Box Office Preview: 'Aquaman,' 'Mary Poppins Returns' to Lead Christmas Crush
A crowded pack of year-end holiday films faces a herculean task: make up for their being no Star Wars film for the first Christmas since 2014. By all accounts, Aquaman and Mary Poppins Returns, in particular, appear up to the task as the North American box office heads for a record year.

Directed by Rob Marshall, Mary Poppins Returns takes flight on Wednesday in order to get a jump on the competition. The sequel to the classic 1964 film stars Emily Blunt as the iconic nanny alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda, Emily Mortimer, Ben Wishaw and Angela Lansbury.

‘Green Book’ Star Mahershala Ali Apologizes to His Character’s Family After They Call Film ‘Symphony of Lies’

‘Green Book’ Star Mahershala Ali Apologizes to His Character’s Family After They Call Film ‘Symphony of Lies’
Green Book” may have won over the Hollywood Foreign Press Association with five Golden Globe nominations, but the family of Mahershala Ali’s character, Dr. Don Shirley, is not happy with the film at all — to the point where the Oscar winner called them to apologize.

In an interview with Shadow & Act, Edwin Shirley III, nephew of the late jazz legend, called watching “Green Book” a “jarring” experience, while Don’s brother, Dr. Maurice Shirley, called it a “symphony of lies.” They said that no one in Shirley’s family was consulted during development of the film, which tells the story of a growing friendship between Shirley and his hired escort, Tony “Lip” Vallelonga.

A friendship that the Shirleys say didn’t exist.

“You asked what kind of relationship he had with Tony?

Francis Lee To Direct Kate Winslet & Saoirse Ronan In Lesbian Lovers Drama ‘Ammonite’

Francis Lee To Direct Kate Winslet & Saoirse Ronan In Lesbian Lovers Drama ‘Ammonite’
Director Francis Lee’s gay drama love story “God’s Own Country” was easily one of the Best Films of 2017 You Didn’t See and so damn good it also made our list proper Best Films Of 2017 list. Lee’s incredible film, intimate, sparse and unsentimental, created a terrific, unvarnished look at masculine love, something of a nice anecdote to the won’t-show-dongs conservative take of “Call Me By Your Name,” released in the same year.

‘Kingdom’ Trailer: Korean Netflix Drama Series Brings Zombies To Ancient Times

We’re at the point now where the zombie genre seems a bit played out. After the recent 20th season of “The Walking Dead” and the flood of zombie films of the last decade, there just doesn’t seem to be any sort of innovation in the genre. However, with “Kingdom,” Netflix hopes to change that.

In the new trailer for “Kingdom,” we see that the zombie genre has been transported to ancient Korea, where a member of royalty has taken to burying his enemies in the lake near his home.

‘Elementary’ to End with Upcoming Seventh Season

CBS’s long-running Sherlock Holmes drama Elementary is coming to an end. The series began under somewhat controversial circumstances, as Sherlock creator Steven Moffat revealed he had been approached by an American TV network about adapting his popular Sherlock Holmes take for U.S. audiences. When he declined due to schedule issues, he was dismayed to find said network went ahead without him. The resulting show was Elementary, a similarly modern take on the Sherlock Holmes story with its own twists. For one, Watson was portrayed by a woman—Lucy Liu. For another, Johnny Lee Miller’s Sherlock Holmes …

Paramount Confronts ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Backlash by Trolling Fans With Marketing

Paramount Pictures isn’t letting fan backlash get in the way of its upcoming family tentpole “Sonic the Hedgehog.” The film marks the feature directorial debut of Jeff Fowler, who was Oscar nominated for his short film “Gopher Broke” and served as an animation researcher on Spike Jonze’s “Where the Wild Things Are.” Similar to next year’s “Detective Pikachu,” Paramount’s “Sonic” is a live-action/animated hybrid, using motion capture CGI to insert an animated Sonic into the real world. The results have been polarizing, to say the least.

Ever since Paramount released a motion poster for the film on December 10, fans have taken to social media to criticize Sonic’s new look (read ScreenRant’s Best Reactions To Those Creepy Sonic the Hedgehog Posters), which included a more muscular physique than normally presented by the video game hero, as evidenced by Sonic’s now-beefy legs.

Nic Pizzolatto Helped Write the ‘Deadwood’ Movie — So David Milch Helped Write ‘True Detective’ Season 3

Nic Pizzolatto Helped Write the ‘Deadwood’ Movie — So David Milch Helped Write ‘True Detective’ Season 3
One of the more peculiar reports during the long development process of “True Detective” Season 3 was that David Milch had been brought in to help pen scripts. A TV legend who wrote on “Hill Street Blues” before creating “NYPD Blue” and “Deadwood,” Milch hadn’t written serialized television since HBO’s ill-fated 2012 series “Luck.”

So why did he come back now, and why this show?

It turns out that he was returning a favor. During a press conference in Beverly Hills Monday evening, Nic Pizzolatto said producer Scott Stephens introduced the two creators so the “True Detective” scribe could help with the “Deadwood” movie.

“We had gotten together because Scott is a producer on ‘Deadwood,’ and he had brought me in for a couple of weeks to sort of work for David on his ‘Deadwood’ film script,” Pizzolatto told reporters gathered at the Four Seasons hotel. “This was around when

Poacher Sentenced to Watch ‘Bambi’ Once a Month in Jail After Illegally Killing Deer

Disney’s 1942 animated classic “Bambi” is widely considered one of the most heartbreaking family films of all-time, and a Missouri judge is hoping a little of that Disney magic goes a long way in getting a convicted poacher to clean up his act. Lawrence County Judge Robert George has sentenced David Berry Jr. to a year in jail for illegally killing deer (via CNN). Part of Berry’s sentence is that he must watch “Bambi” once a month for the duration of his imprisonment.

As additionally reported by the Springfield News-Leader, Berry must “view the Walt Disney movie ‘Bambi,’ with the first viewing being on or before December 23, 2018, and at least one such viewing each month thereafter, during Defendants incarceration in the Lawrence County Jail.” Berry’s trial has been called one of Missouri’s largest cases of deer poaching. Berry would kill the deer and then take only their heads and antlers,
