But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk.

"Ocean's Eight" Awaits

Chris here. While the world is continually bad, one of our sustaining mantras has been the promise of female ensemble heisting with Ocean's 8. The main refrain of this meditation / mindfulness exercise is obviously its stars - say their names with me and feel renewed: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, and Awkwafina.

Well done.

We've got a new poster and a photo of the assembled crew to distract ourselves, but even this is just a hint of the fun to come (you can expect a trailer to come very soon, impatient readers). Bullock will be playing Danny Ocean's equally conning sister Debbie, so the opportunity remains for some fun crossover with Steven Soderbergh's trilogy. The film's big heist will take place during the Met Gala and juicy cameos should be expected. Ocean's 12 already made a "Julia Roberts pretending to be Julia Roberts" gag,

Ocean's Eight Poster Lines Up an Epic Cast of Thieves

Ocean's Eight Poster Lines Up an Epic Cast of Thieves
The first poster for Ocean's Eight is here. It's hard to think of a better heist movie than Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven, which spawned two sequels and made a boatload of money at the box office. Warner Bros. is looking to keep the franchise going with the female-driven Ocean's Eight. Now, the studio has unveiled the first poster for the movie, which leans into the stacked, all-female cast, led by Sandra Bullock.

While we haven't seen any footage from Ocean's Eight just yet, this poster offers a rather reassuring first look. The poster is very sleek and features a whole lot of red. Sprinkled in with that red is the eight, core female stars of the movie, who are led by Sandra Bullock, who serves as the connective tissue to the other Ocean's movies, as the sister of Danny Ocean (George Clooney). In a recent interview with EW, Bullock

'Ocean's 8': Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and Rihanna Suit Up in Film's Cool First Poster
The Ocean's 8crew has officially assembled, and damn, they look good. 

Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina could not look cooler in the movie's first poster, released on Thursday. 

Blanchett goes a little rock and roll in a leopard print coat and sassy bangs, while Hathaway appears to be channeling Ocean's trilogy star George Clooney's wife, Amal -- though it's Bullock who plays Debbie Ocean, Clooney's onscreen sister. Rihanna dazzles in dreads and an oversized jacket, Kaling covers up in a black coat, Bonham Carter shows off two-toned hair and Paulson buttons up in a quilted jacket. One thing the women all have in common, however, is a stunning pair of shades. 

The first photo from the film, which centers on Bullock's crew attempting to pull off a heist at the Met Gala, was released nearly a year ago. Ocean's 8 is set to

Thor: Ragnarok has surpassed Wonder Woman at the global box office

Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok has now moved past DC’s Wonder Woman at the global box office.

Much is said about the Marvel/DC rivalry, and while none of it really matters, it is certainly interesting to see how various superhero movies perform at the box office compared to one another.

Thor: Ragnarok has been doing particularly well in markets across the world, having pulled in $301 million in the Us and an impressive $833 million worldwide. Comparing this to past Thor films, Ragnarok looks even better, beating out Thor ($449 million) and Thor: The Dark World ($644 million) with considerable ease.

But it’s not just previous Thor movies that Ragnarok is besting, with the movie now surpassing the very popular Wonder Woman at the box office as well (via Box Office Mojo). The $833 million of Thor: Ragnarok has just edged it past Wonder Woman’s $821 million.

David Harbour Says ‘Hellboy’ Is a ‘Monster Movie That’s Dark and Scary’

David Harbour Says ‘Hellboy’ Is a ‘Monster Movie That’s Dark and Scary’
David Harbour is gearing up to play a different type of Hellboy.

The actor discussed, at the Variety Studio at the Dubai International Film Festival, the challenges that come with assuming the signature superhero.

“It’s the most physical role I’ve ever played,” Harbour said. “The stunts are incredible, and the action is really incredible, and I’m way too old to be doing that stuff.”

Another trial is undergoing the aesthetic transformation involved with Hellboy’s extensive, makeup-heavy look. “It’s two to two-and-a-half hours in a chair every morning being painted red with all these prosthetics,” he said.

Harbour, who said he read “Hellboy” creator Mike Mignola’s graphic novels when he was in his 20s, likened superhero movies to the mythos of ancient Greece. While they had Agamemnon, Achilles, and Cressida, modern America has Captain America, Iron Man, and Superman.

“They are mythos, so I wanted to be involved in that conversation,” he said

Dubai: Arab World Women Directors: Rana Eid, ‘Panoptic’

Dubai: Arab World Women Directors: Rana Eid, ‘Panoptic’
Panoptic,” the ambitious documentary debut of Lebanese sound designer Rana Eid, arrives at its Dubai competition berth after a world premiere at the 2017 Locarno Film Festival and a First Lights kudo from the Jihlava Film Festival in the Czech Republic. A new take on the genre of city symphony/documentary essay, Eid’s film offers a complex and poetic inquiry into Beirut’s underground and the roots of conflict in her country.

Eid started writing with the locations and general concept in mind, but the structure of the film suggested itself during editing. She says, “It is at that stage that I realized that an essay documentary will resemble more the mood I wanted to have, this trip into the core of Beirut and my own memories.”

After working as a sound editor and sound designer for compatriot filmmakers including Ghassan Salhab, Vatche Boulghourjian, Khalil Joreige, Joana Hadjithomas and Philippe Aractangi, Eid at first

Sarah Paulson Says People Find Her Relationship With Holland Taylor 'Fascinating and Odd'

Sarah Paulson Says People Find Her Relationship With Holland Taylor 'Fascinating and Odd'
Sarah Paulson admits that her life is rather "unconventional," but that's not because she's dating Holland Taylor.

The 42-year-old actress is featured in Net-a-Porter’s digital magazine, The Edit, and talks about her longtime romance with the 74-year-old actress and their 32-year age difference.

"My life choices are, um, unconventional," she confides. "I’m with a much older person and people find that totally fascinating and odd, and, to me, it’s the least interesting thing about me."

Paulson adds, "But I do feel a bit unconventional."

The Emmy winner shares that when she first started dating Taylor, she was told that it could have a negative impact on her acting career. "Early on, when people found out I was with Holland, some said: 'I think you have to be careful, I’m afraid it’s going to affect your career negatively,'" she recalls. "I was like, 'What?' It never occurred to me at all."
