What Does the Civil War Plot Mean for Thanos in Future Avengers Films?

22 October 2014 10:37 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

As previously announced, Marvel is bringing its epic “Civil War” storyline to the big screen, beginning with Captain America 3. Assuming that such a large story is not limited to one film, it should play a part in Marvel’s Phase Three plan, leading into Avengers 3. But what about Thanos? Where does he fit into all this?

When Thanos made his surprise appearance in the closing credits of the Avengers—much to the delight of comic fans—it was assumed by most that he would be the Big Bad for the second film. However, we now know that’s not the case, as a certain malevolent robot voiced by James Spader has taken the slot of the main baddie in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Since then, it’s been assumed that Thanos—now played by Josh Brolin, as seen in Guardians of the Galaxy—would be the antagonist for the »

Relativity picks up Kevin Costner-led race drama ‘Black or White’

17 October 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After a quiet bow at the Toronto International Film Festival, a distributor is finally coming to the rescue of writer-director Mike Binder's racially charged drama "Black and White." Excuse me, "Black or White," because someone owned the rights to the former and producers couldn't get it cleared. Sharing a title with a Michael Jackson track is easier, apparently. According to Deadline, Relativity is wrapping a deal to acquire domestic rights for the film, which stars Kevin Costner, Octavia Spencer, Gillian Jacobs, Anthony Mackie, and Jennifer Ehle. The story of a widower engaging in a custody battle over the mixed race granddaughter he helped raise, "Black or White" earned mixed reviews out of Tiff. Our own Gregory Ellwood wasn't a fan, noting that Binder's film "simply wants too much" and that Costner's alcoholic character doesn't play.

Relativity Buys Kevin Costner-Starrer ‘Black Or White’

17 October 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Relativity is wrapping a deal to acquire U.S. rights to Black Or White, the Mike Binder-directed drama that stars Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer. A racially charged drama that created strong buzz when it premiered at Toronto under the title Black And White. That title couldn’t be cleared, which is why it changed to “Or.” The film will be released in time to qualify for the Oscar race. That could mean a platform before year’s end, but those details are being worked out. Relativity will release the film through its newly formed multcultural division.

The drama is inspired by the true story of a grieving widower, who is also an angry alcoholic (Costner), and his struggle to retain custody of the young mixed-race granddaughter he and his recently deceased wife were raising. Spencer co-stars as the grandmother on the opposite side of the dispute. Gillian Jacobs, »

'Captain America 3' Avengers Team and Title Revealed?

14 October 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last night, Marvel Studios dropped a bombshell, with the news that Robert Downey Jr. is in talks to return as Tony Stark in Captain America 3, a movie that will adapt the Civil War comic book story line and forever change the Marvel Cinematic Universe. New details have emerged today that reveal Iron Man may be joined by a number of other Avengers, along with details on the possible title. There will be potential spoilers for Avengers: Age of Ultron below, so read on at your own risk.

Earlier this month, we reported that The Avengers 3 will feature a whole new team of superheroes, which was thought to stem from the main stars' contracts running out, and the desire to save their biggest stars for another huge movie. It's looking more and more like Captain America 3 will be that movie, which Badass Digest is calling "Avengers 2.5."

Filming Begins on David Gordon Green’s Our Brand Is Crisis Starring Sandra Bullock, Anthony Mackie, Zoe Kazan & Billy Bob Thornton

13 October 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Filming is underway in New Orleans on director David Gordon Green’s (“Pineapple Express,” “George Washington”) feature adaptation of the critically acclaimed 2005 documentary Our Brand Is Crisis, starring Oscar winners Sandra Bullock (“The Blind Side”) and Billy Bob Thornton (“Sling Blade”).

When a group of American consultants accept the challenge of getting an unpopular Bolivian president re-elected, they realize they need help. Tracking down retired maverick political consultant Jane Bodine (Bullock) to her cabin in the woods, they persuade her to lead the team—a decision they quickly come to regret, as “Calamity” Jane begins to live up to her nickname, unleashing her very own brand of chaos on the campaign.

Just as all seems lost, the loathsome Pat Candy (Thornton), Jane’s worst enemy, arrives in town to work for the opposition. Suddenly things become personal and as the battle begins the consultants get to see Jane the legend in action. »
