Movie Review – Spy (2015)

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spy, 2015.

Written and Directed by Paul Feig.

Starring Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Jason Statham, Jude Law, Bobby Cannavale and Morena Baccarin.

Synopsis:

A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.

Martin Scorsese has Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DeNiro, Tim Burton has Johnny Depp, and Paul Feig has Melissa McCarthy. Some actor/director combinations fit like a glove, and for the third straight outing (Bridesmaids and The Heat) we have another success with Spy.

Unexpectedly, there is also an admirable amount of unexplored range channeled from Melissa McCarthy, not portraying the sassy, loudmouthed, obscene character right out of the gate that we have grown accustomed to. Instead, she plays Susan Cooper, a CIA field operative assistant of 10 years with low self-esteem that decides to jump into the heart of the action when her good friend Bradley Fine »

Spy: Jason Statham Steals the Show in 5 New Clips

20 May 2015 6:29 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox has released five new Spy clips for Paul Feig's (Bridesmaids, The Heat) upcoming espionage comedy. The film stars Melissa McCarthy as a desk-bound CIA agent who must go into the field for the first time when the identity of the agency's premiere assets are compromised. Jason Statham, who co-stars in the film as rugged top agent Rick Ford, is a consistently underrated performer who's long been relegated to shoot 'em up action films. Don't get me wrong, I love those movies, but I'm excited to see Statham finally get a chance to flex his comedy skills. If these clips are any indication, he's going to kill it. While he's definitely still playing to type as the brawny badass, Statham's bringing a self-awareness and utterly crass delivery to the character. Perri singled Statham out as a one of Spy's highlights in her SXSW review, and early »

Enter Our Giveaway and Win Jason Statham’s Face

15 May 2015 2:18 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of my favorite films from this year’s SXSW was director Paul Feig’s action-comedy Spy. The potential franchise-starter features Melissa McCarthy as Susan Cooper, a CIA analyst who goes into the field for the very first time after her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid. Loaded with an all-star cast (Jason StathamRose Byrne, Miranda Hart, Bobby Cannavale,  Allison JanneyPeter Serafinowicz, and Morena Baccarin), one of the main reasons Spy is so great is that each supporting character has a moment to shine, and Statham completely knocks it out of the park in his first big studio comedy. During the premiere, the crowd was laughing so loud I missed lines of dialogue between Statham and McCarthy. Trust me, this is a very funny movie that you should definitely see in a theater when it’s released June 5th. For more on Spy, read Perri’s review or watch the trailers. »

Morena Baccarin promoted to series regular for Gotham season 2

14 May 2015 8:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This won’t come as much of a surprise given her level of involvement in the latter half of the first season, but Morena Baccarin has officially been promoted to a series regular for the second season of Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham, which is set to get underway in the fall.

'Deadpool' Video: Mario Lopez Visits Ryan Reynolds On Set

13 May 2015 3:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following their epic April Fools' Day video used to announced Deadpool's R rating, Ryan Reynolds and Mario L&#243pez had some fun on set yesterday, releasing a photo of the Merc with a Mouth trying to kill the former Saved by the Bell actor. As we speculated, it was all for Extra's exclusive set visit. The video from that tour of duty has arrived, and shows Ryan Reynolds being grilled by Mario L&#243pez about the upcoming Marvel adventure.

Don't go looking for anything too deep, though, as this interview doesn't really reveal anything new about the movie itself. We do get to see Ryan Reynolds in costume with his mask off, but most of the talk is focused on the April Fools' Day prank and how they might top themselves next year. Instead of any cool new plot points, we instead learn that Ryan Reynolds will take the »

Deadpool Video Provides Close-Up Look at Ryan Reynolds in Costume

13 May 2015 2:25 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first official Deadpool set video has been released, although unfortunately it’s through Extra. That means Mario Lopez spends half this piece making this piece about him. Because that’s who audiences really care about: Mario Lopez. Also, his statement “Only we were invited to the top secret Vancouver set of Deadpool,” is untrue. Steve was there last week. Lopez’ vanity aside, this is the first look at Ryan Reynolds up close in the video. Granted, you won’t hear anything about the movie itself, but it’s still nice to get another look at Reynolds wearing the costume and doing it so well. Since filming will likely be completed or at least mostly completed by the summer, I’m wondering if Fox will take some footage to Comic-Con. An even better move would be putting Reynolds on stage in character like Sony did a few years back with »

Deadpool takes another swing at Mario Lopez

13 May 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back on April Fool’s Day, the Merc with a Mouth made an unannounced appearance on Extra, assaulting former Saved By the Bell star Mario Lopez as he revealed that Fox’s upcoming Deadpool movie will be R-rated. Well, it looks like Deadpool has now taken another swing at A.C. Slater, with Lopez posting the following image to his Instagram…

Update: And here’s the full on-set interview with Reynolds and Lopez..

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Movie Review – Spy (2015)

13 May 2015 10:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spy, 2015.

Written and Directed by Paul Feig.

Starring Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Jason Statham, Jude Law, Bobby Cannavale and Morena Baccarin.

Synopsis:

A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.

Melissa McCarthy has really blown up over the past few years after her hilarious performance in Bridesmaids. Since then she’s gone on to headline a ton of different films and has started to make herself a household name. Of course, not all of these films have been winners. Last year’s Tammy was a dreadful outing and 2013’s Identity Thief where she starred alongside Jason Bateman was pretty rough as well. It seems that when she’s paired up with the right people it can be a comedic success, which was the case with The Heat which also starred Sandra Bullock and was directed by Paul Feig, »

Gotham Bumps Morena Baccarin Up To Series Regular Status For Season 2

13 May 2015 8:50 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When Morena Baccarin (Deadpool) first debuted as Dr. Leslie Thompkins, many didn't expect her to stick around for too long, but with Erin Richards' Barbara Kean falling out of favor with fans, Baccarin received an expanded role as her relationship with Ben McKenzie's Jim Gordon evolved over the course of the latter half of the show's freshman season. And with Barbara's status, after her attack on Lee in the season finale, a little uncertain, it looks like Gordon will have the nice doctor to keep him company for a good while longer. Earlier this week, Fox officially announced that their Batman prequel drama Gotham has decided to exercise Baccarin's option to promote her from recurring status to a series regular. We all know Barbara Kean is supposed to eventually become Barbara Gordon, but with the direction the series is heading, could we see a further deviation in the Batman mythos? »

'Deadpool' Tries to Kill Mario Lopez in Latest Set Photo

12 May 2015 6:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

On April Fools Day, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds sent out a video to confirm the film's R rating. The viral announcement featured Extra TV host Mario L&#243pez, who eventually gets clobbered over the head by the Marvel superhero. It seems the brutal abuse has continued onto the Vancouver set, where posted a new photo, this time with an unmasked Ryan Reynolds taking a literal swing at the former Saved by the Bell actor.

Mario L&#243pez is not listed as a member of the cast for Deadpool, though at this point it seems likely that he may cameo. He is probably just visiting the set as a reporter, where he will do a true set visit piece for Extra. We'll be sure to update you if we hear otherwise.

'Gotham' Season 2 Promotes Morena Baccarin to Series Regular

12 May 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fox's Gotham has promoted actress Morena Baccarin to series regular for the upcoming second season. The actress joined the show in January's midseason premiere "Rogues Gallery" as Dr. Leslie Thompkins, who met Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) while they were both working at Arkham Asylum. They were introduced shortly after Gordon broke things off with his fiancee Barbara (Erin Richards), and started dating each other shortly thereafter.

Of course, the actress signing on as a series regular is no guarantee that Leslie's romance with Jim will continue, but even if the romance dies, she still serves as the lead medical examiner for the Gotham City Police Department. The first season ended in quite a harrowing fashion for Leslie, since she tried to counsel Barbara after her encounter with the Ogre (Milo Ventimiglia), which ultimately lead to Barbara trying to kill Leslie. It remains to be seen how this will affect Leslie »

Gotham Promotes Morena Baccarin to Series Regular for Season 2

12 May 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Gotham won’t have to get itself a new doctor for Season 2. Morena Baccarin, who recurred as Dr. Leslie Thompkins on the Fox drama during Season 1, has been promoted to series regular for the show’s second season. TVLine was the first to report the news. When Baccarin first joined Gotham back in January, it was reported that were was an option to make her a series regular if the show received a Season 2 order. Obviously, the series decided to exercise that option. So far in her time on Gotham, Baccarin’s Thompkins has served as a doctor at Arkham Asylum and become the new major love interest for Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), after things fell apart between him and his now ex-fiancee, Barbara Kean (Erin Richards). In Gotham‘s first season finale, Leslie and Barbara ended up getting into a vicious fight with one another after Barbara admitted to killing… »

Gotham Season 2 To Introduce Joker And Mr. Freeze, Plus More Morena Baccarin

12 May 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Gotham managed to fill our television screens with several high-profile members of Batman’s rogues gallery in its first season, it played coy with two of the most beloved: the Joker and Mr. Freeze. Thankfully, that’s going to change next season, as it’s been reported that both villains will be a big focus of the show when it returns in the fall.

The news comes from IGN’s Eric Goldman, who was present during Fox’s upfronts presentation earlier this week:

#Gotham will feature “Exciting new villains like The Joker and Mr. Freeze” in Season 2 we were just told. #Upfronts2015

Eric Goldman (@EricIGN) May 11, 2015

Showrunner Bruno Heller has long teased the arrival of fan-favorite supervillain Mr. Freeze, so the announcement comes as no real surprise. I am a bit disappointed that we’ll be seeing more of the Joker next year, however. I thought that the small »
