Cutest Celeb Sisters, You Say? It Must Be Dakota and Elle Fanning!
Is there an application to become the third Fanning sister? If so, we're applying Asap.

The actresses have also been working the red carpet together since they were toddlers, so it's no wonder they have the art of posing with each other down to a science. If you don't think that they're one of the cutest (and most fashionable) celebrity sisters out there, just check out the gallery for all of their sweetest moments together.

Woody Allen Says He’s ‘Done Everything the #MeToo Movement Would Love to Achieve’
Woody Allen again defended his support of the #MeToo movement and said in a new interview promoting his film “A Rainy Day in New York” that he’s done everything the movement hopes to achieve.

The question came in response to whether he regretted a statement he made in 2018, saying that he should be the “poster boy” for the #MeToo movement due to his long career working with actresses.

“No, not at all. I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses, not one of them has ever complained about me; not a single complaint. I’ve employed women in the top capacity for years and we’ve always paid them exactly the equal of men,” Allen told France 24. “I’ve done everything the #MeToo movement would love to achieve.”

Disney’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil tracking soft opening weekend

2019 has already been a record breaking year for The Walt Disney Company, with Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame dethroning Avatar to become the biggest movie of all time and one of five of the studio’s releases to pass the $1 billion mark – including two of its animated remakes in Aladdin and The Lion King.

Disney does have one other Fairy Tale incoming this year in the Angelina Jolie-headlined Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, but it seems the sequel to 2014’s live-action Sleeping Beauty might struggle to repeat that kind of success, with long-range tracking from Box Office Pro estimating an opening weekend of just $37 million.

The first Maleficent opened to $69 million domestically in 2014 and went on to earn $241 million in North America and $758 million worldwide. However, if the tracking proves accurate, Mistress of Evil could end up going the way of Disney’s last live-action Alice Through the Looking Glass and

‘A Rainy Day in New York’ First Reactions: Woody Allen’s Timothée Chalamet Film Surfaces Abroad

‘A Rainy Day in New York’ First Reactions: Woody Allen’s Timothée Chalamet Film Surfaces Abroad
Reviews are beginning to trickle in for Woody Allen’s most recently completed film, “A Rainy Day in New York,” which is headed for theaters in a handful of European countries, including Greece, the Netherlands, and Poland. While the film was originally slated to open in the U.S. from Amazon Studios as part of their four-picture production pact with the disgraced auteur, Amazon dropped the film in the wake of increased attention paid to Allen’s sexual assault allegations, brought upon him by his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow, dating back to 1992. Allen is currently suing Amazon to the tune of $68 million.

The 83-year-old director/writer’s 49th film and first since 2017’s “Wonder Wheel” — released by Amazon before the studio dumped Allen — “A Rainy Day in New York” stars Timothée Chalamet as the unfortunately-monikered Gatsby Welles, a student at Yardley College torn between his journalist girlfriend Ashleigh (Elle Fanning

‘The Perfect Candidate’ Film Review: A Saudi Woman Finds Her Voice in Piercing Political Tale
As someone with a side gig on the programming team of an Lgbt film festival, I’ve noticed that, while the coming-out drama is often tired and clichéd coming from American filmmakers, it can be thrilling when one is produced a part of the world where an honest conversation about queer lives is in its early stages.

It’s not a put-down, then, when I say that Saudi Arabia’s “The Perfect Candidate” reminds me of a cycle of Jane Fonda films from the 1970s and 80s — notably “Coming Home,” “The China Syndrome” and “9 to 5” — where she plays women who fight back against their understanding of the world and discover their own voices in the process. And Jane never had to do it while wearing a niqab.

Film Review: Woody Allen’s ‘A Rainy Day In New York’
Two films ago, with “Café Society,” Woody Allen opened Cannes. Last time out, with 2017’s “Wonder Wheel,” he closed the New York Film Festival. His latest film, the first casualty of the squealing-brakes reversal when Amazon Studios pulled out of their four-picture deal with the scandal-buffeted director, premiered a month ago in one Eastern European territory prior to a spotty regional rollout and an opening slot at France’s upcoming Deauville Festival of American Film. With the greatest of respect to Deauville, not to mention the nation of Poland, the herky-jerk release of “A Rainy Day In New York” would seem like a step down. Until you watch it and realize it may be significantly more generous than the film merits.

Despite featuring some of the best actors of their respective generations, “A Rainy Day in New York” feels like a film born of profound creative exhaustion. It is a
