Dakota Johnson Makes Directorial Debut With Coldplay’s ‘Cry Cry Cry’ Video
“Peanut Butter Falcon” and “Fifty Shades Freed” star Dakota Johnson has made her directorial debut with Coldplay’s music video for a doo-wop rendition of “Cry Cry Cry” off their latest album Everyday Life.

The video, for which Johnson collaborated with director Cory Bailey, was filmed in London’s Rivoli Ballroom and premieres today.

Johnson and Coldplay front-man Chris Martin have been dating since 2017, though the relationship has remained largely private.

Johnson most recently had a cameo in Sundance contender and music mockumentary “The Nowhere Inn,” in which she played herself and also starred in 2019’s “The Peanut Butter Falcon.”

The star went viral late last year, grabbing headlines for calling out Ellen DeGeneres’s bluff for not attending her birthday party in a painfully awkward interview on the talk show.

“Cry Cry Cry” was choreographed by Celia Rowlson-Hall, known for her inventive and modern choreography work on HBO’s

‘Peter Rabbit 2’ Hops Closer To Easter 2020

  • Deadline
Updated, 10:33 Am: Sony’s Peter Rabbit 2 is jumping away from its Feb. 7 release date to April 3, which is nine days before Easter. MGM’s 007 film No Time to Die will own the Easter frame. On the upside, with spring breaks the advance runway before Bond is an advantage for Peter Rabbit 2, as it plays to a younger crowd. However, per Comscore, the April 3-5 period is crowded with Warner Bros. claiming an untitled release during that time, Paramount’s Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani movie The Lovebirds, and finally Fox/Marvel’s much delayed The New Mutants. Sony has the Kevin Hart drama Fatherhood on April 3.

Previously, May 4, 2018: Peter Rabbit scored plenty of lettuce for Sony Pictures this year, and now the studio wants more. Sony said late this afternoon that it has greenlighted Peter Rabbit 2, which will be hopping in on February 7, 2020, nearly two years to

Ryan Reynolds reveals why he wanted to do Pokemon: Detective Pikachu

Ryan Reynolds has revealed why he wanted to make a PG-rated Pokemon: Detective Pikachu despite recently being more commonly associated with R-rated films such as The Hitman’s Bodyguard and Deadpool.

Actors tend to attach their names to movie for several different reasons. To work with a specific director, the quality of the script, if the film is award-worthy, or the price tag for agreeing to do the movie. However, the reason Reynolds decided to lend his voice to the titular character in Detective Pikachu was he wanted to make a movie that his kids could actually watch.

In a statement (via: Cinema Blend), Reynolds claimed, “I was excited to do a film that my kids would love. I don’t do a lot of films that are not rated-r. For me, that’s a big one.”

Reynolds currently has two kids with Blake Lively (with a third on the

Pokemon: Detective Pikachu fails to topple Warcraft as the highest-grossing video game movie of all time

Despite reports this week that Legendary Pictures’ Pokemon: Detective Pikachu has pushed its worldwide gross to $436 million to become the highest-grossing video game adaptation of all time, it seems there’s been some miscalculations on Yahoo! Movies‘ part and the first ever live-action Pokemon movie will instead have to settle for second place.

As reported by Box Office Mojo, Detective Pikachu currently sits on $429.5 million. That leaves it some $4.2 million shy of 2016’s Warcraft, a figure that it has absolutely no chance of accruing given that it made just under $24,000 this past weekend from its six remaining international markets.

Although Warcraft tanked in North America with just $47.4 million, the Duncan Jones-directed fantasy performed well internationally, particularly in China. Detective Pikachu does hold the crown domestically though with its $143.5 million total putting it above 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider ($131.2 million).

Marcia Gay Harden Joins ‘Pink Skies Ahead’ Film At Stampede
Marcia Gay Harden has signed on to join Pink Skies Ahead opposite Jessica Barden, Henry Winkler, Rosa Salazar, Lewis Pullman, and Devon Bostick. The Kelly Oxford-helmed film marks the first feature from Greg Silverman’s Stampede.

The Lion King on Track to Rule Summer Box Office with Record-Breaking Debut

Disney's upcoming reimagining of The Lion King is poised to be one of the biggest hits of the summer, if early box office tracking is to be believed. This is one of three similar live-action remakes that Disney has coming out in 2019. Well, there has been some debate about whether or not this qualifies as live-action, since all of the animals, real as they may look, are being created using CGI. In any event, the new take on the animated classic is set to hit theaters in July and it looks like this one is going to be a massive moneymaker.

Early box office tracking has the movie bringing in between $180 and $230 million on opening weekend. Even on the low end, that would mean The Lion King would have the biggest opening weekend for one of these Disney reimaginings to date. At present, 2017's Beauty and the Beast is on top,

Clarke revealed she was offered the part of Anastasia Steele, the lead protagonist in the erotic thriller, while taking part in The Hollywood Reporter‘s Drama Actress roundtable. The 32-year-old actress praised Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson, but ultimately opted to turn down the role over the excessive nude scenes.

Pokemon: Detective Pikachu scores biggest video game movie opening ever

It may have failed to unseat Avengers: Endgame from the top of the box office charts, but Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ Pokemon: Detective Pikachu still enjoyed a very healthy opening this past weekend.

Domestically, Detective Pikachu earned $58 million, topping the $47.7 million opening for 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider to score the biggest opening weekend for a movie based upon a video game property.

Internationally, the Ryan Reynolds-headlined film has grossed a further $112.4 million for a worldwide total of $170.4 million, which puts it ahead of the five theatrically released animated Pokemon movies, the biggest of which was 1999’s Pokemon: The First Movie ($163.6 million).

Ryan Reynolds “leaks” Pokemon: Detective Pikachu

Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter late last night to alert Warner Bros. that the live-action Pokemon: Detective Pikachu has leaked online ahead of its official release this Friday.

Publicly directing people to a pirated copy of your movie when you have some 13.6 million followers probably isn’t the smartest movie – although, as the 4.5 million plus viewers who quickly clicked through to YouTube will have discovered – this isn’t so much a world class blunder by Reynolds as a clever marketing ploy.
