First Things First: at Movie City News the "Gurus of Gold" have begun (yes, I'm a part of it again) and as David Poland points out there are seven films that made almost every list: Birdman, Gone Girl, Boyhood, and Unbroken tied at 1st place with Foxcatcher, Selma, and Interstellar just behind them. Most pundits are feeling these as Best Picture threats. Look at the whole chart though to see how everything fared. The highest ranking films that were not on my list (we were asked to submit 15 films) are Wild and Inherent Vice.
Early rave reviews at the Venice Film Festival from The Telegraph, Variety and THR and a couple positive but not ecstatic reviews from The Guardian and The Film Stage are up and surely bode well for the film. I'm holding off on reading them as I want the movie fresh when I see it. »

Olga Kurylenko is becoming more than just a name to watch for. She is one hell of a good actress that also happens to be utterly gorgeous. She gave a stunning performance recently in Terrence Malick’s drama To The Wonder, and she was absolutely incredible in Neil Marshall’s Centurion. In her latest, The November Man, she stars opposite Pierce Brosnan and adds a ton of charm to her character Alice. Sitting across from Ms. Kurylenko is more than simply a pleasant »
Last night the 2014 Emmy Award winners were announced with "Breaking Bad" taking home top honors with five wings including Outstanding Drama Series, followed by "Modern Family" with three wins including Outstanding Comedy Series. FX programs "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Fargo" each took home two awards including an Outstanding Miniseries win for "Fargo". Meanwhile, new shows such as "Orange is the New Black" and "Silicon Valley" went home empty handed and for all the fanfare it received in its first season, including 12 Emmy nominations, "True Detective" only took home one win, that being for director Cary Joji Fukunaga". Personally, I don't give a lick about the Emmys, it's right there with the Grammys in terms of worthless awards shows for me. It's a show wherein people must nominate themselves and while most award shows are no better, this one is down there near the bottom for me. So, with that said, »

People express interest in directing particular projects all the time, but when a guy like Neil Marshall says he’d like to direct a Black Widow movie, you listen. Marshall’s the guy behind Game of Thrones’ “Blackwater” episode and he also actually just scored an Emmy nomination for directing season 4’s “The Watchers on the Wall,” but the one I hold near and dear is Marshall’s second feature film, the 2005 release, The Descent. While discussing his work on Game of Thrones in a recent interview, the conversation shifted to the fact that Marshall didn’t get the chance to work with very many of the show’s leading ladies because his episodes primarily focus on male-dominated battles. From there, the idea of directing a female superhero movie popped up and Marshall went straight for Scarlett Johansson. Hit the jump to find out what he said about directing a Black Widow movie. »

There are a lot of fans out there who would love to see a stand alone Black Widow movie. Marvel studio president Kevin Feige has admitted in previous interviews that the studio has been discussing ideas for a solo film, but that it also wouldn't happen anytime soon. When it does eventually happen, Game of Thrones director Neil Marshall would love to make it! In an interview with Vanity Fair, he said,
"I would love to do a Black Widow movie. That’s perfect, I would love to do that. That character is really interesting, she doesn’t have any superpowers, she just has extraordinary skills, and the world that she comes from, being this ex-k.G.B. assassin, I find that really fascinating, yeah."

If a Black Widow movie is going to happen, there's one person who would definitely be up for directing the Marvel film: Neil Marshall. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Marshall was asked if he would want to direct Black Widow, after talking about how he's interested in movies with characters like Scarlett Johansson's in Lucy. I would love to do a Black Widow movie. That’s perfect, I would love to do that. That character is really interesting, she »

The writer-director has expressed an interest in the superhero, portrayed by Scarlett Johansson in Marvel's films.
"I would love to do a Black Widow movie," he told Vanity Fair. "That's perfect, I would love to do that.
"That character is really interesting. She doesn't have any superpowers, she just has extraordinary skills, and the world that she comes from, being this ex-kgb assassin, I find that really fascinating, yeah."
Marshall directed the 'Watchers on the Wall' and 'Blackwater' episodes of Game of Thrones.
Marvel is yet to announce plans for a film starring former Russian spy Natasha Romanova. »
Breaking Bad’s amazing final season always meant that it was a likely winner come awards season. However, the debut of the critically acclaimed True Detective earlier this year did leave many wondering whether it might rob the end to Walter White’s story of one final sweep of prizes at last night’s Emmy Awards.
As it turns out, Breaking Bad would end up being rewarded for those amazing final episodes, though True Detective did earn a very well deserved award for director Cary Joji Fukunaga (who helmed all eight instalments).
The UK was represented by Sherlock, and that too did exceptionally well, walking away with Emmys for Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and writer Steven Moffat. Looking at the results, it’s hard to imagine anyone being too upset with the results, though many Game of Thrones fans won’t be happy to see that it was again snubbed. »

America’s version of the TV BAFTA’s, The Emmy Awards took place in Los Angeles last night. The cream of the televisual crop were out in force to celebrate the occasion. Whilst several big name shows including Game of Thrones and True Detective where up for several categories, it was Breaking Bad that scooped-up the main acting prizes which are whole-heartedly deserved and a fitting way to say goodbye to the show which ended last year.
Other shows that performed well were comedy series Modern Family for which Ty Burrell won best actor, and American Horror Story: Coven which saw both Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates take home the big acting trophies. Everyone’s favourite British sleuth also did well as Benedict Cumberbatch won for his role in series Sherlock. See below for the winners list in full and we’ve also put in the moving tribute from Billy Crystal for his friend, »

Vanity Fair has revealed that Game of Thrones director Neil Marshall is passionate in his desire to do a Black Widow movie with Scarlett Johansson. Could a Black Widow film possibly be one of the unnamed projects Marvel has lined up through the year 2020?
In the ever-escalating multi-media war between Marvel and DC, one weapon that hasn’t been utilized yet is a female-led super hero film. The latest word is that DC is seriously considering a solo Wonder Woman movie with Gal Gadot sometime in either 2017 or 2018, after the release of Justice League. Can Marvel counter that move? The Black Widow isn’t as big a comic icon as Wonder Woman, but she’s become well-known and popular from her previous film appearances, and Scarlett Johansson is a bona-fide A-List star. Her latest film Lucy hit the $200 million mark after one month at the box office, with 22 markets overseas still left to open. »

Neil Marshall is a busy man. He’s currently basking in a well deserved Emmy nomination (his very first!) for his efforts on the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones‘ fourth season; that bit of recognition nearly glazes over his dual contributions to Starz’ Black Sails (to say nothing of his upcoming pilot for NBC’s Constantine). And he has more works waiting in the wings, most of them stalled projects from prior to his martial engagements in Westeros – Outpost, The Last Voyage of the Demeter, and Burst 3D among them.
So with a slate that packed, it’s a wonder Marshall could even find time for genre movies about spontaneous human combustion, much less studio driven pictures. That’s the ...

Scarlett Johansson’s having a minor McConaissance just now. Lucy earned over $200 million worldwide, the highest-grossing action blockbuster not based on a comic book or a Hunger Games ripoff or an action figure–which is a roundabout way of saying that it probably earned that money because people wanted to see Scarlett Johansson. Lucy comes on the heels of major roles in acclaimed low-budgeters Her and Under the Skin, plus a co-lead role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Cap 2 marked her third go-round as Black Widow, a character who would seem ready-made for her own spinoff even if she »

Demand for a female-fronted superhero movie has been growing, pitting DC and Marvel in a contest to finally commit to a Wonder Woman, Black Widow or Ms. Marvel movie. But could a new contender for the director's chair have just stepped up the pressure to make one of these happen? Vanity Fair reports Game of Thrones' helmer Neil Marshall is hot to helm a Black Widow movie. In an engaging interview, Marshall was asked if he'd be interested in taking on a superheroine movie. At first, he was cautious in his consideration, offering: " I think I.d like to do a big movie with a strong female lead, whether or not she would be a superhero. I.m more interested in characters like Scarlett Johansson in Lucy. I.m less interested in people with superpowers because I can.t identify with them. Very rarely do they get killed off, »
Here’s hoping that the bigwigs over at Marvel are keeping an eye on news sites today. Game of Thrones director Neil Marshall, who also directed historical action epic Centurion, has voiced his enthusiasm at the prospect of directing a possible Black Widow spinoff for the studio somewhere down the line.
Speaking with Vanity Fair, Marshall said of his future plans that, “I think I’d like to do a big movie with a strong female lead, whether or not she would be a superhero.” To clarify, he added that, “I would love to do a Black Widow movie.”
Evidently, the director has a real admiration for Scarlett Johansson’s portrayal of the action heroine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Describing the character as “perfect,” he called Black Widow “really interesting” in that “she doesn’t have any superpowers, she just has extraordinary skills, and the world that she comes from, »
