It's kind of hard to believe it's 2015 and we are still having conversations about the lack of non-white characters in film and television. Last I checked a large fraction of the United States population is composed of non-white men and women. And yet black, Hispanic, Asian, and other racially diverse characters -- and women, too -- are largely shunted to minor roles, a practice that becomes strikingly obvious almost every time a major studio blockbuster hits the big screen. Yes, when it comes to comic books I think we all probably understand a lot of these characters are white men and women in their source material, that's wonderful, but that doesn't mean things can't change when their stories are adapted to the big screen. One such change was made for Fox's reboot of Fantastic Four, which sees Michael B. Jordan cast as Johnny Storm -- a.k.a. The Human »

Fantastic Four will arrive in UK cinemas on August 6 and in the Us on August 7.
We've got a whole new take on Marvel's First Family
In case it wasn't clear from the fresh faces of the cast (and the uniformly bad memories of the 2005 and 2007 films), this movie will reboot the franchise based on Marvel Comics' very first comic book series.
Chris Pratt, the biggest star of 2014 and the Michelangelo of Poop Pics, is one internet-savvy guy. After the series of unfortunate incidents that was The Avengers: Age of Ultron press tour, which included Robert Downey Jr. walking out of an interview (then pompously insulting indie films) and a weird, sexist bro moment courtesy of Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner (Evans apologized; Renner didn’t), Pratt has beaten the internet outrage machine to the punch: The Jurassic World star issued an apology for anything offensive he may say during his upcoming press tour. We forgive him already. »

Now playing in theaters is director Gil Kenan’s (Monster House) contemporary remake of the classic horror film Poltergeist. Produced by Sam Raimi, the redo stars Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt as parents trying to fend off a spiritual invasion and save their eight-year-old daughter (Kennedi Clements) from the evil forces trying to take her. The film also stars Jared Harris, Saxon Sharbino, Kyle Catlett, Susan Heyward and Nicholas Braun. While some might be nervous about the remake, I was actually surprised by how well it’s put together. However, it’s definitely aimed at a younger audience, and it’s important to know that going in. While I already posted the first part of my interview with Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt, it’s now time to watch them play “Save or Kill.” If you haven’t seen it yet, the game reveals which franchises, characters or bands someone »

Chris Pratt wants to make absolutely sure we know he's sorry - even if he hasn't said the thing he's apologising for saying yet.
The Jurassic World actor posted a statement on Facebook apologising for anything he might accidentally say during his press tour for the upcoming film.
"I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming Jurassic World press tour," the actor wrote. "I hope you understand it was never my intention to offend anyone and I am truly sorry. I swear. I'm the nicest guy in the world.
"When I do (potentially) commit the offensive act for which I am now (pre) apologising, you must understand I (will likely have been) tired and exhausted when I (potentially) said that thing I (will have had) said that (will have had) crossed the line."

Jessica Alba didn't exactly receive rave reviews for her performance in Fantastic Four and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, but the actress did impress in both Sin City and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For! Will she ever take on another comic book movie role? Marvel snapped up Chris Evans after he played Johnny Storm in the Fantastic Four movies, so it's certainly possible! Regardless, she looks amazing in this new photoshoot for Shape Magazine (via Movie Hotties). What do you guys think? »
Not everyone feels, well, fantastic about a black actor taking on the role of Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in the new "Fantastic Four" movie. In this re-imagining, Kate Mara plays Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Miles Teller is Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Jamie Bell is Ben Grimm/The Thing, and Michael B. Jordan is Johnny Storm, the role played by Chris Evans in the 2005 movie.
Since Johnny was originally written to be blond with blue eyes, some fans grumbled about the change to cast Michael B. Jordan. Jordan just wrote a piece for Entertainment Weekly, responding to comments like "A black guy? I don't like it. They must be doing it because Obama's president," "It's not true to the comic," and "They've destroyed it!"
Here's part of what Jordan wrote:

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War is currently filming in Atlanta, and it’s pretty much a free-for-all as far as set photos go. The sequence that’s underway began with Chris Evans’ Cap battling Frank Grillo’s Crossbones, but as the production has worn on, more and more actors have been showing up to set. Today’s new batch includes Paul Rudd (in his non-Ant-Man costume), Elizabeth Olsen (in her non-Avengers Scarlet Witch costume), and Anthony Mackie’s Falcon. Additionally, an official set photo was unveiled by Jeremy Renner whose Hawkeye gets in on the action, and the photo reveals the production logo for the highly anticipated Avengers movie Captain America sequel. So, if you feel so inclined, take a look at the latest batch of set photos from Captain America: Civil War below.

The latest commercial for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four may just be a promo for MovieTickets.com, but it also gives us our clearest look at both The Thing and Johnny Storm. It is interesting to note just how different the Human Torch appears in the new version and yet very much the same as we are used to. Yes, he is covered in flames like the version Chris Evans played, but the Michael B. Jordan iteration of the character looks to be on fire rather than made of it. There are a couple of new »

Chris Evans feels ''incredibly comfortable'' playing Captain America. The 33-year-old actor has confessed he was nervous when he first landed the role because he was worried comic book fans wouldn't accept him but now, having starred as the superhero in a number of films, he's comfortable enough to mix things up. Asked if it's easy to slip back into character, he said: ''Absolutely. When you first take on the role, it's intimidating, and you're scared the fans may not accept you. Now, I feel incredibly comfortable with it, and that's when you start trying to challenge the character and forge new territory.'' The 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' actor is set to appear alongside Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man in the next instalment in the Captain America franchise, 'Civil War', but insists his character - who is also named Steve Rogers - will still be the main focus. »
Yesterday was reportedly the last day that Captain America: Civil War will shoot on the African Market set, but some new details have surfaced about the action-packed sequence filmed on the location. We know from set photos and videos that Captain America (Chris Evans), the Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and maybe Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) are battling Crossbones (Frank Grillo) and his Hydra goons, but scroll down (with a potential spoiler warning) to find out when the sequence will take place and how important it is to the story, as well as how big of role the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) will have in the film. According to Lainey Gossip, who has been nonchalantly dropping some interesting tidbits about the Marvel Cinematic Universe for some time now, the aforementioned African Market sequence is actually the "first big action set piece of the movie [...] that »
At the recent Tomorrowland press day I landed an exclusive video interview with screenwriter Damon Lindelof. As most of you know. the film stars George Clooney as Frank, a disillusioned boy-genius who teams up with Casey (Britt Robertson), a curious and optimistic scientifically-inclined teenager, to discover the secrets of the enigmatic place known as “Tomorrowland”. The film also stars Hugh Laurie, Tim McGraw, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key, and Thomas Robinson and was written by Lindelof and Brad Bird, from a story by Lindelof & Bird & Jeff Jensen. While I’ll be posting what Lindelof had to say about the making of Tomorrowland on Friday, today I wanted to let you watch him play “Save or Kill.” If you haven’t seen it yet, the game reveals which franchises, characters or bands someone would choose when pitted against another of equal value.

Another day, another slew of behind-the-scenes photos to pick through. With yesterday serving up a barrage of stills for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, today sees the pendulum swing back in Marvel’s favor and, specifically, Captain America: Civil War. We’ve already see the First Avenger engage in fisticuffs with Frank Grillo’s Crossbones, but this latest selection turns the attention to some of the film’s supporting characters: Robert Downey Jr., Paul Rudd and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch.
It appears as though the production is still located in an African marketplace, which will presumably stand in for an area near – or indeed within – Black Panther’s Wakanda. Reports suggest it is here that a global incident forces the world’s elite into action over the superheroes, before rolling out a divisive registration act that essentially seeds the titular battle, headed up on each »
