Weta Workshop has revealed its upcoming 1/4th scale mixed media figures for The Major and Robo Geisha from the live-action adaptation of the celebrated manga series Ghost in the Shell.

The Major’s thermoptic suit was to be a centrepiece of Ghost in the Shell and represented a benchmark for Weta Workshop’s creativity and innovation. Taking digital scans of actress Scarlett Johansson, the Workshop built an extraordinary physical effects suit unlike anything it had attempted before. Cast in a smooth, translucent silicone over a mesh fabric, it adhered to The Major like a second skin; a piece of technology, both practical and iconic.

Scarlett Johansson‘s Paris popcorn shop, Yummy Pop, offers a variety of unique flavors—but a standout favorite for the actress is the salted caramel and Nutella flavor.
“I think the hazelnut flavor of the chocolate and the nutty flavor popcorn are a perfect compliment,” the Sing star tells People of the recipe she shares in this week’s issue, on stands now. “Everything is better when it’s smothered in Nutella—especially popcorn.”
Johansson opened the gourmet shop last October with her French ex-husband, Romain Dauriac. Though the two have been split since the summer, they remain partners in the new business venture, »

The Criterion Collection has announced its May offerings, including “Dheepan,” “Ghost World” and a Blu-ray update of “Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles.” Also joining the Collection are Orson Welles’ “Othello,” a new World Cinema Project collector’s set and Yasujirō Ozu’s “Good Morning.” More information below.
“Terry Zwigoff’s first fiction film, adapted from a cult-classic comic by Daniel Clowes, is an idiosyncratic portrait of adolescent alienation that’s at once bleakly comic and wholly endearing. Set during the malaise-filled months following high-school graduation, ‘Ghost World’ follows the proud misfit Enid (Thora Birch), who confronts an uncertain future amid the cultural wasteland of consumerist suburbia. As her cynicism becomes too much to bear even for her best friend, Rebecca (Scarlett Johansson), Enid finds herself drawn to an unlikely kindred »

April showers, bring May flowers, and new releases from The Criterion Collection. I know, it’s not my greatest lede ever, but I want to jump right into what’s coming from the boutique label.
Kicking things off is Terry Zwigoff‘s cult favorite “Ghost World” starring Thora Birch and Scarlett Johansson. This one has been in the works for a while now, and while it won’t be coming overflowing with extras, the new 4K restoration should be more than enough to snap this up (along with the lovely cover art, see below).

Scarlett Johansson made headlines this week for coming out and saying she doesn't believe monogamy is "natural." "I think the idea of marriage is very romantic; it's a beautiful idea, and the practice of it can be a very beautiful thing," the 32-year-old actress told Playboy. "I don't think it's natural to be a monogamous person. I might be skewered for that, but I think it's work. It's a lot of work, and the fact that it is such work for so many people—for everyone—the fact of that proves that it is not a natural thing." She continued, "It's something I have a lot of respect for and have participated in, but I think it definitely goes against some »

Scarlett Johansson recently sat down with Playboy for a lengthy interview, and while there was sadly no mention of Avengers: Infinity War and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, she did address the whitewashing controversy surrounding Ghost in the Shell. The Major is typically portrayed as being Japanese, so the casting of a white actress in the role hasn't sat well with many fans. That's despite the fact that Johansson is such a well-liked and big star, and when she was asked about her awareness of what people have been saying about this, the actress responded: "I think the conversation about diversity in Hollywood is an important one and one that we should be having. My character has the unique experience of being a person whose human brain has been put into what was essentially a synthetic robotic body. I guess I always thought the character was a universal one, in the »
Following the news that Ben Affleck had stepped down as director of The Batman (thought to be replaced by Matt Reeves), a new rumour surfaced yesterday that Batfleck could be done with the Dceu all together. This is not the first time this has been rumoured, and this one has come from Collider’s John Campea (who is often on the money). “I’ve talked to three separate people, both in one way or another connected in some way to what’s going on at Warner Bros,” he said. “What all three have told me was that — nothing about whether the script was thrown out or whether they liked the script, nothing about the direction Matt Reeves is taking it, none of that — but one of the things that has come out of the conversation with all three is this. They’re telling me that Ben Affleck, make no mistake, »

Marvel fans were delighted at the end of last week when Marvel Studios decided to pull down the veil of secrecy and release a behind-the-scenes video for Avengers: Infinity War. Fans got to see Spider-Man (Tom Holland), Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) hanging out together, which was pretty cool. But perhaps more cool was the look at Thanos that was provided in the video. Now, in another welcomed reveal, Avengers: Infinity War co-writer Stephen McFeely has explained Thanos' grand plan.
Just in case you were worried, Stephen McFeely doesn't really give any spoilers, but just merely gives an idea of what Thanos is ultimately trying to accomplish in vague terms. The reveal comes courtesy of the Doctor Strange Blu-ray/DVD release, as reported by Screen Rant. Here is what McFeely had to say about Thanos' plan in Avengers 3.
"His goal is to re-balance the universe as he sees it. »
