Christopher Plummer never saw Kevin Spacey’s All the Money in the World scenes

All the Money in the World is now in the news for its behind the scenes story more than the subject of its story. Director Ridley Scott made the decision to reshoot scenes previously filmed by Kevin Spacey, with Christopher Plummer stepping into the role. The film is about the Getty kidnapping, during which J. Paul Getty (Plummer) refused to pay the ransom for his kidnapped grandson (Charlie Plummer, not related). Scott pulled it off and had a trailer featuring Plummer out before the end of November. All the Money in the World has now screened for press and Golden...read more

Matt Damon Sparks Discussion After Controversial Comments About Sexual Misconduct

Matt Damon Sparks Discussion After Controversial Comments About Sexual Misconduct
Matt Damon has everyone talking.

The 47-year-old actor sparked a conversation on Friday following his controversial comments on sexual misconduct during a Thursday interview with ABC News' Peter Travers.

Damon didn't hold back while giving his opinions on several of the latest sexual harassment and assault scandals, explaining that he believes "there's a spectrum of behavior... [and] there’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right? Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated, right?”

“All of that behavior needs to be confronted, but there is a continuum. And on this end of the continuum where you have rape and child molestation or whatever, you know, that’s prison. Right? And that’s what needs to happen. Ok? And then we can talk about rehabilitation and everything else," he continued. "That’s criminal behavior, and it needs to

Ridley Scott Did Not Tell Kevin Spacey He Was Being Replaced from ‘All the Money in The World’

Ridley Scott Did Not Tell Kevin Spacey He Was Being Replaced from ‘All the Money in The World’
Kevin Spacey likely learned that his performance would be omitted from “All The Money in The World” via the Internet, just like everyone else. The film’s director, Ridley Scott, told The New York Times that he did not inform the two-time Oscar winner of his recasting because the actor never called once he had been publicly accused of sexual harassment and worse. Allegations have been made against Spacey by more than 30 accusers, including 16 male staff members from the Old Vic, where Spacey served as artistic director for 11 years.

“A phone call would have been nice,” said Scott, already a Best Director Golden Globe nominee for the film. “At first I was disappointed. Then I was mad.”

The Times article also established the timeline of events that led to the $10 million decision to replace Spacey while still bringing the feature to theaters by Christmas (the original release date was December

‘Alien: Covenant’ Star Michael Fassbender Delivered Two of the Year’s Best Performances in the Same Movie

‘Alien: Covenant’ Star Michael Fassbender Delivered Two of the Year’s Best Performances in the Same Movie
It’s easy to understand why Michael Fassbender hasn’t been floated as a potential Best Actor nominee for his work in “Alien: Covenant.” For one thing, the Oscars seldom acknowledge the fact that great acting can sometimes be found in massive summer tentpoles, even ones that underwhelm at the box office. For another, it would prove difficult to honor Fassbender’s work without splitting the vote or committing some kind of category fraud, as the guy plays two different roles in the film, improbably delivering both of the most brilliant performances in any blockbuster since “The Dark Knight.”

Also, it’s worth remembering that — in the long and illustrious history of the Academy Awards — no one has ever won for playing two androids who make out with each other on a remote alien planet during the middle of a slow-motion genocide. You can google that to confirm.

Last Jedi Is Set to Break Records and Demolish the Box Office

Last Jedi Is Set to Break Records and Demolish the Box Office
For many fans, the entire year has been leading up to this very weekend, with Disney and LucasFilm's highly-anticipated Star Wars: The Last Jedi hitting theaters. The movie is shaping up to pass the current records this year for opening weekend ($174.7 million), domestic gross ($504 million) and worldwide gross ($1.26 billion), which are all currently held by another Disney hit, Beauty and the Beast. Last month, The Last Jedi box office projections put the movie at just over $200 million for its opening weekend, and now with the hype even bigger than before, we're putting The Last Jedi at $220.7 million.

While the $220.7 million mark is still more than enough to claim the top box office opening of 2017, it still falls $20.2 million short of the all-time record, $247.9 million set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens. While the full review embargo has yet to break, the Star Wars: The Last Jedi premiere reactions have been exceedingly positive,

75th Golden Globe Nominations – In An Industry Of Snubs It’s Hard To Stand Out

Award season is a world of snub, complaints, and second-guessing, but the recent announcement of The Golden Globe nominations already has people talking, and tweeting. Among the most noteworthy misses, in a year when the nominations are mostly academic, is The Big Sick and Wonder Woman, both of which got no attention at all from The Golden Globe Awards.

Of course, everyone is going to have their favorites, and with several critics groups already announcing their lists/awards, there is always something that has to be left out, but a lot of people have to be surprised by some of the nominations, especially since Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World recently had to change stars, and kicked out indie darling Greta Gerwig from a spot in the Director noms.

Historical Dramas Are Difficult to Score, but Attract Awards Attention

Historical dramas and those rooted in real-life events can be among the most challenging to score, but also yield a proportionally high number of Oscar winners. Four such live-action releases are among the most talked-about this awards season.

All the Money in the World

Music by Daniel Pemberton

For Ridley Scott’s film about the 1973 kidnapping of oil tycoon J. Paul Getty’s grandson, now completing post-production after the last-minute replacement of lead Kevin Spacey by Christopher Plummer, English composer Pemberton made a bold choice: voices of many kinds, from operatic to Italian folk singers.

“Getty sees himself as this grand figure,” Pemberton explains. “We have medieval voices, which refer back to his belief that he was descended from [Roman emperor] Hadrian; and the more grand operatic music, which was a slight reflection of Rome [where much of the film was shot] but also Getty’s own vision of self-identity.”

For the kidnappers, whose world is “grubby, rural, coarse and out in the middle of nowhere

Golden Globes: ‘All the Money in the World’ Lands Three Nominations After Whirlwind Reshoots

Golden Globes: ‘All the Money in the World’ Lands Three Nominations After Whirlwind Reshoots
Members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. really want you to know they saw “All the Money in the World” before you did.

We kid. Kind of…

The international journalists group nominated Ridley Scott’s embattled film for a whopping three prizes Monday morning. Those included a best director nom for Scott himself, who rallied his team back together for 10 days of reshoots following star Kevin Spacey’s abrupt fall from grace amid sexual assault and harassment allegations.

As Variety exclusively reported, the Sony film was screened in a rough for for the group a week ago, just four days after production wrapped for a second time with actor Christopher Plummer replacing Spacey as oil tycoon J. Paul Getty. Plummer was also nominated, for supporting actor, while Michelle Williams picked up a lead actress, drama, nomination.

Golden Globes Slammed For Shutting Out Women and Minorities in Best Director Race

Golden Globes Slammed For Shutting Out Women and Minorities in Best Director Race
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) is facing backlash over this year’s Golden Globe nominations for Best Director. The five filmmakers who earned a nomination this year are all men: Guillermo del Toro (“The Shape of Water”), Martin McDonagh (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Christopher Nolan (“Dunkirk”), Ridley Scott (“All the Money in the World”), and Steven Spielberg (“The Post”).

Considering what a strong year it was for women and minority directors like Greta Gerwig, Jordan Peele, Dee Rees, and Patty Jenkins, it’s especially unfortunate how male-dominated the race is this year. Del Toro is the only minority nominated in what many people agree should’ve been a banner year for an inclusive Best Director race.

Golden Globes Nominations: 21 Biggest Snubs and Surprises

Golden Globes Nominations: 21 Biggest Snubs and Surprises
On Monday morning, the Golden Globes reinforced the notion that Hollywood is still a boy’s club. The organization, made up of about 90 foreign journalists, seemed to go out on a limb not to nominate a single woman for best director. Not Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”). Not Patty Jenkins (“Wonder Woman”). Not Dee Rees (“Mudbound”).

Although 2017 has been called the year of the woman, the Globes managed to overlook two of the biggest female-led hits of the year: “Beauty and the Beast,” the most successful movie of 2017 so far, was snubbed in the musical/comedy category, and “Wonder Woman” was shut out for any awards. Other surprises: Jordan Peele didn’t get a nomination for writing or directing “Get Out,” although his movie did receive two nominations (for best picture and actor).

Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” a love story between a lonely woman and a monster, led all movies with seven nominations.
