Critics and audiences have praised the film’s signature fight sequences, giving “Chapter 3” an 88% score on Rotten Tomatoes and an A- on CinemaScore.

The stand-up comedian passed away of natural causes at his home in Las Vegas and was surrounded by family, according to a tribute posted Saturday on The Comedy Store’s Facebook page.

Shore co-founded The Comedy Store with his writing partner Rudy De Luca in 1972. It would soon become one of most popular comedy clubs in the nation.

As of Saturday, more than a million people have signed a Change.org petition for the hit HBO series to remake its final season, calling series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss “woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on.”
Dylan D., the petition author, explained Saturday that he started the movement out of disappointment and frustration, and that he’s not expecting HBO to react to the massive call for change.
A rep for HBO did not respond to a request for comment.

“I strongly condemn the voices on Fox and in the media which uncritically amplify hate and the divisive sort of politics which gave rise to this presidency,” Buttigieg said in an email to supporters Saturday. “Their goal is to spread fear and lies, not serve as honest brokers with the American people.”
“But just became many of these opinion hosts don’t operate in good faith, it doesn’t mean there aren’t Fox viewers tuning in in good faith,” he continued. “If we ignore the viewers of Fox News and every news platform that doesn’t share our worldview, we will surrender
The film is a departure from Z’s usual register of ultra-low budget, self-penned, Myanmar-set dramas and documentaries. For a start, it’s the ethnic Burmese director’s first film set in Taiwan. It’s also his first with a professional-level budget (of $2 million) and his first from a third-party scriptwriter.
Wu, Z’s lead actress in most of his fiction titles, told him back in 2016 that she was working on a script for him, and then surprised Z by actually delivering. “So many people say they are working on something for me, but then never come through.

“Al Jazeera stated today, that it has taken disciplinary action and suspended two of its journalists over video content produced on the Holocaust,” the company said. “The video content and accompanying posts were swiftly deleted by Aj+ senior management from all Aj+ pages and accounts on social media, as it contravened the Network’s editorial standards.”
The decision came after Jenan Moussa, a reporter for the UAE-based Al Aan TV flagged a tweet from Al Jazeera At+ Arabic network, which featured the video along with the following description:
“Gas ovens killed millions of Jews, that’s how the novel says. What is the truth of the #holocaust and how did the Zionist movement benefit from it?,” it read according to a Twitter translated version.

Berlin funding agency Medienboard’s managing director Kirsten Niehuus hosted a cocktail reception on Saturday at Grand Hotel in Cannes to celebrate the five films it funded that feature in the festival program.
The five films are competition titles “A Hidden Life” and “Little Joe”; Un Certain Regard films “The Invisible Life of Euridice Gusmao” and “Liberté”; and Critics’ Week film “The Trap”.

Other guests include Edward Berger, director of “Patrick Melrose,” “Deutschland 83” and “Jack”; Nurhan Sekerci-Porst, producer of Fatih Akin’s “In the Fade
Of course, linear is a relative term when it comes to Terrence Malick. “A Hidden Life” is anchored in story in a way the director’s last few films have not been, but its storytelling rhythms are quintessentially his, with all the beauty and all the languor that that entails.
Based on the true story of an Austrian conscientious objector who refused to fight for Nazi Germany in World War II, “A Hidden Life” is certainly
And lest that sound like more flower-power finger-painting from a director whose oeuvre can sometimes feel like a parody of itself, consider this: Without diminishing the millions of lives lost during World War II, Malick makes a case for rethinking the stakes of that conflict — echoes of which

Since HBO Now and HBO Go are not accessible for U.S. subscribers while in France, TheWrap has figured out how “Game of Thrones” fans can watch the final showdown in real time without having to learn who ends up on the Iron Throne through social media.
And don’t worry, it won’t take a prayer to the Old Gods and the New. But it will take either an HBO Europe subscription or having the right hotel room — or a friend in the right hotel room — because a Cannes attendee can view the series
Trump’s Sunday morning tweets surprised no one. He called Amash “a total lightweight” and claimed the congressman was only speaking out against him “just for the sake of getting his name out there through controversy”—something the president knows a thing or two about.

Jones, sporting an outfit from The Handmaid’s Tale, told Weekend Update host Colin Jost, “We are all handmaids. My name actually is OfJost.” The comedian then quickly removed her red robe to reveal a black shirt with the word “Mine” and an arrow pointing down before delivering a fervent speech about the importance of a woman’s right to choose.
