'Battle Angel Alita' learns nothing, casts non-Asian actress as the lead

20 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With 8 million Avatar sequels on his plate, one might think James Cameron would let go of his attempt to make Battle Angel Alita. But the thing about passion projects is their champions are pretty passionate. Back in April, Cameron handed off the directorial reins to Robert Rodriguez (Sin City: A Dame To Kill For). Now the first actor has been cast. As first reported by Collider, Rosa Salazar (Insurgent) has been cast as the title character of Alita. Not a complete surprise as she was on the shortlist with Zendaya and Maika Monroe. But considering we’re still in the throes of finally dealing with the erasure of Asian actors in Hollywood, a disappointing result nonetheless. If you missed the many kerfuffles, a bit of a recap. First, there was the attempt to get #AsianAmericanIronFist going. While I doubt many folks expected it to happen, it did open the door »

21 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From the movie review site, TheGoodTheBadandtheUgly.Ca, take a look @ "...the good, the bad and the ugly..." in Marvel Studios "Captain America: Civil War":

Michael Stevens, Sneakpeek.CA

For The Good

"Rated PG-13 for extended sequences of violence, action and 'mayhem',  Marvel Studios' 'Captain America: Civil War' finds 'Steve Rogers' (Chris Evans)  leading a new team of 'Avengers' in a 'Bourne'-looking, globe-hopping, bone-crunching follow-up to 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' (2014)...

"...integrating more Marvel superheroes into the cinematic universe including noble savage 'Black Panther' (Chadwick Boseman)...

"...and teenage, geeky 'Spider-Man' (Tom Holland).

"With frantic fighting sequences inspired by Jack Kirby, 'Cap' (Evans) engages like there's no tomorrow...

"...crashing through windows while bouncing his bullet-ricocheting shield off floors and walls...

"...skull-fracturing hordes of baddies, effortlessly somersaulting, breakfalling, kicking and punching his way through the throng. 

"'Steve Rogers', that skinny scrappy kid, »

If Asian-Americans are hardly visible in pop culture, rarely considered for “normal” roles, and whitewashed out of the movies by the likes of Tilda Swinton, Emma Stone, and Scarlett Johansson, Asian-American culture is even harder to find onscreen.

Ghost in the Shell Lands Wolverine Star Rila Fukushima

25 May 2016 4:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans have been clamoring for a live action adaptation of the manga series Ghost in the Shell for a very long time, and they are finally getting it next year. Though the producers of the film have come under fire for some of their casting choices, they are making a step in what seems to be the right direction. Rila Fukushima, who starred alongside Hugh Jackman in The Wolverine, has been added to the cast of the film.

The casting news comes from THR, though the report wasn't able to confirm who she will be playing.

Arrow And Wolverine Actress Rila Fukushima Boards Ghost In The Shell

25 May 2016 2:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that Rila Fukushima has closed a deal to join Paramount’s live-action rendition of Ghost in the Shell.

Best known for her involvement across both Wolverine and Arrow, the outlet didn’t disclose which character Fukushima would be playing in the 2017 feature, but news of a Japanese actress being drafted in for the high-profile adaptation is certainly promising, even if skeptics still lambaste Ghost in the Shell for whitewashing its preliminary cast.

Whatever your stance, in light of today’s casting, that ensemble now includes Scarlett Johansson in the role of the Major, a deadly human-cyborg who spearheads an elite task force known as Section 9. Meanwhile, there’s also parts for Michael Pitt as key villain The Laughing Man, Beat Takeshi Kitano as Daisuke Aramaki and Juliette Binoche as Dr. Ouelet. Game of ThronesPilou Asbaek also stars along with Chin Han, Danusia Samal, »

Ghost In The Shell Just Added A Wolverine Actress

25 May 2016 12:32 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Few recently announced movies have garnered the same degree of controversy as Ghost in the Shell. An adaptation of a wildly popular Japanese Manga, the upcoming movie drew immense criticism for casting white actress Scarlett Johansson in the lead role. Although much of the news related to the upcoming movie has seemed overwhelmingly negative, we have just learned of a new casting update that should hopefully less please anyone who has kept tabs on the upcoming film.   According to a brand new report from THR, it seems that the upcoming Ghost in the Shell adaptation has tapped actress Rila Fukushima for a role in the film. Although the nature of her role has not been disclosed at this time, her physicality and versatility in action sequences leads us to believe that her part in the film will be incredibly physical and action-heavy.
