Things have been a little quiet on the James Bond front as of late after a flurry of rumors over the last month or so surrounding who may be taking over for Daniel Craig as 007. Things are still uncertain as to whether or not Craig is going to return, but if he doesn't, Thor star Tom Hiddleston is still regarded as the frontrunner. Unless you have been sleeping under a rock or simply don't care, you might know that Hiddleston just so happens to be dating Taylor Swift. What does that have to do with James Bond 25? We're glad you asked.
What is about to be said needs to be taken with a massive grain of salt, but it isn't completely inconceivable, so let's dig in. A new rumor that comes from an unnamed source by way of TMZ claims that Taylor Swift is dating Tom Hiddleston because she »
Last year we brought you some concept art for Avengers: Age of Ultron which revealed that Marvel considered giving Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch her customary headband [see here], and it seems the idea was back on the table for this year’s Captain America: Civil War, with illustrator Andy Park sharing some of his unused designs for Wanda with and without the headpiece…

Last seen wrecking shop with the rest of the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War, Paul Rudd changes gears quite considerably with the Netflix distributed The Fundamentals of Caring, the second feature from We Made This Movie director Rob Burnett. Stepping into the shoes of retired writer Ben Benjamin, whose life is in a downward spiral after a personal tragedy. After qualifying as a care giver, his first charge is Trevor (Craig Roberts), a young man suffering from muscular dystrophy who might be just as broken as himself. Soon becoming friends, the pair embark on a cross country trip to visit the World's Deepest Pit, where they find they can help each other fix themselves. So yeah, The Fundamentals of Caring isn’t anything new when it comes to this type of Indie drama, but to dismiss it on those terms would be a huge mistake. Burnett’s script may »

When John Boyega was first cast in Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in April 2014, he only had a handful of credits to his name, but he was best known for his feature film debut role in Attack the Block, a 2011 indie sci-fi thiller that was beloved by critics, but didn't make a huge dent at the box office ($1 million domestic, $5.8 million worldwide). The actor is now currently filming Star Wars: Episode VIII and he also recently signed on to star in a new untitled project from Kathryn Bigelow, but it seems the young actor is looking to team up with his Attack the Block director Joe Cornish.
Over the weekend, John Boyega revealed on Twitter that he ran into Joe Cornish and that they have already started "brainstorming" for "something new." Naturally, the actor wouldn't divulge any more details about this project, and we don't know for sure if »
Paul Rudd, Craig Roberts and Selena Gomez star in the new Netflix film “The Fundamentals of Caring,” written and directed by Rob Burnett. Adapted from the Jonathan Evison novel “The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving,” the film tells the story about a young boy with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, played by Roberts, and his caregiver, Paul Rudd, who are both equally wounded and have low prospects of getting any better. Variety spoke with director, producer and writer Burnett about why Netflix was the best venue for the project and why Rudd was the perfect fit.
What attracted you to the project?
When I read this book by Jonathan Evison, I thought he did such a nice job telling a very tragic story in a funny way. That bittersweet quality of these characters is something that always attracts me to the material.
Was it difficult to adapt the novel?
It’s difficult because »

The Sundance film festival in Park City, Utah, showcases more than 150 feature films each year, among them everything from soporific character studies to gross-out comedy vehicles. Yet to many, Sundance is most closely associated with a particular strain of indie dramedy that came to dominate the festival in the mid-2000s, when the likes of Garden State and Little Miss Sunshine made their debuts. This subgenre has clung on for dear life ever since, even as its box-office clout has waned severely (more people appeared in the title of last year’s Me And Earl And The Dying Girl than showed up to watch it on opening weekend).
These glib, self-conscious films have turned the very word “Sundance” into something of a pejorative, but still they command industry attention: this year’s prime example, »

Ant-Man was a pleasant surprise for many fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe last year. After a lot of uncertainty during the production phase, it ultimately wound up being very well received and for a property nobody outside of big-time comic book fans knew much about, it did very well at the box office. That being the case, Marvel has a sequel in the works and director Peyton Reed recently opened up about Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Reed was at the Saturn Awards recently, where Ant-Man picked up a big win for Best Comic-To-Film Motion Picture. Speaking with Modern Myth Media in an interview during the awards, Reed talked quite a bit about the sequel to Ant-Man, and specifically talked a lot about how Hope Van Dyne, played by Evangaline Lilly, will factor in as The Wasp in the new movie. Here is what Reed had to say.
"It's something we're excited about. »

Ant-Man, after the gargantuan Avengers: Age of Ultron, was a nice change of pace for Marvel Studios as they closed the chapter on Phase 2 and started looking ahead to Phase 3. The Peyton Reed-directed film managed to garner a solid amount of critical acclaim and earned over $519 million worldwide on a modest budget of $130 million, which is coincidentally the smallest budget for any Marvel Studios film ever. Because of its success, the studio quickly announced plans for a sequel, titled Ant-Man and the Wasp, and inserted it in their Phase 3 line-up with a tentative release date of July 2018. Since it's still a ways out, we understandably don't know much about the film's plot. What we do know, however, is that stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, and Michael Douglas will all be back reprising their roles from the first installment and that Reed is returning to direct with a script he's currently penning alongside Rudd, »
With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.
Aferim! (Radu Jude)
Leave it to a Romanian director to make a movie that best expresses the dangers of the dyed-in-the-wool mindset of modern America. Culled partly from historical documents, Aferim! is a twisted history lesson whose messages transcend its insular time period of 19th-century Romania. Its story concerns Constable Costandin (Teodor Corban) and his son, Ionita (Mihai Comanoiu), who chase after a wanted Gypsy slave »

Since her brilliant transition from Disney star to rebellious teen in Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers,” Selena Gomez continues to surprise. Too bad the same can’t be said for her new movie, “The Fundamentals of Caring,” a saccharine buddy dramedy from writer-director Rob Burnett (best known as the executive producer of “The Late Show with David Letterman”).
“The Fundamentals of Caring” stars Paul Rudd as Ben, a grieving father and failed writer who takes a job as a caretaker for an amusingly surly teenage boy. Not that Trevor, played by a doe-eyed Craig Roberts (“Submarine”), doesn’t have a reason to be surly; he suffers from muscular dystrophy, a disorder that severely impairs his physical abilities but leaves his mind sharp. Ben and Trevor strike up an all-too-likely friendship, each being the only one to tell the other the hard truths.
