First Rule of ‘Fight Club’

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt

It is hard to believe but Fight Club is now more than 20 years old. David Fincher’s magnum opus on men, insomnia, and soap opened in theaters on October 15, 1999. The controversial film quickly became a cult favorite and soon was one of the most quoted films of its era.

But that was 20 years ago. One of its two stars, Brad Pitt, now jokes that he no longer even remembers the first rule of Fight Club. (We would tell him what it is, but that would break the first rule of Fight Club.) Honored with the Maltin Modern Master Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival this week, Pitt accepted his prize with a very funny speech where he marked the passing of time in his career by acknowledging all the things he is now too old to do...

Coming Soon.net recently talked to The Turning star Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) about the horror film and he confirmed his band The Aubreys will be featured on the horror film’s soundtrack.

“We didn’t really know that we were doing it until a few months before the movie was going to come out,” Wolfhard shared, “We had a really fun time doing it as a quick thing. We had a lot of fun doing it.”

On the 90’s inspiration behind the Aubreys track, the star sai...

Defends ‘Tropic Thunder’ Blackface

Defends 'Tropic Thunder' Blackface

Defends ‘Tropic Thunder’ Blackface

Ben Stiller’s Hollywood studio satire Tropic Thunder ambushed moviegoers nearly 12 years ago. And yet after all this time, there’s one aspect of this wild ride of a movie we can’t seem to fully comprehend — Stiller’s decision to put Robert Downey Jr. in blackface for the role of Kirk Lazarus, and RDJ’s subsequent agreement to this decision. Downey Jr. addresses the issue in an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, in support of his equally-baffling Dolittle. While he understands that his role in Tropic Thunder ruffled feathers in a major way, he does his best to justify the thought process behind the problematic character choice:

[Ben] knew exactly what the vision for this was, he executed it, it was impossible to not hav...

First Worst Movie of 2020

Doctor Doolittle

Doctor Doolittle

You know the scene in Tim Burton’s Batman where a back-alley doctor tries to repair Jack Napier’s chemically-scarred face, and he accidentally gives him the hideously scarred visage of the Joker? Dolittle is like the movie version of that; an unpleasant, incoherent mess that feels like it was stitched together from outtakes and reshoots of something that used to look totally different.

The movie was originally announced as The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle and directed by Stephen Gaghan, the writer of Traffic and the director of Syriana. Last year, Universal reportedly brought in Wrath of the Titans’ Jonathan Liebesman to oversee 21 days of additional shooting after the studio decided that Gaghan’s initial cut, in The Hollywood Reporter’s words, “needed s...

Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer may helm Sony’s Uncharted

Sony’s Uncharted movie may just be on track yet again after losing Travis Knight (Bumblebee), as Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer is being eyed by the studio to take over the director’s chair on the long in-development video game adaptation, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Fleischer exploded with his directorial debut on the acclaimed horror-comedy Zombieland and followed it up with modest hits 30 Minutes or Less and Gangster Squad before helming the box office smash Venom and last year’s successful long-awaited follow-up Zombieland: Double Tap.

‘Star Trek’ Movie Will Have ‘New Cast’

Star Trek may boldly go on a search for new actors.

In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, writer/director Noah Hawley cleared the air about his upcoming Star Trek film. While the movie was initially billed as the fourth movie starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and the rest of the so-called “Kelvin” timeline cast, Hawley now strongly hints that they won’t appear after all.

Hawley told THR that calling his movie “Star Trek IV” would be “kind of a misnomer” and that he has his “own take on the franchise as a life-long fan”:

Asked if the film would involve a new cast, he responded, ‘Yeah, I think so. Yeah...

Brad Pitt Really Doesn’t Want

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt

The Brad Pitt Oscar campaign is going extremely, charmingly, handsomely well. Pitt’s been popping up at awards ceremonies to pick up Best Supporting Actor prizes — or in some cases to present awards to his colleagues from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood — and pretty much every speech he’s given has been hilarious. On Tuesday night, he presented Quentin Tarantino with his Best Screenplay award from the New York Film Critics Circle. In doing so, he coined the phrase “iambic quentameter” to describe Tarantino’s distinctive dialogue — a term so clever I’m honestly furious I didn’t think of it.

Then last night at the National Board of Review awards, Pitt got his own prize, for Best Supporting Actor, and dropped a hilarious line stating that his life goals right...

Dog Friendly Screenings Of Cats

Dog friendly screenings of Cats are happening. Perhaps the biggest story at theaters during the tail end of 2019 was, for all the wrong reasons, the arrival of the big screen adaptation of the smash hit Broadway musical, Cats.

The lavish Andrew Lloyd Webber production first arrived back in 1981, and after much acclaim as well as a triumphant run of awards, Cats firmly established itself as one of the greatest stage productions of all time. Given the duration of time that Cats has dominated stages around the world, it may come as a surprise for some as to how long it took to get a film adaptation off the ground. After all, there have been numerous popular stage to film productions over the years, with the most recent example of success being Tom Hooper’s Oscar-winning take on Les Miserabl...
