Deadline we didn't believe this would ever actually happen but supposedly James Cameron starts shooting today on his FOUR consecutive Avatar sequels with an estimated budget of over 1 billion dollars
Cartoon Brew this year continues to be weak for animated features but next year's trailers are already popping up. Peter Rabbit anyone? And, in case you missed it...
TFE Isle of Dogs trailer
Cinematic Corner Sati always keeps us up to date on what Hugh Jackman is doing. Apparently he's making a movie called The Front Runner but, alas, it is NOT an adaptation of that famous gay novel that has never managed to get a movie made despite numerous rumors that it would become a movie over the decades. Instead it's a movie about the politician Gary Hart.

Out how's this for an odd sounding project. Moonlight's writer Tarrell Alvin McCraney is going to script a musical for David Oyelowo and Disney that is a cross between Othello and Cyrano. What the what now?

Londonist body art of famous painting on five models walking around Britain. The text keeps saying they're naked but they're not. They're all wearing pasties and underwear but it's still a neat art project if not cool "body painting". Give me Keith Haring in the 80s or Demi Moore in the 90s in their altogether. That was awesome body painting!

I sent a tweet to Aronofsky encouraging him to hire Bates and Stone for future projects with significant screen time.

Thank you for highlighting that video essay on the Wonder Woman. I thought the filmmakers were very judicious in how the BIG theme was used, and it was a real education to hear how carefully the rest of the score was built around it.

omg Sterling K Brown is so hot

September 26, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMarc

Thanks for the link! i hope Hugh has more luck with Front Runner awards-wise because TGS looks so dead :/

As I've said, Peter Rabbit is just...why!? We made this movie already, with Mike Myers, and it sucked then too.

September 26, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterVolvagia

YES to ANYTHING involving Sharon Stone!!! Why did Hollywood forget about her? She is tough, smart and sexier than any 20 something they've got these days!

September 26, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterDAVID

I'm here for the renaissance of Stone..

September 26, 2017 | Unregistered Commentermarkgordonuk

I read the book The Front Runner is based on and it is terrible. Also, Jackman looks nothing like Gary Hart and I'm not sure he can convincingly play a middle American politician.

September 26, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterSuzanne

I`m right with markgordonuk, DAVID and /3rtful..... SHARON STONE so deserves a comeback, she
was once the biggest of them all, and she can do it all- ice-cool , calculating, emotional, funny, all with sizzling effectiveness, and she is THAT kind of Movie Star that Hollywood doesn`t ( or cannot) produce anymore. Remember when Tarantino was (rumored) going to work with her ? I think that was back in 2009 or 2010 and it sounded so right, or when Verhoeven (apparently) considered her for the lead in Elle ? (Love Huppert in it, she was my second choice to win the Oscar that year, right after Natalie Portman). Let`s hope The Disaster Artist brings some fuzz and her Soderbergh experimental Mosaic is a hit.

Stone's remake of Les Diabolique is a Big guilty pleasure of mine,I watch it once a year,you can tell by Stones outfits in it how much power she wielded in Hollywood back when movie stars were movie stars and not Twitter fodder.

Her Catherine Trammell is Iconic in film and also the role she'll forever be associated but over the years proved herself as many beauties have too that smarts hide behind a gr8 smile.

She deserved that Casino nomination.

September 26, 2017 | Unregistered Commentermarkgordonuk

I have always thought Stone was a good actress... I'm sure Aronofsky will obey your tweets!!!

I see her doing strong supporting roles as a opposed to being the center.

September 26, 2017 | Unregistered Commenternatalie

I don't know what to make of Avatar. On one hand it guarantees work in a blockbuster for Sigourney Weaver, but it probably prevents her from doing anything else. But who knows where offers are coming in these days.

OMG ...I LOVE DIABOLIQUE, course the 1955`s way superior, but if the 1996 remake ( sort of) has a silver lining it`s called SHARON STONE , her acid edge humor combined with her chew screen larger than life persona is everything , she keeps busy delivering either menacing wisecracks or campy ones and her wardrobe is consistently mind-boggling. Talking about Ms. Stone and remakes, let`s agree that INTERSECTION (1994) is way better than its french counterpart , 1970`s "Les Choses de la Vie", The casting of the vampish Stone as a socially proper, sexually repressed woman was a bold stroke but she manages to find a superb emotional depth in her character and oozes her best Grace Kelly poised and collected demeanor.

September 26, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterEder Arcas

His evil HOMOPHOBIC half-brother Adam. He was dastardly, but hawt, like just about everyone else on "Dynasty".

Whatever did happen to "The Front Runner" plans? Wasn't Paul Newman the last connected star?

I also endorse Sharon Stone's renaissance. She tweets a lot of her glamourous past on Twitter.

September 26, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterforever1267

Yes bring back La Stone - she is a real movie star

September 26, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterjaragon
