Entertainment Weekly has debuted three first look images from director Tom Ford’s upcoming thriller Nocturnal Animals featuring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal; check them out here…

Based on the 1993 novel Tony and Susan by Austin Wright, Nocturnal Animals is “a “story inside a story,” in which the first part follows a woman named Susan who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, a man whom she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion. The second element follows the actual manuscript itself, ‘Nocturnal Animals’, and revolves around a man whose family vacation turns violent and deadly. It also continues to follow the story of Susan, who finds herself recalling her first marriage and confronting some dark truths about herself.

Toronto Film Festival to Open With Denzel Washington’s ‘The Magnificent Seven’

26 July 2016 7:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Toronto International Film Festival sounded the opening bell of Oscar season on Tuesday, unveiling a list of high profile films that will use the annual gathering to launch their awards campaigns. Major releases that will be looking to make a splash and score with critics include Denis Villeneuve’s alien invasion thriller “Arrival,” Peter Berg’s disaster drama “Deepwater Horizon,” and Rob Reiner’s historical biopic “Lbj.”

The film festival will kick off on Sept. 8 with the world premiere of “The Magnificent Seven,” a remake of the John Sturges classic that was itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s “Seven Samurai.” It stars Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt as gunslingers who are enlisted to protect a small town, while marking director Antoine Fuqua’s third time at the festival. He previously screened “Training Day” and “The Equalizer” at Toronto. Sony and MGM will release the film stateside on Sept. »

A Domestic Feud Brews In First Peek At Tom Ford Thriller Nocturnal Animals

25 July 2016 1:32 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Picture the scene: A happily-married woman, Susan (Amy Adams), inadvertently opens up the door to her past upon reading a manuscript titled Nocturnal Animals.

Hailing from an ex-husband (Jake Gyllenhaal) that she severed contact with some seven years ago, it’s the content of said script that really causes Susan’s skin to crawl, chronicling a family under siege by hoodlums on the highway late at night. The question then becomes, is it a harbinger of things to come?

That is, essentially, the elevator pitch to Nocturnal Animals, Tom Ford’s latest feature and the director’s first since A Single Man back in 2009. Pegged to land in the awards-friendly corridor of November, Entertainment Weekly has today peeled back the curtain on that domestic feud, as Gyllenhaal has a run-in with the law and Amy Adams, housed up safely in her home, ponders the unnerving situation at hand. »

Exclusive First Look at Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams in Tom Ford's New Thriller Nocturnal Animals

25 July 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Six years ago, critics and audiences were taken completely by surprise by A Single Man. The sensitive, stylish drama, adapted from a 1964 novel by Christopher Isherwood, was about one day in the life of a dapper college professor (Colin Firth) who has decided to kill himself rather than live with the grief of his lover's death. For his poignant performance, Firth was nominated for an Academy Award. He lost - but when Firth scored the Best Actor Oscar the next year for The King's Speech, he took a moment to acknowledge A Single Man's first-time director from the podium: "And »

First Look at Tom Ford’s ‘Nocturnal Animals’ Starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal

25 July 2016 9:31 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After a seven-year gap, fashion designer and director Tom Ford is following up the success of his directorial debut A Single Man with Nocturnal Animals, which has just been given a first look. The thriller follows an art gallery owner, Susan Morrow (Amy Adams), who reads deeply (perhaps too deeply) into the words of her ex-husband’s (Jake Gyllenhaal) latest novel, one she believes is a threat and tool of revenge against her. Paranoia and fear ensue as Susan must discover whether or not words are just words.

Ford told EW that, in penning the adaptation of Austin Wright‘s Tony and Susan, he added much to Adams’ character — including by casting lookalike Isla Fisher as her story-within-the-story double. Ford is a man certainly interested in aesthetics, and Animals is lensed by Seamus McGarvey, whose back catalogue includes GodzillaAtonement, and We Need to Talk About Kevin.

[Review] The Legend of Tarzan

1 July 2016 5:31 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

They don’t make movies like this anymore. Much has already been said about the death of Hollywood star power, the emergence of brands as movie stars, and their contribution to the general “meh” of blockbusters at large, but with The Legend of Tarzan, director David Yates and Warner Bros. seem to be content in tossing yet another damp rag into that conversation. It’s a film both classically old and boorishly modern. In the true spirit of the 2016 blockbuster, it struggles to find the right amount of charisma to propel towards something worth talking about.

Things kick off well enough, abandoning a relatively tired origin story structure in favor of expedience. We meet our titular vine-swinger (Alexander Skarsgård) not in the Congo, but dressed to the nines as John Clayton III in his family home. After establishing motives that are muddled at best, Clayton begrudgingly sets out to Africa »

Why are the stakes in Marvel movies so low?

21 June 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on the low stakes in Marvel movies…

There are so many things the Marvel movies have done right. They’ve launched a new era of studio blockbusters, faithfully adapted some of their most exciting characters with care, and delivered consistently entertaining feature films that, for the most part, are well worth the price of admission.

Sure, Avengers: Age of Ultron kind of sucked and Iron Man 2 was an unsalvagable mess. But more often than not Marvel Studios delivers entertaining and exciting popcorn fare.

The main criticism Marvel has received over the years is how weak their rogues gallery has been. Most of the films feature fairly unspectacular ‘one and done’ villains who really don’t offer much more than a warm body (or bodies) for our heroes to punch repeatedly. Every once in a while we’re blessed with Tom Hiddleston’s Loki or Daniel Bruhl’s amazing Zemo. »

Doug Liman in Talks to Direct Adaptation of YA Novel ‘Chaos Walking’

10 June 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Bourne Identity” director Doug Liman is in negotiations to direct Lionsgate’s adaptation of “Chaos Walking.”

Based on the popular YA novel, the studio has been trying to get the film off the ground for sometime with Robert Zemeckis initially attached to helm from a script by Charlie Kaufman.

If a deal closes, Liman would first shoot the Amazon actioner “The Wall” with Aaron Taylor-Johnson and then segue into “Chaos Walking” in early 2017.

Jamie Linden penned the most recent script with Doug Davison producing.

Chaos Walking: The Knife of Never Letting Go,” published in 2008 as the first book in a trilogy, is set in a dystopian world where all living creatures can hear each other’s thoughts.

The book is centered on the only boy in a town of men, who makes a startling discovery that forces him to flee with only his dog in hand. With the townspeople in pursuit, »

I Don't Care What Anyone Says, Quicksilver Is the Best X-Men Character of Them All

31 May 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Mystique is awesome and Magneto kicks ass, but truth be told, neither of them can compare to the mutant that holds the the key to my heart: Quicksilver. Just to be clear, I'm talking specifically about the Quicksilver played by Evan Peters in the X-Men movies, not the Aaron Taylor-Johnson version from Avengers: Age of Ultron, who is Ok, I guess. Peters is back as the scene-stealing speedster in X-Men: Apocalypse, and his appearance is just as glorious as his debut in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Take a minute to revisit why he's such a vital part of the X-Men universe. »

X-Men Apocalypse’s Alexandra Shipp Wants Storm And Black Panther To Share The Screen

15 May 2016 11:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Spider-Man’s inclusion in the superhero battle royale that was Captain America: Civil War has shown executives and audiences alike that corporate synergy can be a wonderful thing, Marvel Comics is still spread across an array of big-name studios, meaning that bringing together some characters known for rubbing elbows in comic-book panels can be a lot more complicated on the big screen. However, that’s not stopping some actors in different camps from vocalizing their desires to see such team-ups happen.

Recently, Alexandra Shipp, who plays Storm in this month’s X-Men: Apocalypse, told The Obsev that one of her professional pipe dreams involves bringing her mutant hero together with Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther for a blockbuster outing.

“I want that movie so bad. I’ve got a pitch, I’m like coming up with a vision board, I want this movie to happen,” she said. “Honestly it »

X-Men: Apocalypse Star Evan Peters Weighs In On Being The Last Quicksilver Left Standing

X-Men: Apocalypse Gallery 1 of 30   

Click to skip

Back when it became apparent that we would see two Quicksilvers on the big screen at the same time, fans delighted in claiming that Fox’s decision to include the speedster in X-Men: Days of Future Past was little more than a petty response to Marvel including him in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Well, for those who don’t know, it actually came about because the character (and his sister, the Scarlet Witch) have been members of the X-Men and Avengers in the past, allowing them to appear in both film franchises. However, what no one expected was for Evan Peters’ take on Quicksilver to end up overshadowing Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s.

The McU version ultimately ended up being killed off, so there’s now no way to compare them when the son of Magneto returns in X-Men: Apocalypse, and Peters is actually pretty disappointed about that. »

Godzilla 2 Loses Director Gareth Edwards

13 May 2016 12:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just a few days ago, Warner Bros. and Legendary made some changes to its release schedule, pushing Godzilla 2 back nine months from June 8, 2018 to March 22, 2019, while issuing a May 29, 2020 release date for Godzilla Vs Kong, which ties into next year's Kong: Skull Island. Now that that Godzilla 2 has a new release date, the project has suffered a setback, with director Gareth Edwards parting ways with the project. It isn't clear yet if Warner Bros. and Legendary have any candidates in mind to replace the filmmaker, but with nearly three years to go until this hits theaters, there is still plenty of time to find a directorial replacement.

Deadline reports that the split between Gareth Edwards and Warner Bros. was amicable, and that both parties agreed on the filmmaker parting ways before the new release date was announced. This report reveals that the filmmaker had several projects he wanted »
