Marvel officially releases its Avengers: Infinity War triptych poster

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may still be keeping the Avengers: Infinity War footage under wraps [despite it leaking online], but Marvel has decided to officially release its Comic-Con triptych poster for the hotly-anticipated superhero epic, which sees Thanos and his Black Order alongside The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy. Check it out here…

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 »

Exclusive: Pilou Asbaek talks Ghost in the Shell and working with Scarlett Johansson

14 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Ghost in the Shell set for its UK home entertainment release on Digital on July 24th and on August 7th on DVD and Blu-ray, we chat to actor Pilou Asbaek about his role in the film as Batou, and working with Scarlett Johansson who portrays the character of Major.

Were you familiar with the source material for Ghost in the Shell?

I saw some of the anime in the 90s but I can’t say I was a fan. It was a part of my history, but I wasn’t like one of those die-hard fans.

How did you become involved in the film?

It’s actually an interesting story. It’s a very long story so I’ll try to make it short. I worked with one of the producers in a little indie film before that. And he introduced me to the director of Ghost in the Shell, »

23 July 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel Studios may have decided against releasing its D23 and San Diego Comic-Con trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, but sure enough a few sneaky people in Hall H managed to record the footage, and post it online in atrocious quality for all to see. Let’s hope Marvel releases an official version soon, but if you can’t wait, we have it for you here (although it’s probably not going to stay online very long)…

Universal wants Channing Tatum for Van Helsing in the Dark Universe

23 July 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Universal has already assembled plenty of star power for its Dark Universe, and it seems they could be looking to add another A-lister, with THR reporting that Channing Tatum is being eyed for the role of monster hunter Abraham Van Helsing.

Van Helsing made his debut in Bram Stoker’s original Dracula novel, and has made numerous appearances on the big screen, having been portrayed by the likes of Edward Van Sloan, Peter Cushing, Laurence Olivier, Anthony Hopkins, Peter Fonda, Mel Brooks and Christopher Plummer. His last Universal appearance came in 2004’s Van Helsing movie, where he was portrayed by Hugh Jackman.

Should Tatum sign on, he’d join the likes of Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe (The Mummy), Javier Bardem (Frankenstein) and Johnny Depp (The Invisible Man), while Dwayne Johnson, Angelina Jolie and Scarlett Johansson have all been frequently linked to The Wolfman, »

Review: Ghost in the Shell

21 July 2017 10:58 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

While fully aware of Japan’s Ghost in the Shell and its impact as a Manga and Anime, I never experienced any version of it. As a result, I watched the recent live-action film version without preconceived notions. I knew all about the casting controversy but until there’s an actress of Japanese descent who can open a movie wide, casting decisions, such as this, will continue. So get over it.

Masamune Shirow created an interesting meditation on where humanity is going as he, like Ray Kurzweil, foresees the day when man and machine blend into a singular being. It won’t be overnight, nor will it be neat and easy. As a result, the question of what does it mean to be human permeates the film as written by Jamie Moss, William Wheeler, and Ehren Kruger and directed by Rupert Sanders.

The story centers on Major (Scarlett Johansson), an »

'Girls Trip' Review: Comedy About Four Besties in Nola Hits All the Right Notes

21 July 2017 6:17 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Call me surprised with a cherry on top. Girls Trip is not what it looks like on the surface – a black-demo take on Rough Night, Scarlett Johansson's recent white–ish-girls-gone-wild romp in Miami which hit a wall of critical apathy and audience indifference. Not this time. In all the ways ScarJo & co.'s film went wrong (the dead male stripper – ugh!), Malcolm D. Lee's comedy goes hilariously right. Starring Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah and Tiffany Haddish as former college besties doing the reunion thing in New Orleans, »

Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets is writer/director Luc Besson’s latest sci-fi action/adventure film, starring Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne as a team of special agents wisecracking and flirting their way through danger as they race to unravel the puzzle of what or who is threatening to destroy the interstellar city of Alpha. The film also stars Clive Owen, Ethan Hawk and singer Rihanna.

Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets is spectacular visually, with one fabulous, colorful, fantastical vision after another, and the film completely delivers on that level.

The 3D action/adventure film is based on a French sci-fi graphic novel series, “Valerian and Laureline,” or just “Valerian.” The long-running comic series, »

‘Under The Skin’ Visionary Jonathan Glazer Has Finished Writing His Next Movie

20 July 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

English director Jonathan Glazer has been a feature filmmaker since 2000, but he’s only made three movies in 17 years: Breakout debut “Sexy Beast,” the criminally overlooked Nicole Kidman psychodrama “Birth” and the modern classic “Under The Skin.” 9 years separated the releases of his last two movies, so many of us have been worried that it would be another decade until Glazer delivered a follow-up to 2014’s “Under The Skin,” but it appears we won’t have to wait that long after all.

Speaking to the Nottingham Post (via The Playlist) after picking up his honorary doctorate from Nottingham Trent, Glazer revealed he is starting pre-production on his new movie after working on the script for the past year. The screenplay is finished and will mark his first solo outing as a writer. Glazer co-wrote “Under The Skin »

Death Note: Producer Masi Oka Hopped On The Project To Protect It

20 July 2017 9:20 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Death Note has some pretty protective fans. If you don’t believe me, have a look at the like/dislike ratio for the trailer.

While the trailer may not be the greatest thing ever to hit the web, I think it’s fair to say there’s a disproportionate amount of hate on it. This isn’t exactly surprising. Anime fans are a passionate bunch, and earlier this year, we saw one epic case of whitewashing take place with the Scarlett Johansson film, Ghost in the Shell. Death Note faithful are worried that this new adaptation from Adam Wingard will suffer the same fate.

But there is someone who has their back: Japanese American actor Masi Oka. You probably best know him from the TV show Heroes, but he recently took to producing to make sure that Death Note was respected. »

‘Proud Mary’ Trailer: Taraji P. Henson Is the Ass-Kicking Action Star Hollywood Needs Right Now

20 July 2017 8:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Action movies are not usually star vehicles for Hollywood actresses. Charlize Theron in “Atomic Blonde,” Angelina Jolie in “Salt” and Scarlett Johansson in “Lucy” are anomalies when they should be the standard, but Hollywood is slowly coming around to this fact. Case in point: “Proud Mary.” Never in a million years would the old Hollywood guard let the amazing Taraji P. Henson lead an action vehicle as a butt-kicking assassin, but it’s 2017 and we’re more than ready for this.

The Avengers 4 script might not be finished yet according to Josh Brolin

19 July 2017 11:41 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Actor Josh Brolin has said that the screenplay for Avengers 4 may not yet be complete.

Brolin is the man behind the McU’s big bad, Thanos, who will be making his big move in the long awaited Avengers: Infinity War.

Infinity War is set for release on May 4th, 2018, and the sequel to that movie, and the fourth Avengers flick in total, is due out on May 3rd, 2019.

The plot for Avengers 4 is thought to be heavily influenced by the events that will take place in Infinity War, but Brolin has now revealed that the script for that particular movie might still be in the structuring stages.

Speaking to Gma at the D23 Expo, Brolin revealed that even he isn’t sure of what the film will entail.

“I haven’t done the second movie so I don’t know. I literally don’t know what the second script is. »

Dave Bautista praises the Russos’ handling of the Guardians of the Galaxy in Avengers: Infinity War

19 July 2017 9:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following this past weekend’s D23 panel where Marvel unveiled the very first footage from Avengers: Infinity War, Good Morning America caught up with Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista, who was full of praise for directors Anthony and Joe Russo and their handling of Drax and company in the hotly-anticipated superhero epic.

“My biggest, pleasant surprise was working with the Russo brothers,” said Bautista. “I was familiar with their films, but I wasn’t familiar with how they did, you know, things on set, how they directed films. And my big concern crossing over was that someone was going to try to take James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy and turn them into their version of the Guardians of the Galaxy. It worried me a little bit because I had already done two Guardians films and, you know, I knew Drax, I was comfortable with Drax and »

Rumour: Avengers: Infinity War will see Steve Rogers as Nomad

19 July 2017 5:19 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having laid down his shield at the end of Captain America: Civil War, Chris EvansSteve Rogers will reportedly take on a new alias for Avengers: Infinity War, suiting up as Nomad rather than once again taking on the mantle of Captain America.

The rumour comes by way of the folks at McU Exchange, who claim that Joe and Anthony Russo will be taking inspiration from Captain America #180 – #184, where Steve gave up the identity of Captain America and donned the blue and yellow uniform of Nomad, and that his shift for Infinity War “is representative of him no longer looking to follow orders or even give them, but to simply do what he believes is right.” The site also goes on to claim that we won’t be getting an exact duplicate of the comic book costume, but rather one that pays homage to it.

6 Filmmakers Who Launched Massive Female Action Stars

18 July 2017 10:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s unfortunate that Luc Besson’s latest multi-million dollar action spectacle is called “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” because the film is as much about its male hero (the eponymous Valerian, played by Dane DeHaan) as it is about his female partner, Laureline (Cara Delevingne). A long-time passion project of the filmmaker, Besson’s newest feature is based on the French sci-fi comics series “Valérian and Laureline,” written by Pierre Christin and illustrated by Jean-Claude Mézières, a childhood favorite of Besson. Like the series that inspired it, the film follows a pair of “spatio-temporal agents” who are charged with keeping the peace across the universe.

Valerian may get title billing, but both DeHaan and Delevingne’s characters exist on very equal footing. Most of the time, it’s actually Laureline who saves the day when the notoriously hot-headed Valerian goes off the rails and biffs yet another important mission. »
