Netflix has just released the first official teaser at David Fincher’s “Mank”, in which Amanda portrays American actress Marion Davies. In this film, 1930s Hollywood is reevaluated through the eyes of scathing social critic and alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz (Gary Oldman) as he races to finish the screenplay of Citizen Kane. “Mank” comes out in selected theatres in November, and will be available worldwide on Netflix on December 4.
Awards Watch has just revealed the first look at David Fincher’s “Mank”, the highly-anticipated story behind ‘Citizen Kane’. “Mank” is set for a Fall 2020 release exclusively from Netflix.
Mank is 1930s Hollywood re-evaluated through the eyes of scathing social critic and alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz as he races to finish the screenplay of Citizen Kane for Orson Welles. The film is written by Fincher’s late father Jack Fincher. Although Fincher was an accomplished essayist, with works in Readers Digest, Saturday Review, The Smithsonian, among others, this is his first and only screenplay.
The film follows screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz (Academy Award winner Gary Oldman) during the tumultuous development of Citizen Kane and features a rich cast playing a veritable who’s who of the Golden Age of Hollywood that includes Amanda Seyfried as Marion Davies, Lily Collins as Rita Alexander, Arliss Howard as Louis B. Mayer, Tom Pelphrey as Joe Mankiewicz, Toby Leonard Moore as David O. Selznick, Tom Burke as Orson Welles and Charles Dance as William Randolph Hearst, the millionaire publishing magnate who went to the Earth’s end to keep Citizen Kane – a very thinly veiled examination of Heart’s life – from being released. The film also stars Sam Troughton, Ferdinand Kingsley, Tuppence Middleton, Jamie McShane, Joseph Cross and Monika Gossman.
Originally scheduled for a theatrical release, Universal Pictures has released “You Should Have Left” on VOD on Thursday, June 18. This means I have been able to update with our gallery with over 770 high-quality screen captures of Amanda portraying Susanna Conroy in David Koepp’s 2020 film. Be sure to check out the movie on either Amazon or iTunes.
Based on the 2017 book of the same name by Daniel Kehlmann, “You Should Have Left” tells the story of Theo Conroy (Kevin Bacon), a successful middle-aged man whose marriage to his much younger actress wife, Susanna (Amanda Seyfried) is shredding at the seams, frayed by her secretiveness, his jealousy, and the shadow of his past. In an effort to repair their relationship, Theo and Susanna book a vacation at a stunning, remote modern home in the Welsh countryside for themselves and their six-year-old daughter, Ella (Avery Essex). What at first seems like a perfect retreat distorts into a perfect nightmare when Theo’s grasp on reality begins to unravel and he suspects that a sinister force within the house knows more than he or Susanna have revealed, even to each other.
Blumhouse has just released the first trailer for “You Should Have Left“, starring Amanda and Kevin Bacon. It is set to become available online on Friday, June 19. Produced by Jason Blum, it tells the story of a couple seeking a restful vacation on an isolated edge of the world in the Welsh countryside only to discover that secrets demand a reckoning and travel with them. Their marriage is shredding at the seams, frayed by her secretiveness, his jealousy, and the shadow of his past.

Variety – Warner Bros.’ “Scoob,” an animated film based on “Scooby-Doo” characters, will skip its planned theatrical release and instead launch next month on digital rental services.
Starting May 15, “Scoob” will be available to rent for $19.99 in the U.S. and Canada. It will also be available to buy for $24.99. The movie, geared toward younger audiences, was originally scheduled to debut in theaters on May 15, but was indefinitely delayed as the coronavirus pandemic forced cinemas to close.
“While we’re all eager to be able to once again show our films in theaters, we’re navigating new, unprecedented times which call for creative thinking and adaptability in how we distribute our content,” Warner Bros. CEO Ann Sarnoff said in a statement. “We know fans are eager to see ‘Scoob’ and we’re delighted we can deliver this feel-good movie for families to enjoy while they’re home together.”
The decision to drastically alter release plans for “Scoob” comes after Universal’s announcement that “Trolls World Tour” — which also amended its theatrical rollout in favor of premium video on demand — landed the biggest debut for a digital rental.
The news is another thwack to movie theater owners, who have been adamantly against any attempts to shorten a film’s life span in their venues. Studios have been forced to reshuffle their release calendars, delaying many tentpoles and finding new release dates for others as theaters remain closed with no clear sign of when they can safely reopen.
For the most part, studios have committed to keeping their major movies on the big screen. However, Paramount opted to sell its romantic comedy “The Lovebirds” to Netflix, while Disney sent sci-fi adventure “Artemis Fowl” to Disney Plus, the studio’s streaming service.
“Scoob” was directed by Tony Cervone and follows childhood best friends Shaggy, Fred, Velma and Daphne, who solve crimes along with Shaggy’s pet dog, Scooby-Doo. The voice cast includes Will Forte, Gina Rodriguez, Zac Efron and Amanda Seyfried.
