French Movie Theaters to Reopen on Dec. 15

France, which has been on lockdown since Oct. 30 to curb the second wave of the pandemic, will see its cinemas, theaters and museum reopen on Dec. 15. French president Emmanuel Macron unveiled some gradual measures to ease the lockdown on Tuesday during a televised address.

“The peak of the second wave of the pandemic has passed. Our efforts, your efforts have paid off,” said Macron. So far, 50,000 people have died from COVID-19 in France.

Starting on Nov. 28, small shops and religious sites will be allowed to reopen. On Dec. 15, theaters, cinemas and museums will reopen but a 9 p.m.-7 a.m. curfew will be restored. A 9 p.m. curfew was previously put in place in mid-October, before the country went into lockdown.

Oral History of Showtime’s 2003 The Reagans

When James Brolin was first approached by producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan to play Ronald Reagan in their 2003 miniseries “The Reagans,” he said he wasn’t interested.

“Neil and Craig are old friends and I immediately said to them, ‘I guess everybody else turned it down,” Brolin recalls. “But they said, ‘No, we think you’re the guy.’ I wouldn’t even read it. I thought me playing Reagan was absurd.”

Zadan, who passed away in 2018, and Meron eventually convinced Brolin to read the first 20 pages of the script. “It just tickled me,” Brolin says. “I went, ‘Wow, this isn’t just saying some lines. There’s something more to this.’”

There certainly was. What Brolin nor anyone involved with the project could have predicted at the time was the political storm that “The Reagans” would create. The CBS series was still filming Reagan loyalists and GOP pundits attacked the miniseries

Catherine O’Hara talks all things “Schitt’s Creek” in a new interview with Studio 10.

O’Hara is asked how she and fellow Canadian Eugene Levy met during the chat, with the pair having a friendship that dates back to the ’70s.

“I got a job as a waitress at Second City Theatre in Toronto and Eugene was in the cast. I auditioned a couple of times and finally got in to work with him,” the actress explains, adding, “We tried dating a couple of times. Everybody in the cast and everybody around Second City dated because there’s nothing more attractive or sexy I think than making each other laugh.”

adaptation of J.D Vance’s memoir underachieves

“Hillbilly Elegy,” J.D. Vance’s 2016 memoir, won praise for its insight into the forgotten folk whose poverty and hopelessness prompted them to embrace Donald Trump as a political force. That sociology aspect is mostly lost in Netflix’s dreary movie adaptation, which focuses on one family trapped in a circular pattern of dysfunction, and how the son escaped it.

Although Vance is ostensibly the center of this story — played by Gabriel Basso as a Yale Law student, and Owen Asztalos as a teenager — the movie is understandably preoccupied with the key women in his life, his mother Bev (Amy Adams) and foul-mouthed grandmother Mamaw (Glenn Close).

The story picks up with the older J.D. at Yale, interviewing for positions with snooty law firms and feeling conspicuously out of place alongside the blue-blooded, legacy

People Joking About What Movie Could Have Been

Ron Howard’s Hillbilly Elegy arrived on Netflix today, and despite the presence of powerhouse actresses Glenn Close and Amy Adams, let’s just say that not everyone’s feeling adaptation of author J.D. Vance’s best-selling book. As Uproxx’s Mike Ryan notes in his review, the movie arrives just a little too close to the presidential election when tensions between red states and blue states are through the roof. In a nutshell, it’s probably not the best time to rollout this story.

Plus, what movie can possibly compete with real life right now? Case in point:

With Hillbilly Elegy out in the wild, Twitter users are roasting the movie with jokes on what should have been, and they definitely have some thoughts:

But it wasn’t all red-hot dunks. One

Mortal Kombat 11 Adds 1995 Movie Skins In New DLC

The 1995 Mortal Kombat movie had a lasting impact on the video game series, with series co-creator Ed Boon teasing a new look at upcoming skins for Mortal Kombat 11 that references the cult classic film. Those have now been revealed in a new trailer, and the skins are now available as part of the MK Movie Skin Pack. It’s priced at $6 / £5.

These new skins won’t be just cosmetic either, as the actors who portrayed the characters will also return to reprise their roles from the movie. In September, dataminers uncovered voice samples from actors Christopher Lambert, Linden Ashby, and Bridgette Wilson as Raiden, Johnny Cage, and Sonya Blade respectively. You can behold the new look and sound for each of these characters in the new trailer.

The first homage to the Paul W.S. Anderson-directed movie arrived shortly after Mortal Kombat 11’s launch, as Shang Tsung was
