Now that Captain America: Civil War has finally hit theaters, the next big Marvel Cinematic Universe team-up will be the biggest one to date: Avengers: Infinity War . Part 1. This conflict will see Earth.s mightiest heroes take on Josh Brolin's Mad Titan, Thanos . who has finally gotten his hands on his beloved Infinity Gauntlet. However, The Avengers won.t be the only heroes to square off against Thanos when he finally arrives on our home world. The creative forces behind Infinity War have recently come out and explained that it only makes sense for Star-Lord and his band of Guardians of the Galaxy to show up and lend a hand. During a recent Nerdist podcast, Infinity War screenwriter Christopher Markus explained the logic behind the Guardians of the Galaxy's decision to make their way to Earth once Thanos plays his gauntlet-adorned hand: Let.s put it this way: »
Later this year, production will begin on Marvel's epic two-part adventure Avengers: Infinity War, which is set for release in May of 2018 and 2019. The studio hasn't offered any confirmation about which cast members will be present in this superhero adventure, but directors Anthony and Joe Russo have previously teased that there will be upwards of 67 Marvel characters in the movie. Though many of these characters won't have leading roles. Still, many are wondering exactly who will be showing up for Infinity War, and who won't. Today, it seems we have gotten confirmation about a popular superhero group's inclusion from writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
The two-part Infinity War movie has been said to be the "culmination" of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far, and while the McU certainly won't "end" after this movie, it will close out Phase 3, and likely pave the way for big changes in Phase 4. No plot details are confirmed, »

George Clooney and the Coen brothers look to have wrapped up their unofficial American Idiot trilogy with the release of Burn After Reading in 2008, but low and behold, when Joel and Ethan Coen came knocking seven years later, Clooney answered the call to headline Hail, Caesar! as dim-witted Hollywood superstar, Baird Whitlock.
Set against the movie industry’s Golden Age, the Coen’s period dramedy centered on Josh Brolin’s studio fixer, who is tasked with locating the kidnapped Whitlock or risk paying an exorbitant ransom. Alden Ehrenreich – your new Han Solo – Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson and Frances McDormand also star.
Now that Hail, Caesar! is fast approaching a release across home video, We Got This Covered has a prize pack to give away to one lucky reader. Bundling together that aforementioned American Idiot trilogy, the grand prize includes Blu-rays of Burn After Reading, Intolerable Cruelty and O Brother, »

Earlier today, we reported that Marvel's massive blockbuster Captain America: Civil War has become the biggest movie of the year, earning just over $981 million worldwide, passing Disney's Zootopia. Although it still has some work to do to catch Deadpool ($362.5 million) on the domestic side. This superhero adventure kicks off Marvel's Phase 3 lineup, which will culminate with Avengers: Infinity War Part I (May 4, 2018) and Avengers: Infinity War Part II (May 3, 2019). Between now and then, Marvel will release a slew of other movies to round out its Phase 3 lineup, and because of these new movies, writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely recently revealed that their work is far from over on the script, even though they recently turned in their second draft.
Later this year, Phase 3 will continue with Doctor Strange (November 4), followed by Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (May 5, 2017), Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 7, 2017), Thor Ragnarok (November 3, 2017) and Black Panther (February 16, 2018), before Avengers: »
George Clooney’s Suburbicon has just picked up Woody Harrelson. According to The Wrap, the former True Detective star has now officially come aboard as part of the forthcoming crime comedy film, scripted by Joel and Ethan Coen.
Suburbicon is set in the quiet family town of Suburbicon in the ‘50s. The film centers on a deadly home invasion that forces a family into the murky waters of blackmail and revenge. The film boasts an impressive cast comprised of Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac and Josh Brolin. Needless to say, Harrelson, who previously worked with Brolin in the Coen Brothers’ No Country For Old Men, is a welcome addition.
Harrelson can be seen next in Now You See Me 2 and The Duel with Liam Hemsworth. He can also be seen alongside Laura Dern and Judy Greer in the forthcoming screen adaptation of Daniel Clowes’ Wilson and Rob Reiner’s Lbj. »

The Wrap has the scoop, confirming that Harrelson has booked a place in an ensemble that already boasts Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Josh Brolin and Star Wars: The Force Awakens alum Oscar Isaac. Meanwhile, Joel and Ethan Coen, who were once in line to direct before passing the mantle on to Clooney, penned the delightfully dark script, one designed to spotlight the best and worst humanity has to offer.
Rooted in a 1950s setting, Suburbicon has already drawn comparisons to the Coen brothers’ Blood Simple for its film noir tenets, revolving around a home invasion that takes a turn for the worse and results in “a picture perfect family turns to blackmail, revenge, and betrayal.” No word yet on how Harrelson will fit into proceedings, »

About The Film
Remember the big Sony leak at the end of 2014? The one that made everyone panic about that really rather rubbish North Korea-baiting Rogen/Franco comedy? Well aside from the news that Spider-Man might end up coming back to the McU (and arguably the positive reaction to that helped Spidey end up in Captain America: Civil War), one of the most surprising revelations was that Sony was considering crossing over its hugely successful Jump Street franchise with none other than the Men in Black. Cue a collective mass ‘Wtf???’ from almost everybody, and surely a “that’ll never happen!”. Get some of that humble pie folks because not only did Sony announce the crossover was on, but in March named James Bobin–director of The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted and the upcoming sequel nobody wanted, Alice: Through the »

With 2015 almost over, it's time to start looking ahead to what 2016 has in store. Now, we know that with Star Wars: The Force Awakens opening this year, it is going to be a tall order trying to top 2015. However, 2016 certainly seems intent on giving it a try. This could be the biggest box office year yet!
It would be very hard for one film to compete with the massiveness that is Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And that is why one shouldn't even contemplate trying to go head on with that mack truck of a cinematic spectacle. If one, however, takes all the films from 2016 together, they certainly serve notice that the rest of the movie industry hasn't been asleep these past few years.
And the best part? The slate for 2016 is probably the most diverse, for tentpole properties, that we have seen in years. We have films to satisfy your superhero tastes, »
Unveiling his “deepest and most diverse” Cannes sales roster, Patrick Wachsberger and his team arrive on the Croisette with eight titles.
The slate includes Now You See Me 3, the latest episode in the heist franchise whose second episode is about to open worldwide on June 10.
3D motion capture fantasy adventure L.O.R.D. hails from writer-director Guo Jingming. China’s LeVision produced with Original Force and financed with other partners.
The roster includes the Lionsgate/CBS Films action drama Patriots Day starring Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman, Kevin Bacon and J.K. Simmons in the story of the manhunt that followed the Boston Marathon bombing.

The Summit Entertainment/Black Label action title is one of several new additions to a monster eight-film slate that will be unveiled in full later on Tuesday.

As previously announced exclusively on Screendaily, Lionsgate International will also commence sales on Marrowbone.
J.A. Bayona serves as executive producer on the feature directorial debut of regular screenwriter Sergio G. Sanchez about siblings in a haunted family manor house.

The lineup includes Summit Entertainment/Black Label action drama “No Exit,” starring Josh Brolin and Miles Teller in the saga of firefighters who battled one of the most dangerous wildfires in history; “American Assassin,” starring Michael Keaton and based on Vince Flynn’s book series; and coming-of-age drama “Wonder,” starring Julia Roberts and Jacob Tremblay.
The slate includes two international titles — “Marrowbone,” which teams executive producer J.A. Bayona, producer Belen Atienza and writer-director Sergio G. Sanchez in the story of four children who hide from the world in a farm that holds a terrible secret; and China’s first 3D motion capture film, the fantasy adventure “L.O.R.D.,” writer-director Guo Jingming’s follow-up to his Tiny Times franchise.

Our series on remakes continues with a movie which is ironic because it’s about a man who can’t be seen but in reality, it’s actually the movie which shouldn’t be seen. This week, Cinelinx looks at The Hollow Man (2000).
The Hollow Man is a modern reimaging of the oft-copied Invisible Man story, first brought to the screen by Universal Studios in 1933. The story is based on H. G. Wells' famous science fiction novel “The Invisible Man”, published in 1897, which told the tale of a scientist who develops an invisibility serum and uses himself as a test subject, becoming both invisible and dangerously insane.
The 1933 classic The Invisible Man, which was part of Universal Studios cluster of successful horror film franchises, was directed by James Whale, who also directed Frankenstein and the Bride of Frankenstein. The 1933 version has an impressive 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It was selected »

[Mild spoilers for Hail, Caesar! and the Star Wars saga follow.]
Though it may seem that no-one other than Harrison Ford, Nathan Fillion, or Chris Pratt could do justice to the character of Han Solo, the next best thing is someone who's talented, likeable, and can play a character perfectly. Alden Ehrenreich displayed those qualities in the Coen brothers' quirky comedy about the search for meaning, Hail, Caesar!, as the old-fashioned cowboy actor Hobie Doyle, the most straight-shooting and noble of the characters in the film (though the actress that the studio sets him up with, Carlotta, seems like a nice person too).
It's interesting that both Hobie Doyle and Han Solo are essentially cowboys, who don't fit in with most of those around them; but are nevertheless in some ways opposites. »
