Dusted: 7 Other Ways to Use Translucent Powder

15 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

As celebs like Angelina Jolie, Drew Barrymore and Kate Hudson know, translucent powder is the dubious frenemy of our makeup bags. When used for high-flash situations (like when strolling the red carpet for a blockbuster premiere), the ghostly stuff turns stark-white in print—making it look like you had your makeup done by Keebler elves. But when employed for other primping purposes, the lifesaver can help keep makeup in place, spare your skin and hair from imperfections and boost dramatic looks. With the help of a few E! Style Collective members, we find out how to harness the transformative power of translucent powder for good, not evil. Mattify lip color: Going with a bold lip color? Help keep »

WikiLeaks publishes 200,000 Sony hacking files

16 April 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

WikiLeaks has published thousands more documents from the hacking of Sony Pictures, with one email linking the company's CEO to a Us military research cooperation.

Julian Assange's website has made more than 170,000 emails and 30,000 documents available online after the hacking in December.

The data has been put into an archive which is fully searchable and includes emails that connect CEO Michael Lynton to the Rand corporation, a Us military research corporation.

In a press release, Assange said: "This archive shows the inner workings of an influential multinational corporation. It is newsworthy and at the centre of a geo-political conflict. It belongs in the public domain. WikiLeaks will ensure it stays there."

Sony responded with the statement: "We vehemently disagree with WikiLeaks' assertion that this material belongs in the public domain."

December's leak caused huge embarrassment for Sony, with leaked emails revealing derogatory remarks about Angelina Jolie, comments between then-ceo »

Sony Pictures Blindsided by WikiLeaks Document Dump

16 April 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Just when Sony Pictures thought it was done with the devastating hacking attack that brought the studio to its knees last winter, Julian Assange and WikiLeaks published thousands of internal documents and correspondence  — totally blindsiding the studio and its public relations team early Thursday.

Not only has Assange brought more unwelcome attention to one of the most painful chapters in Sony’s history, WikiLeaks has made the correspondence readily searchable and accessible.

Sony is still weighing its legal options, which may be limited given that Assange and his compatriots have built their reputation on exposing secret documents, emails and videos.

Many of the Sony emails and financial information had been previously combed over last winter when a group calling itself Guardians of Peace first unleashed reams of documents, yet the scale of the hack is so vast that it is likely more unwanted details of the inner workings of the »

Movie News: 'Wonder Woman' Director Found; Zack Snyder Teases 'Batman v Superman' Trailer

16 April 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Wonder Woman: Following the unfortunate depature of Michelle MacLaren as director of Wonder Woman due to creative differences, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment made a remarkably quick substitution by hiring Patty Jenkins for the gig. Jenkins was once attached to direct Thor: The Dark World but left due to creative differences. Her last and only feature is 2003's Monster. [THR]   Captain Marvel: Many fans of the McU are now hoping that MacLaren fully defects to the enemy and takes on Captain Marvel, but there's also been rumor going around for a while that Marvel Studios is eyeing Angelina Jolie for the job. Now there's confirmation that she is in serious consideration for the female superhero movie. She was also said to be up for Wonder Woman, but that idea...

Rumor: Angelina Jolie under consideration to direct Captain Marvel

16 April 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

With Patty Jenkins stepping in as director on DC's Wonder Woman movie, Marvel may be in contention to nab Angelina Jolie to direct Captain Marvel. That's right, Jolie will go from kicking ass on screen to potentially directing a kick ass woman. Collider originally reported sources saying Jolie was a frontrunner for both Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel. Either project would have benefited from having her behind the camera, purely from a publicity standpoint. The question is »

Angelina Jolie linked to director’s chair on Captain Marvel

16 April 2015 3:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Collider, Angelina Jolie (Unbroken) is under consideration to take on the director’s chair on Marvel Studios’ first female led superhero movie, 2018’s Captain Marvel.

The report emerged last night, with Collider also claiming that Jolie was wanted by Warner Bros. for Wonder Woman – a project that actually secured Patty Jenkins (Monster) as director just moments later.

Given that half of the story has already been debunked, it’s unlikely that this report holds much – if any – weight. However, if Marvel is looking at high profile female directors for Captain Marvel then you’d have to assume Jolie will at least feature on the shortlist.

Would you like to see Angelina Jolie directing Captain Marvel?

Wonder Woman's New Director

15 April 2015 10:48 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With the departure of Michelle MacLaren from Wonder Woman fans have been wondering who would be able to fill her shoes. Well parting a project for creative differences is nothing new for the replacement as well. 

Patty Jenkins who was originally supposed to direct Thor: The Dark World is now stepping up to direct the project. Now there are quite a few rumors floating but this apparently shoots down the one that Angelina Jolie would attach herself to the project and hopefully this means she’ll be heading up Captain Marvel.

 Patty Jenkins credits include the hit Monster, and several television pilots. But with such a low filmography does she have the chops to direct a project this big? Or will a fresh look at this property help it in the long run.  We’ll have to wait considering 2017 is the earliest this is projected to hit.

Captain Marvel: Angelina Jolie in the running to direct

15 April 2015 10:32 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Angelina Jolie is apparently on Marvel's wishlist to bring Carol Danvers to the big screen....

There were very, very vague rumours flying around a few weeks ago, that had linked Angelina Jolie with the director's chair for the Captain Marvel movie, that Marvel Studios is planning. Turns out though that there may have been something to them.

Collider - one of the more reliable online sources - has restated that Jolie is very much on the Marvel wishlist (and that she was interesting Warner Bros for its Wonder Woman project, that has since signed up Patty Jenkins). Jolie, of course, made her directorial debut last year with Unbroken, a film that did $115m of business at the Us box office alone. According to the site, "we now have confirmation that she's definitely under consideration for the job", although that's, of course, a long way away from 'she's definitely taking the job on'. »

Angelina Jolie to Helm 'Captain Marvel'c

15 April 2015 5:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman make for an interesting pair of upcoming comic book movies. Both are led by female superhero characters, and all signs thus far point to both film's studios searching for female directors to tackle their respective films. That said, while I was in the midst of writing this up, it was announced Patty Jenkins is set to take over the recently vacated director's chair for Wonder Woman, and now a recent report from Collider suggests Angelina Jolie could be the woman to take on Captain Marvel. The report leads with the headline, "Could Angelina Jolie Direct Captain Marvel or Wonder Womanc", a question that strikes me as odd given her directorial efforts thus far: the first is an art house drama that grossed next to nothing, and the second is a major studio World War II movie that failed to garner the acclaim we all expected given the talent involved. »

'Wonder Woman' Finds New Director in Patty Jenkins

15 April 2015 4:59 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Patty Jenkins at one point was going to be the first female director in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, before stepping off Thor: The Dark World, which was then given to Alan Taylor. Now, she will be the first female director in DC's Cinematic multiverse (they are the ones with the multiverse, rightc). After the departure of director Michelle MacLaren on Monday from the forthcoming Wonder Woman, Jenkins will step in. This is also coming on the heels of rumors of Angelina Jolie possibly circling directing duties on Marvel's Captain Marvel, another female-led superhero film. I guess this means women can only direct women superhero films and not vice versac But I guess progress is progress and I'm glad these women are being looked at for big blockbusters. However, it just feels a little odd they are just being looked at for the female-led featuresc If Jenkins, MacLaren, or Jolie were »

'Wonder Woman' Movie Gets 'Monster' Director Patty Jenkins

15 April 2015 4:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Patty Jenkins has closed a deal to direct Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman, two days after the studio parted ways with director Michelle MacLaren when creative differences arose. Heat Vision Blog reports that the studio wanted to move quickly to find a new director, so they wouldn't lose momentum on the project, which is currently slated for release on June 23, 2017. The news comes just hours after another report revealed that Angelina Jolie was being sought to direct both Wonder Woman for Warner Bros. and Captain Marvel for Marvel Studios.

You may recall that Patty Jenkins was once set to direct Marvel's Thor: The Dark World, which would have made her the first female director to take the helm for a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. She ended up parting ways with the Marvel sequel, which was eventually directed by Alan Taylor. Gal Gadot is attached to star as the title character, »

Patty Jenkins Officially The Director On 'Wonder Woman'

15 April 2015 4:43 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »


A few minutes ago I publish the Angelina Jolie Wonder Woman rumor then Borys Kit from The Hollywood Reporter straight up kills that rumor by officially breaking that Patty Jenkins has landed the directing gig on Wonder Woman!

Patty Jenkins, who at one point was to direct Thor 2 for rival Marvel Studios, has closed a deal to helm Warner Bros.’s female super-hero movie.

A hot choice in my opinion. Loved her film Monster and the few episodes of Entourage she directed as well.

Original Thor 2 Director Patty Jenkins To Helm Wonder Woman For Warner Bros.

15 April 2015 4:37 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Two days ago, it was revealed that Michelle MacLaren had parted ways with Warner Bros. due to "creative differences" about their respective ideas on how Wonder Woman should be portrayed on the big screen. There have since been rumours about that being down to everything from the period setting to talking tigers, but regardless, the studio has already found a replacement! That will be Monster helmer Patty Jenkins, a woman who is no stranger to creative differences after parting ways with Marvel for that very reason a few years back when she signed on to direct Thor: The Dark World. The deal has already closed apparently, so if those Angelina Jolie rumours are true, perhaps she decided to pick Captain Marvel over Wonder Woman! You have to imagine that Warner Bros. would have faced some backlash if they'd gone for a male director after MacLaren's departure, and Jenkins is a solid choice. »

Patty Jenkins To Direct Wonder Woman

15 April 2015 4:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In one of the fastest turnarounds in recent memory, Warner Bros. has found a new director for its standalone Wonder Woman movie. Mere days after Michelle MacLaren exited the project, Monster helmer Patty Jenkins has now been locked in to direct.

Warner Bros.’ decision to secure a new director implies its eagerness to push forward. Since Wonder Woman was first announced last year, the matter of who would usher the iconic warrior to the screen has remained at the forefront of industry chatter. MacLaren’s appointment was met with universal glee, as the experienced TV showrunner displayed zest and enthusiasm in her approach to the character. Her take apparently steered the beloved Amazonian away from her traditional comic backstory and into a new direction, and thus, the creative differences reason was cited in the majority of reports on her departure.

This news comes directly after a report signaling Angelina Jolie’s involvement hit the web. »

Will Angelina Jolie Direct 'Wonder Woman' or 'Captain Marvel'?

15 April 2015 4:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in February, an unconfirmed report revealed that Disney offered Angelina Jolie a whopping $20 million to direct their upcoming Phase Three adventure Captain Marvel. We haven't heard much about her involvement since then, but the project is moving forward, following this week's report that screenwriters Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) have come aboard to work on the script. Today we have a new report from Collider which reveals that Angelina Jolie is still in contention to direct Captain Marvel, but she is also being sought to direct Warner Bros.' DC Comics adaptation Wonder Woman as well.

This news comes just two days after Michelle MacLaren left Wonder Woman, citing creative differences. It isn't clear at this time if Angelina Jolie is even interested in taking on either project, but one thing is for certain: she cannot do both. Wonder Woman already has a June 23, 2017 release date in place, »

Angelina Reportedly Being Courted To Direct Both 'Wonder Woman' & 'Captain Marvel'

15 April 2015 3:58 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Update: Patty Jenkins is now directing Wonder Woman for Warners!

Cool news! My buddy Steve over at Collider is reporting that not only is Angelina Jolie being courted to direct Captain Marvel for Marvel, but she is also being eyed to direct Wonder Woman for DC. Talk about a real life Marvel vs DC! Faboulous time to be a fanboy folks. Wow.

She was supposed to direct Africa with her husband Brad Pitt, but financing supposedly fell apart. Now she seems to have an availability. When it was originally reported as a gossip item in Ok! magazine, I didn't give it any thought, but in Steve I do trust. Cool news nonetheless.

Collider also makes this very good point...

. In addition to a strong female director telling the story of a strong female superhero, she has the profile to attract non-comic book fans. The press loves her, she has no problem doing interviews, »

Apparently Angelina Jolie Is Being Looked At To Direct Wonder Woman & Captain Marvel

15 April 2015 3:15 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Collider reports that actress/director Angelina Jolie (Unbroken, In The Land Of Blood And Honey) is being courted by Marvel and Warner Bros. to helm both studios' first ever female driven movies; Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman. There were whispers of Jolie being looked at to bring Carol Danvers to the big screen a while back, but apparently she is now "definitely under consideration for the job. Marvel just set a couple of writers to this so it stands to reason that getting a director on board would be their next move. We also found out yesterday that Michelle MacLaren had parted ways with the Wonder Woman movie over creative differences, so WB will obviously be searching for a director to replace her fairly quickly if they want to keep things on schedule, and word is they want Jolie as that replacement. With just a year between films, only one »

Rumor: Angelina Jolie Being Courted For 'Captain Marvel' Or 'Wonder Woman'

15 April 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, that didn't take long. Just about 48 hours since it was reported that Michelle MacLaren exited "Wonder Woman" over "creative differences," a new name is being tossed into the ring, and it's pretty high wattage. But before we get too crazy, let's bear in mind this is a rumor and treat it as such. Collider reports that Angelina Jolie is "under consideration" for Marvel's "Captain Marvel," and that she's a "possibility" to direct "Wonder Woman" for Warner Bros./DC Comics. Obviously, she can only take one, and it would depend on if she even wants the job anyway. She is currently attached to helm the biopic, "Africa," which is due to lens this summer, but the current status of that gig is unknown.
