Jason Momoa says the Snyder Cut of Justice League is “ssssiiicccckkkkkk”

Almost two years out from the movie, one would have to assume that by this point, all but the most optimistic of fans have resigned themselves to the fact that we’re never likely going to see Zack Snyder’s original vision for Justice League with the release of the fabled ‘Snyder Cut’.

However, when you’re the King of Atlantis, it seems you’ve got enough sway to get the Snyder Cut out from under lock and key, as Jason Momoa has taken to Instagram to share a video of himself and his friend and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League director, during which he thanks Snyder for showing him his original version of the film and describing the cut as “ssssiiicccckkkkkk”.

Politics are Tearing Apart America, But Hollywood Execs Still Don’t Seem to Realize It (Column)

  • Variety
Back in July 2013, then-NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt announced a miniseries about Hillary Clinton, set to star Diane Lane and focus on her life in the wake of the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Call it cynical, but many of us gathered at the Television Critics Association press tour that day were skeptical that the project would ever actually happen. As I said then on a radio interview about NBC’s plan: “Have you not been on the Internet lately? There may be some people who might object to this.”

That was an understatement. The response to the announcement, on both sides of the political aisle, caught NBC off guard. Republicans felt a Clinton series might help her potential 2016 presidential campaign in a positive light, and threatened to keep the network out of the party’s debates cycle. Orgs like progressive-leaning watchdog Media Matters thought a series digging up old Clinton

Bombshell Trailer: Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie & Charlize Theron Take on Fox News Scandal

  • MovieWeb
"What started with a whisper, will end with a bombshell." Lionsgate released the new teaser for Bombshell today, and it is tense. Based on the real scandal, Bombshell is a revealing look inside the most powerful and controversial media empire of all time; Fox News, and the explosive story of the women who brought down the infamous man who created it.

Playing those women are Academy Award winners Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly and Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson and Academy Award nominee Margot Robbie as a fictional character named Kayla Pospicil. Rounding out the award worthy central cast is Academy Award nominee John Lithgow who is portraying the accused Roger Ailes.

Although simple, the tense trailer gives us the first look at the three women as they stand awkwardly in the elevator together. Nicole Kidman as Carlson initially looks like she wants to speak with her co-workers, but thinks better of it.

Brian K. Vaughan says Y: The Last Man TV series still on track for 2020

FX’s long gestating TV adaptation of the acclaimed comic book series Y: The Last Man suffered a setback in April when it was revealed that Michael Green and Aïda Mashaka Croal had exited the project, citing creative differences with the cable network.

Fortunately for fans, FX wasted little time in announcing Eliza Clark (The Killing) as their replacement, and now comic book creator and series executive producer Brian K. Vaughan has offered an update, confirming that the series is still on track for 2020.

“The show must go on!” states Vaughan. “I’m very pleased to say the series is in excellent hands with new showrunner Eliza Clark and her intimidating squad of all-stars. TV is goddamn hard, and if the last 17 years have taught co-creator Pia Guerra and me anything, it’s that our story is particularly challenging to adapt, so I’m very grateful to everyone who’s helped get Yorick & Co.

Ben Affleck, Ana De Armas in Talks for Erotic Thriller ‘Deep Water’
Ben Affleck and Ana De Armas are in negotiations to star in the erotic thriller “Deep Water” with Adrian Lyne directing and New Regency fully financing.

If the deals are signed, production would start in November with a release through New Regency’s deal with Fox. Zach Helm and Sam Levinson wrote the script, which is based on a 1957 novel of the same name by Patricia Highsmith. The story follows a small-town couple in a loveless marriage in which the wife is allowed to take lovers as long as she does not desert the family. However, complications arise when the husband takes credit for the unsolved murder of one of the former lovers.

New Regency’s Arnon Milchan, Garrett Basch and Steven Zaillian are producing with Entertainment 360’s Guymon Casady and Ben Forkner. Lyne set up the project at Fox 2000 in 2013 and New Regency bought control of it last year.

Adrian Lyne Returns With — Wait for It — an Erotic Thriller That Stars Ben Affleck
English filmmaker Adrian Lyne is in talks to return to directing for his first film since 2002’s Academy Award-nominated “Unfaithful.” According to Deadline, the master of the psychosexual nail-biter is looking at a November production start date for “Deep Water,” set to star Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas.

Oscar-nominated for Best Director for 1987’s erotic shocker “Fatal Attraction,” Lyne will be back in his wheelhouse for “Deep Water,” a sexy thriller adapted by Zach Helm (“Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium”) and Sam Levinson (HBO’s “Euphoria”) from a novel by psychological suspense connoisseur Patricia Highsmith.

The story centers on married couple Vic and Melinda, whose open marriage is tested by an unsolved murder that resurfaces from Melinda’s past. In Highsmith tradition, the novel concerns itself more deeply with plunging beneath the illusory veneer of picture-perfect, midcentury American life. Her works have been adapted into films classic and contemporary,

New to Streaming: ‘Inglourious Basterds,’ ‘Hail Satan?,’ ‘Be Natural,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options–not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves–each week we highlight the noteworthy titles that have recently hit platforms. Check out this week’s selections below and an archive of past round-ups here.

Apollo 11 (Todd Douglas Miller)

On July 16, 1969, Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin embarked on a historic lunar odyssey, successfully landing on the moon and then returning to Earth. Free of talking heads, reenactments, and newly-recorded narration, the new documentary Apollo 11 takes viewers on this nine-day journey, constructed from astounding, never-before-seen 65mm Panavision, 35mm, and 16mm footage, as well as audio culled from over 18,000 hours of tapes. A perhaps initially unintended result when Nasa handed over this remarkably pristine footage to director Todd Douglas Miller, his documentary is also a fascinating time capsule of this specific era. – Jordan R.

Y: The Last Man TV adaptation finds a new showrunner, on track for 2020

In April, FX Networks announced that it had decided not to move forward with its long-gestating Y: The Last Man TV adaptation “in its current form”, instead choosing to part ways with showrunners Michael Green (American Gods) and Aïda Mashaka Croal (Luke Cage) over creative differences.
