Matthew Vaughn Blames ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ for Delay of His ‘Flash Gordon’ Remake

31 minutes ago

Matthew Vaughn signed on to direct the “Flash Gordon” remake in 2015 and there’s kind of been radio silence since — now, the “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” director says he’s still developing the project but a recent blockbuster threw a monkey wrench into his idea. “Yeah, we’ve been working on it,” he told Collider. “For me, the only problem with ‘Flash Gordon’ is ‘Guardians ’ kind of stole what I would have liked to have done with it.” The filmmaker, whose credits include 2010’s “Kick-Ass” and 2011’s “X-Men: First Class,” said that it’s taking him a bit longer than he. »

‘Friend Request’ Review: Delete Your Account

32 minutes ago

The silly but effective “Unfriended,” that 2014 thriller about a vengeful ghost killing off her high-school tormentors one by one in a Skype chat room, was no classic, but it’s looking more like one when compared to “Friend Request,” an utterly idiotic movie that uses social media as a conduit for witchcraft and mayhem. If nothing else, this supposed horror movie ranks among the most unintentionally funny films of recent vintage, starting with the periodic on-screen appearance of the heroine’s Facebook friend count as it spirals downward, which is presented as equivalent to the tragedy of a string of murders. »

Watch Pennywise’s Creepy A-ha Moment Dancing to ‘Take on Me’ and Other Classic Songs (Video)

1 hour ago

Remember Pennywise’s creepy dancing scene down in the sewers from “It?” Well, imagine that scene playing to your favorite songs like A-ha’s 1984 hit “Take on Me” andOutKast’s “Hey Ya!” That’s exactly what some genius did on Twitter — making Pennywise dance to a variety of different songs, including “Everytime We Touch,” “The Macarena,” “Shake it Off,” “I’m Blue” and “Barbie Girl.” The social media guru even matched “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” … just slowed down a tiny bit. In Andy Muschietti’s film adaptation — which just became the highest grossing horror movie ever — Pennywise (Bill Skarsgard) performs a. »

‘The Tiger Hunter’ Review: Danny Pudi’s Got Big Dreams as a 1979 Immigrant

1 hour ago

In the most piercing scene of “The Tiger Hunter,” a half-dozen Indian immigrants who share a Chicago apartment explain how each makes a living. Like protagonist Sami (Danny Pudi, “Community”), nearly all of those men was trained as an engineer. But in America, one drives a cab. Another walks dogs. A third washes dishes. Sami’s introduction to his new roommates is played for laughs. His new friend, Babu (an agreeably hammy Rizwan Manji, “Schitt’s Creek”), claims to work as a “wallet” (he means “valet”) — a joke that plays on some Indian Americans’ muddle between the letters V and. »

Ratings: ‘The Orville’ Comes Back Down to Earth in Regular Time Slot Premiere

1 hour ago

Fox’s “The Orville” settled into its regular time slot on Thursday, which unfortunately does not contain the NFL boost Seth MacFarlane has seen on his two previous Sunday shots. The drama did manage to build off its “Gotham” season premiere lead-in, at least — and Fox finished first in primetime’s key 18-49 ratings demographic last night. CBS was No. 1 in total viewers. Of course, there were a ton of reruns across NBC, CBS and ABC — broadcast networks that also air an hour more than Fox does, 10 p.m. tends to hurt their averages.

1 hour ago

Jodie Sweetin has been known as Stephanie Tanner from “Full House” pretty much her whole life — but the actress herself says she’s never seen an entire episode of the iconic show. “I have to be honest. I don’t know that I’ve ever watched an entire episode of ‘Full House.’ Not sat down for an entire episode,” she said at the PaleyFest Fall TV Preview in Beverly Hills, California, on Thursday night, according to Entertainment Weekly. “Now, I don’t have a TV,” she explained. “I have like Netflix and HBO Go, but I don’t have regular TV, »

‘Veep’ Showrunner Regrets ‘Not Booing and Walking Out’ on Sean Spicer’s Emmys Gag

1 hour ago

Some people found Sean Spicer’s self-deprecating skit at the Emmys to be funny. “Veep” showrunner David Mandel was not one of them. “I’m mad at myself for not booing and walking out,” he told EW. “I found it disgusting. Being in a comedy bit does not make him innocent of his crimes … He was up there making light of lies he told the American people.” Mandel’s star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who on Sunday won her record sixth Emmy award (in six tries) for playing Selina Meyer, saw it the same way. “I don’t think it’s cute, »

Colbert, Corden Do the Exact Same Lawrence O’Donnell Meltdown Gag (Videos)

2 hours ago

Sometimes there are only so many ways to tackle a joke. Comedians often chalk up indistinguishable punchlines to “parallel thinking.” James Corden and his “Late Late Show” lead-in Stephen Colbert were victims of that last night, when both CBS late-night hosts performed the exact same gag in mockery of MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell’s recent meltdown. To be fair, both sketches were funny (though perhaps not as hilarious as the insane original) and the two shows tape on different coasts. This particular self-deprecation entry was also the obvious angle. Also Read: Lawrence O'Donnell Apologizes for On-Camera Meltdown (Video) In other words, »

‘Morning Joe': Mika Thumps Trump’s North Korea Tweets: ‘You Are a 70-Year-Old Man – Stop’ (Video)

3 hours ago

Just when Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzenzski thought they’ve heard it all from Donald Trump, the President goes and pulls a stunt like this. In case you live in a bunker — which sounds like a good idea right about now — Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un have been engaged in a nasty war of words that is starting to look like it could result in a war of war. In their latest battle-rap round about possible actual battle, Kim described Trump as a “frightened dog” and a “dotard.” He promised to “tame” Trump “with fire.” Also Read: Trump Lashes. »

Netflix Kids’ Show Producer Blames Rogue Artist for Penis Drawing: ‘Very Bad Joke’

3 hours ago

The production company for the animated Netflix series “Maya the Bee” has blamed one rogue artist for inserting a penis drawing on a background log in Season 1, Episode 35, which was yanked off the streaming service earlier this week. It was a “very bad joke,” according to a statement released Friday by Studio 100, which also called the background illustration “unacceptable.” “Legal action has already been started,” apologetic producers continued. “At the same time the company is taking all suitable technical measures to remedy the situation.” Also Read: Netflix Yanks Kids' Cartoon Episode With Penis Drawing in Background (Photo) Sounds like producers. »

‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Review: Spy Sequel Provides Bugger All in the Way of Fun

4 hours ago

It took the Bond series 15 years and 10 movies to get to the ridiculed “Moonraker.” The laddish spy franchise “Kingsman: The Secret Service” series, based on Mark Millar’s comic book, has done it in one leap with the bloated, inexplicably un-entertaining follow-up “Kingsman: The Golden Circle.” Given that the movie struggles to justify its existence from scene to scene, and so ill-uses a VIP table’s worth of stars/actors — Elton John, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum and Jeff Bridges — the better comparison might be to “Cannonball Run II.” At least “Moonraker” had Roger Moore’s bespoke suavity as. »

President Trump stepped up his attacks on Kim Jong-un on Friday, slamming the North Korean leader with nuclear ambitions as “obviously a madman who doesn’t mind starving or killing his people.” In a series of morning tweets that also included attacks on Sen. Rand Paul and the mainstream media, the president vowed that Kim “will be tested like never before!” The tweet comes just one day after North Korea issued a formal statement attributed to Kim calling Trump “the mentally deranged U.S. dotard” following Trump’s speech before the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday labeling Kim as “Rocket Man” and threatening to. »

The battle of words between Jimmy Kimmel and Sen. Bill Cassidy over health care continued on Thursday, with the ABC late-night host looking back on “an unusual week.” “If you’ve been watching the show over the past few days, I have found myself in the middle of a battle over American health care,” Kimmel began his monologue. “The reason I had on my show in the first place was because he started telling people that any plan he supports would have to pass what he called ‘The Jimmy Kimmel Test,'” Kimmel said, before reiterating his reasons for protesting the Cassidy-Graham bill. »

‘Mudbound’ Director Dee Rees Asks What It Means to Be a Citizen (Video)

15 hours ago

Dee Rees’s film “Mudbound,” which is giving Netflix a strong push into this year’s Oscar race, follows two men who face racism and strained relationships with their families upon returning home to Mississippi after World War II. Rees was drawn to the source material because of the dual perspective between black and white families and how this singular event bonds them. “Thematically I was interested in exploring themes about how you can never come home, themes about what it means to be a citizen, and the underlying, simmering violence that’s always threatening to come in,” Rees told TheWrap’s Sharon Waxman. »
