Even though we're getting both Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel in the very near future, these are just two out of the more than 40 superhero films planned throughout the rest of this decade that primarily center on female characters. Hollywood has been slow to bring a superhero movie to the big screen that has a strong woman at the center of its story, and while a lot of people have been quite vocally against this fact, it is particularly bothersome to Marvel's The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon.
His two Marvel movies have arguably the best female superhero currently seen on the big screen in Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow. This next time out, we'll also be getting Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch. But this is in a movie that is dominated by the likes of Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, Quicksilver and Vision, all »
When Johnny Depp‘s mustache comedy “Mortdecai” brought in less than $5 million on opening weekend, it marked the A-list actor’s fifth straight box office bomb. But he’s far from the only top billed actor to endure a tanker or two.

Newsflash: We still have awhile before the Oscars. It's like a month away. But we can prepare anyway by revisiting the greatest hits of our leading nominees in the acting categories. Put on your angriest Annette Bening face and join us for this trip into prestige pictures currently streaming on Netflix. "The Kids are All Right" (Julianne Moore) Julianne Moore didn't pick up a nomination, but costars Annette Bening and Mark Ruffalo did in this family drama (with funny moments) about a lesbian couple attempting to embrace the new-found presence of their kids' sperm donor. "The Kids are All Right" feels like a lost James L. Brooks gem set in 2010, and every performance has endearing and (intentionally) maddening moments. Julianne might play the most conflicted character at all, and she wears that indecision and personal guilt well. "My Week With Marilyn" (Eddie Redmayne) Is this a great movie? No. In fact, »

It was the tale of two stars at the weekend box office, one who opened a film — Jennifer Lopez with Universal’s The Boy Next Door at $15M — and one who tanked — Johnny Depp with Lionsgate’s Mortdecai at $4.1M. The discrepancy between the two films showed one star, Lopez, who kept it cheap and met her audience’s wants head-on, and another, Depp, who at a high price lost himself in a zany caricature disconnected from reality.
Universal’s Blumhouse production Boy Next Door kept it lean and mean with a production budget of $4M, while Lionsgate/OddLot spent $60M on Mortdecai, a figure many still consider exorbitant for an avant garde Depp film in the wake of his spring sci-fi bomb Transcendence which cost $100M.
One studio executive summed it up perfectly today, saying, “Depp should take a page from Jennifer Lopez’s book and do a low-budget »

Announced last week to be playing the 1980s iteration of Halle Berry's Storm in X-Men: Apocalypse, Alexandra Shipp took to Instagram last night to reveal how she's currently preparing for the role. "You might be wondering what someone would do when they're sick on a Saturday night...", she says in the video before falling into a pile of comics and yelling, "homework!" In addition to some old X-Men comics, there are some issues of the recent "Storm" solo series by writer Greg Pak in Shipp's collection. Thanks to a heads up via Vixen Varsity, check out the quick vid below, along with cool fan art (by BossLogic) featuring Alexandra Ship as Storm further down. What do you think?

Shipp is filling Halle Berry's shoes as a young Storm. You might recognize Shipp from her recent portrayal of Aaliyah in the Lifetime biopic Aaliyah: Princess of R&B.
Sheridan will star »
Sansa Stark just made her most powerful move yet."Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner was just cast as a young Jean Grey in the upcoming film "X-Men: Apocalypse," taking over the role from Famke Janssen.The flick, like "X-Men: First Class" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past," will take place before the events of Bryan Singer's 2000 film "X-Men," meaning younger stars were needed to fill some of the original trilogy stars' shoes.Turner follows in the footsteps of actors like Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy ... who played younger versions of Mystique, Magneto and Professor Xavier in the last two films.But she's not the only superhero getting recast.Both Storm and Cyclops -- who were originally played by Halle Berry and James Marsden -- will appear in the new film as well.

The day Hollywood gets bored with sex will be the day the last studio closes its doors for the last time: even when audiences are no longer quite as excited by the novelty of watching famous people take their clothes off (a curiously enduring mark of the intrepid human condition that), film-makers use sex as a narrative device, a weapon, a provocation and in some cases for a laugh.
With Lars Von Trier “pushing boundaries” in his usual way and making sex seem like a terrible idea, 2014 had a pretty high bar in the raunch stakes and it’s no longer a case of sex scenes becoming memorable because of who is in them. Gone are the days when anyone would pay Demi Moore or Halle Berry astronomical fees to do nude scenes in basically unwatchable movies; sex scenes now have to make a bigger statement. They have »

Storm. Cyclops. Jean Grey. All three are memorable mutants who have made their own legacies on the paneled pages of Marvel’s comic books. Fans of the X-Men films have come to know these three heroes through the performances of Halle Berry, James Marsden, and Famke Janssen, respectively. With the earlier timeline of the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, however, viewers will get acquainted with younger versions of this talented super-powered trio, and tonight director Bryan Singer revealed the actors who will play Storm, Cyclops, and Jean Grey in the sequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Via Twitter, Singer recently announced that Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan, and Sophie Turner will co-star in X-Men: Apocalypse. Shipp (Drumline: A New Beat, Straight Outta Compton) will play Storm, Sheridan (Joe, Scouts vs. Zombies) will portray Cyclops, and Turner (Game of Thrones, Mary Shelley’s Monster) will play Jean Grey. Here’s the official tweeet »

The trio will star as younger versions of Jean Grey, Storm and Cyclops respectively.
Turner is best known for her role as Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones. Shipp recently played Aaliyah in Lifetime biopic Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B, while Sheridan is best known for movies The Tree of Life and Mud.
Apocalypse - a mutant who is both ancient and immortal - will be played by Oscar Isaac.
Calling Professor X: I need a mind wipe, stat. It’s going to be difficult to get over the mental images I have of Jean Grey, Cyclops and Storm in movie form. They’ve only really been Famke Janssen, James Marsden and Halle Berry. They have all been portrayed in younger form, too — Jean Grey by Haley Ramm in X-Men: The Last Stand, Cyclops/Scott Summers by Tim Pocock in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Storm/Ororo Munroe in a deleted scene from the latter — but most fans hate those movies so even if those actors weren’t merely flashback and bit roles, they wouldn’t be employed for featured use of these three characters in their early years. So, instead, we’ve got some more notable young stars cast as the X-trio for the next installment, X-Men: Apocalypse. Game of Thrones redhead Sophie Turner is Jean, Mud and Joe and The Tree of Life’s Tye Sheridan is »

Much as he did with X-Men: Days Of Future Past, Bryan Singer is letting his own voice – or rather, his fingers, given the medium – do the announcing on follow-up X-Men: Apocalypse. He’s taken to twitter to reveal that Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan and Alexandra Shipp have all been cast in the new mutant adventure.Mere hours after hearing from the film’s villain, Oscar Isaac about how Singer and his team will bring the character of Apocalypse to life, we now know who will be playing younger versions of three classic mutants in the 1980s-set movie.Keeping up his current track record of hiring from the cast of Game Of Thrones after Peter Dinklage appeared in Days Of Future Past, Turner will be Jean Grey, previously played by Famke Janssen. Mud’s Sheridan is on as the new Scott Summers, Aka Cyclops, taking over the role from James Marsden, »
Move over, Halle Berry. You too, Famke Janssen and James Marsden. There’s a new trio of mutants in town. X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer has just announced that Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones), Tye Sheridan (Tree of Life), and Alexandra Shipp (Drumline: A New Beat) have joined the comic book prequel as the younger versions […]
