It reminded everyone of Steve Harvey reading the wrong name for Miss Universe. Posted February 27, 2017 by Gina CarboneUm, the 2017 Oscars just pulled a Steve Harvey.Specifically, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway just pulled a Steve Harvey, announcing “La La Land” as the Best Picture winner instead of “Moonlight,” only to have the mistake cleared up well after the (incorrect) winners accepted the award.So for anyone who turned off the TV just after midnight East Coast time — after a 3.5-plus-hour show — you got the wrong news!The whole “La La Land” team already went on stage to accept the Best Picture Oscar — and they had a lot to say — before it was revealed in super-awkward fashion that Beatty and Dunaway had read the wrong name for the winner. Like us on Facebook. It was insisted, over and over, that it was not a joke.Beatty tried to explain that he saw Emma Stone’s name as Best Actress for “La La Land” and that led him to think that was the Best Picture winner. At least he’s off the hook for gaffes now!Want more stuff like this?
Posted February 27, 2017 by Tim HayneAnd the Oscar for Best Picture goes to “Moonlight.”After a VERY confusing envelope mix-up (Emma Stone in “La La Land?”), “Moonlight” took home top honors, beating out the presumed (and almost) winner “La La Land.” In addition to Best Picture, “Moonlight” took home Best Adapted Screenplay, and actor Mahershala Ali took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the movie.”Moonlight” is in theaters now.

Posted February 26, 2017 by Gary SusmanOn paper, “Get Out” may not have looked like much. Yet the movie feels even timelier now given the current state of the White House, with their nativist appeal and contempt for political correctness, seem to have given a lot of white racists permission to come out of the shadows. That is one of the lowest-openings ever for a movie opening on 2,000 or more screens. It did so just a month ago with “Split.” Which, in turn, helped “Get Out”; although a clever trailer for the Peele film had been showing since October, attaching the preview to the beginning of “Split” put “Get Out” in front of the eyeballs of many more horror fans.Getting “Get Out” screened at Sundance and cultivating the critics turned out to be smart moves, too, even though neither is part of Blumhouse’s usual playbook.4. 16 percent of the moviegoers were Hispanic, and 10 percent were Asian. Amazing BuzzSince New Year’s, the multiplex has been in the midst of a horror glut. Even the supposedly highbrow indie-film crowd at this year’s Sundance Film Festival raved about “Get Out.” This weekend’s audiences agreed; the A- they gave it at CinemaScore indicates excellent word-of-mouth. That’s one reason why recent horror movies like the huge bomb “A Cure for Wellness” or the recent “Rings” failed to put butts in seats. It’s another low-budget Blumhouse horror movie ($5 million), with no big-name stars, directed by a first-time filmmaker (“Key & Peele’s” Jordan Peele) better known for his work in front of the camera as a comedian. 3. Very Weak Competition”LEGO Batman” aside, “Get Out” had little to fear from its rivals this weekend. The Emmy-winning comic actor is more of a “name” to attract audiences than much of his cast (unless you think such recognizable actors as Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford, and Catherine Keener can sell movie tickets). Fans of the genre, and of good movies in general, will turn out if the product warrants it. And Peele fans were no doubt curious to see how his satirical sensibility would translate to the horror genre. So it is with “Get Out,” which starts with a fear that anyone can relate to (meeting potential in-laws) and escalates it from there.Tapping into specific racial fears may have pushed the buttons of film critics and many minority moviegoers, but tapping into universal fears helped draw horror fans from across the board and make “Get Out” into a shocking smash. It helps that Peele is a media-savvy interview subject, and he’s been pretty much everywhere over the past few weeks talking up his movie to print and TV outlets. The Timing Couldn’t Be BetterPeele says he started working on the idea for “Get Out” back in 2008, when Barack Obama was first running for president. population. “Get Out,” of course, has a black hero (played by Daniel Kaluuya), and the alienation he feels at being outnumbered by white people who do not seem to have his best interests at heart is a feeling that’s all too recognizable for African-American viewers.It’s no wonder, then, that the film did so well among black moviegoers, who made up 38 percent of the audience, about three times their percentage of the U.S. The African-American AudienceBlack American viewers have long been underserved at the movies; even though they make up a high percentage of the frequent moviegoing population. (Most horror movies earn somewhere between a B- and a B.)2. “Collide,” a European-made car chase thriller set on the Autobahn, premiered in 13th place with a dismal $1.5 million. Both movies earned weak reviews and even weaker word-of-mouth.5. No doubt the film’s minority appeal has much to do with its treatment of racism, which brings us to…6. The fear that Kaluuya’s character feels when he meets his white girlfriend’s parents — that something sinister lies behind the off-putting way their white community treats him — fits in all too well with current events, though it’s never been too far from the surface.Still, even though the movie’s antagonists are white, “Get Out” still sold a healthy 35 percent of its tickets to white viewers. Here are six ways.1. And by all accounts, “Get Out” is better than good.Reviews don’t usually matter for horror films — unless those reviews are positive. “Get Out” managed to earn more by Friday afternoon than those two films combined earned all weekend.How did “Get Out” manage to shock everyone with its opening? Even its distributor, Universal, conservatively projected that the film would open below $20 million. You didn’t have to be a woman to identify with the heroines of those movies, who discovered that their paranoid conspiracy theories were entirely correct, that everyone else was in on it, and that the heroines themselves were the targets. Maybe that’s because Peele smartly used horror conventions to tap into more universal fears.Peele has said he was inspired by the classic horror film’s adapted from Ira Levin’s novels “Rosemary’s Baby” and “The Stepford Wives,” both of which seamlessly wove feminist fears of patriarchy into horror narratives without seeming preachy or didactic. Despite opening on more than 2,000 screens each, neither “Rock Dog” (above) nor “Collide” even cracked the Top Ten.”Rock Dog,” a Chinese-American co-production opened in 11th place, with an estimated $3.7 million. Jordan PeeleWhile Peele has had more success on the small screen, making people laugh, his name is still a draw for scaring folks on the big screen. And yet, “Get Out” scared up an estimated $30.5 million, the fourth biggest debut of the year to date, and more than enough to outpace “LEGO Batman” (which came in second with an estimated $19.0 million).By the way, there were two other new wide releases this weekend, action thriller “Collide” and kiddie cartoon “Rock Dog,” and both bombed huge. In fact, it did well among minority viewers in general. And they couldn’t have been better for “Get Out,” which scored a rare 100 percent “Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes. Blumhouse FTWJason Blum’s production company has all but perfected the formula for turning low-budget, star-free horror films into smash hits.

LOS ANGELES, Feb 26 (Variety.com) – “Get Out,” a trenchant horror film about race relations, rode critical raves to a smashing box office debut. Its success comes as most of the movie business’ gaze is affixed on the Dolby Theater, where the Academy Awards will unfold on Sunday, with “La La Land” expected to be the night’s big winner.With “Get Out” galvanizing multiplexes, two other new releases, “Collide” and “Rock Dog,” collapsed.As the newcomers stumbled, “The Lego Batman Movie” continued to show strength, racking up $19 million in its third week to push its domestic gross to $133 million. Universal distributed, marketed, and partnered on both movies.”Get Out” benefited from being embraced by reviewers, earning a rare 100% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with the likes of the Wall Street Journal’s Joe Morgenstern hailing its “explosive brilliance” and the New York Times’ Manohla Dargis praising it as “exhilaratingly smart.” Not the kind of notices most horror films enjoy. The film, which centers on a black man who discovers that his girlfriend’s liberal, lily-white hometown is guarding a sinister secret, marks a departure for Peele, who is best-known for his work on the Comedy Central series “Key & Peele.” It proves he can handle scares, as well as laughs, supplying sly social commentary in both genres.”Get Out” also extends Blumhouse Productions’ hot hand. The low-budget film was the weekend’s top-grossing domestic release, earning $30.5 million, and propelling its director and writer Jordan Peele onto the Hollywood A-list. The film company scored earlier this year with “Split,” a thriller about a man with a personality disorder that racked up $130.8 million stateside on a $9 million budget.

But there are several movies in the “X-Men” universe in the works, from “New Mutants” and Sophie Turner’s upcoming movie to “Deadpool 2.” So it wouldn’t have been a shock to see Patrick Stewart return as Professor X in a storyline set in the past or present. So, we had some time to sit there and, as I sat there I realized there will never be a better, a more perfect, a more sensitive, emotional, and beautiful way of saying au revoir to Charles Xavier than this movie.

Maggy foretold that “Queen you shall be… If true, it suggests Cersei at least lives through Season 7 into the final Season 8.But it seems like Tyrion killing Cersei is what would be too obvious. Jaime is the one fans won’t expect, unless they’ve been following the hints in the books and — more subtly at this point — on screen.”Game of Thrones” Season 7 arrives on HBO some time this summer.Want more stuff like this? It’s not like the actor could confirm it, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that he said this:”It’s a theory … They think Cersei will be killed by her other younger brother, her twin brother, Jaime Lannister.You know who’s not into that theory? Jaime Lannister actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.The Jaime kills Cersei theory comes from Maggy the Frog’s prophecy for Cersei. “Game of Thrones” now has Cersei Lannister on the Iron Throne in King’s Landing, but even actress Lena Headey said she doesn’t expect Queen Cersei to last long; when Cersei is killed, Headey said she just wants it to be “by the right person.” To her, that “right” person, at least by the end of Season 6, was Arya Stark or Cersei’s younger brother Tyrion Lannister.Fans, however, have a different theory, based on George R.R. It’s probably too obvious.” However, he added that he ultimately has “no idea” at this point how it turns out. Maggy also told Cersei her death would come from the hands of “the valonqar,” which is High Valyrian for “little brother”: “…And when your tears have drowned you, the valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat and choke the life from you.”Cersei thought that meant Tyrion, but fans think it’s Jaime, with that dark Season 6 finale look between them as a big clue:The Huffington Post asked Coster-Waldau about the theory that Jaime could kill Cersei.
