EXCLUSIVE : He’ll be back! James Cameron , who regains certain rights to his prized creation The Terminator in 2019, is godfathering a new iteration of the film that might finally get it right in drawing a close in the battle between humans and Skynet. Sources said that Cameron, whose copyright reversion happens 35 years after the release of the 1984 classic, is in early talks with Deadpool director and VFX wiz Tim Miller to direct a reboot and conclusion of one of cinema’s great science fiction tales. David Ellison , whose Skydance co-financed Terminator Genisys, is bankrolling an exploratory effort that includes engaging some top-flight science fiction authors to find the movie creatively. Ellison still holds many Terminator rights, after his 2013 acquisition from sister and Annapurna principal Megan Ellison. She bought them in 2011 at Cannes for $20 million. This is the latest development in an ongoing saga. Indeed, The Terminator might have endured … [Read more...] about He’s Back!

What Are the JUNO Awards? The JUNO Awards recognize Canada’s best and brightest recording artists across a number of categories.

Unlike the Grammys, there is also a top JUNO award for “Artist of the Year,” along with a fan-voted “Fan Choice” award. Launched in 1970 as the “Gold Leaf Awards,” the JUNOs were later renamed to honor Pierre Juneau, the first chairperson of the … [Read more...] about 2022 JUNO Awards Live Stream: Watch Shawn Mendes, Avril Lavigne at ‘Canada’s Grammys’
The downfall of actor Armie Hammer — as well as that of the Hammer family — will be the focus of an upcoming special coming to Discovery+ . The tentatively titled House of Hammer will examine the “ deeply troubling accusations leveled against Oscar-nominated actor and the Hammer family’s dark, twisted legacy,” a five-generation dynasty that exhibited “all the devastating consequences of privilege gone wild,” Variety reports . The special, announced Wednesday as part of Discovery+ and the ID channel’s upcoming slate of true-crime programming, will also feature interviews with unspecified Hammer family members and the actor’s alleged victims. In March 2021, a woman under the alias “Effie” accused the actor of “violently” raping and assaulting her. Hammer, through his lawyer, denied the “vicious and spurious” allegations, as well as the other accusations that appeared on social media in unverified text messages that detailed lurid sexual fantasies, … [Read more...] about Armie Hammer Sexual Assault Allegations Focus of Upcoming TV Special
From the time he stepped in as chairman of Sony ’s Motion Picture Group in 2015, Tom Rothman has heard the rumors that Sony would eventually sell because it didn’t have a streaming service or the scale to compete with its behemoth rivals. Universal, Warner Bros., Disney and Paramount battle it out with him at the box office, but Rothman’s studio is the only one that hasn’t spent a fortune building a streaming arm that factors into the decisions he makes. Still, Rothman is bullish on his studio’s chances, even before Netflix reports a 200,000-subscriber loss, prompting its stock to drop 35 percent and costing it $50 billion of its market cap. DEADLINE: You’re a Disruptor by being the only major studio head without the cushion of streaming service subscriptions, and you’re making it work. You’re a throwback to a model you used for decades at Fox, a studio that no longer exists. TOM ROTHMAN : So, I’m the Last of the Mohicans? DEADLINE: Why have other … [Read more...] about Sony Chairman Tom Rothman Paddles Upstream To Keep Focus On Traditional Cinema — Deadline Disruptors
T he way I see it, and I’ve got the conch, the best movies of the last 100 years were made by mavericks who busted rules to follow their obsessions. We’re talking about a century of cinema, but it’s still rock & roll to me. I had certain criteria: Each movie had to embody that rock spirit of artful defiance. Each director had to be limited to only one movie – otherwise you could just list the collected works of Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, John Ford, Billy Wilder and Martin Scorsese and end it. Anything dutiful I tossed. Don’t look for the biggest cash cow ( Titanic ), the winner of the most Oscars ( Ben-Hur ) or film -school staples like Battleship Potemkin . The 100 maverick movies on this list have one more thing in common: They’re alive. 1. The Godfather Trilogy (1972, 1974, 1990, Francis Ford Coppola): The flawed Part III barely slides in on goodwill. No matter. This is entertainment raised to the level of art: an offer you can’t refuse. Coppola gives … [Read more...] about 100 Years, 100 Maverick Movies
It’s a bizarre world, this (almost, more-or-less, maybe) post- Covid movie landscape. Pieces are falling into place: Production starts have been up for a year, box-office revenue continues to climb, though it’s still a long reach to pre-Covid highs. But so much is so different, and I don’t mean just the obvious shift toward streaming . Look closely at the Motion Picture Association ’s so-called “Theme Report” from two months ago—a statistical survey of the film business, compiled annually—and you can see the outlines of an industry that was leveled by disaster, and is growing back in ways that veteran observers might find unsettling, if not downright grotesque. Strangest for me is a near-obliteration of the older audience, a trend that finally be easing with the relative success of Downton Abbey: A New Era . Reasons for the wipe-out are clear enough: Those age 60 and above were deemed more vulnerable to coronavirus, so they abandoned theaters when the … [Read more...] about From Deep In The MPA’s ‘Theme Report,’ Markers Of A Weird New Movie World
At an empty beach bar in Corozal, a shaggy town of a few thousand people just minutes from where northern Belize meets Mexico’s share of the Yucatan Peninsula, waves crash into a jagged, rocky breakwater. It’s 9 p.m., the kitchenis about to close, and the only people left are some young, very loud, and very sober American missionaries. Another languid Caribbean day is winding down, but my dinner companion, Moses Michael Levi “ Shyne ” Barrow, has no desire to linger over a meal and conversation. He’s shoveling in his fried fish, rice, and beans faster than an escaped hostage, and brushing off my questions about his remarkable life — from Brooklyn-raised rapper to convicted felon to Orthodox Jewish convert to prominent politician here in the country of his birth — with blunt rejoinders. “I want you to be more specific, rather than just sitting here having a therapy session,” he grumbles, raising his hand to make a drink order. Folks come to Corozal to fish, visit … [Read more...] about Guns, Rhymes, God, and Politics: Shyne’s Epic Fall and Rise
