The movie “Billionaire Boys Club,” which was shot before allegations surfaced against the actor, will be released via video on demand next month and in theaters in August.
The latest dramatization of the 1973 kidnapping of J. Paul Getty’s grandson, on FX, captures the family’s dysfunction in all its Shakespearean glory.
Up for an Oscar for playing J. Paul Getty, a part that initially went to Mr. Spacey, Mr. Plummer recalls thinking: “To hell with it, I’m doing it.”
The donation will be made in the name of Michelle Williams, Mr. Wahlberg’s co-star in the movie “All the Money in the World,” after an outcry about pay discrepancy in reshoots for the film.
Mark Wahlberg received $1.5 million for reshoots of the kidnapping drama after it cut out the disgraced Spacey. Michelle Williams got just a small per diem.
The year’s three most popular movies in North America were driven by female characters: “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” “Beauty and the Beast” and “Wonder Woman.”
Mr. Plummer, who replaced Kevin Spacey in the role of J. Paul Getty, is magnetic in the film, which recounts the 1973 kidnapping of his grandson.
“I took action,” the director Ridley Scott said of his whirlwind reshoot of “All the Money in the World,” which featured Christopher Plummer in a role originally filmed by Mr. Spacey.
The movie originally featured Kevin Spacey as J. Paul Getty. After sexual misconduct accusations against him, he was replaced and his scenes reshot.
