Titanic Is Leaving Netflix, but Don't Worry Because There's a Whole Bunch of Nicolas Cage Coming

19 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Netflix taketh, and Netflix giveth back. Kind of. Every month the streaming site sends out an update of what content will be disappearing from streaming, and what movies and TV shows will be added. It's an announcement we've come to expect, but this time around the swap out is kind of...weird. Or awesome, depending on your feelings about Nicolas Cage. First let us explain. There are some seriously good picks leaving Netflix in just a matter of days— titles like Driving Miss Daisy, Family Ties, Kiss The Girls and Jiro Dreams of Sushi. And who could forget Titanic? Everyone's favorite version of Leonardo DiCaprio (get out of here, Great Gatsby fans!) is no longer going to be »

Review: The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?

22 hours ago | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Put a group of movie lovers in a pub, give them a few beers and one topic that will inevitably come up is speculation about films that were never made, and top of that list is usually Tim Burton’s infamous Superman movie.

As something of a more than casual Superman fan, I have to admit that my personal preference for the best portrayal of the Man of Steel on screen, whether big or small, is Christopher Reeve’s iconic take in Richard Donner’s Superman (1978) and Superman II (1980). I’ve got nothing particularly against Richard Lester’s version of the sequel, but Donner’s more than nails it for me.

That said, I can’t help but wonder, and have on many an occasion in the afore mentioned alcohol fuelled debates with my cinephile friends, just what Superman would have looked like if played by Nicolas Cage and directed by Tim Burton. »

Tye Sheridan on Getting Locked Up in 'Stanford Prison Experiment' and Joining the 'X-Men'

In the four years since making his acting debut opposite Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain in Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life," Sheridan has continued to work with some of the biggest and most acclaimed names in the business, including Jeff Nichols and Matthew McConaughey on "Mud," David Gordon Green and Nicolas Cage on "Joe," Rodrigo Garcia and Ewan McGregor on "Last Days in the Desert" and more.

Better the Devil You Show: Neveldine’s Solo Outing Can’t Quite Reach its Inner Demon

It’s hard to figure out who these religious themed horror films are made for. Director Mark Neveldine, stepping out on his own for the first time following four co-directed efforts with Brian Taylor (the team behind the Crank films and that Nicolas Cage sequel Ghost Rider), can’t seem to provide an answer with this derivative hunk of spiritually solicited scares, yanking plot points from ye classic films of yonder, like The Omen and The Exorcist, but whittled down to a palatable PG-13 rating for the kiddies. Those who are actually religious find these forays into devilish mayhem blasphemous or exploitational, while an increasing number of staunch non-believers need a bit more than the run-of-the-mill possession flick to be goaded into the thrill of a fantasy they don’t believe in anyway.

Paul Walker's Brother Lands His First Major Acting Role

17 July 2015 11:11 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It appears that the film legacy of the late Paul Walker will keep the engines of its proverbial muscle cars roaring. It is being reported that Cody Walker, the brother of the late Fast & Furious franchise star, will be stepping into the cinematic spotlight for the very first time in an upcoming World War II naval drama starring notable names like Nicolas Cage, Tom Sizemore and Thomas Jane. According to a scoop by Deadline, Cody, the 26-year-old youngest of the Walker siblings consisting of three brothers and two sisters, will make the career transition from being a certified paramedic to stepping in front of the camera for the historical war drama, USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage. The role will be the first credited acting appearance for Cody, who, along with brother Caleb, aided the completion of the recent mega-hit sequel, Furious 7 by serving as stand-ins for their late brother, »

Viral Video Prequel To 'Ant-Man' Sees An Old McU Character Return, Peyton Reed Hints At Sequel Plot

17 July 2015 9:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After one of the more troubled and extended processes of any superhero movie not involving Nicolas Cage as Superman, “Ant-Man” hits theaters today. That means, as it probably should, that the Disney publicity machine is moving at highest gear, and it’s near impossible to escape the swathe of clips, interviews, and promos out there (though how much of an effect it’s having remains to be seen: the Thursday late-night screenings are strong, $6 million or so, but suggest that we’re heading for the lowest-grossing Marvel movie in four years unless things pick up).  In one of the cannier bits of marketing that Marvel have come up with this time around, they’ve unveiled a viral clip that sees Leslie Bibb reprise her role from "Iron Man," the very beginning of the McU, as reporter Christine Everhart live-interviewing Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) from prison, filling in some of his »

The 20 Best Female-Driven Comedies

16 July 2015 3:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Trainwreck," the new Amy Schumer/Judd Apatow movie, examines the plight of one snarly woman as she exits her familiar world of sexual freedom and hangovers for a detour into serious romance. Though several eye-popping cameos and supporting performances buttress the film, Schumer's performance is the acting triumph of "Trainwreck." Without her shaky conscience and burgeoning sense of fulfillment, the movie's conventional story might feel staid. Thankfully, it's anything but. Schumer's performance marks a welcome addition to cinema's long line of strident, hilarious female protagonists. We're celebrating that lineage with a list: the 20 best female-driven comedies ever. Some are old and some are new, but all are marked by a degree of cosmopolitan fun and nerviness -- and the occasional slap from Cher.  20. "How to Marry a Millionaire" We remember Lauren Bacall as a glamor girl with a damning grimace, but let's start revising that narrative to include her chops as a comic force. »

Paul Walker's Brother Cody Lands First Major Role, Fans Unsure How to Feel

16 July 2015 3:25 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When Paul Walker died in 2013, his brother Cody Walker, now 27, helped Universal Pictures finish "Furious 7" as a stand-in for his older brother. (Their brother Caleb did the same.) Now, Deadline reports, Cody has landed the first major acting role of his own: as a Navy soldier in "USS Indianapolis," directed by Mario Van Peebles and starring Nicolas Cage as Captain Charles McVay in an adaptation of the true 1945 story of the men who were stranded and attacked by sharks for five days in the Philippine Sea.

So far the reaction to Cody's casting has been mixed. Some fans are thrilled for him and sure Paul would be proud and happy to see his brother launching his own acting career. Other fans -- including almost everyone in the comments section under Deadline's exclusive -- are crying nepotism, wondering what Cody did to earn a major film role besides look like »

Paul Walker's youngest brother Cody is boarding his first significant feature film role after lending a hand on Fast & Furious 7.

The 27-year-old helped Universal Pictures out in the recent Furious instalment, after the death of Paul in December 2013.

According to Deadline, Cody is starting his own acting career with a major supporting role in USS Indianapolis, alongside Nicolas Cage.

Cage plays Captain Charles McVay in the Mario Van Peebles-directed feature, who was commander of a boat that sank in 1945, resulting in massive loss of life.

Based on a true story, McVay's boat was hit by a torpedo that was on a secret mission, leaving 1,196 men waiting for rescue for four days. Only 317 survived after sharks began eating those who managed to get off-board.

Cody is set to play one of the soldiers fighting for survival.
