Tom Hardy Was Wanted as Young Wolverine in Discarded X-Men Prequel

21 September 2017 10:17 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hugh Jackman finally hung up his Wolverine claws following the release of Logan this year and his tenure as Wolverine is officially over. Not that it's going to happen anytime soon, but Fox is open to rebooting the character at some point. Tom Hardy's name has come up quite a bunch when it comes to replacing Jackman. As it turns out, Tom Hardy was already in mind to play Wolverine in another X-Men movie when Matthew Vaughn was working on his follow-up to X-Men: First Class.

Matthew Vaughn recently spoke with Deadline in order to promote Kingsman: The Golden Circle. He talked a bit about his time with the X-Men franchise and revealed a bit about what his second entry in the franchise would have been. He wanted to do another movie before doing X-Men: Days of Future Past, but Fox wasn't having it. Had he been afforded the chance, »

John Ostrander: The Family of Sociopaths

17 September 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Commercials are the point of commercial TV. I realize that, for those of you who do only streaming services, this concept may seem a bit foreign, but your monthly fees take the place of paid commercials, assuming the streaming service isn’t double-dipping.

Advertisers buy time to pitch products and/or services and/or whatever and the amount that the channel can charge is based on how many people are watching and which demographic groups those people represent. That’s why an ad during the Superbowl costs so much.

You probably knew all that.

I tend to mentally surf commercials; they’re on but I’m tuned out. Some I wake up for because either there’s some element I like or it really annoys me and I want to throw something at the TV. An example of the former is a commercial with Mark Wahlberg as the spokesman at »

Seth MacFarlane’s The Orville to feature Star Trek actor cameos

16 September 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Seth MacFarlane recently took to Reddit for an Ama to promote his latest Fox sci-fi comedy, The Orville, where he revealed that the show may feature a cameo or two from the actors of the franchise that helped inspire it, Star Trek.

When one user asked the Family Guy and American Dad creator/star if he had any plans to have Star Trek actors cameo on the show, MacFarlane responded with a vague “We got one or two in the lineup….”

Comment from discussion I am Seth MacFarlane. Ama..

While he doesn’t offer up any hints about which actors will appear on the show, it sounds like at least a few Star Trek stars are embracing The Orville, which is simultaneously a parody and love letter to the classic space franchise.

William Shatner always seems gung-ho about appearing in Star Trek rip-offs/send-ups and even returned to voice James T. »

‘The Wilde Wedding’ Review: Glenn Close Leads All-Star Cast to Oblivion

15 September 2017 | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In the movies, when families come together, zaniness ensues — and it’s usually predictable to the point of tediousness. When you see above-the-title names such as Glenn Close, John Malkovich, Minnie Driver, and Patrick Stewart, however, you think, Will it be…? Could it be…? The answer is no. At least that’s true in the case of “The Wilde Wedding,” whose very title serves as a double entendre for nuptial-related shenanigans. Written and directed by Damian Harris (“Bad Company”), the farce revolves around actress Eve Wilde (Close) and her fifth marriage, to novelist Harold (Stewart, with a highly unflattering head of gray. »

Logan is the first Academy screener sent to Oscar voters

15 September 2017 2:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The 90th Academy Awards are still a while away, but with plenty of high quality movies already on voters’ radars, now is the time for studios to start making moves to ensure that their films are given the recognition they deserve.

According to Deadline the first DVD screener sent to the Academy voters is the Fox superhero film Logan, starring Hugh Jackman as the titular hero. Of course, it probably  comes as little surprise to many fans that Fox would push this film for Oscar gold, considering the success that it achieved for the studio.

Whilst superhero movies have never fared too well at the Oscars, this may change with James Mangold’s Logan, a film which by all accounts could be in with a shout for Best Screenplay, or for acting nominations for the moving performances of both Jackman and his co-star, Patrick Stewart.

The Wilde Wedding – Review

14 September 2017 9:46 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

With the big end of the year holidays still a couple of weeks away, what kind of big event can gather a big family (or a diverse acting ensemble)? It’s gotta’ be a comedy so a funeral is probably out of the question, although both the British and Us versions of Death At A Funeral are pretty darned hilarious. No, there’s got to be a romantic angle, so the setting should probably be a wedding. Film makers have used them for lots of comedies that are ripe with conflict from all the versions of Father Of The Bride to those big cast showcases like Robert Altman’s A Wedding and the big, big superstar-studded , appropriately named The Big Wedding just three years ago. And like that flick, some of the exes are involved, upping the tension and making for The Wilde Wedding that lives up to its name »

Fox Is Making A Push For Logan At The Oscars

14 September 2017 6:12 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For 17 long, long years, Hugh Jackman brought Wolverine to life with such a raw intensity that it’s difficult to imagine anyone else donning those iconic adamantium claws anytime soon. That saga, one with many ups and downs, reached its conclusion back in March with the release of Logan, James Mangold’s poignant, R-rated finale that struck a chord with critics and X-Men fans the world over. And even now, many months since it first hit theatres, the film continues to find itself making headlines.

This time, it’s because 20th Century Fox has made their intention to give the flick a strong Oscar push quite clear, with the studio sending out “for your consideration” screeners to Academy voters this week. We’re not sure what nominations they’re hoping for, but Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Director seem likely. Who knows, maybe even Patrick Stewart will get a Best Supporting Actor nod? »

Early-Year Releases Wrestle Oscar Attention Away From Festival Circuit

6 September 2017 4:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the Venice-Telluride-Toronto film festival corridor begins to churn out something resembling an Oscar season beat sheet, a handful of earlier 2017 releases are speaking up, lest they be lost in the fall prestige clutter.

Wednesday night, 20th Century Fox will hold a screening of James Mangold’s “Logan” — on the Warner Bros. lot, oddly enough — with Mangold and star Hugh Jackman on hand for a Q&A. The film hit theaters less than a week after last February’s Oscars ceremony and went on to rack up over $616 million in global box office receipts. It also remains one of the year’s most critically acclaimed films.

The Best of the First Two Thirds of 2017

1 September 2017 9:54 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

2017 is just flying by! As we have now wrapped up August and are charging headfirst into the month of September, I wanted to once again put a bow on everything that’s come before the impending fall festival season. That way, it could focus us more clearly on the awards contenders to come, all the while remembering the hopefuls from the parts of 2017 we’ve completed. As such, today I’m putting out my list of the best of the first third of the year so far. Below you’ll see what the first eight months have brought us, including some films seen at festivals as well as early year releases that the precursors will surely forget, sadly. I don’t have any titles that I’m embargoed on right now, so this is as close to an exhaustive look at everything that’s hit screens between January 1st and today as possible. »

Did Taylor Swift Shade Some of Her Famous Friends in the "Lwymmd" Video?

28 August 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

The video for Taylor Swift's new single, "Look What You Made Me Do," premiered during the MTV VMAs on Sunday night. The visual was packed with hidden references to Taylor's ex-lovers, celebrity feuds, and past personas - and during one scene, it appears that she may have taken a swipe at a few of her (former?) famous friends. RelatedTaylor Swift Spoke to My Soul, Until I Grew Up - and She Didn't Taylor's group of high-profile girlfriends - her "squad," if you will - has gotten a lot of attention and criticism over the years; many have brought up the fact that they all look similar (something the singer alluded to in the "Lwymmd" video) and question whether Taylor's seemingly revolving door of friendships is even real. Taylor addressed the backlash in a 2016 Vogue interview, calling the accusations "hurtful" and adding, "When we're all friends in fifteen years and raising our kids together, »

All the Stars Still in Taylor Swift’s Squad According to Her ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ Music Video

27 August 2017 9:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The old Taylor Swift may be dead, but it seems her squad is very much still alive.

On Sunday, the 27-year-old singer dropped the music video for her new single, “Look What You Made Me Do.” And though the self-referential, Joseph Kahn-directed clip shows Swift dominating over and then destroying her followers at “Squad U” — a fictional factory where lines of identical women follow her rules — one clue in the video appears to give a clue that the pop star’s crew is still at it.

Doctor Who and tabloid rumours: when have they got it right?

23 August 2017 1:58 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Aug 24, 2017

When have tabloid rumours been spot on about Doctor Who, and when have they been, er, less accurate?

“Look Who's the Doc's new assistant!” On Tuesday, the Mirror's front page trumpeted an exclusive reveal that Bradley Walsh would be Jodie Whittaker's companion in the new series of Doctor Who.

See related  Game Of Thrones season 7 episode 6 questions answered Game Of Thrones season 7 episode 7 review: The Dragon And The Wolf

The one-time Sarah Jane Adventures guest star would be the first companion actor to have hosted a quiz show with the same name as a 1960s serial, but beyond trivia, the report has been fairly well received as far as we can see – Walsh is a decent actor, who's worked with incoming executive producer Chris Chibnall before on Law & Order UK, and a fun screen presence. But given the source, might it all be a load of bobbins? »
