China has set an August 19 release date for Universal / Illumination ’s Minions: The Rise Of Gru . This will be the first major tentpole from Hollywood to hit the market since Universal’s own Jurassic World Dominion which has grossed $157.4M there through Sunday and during an extended nine-week run; it is the biggest studio import of 2022. The Universal Pictures Weibo account today posted the date for Rise Of Gru writing in part, “Long time no see, troublemakers! Get on the scooter, we’re back!” The Maoyan ticketing platform and the Douban reviews site are also carrying the date. (Check out the full-size China poster below.) The market’s box office was severely impacted earlier this year amid Covid spikes that forced lockdowns and restrictions, with Shanghai and Beijing hit hard. Dominion ‘s dinosaurs helped shake things up, and lately, local Chinese movies have seen a resurgence, including holdover sci-fi comedy Moon Man which grossed RMB 2B ($296M) … [Read more...] about ‘Minions: The Rise Of Gru’ Secures China Release Date

A story idea from our London correspondent, circa 1975: Olivia Newton-John . You are going to have to face this subject sooner or later. But this is a story that definitely should not be question-and-answer style, since Olivia in person is quite boring. She has virtually nothing to say. One of my friends took her out once, and even then she had nothing to say. Olivia could understand. “I feel it must be strange for you interviewing me,” she said between shows at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas, “because I must be so alien to the paper. When I found out I was doing the interview, I thought, ‘Why the hell would. They want to talk to me ?’ I’m so out of everything the magazine seems to represent.” Lee Kramer, Olivia’s manager and longtime lover, had okayed the interview, but not before making a request that Rolling Stone be gentle with her. “She’s keen to sit down with any members of the press,” he said in our first telephone conversation. “But sometimes they come to take … [Read more...] about Olivia Newton-John Battles Back
Oscar-nominated, Cannes Palme d’Or winning Danish director Lars von Trier has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Trier’s long-time producer Louise Vesth at Zentropa Entertainment put out a statement on Monday announcing the diagnosis with the director’s blessing. “In agreement with Lars von Trier, we want to inform you that Lars was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease just before the summer holidays,” read the statement. She said Trier would continue to work on his upcoming series The Kingdom Exodus , the third and final instalment of his rebooted 1990s cult supernatural TV show The Kingdom which is due to world premiere at Venice at the end of August. “In order to avoid any speculation about his health leading up to the premiere, Zentropa has sent out this short statement to the Danish press,” continued her statement. “Lars is in good spirits and is being treated for his symptoms and the work to complete The Kingdom Exodus continues as planned.” … [Read more...] about Lars Von Trier Diagnosed With Parkinson’s Disease, Work On ‘The Kingdom Exodus’ Continues
In a move that comes as about as much as a surprise as James Bond liking his martini shaken not stirred, Universal today responded to the multi-claim Section 6 lawsuit from MGM and Bond producer Danjaq with a request that the federal court throw out the “threadbare allegations about hypothetical future infringement in works yet to be produced.” In fact, Universal accuses MGM and Danjaq of using the possibility of their Aaron Berg -written WWI-themed pic about the formation of the UK’s MI6 as a pretense for larger aims. “In an effort to claim an unfounded monopoly on the British spy genre, and to scare away Universal and any other would-be competitors to James Bond , Plaintiffs rushed to file this needless action,” notes today’s filing ( read it here ). Berg himself has also filed a heavily redacted motion for dismissal (read it here ) for his “undeniably original creative work.” This latest move from entertainment legal mastermind Bert Fields and … [Read more...] about Universal Wants “Needless” Bond Copyright Suit From MGM & 007 Producer Tossed
The same day the case over who owns sequel rights to Dungeons & Dragons wrapped, the case over the alleged “ James Bond knockoff” received the go-ahead to continue. In a sealed order, a federal judge is denying the motion by Universal to toss the multi-claim copyright infringement Section 6 lawsuit from MGM and Bond producer Danjaq . The order, from Judge James Otero, was dated September 23 but filed on Wednesday. A July 28 hearing on the matter was vacated later that month by the court, and Otero made his decision based on the materials of the case so far. In their late May motion to dismiss the action, the Comcast-owned studio said MGM and Danjaq’s case was based on “threadbare allegations about hypothetical future infringement in works yet to be produced.” Otero obviously disagreed. We’ll know why when his order is unsealed. MGM and Danjaq’s initial April 3 complaint cited what they say are the remarkable similarities between their man with a … [Read more...] about Universal Loses Bid To Toss James Bond Copyright Suit From MGM & 007 Producer
Kanye West is being weird again. In the aftermath of Kim Kardashian’s split from Pete Davidson , the rapper has regressed back to the same social media bullying he enacted when the pair first started dating. This time, West took to Instagram to share a photoshopped New York Times front page that reads: “Skete Davidson Dead at 28.” An optimistic take on the morbid headline would be that with Skete Davidson dead and gone, West’s relentless mocking of Pete Davidson could finally come to an end. But the small print underneath the bold text doesn’t suggest that any kind of a friendship awaits on the horizon for West and Davidson — or their shared link Kid Cudi. “Kid Cudi meant to play funeral but fearful of bottle throwers,” the subscript reads, mocking the artist’s recent departure from Rolling Loud mid-set. After West pulled out of a headlining slot at the last minute, Cudi was tapped to perform at the festival, only to be taunted and harassed by audience members who had hoped to … [Read more...] about Kanye West Declares ‘Skete Davidson Dead’ After Comedian’s Split from Kim Kardashian, Mocks Kid Cudi Rolling Loud Incident
Actor Naga Chaitanya, who is currently promoting his maiden Bollywood film Laal Singh Chaddha starring Aamir Khan, an official remake of Tom Hank's Forrest Gump, is one busy actor of late, in Tollywood. With several of his films not performing up to the mark, he is making sure to pick up work that suits his personality and keep himself occupied back-to-back. The actor was last seen in director Vikram K Kumar's Thank You , which remained a disaster at the box office. The latest buzz has it that the young actor has finally okayed the script narrated by director Parasuram Petla, who was supposed to do a film with Chaitanya before he proceeded with Mahesh Babu's Sarkaru Vaari Paata . After the miserable response the film garnered, Naga Chaitanya made Parasuram come up with a fresh and tweaked script that could work at the box office. Adding to the fact that his film Thank You , too, tanked at the box office, the duo is ensuring that they leave no stone … [Read more...] about Is It Rashmika Mandanna For Naga Chaitanya In His Next Film Adhe Nuvvu Adhe Nenu With Parasuram?
California rock outfit Avenged Sevenfold have been sued by their label, Warner Bros. Records, after attempting to break their as-yet-unfulfilled contract by citing California’s “seven-year rule,” Billboard reports. Avenged Sevenfold have released four out of the five albums mandated by their deal, which was signed in 2004. Since then, according to a statement by the band’s lawyer, Howard E. King, the label has undergone “multiple regime changes that led to dramatic turnover at every level of the company, to the point where no one on the current A&R staff has even a nodding relationship with the band.” The “seven-year rule” the band has invoked is a section of the California labor code that stipulates a court cannot enforce a personal service contract after seven calendar years from when the deal began. But Warner Bros., in their breach-of-contract suit, dismissed Avenged Sevenfold’s invocation of the rule as unlawful and have demanded a trial in order to rule it … [Read more...] about Avenged Sevenfold Sued After Trying to Split From Warner Bros
When Eric Clapton first heard the Band , he knew he was done with Cream. “I’m in the wrong place with the wrong people doing the wrong thing,” the guitarist later recalled thinking, and he wasn’t the only one left stunned by the group’s laid-back revolution. Synthesizing R&B, country, blues and early rock with chops seasoned by years on the road with Ronnie Hawkins and Bob Dylan , Canadians Robbie Robertson , Richard Manuel, Rick Danko and Garth Hudson , along with their Arkansas-born drummer-singer Levon Helm — once collectively known as the Hawks, and, later on, the Crackers — made everything old-timey, rural and ramshackle seem profoundly cool. For the next eight years, they would craft some of rock’s earthiest, grooviest and most yearning sounds. Here’s our comprehensive guide to their legacy on record, from Big Pink to The Basement Tapes and beyond. Must Have Music From Big Pink (1968) “We were rebelling against the rebellion,” Robbie … [Read more...] about The Band’s Essential Albums
