Box Office: ‘Ford v Ferrari’ Dashing to No. 1 While ‘Charlie’s Angels’ Flounders
Christian Bale and Matt Damon’s racing drama “Ford v Ferrari” is set to win the weekend box office by a long shot with an esimated $29 million from 3,528 domestic locations.

Elizabeth Banks’ “Charlie’s Angels” reboot could land in a distant second in its debut weekend with about $8.2 million, but the second frame of Roland Emmerich’s “Midway” may come out on top, with about $8.5 million.

“Ford v Ferrari,” which stars Bale and Damon as British driver Ken Miles and Carroll Shelby, respectively, took in nearly $11 million on Friday. Directed by James Mangold, the Fox film follows the pair as they attempt to build a car that can beat Ferrari at the behest of Henry Ford II (Tracy Letts) in the 1960s. Jez Butterworth, John-Henry Butterworth, and Jason Keller wrote the script, and Jon Bernthal, Caitriona Balfe, Josh Lucas, Noah Jupe, Remo Girone, and Ray McKinnon also star. Critics have favored the film,

Disney Plus Will Make ‘The Simpsons’ Available in Original Uncropped Format in Early 2020

Disney Plus Will Make ‘The Simpsons’ Available in Original Uncropped Format in Early 2020
Eep! After an outcry from “The Simpsons” aficionados, Disney has decided to offer classic episodes of the iconic animated sitcom on Disney Plus in their original 4-by-3 aspect ratio early next year.

The streaming service launched Nov. 12 in the U.S., Canada and the Netherlands with the full batch of “Simpsons” episodes in 16-by-9 HD format, which cropped out key details from older episodes — and angered many fans.

In a statement, Disney said it launched “The Simpsons” in 16:9 aspect ratio at launch “in order to guarantee visual quality and consistency across all 30 seasons.”

“Over time, Disney+ will roll out

John Woo Says Lupita Nyong’o No Longer Attached To ‘The Killer’ Remake, Talks ‘Face/Off’ Reboot, Chimes In On Superhero Movie Debate
There is good news and bad news about John Woo’s forthcoming remake of his 1989 crime drama The Killer. The good news is that it’s still being made. The bad news is that Lupita Nyong’o is no longer attached to the project. The iconic director shared the news about Nyong’o leaving the project with Deadline at the Hawaii International Film Festival, where he was receiving the festival’s Halekulani Lifetime Achievement Award.

“There was a scheduling problem because she’s so popular right now!” said Woo about Nyong’o’s exit. “We rewrote the script and it took so much time…she had to leave for another project.”

Deadline initially broke the news that Nyong’o was going to star in the film at Universal, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. It is unfortunate that the Us star had to drop out as many were looking forward

‘Loki’: Sophia Di Martino Joins Tom Hiddleston in Marvel Limited Series For Disney+
Sophia Di Martino is set to co-star opposite Tom Hiddleston in Marvel’s Loki limited series for Disney+, sources confirm to Deadline.

In the new Marvel Studios series, Hiddleston returns as the mercurial Loki, the Asgardian god of mischief and everyone’s favorite Marvel villain, in stories that take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Kate Herron is director, Michael Waldron is head writer for the series, slated for 2021 premiere.

One source close to the production hints that Di Martino may in fact portray a female incarnation of Loki and, in effect share the role with Hiddleston. Loki is a trickster god and a shapeshifter and, in the pages of Marvel Comics, has been portrayed at times in a female incarnation. In September, Marvel Press published a high-profile Ya novel by author Mackenzi Lee called Loki: Where Mischief Lies that presented the character as pansexual and gender-fluid.

Can Taylor Swift Really Be Banned From Performing Her Old Albums?

Can Taylor Swift Really Be Banned From Performing Her Old Albums?
The spat between Taylor Swift, her former label boss Scott Borchetta, and music mogul Scooter Braun has devolved into a sturm-und-drang public saga. Months after Swift panned Braun’s $300-million takeover of Borchetta’s Big Machine Label Group, the singer is saying that the two executives are preventing her from performing her older hits at the American Music Awards — but the validity of both the claim and the alleged action are murky.

On Thursday night, Swift publicly reignited her feud with Borchetta and Braun, who own the masters of her first six albums.

Vojtech Jasny, Award-Winning Czech Filmmaker, Dies at 93

Czech filmmaker Vojtech Jasny, director of “All My Good Countrymen,” which won the best director prize at Cannes in 1969, has died. He was 93.

According to the Associated Press, Slovacke divadlo, a theatre he frequently visited, said that Jasny died Friday, and a family representative confirmed his death to the Ctk news agency.

Jasny was a prolific part of the Czechoslovakian new wave in the ’50s and ’60s, though he left the country following its invasion by the Ussr in 1968. He directed several films while living in other European countries, and eventually relocated to Brooklyn, New York in the ’80s.

Though it received critical acclaim, “All My Good Countrymen” was banned in Jasny’s home country following the invasion due to its depiction of the brutal effect of Ussr communism on the Czech people.

Jasny was also presented with the Cannes Special Jury Prize in 1963 for “The Cassandra Cat.”

Film Review: ‘Noelle’ on Disney Plus

Film Review: ‘Noelle’ on Disney Plus
What do you get when you toss together Christmas cheer, Christmas kitsch, a fish-out-of-the-North-Pole setup swiped from “Elf,” and a plot that turns on whether Kris Kringle’s daughter, played as a perky na?f by Anna Kendrick, has what it takes to step into her dad’s snow boots? You get a plastic icicle like “Noelle,”

Long ago, it was called straight-to-tape. Then it was called straight-to-vod, and now it’s straight to your monthly subscription service. But if the delivery system has changed, the content remains very much the same. What you see a movie like “Noelle,” what the experience comes down to is: It’s something you’re not watching in a theater because most of us wouldn’t watch it in a theater. It wouldn’t be worth the effort. Whatever your idea of a sentimental connect-the-dots Christmas comedy is, this is sub that. At home, however,

Disney+ Vows to Fix ‘The Simpsons’ After Fan Outcry Over Cropped Jokes

  • The Wrap
After much fan outcry, Disney has announced that plans are being made to allow Disney+ users to watch classic episodes of “The Simpsons” in their original aspect ratio format.

When the new streaming service launched this past Tuesday, one of the big perks offered was the first 30 seasons of “The Simpsons.” But “Simpsons” fans complained that dozens of visual gags had been cropped out by switching older episodes from their original 4:3 ratio to a 16:9 widescreen ratio. “The Simpsons” didn’t actually make that jump until midway through their 20th season in 2009.

Film Review: ‘Scandalous: The Untold Story of the National Enquirer’

When grocery store shoppers snag a copy of Weekly World News (the rag responsible for the refuses-to-die “Bat Child” hoax), they know they’re getting fake news. But when they pick up the National Enquirer, it’s a far more ambiguous prospect.

Enquirer headlines are deliberately provocative, shouting details of the private lives of real people — including Elvis Presley, Elizabeth Taylor and Oprah Winfrey — from their strategic perch in checkout aisles across America. Over the course of nearly seven decades, the tabloid crushed the aspirations of at least one presidential contender (by publishing the photo that exposed Gary Hart’s extramarital affair) and crusaded to elect another, running negative coverage of Donald Trump’s political opponents, which the candidate conveniently referenced in his 2016 campaign.

A hard-hitting — and at times hard-to-stomach — documentary from “Thunder Soul” director Mark Landsman, “Scandalous: The Untold Story of the National Enquirer” subjects the tabloid to the

Cynthia Erivo Almost Gave Up Singing to Become a Spinal Surgeon

Cynthia Erivo Almost Gave Up Singing to Become a Spinal Surgeon
Before Cynthia Erivo went on to become a Tony and Grammy winner, she nearly gave up singing to be a spinal surgeon.

In her “Variety Studio: Actors on Actors” conversation with Alfre Woodard, the “Harriet” star said she had been singing since she was toddler. Her mother noticed she’d hum while eating her food when she was just 18 months old, and wrote down in her baby book that she’d go on to be a singer.

However, that natural talent was almost wasted when she was in high school.

“I had a real weird phase when I was about 16. I just stopped doing it for a second. I got shy,” Erivo said. “Everyone around me in my class, they wanted to be doctors, lawyers, nurses and I didn’t want that. I wanted to sing and act, but I felt weird because nobody else in my class would do it.

Former DNC Chair Donna Brazile Tells Bill Maher She Hopes Roger Stone ‘Roasts in Hell’

  • The Wrap
Donna Brazile did not mince words when it came to Roger Stone’s conviction during her appearance on “Real Time With Bill Maher,” saying that she hopes Donald Trump’s friend “roasts in hell.”

Brazile made the fiery comments on the show’s “Overtime” post-show on YouTube when Maher asked his panel whether they think Trump will grant Stone a presidential pardon. Stone was found guilty on Friday on seven federal criminal charges, including witness tampering and obstruction of justice, and could face up to 20 years in prison.

Embassy Official Confirms Overhearing Trump’s Damning Ukraine Phone Call

After former ambassador Marie Yovanovitch’s explosive testimony on Friday, another State Department official testified privately and told impeachment investigators he overheard a phone call between Us Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland and President Donald Trump during which the president asked whether Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky had agreed to investigate his political rivals, the Bidens.

A leaked copy of Holmes’s opening statement, obtained by CNN’s Manu Raju and Jeremy Herb, implicated Trump in very clear terms and blew up the Republican talking point that the only evidence Democrats had was “hearsay.

(Spoilers ahead for the entirety of “American Horror Story: 1984”)

Well, “Ahs: 1984” sure was a whole thing. Just a whole thing. I can’t say I’m overly upset that this unhinged and wildly uneven season is over, but I can’t quite move on with my life just yet.

Before I can forget all of this ever happened, I have a laundry list of things that happened in “Ahs: 1984” that were super irritating and frustrating to watch, and I feel like I’m gonna go crazy if I don’t try to share this madness with our dear readers. So let’s do this. I have 18 items right now. I’ll probably add some more because I keep thinking of new ones.

Everything You Need to Know About The Crazy ‘Last Christmas’ Twist Ending, Explained
(Major spoilers ahead, obviously, for the ending of “Last Christmas”)

Last Christmas” may not seem like much more than a bog-standard romantic comedy, but it really isn’t. What, did you think Paul Feig was gonna follow up the mind-bending “A Simple Favor” with something normal? Nope.

I should note before we get into this that I really enjoyed “Last Christmas.” So I’m not writing this as a way of mocking this movie. The twist we’re about to discuss is really wild mostly just because it defies your expectations about what a romantic comedy is and because most folks aren’t going to be coming into this thing expecting any kind of major twist. But, to me, “Last Christmas” isn’t just different from romantic comedy standards — it’s more than just a romantic comedy as well.

Does ‘Doctor Sleep’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?
Devotees of Stephen King have had a big year, with an absolute deluge of King adaptations hitting both the big and small screens. “It Chapter Two.” “Pet Sematary.” “In the Tall Grass.” “Castle Rock” season 2. Probably something else I’m forgetting because Box Office Mojo no longer helps when I need to remember all the Stephen King movies. And now, finally, “Doctor Sleep.”

Doctor Sleep” takes place 40 years after the events of “The Shining,” and we see Ewan McGregor as Danny Torrance, who is plagued by the memories of the Overlook Hotel and his own alcohol abuse issues. However, he soon meets Abra, (Kyliegh Curran), who has the same gift he does. At the same time, a cult called The True Knot, led by Rose the Hat (Rebecca Ferguson) is looking for new children to kidnap for something sinister. Mike Flanagan directed and also wrote the screenplay.

Cynthia Erivo (“Harriet”) and Alfre Woodard (“Clemency”) sat down for a chat for “Variety Studio: Actors on Actors.” For more, click here.

Cynthia Erivo and Alfre Woodard are at the forefront of this year’s awards conversation for two prestige films directed by black women. In Chinonye Chukwu’s “Clemency,” a movie that won the Sundance Grand Jury Prize in the U.S. Drama category, Woodard plays Bernadine Williams, a steely prison warden damaged by the task of overseeing executions. For Erivo, who catapulted to fame in “The Color Purple” on Broadway, her tour-de-force turn as Harriet Tubman in Kasi Lemmons’ “Harriet” is her debut lead role in a movie.
