In one of the few showbusiness divorces to be of real interest to readers of the world’s business pages and no doubt even more to his children, Rupert Murdoch has finalised the financial details of his split from Jerry Hall . In a joint statement issued by the former couple, Murdoch and Hall announced that legal proceedings had been aborted, and financial arrangements settled out of court. Following the end of their six-year marriage – Murdoch’s fourth – Hall is expected to receive a multi-million-pound settlement, as well as the couple’s £11m Oxfordshire mansion, Holmwood House. She is also expected to receive a villa in the south of France. This will not leave Murdoch empty handed. The 91-year-old media mogul will retain possession of his New York penthouse apartment, as well as his house in London’s Mayfair and the jewel in his property crown, his Moraga Estate vineyard in Bel-Air. The couple surprised media observers with news of their split, after Murdoch’s … [Read more...] about Don’t Worry, Rupert Murdoch Remains Rich Despite Finalising Financial Details Of Jerry Hall Divorce
Fox News hosts have spent the past few days wildly and irresponsibly speculating that the FBI planted evidence when investigators searched Donald Trump ’s Mar-a-Lago compound, proving that the network is still very much a propaganda machine for the former president. Fox Corporation’s CEO Lachlan Murdoch , however, has privately bashed the former president, according to a report from CNN’s Reliable Sources. Oliver Darcy reports sources have told him that Lachlan Murdoch, son of media scion Rupert Murdoch , has “freely criticized” Trump and does not like the way he acts. Lachlan has also reportedly said that if Trump runs in 2024 it would be bad for America. While the elder Murdoch’s negative feelings about Trump have been previously reported, his son’s thoughts on the former president were not widely known. Although the executive may not be a fan of Trump, the report says, Murdoch knows that the channel’s viewers would balk if the network were to pivot against him, which … [Read more...] about Fox Corp.

A review of this week’s Better Call Saul , “Waterworks,” coming up just as soon as I call this a fish taco, legally… “This guy? Any good?” —Jesse In a different world, Kim Wexler and Jesse Pinkman should have never met. She was a high-powered civil attorney working for two of Albuquerque’s most prestigious firms; he was Cap’n Cook. In this one, they are linked not only by the fact that she once defended Jesse’s friend Combo(*) in juvenile court, but by their associations with Saul Goodman — associations that eventually destroyed any semblance of the life they had once planned for themselves(**). (*) RIP, Combo. Gone and often forgotten among Jesse’s crew because he was killed so early in the series, while Badger and Skinny Pete made it to the end and beyond. (**) Yes, Walter White is ultimately far more to blame for Jesse’s travails. But without Saul pushing them to expand the operation, and eventually introducing them to Gus Fring, it is not hard to envision a … [Read more...] about ‘Better Call Saul’ Recap: Better Call Kim
The 47th Toronto Film Festival on Tuesday selected the Mary Harron-directed Dalíland as its closing-night movie. The pic stars Ben Kingsley as the older Salvador Dalí and Ezra Miller as the younger Dalí. However, the TIFF press release left Miller’s name off the cast credits. It’s been public knowledge that Miller is in the film. The Flash star this week was charged with felony burglary in Vermont in addition to several other run-ins with the law this year. Deadline learned this morning that Miller has not been cut out of Dalíland . In a 2021 Cannes Market interview with Deadline , Harron told us: “We started looking at Dalí in the 1970s, the older Dalí, with flashbacks to the younger Dalí, which are rendered like an old movie. That format really excited me. Ezra had like three days between finishing Fantastic Beasts and starting The Flash, and insisted on coming and doing our film. The story is all played out through this kind of Nick Carraway figure … [Read more...] about Toronto Film Festival Closing-Night Film Is ‘Dalíland’: Where Is Ezra Miller?
