Luke Grimes Starring in ‘Yellowstone’ With Kevin Costner (Exclusive)

6 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Luke Grimes will star opposite Kevin Costner in “Yellowstone,” Variety has learned.

The Paramount Network show is set in the largest contiguous ranch in the United States, which, despite its size, finds its borders threatened by land developers, an Indian reservation, and America’s first national park. Costner plays the ranch owner’s patriarch, while Grimes plays his youngest son, Cory.

The television series was created by Taylor Sheridan, the Oscar-nominated writer of “Hell or High Water” and “Sicario.”

Grimes most recently finished filming “El Camino Christmas” for Netflix, which was written and produced by Ted Melfi and was directed by David E. Talbert. »

Box Office: ‘Transformers 5’ Stumbles With $8.1 Million Thursday

6 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Transformers: The Last Knight” is looking very creaky as it lumbers towards its opening weekend.

The fifth film in the robots series picked up $8.1 million on Thursday, bringing its domestic gross to $23.7 million after two days of release. At this pace, “Transformers: The Last Knight” will just top $60 million in the the first five days of its release. That’s a dramatic slide from the $100 million that the most recent installment, “Transformers: Age of Extinction” racked up over its first three days of release when it hit theaters in 2014.


Michael Bay Movies Ranked From Worst to Best

It’s also a sign that the long-running franchise, which kicked off a decade ago, may be showing its age. It joins the likes of “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” and “Alien: Covenant” in the ranks of film series that are running out of steam this summer.

Like the previous films, this “Transformers” is directed by Michael Bay. It brings back “Age of Extinction” star Mark Wahlberg and pairs him with Anthony Hopkins. “The Last Knight” pits humans versus robots, with Wahlberg and Hopkins searching the Transformers’ secret history for clues to save the world. This being a Bay film, there’s a healthy amount of visual bombast.

The muted response is bad news for Paramount. The studio could use a hit after suffering a string of bombs such as “Ghost in the Shell” and “Baywatch.”

With domestic audiences cooling on the film, “The Last Knight” will lean heavily on foreign crowds. To that end, the film opens in 41 international markets beginning Friday. They include such heavy-hitting territories as China, the United Kingdom, Russia, Australia, Germany, and Korea.

All those action didn’t come cheap. The film carries a hefty $217 million price tag.

Matt Lauer Recreates Famous Tom Cruise ‘Glib’ Interview With Andy Cohen

22 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s been 12 years since Tom Cruise lectured Matt Lauer about antidepressants and psychiatry during a now-infamous interview. To commemorate that notorious interaction, Andy Cohen, host of “What Happens Live With Andy Cohen,” recreated the cringe-worthy scene with Lauer as the lead of Cruise.

Before recreating the scene for Clubhouse Playhouse, Lauer emphasized, “I like Tom Cruise. We have a good relationship. We have a good friendship. It was just one little moment, okay?”

Lauer wore a Tom Cruise wig and Cohen acted as the “Today” host as they took turns reading lines from the interview in front of a green screen: “Matt, »

Jada Pinkett Smith isn’t the only one who isn’t thrilled about the new Tupac Shakur biopic “All Eyez on Me.” Lionsgate, Morgan Creek Productions and others have been slapped with a copyright infringement lawsuit filed by Kevin Powell, who alleges that the film infringes on a series of articles he wrote about Shakur for Vibe magazine in the 1990s. The suit cites a June interview given by “All Eyez on Me” producer L.T. Hutton, in which Hutton allegedly stated that “all of the interviews” of Tupac Shakur were used to make the film.

James Corden and Seth Rogen Deliver Pizza to Unsuspecting L.A. Residents

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In a bit that could hardly take place anywhere but Los Angeles, James Corden and Seth Rogen delivered pizzas to unsuspecting residents around the city.

Thursday’s “Late Late Show” sketch “Mystery Pizza Box” did, however, come with a catch. The comedic duo offered customers a choice between sticking with the pizza they’ve ordered, from L.A.’s own Prime Pizza, or taking whatever was in the mystery pizza box.

All three deliveries chose the latter option — with “prizes” ranging from a box with a heaping portion of marinara sauce, front-row seats to an impromptu wrestling match, and an epic Instagram-worthy birthday party. »
