In perhaps the most horrifying moment in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri," Sam Rockwell's brutish cop casually beats the pulp out of a local advertising impresario before tossing him through a second-story window.
Director Tamra Davis dropped by Yahoo Studios to commemorate the film's birthday on Facebook Live and insisted that it had been an extremely professional, extremely sober film production.
Wonder Woman is no longer an honorary ambassador at the United Nations, following protests. It was announced in October that the veteran DC Comics character was to be used as part of an ’empowerment campaign’ for women and girls in 2017. “Although the original creators may have intended Wonder Woman to represent a strong and independent ‘warrior’ woman with a feminist message, the reality is that the character’s current iteration is that of a large breasted, white woman of impossible proportions,” the petition read.
Working with Clint is, as you might expect, a bit intimidating, says Tom Hanks. Hanks was under Eastwood’s directorial gaze for the movie ‘Sully’, in which he played feted pilot Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger, who safely landed his plane on the Hudson River in 2009 after it hit a flock of geese, saving the lives of all 155 passengers. Speaking on tonight’s ‘Graham Norton Show’, Hanks said: “You certainly don’t want one of those Eastwood looks.
Much like her ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ co-star Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot won over her detractors with her performance as Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder’s divisive superhero face-off movie. As such, hopes are high that Gadot will really come into her own when she takes the spotlight in the upcoming ‘Wonder Woman’ solo movie – the first big screen outing for the original super-heroine.

Lest you think filmmaking is all sunshine and lollipops, here are 10 reminders that showbusiness is an ugly business, and the family films which you hold dear to your heart were actually the cause of more than a little psychological scarring… ‘The Railway Children’ – The girl’s age was hushed up Casting producers on the 1970 children’s adventure 'The Railway Children’ liked actress Sally Thomsett’s audition for 11-year-old Phyllis so much, they were willing to overlook one fairly significant point – that she was actually 20 years old. Thomsett was three years old than her on-screen big sister, Jenny Agutter, but was treated like a child by crew members, who gave her sweeties for good behaviour. For starters, shooting on the movie very nearly led to tragedy, when Kym Karath, the actress playing Gretl, fell out of a boat and almost drowned – she couldn’t swim and Julie Andrews was unable to fetch her as planned. Andrews was disliked by co-star Christopher Plummer, who likened her presence to “being hit over the head with a big Valentine’s Day card every day”.
It’s one of the strange things about making a movie: you can create entire worlds inside a computer and have winged dragons facing off against giant fire-breathing robots, but you can’t show someone dialling a real phone number on screen. Ever since the 1950s, when you see someone dial or recite a phone number, chances are it’ll start with the numbers 555.

When director Beeban Kidron thinks back on her 1995 film To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar, the first thing that comes to mind is her memory of wolf-whistling at Patrick Swayze and Wesley Snipes as they walked down a Nebraska road, dressed in skirts and high heels. Indeed, one could say that everything about To Wong Foo, which premiered 20 years ago this month, represented a “really interesting gender moment” in Hollywood. At a time when the AIDS crisis still loomed large and homophobia was the cultural default, a heartwarming, Steven Spielberg-produced comedy about gay drag queens opened as the No. 1 movie in America.
