R.I.P., Robert Forster (1941-2019), Oscar-nominated actor.



Robert Forster's career in film began in the late 1960s, and for about three decades he worked steadily in projects of varying levels of prestige and prominence, including the lead in Haskell Wexler's 1969 drama Medium Cool and a couple of cult TV roles in the early 1970s.

In 1997, he became one of the many older actors to experience a career boost courtesy of Quentin Tarantino, who cast him opposite Pam Grier in Jackie Brown. Forster was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Forster would return to the Elmore Leonard oeuvre a few years later when he played a supporting role in the ABC television drama Karen Sisco. Collaborations with David Lynch (Mullholland Drive, Twin Peaks: The Return) and Alexander Payne (The Descendants) were also to follow, as well as television guest roles on shows like Heroes and Breaking Bad.[Recent media spoilers.]The very day of Forster's death saw the release of El Camino, in which he plays a pivotal role.

Gal Gadot launches production firm; first film will be biopic of Irena Sendler



Gal Gadot and husband Jaron Varsano have launched Pilot Wave, their new production company.
“As producers, we want to help bring stories that have inspired us to life,” Gadot and Varsano said. “Pilot Wave will create content that promotes the perspectives and experiences of unique people and produce impactful stories aimed at igniting the imagination.”

From source: Irena Sendler tells the harrowing story of a woman’s defiant stand against Nazi Germany’s occupation of Poland and the incredible network she developed to care for and save 2500 Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto. Following her arrest by the Gestapo during the height of the war, the drama becomes a race against time to save not only herself but the identities of the hidden thousands who’ll face certain execution.

Justine Juel Gillmer (The 100, Badlands) is writing the screenplay. No word on director.

I had sadly not known of Irena Sendler before this. Her Wiki is fascinating. A truly brave and smart woman. She passed in 2009 at 98 years young.

Early weekend box office report: Gemini Man flops; Parasite shines

The Friday box office estimates are in and things look rough for Gemini Man.

The effects heavy Will Smith starrer scored only $7.5 million for an estimated $19-20 million weekend. The studio was hoping for $30 million so unless international numbers pull through, this will be a big flop.

Meanwhile, Joker is looking to pull another huge weekend with $60 million, only dropping 37% from its opening last week, an insanely impressive number.

On the platform release side, Parasite, aka the best film of 2019, is scoring big time with $357,000 in 3 theaters, giving it the highest per-theater average since La La Land opened three years ago and one of the best ever for a foreign language picture.
