Scarlett Johansson Opens Up About Dating Again, Thinks Gordon Ramsay 'Is the Hottest Guy'

27 March 2017 3:34 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

When it comes to dating Scarlett Johansson, it's complicated.

The 32-year-old actress appeared on Howard Stern's Sirius Xm show on Monday, where she was pressed about her newly single status, after filing for divorce from her husband, French journalist Romain Dauriac, earlier this month. Johansson said she worries less about her fame getting in the way of dating again, as opposed to how it will affect her daughter, 2-year-old Rose.

"I'm on guard because I have a young daughter," Johansson said, agreeing with co-host Robin Quivers that she would never introduce her daughter to just anyone. "That's something I'm more concerned about."

Still, Stern had plenty of fun trying to set up the A-list actress with his pals, including David Spade, Louis C.K., John Stamos and Orlando Bloom.

27 March 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Chris Evans' plan to be a dad one day isn't the only thing he revealed to E! News when we sat down with him last week to talk about his new movie Gifted. Here are five more things we learned about the hunky actor that ya gotta know. 1. Young Love: Evans said he had at least three celebrity crushes when he was a kid. "Elisabeth Shue from Adventures of Babysitting and Karate Kid!...Lori Loughlin was a big one. Come on, who didn't love Lori Loughlin? She hasn't aged at all. Sandra Bullock was a big one when I was like in seventh or eight grade." 2. Song & Dance: Evans not only knows how to tap dance (just ask any of his co-stars, who frequently comment on his awesome »

The Week in Movies – new Justice League trailer released! Original Rogue One Ending revealed! Power Rangers reviewed and more…

26 March 2017 7:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Week in Movies discusses the last seven days in cinema, including the original ending to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story being revealed, a new Justice League trailer released, Power Rangers reviewed and more…

The Week in Movies is an excerpt from the weekly Flickering Myth Super Newsletter. Subscribe here to get it delivered to your inbox every Sunday.

The ultimate fixer-upper.

Disney’s live-action-ish remake of Beauty and the Beast made $350 million worldwide in its opening weekend. Just a few days later, it had already grossed more than the 1991 animated original.

Of course, that’s not accounting for the hundreds of millions lost with inflation. But that wouldn’t make as good a headline.

The success means Disney “will explore possible spinoff and prequel scenarios”. A solo movie of Gaston being Gaston should top that list.

As you see he’s got biceps to spare.

Exclusive: Chris Evans Says He's 'Absolutely' Looking Forward to Becoming a Father

25 March 2017 12:37 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Chris Evans is looking forward to the next chapter in life.

Et's Carly Steel sat down with the 35-year-old actor at the junket of his new film, Gifted, on Friday, where he opened up about playing a father figure on screen, and revealed that he "absolutely" wants to have kids of his own one day.

Exclusive: Watch Chris Evans Prank People as Captain America for a Good Cause

"Of course [I want to have children]," Evans shared. "That's certainly something I look forward to, absolutely."

"You'd make an amazing father," the actor's 10-year-old co-star, Mckenna Grace, adorably added. "You would be a good dad. You would. You're really nice."

"You're so sweet, kiddo," Evans gushed.

While we'll have to wait to see the Captain America star's skills as a father, he and Grace also dished on some of their secret talents.

Chris Evans Talks Fatherhood, Says He "Wants to Be a Daddy at Some Point"

24 March 2017 5:59 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Watching Chris Evans in his new movie Gifted, one can't help to think of what he'll be like when he has his own kids. In the Fox Searchlight film, the Captain America star plays a boat mechanic raising his six-year-old math prodigy niece (Mckenna Grace) when his overbearing mother (Sherlock's Lindsay Duncan) takes him to court to gain custody of the young child. At one point, Evans breaks down in tears. "Crying on cue is a tough thing to do, but I tell you what there is no better catalyst than this little nugget over here," Evans says as he looks at his 10-year-old co-star. "She is so good and so honest. Those tears start rolling, you would have to be pretty heartless to not get »

Chris Evans open to extending his Marvel contract after Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4

24 March 2017 2:08 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week a report surfaced online suggesting that Chris Evans is ready to hang up the shield following the end of his initial deal with Marvel Studios on Avengers: Infinity War and its as-yet-untitled sequel.

There has of course been plenty of speculation about Evans’ future in the McU for several years now, stemming from the ‘Death of Captain America’ arc in the comic books, and the fact that Evans has expressed his desire to move into directing.

While this latest report didn’t have any direct quotes from the man himself, Evans has now revealed to Collider that he’s open to renegotiating his deal and extending his time as the Sentinel of Liberty.

“It’s really not up to me,” said Evans.” My contract is up. I’m not going to sit here and say, ‘No more.’ I think Hugh Jackman has made 47 Wolverine movies, and they somehow keep getting better. »

Is Akira Finally Emerging From Development Hell?

24 March 2017 1:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Way back in 2002, Warner Bros. acquired the rights to Katushiro Otomo’s classic manga/anime Akira. The film promptly sank into development hell though, with every attempt to begin production running into budgetary, scheduling or casting issues. Today, however,  it was revealed that the studio is eager to get the production moving again, no doubt fuelled by the anticipated success of Rupert Sanders’ Ghost In The Shell.

Akira takes place in Neo-Tokyo, a city built on the ruins of old Tokyo after a gigantic and devastating explosion. Its heroes are biker gang members Tetsuo and Kaneda, who become embroiled in a government conspiracy to unlock latent psychic talents. The anime beautifully combines sleek cyberpunk yumminess, body horror and surreal dream elements, all set to a cacophonously bizarre soundtrack of dissonant chanting.

Rumors are that Warner Bros. is approaching two directors – Daniel Espinosa (Life) and David Sandberd (Light’s Out). Both are currently hot properties, »

Vision Escapes a Beating in Latest Infinity War Set Video

24 March 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, a new photo surfaced from the Edinburgh, U.K. set of Avengers: Infinity War, which gave fans their first look at the returning Avenger Vision. While he was certainly expected to be back for this massive superhero ensemble, Marvel has yet to confirm any cast members at this time. Paul Bettany's iconic character is confirmed by these videos, though it isn't clear if that the actor himself is doing these stunts, or if it's his double. This latest video shows Vision in action, using his super powers to escape a fight.

The video surfaced last night from Twitter user "Mundo Vengador," who claims that this video shows, "Vision being kidnapped and fighting two aliens on the set of Avengers: Infinity War." Unfortunately, this Twitter user wouldn't elaborate further on this scene, or reveal who exactly these aliens are. It's possible that these aliens are working for Thanos (Josh Brolin »

Will Chris Evans Return in Captain America 4?

24 March 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Not all that long ago, as in, last week kind of not all that long ago, it looked like Chris Evans may be getting ready to hang up his shield for good and say goodbye to the role of Captain America. Now we have word from the actor himself that he is perfectly willing to play the part of Steve Rogers in the future, but the decision isn't really up to him. It is all up to Marvel Studios and, if they want to play ball, it sounds like Chris Evans may return in Captain America 4 after Avengers 4 brings Marvel Phase 4 to a close. Dang that's a lot of 4s!

While it is true that Chris Evans' contract will be up with Marvel following Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, that doesn't mean he is done, as was previously reported. The actor recently spoke with Collider about whether or not »

Chris Evans On His Future In McU: ‘I’m Not Going To Sit Here And Say, ‘No More’’

24 March 2017 7:06 AM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

Every so often we get to this point in an actor’s contract where the future seemed uncertain. Following Iron Man 3, it became clear that Marvel Cinematic Universe poster boy Robert Downey Jr was approaching the end of his contract, and there was a lot of speculation that this could be the end. Given that Downey ended up in Captain America: Civil War, and that he’ll be around at least through Avengers 4, it’s clear that renegotiations are always up for discussion.

The same can be said of Chris Evans. This was an actor who initially seemed unsure and uncomfortable in the role of Captain America. While the first film did well enough, it by no means catapulted his character to the forefront of everyone’s favorites list. That wouldn’t come until Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and it’s around that time that Evans seemed to »

Newswire: Chris Evans isn’t ready to hang up Captain America’s shield

24 March 2017 6:14 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Although it’s not quite lengthy a run as Logan star Hugh Jackman’s, Chris Evans has been donning the old stars and stripes as Captain America for what must seem like an especially long time in Hollywood years. He first joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger, and by the time Avengers 4 rolls around, he’ll have played the character in 7 films total (not including popping up in post-credits scenes and being impersonated by Loki). He could certainly be forgiven for wanting to move on or stay put and build his retirement fund. In recent years, Evans suggested he was leaning towards the former, telling Variety in 2014 that he planned to start directing once his contract was up.

But maybe that big fight in Civil War has old Cap rethinking the pending split, because he now tells Collider that he ...

Looks Like Chris Evans Is Open To Extending His Marvel Contract Beyond Avengers: Infinity War And Its Untitled Sequel

23 March 2017 12:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Contrary to previous reports, Chris Evans has hinted at the possibility of extending his Marvel contract beyond Avengers: Infinity War and its 2019 sequel.

You may remember Evans’ interview with Esquire from last week, in which the Captain America star hinted that his time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was drawing to a close. Indeed, the actor’s hesitancy sparked rumors that the Powers That Be were ready to pass over the iconic shield to Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), much like the same transition seen in Marvel’s original line of comics. And though Chris Evans will have fulfilled his contract by the time Avengers 4 crashes into theaters in May of 2019, the actor-cum-director is keeping an open mind when it comes to his potential future in the McU.

When asked if he’s set to hang up the shield following Infinity War and its untitled sequel, Evans told Collider that:

Set Photos For Avengers: Infinity War Confirm The Return Of Vision And Scarlet Witch

23 March 2017 8:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Avengers: Infinity War is still more than a year away and already, its casting docket is the stuff of legend. Bringing together Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for the third ensemble movie – both Thor and Hulk were conveniently Awol during Captain America: Civil War, remember – we know from previous reports that the Guardians of the Galaxy will hold a small, but “integral” role in Joe and Anthony Russo’s titanic blockbuster, which surely involves the Infinity Stones and/or the impending battle with Thanos.

But Josh Brolin’s glowering Mad Titan isn’t the only thing the Avengers will have to contend with; according to co-director Joe Russo, Infinity War will find our heroes “at their lowest, at their worst” following the fallout from Civil War, so it’ll be interesting to see how those costumed crusaders make amends before Thanos descends onto Earth baying for blood.

Deadpool 2: Michael Shannon Emerges As Frontrunner To Play Cable

22 March 2017 1:36 PM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

Here at Lrm we're kind of into Deadpool. Ryan Reynolds' sarcastic Merc with a Mouth jolted new life into the flagging superhero genre last year and anticipation for the sequel has grown exponentially over the last several months. The internet has been buzzing over the recent announcement of actress Zazie Beetz securing the role of mutant marksman Domino, but there's been far greater debate (and some crazy speculation) over who should portray the time-travelling super-soldier, Cable. 

A list of plausible, potential actors has made the rounds, including Stranger Things' fearless sheriff David Harbour and Friday Night Lights alum Kyle Chandler; on the sligtly less-likely side, rumors include Brad Pitt, Dolph Lundgren, Ron Perlman, WWE's Adam Copeland (Edge), and even Charlize Theron; and yet, here's not been a clear frontrunner for the part.

Until today.

If you're unfamiliar with the character, Cable is the offspring of X-Men's Cyclops/Scott Summers »

Zhang Yimou Begins Shooting ‘Shadow,’ Chris Evans to Lead ‘Red Sea Diving Resort,’ and More

22 March 2017 8:42 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It may not have made much of a splash here, but Zhang Yimou‘s The Great Wall has made nearly $330 million worldwide, and now he’s already started shooting his next project. Variety reports the director has begun production on Shadow, a historical epic that takes place in the Three Kingdoms era around mid-200s Ad. Unfortunately, no details are revealed beyond that, but the cast includes Deng Chao, Zheng Kai, Wang Qianyuan, Hu Jun, Guan Xiaotong, Wu Lei and Wang Jingchun. With production underway, hopefully we’ll see it by next year.

In other news, Chris Evans has found the rare non-Captain America role. Deadline reports he’ll be leading Red Sea Diving Resort, a new drama from longtime Homeland writer-producer Gideon Raff. The film will follow Evans’ character, Ari Kidron, and his ragtag team’s involvement in rescuing Jewish people from Ethiopia and transporting them to Israel »

Vulture has an amazing profile on Jenny Slate which also gives personal insight into her career and life and, more surprisingly, her former relationship with Chris Evans. He comes off sounding so dreamy which is not what you expect in a breakup discussion!


Variety the tennis film Battle of the Sexes gets a Sept 22nd release date. Will Emma Stone be back in the Oscar race or will there be no need for a victory lap?

Coming Soon there's a project being pitched in Hollywood that unites classic fairy tale heroines in one story (like a superhero team but fairy tale princesses) 

Collider interviews the undervalued Michael Peña about CHIPs and he reveals that he still doesn't know if he's in the Ant-Man sequel (which seemed foolish of Marvel since he totally stole that movie)

Jenny Slate Opens Up About Split From Chris Evans: 'Last Year Was a Giant, Big Year for My Heart'

21 March 2017 10:13 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Jenny Slate is mending her broken heart.

The Gifted star split from Chris Evans earlier this year, after less than a year of dating. The two began a romantic relationship in May 2016, and made their red carpet debut just one month later at the New York City premiere of her film, The Secret Life of Pets.

Watch: Jenny Slate Steps Out Following Split From Chris Evans

In a new interview with Vulture, Slate candidly talks about her relationship with the Captain America star and reveals what ultimately led to their breakup.

“He’s a lovely person,” she says when asked if she felt comfortable discussing her relationship with Evans. “I don’t know. It feels like such a huge thing. Last year was a giant, big year for my heart. I’ve never, ever thought to keep anything private because that’s not really what I’m like, and now I’m learning those things, and they’re »
