China Cancels Theatrical Release of Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’

China Cancels Theatrical Release of Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’
A week before its planned arrival, China has decided not to release Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood in theaters.

The director’s ode to late-Sixties Hollywood would have marked the first time a non-edited Tarantino film received a widespread release in China, where Tarantino’s violent films don’t make it past the country’s strict censors. Additionally, Variety reports that Tarantino was steadfast in his refusal to edit the film in an effort to placate Chinese censors.

Deadpool Writers Waiting For Kevin Feige’s Approval To Start Work On Third Film

Deadpool Writers Waiting For Kevin Feige’s Approval To Start Work On Third Film
Ever since the House of Mouse gained control of 20th Century Fox, swallowing everything the company had in its repertoire, the question has been flopping between “when” and “if” we’ll be getting Deadpool 3. Thankfully, the meter seems to now be set on “when,” and the answer, though this has yet to be officially confirmed by Disney, is 2022, according to our sources.

This speculation and excitement has been propelled by the release of writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick’s latest project, Zombieland: Double Tap. Earlier this week, Reese and Wernick revealed that they were planning to continue the mouthy series in its R-rated universe, a barrier which no McU movie has yet crossed.

Now, in an interview with Fandom, they provided some insight on when exactly we could see the film. And apparently, all the eggs are in Kevin Feige’s basket.

Streaming: Meryl Streep kicks off a season of starry Netflix offerings
Get comfy on the couch with a new Soderbergh and a bravura turn from Eddie Murphy, the first of the streaming giant’s big autumn films

Autumn is upon us, and with it the long, often tedious publicity trail to the Oscars. The late-summer film festivals, from Venice through to London, have had their say, while nomination lists for some of the season’s earliest precursor prizes are being compiled. For Netflix, this now means the rollout of their shiniest awards hopefuls on a near-weekly basis: Martin Scorsese’s mob epic The Irishman and Mati Diop’s Cannes sensation Atlantics are among the streaming service’s November attractions.

This month, however, they’re kicking off with two of their lighter prestige offerings. Fresh from the Venice fest, Steven Soderbergh’s The Laundromat has been available to stream since Friday, while blaxploitation biopic Dolemite Is My Name, which prompted murmurs of

Bruce Springsteen Returns to NJ Hometown for Surprise ‘Western Stars’ Introduction

Bruce Springsteen Returns to NJ Hometown for Surprise ‘Western Stars’ Introduction
Bruce Springsteen returned to his hometown of Freehold, New Jersey to offer a surprise introduction to the first public multiplex viewing of his concert/documentary film, “Western Stars.”

Dressed simply in a brown jacket, Springsteen took a moment to say a few words at the AMC Freehold 14 movie theater on Saturday night.

“We knew we weren’t going to tour, so I tried to figure out a way to get the music to you,” the 70-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer told the audience.

After making a few brief remarks about filming the movie at his barn in Colts Neck, and in Joshua Tree National Park, Springsteen asked a small favor.

“If you have applause, I would save it for the end of the film,” he said. “Because the editing and the pacing of the film has its own message.”

“Thanks for coming out,” he continued. “Thanks for supporting me all these years,

‘Missing Link’ Team Says Why Creating ‘Little Avocado With a Face’ Was Most Complicated Thing Laika’s Done

‘Missing Link’ Team Says Why Creating ‘Little Avocado With a Face’ Was Most Complicated Thing Laika’s Done
Though it might seem like just any other puppet you’d find at the Laika stop-motion animation studio, its hardest challenge yet was creating the furry, plump and bright orange monster that became the title character of their latest film “Missing Link.”

The team of stop motion animators had to determine how to make Link’s belly jiggle as it walked, how to stretch its arms, and how its fur should move in the wind. And like any troublesome actor, that often meant this diva of a puppet frequently showed up late to set.

“This little avocado with a face is the most complicated thing we’ve ever created at the studio,” Brian McLean, Laika’s director of rapid prototyping told TheWrap’s Steve Pond following a screening of “Missing Link” at the Landmark Theatres in Los Angeles. “His simple shape and silhouette was really difficult to figure out how

During an interview on Friday, Rooney was pressed by CNN’s Poppy Harlow while discussing acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney’s Thursday admission that Trump engaged in a quid pro quo with Ukraine. Rooney said he hadn’t come to any conclusions but added, “I don’t think you can rule anything out unless you know all the facts.”

Megyn Kelly on Her Public Resurfacing: ‘I’ve Chosen to Speak Up for Women Being Harassed and Abused’
Megyn Kelly’s name has popped up in the media more in the past week than in the entire past year because workplace sexual harassment is back in the news, and it has prompted her to speak out and not ‘just sit back and enjoy my money.'”

Friday, news broke that Kelly had been among the notable newswomen to sign a letter urging Comcast to launch an investigation into NBC News after NBC made it clear it wouldn’t be pursuing a new investigation into internal handling of accusations against former “Today” host Matt Lauer.

That same day, ABC News’ chief political analyst Matthew Dowd, tweeted, “I really don’t want to hear from either Matt Lauer or Megyn Kelly. Can’t they just fade away and enjoy their large pot of money?”

'About Love': Film Review | Mumbai 2019

Shot over a period of three years in her own home, Archana Atul Phadke’s amusing feature-length doc isn’t “all about love” but more modestly About Love, focusing on one extended family – her own – and making no pretense to finding that elusive emotion. Constant bickering and low-level tension characterize this closely-knit crew. Laughter alternates with tears, a death and a wedding, and by the surprising end of the film, you feel you know the inner workings of two long-term marriages. It bowed in the Mumbai Film Festival’s select India Gold section and will be a crowd-pleaser ...

Mumbai: Why Book to Screen Adaptations Are Catching on in India

India has seen its fair share of films that have drawn on literary classics in the past, even though the practice may not be as sustained and organized as it is in Hollywood and other film industries. One of the notable examples is Bengali author Sarat Chandra Chatterjee's iconic romance tale Devdas which has seen over two dozen cinematic versions over the years. These include its first adaptation with a 1928 silent film to leading Bollywood director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 2002 blockbuster starring Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit which screened at Cannes.

‘Game of Thrones’ Star Emilia Clarke: Playing Daenerys ‘Taught Me About Lady Balls’
Emilia Clarke looks back fondly at her eight seasons on HBO’s epic fantasy series, “Game of Thrones,” and realizes that playing Daenerys taught her something vital about herself: “She taught me about lady balls,” the four-time Emmy nominee said.

No question about it, Daenerys became a formidable conqueror and ruler by the time the show ended earlier this year, and Clarke is the first to acknowledge that.

“She taught me what it feels like to be in a room and be heard. She wielded such power, calmness and such poise,” Clarke said in a new interview with The Daily Telegraph.

Does ‘Joker’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?

  • The Wrap
“Joker” may not win the box office for the third weekend in a row, but I doubt Warner Bros will be too upset — it’s the studio’s biggest movie of the year, already surpassing the domestic and global totals for last month’s “It Chapter Two.”

Though the film’s critical reception has cooled considerably since it garnered a lengthy standing ovation in Venice, that obviously hasn’t affected its box office take. It turns out that dominating the pop culture discourse the way “Joker” has can be a very, very good thing.

Anyway, the question you came here for an answer to is whether “Joker” has any bonus content during or after the credits, following the trend of post- and mid-credits scenes that have become just about ubiquitous in movies based on comic books, with even DC films joining the trend in recent years.

'Zombieland 2' and How a Subgenre Evolved Beyond a Fad
[This story contains spoilers for Zombieland: Double Tap]

It’s been 10 years since we last entered Zombieland, and nearly 20 since the undead became an inescapable part of our 21st century pop culture zeitgeist. We may run, we may hide, we may even fight against them, but zombies have us cornered. While there’s certainly reason to be weary of the outpouring of zombie content that populates our cinemas, television screens, novels, and comics, there’s arguably even more reason to be excited as the horror subgenre evolves and we enter stage 2 of our contemporary infection.
