Due to Gary Oldman’s prior involvement with Ben Kaplan’s Winston Churchill project, as well as the actor and his team supposedly having access to three versions of Caplan’s script, the lawsuit alleges that there’s been “false designation of origin” under federal trademark law, as well as “breach of implied contract, unfair business practices and interference with contract.” Along with Oldman, the lawsuit names Oldman’s agent and manager, along with NBCUniversal, Working Title and Focus Features, as defendants. Oddly enough, Darkest Hour writer Anthony McCarten is not named.
Of course, Tom Holkenborg is no stranger to scoring major motion pictures. In the last half decade alone, his music credits have included Mad Max: Fury Road, Deadpool, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Tomb Raider, Terminator: Dark Fate, Alita: Battle Angel and Sonic the Hedgehog. Still, the fact that he now gets to leave his stamp on a franchise he’s been passionate about for a long time surely makes Godzilla vs. Kong a standout entry on his resume.
From this photo, it looks like Dwayne Johnson is ready to rough up some thieves, but I’m guessing during filming he won’t be dawning the face shield and mask. Back in March, Dwayne Johnson gave us a true first look at Red Notice by sharing a photo of himself during production. This time, however, he’s looking more formal, wearing a tuxedo and holding what might be a shield.
The pandemic put countless productions in a tight spot this year, forcing many to roll with the punches and look for a bright side. Fantastic Beasts 3 looks to be no exception to that, as it sounds like director David Yates, Eddie Redmayne, and the rest of the crew tried to adapt the best they could under the circumstances.
Fans are already hoping to see this attraction or something like it make its way stateside. And the good news is that there’s a good chance we will. While it’s anybody’s guess if we could see this exact attraction appear at Disneyland or Walt Disney World, the work on designing the technology has now been done, making it that much cheaper to recreate it. There’s a benefit to having a contract with a company with a nearly infinite pocketbook. It’s fitting considering the first human animatronics were designed by Imagineering as part of the 1964 World’s Fair. Disney got to design the technology but other people paid for it.
Oh, so that was the issue the whole time! Man, Dwayne Johnson really could have saved himself a lot of trouble if he’d just read the instruction manual. In all seriousness though, we’ve come to these kinds of humorous comments from Ryan Reynolds, especially when they concern work associates. So frankly, I’d have been surprised if Reynolds hadn’t said anything publicly about it, although I’m assuming that he’d bring up the matter the next time he saw Johnson in person, assuming that hasn’t already happened.

Star Wars is one of the most popular film franchises of all time, with entire generations brought up on the galaxy far, far away. It’s hard to believe it, but the nine-film Skywalker Saga ended nearly a year ago, with J.J. Abrams’ The Rise of Skywalker arriving in theaters to wrap up the story. Episode IX gave Daisy Ridley’s Rey a ton of power, and newly released concept art has her taking on a large group of Stormtroopers at once.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who passed away September 18, did not want President Donald Trump to choose her successor for the Supreme Court. “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” Justice Ginsburg said, as dictated by her granddaughter, a week before her death.
Of course, Trump—who not only wants to push forward a nominee “without delay” but also said he’s “entitled” to a third term—doesn’t believe the feminist trailblazer would say such a thing. “I don’t know that she said that, or was that written out by Adam Schiff, Schumer and Pelosi,” Trump said on Fox & Friends September 21, per USA Today.
“I would be more inclined to the second,” he continued. “OK, that came out of the wind and sounds so beautiful, but that sounds like a Schumer deal or maybe a Pelosi or Shifty Schiff. So that came out of the wind. Maybe she did, or maybe she didn’t. The bottom line is we won the election, we have an obligation to do what’s right and act as quickly as possible.”
Less than 24 hours following Ginsburg’s passing, Trump tweeted his intention to move forward with his nominee, despite the GOP’s refusal to confirm President Barack Obama’s replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016, a full eight months before the election.
“We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who so proudly elected us,” he wrote on September 19. “The most important of which has long been considered to be the selection of the United States Supreme Court Justices. We have this obligation, without delay!”
“We want to pay respect,” he said, per USA Today. “It looks like we will have probably services on Thursday or Friday…We should wait until the services are over for Justice Ginsburg.”
He knows what to do if he really wants to pay his respects.
Admitting she likes it when “things get steamy,” E.L. James was candid in an interview with ET about her place in the literary world and how she’s only one of many voices writing in her genre. She talked a little bit about Fifty Shades’ trajectory on both page and screen, noting that while the average person might find Christian Grey and Ana Steele’s behavior to be quite risqué, those genre readers should be very used to their sexual dynamic. She noted:
Per the announcement, made by Lonsdale’s agent Olivier Loiseau and reported by THR, the actor passed away at his home in Paris. While Michael Lonsdale is arguably best known for his work in Moonraker, his resume included some other titles that might ring some bells with a modern audience. Films such as The Name of The Rose, Ronin, and Munich were among those most memorable, which is only a capper to a career in stage and screen that saw Lonsdale entertaining the world since he first appeared on stage in 1955, making his way into a film career with 1956’s It Happened in Aden.
