Scarlett Johansson Sports a New Large Back Tattoo-But Is It Real?

10 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Scarlett Johansson may have just gotten some new ink.  The actress stepped out in Atlanta on Monday sporting some serious body art crawling across her upper back while in casual clothes. The Golden Globe nominee was spotted ahead of shooting, perhaps for the fourth installment of the Avengers franchise. While little is known about the upcoming film, aside from newly released set photos that confirm a trip to Japan will take place, it seems Black Widow may have an elaborate tattoo in her future—or at least hiding underneath her signature bodysuit.  While it's unclear whether the ink is permanent or a temporary accessory for the shoot, Johansson is certainly no stranger to tattoo »

Paul Bettany on Avengers: Infinity War: “It felt like the biggest movie that I’ll ever make”

16 August 2017 5:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Avengers: Infinity War is a huge milestone for Marvel Studios. What tentatively started with Jon Favreau’s Iron Man, and successfully branched out with 2012’s The Avengers, has blossomed into a lucrative, interwoven, and exciting Cinematic Universe. All this… every character and event so far… has been leading up to a climactic battle with Thanos. Avengers: Infinity War promises to bring every story thread together, and unite all the heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to go to war.

Understandably, actually being in the film must be pretty unbelievable. Talking to Collider, The Vision actor Paul Bettany expressed his awe over the sheer scale of the upcoming Marvel film:

“It felt like the biggest movie that I’ve ever made and will ever make, and we’ve still got to make the [next] one. It’s fucking crazy! I would come in, often at dawn because of the length of my make-up, »

Black Widow Rumored To Be Involved In Avengers 4’s Yakuza Scene

15 August 2017 9:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Principal photography on Avengers 4 is officially underway, that much we know, but beyond alleged roll calls and rumors surrounding Marvel’s vague plans for Phase 4 – a Phase that will purportedly be shaped by the untitled Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel – Joe and Anthony Russo’s 2019 blockbuster is being kept under lock and key.

In the eyes of ardent fans, that’s both a blessing and a curse, and maintaining some semblance of secrecy simply means that we’ll just have to wait that little bit longer before our burning questions are answered.

But regardless of which side of the fence you find yourself on – the rumormonger; or the spoiler-sensitive that avoids all speculation as though it were the plague – the Marvel rumor mill is an unrelenting machine that tends to operate 24/7, and the latest purported tidbit for Avengers 4 comes to us by way of Omega Underground. Spoilers: it centers on Scarlett Johansson »

Samuel L. Jackson is yet to sign on to Captain Marvel, says Nick Fury isn’t in Avengers: Infinity War

15 August 2017 3:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel’s Kevin Feige revealed that Nick Fury will be appearing in 2019’s Captain Marvel movie, and – give that it’s set in the 1990s – the former head of S.H.I.E.L.D. will have both eyes.

Well, it seems that Samuel L. Jackson is yet to sign on to the project, with the actor telling Yahooo! that: “I haven’t signed a contract, haven’t seen a script. I talked to Brie Larson the other day, she didn’t say anything. She’s the only person I know that’s actually in the movie.”

Meanwhile, in some rather surprising news, Jackson has also suggested that Nick Fury won’t be appearing in Avengers: Infinity War and its as-yet-untitled sequel (despite rumours of him being on set during the Durham Cathedral shoot):

Avengers: Infinity War will see Nebula confront her past, says Karen Gillan

14 August 2017 1:18 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Given her relationship to Thanos (and her key role in The Infinity Gauntlet comic book storyline), it seems pretty safe to say that the character of Nebula is likely to enjoy some big moments in Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War. And now actress Karen Gillan has revealed that the upcoming superhero epic will explore her character’s background, and see her confronting her issues head on.

“Without giving away any spoilers, we’re definitely going to continue the arc for Nebula and find out more about her past,” said Gillan in an interview with Comic Book. “And actually, we’re going to find out that it’s even worse than we know. We’re going to see her confront all of it. It’s going to be like an emotional explosion.”

As we know, Nebula has endured years of physical and mental abuse at the hands of Thanos, and is »

Luc Besson Says That Captain America Is ‘Propaganda’: ‘It’s Always Here to Show the Supremacy of America’

13 August 2017 11:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Luc Besson isn’t the biggest fan of superhero movies. The “Valerian” director, who’s previously said that he finds it difficult to relate to such characters, went further in a CinePop interview by calling Captain America “propaganda” that’s uniquely American — and not in a good way. Watch the full discussion below.

“What bothers me most is it’s always here to show the supremacy of America and how they are great,” he said. “I mean, which country in the world would have the guts to call a film ‘Captain Brazil’ or ‘Captain France’? I mean, no one! We would be like so ashamed and say, ‘No, no, come on, we can’t do that.’ They can. They can call it ‘Captain America’ and everybody think it’s normal. »

Studios Released Just 7 Films Directed By Women This Summer, and They Might Break the Billion-Dollar Mark

11 August 2017 10:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present, and future.

Thank Patty Jenkins — and then thank all the other wonder women who lit up this summer at the box office. This summer, studios released only seven films directed by women (that’s including speciality arms, and even a co-directed production), but the massive success of Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman” is poised to push the total take of female-directed studio films over $1 billion.

Nothing sings quite like “a billion dollars” in Hollywood, but what’s even more heartening is the variety of films in this small group.

Wonder Woman” is the story of the summer, an $800 million superhero that established Jenkins’ supremacy as director of the highest-grossing live-action movie directed by a woman and reestablished the solvency of the creatively stifled Dceu. It also made plain just how desperate audiences are for female-focused blockbusters. The film stayed in »

‘Baby Boss’ Stays Atop Disc Charts, ‘Going in Style’ Bows at No. 2

11 August 2017 9:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Boss Baby,” the computer-animated comedy from DreamWorks Animation that earned nearly $175 million in U.S. theaters, held onto the No. 1 spot on both national home video sales charts for the second consecutive week.

The Warner comedy “Going in Style” – a remake of the 1979 heist film, with a domestic gross of just $45 million despite a cast that includes Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine – debuted at No. 2 the week ended Aug. 5 on the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales.

On Npd’s Blu-ray Disc sales chart, Paramount’s “Ghost in the Shell,” a sci-fi action film starring Scarlett Johansson and based on the Japanese manga of the same name, remained at No. 2.

Npd statistics show that “Boss Baby,” distributed on home video by 20th Century Fox, sold more than twice as many discs its second week in stores as “Going in Style” did in its first week of availability.

Avengers 4 Begins Shooting, First Set Photo Arrives

10 August 2017 6:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Filming wrapped for Avengers: Infinity War about a month ago and now filming has officially started on Avengers 4 in Atlanta. The movie is still currently untitled, but it will hit theaters a year after Infinity War to cap off the Marvel Cinematic Universe's "Phase Three," aka the McU as we know it. After Avengers 4, the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming will help usher in the newest phase of the McU, which is expected to give us new superheroes to follow.

The Russo Brothers announced that filming had begun with a simple picture and message. The Russo Brothers official Facebook page posted a picture of a glove with a caption that read: "The beginning of the end." The news comes after Josh Brolin announced that he was heading back to Atlanta to shoot some more footage of Thanos and after Joe Russo announced at San Diego Comic-Con that principle photography was to begin around this time. »

Avengers 4 begins production today

10 August 2017 1:01 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Though we are still months away from the release of Avengers: Infinity War, directors Anthony and Joe Russo and Marvel are already working on the currently untitled Avengers 4. In fact, the Russo Brothers revealed on their Facebook page that they are “beginning the end” today.

Not much is revealed in the photo other than a big purple glove. Avengers 4 was previously titled Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2, but whether or not Marvel slightly changed their plans for the fourth film or will draw on something else remains to be seen. Avengers 4 will, however, cap off Marvel’s Phase Three set of films and everything the studio has been building towards since 2012’s Avengers and even 2008’s Iron Man.

The remaining Phase Three films that will be released in between the two Avengers films are Ant-Man & The Wasp, which will be released on July 6, 2018, and Captain Marvel on March 9, 2019. Post-Avengers 4 is mostly unknown, »

Each release will receive a quick take from one or more of the Cinema Geeks crew.

All Eyez on Me

OptimusSolo’s thoughts:

I came into this year thinking All Eyez on Me had the potential to be this years Straight Outta Compton and boy was I wrong. This movie lacked focus in the worst way and instead fell into the same traps we have seen so many other biopics succumb to over the years. Instead of focusing on one specific event or »

Why the Woody Allen ‘Difficult People’ Parody Exposes the Power of His Legacy

9 August 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The news cycle surrounding Woody Allen these days tends to go as follows: Reminder of previous allegations, followed by announcement of new film, followed by talent in new project being asked about allegations, followed by new film receiving either critical acclaim or relative indifference, followed by new reminder of previous allegations.

Right now, we’re in the “announcement of new film” phase, with Tuesday’s casting of Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning, and Selena Gomez in Allen’s upcoming untitled feature film. But that same morning, Hulu premiered the most savage takedown yet of not just Woody Allen’s modern day work as an auteur, but the cult of personality around him.

Difficult People” in general and creator Julie Klausner in particular have never been shy about poking fun at certain topics the rest of Hollywood might consider taboo. Just consider the metric ton of jokes about Kevin Spacey’s sexuality »

Karen Gillan says Nebula has a new “Bff” in Avengers: Infinity War

9 August 2017 3:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Avengers: Infinity War having wrapped filming and the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4 due to start production this month, we’re starting to get a few minor details on the upcoming superhero blockbuster.

Actress Karen Gillan has been discussing how her character Nebula (the daughter of the movies’ big bad villain Thanos, who started out evil and eventually ended up somewhat siding with the Guardians of the Galaxy) will have a new partner of sorts in next year’s Infinity War.

Speaking to Fandango, Gillan shared: “I know who her new Bff is, and I can’t tell you. I can’t. I promise you it’s brilliant and unexpected and just so good… I don’t know about any frenemies. She is on a clear mission, as everybody is, to deal with someone with a glove, and I think that is the most important issue. So I think people are grouping »

How Elle Fanning and Selena Gomez Should Handle the Woody Allen Backlash Coming Their Way

8 August 2017 4:17 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When word came down that Woody Allen’s next film would star actress of the moment Elle Fanning, beloved singer-turned-actress Selena Gomez, and “Call Me By Your Name” star Timothée Chalamet, the responses were — like any news involving the controversial filmmaker — divided.

Allen has always been a fan of fresh young talent, casting Diane Keaton, Mariel Hemingway, and Scarlett Johansson in important early roles. As prolific as he is provocative, the list of Hollywood actors he has worked with feels longer than those he hasn’t. More recently, he has a knack for picking promising young stars when they are most in demand, such as Jesse Eisenberg, Evan Rachel Wood, Ellen Page, and Kristin Stewart.
