Rumor: Marvel Rethinking How to Introduce Ms. Marvel?

12 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Many have been vocal about the need for more female superheroes, perhaps more so than ever, and Kevin Feige has admitted that the team at Marvel is paying attention.  There’s been talk about Ms. Marvel making a big screen appearance for quite some time now.  Remember that rumor from two years ago claiming that Emily Blunt and Ruth Wilson were top choices for the character? In the comics, the members of the Avengers are always changing, so it’ll always be tough to pinpoint who’s in, who’s out, who will join an ensemble film and who will get their own, however, there have been reports floating around claiming that Ms. Marvel could make her way into a close-approaching Marvel film and pave the way to Phase Three in the process.  But now Marvel's plans for introducing Ms. Marvel into the McU may be changing.  Hit the jump for more. »

Meryl Streep’s witch featured in latest Into the Woods image

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to Empire Online we’ve got a new still from Rob Marshall’s (Chicago) upcoming fairy tale musical Into the Woods featuring Meryl Streep (August: Osage County), who plays a witch responsible for putting a curse on a baker and his wife, played by James Corden (One Chance) and Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow). Take a look…

Into the Woods is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.“

Into the Woods is set for release »

Fresh Look At Meryl Streep's Into The Woods Witch

27 August 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Continuing our sneak peek at the winter preview in the new issue of Empire, here's a fresh look at Meryl Streep in Rob Marshall's film adaptation of Into The Woods, the Stephen Sondheim musical that takes a whole lot of fairytales, smashes them together and then royally messes them up.This still clearly comes from the scene, glimpsed in the trailer below, where Streep bursts in on the baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt - wait, does that make no sense as a pairing to anyone else?). They wished to have children, but a curse was laid on the baker's father by the witch decades before, and the only way she's willing to lift it is if they find her four ingredients for a potion. Cue a quest that brings them into conflict with other fairytale characters, some of them rather different to how you remember.And »

Top Five Movies of the Summer

26 August 2014 11:48 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen with his top five movies of the summer…

5. Godzilla

Celebrating 60 years of destruction, the King of the Monsters made his return to the big screen in this American reboot to the classic series. Godzilla saw Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as a husband and wife duo who are trying to reunite after The Big G shows up and starts tearing through cities chasing after alien-like creature M.U.T.O.

Director Gareth Edwards clearly loved the classic Godzilla movies from the character’s 50s and 60s heydays as the movie was a call back to those films. It had a slow, methodical pace and it focused on the human characters and their dramas while Godzilla fought in the background as the ever looming presence and metaphor for nuclear war. Sadly, the movie only takes our fifth spot here as the human element (including »

Anyone who is hating on the Als Ice Bucket Challenge should watch the touching video above. Speaking of Ice Bucket Challenges, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski won for cutest couple, and George W. Bush earned the title of most surprising entry. Wait, did that fish just eat a shark!?

It seems almost every star in Hollywood has been photographed stumbling out of a nightclub at one point during his or her career, but, if rumors (and press interviews) can be believed, some A-listers don't have any qualms about hanging out at sex clubs either. Below are eight celebrities who reportedly favor a naughtier kind of nightlife entertainment: When Emily Blunt and husband John Krasinski decided to do "something crazy" for friend Matt Damon 's birthday, they settled on visiting a London sex club ... and invited Emily's Edge of Tomorrow co-star Tom Cruise along.

Podcast Extra: The Trouble with Diane Keaton

17 August 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

In this free flowing conversational extra [23 minutes]  Joe Reid tells Nick, Katey and Nathaniel  about where his devotion to Diane Keaton has taken him: to the "nothing" of And So It Goes (2014). We discuss the dangers of "comfort zones" and working with paychecks.

The conversation drifts to Edge of Tomorrow and Broadway musicals including Into the Woods. But mostly the 1989 & 1990 Oscar ceremonies. We always end up at Oscars. It's a sickness! Name checked in this extra episode: Emily Blunt, John Lithgow, Graham Greene, Michael Douglas, John Lithgow, Annette Bening, The Silence of the Lambs, Reba McEntire, Michelle Pfeiffer, and the musical stylings of Jasmine Guy

You can listen at the bottom of the post or wait till it shows up on iTunes (which usually takes about a day). Continue the conversation in the comments. We'd love to hear your comments on how it's going with Diane Keaton and your memories of the 89 and 90 Oscars, »

Sneak Peek an extended scene included on the upcoming Blu-ray release of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier", available September 9, 2014, showcasing actress Scarlett Johansson as 'Black Widow':

Johansson first signed on to play Marvel Comics' Russian spy 'Natasha Romanoff' aka the 'Black Widow' in the feature "Iron Man 2" (2009) as an undercover spy for 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' posing as an assistant to 'Tony Stark' (Robert Downey Jr.) aka 'Iron Man'. 

She was cast only after a scheduling conflict forced actress Emily Blunt to drop out of the part.

Johansson then reprised the role in director Joss Whedon's "The Avengers" (2012) confirming that Marvel was "really behind" the character.

‘Edge Of Tomorrow’ Gets Another New Identity?

15 August 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Doug Liman’s summer offering Edge Of Tomorrow has had some trouble locking down a name. The project, which is based on story All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, was originally titled All You Need Is Kill. This was then changed before cinematic release to Edge Of Tomorrow. Now is seems that they still aren’t happy with the name and have sneakily changed it again without actually changing it.

Confused? Remember the poster tagline Live, Die, Repeat? It was catchy wasn’t it? So catchy in fact that the film has now been re-branded as such. Well kind of. As you can clearly see from the packaging below the memorable slogan features all too prominetly, with the title coming at the very bottom, even after Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise’s names.

 

Is this a design oversight or are the studios hoping to trick people into re-watching »

Confusing Edge of Tomorrow Blu-ray box art suggests another name change

15 August 2014 4:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If Warner Bros. were looking to make back some of the money lost of the disappointing box office take for Edge of Tomorrow, this released Us box art may not be the best foot forward.

According to the Blu-Ray box art for the movie, they’ve changed the title again to Live. Die. Repeat., with the Edge of Tomorrow title tucked away in the corner. This is either a brave design choice, or Warner Bros. attempting to distance the DVD and Blu-Ray release from the name Edge of Tomorrow which has, unfairly, been branded a failure.

Check out the box art below:

Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Tom Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously demoted and then dropped—untrained and ill-equipped—into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Cage is killed within minutes, managing to take an Alpha down with him. »

Tom Cruise’s ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Gets Repositioned as ‘Live Die Repeat’ on Home Video

14 August 2014 5:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Studios often lament the fact they have to remarket a movie when it’s about to hit home entertainment platforms, costing them millions in extra advertising dollars.

But in “Edge of Tomorrow’s” case, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment appears to be embracing the chance for a redo and is touting the film’s “Live Die Repeat” slogan over the film’s actual title (see below). The original source material for the time-looping Doug Liman-directed sci-fi actioner was “All You Need is Kill.”

On the film’s DVD and Blu-ray disc packaging, available for purchase Oct. 7, the title doesn’t even appear until Cruise and co-star Emily Blunt in the same line.

Edge of Tomorrow,” although well received by critics, stumbled at the box office, earning $364 million worldwide, and just $99 million in the U.S.

That’s not to say “Live Die Repeat” wasn’t prominent in the film’s original marketing campaign. »

Live. Die. Repeat. Warner Bros. Second Guesses 'Edge of Tomorrow' Title for Blu-ray Release

14 August 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This morning a reader sent me an email with the Blu-ray box art for Edge of Tomorrow as Warner Home Video has announced a October 17 release for the Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt sci-fi feature that premiered this summer to stellar reviews and disappointing box office numbers. They did so because they found the packaging to be hiding a key element... the title. amz asin="B00K2CHWOI" size="small"I wrote more than one article questioning the film's failure, even wondering if the title was the problem, which it now seems WB is considering as well. In fact, they seemed to be considering it only a couple weeks after the film was released as posters starting hitting the internet focusing more on the film's "Live. Die. Repeat." tagline than the actual title. Now, Warner Home Video has all but abandoned the Edge of Tomorrow title altogether. Just below is »

Three Big Studios Handle Much of New Mexico’s Film and TV Work

14 August 2014 12:13 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Where movies tread, soundstages rush in.

As production activity in New Mexico — spurred by generous tax credits and the state’s proximity to Hollywood — has grown significantly over the past two decades, production facilities have sprouted and expanded.

Three large complexes handle the bulk of New Mexico’s interior production: Albuquerque Studios and I-25 Studios in Albuquerque, plus Santa Fe Studios, located just south of Santa Fe. All have benefited from New Mexico’s incentive program, which attracts tentpole features (“Transcendence,” “The Avengers,” “The Lone Ranger”) and TV skeins (FX’s “Better Call Saul,” USA Network’s Anne Heche starrer “Dig”) as it offers a competitive (up to 30%) rebate for qualifying expenditures.

The relationship among these facilities can be characterized as “co-opetition.” “For producers, the decision is more about the economics between Louisiana, Georgia or South Carolina vs. New Mexico,” says I-25 StudiosRick Clemente.
