  1. Released in the mid-1990s, "The Beatles Anthology" was an authorized, multimedia project. Geoff Wonfor, a Grammy-winning British filmmaker who directed the Beatles’ acclaimed “Anthology” documentary series and worked on the 1980s music program “The Tube” as well as several projects with Paul McCartney, has died at age 73. His death was confirmed Tuesday by daughter Sam Wonfor, who said he died in Newcastle, where he grew up. Additional details were not immediately available. Released in the mid-1990s, “The Beatles Anthology” was an authorized, multimedia project that included an eight-part documentary, three double albums and a coffee table book. Wonfor spent 4 1/2 years on the film, which combined archival footage with new interviews with the then-three surviving Beatles (McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison, who died in 2001). Wonfor’s challenges included weaving in commentary from John Lennon, who had been murdered in 1980. “He was very vocal (in interviews),” Wonfor told the Los Angeles Times in 1995. “I hit on the idea of listening to his interviews that were done … getting all the pertinent questions and answers to any year we were doing (in the documentary) and then pose the exact same question to the other three Beatles, so it looked like the four of them were answering the same questions, which of course they were.” The Anthology helped renew worldwide obsession in a band that had hardly been forgotten and brought Wonfor and co-director Bob Smeaton a Grammy in 1997 for best long form music video. His other credits included “Band Aid 20,” a documentary about the anniversary re-recording of the British charity song “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” and “Sunday for Sammy,” a tribute to the late British actor Sammy Johnson. Wonfor had been prominent in British entertainment since the 1980s, when he directed a handful of episodes of “The Tube” and made a documentary about “Shanghai Surprise,” a feature film produced by Harrison and starring Madonna and Sean Penn. His work with Harrison would unexpectedly lead to the biggest undertaking of his career. “I was at my dad’s and it was Paul McCartney who rang up and he says, ‘Hello there, you’re alright’? And I say, ‘Yeah, I’m fine,’” Wonfor explained during a 2018 appearance at the Newcastle Film Festival. “He said, ‘I was talking to a mate of yours last night.’ I went, ‘Who the hell does he know that I know?’ He says, ‘A little guy called George Harrison.’ … And he says, ‘Anyway,’ and we talked long into the night and he says, ‘We want to do a history of the Beatles and you are that man.’”
  2. The scandalous coffee table tome will receive an 800-page re-release with Yves Saint Laurent. Madonna speaks onstage during the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards at Barclays Center on Sept. 12, 2021 in Brooklyn. Madonna will ring in three decades of Sex at Miami’s Art Basel later this month. The pop star’s 1992 erotic coffee table book is set to receive a 30th-anniversary re-release during the art show courtesy of Yves Saint Laurent and New York-based published Callaway. The new edition of Sex will be 800 pages long and come with its own art exhibition curated by Madonna and YSL’s creative director Anthony Vaccarello. “I’d like to put you in a trance. ……………YSL presents SEX-Re-Release…Miami Nov 29- Dec 4,” Madonna shared on Instagram alongside a photo of herself with red hair, staring in the mirror, waring a nude-colored corset and tan fur coat. A separate post of the event’s invitation confirms the exhibit will be held at Yves Saint Laurent’s Rive Droite project. With photography by the famous Stephen Meisel, Madonna originally released Sex on Oct. 21, 1992, as a sort of visual companion to her fifth studio album Erotica. The LP contained sexually charged singles like the title track, “Deeper and Deeper,” “Bad Girl” and “Fever” and ultimately bowed at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. The book, meanwhile, created quite the stir as it spent three weeks at No. 1 on the New York Times Best Seller List and became — according to her 2002 biography by Andrew Morton — the best-selling coffee table book of all time. Last month, Madonna reflected on Sex‘s cultural impact in a separate Instagram post, writing in part, “I also wrote about my sexual fantasies and shared my point of view about sexuality in an ironic way. I spent the next few years being interviewed by narrow minded people who tried to shame me for empowering myself as a Woman. I was called a whore, a witch, a heretic and the devil. “Now Cardi B can sing about her WAP. Kim Kardashian can grace the cover of any magazine with her naked ass and Miley Cyrus can come in like a wrecking ball,” Her Madgesty continued. “You’re welcome bi—es.” Check out Madonna’s announcement below. https://www.instagram.com/madonna/?utm_source=ig_embed&ig_rid=8e77693f-05c6-421d-8840-b96b02bab7cc https://www.instagram.com/ysl/?utm_source=ig_embed&ig_rid=8f2b9701-6f20-4007-8c01-493643fa5ba9
  3. "I know your daddy is playing birthday songs for you up in heaven," she wrote in an Instagram post featuring photos of the late singer. Aaron Carter performs at Gramercy Theatre on March 3, 2013 in New York City. Aaron Carter‘s fiancée Melanie Martin celebrated the first birthday of her son with the late singer on Tuesday (Nov. 22), just a few weeks after the “I Want Candy” star tragically passed away at age 34. “Happy birthday to my baby boy Prince Lyric Carter,” Martin wrote alongside a sweet slideshow of Carter with the bundle of joy. “Today is going to be a tough one for me but I know your daddy is playing birthday songs for you up in heaven I love you baby boy!!!” https://scontent.cdninstagram.com/v/t51.2885-15/316368383_1182241225718180_7112408562497942439_n.jpg?stp=c0.420.1080.1080a_dst-jpg_e15_s150x150&_nc_ht=scontent.cdninstagram.com&_nc_cat=1&_nc_ohc=WBvirv6kzEcAX-bA4df&edm=AJBgZrYBAAAA&ccb=7-5&oh=00_AfB6aOFlVlBqiNGCE5iKndKSBYm_F51uHGPYkEL2NSAyEQ&oe=6380AC7C&_nc_sid=78c662 In the wake of the “That’s How I Beat Shaq” singer’s passing, his older brother Nick Carter has launched a donation fund for On Our Sleeves, a children’s mental health charity, in his memory. A representative from Aaron Carter’s management team confirmed his death to Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter on Nov. 5. No cause of death was given. A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department told The Hollywood Reporter at the time that a suspicious death took place at the address of Carter’s residence but could not confirm the identity. “Aaron my darling, I miss you so much my Angel. I don’t know how I can go on with out you, but I hope you can give me that strength somehow,” Martin wrote on Instagram following her fiancé’s death. “I will miss you forever like the stars miss the sun in the morning skies.” She continued in a separate post, “Heaven has gained an angel and a piece of my heart.”

  5. "Fighting with myself so I can't help that I'm competitive/ This movie is my life but I still remain uncredited," he raps on the song. Machine Gun Kelly Colson Baker, better known as Machine Gun Kelly, released the title track from his semi-autobiographical movie Taurus on Wednesday (Nov. 23). The flick features MGK in the lead role under his birth name. The 32-year-old plays a troubled artist on the rise searching for the spark that will inspire his next record. “Fighting with myself so I can’t help that I’m competitive/ This movie is my life but I still remain uncredited,” he raps on the track. “I don’t care how big I get, I still remain unedited/ I built this from the ground up, y’all just living it.” The film, written and directed by Tim Sutton, also stars Kelly’s fiancée Megan Fox, as well as Maddie Hasson, Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory, Ruby Rose, Scoot McNairy, Lil Tjay and “Glass House” collaborator Naomi Wild. It is currently available in select theaters and on demand. On Sunday, MGK won favorite rock artist at the 2022 American Music Awards, saying during his acceptance speech: “There have been some people in the rock community who have called me a tourist, but they’re wrong. I’m a rocket man,” he proclaimed. Additionally, he received his first Grammy nomination last week, earning a best rock album nod for Mainstream Sellout, which includes the singles “Maybe” and “Emo Girl” with Willow Smith. The album was his second straight to top the Billboard 200. Check out the “Taurus” video below.
  6. This makes total sense. Ever since Seinfeld and Veep icon Julia Louis-Dreyfus surfaced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, making her first appearance in the closing moments of the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, fans knew she was being set up to hold a significant role in future projects. You don’t hire someone of her caliber for a cameo, however, even Louis-Dreyfus admits to being surprised by the offer to join what has been a constantly evolving on-screen universe. Her mysterious character, Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, recruited John Walker (Wyatt Russell) in that scene, then appeared with Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) as Black Widow drew to a close. Marvel is following a playbook with Valentina, and producer Nate Moore shares with us part of their strategy with regards to this character and a classic character who came before her. Nate Moore sat down with CinemaBlend to discuss Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and Valentina Allegra de Fontaine was brought up because she surfaces in this sequel, as well. In it, we learn that the character once was married to Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman), and still maintains a close relationship with the federal agent. Add it to the growing list of things we know about her. And when describing Marvel’s approach to De Fontaine in the MCU, Moore compared her to another powerful string-puller… Nick Fury. He said: " It is not dissimilar to how we dealt with Nick Fury initially, in just sort of seeing her pop up in a couple of different places, hopefully that are interesting. And starting to get a sense of her nature as a character. And starting to ask the very real question, ‘Is she a good guy?’ But to also give some context for her, we thought was interesting. And her relationship with Everett Ross in this movie was both fun to think about and craft, and I think shows you, by the end of the film, a different color to that character that hopefully makes people lean in a bit. And certainly makes Julia excited, which I like. " As is mentioned in the full interview clip at the top of this story, Valentina’s presence is building to the upcoming Marvel movie Thunderbolts, which as of right now is closing out Phase 5. She’s featured in the team concept art that Marvel Studios shared. She’s expected to lead this band of antiheroes (full-blown criminals?) when that movie arrives on July 26, 2024. Thunderbolts The interpretation of the Thunderbolts will be different from the comics, where Norman Osborn led a team of pure villains masquerading as the Avengers following a conflict that left the real heroes in bad standings. Something devastating could happen in a Marvel Phase 5 that arrives before Thunderbolts, hastening the need for Val to recruit Yelena, Taskmaster, Ghost, Bucky Barnes and more. While we wait to find out, brush up even more on the Thunderbolts’ history, because we feel like it’s going to be important. As we know about Nick Fury, that man is everywhere… and he keeps on ticking. He’ll be an integral part of the Disney+(opens in new tab) series Secret Invasion (according to this badass trailer) and may end up being a thorn in Valentina’s side. Sam Jackson versus Julia Louis-Dreyfus? Sign us up.
  7. How adorable. Jason Momoa’s latest role in Slumberland is his most family-friendly yet. In the November-trending Netflix title, the Game of Thrones and Aquaman actor plays the satyr-like companion to a young girl who discovers a dreamworld. And when I say family-friendly, I also include Momoa’s latest addition to his family, his pet pig. In Slumberland, Marlow Barkley’s Nemo sees her stuffed fluffy pig friend named “Pig” come to life at night and tag along on her adventures with Momoa’s Flip. So of course the DC actor decided to watch the Pig scenes with his own squealing bestie. Check it: It was clearly a bit difficult for Momoa’s piggy to sit still while they watched a few clips from Slumberland, but what a joy we got to see the actor alongside his cute new pet. Earlier this month, Jason Momoa introduced the pig on Instagram as either “Lau Lau” or “Manapua,” as he was still deciding on a name. https://www.instagram.com/prideofgypsies/?utm_source=ig_embed&ig_rid=713084e1-1dea-4f1b-8852-6fa29ff4a174 Momoa captioned the post by saying that “this is why” he can’t work with animals, as he ends up bringing them home. In the video itself, the actor said he was hoping to bring his new pet to the Slumberland premiere with a top hat, but in the background, it sounded like his mother was protesting. He was still deciding which name fit the little guy. When his mom asked if he was domesticated, Momoa said he’s all Hawaiian and all feral – just “like his pops.” When Momoa attended the Los Angeles premiere of Slumberland, he updated Entertainment Tonight, saying the pig was in Hawaii. Since he’s technically a wild boar, the actor apparently couldn’t bring him to the event. You can check out CinemaBlend’s own Slumberland interviews with Jason Momoa and the cast, where the actor exclaimed that Flip smells like “rainbow farts of love.” After Jason Momoa initially came onto the Hollywood scene as this intimidating badass, it’s been wondrous to see his soft side over the years through his social media, interviews and acts like this of falling in love with a pig and watching his latest movie with him. Slumberland is the latest family adventure for your holiday season viewing and even includes his own daughter’s dance routine to a Dua Lipa song. It can be watched now with a Netflix subscription.
  8. A WWE star might've auditioned for the role. Marvel Studios has made some pretty surprising casting choices over the years for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Despite that, some may be quite shocked by this latest piece of news. The massive company reportedly approached a WWE star to audition for the role of Namor in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Wrestling fans might be interested to learn that there was a chance that the studio could've rolled the dice on none other than Damian Priest for the massive MCU role. The idea of the Judgement Day member being approached by Marvel to audition for the role of Namor, the leader of the underwater world of Talokan is interesting. According to Fightful Select, it’s unclear as to whether or not the wrestler, whose real name Luis Martinez, actually auditioned for the role. But after hearing this news, it's hard to get the notion of him playing the classic superhero out of my head. While it may be weird to hear that an inexperienced actor like Damian Priest may have been approached for such a meaty role in the MCU, it’s not entirely surprising for a WWE wrestler would be asked to audition. Dave Bautista found great success in the massive franchise as Guardians of the Galaxy's Drax the Destroyer and, after nearly a decade, he'll say goodbye to the character after his turn in the upcoming Vol. 3. John Cena is also making a splash in the superhero space, as he continues his work as Peacemaker for DC Studios. So there’s certainly space for professional wrestlers in the superhero genre. It also isn’t hard to believe that Damian Priest was at one point in consideration to play the character of Namor, considering the fresh character direction Black Panther: Wakanda Forever took the iconic warrior in. The movie altered antihero's origins and switched out his homeworld of Atlantis for the Mayan-inspired Talokan. And ultimately, Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta was cast in the role. Priest is of Puerto Rican descent, and that falls in line with the plans that Marvel and director Ryan Coogler had in mind for the character. Obviously, Priest missed out on the role this time, but perhaps there’s an opportunity for him to appear as a relative or confidant of Namor’s at a later date. For now, Damian Priest is hustling and preparing for upcoming WWE events, as Survivor Series approaches and WrestleMania season is just around the corner. It’s hard to say what his plans are for the latter or where his faction may lead him in the new year, but Priest has consistently proven that he has what it takes to be one of the top stars of the company. Many of the WWE’s former top stars later went on to have very successful acting careers in Hollywood, so who knows, maybe Marvel was ahead of the curve -- if it did indeed try to scoop up the wrestler. We'll just have to wait and see what the future holds for the man once referred to as "Punisher Martinez." Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is now playing in theaters. It’s the final MCU movie planned for 2022 but, don’t worry, there are plenty of upcoming Marvel movies on the schedule for 2023 and beyond. As for Damian Priest, he’s a fixture on Monday Night Raw, which airs on USA Network on Mondays at 8:00 p.m. ET.
  9. Disney's first leading queer character in an animated feature film is here. Walt Disney Animation is making history with its 61st animated feature film, Strange World. For the first time, a leading character in one of the animation studio’s theatrical films is openly queer. That character is none other than, Jaboukie Young-White’s Ethan Clade, who is part of the movie's broader storyline about what it means to be a father and son. It’s a particularly big moment for the history of LGBTQ+ representation in Disney movies because of how authentic, welcomed and interwoven Ethan Clade is within the movie’s the bigger overarching story. Jaboukie Young-White, who is an openly queer standup comedian, had the honor of voicing Ethan Clade after also representing the LGBTQ+ community on Disney+’s Baymax series as gay food truck owner, Mbita. Speaking to CinemaBlend about his role in Strange World, Young-White shared his feelings about bringing Ethan Clade to life. " I think the thing that really excited me was that Ethan's identity is a facet of who he is. And I mean, everyone at that age who you think you are changes week by week. Like you're constantly reinventing yourself or reimagining yourself or like what you're going to be when you grow up. And I think for Ethan specifically, being able to see that on screen, and be that age, I mean, I'm not that age anymore, but I can only imagine how meaningful that would be, and the impact that it would have. I think that's undeniable and I think the thing that really drives that home is just the fact that it's not pointed out and it's not made this huge, gigantic thing. It's just like an accepted part of reality. " Strange World takes place in the mysterious and original land of Avalonia, where Ethan Clade is the son of Searcher Clade, the farmer who them all by discovering a crop and the grandson of Jaeger Clade, a storied adventurer, who has been missing and presumed dead Ethan’s entire life. Within the storyline of Strange World, Ethan’s identity is a part of his coming-of-age story, but he’s also dealing with wanting to chart his own path while his father tries to lay it out for him. When CinemaBlend also spoke to director Don Hall about the development of Ethan Clade in Strange World, the filmmaker shared that he was part of the story from the beginning, as well. He noted: " The idea that Ethan was gonna be a gay young man was day one. It was in the DNA of the character, and that's just where we started. And, as we were writing and crafting Ethan and getting Jaboukie on board, we worked with GLAAD a lot in terms of they would come in and see screenings and give us support and they were so kind and helpful. So, you know, we did want to make sure, in addition to groups within the studio and our animation studio as well groups that identify. It was a constant kind of feedback, showing stuff, getting thoughts and support actually. " GLAAD is the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, which is an organization that monitors the representation of the LGBTQ+ community. As Hall shared with us, the studio reached out and worked alongside GLAAD during the making of Strange World to make sure this historical character was done right along with looking to queer people in Disney Animation for support as well. The upcoming Disney movie has been met with overall positive reviews from critics, with CinemaBlend’s Strange World review gracing the movie with 3.5 out of 5 stars. Jaboukie Young-White stars alongside Jake Gyllenhaal, who plays Searcher, Dennis Quaid’s Jaeger, Lucy Liu’s Callisto and Gabrielle Union plays Ethan’s mom Meridian. Union also spoke to us about being proud of Meridian's “reasonable body proportions” among other things regarding the sweet and supportive family the Clades are. Strange World hits theaters on November 23. Stay tuned for more exclusive coverage on the latest Disney animated movie.
  10. Mr. Ghostface is coming sooner than before. 2022’s incredible year of horror all began in January with the first Scream movie in over a decade. After Ghostface returned with a vengeance and for a new generation, Scream 6 has been in production ahead of a March 31, 2023 release date. But the latest news about the next Scream installment is that it will come earlier than previously expected. Scream 6 is still part of the 2023 movie schedule, but now the movie will come out three weeks earlier, on March 10, 2023, per Paramount Pictures. At the same time, the studio also decided to shift the release date of Dungeons & Dragons down from March 3 to March 31, 2023. The good news is we won’t have to wait quite as long for Ghostface’s next rampage, but the shift isn’t anything major. March 2023 is actually a rather eventful month for movie releases. With these changes from Paramount in place, Scream 6 will go up against Adam Driver-led sci-fi film 65 on March 10. Then on March 17, DC’s Shazam! Fury of the Gods hits theaters. After that, John Wick: Chapter 4 is the major release for the weekend of March 24, along with the Florence Pugh drama A Good Person and Woody Harrelson's basketball comedy Champions coming out. The next Scream movie wrapped its production in Montréal, Canada in September after kicking things off in June. Scream 6 has a stacked cast featuring Courteney Cox’s Gale Weathers and the Carpenter sisters from the previous films, played by Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega, along with the Meeks-Martin siblings, played by Mason Gooding and Jasmin Savoy Brown. Hayden Panettiere will reprise her role as Kirby Reed after being in the fourth Scream movie, alongside a ton of other exciting names. Notably missing from the Scream 6 lineup is Neve Campbell, who passed on starring in the movie due to what she was offered. The actress, who has become an icon over the years for being Sidney Prescott in every other installment in the franchise, previously shared that she felt “undervalued” by the offer presented to her, especially as the star of a 25-year blockbuster franchise. Scream 6 is being made by the same creative team behind 2022's Scream, i.e. directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, and writers James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick. The 2022 Scream movie was a massive success, reaching the 25 top-grossing movies of the year thus far along with critical and commercial praise. CinemaBlend’s own Scream review awarded the film a 4.5 out of 5 stars. You can check out what else we know about Scream 6 here on CinemaBlend, as well follow along with all the upcoming horror movies coming our way to theaters and streaming next.
  11. Hugh Jackman's favorite superhero movies aren't even from Marvel. While Hugh Jackman had a pretty solid career on the stage before breaking into film, it was his role as Wolverine in the X-Men franchise that made the man a global superstar. Considering that Jackman's going to return to the role of Wolverine at least one more time, after planning to retire from the character, it’s clear Jackman loves Wolverine, but his favorite superhero movies aren’t in the X-Men franchise. In fact they're not even Marvel. Both of his favorites are from DC. Speaking with Variety, Hugh Jackman admits that his favorite superhero movies belong to the two big names in DC. He called seeing Richard Donner’s original Superman a “game changer.” As far as more modern superhero fare, Jackman loves the same Batman movie that the rest of us love, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. The actor explains… " My favorite superhero movie? Growing up, the first Superman. That was a game-changer. Dick Donner movie, Christopher Reeve. I'm gonna say, I'm thinking one of the Nolan Batmans. Dark Knight? I'm gonna go Dark Knight. " As favorite superhero movies go, it’s hard to go wrong with these choices. Richard Donner’s Superman is the movie that paved the way for all the others that came after. And as somebody else who first saw the movie as a kid, I can certainly attest to the way it completely changed the game. Seeing Superman come to life on the big screen was simply incredible. And while Batman, along with Spider-Man, has been one of the characters to be on the big screen the most in the last few decades, most would agree that it hasn’t been done better than Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. Even the rest of Nolan’s trilogy has trouble measuring up to the middle entry. Jackman doesn’t mention the superhero movies that he’s actually starred in. He probably doesn’t even think of the X-Men franchise in the same way that he does other comic book movies. He’s probably proud of the films and his work, but saying your favorite superhero movie was one you were in would be weird. While a lot of comic book movie fans might have a preference for Marvel or DC, the fact is that most fans watch everything, and Hugh Jackman is clearly one of those. He loves Batman and Superman but he like the MCU too. He admitted previously that had the Disney purchase of Fox happened sooner, it may have impacted his decision to stop playing Wolverine. And ultimately, he did reconsider that decision. Hugh Jackman will play Wolverine at least one more time in the forthcoming Deadpool 3. Maybe, by the time it’s all over, it will become his favorite superhero movie.
  12. Even Steve-O has his limits. Legendary Jackass team member Steve-O doesn’t frequently run into stunts that he’ll refuse to do. If anyone needed a reminder of that fact, the lineup of 2022’s new movie releases delivered pretty early with the February debut of Jackass Forever. So when it comes to those moments that Steve is compelled to say no, one would assume it has to be something pretty big. And yet, in a recent interview reflecting on the 2002 release of Jackass: The Movie, Steve-O admitted to Yahoo! that the stunt he rejected from that film actually amounted to something small. To be more specific, it was the size of a small toy car, which originally was meant to be placed straight up the man’s hindquarters. Recalling that memorable stunt, Steve admitted that the final stunt actually benefited from his reticence: " I got all this great footage backing out of it. And the way it played out for Ryan [Dunn], there was nothing that could be changed to make it any better. That was the most iconic, incredible thing we ever filmed. " It was a moment that made history for fans and newcomers alike. As Jackass: The Movie unfolded at the movies, debuting the MTV team as big screen contenders, Steve-O’s pass was the late Ryan Dunn’s gain. The resulting scene really needs to be seen to be believed, so take a look at this clip that shows Dunn taking one for the team: Years of shenanigans and brutal injuries suffered by the Jackass crew have changed everyone, even Steve-O. After several films and series where he’s pushed the envelope further and further, Steve has overcome fears in the name of some beyond R-rated stunts. When it came time to make Jackass Forever, that newfound fearlessness inspired the legacy cast member to pay tribute to his late friend and comrade: " I thought about backing out of the stunt, and how Ryan wasn't here to film the fourth movie. I spoke up saying that Ryan stepped in to put the toy car his butt when I backed out. And now that Ryan's not here, I wanna step up and just take it to a whole other level — put something up my butt that's just unbelievably epic. " Unfortunately for Steve-O, that eagerness sounds like it cancelled the stunt before it even began. Though there was still plenty of outrageous happenings with the entire Jackass Forever cast that made it to the screen or the stream, it’s kind of sad that this heartfelt tribute never happened. If Jackass 5 happens, maybe if Steve plays his cards right, he’ll be able to fulfill this tribute to an old friend. For now, if you want to revel in the glory days of the Jackass franchise, it’s pretty easy. The original Jackass series, as well as most of feature films, are all available to stream with a Paramount+ subscription. Meanwhile, if you want more action from Jackass Forever, you’ll need to head to Netflix, the official home of Jackass 4.5.
  13. Black Adam brought in some familiar DCEU faces. Warning: SPOILERS for Black Adam are ahead! Although Black Adam, the latest addition to the DC movies library, was primarily made up of new DC Extended Universe characters, there were a few familiar faces who stopped by. Namely, it was Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller who tasked the Justice Society with apprehending Dwayne Johnson’s title character, and after the main story concluded, Henry Cavill’s Superman paid a visit to Kahndaq in the Black Adam end-credits scene. But as it turns out, Aldis Hodge, who plays JSA leader Carter Hall/Hawkman, didn’t learn about either of those actors being involved in Black Adam until late into the game. Let’s start with Henry Cavill, as Black Adam marked the actor’s first time playing Superman in half a decade (remember that the Man of Steel was portrayed by a body double in Shazam! and the Peacemaker Season 1 finale). While Cavill’s Black Adam scene wasn’t shot until September, just a month before the movie premiered to the masses, Hodge didn’t learn about Superman’s presence until “maybe a day or two before the premiere.” However, Hodge admires the great lengths that were taken to keep Cavill’s cameo a secret, telling THR: " There was no talk of bringing back Superman and any of that. They’ve got to keep those things in a super vault, so all you can do is focus on trying to make Black Adam the best it can be. So you do hear things and you get ideas, but nothing is ever confirmed or really fully said. And honestly, I dig that because it was a huge surprise for me, and I love it that we got to experience it together with the audience. The fans have been trying to get Henry Cavill back in the red and blue for a minute, and D.J. was the perfect person to bring him back. It just doesn’t get any better. " So that accounts for Superman, but what about Amanda Waller? Well, remember that in Black Adam, the Task Force X leader we’ve previously seen in Suicide Squad, The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker only ever interacted with other characters over video calls. As such, it wasn’t until Black Adam was in reshoots that Aldis Hodge realized that David would be in the movie, having previously thought an appearance from her was no longer in the cards. He explained: " There was talk about it. Originally, there was an idea for her to jump in, but then I think there was a scheduling conflict. So when we first shot the movie, she wasn’t in it at all; we all had completely different scenes. But when we did reshoots, I saw her name on the script, and I said, ‘Oh shit!’ (Laughs.) So I kept that secret for the better part of this year, and it was pretty awesome. " Aldis Hodge added that he and Viola Davis previously worked together on the short-lived TV show City of Angels when he was “12 or 14 years old,” so although these two never actually reunite in person for Black Adam, it was “awesome” for him to “share the screen with her again in something of this magnitude.” It’s also worth remembering that Black Adam included Jennifer Holland’s Emilia Harcourt as Amanda Waller’s representative when the Justice Society brought the depowered Teth-Adam to that Task Force X black site. Emilia was introduced as a minor character in The Suicide Squad and later became one of Peacemaker’s leading protagonists. If you’re a fan of Henry Cavill’s Superman and/or Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller, the good news is we’ll be seeing more of them in the DCEU post-Black Adam. Cavill confirmed that this movie is “just a very small taste of things to come,” and along with Dwayne Johnson promising there will come a day when Black Adam and Superman fight on the big screen, it’s been reported that Warner Bros. wants to move forward with another Cavill-led Superman movie. As for Davis, there’s reportedly an Amanda Waller series in the works for HBO Max subscribers that Watchmen’s Christal Henry will write and executive produce. Black Adam is still playing in theaters, but if you already caught it and have your gaze pointed to the future, then browse through the lineup of upcoming DC movies.
  14. Some brides are rescheduling saying "Forever & Always." Taylor Swift’s latest album Midnights has rocked the world. It’s broken multiple records, and the girlies are extremely excited about her new music. With an album, a tour usually follows, and after eagerly waiting for five years, fans are finally getting the opportunity to see the megastar live in concert once again. However, while many are super excited about Swift’s upcoming appearances, especially with the Eras Tour, others are stressed because the tour will be coming through town on their wedding day, and this fact is wreaking havoc on brides’ plans in multiple ways. People are having issues with hotels, and worrying about parking, while some are literally thinking about rescheduling the wedding. These “New Romantics” have to deal with unexpected complications that could make their weddings a “Delicate” topic. In Massachusetts, WCVB reported that Christina Leonard had complications when her room blocks were canceled at a hotel, which is within walking distance of the concert's venue, on the same day Swift announced her stadium tour. Now, the hotel has issued an apology and offered to provide complimentary accommodations. On the other hand, some couples are thinking about rescheduling their weddings because the day Swift is scheduled to come to their city is on the same day as their ceremony. Rolling Stone compiled some of these reactions, including one from Jessica Ingersoll who posted a video on TikTok, saying: " But I live in Seattle, and that’s my wedding day. " She appears to be quite shaken by this announcement, as you can see in her video, which also is captioned with a question about if she should cancel her wedding. https://www.tiktok.com/?referer_url=www.cinemablend.com%2Ftelevision%2Fhow-taylor-swifts-recently-announced-concert-dates-wreaked-havoc-on-one-brides-plans&refer=embed&embed_source=70805737%2C70805737%2C70805737%2C120009725%2C120008483%3Bnull%3Bembed_discover_button Meanwhile, the Rolling Stone story also mentioned that people in women's bridal parties are debating if they should skip the wedding and go to the Eras Tour instead. Listen, as a Swiftie, I’ll be the first to admit Swifties can be intense, and they will be out in droves when she goes on tour. So, I sympathize with the brides and grooms who will have to deal with flaky guests, and various other challenges because of a concert on the same day as their nuptials. To an extent, I understand the struggle of those who want to go to the concert as well. Since Swift’s Reputation tour (which can still be seen with a Netflix subscription), the artist has released three brand new and two re-released albums, so there is a lot of new music to cover with this tour. I’d assume the set list will include all categories of Swift’s songs, and we’ll get to see a show that will include stellar cameos and Easter eggs like the “Bejeweled” music video. In short, it will be an amazing and massive concert. While this show will be incredible, especially with Swift’s track record of theatrical tours, I don’t know if it’s worth rescheduling a wedding. While the tour is causing various issues for brides, it is super, super exciting that Swift is going on tour again. The demand for her upcoming performances is so high that she just announced more dates on her North American leg, with European dates to come. On top of touring the singer has also been acting in movies, and Swift has been directing many of her own music videos. So whether you try to go to the Eras Tour, can’t go to the tour, or are getting married that day, there are lots of ways to see Swift do what she does best.
  15. Spooky season in full effect. There are a lot of genres that are struggling at the box office in 2022, but horror most definitely isn't one of them. Between Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett's Scream, Scott Derrickson's The Black Phone, and Jordan Peele's Nope, scary movies have been some of the year's biggest surprises, and that trend is continuing with Parker Finn's Smile. The film dominated its competition last weekend, and the numbers its done since this past Friday are even more impressive while going up against a pair of new releases in David O. Russell's Amsterdam and Will Speck and Josh Gordon's Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile. Check out the full weekend box office Top 10 below, and join me after for analysis! TITLE WEEKEND GROSS DOMESTIC GROSS LW THTRS 1. Smile $17,600,000 $49,894,662 1 3,659 2. Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile* $11,500,000 $11,500,000 4,350 3. Amsterdam* $6,500,000 $6,500,000 3,005 4.

Bullet Train $640,000 $102,391,618 8 918 Smile Drops Only 22 Percent Weekend-To-Weekend To Claim Its Second Box Office Victory It's typical for a new release to see its box office revenue dip between 40 and 60 percent in its second weekend compared to its first three days in theaters, but Smile can now be designated as a statistical outlier. The film was deemed a winner last Sunday when it made $22.6 million in its debut, but now it is a certified hit. The estimated $17.6 million the original horror feature has brought in registers as just a 22 percent drop weekend-to-weekend, which is, needless to say, awesome. Awesome as the results are, one could also call them predictable. That original $22.6 million made by Smile indicates a whole lot of buzz, and that buzz is backed by a solid 78 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Throw in the fact that we are now in the heart of spooky season, and you have a formula for a big second weekend score. The positive performance by Zach Cregger's Barbarian last month (not to mention its continued earnings in October) gave us a preview of movie-goers' hunger for good, original horror in the run-up to Halloween, and Parker Finn's movie has fully capitalized. On top of the money that Smile has made domestically, The Numbers says that it has also already made $40 million abroad. That brings its worldwide total to $89.9 million and guarantees that it will be considered one of the year's greatest box office stories by the time that 2022 comes to a close. This is a movie that, per Variety, only cost $17 million to make, and its already quintupled that number. Even when you subtract marketing and publicity costs, this is a huge win. Sosie Bacon in Smile Clearly Smile is playing with a hot hand, but what will be fascinating to observe is its performance in its third weekend. Clearly Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile and Amsterdam didn't steal away its core demographics (more on those two films in a minute), but there is a big movie coming up this Friday that absolutely will: David Gordon Green's Halloween Ends. The hyped conclusion to the modern Halloween trilogy is looking to capture the attention of the exact same audience as Smile, and that may result in a big fall in the numbers released next Sunday. Halloween Ends is going to be dealing with a box office handicap, as it was announced this past summer that the film is going to be a hybrid release that goes to theaters and Peacock simultaneously. Will that have any kind of impact on audiences who would potentially buy tickets for a big screen double feature with Michael Myers and Smile? We'll find out in a few days. Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile Puts Up Rather Mediocre Numbers In Its Opening Weekend Unfortunately, another pattern that has continued at the 2022 box office this weekend is seeing one particular movie dominate while everything else does modest business or worse. In the case of Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, one could argue for it being more on the "modest" side of the scale, but that's partially influenced by the fact that it at least managed to make eight figures in its opening weekend. The $11.5 million it made is good enough to rank Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile as the thirty-third biggest opening weekend of the year – sandwiched between Baltasar Kormákur's Beast and Barbarian – and while that doesn't look great, the bigger issue is the fact that the movie cost more than both of those films' budgets combined. According to the New York Times, the family movie based on the book of the same name had a budget in the neighborhood of $50 million, which means it still has quite a while to go before it will be deemed profitable. Despite Its Star-Studded Cast, Amsterdam Does Little At The Box Office And Settles For Third Place The filmmakers behind Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile are probably disappointed by the box office results, but one thing that the film can hang its hat on is the fact that it didn't do nearly as badly as Amsterdam, the only other new wide release that came out this weekend. The mystery-driven feature sports an ensemble cast that is full of popular names – including Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Rami Malek, Anya Taylor Joy, and more – but it failed to wow critics and now it's apparently failing to wow audiences. The bad kicker here is how much it cost 20th Century Studios to make Amsterdam. Bringing so many talented stars together isn't inexpensive, and Deadline says that David O. Russell was given $80 million to work with. When a film manages to only make about eight percent of its budget back in its opening weekend, it seems pretty fair to apply the word "flop." Hopefully next weekend's box office numbers are a bit rosier as a result of the final battle between Jamie Lee Curtis' Laurie Strode and the boogeyman Michael Myers. Halloween Ends arrives in theaters on Friday, and we'll have the news on its box office performance here on CinemaBlend Sunday morning.
