Is Emily Blunt 'Captain Marvel'?

20 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since Marvel announced their massive Phase Three slate back in October, there has been plenty of speculation about who will play Captain Marvel. A number of actresses have been rumored for the role, such as Vikings star Katheryn Winnick, Jessica Chastain, Katee Sackhoff and Emily Blunt. As of now, the project doesn't even have a director attached yet, but Marvel did bring on Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) to write the script. Today, a new rumor surfaced from Meet the Movie Press, that claims Emily Blunt has in fact signed on as Captain Marvel.

This hasn't been confirmed yet, but Heroic Hollywood's El Mayimbe believes that Marvel is "aiming higher" for the role of Carol Danvers. Back in April, a report surfaced that the studio wanted Charlize Theron to star as Captain Marvel, with Angelina Jolie eyed to direct. The report was never confirmed, »

Matt Damon Is A Long Way From Home In New The Martian Screenshots

30 July 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Seeing Matt Damon in an astronaut suit may evoke bad memories for Interstellar fans, but forget Dr. Mann, for in Ridley Scott’s Oscar-tipped space oddity The Martian, the actor is playing an intrepid explorer cast astray on the Red Planet.

With no option but to “science the shit” out of his surrounding supplies, Damon’s lone astronaut is forced to carry out a mini-terraforming mission, growing food on a hostile environment that is designed for anything but. First off, his Mark Watney will be forced to send out an Sos signal from the sun-scorched planet, before hunkering down for a gruelling 4 years as the Ares 3 crew return for the man they left behind.

Lifted from the pages of Andy Weir’s eponymous best-seller, there’s already tremendous amount of buzz surrounding The Martian following its spine-chilling first trailer. With a cast that includes Jessica Chastain, »

'The Martian' Photos Strand Matt Damon on Mars

29 July 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the first trailer for Warner Bros.' The Martian that debuted last month, the studio has released new photos, courtesy of Total Film. These images show Matt Damon's Mark Watney, stranded on the Red Planet all by himself with no way back to Earth. We still have just a few months until Ridley Scott's sci-fi adaptation hits theaters, so these photos will surely be the first of many.

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, Nasa and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring The Martian home, »

'The Martian' and Michael Moore lead 2015 Toronto Film Festival selections

28 July 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival now has something of a slate.  Festival toppers Cameron Bailey and Piers Handling presided over a press conference Tuesday morning where more than 34 films were announced including the world premieres of "The Martian," "The Family Fang" and "Demolition."  It's an intriguing initial lineup for the venerable Canadian institution and something of a steadying the ship after losing some major debuts to Venice, Telluride and the New York Film Festival over the past few years. Well, maybe. The most impressive world premieres include the aforementioned "Demolition" with Jake Gyllenhaal (officially the best opening night film in recent memory), "The Family Fang" with Nicole Kidman, "Legend" with Tom Hardy, "Trumbo" with Bryan Cranston, "The Martian" with Matt Damon and Lance Armstrong doc "The Program" with Ben Foster and Michael Moore's latest documentary, "Where to Invade Next."  Notable films that will have premiered »

20th Century Fox and director Ridley Scott (Exodus: Gods and Kings) are set to continue their long association with an adaptation of acclaimed novel The Cartel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The novel, written by Don Winslow, offers “a fictional take on the notorious Sinaloa drug boss whose daring July 18 escape from a Mexican prison dominated international news headlines.” Scott will direct the film and also produce through his production company Scott Free Films. Shane Salerno (Armageddon) is set to write the scrip.

In addition to the news of Scott’s involvement, Deadline is reporting that Leonardo DiCaprio may be in the running to take on the film’s lead role. No official word on any casting has been forthcoming, but if the deal is closed it would become DiCaprio’s second collaboration with Scott after Body of Lies.

Terrence Malick's 'Knight of Cups' Finally Gets a Release Date

23 July 2015 2:51 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Time to celebrate, Terrence Malick fans: the prolific director's long-awaited film Knight of Cups finally has a release date. According the The Hollywood Reporter, the film will hit theaters March 4, 2016 by way of upstart film distributor Broad Green Pictures. The first time we reported on Knight of Cups was back in November of 2011, and ever since then fans of the reclusive director have been clamoring to see the film. The first trailer dropped back in December, and after receiving a rating shortly thereafter, a detailed synopsis was released ahead of the film's premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February. Malick has his detractors, and I think I count as one of them. While I like The Thin Red Line it took me more than a handful of attempts to finally get through Days of Heaven, and I think the only reasons I enjoyed The Tree of Life are the »

Ridley Scott To Direct El Chapo Inspired Drug Thriller 'The Cartel'

23 July 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Excuse my cynicism if I'm not holding my breath for this project to actually pan out and happen. At least under Ridley Scott's watch. The filmmaker has a great habit of attaching himself to films with the optimistic outlook of directing, only for them to get stuck in development and/or left behind as he gets distracted by something else. Anyway, if the folks behind "The Cartel" want this to ride the headlines, they'll have to move fast. Read More: Watch Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, And More Go To Mars In The First Trailer For Ridley Scott's 'The Martian' "The Cartel" is the title of Don Winslow's latest novel, which tells a tale of a Mexican drug kingpin not unlike the notorious El Chapo (who the author heavily researched for his book), who is currently on the run after escaping from prison.

Brie Larson Starring Opposite Tom Hiddleston in ‘Kong: Skull Island’

23 July 2015 11:17 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Brie Larson is in talks to join Tom Hiddleston in Legendary’s King Kong origin tale “Kong: Skull Island.”

Legendary is also interested in Russell Crowe replacing J.K. Simmons, who recently left the project, but sources say Crowe has not even read a script, let alone agreed to join the project.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts is on board to direct the film, which focuses on the giant gorilla’s mysterious and dangerous world — something previous films have only touched on. Tony Gilroy did the most recent polish to the script, which was first penned by “Godzilla” scribe Max Bornstein. Mary Parent, Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing the movie, which hits theaters on March 10, 2017.

After her breakthrough role in “21 Jump Street,” Larson has stuck to more dramatic films, including her critically acclaimed performance in “Short Term 12.” This film would mark her first major tentpole, as well as her first big action pic, »

What You Didn't Know About Robin Williams

21 July 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Source: Getty / Carl Court Reflections on the passing of Robin Williams last year were mostly focused on the legendary actor's career and onstage persona, but there was much more to Robin than just the man that we knew (and loved) on screen. Robin's private life was full of ups and downs, including his dedication to philanthropy and his ongoing struggles with depression and addiction. Tuesday would have been the beloved star's 64th birthday, so keep reading to learn more about Robin as we reflect on the life and times of a man who touched the lives of so many. He Was a Family Man Robin was survived by his three children - Zak, Zelda, and Cody. Zelda shared a heartbreaking message to her dad after news of his passing broke, saying, "I love you. I'll miss you. I'll try to keep looking up." He also left behind a half-brother, McLaurin Smith-Williams. »

What if Everyone in the 'Jurassic Park' franchise had worn high heels?

If there’s one thing people can’t talking about after seeing “Jurassic World,” it’s how Jessica Chastain Bryce Dallas Howard spends the entire movie running in heels. Whether you think that’s empowering or idiotic is the topic of much heated debate. One thing that isn’t up for debate? That this trailer for a High Heel Edition “Jurassic Park” box set is on point (zing!). [Via A.V. Club]   »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actress

21 July 2015 7:54 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Rooney Mara surprised many by taking home the Best Actress prize at Cannes, as many thought her co-star Cate Blanchett would take it -- or the two would share. Whether we like it or not, the moment marked the beginning of Mara's campaign for a second Oscar nomination (and potential win) for Todd Haynes' "Carol." It's just a matter of whether The Weinstein Company will campaign them both in lead, or place Mara in supporting. The latter seems more like Harvey, and if that's the case we can pretty much guarantee that one of the category's five slots will go to Mara. Who joins her? That depends on how big, small or good dozens of hopefuls' roles are in films we -- in some cases -- won't see until November. The mighty likes of Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Kate Winslet, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Laura Linney, Jennifer Jason Leigh, »

Dare to enter Crimson Peak in this new featurette

20 July 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

We didn’t think it was possible to be any more excited about Crimson Peak, and yet here we are.

A new featurette was just released for Guillermo Del Toro’s latest, and we get confirmation from the actors and director that it’s a true gothic horror, with an emphasis on the horror.

Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, and Del Toro himself give us an inside look at all the main characters, including the house. If you’re not familiar with the plot, it follows Edith (Wasikowska) as she moves into the family home of her new husband (Hiddleston) and his sister (Chastain). Things get a little ghostly when Edith soon realizes the house isn’t all that it seems.

Charlie Hunnam also stars as a childhood friend of Edith’s. This may just be the perfect movie for the Halloween season, so catch it in Cineplex theatres October 16th. »
