New Report Indicates Bryan Singer Fired From ‘Red Sonja’ Movie

Last month, we got word that Red Sonja was on hold in the wake of even more sexual misconduct allegations against director Bryan Singer. Now, it looks like Singer is officially off the movie. The news of Singer’s removal came unceremoniously, buried within a much larger story about a completely different topic. Now let us all cross our fingers and hope we never have to hear about Bryan Singer again. THR has a lengthy piece this week about the scandal surrounding Warner Bros. head Kevin Tsuji...

Brendan Fraser Opens Up About His Superman Audition in the Early 2000s

Brendan Fraser can currently be seen as the DC Comics character Robotman on the DC Universe series Doom Patrol. Well, you don’t necessarily see him since he’s just providing the voice of a, well, robot man. But long before this opportunity came along, Fraser was in line to play one of the biggest DC Comics superheroes of all time. Back in the early 2000s, Brendan Fraser was still enjoying the success of The Mummy franchise and the various comedies he made throughout the ’90s. He was a pretty bi...

"As part of an extended podcast recently, I suggested that if closeted people were instead open about their sexuality they wouldn’t abuse others."

"That, of course, is wrong. My intention was to encourage the LGBT audience I was addressing to be proud and open about their sexuality. In doing so, my point was clumsily expressed. I would never, ever trivialize or condone abuse of any kind. I deeply regret my careless remarks and apologize unreservedly for any distress I caused."Said Ian McKellen, backing off after criticism for observing that actor Kevin Spacey and director Bryan Singer "were in the closet" and "If they had been able to be o...

‘Rocketman’ Video Features Taron Egerton Actually Singing, Unlike a Certain Oscar Winner

If Rami Malek won an Oscar largely for lip synching as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, that should mean Hollywood is going to award Taron Egerton with an Oscar in the upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman for actually singing…right? Egerton took the stage with the legendary musician to sing “Tiny Dancer,” and the timing of this performance strikes me as interesting: as Malek picked up his trophy on the Oscar stage, Egerton was belting out a tune and potentially kicking off a possible Best Actor ...

All the winners of the 2019 Oscars

This year's Oscars season has been full of controversy, but the big night is finally here. With no host but plenty of Queen, the 91st Academy Awards kicked off on Sunday at the Dolby Theater. But it was a long road up to this point. Multiple best-picture nominees have been mired in backlash, and the race is wide open. Regina King won the first award of the night for her supporting performance in "If Beale Street Could Talk." Will Netflix's "Roma" or "Green Book" take home the final prize, or so...

The Oscars (2019)

After an embattled few months beset with controversy, the Oscars have finally arrived. For reasons beyond understanding, I do enjoy the show. Partly because I like movies, but mostly because it's fun to dunk on the Oscars. This sort of thing isn't unique to the Oscars, but this year seems especially ripe. This is partly due to the standard snubs and occasional recognition of poor art or the strange injection of political bickering into the arena (by which I mean internal Hollywood politics rathe...

2019 Academy Awards: Which Hollywood streets are closing?

One week before the big night, Hollywood Boulevard was completely closed in both directions between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive, where crews installed the lengthy red carpet and adjacent bleachers last week.

Why more Academy Award controversies erupted this year — and why there’ll probably always be more

As you’ve probably heard, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences can’t do anything right. At least that might be your impression if you believe the blitz of bad news that has jammed traditional and social media this year. As next Sunday’s 91st Academy Awards broadcast looms, we’re being reminded that the Oscars organization: Tried to marginalize the likes of “Black Panther” in a proposed new Outstanding Achievement in Popular Film category; Couldn’t talk anyone into hosting their par...

‘Red Sonja’ Movie Put on Hold in Wake of Recent Bryan Singer Allegations

Bryan Singer has been mired in allegations of sexual misconduct for a large part of his career, and those allegations have been boiling over in the last year, particularly after Singer was fired from Bohemian Rhapsody for failing to show up for work. Despite Singer’s problems, Millennium Films was willing to plunk down up to $10 million to hire the director to helm their long-delayed Red Sonja movie. But it seems like outcry against this has won out – for now. Millennium has now put the film on...
