Everyone’s Making The Same Joke About That ‘Captain Marvel’ Trailer MARVEL The first trailer for Captain Marvel debuted on Tuesday, leaving plenty of people saying “O Captain, my Captain” and making jokes on Twitter. But one particular scene of Brie Larson laying down the law as the titular Captain Marvel (née Carol Danvers) had people talking. Most of the jokes about the trailer came out of people reacting to Captain Marvel punching an elderly woman who is almost definitely — we hope? — a Skrull in disguise: BOOMERS: When I was your age, I made $32k a year and owned a home, a car, and had no debt.

Brett Cullen to play Thomas Wayne in Joaquin Phoenix's Joker Although Alec Baldwin was (briefly) set to play Thomas Wayne in JOKER, the actor dropped out last month leaving Warner Bros. searching for a replacement, and it seems that they've found one in Brett Cullen.

Eddie Murphy to Lead a New Comedy Inspired by ‘Grumpy Old Men’ At 57 years old, it sounds like Eddie Murphy is starting to embrace his age with a new comedy inspired by the 1993 comedy Grumpy Old Men.

The Symbiote looms over Tom Hardy in a new poster for Venom Assuming that you like your movie posters with an ample helping of glistening black goo, and who doesn't, then the latest poster for Sony Pictures' VENOM will be right up your alley as it features the menacing Symbiote front and center.

‘The House with a Clock in Its Walls’ Early Buzz: Fine But Forgettable Family Fun Eli Roth, splatter-horror filmmaker extraordinaire, directing a kid’s movie headlined by Cate Blanchett and Jack Black? With a team like that, how could The House with a Clock in its Walls possibly turn out? Apparently, exactly how you’d expect it to turn out, according to critics. Early buzz of the fantasy film adapting John Bellairs’ 1973 children’s novel of the same name says that The House with a Clock in its Walls has all the hallmarks of its family-fantasy genre and none of the hallmarks of director Roth’s gory repertoire.

Patrick Stewart Joins the 'Charlie's Angels' Reboot; Here's Everything We Know The Angels are heading to the big screen once again. Originally a TV series in the 1970s, Charlie's Angels was later adapted into a 2000 action comedy that continued the canon of the show, and that spawned one sequel three years later. In 2011, there was a TV series reboot on the small screen, but it was very short-lived. Now, Sony is bringing the property back to theaters with a new version that will hopefully start a new film franchise. News on the movie reboot has been slow since its...Read MoreRead Comments

Third Trailer for Illumination's 'The Grinch' with Benedict Cumberbatch "You're a mean one…" Universal & Illumination have debuted a third official US trailer for Dr. Seuss' The Grinch, their new animated take on the classic Christmas story about the lovable green grump the Grinch. Benedict Cumberbatch voices the Grinch. The rest of the voice cast still hasn't been revealed yet, since they don't seem to be in this much. "The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl's generous holiday spirit." The exact same classic Dr.

Timothée Chalamet And Steve Carell Slide Further Into The Oscar Race With The New ‘Beautiful Boy’ Trailer A few months ago, the first Beautiful Boy trailer made the case for Timothée Chalamet’s second Oscar nomination (after 2017’s Call Me By Your Name) quite clear. The second trailer, however, also confirms that Steve Carell has a chance at his second nod from The Academy (following 2014’s Foxcatcher). This film, which is based upon memoirs by David and Nic Sheff, chronicles a son’s efforts to recover from his drug addiction while spiraling into relapse over a period of years.

During their Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles panel for the Television Critics Association, Nickelodeon announced they had already greenlit a second season of the new series.

‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ Will Be Reborn as a Netflix Live-Action Series From the Original Creators Eight years after M. Night Shyamalan desecrated Avatar: The Last Airbender with his feature film that won’t be named, Netflix has announced a second attempt to adapt the matchless Nickelodeon animated series as a live-action show. But wait — before you freak out and go into the Avatar State, there’s a silver lining to this seemingly ill-advised project. Original creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko are on board to oversee the Avatar: The Last Airbender live-action series, which will “reimagine” the beloved Nickelodeon series.

Henry Golding is Becoming Our Bona Fide Romantic Lead Henry Golding has had a hell of a great year. He previously occupied the small screen as a variety show and travel program host, but 2018 marked a big-screen debut unlike any other for him. Jon M. Chu’s Crazy Rich Asians hit the motherlode, staying atop the domestic box office for three weeks with audiences still going back for more a month after its premiere. Vitally, Crazy Rich Asians also serves as an impeccable reminder that representation can be life-changing.

Titans actor Brenton Thwaites doubles down on Robin's 'F*@& Batman' line When Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment dropped their first trailer for TITANS during San Diego Comic-Con in July, many fans of the superhero squad were left feeling taken aback by a particular line of dialogue issued by the group's leader, Robin (played by Brenton Thwaites). You see, after taking a gang of thugs to the School of Hard Knocks, courtesy of a flurry of fists, Robin used the quip... Read More...

BBC’s ‘Laurel and Hardy’ Biopic Promises To Be Heartwarming and Heartbreaking The days of slapstick comedy in its purest form are a relic of Hollywood’s Golden Age. At one time names such as the Charlie Chaplin, the Marx Brothers, and the Three Stooges entertained audiences with innocent shenanigans and brought joy to the lives of families worldwide. They still do.

Getty Image Kelly Marie Tran‘s opportunity to play Resistance ship mechanic Rose Tico in Star Wars: The Last Jedi has led to some high notes (like getting to purchase her own action figure at Target) and some definite lows (like getting harassed by bastard-coated bastards with bastard filling). Tran was harassed by a toxic subset of fandom who seem to think not liking a movie is a valid reason to single out and bully one actor.

The Trailer for Gareth Evans’ ‘Apostle’ Will Unsettle You Welsh director Gareth Evans has spent the better part of a decade putting Indonesian action cinema on the map. The Raid flicks are two of the best balls-to-the-wall adrenaline rushes you’re ever likely to experience watching movies, but there’s more to Evans than blistering martial arts. For his next feature, he’s out to prove that with a period-set horror thriller. Taking place in 1905, Apostle follows a man who travels to a remote British island to retrieve his sister from a cult.

Toronto 2018 Review: THE MAN WHO FEELS NO PAIN, A Big Screen Love Letter To All Things Action There is nothing subtle about Vasan Bala's (Peddlers) second film, The Man Who Feels No Pain. In this boisterous action comedy, Bala's passions and obsessions are writ large across the screen with a genuine affection that is hard to deny. Taking influences from his own action heroes of the '80s and '90s around the world, Bala and his solid leading cast of Abhimanyu Dasani, Radhika Madan, and Gulshan Devaiah express not only reverence for their antecedents, but also attempt to bring their own Indian flair to this lively crowd pleaser.

Since Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is now home for you to watch maybe a few times before you forget about it entirely, it’s time to think about how the movie really should have ended.

Anthony Mackie and Jamie Dornan to Star in Benson And Moorehead's New Film SYNCHRONIC Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, no strangers to these pages over the years, have a new film coming up called Synchronic and Deadline has reported that they have enlisted some next level talent to appear in front of the camera.    Marvel's Anthony Mackie (Captain America and Avengers) and A Private War's Jamie Dornan (he was in some other movies about books that you mom loved?) are the leads for this new film.    The pair will play two New Orleans paramedics, whose lives are ripped apart after encountering a series of horrific deaths link

Lin-Manuel Miranda is best known as the writer and star of the Broadway smash Hamilton, but pretty soon, he may be just as well-known for his work in Disney musicals. After snagging an Oscar nomination for his songwriting work on Moana, Miranda steps in front of the camera in Mary Poppins Returns, where he plays a singing and dancing lamplighter named Jack. With Dick Van Dyke’s Burt nowhere to be seen, Jack gets to fill that role in Rob Marshall’s sequel to the Disney classic.

Nearly 14 years after the premiere of ABC’s mega-hit drama LOST, showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse reunited at the John Ansin Ford Amphitheatre in Los Angeles this past weekend for We Have to Go Back: The LOST Concert 2018.

Stan & Ollie trailer finds Coogan & Reilly transforming into the iconic duo When looking back on the history of show business it’s difficult to imagine a greater duo that Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, an act that made the world a better place to live in – much like peanut butter and jelly.

Creed II will have Adonis Creed facing off against Victor Drago, son of Ivan Drago – the man who killed Adonis’ father, Apollo. That sets Creed II up to seem like less of a boxing drama and more of a revenge thriller. But according to star Michael B. Jordan, there’s a lot more to Creed II than simple revenge. According to the actor, Creed II‘s story is more layered than a simple synopsis might suggest. Creed was fantastic, a powerful, emotional film that took the Rocky mythos and turned it into something fresh and exciting.

Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and caldron bubble. Cool it with a baboon's blood, then Sabrina must decide if she'll walk the path of evil or good.

Things have been relatively quiet in the movie subscription world lately, but today is the day that changes. On the heels of AMC Stubs A-List’s announcement earlier this morning, Sinemia has unveiled a brand new unlimited movie subscription plan that will cost $29.99 per month. The company has been offering unlimited plans to customers in Europe for years, and it sounds like they’ve landed on a sustainable price point to keep that model alive for U.S. audiences.

“We’re not the worst generation. We’re just the most exposed.” On Friday, Netflix dropped season 2 of American Vandal to a certain amount of skepticism. The first season was impeccable, but it felt complete, and many fans wondered where it could go from there. It turns out all those fears were unfounded because season 2 is perfection. It might even be better than the first. The facts are these: Someone drugged the lemonade in the high school cafeteria, and everyone who drank it lost control of their bowels in spectacular fashion.

Zombieland 2 continues to creep along. The long-awaited sequel to the 2009 horror-comedy will go into production sometime in January 2019, according to director Ruben Fleischer who, alongside the original cast, will be returning to the sequel. This will push the Zombieland sequel’s release date past a planned 2019 anniversary release, as early reports had previously suggested.

Although the Quantum Realm played a pivotal part in the plot of Ant-Man and the Wasp, we still don’t know much about this realm. Only reachable when Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) shrinks so impossibly small that he enters a whole other dimension, the Quantum Realm was meant to be impossible to escape — which is why the original Wasp, Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) has spent the past 31 years stuck there. But how did Janet van Dyne survive this abstract, nightmarish realm? By turning into a road warrior-cum-desert nomad it seems — all worn threads and cool steampunk-y masks.

Angelina Jolie Returns to the Thriller Genre in ‘The Kept’ Angelina Jolie hasn’t appeared in a live-action movie since 2015’s By the Sea, a misbegotten passion project in which she co-starred with her then-husband Brad Pitt. But after spending the past few years directing and producing, Jolie is ready to get back in front of the camera again. She’ll make a big return to Disney with Maleficent 2 in 2020, but in the meantime, she’s lined up a new project that will bring her back to the thriller genre for the first time since her 2010 spy film Salt.

You know those miniature Christmas villages you see all the time with adorable hand-crafted detail?

About an hour into director Panos Cosmatos‘ Mandy, something horrible happens. Something so horrible that it breaks Red Miller’s mind. A few scenes later, he is retrieving his long-stashed crossbow from the trailer of a friend, smelting his own homemade battle axe, and driving into a hazy, drug-laced fantasia where the laws of reality have ceased to apply on a mission of vengeance. But first, he watches a macaroni and cheese commercial. And it may be the most important moment in the movie.

The fall movie season, specifically August and September, is notorious for leaving audiences disgruntled and dissatisfied with boring, cheaply made studio dump movies. While fall usually bears bad films, fans can always look forward to the exciting, fresh movies from fall film festivals. Some of the best films of the year premiere at fests like the Toronto International Film Festival or the Venice Film Festival.

Who knows which Marvel Cinematic Universe characters will be alive and which will be (still or newly) dead by the end of Avengers 4, but apparently a handful of them will live on in some way on the small screen. According to Variety with no official word from Disney or Marvel, “second-tier” heroes and villains from the MCU are getting their own series on the Mouse House’s streaming service, Disney Play. The first to be revealed are reprisals of Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen as Loki and Scarlet Witch, respectively, each in their own six-to-eight episode limited series.
