Judi Dench is in early talks to join Disney’s “Artemis Fowl” movie adaptation from director Kenneth Branagh.

Netflix Issues Cease-and-Desist Order on Unauthorized ‘Stranger Things’-Themed Bar

22 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The world is turning upside down for a “Stranger Things”-themed bar in Chicago that has been ordered by Netflix to close its doors.

“The Upside Down” pop-up in Chicago, named after the dark parallel universe from the Netflix show, launched in August and became a hit. The bar serves drinks including a syrup-flavored cocktail called “Eleven’s Eggos,” and features decor that matches the show, like the Christmas-light alphabet wall. Due to the bar’s success, the owners had planned to extend their six-week run to coincide with the premier of “Stranger Things” Season 2. However, Netflix issued an (albeit cheeky) cease-and-desist letter.

“Unless I’m living in the Upside Down, I don’t think we did a deal with you for this pop-up,” the letter reads. “You’re obviously creative types, so I’m sure you can appreciate that it’s important to us to have a say in how our fans encounter the worlds we »

18 September 2017 9:59 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For the few moviegoers who braved “mother!,” they’re likely spending the day still unpacking Darren Aronofsky‘s madhouse thriller. No matter what side of the fence you’re sitting on with regards to the film, there’s no doubt that it’s packed with ideas, and unafraid to provoke. However, what might surprise you is that before the writer/director turned his creative attention to a movie about the Biblical creation, toxic masculinity, and god knows what else, he was working on something far tamer.

Paramount Responds to Mother! Backlash: ‘Everyone Celebrates Netflix When They Tell a Story No One Wants to Tell’

23 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In the words of the prophet Beyoncé, Paramount Pictures ain’t sorry. If Mother!’s mania wasn’t for you, then … maybe there’s a sleepy showing of Tulip Fever you could slip into? The studio is standing behind Darren Aronofsky’s controversial film and its “F” CinemaScore rating. (To be fair, The Emoji Movie has a “B” rating, so maybe take this with a grain of salt.) Paramount’s worldwide president of marketing and distribution Megan Colligan released a statement addressing the critics and audiences who were disgusted that the studio would release such a gruesome movie. »

James Corden Regrets Kissing Sean Spicer at Emmys: ‘I’m Disappointed’

22 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

To say that some viewers were not pleased with former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s cameo on the Emmys Sunday evening would be an understatement. To make matters worse, a photo posted to Variety‘s Instagram account caught late night host James Corden on camera giving Spicer a peck on the cheek at the awards show, which elicited further blowback.

Corden, however, addressed the incident in his opening monologue on “The Late Late Show” Monday night, stating that he was “disappointed” in himself.

After cracking a few Donald Trump jokes, Corden went on to lambast himself. “According to some reports at the after-party, Spicer was the most popular guy in the room,” he began. “And I just wanna say, I think people are forgetting this man lied to the American people and should not be embraced. These Hollywood phonies kissing up to Spicer are disgusting, I mean, who did this, who »

Trump’s ‘Rocket Man’ Jab at Kim Jong-un Fails to Launch on Twitter: ‘Makes Us Appear Childish’

President Donald Trump spoke to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, threatening to “totally destroy” North Korea to defend the United States and its allies if necessary — but that’s not the part of Potus’ speech that has gone viral online. No, the line Twitter users latched onto was Trump’s taunt at Kim Jong-un: “Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime,” Trump said of the North Korean leader. He has called Jong-un a “rocket man” before, but this time it was in the very formal and global view of the United Nations. »

Times Square, 1971: The sleaziest cesspool in New York City is about to get sleazier. All around 42nd Street – known as "the Deuce" – the streets are full of pimps and hookers, XXX theaters and drug dealers, cops and johns and gangsters. The obscenity laws are relaxing, opening the way for the porn business to expand into the mainstream – massage parlors, private booths, sex shops. The cops let it all happen, as long as they keep getting their cut of the money. Everybody here is a tough crowd, because everybody's got a tough story. »
