‘The Deuce’ Recap: Too Close for Comfort
A review of this week’s The Deuce, “You Only Get One,” coming up just as soon as this hat makes me look like Joan Collins

A very familiar face returns to the Hi-Hat in “You Only Get One,” as Darlene — or Donna, as she goes by once again — stops by the bar to ask for Abby’s help in becoming a nurse despite her criminal record. Abby comes to Donna’s meeting with the appeals board, eloquently arguing that knowing her “made me realize that people are surprising, and

His first film, “Policeman” follows anti-terrorist agents and the young radicals they clash with. His second, “The Kindergarten Teacher”—remade in English with Maggie Gyllenhaal in the titular role—traces the life of a poetry-obsessed elementary school teacher who finds deranged hope in an unlikely prodigy.

Julie Delpy is opening up about her own experience with pay disparity.

While attending the Zurich Film Festival, the filmmaker and actress spoke about being paid reportedly less than costar Ethan Hawke on almost all of the films in the beloved Before trilogy.

“As a woman, you know you’re paid less than a man as a writer, as a director, as an actress,” Delpy, 49, said during an interview with Variety, claiming that she was only paid a fraction of what Hawke, 48, made for 1995’s Before Sunrise and the film’s 2004 sequel Before Sunset.

Tessa Thompson, Lupita Nyong'o and More Eyed for Catwoman in The Batman?

  • MovieWeb
Casting is starting to heat up for The Batman and we may have narrowed things down on the Catwoman front just a bit. A handful of stars are said to be on the shortlist for the surely coveted role, and this shortlist contains several Marvel heroes. Lupita Nyong'o (Black Panther), Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok) and Alexandra Shipp (Dark Phoenix) are all said to be in the running for the part, amongst several others, who would star alongside Robert Pattinson's Caped Crusader.

According to a new report, writer/director Matt Reeves is narrowing in on his Catwoman. Other contenders for the part include Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Beauty and the Beast) and Logan Browning (Dear White People). This list is interesting for several reasons. For one, we've got two McU stars in the form of Tessa Thompson, who plays Valkyrie, and Lupita Nyong'o, who plays Nakia. Catwoman would surely be a multi-film commitment,

Wesley Snipes Finally Talks About His Scrapped 1990s Black Panther Movie
Long before Black Panther became a pop culture phenomenon, thanks to Marvel's 2018 box office smash, Wesley Snipes wanted to adapt the Marvel Comics character for the big screen. The man who went on to play Blade was actively developing a movie adaptation in the 90s, which came to light last year. Now, Snipes has opened up a bit about what he would have done.

Wesley Snipes is currently promoting his latest movie, Dolemite Is My Name. During a recent interview, he was asked about what it meant to him to play Blade at a time before superhero movies were all the rage in Hollywood. That was when Snipes decided to remind us that he played the Daywalker because he couldn't play T'Challa. Here's what he had to say.

"I had the rights to Black Panther maybe four or five years before the Blade project came around. When Blade came around,

Maggie Gyllenhaal Joined the Fight Against Climate Change Because of Her 13-Year-Old Daughter
Maggie Gyllenhaal kicked off the 57th Annual New York Film Festival with a Negroni in hand.

“Who doesn’t love a Negroni?” the actress, who attended the festival as a guest of Campari, asked People on Friday night.

Gyllenhaal’s husband Peter Sarsgaard joined her for the evening — which included the premiere of Netflix’s The Irishman — but she admitted their date nights usually skew a little more low-key.

“This is super typical,” Gyllenhaal joked of their glam night out. “We do hair and makeup for an hour-and-a-half. But at the same time, it is lovely to come see a movie by Martin Scorsese,

‘The Irishman’ Takes Bows At New York Film Festival World Premiere – Update

  • Deadline
‘The Irishman’ Takes Bows At New York Film Festival World Premiere – Update
Updated at 12:15Am Pt with reactions and detail. In The Irishman, mobbed-up characters in need of protection talk about needing “bodies” – shorthand slang for bodyguards – to watch their backs.

Plenty of bodies patrolled Friday’s after-party for director Martin Scorsese’s Netflix release, which had a high-energy world premiere at the New York Film Festival. The inner sanctum at Tavern on the Green, the festival’s annual party venue in Central Park, held cast members including Al Pacino, Robert De Niro and Bobby Cannavale. Entrances were so tightly controlled that even legit VIPs were on the outside looking in and people in the room were holding their phones up to get snapshots of whoever was a few feet in front of them. The crush was such that Netflix content chief Ted Sarandos, upon managing to wriggle free, looked back and joked to Noah Baumbach, “I’d better watch my wallet!”

Leonardo DiCaprio, also looking for a way out of the crush, pulled girlfriend Camila Morrone behind him through the restaurant’s kitchen toward a back exit, entourage in tow. Earlier in the evening, DiCaprio, whose re-teaming with Scorsese, Killers of the Flower Moon, is due to start production soon, let out a “whoop” when his frequent collaborator was introduced at Alice Tully Hall. He even made like a fan and snapped a photo of the director with his phone.

The Irishman, a historic film occasion for several reasons, had a way of turning even jaded industry types and New York City mandarins into ebullient fans. While some naysayers could be heard quailing about the 209-minute running time and contemplative (read: borderline ponderous) tone, the prevailing reaction was that of a warm welcome to a major artistic achievement. As my Deadline colleague Pete Hammond wrote Friday, the film has landed on the Oscar map in a big way after its first day in the public eye, and the party’s energy reflected it. The crowd – studded with notables like Spike Lee, John Turturro, Kirsten Dunst, Jeff Garlin and Maggie Gyllenhaal – kept things going until the wee hours.

Spencer Klein, director of theatrical distribution at Netflix, said he was already having fruitful conversations with exhibitors as Netflix sets about booking the November 1 theatrical release. Because it will hit the streaming service on November 27 (about three times faster than typical studio releases), larger circuits like AMC and Regal won’t play it. Still Klein said even if it racks up fewer than 3,000 runs, it has been well-received and has generated a good number of bookings.

John Vanco, Gm of New York’s IFC Center, is one exhibitor who will play The Irishman, as well as Netflix’s Marriage Story. “I’m not sure about the running time, but we’ll have it on multiple screens,” he said. “Once people see the reaction to it tonight and start reading about it, the reviews and publicity will draw people.”

Previously: Scorsese began his introduction of The Irishman at its world premiere Friday night by noting that his previous narrative film to premiere at the New York Film Festival was Mean Streets in 1973.

“It’s extraordinary to have come full circle,” he said. Later, while introducing the cast, he said, “Everybody’s here from Mean Streets, it’s amazing!” Scorsese noted the long gestational period for the film. “Finally found the people who would back it, and that was Netflix,” he said.

Strikingly, no direct mention was made of the fact that a streaming feature was opening the festival — something still unheard of in Cannes and controversial elsewhere.

Earlier Friday, the film drew upbeat initial reactions from the press at pre-premiere screenings, which started drawing lines at dawn (Los Angeles screenings have been held in tandem with the festival). While embargoes kept a lid on full reviews, critics described an absorbing and deeply felt epic, filled with trademark Scorsese touches. Anticipation has built for a decade for the adaptation of I Heard You Paint Houses, Charles Brandt’s book about a hitman linked to (but never criminally charged in) the death of Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa.

The film reunites Scorsese with Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci for the first time since Casino in 1995. Al Pacino, who plays Hoffa, is making his debut in a Scorsese production.

Eric Kohn, chief critic and executive editor at Deadline sister site IndieWire, tweeted that the film resembles “a greatest hits album from a master of the medium. Yes, that’s a positive.” K. Austin Collins of Vanity Fair declared The Irishman “good. I laughed a lot.” He added that its sensibility is distinct from that of GoodFellas, a film that is an obvious comparison given the parallel involvement of Scorsese, De Niro and Pesci. “This is ultimately a movie about the mortality of everyone in it,” he wrote.

Building on a banner 2018, when films like Roma and The Ballad of Buster Scruggs put it at the center of the Oscar conversation, Netflix is committing significant resources to redefining the film release model. In a press conference Friday for The Irishman, Scorsese called the production “an interesting hybrid” that challenged the creative team to discover “how you balance between what a film is and what is viewed at home and in a theater or both. We’re in an extraordinary time of change.”

Jonah Hill Asking $10M for The Batman, More Than Double Robert Pattinson's Payday?

Jonah Hill Asking $10M for The Batman, More Than Double Robert Pattinson's Payday?
Jonah Hill may very well suit up as an iconic DC villain to take on Robert Pattinson's Caped Crusader in The Batman, but Warner Bros. is going to have to pay up to make it happen. News surfaced recently that Hill is being eyed as a villain, either Penguin or Riddler, in the movie. Oddly, the role hasn't been decided on yet. Whoever it ends up being, the Oscar-nominee is said to be asking for $10 million, which would be more than double what Pattinson is getting.

Reporter Justin Kroll, who broke the initial story, took to Twitter to discuss certain details about the situation not contained in the story. In a since-deleted tweet, Kroll says Jonah Hill has had the offer for over a month and that money has been a bargaining point, in addition to not being able to settle on which specific character he would be playing.

‘True Blood’ Alum Jim Parrack Joins Fox’s ‘9-1-1: Lone Star’
The “9-1-1” family is growing: “True Blood” alum Jim Parrack has joined the cast of the upcoming spinoff “9-1-1: Lone Star,” which is led by Rob Lowe and Liv Tyler.

Created and executive produced by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, the show stars Rob Lowe “as a sophisticated New York fireman who, along with his adult son, re-locates to Austin and must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in his own life.”

Parrack will play Judd Ryder, a lifelong Texas firefighter marred by tragedy. Ryder is short on talk, long on action and generally suspicious of outsiders, especially newcomer Captain Owen Strand (Lowe), who transfers from an NYC firehouse. Judd is married to 9-1-1 call center operator Grace Ryder (actress Tba).

‘The Deuce’ Review: Season 3 Ends a Magnificent Story Only Television Could Tell

‘The Deuce’ Review: Season 3 Ends a Magnificent Story Only Television Could Tell
World-building is a topic that tends to come up with science-fiction sagas or fantasy epics, but “The Deuce” is one of the most impressive examples in recent memory. Not only did the HBO drama immediately immerse audiences in a historical facsimile of 42nd Street, Manhattan, with XXX theaters and denizens of the night aplenty, but creators David Simon and George Pelecanos, alongside their producing partner Nina Noble and a top-notch crew lead by production designer Scott Dougan, replicated the so-called Deuce’s transformation over three separate time periods: first in 1971, then in the high-end porn days of 1977, and finally in the turbulent ’80s, specifically 1985, as the neighborhood is about to be transformed.

In terms of sheer artistic value, these touches can’t be praised highly enough. “The Deuce” isn’t breaking the budget, compared to other Home Box Office hits, but it’s a stunning, transportive experience each and every episode.
