The God Of Thunder Prepares To Step Into The Ring In Latest Thor: Ragnarok Image

12 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As the dust begins to settle from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and James Gunn and Co. quietly begin to compose the third volume in their rip-roaring space opera, all eyes are beginning to turn toward Spider-Man: Homecoming.

It’s the second of three Marvel movies poised to debut in 2017, and it’ll herald the first full-length picture featuring Tom Holland in that iconic suit – if the so-hot-right-now British star turned heads and raised eyebrows in Civil War, just wait until you see what Marvel and director Jon Watts have in store for Homecoming.

Rounding out the studio’s 2017 slate, however, is Thor: Ragnarok. Slotting into a similar release window as Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange – for the record, the mystical origin story went on to become Marvel’s biggest single-character launch, financially speaking – Taika Waititi’s galactic threequel will have the God of Thunder embark on his craziest adventure yet. »

Reel TV: 'Doctor Strange' Director Finds 'Snowpiercer,' First 'Star Trek: Discovery' Image and More

17 May 2017 5:15 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Snowpiercer Recruits Doctor Strange Director Way back on November 12, 2015 we mentioned in a news roundup that the Korean sci-fi movie Snowpiercer was getting a TV adaptation. Coincidentally, above that bite in the same post was a bit of small casting news for Doctor Strange. We say coincidentally because news has just hit that Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson will be directing the Snowpiercer pilot episode and executive producing the series. That's not the only Snowpiercer news, either. Hamilton breakout actor Daveed Diggs is set to star in the series. He'll play a prisoner enduring the harsh conditions aboard a train that endlessly circles the Earth. Said prisoner ends up being a key figure in a resistance movement swelling aboard the train, threatening to...

Scott Derrickson Will Direct TNT’s ‘Snowpiercer’, Which Will Star ‘Hamilton’ Actor Daveed Diggs

17 May 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

For me, TNT has always been the channel I turn to when nothing else is on and I’m looking for a familiar film to serve as background noise. I mean, how many times can one network possibly air The Shawshank Redemption? My guess is they’ve set the record, and second place isn’t even close. The network has had its […]

Daveed Diggs Reserves A Seat Aboard TNT’s Snowpiercer Series

17 May 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s no secret that Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer hurtled through one piece of red tape after another in its journey to theaters three years ago. Much of that drama can be traced back to a disagreement between the movie’s domestic distributors, The Weinstein Company, and the illustrious South Korean filmmaker with regards to which cut would screen in the U.S.

But even after such a torrid, frustrating saga, Snowpiercer still managed to achieve cult status, along with a wave of glowing reviews, upon opening Stateside, and that legacy will soon live on through TNT’s upcoming adaptation of the chilling, apocalyptic thriller. Doctor Strange helmer Scott Derrickson has signed on to direct the network’s hour-long Snowpiercer pilot, and is expected to serve as executive producer should the spinoff get picked up to series.

It seems the wheels are finally beginning to ache into motion, too, what »

Now, the creative team is assembling, and it’s certainly intriguing.

“Hamilton” star Daveed Diggs will take a leading role as Layton Well, a prisoner struck in the back-end of the class-divided train that contains the remnants of human civilization.

Powers Boothe, Star of Tombstone, Deadwood Dies at 68

15 May 2017 9:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Hollywood community is in mourning once again after another beloved performer was lost this weekend. Powers Boothe, an Emmy-winning character actor with several diverse roles to his credit, passed away at the age of 68 on Sunday. The actor's death was first announced online in a tweet from actor Beau Bridges, and was later confirmed by his rep, Karen Samfilippo. The rep confirmed that he died in his sleep from apparent natural causes.

The Entertainment Weekly report doesn't reveal if there will be an autopsy performed or not. The actor was born June 1, 1948 in Snyder, Texas, USA, the son of a sharecropper who spent his youth chopping cotton and became the first member of his family to attend a university, receiving a fellowship to Southern Methodist University to study acting, where he received a degree in Fine Arts.

Star Wars 8 and Doctor Strange Directors Get in Heated Twitter Argument

11 May 2017 2:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Rian Johnson, the man behind this Christmas's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson had some good old-fashioned Twitter beef last night. The directors got into an argument about personal preference in the art of making movies. Which is a rally that should probably be saved for an in-person debate, not over social media. But that's not what happened as both directors traded barbs on Twitter to an audience of roughly 400,000 followers. It all started when Derrickson took to his Twitter account to declare this opinion.

"Cinema is emotion over technique. If you want technique paint a picture or even write a book. People go to the movies to be moved."

Scott Derrickson's declaration may be more than a little pretentious, but it is his opinion. Rian Johnson, who clearly disagrees with this statement responds with a simple "What," like he can't believe what he just read. »

Hulu gives pilot order to Locke & Key, Scott Derrickson to direct

23 April 2017 2:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year it was announced that Idw Entertainment were developing a small screen adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s acclaimed comic book series Locke & Key, and now comes word that Hulu has officially placed a pilot order, with Carlton Cuse (Lost) set to executive produce and showrun and Scott Derrickson (Doctor Strange) directing.

Locke & Key tells of Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion, with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them… and home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all!

“I love this story,” said Hill during last year’s announcement. “The seven years I spent working on Locke & Key was the happiest creative experience of my life and there still isn’t a day when I don’t think about those characters and miss visiting with them. The six »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe May Never Be The Same Again After Avengers: Infinity War

21 April 2017 5:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel will bring an end to a story which began back in 2008’s Iron Man. It was there that Tony Stark was recruited into the ranks of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, while Joss Whedon and The Avengers introduced us to Thanos just four years later. Those movies also kicked off and concluded Phase 1, and since then, films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been divided into Phases. That could be about to change, though.

During a recent interview, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed that when it comes to Phase 4, things are pretty up in the air right now, with only two films being a certainty at this point.

“Truthfully, other than knowing that we’re going to work with Sony on another Spider-Man film for that year and that James [Gunn] is committed to continuing with the Guardians at some point, it’s all about Phase Three. »

Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase 4 May Not Be Phase 4, But A ‘New Thing’

21 April 2017 4:45 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has had a pretty solid run so far. There have been over a dozen films, and on there slate are eight or so more coming our way. Whether or not you actually like the films, there is no denying that Marvel Studios brought about an entirely new trend in filmmaking when it executed its cinematic universe. Since then, other studios such as Warner Bros and Legendary have started making more shared universes of their own, but none are anywhere near as far along as Marvel.

Their first phase consisted of six films, as did Phase 2. Phase 3 currently consists of a whopping ten films, including two Avengers movies — and that’s not even counting Captain America: Civil War, which had more Avengers in it than either Avengers film thus up to that point. Needless to say, the keep ramping up the scope of each phase.

Doctor Strange 2: Scott Derrickson Expected To Return To Helm Sequel?

21 April 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Late last year, audiences were introduced to the world of Doctor Strange. It was seen as a bit of a risk for Marvel. In fact, whenever Marvel leaves the cozy confines of the standard world-based universe, we wonder if they’re able to pull it off. Luckily for us, they were. The film was a whole lot of fun (even if it was your typical origin story), and Benedict Cumberbatch was deemed a great fit for the egocentric doctor.

Doctor Strange ended up grossing over $675 million worldwide, a commendable achievement for a brand new franchise. While Marvel Studios still has a full slate on their hands between now and the end of 2019, there’s always room for a sequel down the line, especially if the film is as good as the first one. But, of course, as has been proven, even if Marvel decides to make a sequel, they don »
