John Travolta's Gotti Opens with a 0% Rating on Rotten Tomatoes

Three new movies arrive in wide release this weekend, lead by Disney Pixar's The Incredibles 2, Warner Bros.' R-rated comedy Tag and Sony's drama remake Superfly hitting theaters, but another film debuting in limited release, Gotti, is making headlines for another reason. Gotti, which stars John Travolta as infamous crime boss John Gotti, debuted with a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with no positive reviews out of 14, as of today. While this is certainly a rare distinction, it was the third Travolta movie to get 0%, following 1983's Staying Alive and 1993's Look Who's Talking Now.

Gotti earned a slightly better distinction on the Rotten Tomatoes competitor MetaCritic, where it earned a 27 rating out of 100, based on five reviews. The movie was trashed by New York Times critic Glenn Kenny, who called the movie a "dismal mess," adding he was shocked at how "multifaceted a dismal mess.

Jimmy Kimmel: ‘The One Time Trump Should Have Pulled Out, We Ended Up With Donald Jr’

Jimmy Kimmel: ‘The One Time Trump Should Have Pulled Out, We Ended Up With Donald Jr’
There may have been several new big developments in the world of Donald Trump on Tuesday, but late night hosts all directed the bulk of their jokes at the same one: Trump announcing that the U.S. would pull out of the Iran nuclear deal. Jimmy Kimmel was no exception, devoting a large portion of his opening monologue on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Tuesday night to exactly that.

“He is so pleased with himself, pulling out of Obama’s deal,” Kimmel said. “The one time Trump should have pulled out, we ended up with Donald Jr. And now watching Donald Trump give this speech today was nothing short of fascinating.”

Kimmel then played a clip from Trump’s big announcement in which he mentioned that Mike Pompeo is heading to North Korea ahead of Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong-un — and Trump again pronounced “Kim Jong-un” in that strange halting way, pausing between each syllable, that drew everybody’s laughter a while back.

“I feel like he’s learning to read before our very eyes,” Kimmel joked. “But when he makes promises he keeps them. Just ask any of the women Michael Cohen paid off.”

After that brief non-sequitur, Kimmel got back on track.

“Trump says that the Iran deal is a horrible, one-sided deal and never should have been made. I bet anything he hasn’t read one word of that deal, he knows none of the details,” Kimmel said. “This is not a popular decision. Lawmakers from both parties spoke out against this. The British prime minister and French president said they regretted Trump’s choice. Even Russia said they were disappointed, though that is a lie — they love it. Trump said he will reimpose sanctions on Iran and, as a result, Iran says they will immediately resume enriching uranium. But Trump says if Iran doesn’t fall in line, look out.”

“Jimmy Kimmel Live” then played a clip of Trump declaring that “if the regime continues its nuclear aspirations it will have bigger problems than it has ever had before.”

“That’s right, don’t test him, Iran. He will turn your whole country into a poorly run casino like that,” Kimmel said, snapping his fingers.

“Meanwhile, the president’s legal team will decide next week whether or not he should testify before special counsel Robert Mueller,” Kimmel continued, moving on to new topics. “Trump is in a tough spot because he could sit down with Robert Mueller and get caught in a lie. Or even worse, he could sit down with Mueller and get caught in the truth, which would be devastating.”

Kimmel then discussed another popular late night topic on Tuesday: the report that Trump’s legal team tried to put him through a testimony prep session and it didn’t go well.

Also Read: Jimmy Kimmel: Rudy Giuliani's Job Is to Be 'Even Nuttier Than Trump' (Video)

“The Wall Street Journal reports that Trump’s lawyers put him through a four-hour practice session — they were only able to get through two questions in four hours,” Kimmel said before starting in a joke about Trump having dementia. “He’s like that old lady from ‘The Notebook.’ ‘Okay, first thing’s first, your name is Donald Trump and you’re president of the United States. Go.’ So Trump’s lawyers requested that he be able to answer the special counsel’s questions in writing instead of in person. Robert Mueller said no. That makes sense. Look at this guy’s handwriting. They’d have to bring in a cardiologist to translate it for them.”

Kimmel then displayed this image of Trump holding up a signed document.

“It’s also interesting the president’s lawyers don’t trust him to answer questions, but they do trust him to be president. It makes no sense at all,” Kimmel quipped.

“The president is also said to be unhappy with his newest attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who’s been making a mess on cable and network news. Trump is reportedly irritated and disappointed by the interviews Giuliani has been giving. He’s like, ‘Look I’ll say the crazy stuff, you stick to pretending it isn’t crazy.’ Can you imagine being so rambling, incoherent and contradictory that even Donald Trump is like, ‘You’re embarrassing me.’ They say he may even ban Giuliani from doing any more interviews. Which, I hope not. This would be like when they killed Mr. Eko off on ‘Lost.’ It’s too soon.”

Kimmel also got another news item that is hard to believe is all the way down here on the priority list. But, hey, welcome to 2018.

“And on top of all that, Stormy Daniels attorney, Michael Avenatti, today presented evidence that a Russian oligarch paid Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen $500,000, and Stormy herself did an interview with Penthouse magazine that came out today in which she said, among many things, that after sex Trump’s hair looks like a drunken cockatoo,” Kimmel said. “And I’ll tell you something — this is a woman who seen a drunken cockatoo.”

That last line there is a pun. If you think about it for a moment, it’ll come to you. If you’re having trouble, turn the “a” in “cockatoo” into “or.”

Rachel McAdams Says Her Sex Scene with Rachel Weisz Had an 'Energy' She Never Had with Male Actors

Rachel McAdams Says Her Sex Scene with Rachel Weisz Had an 'Energy' She Never Had with Male Actors
No offense Ryan Gosling, but Rachel McAdams’ favorite sex scene was not in The Notebook.

Instead, the actress recently revealed to Entertainment Weekly that she had the best-simulated sex of her life while filming her new movie Disobedience with Rachel Weisz. The duo play lovers forced to hide their relationship from their Orthodox Jewish community in the upcoming film based on the Naomi Alderman novel of the same name.

“Often, you’re trying to decide if it’s gratuitous or not,” McAdams, 39, said of filming the movie’s sex scene. “But this scene felt so integral to the plot and moving the story forward.

Deadpool 2's Peter Has A Twitter Account, And It's Gold

The final Deadpool 2 trailer has been released, and out of all the mutants who made an appearance, the team's newest member Peter is the fans new favorite of the team. It appears as though Ryan Reynolds and crew expected this, as they've already created an official account for the character, and it's comedy gold:

.@NatGeo You guys see this?? No way it’s real. #photoshop pic.twitter.com/33sPaAF1Dj

— Peter W. (@PeterW_1974) April 5, 2018

Peter's Twitter is rife with stuff that some lame middle-aged dude would post on the internet, which actually now that I'm thinking of it, might be low-key offensive to any lame middle-aged dude reading this post. There's also a sick burn delivered to star actor Ryan Reynolds, although Peter might be clueless as to how biting his tweet actually was:

Rachel McAdams Can't Stop Gushing Over New Baby Boy, "She's Pinching Herself, She Is so Happy"

It's baby bliss for Rachel McAdams! Though the actress may not be posting pics of her little boy on social media just yet, she is one proud — and happy — mama. That's right, despite the fact that she and boyfriend Jamie Linden keep a very low profile, the couple has officially announced their parenthood! So much so, that Rachel cannot stop gushing. That said, The Notebook star will continue to maintain her privacy. “She’s going to keep the circle around her small,” an insider tells In Touch of the 39-year-old, who never announced her pregnancy. (Life & Style exclusively reported that Rachel was pregnant back in February.) “She’s not even telling anyone outside her circle what she and Jamie [Linden] named him.” Rachel is content keeping her little one all to herself. “She’s pinching herself, she is so happy,” says the insider. "She can't stop kissing and holding her son.

Game Night Movie Review | Let’s Play

Well, I have to tell you that unless you are some kind of a die-hard snob, you will probably find Game Night (2018) far more entertaining than the average board game. Moreover, it is the perfect alternative if you want to persuade your friends to do something different on Saturday night. And if you happen to be a game buff, then this smart crime-thriller-comedy-mystery mash-up is right for you.

In a recent Q&A session on Reddit, the directors of Game Night (who by the way are huge fans of the board games) admitted that they make movies based on their own taste. In other words, they create films that they would love to watch themselves. They like to make the most fun out of this whole filmmaking thing. This is just one of the reasons Game Night turned out to be a huge success in the box-office.

‘Bob Weinstein on the line. He says he’s from Buffalo.’ A First-Person Perspective on the Early Years of Miramax Films

The Weinstein Company assets will be purchased by the Ron Burkle-backed Maria Contreras-Sweet, and all things Weinstein will be removed from whatever remains. After a nearly four-decade run, the legacy of the most successful specialized distributor in history comes down to the last five tumultuous months that mark an inglorious (if not inglourious) end.

The Weinsteins made its first big Oscar splash in 1990 with “My Left Foot,” but they’d already been around for some time. Long before I covered box office for IndieWire, I spent 30 years as a film buyer, booking for theaters — and was a first-hand witness to Harvey and Bob Weinstein’s rise. Here’s my perspective on how they grew from a small outlier to an indie powerhouse.

“Bob Weinstein on the line. He says he’s from Buffalo.”

Back in 1981, phone calls were announced by a receptionist. As a young film buyer for M&R Theaters,

Rachel McAdams is sitting in the parking lot of Martins Millwork, a purveyor of fine home building materials, in rural Georgia where she’s visiting some friends just before Christmas.

“I was coming back from Target. I was just getting suction cups for our Christmas wreaths and I’m now pulled over in the middle of, I don’t really know where,” she says with a laugh, apologizing for being 10 minutes late for our call. Halfway through our interview she has to placate a curious Martins employee who wants her to move on. She gives him a little wave and tells him sorry, that she’ll be gone soon. So Canadian.

How Billy Wilder made the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre fun … and romantic

Google “Valentine’s Day movies” and you’ll find all sorts of links to stories about romantic movies to watch on Valentine’s Day with your significant other.

I don’t have to actually go to any of those links to know what I’ll find there: “When Harry Met Sally,” “Titanic,” “Pretty Woman,” “Sleepless in Seattle,” “The Notebook” and some versions of “Romeo & Juliet” and “An Affair to Remember.” (Okay, I did go to one link and found the subversive suggestion of “Harold and Maude.” I liked that.)

If you were to confine your search to romantic movies that won the Oscar, you’d be surprised how few there are. In nine decades, voters found less than 10 swooners to honor as the year’s best picture. And that counts love stories that do not end well for the lovers, including “Casablanca,” “West Side Story,” “Titanic” and “Out of Africa.

Is The J.J. Abrams Produced Film Kolma with Daisy Ridley Actually Cloverfield 5

J.J. Abrams sure does love playing in the world of Cloverfield. He also seems to enjoy surprising us with the Cloverfield film announcements. 10 Cloverfield Lane, The Cloverfield Paradox, and the upcoming Overlord, were all developed as secret Cloverfield projects. Now, another J.J. Abrams-produced film project called Kolma might end up being a fifth Cloverfield film! That film stars Daisy Ridley. It makes me wonder if Star Wars: Episode IX will actually end up being Cloverfield 6!

Kolma is a remake of a 2003 Israeli TV movie. It was described as “a cross between a loftier, more mystical version of The Notebook and Albert Brooks‘ 1991 fantasy romance Defending Your Life, the project follows a young couple who get in a car accident that leaves the man dead. 50 years later, the old woman is about to cross over and make the choice whether to reunite with her long-lost love in the hereafter
