Is Hugh Grant Right About Movies Being Too Loud These Days?
According to The Guardian, sources close to the EU and Downing Street said an agreement could be published as early as tomorrow if the UK government gives the final Ok to terms being discussed ahead of the European Council summit beginning on Thursday (October 17).
Earlier today, it was widely reported that Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief negotiator, had given Johnson a deadline of midnight UK time Tuesday to propose a deal which could be signed off at the upcoming summit.
If talks do proceed positively, the possibility remains that a Brexit
Superhero movies have dominated mass media for the last 15 years, with no sign of slowing down. While Todd Phillips’ Joaquin Phoenix vehicle would like to position itself as an outsider of the genre, there’s no denying that its connection to DC Comics’ pre-existing intellectual property played a large part in the movie’s massive box-office success. In his emotionally vivid and delicately rendered short, queer filmmaker Jeremy Merrifield has crafted a timely critique of the superhero mythos, offering an alternative world that prizes softness and sensitivity over brute strength.
The film follows a 14-year-old boy named Sam (Jonah Beres) who is being bullied in between his school’s surreal active shooter drills. Amidst pressure to “hit back” and his closest friend abandoning him,
The actor, 59, went to see Todd Phillips’ origins story about the Batman super-villain at a local cinema in London last week, and complained that his trip had been “pointless” due to the theater’s deafening volume.
“Am I old or is the cinema Much Too Loud? Unendurable. Pointless. @vuecinemas,” Grant wrote on Twitter during the screening.
Publicists for the cinema company responded to the star the next day writing: “I’m so sorry for any disappointment felt with the volume levels in our venues Hugh,
"Am I old or is the cinema much too loud? Unendurable. Pointless," said Hugh Grant on social media, while tagging the U.K.'s Vue Cinemas. The company promptly reached out, thinking it might have been an isolated incident, but the many replies to the actor's original tweet agreed with him. Vue responded by stating that they, "regularly checked to ensure they comply with health and safety standards." This
Recently, Grant was going to see “Joker” on the big screen, but couldn’t help but leave disappointed.

Grant, whose career has bounced back lately thanks to roles in “Paddington 2” and “A Very English Scandal,” took to social media after seeing “Joker” to say he was unhappy with his experience because the film’s sound was unbearable. As Grant put it, “Am I old or is the cinema Much Too Loud? Unendurable. Pointless.”
The actor took his complaint to Vue Cinemas,
On last night’s episode of “Saturday Night Live,” host David Harbour (star of “Stranger Things”) hilariously plays a garbageman named Oscar, wherein “the once friendly neighborhood of Sesame Street has now become a haven of crime and corruption.” Many of your favorite “Sesame Street” characters make appearances, including Big Bird, Bert and Ernie, the Count, the Cookie Monster, and Elmo — all of whom appear in dressed-down, gritty fashion. Cast members Heidi Gardner, Chloe Fineman, Kenan Thompson, and more are all game to send up the Joaquin Phoenix-starring thriller that has set the world ablaze.
The skit impressively recreates the look and feel of “Joker” with,
Joker, the sinister hit starring Joaquin Phoenix, is dividing film critics. Hailed as a masterpiece by some, it has left others balking at its violence. For the actor Hugh Grant, the experience of watching at his local London cinema last week was “unendurable”, but not because of Todd Phillips’s menacing vision as director.
Grant felt high noise levels in the auditorium had made his trip to see Joker at the Vue in Fulham “pointless”, he complained on Twitter, adding: “The joke was on us”. “Am I old or is the cinema Much Too Loud?” the film star asked.
Matthew McConaughey stars in The Gentlemen as American expat Mickey Pearson, who's spent years building up a marijuana empire in London. Just when he decides that he'd like to cash out of the business for good, all hell breaks loose. Along with his close friends and associates, Mickey proceeds to face off against a "millennial firework" of a rival (Crazy Rich Asians alum Henry Golding) through schemes, bribery, kidnapping, and blackmail. Sounds like a party, no?
Rounding out the Robin Hood director's film - which he cowrote with Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davies - are actors Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, and Hugh Grant. Check out the slick, action-packed trailer for The Gentlemen above before it explodes into theaters on Jan. 24.

Right off the bat, this trailer makes it clear Guy Ritchie is very much back to his old ways. It feels cut from the same cloth as Snatch. What we're seeing here positions this as a criminal power struggle between Matthew McConaughey and
The film stars the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, Colin Farrell, and Hugh Grant.
Yes, that’s Hugh Grant.
It sounds awesome and looks like a throwback to some of Ritchie’s first couple of movies; Lock, Stock and Two Smokin’ Barrels and Snatch. Love those movies.
Here’s the official synopsis.
The Gentlemen follows American expat Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) who built a highly profitable marijuana empire in London. When word gets out that he’s looking to cash out of the business forever it triggers plots, schemes, bribery and blackmail in an attempt to steal his domain out from under him.
The movie is set for cinemas on 1st January. Here’s the new promo.
The trailer, released by Stx Entertainment on Wednesday, shows McConaughey as a London-based crime lord. His character Mickey Pearson is on the verge of retiring, thereby sparking a battle for his empire.
Hugh Grant (who plays Fletcher) and Charlie Hunnam (Pearson’s confidant) kick off the trailer with a tongue-in-cheek chat about the future of Pearson’s legacy. Fletcher says an “antagonist” (played by Henry Golding) is interested in making an offer for Pearson’s business, seemingly at all costs.
“The plot begins to thicken,” Fletcher says to Hunnam. “Now I can’t be specific about the heroes and zeroes, but our protagonist is a hungry animal. There’s a lot of money hanging in the balance. Our antagonist explodes on the scene like a millennial firework, and has indirectly started a war.
Guy Ritchie is course-correcting. After spending the last few years churning out largely anonymous big-budget Film seemingly to order, he has now returned to his roots. The Gentlemen is a Guy Ritchie film in the classic sense, in that it looks like a better-executed version of something that Danny Dyer would have starred in seven or eight years ago. It’s a crime caper, it’s set in London, and it stars everyone.
No, really, it stars everyone. And better yet, if the trailer is any indication, everyone gets to do doing something that’s differently but equally preposterous. Here, for your pleasure, is a ranking of all them from least preposterous to most.
The famed British director (Snatch, Sherlock Holmes) has assembled yet another cast of heavy-hitters for his latest crime thriller, The Gentlemen. The movie is set in London and stars McConaughey alongside Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, Colin Farrell, and Hugh Grant.
The movie centers on McConaughey’s American ex-pat Mickey Pearson’s impending retirement from the weed business in London. When word gets out that he’s looking to cash out of the industry forever it triggers plots,

Discussing Film is reporting that Ritchie is in talks to write and direct the upcoming film, “Vigilance.” The filmmaker is expected to reteam with his ‘Gentlemen’ studio partner, Miramax, for his latest crime thriller.

Director Guy Ritchie’s crime actioner, The Gentlemen, has Matthew McConaughey leading a stacked cast.
The Gentlemen is an upcoming feature that will see director Guy Ritchie return to his gritty tongue-in-cheek gangster movie wheelhouse after recent genre detours with this past May’s Aladdin and 2017’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. The Hertfordshire-hailing helmer worked here off a script that he wrote, which was conceptually co-conceived by Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davies.
While the Miramax-produced, Stx-distributed film, which touts Matthew McConaughey as its headliner, brandishes a classic gangster movie premise focused on an honorable rogue who’s looking to get out of his dangerous trade, the ensuing implications of this proverbial pin-pulling creates chaos – well, Guy Ritchie movie-type chaos.
