Monopoly Movie Will Reunite Kevin Hart with Ride Along Director

Monopoly Movie Will Reunite Kevin Hart with Ride Along Director
The Monopoly movie has new life, thanks to Kevin Hart. Paramount Pictures and Hasbro are moving forward with the long-gestating big screen adaptation of the very popular board game and they've tapped Hart to star in the lead role. Should the project actually move forward in its current form, Hart will reunite with director Tim Story, who he worked with on both Ride Along movies. They've proven to be a financially viable duo in the past, making this a tantalizing package deal for the studio.

According to a new report, Both Kevin Hart and Tim Story are in final negotiations with Paramount and Hasbro, who are producing Monopoly through their Allspark Pictures production company. Should the deal close, it will give the project a fresh start and perhaps its best shot at actually going in front of cameras. Development on the movie has been going on for the better part of a decade,

John Mathieson (‘Mary Queen of Scots’ cinematographer) reveals how he shot a period epic on a tight budget [Exclusive Video Interview]

John Mathieson (‘Mary Queen of Scots’ cinematographer) reveals how he shot a period epic on a tight budget [Exclusive Video Interview]
Cinematographer John Mathieson had to “hit the ground running” with “Mary Queen of Scots.” After taking over at the last minute for Seamus McGarvey, Mathieson had to conceive of how to shoot a historical epic on a modest $25 million budget. Watch our exclusive video interview with Mathieson above.

See Saoirse Ronan Interview: ‘Mary Queen of Scots’

Directed by Josie Rourke, this Focus Features release centers on the rivalry between Mary Stuart (Saoirse Ronan) of Scotland and Queen Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie) of England. Though $25 million is certainly nothing to scoff at when it comes to making a movie, it gets stretched pretty thin “when you have to have two countries going to war against each other,” Mathieson says.

No stranger to gigantic productions, Mathieson knew he would have to “address things as they came along.” He explains, “You go to your producers and director and say, we need to go big this day.

Let's Celebrate the 18th Birthday of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake's Iconic Denim Look

Let's Celebrate the 18th Birthday of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake's Iconic Denim Look
Before we begin, let's take a moment of silence to reflect and remember those pop culture moments that came before us. Jump in a time capsule or take a Throwback Tuesday and look back at one year in particular in the early 2000s: 2001. We survived Y2K, so why not go all out one year later? That momentous year, Hilary Duff became the most relatable teen when Lizzie McGuire premiered, Russell Crowe won an Oscar for Gladiator, Shrek came out and made us question talking donkeys around the world and last but not least, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake debuted their iconic denim-on-denim-on-denim-on-denim outfits to the world. 18 years ago today,...

2019 BAFTA nominations preview: What do the British Academy Awards mean for Oscars?

Nominations for the 72nd annual BAFTA Awards will be revealed on Jan. 9. That is five days before the deadline for Oscar voters to weigh in with their choices for nominations. The BAFTAs will be handed out in London on Feb. 10. This is two days before Oscar voters begin final voting. The 91st annual Academy Awards take place on Sunday, February 24.

The British Academy of Film and Television Academy has approximately 8,000 voting members as does the academy. The Brits began voting for their nominations for on Dec. 14. They had until Jan. 2 to complete their ballots online. Historically, about two-thirds of the contenders here also reap Oscar bids.

Since the BAFTAs moved up in 2000 to take place before the Oscars, these kudos have foreseen eight of the 17 Best Picture Oscar winners. Last year, the BAFTAs went with the home-grown “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” over “The Shape of Water.”

The Golden Globe champs don’t match with the Best Picture Oscar as often as you might think

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association anointed “Green Book” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” as the two best films of the year at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards. The former’s Best Comedy/Musical Film victory was predicted, but the latter’s upset was a stunner, as “Bohemian Rhapsody” was in fifth place in our Best Drama Film odds. So does that mean they’re the two Oscar favorites now? Not so fast.

Since the Globes has two film categories, it has double the chances of presaging the eventual Best Picture Oscar winner. And in its 75-year history, one of its drama or comedy/musical champs has gone on to win the Oscar 50 times, which is about two-thirds of the time.

eBuying Comics: Week 10

In 1866 David Livingston set out to find the source of The Nile. In 1924 George Mallory set out to conquer Everest. In 1936 Professor Jones fought of Nazis in a mission to find the Arc of The Covenant. Now in 2019 maybe, just maybe I’ll get my hands on my own Holy Grail. I am of course talking about Incredible Hulk #181. The debut issue of Wolverine! The best there is at what he does. Before I get into prices and all that stuff I want to talk a bit about how Wolverine came to be.

In 1974 Incredible Hulk writer Len Wein was looking to pit the green goliath against a new foe. Upon creating this new character he knew two things. Firstly he wanted him to be Canadian to increase sales north of the border. Secondly he wanted him to be a mutant, so potentially he could be used in future X-Men books.

7 Things You Probably Missed in the Avengers: Endgame Trailer

7 Things You Probably Missed in the Avengers: Endgame Trailer
After a long wait, the first trailer for Avengers: Endgame has been released. The biggest highlight of the trailer had to be the revelation of the movie's title. Outside of the title, there were still a number of other highlights throughout the course of the trailer to keep fans on the edges of their seats, including Tony seemingly saying goodbye to Pepper Potts, Captain America's response to the "snap," the revelation of Hawkeye as Ronin, and the return of Ant-Man.

Behind these big moments, however, there were quite a number of small details that not everyone picked up on. Some of these moments were minor details revealing how particular characters are holding up, while others were actual callbacks to previous movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With this in mind, here are 7 details you may have missed in the Avengers 4 trailer.

‘Mary, Queen of Scots’ Film Review: Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie Make Worthy, Regal Adversaries

‘Mary, Queen of Scots’ Film Review: Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie Make Worthy, Regal Adversaries
Period pieces have always been a bit bittersweet for me: Stunning costumes aside, the films rarely offer something to which a woman or a person of color can connect. Historical tales often cast women as bitter and evil, or soft and in need of rescuing, and they also erase people of color completely from existence.

Contrary to what far too many filmmakers seem to believe, people of color didn’t just drop from the sky in the past few decades. We have been here all along; we’ve fought in wars, built cities, have been part of royal courts, and lived in lands as peasants, soldiers and laypeople all over the world. And women have always been a spectrum of personalities, opinions and lifestyles, muted only for the comfort of the male gaze.

“Mary, Queen of Scots” acknowledges both the struggles of women and the fact that people of color

Composer Hans Zimmer on exploring how we treat women (‘Widows’) and the Lgbtq community (‘Believer’) [Exclusive Video Interview]

Composer Hans Zimmer on exploring how we treat women (‘Widows’) and the Lgbtq community (‘Believer’) [Exclusive Video Interview]
Hans Zimmer has “a strange history” with “Widows.” Early in his career he worked for composer Stanley Myers, including on the 1983 BBC miniseries that would inspire the 2018 film. “I remember thinking at the time this was a revolutionary bit of storytelling,” he recalls. It concerned “the sort of casual brutality women have to endure on a daily basis.” He felt the series could “change the way we treat women,” so when Steve McQueen approached him about scoring this reimagining, he leapt at the opportunity because “things had not gotten better.” Watch our exclusive video interview above.

‘Master and Commander’ Turns 15: James D’Arcy Was Almost an ‘Accomplice’ to Russell Crowe’s Death

  • The Wrap
Though it wasn’t the blockbuster success Fox hoped for, “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World” — which celebrates its 15th anniversary on Wednesday — is still fondly remembered by those who worked on it, including James D’Arcy, who spoke with TheWrap about his first experience making a big-budget Hollywood film.

D’Arcy recalled he wished Russell Crowe hadn’t risked killing himself for the sake of his craft.

The “Broadchurch” star discussed how the crew spent 10 days at sea filming aboard a faithful replica of a 19th century naval ship. For one scene, D’Arcy and Crowe had to climb up to the crow’s nest for a helicopter shot and were given safety harnesses for climbing up the rigging.

D’Arcy, having never worked on a sprawling studio film before, gladly took the harness.

‘Master and Commander': 15th Anniversary of the Franchise That Never Was
In the annals of 21st century blockbusters, there is a film that stands out among the slew of superheroes and wizards and Jedi that have come to define modern Hollywood tentpoles. It’s a film that in the 15 years since its release has earned a small but passionate following of cinephiles ready to champion it, but was meant to become something so much more.

Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World,” which opened in theaters on Nov. 14, 2003, was Peter Weir’s detailed, gripping adaptation of Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey-Maturin novel series. Taking its name from two of the 20 novels released by O’Brian in the second-half of the 20th century, the film tells the story of Jack Aubrey, a captain in the British Royal Navy played by Russell Crowe, who was still riding the heights of his “Gladiator” action star popularity.

‘Green Book’: Even After N-Word Disaster, Viggo Mortensen Is Still a Best Actor Contender

‘Green Book’: Even After N-Word Disaster, Viggo Mortensen Is Still a Best Actor Contender
To land a Best Actor Oscar nod, it takes all cylinders firing smoothly. “Green Book” star Viggo Mortensen was a candidate for the win: He ranked second in a recent Los Angeles Times critics’ poll, he’s a popular and beloved actor’s actor who landed surprise SAG and Oscar nominations for his survivalist single parent in 2017’s “Captain Fantastic,” a decade after his 2007 Oscar nomination as a tattooed Russian thug in “Eastern Promises.”

Peter Farrelly’s “Green Book” has played to standing ovations, from Toronto where it won the audience award (often a sign of things to come), to packed screenings in the deep south, to recent guild showings in Los Angeles. But at a November 7 Film Independent Q&A, while making a point about racism in the ’60s versus now, Mortensen threw down the n-word.

How that played in the room is up for interpretation. But safe to

‘Outlaw King’ Review: Bloody Epic Proves Chris Pine Is Brave of Heart

‘Outlaw King’ Review: Bloody Epic Proves Chris Pine Is Brave of Heart
It starts with a close-up of a candle and ends with flaming debris being flung at a castle wall by a catapult — in terms of kicking off a period-piece epic with a single unbroken shot, you could say that Outlaw King sets a high bar. This serpentine opening sequence establishes that, in 1304, England’s King Edward seizes power over Scotland after an eight-year-rebellion; the regent forces the country’s lords, including former heir-to-the-throne Robert Bruce (Chris Pine), to bend the knee; his son, Prince Edward II (Billy Howle), has an ax,
