California Production Tax Credit Boosts Below-the-Line Work by 12% in 2016

17 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

California’s below-the-line entertainment industry employees saw a 12% hike in hours worked in 2016, compared with 2014, the state’s film commission reported Monday.

The commission said the hike was due to the expansion of the state’s Film and Television Tax Credit Program, which is aimed at halting the erosion of California-based production to states with bigger incentives, such as Georgia and New York. The annual allocation was increased during the 2015-16 fiscal year from $100 million to $330 million, and applications are ranked on how many jobs they will produce, rather than being selected by lottery.

The report said the expanded Program 2.0 has attracted or retained 100 film and television projects generating an estimated $3.7 billion in direct in-state spending, including $1.4 billion in below-the-line wages.

“The encouraging short-term results we reported in last year’s annual report have evolved into sustained and very encouraging long-term results for Program 2.0,” said California Film Commission Executive Director Amy Lemisch. “The »

Hayley Atwell sparks speculation about Peggy Carter return in Avengers 4

24 September 2017 6:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past few days we’ve had confirmation of a number of stars for the currently-in-production Avengers 4 – including Don Cheadle (War Machine), Sebastian Stan (The Winter Soldier) and Brie Larson (Captain Marvel) – and now Hayley Atwell has sparked speculation that she could be set for a return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Peggy Carter.

Atwell shared the following image to her Instagram account, complete with curlers in her hair and tracking dots across her face…

Given Marvel’s penchant for digitally de-aging and aging its stars using CGI, it’s possible that Atwell is teasing playing an older version of Peggy. Adding further fuel to the fire is a recent casting call for Avengers: Infinity War, which was seeking secretaries and female engineers for a small scene believed to take place in the 1960s. Of course, this may be for another project entirely, but with the scenes in »

New Avengers: Infinity War Posters Continue To Tease Us

23 September 2017 4:26 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Is there a bigger, more impressive blockbuster currently in the works than Avengers: Infinity War?

Sure, you have Warner’s imminent Justice League and the mooted Godzilla Vs. Kong, but in the realm of Hollywood’s shared universes, Infinity War stands head and burly shoulders above the rest because it’s about to execute on a vision that began almost ten years ago with the release of Jon Favreau’s Iron Man. Toss in a post-credits scene with Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, now an McU mainstay, and the rest is history.

Indeed, when counting the yet-to-be-released Thor: Ragnarok and Ryan Coogler’s Black PantherAvengers: Infinity War will be the 19th instalment in Marvel’s grand universe, with everyone involved deeming Iw to be a superhero movie unlike any other. And even from the outside looking in, few would contest such a tantalizing claim.

But with the flick just eight months away now, »

Brie Larson wants to direct a Marvel Studios movie

23 September 2017 3:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having recently expressed how impressed she has been working with Marvel Studios on the upcoming Captain Marvel movie (and Avengers 4, which she is confirmed to have started shooting), Oscar-winner Brie Larson has now revealed her ambition to get behind the camera and direct a Marvel movie.

“Oh yeah, that’s my plan,” said Larson when asked by The Huffington Post if she could see herself directing a Marvel movie. “Why not? My new life philosophy is I’m not going to tell myself no. I’m just going to do stuff until someone else tells me no.”

Brie Larson Has Her Sights Set On Directing A Marvel Movie

22 September 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Thanks to giant franchises – like Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, specifically – we’ve now become accustomed to the ‘Lack Of Female Directors Explanation’ that’s so often trotted out by senior production executives: ‘Hiring a woman director is a priority for us, but we have to find one who wants to do it, and has experience before we hand them a giant movie.’ This is a frustrating response to calls for more women at the helm, not least because the same criteria doesn’t always apply to male directors hired by these studios. Now, though, it seems that Captain Marvel star Brie Larson could be the perfect answer to that standard delaying tactic.

The Academy Award winning actress has just made her feature length directorial debut with Unicorn Store. The independent comedy – written by Samantha McIntyre – has been highly praised by audiences and critics alike, following its screenings »

Benedict Cumberbatch on what to expect from Avengers: Infinity War

21 September 2017 1:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Benedict Cumberbatch has told fans what to expect when Avengers: Infinity War releases.

Even though it won’t be released until April 2018, talk regarding the next Avengers movie is as prevalent as ever. Every man and his dog wants to know just what to expect from what will likely be one of the biggest blockbusters ever made, and this is just what Doctor Strange himself, Benedict Cumberbatch, says to expect.

Speaking to Digital Spy, the English actor said: “It’s ten years coming. It’s just a huge, huge, huge amount of work, huge amount of storylines and it’s all sort of pointing to this confrontation….It’s amazing to be part of it even though I’m late to the party, it’s very cool to be part of it.”

So, not much there from Cumberbatch in terms of details or juicy plot spoilers but it’s good »

Sebastian Stan confirms Winter Soldier return in Avengers 4

21 September 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past few days we’ve heard confirmation that Chris Evans (Captain America), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel) and Don Cheadle (War Machine) are all set to feature in the currently-in-production Avengers 4, and now Sebastian Stan has revealed that he’ll also be back as The Winter Soldier in the currently untitled sequel.

“I still haven’t read a script for this next one,” Stan told CinemaBlend. “For this fourth one. All I know is I’m going down there in October, and that’s all I know. I still actually haven’t read a script for the last one. All I knew was what I was involved in, and I was kept on a very ‘need to know’ basis. Maybe that’s the norm. But it’s a family system. There’s a trust, and there’s a sense of knowledge between the writers and the directors, with Kevin Feige, »

Cumberbatch Hypes Infinity War as the Greatest Marvel Movie Ever

21 September 2017 9:59 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last year, Avengers: Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo revealed that this movie marked a new beginning for the McU, hinting that it, and the untitled Avengers 4, will bring the culmination of everything that has happened in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date. While no specifics were given about the story, this notion was mirrored by star Benedict Cumberbatch, who teased how massive this adventure is during a recent interview. Here's what he had to say about how all-encompassing this sequel actually is.

"It's ten years coming. It's just a huge, huge, huge amount of work, huge amount of storylines and it's all sort of pointing to this confrontation. It's amazing to part of it even though I'm late to the party, it's very cool one to be part of it."

The actor made these comments during a new interview with Digital Spy, where he was promoting his new film The Child in Time. »

Gwyneth Paltrow confirms Don Cheadle’s Avengers 4 return

21 September 2017 6:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Avengers: Infinity War is still a good few months away from release, but Avengers 4 is already underway with several actors already confirming that they have been on set. One such actress is Gwyneth Paltrow — who plays Tony’s eternal flame Pepper Potts — and the actress recently let slip the return of another major character for the fourth Avengers film. Chatting with THR, Paltrow spilled the beans:

“I went to Atlanta to do Avengers 4, so I’m in and out for that, and it’s weird to go back and forth. We’re growing fast, and balls are dropping all the time. But honestly, I was on set and thought, “You sit here for two hours sipping tea, Robert Downey Jr. and Don Cheadle are making me laugh hysterically — why the hell did I give this up?”

Approaching Avengers: Infinity War has felt  a lot like prepping for Game of Thrones. »

At Least One Classic Avenger Will Survive Infinity War

20 September 2017 2:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Some newly leaked photographs from the set of Avengers 4 show that Brie Larson will be bringing Captain Marvel to the upcoming second installment of Infinity War as well as showing off that Captain America will apparently make it through the first round of battles with Thanos. We do know that Avengers: Infinity War will have some deaths of some pretty big Marvel characters that will also coincidentally fall in line with when some of those actors portraying those characters will come to the end of their contracts, but nothing has been officially confirmed as of yet. We may get a hint when the new trailer drops, which could possibly be next week.

The new photos from the set of Avengers 4 come to us via Just Jared and they feature Brie Larson and Chris Evans arriving in Atlanta for filming of the movie. The next two installments of the Avengers franchise »

20 September 2017 1:16 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Since few celebrities aim to make it into a Fashion Faceoff, a piece has to be pretty special to make multiple appearances on multiple stars. Seeing a gorgeous shoe or a great pair of jeans on two stars piques our interest. Seeing an item on three celebrities gets a place in our Déja Vu gallery. But for the same piece to make it onto 11 of the biggest names in Hollywood? It’s almost unheard of – which means that the A.L.C. “Ali” top has officially achieved legendary status.

Brie Larson: Women Directing Feminine Movies Are ‘Radical’ (Video)

19 September 2017 11:23 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The few female directors that Hollywood employs are too-often forced to work in male-driven content spaces, director Brie Larson told TheWrap. The Oscar winner’s directorial effort “Unicorn Store,” an official selection at last week’s Toronto International Film Festival, is “radical” in its decided femaleness, she said. “There are a lot of aspects that I find totally radical. I think for a female filmmaker to make a film that’s very feminine, that is kind of an interesting take … we don’t have a lot of that,” Larson said. Also Read: Brie Larson's 'Captain Marvel' Finds »

Captain Marvel Confirmed for Avengers 4 as Brie Larson Begins Shooting

18 September 2017 10:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Avengers 4 continuing production in Atlanta this week, a new report confirms the inclusion of a character most expected to see in this movie, Brie Larson's Captain Marvel. Ever since Avengers 4 started shooting in Atlanta last month, a few set photos have leaked from the set, and while we don't have any actual images of Brie Larson on the set, now that it has been revealed she's part of the production, it's possible we may get our first glimpse at the actress in costume later this week.

Atlanta Filming Twitter reports that both Brie Larson and Chris Evans were spotted in town, presumably on set, although there are no photos of either actor quite yet. You may recall there was a report from July that revealed Captain Marvel will not appear in Avengers: Infinity War, which came just after production wrapped on that movie. That information came directly from »

Captain Marvel enlists Oscar-nominated production designer

15 September 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck on board to direct, and Geneva Robertson-Dworet working on a new draft of the script, the crew for Captain Marvel continues to expand, with Marvel bringing on board Oscar-nominated production designer Andy Nicholson for Carol Danvers’ big screen debut.

Nicholson has previously worked with Marvel Studios on Captain America: The First Avenger, where he served as supervising art director, while his production design credits include The Host, Divergent, Assassin’s Creed and the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. He also received an Academy Award nomination for his work on Gravity, which should certainly put him in good stead for Carol’s cosmic adventure.
