'Scuse us while we clutch our pearls over here, because daaamn, grandmas! Elite Daily blessedly decided to round up some grandmothers and let them play a game of "F--k, Marry, Kill" with celebs, rappers, serial killers (obvs) and more.

13 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The directorial debut from acclaimed playwright Debbie Tucker Green, Second Coming hits our shores this Friday, June 5th, after a very good showing on the festival circuit.

Keeping it a secret from her family, Jackie’s sanity starts to crumble as this seemingly immaculate conception begins to take a toll on her life. »

Idris Elba Raps About Stringer on Skepta’s ‘Shutdown’ Remix

17 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Every now and then Idris Elba likes to pretend he's a rapper. It's usually best to ignore him when he tries, but his latest attempt is actually quite fun. Elba has admittedly caught on late to the U.K.'s grime revival, but earlier this year he fanboyed hard to Sketpa's banger "Shutdown" after he saw the rapper onstage with Kanye West during his blazing BRITs performance. Elba practically begged Skepta on Twitter to put him on the song's remix, and now his dreams have come true. Here he is dropping Stringer Bell references and acknowledging that he's only "acting like he's rapping." We forgive you, Idris. »

‘True Detective’ helmer out as ‘It’ director after budget cuts, clash with studio

26 May 2015 1:35 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It seems like the director of True Detective is moving on from yet another project.

The Wrap reported on Monday that Cary Fukunaga, known for directing the entire first season of the acclaimed HBO crime series, is out as the director of an adaptation of author Stephen King’s It. The film was supposed to begin production this summer, and has been pushed back indefinitely.

According to the site, Fukunaga repeatedly clashed with the studio and did not want to compromise his artistic vision in the wake of budget cuts that were recently demanded by New Line, which greenlit the first film at $30 million. The situation came to a head over Memorial Day weekend, leading to Fukunaga’s abrupt exit from the ambitious project.

Another source added that New Line was getting cold feet about the project in the wake of the less-than-stellar opening of Poltergeist, which featured a clown in its marketing materials. »

Suicide Squad movie: Everything you need to know about the members, cast, release date and more

20 May 2015 5:55 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

With filming now well under way on Warner Bros and DC Comics' Suicide Squad movie, it seems like the perfect time to cast an eye over the lesser-known members of the world of Batman and Superman.

Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Cara Delevingne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis and Jai Courtney lead the cast of the superhero film.

Suicide Squad is scheduled for release on August 5, 2016.

What we've seen so far

The movie has attracted a lot of attention as images of the Suicide Squad's members in costume began to roll out.

Leto showed off his new muscles, which everyone seemed to be fine with.

What fans have been less keen on is the photo of his tattooed and be-grilled Joker.

Despite suggestions that this was a concept that wouldn't show up in the film itself, shots from the set have dashed these hopes to pieces. »

Our second look at 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' digs deeper into the film's flaws

19 May 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

During the heyday of "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," I was an active advocate for studios to pick up on the wonder that was Joss Whedon. Watching "Avengers: Age Of Ultron," it feels like that is exactly what we were asking for when we asked for him to be in charge of our pop culture. And I mean that in both positive and negative ways. Joss Whedon has a great ear for clever dialogue, and that can be a wee bit of a curse. There is something about the way he writes that can make it feel like he's afraid to fully engage in some of the bigger emotion. When you're doing 22 episodes of a television series, you can take one episode to shift the tone to something darker, more somber, and it feels appropriate. In a 140 minute film, you can only find moments to downshift, and when it's surrounded by non-stop wisecracks, »

Exclusive – Damon Lindelof talks Star Trek 3 plot and Idris Elba for villain role

19 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To promote the release of his new movie Tomorrowland, writer Damon Lindelof (the man responsible for Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus) sat down with Flickering Myth’s Oli Davis, where they proceeded to talk about his new movie, but also the new Star Trek 3 film.

Lindelof produced the first two films in the relaunched franchise, writing the second instalment, but working on Tomorrowland and his HBO TV show The Leftovers meant he had to step away from the third. In the interview, Lindelof talks about what he knows of Star Trek 3’s story so far:

“It’s really about the beginning of the five year mission. It’s establishing the crew after they’ve been out there and together for a while. But I don’t know anything about the plot.”

Which is…pretty much what everyone expected, seeing how Star Trek Into Darkness ends with »

Exclusive – Damon Lindelof: Working on Star Wars would be “a dream come true”

19 May 2015 4:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To promote the release of his new movie Tomorrowland, writer Damon Lindelof (the man responsible for Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus) sat down with Flickering Myth’s Oli Davis, where they proceeded to talk about his new movie, but also the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Trek 3 movies. Because they’re both pretty geeky (and one of them is best buds with Star Wars director J.J. Abrams).

While getting excited about the impending return of Luke, Leia and Han, Lindelof spoke about whether he would ever take on a Star Wars movie down the line:

“Obviously Star Wars really made me want to be a filmmaker, so the possibility that I could work on one of those films in the future would be truly a dream come true.”

What I Watched, What You Watched #296

17 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I haven't watched as much television as I watched this week in a long, long, long time. Out of nowhere I received the upcoming release of all five seasons of "The Wire" on Blu-ray (buy it here) and I've been told for years how great this show is. Hell, the cover of the Blu-ray release has a quote calling it "The best show in the history of television". That's quite a claim. So, I got to watching. In fact, I watched the entire first season and all of the second season in the span of three days. I guess the question is, "Is this the best show in the history of televisionc" Obviously I still have five more seasons to watch, but I will admit I enjoyed the first season quite a bit, but the second season is a bit of a step backward. For starters, the Ziggy character was a bit of a nightmare, »
