Ben Affleck Says Harvey Weinstein Allegations Make Him ‘Sick’
Updated: Ben Affleck is the latest celebrity to condemn Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

In a statement posted on both Facebook and Twitter, Affleck said the news about Weinstein has left him “saddened and angry” and that the “additional allegations of assault … made me sick.” The New Yorker published an expose early Tuesday morning detailing instances where Weinstein explicitly raped women by forcibly performing or receiving oral sex, and forcing vaginal sex.

“This is completely unacceptable, and I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn’t happen to others,” Affleck said. “We need to do better at protecting our sisters, friends, co-workers, and daughters. We must support those who come forward, condemn this type of behavior when we see it, and help ensure there are more women in positions of power.”

Ronin Starring Robert DeNiro Available on Blu-ray August 29th from Arrow Video

Ronin Starring Robert DeNiro and directed by John Frankenheimer will be available from Arrow Academy on August 28th.

Ronin: Noun, historical. A samurai who no longer serves a daimyo, or feudal lord.

From director John Frankenheimer (Reindeer Games, The Manchurian Candidate) comes Ronin, a pulse-pounding, action-packed crime thriller featuring an all-star cast headlined by Robert De Niro (Taxi Driver, Heat) and Jean Reno (Léon: The Professional).

On a rain-swept night in Paris, an international crack team of professional thieves assembles, summoned by a shady crime syndicate fronted by the enigmatic Deirdre (Natascha McElhone, The Devil’s Own). Their mission: to steal a heavily guarded briefcase from armed mobsters, its contents undisclosed. But what begins as a routine heist soon spirals into chaos, with the group beset by a series of double-crosses and constantly shifting allegiances, and it falls to world-weary former CIA strategist Sam (De Niro) and laconic Frenchman

Danny Trejo is making a plea for the safe return of his longtime friend Donal Logue's daughter, Jade Logue, who has been missing for the past week. The video, which Logue shared on his social media channels, shows the Machete, star known for his bad-ass film roles, pleading with the camera to help bring back the missing teen. Logue and Trejo have been friends for many years, first starring in Reindeer Games together back in 2000. "This is Danny Trejo. Whoever has Jade, I want to plead with you. Please, just drop her off. Anywhere," says the actor. "She'll find her way home and it's got a lot bigger than you thought and I know you don't want to get the people that you're dealing...

Matt Damon vs. Ben Affleck: Film Critics Are Forced to Pick a Favorite — IndieWire Critics Survey

Matt Damon vs. Ben Affleck: Film Critics Are Forced to Pick a Favorite — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

From “School Ties” to “Live By Night” and this weekend’s “The Great Wall,” Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have each — for better and worse — left a considerable and ever-increasing footprint in the cultural landscape. But while the world is wide enough for both of them, our hearts are not. And so, we forced our panel of critics to choose: Ben Affleck or Matt Damon?

There can be only one.

This is a toughie. In terms of looks, both Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s faces remind me of between forty and fifty of my least-favorite classmates during

Ben Affleck’s Batman: The already troubled history of The Batman

Luke Owen looks at the already troubled history of Ben Affleck’s The Batman

It was news that concerned fans of the faltering Dceu when it was confirmed that Ben Affleck will no longer direct The Batman, which is still supposed to be released next year. This bad news about The Batman follows rumours that Justice League is a mess, as is Wonder Woman, and The Flash is getting a page-one re-write following the departure of its second director.

“There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions,” Affleck said in a statement. “Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give. It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require. Together with the studio, I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film.

Disney Eyeing Will Smith For Live-Action Dumbo Flick

  • LRM Online
I know what you’re thinking. You love the idea of Dumbo being remade into a live-action movie, but were worried by its serious lack of Will Smith, right? I know. I’m a mind reader.

In all seriousness, though, Disney’s recent trend in remaking their animated classics for the big screen is one that both elates and frustrates. On one end, it’s hard not to roll your eyes at the laziness inherent in the whole deal. Their properties are so well known that these films are bound to make some kind of profit, not matter how bad. On the other hand, the House of Mouse has already proven with films like Cinderella and The Jungle Book that a lazy idea does not necessarily mean lazy execution. So long as they put great talent both in front of and behind the camera, there’s a good chance they

Damon Expects Bourne Series To Go The James Bond Route In Future, Talks Recasting Role

  • LRM Online
I'll never forget seeing the first trailer for The Bourne Identity. It was 2001 and, up until that point, Damon had acquitted himself quite nicely as a dramatic actor-writer in high-minded productions like Good Will Hunting, Saving Private Ryan, The Talented Mr. Ripley, and The Legend Of Bagger Vance. He and pal Ben Affleck crossed over into the A-list at the same time, thanks to their work as writers/actors in 1996's Good Will Hunting, but they seemingly split after that. Damon went serious, and Affleck went big. While Damon worked on the kinds of films mentioned above, Affleck ran around making bombastic blockbusters like Armageddon, Reindeer Games, and Pearl Harbor.

So the idea, as a follower of films, was that- of the two of them- Damon was more of the thoughtful artiste, while Affleck was more the celebrity movie star.

That's what made the debut trailer for The Bourne Identity so attention-grabbing.

Antony Gibbs, Editor of ‘Dune,’ ‘Fiddler on the Roof,’ Dies at 90

Antony Gibbs, a British-born film editor who cut dozens of pictures, including such ’60s classics as “Tom Jones” as well as “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Rollerball,” “Dune” and “Ronin,” died February 26. He was 90.

The Guild of British Film and Television Editors reported his death on Facebook.

Gibbs was nominated for four of the American Cinema Editors’ Eddie Awards, including for “Tom Jones” in 1964 and “Fiddler on the Roof” in 1972. He won Eddies in 1998 for his work on John Frankenheimer’s TNT miniseries “George Wallace,” starring Gary Sinise, and in 2002 for his editing of Mark Rydell’s TNT TV movie “James Dean,” starring James Franco (a film for which he also picked up an Emmy nomination). Also in 2002, he received an Ace career achievement award.

The Ace said of Gibbs in 2002: “With ‘Reindeer Games’ he continued his successful collaboration with John Frankenheimer, but his friend director Mark Rydell allowed Tony to

Have Yourself A Movie Little Christmas: Krampus And More!

Despite its rampaging monster approach to the holiday season and the imposing, sort-of terrifying giant horned goat-man who provides its title, Krampus isn’t, at heart, an anti-Christmas picture-- it has at least one bloodshot eye pitched toward seasonal classic status. The movie’s story is centered on a family at war with itself—semi-sophisticated suburbanites Adam Scott and Toni Collette and their kids hosting a clan of boorish, right-wing Walmart-warrior relatives headed up by David Koechner and Alison Tolman— who finds itself besieged by the impish and deadly forces of Krampus, the flip-side of holiday cheer, Darth Vader to Santa’s Obi-wan. When the only child left in the family who still clings to his belief in Santa Claus has the last vestiges of Christmas spirit (here so defined as the will to make sacrifices for the good of others) derided out of him, he tears up his last

19 actors who threw their own movies under the bus: "The film was terrible. But the house it built is terrific"

19 actors who threw their own movies under the bus:
Some films are bad. In fact some films are so bad, even the actors promoting them can't deny just how bad they are, as these cinematic turncoats prove...

Gotham season 2: James Frain cast as new villain

Agent Carter alum James Frain has signed up for the role of Theo Galavan, billionaire brother to the villainous Tigress...

So far, we don't know a huge amount about Gotham season 2. We've been told that Cameron Monaghan's Jerome might be back, and that Nicholas D'Agosto's Harvey Dent will have a larger role to play this time around. Beyond that, not much has been revealed.

Today, though, another tiny piece of the jigsaw has slotted into place, in the form of a new character.

James Frain - who played Leet Brannis with creepy aplomb in Agent Carter - has jumped ships to Gotham in order to play Theo Galavan. Deadline's report has described Theo as "the savior the city has been waiting for — he is sexy, heroic, and lovingly devoted to his sister Tabitha."

Speaking of Tabitha Galavan, Theo's sister will go on to become the villainous Tigress (a

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2 episode 20 review: Scars

  • Den of Geek
Ahead of its two part season finale, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. wraps up its Age Of Ultron connections and reshuffles the deck…

This review contains spoilers for this episode and Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

2.20 Scars

If there’s one truth that Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. has proved in recent weeks, it’s that at some stage, we’ll have to stop referring to its stronger episodes as rare highlights and instead admit that Marvel flagship show has actually become an all-round entertaining show in its own right.

This revelation occurred to me while watching Scars, the sort-of penultimate season 2 episode before next week’s two-part finale. As with any show, there are a few niggles in the episode (Ward’s reappearance seemed a little shoehorned-in during an episode that had stronger focuses elsewhere) but there was so much to like, which indicates that season 2 as a whole could well go down as

Does the 2003 Daredevil movie really suck?

Ahead of the new Netflix Daredevil show, Luke Owen asks the burning question – does the 2003 Daredevil movie really suck?

In the early 2000s, comic book movies were riding high on a wave of popularity. After seemingly being killed off by the likes of Batman & Robin and Steel, comic book movies made a huge comeback with critically-praised and fan-adored movies like Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Bryan Singer’s X-Men. When X-Men hit it big at the box office in 2000 and Spider-Man followed suit in 2002, movie studios started to snap up as many titles as they possibly could to piggyback off their success. So many of their characters were sold off in fact that not only did it save Marvel Comics from bankruptcy, but there were reports of upwards of 40 movies based on Marvel characters in some stage of development between 2000 and 2002. One of those projects was Daredevil.

Gone Girl, 2014.

Directed by David Fincher.

Starring Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Carrie Coon, Kim Dickens, David Clennon, Patrick Fugit, Lisa Banes, Missi Pyle, and Emily Ratajkowski.

Synopsis:

With his wife’s disappearance having become the focus of an intense media circus, a man sees the spotlight turned on him when it’s suspected that he may not be innocent.

From the incredible Fight Club back in 1999 and The Social Network a few years back to the middling Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Fincher has proven that he knows what he is doing when it comes to taking the novel source material and putting it up on the big screen.
