Bill Murray Speaks; Oscar Isaac on Moon Knight; Spider-Man 4

Bill Murray addresses an instance of “insensitive” behavior on set of Being Mortal; Oscar Isaac explains why he had to think for a minute before saying yes to Marvel’s Moon Knight; French films are having a moment; Sam Raimi would consider doing Spider-Man 4 with Tobey Maguire; the trailer for Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling. All in today’s Movie News Rundown.

Box Office: A24’s Everything Everywhere All At Once hit $35 million after six weeks at the box office — a sum Variety calls “impressive for an arthouse flick.”

More Box Office: No. 1 at the box office this weekend was Pierre Perifel’s The Bad Guys, and at No. 2, Jeff Fowler’s Sonic The Hedgehog 2, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which adds that most moviegoers are probably waiting for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness to come out on Friday.

Bill Murray Speaks: In a television interview on CNBC, Bill Murray addressed an instance of “insensitive” behavior between Murray and an unnamed female co-star that caused the production of Being Mortal — the new film he was set to star in directed by Aziz Ansari — to be suspended last month. “I did something I thought was funny, and it wasn’t taken that way,” Murray told CNBC’s Becky Quick on Saturday. “I’ve been doing not much else but thinking about it for the last week or two… the world’s different than it was when I was a little kid. What I always thought was funny as a little kid isn’t necessarily the same as what’s funny now.” Watch his full remarks in the interview here.

Peacocking: There’s some intriguing stuff coming to NBC’s streaming platform Peacock in 2023, including a new film called Shooting Stars from LeBron James, Praise This from Will Packer, and a reimagining of The Killer from John Woo, according to Deadline.

Need Something to Watch Right Now?: If you like French movies and you haven’t checked out I Love America on Amazon Prime Video yet, I highly recommend it. It’s a cute, quirky, half-English, half-French rom-com about a jaded-by-love 50-something French woman who comes to Los Angeles and falls in love with a much younger man she meets on a dating app. Check out my conversation with director Lisa Azuelos, who based the character on herself and her own experiences, here.

Speaking of French Movies: Here’s another rec for you: Anaïs in Love directed by Charline Bourgeois-Tacquet, who also based the plot of this film on an affair she had in real life. I love these amazing French women. This one is currently showing in theaters and will hit VOD on May 6. I spoke with Bourgeois-Tacquet all about this simply lovely movie, which follows a 30-year-old woman named Anaïs who has an affair with a married man only to toss him aside and proceed to fall in love with his wife. Incroyable!

This Is Only the Beginning: Of my French film coverage here at MovieMaker — just wait until Audrey Diwan’s Happening hits theaters on Friday. I’m looking forward to talking about it.

Spider-Man 4: Sam Raimi’s talk about Spider-Man 4 in a Rolling Stone interview has got Twitter in a tizzy this morning over the possibilities of Tobey Maguire returning. “If there was a great story there, I think it’d be … my love for the characters hasn’t diminished one iota,” Raimi said. “It would be the same things that would stop me now that stopped me then: ‘Does Tobey want to do it? Is there an emotional arc for him? Is there a great conflict for this character? And is there a worthy villain that fits into the theme of the piece?’ There’s a lot of questions that would have to be answered. If those could be answered, then I’d love to.”

Oscar Isaac Opens Up: About the pros and cons of starring in big-budget blockbusters, and why he hesitated before saying yes to Marvel’s Moon Knight. Oscar Isaac was tired after so many Star Wars films, and was looking forward to taking some smaller, less committed roles and just being a dad… that is, until he became Steven Grant, a character his kids love when he does the voice at home. Read the full interview from The Times.

‘Bad Timing’: “I wasn’t, at that point, super eager to jump into a big production. I wanted to fall in love with acting again. I was a bit tired,” Oscar Isaac told The Times. “I’ve got two young kids, and I was ready to take a step back, do smaller films that weren’t as big of a commitment. When this came, my immediate sense was, ugh, this is bad timing.”
