After 10 years, the Zombieland gang’s all back together for the sequel, Zombieland: Double Tap. The original film’s stars — Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin, and Woody Harrelson — have all reunited for the new movie. Harrelson told us he wouldn’t have had it any other way. In fact, he thinks everybody looked at a sequel as an “all or nothing” proposition. (Click on the media bar below to hear Woody Harrelson)

For writer/director Rian Johnson, Knives Out was a pet project that was many, many years in the making. Once he’d finally earned the Hollywood capital to get the movie greenlit, he had no problem getting plenty of big stars to get on board, including Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Toni Collette, Christopher Plummer, and Jamie Lee Curtis. For her part, Curtis says she was really attracted to the unique way in which Johnson was handling a well-worn cinematic genre. (Click on the media bar below to hear Jamie Lee Curtis)
Fox News Channel, like it or not, has become a big part of the national conversation, especially when it comes to American politics. And, like American politics, it has gone through its fair share of scandals. Lately, the story and scandals of Fox News have captivated Hollywood, from Russell Crowe’s excellent miniseries The Loudest Voice to Nicole Kidman’s new movie, Bombshell. (Ironic that both lead actors, like Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch, are Australian.) In Bombshell, Kidman plays Gretchen Carlson, one of the several women within Fox News who exposed the rampant sexual harassment by CEO Roger Ailes. And while the film — which also stars Charlize Theron and Margot Robbie — is specifically about the Fox News scandal, Kidman believes the story in representative of many women’s stories in the #MeToo movement.

As far as MGM is concerned, The Addams Family is already a sequel-worthy hit after its strong opening weekend. That’s why they’ve already greenlit a second animated Addams, slated to open in October 2021. That’s great news for Charlize Theron, who had a great time working on this movie and will be excited to do it again. When we spoke to her about the movie — and the overall franchise, going all the way back to the cartoons — she told us she can clearly see the universal appeal of the family, quirks and all.
