Coming out the Cannes Film Festival, here’s a first look at director Claire McCarthy’s Ophelia.

Currently in production in Prague, the cast includes Daisy Ridley (upcoming Murder on the Orient Express, Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Two-time Academy Award nominee Naomi Watts (Divergent series, The Impossible), Golden Globe winning and Academy Award nominee Clive Owen (Closer, Children of Men, upcoming Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets), George MacKay (Captain Fantastic, Pride), Devon Terrell (Barry) and Tom Felton (Harry Potter series).

Set in the 14th Century but spoken in a contemporary voice, Ophelia is a dynamic re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Written by Semi Chellas, Ophelia is adapted from the book by Lisa Klein.

Ophelia (Ridley) takes center stage as the Queen’s (Watts) most trusted lady-in-waiting. Beautiful and intelligent, she soon captures the attention of the handsome Prince Hamlet and a forbidden love blossoms. »

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 Release Date Confirmed for 2020?

7 May 2017 3:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After months of speculation, James Gunn finally confirmed last month that he will in fact return to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3. While it will likely be quite some time before we hear any official details about this superhero sequel, James Gunn recently sent out a Facebook message where he teased that the sequel will be released in 2020. Here's the first part of his statement below, where he spoke about making Guardians 2.

"I've spent the past two and a half years making a film, probably a good 95% of my non-sleeping life during that time, and sometimes it seems it all comes down to these few weeks of release in theaters. Let me tell you, it's harrowing. The movie is doing incredibly all over the world, up nearly fifty percent over the first film in most territories, and a breakout hit in countries where it didn't do as well the first time around (hi, »

James Gunn Shares a Message of Gratitude with ‘Guardians’ Fans: ‘We Are All Groot’

7 May 2017 11:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Now that “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is in theaters and dominating the box office in much the same manner as its predecessor, James Gunn is feeling thankful. The writer/director took to Facebook to share his gratitude for all the “heartbroken misfits” who, like him, take joy and comfort in pop culture.

“When I was young I felt utterly alone, at times to the point of suicidal thoughts. I never felt like I belonged, had an incredibly difficult time connecting to other people and, despite having love around me, I had an impossible time experiencing it, or taking it in,” he writes.

“But I found my respite in popular entertainment – Marvel comics, science fiction and horror films, the music of The Sex Pistols, The Replacements, and Queen,” Gunn continues. “Suddenly »

Newswire: James Gunn writes a sweet letter to all his Guardians Of The Galaxy fans

7 May 2017 | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

James Gunn is in a good position right now; his Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is currently tearing it up at the box office, already well on its way to doing significantly better than the already-successful first film. In an effort to take stock of his success, then, Gunn got a little reflective today, posting a letter on Facebook that talks about why he makes these movies, and what characters like Star Lord, Gamora, and Rocket meant to him when he was a kid.

Talking through teenage feelings of isolation, and even suicidal thoughts, Gunn lays out the role pop culture played in helping him feel connected to the world.

But I found my respite in popular entertainment—Marvel comics, science fiction and horror films, the music of The Sex Pistols, The Replacements, and Queen. Suddenly I could see past the bland suburbs where I lived into a more »

‘Guardians 2’ Director James Gunn Thanks Fans, Reveals Past Suicidal Thoughts

6 May 2017 3:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“We are Groot.”

After premiering stateside Thursday night, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is already the No. 1 movie in America thanks to a $140 million domestic debut. So to celebrate, captain James Gunn put aside some time over the weekend to personally thank his fans, but not just for their patronage.

The Marvel-Disney writer/director shared a rather lengthy Facebook post on Saturday covering everything from the sequel’s success, to his own history of being a misfit — just like Star-Lord and his ragtag team of heroes.

“I would be lying if I said I don’t get distracted by the numbers. The first thing I do in the morning is roll over in bed and check my phone for the morning box office reports,” Gunn wrote, further acknowledging his impressive $17 million in Thursday night previews draw. »

For Marvel fans, this is a big weekend. It has finally seen the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in theaters. And by all accounts, it is a giant hit.

To thanks fans, director James Gunn sent a message via Facebook. In it, he opens up about his time spent making the movie, and shares his suicidal thoughts from his earlier years. It's all quite heartfelt and touching. He starts off saying this.

20 April 2017 11:14 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Chadwick Boseman revealed the final photo from the set of Black Panther, with production wrapping today. The image features the actor standing alongside Lupita Nyong'o and writer-director Ryan Coogler, along with a previously-unannounced cast member, Sydelle Noel (G.L.O.W.). While the actress had not been revealed as part of the cast before, she also responded to Chadwick Boseman's tweet, stating that they are "making history," along with the hashtag #ThatsAWrap. While it remains to be seen who she will play, the production wrap now starts the countdown towards the first trailer, which may be coming in a few months.

While Sydelle Noel's character has still yet to be confirmed, it's worth noting that she participated in the Get Out Challenge video from the Black Panther set, with Daniel Kaluuya. It's possible that she's playing one of the Dora Miljae warriors, the elite team of all-female bodyguards »

Smurfs & Gramps Take One Last Swing At Box Office -- The Weekend Warrior

7 April 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out. 

Three New Movies May Have Trouble Making Much of a Mark

After a couple impressive March weekends with one new box office record, and a couple impressive openings, we’re now into April, and of the new movies, there just doesn’t seem like anything can defeat last week’s powerful duo of DreamWorks Animation’s The Boss Baby--which exceeded all predictions with $49 million, taking the top spot from Beauty and the Beast. Ghost in the Shell didn’t even do as well as I thought it may, opening with just $19 million, those late reviews helping to kill its weekend.

Sony Pictures Animation are giving the loveable blue Smurfs a third go at American audiences with The Smurfs: The Lost Village (Sony), after two previous movies, »

Justice League Runtime Revealed, Is It Too Long?

29 March 2017 3:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Those of you who are looking forward to seeing Justice League this November may want to start training your bladder now to avoid a possibly inconvenient bathroom break, because it looks like this movie could be a long one. These massive superhero movies are regularly over two hours, but Justice League's possible runtime might be as massive as the expectations DC fans have placed on it. It looks like Zack Snyder's follow-up to Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice could be just shy of three hours.

This could definitely change come November, but right now IMDb has Justice League's runtime listed at two hours and 50 minutes. Yes, 170 minutes of Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, The Flash, Aquaman and at least a few minutes of Superman (and maybe Green Lantern) fighting Parademons. Oh, and Steppenwolf. To say that this runtime is crazy long would be a bit of an understatement, »

Kathy Bates Hints That Sarah Paulson Might Be Playing Princess Diana in 'Feud' Season 2

26 March 2017 10:59 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Sarah Paulson is joining the second season of Ryan Murphy's Feud -- which will follow the tumultuous relationship between Prince Charles and Princess Diana -- and we might now have a better idea at which historical figure the Golden Globe winner is going to play.

Paulson and actress Kathy Bates sat down alongside their fellow American Horror Story: Roanoke stars at a PaleyFest panel on Sunday, and Bates added fuel to the fire of speculation that Paulson will be starring as the late princess herself.

Watch: Sarah Paulson Reveals Dream ‘Feud: Charles and Diana’ Role -- and It’s Totally Unexpected!

During the panel discussion, Bates referred to Paulson several times as "the people's princess," which is, of course, the nickname given to the beloved Princess Diana long before her untimely death in August 1997, in a fatal car accident in Paris.

It's unclear if Bates was simply joking, intentionally teasing fans, or if she »

Movie Review – T2 Trainspotting (2017)

23 March 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

T2 Trainspotting. 2017

Directed by Danny Boyle.

Starring Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner, Anjela Nedyalkova, James Cosmo, Irvine Welsh, Eileen Nicholas, Kevin McKidd, and Kelly Macdonald.

Synopsis:

After 20 years abroad, Mark Renton returns to Scotland and reunites with his old friends Sick Boy, Spud, and Begbie.

Does the world of cinema need a sequel to Trainspotting? Maybe, maybe not; it’s not something worth getting caught up in or debating over because at the end of the day, Academy-Award-winning director Danny Boyle’s (who also helmed the original masterpiece based off of the novel of the same name by Irvine Welsh, and has an ever-growing impressive resume of classic films consisting of Best Picture winner Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours to name a few) 20 years later window into the lives of these addiction fueled, irresistibly watchable characters is another hyperactively directed, stylish, and hypnotic romp through the Scottish junkie lifestyle. »

Have you heard of the Platino Awards?

17 March 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Though The Film Experience likes to track key foreign awards (examples include the Césars, Goyas, and the Golden Horse, in addition to the massive Oscars circus, those groups proliferate just like American precursors do. I've lost track of how many awards that Asian cinema, for example, has. But how about South America? The Platino awards are relatively new. They're now in their fourth year honoring films from the Ibero-America region, which is to say primarily Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries, i.e. former territories of Spain and Portugal, plus those countries for good measure.

Here's why we should start paying attention to them: in their short existence they've given Best Film to a truly outstanding picture every single time:  Chile's Gloria (2014) an amazing study of a divorcee rebuilding her romantic life with an Oscar worthy performance by Paulina García (we nominated her here); Argentina's rowdy, funny, Oscar nominated and deeply »

Sarah Paulson is ready for Feud, season two!

The second season of the Ryan Murphy anthology series will break down Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s tumultuous relationship.

I wanna play the Queen Mother!” Paulson spills to Et. “I don't think he's gonna let me do that. That might be a bridge too far … he might also be like, 'Oh, lady... no!’ I could play one of the corgis.”

We Just Can't Get Enough of Sterling K. Brown and Ryan Michelle Bathe's Beautiful Romance

7 March 2017 11:00 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Our obsession with Sterling K. Brown has reached an all-time high this year with his performances in American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson and This Is Us, but we've also fallen in love with his sweet, sweet family. The actor has been married to his college sweetheart, Ryan Michelle Bathe, for nine years, and they've given us multiple glimpses of their cute relationship on the red carpet and social media. After meeting and falling in love at Stanford University, the two tied the knot in June 2007 and are now parents to two adorable sons - they've even shared the screen on Army Wives and This Is Us. Sterling may be dreamy in his own right, but it's his relationship with Ryan that really gives us heart eyes. Related:Someone Crown Sterling K.

The Great Wall Review

16 February 2017 10:35 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When I think about China’s Song dynasty, the first thing that comes to mind is Matt Damon. You too, right? A movie like The Great Wall is just screaming for a “William” to save the day, because native warriors surely can’t fend for themselves (duh). A little whitewashing, a dash of CGI monsters and voilà! You’ve got yourself a generic slash-em-up atop, in front of and behind China’s most wondrous landmark. Director Yimou Zhang splatters rocky landscapes with colorful costumes and fiery explosions, but it’s not enough to salvage snooze-worthy drama whenever characters start to jabber. Did you expect something more than swift monster mutilation? I seriously hope not, you crazy loon.

Damon’s William is but a weary mercenary looking for some magical weapon known as “black powder.” The Chinese possess it, so he sets out with a party to “barter.” After a harsh spell of travel, »
