The Top Gun and Batman Forever star spent the weekend flooding his Twitter account with effusive posts lauding Blanchett, with whom he appeared in the 2003 Western The Missing and whom he again costars with in the new film Song to Song.
His posts included an admission that he once flew to Australia “just to talk” to the actress, only to be supposedly met at the airport by her husband, Australian playwright Andrew Upton. He »

The 57-year-old actor expressed his admiration for Blanchett on Friday in a series of tweets, and said he once flew to Australia just to talk to her -- but was instead met by her husband, Andrew Upton. He then shared that he had two dreams with Blanchett in them, and noted that they were without her husband.
"And recently I've had 2 dreams with #CateBlanchett in them. Her husband wasn't in either of them," he wrote in a now deleted tweet.
On Saturday, he continued his praise for the Oscar-winning 47-year-old actress.
"She's just as amazing in person," he wrote. "Some superstars aren't -- some superstars don't do a thing to ya in person -- Cate is so real it's almost unreal. Once I did a cameo just to hang w/ #cateblanchett who picked up a shovel »
A lot of great TV horror movies rely on a final image, a real shocker, to hammer home the fear. But not all of them. When Michael Calls (1972) is a telefilm that measures out its chills, leading to a logical conclusion (for a small screen sinner) instead of an iconic screen shot for nostalgic viewers. Regardless, this one provides a platform for a solid thriller with a pedigree behind and in front of the camera.
Originally broadcast on Saturday, February 5th, as the ABC Movie of the Weekend, When Michael Calls had the normal competition from CBS’ New Dick Van Dyke Show/Mary Tyler Moore Show and NBC’s Saturday Night at the Movies. But ABC’s Movies of the Week (on Tuesday’s, and here) almost always won out with viewers, providing exciting, original fare. This one is no exception.

The film, which screened at the Telluride and Toronto festivals last year, also stars Jason O’Mara and Beverly D’Angelo. Producers are Julie Lynn, Bonnie Curtis, Wendy Federman, Carl Moellenberg and Elliott Webb.
“Wakefield” is directed by Robin Swicord from her adaptation of E.L. Doctorow’s short story, in which a successful suburbanite commuter vanishes without a trace and hides in the attic of his carriage house garage, surviving by scavenging at night. He secretly observes the lives of his wife (portrayed by Garner), children, and neighbors and slowly realizes that he has not in fact left his family — he has left himself.

Actor Michael Pena has confirmed that he will be returning to the McU for Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Stealing plenty a scene during the first Ant-Man film back in 2015, actor Michael Pena, after a bit of confusion, has confirmed he will indeed be returning to the role of Luis for the sequel.
Pena initially seemed unsure about whether he would be taking up the role again during a recent interview with Collider, saying, “No, No. I haven’t gotten the phone call yet. I don’t know if I’m gonna get the phone call. Who knows?”
However, he has now clarified that he will be back in the mix during a red carpet Lrm interview for his latest movie Chips: “So, I’m doing Extinction next, that’s a Universal movie. And then I’m doing Ant-Man Part 2”.

Earlier this week, it was reported that CHIPs star Michael Peña had been left in the dark about Ant-Man and the Wasp, thereby casting doubt on whether his fast-talking Luis will have a role to play in Marvel’s 2018 sequel.
Considering that Pena’s cunning crook was arguably one of, if not the best supporting character in Peyton Reed’s hit original, Marvel fans were aghast. But thankfully, Peña has now walked back his comments regarding Ant-Man 2 to confirm that Luis will return after all. Whether the actor’s original statement was simply a faux pas or a breakdown in communication is anyone’s guess, but while chatting to Lrm (via Screen Rant) about his upcoming role in the R-rated CHIPs reboot, Michael Peña put any and all rumors to bed.
Next on Peña’s plate is the alien invasion movie Extinction, which is coming by way of Universal »

The Internet sometimes can spread rumors like wildfire.
He told Collider, “No, No. I haven’t gotten the phone call yet. I don’t know if I’m gonna get the phone call. Who knows?”
Now, it’s unclear when the interview took place, but a lot of things can happen since that interview. In the meantime, several online news outlets are reporting that there's a chance he may not be in the movie due to no phone call.

Michael Pena was easily one of the best parts of Ant-Man, but he may not even appear in its sequel. Pena revealed that he hasn’t received a call yet to return in Ant-Man and the Wasp, the sequel to the 2014 movie starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas. The movie is set to […]

Ant-Man featured a fun group of supporting characters, but aside from lead stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly, we don’t currently know who will be returning for the upcoming sequel, Ant-Man And The Wasp. The movie is expected to revolve around the hunt for original Wasp, Janet Van Dyne, in the Quantum Realm though, which obviously sheds some doubt on whether or not Scott Lang will need to team-up with the band of crooks from the first instalment.
Something which seems to emphasize the fact that the group won’t return alongside their leader is that Michael Pena has yet to hear anything from Marvel Studios about a potential return. It’s still very early days, of course, but Ant-Man And The Wasp already has a working title, so it can’t be too far off from shooting. Either way, here’s what he had to share:

Outside of having both Ant-Man and the Wasp in a sequel that is appropriately titled Ant-Man and the Wasp, there is probably one and only one character from the first Ant-Man movie that fans really want to see. Michael Pena as Luis was easily one of the best parts of that first movie. Up till now, it looked like a sure thing that he'd be back in Ant-Man 2, but it looks like that may not be as certain as we thought. Marvel hasn't called Michael Pena about reprising his role yet. And the movie is just a few months away from shooting.
The news comes courtesy of Collider, who recently chatted with Michael Pena about a couple of his upcoming projects, including Chips and The Lego Ninjago Movie. When asked about his potential return in Ant-Man 2, the actor gave a somewhat surprising response. It turns out Marvel hasn't called him about it. »
There’s not many places on Earth more bright, glitzy and glamorous than Las Vegas. With its famous shows, many casinos and constant parties, it’s no surprise that the city in the desert is popular with Hollywood and the film industry. Situated just 263 miles east of Los Angeles and the film community, Vegas has attracted the attention of movie producers for decades.
Founded in 1905, not too long after the birth of the movie industry itself, the City Of Las Vegas first appeared in a motion picture in 1952. The film was The Las Vegas Story, a Howard Hughes production starring Jane Russell and Victor Mature that was a suspenseful thriller involving murder and intrigue. It was quickly followed by the likes of Crashing Las Vegas and Meet Me In Las Vegas a few years later, but it was the arrival of the 1960 Rat Pack film Ocean’s 11 which really united »

With filming on Ant-Man 2 slated to get started this June in Atlanta, the pre-production process has already gotten under way on this Marvel Phase 4 sequel. Today we have word that, during the production, this sequel will be filmed under the secret working title of Cherry Blue, so if you see any signs in Atlanta for a production called Cherry Blue this summer, that likely means you're somewhere in the vicinity of the Ant-Man 2 set. Now that pre-production has gotten started, perhaps we'll get the first casting updates soon.
McU Exchange discovered the working title posted on a preview for the next issue of Production Weekly. The full issue of Production Weekly will be available on Thursday, and there is speculation it may include the first official synopsis, so hopefully we'll have story updates on this highly-anticipated sequel by week's end. Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly have long been »

A production start date for Marvel's tiniest sequel has been set for July...
Right now in the land of Marvel movies, the firm’s next three projects are already well into post-production, with the main shoots for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok all completed.
2017 will see a trio of further movies go into production, with Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War already in front of the cameras, and now we also have a start date for the third film, Ant-Man And The Wasp.
My Entertainment World have updated their information to state that Marvel's smallest (and biggest) McU superhero will be back in front of cameras on July 6th, and there are no surprises when it comes to the shoot »
Ant-Man and The Wasp is expected to start shooting this June and as Marvel Studios gears up for production, a working title for Peyton Reed’s highly anticipated sequel has been revealed today. What does it mean? Well, we’re not sure, but “Cherry Blue” is what it will be known as for the time being.
Titles like these sometimes either tie into the plot or simply reference something the director’s a fan of. So far, we’ve really got no idea as to what this one is hinting at and unless anything else comes to light, we’ll just have to wait and see whether or not “Cherry Blue” ends up having any sort of relevance to the events of Ant-Man and The Wasp. Our best guess though is that it’s just a random name.
Very little is known about the sequel at the moment beyond the »

Is a CGI Spock on the way? The future of Star Trek is bright, despite the fact that Star Trek Beyond didn't quite live up to expectations at the box office. Paramount is moving ahead with a fourth Star Trek movie that will see Chris Hemsworth return as George Kirk alongside Chris Pine as James Kirk, meaning that the two will be sharing the screen for the first time in this new franchise. CBS is also working on Star Trek: Discovery, a brand new series that will air later this year. Sadly, Leonard Nimoy passed away in 2015, so we won't be able to see him play Spock, but according to his son, it would be a great idea to bring him back as a CGI character.
Zeta-Jones, 47, stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday where the actress revealed that her two kids are already showing interest in joining the entertainment industry.
“You know, I know it’s going to be hard for them because they’ve got their grandfather, Kirk , they’ve got me, they have Michael,” she says. “But they so inherently love it and they’re good!”

Catherine Zeta-Jones won an Oscar in 2003 for her role in Chicago, but the golden statue wasn’t her best accessory of the evening! The 47-year-old knockout visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday night where she reflected on her Oscars experience.
“I think I hold the record of carrying the biggest jugs to the Oscars,” she quipped while looking at photo of her pregnant self from the show. “I was 10 days before I gave birth to our daughter Carys. It was a special night.”
And even though she was heavily pregnant, Zeta-Jones didn’t shy away from a trying challenge at the Academy Awards.
“When I was less pregnant they invited me to sing live with Queen Latifah, one of the original songs, which I thought was a wonderful idea and a real honor, until 10 days before I was just about to give birth, I'm on a hydraulic »
George Clooney has been an outspoken critic of Donald Trump, and while receiving a Honorary César at the Feb. 24 César Awards he delivered a loud and clear (and often hilarious) takedown of American politics. Aided by the witty “translations” of his friend Jean Dujardin, Clooney was able to satirize in a way that definitely spoke to the room.
One pointed example: Clooney said, “Over the course of my career, I’ve had the great fortune of working with some incredible filmmakers who have protected me and inspired me and taught me what an honor it is to work in film.” Meanwhile, Dujardin’s translation was, “Donald Trump is a danger for the world, and I will do everything to oppose the fear and hate that has settled in.”
Clooney was being honored for his “dazzling talent as an actor, »
