Top Movie News for March 25, 2017

‘Justice League’ Trailer Breakdown There’s a SUPER sized hole in this one.If you haven’t heard Warner Bros and DC are moving ahead with their Justice League adaptation with director Zack Synder at the helm. This is despite dismal reviews of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. It wouldn’t be fair to Justice League to put those same expectations on it though, even if it is from the same creative team, because it could be good. Right?The marketing thus far for Justice League has done an excellent job of reminding you Superman is dead.

Deadpool Crashes Spider-Man: Homecoming in Fan Poster Deadpool is generating plenty of buzz these days, even though the highly anticipated Deadpool 2 isn’t due out until 2018. Ryan Reynold’s foul-mouthed vigilante recently popped up in a surprise teaser attached to Logan, and next year’s sequel continues to draw attention surrounding the casting of the role of Cable.

Chris Pratt Thinks ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ Sucks And You Should Too Either that or he thinks it’s the second coming. It couldn’t possibly be somewhere in between. Chris Pratt and James Gunn are both active on social media and they both appear to love trolling fans. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has started to pre-sell tickets so Pratt took to facebook to sing the praises of the movie while Gunn took a screenshot and posted it to instagram. That we're gonna win a gold medal for that skiing with the gun is a bit of a push, but other than that @prattprattpratt is right on target here. Get your tickets now – link in my bio.

Akira: Lights Out & Life Helmers Eyed to Direct For years now, Hollywood has been attempting to tap into one of the last great sources of media to adapt: anime and manga. Recent years have seen the trend finally kick in, as Ghost in the Shell and Death Note movies are on their way. Of course, both of these films have come with plenty of controversy attached, as white stars are often substituted for the traditionally Japanese characters.

‘Sing Street’ Bully Ian Kenny Joins the Han Solo Spin-Off Cast Last week brought the tiniest of updates regarding the Star Wars spin-off film that will focus on Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo. Not only did we learn the name of the character that Woody Harrelson will be playing (which didn’t really tell us anything), but Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed some vague details about what we’ll see unfold in the movie.

Universal Moves Forward With Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Channing Tatum's R-Rated Musical Last February, it was announced that Universal Pictures had won a bidding war for an untitled R-rated musical comedy written by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the screenwriter behind 21 Jump Street. While little was known about the film at the time, Variety reported that Godon-Levitt had also enlisted Channing Tatum  —  noted dancer and Professional Handsome Man  —  to co-star with him in the film. Since that announcement, things were pretty quiet about the project until just this past week, where suddenly a flurry of updates were released by Universal Pictures. Continue reading…

Things are heating up in the negotiations between the Writers Guild of America and film and television producers. According to a report from Deadline, negotiations have broken down, with the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers claiming the guild “broke off” negotiations yesterday and WGA sending a letter to its members calling for authorization to strike. The two groups have until May 1 to make a deal, but if a strike goes forward, it could be trouble for the film industry.

Netflix Signs Adam Sandler To New Four Movie Deal, Valiantly Keeping Him Out Of Movie Theaters Diving in front of the bullet once again, Netflix has re-upped its deal with Adam Sandler to produce four more feature films for the streaming service, which will tie the actor up for years and likely prevent him from taking major roles in any live action films with theatrical releases. Sandler has already produced two films so far, The Ridiculous 6 and The Do-Over, which you may remember from seeing them at the top of Netflix’s homepage for a few weeks in 2015 and 2016 respectfully before promptly scrolling down and watching something that isn’t a new Adam Sandler movie.

Fear The Walking Dead will be going into its third season later this year and at the helm is writer Dave Erickson. But, if the series continues after that it will be without their showrunner. Erickson has announced that he will be stepping down at the end of the season and that he has signed a multi-year overall deal with AMC, the network behind The Walking Dead franchise.

"Pirates had infected the seas for generation, so I vowed to eliminate them all. Jack Sparrow cursed me. I will have my revenge." Disney has launched a new 60-second trailer preview for the new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth Pirates movie so far. This new trailer focuses primarily on Javier Bardem as Captain Salazar, telling us a bit more of his story about how he was "cursed" by Jack Sparrow, and has come back from the dead to get his revenge. Johnny Depp is back as Captain Jack, along with Geoffrey Rush as Barbossa.

Fate of the Furious Poster: Never Give Up on Family The Fast & Furious franchise has evolved from a semi-serious 2001 B-movie about underground auto-racing to something like a multicultural superhero franchise – where a strategically diverse surrogate family of car fanciers engage in ever more unlikely action-adventure scenarios (most recently, becoming friendly allies of a covert government agency who conscripts them to tackle a surprisingly large number of car-based super criminals).

Lego Batman Causes Trouble For Trump Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin If you prefer your executive branch of government loaded with fat cats from the comics, entertainment, and pro wrestling industry, than WWE Hall of Famer Donald Trump is the president for you. Advising Trump on veterans’ healthcare is Marvel Chairman Ike Perlmutter, who has donated millions of dollars to Trump’s campaign. Linda McMahon, former CEO of pro wrestling company WWE is the head of Trump’s Small Business Administration, and also a campaign donor and longtime associate.

Now, Ford admitted landing on a parallel taxiway where an American Airlines flight was about to take off from was a mistake.

Netflix will bring subscribers Godzilla: Monster Planet sometime later this year, which will first open in Japan this November. The animated movie is the 30th Toho-produced Godzilla picture. Kobun Shizuno (Detective Conan) and Hiroyuki Seshita (Ajin) co-directed the picture, which is set 20,000 years in the future when Godzilla and monsters rule the Earth. Below, learn more about the Godzilla animated movie. Godzilla: Monster Planet is the first official animated addition to the franchise.

Werner Herzog’s Queen of the Desert will finally make its way to North America in 2017 and (naturally) there’s a new trailer trumpeting the historical drama’s arrival. The film, released in Germany way back yonder in the simpler days of 2015, features Nicole Kidman as British traveler/writer/archaeologist/spy/explorer/political officer Gertrude Bell. Here’s the bluffer’s guide to what the motion picture offers: Gertrude Bell (Kidman) chafes against the stifling rigidity of life in turn-of-the-century England, leaving it behind for a chance to travel to Tehran.

While Marvel Studios was able to build its MCU on the back of more famous heroes like Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, and Thor, another big focus of the enterprise so far has been establishing some of the company’s lesser-known characters with the masses at large that don’t generally read comics.

Jurassic World rebooted the Jurassic Park franchise without feeling the need to bring back any of the main actors from the first three movies (only relatively minor player B.D. Wong was asked to make a return appearance). This made zero difference at the box office, as Jurassic World brought in $1.67 billion worldwide. Evidently, as long as you have dinosaurs and Chris Pratt, you have the formula for massive profits. That same basic formula will be employed when the currently-filming sequel Jurassic World 2 hits theaters in 2018, with B.D.

Zombieland Director To Helm Valiant's Archer & Armstrong DC. Marvel. Industry giants, yet not the only names in comics. Not by a long shot.Valiant is one such company that has been around for quite a while, founded in 1989 by former Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Jim Shooter and Steven Massarsky. Like the two industry leaders, we have the Valiant Universe including such titles as X-O Manowar, Harbinger, and Shadowman.

Animals is one of the strangest shows to hit the small screen in the past few years. It imagines what the creatures in and around New York City would do if they had recognizable human problems – insecurity, parenting issues, dealing with bullying, marital struggles, experimenting with drugs…the works.

Kurt Russell and Sylvester Stallone Will Return for More Marvel Movies As someone who loves Kurt Russell more than I love my own wife (don’t tell her), nothing could have made me more excited for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 than the addition of Russell. Not only is Russell’s love of dim-witted characters a perfect match for the universe that director James Gunn has created, the film will also hopefully  —  and I cannot believe I’m saying this  —  introduce the actor to a generation of movie fans who have never seen iconic films like Escape From New York and, more importantly, Big Trouble in Little China.

Kong: Skull Island is proving to be a huge hit for Legendary Pictures. The second entry in their shared MonsterVerse is performing strong all around the world thanks to its blend of action and comedy, all wrapped in period trappings. Plus, there’s all those exciting monsters. Though it takes place in the ’70s, the film still ties into 2014’s Godzilla, and helps to set up the sequel King of Monsters. After that, the two giants will be duking it out in 2020 with Kong vs.

Broad Green Lands Ciarán Foy To Direct Horror Pic, ELI Ciarán Foy (Sinister 2) is moving on with horror thriller, Eli, directing for Broad Green Pictures. The news comes two years since the film landed on the Black List in 2015 from scribe David Chirchirillo and now has Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing onboard for rewrites with Intrepid Pictures's Trevor Macy and Bellevue Productions's John Zaozirny producing. Intrepid's Melinda Nishioka will co-produce with Gabriel and Daniel Hammond executive producing for Broad Green.

The doctor is out, and The Knick is no more. The Steven Soderbergh-helmed period medical drama has officially been canceled by Cinemax after two critically acclaimed seasons. The news comes more than a year after the Season 2 finale, which seemed pretty — erm — final for one particular main character. Spoilers ahead, of course, as we linger on this show’s demise. It seems like the death of Clive Owen’s Dr. John Thackery’ in the season 2 finale of The Knick spelled doom for the Cinemax show.

Dan Stevens may have first gained fame as Matthew Crawley on Downton Abbey (and broken many hearts by leaving the show early), but the actor has long-since moved on from that popular role to forge a reputation as a performer who can do a lot more than wear a suit, talk posh and look handsome.

"All this anger, man… It just begets greater anger." Fox Searchlight has revealed an official trailer for the new dark comedy from filmmaker Martin McDonagh, of the movies In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths previously. The title is Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which is quite an impressive title for a film, but I like it because it is so unique.
