The actor's summer blockbuster Suicide Squad was considered a chaotic mess by critics (though still became a box office hit) — and his year-end Oscar bait film Collateral Beauty is shaping up to be the WORST reviewed film of the year!
The reviews came out for the star-studded drama ahead of its Friday release, and most failed to see any beauty in the "horrifyingly yucky" tear-jerker — with critics claiming its cast (featuring Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley, Kate Winslet, and Edward Norton) suffers from "actor abuse"!
Smith plays a New York ad exec who grieves over the loss of his daughter by writing personal letters to death, time, and love in so he can forge a personal connection with the universe.
While that concept has potential to draw some real emotion, most critics felt a manipulated sentimentality brought by the talented cast acting their best (except Smith, that is) in a story void of any real emotion! Ouch!
Ch-ch-check out the scathing reviews for yourself (below) — and see Collateral Beauty (if you dare!) in theaters December 16!
These are such tough words to read, but such an important lesson and memory to hold.
It's been two years since Robin Williams' death, and his widow, Susan Schneider Williams, is doing very difficult and admirable work in being sure that the awareness of his brain disease, Lewy Body Disease, will not be forgotten.
In a heartbreaking essay Susan published in Neurology this week, the widow shared a very intimate portrait of the final few months with her late husband, including how the disease consumed and completely transformed his life.
The essay, titled The Terrorist Inside My Husband's Brain, reads in part:
Eddie Murphy might not do a ton of interviews, but when he does, we get some pretty crazy revelations!
While promoting his upcoming indie drama Mr. Church, the 55-year-old industry vet made his first-ever podcast appearance for The Hollywood Reporter's "Awards Chatter" — and he opened up about everything from refusing drugs from Robin Williams and John Belushi, to not owning a computer.
As you know, Williams committed suicide back in 2014 after a long battle with cocaine and alcohol addiction, and Belushi tragically died in 1982 after a fatal overdose. So sad.
Can you believe it's been 25 years since Robin Williams flew into our hearts as an older Peter Pan in Hook?!
Unfortunately Robin is no longer with us, but the actors who played the Lost Boys in the Steven Spielberg flick did what they do best — carry on the memory of a legend — as they got together for the 25th Anniversary of the 1991 film.
If just knowing this little reunion happened isn't good enough, you'll be happy to know that 22 Vision was on the scene to capture ALL the magic!
The production company was lucky enough to catch up with Dante Basco, Raushan Hammond, James Madio, Ryan Francis, Thomas Tulak, Isaiah Robinson, Ahmad Stoner, Bo Georghe, and Brett and Bryan Willis to snag a bunch of photos and interview them about their experiences!
