Less than a month after Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown joined the cast of Warner Bros. and Legendary's sequel Godzilla: King of Monsters, another Netflix star has come aboard. Kyle Chandler, who stars in the streaming service's hit drama series Bloodline, has signed on to play the father of Millie Bobby Brown's character. No details have been given for this father-daughter duo quite yet, but we could learn more soon since production will begin in the next few months.
Variety broke the news of this casting, along with the news that several of the original Godzilla stars such as Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson will not be back for this sequel, although Ken Watanabe is expected to reprise his role as scientist Ishiro Serizawa. His inclusion does make sense, since he is part of the Monarch organization, which is also featured in the upcoming Kong: Skull Island »

Emma Watson is further proving that she is perfect for the role of Belle in the live-action remake of the 1991 Disney animated film. From the costume, to her sweet voice, Watson is a spitting image of the animated Belle - minus the whole animated part - and the nostalgia is off the charts!
This live-action adaption from the 1991 Disney animated film follows the same story-line, has the same iconic music, and brings our favourite characters to life, but we bet there will »

Reilly, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Tian Jing, Corey Hawkins, Jason […] »

“I’ve never been more appreciative, humbled and just overall excited about the fact that I’ve been nominated,” says Hacksaw Ridge sound mixer Kevin O’Connell of his 21st Oscar nomination — which he shares with Peter Grace, Robert Mackenzie and Andy Wright — as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of THR‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “I don’t want to say I took it for granted in the past, but I certainly don’t take it for granted anymore.”
O’Connell, 59, has worked in Hollywood for nearly 40 years, and is one of the most respected practitioners of his craft. But he is best known for a dubious distinction: in Oscar history, no person has accumulated more nominations without ever winning. His noms span 33 years, from 1983’s Terms of Endearment through Mel Gibson‘s 2016 war film, »

“People want something that’s different than everything else that’s out there,” says Damien Chazelle, the writer and director of the massively acclaimed original musical La La Land, as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of the ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast and try to get to the root of the phenomenal success of the film. Indeed, Chazelle’s bold third feature is beloved by critics (it has a 93% favorable rating on RottenTomatoes.com), audiences (it has grossed more than $340 million worldwide) and Academy members (it has been nominated for a record-tying 14 Oscars). The 32-year-old himself is Oscar-nominated for best director and best original screenplay, and if he wins the former, as is widely expected, he will break an 85-year-old record and become the category’s youngest winner ever.

Disney’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” generated 101,000 new conversations last week as director Rian Johnson offered details on Feb. 15 about the movie, explaining that the story will resume from the end of “Star Wars: »

Brie Larson has a big year ahead of her.
The Oscar-winning actress has quite a few films lined up for 2017 including Kong: Skull Island, The Glass Castle, her directorial debut Unicorn Store, and the highly anticipated new film from Ben Wheatley, Free Fire.
We caught Free Fire at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and can whole-heartedly say it's a super fun time at the movies. The film is set in a warehouse in Boston in 1978, where two gangs participating in a weapons sale end up in an epic shooting battle. Violent, vulgar and outrageous, Free Fire is probably Wheatley's most accessible film to date.
We caught up with Larson and her co-stars as well as »

Sneak Peek Marvel Comics' "The Mighty Captain Marvel" #2, written by Margaret Stohl and illustrated by Ramon Rosanas, with covers by Elizabeth Torque, Mike McKone and Joe Jusko, available February 22, 2017, in support of Marvel Studios' upcoming "Captain Marvel" stand-alone feature film, starring Brie Larson ("Room") as 'Carol Danvers':
"...for someone like 'Carol Danvers', being super famous isn't exactly enjoyable -- she'd rather be focused on her job as commander of 'Alpha Flight Space Station' than worried about who's playing her on the new 'Captain Marvel TV' show.
"So when her crew discovers that a shady character is hunting for alien children, Carol jumps on the case..."

“I have this fundamental block — maybe I’ll always have it, maybe I’ll get past it — but I am essentially Chiron, I grew up like this kid and there are just certain ceilings that I never can imagine myself breaking through,” says Barry Jenkins, the writer and director of Moonlight, as we sit down in his downtown Los Angeles apartment to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “When they happen,” the 37-year-old continues, “they genuinely are an extreme surprise. And for whatever reason, I can’t get through this block that Chiron does not grow up and make a film that gets eight Academy Award nominations.” He then pauses, smiles and quietly adds, “But I guess he does.”

In just a few short weeks, Legendary will launch the epic second chapter in their burgeoning MonsterVerse with Jordan Vogt-Roberts' Kong: Skull Island, a film that should firmly re-establish King Kong as one of cinema's greatest monsters. In other news, it appears as though Brie Larson (Captain Marvel) will not reprise her role as Mason Weaver in 2020's Godzilla vs. Kong. On the recent press tour for her upcoming film, she shared the news with Nuke The Fridge with a simple "No, I"m not" when asked about her potential involvement. This probably shouldn't come as a huge surprise as Skull Island takes place in 1973 and the crossover movie will likely take place in present day. Check out fifty-five magnificent new hi-resolution stills below: Kong: Skull Island reimagines the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts.

Having sat out Captain America: Civil War, Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury will make his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe next year as part of Avengers: Infinity War, and the star has been chatting to We Got This Covered about whether we can expect to see him popping up anywhere else in Phase Three.
“I’d love to do a Nick Fury movie,” said Jackson. “I’m always open and game. But they got Infinity Wars, two movies to do there, and after that there’s Brie Larson’s movie Captain Marvel, which maybe Nick will be part of. Also, I asked them, ‘So you’re doing Black Panther and the only black character in the Marvel Universe is not showing up?’ And they’re like, ‘Nick Fury is not in Wakanda!’ How can he not know the other black superhero on the planet? How the hell does that work? »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe can be a complicated place to keep track of, with so many characters bouncing in and out of various films. One of the major players is Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, who was first introduced in the now-infamous post-credit scene in the very first McU movie, Iron Man. Fans last saw Nick Fury in 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron, although he skipped out on Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange. There are rumors he may be appearing in Thor: Ragnarok, though that seems unlikely since most of the movie is believed to be set in the cosmos. Surprisingly, the actor revealed that his beloved Nick Fury character actually won't be showing up in Black Panther. Instead, he'll probably be making his presence known in Captain Marvel. And he's definitely in Infinity War.
Black Panther recently started filming, but when the full cast list was unveiled last month, »
Marvel has a big year planned for 2017, both behind the scenes and in theaters. Right now, Avengers: Infinity War is shooting in Atlanta back-to-back with Black Panther. And they have Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok coming to a multiplex near you in the months ahead. So we're going to be bombarded with various items from all five movies in what is being called a superhero tsunami. Today, we get a new logo for Infinity War.
This logo was spotted on the back of a crew chair on set in Atalanta as shooting continues, and shared on Reddit. The cast for the movie is quite epic and features McU stars such as Josh Brolin (Thanos), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Sebastian Stan (Bucky/Winter Soldier), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Chris Evans (Captain America/Steve Rogers), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet »
Some Marvel fans were surprised, even shocked, when the official cast list for Black Panther was announced, and Samuel L. Jackson's name was no where to be seen. But perhaps, no one was quite as shocked and surprised as the man himself. Jackson has recently been out and about promoting his co-starring role in Kong: Skull Island, and he made it clear that he was just as stumped by Nick Fury not making the cut for Black Panther as everyone else.
Samuel L. Jackson recently sat down with We Got This Covered, when the subject of the Marvel Cinematic Universe came up. It isn't really known where Jackson's Nick Fury might pop up next. Though many have suspected he'll return for the epic 2-Part ensemble Avengers: Infinity War, which is said to be bringing back every surviving character previously seen in the McU.
Jackson confirms that he will be in Infinity War. »
We're nearing the grand finale of award season: the Oscars. Last year, Brie Larson emerged as a triple threat after her stunning performance in Room; Larson got all three big awards under her belt (gown?). On the actor side, Leo had a similar story when it came to his role in The Revenant. It's an impressive accomplishment, but these two are hardly the first ones to take home the Oscar/Golden Globe/SAG Award triple crown - it's happened more times than you might think. Just check out these famous ladies who walked away triple winners. - Additional reporting by Maggie Pehanick and Quinn Keaney Related:Triple Threat: 22 Actors Who Swept Award Season22 Movies You Absolutely Won't Believe Were Nominated For an OscarAward Season Scorecard: How Many Wins and Nominations the Biggest Movies Have So Far »

With just a few weeks left until the March 10 release of Kong: Skull Island, Warner Bros. has unleashed an action-packed new clip, which shows King Kong springing into action against one of the vicious Skull Crawlers. If that wasn't enough, we also have an IMAX featurette, where we hear from stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and Jason Mitchell. The video also features Samuel L. Jackson, who compares his character Preston Packard to Ahab from Moby Dick, with King Kong serving as his "white whale." Brie Larson adds how happy she is that they have the "biggest King Kong of them all," which has been teased by director Jordan Vogt-Roberts in the past.
Warner Bros. debuted this clip earlier today, with Fandango premiering the IMAX featurette, which includes plenty of new footage of some of the other creatures on Skull Island. While Kong is certainly king on this island, there are »
The third and final Wolverine film is a poignant study of ageing and infirmity, as the arthritic mutant holes up in Mexico with a declining Professor Xavier
Superpowers are one thing, but no-one said they were immortal. What happens when superheroes get old? Actually, what happens when, like many non-superheroes, they arrive at late middle-age without a partner, in ill health, and with an ageing parent to look after? Or parent-figure anyway. You find yourself asking these questions watching this surprisingly engaging, but downbeat – and also violent – X-Men movie from the Marvel stable. It is more like a survivalist thriller than a superhero film, and signals its wintry quality with the title itself. It’s like seeing a film entitled Banner or Parker or Kent. With the approach of death, maybe super identity is cast off. Superpowers start to fade along with ordinary powers.

The Oscars are the grand finale of award season, and this year, we have more to look forward to than ever. La La Land is up for an astonishing (and recording-tying) 14 awards, Viola Davis has already broken a record, and unless one of them doesn't show up for their nominated categories, ex-couple Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield will be in the same place at the same time.
