Well, I guess we know why Francis Ford Coppola‘s partially self-funded passion project Megalopolis’ production budget is so high and why he fired his entire VFX team and his art department walked out en masse citing creative differences. Judging from new photos from the Atlanta set taken this week, Captain Francis is going to need a bigger boat (load of money) if he hopes to land his white whale because there aren’t enough effects, special, practical, or otherwise, to turn Shia LaBeouf into a Greek Goddess that anybody would pay a single red hemitetartemorion to see on the big screen. I’m looking at this shit on a little ole’ computer screen and I’m repulsed. If this is Megalopolis, throw it back. It’s clearly diseased! I’ll take The Meg(alodon) 3, 4, and 5 over this fishy mess any day.
Francis Ford Coppola’s Personally Funded Passion Project “Megalopolis” Is Reportedly Hemorrhaging Money And Talent
Three years ago, nepo daddy Francis Ford Coppola was bemoaning the state of CINEMA, placing the blame for its nosedive from high art to repetitive drivel squarely on the shoulders of those “despicable” “Marvel pictures.” At the time, Francis was already decades into production on the “most ambitious film” of his career, Megalopolis, which he is so passionate about, he’s reportedly sunk “tens of millions” of his own money into bringing it to the screen. And he ain’t talking about your dang phone! Francis means the huge silver one with dazzling images and the sound that you can feel and the whatnot. Megalopolis may be one man’s vision, but it takes a lot of money and manpower to make that vision a reality, and Francis is reportedly hemorrhaging both.
Jon Voight’s career aspiration to be a Donald Trump fluffer on the orange-hairpiece-fetish porn set that has been the White House for the last 4 years, might just be his boldest role yet. And The Wrap says that after Jon posted yet another video of support for Trump, his daughter Angelina Jolie’s unofficial army of adoring ‘net warriors showed her some support and sympathy for being related to him.
Mother’s Day can be tough for a lot of children. When you don’t have a mother around to gift with flowers or a John Denver: Greatest Hits CD you found , last-minute, at the gas station, it can be a horribly painful 24 hours that you just want to end. Well, Angelina Jolie wrote about that feeling in an op-ed for The New York Times. In it, she talks about her own mother, and the plight of all mothers around the world. And, she didn’t forget to throw in a jab at her deadbeat dad.
The premiere for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil was held last night in Los Angeles, and it’s not exactly a surprise that Angelina Jolie would be there. You know, since she’s the second-billed star (I’m pretty sure her cheekbones get top billing). And Angelina decided to bring a plus one, plus two, plus three, plus four, and plus five in the form of her kids Pax, Shiloh, Vivienne, Zahara, and Knox. It’s pretty clear that Angelina didn’t circulate a family-wide text beforehand about who would be wearing what, otherwise Zahara wouldn’t have shown up looking like Maleficent’s even more diabolically dramatic replacement that was recruited from an evil finishing school. That scorpion looks like it’s about to hand in its notice and go to work on Zahara’s dress.
Every year or so Jon Voight comes out of hiding and reminds us why he and Angelina Jolie have such a strained relationship. Jon has tons of opinions on racism. Specifically how it’s over and it’s all just this storyline created by “the left” who are horrible evil people. Whereas racists just don’t exist anymore, I guess? Cool…
