Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

New Academy Invites Include Edgar Wright, Emma Stone, and Tom Hardy

26 June 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed today a list of 322 artists and executives who have been invited to join. These selections are people that have distinguished themselves by their contributions to the world of film, and those lambasting the Academy for being full of old white men will be happy to see it’s a pleasantly diverse list. Assuming they all accept the invitation, of course. On the actor side of things, highights include David Oyelowo, Tom Hardy, Rosamund Pike, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Carroll Lynch, Emma Stone, Jason Segel, Martin Freeman, and last year’s Best Actor winner Eddie Redmayne. As for directors, the Academy is expanding its reach to a much broader group with selections like Edgar Wright, James Gunn, Lynn Shelton, F. Gary Gray, Ira Sachs, Joe Wright, and Whiplash helmer Damien Chazelle. [caption id="attachment_310166" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via PBS[/caption] Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

Robert Downey Jr. 'Tony Stark' Reports Back To Set Of Captain America: Civil War

25 June 2015 2:20 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's been a while since we got a star sighting on the set of Captain America: Civil War as filming continues in Atlanta, Georgia, but it seems the paparazzi has spotted Robert Downey Jr. while leaving his trailer yesterday. Although he's not in the Iron Man armor, the Avengers star was seen sporting Tony Stark's casuals and goatee, beside longtime driver Jimmy Rich. What do you think?     Directed by Anthony & Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team.

Spider-man Contender Tom Holland Demonstrates His Spidey Skills

21 June 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Though they obviously need to be in tip-top shape, actors don't have to be particularly acrobatic to play superheroes... but in the case of Spider-Man, it definitely can't hurt! We still don't know who our new Webhead is going to be but if it is indeed down to the final two, Tom Holland's Instagram videos should give him an edge over Charlie Rowe - with the fans at least. While we await an official announcement, take a look at Holland's impressive skills below.   Bored A video posted by ✌️ (@tomholland2013) on Jun 21, 2015 at 7:44am Pdt   Fun fun fun A video posted by ✌️ (@tomholland2013) on Jun 21, 2015 at 7:37am Pdt   More fun more fun A video posted by ✌️ (@tomholland2013) on Jun 21, 2015 at 7:40am Pdt Directed by Anthony & Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, »

Fan Made: "Bootleg" Style Captain America: Civil War Trailer

17 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

This fan-made trailer for the Marvel threequel is brilliantly put together, but for whatever reason the editor has chosen to upload it as if it's been leaked from a theater, complete with whooping simpletons making it impossible to hear anything. I mean he's obviously not trying to pass it off as an actual bootleg because he's included a "fan-made" tag in the title! Maybe that adds to the experience? Anyway, even with all the noise and shaky-cam it's pretty damn impressive. Directed by Anthony & Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity.

Marvel Releases A (Slightly) New Official Logo For Captain America: Civil War

11 June 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When Marvel Studios took to Hollywood's El Capitan Theatre last year to awesomely announce Captain America: Civil War among other "Phase 3" movies, they had already prepared an official logo or title card to release online simultaneously. However, with filming in full swing and a number of licensing partners on board for when Captain America, Iron Man, and many other superheroes clash on the big-screen, Marvel has now shared an updated version of that Civil War logo which will likely carry over when we start getting official promo images and posters.

New Set Photos For Captain America: Civil War Feature The First Avenger And Frank Grillo’s Crossbones

19 May 2015 8:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Such is the scale of Marvel’s standalone films now that it’s almost inevitable that each feature will attract significant attention during production, and it’s no different for Joe and Anthony Russo’s much-anticipated Captain America: Civil War. Late last week, we were given our first look at Frank Grillo as the menacing and physically robust Crossbones, and a slew of new set photos showcase the villain going toe-to-toe with Chris Evans’ First Avenger.

Much like those from a few days ago, Anthony Mackie’s Falcon can also be glimpsed amongst the action, which sees the friends engage with Crossbones and his squad of goons in what appears to be an African marketplace. Could this potentially seed the introduction of one Black Panther?

Essentially acting as Avengers 2.5, there’s a lot riding on Civil War as Marvel shifts gears into Phase Three. With an »

Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie And Emily VanCamp Spotted On Captain America: Civil War Set

14 May 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Thanks to Just Jared, we finally have a good first look at Chris Evans (Steve Rogers), Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter), and Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson) as the stars were filming two seperate scenes yesterday in Atlanta, Georgia, for Marvel Studios' highly-anticipated Captain America: Civil War. As previously reported, Evans and VanCamp took part in scenes involving a funeral that's set in London, which makes us think that it's for  Hayley Atwell's former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Peggy Carter. Of course, we won't know for sure until next summer. Meanwhile, the leading man and co-star Mackie were also spotted filming a different scene together at an unknown location.

Marvel TV: synopses for Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter's next seasons

13 May 2015 12:04 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Learn more about Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 and Agent Carter season 2 here, via their new synopses (synopsises? synopsi?)...

If we've learnt one thing this morning, it's that the plural of synopsis is synopses. We did, however, also get a few clues about the next seasons of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter thanks to their new synopses. We still think synopsi sounds better, though. 

Naturally, if you're not up-to-date with either show, these cast-mentioning synopses will spoil the surprise of which characters survive their respective finales. Consider yourselves warned, then.

Here's the synopsis for Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3, to start with...

"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for a dynamic, action-packed third season, as Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) embarks on a deadly new secret mission to protect the world from new threats in the wake of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s wars with Hydra and a rogue faction of Inhumans."
