Sons of Apollo Creed and Ivan Drago face off in 'Creed II'

The sons of Apollo Creed and Ivan Drago will pick up where their fathers left off more than 30 years ago.

MGM and Warner Bros. Pictures on Wednesday released the first trailer for "Creed II," the sequel to the 2015 "Rocky" spinoff.

Michael B. Jordan returns as Adonis Creed, with Sylvester Stallone by his side as former heavyweight champ and trainer Rocky Balboa. In the trailer, Balboa warns Creed his opponent is dangerous.

Creed is training to box Viktor Drago, the son of Ivan Drago, who killed Apollo Creed in "Rocky IV." Romanian boxer and kickboxer Florian Munteanu plays Viktor.

"Creed II" is directed by Steven Caple Jr.

The eighth film in the "Rocky" franchise is scheduled to be in theaters Nov. 21.

Film starring Kevin Spacey to be released in August

Kevin Spacey was erased from "All the Money in the World" and booted from "House of Cards," but a movie starring the disgraced actor is going forward with a summer release.

Vertical Entertainment announced that it will release "Billionaire Boys Club" on video-on-demand on July 17 and in theaters August 17. The film is about young wealthy men in Los Angeles who run a Ponzi scheme. It stars Ansel Elgort, Taron Egerton and Spacey.

"Billionaire Boys Club" was shot in 2015, before Spacey was accused last fall of sexual assault and inappropriate behavior by numerous people. Spacey apologized to one accuser, "Star Trek" actor Anthony Rapp, who said Spacey tried to force himself on Rapp in the 1980s. At the time, Rapp was 14.

"We don't condone sexual harassment on any level and we fully support victims of it," the film distributor said in a statement. "At the same time, this is neither an easy nor insensitive decision to release this film in theaters, but we believe in giving the cast, as well as hundreds of crew members who worked hard on the film, the chance to see their final product reach audiences."

Other companies have elected to remove Spacey entirely from their productions.

After shooting was completed but before the film was released, Sony Pictures and director Ridley Scott chose to reshoot large parts of "All the Money in the World" with Christopher Plummer in Spacey's role. "House of Cards" producer Media Rights Capital, opted to move forward with a sixth and final season of "House of Cards," but without Spacey. Netflix scrapped a Gore Vidal biopic starring Spacey.

Council of Europe asks Russia to release jailed filmmaker

The head of Europe's human rights body is calling on Russia to release an imprisoned Ukrainian filmmaker who has been on hunger strike for a month.

Thorbjorn Jagland, secretary of the Council of Europe, met Wednesday with Russian human rights commissioner Tatiana Moskalkova and said Oleg Sentsov "should be released on humanitarian grounds," the Interfax news agency reported.

Sentsov, a vocal opponent of Russia's annexation of Crimea, was sentenced in 2015 to 20 years for conspiracy to commit terror acts. He went on hunger strike in mid-May.

Separately Wednesday, Sentsov's lawyers said the European Court of Human Rights had called on Sentsov to end his hunger strike and for Russia to provide details by June 27 about his condition and how his rights are being ensured.

Paris Fashion Week menswear shows kick off

Fashion editors, bloggers, photographers and buyers cried "Bonjour Paris" Wednesday as the first full day of menswear fashion shows kicked off in the French capital.

Edgy brand Off-White drew renewed attention at its show, thanks to the meteoric rise of its African-American designer Virgil Abloh — now chief of Louis Vuitton menswear.

Some highlights of the spring and summer menswear shows:

PROUD FAMILY AT OFF-WHITE

The parents of American-Ghanaian designer Virgil Abloh were the image of pride as they sat front row at Off-White — the Milan-based house their son founded in 2013 — in the sweltering Palace of Chaillol that overlooks the Eiffel Tower.

They had jetted to Paris for the first time from Rockford, Illinois to support their son, who on Thursday debuts his wares at the Louis Vuitton show. He's the first African-American to head up a major global design house.

"It's unbelievable. We're so proud of him. Very incredible," said his mother Eunice Abloh, who sat next to her husband Nee.

"We flew in. We're being treated very well. It's my first time in Paris — and it's beautiful," she added.

OFF-WHITE'S BLUE DENIM

Denim, denim and then more denim.

That was the formula employed at the Milan-based house for spring-summer to produce a hip, urban, loose and highly masculine aesthetic.

Steel-blue denim opened the show. A denim shirt with frayed sleeve edges sported utilitarian metal zippers and was accessorized with a jangling key chain, while the hem down denim pants curved round, instead of vertically down, in a hip-hop style.

Oversize white T-shirts with logos, retro sneakers and an oversize color-blocked, tie-dye style coat added an on-trend whiff of the '80s in the collection that never forgot to have fun.

White confetti fell from snow machines at one point to a slurred remix of Bing Crosby's "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas," prompting chuckles from front row attendees who saw irony at the snowfall during a spring-summer collection, in the sweltering Paris heat, in which many of the models were topless.

The collection stood out for using models from different ethnic backgrounds — sadly, a rarity for many Paris shows.

TAKASHI MURAKAMI

The edgy styles of Off-White that have garnered Abloh a cult-like following attract diverse guests.

Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami — who's famed for blurring the lines between high- and low-art and whom Christie's ranks as the sixth highest-selling living artist — said he attended the show to support his friend.

"Virgil and I we've got a really good friendship. That's why I'm here. But I'm very much excited about Vuitton," he said from beneath an oversize silver toggle hat.

Murakami said that Abloh's appointment will be positive for the industry as his aesthetic is inclusive, and added it's a good direction for fashion to have an African-American at the helm of the major brand.

"It's much more democratic so young people can get involved more and more," he said.

FACETASM'S BRIDAL WORKMAN

Designer Hiromichi Ochiai didn't disappoint those expecting the wackily-creative from Japanese house Facetasm.

The fashion-forward designer's touchstone of workman's clothes was given an unusual bridal twist in Wednesday's collection that mixed mens' and women's styles, as well as punk, preppy and eclectic aesthetics.

One of the first looks showcased on a female model was a hybrid between a workman's overall — with big utilitarian pocket — and a white tulle bridal gown.

The model's hair channeled Madonna's "Like a Virgin" styles, worn with voluminous '80s earrings, and evoked a punk going down the church aisle.

Elsewhere, a blue navy shirt had the oversize silhouette of a worker's top, yet was gently perforated like lace.

It was a clever touch that demonstrates why Ochiai commands a strong following. The Tokyo-founded company has won plaudits for its conceptual styles with hints of punk.

AMC taking on MoviePass with new movie ticket program

AMC Theatres is rolling out its own movie ticket program as it looks to take on the success of MoviePass.

MoviePass, a startup that was letting customers watch a movie a day at theaters for just $10 a month, announced in April that it's limiting new customers to four movies a month.

AMC said Wednesday that members of its rewards program will be able to see up to three movies a week for $19.95 per month as part of its Stubs A-List tier. The movie ticket program starts on June 26.

Moviegoers partaking in Stubs A-List will be able to see films at any showtime, any AMC location and any format, including IMAX, Dolby Cinema, RealD 3D, Prime and BigD.

AMC Theatres unveils $20-a-month rival to MoviePass

AMC Theatres, the world's largest movie theater chain, on Wednesday unveiled a $20-a-month subscription service to rival the flagging MoviePass.

The theater chain announced a new service to its loyalty program, AMC Stubs, allowing subscribers to see up to three movies a week for a monthly fee of $19.95. That's more expensive than the $9.95 monthly fee for MoviePass, but AMC's plan gives access to premium format screenings like IMAX and 3-D.

The new subscription model is the latest salvo in a heated battle for what the movie business most craves: frequent moviegoers. AMC, which has blocked MoviePass sales at some of its theaters, has been a vocal opponent of MoviePass' model. But subscription services are popular among Millennials, who have proven difficult for theaters to attract.

AMC Theatres chief executive Adam Aron pointedly noted Wednesday that AMC's program was set at "a sustainable price." Since MoviePass slashed its monthly fee, questions have mounted over the long-term viability of its economics.

"AMC Stubs A-List is being taken to market at more than double the price of that charged by some of our competitors," Aron said in a conference call with investors. "A good deal to consumers to be sure, but being done at a sustainable price point where we can be very confident that we will be profitable across the membership base and in turn, that we can share that increased profitability with our studio and premium format partners."

Added Aron: "Other discounters, by contrast, will continue to be hemorrhaging cash."

MoviePass has attracted 3 million members, but the stock price of the service's parent company, Helios and Matheson, has dropped from $38 a share to 44 cents a share. MoviePass pays for full-priced tickets and sells them at a discounted rate in order to capitalize on user data.

AMC Stubs A-List membership plan, which also features concessions discounts, will debut Tuesday. Unlike MoviePass, subscribers will be allowed to see all three movies on the same day, and can watch the same movie repeatedly. Movies won't carry over if a subscriber sees fewer than three films in a week.

AMC is estimating that subscription members will see an average of 2.5 movies a month. The theater chain expects the service could cost the company $5-10 million in ticket revenue in the next six months, but that those losses are worth future gains.
