‘The Post’ and ‘Wonder Woman’ among the nominees for the 2018 Producers Guild Awards



The Post PGA

The Producers Guild of America has announced the nominations for the 29th annual Producers Guild Awards and, interestingly enough, for the first time ever, there are 11 nominees for the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures due to a tie in voting among the guild’s 8,200 members.

Among the nominees for the Zanuck award is The Big Sick, Call Me by Your Name, Dunkirk, Get Out, I, Tonya, Lady Bird, Molly’s Game, The Post, The Shape of Water, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and Wonder Woman, all of which have a promising chance at landing a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars later this month, though that seems unlikely for the latter given its a snub at the Writers Guild Awards.

Tessa Thompson joins ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ co-star Chris Hemsworth in the ‘Men in Black’ spinoff



Tessa Thompson Thor

Fresh off the success of last year’s superhero smash hit Thor: Ragnarok, Tessa Thompson is set to reunite with her hammer-wielding co-star Chris Hemsworth in Sony’s long-in-the-works Men in Black spinoff, which is scheduled to hit theaters next summer on May 17, 2019, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Thompson’s casting falls in line with what we’ve been hearing in recent weeks: Sony wants the Men in Black spinoff to feature a white character, a black woman, and an older man in a story that will reportedly be set in London. Matt Holloway and Art Marcum are currently working on a script, while The Fate of the Furious helmer F. Gary Gray will assume directorial duties.


If you’re wondering as to whether or not Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith will be reprising their respective roles as Agent K and Agent J from the original Men in Black series, that’s not the case, though I wouldn’t be surprised to see one or the other or even both cameo in the spinoff.

I’m still a bit bummed that the studio’s plan to somehow have 21 Jump Street stars Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill crossover into the Men in Black universe never worked out, but it should certainly be more than exciting to see Hemsworth and Thompson team-up yet again. The only thing we’re wondering now is who are they going to cast in the role of this older man?

Stanley Kubrick auction lists never-before-seen cut of ‘The Shining’ and Jack Torrance’s jacket



The Shining Mike Flanagan

All work and no play will help you afford some of these items: Italian auction website Aste Bolaffti has a bunch of Stanley Kubrick memorabilia up for sale, courtesy of the legendary filmmaker’s former assistant Emilio D’Alessandro. Oh, and if you have $3,700 to blow, you can be the proud owner of a never-before-seen cut of The Shining.

According to the auction’s official catalog, this extremely rare cut of The Shining has an extended runtime and features “a scene in which Wendy, played by Shelley Alexis Duvall, carries Danny, played by little Danny Lloyd. These cuts, given by Kubrick to D’Alessandro, are particularly rare because the director notoriously burned all the leftovers at the conclusion of the editing.”


As if that weren’t enough, D’Alessandro has also listed the burgundy corduroy jacket Jack Nicholson wears in the film. The catalog describes it as having a “brown wooden elasticated waistband, shirt collar, 7 buttons, buttoned pockets on the front, L size, inside the label of Margaret Howell.” Sound good? It’ll set you back about $12,000.

Want to check out some Kubrick memorabilia for yourself? Head on over to the auction’s official website, where you can browse through the catalog and admire some fun items from some of Kubrick’s other films such as Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange, and Eyes Wide Shut.

‘Justice League’ star Henry Cavill bids farewell to his controversial mustache in hilarious tribute video



Henry Cavill

Indeed, as the title of this post suggests, Henry Cavill’s infamous mustache is gone, but certainly not forgotten. The Justice League and Mission: Impossible – Fallout star took to Instagram to share a moving tribute to that big ‘ole caterpillar that once sat upon his upper lip, assuring fans that his now clean-shaven face was not the product of CGI.

“Hello, don’t be alarmed, it’s me, Henry Cavill,” the actor says in the video, which was appropriately hashtagged with #ShavedButNotForgotten. “I know, it’s hard to recognize me without Kingstache. Sometimes, I even have trouble recognizing myself. It’s hard for me to admit this is not CGI. He’s really gone. I can tell you this, though: I will remember him, always.”

Warner Bros. wasn’t too thrilled with Cavill’s mustache, which, after spending around $25 million on Justice League reshoots, cost them even more money to digitally remove in post-production since Paramount, the studio behind Mission: Impossible, would not allow him to shave it. The final result, uh, was quite unfortunate and did not look very good. Like, at all.

You can see Cavill and Kingstache star alongside Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Angela Bassett, Alec Baldwin, and Michelle Monaghan in Mission: Impossible – Fallout when the film opens in theaters nationwide this summer on July 27. Check out Cavill’s video tribute in the embedded Instagram post below.
