fuck it, I never liked the idea of jumping through hoops to amuse someone else's whim, the whole thing is about as narcissistic as it gets, it's like something Cartman would think up. H@rry can only view the world with himself at the center, just look at how he writes, he is unable to describe anything without a personal reference to himself, his own personal experience always seems to be at the center of his reviews of other people's work. he creates this event to throw a big birthday party for himself, makes people do more than just beg for a chance to come, and acts all magnanimous as if he is doing us all a big favor. fucking jerry

This isn't new. From the get-go Harry has explained that his philosophy of film review is that the reviewer's personal life affects how a film is perceived so that's why he includes those details in his reviews. I think he said it every time someone jumped on his shit about his Godzilla reviews. I'm not really defending it nor do I think he's a great font of cinema criticism but he has been advertising it since he flipped the site on in 98.

the mistake people make is in actually thinking of harry as a movie critic rather than a glorified blogger who shills for any film he can in exchange for pwesents.

The Book Of Henry Poster Reveals The Secret Plans For Colin Trevorrow’ Jurassic World Follow-up
Peter Sciretta wrote:Colin Trevorrow’s The Book Of Henry is a movie I’ve been curious about for some time. It’s an interesting choice to helm this small film after directing one of the biggest box office successes of all time. But the truth is, we don’t really know much about The Book of Henry. All we’ve been told is that its a drama about a single mother raising a child genius. What is the Jurassic World director cooking up at Focus Features? Hit the jump to see The Book of Henry poster, which gives us a first look at the plans.

THR:
Matthew McConaughey Reveals How His Late Father Shaped Lead Role in 'Gold'
Jenna Marotta wrote:“There was parts of him that I observed and parts of him — his dealings with some people doing some shady deals — that were very Kenny Wells,” said McConaughey, who stars as Wells and made the decision to gain 45 pounds for the role. “Like taking me for a ride to go buy a hot Rolex watch the day before Christmas — when we were supposed to be getting stocking stuffers — from a guy named Chicago John, in a white van parked behind an abandoned shopping mall with downed power lines between the Dumpsters, [that my dad] paid $3,000 for because he thought it was worth $22,000. And it was probably worth $200. But it didn’t matter. It was the deal. It was, 'How much fun is this?'"

Deadline:
Universal Hatches Hiroshima A-Bomb Tale ‘Shockwave’; Cary Fukunaga To Direct, Hossein Amini To Write
Mike Fleming Jr wrote:EXCLUSIVE: Universal Pictures is negotiating with Cary Fukunaga to direct and for Hossein Amini to write a film based on the Stephen Walker non-fiction book Shockwave: Countdown to Hiroshima. The film will be produced by Working Title Films’ Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Liza Chasin.

The book told a story of events that led up to a Monday morning in August 1945 when a five-ton bomb—dubbed Little Boy by its creators—was dropped from an American plane onto the Japanese city of Hiroshima, soon to be followed by another that devastated Nagasaki. The first blast left one-third of its 300,000 people dead and the city incinerated, and the dawn of the Atomic Age was launched. The book told the stories that led up to the fateful day, from the scientists who worked secretly on the Manhattan Project, some out of fear the Nazis would unleash one first if they didn’t, to President Truman White House that believed the Japanese would never give up and that countless casualties would be the result in a prolonged war, to the Japanese who witnessed the devastation and unimaginable horrors.

Fukunaga helmed Beasts of No Nation and Amini wrote Drive and co-wrote the Tomas Alfredson-directed Snowman with Michael Fassbender, as well as the upcoming AMC series McMafia. Fukunaga and Amini together scripted the TNT adaptation of the Caleb Carr novel The Alienist. Fukunaga is hard at work on Maniac, the Netflix series that will reunite Superbad‘s Jonah Hill and Emma Stone.

Executive Vice President of Production Erik Baiers will oversee the project for Universal. Fukunaga is represented by WME, Anonymous Content and Lichter, Grossman. Amini is represented by WME and Curtis Brown Group in the U.K.

i predict Donald Trump will criticize the film for inaccurately telling the story of how the country of Hiroshima attacked Texas by strapping 3 million atomic bombs onto the backs of illegal immigrants smuggled into the country by Hillary Clinton, and even worse, completely failing to mention his election win, which was the hugest margin of victory of any election in the past 500 years.

Re: MARIAN

Postby TheButcher on Sun Feb 26, 2017 5:27 am

BRIE LARSON, DAISY RIDLEY, & ALICIA VIKANDER CIRCLING AS THE HOTTEST SPEC IN TOWN GEARS UP FOR THE WEEKEND!
Now on everyone’s radar, Pete Barry’s red-hot spec MARIAN has fast become the talk of the town as A-List producers and stars fight for territories.

Out from Paradigm’s David Boxerbaum, the project, which is being pitched as a grounded female-driven reimagining of the legend of Robin Hood, now has multiple producers requesting territories, as we can continue to exclusively track the moves. As previously reported, Alicia Vikander was the first star to begin to circle, and now we’re hearing both Daisy Ridley and Brie Larson are in the mix for select territories with packages that include producers Simon Kinberg, Steven Spielberg, Jerry Bruckheimer, Tripp Vinson, Doug Belgrad, Shawn Levy and Micheal De Luca amongst others. Each is eyeing this project as the start of a new female-driven franchise for their home studio, and as we all know, star-driven packages make everything more that much quicker.

Vikander, Ridley and Larson, who are no strangers to the Hollywood tentpole with the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot (Vikander), the series of Star Wars films (Ridley) and the upcoming Avengers and Captain Marvel films (Larson), have all become some of the fastest-rising and most recognizable faces coming out of Hollywood, and as they begin to circle, you know studios are already looking ahead to the franchise potential. Factor in the built-in IP of Robin Hood (even as a reimagining) and the growing expectation on foreign box office, and even though only one of these women will land the lead role of Marian, any studio will still come out a winner.

Having hit the town last night as a top secret spec (sans title page or logline), the project created a frenzy of buzz as execs fought for a chance to read, and talk of those who had read it spread across the early Oscar parties of the week. Once revealed to be a female-driven franchise starter, the talk quickly turned to action, as the fight to get the script intensified.

Boxerbaum, who has now sold seven spec scripts in as many weeks, may have just introduced us to one of the biggest bidding wars of 2017, as only 24 hours after the script started going out, and as the territories at every single studio begin to be fought over, we can only sit and wait to see which star wins the role, which producer wins the territory, and which studio wins their next franchise.

Set to be produced by Rock Shaink and his Romark Entertainment, who also previously teamed up with Paradigm to sell the spec script Matriarch to Paramount, Marian is represented by David Boxerbaum of Paradigm and Andrea Dimity of Pannon Entertainment.

Keep it here as we continue to track this into the night…

‘Eastern Promises’ Sequel Set to Film in Spring

I fucking love Eastern Promises. To me it was like a real-life superhero movie - except instead of a cape and mask, Viggo kicked ass with his schlong hanging out (easily the most uncomfortable fight scene I've ever seen). I hope this happens with all available cast and crew returning.

EDIT - I just noticed that this article came out in January.....if this was already posted, I apologize in advance.

If it's well-written, it could be a hilarious take on the current immigration climate.

If only that elephant had a good lawyer. Voldemoo would've gotten him off. The court would've enjoined the shit out of that electrocution scheme.
