Hollywood News Banter

Hosted by

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

  • This season at the box office may be remembered as the summer of "sequel-itis." Sequels and reboots from Alice Through the Looking Glass, to Star Trek Beyond to Ghostbusters to Neighbors 2 all underperformed. Audiences are saying they want original content, but studios are hesitant to take the risk.
  • With the kick-off the the Venice and Telluride film festivals, and Toronto coming up, we’ve officially entered the fall awards season. For people craving some grown-up, art house fare, they may find it in upcoming films like La La Land and Moonlight.
