Hollywood news banter

Hosted by

Matt Belloni, editorial director of the Hollywood Reporter, joins Kim Masters to discuss top entertainment news stories of the week.

  • Justice League, the newest DC Comics Warner Bros movie is here, and it stands in stark relief to Disney's Marvel movies. The most recent Marvel movie, Thor: Ragnarok was a hit, and featured only a B-level character. Justice League is supposed to be the best of the best DC Comics characters, and as of tape time, only had 40 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
  • Speaking of Rotten Tomatoes, the ratings aggregator has a new Facebook show where they wait until the last minute to reveal a film's score. This might just be part of their new way to drum up attention going forward, but it sure looks like Warners was trying to keep the score hidden for as long as possible.
  • Two of the stars of Justice League, Gal Gadot and Ben Affleck skipped the press line on the red carpet, probably to avoid being asked questions about sexual harassment in the industry. Gadot has said she will not do another movie that's financed by Brett Ratner.
