            ‘RBG’ Filmmakers Cook Up Next Project: A Julia Child Documentary (Exclusive)

            ‘RBG’ Filmmakers Cook Up Next Project: A Julia Child Documentary (Exclusive)
            After charting Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s rise to the top of the legal world, the filmmaking team behind “RBG” is reuniting to tell the story of a different kind of trailblazer: Julia Child, the television chef and cookbook author who taught America how to eat.

            Co-directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen will examine Child’s unconventional life, one that saw her seize the spotlight with the 1961 publication of her best-seller “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” when she was nearly 50 years old. She then brought her love of fine food to the masses with WGBH television program “The French Chef,” which was syndicated nationally by PBS, and later, in appearances on “Good Morning America.”

            “She was larger than life, literally,” West told Variety days before flying to France to conduct interviews for the film. “She was 6’2” or 6’3” and kind of clunky in a way, but also totally self-confident and funny and authentic,

            Robert Pattinson Will Compete as Lead Actor in ‘The Lighthouse’ (Exclusive)

            Robert Pattinson Will Compete as Lead Actor in ‘The Lighthouse’ (Exclusive)
            Robert Pattinson will compete in the lead actor category for “The Lighthouse,” Variety has learned exclusively. A24 will submit Pattinson in the lead actor category, with co-star Willem Dafoe in the supporting actor field.

            The Lighthouse,” which opens Oct. 18, has been earning praise on the festival circuit since premiering at Cannes in May, where writer-director Robert Eggers won an International Federation of Film Critics (Fipresci) Prize. Pattinson and Dafoe play two lighthouse keepers isolated on a small island who begin to grapple with their sanity.

            If Dafoe were to be nominated, it would be his third consecutive nod after last year’s “At Eternity’s Gate” and 2017’s “The Florida Project.” He was also previously nominated for “Platoon” and “Shadow of the Vampire.”

            While the film is very much a two-hander, Pattinson has more screen time and his character serves as the audience’s point of view. Though he has

            ‘Tell Me Who I Am’ Trailer: Shocking Family Secrets Unfold in Latest Wild Netflix Documentary
            Alex Lewis was just a teenager when he endured a terrible motorcycle accident that put him in a coma and wiped his memory in the process. When he finally awoke, the young Brit knew only one thing: his twin brother’s name. He didn’t even know his own name, but he recognized his beloved sibling Marcus, and that was enough to help guide him back to apparent normalcy. Aided by his loving brother and an attentive mother, Alex was able to reconstruct his life, from learning the basics like how to brush his teeth or ride a bike, to boning up on a seemingly happy family history, as explained by Marcus.

            It wasn’t true. At least, it wasn’t true to Marcus, who strove to build a history for his brother that neatly cut away the bad stuff and allowed him the kind of happiness and freedom that Marcus,

            Will Smith Wishes He Could Go Back & Tell His “A–Hole” Self To Say Yes To ‘The Matrix’ Instead Of ‘Wild Wild West’

            Will Smith has had a pretty incredible career, by any metric. He’s received critical acclaim for a variety of films. He’s also become synonymous with the big-budget blockbusters, thanks to iconic summer films like “Independence Day” and “Men in Black.” But even with all that amazing history, there’s still one regret that Smith carries with him to this day — “The Matrix.”

            Speaking to a Fox Chicago reporter on the red carpet for his latest action film “Gemini Man,” Smith was asked what he’d say to a younger version of himself if he had the chance.

            ‘Search Party’ Is Coming Back For 2 New Seasons On HBO Max, Proving There Is Still Good Left In The World

            With the absolute barrage of streaming projects coming to the multitude of platforms over the next couple of years, it’s truly impossible for us to keep up. However, there are times, even when it’s not the most earth-shattering news featuring the industry’s biggest names, that we have to make a stand and make sure our readers know something important. And that time is now, with the recent announcement that “Search Party” is coming back, but on a different network/platform.

            Women Directors Are Finally Getting Higher Profile Movies and Storming the Box Office Top 100

            Every year for the past 10 years, Dr. Stacy L. Smith and USC’s Annenberg Inclusion Initiative has tracked representation in front of and behind the camera, resulting in the publication of a number of essential reports about the state of the industry. In recent years — and despite an uptick in discussion regarding the need for more diversity and inclusion in the entertainment industry — Smith’s studies have often found dismal results. Earlier this year, Smith’s signature “Inclusion in the Director’s Chair” report found that of the 112 directors behind the 100 top-grossing movies of 2018, only 3.6 percent were women. Still worse: that percentage was actually down from the year before, when 7.3 percent of the top films were helmed by women.

            Now, however, Smith is prepared to offer some good, early news in a new interview with Variety about the changing face of Hollywood’s directing pool. While the year is far from over,

            Robert Downey, Jr. Doesn’t Want An Oscar For ‘Endgame’ & Says “It Makes No Sense” To Say Marvel Films Aren’t Cinema

            Recently, it was revealed that Disney has started awards campaigning for several of its films, including the world-dominating superhero blockbuster “Avengers: Endgame.” Of course, when you have the box office champion, you enter the film in the Best Picture category (as “Avatar” did a decade ago). There’s also a slew of technical categories such as Sound and VFX that ‘Endgame’ likely has a decent shot at winning.

            ‘Atlantics’ Trailer: Mati Diop’s Cannes Award-Winning Drama Finally Arrives On Netflix In November

            What is there to say about “Atlantics” that hasn’t been said before? The new film from Mati Diop has received nothing but rave reviews since it’s world premiere at Cannes and has gone on to wow audiences at various other festival screenings this year. And it was so well-received that the drama was snatched up by Netflix and given a prime fall streaming/theatrical release.

            For those that aren’t aware of the film, “Atlantics” tells the story of a young woman that finds herself in the middle of a very unique love triangle.

            ‘End of the F***ing World’ Sets Season 2 Premiere by Teasing Big Spoiler About James’ Fate

            Did Netflix just give away its biggest spoiler when it comes to “The End of the F***ing World” Season 2? The streaming giant has debuted the first poster for the upcoming new season of its breakout hit (officially titled “The End of the F***ing World 2”), and it includes Jessica Barden’s Alyssa sitting at a dinner table across from an urn. The urn would appear to be the remains of Alex Lawther’s James, although the show’s first season finale never confirmed the character had died.

            “The End of the F***ing World” debuted on Netflix in January 2018 and quickly became a word-of-mouth hit thanks to its deadpan black comedy and its two breakout performances from leading stars Lawther and Barden. Lawther’s James is a self-proclaimed psychopath who agrees to help Barden’s foul-mouthed Alyssa run away with the intention of eventually killing her. The two’s

            ‘Mickey And The Bear’ Trailer: Camila Morrone & James Badge Dale Star In This Dark Family Drama

            Selflessness is one of the most admirable traits to have, sacrificing personal needs and desires for those of others. It is a virtue second-nature to some, while others just don’t have the time and/or patience to put it into practice. What’s even more noble is that many selfless individuals seek neither reward nor compensation for the services and aid they provide and put their lives on perpetual hold. But what happens when someone takes advantage of this kind of goodwill?

            Review: The First Desire—Pedro Almodóvar’s “Pain and Glory”

            • MUBI
            Pedro Almodóvar’s is a cinema of misfits, for misfits. It’s a generous, cacophonous and brightly-colored universe that’s sought—over the course of a glorious, four-decade-plus career—to make a place for everyone, including and especially those relegated to society’s margins. His humanist and sensitive eye has zeroed in on women’s experience as well as those of homosexuals, drag queens and transgender people—reckoning with their plight (in the case of the latter in particular) long before they found a place in mainstream debate. It is also a cinema steeped in auto-fiction, crisscrossing between truth an artifice, where melodramas are laced with rich autobiographical details—his 2004 masterwork Bad Education remains possibly the most notable case in point. But even as they draw from real life fodder, Almodóvar’s films do not register as confessionals, and labelling them so would be to miss the point. Their beauty

            The Films of Israeli Poet and Enfant Terrible David Avidan

            • MUBI
            SplitThe Israel Film Archive’s curated program at the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen this year contained the first-ever screenings outside of Israel of David Avidan’s ribald, provocative, heretical, language-fed and machine-made cinema-poems. One of the country’s most avant-garde poets in the 1960s, in a time when Israel was still a cultural backwater struggling to define itself, Avidan had the courage to go against the grain of Israeli poetry to define himself as a transmedia artist, a futurist, and internationalist poet. The perspective of Avidan’s films is simple: that of revolt. In this his cinema most closely resembles that of Jean-Luc Godard’s more cantankerous films—whatever anyone could postulate, Avidan’s position could always be summarized as “no.” This stance of negation that links Avidan and Godard in their fundaments also emerges from the same source: it is language which nourishes both of their cinematic ideas.

            After a brief brush with cancellation, “The Expanse” is back with a trailer for its upcoming fourth season. Earlier this year, the sci-fi show, previously on Syfy, made headlines when it was canceled after its third season, to the surprise of many. “The Expanse” earned a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes for its recent third season, giving it a 90% rating for the series overall. Fans took to social media and #SaveTheExpanse quickly started to trend on Twitter.

            Bong Joon Ho Duped Harvey Weinstein With a Hilarious Lie to Save ‘Snowpiercer’ Scene

            Bong Joon Ho Duped Harvey Weinstein With a Hilarious Lie to Save ‘Snowpiercer’ Scene
            As Bong Joon Ho sets out on the U.S. press tour for his Palme d’Or winner “Parasite,” he’s once again being asked to relive the battle with Harvey Weinstein over the final cut of his science-fiction action movie “Snowpiercer.” Bong and Weinstein’s clash is an infamous story for fans of the South Korean master. After The Weinstein Company bought the distribution rights to “Snowpiercer” in 2012, Harvey was adamant about cutting 25 minutes from Bong’s cut. Harvey wanted “more Chris Evans,” as Bong tells Vulture writer E. Alex Jung in a lengthy new profile.

            “It was a doomed encounter,” Bong said. “I’m someone who until that point had only ever released the ‘director’s cut’ of my films. I’ve never done an edit I didn’t want to do. Weinstein’s nickname is ‘Harvey Scissorhands,’ and he took such pride in his edit of the film.

            ‘Atlantics’ Trailer: Netflix’s Oscar-Contending Ghost Love Story Is Bewitching — Exclusive

            ‘Atlantics’ Trailer: Netflix’s Oscar-Contending Ghost Love Story Is Bewitching — Exclusive
            The first trailer for French-Senegalese filmmaker Mati Diop’s feature directorial debut, “Atlantics,” offers a bewitching look at the filmmaker’s already-lauded “ghost love story.” “Atlantics” premiered at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, where it was awarded the Grand Prix. The film’s Cannes premiere earned Diop a spot in the history books: She became the first woman of African descent with a film screening in the 72-year-old festival’s Competition section, and has proven to be one of the biggest breakouts this year.

            Netflix acquired “Atlantics” at the festival, representing the streaming giant’s ongoing push into the African continent — a still relatively untapped source of talent and content. Last week, the film was selected by Senegal as the country’s submission for Best International Feature Film Oscar consideration.

            With “Atlantics,” Diop has crafted a fantastical blend of romance, socio-political commentary, and surreal dreamscape all in one, resulting in what is,

            ‘Tell Me Who I Am’ Trailer: Netflix Doc Tells The Startling Story Of Betrayal Between Twin Brothers

            If you have a twin sibling, the bond between you and that person is supposed to be legendary. There are stories of twins having almost a psychic connection that can’t be explained by simple science. And the story of the upcoming Netflix documentary “Tell Me Who I Am” begins with that idea, but quickly spirals into a tale of betrayal.

            As seen in the trailer, “Tell Me Who I Am” features the story of two twin brothers that reconnect after one of them is involved in a terrible accident that leaves him with complete amnesia.

            Robert Downey Jr. Accepts Martin Scorsese’s Marvel Insult, Even If It ‘Makes No Sense’

            Robert Downey Jr. Accepts Martin Scorsese’s Marvel Insult, Even If It ‘Makes No Sense’
            Given Martin Scorsese’s controversial critique of Marvel movies last week, it was only a matter of time before Robert Downey Jr., the godfather of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, weighed in on the matter. The “Iron Man” actor was asked by Howard Stern to comment on Scorsese’s opinion that Marvel movies are more like theme parks than actual cinema. Downey Jr. welcomed Scorsese’s opinion, making it clear that he is well aware Marvel has become Hollywood’s most powerful force. As Downey Jr. put it for comic book fans, “It is this very large, multi-headed Hydra at this point.”

            Stern asked Downey Jr. point black if Marvel movies were “cinema,” to which the actor replied, “I mean it plays in theaters. I appreciate [Scorsese’s] opinion. I think it’s like anything where we need all of the different perspectives so we can come to center and move on.” Downey Jr.

            The Academy Will Allow Oscar Voters to Stream Almost All Awards Screeners

            The Academy Will Allow Oscar Voters to Stream Almost All Awards Screeners
            David Rubin isn’t going down the recent path of Academy presidents like John Bailey, who led the Board of Governors into hasty, ABC-friendly Oscar changes that alienated the burgeoning and diversifying membership of more than 9000 members. This seasoned casting director and Academy veteran, who successfully created a new Academy branch for casting directors, knows his way around Hollywood politics.

            I caught up with him at his first Telluride Film Festival just before the Terrence Malick fan ran off to see “A Hidden Life.” Rubin could serve three one-year terms as AMPAS president if he does well. After six years on the board and three as an officer, he’s learned how to play the Academy game. Here’s what he will and will not do.

            1. He wants everyone to see as many of the films as possible, even if it’s online.

            Robert Pattinson Will Compete for Lead Actor Oscar for His Role in ‘The Lighthouse’

            Robert Pattinson Will Compete for Lead Actor Oscar for His Role in ‘The Lighthouse’
            Robert Pattinson will enter the lead actor Oscar race for his role alongside Willem Dafoe in “The Lighthouse.” (Via Variety.) A24’s decision to submit Pattinson in the category means Dafoe will compete for best supporting actor.

            The mens’ performances in the film, which opens Oct. 18, have been lauded on the festival circuit, where writer-director Robert Eggers has taken home a handful of awards, including Cannes’ Fipresci Prize.

            It seemed like a tossup as to whether Dafoe, who plays a crotchety and possibly mad lighthouse keeper, or Pattinson as his protege, would enter the lead race. The film is claustrophobically centered around the two men, their shared bedroom, their drinking binges, and their work on a tiny island somewhere in the Atlantic.

            But it’s Pattinson who has a slight edge on Dafoe when it comes to screen time and the audience is given a clearer, more intimate look into his psyche and routine,

            Another Day, Another Netflix Mega-Deal: Analysts Weigh In On the Potential Payoff

            Another Day, Another Netflix Mega-Deal: Analysts Weigh In On the Potential Payoff
            Peter Morgan is the latest high-profile television creator to sign a big overall deal with Netflix, this one a multi-year deal valued at over $100 million that will encompass film and television, and result in two more seasons of “The Crown,” bringing the series total to six. (Season 3 of “The Crown” hits Netflix November 17 and work is already under way on Season 4.)

            Though they did not disclose terms, a Netflix spokesperson confirmed the Morgan deal in an email. What’s most unusual about Morgan’s deal, of course, is that it’s not unusual at all. (Deadline also noted that Netflix may be pursuing an overall deal with “Black Mirror” creator Charlie Brooker.)

            From JJ Abrams, Matt and Ross Duffer, and David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, to Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Ryan Murphy, and Shonda Rhimes, these deals — at price points ranging from $20 million to $500 million — have become commonplace across the increasingly crowded television industry.
