His filmography speaks for itself. His friendship was a blessing. My love to Bunny, James and Lydia.”

Lowe continued by encouraging fans to watch his work »

Oscar Political Moments: A Timeline of the Memorable Sacrifices, Protests, and Speeches Throughout The Telecast’s History

17 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Filmmakers and stars have often taken a political stance by choosing which projects to make. But when the Academy Awards ceremony began in 1929 to honor the best in film, this created a more public way to demonstrate opinions about the state of the world, the government or a cause.

Not everyone has taken this opportunity though, except for maybe wearing the odd ribbon to support awareness or using their attendance (or lack thereof) to show solidarity. Those blessed by winning a coveted statuette, however, can use their actual acceptance speech as a platform to speak out. Although the awards started being televised in 1953, it took until the 1970s until winners began to really take advantage of having a massive audience for their views. And at times, even the Academy itself got political. »

Simon Kinberg Teases Mister Sinister Appearance In Future X-Men Movies

25 February 2017 4:50 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Logan is very much its own film. That’s not to say it’s completely disconnected from the wider X-Men cinematic universe, but for the most part, it’s a standalone experience, one which thankfully isn’t tied down by having to plant seeds for future entries in the series or explain events that have already occurred. There are small connections here and there though, one of which is related to Essex Corp and Mister Sinister.

In the post-credits scene for X-Men: Apocalypse, which you can see above, the iconic villain was briefly teased and after having been rumored to be appearing in the franchise for a while now, many thought we’d finally get to meet him in Logan. It’s not a spoiler to say that doesn’t happen, but there still is a small string attaching him to the events in James Mangold’s film. We’re talking about X-23, of course. »

It's Morphin Time in New Power Rangers International Trailer

24 February 2017 3:45 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In exactly one month, Lionsgate will unleash their new Power Rangers reboot in theaters, which is shaping up to be one of this spring's early blockbusters. To get fans ready for "morphin' time," Lionsgate has released an international trailer, which includes new footage of the villainous Rita Repulsa. It remains to be seen how much more footage will be released between now and the March 24 release date, but we'll most likely be seeing a few more clips in the days and weeks ahead.

This trailer, which surfaced on YouTube, comes just one week after the Power Rangers final trailer surfaced, with most of the footage here coming from that sneak peek. The new Rita Repulsa scene gives fans a better grasp on how powerful she truly is, and we also get to see how huge Goldar really is.

Prepare For A Mighty Morphin’ Origin Story With The International Trailer For Power Rangers

24 February 2017 9:26 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

On the Hollywood calendar, January and February are often relatively quiet months as the Powers That Be brace for annual award shows such as the Golden Globes and the Oscars. But as we inch closer to March, we’re beginning to see a marked uptick in new releases, and soon moviegoers will be bidding adieu to Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine via Logan. It’s 2017’s second R-rated movie to be lauded with critical acclaim at launch – John Wick: Chapter 2 being the first – but there’s another high-profile tentpole looming on the horizon, and it’s literally worlds away from mutant dystopias and well-tailored assassins.

We are, of course, referring to Power RangersDean Israelite’s (Project Almanac) lavish reboot that takes the core elements of Saban’s color-coded heroes, slaps on a new lick of paint, and catapults them toward the silver screen. Headed up by soon-to-be Stranger Things »

Zach Galifianakis Won’t Leave James Corden Alone in This ‘Late Late Show’ Sketch — Watch

23 February 2017 1:56 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

James Corden might want to rethink inviting Zach Galifianakis to come back to “The Late Late Show.” Galifianakis was a guest on the “Late Late Show” last week along with Laura Dern, where he was promoting the new season of “Baskets.” The interview, just as any typical late-night interview, ended with a polite invitation for Galifianakis to return anytime.  Normally, a guest would assume that Corden meant “come back as a guest.” But Zach Galifianakis takes these invitations very seriously, as demonstrated by the skit below.

Why Everyone Is Freaking Out Over the New Power Rangers Trailer

23 February 2017 10:50 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

In the age of reboots, it's hard to tell the gems from the trash. The original trailer for Power Rangers introduced a new class of teenage fighters played by Naomi Scott (Pink), Becky G (Yellow), Ludi Lin (Black), Rj Cyler (Blue), and Dacre Montgomery (Red). The latest teaser not only provides a peek at Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa - who looked crazy-cool on the set - Bryan Cranston as Zordon, and Bill Hader as the voice of Alpha 5, but also includes a reference to Iron Man and Spider-Man! Why are our geek brains so happy right now? The movie will be out March 24.

23 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's almost Morphin Time! The all-new Power Rangers will be invading movie theaters in less than a month, and Lionsgate is probably more excited about unleashing these teenage heroes than you are to watch the actual movie. Case in point, they have just release a ton of new posters featuring these super powered Millennials. And we get a good look at their Zords. The main poster in this latest batch even unmasks the Red Ranger, played by Dacre Montgomery.

Godzilla 2 Gets Kyle Chandler as Millie Bobby Brown's Dad

21 February 2017 5:10 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Less than a month after Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown joined the cast of Warner Bros. and Legendary's sequel Godzilla: King of Monsters, another Netflix star has come aboard. Kyle Chandler, who stars in the streaming service's hit drama series Bloodline, has signed on to play the father of Millie Bobby Brown's character. No details have been given for this father-daughter duo quite yet, but we could learn more soon since production will begin in the next few months.

Variety broke the news of this casting, along with the news that several of the original Godzilla stars such as Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson will not be back for this sequel, although Ken Watanabe is expected to reprise his role as scientist Ishiro Serizawa. His inclusion does make sense, since he is part of the Monarch organization, which is also featured in the upcoming Kong: Skull Island »

Jennifer Garner Joins Nick Robinson’s ‘Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda’

21 February 2017 5:08 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jennifer Garner is in final talks to join the cast of Nick Robinson’s coming-of-age film “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda” for Fox 2000.

The studio began developing “Simon” in October after it picked up movie rights to Becky Albertalli’s 2015 book about a gay teen who has not come out to his classmates. When an email he sends to a boy (that he’s never met) falls into the wrong hands, he finds himself in a complicated situation when he’s blackmailed by the class clown.

Greg Berlanti, one of the architects of DC’s television universe, is attached to direct from a script by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger. Fox-based Temple Hill, which has produced the “Twilight” and “Maze Runner” franchises along with “The Fault in Our Stars,” is producing “Simon” along with Pouya Shahbazian’s New Leaf Literary & Media.

It’s a Netflix reunion of sorts: Kyle Chandler, star of “Bloodline,” is set to join “Stranger Things” break-out Millie Bobby Brown in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, sources tell Variety.

Chandler will play Brown’s father in the Legendary sequel.
