While this is our last season, we’re very proud that it will be on our service for years to come, and excited to be working with Spike on his upcoming Netflix film Da 5 Bloods,” said Netflix exec Ted Sarandos.

Martin Scorsese Gets Support from Spike Lee at 'Bob Dylan Story' Premiere!

Martin Scorsese happily strikes a pose with director Spike Lee attend the premiere screening of Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story held at the Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center on Monday (June 10) in New York City.

The Oscar-winning director also got support from Bobby Cannavale, Diane Warren and Fran Lebowitz at the event.

Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese captures the troubled spirit of America in 1975 and the joyous music that Bob Dylan performed during the fall of that year. Part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream, ‘Rolling Thunder’ is a one of a kind experience, from master filmmaker Martin Scorsese.

The film, which hits Netflix tomorrow (June 12), goes beyond mere reclamation of Dylan’s extraordinary music—it’s a roadmap into the wild country of artistic self-reinvention.

Julia Roberts, Jamie Foxx Hit The Stage at Denzel Washington's AFI Tribute!

Julia Roberts is all smiles as she hits the stage at the 2019 AFI Life Achievement Award ceremony honoring Denzel Washington held at the Dolby Theatre on Thursday (June 6) in Hollywood.

The 51-year-old Oscar-wining actress was joined at the event by Jamie Foxx, Frances McDormand, Jennifer Hudson, Morgan Freeman, Spike Lee and Antoine Fuqua.

“I met Denzel Washington over half my life ago, while we made The Pelican Brief,” Julia expressed during her speech (via USA Today). “Working with Denzel, I have never seen anything like it, honestly. It was like working, as I would imagine, with The Beatles. People screaming, women fainting in the street…but what I remember so well was meeting (your wife) Pauletta and your kids and seeing how you valued your family, your home life above all else…and now I live my life with those same values. The two of you inspired me then, and continue to inspire me today.”

Jamie shared a personal story: “I’ve had Denzel to my house. I like saying that because not a lot of people get a chance to do that,” he laughed. “He sat at the table, and he talked to all of the young actors who were coming up, and all the young actresses…That night he talked to all of us, and he made us all feel like absolutely we could do it. Thank you for taking that night out to help some people grow, man.”
