Godfather Part III Recut

The Godfather and The Godfather Part II are often hailed as two of the best American movies ever made, but the same can’t be said for The Godfather Part III. The sequel actually received fairly good reviews when it opened in 1990. It also did well at the box office and scored seven Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture. But over the years, Godfather Part III has become something of a punchline, with many zeroing in on the clumsy, strained performance of Sofia Coppola, playing daughter to Al Pacino‘s Michael Corleone. Now, after years of negative feedback, director Francis Ford Coppola has gone back and recut the film into Mario Puzo’s The Godfather, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone. Will this new cut fix the film’s notorious problems? According to co-star Diane Keaton, the answer is yes.

hugh grant next project

Hugh Grant has found his new niche playing the baddie. After shedding his rom-com leading man persona to play the flamboyant villain in Paddington 2 (in what is arguably his best role to date), Grant is digging deeper into the dark roles that are being offered him, recently coming off playing the sociopathic antagonist of David E. Kelley’s HBO series, The Undone. And he’s got one more under his belt, the actor teased, revealing that his next project will be a “mockumentary about 2020” from Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker.

David Lynch Netflix Series

David Lynch might be heading to Netflix. The acclaimed filmmaker has been a little tightlipped about what he’s doing next, but a report in Production Weekly reveals that Lynch is set to direct a new Netflix series with the working title Wisteria. There’s next to no information beyond that, and Netflix is declining to comment at the moment. But the prospect of something new from David Lynch is definitely grounds for excitement.

noah hawley star trek update

At one point, it seemed very likely that Fargo and Legion creator Noah Hawley would be involved with both an Alien TV series and Star Trek 4. But these days, both projects are looking less and less likely. In a new interview, Hawley confirms that there’s next to no movement on either property. As Hawley tells it, he hasn’t really been involved with anything regarding Alien for a few years, and while Star Trek 4 came “very close to production,” things ultimately fizzled out.

Roberto Benigni Pinocchio

Roberto Benigni became an international star after he won an Academy Award for Best Actor for his work in Life is Beautiful, a film Benigni also directed and co-wrote. But Benigni’s star plummeted a bit in the years to come, worsened by his directorial follow-up, 2002’s Pinocchio. The live-action take on the classic tale was critically panned, most notably for the fact that the middle-aged Benigni cast himself as the puppet boy. You might think that experience would keep Benigni away from all-things Pinocchio-related, but no. He’s starring in yet another take on the tale – this time as Geppetto, the woodcarver who crafts the puppet.
