Director Paul King Has Departed Disney’s Live-Action ‘Pinocchio,’ Leaving The Future Of The Film In Doubt
Yesterday, we reported that Disney is moving forward with yet another live-action remake of a classic animated film. This time, the studio is tackling “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.” However, it doesn’t appear that the Mouse House is as much of a remake-machine as we first thought. According to a person working on the live-action “Pinocchio,” that live-action adaptation seems to have hit a major, major speed bump.

And now, Netflix seems to be doing it again for a couple of the company’s newest series.

‘Lords of Chaos’ Trailer Chronicles a Norwegian Black Metal Band’s Descent into Darkness

It might be easy to assume that a Norwegian Black Metal band could be capable of heinous acts including gruesome murders and church burnings, but it wasn't what Mayhem started out as. Jonas Åkerlund's Lords of Chaos documents the birth, rise, and fall of the band, all based on a true story (which always makes it so much better). As we wrote in our poster debut, Lords of Chaos -- written by Dennis Magnusson and Jonas Åkerlund and based on the book of the same name -- chronicles the birth of the notorious Norwegian band Mayhem, who wore corpse paint, …

‘Fyre’ Review: An Entertaining Yet Slight Overview of the Fyre Festival Debacle

On the surface, the Fyre Festival seems like a low-stakes disaster. It’s something horrible that happened to rich kids who spend too much time on Instagram, didn’t do their due diligence, and ended up chasing a fantasy to an awful time, but nobody died. Chris Smith’s documentary, Fyre, provides a solid overview of what happened and how it went so wrong. At the center of the controversy is entrepreneur/con artist Billy McFarland, whose desire to live the life of a mogul ended up dragging everybody else down. While the film glances at some interesting issues …

‘Fyre Fraud’ Review: A Glib Look at the Issues Surrounding Fyre Festival

The biggest problem with Jenner Furst and Julia Willoughby Nason’s Hulu documentary Fyre Fraud is that they seem aware of the larger issues Fyre Festival presented with regards to scams in the social media age, but they’re determined to keep everything light as if they might scare away people who just want the schadenfreude of watching rich millennials get scammed. The documentary never really reconciles that conflict, which is a shame because when Fyre Fraud gets serious, it asks some hard questions about modern advertising, social media, “Fomo” (fear of missing out), and millennial culture. It may not …

Final 2018 Oscar Nominations Predictions: ‘Roma,’ ‘Burning,’ ‘A Star Is Born’

After countless screenings, Q&A’s, red carpets, screeners, hand holding, for your consideration ads, talk show appearances and cocktail parties, between 160 and 190 contenders are going to be rewarded with Oscar nominations bright and oh, so unnecessarily early on Tuesday morning. And almost just as many who didn’t hear their name called will try to get back to sleep knowing they no longer have to starve themselves for the February telecast. Granted, this season hasn’t had the distraction of a historic presidential election or an industry-changing #MeToo movement, but have been controversies late in the game.

After the Producers Guild Awards This Weekend, ‘Ozark’ Could Be Set for Emmys Glory

The Emmys never sleep. Although television’s top awards show is more than eight months away, we start harvesting tea leaves with Saturday’s Producers Guild Awards, followed by the DGA and WGA awards in swift succession. While most of the attention naturally will go to the guilds’ film prizes and what they mean for the Oscars, these programs are (very) early bellwethers for TV as well.

While it’s nice to garner accolades from critics organizations and the HFPA, the more important notices come from the guilds: That’s where the voters are, and where most critics and HFPA members aren’t. Acknowledgement from the guilds means being celebrated by your peers — the same peers who again cast their votes come Emmy time.

That said, the Emmy season is still so nascent that it’s too early to even formulate the year’s most pressing issues. Even so, there are several shows — some new,

‘Black Monday’ Review: Showtime’s Wall Street Comedy Is a Volatile Investment

In Showtime’s half-hour comedy Black Monday, characters only stop talking to take hits of cocaine. The show could reasonably be called Cocaine, but it is instead titled after the infamously bad stock market crash of October 19, 1987. The series, from creators Jordan Cahan and David Caspe, is a countdown to that fateful day, the cause of which has remained a mystery — until now, and this is the hidden story the show purports to tell. Like Wall Street of the 80s itself, Black Monday is all about greed, presented in massively crass and obnoxious ways. It works hard — …

‘Lords of Chaos’ Trailer: Rory Culkin Totally Shreds as a Murderous Metalhead

‘Lords of Chaos’ Trailer: Rory Culkin Totally Shreds as a Murderous Metalhead
A quick glance at Jonas Åkerlund’s music video credits and one might be surprised that the guy who directed “Telephone” for Lady Gaga would make a murder thriller about angsty teenagers in a black metal band. But in the latest narrative feature from the Norwegian filmmaker, “Lords of Chaos,” which just released its first official trailer, Åkerlund stays true to his metal roots. Cutting a striking figure with his signature long black hair and leather jacket, Åkerlund’s latest film is a love letter to his youth — death metal style.

The official synopsis reads: “A teenager’s quest to launch Norwegian Black Metal in Oslo in the 1980s results in a very violent outcome. Lords of Chaos tells the true story of True Norwegian Black Metal and its most notorious practitioners — a group of young men with a flair for publicity, church-burning and murder: Mayhem.”
