Bill & Ted Face The Music Releases 6 Month Countdown Teaser

Bill & Ted Face The Music Releases 6 Month Countdown Teaser
Wanna hear something excellent, my dudes and dudettes and non-binaryettes? We all get to see Keanu’s smooth, un-aged face in a mere six months! Also, Alex Winter is there, and he’s very nice, so we should be excited for that, too! Where are we seeing these fellas? Why, in Bill & Ted Face The Music of course! We’ve already waited 19 years, so what’s another half a year, right?

Orion Pictures released a lil’ baby teaser today on Instagram to celebrate the occasion, though it’s just a re-purposed clip from Excellent Adventure with “Six Months” overlayed on the two doing some air guitar celebrations, and doesn’t showcase any new footage. Still, it’s sharing the spirit and excitement that many folks have for this upcoming sequel.

Anthony Hopkins to Star as Mike Tyson’s Trainer in Drama Cus and Mike

Joseph Baxter Feb 20, 2020

Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins headlines biopic Cus and Mike, set to play Mike Tyson’s legendary trainer, Cus D’Amato.

Anthony Hopkins is set to bring his Oscar-and-Emmy-winning repertory skill set to the boxing ring… well, a ring-adjacent location, anyway, set to play trainer Cus D’Amato, in a developing fact-based film project about how the legendary prepper of pugilists molded one fighter in particular, Mike Tyson.

The launch of Berlin's European Film Market (Efm) has yielded a most intriguing project from Patriot Pictures, a biopic titled Cus and Mike, which, as revealed by Deadline, will have Hopkins headline as the titular trainer. The film is set with The Notebook director Nick Cassavetes, who will work off an original screenplay by Desmond Nakano, based on Montieth Illingworth’s 1991 biography, Mike Tyson: Money, Myth, and Betrayal.

Bob Bakish: CBS To Spend Less On Pilots In 2020

Bob Bakish: CBS To Spend Less On Pilots In 2020
This year’s crop of CBS pilots includes The Silence of the Lambs sequel Clarice, a new take on The Equalizer and Patrick Dempsey-fronted political drama Ways & Means. But ViacomCBS boss Bob Bakish revealed that the company is spending less on pilots this year than last.

President and CEO Bakish, speaking on an investor call after posting its fourth-quarter financials, said, “I was with [David] Nevins last week and we were talking about CBS, and they’re actually spending less on pilots this year because they feel very good about where the network is and therefore are able to be more prudent.”

CBS has picked up six drama pilots and seven comedy pilots this year, including The Lincoln Lawyer straight-to-series order and Chuck Lorre-produced comedy pilot United States of Al, which was ordered off-cycle. That’s down from seven drama and nine comedy pilots last year. Reduced pilot volume

Anthony Hopkins Lists Cliffside Malibu Home that Survived Wildfires for $11.5 Million
Anthony Hopkins is looking to part ways with his picturesque California home.

The Oscar-winning actor, 82, recently put his 4,000-square-foot cliffside Malibu estate on the market for $11.5 million. The home, which boasts views overlooking the ocean between Zuma Beach and Point Dume, was miraculously left untouched during the 2018 Woolsey wildfire that devastated much of the area.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the Woolsey fire destroyed 670 structures in Malibu, with an estimated $1.6 billion in market value homes lost.

Built in the 1950s, Hopkins’ home features five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a large living room and a pair of fireplaces. It’s listed

Birds of Prey, Black Mask, and Queer-Coded Villains

Birds of Prey, Black Mask, and Queer-Coded Villains
Delia Harrington Feb 13, 2020

For a mostly progressive film, Birds of Prey's choice to queer code villains Roman Sionis and Victor Zsasz is an odd and problematic one.

Ewan McGregor’s Ramon Sionis, Aka Black Mask, has received near-universal praise for his performance as the intense, megalomaniacal villain in Birds of Prey, while Chris Messina’s Victor Zsasz has been applauded for a role deviating from his usual leading man fare. The pair have an obsessive dynamic where one feeds off of the other, though from scene to scene it’s unclear who is the parasite and who is the host.

Another fixture of this critical appraisal? Descriptors like flamboyant, campy and preening. The Chicago Sun-Times hits him with “flashy...preening and pouting.” Rolling Stone describes Zsasz as Sionis’s “boytoy.” That Star dropped any pretense and called him Liberace. That is to say, even those who aren’t explicitly

Pilot Season Slows Down as Broadcast Networks Rethink Strategy in Streaming Era

Pilot Season Slows Down as Broadcast Networks Rethink Strategy in Streaming Era
Now more than ever, the broadcast networks are feeling the need to change up their typical pilot season strategy.

With existing streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus and Amazon and new competitors like HBO Max and Peacock developing shows year-round, the broadcasters are slowly but surely shifting their plans to include more off-cycle pickups.

“We’ve been pursuing a strategy we’re calling second cycle rather than off-cycle,” says Simran Sethi, executive VP of development and content strategy for ABC Entertainment. “I think the term ‘off-cycle’ to a lot of people in the creative community has historically felt secondary, so it just becomes a part of regular old pilot season that takes a lot longer. So we’re calling it ‘second cycle’ because we’re considering things in two very distinct timelines — one being the traditional cycle that’s happening now … and in the second cycle we’re holding

The 92nd Oscars Afterthoughts and the Complete Winners List

by Nathaniel R

You know how we do at The Film Experience. We'll have a few days of post-mortem on the 92nd Academy Awards, honoring the films of 2019. So it's not quite over yet but the rest is the after-party if you will. And we think you will feel like partying. We sure do. Parasite won 55% of your votes in our readers poll for who Should win (with Hollywood and 1917 fighting for a distant second place on the Best Picture chart) and it also took the top prize at both the Team Experience Awards and my own prizes right here. And then it actually went and won Hollywood's top honor, too, defying all odds (again) to become the first Foreign Language picture ever to triumph at the Oscars. It will go down as history as one of the best choices the Academy ever made in the top category along with films like Moonlight,

4 reasons why Laura Dern (‘Marriage Story’) just won the Oscar

4 reasons why Laura Dern (‘Marriage Story’) just won the Oscar
As Gold Derby predicted, the 2020 Oscar for Best Supporting Actress went to … Laura Dern! The veteran actress already prevailed at the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice, SAG Awards and BAFTAs for her role as divorce attorney Nora Fanshaw in Netflix’s “Marriage Story.” Usually when someone takes home all four of those televised precursors, they have the Oscar in the bag. Dern’s co-nominees Scarlett Johansson (“Jojo Rabbit”), Margot Robbie (“Bombshell”), Florence Pugh (“Little Women”) and Kathy Bates (“Richard Jewell”) simply couldn’t catch up this awards season. Below, see four reasons why Dern just won the Oscar.

Brad Pitt is now the 3rd person to win Oscars for acting and Best Picture

Brad Pitt is now the 3rd person to win Oscars for acting and Best Picture
Brad Pitt won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar Sunday night — his first for acting — but any awards buff knows it’s not his first career Oscar. He previously won Best Picture as producer on “12 Years Slave” (2013) and is now one of three people to have won Oscars for acting and producing — and all for different films.

Michael Douglas was the first, prevailing for Best Picture with “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (1975) first and then 12 years later for Best Actor for “Wall Street” (1987). Pitt’s “Ocean’s” pal George Clooney snagged Best Supporting Actor for “Syriana” (2005) and then added a Best Picture statuette seven years later with “Argo” (2012). So Pitt’s six-year gap means he’s accomplished this in the shortest time span.

Laurence Olivier won Best Actor for “Hamlet” (1948) and produced the Best Picture champ as well, but at the time, the Best Picture Oscar went to the studio,

The Top 10 jokes Billy Crystal would have made as this year’s Oscar host

The Top 10 jokes Billy Crystal would have made as this year’s Oscar host
It was 30 years ago that Billy Crystal hosted the Academy Awards for the first time. And he hit it out of the park. He would go on to host the show eight times, most recently in 2012. He’s arguably the greatest living former Oscar emcee. And I hope that he returns someday. When I watch the show on Sunday, I’ll be thinking of the jokes that Crystal might have made.

Predict the Oscars now; change them until February 9

And here they are.

1. Good evening and welcome to the Academy Awards. A three-and-a-half-hour TV event with Hollywood’s biggest stars – all dressed up and trying to look decades younger than they really are. It’s like “The Irishman,” only on ABC instead of Netflix.

2. “The Irishman” could become the first streaming film to win Best Picture. But some traditional voters don’t want that happen. They think movies should be

Texas Chainsaw Massacre Reboot in the Works

Tony Sokol Feb 7, 2020

Ryan and Andy Tohill set to breathe new life into an old leatherface as Texas Chainsaw Massacre begins again.

Sally and Franklin Hardesty are picking up one last goddamn hitchhiker. Legendary Entertainment has their hand on the starter rope of another The Texas Chainsaw Massacre reboot, according to Variety.

With a screenplay by Chris Thomas Devlin, the film will be directed by Ryan and Andy Tohill, who made their feature-directing debut with The Dig (2018). That movie was about a convicted killer with amnesia who gets out of jail to dig up a body he can’t remember. Much like the last film made from Tobe Hooper's 1974 classic: the 2017 film Leatherface directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo.

“The Tohill’s vision is exactly what the fans want,” producer Fede Alvarez said in a statement. “It’s violent, exciting and so depraved that it will stay with you forever.

Milos Forman movies: All 12 films ranked worst to best
Milos Forman would’ve celebrated his 88th birthday on February 18, 2020. The late director, who passed away in 2018, only made a dozen movies in his career, yet several of those are classics. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at all 12 of Forman’s films, ranked worst to best.

Born in Czechoslovakia in 1932, Forman first came to international attention with “Loves of a Blonde” (1965) and “The Firemen’s Ball” (1967), both of which earned Oscar nominations as Best Foreign Language Film. In those early works, the director showed an affinity for antiauthoritarianism and oddball outsiders that would animate his best work.

He made his American debut with “Taking Off” (1971), and just four years later he was collecting his first Oscar for “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (1975). The comedic drama about a mental patient (Jack Nicholson) rebelling against a tyrannical nurse (Louise Fletcher) became one of only three films

Nick Nolte movies: 15 greatest films ranked worst to best
Nick Nolte will celebrate his 79th birthday on February 8, 2020. Born in the Midwest, the actor found his place in high school and college as a star football player. After being kicked out of his last college because of poor grades, he decided to try his hand at acting and one of film’s most successful performers was born.

Nolte moved to Los Angeles and began studying acting at the Pasadena Playhouse and the Stella Adler Institute. He then proceeded to start working in guest star roles on television. His big break came when he was cast in one of the lead roles in the miniseries “Rich Man, Poor Man.” The series received a huge 23 Emmy nominations and 11 of its actors were nominated in various categories, including Nolte.

That success launched Nolte into a movie career, with his first film being “The Deep,” which was a high profile expected hit since
