Believe it or not, George Clooney almost starred in The Notebook.

No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. The Midnight Sky director discussed the role he would’ve had during a virtual chat at the 64th BFI London Film Festival on Sunday, Oct. 18. In fact, George explained that he and legendary actor Paul Newman were going to star in the romantic drama.

“We were going to do The Notebook together,” Clooney revealed, according to Deadline. “Basically, I was going to play him as a young man, and it was funny. We met and said, ‘This is it. It’s going to be great.'”

“He’s one of the handsomest guys you’ve ever seen. We met up [again] and I said, ‘I can’t play you. I don’t look anything like you. This is insane,'” Clooney explained. “We just wanted to do it because we wanted to work together, [but] it

Fury Road director shuts down rumours the movie didn’t have a script

From Digital Spy

The director of Mad Max: Fury Road has denied rumours the film didn’t have a script.

The movie was released to critical and commercial acclaim in 2015, but has since been plagued by speculation that it didn’t have a legitimate script.

Said rumours originated after a picture of 3,500 storyboards laying out the film in almost total entirety emerged online.

But, speaking following similar rumour-debunking tweets from Mad Max: Fury Road co-writer Brendan McCarthy, director George Miller has assured fans that the film “of course” had a script.

AMC Is Selling Private Movie Showings At Some Theaters For $99

Movie theaters are struggling through the COVID-19 pandemic, and not even news that theaters will officially be open again in New York State can counteract the dearth of moviegoers and a wilted new movie release schedule. Regal Cinemas has already closed its theaters back down, and unless something major changes it seems moviegoers — and major box office smashes — will not return until there’s a coronavirus vaccine. But AMC is doing its best to fill theaters by letting some people live out their pre-coronavirus dreams of renting an entire theater out for yourself.

As CNN pointed out, the theater chain has started letting people reserve an entire screening for themselves starting at less than $100. AMC has a form on its website where you can narrow down what theaters are available, which showings you can snag and how much it will cost for up to 20 guests you know

Gal Gadot’s Casting in New Cleopatra Movie Draws Backlash, Sparks History Lesson

The post Gal Gadot’s Casting in New Cleopatra Movie Draws Backlash, Sparks History Lesson appeared first on Consequence of Sound.

Word came over the weekend that Gal Gadot would re-team with Wonder Woman director Petty Jenkins for a new movie about Cleopatra from writer Laeta Kalogridis. The filmmakers surely would have expected there would be celebration around a team of women telling the story of a legendary female ruler. Instead, there’s been backlash against the casting of Gadot as the Egyptian monarch.

“Hollywood has always cast white American acresses as the Queen of the Nile,” said one tweet (via Yahoo! Entertainment). “For once, can’t they find an African actress?”

Another Twitter user angrily pointed out the potential biting irony of casting Gadot, an Israeli, in an Arabic role. “Which Hollywood dumbass thought it would be a good idea to cast an Israeli actress as Cleopatra (a very bland looking one)

Why hasn’t there been a good ‘SNL’ movie in 20 years?

Forty-five years after premiering, “Saturday Night Live” is still just about as popular as ever because it lampoons current culture in a way that no one else can. Given that it’s one of the biggest entertainment properties in the world, it’s downright shocking that Lorne Michaels hasn’t milked its golden teet for box office dollars since the 2010 embarrassment “MacGruber” (a sequel thankfully seems to have stalled). It’s also strange to consider that a spin-off hasn’t scored an actual big screen laugh since “The Ladies Man” in the year 2000 (a laugh from me, at least; it didn’t fair as well at the box office). Before that, the Live From New York industrial laugh complex churned out five flops in a row. It begs the question, why don’t “SNL” characters translate to theaters?

Although some sketches do achieve eternal comedic glory, more often than not, age does not shine kindly … Read More

This Killer Documentary Is Seconds Away From Becoming The First Movie On Netflix To Achieve This Incredible Milestone

For several days straight, the latest Adam Sandler project, Hubie Halloween, has dominated Netflix. But before that Happy Madison production came along, there was another movie that was busy controlling the world’s most popular streaming platform—a project that is currently accomplishing feats that no other movie has ever accomplished on Netflix.

In fact, that movie is just one day away from doing something no other documentary has ever done on Netflix.

That movie? American Murder: The Family Next Door. Playing on the public’s rabid desire for true crime stories, this Netflix Original has commanded the streaming device’s Top 10 feature in ways no other documentary has in 2020, quite possibly making American Murder the most viral documentary to ever hit Netflix.

This is interesting because just last month, the social media-themed The Social Dilemma became the first documentary to dominate Netflix
