If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: whenever you need to cast someone as a giant floating face planet, get Kurt Russell. Russell has long been one of our most self-deprecating movie stars, an immensely talented actor with movie star looks who, for some wonderful reason, always preferred to play the buffoon over the action hero. Movies like Big Trouble in Little China and even the more recent The Hateful Eight reveal that Russell is never happier than when making fun of his movie star persona. Continue reading…

Lucasfilm is starting to double down on the marketing efforts for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which hits theaters this December. Earlier this month, the full-length trailer was released to an enthusiastic response, and in the weeks since, more news about the film has come out. Director Gareth Edwards has explained the multiple meanings of the title, members of the cast have reaffirmed the grimy, war drama tone the movie is going for, and some first looks at a handful of tie-in toys were revealed.

Once the promotional campaign for Captain America: Civil War, we started to see glimpses of what everybody wanted to see out of the movie – all of our favorite heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe fighting one another.

Breaking Bad and The Jungle Book star Giancarlo Esposito is hoping to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it turns out that he has no interest in doing so if whoever he plays won't be seen on the big screen. In fact, he's actually spoken to Marvel TV about an unknown role, but turned their offer down after learning that his character wouldn't end up making the leap to the movie side of things. "I know the Marvel world exists on the Disney lot. I love those guys at Marvel," he says.

“Birth of a Nation” director Nate Parker says in an interview with Ebony that his awareness and consciousness about consent have changed since he was acquitted of rape while a college student.

In a recent interview (via Film Music Reporter) with the Icelandic radio station RUV, composer Jóhann Jóhannsson revealed to them that he will indeed be reuniting with director Denis Villeneuve to score his upcoming Blade Runner sequel, which stars Harrison Ford & Ryan Gosling in the lead roles. Plot details for the yet-to-be titled Warner Bros. film are pretty much nonexistent at this point, but the film is due out in theaters October 2017, so we should be learning more relatively soon.

[Warning: Potential SPOILERS for Thor: Ragnarok ahead.] – Since helping to save the day (again) in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor of Asgard has been noticeably absent from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. All is not well with the Nine Realms, though, especially with Loki (Tom Hiddleston) on the throne and the cataclysmic events of Thor: Ragnarok on the way. With filming wrapping up in Brisbane, Australia, which doubled for New York City, the Ragnarok cast and crew are moving back to the Gold Coast.

After three straight weekends at No. 1, Warner Bros. comic book hit “Suicide Squad” is finally going down — and landing harder than initially expected.

This summer was packed with indie surprises and plenty of big blockbusters, but looking at box office earnings for the year in combination with critical reception of some of the bigger movies, it would be easy to look upon the summer of 2016 as more of a failure than a success. Finding Dory has been one of the bigger performers of the summer, but there have not been many other films that have had the same pull.

September is bringing a whole slew of new titles to Netflix Instant, but that also means a bunch are on their way out. You know you need to weep to ‘A Walk to Remember’ one more time, but you also better cross ‘The Bridge on the River Kwai’ off your list before it’s gone for good. Just make sure you leave time for a double feature of ‘Zoolander’ and ‘Crocodile Dundee.’ Also what the heck is ‘My Babysitter’s a Vampire: The Movie?’ I don’t know, but I think you need to add it to your queue immediately before you miss this opportunity.

It’s back to the woods we go in the newest trailer for ‘Blair Witch,’ the surprise sequel to The Blair Witch Project that had one of the coolest reveals in recent memory. Marketed as simply ‘The Woods,’ the film had an early screening at San Diego Comic Con, at which the real title and connection to the original film was announced. When the audience exited the theater after it was over, they saw that during the screening the big poster advertising ‘The Woods’ had been swapped for a ‘Blair Witch’ poster. Continue reading…

Sometimes, when you have a surprise hit on your hands, you get a little bit of freedom to go outside the box with your casting choices on the sequels. That seems to be the approach taken by the producers of Deadpool 2, anyways. A few weeks ago, we wrote about the rumors that Kyle Chander and Mackenzie Davis were atop the wishlist for Cable and Domino, respectively, in the next Deadpool movie. And now Davis has spoken openly about her lack of conversations regarding the role. Continue reading…

I saw I Am Not a Serial Killer at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year and it was one of the most pleasant surprises of the fest. A throwback horror movie that never feels the need to wink or nudge, Billy O’Brien‘s film is slick, sick, and deeply interested in the humanity that lurks behind a monster (and vice versa). It also features the great Christopher Lloyd in his best role in years, playing the elderly neighbor and friend to a teenage sociopath who finds himself pursuing a serial killer in his rural town. I was able to speak with Mr.

Netflix has released a new clip for the upcoming release of Marvel’s Luke Cage. We’ve seen parts of this clip in the trailer, but here Luke Cage (Mike Colter) walks into a gym and confronts the bad guys who he easily knocks away. Then, when they draw down on him, he comments that they obviously haven’t heard about him. Marvel’s Luke Cage premiere’s on September 30th. Luke Cage Is Sick Of Having To Buy New Clothes
If you’re anything like me, it’s probably been a while since you were really excited for a Tim Burton movie. While movies like Big Eyes, Dark Shadows, and Alice in Wonderland all did either OK with critics or at the box office, Burton has made too many wonderful movies in his career for “OK” to feel like anything other than a disappointment. Thankfully, Burton seems to be back on track with Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, a YA adaptation that brings together the conflict of the X-Men with the sense of childish wonder that only Burton can bring to bear.

Don't Breathe, the second feature film from Uruguayan writer-director Fede Alvarez (of 2013's Evil Dead reboot) produced by legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi, is the depraved offspring of Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring and Wes Craven's The People Under the Stairs. It's about a group of teens who try to rob a blind man's house, only to discover he's not as passive as they expected.
In 2014, writer/director Dan Gilroy gained a lot of attention for his drama Nightcrawler, which told the story of aspiring crime journalist Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) and the immoral lengths he would go to to make a name (and money) for himself. The film received a plethora of accolades, including a Best Original Screenplay Oscar nomination for Gilroy.
The Bruce Willis lead remake of the 1974 film Death Wish has added two more actors. Vincent D’Onofrio (Marvel’s Daredevil) and Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) have signed on to the new Eli Roth adaptation of the book by Brian Garfield. The story follows a man named Paul Kersey (Willis) whose world is destroyed by a violent crime against his wife and daughter. When the criminals are not brought to justice, Kersey takes to the streets to hunt them himself. Charles Bronson played Kersey the first time and in four sequels over twenty years.
You probably had no idea today was National Dog Day until you signed on to Twitter or Facebook this morning, but no matter — it’s as good an excuse as any for Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment to drop the first A Dog’s Purpose trailer. Josh Gad voices a dog who keeps getting reincarnated and, over the course of his many lives, finds meaning in his relationships with various humans played by Dennis Quaid, K.J. Apa, John Ortiz, and more. Is that cute or creepy?
The concept of 3D filmmaking has seen a surge in popularity over the past few years, but the trend now appears to be in decline. Of course, this decline shouldn’t surprise anyone, as the popularity of 3D filmmaking has both risen and declined since its arrival in mainstream movie theaters over sixty years ago.
By Will Romine, Age 32 Hi everyone! Remember last week when I told you that I got a peek of the latest episode of Fear the Walking Dead? Well, this week is no different. I got a good look at tomorrow’s episode and I have to say, Fear is packing a lot of storytelling into the back half of season 2. Last episode focused almost exclusively on Nick (Frank Dillane) and this episode picks up right where we left him. He is in a makeshift hospital recovering from his wounds and explores the larger world of post-outbreak Mexico.
Producer Harvey Weinstein sees awards potential in Lion, one of the two contenders he’s betting on this fall. The other awards hopeful film coming from TWC, in Harvey Weinstein’s eyes, is The Founder, based on the life of Ray Kroc. While that biopic is about a man driven by greed, Lion is a more kind-hearted and inspiring tale, about a man (Dev Patel) searching for his family. Below, watch the Lion trailer. Starring alongside Patel are Rooney Mara, Nicole Kidman, and (an actor I’m always delighted to see) David Wenham.
NBC’s Parks and Recreation ended at the exact right time, but that doesn’t mean we don’t miss it now that it’s gone. So if you’re still in mourning, you may find some comfort in the new trailer for My Blind Brother. Sophie Goodhart‘s indie drama stars not one, not two, but three former Pawneeans caught in a love triangle. Nick Kroll, the former Douche, gets to play the nice guy this time, while Adam Scott steps up as the douchey one.

Granted, he revealed this almost in passing during a Periscope chat (at 20:20 of the following video), but what is the League without a Green Lantern.

"That nutty old man is my father." GKids has debuted a trailer for the animated film called Miss Hokusai, which opened in Japan in 2015 and played at numerous film festivals last year. The film is about the life and works of Japanese artist and ukiyo-e painter Katsushika Hokusai, also known as Tetsuzo, as seen from the eyes of his daughter, Katsushika O-Ei. You all know his work because Hokusai painted the very famous piece known as "The Great Wave off Kanagawa". The voice cast includes Anne Watanabe as O-Ei, Yutaka Matsushige as Hokusai, plus Kumiko Asô, Gaku Hamada and Kengo Kôra.
As far as sequels go, Roland Emmerich's Independence Day: Resurgence, which brought back stars Jeff Goldblum & Bill Pullman and teamed them with newcomers Liam Hemsworth, Jessie Usher, & Maika Monroe, didn't quite hit the mark with critics or with fans of the original 1996 blockbuster. It ultimately finished its box office run with a fairly underwhelming $382 million on a $165 million budget. Earlier this week, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment officially detailed the film's upcoming home video release.

While none of them are at household name status quite yet, all three are worth keeping an eye on.
