Later this week, Lrm will be attending this year’s Sundance Film Festival. While the festival tends to be a mixed bag of indie films, some will be picked up for distribution by studios and turned into mainstream hits, others will flounder and be lucky to get a VOD release. Even so, there’s no denying that Sundance is the real beginning of the year for most movie lovers as we’ll be talking about the movies below for the next 12 months.
Last year alone, Sundance held the premieres for The Birth of a Nation, Manchester by the Sea, Captain Fantastic, Love and Friendship, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Sing Street and many more films, some that appeared on The Weekend Warrior’s year-end Top 25. One or two of those might even receive Oscar nominations when they’re announced next week on January 24.

If Avengers: Infinity War ends up feeling slightly disjointed, we'll know why. It's being reported this morning that star Benedict Cumberbatch, who will be reprising his role as Doctor Strange, is getting a stand-in for the early part of the shoot. We're not sure if this is the only actor getting such treatment. But it all makes perfect sense.
Avengers: Infinity War is the most mammoth undertaking Marvel has ever set out to accomplish. And the production will span nearly the entire year of 2017, as the Russo Bros. shoot it with Avengers 4 back-to-back. There are a reported 67 main characters. Doing the math, that's a lot of schedules to juggle. And some of the actors aren't going to be ready when production starts in just a few weeks.
"Elliot, we've been idiots. We've been going about it all wrong." No, that's not deleted dialogue from E.T. The Extra Terrestrial -- that Elliott spells his name differently -- but instead fresh new dialogue, featured in our exclusive, Nsfw (not safe for work) clip from the animated film Nerdland. John (voiced by Paul Rudd) and Elliot (voiced by Patton Oswalt) want to become famous but, as John says, they haven't been paying sufficient attention to realize exactly how people become famous -- or infamous -- nowadays. That spurs them on to a series of misadventures. Andrew Kevin Walker (Seven, Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow) wrote the original script and Chris Prynoski (Metalocalypse, Son of Zorn) directed. Enjoy the clip below. Nerdland is now available to watch...

All this week we have been confirming actors for Avengers: Infinity War, but today we get to talk about a new actor joining the cast. Lord Tyrion himself, Peter Dinklage is set to join. He played Bolivar Trask in X-Men: Days Of Future Past brilliantly, so he is not an amateur to the comic world, and Variety reports that he will likely play a key role in Infinity War.
He's Pip!! Gotta be!! https://t.co/LQRl7gYRVd

This could be legit. Dinklage is a great actor, and Pip is a big part of a Thanos storyline. Another commentator on his thread suggested he could be Puck, which would also be cool. »

Just when you thought the cast of Avengers: Infinity War couldn’t get any better, a new report from Variety states that Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage is being eyed for a role in the film. If the actor does come on board the project, he’ll most likely be returning for the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4, which is due out a year after Infinity War.
Signing on would make Dinklage a newcomer to the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, although he’s no stranger to comic book movies. In 2014, the actor played Dr. Bolivar Trask, the creator of the Sentinels and target of an assassination attempt, in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. While Dinklage did fine work in the movie, he was severely underused and didn’t exactly make a strong impression, so if he’s trading Fox’s X-Men universe for Disney’s McU, there’s not a lot of damage done. »

Back in December, a rumoured cast list for Avengers: Infinity War surfaced online, which omitted a handful of expected characters – most notably the friendly neighborhood wall-crawler, Spider-Man.
Well, Spidey fans can now breathe easy, as Tom Holland has revealed to Vogue that he will be reprising the role of Peter Parker for the 2018 superhero epic, which will mark his third McU outing after Captain America: Civil War and this year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Meanwhile, Zoe Saldana has also confirmed her participation as Gamora, telling MTV that: “I don’t know when they’re gonna let me read it. I mean, I’m not looking forward to the five hours of green make-up, but every time I finally arrive on set I feel so happy and lucky to be there.”
Gamora’s inclusion won’t come as any surprise, seeing as we’ve already heard that the Guardians of the Galaxy will feature, »

The groceries at Shopwell’s live their lives by a code that helps them stay peaceful and happy until it’s time for them to leave the comfort of the supermarket and head for “the great beyond”. However, after a botched trip to the great beyond leaves one sausage named Frank and his companion Bun stranded, their lives become a quest to discover the truth about their existence and what really happens when they become chosen to leave the grocery store…
I was really, really, looking forward to Sausage Party, I truly was. I enjoy a good gross out comedy as much as the next person – maybe more so, given how many I’ve seen – but Rogen’s latest, »

For quite some time now, we have assumed that Spider-Man will be in Avengers: Infinity War. It is on the IMDb page, Tom Holland (Spider-Man) has a 6 movie contract, and one could only assume that this will be his big Avengers movie. We have heard some rumors that his time will be limited, but take that with a grain of salt because no actor, to my knowledge, has even read the script.
At least today we can safely report that he will be in the movie, and in an interview with Holland in the Italian magazine L'Uomo Vogue he confirms as much. Keep in mind, this article has only been in physical print so far, and it took Google translate to figure it out after the Tom Holland Italian Twitter account posted a picture of the magazine which you can see here:

Sunday night, the Golden Globe Awards were handed out and in attendance was the alluring actress Zoe Saldana, who plays Gamora in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While we have a pretty good idea of who will be in Avengers: Infinity War, it's always newsworthy when an actor confirms a role, as Saldana was interviewed by MTV's Josh Horowitz and asked her thoughts on the Infinity War script.
“I don’t know when they’re going to let me see it [the script], I’m not looking forward to the five hours of green make up, but every time I arrive on set, I’m so happy and lucky to be there.”
That statement is confirmation enough for me, and yesterday IGN was able to squeeze a little more information out of her as she gives her thoughts on working with a different director and the direction of her character in Infinity War. »

According to My Production Weekly (via Omega Underground), Marvel’s Phase Three addition Ant-Man and The Wasp is set to begin filming in Atlanta during June.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is set for release on July 6th 2018, which gives Disney roughly a year to get everything shot and edited in time for release. The Ant-Man sequel will once again be directed by Peyton Reed, starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly as the titular superheroes.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps getting bigger and bigger, with this year set to be the first where Marvel Studios will release three movies in a calendar year.

The studio will also start production on Black Panther in just a few short days, but today we have word that the studio is planning on shooting the highly-anticipated sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp this June in Atlanta. While we don't have an exact date at this time, it will give the filmmakers over a year for filming and post-production before its July 6, 2018 release date.

Here’s the synopsis:
Set in the near-future, Leo (Skarsgard) is a bartender living in the pulsing city of Berlin. Because of a childhood accident, Leo lost the ability to speak and the only good thing in his life is his beautiful girlfriend Naadirah (Saleh). When she vanishes without a trace, Leo’s search for her takes him deep into the city’s seedy underbelly. A pair of wise-cracking American surgeons (Rudd and Theroux) are the only recurring clue and Leo is forced to take on this teeming underworld in order to find his love.
The film is directed by Jones and he wrote alongside with Michael Robert Johnson.

Duncan Jones' psychological thriller, starring Alexander Skarsgard, Paul Rudd, and Justin Theroux is coming to Netflix this year! In anticipation for it's inevitable release, check out the first photos from the film!
The director of Moon, Source Code, and most recently Warcraft, has spent the last few months working his latest film, not for the big screen, but for the streaming juggernaut Netflix. Today, we get to sample the fruits of his labor with new pics! Let's analyze the first pictures from Duncan Jones' Netflix Original Movie, Mute, shall we?
As you can see from the photos, Mute feels very 80s with its interpretation of the future. Almost Blade Runner-esque or Judge Dredd without all the Rob Schneiders hiding in pasta robots. The premise behind Mute is a pretty interesting one too. See the synopsis below:

The first, often tiny, reveals from films, especially those that are still rather far from release, don’t generally amount to much, but when Duncan Jones is involved, you hope for a taste of the wild world headed your way.
Mute, a film that sounds like a brilliant revisit to film noir, has released a few images, and though I’m not usually one for picking apart the details of such things, these actually manage to amp up the anticipation. Sure, the image of Paul Rudd is just Paul Rudd with a serious mustache, but he plays one of a pair of surgeons, and he looks like he’s stepped out of some warped reboot of Mash.
Beyond that little touch of fun, the images reveal something that looks like Blade Runner, and when you put it together with the dark, ominous plot, that throws things a bit out of »

Duncan Jones' long gestating sci-fi noir, Mute, is finally in production thanks to support from Netflix. Featuring Alexander Skarsgard as a mute bartender looking for his missing partner, the film co-stars Paul Rudd and The Leftovers' Justin Theroux. The first official images for Mute have popped over at EW and they showcase a neon soaked dystpoia not unlike the one depicted in Ridley Scott's overpopulated Blade Runner. Jones, though, has been quick to point out that Mute is as inspired by Casablanca as it is Scott's classic. Synopsis: Berlin. Forty years from today. A roiling city of immigrants, where East crashes against West in a science-fiction Casablanca. Leo Beiler, a mute bartender has one reason and one reason only for living here, and she's disappeared....

After entering the world of large-scale fantasy with last year’s Warcraft, director Duncan Jones is returning to sci-fi for his next film, but this time with a smaller scope. His long-gestating futuristic project Mute finally went into production last year, and ahead of a release on Netflix in 2017, the first images and new synopsis have arrived.
Starring Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd, and Justin Theroux, it follows a mute bartender who has to track down his girlfriend in a near-future Berlin. Judging from this first look, we can see the Blade Runner-inspired set design and a mustachioed Rudd, which is often the best kind of Rudd. Check out the official synopsis and new images (above and below) for the film featuring a score from Clint Mansell.

Netflix has released the first images from Duncan Jones’ Mute and they feature a lot of neon, a brooding Alexander Skarsgård, and Paul Rudd working his Anchorman mustache. In this futuristic tale, Skarsgård takes on the lead role of a bartender named Leo who can’t speak. After Leo’s girlfriend goes missing, he crosses paths with two “wise-cracking” surgeons played by Rudd and Theroux. Back in 2011, Jones talked about his affection for these characters in an interview with The A.V. Club. “It’s kind of like buddy villains as opposed to buddy cops, and they see themselves as being so high above everyone else around them intellectually, as surgeons working in Berlin doing cybernetic work and enhancements in the black market, helping out bodyguards, getting them all wired up so they can tear people’s heads off,” he said. He now has outfitted them with distinctly wacky »

If you're done bingeing The Oa and you're looking for a new, mysterious Netflix property to obsess over, Paul Rudd and Alexander Skarsgard are here for you. They star in the streaming giant's latest original film, Mute, which looks like the perfect futuristic thriller to tide us over until Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters. Mute is directed by Warcraft's Duncan Jones and is described as a "spiritual sequel" to his debut sci-fi film, Moon, since it takes place in the same universe. Set in the near future, Leo (Skarsgard) is a mute bartender living in Berlin, whose beautiful girlfriend, Naadirah (Seyneb Saleh), disappears. With the help of two American surgeons (Rudd and Justin Theroux), Leo descends into the city's seedy underbelly in search of his lost love. It won't premiere until sometime later this year (the exact date is still Tbd), but for now, take a peek at the »
