Blake Lively’s ‘The Rhythm Section’ Bumped Back 9 Months to November 2019

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Blake Lively’s “The Rhythm Section” has been bumped back nine months to Nov. 22, 2019, Paramount announced Friday.

The film was previously scheduled to be released on Feb. 22, 2019. The spy thriller will now compete against Disney’s “Frozen 2,” which is opening during the same timeframe.

TheWrap previously reported that production had been temporarily suspended in December 2017 because Lively had injured her wrist while filming an action sequence.

Reed Morano is directing “The Rhythm Section,” the first film in what’s intended to become a franchise with Michael G.Wilson and Barbara Broccoli producing. The film also stars Sterling K. Brown as Lively’s love interest.

“The Rhythm Section” is based on a series of spy novels by Mark Burnell, which tells the story of a woman scorned by the loss of her family in a mysterious plane crash.

Lively most recently starred in “The Shallows,” “All I See Is You,” and “A Simple Favor.” She is represented by WME, Management 360 and Vision PR.

Variety first reported the news.

Paramount Again Finds 2018 Box Office a ‘Quiet Place’ Despite Hits Like ‘Mission: Impossible’

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Even with the massive success of John Krasinski’s “A Quiet Place” and the latest installment of Tom Cruise’s “Mission Impossible” series, Paramount had a mostly flat 2018 at the box office.

Though it crawled up a spot from 2017 to take sixth place in market share, pulling in just over $700 million in domestic box office to date, the Viacom-owned studio still lagged well ahead the five other majors and showed little sign it would reclaim the No. 1 spot it held as recently as 2011.

“It’s a year where they have to take stock and look forward to creating more franchises like ‘Mission: Impossible’ as well as working with filmmakers like John Krasinksi to come up with unexpected hits like ‘A Quiet Place’ that could be hugely profitable for the studio,” comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian said.

Paramount’s brightest spot was “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” the sixth installment in Tom Cruise’s action series that managed to buck the franchise odds by outgrossing its 2015 predecessor, “Rogue Nation,” both domestically and overseas. The $178 million-budgeted film earned $791 million worldwide, a greater-than-$100 million bump from “Rogue Nation.”

The studio also scored a second-quarter sleeper hit with actor-director John Krasinksi’s horror drama “A Quiet Place.” Made on a production budget of $17 million, the film earned $340 million worldwide and earned nearly unanimous praise from critics — with a sequel already slated for 2020.

And Travis Knight’s “Bumblebee,” a post-Michael Bay installment in the “Transformers” franchise budgeted at a more modest $135 million, looks to be doing solid business over the end-of-year holiday corridor on the strength of the series’ strongest critical reviews. It too will need a boost from foreign ticket sales to transform into profitability.

But then there were the studio’s many box office misses. The $59 million animated film “Sherlock Gnomes” grossed only $90 million worldwide; Mark Walhberg’s $48 million family comedy “Instant Family” topped out at $71 million worldwide; and the JJ Abrams-produced horror film “Overlord” made just $41 million worldwide on a reported $38 million budget.

The studio’s biggest misfire may have been the Johnny Knoxville-led “Action Point,” which earned just for $5 million on a budget of $19 million.

While other major studios like Disney regard Netflix as a threat, Paramount has forged a cozy relationship with the streaming giant to offload projects — or portions of projects — that it no longer sees as viable to market to theatergoers. After reports of poor test-screening results for the $40 million sci-fi movie “Annihilation,” the studio sold international distribution rights to Netflix — a deal that mitigated a domestic box office gross of just $32 million.

Paramount also sold Netflix all of the Abrams-produced “The Cloverfield Paradox” for a reported $40 – $50 million, recouping much of the reported $45 million budget without having to shell out a cent for marketing. And this month the studio unloaded the horror film “Eli,” the only one of the three that wasn’t a holdover from the studio’s previous regime.

Clearly it was another rebuilding for year for Jim Gianopulos, who took over the studio reins in April 2017 after the departure of longtime Paramount chief Brad Grey. He brought in Disney Animation Studios and Pixar marketing exec David Sameth as president of worldwide marketing, with Liz West and Rachel Cadden promoted to EVPs.

And after a long and fallow period without new productions, the studio has kicked back into gear. Some high-profile 2019 films include a remake of Stephen King’s “Pet Cemetery,” the Elton John biopic “Rocketman,” the Will Smith sci-fi actioner “Gemini Man” and a live-action version of a beloved cartoon from Viacom-owned Nickelodeon, “Dora the Explorer.”

The studio is also aiming to reboot dormant franchises. “Deadpool” director Tim Miller has been tapped for another reboot of “Terminator,” and Tom Cruise is rebooting the 1986 fighter pilot hit “Top Gun” — though the studio pushed the release of “Maverick” from July 2019 to June 2020. Even so, with higher profile projects on its slate again, Paramount may once again be riding the highway to the danger zone.

Blake Lively Calls out Fashion Editor for ‘Double Standard’ Over Custom Suits

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Blake Lively has called out the fashion world’s “double standard” of wearing suits following a fashion editor’s remark that the actress was spotted wearing “suit number 1,356” on the “A Simple Favor” press tour.

Red Carpet Fashion Awards founder Catherine Kallon joked on Instagram that Lively wearing a pink Ralph Lauren suit to the U.K. premiere of Paul Feig’s noir thriller was “suit number 1,356.” However, the actress quickly responded to make an overall statement about the industry.

“Would you note a man wearing lots of suits during a promo tour?” Lively commented. “So why can’t a woman? Just sayinnnn. No double standard ladies.”

Kallon then took an image of the comment and posted on Instagram: “The queen has spoken. #NoDoubleStandards #WomenInSuits #WhenYourJokeDoesntBang.”

Lively has been wearing an array of different suits during the press tour for the new film she stars in alongside Anna Kendrick, with her garment choices being a direct nod to her character, Emily, a mysterious woman who is a fashion publicist.

In fact, fans are feeling Lively’s suits, both in the movie as well as on the press tour.

Shane Black’s ‘The Predator’ Seizes $2.5 Million at Thursday Box Office

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Fox’s “The Predator” earned $2.5 million at the Thursday box office, while Paul Feig’s noir thriller “A Simple Favor” grossed $900,000.

Produced for $88 million, Shane Black’s film is expected to earn in the high $20 million range. “The Predator” stars Boyd Holdbrook, Sterling K. Brown, Olivia Munn, Jacob Tremblay, Trevante Rhodes and Keegan-Michael Key. It currently holds a score of 34 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

“The Predator” starts with a boy (Tremblay) who accidentally turns on an alien signal that he thinks is a toy. The signal triggers the return of the titular alien race, which has become even stronger thanks to DNA fusion with other races it has hunted.

“A Simple Favor” is expected to gross somewhere in the mid-teens this weekend. Starring Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively, and “Crazy Rich Asians” star Henry Golding, the film follows a small-town blogger who sets out to discover why her best friend, Emily, has suddenly disappeared. Emily’s husband joins in the search, only for the two to fall down a path of mystery and murder. Written by Jessica Sherzer, the film has an 83 percent RT score.

New Line’s “The Nun,” which is expected to go head-to-head with “The Predator” for the number one spot this weekend, grossed another $2.2 million on Thursday, bringing its cumulative total to $66.9 million since its debut last weekend.

Sony’s “White Boy Rick” took in $575,000 on Thursday night from 2,176 locations. The studio is projecting an opening weekend between $8 million and $10 million.

“White Boy Rick” stars Matthew McConaughey and newcomer Richie Merritt as a father and son duo living in Detroit at the height of the cocaine wars in the 1980s. The son, Rick Wershe, Jr., became known as an undercover police informant and one of the city’s most successful drug dealers before being abandoned by his handlers and sentenced to life in prison — all before the age of 18. Yann Demange (“’71”) directed the film from a script written by Andy Weiss with Logan and Noah Miller.

That magical pair of jeans that seems to perfectly fit four very different teenage girls may soon get a Broadway upgrade.

Alcon Entertainment and Alloy Entertainment on Tuesday announced plans to develop a stage musical based on the hit 2005 movie “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.”

Amber Tamblyn, America Ferrara, Blake Lively and Alexis Bledel starred in the successful teen drama, which spawned a 2008 sequel that actually did better at the box office. They played best friends who spend a summer apart while passing along a pair of jeans that seem to fit each of them and lets them remain close despite their disparate adventures.

Blue Spruce Productions, led by Tony Award-winning theatrical producer Scott Delman, has acquired the live theatrical rights from Alcon and Alloy and will serve as the project’s lead producer. The producers have yet to announce a creative team for the project.

The films, based on Ann Brashares’s best-selling and award-winning young-adult novels, were produced by Alcon and Alloy and have developed a rabid fan base among young women over the years.

A new trailer was released for Blake Lively’s “A Simple Favor,” in which Anna Kendrick makes the mistake of looking into her best friend’s life.

The film, directed by Paul Feig, looks into the mysterious disappearance of Emily Nelson (Lively). Kendrick, who plays Emily’s best friend, goes on a hunt to find her, uncovering details about the girl she thought she knew.

“She’s like a beautiful ghost,” Henry Golding’s character says in the trailer.

“I’ve never seen such a beautiful girl want to be so invisible,” Linda Cardellini’s character adds.

In May, Lively cleared all of her Instagram posts and unfollowed everyone, including her husband Ryan Reynolds. She also started following only women with the name Emily Nelson, in order to promote the film. Since then, she’s re-followed her husband and now only follows one Emily Nelson.

Deadpool Takes Over Colbert’s Monologue to Make Trump Jokes: ‘We All Know Trump Prefers His Leaks in Russian Hotel Rooms’

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

On “The Late Show” Tuesday night, Stephen Colbert had a surprise visitor: Ryan Reynolds in character as Deadpool. During his monologue, Colbert was wondering aloud when audiences would get sick of superhero movies when Reynolds’ voice drifted in from offstage suggesting that “Deadpool 2,” which is out on Friday, could be the breaking point.

Then Deadpool himself walked out on the stage and the two bantered for a bit before Deadpool took over Colbert’s monologue completely to make fun of Donald Trump.

Below you can read the full transcript of the whole thing — it’s better that way than because I’m not as funny as they are.

Colbert: “There are so many superhero movies this year. Besides ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ we’ve already had ‘Black Panther,’ and pretty soon there’ll be ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ and ‘Aquaman’ and ‘Venom’ — I mean, at what point will audiences say, ‘enough with the superheroes’?”

Deadpool: [walking in from offstage] “Is it ‘Deadpool 2’? I bet it’s ‘Deadpool 2.’ “

Colbert: “What! What! Well. Look at that! Deadpool? Holy cow! Deadpool, star of the movie ‘Deadpool.’ “

Deadpool: “Please guys, no one stand up. Its CBS. I know how old your audience is.”

Colbert: “Well, Wade — may I call you Wade?”

Deadpool: “Absolutely.”

Colbert: “Wade, I’m in the middle of my monologue right here. You do realize I’m doing a show right now?”

Deadpool: “Don’t be disgusting, Stephen. This is a great opportunity for me to promote my new movie, ‘Deadpool 2,’ in theaters Friday. And, yes, I would love to be your guest tonight. Thank you for asking.”

Colbert: “Well, obviously, that would be lovely, but I already have a guest. It’s Academy Award-winner Jamie Foxx.”

Deadpool: “I see. Well, he’s got boyish charm for days. I, for one, loved his work in ‘Back to the Future.’ “

Colbert: “That’s– that’s a– that’s a different Fox.”

Deadpool: “I’ll be the judge of that. I’ll tell you who should not be on your show: Ryan Reynolds. Huge a–hole. He’s like the poor man’s version of Ryan Reynolds. And like the rich man’s version of my most recent turd.”

Colbert: “Okay, I think you should go now.”

Deadpool: “You’re absolutely right. You’re absolutely right, Jimmy. I should go. I should go ahead and read the rest of your monologue.”

Colbert: “Oh, really? You think you could do this, both stand and read jokes? You know, in our own way, we late night hosts are basically superheroes.”

Deadpool: “Because you’re all mostly white men? Come on, come on, give me those glasses. Let’s go.”

The administration is still dealing with the fallout from trump announcing that the U.S. will be pulling out of the Iran deal. It’s Trump’s biggest pulling out blunder since Eric. And President Trump spent the day complaining on Twitter about leaks inside the White House, because we all know Trump prefers his leaks in Russian hotel rooms. You get it, Stephen? Because the president watched two Russian prostitutes urinate on a hotel mattress.”

Colbert: “We get the idea.”

Deadpool: “We’ve got a great one for you tonight, folks!”

Colbert: “When I come back, more monologue.”

Deadpool: “Oh, how tantalizingly vague.”

Colbert: “And ‘Back to the Future’s’ Jamie Foxx is here.”

Deadpool: “And thank god Mr. Blake Lively is not. Oh god, I don’t feel well. [Deadpool starts to fade from existence, ‘Infinity War’-style] Oh, what the f—! Thanos? You don’t have the budget for this, Colbert!”

In a surprise performance at the 2018 Met Gala, Madonna sang “Like a Prayer” and “Hallelujah,” fitting this year’s theme of “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.”

According to Rolling Stone, Madonna and a group of backup singers appeared on the Met stairs dressed in monk robes to sing her classic “Like a Prayer.” For the cover of Leonard Cohen’s 1984 song”Hallelujah,” she performed a lightly-choreographed dance to the piano.

She also performed a new tune as part of her set, singing, “It’s a beautiful plan, but I’m not concerned / It’s a beautiful game, that I never learned / You have taught me to shut my mouth, so I don’t get burned / Keep your beautiful lies, ’cause I’m not concerned.”
