            ‘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.

            Busan: Oscar-winning Composer A.R. Rahman Sings ‘99 Songs’

            Busan: Oscar-winning Composer A.R. Rahman Sings ‘99 Songs’
            A.R. Rahman, Oscar-, BAFTA- and Grammy-winning composer of “Slumdog Millionaire”, will world premiere his debut as screenwriter and producer “99 Songs” at the Busan International Film Festival on Wednesday.

            The film, directed by Vishwesh Krishnamoorthy (TV’s “The Dewarists”), will play as part of the festival’s ‘Open Cinema’ strand. The screening will be preceded by a live piano performance by Rahman where he will bow themes from the film.

            “It’s like a fairy tale, where a guy has to write a 100 songs to win the girl, but it’s not that simple,” Rahman told Variety. The peripatetic composer spends a lot of time on planes. That coupled with his post-Oscars composing phase where Hollywood’s comparatively relaxed schedule as opposed to his frenetic pace of life at home in Chennai, India, gave him the time to conceive the idea of writing a film about music.

            Netflix and Mediaset Announce Details of Major Italian Production Agreement

            Netflix and Mediaset on Tuesday in Rome announced details of an alliance in Italy under which they will jointly produce seven Italian-language feature films, a move that marks the U.S. streaming giant’s biggest Italian content deal to date.

            Five of the films that Netflix will produce in tandem with Italy’s top private generalist broadcaster were announced. The are being made by prominent Italian indie producers such as Indigo Film (“The Great Beauty”) and Lucky Red, with which Netflix teamed up on last year’s Venice title “On My Skin.” All films are to be helmed by young up-and-coming directors.

            “We will be working with new professionals who up until now have not had the opportunity to tell their stories to the world,” said Netflix CEO Reed Hastings during a press conference in Rome’s national modern art museum.

            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,

            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).

            Robert Downey Jr. Appreciates Martin Scorsese’s ‘Different Perspective’ on Marvel Movies

            Robert Downey Jr. Appreciates Martin Scorsese’s ‘Different Perspective’ on Marvel Movies
            Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., is the latest Avenger to offer his perspective after Martin Scorsese said Marvel movies are “not cinema.”

            Scorsese’s comments gained traction after he compared the Marvel Cinematic Universe to “theme parks,” adding, “It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.”

            Downey Jr. told Howard Stern Monday on the radio personality’s SiriusXM show that he acknowledges Scorsese’s nuanced take.

            “I appreciate [Scorsese’s] opinion because I think it’s like anything, we need all of the different perspectives so we can come to center and move on,” Downey Jr. said.

            Stern probed Downey Jr., suggesting the actor was being “too nice” about Scorsese’s remark.

            “No, really,” Stern responded. “Were you insulted when he said it’s not cinema? That somehow Iron Man isn’t cinema? It is cinema to me.”

            Recently, solitary Oscar-winner Martin Scorsese made some controversial comments about the McU. Those comments boiled down to admitting that he doesn't see Marvel movies in the first place because he doesn't consider them cinema; he likens them to theme parks instead. He went on to say that Marvel movies and the like just weren't cinematic examples of humans trying to communicate with each other. For comparison, mavens from the traditional book publishing industry had a similar opinion …

            “Ms. Zellweger has always displayed a deep commitment and discipline in her performances which has always made me root for her and admire her deeply. In Judy, she adds a ferocity that solidifies her as one of the greatest actors of her time,” said Santa Barbara International Film Festival Executive Director, Roger Durling.

            “Judy” is set in 1968 when Garland arrived in London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town, 30 years after she broke out in “Wizard of Oz.

            ‘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?
