12 minutes ago Previously on [pause] Survivor, Jeff Probst gave conflicting information on the possibility of an all-winners season. Now reports suggest Season 40, filming this summer to air in 2020, may be the long-awaited champions battle royale. Survivor films two seasons back-to-back each spring and summer, airing the first in the fall and the second from late winter to spring. Season 39 is now filming for its premiere in 2019-2020, and that leaves Season 40 to air this time next year. Season 40 will kick off 2020, which marks 20 years since Survivor first premiered in May 2000. According to Inside Survivor, to mark the milestone, the show is inviting back a cast of former winners to compete in Season 40. That season will start filming next month, and casting spoilers will probably start coming out around then, if this is true.

THE rivalry between Mary, Queen of Scots, and Elizabeth I has fascinated generations of scholars, playwrights and novelists — not to mention filmmakers. Previous screen outings have provided great roles for Katharine Hepburn and Florence Eldridge (in 1936’s Mary of Scotland), Glenda Jackson and Vanessa Redgrave (1971’s Mary, Queen of Scots), and Cate Blanchett and Samantha Morton (2007’s Elizabeth: The Golden Age).

Based on John Guy’s 2004 biography, My Heart is My Own, the film has Ronan’s Mary and Robbie’s Bess as rivals in both power and love, fighting for their sovereignty and independence in a masculine world. Only one queen can win this game of thrones, a … [Read more...] about Queens promise an Oscars ‘battle royal’
This splatter-forward comedy suffers from a lack of resources, but makes up for it with nasty energy. By Jacob Knight Nov. 02, 2018 There's been a select few instances where the influence of extreme Japanese filmmaker Kinji Fukasaku has trickled into the American genre film landscape. The most obvious is Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill (which was dedicated to the violent maestro), while the work of Neveldine/Taylor certainly owes more than a little debt to that auteur's hyper-kinetic camerawork. More recently, Joe Lynch's Mayhem felt like, if you replaced everyone but Steve Yuen (who was deliberately placed at the forefront of that DTV splatter opus) with actors of Asian descent, you'd have a rather obvious homage to the late Battle Royale and Yakuza Papers great. Enter Monster Party. The latest from burgeoning lo-fi genre writer/director Chris von Hoffmann (Drifter), takes a premise we've seen a few times before – … [Read more...] about MONSTER PARTY Review: Malibu Battle Royale
