'Bohemian Rhapsody' to World Premiere at London's Wembley Arena

'Bohemian Rhapsody' to World Premiere at London's Wembley Arena
Bohemian Rhapsody, the upcoming biopic about the rise of the rock band Queen and its legendary lead singer Freddie Mercury, is to world premiere at – almost – the same venue as arguably their most famous live performance.

The film — starring Rami Malek as Mercury — will screen Oct. 23 at London's See Arena, Wembley, part of the same complex as Wembley Stadium where Queen played in front of 72,000 people for the 1985's Live Aid concert, once voted the greatest live show of all time by a large selection of musicians and critics.

Bryan Singer Isn’t Ruling Out Working With Kevin Spacey Again: ‘It Depends on the Project’

Bryan Singer Isn’t Ruling Out Working With Kevin Spacey Again: ‘It Depends on the Project’
Gabriel Byrne made headlines earlier this week when he told The Sunday Times that production on Bryan Singer’s “The Usual Suspects” had to be shut down because of Kevin Spacey’s “sexually inappropriate behavior” on set. However, Singer tells TMZ in a new video interview that Byrne was not telling the truth.

“I don’t know. It baffles me,” Singer said about why Byrne would say production shut down. “I’ll ask him when I see him, and I do run into him quite often.”

According to Singer, “The Usual Suspects” only shot for 35 days, which meant there was no opportunity for the production to be delayed. Singer even shot two scenes in his backyard so that the production could stay on track and not face any time delays.

Hellboy gets January 2019 release date

Lionsgate has announced that it has set a January 11th 2019 release date for Hellboy (formerly titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen), its upcoming big screen reboot of the Dark Horse comic book series. That will put the film in competition with the sci-fi Ad Astra, and the recently announced comedy What Men Want.

Hellboy is being directed by Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones) and sees Stranger Things star David Harbour taking on the title role alongside Ian McShane (American Gods) as Professor Broom, Sasha Lane (American Honey) as Alice Monaghan, Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil) as the Queen of Blood, Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii Five-o) as Major Ben Daimio, Penelope Mitchell (The Vampire Diaries) as Ganeida, Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda) as Lady Hatton, Brian Gleeson (mother!) as Merlin, and Alistair Petrie (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) as Lord Adam Glaren.

Holy Hell: See the First Photo of Stranger Things Star David Harbour as Hellboy

Image Source: Lionsgate and Getty / J. Kempin The first official look at the Hellboy reboot arrived in September, and we have to say that we're still pleasantly surprised. Stranger Things star David Harbour is taking over for Ron Perlman in the film, due out in 2018, and it looks like the character has gotten a few updates to how he looked in the 2004 and 2008 originals. The demonic hero appears to have ditched his trademark trenchcoat and grown out his hair, for starters. And how about that Right Hand of Doom? Instead of the traditional stone fist that Hellboy uses to battle the occult, the new one looks like it's made out of some kind of metal (and has taken quite the beating). In addition to Harbour, the reboot stars Milla Jovovich as Nimue the Blood Queen, Merlin's consort who wants to bring about the end of the world (Nbd). Hellboy journeys

When It Comes to the Hellboy Reboot, the Devil's in the Details

Image Source: Lionsgate Despite the fact that the most recent Hellboy movie only just came out in 2008, a reboot is already in the works. The hot new take on the popular comic-book series that first hit shelves in 1993 promises to be very different from the original cinematic adaptation, originally helmed by Guillermo del Toro. This time around, the creative minds behind the project are starting from scratch. Curious about what's already been locked down? We've gathered all the intel, from the writers to the release date. 1. The Star No, Ron Perlman is not returning to reprise his role as the demonic titular character. Back in May, when the reboot was first announced, Stranger Things star David Harbour was already attached to the project. We're here for it. Just saying. 2. The Other Major Players The casting process for Hellboy began with controversy. Ed Skrein was originally tapped to play the role

Hellboy Reboot Gets a 2019 Release Date

Hellboy Reboot Gets a 2019 Release Date
Hellboy will be making his way back to the big screen in just over a year. Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment, who have partnered for the production of the upcoming Hellboy reboot, have locked down a January 11, 2019, release date for the movie. This date was initially reported back in September but, at the time, Lionsgate said that the date was inaccurate and that no date had been decided on. Apparently, they liked the date anyway and have placed Hellboy as the first highly-anticipated movie to be released in 2019.

January, historically, has been something of a dumping ground for studios. However, in recent years, more and more blockbuster-level movies are being released and studios are having a tougher time cramming them into the summer movie season or desirable holiday release dates. So, what used to be a wholly terrible month for movie fans has seen more quality releases in recent years. Hellboy

Mister Rogers Documentary Gets Summer 2018 Release Date

Focus Features has acquired the worldwide rights to Won't You Be My Neighbor, the new documentary about the life and work of Mister Fred Rogers.

It is set to be released on June 8, 2018. Focus chairman Peter Kujawski made the announcement today, with the following statement.

"Morgan once again avoids making a traditional biodoc and instead takes us behind the curtain to see how Fred Rogers navigated the cultural and social issues of the second half of the twentieth century with his own brand of forward-thinking, compassionate wisdom far beyond his time. Mister Rogers makes us all want to be better people, and we couldn't be more proud to be a part of telling his story today."

‘Baby Driver’: How Edgar Wright’s Sound Team Choreographed Squealing Brakes Against Pop Classics
Edgar Wright’s “Baby Driver” offers a sound design that orchestrates car chases, gun fights, police sirens, and ambient noises, choreographed to music. With the narrative conceit that getaway driver Baby (Ansel Elgort) listens to a loud musical playlist (including Beck, The Damned, and Queen) as a defense against tinnitus, we see three heists from his aural perspective.

This meant a learning curve for Wright’s go-to supervising sound editor/sound designer, Julian Slater. “I learned a new way of sound designing to the rhythm of the music, where each track is broken down to its tempo and plucked and pitched to a particular action,” he said. “But the music needed to sound great thematically.”

It started with the script, which came with a .pdf file of the musical tracks along with a rough sound mix. Tracking Baby’s life to the beats of the tunes that get him through

‘Stranger Things’: Bob’s Alternative Fate, Will the Killer, and More Secrets From the Show

‘Stranger Things’: Bob’s Alternative Fate, Will the Killer, and More Secrets From the Show
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from the first two seasons of “Stranger Things.”]

Stranger Things” isn’t afraid to kill off certain expendable characters, but in Season 2, the show almost bumped off one beloved person even earlier. While fans were horrified to see nerdy good guy Bob (Sean Astin) become a snack for a pack of hungry demodogs in the penultimate episode, the Duffer Brothers had actually considered a different storyline in which he would’ve died much earlier… and at the hands of someone he knew.

On the Netflix after-show “Beyond Stranger Things,” the Duffers revealed that originally, Will Byers (Noah Schnapps) was going to become gradually evil as he was possessed, be fully evil by Episode 4, and then kill someone midway through the season.

‘The Crown’ Season 2 Trailer: Claire Foy Shows It’s Still Hard to Be the Queen

‘The Crown’ Season 2 Trailer: Claire Foy Shows It’s Still Hard to Be the Queen
When last we left Queen Elizabeth (Claire Foy), Prince Phillip (Matt Smith), and the rest of the royal bunch on Netflix’s “The Crown,” is was turmoil that reigned. Increasing disputes over the Suez Canal, a Prime Minister resignation, and the continuing pressures of royal demands all threatened to overtake whatever happiness lingered below the show’s surface.

From the looks of things in the latest official trailer for Season 2, a lot of those concerns remain. As one of TV’s preeminent prestige dramas, “The Crown” has somehow found a way to turn well-documented history into a suspenseful on-screen narrative. (And give Phillip a big beard in the process!)

‘Alias Grace’: An All-Women Team (With Some Inspiration From ‘American Psycho’) Created the Anti-‘Downton Abbey’

‘Alias Grace’: An All-Women Team (With Some Inspiration From ‘American Psycho’) Created the Anti-‘Downton Abbey’
“She feels like prey. She lives in a completely predatory world. Her job is to not respond to endless amounts of harassment and violence.”

This is how writer and producer Sarah Polley describes the central character of the Netflix/CBC miniseries “Alias Grace.” This is also a statement that makes the based-on-real-events story of Grace Marks (Sarah Gadon), a 19th-century Canadian woman who spent years in prison after being convicted of murder, infinitely relatable to many women yesterday and today, but hopefully less so tomorrow.

“I think a lot of what [‘Alias Grace’] explores is what it meant to be a woman and how much it meant to be a young woman at that time, but also what it means to be a young woman at any time, when especially it’s exaggerated in Grace Marks’ case,” Polley told IndieWire. “I think a lot of women can relate to that, right now

8 Lgbt Filmmakers Who Are Having a Great Year

8 Lgbt Filmmakers Who Are Having a Great Year
As we gear up for an awards season ripe with many quality queer films, it’s important to remember smaller successes who may get lost in the shuffle. Lgbt-themed film festivals Outfest and Frameline kicked off the summer, while New York’s own NewFest wrapped up last week. It’s always thrilling to see a gay film get awards attention, like the kind lavished on Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me By Your Name” and foreign language contender “Bpm (Beats Per Minute).” But it’s been a banner year for nuanced queer films across the board, and especially ones from queer-identified filmmakers.

From up-and-comers making splashy debuts, to longtime favorites who have stepped up their game, the filmmakers on this list represent a varied swath of not only the Lgbt spectrum, but vastly different artistic styles. That means they have the potential to reach different audiences — and open up perspectives across demographics.

‘The Crown’ Gets a New Queen + More News From the U.K.

Welcome to the Backstage roundup of the most important industry news from across stage and screens. Here’s everything you might have missed last week but definitely need to know. “The Crown” gets a new queen. Whilst everyone else was watching the second series of “Stranger Things”, the acting industry was trying to work out the possible supporting cast around Olivia Colman’s Queen in the series 3 and 4 of Netflix’s “The Crown”. Creator Peter Morgan is quoted by E! as saying that the intention was to change casts all along, adding, “you can't ask someone to act middle-aged. Someone has to bring their own fatigue to it. The feelings we all have as 50-year-olds are different than the feelings we all have as 30-year-olds. That informs everything we do." Colman, who replaces Claire Foy’s Queen, is the only confirmed cast member for the next series but rumour abounds

‘Boo 2! A Madea Halloween’ Review: Tyler Perry’s Sexist, Homophobic Comedy Will Not Stand in 2017

‘Boo 2! A Madea Halloween’ Review: Tyler Perry’s Sexist, Homophobic Comedy Will Not Stand in 2017
Tyler Perry’s “Boo 2! A Madea Halloween” would be tone deaf, lacking in plot, and almost entirely humorless in any year. That is happens to arrive in theaters amid a cascade of sexual assault survivors sharing their stories about sexual assault doesn’t help its case. Perry has built his slice of a Hollywood empire profiting off the cheap laughter of the most insidious homophobic impulses in society — the ones that tell people there is nothing funnier than a man in a dress. “Boo!” is no exception.

Still, Perry is a versatile character comedian. Madea, the wise-cracking old lady he has played in drag for 15 years, is the movie’s central figure and also its funniest. Perry also plays her “creepy old man” brother, Joe, whose only breaks from slobbering over teenage girls are to call Madea “dude” or “man.” Perry’s discomfort with Madea’s drag is so palpable,
