Earlier in the week it was reported by 'Bum Juice' scoop extraordinaire El Mayimbe at Latino Review that Carol Danvers had been cast for the Marvel Phase Three adventure Captain Marvel, and would be making her debut appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Fuel was added to the fire when toy photos from the movie appeared online that included Captain Marvel in the line-up. While this rumor has been lingering around for awhile, Nerdist now calls it completely false, saying the character is not going to appear on the big screen this summer:
"A source close to production confirms that Captain Marvel will not appear in Avengers 2."
It is not known, however, if the first part of Latino Review's scoop is correct. Did Marvel already cast the role of Carol Danvers? If that is true, we haven't heard whom landed this coveted part in Marvel's Phase Three line-up just yet. »
Who wants an early Easter bonus feature from the upcoming Home Entertainment release of Disney’s Into The Woods? Well, join us as we head into this entertaining exclusive behind-the-scenes clip before it’s released on May 18th on Blu-ray and DVD.
For those who only know a little, Into The Woods is a modern twist on the Brothers Grimm fairy tales, entwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. The humourous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).
In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.
With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.
Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.
For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »
'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' star Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' trailer: Movie stunt combo "Desperate times. Desperate measures," says Tom Cruise aka Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation trailer aka the Mission: Impossible 5 and/or MI5 trailer. Whatever you call it, that particular line could be read in a number of ways: Tom Cruise's superstardom is in the doldrums – at least that's what we hear from those who see reality only through U.S.-focused lenses – and he needs all the box-office help he can get. Hence, MI5. Hollywood is in dire need of a mammoth domestic blockbuster following a year of mediocre-performing tentpoles at the U.S. box office. Hence, MI5. The world's socioeconomic fabric is about to unravel. Hence, MI5 – so humankind can go with a bang. Not only with a bang, but with mirth as well. »

Natural women unite: "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical" will be adapted into a feature film. The recent hit Broadway musical earned star Jessie Mueller a Tony and should be just as thrilling as a movie since it features so many classic Carole King jams. "It's Too Late" is the definitive breakup anthem of all time, everyone. But just one thing: Who the hell is going to play Carole King? I support the idea of Jessie Mueller reprising her stage role, but Streisand-type stage-to-screen moves remain pretty rare. I was personally shocked when Samantha Barks ended up in the film version of "Les Miz" after starring in London's West End production. Her face should be printed on all European currency for achieving that milestone. So just in case Mueller doesn't get to fly her tapestry on the silver screen, here are a couple of suggestions that seem feasible. Emily Blunt I »

Just one of the surprises at Marvel Studio's Phase Three announcement last year, Captain Marvel, due to hit our screens on November 2nd 2018, will be the first female led super hero movie to be the part of the McU, and one that has seen quite a few casting rumours (with everyone from Gina Carano to Emily Blunt apprently up for the role) doing the rounds since it was announced. But the latest rumour surrounding the movie is the most interesting yet, with Latino Review reporting that the role of Carol Danvers, Captain Marvel's alter ego, has already been cast, and we will be seeing her a lot sooner than expected. Say, like, Avengers: Age of Ultron. That soon. This is in keeping with comments that Joss Whedon let slip about there being previously unannounced heroes showing up in the highly anticipated sequel, but I think it is safe to assume »

There isn't much we know about the Marvel Phase Three adventure Captain Marvel quite yet, although director James Gunn revealed earlier this month that the character won't appear in his Guardians of the Galaxy 2 sequel. If a new unconfirmed rumor is true, we may be seeing Captain Marvel much sooner than that anyway. Latino Review's El Mayimbe is reporting that the character has already been cast, and will have a brief cameo appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron, arriving in theaters May 1. Here's what he had to say below.
"Hot #Marvel #Rumor About #Captainmarvel #Spoiler Apparently, from what I'm being told, the rumor is that the studio has cast the role of Carol Danvers & keeping it top secret. I'm also being told we will first see her in #Avengers #AgeofUltron as originally written in previous drafts of the screenplay. In terms of the standalone film, the Marvel brain trust has »
While Into the Woods has a number of stars--hello, Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine, and Anna Kendrick--it was Billy Magnussen’s leather pants that stole all the attention when the film first opened in December.
“The leather pants were great--Chris is jealous he didn’t get to wear them,” Magnussen tells ETonline of the costume he wore as Rapunzel’s prince opposite of Pine’s royal charmer of Cinderella (Kendrick).
News: Go Behind the Scenes of 'Into the Woods'
“Those pants were so into me,” the 29-year-old actor says, expressing an appreciation for the skintight costume. “[Designer Colleen Atwood and I] went through about five different pairs before we got them. It was all about the lunge. We had to be able to do the lunge--that was the stipulation.”
The lunge he’s referring to happens during the standout duet of “Agony” he performed with Pine. Seen frolicking in the water and ripping their shirts to reveal their sculpted »
Senior Staff Writer Scott Davis looks at this week’s big Blu-ray releases in the Us…
All roads have led to this point, as they say. The final film in both The Hobbit Trilogy and J.R.R. Tolkien adaptations (at least for now), director Peter Jackson bids a fond farewell to Hobbits, Orcs and Wizards alike. Martin Freeman, Ian e, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lily and Orlando Bloom return amongst the stellar cast, as Bilbo and friends face the final battle to save Middle-earth from the deadly Smaug.

James Corden makes his big debut as host of The Late Late Show tonight on CBS and Et got a special invitation to check out his swanky new set! Before he officially takes over the reigns as the next big late-night star, here are seven reasons you should tune-in!
1. The Brit Factor
Born in the U.K., Corden first became a star on British television in 2000 when he starred in the U.K. series Fat Friends. His brand of humor will play well against the A-listers sitting on his couch and the folks at home watching for theirs. Plus, doesn't everything just sound so much better with an accent?
2. He's got some serious acting chops!
The 35-year-old actor/writer/producer/singer co-starred opposite Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt in Disney's musical adaptation of Into the Woods, and won a Tony for his role as Francis Henshall in One Man, Two Guvnors in 2012. In 2008, he won a BAFTA »
Newly passed legislation makes it easier for feature film productions to qualfy for the 30% labour credit.
New Mexico legislature has made key improvements to the state’s tax incentive programme for film and television production.
The newly passed legislation is in keeping with the goals of both the Governor and legislative leaders to pass substantive economic development bills during New Mexico’s current legislative session, which ends Saturday [March 21].
Coming two years after the state passed the “Breaking Bad Bill” that increased financial incentives for series television to 30%, the legislation extends the 30% credit to stand-alone pilot episodes and makes it easier for feature film productions to qualify for the 30% labour credit by expanding the definition of “qualified facilities”.
Dana Arnold, CEO of Albuquerque Studios, commented: “We want to thank the legislators and the Governor for promoting job creation and small business growth in New Mexico. These bills make New Mexico even more competitive and attractive for producers, while »

For those who got to see Rob Marshall’s adaptation of Into the Woods know it’s a magical experience watching Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, and Anna Kendrick bring these fabled characters to life on the big screen.
The film is also a big deal for any Stephen Sondheim fan. The prolific composer -- responsible for Company, Into the Woods, Sweeney Todd, and other shows -- has been making his mark on musical theater for over 40 years.
And considering the pressure of living up to Sondheim’s legacy and doing his Broadway musical justice, you can’t blame the film’s cast for being stressed -- especially Anna Kendrick, who performed an updated version of “On the Steps of the Palace.”
“It was great and terrifying to be in the recording studio and have Stephen Sondheim knock on the door in between takes and »
Michael Buble isn't proud of his past behavior -- specifically when it comes to his relationships.
In a candid new interview, the 39-year-old singer opens up to Canadian entertainment show eTalk, admitting his not so nice behavior when it comes to his exes.
"I was a jerk and I was careless and reckless with the hearts of women I was with," he says bluntly. "And I got my karma. I earned it. I got my butt and heart kicked and it hurt me enough that I looked in the mirror and I didn't want it to happen again."
Photos: They Dated?! Surprising Celebrity Hookups
Could Buble be referencing his breakup with The Devil Wears Prada actress Emily Blunt? The two split in 2008 after three years together amid rumors he cheated, and the "Haven't Met You Yet" singer has talked about needing therapy post-split. But both Buble and Blunt have clearly moved on from their failed relationship. Blunt »
Universal Pictures has continued to push forward with its prequel tale to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman by adding three actors into the mix to form part of the new dwarfs set to feature in The Huntsman.
Similarly to the original film, three British actors have been cast in the roles alongside the returning Nick Frost as Nion. Gavin & Stacey stars Rob Brydon and Sheridan Smith have joined the cast, as has Alexandra Roach who co-starred in 2013’s One Chance.
Cedric Nicolas-Troyan makes his directorial debut with the film, which has Chris Hemsworth (The Hunstman) and Charlize Theron (Ravenna) reprising their roles from the original, joined by Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow) and Jessica Chastain (A Most Violent Year).
The prequel is set in the same world as the previous film, but tells a new chapter in the story which focuses on the Huntsman and Ravenna’s lives before »

Live and learn! Michael Buble, who is now married and a dad, admitted to Toronto’s eTalk that when he was younger, he was kind of a cad when it came to his ex-girlfriends. “I was a jerk and I was careless and reckless with the hearts of women I was with,” Buble, who dated Emily Blunt for three years until 2008 after he was caught in bed with another woman, said. “And I got my karma. I earned it. I got my butt and heart kicked and [...] »
Rob Brydon ("The Trip"), Alexandra Roach ("Cuban Fury") and Sheridan Smith ("Jonathan Creek") have all signed on to play three new dwarfs in Cedric Nicolas-Troyan's "The Huntsman," the upcoming prequel to 2012's "Snow White and the Huntsman" which is in development at Universal Pictures.
Nick Frost has already signed on to reprise his dwarf role from the original, at the time it was indicated that the film would only feature two dwarfs. Seems that stance has been reconsidered, though Frost is the only actor who played a dwarf in the first film who is coming back for the sequel.
Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Ian McShane, Johnny Harris, Ray Winstone and Brian Gleeson played the other dwarfs in 'Snow White' and aren't expected back - though Jones and Marsan were said to have been contacted about the job.
