Disney has some major plans for Fox — here's what we learned at CinemaCon

Following the official absorption of 20th Century Fox into Disney last month, Disney came to CinemaCon on Wednesday and showed just how much Fox will be a part of its theatrical slate. Turns out, it will play a big part — so big that there will have to be release-date changes so Fox and Disney movies don't go up against one another on the same weekends. Business Insider is at CinemaCon. We're breaking down everything Disney revealed in its presentation to theater owners. The big question goin...

‘Ford v. Ferrari’ Looks Like Awards Contender Based on CinemaCon Preview

Perhaps newly-minted Disney employee and Fox Film vice chairman Emma Watts said it best herself: movies like the studio’s “Ford v. Ferrari” are “an endangered species.” Lucky, then, that Disney inherited the film earlier this month when it acquired 21st Century Fox, and Watts along with it to continue in her role as production president […]

Joker: Marc Maron Praises Todd Phillips’ ‘Interesting Approach’ to the Film

BEGIN SLIDESHOW Joker: Marc Maron praises Todd Phillips’ ‘interesting approach’ to the film In an avalanche of superhero movies and projects based on comic books, Todd Phillips’ Joker is looking to set itself apart from the herd, telling a smaller story centered on an iconic villain, years before he’s synonymous with the terror and destruction of Gotham City. In an interview with NME, co-star Marc Maron explained that while he’s wary of comic book movies in general, he was swayed by how ...

Who is the one true Batman? That answer and more as the Caped Crusader turns 80 at WonderCon

Jim Lee was 5 years old when his family moved to the United States in the ’60s. Though he didn’t read English, Lee understood what Batman was all about. “You could tell what was going on just from the pictures themselves,” says Lee, the co-publisher and chief creative officer for DC, which has been Batman’s home since his debut in 1939. Film producer Michael E. Uslan vividly remembers his own childhood encounter with Batman. He and his big brother had 50 cents, enough to buy five comic books in ...

This Is What Gloria Steinem Was Doing At Your Age

Gloria Steinem has had several long and venerable careers, working as an activist for women’s rights, a journalist, and an author.

You Can Now Watch the Deleted ‘Vice’ Musical Number

Adam McKay‘s Vice is a very off-the-wall biopic of Dick Cheney, but there was one moment apparently too wacky to include: a musical number. The number comes early in the film, where Christian Bale‘s Cheney is learning the ins and outs of politics from Steve Carell‘s Donald Rumsfeld. McKay talked about the scene previously, and verified it would be included on the Blu-ray release. Now, as the Blu-ray and digital release approaches, the scene is finally available for all to see.

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...

The Weird Role Lube and Latex Played in Transforming Christian Bale Into Dick Cheney

Nasal plugs, K-Y Jelly, yellowing dental veneers - the key items scattered on set of the Academy Award-nominated film Vice sound more like what you'd find in a nursing home medicine cabinet than beauty products. And yet, these are just a few of many things the movie's makeup team used to transform a star-studded cast into rising politicians.

Oscars 2019: Before you bet on the Academy Awards, you might want to read this

Here are my expert Oscar predictions. And my “expert” advice is: Don’t bet on anything this year! At least not in the Best Picture race. Yes, it’s been hard to predict that winner since the academy expanded the nomination count and introduced a preferential balloting system for the category about 10 years ago. But other factors make this one the biggest free-for-all Best Picture race of the decade. For one thing, all of the major Hollywood guilds have given their highest honors to different film...

Devourer of Planets: Dissecting the Nuance-Free Yet Brilliant Filmmaking of Adam McKay’s ‘Vice’

Vice bides its time, at least at first. It opens with a brief, Paul Greengrass-style glimpse of the Situation Room on 9/11. Accompanying this cinéma vérité are snippets of all the war and torture that would follow; Adam McKay, now on a roll after The Big Short , is as much a documentarian or video essayist as he is a fiction filmmaker, setting the stage for events that we, the public, are all too familiar with. However, the film’s opening credits don’t arrive until 12 minutes later. In the ...

Does Bradley Cooper Have A Shot At Winning Best Actor?

Well, we know how Sean Penn would vote in the Best Actor Oscar race, if he were a member of the Academy. In an op-ed for Deadline, Academy Award winner Penn wrote an invective explaining why A Star Is Born deserves to win it all. Penn especially heaped praise onto Bradley Cooper, the movie's director, writer, and star. "He's made the most successful contemporary love story of all time," Penn pronounced, while encouraging voters to participate in commending the movie while they can.Penn was comp...

One of the men they considered was Scott Adkins, the martial artist and star of down and dirty direct-to-video action films like Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning.
