Can ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ and ‘Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood’ Coexist at Box Office?
Looking ahead as the calendar turns to August, this coming weekend will be the last big one of the summer box office season. “The Lion King,” now a freshly-minted $1 billion hit, will continue to be a presence, “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood” enters a crucial second weekend and Universal sends in its summer tentpole, “Hobbs & Shaw.”

“Hobbs & Shaw” isn’t looking like it will make “Jurassic World” numbers… at least domestically. The “Fast & Furious” spinoff is projected to see an opening in the low $60 million range, with Universal estimating a $57-60 million domestic launch. By comparison, 2017’s “The Fate of the Furious” opened to $98.7 million.

But over the last eight years, starting with “Fast Five,” the “Fast & Furious” series has taken more and more of its success from overseas. For “Fate of the Furious,” which made over $1 billion, only 18.3% of its total grosses came from domestic moviegoers.

Veronica Mars recently returned for a whole new season on Hulu. Technically, it’s season 4, coming on the heels of the previous three seasons that aired on Upn/The CW.

‘Queen & Slim’ Director Melina Matsoukas Says Movie Is a ‘Beautiful, Modern Black Love Story’

‘Queen & Slim’ Director Melina Matsoukas Says Movie Is a ‘Beautiful, Modern Black Love Story’
Melina Matsoukas is hoping her feature film directorial debut “Queen & Slim” gets people talking.

“I think the largest thing I want people to get out of it is to create that dialogue, to have people talking about both sides, to change the political climate,” Matsoukas said during a Q&a with members of the press during a recent sneak peek at some of the movie’s footage.

She added, “There’s going to be people on both sides in this narrative and hopefully most are on the right side of history and that we’re part of changing that narrative into a space that does justice for black people.”

The Universal film, written by Lena Waithe, stars Daniel Kaluuya as Slim, a Costco worker who is stopped for a minor traffic violation while on a first date with Queen, a criminal defense attorney (Jodie Turner-Smith). Things take a deadly

WGA Challenger Craig Mazin Drops Out of Race, Citing Family Medical Issue

WGA Challenger Craig Mazin Drops Out of Race, Citing Family Medical Issue
Chernobyl” writer-creator Craig Mazin, vocal in his opposition to the Writers Guild of America‘s current strategy in its battle with talent agencies, announced Wednesday that’s he’s dropping out of the running for the union’s second-in-command due to a family medical issue.

Mazin was running for vice president as part of a slate of WGA West executive candidates led by “Carol” scribe and presidential hopeful Phyllis Nagy. The group takes issue with the WGA’s current position in the agency fight: Mazin contends that union leadership ought to be open to negotiating a compromise, rather than see the entire practice of packaging as a non-starter.

“I am regrettably withdrawing from the race for vice president of the Wgaw due to a medical issue with an immediate family member that will require more of my attention and care in the next year than I had expected,” Mazin said

Bruce Lee’s Protégé Recalls His Humility Amid ‘Once Upon a Time’ Criticism

Bruce Lee’s Protégé Recalls His Humility Amid ‘Once Upon a Time’ Criticism
When it comes to martial arts and cinema, Bruce Lee is an icon. But his depiction in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” as an arrogant blowhard who brags about being able to “cripple” boxer Muhammad Ali could not be further from the truth, according to those closest to the real Lee.

For one, Lee revered Ali and other boxers, often telling his martial students to mimic the ease and flow of Ali’s movements and footwork, according to Dan Inosanto, Lee’s protégé and training partner, speaking to Variety exclusively.

“Bruce Lee would have never said anything derogatory about Muhammad Ali because he worshiped the ground Muhammad Ali walked on. In fact, he was into boxing more so than martial arts,” says Inosanto, one of only three martial artists who were trained by Lee to teach Jeet Kune Do at Lee’s martial arts institutes. Jeet

A24 Shares Viral Video of Child Fleeing Movie Theater During ‘Midsommar’ Screening

A24 Shares Viral Video of Child Fleeing Movie Theater During ‘Midsommar’ Screening
[Editor’s note: The following post contains spoilers for “Midsommar.”]

Bringing a young child to an Ari Aster movie probably isn’t the best idea. A24 is going viral after sharing a video of a young boy quickly running with his father out of a movie theater in the middle of a “Midsommar” screening. Aster’s latest was rated R by the MPAA for “disturbing ritualistic violence, grisly images, strong sexual content, graphic nudity, drug use and language,” so it’s not exactly a children’s movie.

Midsommar” featured no shortage of horrific imagery, especially for kids. The story centers around a grieving young woman (Florence Pugh) who vacations to a remote Swedish village with her boyfriend (Jack Reynor) and discovers the townspeople are members of a pagan cult. In one sequence, Pugh and Reynor’s character bear witness to a cult ceremony in which two elderly citizens plunge off a cliff to their deaths. Aster shows the suicides in graphic detail.

The Emmy Race for Limited Series Promises to Be Just As Dramatic As Its Nominees

The outstanding quality of this year’s Outstanding Limited Series nominees can’t be overstated.

It’s a race that appeared largely cut and dry last December, when Showtime’s “Escape at Dannemora” repeatedly edged out HBO’s “Sharp Objects” to take home trophies at the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards, and Directors Guild Awards.

Yet as the 2019 Emmy Awards grow ever closer, “Dannemora” is far from a front-runner, facing stiff competition from a duo of series debuting late in the eligibility period in HBO’s “Chernobyl” and Netflix’s “When They See Us.” With “Sharp Objects” still hanging around and FX’s niche gem “Fosse/Verdon” holding its own, limited series provides rich dividends for awards analysis.

This week IndieWire Editor-at-Large Anne Thompson and TV Awards Editor Libby Hill are doing just that, sizing up the contenders in Limited Series, as well as its writing and directing categories, in

Venice Juror Jennifer Kent Disappointed Only Two Women Directors Competing at 2019 Festival

Venice Juror Jennifer Kent Disappointed Only Two Women Directors Competing at 2019 Festival
When Jennifer Kent’s “The Nightingale” debuted at the Venice Film Festival last year, it was the only film in competition from a woman director. Upon her return to the lauded Italian festival as a jury member, the filmmaker was dismayed to find that the numbers haven’t improved. The 2019 festival will host just two films from women directors, a whopping one more than last year. Haifaa Al-Mansour’s “The Candidate” and Shannon Murphy’s “Babyteeth” will vie for the Golden Lion at this year’s festival. Speaking to The Wrap recently, Kent, whose previous film “The Babadook” became one of the defining horror films of the century to date, made no secret of her disappointment with the dismal numbers.

“I think it’s an issue. I hoped there would be more. I really did,” Kent said. “There are some incredible women out there making films, and we need to see them,

‘Hobbs and Shaw’ Writer Addresses “Justice For Han”, Says Shaw Will Have “One of the Greatest Arcs of the Fast Franchise”
Han Seoul-Oh, the constantly snacking, effortlessly cool Fast and Furious character played by Sung Kang, was killed on screen by Jason Statham‘s Deckard Shaw, a character who has since ingratiated himself into Domenic Toretto’s “family” even after murdering one of its best members.

How Hans Zimmer Recreated ‘The Lion King’ Score With a Greater ‘Circle of Life’ Musical Vibe

How Hans Zimmer Recreated ‘The Lion King’ Score With a Greater ‘Circle of Life’ Musical Vibe
For Hans Zimmer, “The Lion King” has always been “about giving to Africa,” not “taking from Africa.” And 25 years later, returning to his Oscar-winning score, he had a greater sense of purpose. The world had changed, and so had Zimmer, who leaned into the primacy of nature and environmental themes in Jon Favreau’s innovative remake comprised of stunning, life-like, CG animation. “The Circle of Life” had now come to life in all its beautiful African glory, like a narrative nature doc, and Zimmer tuned in musically with that vibe.

“Jon is a smart man,” Zimmer said. “He knew I had some sense of ownership, but at the same time, what is there to talk about? I thought I knew what they were doing. He showed me the opening and it was way beyond my imagination. It looks like reality, but there’s great artistry involved…very emotional.”

The Handmaid’s Tale is rolling the dice toward its finale with one of its uneven, but serviceably suspenseful, episodes. “Liars” runs too fast, stops, then pants, then runs too fast toward the horizon.
