Top Movie News for June 15, 2019

‘Dark Phoenix’ Director Simon Kinberg Blames Himself For The Film’s Failure 20th Century Fox Comic book movies almost never bomb, so when they do it’s a big deal. The most recent example: a little movie called Dark Phoenix. It’s the latest — and almost certainly final — X-Men picture, and it opened to poor reviews and relative puny box office last weekend. Need someone to blame?

‘Captain Marvel’ Deleted Scene Has Jude Law Talking to Himself What’s better than Jude Law? How about two Jude Laws? A newly released Captain Marvel deleted scene gives viewers a chance for twice the Law in one scene, in which the actor’s character in the film has a conversation with…himself. Sort of. In Captain Marvel, the alien race known as the Kree is ruled by a being known as the Supreme Intelligence. The Supreme Intelligence appears to the Kree in different forms – usually the person they admire the most. And sure enough, the person Jude Law admires the most is Jude Law.

Ex: We talk Shaft with Samuel L. Jackson, Richard Roundtree and more! Who's the cat that won't cop out when there's danger all about? SHAFT! Now that that is (necessarily) out of the way, we're talkin' about SHAFT with the cast and director of the new reboot. Hard to believe, SHAFT came out almost fifty years ago, and the name shows no signs of slowing down. Directed by Tim Story, the new SHAFT brings together three generations of the legendary name: the O.G. played by Richard Roundtree, his son, John Shaft (Samuel L. Jackson),… Read More...

X-Men editor John Ottman shares abandoned script centered on Beast Despite the countless number of mutants to call themselves X-Men, the only two who were ever given their own film in the franchise are Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds).

Emily Blunt might return as well, along with rumored new cast members on the human side, Cillian Murphy and Brian Tyree Henry.

The biggest story change in the upcoming Child’s Play remake involves technology. While the original Chucky was simply a doll, the new Chucky is more akin to a robot – he has built-in A.I., and he can use that to manipulate other electronic devices around him. In a sense, the film is asking: “What if the Amazon Echo got a body, and started stabbing people?” In a new Child’s Play clip, the evils of technology are explored as Chucky goes haywire. Child’s Play Clip Artificial intelligence takes a horrifying turn in Child’s Play.
