Harvey Weinstein, who for the past week has been the subject of scrutiny after a New York Times report unearthed decades of the influential Hollywood figure’s sexual harassment against women, has been accused of rape by three different women.

Two new reports feature 20 more women going public with Weinstein’s harassment or assault, including Hollywood royalty Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie. The reports come two days after Weinstein was fired from his position at the Weinstein Company, where one-third of the board of directors has resigned.

harvey weinstein fired

Harvey Weinstein has been fired from his position at The Weinstein Company after allegations of sexual harassment stretching back decades have surfaced.

In a scathing New York Times report published last week, the Weinstein Company co-founder and movie producer was accused by multiple women of exposing himself, inappropriately touching them, and paying off accusers who came forward. Three days later, the board of directors at The Weinstein Company ousted him from the film studio.

‘Scanners’ TV Show is Back in Development

Scanners TV SHOW

Remember Scanners? It’s David Cronenberg‘s 1981 horror shocker featuring a scene where a man’s head explodes, and then you rewind the scene and play it back to watch the explode head in slow motion. Now it looks like the previously rumored but never realized TV series adaptation of the film is back on. Will a head explode every single week? It better, or those ratings might slip. Read more about the Scanners TV show below.

current war tiff

The last thing cinema needs right now is another movie about a brilliant man whose brilliance is expressed through being a stubborn jerk. We already have a wealth of these artist as needlessly mean, antisocial guy portraits, and to keep adding more at this point goes well beyond beating a dead horse.

But Me and Earl and the Dying Girl director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon manages to get some great milage by taking such a setup and approaching it through a deconstructed lense with The Current War. The brilliant jerk in question this time is none other than the Wizard of Menlo Park himself, Thomas Edison. Edison, that brilliant inventor and sometimes thief, is played by Benedict Cumberbatch, an actor who has made almost an entire career playing brilliant jerks. It’s typecasting to the nth degree, but it also works. Cumberbatch brings an amusing, detached air to Edison, playing the genius as an overly competitive, short-tempered savant who wants to slap his name on everything.

The Current War Trailer

Today, electricity surges through our homes, offices and restaurants and we’re hard-pressed to get anything done without the power it provides. But back in the 19th century, electricity was in its infancy, and it was at the center of a war between two of the greatest minds of the time to see who would control the marketplace for energy. The story of that historic battle is coming to the big screen this fall.

The Current War stars Benedict Cumberbatch as inventor Thomas Edison and Michael Shannon as entrepreneur and engineer George Westinghouse as the two battle to see whose idea for bringing electricity to the masses would become the primary source for power. The battle stems from Edison’s company wanting to use direct current while Westinghouse thought alternating current was the way to go, hence the title of the movie. Read More »

wind river trailer

Wind River is a brutal and somber neo-Western punctured with sudden bursts of violence, similar to director and screenwriter Talor Sheridan‘s previous films that he penned, Hell or High Water and Sicario. A high-speed action movie it is not, yet that is what the final trailer for Wind River makes it out to be.

The final trailer for Wind River hit the internet a day before the film goes into wide release after premiering at select theaters across the country. The movie, while great, is admittedly hard to market to a summer audience — hence the trailer making it look like a spiritual sequel to Renner’s own Bourne Legacy.

Tulip Fever red band trailer

The Weinstein Company has allowed many of their titles to sit on the shelf and collect dust for years. One of their latest movies to be delayed more than once, Tulip Fever, is finally coming out after a year-long delay. Not only did The Weinstein release another trailer for the Dane DeHaan and Alicia Vikander-led film, but it’s a red band trailer. Director Justin Chadwick‘s (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom) movie isn’t the kind of project that screams out for a red band trailer to show what kind of movie it truly is, but TWC definitely believes sex sells because that’s exactly what this new trailer is selling.

Below, watch the new Tulip Fever red band trailer.

Knight Rider Movie - John Cena & Kevin Hart

Hot on the heels of Knight Rider star David Hasselhoff hoping that Robert Rodriguez could direct him in a Logan-esque film adaptation of the beloved 1980s TV series featuring the Baywatch star as an aged Michael Knight, we have news on the development of a Knight Rider movie, but it’s not going to make David Hasselhoff happy at all.

The Weinstein Company is reportedly taking a crack at making a Knight Rider movie, but rather than taking a more serious approach, the project will follow in the footsteps of 21 Jump Street by making it an action comedy. Furthermore, they want to put John Cena behind the steering wheel as Michael Knight and they’re considering Kevin Hart to provide the voice of the talking car called KITT. Read More »

Wind River Trailer

August and September are often (and rightfully) viewed as studio dumping grounds, the place where films that don’t fit the summer and awards season molds get tossed. But sometimes, this is the perfect time to release a smaller movie that could vanish between the cracks elsewhere in the year. It’s even the ideal time to release a serious-minded thriller for adults that was a hit on the festival scene earlier in the year.

Enter Wind River, a mystery about an FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) and an experienced tracker (Jeremy Renner) trying to solve a murder on Native American reservation. We dug the movie at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and the scorching heat of August feels like the right time to watch a movie set entirely in the ice and snow. If you want to know more, a bunch of clips and featurettes have arrived to herald the film’s release today.
