Warner Bros.' DC Comics Extended Universe is starting to take shape, with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad currently in post-production, and Wonder Woman recently starting principal photography. One of the studio's 2018 projects, Aquaman, is coming together nicely as well, with Jason Momoa set to star, James Wan attached to direct, and David Leslie Johnson coming aboard to write the screenplay. No official story details have been released yet, but today we have a new rumor from JoBlo, which reveals who the villain may be, while offering new details about Mera's role in the story. There may be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
One of Aquaman's primary villains in the DC Comics is Black Manta, who many assumed would be battling Aquaman in this stand alone movie. This unconfirmed report claims that the villain will actually be Ocean Master, a. »
The gender swap is (finally!) taking over cinema, with roles originally written for males being played by females, and all-male casted films being remade with ensemble casts of women (“Ghostbusters,” “Ocean’s Eleven”). Earlier this year, George Miller brought us back to his dusty, sepia-colored universe in “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and of course, the eponymous Max (the ever prodigious Tom Hardy in the role) was back, but Miller presented us with Furiosa, a stunning, brave, and unquestionably important character in the film.

Following on from producer Charles Roven's comments yesterday about how the James Wan-directed "Aquaman" film is in its very earliest stages with the script still under construction, JoBlo has posted up a rumor regarding said script.
Specifically they're discussing details on the potential villain of the film which, up to this point, has been widely speculated as being Black Manta. The site claims that is wrong and instead it will be Ocean Master - Aquaman's half brother Orm Marius. The site says what goes down between the two "will be reminiscent of the comic struggles of the duo in a brother-vs-brother fight for the throne of Atlantis".
The site also claims that the female lead of the film Mera, who is first expected to be introduced in the first "Justice League" film, is being set up as the "Khaleesi of the sea". It will be a forceful »

Every year film buffs decry the Oscars as a nonsensical popularity contest won more by marketing than good filmmaking, and the very next year those same people tune in again only for the cycle to repeat itself. Yes, not every great movie can get nominated, but the Academy are a notoriously crusty bunch, often sticking to tried and tested “Oscar-bait” formula rather than rewarding movies that transcend this and try something different.
These 13 movies are without question among the best films of the year and sure to be better than a number of movies which in fact end up being nominated, but because of their genre, small scale, difficult subject matter or one of a billion other reasons, they’ll miss out on getting to compete for the little gold guy.
One hoped after 2009’s Dark Knight controversy that a new age would dawn for the Academy, »

John Wick 2 is currently shooting. And today, we have the first photos of Keanu Reeves on set. He returns as the deadly assassin in this highly-anticipated sequel. And from the looks of things, the bad guys still aren't going to catch a break this second time around. These first images come from an eagle-eyed Twitter user, as production is carried out on location in and around New York City.
John Wick arrived in 2014, and wasn't a blockbuster hit. It only earned $43 million off a $20 million budget, with a worldwide take of $86 million. But the film was a massive success with genre fans and critics alike. And it has now spawned a multi-media franchise. As you can see in the photos, Keanu Reeves is back in top physical form as formally-retired professional killer John Wick. Also returning from the first movie this time around are Lance Reddick, Ian McShane and John Leguizamo, »

With his time as one of Earth's Mightiest Heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe possibly winding down, Chris Hemsworth may have found a new franchise to star in. The Tracking Board reports that the actor is circling a new spec script entitled Allan Quatermain, written by up and coming scribe Barnett Brettler. Sony Pictures is eyeing the script, which is being considered to start a new franchise.
No story details have been given thus far, but the Allan Quartermain character has been seen on the big screen several times. The beloved character first appeared in H. Rider Haggard's 1885 novel King Solomon's Mines, which spawned 13 sequels. On the big screen, the character has been played by Richard Chamberlain in the 1985 adaptation of King Solomon's Mines, and its 1986 sequel Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold. Most recently, Sean Connery portrayed the adventurer in 2003's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, »
Here's Murtada deconstructing the trailer for the ridiculously titled The Huntsman Winters War.
- Chastain as a the Warrior. Yes!
- Blunt and Theron as dueling evil sisters. Yes again! May campiness rule the day.
- The oversize gestures of Blunt and Theron as they wreak havoc. Give me more!
- So it’s obviously all about the actresses. Oh and the possibility of a shirtless Chris Hemsworth.
- From the producer of Maleficent and Alice in Wonderland….. Nooooooo.
- Hemsworth gets top billing?? I guess he's The Hunstman.
- The CGI doesn't look very convincing.
- “Men have forgotten what it means to be afraid. We will bring fear”. Hmmm cheesy line. It could be fun if the tone is over the top campy. The trailer is playing it straight so we are dubious. »

Tomorrow marks the wide opening for Carol, the 1950’s-set romantic drama from director Todd Haynes that was nominated for the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The film, which stars Cate Blanchett as a married woman engaging in an affair with a young department store clerk (Rooney Mara), won the Queer Palm award at Cannes and earned Mara the best actress award (which she shared with Mon roi‘s Emmanuelle Bercot).
Blanchett, who has won two Oscars and will be honored with the Desert Palm Achievement Award next January at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, is a strong threat for a best actress nom, as is Mara. However, the track record for lesbian roles resulting in Oscar wins in Academy history is not necessarily strong.
Mara, herself, was nominated for best actress in 2012 for her performance as a brilliant, if dangerous, »

We hadn't really been paying much attention to the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, save for gawking at photos of Chris Hemsworth looking all dirty and hunky. And then the trailer for The Huntsman: Winter's War dropped and now we can't stop talking about it. Why? Because it's full of badass female characters that will almost definitely make us shout out "Yasss, slay us all, ladies!" throughout the entire movie. Sure, we'll get thrown out of the theater but it'll be worth it. Here are all the times Charlize Theron, Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt looked so fierce and strong that it turned us into the human equivalent of the prayer hands emojis: 1. When Freya, the »
"Whoever gets in there will be unstoppable." Universal has debuted the first trailer for The Huntsman: Winter's War, the sequel to 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman that no one asked for but they made anyway. Chris Hemsworth returns as The Huntsman, and Charlize Theron as the evil Queen, but they've also lined up two great actresses to join: Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt. Unfortunately, this looks like a terrible CGI-fest without much substance. In fact, it looks like they're trying to replicate Disney's Frozen in a more gritty, live-action way. And that just irks me and makes me despise this, but give it a look. Here's the first trailer for Cedric Nicolas-Troyan's The Huntsman: Winter's War, from Uni's YouTube: The fantastical world of Snow White and the Huntsman expands to reveal how the fates of The Huntsman Eric and Queen Ravenna are deeply and dangerously intertwined.

Completing the de-facto marketing stint that sees the release of a slew of character posters, a diminutive teaser and, ultimately, a full-length sizzle reel, Universal has lifted the curtain on the riveting and über-stylish first trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War – and it’s a doozy.
Pitched as a prequel, Cedric Nicolas-Troyan’s film has its roots in Rupert Sanders’ relatively successful Snow White and the Huntsman that was released back in 2012 – not to mention the returning Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth – though today’s all-new trailer showcases a very different adventure.
