See The Origins Of The Vulture In This New Spider-Man: Homecoming Clip

2 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The battle against Loki’s Chitauri army in and above New York City at the climax of The Avengers has had an impact all over the McU. We’ve seen characters seeking revenge for family members crushed by rubble in Jessica Jones and Hell’s Kitchen struggling to recover and rebuild in Daredevil, not to mention the psychological consequences for Tony Stark in Iron Man 3. Now, it seems that the consequences of this battle will continue to hit home in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

In the clip above, we see Michael Keaton’s Adrian Toomes dealing with the ongoing cleanup operation, specifically salvaging the alien technology and shipping it off to Stark Industries for study. As we hear on the TV, experts estimate there are over 1500 tonnes of “exotic material” scattered across the city. And, as ominous music swells underneath him, Toomes makes the fateful decision to keep it, as “it »

Unfortunately, though, Bug was marketed as a body horror movie from the director of The Exorcist, which is... not what it is. At all »

25 May 2017 4:16 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Deadpool 2 has found itself with a major villain in the form of Jack Kesy, as to which villain he will portray, well that’s being kept under wraps for the time being but rumours abound it could be the X-Men enemy Black Tom.

Having clashed with Deadpool numerous times in the comic book series, Black Tom is the cousin of Banshee. He is indeed a mutant, he can manipulate, bond with, and project energy through plant life. He is also capable of issuing concussive blasts with a wooden object, usually a shillelagh. Tom was the black sheep of a prominent Irish family and secretly raised Banshee’s daughter Siryn, of whose existence Banshee was unaware, and conscripted her into his criminal gang. Black Tom was also a long time criminal partner of the super-strong villain Juggernaut, until Juggernaut’s reformation.

Michael Shannon ‘Lays on the Floor Like a Vampire’ During Long Shoots, to the Surprise of No One

21 May 2017 11:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Michael Shannon makes a lot of movies. He appeared in eight of them just last year, earning an Academy Award nod for “Nocturnal Animals” (clearly an act of penance for his “Night Before” snub the previous year), and is slated for several more before 2018 rolls around. Still, he doesn’t necessarily like being on film sets: “They basically are like a petri dish for boredom and silliness,” Shannon said during Vulture Festival yesterday.

With that in mind, he apparently prefers to do his work and mind his own business. “I try to not say much,” the actor continued. “People think, Oh, you’re in character or whatever. It’s like, ‘No. I don’t come here to talk.’ I just want to say what’s written and go home. »

Jake Gyllenhaal and Benedict Cumberbatch to headline new thriller from Luca Guadagnino

16 May 2017 5:17 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

Well this already sounds amazing! Word from Deadline this weekend has suggested that Academy Award Nominees Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange, The Imitation Game) and Jake Gyllenhaal (Okja, Nocturnal Animals) are set to headline the new film from acclaimed director Luca Guadagnino (A Bigger Splash).

The new thriller has been written by Steven Knight, the screenwriter behind Allied and hit BBC show Peaky Blinders, and is set to start filming sometime in early 2018 with StudioCanal financing the film. The script reportedly concerns two friends, “one a business titan and the other a journalist”, and it is also said to include a “strong female lead” that is still to be cast.

It has already been a busy year for the acclaimed director: earlier this year, his latest film Call Me By Your Name, debuted to critical acclaim at this year’s Sundance Film Festival as well the Berlin Film Festival, »

Inspired by The Mummy, our monster movie fantasy casting!Inspired by The Mummy, our monster movie fantasy casting!Zachary Dent5/15/2017 4:17:00 Pm

The Mummy hits theatres June 9th and is the first monster movie of Universal’s new Monster Universe. This “shared universe” will include rebooted versions of original monster movies including Dracula, Wolf Man, Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Van Helsing, and the Invisible Man.

Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond, Kingsman: The Secret Service) plays the title monster in The Mummy and from what we’ve seen in trailers we can’t imagine anyone else in the role. Universal has already cast Johnny Depp as the Invisible Man and Javier Bardem as Frankenstein in upcoming remakes… but that still leaves plenty of monsters to be cast. So, we’ve taken the liberty of "fantasy casting" the remaining monsters with actors/actresses we think would be perfect for the roles. »

Mother!: Darren Aronofsky’s new film gets a first poster

15 May 2017 4:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard May 15, 2017

Black Swan director Aronofsky decided to join in with the Mother's Day celebrations overseas by dropping a poster for his latest outing.

Darren Aronofsky has made some absolutely cracking films over the last two decades. Pi, Requiem For A Dream and Black Swan all saw the director wearing his influences on his sleeve - from Tetsuo: The Iron Man to Perfect Blue to Suspiria - while he still managed to create very individual pieces of work and become a celebrated director in his own right, even picking up an Oscar nomination back in 2011.

Elizabeth Chomko’s Feature Debut Starring Hilary Swank Acquired by Bleecker Street

11 May 2017 1:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Hilary Swank: Time/ YouTube

Elizabeth Chomko’s feature debut has found a home. The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Bleecker Street snagged the North American rights to “What They Had,” a family drama toplined by Hilary Swank. Blythe Danner, Michael Shannon (“Boardwalk Empire”), Taissa Farmiga (“American Horror Story”), and Robert Forster (“Jackie Brown”) co-star in the film, which recently wrapped in Chicago and La.

Revolving around a family in crisis, “What They Had” sees Bridget (Swank) returning home to Chicago after her brother pressures her to “deal with her mother’s (Danner) Alzheimer’s and her father’s (Forster) reluctance to let go of their life together,” THR summarizes. Chomko penned the script, which won her a 2015 Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting.

“I was incredibly moved by Elizabeth’s story of a family working through their collective issues and the heartache of dealing with a loved one affected by Alzheimer’s,” Bleecker Street CEO Andrew Karpen commented. “We know audiences will relate to the characters’ love, compassion, and humor in dealing with each other.”

Chomko added, “Making this film has been a true labor of love for me, my creative team, and the magnificent cast. I could not be more delighted to include Bleecker Street among our family and have this film be part of theirs.”

Bleecker Street is planning a theatrical release for 2018.

Swank is among the project’s executive producers. Her recent credits include “You’re Not You” and “The Homesman.” The two-time Oscar winner — who took home awards for “Million Dollar Baby” and “Boys Don’t Cry” — has previously spoken out about the gender pay gap that persists in the film industry, noting “My male counterpart will get paid 10 times more than me — 10 times. Not double, but 10 times for the same job.” She explained, “Both [women and men] are compelling, interesting, diverse, [and] wonderful in all their own separate ways. And yet there’s an influx of male roles and there’s just not for women.”

Chomko is an actress whose credits include “The Mentalist,” “Common Law,” and “Terriers.”

Elizabeth Chomko’s Feature Debut Starring Hilary Swank Acquired by Bleecker Street was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

HBO Begins Casting on ‘Fahrenheit 451’ Screen Adaptation

10 May 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Stay in the loop on industry and casting news with our write-up on who’s been slated for recent film and television roles! “Fahrenheit 451”“Fahrenheit 451” is about to hit HBO. The iconic Ray Bradbury novel about dystopian control and McCarthy-era censorship has long been held as one of Bradbury’s best works, with the awards to prove it, and HBO is taking it to the small screen with a made-for-tv movie. The book’s title explains one of the story’s main themes, with 451 degrees Fahrenheit being the temperature at which books will burn. The story centers on a firefighter whose job is to start fires instead of extinguishing them by burning the possessions of those found to have books. When he overhears his freethinking teenage neighbor, he begins to consider what his job is costing humanity. Suicide, robot dogs, and emotionless humans all plague the rooted-in-real-life science fiction novel. »

9 May 2017 5:42 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hulu is stepping up its drama game, ordering a pilot for “Crash & Burn,” based on the 2013 bestseller by Michael Hassan, Variety has learned exclusively.

The series, which is created by writer/showrunner Aaron Zelman (“Damages”), tracks the lives of three troubled suburban boys through three different time periods starting in the ’90s. Equal parts mystery, thriller, and character study, “Crash & Burn” aims to honestly depict the humor, aggression and awkwardness of pubescent boys.

Hulu has fast tracked production for this summer, with delivery of the pilot set for September. The project hails from Sony TV.
