Rihanna Addresses The Batman Poison Ivy Rumors, Admits Her Obsession for the Villain

  • MovieWeb
If Poison Ivy will be one of the villains set to face off with the Dark Knight in The Batman, actress and pop star Rihanna says she wants to play the part. Recently, Rihanna had conjured up rumors about her casting in the project when she posted a photo of her leather boots on Instagram, referring to the Batmobile in the caption.

The rumored Rihanna casting then generated so much buzz the singer was asked directly about it by Entertainment Tonight, and while Rihanna says she has not been cast in the movie, she would love to audition for Poison Ivy if given the opportunity.

"That [post] has to do a lot with Batman [because] I have separate obsessions. I have [a] bigger obsession with Poison Ivy, I'm just being honest. And yeah, I dyed my hair red because of Uma Thurman in [Batman and Robin]. You know what, [Warner Bros.] didn't call me yet. But if they did,

Oscar predictions: Top 10 frontrunners for Best Supporting Actor include Brad Pitt, Tom Hanks and …
Frontrunners are already forming in the Oscar race for Best Supporting Actor, according to early predictions at Gold Derby. While most films in contention have not yet been released, many were recently seen by film critics and industry insiders at the Toronto, Telluride and Venice Film Festivals. We’ve confirmed most category placements with studios or campaigners, but some decisions aren’t yet final. Meantime, Gold Derby lists Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”) as well as Christian Bale and Matt Damon (“Ford v. Ferrari”) in both lead and supporting categories in our prediction center.

Here are the current top 10 supporting actor picks according to racetrack odds based upon our users’ predictions as of Sept. 17:

1. Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”): Pitt doesn’t have a designated category yet, so he appears both as a lead and supporting candidate on the Gold Derby site.

Same ol’ Oscar category song and dance: Which actor takes the lead wheel and who rides shotgun in supporting?

Same ol’ Oscar category song and dance: Which actor takes the lead wheel and who rides shotgun in supporting?
When Quentin Tarantino‘s nostalgic hippie-era fable “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” opened in late July, there was much speculation about whether its male stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a fading TV Western star and Brad Pitt as his loyal body double would compete as co-leads when it came to awards categories or whether Pitt would be slotted in the supporting actor category. After all, his character Cliff Booth is basically defines the loyal sidekick archetype — not that there’s anything wrong with that.

For now on Gold Derby, Pitt’s name can be found in both lists in the predictions center. Currently, he is ranked No. 16 among lead actors for “Hollywood.” Complicating matters, however, is that he is also ensconced at No. 25 for his space thriller “Ad Astra.” The best news for Pitt, however, is that he’s sitting pretty atop the supporting actor list. While he has an

Kevin Smith Thinks Robert Pattinson’s A Good Choice For Batman

The news of Robert Pattinson becoming the next actor to play Batman has been making waves in the comic book community for months now. Recently, successful filmmaker and celebrated aficionado of all things comic book-related, Kevin Smith waded into the casting choice on his Fatman Beyond podcast. In response to a comment by his co-host Marc Bernardin about meeting Pattinson, Smith affirmed his support for the teen heartthrob turned indie-darling, saying:

“I like him as an actor and look forward to this movie The Lighthouse in a big and bad way,” Smith said on the podcast. “I think he’s a good choice. I know he doesn’t look the part, I guess traditionally speaking because he seems like a lanky kid.”

While Pattinson’s lack of muscle was a big reason for some Batman fans being disappointed by his casting, an even bigger reservation on the part of many

10 Biggest Winners and Losers at the Toronto Film Festival

  • Variety
The Toronto Film Festival used to be an all-night event. Agents and producers would unveil their latest masterpieces, and then wait for the bids to come rolling in through sunrise. But the movie business has changed dramatically in the last five years. Many studios, burnt by costly acquisitions, are exercising more restraint at film festivals, opting to produce their indies internally.

And Toronto’s standing has changed too, as Telluride and Venice have eclipsed its position as the first stop on the awards season trail. Instead, rather than being a festival of discoveries, Toronto has become a destination to binge watch the latest fall movies that are about to explode. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, and many movies got a boost from screening in Canada. But it does mean that if you’re premiering a movie at the festival, it’s much harder to get noticed.

Oscars 2020: Best Costume Design Predictions
Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is the early Oscar frontrunner for Best Costume Design, with Arianne Phillips creating contrasting iconic looks (circa 1969) for Leonardo DiCaprio’s has-been actor, Brad Pitt’s rugged stunt man, and Margot Robbie’s angelic Sharon Tate. It’s turtlenecks and leather for DiCaprio, Hawaiian shirt and denim for Pitt, and yellow hot pants and go-go boots for Robbie, among other vintage looks.

Meanwhile, three-time Oscar-winning costume designer Sandy Powell is back for Martin Scorsese’s true life gangster epic, “The Irishman,” creating different period threads for Robert De Niro’s mob hitman, Frank Sheeran, Al Pacino’s labor leader, Jimmy Hoffa, and Joe Pesci’s crime boss, Russell Bufalino, conveying conspicuous or inconspicuous status and power.

For Todd Phillips’ “Joker,” two-time Oscar-winning costume designer Mark Bridges re-imagines the legendary Batman nemesis (Joaquin Phoenix) as a failed stand-up comic trapped between the ’70s and ’80s.

Daniel Radcliffe Talks Surgically Attached Guns on His Hands in ‘Guns Akimbo’ (Exclusive Video)
Daniel Radcliffe dropped by TheWrap’s Studio at the Toronto Film Festival to talk about playing someone who had guns surgically attached to his hands in Jason Lei Howden’s “Guns Akimbo.”

“I was immediately intrigued by that,” Radcliffe tells TheWrap’s Beatrice Verhoeven. “When I got to about page 10 of the script and there was this scene where my character Miles with his new gun attachment hands has to work out and try to go to the bathroom. That was the moment that I was like ‘You’re fully exploring the premise, I’m in!'”

“It was both insane and crazy and violent but also incredibly funny and just exciting and really fun to read,” added Radcliffe.

‘The Lighthouse’ Left Robert Pattinson Wanting to Go Clubbing (Exclusive Video)
Working on Robert Eggers’ slow-boiling horror film “The Lighthouse” left Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson in two very different states of mind. The actors told TheWrap at the Toronto Film Festival that while Dafoe was able to easily slip in and out of the role, Pattinson soon found himself as pent-up as his character.

“I was charged up at the end of every day, to be honest,” Pattinson told TheWrap’s Beatrice Verhoeven. “By the end of the day you’re keeping yourself…so wound up the whole time that by the end I wanted to go out clubbing. But there’s nowhere to go!”

The Lighthouse Review

Robert Eggers' The Lighthouse is a challenging but enthralling character study that's as forlorn as its lonely island.

At its height, German Expressionism was celebrated (and in some circles derided) for its severe unreality. During a silent film era dominated by adventure or romance, here was a style bathed in madness and psychological perversions as stark as its shadows. Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse isn’t quite pure expressionism—the young auteur is too fascinated by naturalism for that—but it may as well be with its pitiless gray skies, often desolate black and white shores, and two stormy performances by Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson that are so touched by madness that the cracks in their unblinking stares and crusty whiskers cast an unreality all their own.

Shot in the same aspect ratio as the likes of Fritz Lang’s M, The Lighthouse is a descent

Toronto: Willem Dafoe Talks His Bushy Beard Look in 'Motherless Brooklyn' and 'The Lighthouse'

Toronto: Willem Dafoe Talks His Bushy Beard Look in 'Motherless Brooklyn' and 'The Lighthouse'
Willem Dafoe is at the Toronto International Film Festival with two movies, The Lighthouse and Motherless Brooklyn — both of which feature the actor sporting a bushy beard.

That's not a coincidence, Dafoe told a press conference for Edward Norton's Motherless Brooklyn, a 1950s-set crime drama about a private detective with Tourette's syndrome. The actor recalled already growing a beard to play a salty lighthouse keeper in Robert Eggers's The Lighthouse, where he appeared opposite Robert Pattinson.

And at the same time, Norton, at long last knowing his movie was a go, approached Dafoe to also have him join his ...

2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Director (Updated: September 10)

2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Director (Updated: September 10)
One of the big questions about the 2020 Oscars is whether or not there will be a split between the winners of Best Picture and Best Director, as we’ve seen in three of the last four years. Before the academy reintroduced the preferential ballot for Best Picture in 2010, such divides were fairly rare. Now, they are the rule rather than the exception at the Academy Awards. (Scroll down for the most up-to-date 2020 Oscars predictions for Best Director.)

Why is this?

Unlike every other Oscar category, which are decided by a popular vote, the winner of the Best Picture award is determined by a weighted ballot. Voters rank their choices from first to last. If one nominee garners more than 50% of the first place vote, it automatically wins. If, however, no nominee can meet that threshold, the film with the fewest first place votes gets eliminated, with its ballot getting reapportioned to the second place choice.

Joker Vs. the Batman Movie with Joaquin Phoenix & Robert Pattinson Will Never Happen

  • MovieWeb
DC and Warner Bros. are branching out from the Dceu with standalone movies about Batman and his arch-nemesis the Joker, leading to fan speculation that the two might share their own movie universe. However, it has now been confirmed The Batman and Joker will not be connected in any way, with each taking place in their own separate timelines.

Speaking with Variety, Joker director Todd Phillips was asked directly about the potential of the two movies crossing over., "No, definitely not." Phillips responded. "Oddly, in the [United States], comic books are our Shakespeare it seems, and you can do many many versions of Hamlet," the director adds, suggesting many more Jokers will come in the future.

Inspired by the works of Martin Scorsese, Joker will be more of a crime thriller than a typical superhero movie. The movie presents a new origin story for the legendary Batman villain, showing how a failed

Tiff 2019: Meryl Streep and Joaquin Phoenix, Paying Tribute to Late Brother River, Launch Oscar Bids

September’s Toronto International Film Festival has long been a launching pad for Oscar contenders, and its coveted People’s Choice award often presages the Best Picture Oscar winner. “Green Book” last year was no exception.

So it was inevitable that Tiff would jump-start the awards season with its own Awards Gala. This year’s first installment gave out two acting awards, to Joaquin Phoenix, star of DC’s “Batman” spin-off “Joker”, which surprisingly won the Golden Lion in Venice, and Oscar perennial Meryl Streep (21 nominations). Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas, Her costars in Steven Soderbergh’s “The Laundromat”, came onstage to remind us that Streep breaks the record for the most nominations of all time every time she gets a nod — because it’s a record she set herself.
