Amy Adams To Join Nanjiani and Ruffalo In ‘The True American’ From Director Pablo Larrain

Amy Adams To Join Nanjiani and Ruffalo In ‘The True American’ From Director Pablo Larrain
The last time we saw Amy Adams on the big screen was in last year’s “Justice League” film. Even though we’re only two years removed from her roles in “Arrival” and “Nocturnal Animals,” it’s time for Amy Adams to get that “Justice League” stink off her. And it looks like she’s ready to do that with the upcoming film, “The True American.”

According to Variety, Amy Adams is in negotiations to make “The True American” her next project.

Pablo Larrain’s ‘The True American’ Talks Are With Amazon, Not Annapurna

After holding a story about the construction of a package for Pablo Larrain’s The True American, I am dubious about a story I just read that Annapurna is making this film, which does have Amy Adams and Mark Ruffalo poised to star. My sources say that Annapurna exited the financing scenario, but that doesn’t mean the picture won’t happen. The conversation right now is with Amazon Studios, and signs are looking good to keep the picture on track for a spring production…

Amy Adams in Talks to Star in Annapurna’s ‘True American’ (Exclusive)
Updated: Amy Adams is in talks to star in the upcoming Annapurna Pictures drama “The True American,” sources tell Variety.

Sources tell Variety that Annapurna is still a producer, but will no longer finance the movie. It’s in talks with Amazon Studios to take over financing and distribution.

Insiders close to the situation say a deal has not yet closed and scheduling is still being worked out, specifically regarding her promotion efforts on her upcoming HBO limited series “Sharp Objects,” but that Adams wants this as her next film project. Adams is also a producer on “Sharp Objects” and considers the project a high priority, making her promotion on the HBO project a bigger commitment than a usual tour.

Annapurna could not be reached for comment.

Jackie” helmer Pablo Larrain is on board to direct, and Mark Ruffalo and Kumail Nanjiani are also in talks to co-star with Adams.

Amy Adams Joining Mark Ruffalo & Kumail Nanjiani for True American

Five-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams is in talks to join Kumail Nanjiani and Mark Ruffalo in the post-9/11 drama The True American. Pablo Larrain (Jackie) will direct the film, based on the non-fiction book by Anand Giridharadas. Tom Hardy was originally tapped to star, but instead he will next play Al Capone in Josh Trank’s Fonzo.

The True American tells the true story of Rais Bhuiyan, a Bangladeshi immigrant working in a Texas convenience store, who narrowly escaped death in a killing spree perpetrated by white supremacist Mark Stroman as revenge for the 9/11 attacks.

Justice League finishes its box office run as the lowest-grossing Dceu movie

Now that Justice League has arrived on Blu-ray [read our review here], Warner Bros.’ big DC blockbuster has officially finished up global theatrical run, and the financials don’t make for good reading for the studio and DC Films.

In total, Justice League grossed $657.9 million around the world – a sum that leaves it some $10 million shy of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, and the lowest grossing DC Extended Universe movie to date.

Here’s how the Dceu stacks up in terms of box office:

Batman v Superman – $873.6M Wonder Woman – $821.8M Suicide Squad – $746.8M Man of Steel – $668.M Justice League – $657.9M

Regardless of whether you’re a fan of Justice League or not, it’s impossible to argue that this box office performance is anything but a major disappointment, and it’s completely understandable why it has led to a major shake-up within DC Films.

According to rumours, Justice League cost Warner Bros.

Zack Snyder teases Justice League deleted scene with new image of the heroes at Superman’s grave

A few days ago Zack Snyder gave us a glimpse at some of the deleted scenes from his cut of Justice League with a series of black and white photographs, and now the director has shared another, this time featuring Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) standing alongside Superman’s coffin.

Based on the above image, we can assume that the scene we got in the final movie with Barry and Vic digging up Superman’s grave was added as part of Joss Whedon’s changes to the movie. As for why the change, we’ll likely never know. Perhaps Whedon thought it best that only two members of the Justice League commit grave robbery, rather than four..?

Blu-ray Review – Justice League (2017)

Justice League, 2017.

Directed by Zack Snyder.

Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Ciarán Hinds, Diane Lane, Amber Heard, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Billy Crudup, J.K. Simmons, Kiersey Clemons and Jeremy Irons.


After the death of Superman, Batman has to assemble a team of superheroes to combat a powerful alien threat. Joined by Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg, they must put aside their differences to save the world from Steppenwolf.

As the culmination of Warner Bros.’ efforts to create a DC cinematic universe, Justice League should have been much more that it turned out to be. Due to extenuating circumstances such as WB’s interference in the production process and the tragedy Zack Snyder and his family went through last year, as well as WB’s decision to have Joss Whedon rewrite and reshoot a good portion of the film,

Jesse Eisenberg says no Lex Luthor scenes were cut from Justice League, unsure if and when he’ll return as the character

Given that there’s be no word whatsoever about a possible extended or alternative cut of Justice League, it seems we may never know for sure exactly what Zack Snyder had in mind for the DC blockbuster prior to his exit. However, it seems one thing we can rule out is that earlier cuts featured any more of Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor.

Speaking to Variety about whether he was meant to have a larger role in the DC ensemble, Eisenberg responded: “No. I was in it after the credits. No. Actually, on the contrary, they added some stuff.”

Eiesenberg was only in one single scene, where Luthor met with Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke, so presumably when he says “they added some stuff”, he’s referring to Zack Snyder adding in the post credits scene during the initial production (Snyder shared a photo of himself working on the storyboards for

Year in Advance Academy Award predictions for 2019

There’s no rest for the weary. As the Oscar winning film Crazy Heart once said in its signature song, “this ain’t no place for the weary kind”. Yes, less than a week after the 90th Academy Awards, I’m already bringing you year in advance predictions. Almost exactly a year ago, I did this (as you’ll also see below, but more on that in a bit), so that’s sort of what you do in early March when the most recent show is in the rearview mirror and you need something to look forward to. Plus, it’s just plain fun. This is always a pleasure, and good for a laugh a year later, if nothing else. At this early juncture, it’s all guesswork, but some potential contenders do stick out to me. The ones prominently mentioned below include Damien Chazelle’s La La Land follow up First Man,

Ray Fisher and Ezra Miller on working with Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon on Justice League

As Warner Bros. and DC Films continue to plot out their post-Justice League plans in the wake of the disappointing box office returns for the superhero ensemble, stars Ray Fisher and Ezra Miller have been chatting to Screen Geek about their experience on the movie, and in particular the directorial shake-up which saw Joss Whedon coming in as a replacement for Zack Snyder.

“With two directors, we had a bit of a tough time with Zack having to step away from the project, and I think we all owe him a great bit of gratitude for bringing us into his version of the Justice League.” said Fisher. “At the end of the day, the best way to honor him in that sort of way is to do what you have to do and put your best foot forward no matter who is at the helm.

‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ Actress Cailee Spaeny on Getting the Role, Working With John Boyega

‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ Actress Cailee Spaeny on Getting the Role, Working With John Boyega
Cailee Spaeny found her passion for performance from singing in church and in a rock band. Each summer, for four years, she and her family would drive for three days from Missouri to

Los Angeles to go on theatrical auditions. The hard work and sacrifice paid off: Spaeny is featured in the upcoming film “Pacific Rim: Uprising,” starring John Boyega and Scott Eastwood.

What were those car rides like?

We’d drive from Missouri to Oklahoma to Texas to New Mexico to Nevada, and then California. We couch-hopped, and one time we stayed for four months in a small room with a random family that we met at a church — my two younger siblings, myself and my mom. One time we stayed in a $40 hotel, and we all thought we were going to die. My dad would stay home and make money and send it to us while we were out there.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice concept art shows unused Metallo design

In addition to battling each other, The World’s Finest saw themselves taking on Lex Luthor, Doomsday and KGBeast in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it seems we could have had another classic Superman adversary in the movie.

Via Batman-News, some concept art from illustrator Rob McKinnon has arrived online showing a design for the kryptonite-powered cyborg Metallo:

You may recall that way back in 2013, a rumour emerged claiming that Metallo would be the main antagonist in Batman v Superman, and as the above concept art shows, he was certainly considered at one point or another.

Let us know what you make of the Metallo design, and if you’d like to see him featuring in a future Dceu movie…

‘Annihilation’: Alex Garland’s trippy sci-fi film could be remembered at Oscar time just like his last one, ‘Ex Machina’

‘Annihilation’: Alex Garland’s trippy sci-fi film could be remembered at Oscar time just like his last one, ‘Ex Machina’
Could “Annihilation” be an early contender for the 2019 Oscars? The mind-bending sci-fi film, about a team of scientists who investigate a strange energy field known as “the Shimmer,” was acclaimed when it opened on February 23, but will it be remembered by awards voters in a few months? “Get Out” proved it’s possible: it was a February 2017 release that earned a Best Picture nomination and won Best Original Screenplay more than a year after it opened. Or for another example you could just look at “Annihilation” director Alex Garland‘s last Oscar winning film, “Ex Machina.”

Ex Machina” was Garland’s directorial debut. It was released in April 2015 and starred Oscar Isaac as a scientist who created a sentient android (Alicia Vikander). Its unsettling tone, sci-fi subject matter and spring release date didn’t indicate a likely Oscar contender. But critics championed it (78 on MetaCritic, 92% freshness on Rotten Tomatoes), and
