Zac Efron Makes for a Killer Ted Bundy in First Look at ‘Extremely Wicked’
The fact that Zac Efron, handsome human man, looks a lot like Ted Bundy, infamous serial killer, is making us a little…uncomfortable. But maybe that’s the point of Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, the new film in which Efron portrays Bundy and reminds us that yes, even charismatic and very attractive people can be total murder monsters.
Louis C.K. Responds to Sexual Misconduct Allegations: ‘These Stories Are True’
In recent months, while promoting the release of his upcoming indie feature I Love You, Daddy, Louis C.K. has been asked about rumors of his sexual misconduct that have circulated for years. Given that some parts of his film eerily — and perhaps even brazenly — evoke those rumors, it’s a fair question, but one he has repeatedly dodged, refusing to validate those rumors by so much as acknowledging them. But after five women came forward with allegations about C.K.’s past sexual misconduct in the New York Times, the comedian has finally broken his silence in a heartfelt letter.
Louis C.K. Accused of Engaging in Sexual Misconduct With Five Women
This afternoon, the New York premiere of Louis C.K.’s upcoming film I Love You, Daddy was canceled amid reports that the New York Times was on the verge of publishing a major story about the comedian. That story is, as many suspected, a damning exposé on C.K.’s history of alleged sexual misconduct. Five women went on the record with the Times to share stories of uncomfortable encounters with C.K., the oldest of which dates back to the late ’90s.
Rami Malek Becomes Freddie Mercury in ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ First Look
It was beginning to seem as though a Queen biopic would never come to pass. Sacha Baron Cohen (who, let’s be honest, would be perfect) was attached to the project at one time, but creative differences with the surviving band members ultimately forced him to drop out. But after years of will they or won’t they development hell, Bohemian Rhapsody is finally in production with Mr. Robot star Rami Malek portraying rock icon Freddie Mercury — and there’s actual photographic evidence to prove it.
Disney Can’t Seem to Find Actors for Guy Ritchie’s Live-Action ‘Aladdin’
Disney has several live-action remakes in development, but two titles in particular have attracted a little extra attention: Aladdin and Mulan. Although pop culture is becoming increasingly socially conscious, Hollywood’s unfortunate history of whitewashing has left many (rightfully) concerned over the casting for both of these films, especially since the studio behind them doesn’t exactly have the best track record with diversity. And while Disney has made it clear that they’re committed to casting actors of relevant ethnicity in Aladdin and Mulan, a new report reveals that the studio is struggling to do so for at least one of those projects.
‘Goosebumps 2’ Teaser Image Reveals a Trip to ‘HorrorLand’
Several pieces of promotional art for upcoming Universal and Sony films debuted online today, including teaser images for Jurassic World 2 (you can check that out here) and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. One of the more curious images of the bunch is a logo for Goosebumps 2, which also reveals the official title of the sequel — and it’s something R.L. Stine fans should feel pretty stoked about.
We Almost Lived in a World Where Jeff Goldblum Was the Voice of Apple’s Siri
We don’t really need further evidence that we are living in a total nightmare (or an alternate timeline, if you’re one of Those People), but then a piece of news comes along that forces us to confront the true horror of reality by offering a painful glimpse at a beautiful life that could’ve been — and never was (at least not in this timeline, if you’re one of Those People). Today, it’s the heartbreaking revelation that Jeff Goldblum — national treasure, king of the silver foxes and master of the universe — could have been the voice of Siri on your iPhone. In the mournful words of the wise Adele, WE COULD’VE HAD IT AAAALLLLLL.
