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. »
Christopher Nolan thinks big. There’s little question he has an impressive imagination and his body of work speaks to those larger issues. Often writing with his brother Jonathan, they have produced a series of films with a polish and gravitas that few other big budget spectacles can match.
And yet, in almost every case, the lapses in story logic rob the movie of its power so you always walk out of the theater shaking your head in bewilderment. The great ideas and execution found in Memento and again in Inception are spoiled in his other films, notably The Dark Knight Rises. Such was the case with Interstellar, coming to home video via Paramount Home Entertainment this Tuesday. The larger theme of where we do go when we ruin the Earth beyond repair is a timely one as more and more reports indicate this is the century we hit the ecological tipping point. »

Confused by some of the overwhelming scientific jargon and explanations in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Michael Caine? If so, you are from alone.
The mathematical reasoning behind the events of Interstellar confused many moviegoers this past holiday season, and that's why Paramount and Warner Bros. rightfully felt a micro-website dedicated to the Interstellar movie science was an appropriate way to promote the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release.
Dubbed the "Bite Size Science" micro-site, this single-page basket of Interstellar movie science lesson snippets delves into everything from black holes to towering tidal waves to the spacecraft seen in the film. It uses illustration more so than verbiage as to get the point across in the most simplistic terms possible.
My recommendation is to not read the entire site until after watching Interstellar at least once. Outright narrative spoilers aren't present but some smaller surprises are openly discussed. »
One word: swoon. Working one of the most intricate double French braid updos we've seen in a minute, Amanda Seyfried stepped out to premiere her latest film, While We're Young, in NYC on Monday, March 23. The 29-year-old actress teamed her ladylike, crimson Valentino dress and matching red sandals with the edgy updo, courtesy of celeb hairstylist Renato Campora. "When I saw Amanda's dress, I knew I wanted the hair to feel youthful, playful, and innocent," Campora, who’s also crafted some of Katy Perry and Jessica Chastain's best hairstyles, [...] »

For me, the stamp of a great movie is how much your excitement, or self-induced hype, matches positively with the final product and in the case of Interstellar, it captures those desires with absolute assurance.
Love or dislike Nolan’s increasingly extensive films, you’ve got to accept that original work on such an expansive level to a worldwide audience is a Hollywood rarity these days. There’s definitely a growing universe of independent projects being backed by the offshoots of large movie corporations but Nolan and his brother have managed once again, like Inception, to pull off one hell of »

'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. »

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 »
In the episode, titled “Inside Man,” Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Castiel (Misha Collins) need a little help from someone in heaven, so they turn to Bobby (Beaver). Elsewhere, Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Rowena (guest star Ruth Connell) face off.
Beaver’s beloved character, Bobby Singer, was killed in the season seven episode “Death’s Door,” but has made several reappearances in spirit form since then. Beaver last appeared on screen in the season nine premiere “I Think I’m Gonna Like It Here” as a manifestation of Sam’s subconscious.
Beaver is currently starring in the play “Verdigris” (which the thesp also wrote) at Theatre West in Los Angeles. He’ll next be seen on the big screen in Guillermo del Toro’s “Crimson Peak,” alongside Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain. »

Contrary to popular belief, Christopher Nolan was not the first Nolan involved with Interstellar. Before the Dark Knight helmer came aboard, Steven Spielberg was mulling taking the reins and would have worked from a script by Jonathan Nolan. Of course, that didn’t happen, and viewers ended up with a visually jaw-dropping and narratively ambitious (if not entirely successful) space epic that explored universal themes of time, love and the human drive to survive. The Christopher Nolan touch made the pic soar in some ways and fall short in others, but now it has come out that if Jonathan Nolan had his way, Interstellar would have been a very, very different film altogether.
Promoting the movie’s upcoming Blu-Ray release, the younger Nolan recently let slip that his original ending for Interstellar would have divided public opinion even more than the final one.

Principal photography recently wrapped on Ridley Scott's The Martian, with the director currently in post-production, working towards a November 25 release. Aside from the script page that was literally sent into outer space back in December, we haven't heard or seen anything about this sci-fi thriller. The story centers on an American astronaut named Mark Watney (Matt Damon) who is stranded on Mars, left behind by his crew after they thought he died in a dust storm. Yesterday, author Andy Weir, who wrote the book of the same name that this adaptation is based on, sent out a photo on his Facebook page, which gives us our first look at Matt Damon on the set.
As it turns out, it seems we have a Super Bowl bet between Matt Damon and his assistant Colin to thank for this photo. Boston native Matt Damon made a bet with Colin, a die-hard Seattle Seahawks fan, »
Last year's blockbuster Interstellar performed quite well at the box office, taking in over $672 million worldwide. But the sprawling and ambitious sci-fi epic had many fans scratching their heads when it came to the ending, which was so complex we even broke it down at length back in November. Screenwriter Jonathan Nolan and producer/science adviser Kip Thorne attended a media event at Caltech's Jet Propulsion Lab to promote the release on Blu-ray and DVD, arriving from Paramount on March 31, where Jonathan Nolan revealed that the original ending was "much more straight-forward." If you haven't seen Interstellar yet, there will be Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
At the end of Interstellar, Matthew McConaughey's Cooper launches himself into the black hole known as Gargantua, in hopes of sending the data compiled on the signularity of gravity back to Earth. He ends up in "the 5th dimension, »
The photo, featuring the film's lead Matt Damon in costume in the desert, was uploaded to Facebook earlier today (March 20).
The image - taken shortly after the Superbowl last month - was shared by author Andy Weir, the writer behind the original novel of the same name.
In the movie, Damon plays Mark Watney - an astronaut who has to fight for survival after his mission is aborted and he is left stranded on Mars.
Filming recently finished on the new sci-fi feature "The Martian" from Ridley Scott, but until now there's been literally no publicity material from the film - be it on-set photos, official stills or trailers. Today though, a new photo has gone up which gives us our first look at Matt Damon on the set via a posting on author Andy Weir's Facebook page.
The shot shows Matt Damon in costume, complete with a name patch for his character Mark Watney, alongside Seattle Seahawks fan Colin. Colin made a bet with Boston native Matt Damon regarding the Super Bowl, a bet the former lost and so now he has to wear a Patriots jersey for a year.

I want to be excited about Ridley Scott's The Martian, based on the novel by Andy Weir, but Scott's track record as of late has left me continually disappointed based on my expectations and that's a tough thing to get over. There have been a few bright spots here and there, things to enjoy about several of his recent movies, but it hasn't all come together for one great product in a very long time. Perhaps that will change with this next film. I hope it does. That said, just below is a first look behind-the-scenes at The Martian as Weir posted the following image to his Facebook page, featuring star Matt Damon in the lead role as Mark Watney, pictured here with his assistant and a peek at the Mars rover used in the film in the background. amz asin="0553418025" size="small"The film centers on an astronaut »

Four years ago, the cinematic world was waiting with baited breath for Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life." It was the first film in six years from the filmmaker, boasting two A-list stars in Brad Pitt and Sean Penn as well as a then completely unknown actress named Jessica Chastain in the lead roles. There was talk of the universe and dinosaurs appearing in the movie, which was also said to be Malick's most personal work yet. Even now, it's a movie that's difficult to encapsulate, but his video essay does a pretty great job as such. The New Yorker's Richard Brody spends just under five minutes unpacking "The Tree Of Life," and it's a reminder of how layered Malick's work is. Spanning time, memory, love and loss, it's a movie that wrestles with big philosophical questions while remaining strikingly intimate. As Brody notes, the film is like "a cinematic self-psychoanalysis" on Malick's behalf. »

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 »

Prepare to see a new, and rather melodic, side of Al Pacino. The acting legend and Oscar winner — renowned for playing mobsters, detectives or drug lords — shows off his surprisingly adept singing chops as a flamboyant, aging rock star in his new comedy and Bleecker Street Films’ debut feature, “Danny Collins.”
“It’s really Al singing in the film, and he worked hard to make his voice sound like what it needed to be,” writer and director Dan Fogelman told Variety at the film’s New York premiere on Wednesday night at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square. “He sings a stripped-down song that Ryan Adams wrote for the film.” And it wasn’t only while the camera was rolling. “On set he would break out in song all the time and get the crew to sing along with him. He would finish a scene and immediately start singing. His spirit was, »

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.
