Oscar predictions: Top 10 frontrunners for Best Original Screenplay include ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,’ ‘Parasite,’ ‘Marriage Story’ and …
Frontrunners are already forming in the Oscar race for Best Original Screenplay, according to early combined predictions at Gold Derby. While most films in contention have not yet been released, many were recently seen by film industry insiders at the Toronto, Telluride and/ or Venice Film Festivals. We’ve confirmed most category placements with studios or campaigners, but — as awards season veterans know — such labels can change later. The whole bottom three of this list from last month — “Us,” “Queen and Slim” and “The Lighthouse” — have been replaced by a trio of film fest faves.

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

1. “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”: Quentin Tarantino‘s ode to hippie-era Tinseltown has many of his big-screen trademarks, from bare female feet and rambling speeches to spot-on vintage music cues and over-the-top violence.

Olivia Wilde Wishes ‘Booksmart’ Wasn’t Called a Female ‘Superbad,’ Reflects on Box Office

Olivia Wilde Wishes ‘Booksmart’ Wasn’t Called a Female ‘Superbad,’ Reflects on Box Office
Chances are high that when reading a review for Olivia Wilde’s acclaimed feature debut “Booksmart” a comparison was made between the director’s female-driven high school comedy and the R-rated comedy classic “Superbad.” The endless comparisons between “Booksmart” and “Superbad” were impossible to ignore, so much so that Wilde herself couldn’t escape them. In a recent interview with Yahoo Entertainment (via The Playlist), Wilde shared mixed feelings about how her film was constantly put in the shadow of another male-dominated comedy.

“I mean, hopefully, we get to a point where every female movie doesn’t have to become the female version of a male film, but I loved ‘Superbad,’” Wilde said. “I mean, in a certain sense, I’m like, we should be so lucky. I fucking love that movie. It’s amazing. But I did feel that we should stand alone. Hopefully, that’s a kind of

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in September 2019

  • Indiewire
Judging by the meager slate of new movies that Netflix is adding to its library this September, it seems like the streaming giant is saving all of its resources and energy for a go-for-broke awards season push; with all eyes on “Marriage Story,” “The Irishman,” and documentary heavyweights like “American Factory,” as well as Disney+ giving the company a world of new competition come November, this isn’t the time for Netflix to pull out all the stops. But that doesn’t mean subscribers will be completely out of new content to stream this month. “The Lord of the Rings” is nothing to sneeze at, even if Netflix is just replacing the first part of the trilogy with the last two. And the addition of Wong Kar-wai’s “The Grandmaster” will give millions of people new access to one of the most dazzling biopics of the 21st century, even if only in truncated form.

Netflix schedule: Here’s what is coming and leaving in September 2019

Netflix has confirmed that 40 new original series, movies and specials will be debuting on the streaming service in September. Leading off lineup is the first season of “The Politician” from the Emmy-winning Ryan Murphy. This drama about an ambitious politico stars Tony champ Ben Platt and Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow. Among the other freshman series one of the most intriguing is “Criminals,” an anthology set in four police stations in the UK, France, Germany and Spain.

Two limited series tell true-life stories. “Unbelievable” chronicles the efforts of two detectives to discover the truth about an alleged sexual assault of a teenage girl. And “Spy” showcases Sacha Baron Cohen as Israeli Mossad agent Eli Cohen, who went undercover in 1960s Syria. Among the new films on offer is Zach Galifianakis’ satire “Between Two Ferns: The Movie.”

‘Good Boys’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Jacob Tremblay, Keith L. Williams, Brady Noon, Molly Gordon, Midori Francis, Izaac Wang, Millie Davis, Josh Caras, Will Forte, Mariessa Portelance, Lil Rel Howery, Retta, Michaela Watkins, Christian Darrel Scott, Macie Juiles, Chance Hurstfield, Enid-Raye Adams, Alexander Calvert | Written by Lee Eisenberg, Gene Stupnitsky | Directed by Gene Stupnitsky

The trepidation of going into a cinema auditorium and seeing a bunch of prepubescent kids scream and shout obscenities and indulge in some terrible stuff is at an all-time high with Gene Stupnitsky’s Good Boys hailed as a kindergarten Superbad, whatever that means. It is quite strange that this film has been made in the first place.

Good Boys follows three 6th grade boys ditch school and embark on an epic journey while carrying accidentally stolen drugs, being hunted by teenage girls, and trying to make their way home in time for a long-awaited party…

Firstly, with the enormous success

A Conversation With Good Boys Star Jacob Tremblay Almost Made Me Want to Have Kids

  • Popsugar
Jacob Tremblay possesses the kind of natural sincerity that makes nearly everything he does endearing. Even when he's, say, cursing a blue streak while attempting to open a childproof lid on a gummy vitamin bottle containing illicit drugs. I definitely didn't expect to feel that way going into my screening of the 12-year-old's new comedy, Good Boys, but, along with his costars Keith L. Williams and Brady Noon, Tremblay managed to make me feel genuine affection for tweenage boys. (And that was before I even spoke with the young actor about the film on the phone.)

At its heart, Good Boys is a film about the endurance of true friendship regardless of differences. On the surface, though, it's a raunchy comedy, filled with more sex toys than you're probably expecting. When I got the chance to chat with Tremblay over the phone, he gleefully admitted that he loved getting to

Top 10 early-bird Oscar picks for original screenplay: ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ leads the pack for now

Top 10 early-bird Oscar picks for original screenplay: ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ leads the pack for now
Frontrunners are already forming for the original screenplay race, according to early combined 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 “Little Women” 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 adapted screenplay picks on the Gold Derby site, in order, as of Aug. 20:

1. “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”: Quentin Tarantino‘s ode to hippie-era Tinseltown has many of his big-screen trademarks, from bare female feet and rambling speeches to spot-on vintage music cues and over-the-top violence.

For Producers Rogen & Goldberg, ‘Good Boys’ Hit Their Cinematic Sweet Spot

If Good Boys sounds like a younger version of the movie Superbad, well, that’s by design. Both were produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, and when the two of them came across the Good Boys script, they knew the movie would be a perfect fit for the types of movies they’ve made in the [...]

How Good Boys is challenging cinema’s toxic masculinity

Martin Izzard on how Good Boys is challening cinema’s toxic masculinity…

August is a month in which Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw was momentarily the biggest movie in the world. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie while having very limited exposure to the Fast & Furious films, because it embraced its ridiculousness with a tongue very much planted in cheek. I thought The Rock and Jason Statham were in on the joke and that the presentations of masculinity in Hobbs & Shaw were caricatures of what we expect them to be.

But then stories started swirling around after its release that its stars have a say over how their manliness is presented. Punches are being counted and representatives making sure their clients don’t lose fights on screen. What this unfortunately did was completely reinforce the toxic masculinity I initially hoped was almost being parodied by the movie.

So this led me to ask myself,

Looking Back at James Cameron’s Aborted Spider-Man Movie

Henry Bevan looks back at what could have been with James Cameron’s Spider-Man…

James Cameron’s Spider-Man. It’s a big What If..?, up there with Kubrick’s Napoleon and Jodorowsky’s Dune. It seems like the perfect match, pairing one of Hollywood’s best action directors with one of its most action-suited characters. Just imagine what Cameron would have done with all of Spider-Man’s acrobatic flips and kicks.

Well, as most know, it almost happened. Supposedly, Cameron was setting up an adaptation after the release of True Lies, but due to legal circumstances surrounding the screen rights, he bailed. The director had convinced Carolco, the independent studio who gave him $100 million for Terminator 2: Judgement Day based on a half-page memo, to buy the film rights. He was all set to go. Then, it turns out Sony was also involved and Carolco didn’t outright own the character.

How Universal Is Reviving The R-Rated Comedy & Making ‘Good Boys’ Great At The B.O. With A $21M Opening – Sunday Update

  • Deadline
4th Update, Sunday Am writethru following Saturday Am post, w/updated chart: There isn’t a studio executive out there who would disagree: the weekend opening for Universal’s Good Boys –now at $21M this morning per Uni– is fantastic for the theatrical business. Saturday rang up $7.3M last night after Friday’s $8.3M, with $5.3M expected for today.

With comedies long-believed dead at the box office and gobbled up by streaming, here comes an R-rated raunchy one that shows the genre has a pulse. Yes, there was A Madea Family Funeral back in March that opened to $27M. But we’re talking original comedies here, and Universal can lay claim in the comedy drought that the genre is one of their core competencies. The studio owns the biggest original comedy openings of the past three years with Good Boys, Blockers ($20.55M), Night School ($27.2M) and Girls Trips ($31.2M). In

Good Boys Review

Now are we fifth graders? Or are we sixth graders?!

While that beckoning battle cry is only uttered once, its intoxicating effect can be felt at every nonsensical turn in Good Boys, an hour-and-a-half long excuse to hear preteens curse without having to prepare any sort of punishment. The unofficial, perhaps surrogate prequel to Superbad, Gene Stupnitsky’s goofball big screen debut taps into a similar plight of pubescent confusion but sets the dial back a few more years.

Don’t let that fool you. They may be younger, but they’re just as vulgar.

This hard-r-rated comedy strikes up a buddying trio of fresh-faced sixth-graders, Max (Room’s Jacob Tremblay), Lucas (Keith L. Williams) and Thor (Brady Noon). Just off the brink of elementary school and more than likely the talk, they’re prepared to take on this confusing time hand-in-hand as the Bean Bag Boys. But the bigger

Movie Review: Good Boys

The oft used saying “Boys will be boys” couldn’t be more true than it is in the raunchy, new tween comedy Good Boys. Since National Lampoon’s Animal House (1978) and Porky’s (1981) the hard-r comedy has been a right-of-passage for youths, but it’s been over five years since one has reached $100M in box-office revenue. Will this Seth Rogen-produced film be the one that reverses the trend and joins four other movies he has produced that exceeded this magical number? Good Boys puts forth its best effort by paying homage to a number of classic coming-of-age films including an opening scene reminiscent of the comedy classic American Pie (1991) in this Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) meets Superbad (2007) end-of-summer flick, but the film may find that it doesn’t have enough gas to make it to the top.

Mbti® John Hughes Characters

Before the dark teen drama Riverdale or the mystery Pretty Little Liars or high school movies like Superbad and Mean Girls, John Hughes was the one telling adolescent stories. His 1980s films are famous for actually depicting what it's like to be young and confused. Whether it's a girl whose birthday goes forgotten in Sixteen Candles or very different classmates stuck in Saturday detention in The Breakfast Club, his storytelling lives on.

Related: Mbti Of Beetlejuice Characters

While most of John Hughes' beloved movies are about teens, there are a few that are about families, like Home AloneUncle Buck, and Mr. Mom. One thing is for sure: his characters stand out from the pack and embrace individuality, quirks, and charm. Here are the Myers-Briggs® Personality Types of some of the characters from John Hughes movies.

Seth Rogen Is a Hot, Bearded Man, and We Need to Respect Him as Such

  • Popsugar
We all know and love Seth Rogen from his long list of hilarious comedies, including The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Pineapple Express, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and, my personal favorite, Superbad. While he was always good-looking, Seth has gotten even hotter recently, and we can't believe that there's an actual man who is this funny and this hot.

Seth has had a busy year, aside from gracing the cover of GQ's Summer issue and making us all foam at the mouths. He was the voice actor for Pumbaa in the remake of Disney's The Lion King and produced the highly anticipated Good Boys. And when Seth isn't in front or behind the camera, he's probably off being all types of adorable with his wife Lauren Miller, who was also in Superbad. Now that you're up-to-date on Seth's latest projects, let's show you why he's the definition of Hot Boy Summer.

‘Hobbs & Shaw’ battles Quentin Tarantino, ‘Nezha’ for international box office crown

‘Hobbs & Shaw’ battles Quentin Tarantino, ‘Nezha’ for international box office crown
The Angry Birds Movie 2 flies into Russia, China.

Universal’s Hobbs & Shaw is expected to coast past $400m at the worldwide box office this weekend, although the action saga faces a battle royal for the international crown against current champion Nezha from China, and Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood via Sony.

All three films appeal to different demographics, and all three are expected to prosper in the coming days in a rare session when Disney does not have a release that threatens to dominate the competition. There could even be a challenge from Sony’s The
