, Quentin Tarantino officially locked down Leonardo DiCaprio for a role in his developing but untitled movie about cult leader and murderer Charles Manson and his “family.” Now one more surprising name has emerged as a hopeful collaborator in front of the camera.

In one of the reports confirming Leonardo DiCaprio’s involvement in the project, an additional piece of information indicated that the Pulp Fiction and Inglourious Basterds writer/director is hoping to land Al Pacino for a role in his movie as well. If Tarantino gets everyone he wants for this movie, this could be an all-star line-up of talent the likes of which we rarely see together in a single project Read More »

all the money in the world reshoots

UPDATE: The controversy behind this pay discrepancy has come to an end with Mark Wahlberg doing the right thing. Read the full update at the end of our story.

As the pay gap debate continues to gain steam in the wake of news that Michelle Williams was paid less than 1% of Mark Wahlberg‘s paycheck for the All the Money in the World reshoots, more details emerge about Wahlberg’s deal over his fee.

Wahlberg reportedly withheld approval of Christopher Plummer as the replacement for Kevin Spacey to get his $1.5 million fee, refusing to sign off on the casting unless he received additional payment. It looks like the only thing it would take to get Marky Mark to take time out of his busy pants-dropping schedule is some good old-fashioned co-star leveraging.

Little Bitches trailer

As we step further into 2018, it’s now dawning on me that we’re only a couple years away from looking back on the last ten years of filmmaking and assessing major industry trends that have happened over the past decade. And while I’ll hold most of those observations until then, one of the things I’ve noticed is that, after an influx of teen comedies about 20 years ago, entries in that genre seem to have largely dropped off in the past few years.

But an upcoming film called Little Bitches proves that if you have a solid script and a talented young cast, the teen high school comedy will never go out of style. Check out the red-band trailer and two exclusive clips from the film below.

Fate of the Furious Fast and Furious Vin Diesel

Valiant may publish some pretty terrific superhero comic books, but they’re not exactly a household name. So if Sony’s planned cinematic universe adapting these characters is going to take flight, it’s going to need a movie star. Someone fast. Maybe even someone furious.

Vin Diesel is currently in talks to star in Bloodshot, one of two planned films (so far) that will kickstart the Valiant superhero movie universe.

The Girl in the Spider's Web Cast

Sony Pictures continues to fill out the cast of The Girl in the Spider’s Web, their relaunch of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo franchise, with some impressive talent.

The breakfast Club Criterion Blu-ray

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

Happy New Year! 2018 is just getting started – there’s going to be a whole slew of exciting new Blu-ray titles to hit shelves this year. But first, here are some so-so films!

What we mostly have here are what I’d like to think of as holiday leftovers – films that weren’t big enough to hit stores as part of the holiday shopping rush. That doesn’t mean there’s nothing of value here. In fact, there are some surprisingly good titles, including a Jackie Chan movie that rises above its premise, a Watergate-based drama, a survivalist film where Kate Winslet and Idris Elba crash a plane and then get sexy, and more. There’s also a surprisingly controversial new release from The Criterion Collection. Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.
