It could only happen in the movies, or could it? Cinematic Depictions of Real Life Tragedies

27 April 2017 5:39 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

It comes as no surprise that some of our most heinous historical world events have become the subject of a cinematic depiction. As audiences wanting their thirst for great cinema and intrigue in world issues grow we have had, in the naughties alone, Roman Polanski deliver The Pianist in 2002 and more recently László Nemes’ Son of Saul to quench our desire. Even this week, we have the release of Terry George’s The Promise which tells the story of the Armenian Genocide in the final years of the Ottoman Empire with Oscar Isaac, Charlotte LeBon and Christian Bale hitting our cinemas.

Whether these events are genocides, horrific murders, acts of terrorism or even demonic paranormal activities, our quest for knowledge, understanding and feeling has inspired filmmakers for years. Their films set out to shine a light on the atrocities and suffering of man, and act to empower »

Beauty vs Beast: Look Who's Still Here

24 April 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp with our weekly "Beauty vs Beast" fun-time - I'm surprised it didn't occur to me to do this one at the start of this year when we were mourning the epic loss of both Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (I even re-watched this film at that time) but perhaps the pain was too much. Anyway as Nat told you earlier it's Shirley MacLaine's birthday so the right time has revealed itself, and today we'll tackle Mike Nichols' glorious 1990 comedy Postcards From the Edge, starring MacLaine and some Meryl woman, based on Fisher's thinly veiled book about a drug-addict actress and her let's-say-ebuillent actress-mother. Mother-Actress? Actress-Singer-Mother? Well that's the question, isn't it?

Previously I'm shocked and flabbergasted by you people - hasn't Jennifer Garner suffered enough? We wished her a happy birthday last week with some 13 Going on 30 love and y'all rejected her star-making performance for Adorable Mark Ruffalo. »

Thor: Ragnarok is nothing like Guardians of the Galaxy, according to Kevin Feige

24 April 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Looking at the trailer for Thor’s cosmic romp, Thor: Ragnarok, it’s pretty hard not to make comparisons to a certain other Marvel series featuring a group of intergalactic, wisecracking… well, Guardians. According to Marvel’s Kevin Feige, however, the two movies are nothing alike. Speaking to Heroic Hollywood, the head of Marvel Studios had this to say:

“Well, I think I would say it’s, and as people see more of Ragnarok, it’s a Taika tone more than a Guardians tone. He’s really adding a very unique point of view to it, but certainly the success of Guardians just boosted our confidence to continue to go in new, fun, weird directions.”

Thor: Ragnarok has consistently defied expectations since the movie’s announcement a few years ago. It looks like Marvel Studios is really set on making this installment in the Thor solo franchise the best yet. »

Infinity War and Avengers 4 Are Being Shot Separately

21 April 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Avengers: Infinity War was announced back in 2014, it was revealed as a "Part 1" and a "Part 2" that would be two movies connecting to tell a larger tale. Exactly like the final installments of The Hunger Games and Harry Potter franchises. That changed last year when it was announced that Avengers 4 is going to get a different title and is not just the second part of Avengers: Infinity War. Still, the two movies were supposed to be shooting together at the same time, with production overlapping. Now that has changed, and it has been confirmed that Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 are shooting separately.

While speaking with Collider, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed that the next two Avengers movies are no longer shooting at the same time, which was originally the plan. But logistically, that had to change because things became too complicated. Instead, the movies will be shooting »

Thor: Ragnarok Director Reveals Weird Reason Grandmaster Isn't Blue

20 April 2017 1:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans have certainly responded to the first Thor: Ragnarok trailer, which set a new Disney record with 136 million views in the first 24 hours. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston are back as the Asgardian brothers Thor and Loki, but this new adventure introduces a number of new characters, including Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster. A month before the trailer debuted, fans got their first look at The Grandmaster, who has a much different look in the movie than he does in the comics, where his skin is entirely blue. Director Taika Waititi revealed that there is a perfectly good explanation for this, which is also quite hilarious.

Earlier this week, a number of journalists were invited to the Marvel facility in Burbank for a special event, and Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi was on hand to discuss his Marvel Phase Three adventure, which arrives in theaters November 3. IGN spoke with Taika Waititi during the event, »

Word on the street is this is a possible dream sequence, after all Vision is human in the photos and doesn’t have anything on him that could CGI’d in post. The other possibility is that once Thanos removes the Mind Gem from Vision, the character will »

Taika Waititi is portraying Korg in Thor: Ragnarok

19 April 2017 4:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Korg is a member of the Kronan race, beings made entirely out of rock. Kronans were very briefly seen in Thor: The Dark World when Thor quickly dispatched one in the film’s opening minutes. Korg is a character that is making his way over onto film from the Planet Hulk storyline, of which is a huge influence on Thor: Ragnarok.

“Obviously, being made of rocks, we wanted somebody like The Rock to play him, but there wasn’t enough chicken or salmon in Australia to sustain he and Chris,” Waititi said. “I never thought I’d »

18 April 2017 1:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel fans have been wanting an adaptation of the Planet Hulk comic book storyline for years now. With Thor: Ragnarok, they are, at least partially, finally going to get their wish. Not only will we see Hulk doing battle with Thor in the arena, but some characters from the Planet Hulk storyline, like Korg and Miek, will also be making appearances. The best part? It has now been revealed that director Taika Waititi is playing Korg in Thor: Ragnarok.

Taika Waititi has never tackled a movie the size of Thor 3 before, but he regularly finds a way to put himself in his own movies. The director himself confirmed during a visit to Marvel Studios offices recently that he's found a way to put himself in this movie as Korg, an important character to the Planet Hulk storyline. According to the report, Taika Waititi wore a performance capture suit on »

Marvel Opens Its Doors: 4 Reasons the Studio Continues to Rule Hollywood’s Comic Book Realm

18 April 2017 12:29 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

On Monday evening, Marvel Studios opened up its sleek offices at Disney’s Frank Wells building in Burbank for a press tour ahead of a screening of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”

As long as media were arriving on the lot to see the movie anyway, Marvel Studio president Kevin Feige figured they might as well get a behind-the-scenes Marvel sneak peek. “We haven’t done this, come upstairs and walk around,” he told me, “and it felt like it was time to do it. We have some cool stuff on the walls.”

Indeed, much like the Lucasfilm headquarters in San Francisco or Steven Spielberg’s Amblin on the Universal lot, the hallways are studded with sacred icons and objects from the Marvel Comics Universe, from iterations of “Iron Man” suits and Captain America’s shield to Thor’s mighty hammer. Work cubicles are lined with comics and action figures, »

Burbank, CA — When it was revealed the assembled press on the Disney lot were about to take a real tour of Marvel Studios Monday afternoon, it was easy to guess at least one filmmaker or star would be part of the mix. That turned out to be none other than “Thor: Ragnarok” director Taika Waititi.

Inside Marvel Studios: Secrets About 'Black Panther,' 'Captain Marvel,' 'Thor: Ragnarok' & More!

It's a risk letting anyone see how the superhero sausage is made, but that's exactly what Marvel Studios did when they opened the doors of their offices to a pack of reporters on Monday night for an Open House. The itinerary for the event was shrouded in secrecy — Marvel's usual M.O. when it comes to anything connected to their Cinematic Universe — so each room on the tour contained some new surprise, unfolding like a game of Clue where the players are mostly actors named Chris.

Mark Ruffalo and his wife Sunrise Coigney are just a couple months away from celebrating their 17th wedding anniversary, but the spark is still there.

The 49-year-old actor turned the Turtle Ball, a charity event in New York City hosted by the Turtle Conservancy, into date night on Monday.

In between posing for photos on the red carpet, Ruffalo and Coigney shared a sweet kiss and exchanged a few smiles.

The mother of three — Keen, 15, Belle, 11, and Odette, 9, — looked lovely in a simple two-tone dress with a white detail cinching her waist. She wore her hair in a braided updo and accessorized with dangling earrings. »

Why 2007 was a great year for film

17 April 2017 1:27 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Allison Apr 18, 2017

10 years ago was was a high watermark in Hollywood - and British - filmmaking. We've been looking at why...

Ten years on, and 2007 must surely be remembered as one of the finest years in English-language film-making, quite possibly the best of this century so far. Like 1939, 1976, or 1994, it was one of those years in which a succession of veritable classics came into being. So many, in fact, that some of the best examples were cruelly overlooked by the hype machine of the day. A decade later, it’s high time to look back at 2007 for both its celebrated landmarks and forgotten masterpieces.

Beauty vs Beast: Age Ain't Nothing But A Couple of Numbers

17 April 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here, wishing Jennifer Garner a happy 45th birthday with this week's edition of "Beauty vs Beast." I know Garner's got some fans up in here, and I know that we are all hoping she can pull her career out of this slump its been in - even when she's had a hit movie like Dallas Buyers Club most people found her role superfluous to the plot. Anyone who watched Alias knows she deserves better. I'm hoping for a post-divorce Kidman Bump. I contemplated tackling Juno for this competition since the film's turning 10 this year but there's no solid Vs. there so instead we'll go back to her big hit in 2004 - 13 Going on 30, in which she abuses in two timelines a never more adorkable Mark Ruffalo...

Thor: Ragnarok Shatters Disney and Marvel Trailer View Record

12 April 2017 4:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Most Marvel fans would probably agree that the first teaser trailer for Thor: Ragnarok more than lived up to the expectations that were placed on it. It was absolutely packed with action, reveals and laughs, which is everything one might want from a Marvel Studios movie teaser trailer. But apparently, the trailer was even better than anyone could have imagined, because it just broke the all time Disney and Marvel record, as hard as that may be to believe.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the first teaser for Thor: Ragnarok was viewed more than 136 million times in the first 24 hours it was made available online. That puts it above the likes of other Marvel and Disney movie trailers like the Beauty and the Beast trailer, which was the previous record-holder for Disney with 127.6 million views. Star Wars: The Force Awakens' teaser was viewed 112 million times in that same time »
