Last August, Jorge R. Gutierrez, director of The Book of Life, signed on to helm the project, but it looks like Warner Bros. will now need to go back to the drawing board as the filmmaker has announced on Facebook that he has left the project:
“I would like to publicly and from the bottom of my heart thank everyone I worked with at Briksburg, Lego and Wag. These last 9 months were a rollercoaster of thrills to say the least. I met so many amazing new people and learned a ton from all these incredible artists, directors, writers, editors, producers and execs. I leave a better
Atlantis: The Lost Empire
“…in a single day and night of misfortune, the island of Atlantis disappeared into the depths of the sea.” Maybe one of the more famous mythical locations in history, Atlantis was first introduced to us by Plato in his Timaeus and Critias works.
Stewart will be the first solo male host of the Sci-Tech Awards since Richard Dreyfuss emceed the 68th ceremony in 1996. Since then, the academy tapped solo female hosts, like Helen Hunt (1997), Charlize Theron (2002) and Maggie Gyllenhaal (2007), before switching to a female-and-male duo in 2013. The past five Sci-Tech hosts have been Zoe Saldana and Chris Pine (2013), Kristen Bell and Michael B. Jordan (2014), Margot Robbie and Miles Teller (2015), Olivia Munn and Jason Segel (2016), and Leslie Mann and John Cho (2017).

The event was filled with many other A-list actors, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Lena Dunham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Segel,
Pitt offered to pay $120,000 to watch an episode of “Game of Thrones” with Emilia Clarke — but he was outbid.
Pitt bid six figures to watch a “Game of Thrones” episode with Clarke on Saturday night during a silent auction at Sean Penn’s annual gala for Haiti, held at Milk Studios in Los Angeles, California.
During the charity gala, the auctioneer announced the opportunity to watch an episode with Clarke, who was in attendance at the A-list event, along with her “Game of Thrones” co-star Kit Harington, though the cast members were seated at separate tables.
The auction to watch the episode with Clarke started at $20,000, but the race quickly escalated. At one point, the auctioneer yelled out “Is the King of the North here?!” But as it turned out, Harington had stepped out of the gala to go to the restroom.
Meanwhile, Pitt bid $80,000 to
While Caine donned the trademark robes and night cap to portray Ebenezer Scrooge, the reimagining of the Charles Dickens classic also featured Kermit as Bob Cratchit, Fozzie as Mr. Fozziewig (modified from Fezziwig), Miss Piggy as Mrs. Cratchit and Gonzo as Dickens, who hilariously narrates the story with Rizzo the Rat. Despite the recognizable names and faces, some voices of the characters would sound a little different to Muppet fans.

This week’s question: What’s the best modern show set in the ’80s? (To qualify, the show must have aired sometime 2000-present.)

Recency bias would suggest “Halt and Catch Fire,” even though its strongest season, this last one, took place in the 1990s, or “Stranger Things,” which is an extremely fun show but not an all-timer. That leaves two clear-cut favorites: “Freaks and Geeks,” Paul Feig and Judd Apatow’s ode to high school outcasts; and FX’s Cold War spy thriller “The Americans.” The former is one of the great one-season wonders, one of the best shows ever made about teenagers, and — between Feig,
Case in point: The splashiest arrival is a Noah Baumbach film, and it’s safe to say that “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)” is considerably less frightening than any of the Adam Sandler comedies that Netflix has brought to you before. On the other hand, it’s true that movies can terrify you in a
