Peter Capaldi has made 'Doctor Who' ''spooky'' again. The 'In the Loop' star is the latest actor to take on the infamous role of the titular Time Lord in the BBC One sci-fi series and has said he wanted to make the Doctor ''mysterious'' and ''spooky'' - like the Doctor from his childhood. Speaking on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2, he said: ''I always thought when I grew up, Doctor Who was a slightly spooky, weird character who would arrive out of no-where and take people off deep in to space and give them terrible, terrifying adventures.'' The 56-year-old »
By now, we've seen a lot of celebrities doing the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, but, according to Chris Evans, most of them have not been doing it properly. The Captain America star did his own challenge on Thursday, but not before he clarified that he would be doing the stunt the right way, using actual ice water (he's on to you, fakers) and skipping the shirtlessness or tight white t-shirt portion for something a bit more befitting of a charity cause. While we don't get to see those rippling superhero pecs drenched in water, we do think that Chris did knock it out of the park with this one. Watch it above, and don't forget to check out the best Ice Bucket Challenges so far. »

Montreal World Festival
Celebrating its 38th year with a distinctly Gallic flavor, Mwff will open with “We Love You, You Bastard,” from French director — and longtime festival supporter — Claude Lelouch. Montreal closes with a tribute to another French legend, the late Alain Resnais and his last film, “Life of Riley.” But it’s not all France all the time. The fest is dedicated to the late Latin American literary icon, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and will be developing the new European Films Screening section, along with greater co-production ties with a large Chinese delegation of key industry players.

Telluride Film Festival
Telluride has always been an intimate, casual, carefully curated festival that doesn’t announce its sked until the day before it begins. The festival’s reputation — it has hosted several Oscar winners and nominees over the years — means that cinema lovers don’t mind going in blind. »

It seems as if the 2014 Toronto Film Festival lineup is more or less set. I'm not expecting any major additions after today's announcement and have taken another look at my current list of most likely films I'll be screening while in town, though this is largely based on title and director alone as I have yet to really dig into the titles unfamiliar to me so it's possible a few may find their way into the mix once all is said and done. That said, if you think there are some I'm missing please let me know... don't want to overlook anything. Note, I will be in Toronto from September 3-10 and expect I'll see about 18 movies maximum while I'm there. Right now the full list below is 48 movies not including the four I've already seen (but have yet to review) and the one I don't think I'll even have a chance to see. »

Yesterday marked the first day of principal photography for Ant-Man. If I’m to be honest, I’m still a bit bummed that Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish have left the project. I think their take on the Marvel Universe could have been one akin to James Gunn’s approach to Guardians of the Galaxy. Alas, we are still getting an Ant-Man film and the casting is pretty great. We also have a look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang Aka Ant-Man.
From the Press Release

The nominations are never-ending! Thanks to his Avengers: Age of Ultron co-star Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth accepted the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, which raises awareness for Lou Gehrig's disease. "I didn't do it within 24 hours, so I'll donate some money as well, and everyone should get involved," he said Monday. After ice water was dumped over his head, the Australian actor said, "That's rather cold. It's a little bit refreshing actually."

"First of all, I don't know what I'm allowed to say, but usually they call me in if they need something explained. »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe of course takes inspiration from the same-named comic book empire. That’s why word from Marvel that Sam Wilson, typically the Falcon, would pick up the mantle of Captain America in an upcoming storyline got a lot of people buzzing that Captain America 3 might follow suit. Although, that’s not the case, screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who previously penned The Winter Soldier, assure us.
Though the comic books featured various characters taking on the identity of Captain America, Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers is safe for the mean time. When asked about the possibility of Falcon (Anthony Mackie in The Winter Soldier) becoming Captain America, McFeely said:
“We tend to stay on the sidelines when it comes to the comics. We wait and see what we’ll steal from in three or four years from now! [laughs].”
In other words, though he’s not ruling out the possibility, »

How does Scarlett Johansson beat the heat? With an ice cream cone, of course. The pregnant Lucy actress satisfied her pregnancy craving before a movie date with fiancé Romain Dauriac on Sunday. The 29-year-old mom-to-be looked casual, chic and comfortable while wearing a chambray shirt, leggings, sneakers and sunglasses as she and Dauriac strolled through New York City. Johansson hasn't spoken publicly about her pregnancy—but her baby bump speaks for itself. In fact, Johansson had to hide her new curves while filming Avengers: Age of Ultron. To accommodate her pregnancy, three stunt doubles were hired to stand in for the actress. "It's always funny," said co-star Chris Evans, who »
Good news, Netflix’s very funny looking original animated show BoJack Horseman featuring the voices of Will Arnett, Aaron Paul and Alison Brie will appear on Netflix on Friday 22nd August just in time to binge watch over the bank holiday weekend.
From what I have seen so far it looks promising but then so did Hemlock Grove. Expect a full report next week. In related news, Netflix have announced a whole slate of stand-up comedy exclusive to its service after the success of the recent Aziz Ansari special. So the likes of Chelsea Handler, Jim Jefferies, Bill Cosby, Bill Burr and Chelsea Peretti will be adding stand up shows to streaming between now and December. I have only heard of a couple of these acts but there again one of the best things to do with an hour to spare is browse Netflix for its plentiful supply of stand-up »

The ensemble cast put together by Joss Whedon for The Avengers: Age of Ultron really borders on the ridiculous at this point. Not only is the movie bringing back the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Cobie Smulders back from the first Avengers, now the gang is going to include James Spader, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Don Cheadle and Paul Bettany as well (Bettany getting an upgrade from voice-over performance to a live-action role). Really, though, that is just a list of the actors that we know about. We can probably expect a few surprise appearances from other established supporting characters as well. For example... Speaking with Total Film (via Cbm), Stellan Skarsgard revealed that he will be making his fourth Marvel movie appearance with a part in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. The news »
Given that fact that most of the images appear to be references to previously released images of the Avengers, I doubt that this guy actually has the trailer and made storyboards to closely resemble the footage. Nevertheless, it gives you a much better idea of the trailer. Did you enjoy the fanmade storyboards? Did it give you a better idea of the exclusive trailer you missed or did it only pour salt on the wound which desires the actual trailer? Leave a comment below and let us know. Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Cobie Smulders Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, with Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, and James Spader. The film is set for release on May 1, 2015. »
In an interview with Total Film (via ComicBookMovie), Stellan Skarsgård has revealed that he will return as Dr. Erik Selvig in Avengers: Age of Ultron. That marks Skarsgård’s fourth appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the interview, the Swedish actor talked about first playing the character in Thor, and admitted to knowing very little about the Marvel universe before signing on…
“What I said to Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel, was, ‘All those superheroes? Still in those comic books? Can you make money out of that?’ The whole table just froze and looked at me as if I was an idiot. But you sign on for at least five films, I think. Or I did. I’m going to do my fourth. I’m going to be in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, a small appearance. It’s something really nice. Even if it’s owned by Disney now, »

Avengers: Age of Ultron is promising quite a line-up of characters, as it has been revealed that even Stellan Skarsgard will be back as Dr. Erik Selvig, and the actor promises that he'll once again be naked.
Dr. Erik Selvig is a character created for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, an old colleague of Jane Foster's father who first debuted in 2011's Thor. He went onto play an important role in 2012's Marvel's The Avengers, but made the biggest impression when he was asked to run naked in Thor: The Dark World. It sounds like the actor will once again be stripping down to nothing, this time for director Joss Whedon.
"Yeah, I was naked again. They called my agent and said, 'Do you think Stellan will mind being naked?' My agent laughed his head off. Yeah, I almost insist! Sometimes with a contract you get a nudity clause, which is fantastic. »
