Previous drafts of the film were written by white, American writers David Ayer, Jonathan Herman and Joel Coen & Ethan Coen — which could have opened up “Scarface” to charges of cultural insensitivity. The new film will reimagine the the 1932 “Scarface” — and the 1983 Brian DePalma version, which starred Al Pacino as Cuban refugee Tony Montana — as the story of a Mexican drug lord in Los...
But when Bigelow solidified Detroit as her next film, that left The True American in limbo a bit. The film takes place in the days following the 9/11 attacks and revolves around a Muslim immigrant and Bangladesh Air …
Universal-Legendary’s “Pacific Rim Uprising” — the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 “Pacific Rim” — has been forecast to score from $22 million to $29 million as it expands to 3,708 locations at this weekend’s domestic box office. That will probably be enough to surpass Disney-Marvel’s blockbuster “Black Panther” following its stellar five-week reign at the top of the domestic box office.
The original “Pacific Rim,” set in the near future and starring Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Charlie Hunnam, opened with $37 million domestically in 2013 on its way to $101.8 million. It went on to gross $411 million at the worldwide box office, led by $112 million in China.
“Pacific Rim Uprising” is set 10 years after the Battle of the Breach with a new generation of Jaeger pilots ready to combat the evolving Kaiju monsters.

Following a heated bidding war, the studio won the rights to the untitled pitch from Chastain’s Freckle Films and fast-tracked, adding Showalter as helmer. Universal beat out Fox and Paramount for the pitch, which follows two women fighting the elements to make it home for Christmas.
Chastain and Kelly Carmichael wrote the original treatment and “Crazy Rich Asians” scribe Peter Chiarelli is on board to pen the script. Chastain will produce with her company Freckle Films, along with Maven Pictures. Carmichael, Celine Rattray, and Trudie Styler will also produce.

Fifteen-year-old Leah (Nicole Munoz) is furious and miserable when her combative if well-meaning, recently-widowed mother (“The Walking Dead’s” Laurie Holden) relocates them both to a house in the woods, isolating her already conspicuously disgruntled only child from the few friends she has, notably bestie Janice (Chloe Rose) and almost-boyfriend Aaron (Eric Osbourn).

Cédric Klapisch’s “Back to Burgundy” is the closest any film has come to expressing that special symbiotic relationship between real people, the soil they tend, and the ineffably personal concoction that results from that connection. Though not a documentary, this gorgeous French family
There is another ‘Me Too’ movement,” quipped Sandra Stern, president of Lionsgate TV Group, “which is all of these creators who are saying, ‘why am I not getting that huge deal? Where is my $100 million up front?”
Stern was joined by top programmers at Amazon, NBCUniversal and Paradigm for a provocative, wide-ranging discussion on the state of series television at the university law school’s 42 annual UCLA Entertainment Symposium.
As I watched the opening scenes of this week’s “Jane the Virgin,” a few questions percolated in my mind.
On a day on which I felt extremely nerve-wracked about the state of the world (again), was it a good idea to watch this particular installment of the show? Last week’s closing image had the central characters dropping to their knees after Xiomara’s cancer diagnosis was revealed. That scene was enough to almost destroy me. Would
The increasingly frequent exits of staff members, Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury,” and Vladimir Putin all get the satirical treatment in the new piece, released on Friday.
The clip begins with a group of staff members leaving the White House through a door with the sign “Recently Fired Key Personnel Exit.” While they look for public transportation, one woman shouts, “You can’t fire me. I was just here on the tour!
Although “What We Started” is largely concerned with presenting an abridged overview of dance music’s evolution, it does locate an interesting hook by profiling two DJs as they approach two very different milestones.
Justin Baldoni is no stranger to directing. Before he booked the role of Rafael on the CW’s “Jane The Virgin” he had spent two years focusing primarily on behind the scenes work directing and producing with his company Wayfarer Entertainment. There he has helmed docuseries such as “My Last Days” and he’s even prepping a feature film. But his first behind-the-scenes scripted television credit just came in the fourth season of “Jane The Virgin.
Are you planning to have any events related to Time’s Up or #MeToo during the festival?
It’s not the festival’s role to organize “#MeToo events,” because we don’t have the skills or the legitimacy to do so. We prefer to bring together all the initiatives which will be launched here and there at Cannes. We are having a lot of discussions, we’re exchanging thoughts to get ready for the festival. We are also considering our own practices. For instance,
