Four Black Panther Promos Welcome You To Wakanda

Wakanda beckons, ladies and gentlemen, and with only four weeks left until D-day, Marvel Studios has pumped out four – count ’em, four – brand new promos for Black Panther.

On the one hand, we have the “King of Avengers” video in which Chadwick Boseman’s regal hero takes the fight to Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), while “Entourage” is all about Black Panther‘s supporting players. And make no mistake, Ryan Coogler has filled out his cast with a whole host of A-listers.

From The Last Jedi‘s Lupita Nyong’o to Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright to Angela Bassett (American Horror Story), this is a Marvel ensemble for the ages, so it’s small wonder why Black Panther is tracking for a record-breaking weekend. $80 million is said to be the target for Marvel Studios, though positive buzz and general word of mouth may push that figure toward $100 million – an impressive feat in and of itself.

John Travolta Responds to Reports His 'Gotti' Film Was Pulled Just Days Before Its Release: 'Fake News'

John Travolta Responds to Reports His 'Gotti' Film Was Pulled Just Days Before Its Release: 'Fake News'
John Travolta is calling out the nature of the reports that his John Gotti biopic, in which he plays the notorious mobster, will no longer be released just 10 days before it was set to come out on Dec. 15.

Movie studio Lionsgate sold the film Gotti back to the production company Emmett/Furla/Oasis, according to multiple reports on Tuesday, thus scrapping its planned release later this month. On Wednesday, Travolta called the reports that his movie was abruptly pulled "grossly wrong."

“Unfortunately, the reports were speculation bordering on fake news,” Travolta tells Deadline. “Lionsgate was planning on a minimal release, and I did an investigation into people who might have the interest and financial wherewithal to better release it. [Producer] Ed [Walson] is a fan of mine and of the Gotti story and really wanted to see the movie. I invited his group, they saw it and bought it. That is the simple explanation for this."

Lionsgate Reportedly Dumped Its ‘Gotti’ Biopic Last Minute Because of Release Plan Squabbles

Lionsgate Reportedly Dumped Its ‘Gotti’ Biopic Last Minute Because of Release Plan Squabbles
After being dropped by distributor Lionsgate just ten days before its set release, the seemingly ill-fated John Travolta-starring John Gotti biopic might get a new lease on life, at least if its producers’ big gamble pays off. A new report from Deadline holds that the film left Lionsgate because of release plan squabbles — it was set to be released by Lionsgate Premiere (which specializes in specialty and limited releases), and its producers were eager to take it to a wide release. The outlet reports that “there was a buy-back clause in the distribution agreement, so the producers exercised it. It was never a matter of Lionsgate dumping the film.”

Still, that’s a hell of a last minute change to make, especially when the film’s release date and plan have been locked for months now. Deadline adds that an outside investor has back the film “so that it

John Travolta’s ‘Gotti’ Looking for a New Home

John Travolta’s ‘Gotti’ Looking for a New Home
Producers of John Travolta’s “Gotti” have bought back the movie from Lionsgate, which had planned to release the mob biopic on Dec. 15 through its Lionsgate Premiere specialty division.

Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films is expected to begin meeting with other distributors about “Gotti.” The company, which produced the film with Highland Film Group and Fiore Films, exercised a provision in its deal allowing it to buy back the movie from Lionsgate in the hope of getting “Gotti” a wide theatrical release. The Lionsgate Premiere release would have been day-and-date for theatrical, VOD and streaming.

Gotti” is directed by “Entourage” star Kevin Connolly from a script by Lem Dobbs and Leo Rossi. “Gotti” also stars Travolta’s wife Kelly Prestor, their daughter Ella Bleu Travolta, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Stacy Keach, Chris Mulkey, Lydia Hull and Spencer Lofranco.

John Travolta has given an update on this story to Deadline, where he's pushed back against stories of the film's sudden removal from Lionsgate's schedule. As it turns out, Travolta wasn't happy with the limited release that Lionsgate was planning for the movie. The film's producers felt the same, and activated a buy-back clause in the original deal. The plan is now to give the movie a much wider release in the new year than it otherwise would have had. A new release date will be announced soon.

Looks like this month is about to get a whole lot less merry for one jettisoned project, as the Tracking Board reports that Lionsgate has dropped its John Travolta-starring mob drama “Gotti” just ten days before its scheduled release.

CBS Cancels Wisdom of the Crowd Following Allegations Against Jeremy Piven

After only 13 episodes, Wisdom of the Crowd's debut season has been cut short. Granted, the CBS drama - which centers on a tech genius (Jeremy Piven) who creates a crowd-sourcing hub to help solve crime following the death of his daughter - has never been a top performer for the network. Performance aside, though, there are other, more disturbing reasons it might have been canceled. Like so many other men in Hollywood, a collection of troubling sexual harassment allegations against Piven have surfaced. Before announcing the end of Wisdom of the Crowd, CBS had already been "looking into" the actor in the wake of the allegations, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Actress Ariane Bellamar accused the former leading man of groping her on the set of HBO's Entourage and was soon followed by other women alleging they endured similar behavior from the actor. Piven denies the allegations, calling them "absolutely false and completely fabricated.

CBS Cancels Jeremy Piven’s New TV Show After Sexual Harassment Allegations

Launching a brand new network TV show not based on an existing property is a difficult prospect at the best of times, but when the star of the series has just been accused of multiple acts of sexual assault, it’s probably time to throw in the towel. And that’s exactly what CBS has done with new Jeremy Piven vehicle Wisdom of the Crowd, which is about a Silicon Tech valley genius who uses crowdsourcing to solve crimes (apparently, it’s terrible).

Cancelling the show after just 13 episodes follows weeks of accusations by women who claim Piven held them down and rubbed his genitals on them, non-consensually groped them and more. One of his victims, Longmire actress Cassidy Freeman, summed up the current mood towards the former Entourage star in an Instagram post that reads as follows:

“I know what you did and attempted to do to me when I was far too young.
