Goodes twice won the Brownlow Medal, awarded to the fairest and best player in the Australian Football League, and was named Australian of the Year in 2014. Having spoken out about racism, he faced hostility from booing fans inside stadiums while playing and from some quarters of the media. He quietly retired in 2015.
Daniel Gordon (“Hillsborough”) directed the film, which was written by Australian journalist Stan Grant. It traces Goodes’ his meteoric rise in football through to his bowing out of the sport. Goodes is interviewed, and the film features archive footage.
Francis Ford Coppola called Marvel Cinematic Universe films “despicable” at the Lumiere Film Festival in Lyon, where he received the Prix Lumiere.
The Godfather director spoke out in support of Martin Scorsese’s comments that Marvel films are not “true cinema.” He was flanked by Cannes chief Thierry Frémaux and acclaimed director Bertrand Tavernier.
Scorsese argued that Marvel films are like “theme park rides” when delivering the Bafta David Lean Lecture. In response to a question posed by Screen, Coppola acknowledged
Stephen King rules modern horror – but how much of his reign can we take? In 2019, his stories seem to be everywhere. On Halloween comes Doctor Sleep, the sequel to The Shining. It is the fourth King-derived movie this year, following Pet Sematary, In the Tall Grass (Netflix’s third King adaptation in three years) and, still on release, It: Chapter Two. Meanwhile, coming to the small screen we have HBO’s The Outsider, Amazon’s The Dark Tower, a Julianne Moore-led Lisey’s Story, The Stand, season three of Mr Mercedes and season two of Castle Rock. His 61st novel, The Institute, was also released last month. A TV adaptation is already in the works.
You do not have to look far for explanations for King’s ubiquity. For one thing,

Shi was in Pingyao to receive the ‘International Contribution to Chinese Cinema Award’ for helping give Chinese films an international profile. Her producing credits include the many iconic titles she made through Film Workshop with her former husband Tsui Hark, to the Infernal Affairs
The hands down best scene of Showtime’s exceptionally good, wild ride of a series “On Becoming a God in Central Florida” arrives at the season’s end. As it turns out, it was also the last scene that director Charlie McDowell shot with stars Kirsten Dunst and Théodore Pellerin.
In the Sunday night finale, Krystal (Dunst) — the streetwise Orlando water-park employee who takes command of the cult-like pyramid scheme that drove her husband to his death — is, as she puts it, “fucking done.” By now, Krystal has confronted the insidious, true nature of Fam, which hasn’t been paying off for her or for her co-conspirator Cody (Pellerin), who’s been working as a security detail for the Garbeaus.
In the climactic scene of “Go Getters Gonna Go Getcha,” Krystal and Cody share a come-to-Jesus moment in an empty bathtub,

Like a herd of cattle stampeding through a Tulsa ranch, the “Watchmen” premiere comes at you fast. Easily Damon Lindelof’s most tightly packed episode since “The Leftovers” Season 3 debut, “The Book of Kevin,” “It’s Summer, and We’re Running Out of Ice” builds a vivid new world on the foundation laid by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ graphic novel — and then it digs a new basement to boot. By opening with the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, Lindelof establishes a new (and true) starting point for his story, as well as a stark framing that sets the stage for the series’ central conflict: the white supremacists in the Seventh Kavalry and a police force led by a black detective, Angela Abar (Regina King).
In between, there are easter eggs galore for fans of the original comic book, more

If you were hoping “The Walking Dead” would start revving the old storytelling engines after the table setting of this season’s first two episodes, I’m afraid you’ll have to keep waiting. There is some incremental progress made in the Whisperer storyline during “Ghosts”, but otherwise it’s a bunch of uninspired or redundant character work. No one would ever accuse “The Walking Dead” of being a fast-paced series, but I held some hope that after Season 9’s eventful run, Season 10 would shake things up a bit more. But if this year’s first three episodes are any indication, Season 9’s pacing was an aberration; we’re back to slowed-down business as usual. And sadly, “Ghosts” is the weakest episode of Season 10 so far.

The company is planning to add 900 more screens across the country over the next decade. “That’s the realistic answer, but my desire is to do it over the next five years,” Siddharth Jain, director, Inox Group, told Variety.
Inox will spend on an average $350,000 per screen, amounting to a total investment of $316 million for 900 screens. The company is currently India’s second largest cinema chain behind market leader PVR, which has 800 screens and plans to add 800-1,000 more over four years at a cost of $422 million.
Inox recently completed a $7 million refurbishment of an existing property in Mumbai and relaunched it as a 11-screen ‘Megaplex.’ It is the world’s first multiplex with six different cinema formats under one roof.
These include Inox’s homegrown formats Insignia, a luxury experience with leather recliners,
Kennedy was one of the five presenters for this year’s Student Academy Awards — along with Melina Matsoukas, Gregory Nava, Phil Lord and Chris Miller — which honored 16 student winners from colleges and universities around the world.
While the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has existed since 1929, the student academy wasn’t founded until 1972 in an effort to encourage student filmmakers while acknowledging them for telling stories that do more than just entertain. Robert Zemeckis, Spike Lee and Patricia Riggen were past Student Academy Award recipients.
Kennedy praised this year’s “extraordinary winners,” saying,
All told, it’s another weekend below the same period in 2018. With an estimated total of around $136 million, that’s 20% lower than last year, when “Halloween” opened to more than “Maleficent” and “Zombieland” combined. It also extends the annual shortfall to nearly $550 million and almost 6%, eliminating any real hope of box-office growth.
Disney dominance is propelled by an assembly line that includes its live-action versions of animated and other kids classics. However, this sequel to “Maleficent” opened to less than half of the 2014 original; at a $200 million production cost,
