In case you think Martin Scorsese vs. Marvel is the worst, most pointless ongoing argument on Film Twitter, allow me to introduce you to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut. It has been going strong for two years and counting, ever since Justice League was released with significant material added by Joss Whedon following Zack Snyder’s departure from the film Full Story

Knives Out premiered last night, and that extremely good cast showed up, looking extremely good. I am missing Lakeith Stanfield, an underrated hottie, but check out Chris Evans in that winter white suit with the striped knit tie. I stared at this suit in close zoom for a long time, trying to determine if the pattern is just a tone-on-tone stripe or, gasp, CORDUROY, and after much staring and some googling, it is, yes, CORDUROY. Full Story

Queen & Slim premiered last night in Hollywood. The film is Melina Matsoukas’s feature film directorial debut, from a script written by Lena Waithe, starring Oscar nominee Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith in her first lead role – and there’s been Oscar buzz about it for months, building on positive reaction out of select screenings since the summer. Full Story

Over the last couple of weeks, it’s been Charlize Theron in the spotlight, campaigning for Best Actress Oscar for her work in Bombshell as Megyn Kelly. There is another frontrunner, however, who is also an Oscar winner – that would be Renee Zellweger and I’m curious as to how she’s going to approach the next couple of months as we get closer and closer to Oscar nominations. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

IndieWire reported late on Friday that Universal told the New York Film Critics that Cats wouldn’t be ready for review until mid-December. The NY Film Critics vote on their best films of the year on December 4 which means that, if this is indeed true, Cats will miss out on consideration – and perhaps not just by the film critics but also by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, as in the Golden Globes, as the deadline for Globes screenings is also December 4.  Read Full Intro

In the previous post about Charlie’s Angels, I posted about the movies that aren’t for critics but people love them anyway. Here’s another example – Independence Day, the original, from 1996 starring Will Smith. Critics weren’t into it.

Charlie’s Angels opens this weekend and director Elizabeth Banks and stars Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska were in Hollywood last night for the premiere. At post time reviews for the film have not yet been released which, normally, is not a good sign. At the same time, I’m not sure this is a movie for critics. Full Story
