Warners Finds No Misconduct on Set of ‘Bachelor in Paradise,’ Show Will Resume Production

This is big: TMZ reports that Warner Bros. has concluded its investigation into the allegations of “misconduct” on the set of Bachelor in Paradise earlier this month. Shooting was suspended after a producer supposedly refused to show to work and then “went on to sue” the production. Rumors suggested that an altercation between contestants Demario Jackson and Corrine Olympios may have gone too far, with Olympios possibly too intoxicated to consent to sexual activity with Jackson. “I am a victim,” Olympios later said in a statement.

Six Directors Reveal Their Picks for the Best Movies of the 21st Century

Earlier today, The New York Times published a fascinating, beautifully designed, and occasionally infuriating list of “The 25 Best Films of the 21st Century So Far.” Times critics A.O. Scott and Manohla Dargis named their picks, with Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood claiming the prize as the best film of the last 16 and a half years. Their list also surveyed some directors for contributions, and in a separate piece, the Times listed the favorites from a half dozen of the biggest directors working today.

‘The Mummy’ Review: A Dark Beginning for a New Cinematic Universe

Tom Cruise is an analog man in a digital world. A master showman, he seems to understand better than almost all of his peers that no amount of computer-generated imagery can replace the simple thrill an audience gets seeing a real person do something incredible. For over 100 years, this has been one of the fundamental appeals of cinema: Watching an actor perform an impossible (and sometimes stupidly dangerous) physical act. There is no length Cruise won’t go to for our entertainment. Even when his movies are bad, Cruise still gives 110 percent, still provides at least a few mind-boggling stunts to enjoy.

The 15 Strangest Movies Based on TV Shows

If you prefer watching people sit on a beach to actually sitting on a beach for Memorial Day weekend, there’s a new Baywatch movie in theaters today, starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. Though Baywatch endured in syndication for over a decade, it’s not like there was a massive fanbase out there begging for a big-screen version; the film, directed by Seth Gordon, is mostly a lighthearted sendup of the old series about heroic lifeguards.

‘Baywatch’ Review: This Might Actually Be Worse Than the TV Show

One of the least funny running jokes in the new Baywatch movie — which is really saying something because there are a lot of unfunny running jokes in the new Baywatch movie — involves these lifeguards constantly inserting themselves into all sorts of situations that fall well beyond their jurisdiction. They refer to laughable old cases that have nothing to do with rescuing drowners, a nod to the old Baywatch TV show that serves as the film’s source material and chief target. But the case the takes up most of the film’s inexplicably expansive runtime (116 minutes! For a Baywatch movie!) is just as absurd, with the lifeguards trying to bring down a drug ring and real-estate swindle centered around their Southern California beach. Ha ... ha?

‘Baywatch’ Red-Band Trailer: This Ain’t Your Hasselhoff’s ‘Baywatch’

There was no jocularity on Baywatch when I was a child. These brave men and women in red bathing suits were doing very important things, like guarding lives, performing CPR, running in slow-motion, and occasionally starting totally random spinoff shows featuring sea monsters. The new Baywatch movie is a new breed of ‘watch. These guys do joke around, constantly. It’s Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron as mismatched partners on the lifeguard scene, joking about one another’s testicles, performing highly unprofessional autopsies, and even arguing over severed limbs. Seriously: Not your Hasselhoff’s Baywatch.

The ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Trailer Teaser Is Here to Maintain Order

The full trailer for Blade Runner 2049 arrives on Monday, but the latest teaser of said trailer is available now and it is ... well it is short. It’s just 15 seconds. But there is some cool stuff in that 15 seconds. Maybe not enough to justify having a separate teaser, but cool stuff all the same, including some new shots of Ryan Gosling’s character and an old shot of Harrison Ford’s character, Rick Deckard.

‘The Dark Tower’ Trailer Aims for the Heart

By this point in a big film’s marketing cycle, we typically would have seen a couple trailers, a ton of posters, lengthy magazine pieces, the works. In contrast, there has been so little concrete info out there on The Dark Tower, which opens in theaters in almost exactly three months, that some people (like, y’know, me) began to doubt whether the movie would open on time, or even if it existed at all.
