Glass: Spencer Treat Clark, the former child actor who played Bruce Willis's son in Unbreakable, will reprise his role in M. Night Shyamalan's sequel, Glass. Fortunately, the now nearly 30-year-old actor has kept in the business, most recently appearing as a regular on the series Animal Kingdom. Charlayne Woodard will also be reprising her Unbreakable part as the mother of Elijah "Glass" Price (Samuel L. Jackson). [THR] A Man Called Ove: Another of last year's foreign-language Oscar nominees is being remade. Joining the Jack Nicholson-led Toni Erdmann now is a Tom Hanks-led version of A Man Called Ove, about a grumpy old man and the friendship he forms with some new neighbors. Hanks will also produce the remake of...

You probably want to go see “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” because you enjoyed the 2014 original, but there’s only one reason why you should actually go spend upwards of $12 to watch the sequel, and her name is Julianne Moore. Sure, Matthew Vaughn’s action scenes remain dazzlingly choreographed and new cast members Halle Berry, Pedro Pascal, and Channing Tatum are welcome additions, but Moore owns the entire movie as a scene-chewing sociopath. Sorry, Colin Firth.
The Oscar winner embraces her dark side as Poppy Adams, a global entrepreneur who wants to legalize the drug trade so that her multimillion dollar empire can operate freely in the United States. Poppy has a fetish for 1950s Americana kitsch, and Moore basically plays her as if her housewife from “Far From Heaven” were a diabolical and demonic James Bond villain — think Martha Stewart with horns. Poppy is sweet, squeaky-clean, and maternal, but she »

THR is reporting that Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard have signed on to reprise their Unbreakable roles in Glass, M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming sequel to the 2000 superhero thriller and last year’s Split.
Clark plays Joseph Dunn, the son of Bruce Willis’ David Dunn, while Woodard portrays Mrs. Price, the mother of Samuel L. Jackson’s Elijah Price, a.k.a. Mr. Glass. Split stars James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy are also reprising their roles as Kevin Wendell Crumb/The Beast and Casey Cooke respectively, and Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story) is set for an as-yet-unrevealed role.
Glass is set for release on January 19th 2019, and finds Willis’ Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men. »

Thanks to giant franchises – like Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, specifically – we’ve now become accustomed to the ‘Lack Of Female Directors Explanation’ that’s so often trotted out by senior production executives: ‘Hiring a woman director is a priority for us, but we have to find one who wants to do it, and has experience before we hand them a giant movie.’ This is a frustrating response to calls for more women at the helm, not least because the same criteria doesn’t always apply to male directors hired by these studios. Now, though, it seems that Captain Marvel star Brie Larson could be the perfect answer to that standard delaying tactic.
The Academy Award winning actress has just made her feature length directorial debut with Unicorn Store. The independent comedy – written by Samantha McIntyre – has been highly praised by audiences and critics alike, following its screenings »

From approximately minute three, Kingsman: The Golden Circle bolts out of the gate, relentlessly so. Things pick right up on Eggsy (an ever-boring Taron Egerton) as he emerges from the namesake tailor shop in his Sunday best, only to be confronted by ex-Kingsman hopeful Charlie (Edward Holcroft). Before even having a beat to remember who the hell Charlie is, he’s thrust upon viewers — sporting a cartoonish robotic arm — in a taxi chase scene that’s shot so abrasively it reminds you immediately of the proper action directing this franchise lacks. This sequence, among others that follow, is driven by the sheer teenage, video game junkie sensibility that seems inherent in the worse half of Matthew Vaughn’s filmography. At the very least, by throwing it at you from Jump Street, Vaughn has the decency to prepare you for the loud and plastic bullshit he and co-scribe Jane Goldman will »

“Glass” is a follow-up to Shyamalan’s films “Split” and “Unbreakable,” in which Bruce Willis starred as David Dunn, a security guard who discovers he has superhuman powers that allow him to see the crimes people have committed by touching them.
In “Glass,” Dunn pursues Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Elijah Price, aka Mr. Glass (Jackson), emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
Clark is back as Willis’ son, while Woodard is returning to play Jackson’s mother.

We have known for quite some time that M. Night Shyamalan's Split 2, which is currently going under the title Glass, will bring back Unbreakable stars Bruce Willis as David Dunn and Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price. Today we have word that two more Unbreakable stars will return. Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard will reprise their roles as David Dunn's son Joseph and Elijah's mother, who will both join Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Split stars James McAvoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, and Sarah Paulson in an unspecified role. This may be the first of many casting announcements, since production is expected to begin quite soon.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news today, although it isn't clear if any other characters from Unbreakable are being brought back as well. The original movie also starred Robin Wright as Audrey Dunn, David's estranged wife and Joseph's mother, »

Jackson are back, but two more Unbreakable stars have just signed on to reprise their roles from the 2000 film. Spencer Treat Clark […] »

Even though it won’t be released until April 2018, talk regarding the next Avengers movie is as prevalent as ever. Every man and his dog wants to know just what to expect from what will likely be one of the biggest blockbusters ever made, and this is just what Doctor Strange himself, Benedict Cumberbatch, says to expect.
Speaking to Digital Spy, the English actor said: “It’s ten years coming. It’s just a huge, huge, huge amount of work, huge amount of storylines and it’s all sort of pointing to this confrontation….It’s amazing to be part of it even though I’m late to the party, it’s very cool to be part of it.”
So, not much there from Cumberbatch in terms of details or juicy plot spoilers but it’s good »

Leave it to M. Night Shyamalan to build an expanded universe out of a twist ending. He kept fans in the dark that Split was a backdoor sequel to his 2000 film Unbreakable, and now he’ll be tying the two films together with Glass, a title that references Samuel L. Jackson’s character, Elijah Price, aka “Mr. Glass”. Now it looks like a couple more Unbreakable actors will be signing onto the upcoming sequel. THR reports that Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard are both set to reprise their roles from Unbreakable. Clark played Joseph Dunn, the son of … »

Over the past few days we’ve heard confirmation that Chris Evans (Captain America), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel) and Don Cheadle (War Machine) are all set to feature in the currently-in-production Avengers 4, and now Sebastian Stan has revealed that he’ll also be back as The Winter Soldier in the currently untitled sequel.
“I still haven’t read a script for this next one,” Stan told CinemaBlend. “For this fourth one. All I know is I’m going down there in October, and that’s all I know. I still actually haven’t read a script for the last one. All I knew was what I was involved in, and I was kept on a very ‘need to know’ basis. Maybe that’s the norm. But it’s a family system. There’s a trust, and there’s a sense of knowledge between the writers and the directors, with Kevin Feige, »

Last year, Avengers: Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo revealed that this movie marked a new beginning for the McU, hinting that it, and the untitled Avengers 4, will bring the culmination of everything that has happened in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date. While no specifics were given about the story, this notion was mirrored by star Benedict Cumberbatch, who teased how massive this adventure is during a recent interview. Here's what he had to say about how all-encompassing this sequel actually is.
"It's ten years coming. It's just a huge, huge, huge amount of work, huge amount of storylines and it's all sort of pointing to this confrontation. It's amazing to part of it even though I'm late to the party, it's very cool one to be part of it."
The actor made these comments during a new interview with Digital Spy, where he was promoting his new film The Child in Time. »

Avengers: Infinity War is still a good few months away from release, but Avengers 4 is already underway with several actors already confirming that they have been on set. One such actress is Gwyneth Paltrow — who plays Tony’s eternal flame Pepper Potts — and the actress recently let slip the return of another major character for the fourth Avengers film. Chatting with THR, Paltrow spilled the beans:
“I went to Atlanta to do Avengers 4, so I’m in and out for that, and it’s weird to go back and forth. We’re growing fast, and balls are dropping all the time. But honestly, I was on set and thought, “You sit here for two hours sipping tea, Robert Downey Jr. and Don Cheadle are making me laugh hysterically — why the hell did I give this up?”

What most people have been talking about in the run-up to the release of Kingsman: The Golden Circle is the mystifying reappearance of Colin Firth’s superspy Harry Hart. In 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, Agent Galahad was undeniably shot in the head by Samuel L. Jackson’s villain – and yet the promotion for the sequel has been very open about the fact that Harry would be back in action this time around.
But was his return always on the cards? Was his apparently fake death in the first movie deliberately engineered with a hidden way for him to come back in a sequel? Well, no, it wasn’t. In an interview with ComicBook.com, Firth revealed that director/co-writer Matthew Vaughn did not originally envision the actor being part of the second outing. When asked if it was planned, he replied:
“It wasn’t but it was quite early. »

Some newly leaked photographs from the set of Avengers 4 show that Brie Larson will be bringing Captain Marvel to the upcoming second installment of Infinity War as well as showing off that Captain America will apparently make it through the first round of battles with Thanos. We do know that Avengers: Infinity War will have some deaths of some pretty big Marvel characters that will also coincidentally fall in line with when some of those actors portraying those characters will come to the end of their contracts, but nothing has been officially confirmed as of yet. We may get a hint when the new trailer drops, which could possibly be next week.
The new photos from the set of Avengers 4 come to us via Just Jared and they feature Brie Larson and Chris Evans arriving in Atlanta for filming of the movie. The next two installments of the Avengers franchise »
Is there a bigger, more impressive blockbuster currently in the works than Avengers: Infinity War?
Sure, you have Warner’s imminent Justice League and the mooted Godzilla Vs. Kong, but in the realm of Hollywood’s shared universes, Infinity War stands head and burly shoulders above the rest because it’s about to execute on a vision that began almost ten years ago with the release of Jon Favreau’s Iron Man. Toss in a post-credits scene with Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, now an McU mainstay, and the rest is history.
Indeed, when counting the yet-to-be-released Thor: Ragnarok and Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War will be the 19th instalment in Marvel’s grand universe, with everyone involved deeming Iw to be a superhero movie unlike any other. And even from the outside looking in, few would contest such a tantalizing claim.

Most nominees at awards shows have their game faces carefully planned; otherwise, they run the risk of being the person who’s caught swearing when they lose, immortalized forever for being a poor sport (like Samuel L. Jackson, who was caught on camera saying “shit” when Martin Landau won Best Supporting Actor at the…

Commercials are the point of commercial TV. I realize that, for those of you who do only streaming services, this concept may seem a bit foreign, but your monthly fees take the place of paid commercials, assuming the streaming service isn’t double-dipping.
Advertisers buy time to pitch products and/or services and/or whatever and the amount that the channel can charge is based on how many people are watching and which demographic groups those people represent. That’s why an ad during the Superbowl costs so much.
You probably knew all that.
I tend to mentally surf commercials; they’re on but I’m tuned out. Some I wake up for because either there’s some element I like or it really annoys me and I want to throw something at the TV. An example of the former is a commercial with Mark Wahlberg as the spokesman at »
