  • post George and Amal Clooney donate $1m to combat US rightwing extremism - 22 August
  • The Clooney Foundation for Justice partners with the Southern Poverty Law Center to fight ?bigotry and hate? in the wake of the events in CharlottesvilleGeorge and Amal Clooney have announced a partnership with the Southern Poverty Law Center to combat ?bigotry and hate? in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. The Clooney Foundation for Justice says that it will bestow a grant of $1m to the SPLC in order to assist the civil rights organization in its attempts to combat violent extremism in the US, following the death of counter-protester Heather Heyer at a white supremacist rally in the campus city earlier this month.

  • post Mark Wahlberg named 2017's highest-paid male actor with $68m - 22 August
  • The Transformers star pushed last year?s winner Dwayne Johnson into second position in Forbes? annual listMark Wahlberg has been named the highest paid male actor in Hollywood, earning an estimated $68m in the past 12 months.The annual list, assembled by Forbes, places the 46-year-old in top position after paychecks for Transformers: The Last Knight and forthcoming comedy sequel Daddy?s Home 2. Yet despite his earnings, the most recent Transformers film was a commercial disappointment, making $600m worldwide ? the lowest performing installment yet. He?s just finished production on fact-based Ridley Scott drama All the Money in the World, alongside Michelle Williams and Kevin Spacey. Continue reading...
  • post The Hitman's Bodyguard knocks Dunkirk off the top of the UK box office ? but only just - 22 August
  • Previews help propel Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson to No 1, but Christopher Nolan?s juggernaut is still performing powerfullyKnocking Dunkirk off the top spot of the official comScore UK box office chart, The Hitman?s Bodyguard opens with £1.98m from 467 cinemas, including preview takings of £367,000. While 2017 has been light on action comedy hits for adult audiences, the Ryan Reynolds/Samuel L Jackson team-up, rated 15 for language and bloody violence, filled a gap in the market.

  • post Gemma Arterton reveals studio filmed her exercising to make her lose weight for role - 22 August
  • Actor describes ?traumatic? experience in Morocco when Hollywood producers flew out a personal trainer and filmed her at the gym to prove she was exercisingGemma Arterton has revealed that she was once forced to lose weight for a role by Hollywood producers, who flew out a personal trainer to work with her on location and filmed her at the gym to prove that she was exercising. Speaking to the Guilty Feminist podcast in June, the British actor described the experience, which occurred while she was filming in Morocco, as ?traumatic?. Continue reading...
  • post Godzilla vs Kong: whoever wins Hollywood's monster mashup, we all lose - 22 August
  • Adam Wingard has promised a definitive victor when the giant beasties go at it in 2020. But the history of ?versus? movies suggest that, irrespective of who triumphs, audiences will feel short-changedThe last 18 months have seen something of a renaissance for the high-octane big-budget B-movie. From the hyper-real monster mashup of Kong: Skull Island to the one-gal-against-the-ocean thrills of Jaume Collet-Serra?s The Shallows, to trashy superhero epics such as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, the multiplexes have been invaded with low-concept, semi-infantilised cinema. It is no surprise to discover that Hollywood executives are currently greenlighting movies based on the whims of four-year-olds, because most of the above films could have been dreamt up ? at least in terms of their basic concept ? by small children.Not that this is necessarily a bad thing for those of us who love genre fare. The entire blockbuster era was ushered in when Hollywood began looking for counter-programming to the auteur-led film-making of the 1970s, and for all its faults it has delivered myriad examples of totemic cinema. Steven Spielberg?s Jaws is a B-movie in all but name, right down to the giant rubber shark that features as the antagonist; likewise, 1977?s Star Wars is the kind of far-out, boys? own space romp that would and could only have been made as a cheap throwaway for the drive-ins and grindhouse theatres just a few years previously.

  • post These aren't the spinoffs you are looking for: Star Wars movies that should never get the green light - 21 August
  • From Han Solo to Obi-Wan Kenobi, some of Star Wars? most famous characters have movies on the way. We can only pray that Chewbacca or Jar Jar Binks are not among themThe Star Wars spin-offs have a tricky line to walk. On one hand, they have to fill in the backstories of some of the most famous characters in movie history. On the other, they have to retain some of the mystery that made them so beloved in the first place. You just have to see how badly George Lucas botched Boba Fett, saddling him with untold daddy issues in the prequels, to see how tricky it?s going to be.But, still, they keep coming. As well as the troubled Young Han Solo movie, there?s now likely to be a Young Obi-Wan movie, a Young Jabba the Hutt movie and, yes, another crack at a Young Boba Fett movie. At this rate, it?s only a matter of time before every peripheral Star Wars character in history ends up with their own spin-off. But some characters do not deserve such treatment. These are those characters. Continue reading...
  • post Rooney Mara: look out, Greta Gerwig ? there?s a new arthouse darling in town - 21 August
  • Is the star of Una and A Ghost Story next in line for the crown of indie queen? Related: A Ghost Story review ? Casey Affleck goes undercover in a strange and haunting tale Gena Rowlands, Parker Posey, Chloë Sevigny, Greta Gerwig. These are the US indie queens, women whose legends were built by low-budget films, who used their intrinsic cool and prolific output to keep the most precarious corner of the film industry afloat. With this month?s release of Una and A Ghost Story, two high-profile indies both starring Rooney Mara, is it time to anoint the next successor? Continue reading...
  • post Jerry Lewis: a knockabout clown with a dark and melancholy inner life | Peter Bradshaw - 21 August
  • The former comedy partner of Dean Martin, and star of films such as The Nutty Professor and The King of Comedy, was a complex, brilliant figure who evolved into an audacious cinematic innovator?Jerry Lewis: from Cinderfella to King of Comedy ? a career in clipsFor some, it is his masterpiece. For others, it is unendurably and outrageously awful, an exercise in frantically broad slapstick comedy that inspires pure disbelief, as well as derision for those reported chin-strokers and ironic postmodernists in France and elsewhere who affect to admire it. The film is The Nutty Professor, from 1963, that wacky doppelgänger farce inspired by Jekyll and Hyde, co-written and directed by its legendary star? Jerry Lewis. Related: Jerry Lewis, king of comedy, dies at 91 Continue reading...
  • post Rupert Everett: ?I was living in terror for my life when Aids began? - 20 August
  • The star of new comedy Quacks had his big break in 1981, but spent the period in ?sheer panic? watching friends die. He talks about fear, flops and coming back from the wilderness yearsIn one way, Quacks is a natural place to find Rupert Everett. The keenly British comedy has ?something of the Carry On, Stanley Baxter era? about it, he says ? a sharp, playful script; a generous, gracious ensemble cast also featuring Rory Kinnear and Mathew Baynton; very accurate historical detail, such as Everett?s thunderous physician trying to cure what sounds like cystitis with the topical application of a baked potato. Really, what could be more fitting? Who else would you cast?Yet the legacy of his first, dazzling appearance into British culture, the stage and then film version of Another Country, means that if you were alive and at all conscious in the early 1980s, you can?t help thinking of an Everett sighting as a rare honour, like seeing a ptarmigan, or an MP at a bus stop.
