Brad Pitt and Adam Sandler Have an Unlikely Movie Bromance

Brad Pitt and Adam Sandler Have an Unlikely Movie Bromance
Brad Pitt and Adam Sandler (“Uncut Gems”) sat down for a chat for “Variety Studio: Actors on Actors.” For more, click here.

As has become a tradition for Variety’s Actors on Actors conversations, two superstars realize they have even more in common than celebrity. The careers of Brad Pitt and Adam Sandler ran on parallel tracks after they arrived in Hollywood in the late 1980s, emerging among the last generation of A-list superstars in the ’90s through wildly different genres of film. Sandler made hits of raucous comedies like “Happy Gilmore” and “The Waterboy,” while Pitt burnished a character-actor reputation with turns in “12 Monkeys” and “Fight Club.” This past year, Pitt was as melancholic as he’s ever been in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” while Sandler was characteristically outsized in the New York freakout “Uncut Gems.” And yet, during a lengthy exchange, they keep stumbling over what unites them as artists.

Oscar predictions: Top 10 frontrunners for Best Supporting Actor include Brad Pitt, Tom Hanks and …
Frontrunners are already forming in the Oscar race for Best Supporting Actor, according to early predictions at Gold Derby. While most films in contention have not yet been released, many were recently seen by film critics and industry insiders at the Toronto, Telluride and Venice Film Festivals. We’ve confirmed most category placements with studios or campaigners, but some decisions aren’t yet final. Meantime, Gold Derby lists Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”) as well as Christian Bale and Matt Damon (“Ford v. Ferrari”) in both lead and supporting categories in our prediction center.

Here are the current top 10 supporting actor picks according to racetrack odds based upon our users’ predictions as of Sept. 17:

1. Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”): Pitt doesn’t have a designated category yet, so he appears both as a lead and supporting candidate on the Gold Derby site.

Don’t laugh! 45% say it’s about time that Joaquin Phoenix wins an Oscar for ‘Joker’ [Poll Results]

Don’t laugh! 45% say it’s about time that Joaquin Phoenix wins an Oscar for ‘Joker’ [Poll Results]
Even before “Joker” took its bow before the crowd at the Venice film festival on Saturday and earned an eight-minute standing ovation, Gold Derby-ites had already chosen its star Joaquin Phoenix as the most overdue lead actor who is likely to show up on the 2020 Oscar ballot in a poll.

Jack Nicholson cackled and leered his way through his role as the Caped Crusader’ arch-nemesis in Tim Burton’s 1989 “Batman” while Heath Ledger brought a quiet damaged-goods menace to the Joker in Chris Nolan’s 2008 “The Dark Knight” and won a posthumous supporting Oscar for his efforts. Both Jared Leto in 2016’s “Suicide Squad” and Cesar Romero on the campy ’60s TV series also gave the Clown Prince of Gotham City a spin.

But Phoenix and director Todd Phillips go the origins story route and get to the root of Arthur Fleck’s personality crisis that eventually builds up quite a body count.

‘Volition’ Review: Dir Tony Dean Smith [Frightfest 2019]

Volition review: Prepare to get your mind scrambled in intriguing, multi-layered sci-fi Volition.

Volition Movie

James (Adrian Glynn McMorran) is a young man with clairvoyant abilities. He makes his living making petty bets and occasionally helping out the local crime contingent. After being drafted in to help on a new job, James accidentally stumbles across the sequence of events that will lead to his death. James, with help from new friend Angela (Magda Apanowicz), must try to piece together the riddle of his life as he tries to alter his future.

‘They say when you die, your whole life flashes before your eyes. If only it were that simple.’ These are the opening words to Volition, words that themselves reflect the film as it isn’t as simple as it first sounds. Much like Looper and Twelve Monkeys, this is a film that has more to it than meets the eye.

Top 10 early-bird Best Supporting Actor Oscar predictions: Brad Pitt (‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’) is No. 1 for now
Frontrunners are already forming for the Oscar Best Supporting Actor race, according to early predictions at Gold Derby. While most films in contention have not yet been released, enough teaser trailers are out there, ranging from “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” and “The Irishman” to “Joker” and “Ford v Ferrari” to provide some sense of what at least feels like a worthy contender. We’ve confirmed category placements with studios or campaigners, but — as awards season veterans know — such labels can change later. And once the fall film fests commence, the standings will likely rapidly shift.

Here are the current top 10 supporting actor picks on the Gold Derby site, in order, as of Aug. 13:

Damien Chazelle's Babylon Could Star Emma Stone... and Brad Pitt

Joseph Baxter Jul 16, 2019

Emma Stone could headline La La Land director Damien Chazelle’s new movie, Babylon.

Babylon, the developing would-be film from Oscar-winning La La Land director Damien Chazelle, is already making plenty of industry waves as he currently considers would-be studios for the project. Moreover, the project’s value has just increased significantly with the latest report, which indicates that the film could facilitate a reunion between the director and the co-star of his Oscar-earning effort in Emma Stone. Additionally, a subsequent update reveals that Brad Pitt is also in the mix.

With La La Land distributor Lionsgate reportedly a front-runner for Chazelle’s next written/directorial turn, Babylon, it appears that Emma Stone – whose performance in the former earned a Best Lead Actress Oscar win in 2017 – is circling the starring role in the new film, leading what will become a large ensemble of high-profile names, according to Deadline.

Valerian Director Luc Besson Accused of Sexual Assault by 9 Women

Valerian Director Luc Besson Accused of Sexual Assault by 9 Women
This time last year, the news was bombarded with men being accused of sexual harassment across the entire entertainment field. As more and more men came under fire, the accusations began to slow down, and it has been fairly quiet on that front, here, twelve months later. That is, until today. Acclaimed director Luc Besson, known for his sci-fi classics The Fifth Element, Valerian and Twelve Monkeys has been accused of sexual assault by five more women.

Four women had already come forward with complaints about Besson earlier in the year. This brings the total number of women to nine. The new allegations come from one of the director's former assistants. A theater producer has also filed a complaint, along with a former EuropaCorp employee, and two students who studied at Besson's studio complex Cit&#233 du Cin&#233ma. Most of the women are going unnamed this time.
