FRIDAY, JULY 30

HOUSE OF GUCCI---trailer released for the Ridley Scott movie starring Lady Gaga, Adam Driver and Al Pacino.

BLACK WIDOW---Scarlett Johansson filed a lawsuit against The Walt Disney Company claiming Disney's decision to premiere the movie in theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access depressed ticket sales. Johansson's contract includes financial compensation tied to ticket sales, and her lawsuit alleges the lower ticket sales may have cost her $50 million. Walt Disney replied the theatrical/Disney+ release, “significantly enhanced her ability to earn additional compensation on top of the $20 million she has received to date.”
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER editor Matthew Belloni reports that Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige is also angry at Disney, "[Feige is] a company man, and not prone to corporate showdowns or shouting matches. But I’m told he’s angry and embarrassed. He lobbied Disney against the day-and-date plan for Black Widow, preferring the big screen exclusivity and not wanting to upset his talent. And then when the sh*t hit the fan, the movie started tanking, and Johansson’s team threatened litigation, he wanted Disney to make this right with her."
Emma Stone is reportedly considering a similar lawsuit against Disney after her CRUELLA was premiered in theaters and on Disney+ Premiere Access with only respectable box office results.





WATERWORLD---tv series sequel underway to the 1995 Kevin Costner sci fi movie. The tv series is set 20 years after the original movie. Dan Trachtenberg (10 CLOVERFIELD LANE) is the director.





THE WALKING DEAD---photo released shows Laila Robins (PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES) as Commonwealth leader Pamela Milton.





SUICIDE SQUAD---David Ayer commented on studio cut of his 2016 movie, "I never told my side of the story and never will… I’m old school like that. So I kept my mouth shut and took the tsunami of sometimes shocking personal criticism. I put my life into Suicide Squad. I made something amazing. My cut is intricate and emotional journey with some bad people who are s–t on and discarded (a theme that resonates in my soul).
The studio cut is not my movie. Read that again. And my cut is not the ten-week director’s cut – it’s a fully mature edit by Lee Smith standing on the incredible work by John Gilroy. It’s all Steven Price’s brilliant score, with not a single radio song in the whole thing. It has traditional character arcs, amazing performances, a solid third-act resolution. A handful of people have seen it.”

DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS---a villain in the sequel could be sea monster Gargantos after it was seen listed on co-star Yenifer Molina's professional networking profile.

BATGIRL---JK Simmons is in negotiations to return as Gotham City Police Commissioner James Gordon in the HBO Max tv series.

SNOWPIERCER---TNT renewed the series for Season 4.

TRIVIA---Tobe Hooper's horror classic POLTERGEIST has a reputation for being a cursed movie and one of the reasons for the curse was the controversy that real skeletons might have been used in the Jo Beth Williams swimming pool scene. Williams said, "You have to understand that this sequence took probably four or five days to shoot. So I was in mud and goop all day every day for like four or five days with skeletons all around me [as I was] screaming. In my innocence and naiveté, I assumed that these were not real skeletons. I assumed that they were prop skeletons made out of plastic or rubber. I found out — as did the whole crew — that they were using real skeletons, because it’s far too expensive to make fake skeletons out of rubber. And I think everybody got real creeped out by the idea of that."
Special effects makeup artist Craig Reardon settled the controversy, "I acquired a number of actual biological surgical skeletons is what they’re called. They’re for hanging in classrooms in study. These are actual skeletons from people. I think the bones are acquired from India.
But at any rate, we got 13 of these. And we dressed them so that they looked not like bleached, clean, bolted together skeletons but instead, disintegrating cadavers. And, you know, added sculptured rubber and things to them so they would have a kind of dramatic leering spooky aspect and not be dull — what am I trying to say — clinical type corpses, you know."

Imagine spending six to eight weeks in front of a green screen and getting paid $20 million dollars!

I have no emotional tie to the movie, but I say go get 'em, ScarJo.
Teach that mouse how dangerous a wronged woman can be!

I can understand her feeling cheated out of revenue, but unless the contract stated it was going to have a theatrical release before streaming she's got no legal grounds to stand on. It's Disney's movie and they can do what they think is best. They'll probably settle out of court just so to avoid anymore bad publicly. You don't want to look like the bad guy cheating on the Her-Ro.

At first I thought "wow Scarlett way to be cut from further films!" Then I remembered she's done so no risk there. big grin

Who could've guessed that the Scarlett Johansson Black Widow streaming imbroglio would bring out the chauvinist trolls!

I'm having a hard time processing that (not)!

Chauvinists?

I don't know about that.
I'm just anti greedy, creatively-bankrupt mouse.

Jackal, I don't see any comments here that are connected to her gender.
So what's the proof behind the accusation?

I make fun of the woke because the woke bash us across the heads in every aspect of media.
But you won't find one instance where I'm a chauvinist.

Awesome! I've been defending the film avidly since the 90s and have probably seen it 20 times. I've always wanted to see more of this fictional universe, so bring it on! 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE is a good "chamber piece" movie, so Trachtenberg can deliver.

You know what, guys and dolls?
Reading it back just now, I can see how my "wronged woman" comment could be construed as a chauvinist remark.
But it's got to be clear that, especially with the use of emojis and whatnot, comments such as that can only be construed as tongue-in-cheek.
My context was that of satirizing a cliche in the pursuit of defeating a common enemy--Disney. big grin

I will leave it to the ladies of the board.
If it's offensive to them, I'll take it down.
No questions asked.

At press time, Johansson’s lawyers added that this breach hit even harder, as her career had still not fully recovered from when Marvel released Iron Man II, The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Captain Marvel, and Avengers: Endgame.

LMAO!

A "Waterworld" sequel TV series gives hope to a potential sequel TV series for "Battlefield Earth".

I just turned 60, so I might be pretty set in my ways.
But I have become pretty uneasy about holding open a door for a woman.
