A considerably longer version of Terrence Malick’s Palme d’Or winning 2011 film “The Tree of Life” is coming to the Criterion Collection with a rep confirming a new take that’s almost an hour longer and comes in just short of three hours long at 179 minutes.

The movie became something of legend years ago after cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki revealed that Malick had assembled a rumored a six-hour cut of the movie. That didn’t happen, but this new version isn’t pegged as a director’s cut rather it is a new take on the film with a different rhythm to it – similar to his revised cut of 2005’s “The New World”.

The clip will NOT include any new footage from the universe creation segment, instead it will flesh out the family and character stuff including family members entirely cut out of the original film, a closer look at Brad Pitt’s character’s upbringing, and a major natural catastrophe element.

On warm days like we are now experiencing now, in the Erie region, water is something we all need. We have access to clean drinking water, but that’s not the case in other parts of the world, like in Africa.

In Erie, the mother of Hollywood Actor Brad Pitt, teamed up with her daughter, to help raise money and awareness for clean drinking water.

The two travel across the world, and on Wednesday, they were at the Kahkwa Club for a luncheon called “Let It Pour.” Julie Pitt Neal is a mother of five. Two of her children are adopted from Ethiopia. Her brother, Doug Pitt, works with the organization Africa 6000 International.

The Erie event helped raise funds for Africa 6000 so that a deep, clean water well can be drilled in Ethiopia.

Quentin Tarantino is expanding the cast of his upcoming film Once Upon a Timie In Hollywood. He is in talks with Burt Reynolds to play George Spahn, and also in early discussions with his The Hateful Eight co-stars Tim Roth, Kurt Russell and Michael Madsen to play smaller roles in the film. They would join Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, who are already set.

Margot Robbie, who we first told you was Tarantino’s choice to play Sharon Tate in the movie set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969 before the Manson murders were committed, has also been confirmed for the film, Sony has confirmed. The studio has set it for an August 9, 2019 release worldwide.

Reynolds has a great role in front of him, maybe the best one the iconic Deliverance star has gotten since Boogie Nights. Spahn was an 80-year-old near-blind man who rented his L.A. ranch out to be used as the location for Westerns. Charlie Manson convinced Spahn to allow him and his followers to live on the ranch, in the months before they murdered Tate and six others. In exchange for rent, Manson coerced his female followers into hopping into bed with the ranch owner, and serving as his seeing-eye guides, per reports.

Jonathan Majors of the ABC miniseries When We Rise and Jimmie Fails have a new gig in the movie The Last Black Man in San Francisco. The film brings together Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B with A24. The two entertainment companies previously worked together on Moonlight, which won an Academy for Best Picture.

The film is inspired by Fails’ true-life story. The movie will follow Fails as a young man who lives in San Francisco’s last Black neighborhood with his best friend, played by Majors. The gentrification tale is centered around the two friends who devise a plan to buy back a Victorian home that was built by Fails’ grandfather.

Joe Talbot will be directing the movie from a screenplay he wrote with Rob Richert. This is Talbot’s first feature film as director and it will also feature Danny Glover, Tichina Arnold, Mike Epps, Thora Birch, Rob Morgan, and Finn Wittrock.

“We got sunshine in the west, the south, the east and over here in the north, the ice caps are melting.”
One of late-night television’s most unusual partnerships returned Tuesday, when Brad Pitt suited up once again to play The Jim Jefferies Show’s doom-forecasting weatherman.

Satirically purporting to give a weather forecast for basketball season, Pitt started off his segment with a “joke” that was actually a morbid observation on climate change. “I was hanging out with LeBron James and he said, ‘How’s the weather down there?’ Because he’s tall. And I said, ‘The same as it is up there — changing at a pace not before seen in the history of man. Your legacy is pointless. Our people and our memories will all burn.'”

After host Jim Jefferies became exasperated with his depressing colleague and asked him to give an actual forecast, Pitt’s forecaster responded, “We got sunshine in the west, the south, the east and over here in the north, the ice caps are melting. And I am so, so, so, so scared.”
