A Rainy Day in New York trailer Elle Fanning and Timothee Chalamet
SPLASHNEWSONLINE

It was once thought that Woody Allen’s A Rainy Day in New York, the film at the center of the director’s $68 million lawsuit against Amazon, would never see the light of day given the rise of the #MeToo movement and renewed attention towards the sexual abuse accusations made against Allen by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow.

However, that no longer seems to be the case as a trailer for A Rainy Day in New York popped up on yesterday Allen’s official Facebook page, revealing our first look at the film starring Timothée Chalamet and Elle Fanning as a young couple who arrive in New York City to spend a weekend together.

It wasn’t up until January of last year, though, that literally almost everybody involved with this project slowly began to distance themselves from it, with many of the film’s stars donating their salaries to charity and Amazon Studios shelving the movie indefinitely.

This, of course, did not bode well with Allen, prompting him to take Amazon to New York federal court, where he’s asking for a $68 million payday in a case that is still pending.

Now, on one hand, I applaud Amazon for taking such great lengths to distance themselves from an accused child molester and all-around creep like Woody Allen. On the other hand, though, I say fuck them for even getting into business with an accused child molester and all-around creep like Woody Allen in the first place.

Amazon could’ve avoided this whole situation had they not signed a multi-million dollar five-picture deal with Allen to begin with, especially after he made that god-awful Crisis in Six Scenes miniseries for them a few years ago.

Case in point: don’t work with Woody Allen under any circumstances, folks.

Anyway, a couple of overseas distributors have said that they’re willing to release Allen’s movie despite his questionable past and the sexual abuse allegations against him, hence this new trailer for A Rainy Day in New York, which you can check out below:

How the hell do these ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ posters keep managing to get worse?

Spider-Man: Far From Home IMAX poster

I really, really hate to keep bringing this up, but the Spider-Man: Far From Home posters are fucking atrocious. Every single one of them. Actually, maybe these ones weren’t all that bad. However, I would say that the vast majority of the one-sheets Sony has put out for this otherwise good-looking movie so far have been straight up hideous.

What’s even more baffling than the fact that someone is actually getting paid to design these things that look like they were created using Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 is that they somehow keep managing to get progressively worse and worse.

Case in point, take a look at this new poster Sony put out the other day to promote Spider-Man: Far From Home‘s release in IMAX:

I mean, they can’t be serious with this shit, right? What exactly is going on down there at the bottom with Samuel L. Jackson and Jake Gyllenhaal? Why does it look like they were copied and pasted in from some very poorly lit still images? And did they really need to throw in that gigantic blue rectangle around Spider-Man that completely throws off the whole red color scheme of the entire poster? I just have so many damn questions.

At this rate, I don’t know if I can take another bad Spider-Man: Far From Home poster. Please just make it stop.

Bradley Cooper might be replacing Leonardo DiCaprio in Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Nightmare Alley’

Fresh off his breakup with Irina Shayk that definitely didn’t have anything to do with Lady Gaga, Variety is reporting that Bradley Cooper is in talks to take on the leading role in Guillermo del Toro’s adaptation of Nightmare Alley.

While the talks are still early and nothing has been set in stone quite yet, Cooper is looking to play Stanton “Stan” Carlisle, a young and ambitious con man who joins forces with a female psychiatrist for a mentalist act only to realize that she’s even more corrupt than he is.

Indeed, this is the same role that Leonardo DiCaprio was attached to play just a couple of months ago, but the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor reportedly “ended up passing on the project after a deal could not be reached.”

Say what you will about Cooper, but there’s no denying that the guy is most definitely at the top of his game right now despite not having much luck this past awards season and I think a collaboration between him and Del Toro will make for one hell of an exciting project.

No word yet on when we can expect to see Nightmare Alley hit theaters, but production on the film is expected to get underway this fall, so a 2020 release date seems more than likely at this point assuming no delays get in the way of things.

Blumhouse is remaking Bob Clark’s horror classic ‘Black Christmas’ with Imogen Poots set to star

Folks, I’m happy to report that Christmas came early this year and, honestly, I couldn’t have asked for a better gift than this: a remake of the genre classic Black Christmas is coming our way via Blumhouse on December 13, 2019.

The latest remake of the Bob Clark classic is being directed Sophia Takal from a script she co-wrote along with April Wolfe and follows a group of sorority girls who are, one by one, being killed off by an unknown stalker at Hawthorne College.

However, as the film’s official logline so greatly puts it, “the killer is about to discover that this generation’s young women aren’t willing to become hapless victims as they mount a fight to the finish.”

Green Room star Imogen Poots will lead the film’s cast, which also includes the likes of Aleyse Shannon, Brittany O’Grady, Lily Donoghue, and Caleb Eberhardt. Jason Blum, the producer behind Jordan Peele’s Get Out and David Gordon Green’s Halloween, also serves as a producer here along with Ben Cosgrove and Adam Hendricks.

Notably, this will be one of the first Blumhouse features to be directed by a woman (the studio is also developing a remake of The Craft with Zoe Lister-Jones set to write and direct) and it’s also the second time Black Christmas is being remade.

As you may remember, Glen Morgan’s 2006 remake (which took on the abbreviated title of Black X-Mas) starred Katie Cassidy, Michelle Trachtenberg, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and was a complete and utter mess thanks to creative geniuses Bob and Harvey Weinstein, who had more than one issue with Morgan’s script.

Given everyone involved here, though, it seems to safe say that Blumhouse’s take on Black Christmas is going to be fucking great and I can’t wait to see it hit theaters on its very appropriate Friday the 13th release date later this year.
