'Harley Quinn' In "Wonderland"

Sneak Peek images of actress Margot Robbie, aka 'Harley Quinn' in "Suicide Squad", posing for "Wonderland" magazine, photographed by Gia Coppola:

"There's nothing I dislike more than being in a photo shoot where they say, 'Be yourself'", said Robbie. "That's not why I became an actress. That's what I find so funny: that you become an actor, and all of a sudden, everyone wants to know about you. But I didn't become an actor so I could show you 'me'...

"I say this about everything: when I was on 'Neighbours,' I said, 'These are the best years of my life!' 

"When I was filming 'The Wolf Of Wall Street,' I said, 'These are the best months of my life!' 

"I always think I'm having the best time ever, and that I'll never have so much fun again...

"Everyone's like, 'overnight sensation.' It's not overnight.

Vanessa Kirby's Instagram Photo Is a Huge Hint About Her Replacement on The Crown

Season two of The Crown might have hinged around high-profile moments in Queen Elizabeth II's life, like her dinner with JFK or her trip to Ghana, but it's her younger sister, Princess Margaret, who steals the show. Thanks to Vanessa Kirby's exceptional performance, the fashionable, rebellious princess ends up being the second season's most relatable (and entertaining) character. Fortunately, it looks like Netflix has found the perfect actress to replace her in seasons three and four, since there will be a bit of a time jump. Ocean's 8's Helena Bonham Carter is in talks to take over for Kirby. Netflix has yet to officially confirm the news, but it seems like a done deal thanks to Kirby's latest Instagram photo. The two actresses happily posed for the camera, and Kirby even captioned the cute shot, "Honoured @thecrownnetflix." Seeing them next to each other only further proves how

Patty Hearst biopic from James Mangold cancelled

James Mangold was set to direct a biopic of Patty Hearst, an American heiress who has kidnapped in 1974 by a domestic terror group and forced to join them, for 20th Century Fox. Mangold even casted Elle Fanning in the role last month, but now the film has been cancelled according to Heat Vision.

Twentieth Century Fox Film and its production partners have decided to cancel the studio’s planned project based on the book American Heiress,” the studio said Thursday.

The cancellation comes after Hearst herself blasted the project and the unauthorized bio by Jeremy Toobin the film was based on, saying it “romanticizes my rape and torture and calls my abduction a ‘rollicking adventure”. Toonin was also crafting a docuseries with news network CNN, a project Hearst also called out.

“I am further saddened and appalled that Fox 2000 agreed to finance and produce a movie based on Toobin

Star Trek: Discovery Season 1 Episode 10 Review: Despite Yourself

So all the rumors come home to roost with Star Trek: Discovery Season 1 Episode 10. Discovery is indeed in the Mirror Universe and Ash Tyler may very well be what the interwebs have suspected all along.

Sigh.

Don't get me wrong. I'm super stoked about adventures in the Mirror Universe and I'm absolutely tickled by how beautifully they're pushing the Alice in Wonderland allegory.

Or Alice Through the Looking Glass, as it is now.

But the entire exposition about how Tyler's wounds were assumed the result of torture but are actually evidence of the Klingons actually turning him into someone else?

Despite the shades of one of my favourite films, Gattaca, it is so contrived, I actually cringed.

I mean, even if he was surgically changed to look human, inside and out, wouldn't medical scans detect Klingon DNA?

I know that Klingon and human DNA is compatible since bi-species children are

The Forgotten: Walter Lantz & William Nolan's "Wonderland" (1931)

  • MUBI
Walt Disney lost control of his most popular character, Oswald the Rabbit, probably the low point of his life. He bounced back by starting his own company and introducing Mickey Mouse, a thinly-veiled Oswald rip-off, down to the same short pants, with added alliteration, and the rest is history.Oswald, of course, faded into obscurity without Disney's hand to guide him, but here's a later talking Oswald cartoon (Mickey introduced sound to the cartoons with Steamboat Willie in 1928, an oddly abrasive toon in which the iconic rodent spends most of his time torturing animals to produce musical sounds. Mickey, at this stage in his development, seems likely to grow up to be a serial killer.)The wonderful thing about thirties cartoons is how disturbing they are. We first encounter Mickey Oswald here getting his ass sewn up by granny and a cat and a mouse, their traditional enmity forgotten

Who is The Mysterious Cheshire Cat?

There are a few different thoughts as to the origin of the mysterious creature known as the Cheshire Cat. To many he’s the always-grinning character in Alice in Wonderland that floats about without a care in the world and is largely interested in his own self-preservation and speaking in riddles whenever possible. Yet there are a few explainable origins for the cat outside of the book and the movie adaptations that have taken place over the years. He might look creepy and be one of the least helpful creatures in the story but he does have his roots in the

The Crown Eyeing Helena Bonham Carter To Play Princess Margaret

From Hogwarts to Buckingham Palace?

Renown film star Helena Bonham Carter (Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland) is said to be nearing a deal to play Princess Margaret in The Crown, which will see her take over the role from Vanessa Kirby for seasons 3 and 4.

Netflix hasn’t released any official statement just yet, but the addition of Carter comes as part of a major recasting effort, given the show’s third season will switch gears to focus on Elizabeth II between the years of 1957 and 1964. Indeed, Helena Bonham Carter was initially linked to the part of Elizabeth, before Olivia Colman was ultimately cast as Her Royal Highness. She’ll step into the regal shoes previously worn by Emmy nominee Claire Foy, who, like Kirby, portrayed a high-ranking member of the Royal Family throughout seasons 1 and 2. Now, it’s time for new blood.

Chrissy Teigen Fights Back Against Pizzagate Conspiracy Theorists

Chrissy Teigen Fights Back Against Pizzagate Conspiracy Theorists
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend didn't hold back after a reporter linked them to a discredited sex trafficking conspiracy theory known as Pizzagate. As Today reports, Liz Crokin tweeted pictures of the couple's 1-year-old daughter Luna in several Halloween costumes over the weekend and wrote, "Chrissy Teigen's daughter dressed as a hot dog, Alice in Wonderland and a pineapple but note [pizza] emoji." The tweet, which has since been deleted, was interpreted by Teigen and others as a reference to Pizzagate—a conspiracy theory debunked by police that claimed a Washington, D.C. pizzeria served as a base for a child sex trafficking ring.

Lion King Set Photo Introduces Donald Glover as the New Simba

Lion King Set Photo Introduces Donald Glover as the New Simba
The king has returned. Jon Favreau is currently hard at work getting Disney's live-action version of The Lion King ready to go for summer 2019. Disney announced the full cast for the movie last month, which includes Donald Glover as Simba. Now, Favreau has shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the set, showing that things are moving right along on The Lion King, as Donald Glover is currently in the studio getting to work as Simba.

We know that The Lion King is going to use the same technology that Jon Favreau used for The Jungle Book to make the creatures come to life. Though they looked incredibly real, all of the animals in The Jungle Book were CGI and it looks like it'll be the same for this movie. However, the actors who voiced the characters used motion capture to provide a visual reference for the CGI characters. It's likely

Fox cancels James Mangold's Patty Hearst film

David Crow Jan 12, 2018

Following Logan, James Mangold is co-writing and directing a movie about hostage-turned-revolutionary Patty Hearst.

Ah. Just over a month since news broke that it was happening, 20th Century Fox has now pulled the plug on the Patty Hearst movie, that was to be directed by Logan's James Mangold.

In a statement from the studio, it said:

Twentieth Century Fox Film and its production partners have decided to cancel the studio’s planned project based on the book American Heiress"

No official reason was given, but there had been sizeable criticism from Hearst herself over the accuracy of the book, and its author Jeffrey Toobin. She said that the book "romanticizes my rape and torture and calls my abduction a ‘rollicking adventure'".

The 13 Most Disappointing Movies of 2016

The 13 Most Disappointing Movies of 2016
2016 was in many ways a rough year for Hollywood. An unusual number of high-profile deaths — Gene Wilder, Patty Duke, Garry Shandling, Alan Rickman, Prince, Anton Yelchin, Carrie Fisher, and Debbie Reynolds — left the industry heartbroken. The election of Donald Trump as president has terrified all of Hillary Clinton’s liberal supporters. And on the big screen, despite a record year at the U.S. box office (thanks to Disney), something felt truly stale about many of this year’s massive studio tentpoles.

With a few exceptions, like “Finding Dory,” the theme of this 2016’s blockbusters could best be summed up as: it was better last time. There’s been a long-brewing debate about the consequence of so many sequels on the long-term health of the movie business. But this year suggested that by killing original stories, Hollywood has also destroyed creativity (or at least interesting voices or points of view).

Johnny Depp To Star As Investigator of Tupac and Biggie Murders in ‘Labyrinth’

  • Indiewire
Johnny Depp will tackle the role of Russell Poole in “Labyrinth,” The Hollywood Reporter revealed Wednesday.

It was Russell Poole’s reports and theories that became the subject of the book upon which “Labyrinth” is based, Randall Sullivan’s “Labyrinth: A Detective Investigates the Murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., the Implication of Death Row Records’ Suge Knight, and the Origins of the Los Angeles Police Scandal.”

Although it was long speculated that Biggie had been somehow responsible for Shakur’s death, it was Poole who believed that Death Row CEO Suge Knight was a major factor in their rivalry.
