Weinstein VS Relativity: When Studios Get Catty!

Filed under: Film Flickers

Meow!

Two of the biggest movie-making companies in the biz are at each other's throats over the distribution rights to the movie The Crow.

Basically, Relativity owns the rights to the movie right now, but agreed to hand over the rights to the Weinstein Company so they could distribute it. The Weinstein Company claims Relativity reneged on the deal because they are still upset over what they call the "mishandling" of Nine, the last flick the two companies collaborated on.

So, Relativity is asking for $20 million in damages from Weinstein for Nine because it performed so poorly and they are refusing to hand over The Crow, claiming the studios lacks the $70 million necessary to release the film.

And what does the Weinstein Company have to say about this whole mess? Let's check in with their lawyer Bert Fields and see! Bert says:

"The allegations of the motion are absolute garbage. This claim was about a totally different picture. It should have been made at the time of 'Nine,' not now because they broke the contract on 'The Crow.' It's total hogwash, and I cant wait to get Mr. Kavanaugh on the witness stand."

Someone's all fired up!!! The fight is on!!!

But all this fuss over The Crow? Seriously? we know it has a pretty devote following, but c'mon? $70 million???

sophia loren gets honored

What a lovely gesture!

Yesterday, legendary actress Sophia Loren was honored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Hollywood with a tribute ceremony, after having also received a lifetime achievement Oscar back in 1991.

Here's what Sophia had to say while at the Academy's tribute ceremony for the actress:

"The Academy Award changed my life completely. It helped me to believe in myself and encouraged me to push my own artistic boundaries."

"There are no words to describe my emotions right now. It is hard to imagine that 50 years have passed since I welcomed my Oscar to my home."

Speeches at the ceremony were given by Tom Hanks, Sophia's Nine director Rob Marshall, and her son Edoardo Ponti who said the following about his mother:

"We are here because we love you and you deserve every single thing."

So sweet. She's accomplished SO MUCH and looks A-MAZING at 76 years old!!!

Congratulations, Sophia! We're very happy for you!

Marion Cotillard Dishes To Interview About Her Good Deeds

Marion Cotillard is looking flawless as per usual on the sultry cover of Interview magazines' August issue.

The Academy Award winning actress dishes to her Nine co-star Nicole Kidman about her recent travels with Greenpeace where she documents the plundering of Congolese forests.

The actress says:

"I’m very happy with what’s happening now and how the awareness is spreading. Because 10 years ago my mind-set wasn’t really normal for most people. I sounded like a crazy person talking about the environment. People saw me as a hippie who wanted to make my own cheese and live with animals in a house without electricity."

Good for you bb! You look gorgeous and way to get out there and make people aware of the issues in the Congo.
