FROM Scott Mantz
Friday Movies It’s Friday , which means it’s time to take a look at the new movies coming out this weekend. There’s an animated Disney film, Tina Fey in Afghanistan, the latest Terrence Malick and a big president-in-peril thriller.
Friday Movie Roundup: ‘The Witch’ and More We’ve got a pretty intense lineup of movies to talk about this week. We’ve got a horror film about witches in puritan New England, a Jesse Owens biopic and the devastation of indigenous tribes at the hands of Colombian rubber barons in the Amazon. Our critics give their takes in our regular Friday film roundup.
Friday Film: 'The Big Short,' 'Legend' and More It’s a hunky white dude fest at the movies this weekend, with the release of The Big Short, Legend and other new titles. We discuss what’s new in theaters today in our regular Friday film segment.
Friday Film: 'Entourage,' 'Insidious: Chapter 3' and More It’s a bro-down this weekend at the movies. Entourage, the movie based on the HBO series, is coming. Or, if you’re not into male entitlement, perhaps Spy with Melissa McCarthy is the movie for you. We talk about those and more new releases in this week’s Friday film segment.
New Movie Releases Finally, a little variety at the movie theater this weekend. Coming out today: a family-friendly animated flick, a raunchy comedy and a movie about 40-somethings trying to relive an imagined youth.
The Business of Bond The 24th James Bond film has just been announced. “Spectre” will once again star Daniel Craig as a brooding, muscle-bound 007. Sam Mendes, who directed the last film, “Skyfall,” is back to direct. We take a look at how the franchise has been able to remain successful for over half a century.
Dumb and Dumber To, and More in Movies It’s that time of year when we already know everything there is to know about the new releases at the box office, because they debuted at festivals months ago. With a few exceptions, that is: We discuss one, Dumb and Dumber To, plus other flicks hitting the big screen this weekend in our weekly film roundup.
Dolphins, SNL Twins, and Tom Hardy with a Brooklyn Accent In theaters this weekend: A dolphin with teenage handlers and a prosthetic tail. Two stars from Saturday Night Live. Tom Hardy with a Brooklyn accent. And Idris Elba as a serial killer. We get the latest in our weekly film roundup.
Securing Public Spaces, Super Wealthy Asians Vehicles are increasingly being used as weapons, as seen in the London Bridge attack over the weekend and in New York’s Times Square last month. The Compton-based company Calpipe is designing security bollards to help make public spaces safer. And novelist Kevin Kwan satirizes the “crazy rich” Asian jet set and their luxurious tastes in his latest book, “Rich People Problems.”
Terrorism in London: Lessons for the US This weekend’s terrorist attack in London left seven people dead and almost 50 injured. London police fatally shot the attackers, and ISIS claimed responsibility.
Industry insights and lessons learned from memorable guests We have interesting guests on The Business, and sometimes our conversations are too long to fit into one show. This week we give you stories that were too good to leave on the cutting room floor, including some sharp insights on making it in the industry from David Mandel, David Simon, Shawn Levy and Matt Reeves.
