‘War for the Planet of the Apes’: Fox Debuts Extended Look at Matt Reeves’ Gritty, Western-Influenced New Sequel

6 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

War! What is it good for? Absolutely noth– or, actually, for perhaps for bringing out the darker instincts of both man and beast.

Earlier this week, 20th Century Fox rolled out a special showcase of sneak peeks of their upcoming 2017 slate for a group of New York City film journalists and critics, including a new look at Matt Reeves’ upcoming “War for the Planet of the Apes.” The studio and director previously bowed new footage at New York Comic-Con back in October, but their showcase reel added in two entirely new scenes, one of which is currently set to serve as the summer film’s big opening number.

And it’s definitely big.

Picking up two years after the action of 2014’s “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” the new film finds Caesar (Andy Serkis) not only living amongst his wild ape brethren, but continuing to lead them as »

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

Four days later, and you've finally picked your winner. Like we said before in our initial post, it's been a tremendous year for red carpet style. We pit so many incredible fashion moments against each other—like Ciara's ruffle-licious Roberto Cavalli dress vs. Beyoncé's latex Givenchy number, Lily Collins' couture Valentino vs. Selena Gomez's Prada and Julianne Moore's incredible sequined maxi vs. Brie Larson's uber-feminine Oscars look—and you rose to the challenge by picking (or rather polling) an ultimate red carpet champion. After additionally ruling out Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Taraji P. Henson, Jennifer Lawrence, Lily Collins and even Bella »

“It was Thanksgiving,” says Sting, the legendary singer-songwriter-bassist, as we sit down in Malibu to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “I was sitting with my kids around the table and I thought, ‘Well, God, if one of my kids was in captivity, how would I feel and what would I do? I’d probably set a place for them — a chair and a place-setting to honor them — in the hope that they’d fill it at some point.’ And then, once I’d thought of that, I went, ‘Oh, that’s the metaphor!'”

Days earlier, the 65-year-old Brit, who became world-famous as the frontman for the punk rock band The Police nearly 40 years ago before embarking on a hugely successful solo career, had been approached by J. Ralph, a twice Oscar-nominated songwriter, about »

“I felt like I was kind of good at it and I was like, ‘Well, I’ll just stick with things that I’m good at,’ because I wasn’t really good at anything else,” Adam Driver says of his foray into acting during high school as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter‘s offices to record an episode of THR‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. Clearly, Driver’s instinct was sound, because today he is one of the most respected and in-demand actors of his generation.

Mid-day on Sunday, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association chose the 33-year-old as 2016’s best actor for his portrayal of a bus driver/poet in Jim Jarmusch‘s indie Paterson. Later in the afternoon, Paramount unveiled Martin Scorsese‘s latest, Silence, for which Driver dropped 51 pounds to portray a 17th century Jesuit priest. »

How to Train Your Dragon 3 Delayed, Gets New 2019 Release Date

5 December 2016 5:22 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For those waiting for the next animated adventure of Hiccup and Toothless in How to Train Your Dragon 3, you'll have to wait nearly one year longer. DreamWorks Animation revealed today that it has pushed the animated sequel from May 18, 2018 to March 1, 2019, where it currently has that particular weekend all to itself. It will, however, debut just one week before Marvel's long-awaited Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, and two weeks after an untitled Universal monsters reboot project. Take a look at the new plot synopsis for How to Train Your Dragon 3 below.

"As Hiccup fulfills his dream of creating a peaceful dragon utopia, Toothless' discovery of an untamed, elusive mate draws the Night Fury away. When danger mounts at home and Hiccup's reign as village chief is tested, both dragon and rider must make impossible decisions to save their kind."

Back in October 2014, director Dean DeBlois revealed that »

‘How to Train Your Dragon 3’ Release Pushed Back a Year

5 December 2016 2:43 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It will take a little longer for “How to Train Your Dragon 3” to fly into theaters.

The sequel in the popular animated franchise hits theaters on March 1, 2019, nearly a year after it was originally slated for release, DreamWorks Animation said Monday. That gives it a one-week jump on “Captain Marvel,” a comic-book adventure featuring Brie Larson. “How to Train Your Dragon 3” was originally supposed to open on May 18, 2018. That would have put it a week before a Han Solo, “Star Wars” spinoff film. 

Director Dean DeBlois, who oversaw the previous two “Dragon” films, will return for the sequel.


How to Train Your Dragon 3,’ Margot Robbie’s ‘Larrikins’ Officially Move to Universal

In addition, Oriental DreamWorks’ “Everest” will open on Sept. 27, 2019.  The film follows a group of misfits who undertake an epic journey to reunite a magical creature with his family atop the world’s tallest mountain.

Your Oscar Frontrunners Are ‘Manchester,’ ‘Moonlight’ and ‘La La Land’: Critics’ Groups Weigh In

2 December 2016 8:02 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After the first week of critics’ groups announcing their picks, we have a trifecta of Oscar frontrunners: Amazon/Roadside’s “Manchester by the Sea,” A24’s “Moonlight,” and Lionsgate’s “La La Land.” These are the same films that triumphed on the fall film festival circuit, benefitting from the slow and steady drumbeat of media attention as well as relentless awards campaigning.

Among those that found no love from critics were the late arrivals: Ben Affleck’s “Live By Night,” Martin Scorsese’s “Silence,” Weinstein Co.’s “The Founder” and “Gold,” and Peter Berg’s “Patriots Day” were shutouts. Snubs met veteran Oscar winners Robert Zemeckis, Ang Lee, Warren Beatty, and Oliver Stone, while Clint Eastwood’s “Sully” and Mel Gibson’s “Hacksaw Ridge” are still in play.

“I loved the experience of making this,” Natalie Portman says of Pablo Larrain’s Jackie, the new film in which she stars as Jackie Kennedy, as we sit down on the Fox lot to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. Portman, the 35-year-old Israeli-born actress who has grown up in the movies since making her film debut at 12 in The Professional, looks and sounds eerily like the former First Lady in the film, which jumps around in time, covering, in no particular order, her first solo exposure to the public on a Feb. 14, 1962 TV special; the Nov. 22, 1963 assassination of her husband; the days of personal and national mourning thereafter; and a closed-door interview she granted a week after her husband’s death.

Belko Experiment Red Band Trailer from Producer James Gunn

1 December 2016 11:23 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before filmmaker James Gunn went off to make his long-awaited sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which hits theaters this May, he also produced a small indie film he wrote several years ago entitled The Belko Experiment, which is finally coming to the big screen. Just days after the first trailer preview arrived, today we have the full red band trailer for this intense thriller, that takes "workplace violence" to a whole new level. We also have new photos as well from The Belko Experiment, which is set to hit theaters on March 17.

Written by the acclaimed writer/director James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, Slither) and directed by Greg McLean (creator of the Wolf Creek franchise), The Belko Experiment is a terrifying, provocative and at times hilarious thrill-ride that literally provokes the question; what does it take to survive at work?

Vikings Star Katheryn Winnick Wants to Play Black Canary in a DC Movie

1 December 2016 11:03 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before Brie Larson was announced as Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel, many a popular blonde-haired actress threw their proverbial hat into the right, hoping to play the character. Now that Captain Marvel is no longer an option, one of those campaigning for the superhero has turned sides, and wants to be let in on the Dceu. Yes, Katheryn Winnick has her sights set on Black Canary.

Though, where Black Canary might first show up on the big screen is anybody's guess. But the best guess would be in the planned Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey movie starring Margot Robbie. The DC big screen universe is expanding at an expedient rate, and there will be a lot of room to introduce new characters over the next couple of years.

Black Canary has already appeared alongside Arrow in that CW series. But there hasn't been any crossover between the Dceu »

Forget Captain Marvel, Vikings' Katheryn Winnick Now Has Her Eye On Black Canary Role In The DC Films Universe

1 December 2016 7:40 AM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

With a character as popular as Captain Marvel, comic book fans understandably had a long list of actresses they wanted to see play Carol Danvers, but Katheryn Winnick's name came up more often than most. The Vikings star has obviously since lost out on the chance to play the character after Oscar winner Brie Larson was chosen by Marvel, but she's clearly open to taking on another heroic role! As you can see in the Tweet below, it's not one in the Marvel Cinematic Universe either as Winnick has now expressed an interest in playing the DC Films Universe's Black Canary. Rumour has it that the character will show up in Justice League next year, but if that was the case, we'd probably have heard some casting news by now. The hero's big screen debut is definitely long overdue at this stage though. Of course, for that to happen, »

Vikings star Katheryn Winnick interested in playing Black Canary

1 December 2016 5:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Vikings actress Katheryn Winnick has long been on fan wishlists to star in a comic book film. Many campaigned for her to take the title role in Captain Marvel, but that film ended up finding its star in Brie Larson. Now, fans have turned their attention instead to the other big superhero franchise in town, the DC Extended Universe. Namely, for the role of Black Canary.

On Wednesday, Winnick held a Q&A on her Twitter page, and was quickly asked whether or not she’d be interested in the role of DC’s fishnet-wearing superheroine should Warner Brothers ever make a Green Arrow film. Her answer? An unequivocal “Hell ya.”

Hell ya
