Here's what will likely be your only glimpse into Kevin Spacey's abandoned Gore Vidal biopic

August saw the sad, quiet release of a movie called Billionaire Boys Club, a crime drama featuring disgraced actor Kevin Spacey in a supporting role. It made just $1,349 domestically, and Spacey’s latest project stands to make much, much less. In fact, Netflix’s desire to disassociate from the actor entirely—they …

Superman returns, but he forgot to bring the action and the fun back with him

If Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins was the first movie to really take superheroes seriously, then maybe Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns, released the following year, was the first movie to take superheroes too seriously. Singer even took the non-serious parts of his story too seriously. In retrospect, it’s hard to…

House Of Cards declares “the reign of the middle-aged white man is over”

No point beating around the bush, we guess.

Robin Wright says she didn't really know Kevin Spacey: "We were coworkers"

House Of Cards will return for its sixth and final season later this year, with Robin Wright running things on and off screen. There’s still a President Underwood in the show’s White House, but it’s now Claire, who’s also served as Vice President. And in a case of life imitating art, Wright has stepped up to lead the…

Seth Meyers asks women to lead us into the future in searing Golden Globes monologue

Leading up the ceremonial duties for the largest Hollywood gathering since the revelations of just how deep the culture of sexual harassment (and misogyny) runs in the film and TV industry—and really, anywhere—was going to be a tough task for anyone. And while handing over that kind of platform to a white man again…

Removing Kevin Spacey isn't the only way they could have improved All The Money In The World

B-

Whatever else can be said about Ridley Scott’s ripped-from-the-headlines thriller All The Money In The World, you’d never guess—if you didn’t know already—that one of its key roles was occupied by an entirely different actor just six weeks ago. Gone is Kevin Spacey, who buried himself deeply under mounds of old-age…

All The Money In The World moves its release date to Christmas Day

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony has pushed the release date of Ridley Scott’s All The Money In The World—a movie that does not have Kevin Spacey in it, so don’t bring up Kevin Spacey—from December 22 to December 25. Apparently, this has nothing to do with any Kevin Spacey-related controversies (because he’s…

Gabriel Byrne says Kevin Spacey's "inappropriate sexual behavior" held up The Usual Suspects

There’s entitlement, impunity, and privilege, and then there’s Kevin Spacey causing a production stoppage on a Bryan Singer movie thanks to his “inappropriate sexual behavior.” This perfect circle of shitty dudes acting out inappropriately in professional settings was revealed by Spacey’s The Usual Suspects co-star…

Ridley Scott enthusiastically explains his decision to recast Kevin Spacey in All The Money In The World

Hollywood is facing a long-overdue campaign of housecleaning at the moment, as decades-worth of accusations of sexual harassment and assault against powerful men are finally coming to light (and actually being listened to, for once). This sweeping out of the alleged bums has had any number of knock-on effects in the…

Bryan Cranston says we should be open to forgiving Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey

For the most part, the condemnation of Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey has been near-total, as the two Hollywood figures—whose allegations of serial sexual misconduct set off the industry’s current wave of outing its long history of abuse—have seen themselves swiftly shunned from the community that kept its open…

We are witnessing Hollywood’s long-overdue moral reckoning

In 2006, while accepting the Best Supporting Actor award for Syriana, George Clooney gave a speech that instantly became such shorthand for celebrity smugness that South Park based an entire episode around making fun of it. “We are a little bit out of touch in Hollywood every once in a while, I think. It’s probably a…
