19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday Robert Downey Jr. shared a behind-the-scenes photo from Avengers: Infinity War showing that Benedict Cumberbatch is now on set to film scenes as the Sorcerer Supreme, and now we’ve got another set photo, this time featuring directors Anthony and Joe Russo hanging out in the Sanctum Sanctorum with Doctor Strange helmer Scott Derrickson.

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

Avengers: Infinity War opens on April 27th 2018 in the UK and May 4th 2018 in the Us and will feature an all-star cast including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Paul Bettany (Vision), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Josh Brolin (Thanos), Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), Benedict Wong (Wong), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Dave Bautista (Drax), Bradley Cooper (Rocket), Sean Gunn (Rocket) Vin Diesel (Groot), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Sean Gunn (Kraglin), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Samuel L.

Jon Hamm and Jenny Slate Spotted Out on Movie Date: They’re ‘Friendly,’ Says Source

21 June 2017 2:16 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Is there a hilarious new celebrity power couple in the works?

Fellow funny, famous and single people Jon Hamm and Jenny Slate were spotted coming out of a movie theater in New York City last week, and social media is already pining for the duo to make things official. 

But for now, a source tells People that Hamm, 46, and Slate, 35, are just “friendly.”

Slate recently dated Chris Evans until they broke up in February. The actress cited the Captain America star’s fame as one of the reasons for their split. “Chris is a very, very famous person,” Slate said »

Newswire: Iron Man isn’t invited to the next Spider-Man movie, but a different Marvel hero will be

21 June 2017 11:55 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark has been a huge part of the marketing for Spider-Man: Homecoming (especially on one particular poster), but he’s not going to become a regular part of the new Spider-Man movies. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Iron Man won’t appear in the Homecoming sequel, but Sony has worked out a deal with Marvel Studios to get some “to-be-determined” superhero from the McU in his place. We have no idea who that might be, and THR doesn’t offer any clues, but there’s really only a handful of characters that would feel as appropriate in Spider-Man’s world as Tony Stark does.

Captain America seems like a reasonably safe bet, but Chris Evans already seems to be stretching the limits of how many superhero movies he’s willing to do. Thor would be weird, Hulk would be a little weird, Hawkeye would be »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Robert Downey Jr. And Mark Ruffalo Unite In Avengers: Infinity War Set Photo

21 June 2017 11:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While it’ll be interesting to see the Infinity Stones come together and Thanos rise to power, by far what we’re most looking forward to in Avengers: Infinity War is for all the various heroes across the Marvel Cinematic Universe to meet. Without any trailers to speak of as yet, we haven’t had much to tease the crossover, but a new behind the scenes snap goes some way in promising lots of superhero goodness to come.

Shared by Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr., on his Twitter page, the photo sees the actor enjoying lunch with co-stars Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), who’s sporting a new costume, Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) and Benedict Wong (er, Wong). That’s three Avengers and one important supporting character in the same place. Who else wishes they were at that table as well?

Downey’s Tweet sports some fun hashtags, too. In particular, fans will note that the actor has created his own team name for Iron Man and Doctor Strange – #beardbros – to go alongside the #sciencebros tag used for Tony and Bruce Banner. The hashtag reminds us of a rather hilarious moment from the comics as well (see below), which we really hope finds its way into Infinity War in some form.

It’s important to note that Joe and Anthony Russo’s superhero extravaganza might not be the first time that the would-be Sorcerer Supreme encounters the Jade Giant. That’s because Cumberbatch is set to make an appearance as Doctor Strange in this November’s Thor: Ragnarok, which will also feature Mark Ruffalo’s big, green rage monster in a major role. It’s unknown how involved he’ll be, but we do hope that the two actors get to share at least a few scenes together.

In addition to the four stars above, Infinity War will also feature the rest of the Avengers (Chris Evans, Scarlet Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, etc.), the Guardians of the Galaxy (Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, etc.) and practically everyone else we’ve ever met in the McU. It’s going to be one hell of a big film, and it’s set to crash into theatres on May 4th, 2018. »

Connecting Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, and Chris Pine

Connecting Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, and Chris PineConnecting Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, and Chris PineJenny Bullough6/21/2017 12:58:00 Pm

Is it just us, or is every hot actor in Hollywood right now named Chris? Evans, Hemsworth, Pine, and Pratt are all saving the day (sometimes even the universe) onscreen. But did you know that they’re all connected by the movies and co-stars they’ve shared? Since it's Chris Pratt's birthday, we're sharing our Chris Degrees of Separation.

Obviously, Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth are connected by co-starring in the blockbuster Avengers movies! As amazing as Captain America: Civil War was, we missed seeing Thor fighting alongside his comrades-in-arms, and can't wait for Thor: Ragnarok!

Hemsworth, of course, was in the first J.J. Abrams Star Trek reboot with Chris Pine. Although they didn’t share screen time, Hemsworth played the first Captain Kirk, who sacrifices himself in the first minutes of the film so that his crew – including his wife and newborn son James Tiberius Kirk – can escape the Romulans.

Rumour has it that he'll reprise his role as George Kirk in the next Star Trek film. It might be just a flashback sequence, but we can't help but hope that some kind of rip in the space-time continuum will allow two of our favorite Chrises, Hemsworth and Pine, to meet on the big screen! Meanwhile, you can catch Pine inhabiting another superhero franchise, battling alongside Gal Gadot's titular Wonder Woman in his role as Steve Trevor! 

Bonus: read our Five Reasons to See Wonder Woman!

The Star Trek franchise also features Zoe Saldana as one of our favourite characters, Uhura. Saldana seems to be making a career of playing space-dwelling females – she’s also the green-skinned Gamora in the two Guardians of the Galaxy films alongside another favourite Chris: Chris Pratt!

Bonus: watch the trailer below and read our Five Reasons to See Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!

We'll have to wait until May 2018 to finally see the Guardians alongside the Avengers in Avengers: Infinity War, but we'll bet it'll be epic. We can’t wait to see what new connections will open up!

Rumoured Fantastic Four Reboot Planned At Fox!

21 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Fantastic Four has not fared well so far in the movie world. Marvel's original first family, and Stan Lee's favourite creation, has been developed twice by Fox who have the rights to the series and its characters. It would be fair to say that neither of these efforts has struck a chord with fans, in fact the latest offering in 2015 is frankly an awful film and has seemingly wrecked the career of director Josh Trank, losing him the Star Wars Boba Fett directing gig in the process (though to be fair, his behavior was also a big part of that loss).

For Fox to hold onto the rights of these characters they must make movies, no matter how bad they are it seems. Fan's have long wished for them to allow the rights to revert back to Marvel/Disney in order for the characters, and villains, to be used within the McU. One universal truth is that Dr. Doom is one of Marvel greatest villains, and yet Fox have so far shown a complete misunderstanding of the character they have the rights to.

Related: Mads Mikkelson Walked Out Of His Fantastic Four Audition  

It now seems like Fox are planning to dip their toes in the well again. Bleeding Cool has heard from sources that Fox are getting ready for another shot, but with a completely different approach this time.

The outlet says that Seth Grahame-Smith has been hired to write the screenplay. Smith already has some history with this franchise, as he scripted a pass at the most recent Fantastic Four movie before Josh Trank decided to write his own screenplay instead. The outlet also says they have been told the focus for this reboot will be more kid friendly in the vein of The Incredibles, which is interesting. Many people have commented that The Incredibles is actually the best Fantastic Four movie to be released as it captures the spirit of the comic books so well. Apparently this new take will focus on telling the story through the eyes of the children of Reed and Sue Richards, Franklin and Valeria Richards, but Human Torch and Thing will be present as well. We can only assume this also means a full recast, the cast of the latest effort are far too young for this scenario, and the tonal change would be too stark to buy for audiences. I also don't think Fox would want any new movie to be associated with that disastrous effort.

If true, it's an interesting approach to take, as long as it doesn't get too campy, like the Chris Evans starring original attempts at cracking this franchise. Most importantly, can they finally deliver a Dr. Doom that lives up to the iconic status he earned in the comics? If it does not work out, Fox are free to give me a call as I have a really good outline for a Fantastic Four movie (I won't hold my breath), and if they mess up this third attempt, then frankly, "It's clobberin' time."

What do you guys think? Happy for them to take another shot, or do you just wish they'd give up and let Marvel have the characters back? Let us know in the comments down below.

Wait, Are Jenny Slate and Jon Hamm Dating?

21 June 2017 8:50 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jenny Slate and Jon Hamm may or may not be dating, and the internet is having a field day. The pair, who costarred in Aardvark earlier this year, were spotted catching a movie together. While it could just be a friendly outing, both of them are newly single. Jon recently had a "really hard" breakup with his girlfriend of 18 years, Jennifer Westfeldt; meanwhile, Jenny famously split from her Gifted costar Chris Evans in February. Even though the actress kept their relationship under the radar when they were dating, she was practically an open book during her interview with Vulture, adding that they were just "really, really different" in the end. Perhaps she's found love with another costar? »

Sherlock Creators Steven Moffat And Mark Gatiss Reuniting For Dracula TV Series

20 June 2017 8:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sherlock might be on indefinite hiatus, but the two creators of BBC’s smash-hit drama, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, have got a new show lined up. Variety reports that the pair are working on a TV series based on Bram Stoker’s classic horror novel Dracula

Simply titled Dracula, the show will follow the same format as Sherlock, taking the shape of a miniseries run of feature-length 90 minute episodes. It’ll be produced by Sue Vertue and her company Harstwood Films, who were also behind the aforementioned BBC hit. 

Variety says that Moffat and Gatiss are “currently working on solo projects” but will turn their attention towards Dracula soon. Though no scripts have been written, talks are already underway with the BBC for broadcast rights in the U.K. It seems likely that a deal will be made, too, seeing as Moffat has brought much success to the corporation »

‘Wonder Woman’ Star Gal Gadot Earned a Surprising Low Salary for Her Role in the Massive Hit

20 June 2017 7:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Updated: Warner Bros. and DC have a massive, seemingly unstoppable hit on their hands in the form of “Wonder Woman” — which has so far pulled in over half a billion dollars in worldwide ticket sales — but that doesn’t mean that everyone involved with the project are currently lining their pockets with cold, hard cash. And that includes even star Gal Gadot.

As Variety reported in January of 2014, the actress is signed for a three-picture deal with DC, including “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “Wonder Woman,” and the upcoming “Justice League” film. For each film, the Israeli star is set to receive just $300,000. You read that correctly. (Update: Over at BuzzFeed, a new report holds that “Gadot was paid ‘at least’ as much for ‘Wonder Woman’ as [Henry] Cavill was paid for ‘Man of Steel,'” more on that below, though the reported $300,000 amount has not been debunked.)

Gal Gadot’s salary for Wonder Woman, Batman v Superman and Justice League revealed

20 June 2017 1:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Reports are coming in from The Daily Dot that Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot has earned a salary of $300,000 per film for last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, her recently released solo feature, and the upcoming Justice League.

For comparison, Henry Cavill made a whopping $14 million for playing Superman in Man of Steel alone. However, while there may seem like a hugely unfair pay gap here, it’s also worth noting that Chris Evans was paid the same exact sum for Captain America: The First Avenger. On the flipside, Robert Downey Jr. made upwards to $50 million from The Avengers alone, not only because he is the primary star of the McU, but also because his contract has guarantees in place that includes backend compensation and bonuses for box office milestones.

The Daily Dot article goes on to speculate that Gadot will also likely have a clause in »

Kate Beckinsale and Pierce Brosnan lead The Only Living Boy In New York, from The Amazing Spider-Man’s Marc Webb

Director Marc Webb has now completed two features in fairly short order following wrapping up his blockbuster work with The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Gifted, starring Chris Evans, arrived in UK cinemas last Friday. And turning up in the Us in August is The Only Living Boy In New York.

The film stars Kate Beckinsale, Pierce Brosnan, Kiersey Clemons, Cynthia Nixon, Jeff Bridges and Callum Turner, and it comes from a script by Allan Loeb. The movie has been funded by Roadside Attractions and Amazon Studios, and already seems to locked down with a 90 minute running time. The first trailer for it has landed overnight too, and here’s a flavour as to what to expect…

Jeff Bridges Brings Guidance in First Trailer for Marc Webb’s ‘Only Living Boy in New York’

19 June 2017 9:07 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

When you aren’t carrying the weight of a superhero tentpole franchise on your shoulders, it turns out you can get a whole lot more done. Following the Chris Evans-led Gifted in April, Marc Webb‘s second film of 2017 will be arriving just a few months after in August with The Only Living Boy in New York. Ahead of the release Amazon Studios have now unveiled the first trailer.

Scripted by Allan Loeb (who is on some sort of unfortunate streak with The Space Between UsCollateral BeautySo UndercoverHere Comes the Boom, Rock of Ages, and, well, the list goes on…), hopefully this one is an uptick for the writer, even if the trailer sells a fairly chintzy feel-good dramedy — one that seems to be skipping a festival debut. Starring Kate Beckinsale, Pierce Brosnan, Kiersey Clemons, Cynthia Nixon, Callum Turner, and Jeff Bridges, check out the trailer below. »

Find Out How Much Gal Gadot Made For Wonder Woman

19 June 2017 8:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It feels good, doesn’t it, to finally have a big win for the Dceu? After several years of failed efforts and rocky starts, Warner Bros.’ burgeoning cinematic universe is finally finding its feet thanks to Patty JenkinsWonder Woman. Not only is the film a hit with critics and audiences alike, but it’s also making big bucks at the box office, surpassing any and all expectations that we had beforehand and bringing in a very healthy profit for the studio.

As such, you’d imagine that star Gal Gadot is probably collecting a pretty nice payday as well, right? Wrong. Or at least, she hasn’t just yet. While it’s true that actors and actresses can receive bonuses for having their films hit certain milestones in terms of how much they earn during their theatrical run, what we’re looking at here is Gadot’s salary for »

First Trailer for Marc Webb's Film 'The Only Living Boy in New York'

19 June 2017 5:46 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"That's her - the other woman." Amazon + Roadside have unveiled the first official trailer for The Only Living Boy in New York, the second film from director Marc Webb being released this year (his other one is Gifted starring Chris Evans). The Only Living Boy in New York is about a recent college grad, played by Callum Turner (also seen in Victor Frankenstein, Assassin's Creed), whose big city life is thrown into disarray when he discovers his father has a mistress. This also stars Kate Beckinsale, Pierce Brosnan, Kiersey Clemons, Cynthia Nixon, and Jeff Bridges. This looks solid, a bit funky, with a mix of tones that may or may not work. I like Jeff Bridges as the older guy dispensing wisdom, I'll be hoping for the best.

Gal Gadot Only Made $300,000 For Starring In Wonder Woman

19 June 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

We live in a much different world than we used to. Back when a lot of us were growing up, star power was everything. You weren’t just going to a movie, you were going to a Mel Gibson movie, an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, or a Sylvester Stallone movie. Films were often described not by the stories they told or the franchise they were a part of, but by who was headlining the film. With franchises and comic book properties now carrying most of the marketing weight, studios are able to get away with paying their actors a lot less — at least when starting out.

Such is the case with actress Gal Gadot, who is best known right now for setting the world on fire as Diana in Wonder Woman. The film has so far broken $570 million worldwide at the box office, and now it’s fitting to wonder just »

Critics Pick the Worst Movies They’ve Ever Reviewed

19 June 2017 1:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. 

This week’s question: “The Book of Henry” has been assailed by critics. But let’s look beyond this particular reviled new release. What’s the worst movie you’ve ever reviewed?

Alissa Wilkinson (@alissamarie), Vox

It’s unfortunately not even a contest: “God’s Not Dead 2,” which I reviewed for Flavorwire and then wrote about it further for Thrillist. (The first movie is actually far worse, but I didn’t review it.) They’re actually not the worst-made movies I’ve seen, but as a Christian and a film critic, I find them so actively offensive and cynical that it’s somehow even more depressing. I didn’t derive any joy from the process, but it felt important that I write about it.

First Trailer For Marc Webb’s ‘The Only Living Boy In New York’

While “The Amazing Spider-Man” director Marc Webb is watching the franchise get rebooted, he’s not sweating it one bit. The filmmaker has returned to his indie roots in a big way, having already released “Gifted” this spring. While you weren’t looking, the Chris Evans starring dramedy has racked up an impressive $28 million worldwide, and now the filmmaker has another movie swinging into cinemas this summer, with “The Only Living Boy In New York.”

Gifted review

19 June 2017 8:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Marc Webb goes from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to Gifted, starring Chris Evans. Here's our review...

When the moment comes for Chris Evans to put down Captain America's shield, we'll be sorry to see the back of one of the best big screen superhero portrayals ever. But Marvel's loss will be cinema's gain, going by the interesting projects he's chosen between his more red, white and blue escapades. In Gifted, he's put whatever blockbuster clout he may have behind a project that deserves it, and the result is one of the year's nicest surprises.

Evans plays Frank Adler, a boat mechanic who lives in Florida with his seven-year-old niece Mary (Mckenna Grace) and a one-eyed rescue cat called Fred. Mary is a child prodigy who immediately captures the attention of her first-grade teacher Bonnie (Jenny Slate) with her advanced grasp of maths.
