Sex happens in the shower, love happens in the bath. Among its other virtues, Gillian Robespierre’s “Landline” is the rare movie that appreciates the difference between the pleasure of standing in the water and the satisfaction of soaking in it — the difference between trying someone on for size and swishing around in their dirt until your skin prunes and the water runs cold. Almost everything that a second feature should be, the film is bigger, richer, shaggier, and more satisfying than Robespierre’s “Obvious Child,” though obviously a product of the same irreverent imagination. It’s that most elusive of indie dramedies: An honestly told story about the messiness of human relationships.
Set in the fall of 1995, a magical time when people kept all of their secrets on floppy discs and Donald Trump was still just a punchline, “Landline” unfolds like a less caustic version of “The Squid and the Whale, »

I know we (specifically I) have been focused a lot lately on Avengers: Infinity War, we have had quite a few role confirmations, and any small item we can find must be shared with you guys. This is the movie that I am hoping will correct the last Avengers attempt with Ultron, and usher in a new phase of perhaps lesser known characters. However, one well known actor, Josh Brolin (who on a side note is the son of James Brolin, the star of the original Westworld movie in 1973 -- sorry couldn't resist), went to Instagram today to show us a split image of his character and his... human face. Check it out!
So, clearly Brolin is excited to finally get out of his chair and do some major damage to Earth. I speculated yesterday that depending on what happens in Guardians Of The Galaxy vol. 2, he may commandeer »

Though we've already been introduced to the ultra-powerful Thanos in Guardians of The Galaxy and then again very briefly in a post-credits scene, fans have been waiting anxiously to see the Mad Titan in action, and that's going to happen in next year's Avengers: Infinity War. We've had a few cool little production teases for the movie previously, but now actor Josh Brolin has shared a new look at Thanos' face (well, half of it) alongside his own in a side-by-side image. The caption reads only one word: "Next."

Josh Brolin looks nearly unrecognizable in his upcoming film role.
The 48-year-old actor shared a before-and-after post on Instagram, revealing that he gained 73 pounds. The first photo showed Brolin at 167 pounds, while the second image was of him at 240 pounds.
Watch: Chris Pratt Says He Became 'Impotent' and 'Depressed' From Weight Gain
Prior to the post, he put up a pic from 2007, where he looked noticeably thinner. "One hundred and sixty-seven pounds, 2007 #afilmbyoliverstone," Brolin captioned the photo. The actor worked with Oliver Stone on W. (2008) and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010).
While on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in January 2015, Brolin revealed that he had gained over 40 pounds for his role in Danny McBride and Jody Hill's comedy, Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter. He even unbuttoned his shirt to show off his belly. "I have to get rid of this weight," he insisted.

Josh Brolin is part of the actors-who-gain-weight-for-roles club.
The 48-year-old, who married model Kathryn Boyd in September, posted a shocking before and after photo to Instagram on Monday.
Instead of a weight-loss transformation like those that usually flood the social media site, Brolin demonstrated a weight gain — specifically, a 73 lb. weight gain! At least 40 lbs. of that were for his role in Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter, Brolin said on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in January.

It was widely reported last week that Peter Dinklage is in early talks for a role in Avengers: Infinity War. Immediately rumors flooded in claiming the Game of Thrones actor is playing the iconic Marvel villain Modok. Marvel and Disney haven't signed the actor yet, but until we get official word on the character, acclaimed artist BossLogic has imagined what Peter Dinklage looks like as Modok.
ComicBook.com commissioned BossLogic to create this art, which comes just days after the casting report. It's worth noting, though, that Captain America: Civil War writer Christopher Markus, who is also writing Avengers: Infinity War with his writing partner Stephen McFeely, said in an interview last year that he wants to find a way to bring Modok into a Marvel movie. While that is far from any confirmation that Peter Dinklage is playing Modok (Mental/Mobile/Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing), there is another theory that has surfaced. »
If Avengers: Infinity War ends up feeling slightly disjointed, we'll know why. It's being reported this morning that star Benedict Cumberbatch, who will be reprising his role as Doctor Strange, is getting a stand-in for the early part of the shoot. We're not sure if this is the only actor getting such treatment. But it all makes perfect sense.
Avengers: Infinity War is the most mammoth undertaking Marvel has ever set out to accomplish. And the production will span nearly the entire year of 2017, as the Russo Bros. shoot it with Avengers 4 back-to-back. There are a reported 67 main characters. Doing the math, that's a lot of schedules to juggle. And some of the actors aren't going to be ready when production starts in just a few weeks.
Back in 2015, director Denis Villeneuve exploded onto the scene with drug thriller Sicario, a smart, intense and overall impressive piece of filmmaking that left just about everyone pleased. That being said, it didn’t exactly call for a sequel, and with both Villeneuve and star Emily Blunt choosing to move on, it was hard to muster up too much excitement when one was originally announced.
Thankfully, then, things have been coming together rather well for the follow-up, which is titled Soldado. Taylor Sheridan is back again on scripting duties, and in the director’s chair is Stefano Sollima. In front of the camera, meanwhile, are returning stars Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin. Now, we’re hearing about an exciting new addition to the cast, as Stranger Things star Matthew Modine has signed on to play Defense Director James Ridley “opposite Catherine Keener, who plays his Deputy Director.”
Speaking about his plans for the sequel, »

Exclusive: Matthew Modine, who was recently nominated for a Screen Actor’s Guild Award as part of the cast of Netflix’s critically acclaimed original drama Stranger Things, has joined Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin in the Sicario sequel Soldado.

In the film, Modine portrays Secretary of Defense Director James Ridley opposite Catherine Keener, who plays… »
All this week we have been confirming actors for Avengers: Infinity War, but today we get to talk about a new actor joining the cast. Lord Tyrion himself, Peter Dinklage is set to join. He played Bolivar Trask in X-Men: Days Of Future Past brilliantly, so he is not an amateur to the comic world, and Variety reports that he will likely play a key role in Infinity War.
He's Pip!! Gotta be!! https://t.co/LQRl7gYRVd

This could be legit. Dinklage is a great actor, and Pip is a big part of a Thanos storyline. Another commentator on his thread suggested he could be Puck, which would also be cool. »

Just when you thought the cast of Avengers: Infinity War couldn’t get any better, a new report from Variety states that Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage is being eyed for a role in the film. If the actor does come on board the project, he’ll most likely be returning for the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4, which is due out a year after Infinity War.
Signing on would make Dinklage a newcomer to the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, although he’s no stranger to comic book movies. In 2014, the actor played Dr. Bolivar Trask, the creator of the Sentinels and target of an assassination attempt, in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. While Dinklage did fine work in the movie, he was severely underused and didn’t exactly make a strong impression, so if he’s trading Fox’s X-Men universe for Disney’s McU, there’s not a lot of damage done. »

With production rumored to start later this month, Marvel is getting into casting mode for Avengers: Infinity War. Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is reportedly in early talks to star in what is said to be a "key role," although no details about the character have been given. Marvel would not comment on the casting, and while the character's identity has not yet been revealed, there is already plenty of speculation about who he may be playing in this Avengers sequel.
Variety reports that production is now expected to start at some point this summer, which contradicts another report from last month that claimed Marvel was gearing up for a January 23, 2017 production start on Avengers: Infinity War. Filming is expected to take place both in Atlanta, Georgia, at Pinewood Atlanta Studios, and in the U.K. It is also believed that both Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 will shoot back-to-back. »

In arguably one of the most exciting casting additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, it has been revealed today that Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is in talks to join the already massive cast of Avengers: Infinity War (and the untitled fourth instalment).
There’s no news on who he’s playing, but it’s said to be a “key role,” so the possibilities are endless. On Twitter, fans are already speculating that he may have been cast as M.O.D.O.K., Pip the Troll (a close ally of Adam Warlock), The Living Tribunal, or even an ally of Thanos.
We’ll have to wait and see, but with Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 shooting back to back over the summer, Dinklage has a gap in his schedule thanks to Game of Thrones changing its production due to the shorter episode count »

“Game of Thrones” actor Peter Dinklage is in early talks for a role in Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War,” TheWrap has learned. It’s unclear what role he’d play in “Infinity War,” which brother directors Joe and Anthony Russo aim to begin shooting this summer for release on May 4, 2018.

Are Tyrion Lannister and Tony Stark about to cross paths?
Marvel had no comment.
Production on the seventh season of “Game of Thrones” recently wrapped. Since the schedule for the show has moved from a summer shoot to a fall shoot, Dinklage’s schedule allowed him to board the latest “Avengers” pic which is expected to shoot sometime in early summer.
The plan is shoot the next two “Avengers” films (“Infinity War” and a yet untitled sequel) back-to-back. Sources indicate Dinklage is expected to appear in both.
Plot details are vague, other then the superhero team returning to face the Marvel mega-villain Thanos (voiced by Josh Brolin). Dinklage’s role is also unknown at this time. »

Joel and Ethan Coen are expanding to television with a limited anthology Western series titled The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. The acclaimed filmmakers will direct the project from their own original script and concept, Variety reports.
The Coens will partner with Annapurna Pictures' to reportedly aim for an "innovative approach that could combine television and theatrical." According to Variety, Buster Scruggs proved too challenging to adapt into a single film, so the directors intend to shoot the project as a miniseries.
No concrete plot details are available about the series, »
