'Captain Marvel' Not in 'Avengers 2'; Female Director Wanted

14 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier in the week it was reported by 'Bum Juice' scoop extraordinaire El Mayimbe at Latino Review that Carol Danvers had been cast for the Marvel Phase Three adventure Captain Marvel, and would be making her debut appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Fuel was added to the fire when toy photos from the movie appeared online that included Captain Marvel in the line-up. While this rumor has been lingering around for awhile, Nerdist now calls it completely false, saying the character is not going to appear on the big screen this summer:

"A source close to production confirms that Captain Marvel will not appear in Avengers 2."

It is not known, however, if the first part of Latino Review's scoop is correct. Did Marvel already cast the role of Carol Danvers? If that is true, we haven't heard whom landed this coveted part in Marvel's Phase Three line-up just yet. »

Female Director Wanted For Captain Marvel; X-men: Apocalypse Looking To Cast 'Psylocke'

17 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Mini-scoops on today's #MeetTheMoviePress: Fox casting X-men's Psylocke & Captain Marvel will have a female director https://t.co/cl9O6wupsG — Jeff Sneider (@TheInSneider) March 27, 2015 "Fox right now are casting Psylocke," The Wrap's Jeff Sneider reveals in the video above. Fans have been hoping to see the character on the big screen for some time, but does X-Men: Apocalypse really need another mutant? Regardless, the hunt for Captain Marvel's director is heating up by the sound of it, as the reporter adds: "The Captain Marvel director is definitely going to be female." He goes on to hint (but not confirm) that there have been rumours in Hollywood that Angelina Jolie could direct, but adds that he's also heard it may come down to two possibilities for Marvel. Either way, he expects us to hear about Captain Marvel and Black Panther directors before the summer. »

Angelina Jolie planned surgery for two years, Brad Pitt's wife carries BRCA1 gene

25 March 2015 7:26 PM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Brad Pitt's wife Angelina Jolie had been planning to have her ovaries removed for two years. The 39-year-old actress underwent a double mastectomy in 2013 after discovering she carries the mutated BRCA1 gene, which meant she had an 87 per cent chance of contracting breast cancer and a 50 per cent chance of ovarian cancer, but she and oncologist Dr. Kristin Funk - who performed her mastectomy but not the laparoscopic bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy she had last week - agreed to wait until the ''appropriate time'' before she underwent the second preventative procedure. And it was agreed Angelina would have both ovaries and her fallopian tubes removed last week after recent tests revealed markers she could be in the early stages of the disease. Dr Funk, from the Pink Lotus Breast Centre in California, told 'Entertainment Tonight': ''We had strategised about a way to manage the ovaries with surveillance until she »

24 March 2015 4:45 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Angelina Jolie‘s decision to reveal a recent surgery in combating the development of cancer has the medical community, survivors and fans praising her in the press and on social media. The actress and director penned an op-ed for The New York Times on Tuesday, detailing a decision to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes, after a blood test pointed to potential early signs of cancer. Jolie underwent a similarly preventative procedure, a double-mastectomy, in May 2013 to prevent breast cancer. Though the procedure forces the “Maleficent” star into early menopause and means she can no longer have children, Jolie said: “I feel feminine, »

A DVD version of Unbroken will be aimed specifically for Christians, and it will include over 90 minutes of extra material. This special "Legacy Of Faith" edition that will put greater focus on Louis Zamperini.s life once he returned to America. In the years after surviving his plane crashing into the ocean, then being adrift at sea for 47 days, and ultimately being held in a prisoner-of-war camp, Zamperini went through many personal struggles. Eventually he had a religious epiphany, which is what helped him cope with his repeated trauma. Rather than focusing on Louis Zamperini.s religious renaissance, Angelina Jolie actually left this plotline out of the theatrical version of Unbroken. It.s been suggested that the movie.s relatively successful haul at the box office - which saw the biopic gross $161 million worldwide from a $65 million budget - could have been increased if Angelina Jolie had decided to include »

Angelina Jolie Cancer-Related Ovary Removal Creating False Health Scare

24 March 2015 12:20 PM, PDT | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Angelina Jolie’s decision to have her ovaries and Fallopian tubes removed to ward off cancer is creating a false health scare among women, largely because of the way tabloids are hyping the news, released today (Mar. 24). The publicity surrounding Jolie’s condition could cause women to worry about their susceptibility and rush to get tested for the same gene mutation Jolie suffers from. What’s more, it costs from hundreds to thousands of dollars to test for the mutated genes. But absent a family history of cancer and other signs, testing is most likely unnecessary, according to The National Institute of Cancer. ...Read More »

24 March 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Angelina Jolie takes us behind-the-scenes on the Australian set of Unbroken in our exclusive featurette for the Blu-ray and DVD, which is available starting today. The filmmaker, who makes her follow-up to her 2011 directorial debut In the Land of Blood and Honey with Unbroken, explains that this Australian location helps audience members "feel what they must have felt," stuck in the middle of "this dense jungle." She also adds that she wanted the audience to experience how overwhelming this place really was for the characters, after being stranded at sea for so long.

Unbroken follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis "Louie" Zamperini who survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash during World War II - only to be caught by the Japanese navy and sent to a series of prisoner-of-war camps. The inspirational biopic is currently available on Digital HD, »

10 Terrible Films Starring Great Actors

24 March 2015 11:26 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

On paper, “Serena” should have been something arriving in theaters with a great splash. With an Oscar-winning prestige director in the shape of Susanne Bier, it’s the adaptation of an acclaimed novel that once attracted the attention of Darren Aronofsky and Angelina Jolie. It has some stunning production value and lavish period costumes and sets, and features two of the world’s biggest and most lauded stars: Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence, and three-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper, coming off mega-smash “American Sniper.” And yet the film slinks into limited release this Friday, having debuted on VOD a few weeks back.  If you’ve seen it there, or on its release elsewhere in the world, or even just read our review from last year, you’ll know there’s a reason for this: it’s terrible, overwrought, incoherent and uneven. It could probably pass for an unintentionally funny melodrama parody, a la “The Spoils Of Babylon, »

24 March 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

While "Fifty Shades of Grey" is getting an unrated cut when it hits home video, two other films are undergoing some modifications in attempts to appeal to a wider audience.

The new rating is for "sexuality including references and innuendo, action/violence and brief strong language" and the press release claims: "And now, even more comedy lovers can experience the hilarity with the uproarious PG-13 cut of the film, Mortdecai PG-13, available exclusively on Digital HD and On Demand."

Meanwhile Universal Pictures Home Entertainment is trying to garner a larger faith-based audience for the home video release of Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken". To that effect, the studio is set to »

Angelina Jolie on Preventative Surgery: "I Will Not Be Able to Have Any More Children"

24 March 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Angelina Jolie underwent a surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes last week. The actress announced the news in a candid op-ed for The New York Times on Monday. She said she is now in menopause as a result of the procedure. "I will not be able to have any more children, and I expect some physical changes," she wrote. In the most emotional part of the piece, Angelina said she is grounded in the decision because she knows her "children will never have to say, 'Mom died of ovarian cancer.'" The op-ed touches on her entire medical journey, starting with the testing she underwent. According to Angelina, her doctor explained that a test showed a "number of inflammatory markers that are elevated, and taken together they could be a sign of early cancer." She went on to explain her reaction to the news that he wanted to »

Further surgery for Angelina Jolie by Jennie Kermode - 2015-03-24 14:02:04

24 March 2015 7:02 AM, PDT | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

Angelina Jolie speaking at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict last year.

Two years after she had a double mastectomy to reduce her chances of developing breast cancer, Angelina Jolie has chosen to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in order to protect herself from ovarian cancer. The actress has a faulty BRCA1 gene, which places her at higher risk of developing both these diseases. She has opted to be open about her treatment, writing in today's New York Times, in the hope of making others more aware of their options.

Jolie lost her mother to breast cancer and was recently told that she had symptoms often seen in the body just prior to the development of ovarian cancer, so felt that immediate surgery was the safest option. Although oophorectomy is a much simpler operation that mastectomy, it has more dramatic effects on the body because »

Angelina Jolie Has Ovaries Removed for Cancer Prevention

24 March 2015 6:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Angelina Jolie had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in an effort to prevent cancer, the Oscar-winning actress revealed in a New York Times op-ed Tuesday.

Jolie wrote that she made the decision to have the surgery in part as a result of a previous discovery of a mutation she carries on the BRCA1 gene, which indicated that she had a high risk of developing both breast and ovarian cancer. Her mother, grandmother, and aunt all died from cancer.

The actress made a similar revelation in 2013, when she wrote another Nyt op-ed about having a preventive double mastectomy, also a result of her BRCA1 test. This time around, Jolie said, she had been planning to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed as a preventive measure, but the results from another round of testing (of CA-125, a protein found in blood) just two weeks ago revealed that she was showing signs of "early cancer, »
