No money in the budget for a Netflix subscription? Or Amazon Prime? Fear not: As long as you have an internet connection, you can still enjoy movie night. Granted, you may not be able to stream Hollywood’s latest, but you can still enjoy gems such as “Apollo 13,” “The Imitation Game” and plenty of classics, all without spending an extra penny.
Here are five services offering totally free (and totally legal) movies you can watch online.
In a normal Oscars week, Jeremy Zimmer would expect to be wearing his best tux, rubbing shoulders with the biggest stars in Hollywood and grabbing canapés with one hand while holding a glass of champagne in the other. This year he expects to be holding nothing more glamorous than a placard.
The moment was the realisation that one of UTA’s clients, the Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, who won the best foreign language Oscar in 2012 and has been nominated in the same category at next Sunday’s Academy Awards, would not be able to attend the ceremony because of President Trump’s proposed ban on visitors from seven majority-Muslim countries.
In a gesture of solidarity with Farhadi, Zimmer announced that, instead of holding its annual Oscars party – a highlight of the glitziest week of Hollywood’s year – UTA would hold a rally in Los Angeles on Friday and donate the $250,000 it would have spent to the American Civil Liberties Union and the International Rescue Committee. With a client list that includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Bryan Cranston, it could be a very glitzy refugee rally.
The live-action remake of Ghost in the Shell is fast-approaching theaters, so of course Hollywood’s marketing machine is churning out more trailers in anticipation. The latest teaser is a two-minute affair diving into “The Major” and her mysterious origins. Little is revealed but there are plenty of hints concerning her previous life. While the government has given her one story, the film’s shady villain, a damaged but dangerous cyborg called Kuze, is offering another, quite different version. Much of the movie, it seems, will focus on The Major hunting Kuze and the truth simultaneously.
