12 lessons we learned from 2014's summer movies

6 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

What a summer at the movies! The galaxy got guarded. The future days went past, like some sort of extinct age. The planet of the apes stopped rising and started dawning. Our stars had a fault. And also: Lucy!

Hollywood had a rough season at the box office in summer 2014, with overall box-office receipts falling precipitously from last year’s flurry of mega-grossers. Going into this weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy, the highest-grossing film at the summer box-office, has earned about $256 million–which would have made it the fifth highest-grossing movie of summer 2013.

Word on the street says that 2014 was »

Exploring the Treatment of Women in Video Games

29 August 2014 12:39 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't really play video games any longer unless you count "Candy Crush". When it comes to next gen gaming systemsm in the past I've played "Uncharted", a little "Call of Duty, but mostly games such as "Tiger Woods Golf" and "Gran Turismo" so my experience with what is being discussed in the following videos is essentially zero, but it's rather damning stuff when it comes to the portrayal of women in video games. The videos presented here use a range of games to make the case women are most frequently portrayed as overtly sexual and brutalized side characters, included only to have violence done upon them either for the sake of creating a seedy atmosphere or to give the gamer something to do. Therefore, the characters are more or less props rather than actual characters. Considering most of these games feature a male protagonist and there are very few »

Jeremy Renner reveals Hawkeye’s fate in Avengers: Age of Ultron

28 August 2014 11:28 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ever since Joss Whedon announced that one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes may not make it out of Avengers: Age of Ultron alive, fans have speculated that Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye would be the one to bite the dust. Out of the superhero team, Hawkeye’s been given the shortest shrift and the least amount of both screentime and character development, so killing him off wouldn’t really affect the larger McU that killing someone like Tony Stark or Captain America would.

Renner recently appeared on Larry King Live, and was asked point blank if he would die in Age of Ultron. His answer?

“No no. No, I don’t die. I think they want to keep [characters] around for a while.”

This jives well with Renner’s recent comments about Hawkeye possibility showing up in Captain America 3. Obviously, it could also be a case of misdirection, as the actor would »

Jon Favreau’s Chef Returns to Theaters Friday, August 29

28 August 2014 7:53 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Chef, the critically acclaimed hit film written by, directed by, produced by and starring Jon Favreau, will return to theaters nationwide on August 29.

Chef has taken in nearly $30 million at the box office and has earned high praise from audiences, critics and top celebrity chefs like Mario Batali, Anthony Bourdain and Tom Colicchio. Chef was the opening night film at the 2014 SXSW Film Festival and was an official selection at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival where it took home the Audience Award. Chef was also the winner of the Audience Award at the 2014 Newport Beach Film Festival.

Read Jim Batts review Here.

Lauded by critics when it hit theaters in May 2014, Scott Bowles of USA Today called Chef, “One of the most heartwarming of the year. You need not be a foodie to appreciate the film’s reverence for a good meal. More surprising than the great culinary scenes are the moments between father and son. »

'Avengers 2' May Assemble a New Team Led by Captain America

28 August 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now that Jeremy Renner has cleared up rumors of his demise in Avengers: Age of Ultron, a new report has surfaced that hints at a whole new team suiting up for The Avengers 3 and beyond.

Badass Digest reveals that, at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America (Chris Evans) will assemble a brand new team of Avengers for Phase Three. While the site wouldn't reveal who this new team will include, one name that has been in every version of the script is Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel. However, now Marvel is "having cold feet" about bringing Captain Marvel into the Marvel Cinematic Universe this way.

The exact lineup of the new Avengers has not been finalized, and this scene was not shot during principal photography, which wrapped earlier this month. Marvel reportedly may pull Captain Marvel from this new lineup because they aren't sure if »

'Avengers 2': Jeremy Renner Responds to Hawkeye Rumors

28 August 2014 1:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While doing press for his upcoming thriller Kill the Messenger, Jeremy Renner revealed a potential spoiler for Avengers: Age of Ultron in a new interview with Larry King.

Larry King bluntly asked Jeremy Renner if his character Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye, dies in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Here's what the actor had to say below.

"No, I don't die. I think they want to keep me around for a while."

There has been a fan theory circulating for quite some time that Hawkeye may meet his maker in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow are the only two Avengers who don't have their own stand-alone movie yet, but that could change in the near future, since Marvel plans on keeping him around.

This comes just a few days after the actor hinted his character may surface in the Marvel Phase Three adventure Captain »

Underworld franchise to be rebooted

27 August 2014 11:03 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The horror action franchise starring Kate Beckinsale is to be given the reboot treatment. Expect a new Underworld movie soon...

Notable for their slow-mo, acrobatic action and Kate Beckinsale as a vampire in black Pvc, the Underworld franchise began just over a decade ago. The original Underworld, released in 2003, wasn't a blockbuster in the Marvel sense of the word, but it launched a memorable action heroine and spawned three sequels: Underworld: Evolution (2006), Rise Of The Lycans (2009 - actually a prequel, technically speaking) and Awakening (2012).

To date, the franchise has made a shade over $450m - not a bad sum, given that they didn't cost a huge amount to make in the first place.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series is set to be rebooted, with Cory Goodman (who previously wrote the 2011 film Priest, which had a similar action-horror atmosphere) in charge of writing the script. Presumably, the success of »

'Avengers 3': Will Chris Evans Return as Captain America?

27 August 2014 9:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the Blu-ray and DVD release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier on September 9, directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo have recently been making the press rounds again for this Marvel Phase Two adventure. The filmmakers are already hard at work on the sequel, Captain America 3, which hits theaters in less than two years, on May 6, 2016.

There has been speculation that Captain America 3 will be the last movie to feature Chris Evans as the super soldier, especially since Steve Rogers handed over the Captain America mantle a number of times in the comics. After Tony Stark essentially "retired" his Iron Man suits in Iron Man 3, many have wondered if Captain America 3 will be the last time fans see Chris Evans as Cap.

While Anthony Russo wouldn't say for sure if Chris Evans will be ending his run as Captain America in the sequel, he did offer »

Jessica Chastain criticises Marvel: 'Where is the Scarlett Johansson movie?'

27 August 2014 5:39 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jessica Chastain has called for a female superhero movie to be released.

Chastain criticised Marvel and Hollywood in general for not giving Scarlett Johansson's popular Avengers character Black Widow her own solo movie.

Scarlett Johansson's 5 best roles: Under the Skin, The Avengers

X-Men's David Hayter wants to revive Black Widow film

"Where is the Scarlett Johansson superhero movie? I don't understand it, why is it taking so long for this?" she declared to The Wrap. "This woman clearly shows that people want to go see her in the movies."

Chastain continued: "Lucy, didn't it beat Hercules by a lot opening weekend, when it was made for a lot less? She shows that she kicks ass, she's a great actress. Under the Skin is an incredible film, and why are we still waiting for a go-ahead on a superhero movie starring Scarlett Johansson?

Jessica Chastain Asks: Where Is Scarlett Johansson's Marvel Solo Movie?

27 August 2014 3:02 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In the past, Jessica Chastain ("Interstellar") was supposed to appear in Iron man 3 but due to a scheduling conflict she couldn't participate. She was also rumored to be up for the female lead in Ant-Man at one time and passed on that too. Now Jessica is speaking up for Marvel's most successful female actress, Scarlett Johansson. Wondering where is her solo Marvel film? “Where is the Scarlett Johansson superhero movie? I don't understand it, why is it taking so long for this?” Chastain asked TheWrap, rhetorically and with no small degree of animation. “This woman clearly shows that people want to go see her in the movies. ‘Lucy,’ didn't it beat ‘Hercules’ by a lot opening weekend, when it was made for a lot less? She shows that she kicks ass, she's a great actress. ‘Under the Skin’ is an incredible film, and why are we still waiting for »

Vox writes David Chase article, Internet clings to closure that Tony Soprano officially didn’t die

27 August 2014 2:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Update: In response to the firestorm of news that came out of the Vox article, David Chase responded to Vulture via a publicist: “A journalist for Vox misconstrued what David Chase said in their interview. To simply quote David as saying,” Tony Soprano is not dead,” is inaccurate. There is a much larger context for that statement and as such, it is not true. As David Chase has said numerous times on the record, “Whether Tony Soprano is alive or dead is not the point.” To continue to search for this answer is fruitless. The final scene of The Sopranos raises a spiritual question that has no right or wrong answer.” So there.

People, being stupid, annoying, and stupid, cannot seem to cope with ambiguity, least of all when it is in an art form. Whether it’s a question of where Javier Bardem walks off to at the end »

Jessica Chastain, who played secret agents in “Zero Dark Thirty” and “The Debt,” is going to bat for a fellow ass-kicking leading lady.

New 'Avengers 2' Pictures, Hawkeye in 'Captain America 3' Rumors and 'Winter Soldier' Easter Eggs Revealed

27 August 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Empire has released the above new picture from behind-the-scenes of Avengers: Age of Ultron featuring Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and director Joss Whedon showing him how to properly shoot his bow. Meanwhile, Renner recently spoke with Collider and gave hints we may be seeing more of Hawkeye sooner rather than later. "There are rumblings of Captain America 3," he said. "I don't know what's going to happen there. I've got to find the time, man. Laughs I'm trying to stay home and I can't." At the same time, Captain America 3 co-director Joe Russo talked about what other Avengers may be showing up in the new film similar to Black Widow's (Scarlett Johansson) role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier saying they've already got someone set... could it be Hawkeyec "That's such a hard question because we've kind of already done that.

Could Hawkeye Be In Captain America 3?

27 August 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

Jeremy Renner has hinted that Hawkeye may be given a role in the third Captain America film. The actor recently confirmed ‘rumblings’ of the third film, and noted that he has a busy schedule with upcoming movies in a Collider interview.

Jeremy Renner’s character was given a small cameo in the first Thor film, and became one of Loki’s mind controlled minions in The Avengers. Due to these underwhelming roles it has been suggested that Hawkeye will receive a leading role in The Avengers 2, although this is speculation at the moment. By including Hawkeye in the sequel to The Winter Soldier, Marvel could give the character the screen time he deserves rather than have him in the background.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been expanding rapidly in recent years. It now crosses from television to cinema, and will soon include a number of Netflix shows. »
