The Tragedy Of Macbeth Trailer: Joel Coen, Denzel Washington, And Frances McDormand Do Shakespeare

Joel Coen is flying solo with "The Tragedy of Macbeth," a new take on the Shakespeare classic. While Joel Coen almost always works side-by-side with his brother Ethan, "The Tragedy of Macbeth" has him on his own — although that doesn't mean the Coen Brothers have had a falling out. "Ethan just didn't want to make movies anymore," said longtime Coen collaborator Carter Burwell. "Ethan seems very happy doing what he's doing, and I'm not sure what Joel will do after this. They also have a ton of sc...

Midnight Mass Creator Mike Flanagan Warns Haunting Fans Not To Look For Hidden Ghosts

The upcoming Netflix miniseries "Midnight Mass" comes from Mike Flanagan, the terrifying mind that gifted us "The Haunting of Hill House" and "The Haunting of Bly Manor." Fans of the Haunting anthology series are likely anticipating hidden ghosts in Flanagan's latest, as the series infamously hid its scares in the background, waiting for viewers to catch them in the corner of their eye. But Flanagan's mind contains multitudes — not every scare is the same. For that reason, he's made a point of w...

Comic Book Legend Harley Quinn Was Inspired By A Dream – In A Soap Opera

Daniel Craig On Female Bond: 'There Should Simply Be Better Parts For Women'

One thing's for sure: change is coming to the "James Bond" franchise, one way or another. After "No Time to Die" finally releases, Daniel Craig's remarkably lengthy stint as Bond will draw to a close (there are people watching these movies who probably can't even remember the "James Blonde?!" outrage when he was first cast in the role!) and the hunt for a new Bond will begin anew. Given the uncomfortably sordid history of the franchise when it comes to the treatment of women and people of color,...

Orson Welles' Directed Films Ranked Worst To Best

Surveying Welles' filmography as a whole, some trends emerge. It's easy to see that Welles was a fan of Shakespeare, particularly the Bard's characters who author their own undoing. Whenever Welles portrays relationships, his characters evince betrayal, hypocrisy, and deception. He returns to the turn of the 19th into the 20th century repeatedly, an unexpectedly early era for a man born in 1915.He was also remarkably prolific. Even after winnowing his filmography down to the projects he directed...

Kathryn Hahn Has Been Cast As Joan Rivers In Showtime's The Comeback Girl

Comedy legend Joan Rivers lived a life that constantly defied expectations and traditions, resulting in her ceiling-smashing rise as a prominent and successful woman in a business that hardly seemed willing to give her time or space. In that light, it's always been of the utmost importance that any fictionalized retelling of Rivers' life would only be attempted with an actor who can similarly rise to the occasion and embody an icon who refused to be easily defined. So, who else but "WandaVision"...
