The NY Daily News claims Rambo author David Morrell dislikes Sly Stallone’s new movie ”Rambo: Last Blood.” He tweeted, “I agree with these ‘Rambo: Last Blood’ reviews. This film is a mess. Embarrassed to have my name associated with it.”
David tells Newsweek, “I felt degraded and dehumanized after I left the theater. Instead of being soulful, this new movie lacks one. I felt I was less a human being for having seen it, and today that’s an unfortunate message.”
The movie finished third at the weekend box office with $19 million.
Sylvester Stallone tells the Daily Express that he purposely intimidates his daughters’ boyfriends. ”I do a thing called the Crushing The Hand Test. I work my hands, very much, and they’re very strong, so when I meet her date I really clamp down – and they’re not ready for it. I see their faces changing color, because they wanna be Alpha dog, and I know they’ll never forget it. It’s not intentional, but when you have a daughter, it’s a form of temporary insanity. When some guy walks in the house, you’re not yourself anymore… ”My daughters are like, ‘What are you doing?’ But I just can’t help it.”
Fran Drescher tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that she recently met with rapper Cardi B about starring together in a Nanny reboot. “That was just kind of laying out groundwork.

It can be a grind, but she’s got a baby now and it could be a very comfortable, lovely way to, you know, work, be seen worldwide, and still do mini-concert tours when you’re on hiatus.”

Joaquin Phoenix tells Total Film magazine that he dieted in order to lose 50 pounds to play The Joker. ”It was a horrible diet. In May, I started eating super-clean. Like, just salads, very little dressing. Steamed vegetables, right? And then I’m working out. That got me down to a certain weight. And then I went on the really hardcore diet, which is lettuce and either steamed green beans or steamed asparagus and one apple. And you do that once a day.”
The film opens on October 3rd.
The NY Daily News says Joaquin Phoenix walked out of a press junket last week after a reporter from the Telegraph asked if his new movie ”Joker” “might perversely end up inspiring exactly the kind of people it’s about with potentially tragic results?” Joaquin said, “Why would you . . . ? No . . . no,” before walking off. He later returned for more questions.
