Release Date of “I, Tonya” Hints at Oscar Aspirations
The movie I, Tonya, made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier in the year. Viewers gave the movie stellar reviews largely based on the performances of Margot Robbie and Allison Janney. Based on a true life story (which Robbie was totally oblivious to, even after reading the script) of Tonya Harding. It is scheduled to open in theaters on December 8th after its rights were bought by Neon for a hefty price tag of $5 million. That is a considerable sum to pay for a biopic, especially about ice skating. The fact that Robbie, at age 27,

Denis Villeneuve Says ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Will Be His Director’s Cut
Upon its release in 1982, “Blade Runner” had so much studio interference, that its history has been plagued with ups and downs. Receiving mixed reviews, the film came and went upon release, but ended up receiving a cult following on home video, which had its director Ridley Scott amped up and screening his own versions to audiences around the country for the next few years. There have been several versions of “Blade Runner,” seven to be specific, but the ultimate version will always be “The Final Cut” which got rid of the narration, left us with an extra final brilliant shot, and fixed many of the plot holes that were present in the original.

‘The Princess Bride’ Turns 30: Rob Reiner, Robin Wright, Billy Crystal Dish About Making the Cult Classic
It’s no secret “The Princess Bride” was not a box office success when it opened in 1987. And it’s also no secret that thanks to home video, cable, DVD, and now Blu-ray, the charmingly funny fractured fairy tale directed by Rob Reiner and adapted by William Goldman from his 1973 novel, has become part of the cultural landscape.
Stars Chris Sarandon, Cary Elwes, and Wallace Shawn once did a Q&A after a screening for an audience of 5,000 people. Rabid fans approached the stars reciting their lines — especially Mandy Patinkin’s “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die,” and Shawn’s “Inconceivable.” Even Ted Cruz reenacted the hilarious scene featuring Billy Crystal as Miracle Max and Carol Kane as his wife Valerie during the 2016 presidential campaign.
But did you know the film once saved a woman’s life?
“Honestly, I’m not making this up,” said Reiner. »

James Franco Says 3 Season Run Planned For ‘The Deuce’
Sometimes half the battle between being a good and a great show is knowing when to end. There are countless examples of series that perhaps went one season too long, or by contrast, didn’t get the space they needed to tell the story they wanted. For HBO‘s “The Deuce,” however, it looks like creators David Simon and George Pelecanos already have a gameplan, and for those of you who you like your narratives lean and mean, this going to be some good news.

‘Gerald’s Game’ Review: Carla Gugino Shines in a Stunning Stephen King Adaptation
Stephen King may be best known for killer clowns, Dark Towers, and his other sprawling epics of good and evil, but there's a much more mundane type of menace you'll find stamped across the pages of all King's best works: toxic men. Corrupt men in power, bad husbands, and even worse fathers are threaded through King's narratives at large, and few of his stories delve into the tricky subject matter so deeply as Gerald's Game, a rich and thoughtful, if occasionally problematic, examination of abuse and the transformation from victim to survivor, all told through … »

Megyn Kelly Draws Criticism for Awkward Gay Joke About ‘Will and Grace’ Fan on Talk Show Debut — Watch
Former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly is off to a rocky start of her new morning talk show, “Megyn Kelly Today,” after making an off color remark to a “Will & Grace” superfan. During a segment with the “Will & Grace” cast, Kelly surprised audience member Russel Turner by asking him up the stage to meet Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally. Kelly asked him: “Is it true that you became a lawyer — and you became gay — because of Will?” Turner responded graciously with humor: “I look at Will Truman, I’m like, ‘He has it made’: lawyer, best apartment in New York City, and gay? Come on, trifecta.”
Before Turner left the stage, Kelly added: “I think the Will & Grace thing and the gay thing is going to work out great!”
