Just days after television host John Oliver confronted Dustin Hoffman during a tense Q&A following a screening of Wag the Dog, another woman has come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct. Kathryn Rossetter, who starred opposite Hoffman in the 1983 Broadway production of Death of a Salesman and later in the 1985 television adaptation, has shared her story of the alleged, repeated sexual harassment, groping and assault she endured at the hands of the actor.
After numerous women accused comedian Louis C.K. of sexual harassment, The Orchard immediately nixed plans to premiere and release the black-and-white film he shot in secret over the summer. I Love You, Daddy, which was set to hit theaters on November 17, was shelved as C.K. released a public statement acknowledging his history of predatory behavior with female peers and colleagues. C.K. has remained silent in the weeks since, but according to Deadline, the comedian and director is closing a deal to buy the rights to I Love You, Daddy back from the distributor.
During the pivotal scene in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Colin Farrell’s Percival Graves is revealed to be none other than the storied villain Grindelwald, played by Johnny Depp in a short cameo. The casting of Depp, who will have a more prominent role moving forward, has drawn ire from fans and journalists alike due to his alleged physical and verbal abuse of ex-wife and actress Amber Heard. While women everywhere are being empowered to break their silence after suffering years of misogynistic abuse, J.K. Rowling has broken hers to stand in support of an abuser.
The first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War dropped this week, offering fans a sneak peek at Marvel’s biggest film to date. Featuring the largest collection of MCU characters to appear together on screen, Joe and Anthony Russo’s super-sequel will pit our heroes against Thanos in a massive war over the fate of the universe. As such, we can expect a few of our favorite superheroes to bite the dust, but we now know of at least one more who will survive the Infinity War to appear in Avengers 4. Potential spoilers ahead!
Sony has set a release date for Quentin Tarantino’s new film, which is sorta-kinda-not-really about the Manson Family murders. The project is the acclaimed filmmaker’s first without the involvement of disgraced former Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein. After Tarantino parted ways with Weinstein in the wake of numerous sexual harassment and assault allegations, he set up shop with Sony, which will release his untitled (or title yet-to-be-revealed) film in 2019.
Film marketing in other countries is typically innocuous. When there’s a new Star Wars or Marvel movie coming out, the international trailers and posters might give us a glimpse at previously unreleased footage or feature characters that haven’t been as prominent in the US marketing. For the most part, international marketing isn’t too different from the promotional materials released stateside. But then again, there’s the curious case of these Chinese posters for Justice League, which feature the team slaughtering other Marvel movie superheroes.
Pop culture nerds undoubtedly have a laundry list of things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving — maybe it’s Jeff Goldblum, or another great (and overwhelming) year of peak TV, or a new Star Wars sequel. For some of you, it might be this first teaser for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (oh, they’re just going to stick with that title? OK), which features Chris Pratt interacting with a cute little velociraptor. Although…if we’ve learned anything from these people and their terrifying attempts at playing god with “amusement” parks, it’s that you should never, ever get close to these things.
It’s no secret that Wonder Woman was such a hit that Warner Bros. (very wisely) pushed Gal Gadot’s DC superhero front and center in the marketing for Justice League. Unfortunately, fans hoping for a worthy follow-up to the Amazon warrior’s solo film may be fairly disappointed — not by her presence, which is understandably somewhat limited though always welcome, but by the way Diana Prince is presented in comparison to her masculine super-peers.
Allegations of sexual misconduct and assault continue to mount against Hollywood men and politicians in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Following this morning’s allegations against Senator Al Franken, another prominent and beloved figure has been accused of sexual assault: Sylvester Stallone. According to a recently unearthed police report, the iconic action star and his bodyguard allegedly raped a 16-year-old girl in the 1980s.
