Joss Whedon Speaks Against Lack of Female Superhero Movies

28 January 2015 11:34 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »

41 A-List Actors Who Bombed as Hard as Johnny Depp in ‘Mortdecai’

28 January 2015 7:04 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

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.

The 51-year-old film star and his co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor and Olivia Munn are in fact in very good company.

StreamFix: 6 Oscar Frontrunners in Great Roles on Netflix

26 January 2015 5:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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, »

Why Jennifer Lopez’s ‘Door’ Opened, And Depp’s ‘Mortdecai’ Didn’t: B.O. Breakdown

25 January 2015 2:26 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

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 »

14 Most Memorable Sex Scenes Of 2014

23 January 2015 6:07 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Artificial Eye

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 »

X-Men‘s New Jean Grey, Cyclops and Storm: Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan and Alexandra Shipp

22 January 2015 7:31 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

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.

Filmmaker Bryan Singer has used Twitter to break the news about the casting of three younger versions of existing "X-Men" characters in the upcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse".
