‘Agent Carter’ Finale Postmortem: Producers Talk Surprise Cameo, What’s Next for Peggy

24 February 2015 10:15 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen the “Agent Carter” season one finale, titled “Valediction”

Agent Carter” ended its first season with an emotional gut-punch and then — in true Marvel fashion — with a tantalizing tease, all but guaranteed to leave viewers wanting more and further illustrating the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s central motto — “everything is connected.” The hour saw Peggy (Hayley Atwell) and her allies, Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy) and Agents Jack Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) and Daniel Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) succeed in defeating the manipulative Dr. Faustus/Fennhoff (Ralph Brown) and saving the city. But in the episode’s final moments, the newly incarcerated hypnotist met his equally terrifying cellmate, Dr. Zola (Toby Jones), the Hydra scientist who became the architect of the Winter Solider program that turned Captain America’s (Chris Evans) former ally, Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), into a »

Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow Will Return For ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ Colossus Will Appear In ‘Deadpool’

17 February 2015 2:42 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There's convergence of comic book news this afternoon, so let’s be a little bit quick about it. You’re probably already assuming that Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johansson, will be back for “Captain America: Civil War” given how integral her character was to ‘The Winter Soldier,’ but in case you had doubts, it’s now confirmed. Speaking to Chinese press, directors Joe and Anthony Russo said Johansson will indeed reprise the role. "I had done my research, and the Black Widow character resonated with me. She is dark and has faced death so many times that she has a deep perspective on the value of life," Johannson recently teased about the character. As you probably assumed, also returning is Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier. The news begs the question though: will ‘Civil War’ be overcrowded with characters? Beyond Black Widow, Captain America, and the Winter Soldier, we »

Dylan O’Brien and Logan Lerman are being “considered” for new Spider-Man; Marc Webb will not return

11 February 2015 6:53 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 24 hours, there was some rather exciting news yesterday announced that Spider-Man has joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since then, some names have been banded around by the Internet on who could be the new Spidey once it was revealed that Andrew Garfield would not be suiting up for a third outing as the wall crawler.

Well, let the casting rumour games begin.

According to Variety and their sources “close to the studio”, Sony are “considering” Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner) and Logan Lerman (Fury), but no official meetings have been set up yet. The site also claims that this version of Spider-Man will indeed be a teenager once again in high school, but no decision has been made on whether they will go with Peter Parker or Miles Morales. Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) will also not be returning to direct. »

First look at Meryl Streep in Ricki and the Flash

6 February 2015 2:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve got our first look at Meryl Streep in what will presumably be her next Oscar-nominated role as a hard-rocking front-woman in director Jonathan Demme and screenwriter Diablo Cody’s upcoming comedy Ricki and the Flash

In a film loaded with music and live performance, Streep stars as Ricki, a guitar heroine who gave up everything for her dream of rock-and-roll stardom, but is now returning home to make things right with her family.  Streep stars opposite her real-life daughter Mamie Gummer, who plays her fictional daughter; Rick Springfield, who takes on the role of a Flash member in love with Ricki; and Kevin Kline, who portrays Ricki’s long-suffering ex-husband.

Ricki and the Flash will open in the UK on August 7th, with a cast that also includes Audra McDonald and Sebastian Stan.

First Image From Ricki And The Flash Showcases Meryl Streep’s Rock Edge

4 February 2015 1:23 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Is there anything Meryl Streep can’t do? In the first image from her next effort, Ricki And The Flash, the Oscar-winner debuts a previously-unseen side to her talents. Brandishing a pristine Fender and a flowing mane of hair, the still showcases a devil-may-care attitude to Streep that’s seldom seen on screen. It’s hardly a revealing image, but it serves as a tasty warm-up before the trailer lands.

In the lead role of Ricki, Streep plays an ageing rocker who abandoned her family years before to pursue her rock n’roll lifestyle. When her dreams of superstardom come crashing down after a long stint playing in dive bars and such, she calls up her ex-husband (Kevin Kline) with the hopes of reconnecting with her children. Leaving California behind, she ups sticks and returns to New York with her tail between her legs to reinstate herself as the family matriarch. »

First Picture of Meryl Streep as a Rocker in 'Ricki and the Flash'

4 February 2015 10:35 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

TriStar Pictures has chosen People magazine as the outlet to offer the first look at Meryl Streep as an aging rocker in Jonathan Demme's upcoming movie Ricki and the Flash. Pictured above, Streep plays a woman who abandoned her family when she was younger to find fame and fortune as a rock star in California. Decades later, she returns home to be a mother again after her daughter (played by Streep's real life daughter Mamie Gummer) goes through a divorce. Kevin Kline, rocker Rick Springfield, Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Audra McDonald ("Private Practice") round out the cast. Written by Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult), the pic is set to hit theaters on August 6 after previously being slotted for a late June release, obviously for awards reasons. »

Chadwick Boseman talks Black Panther, says they’re in a “brainstorming phase”

4 February 2015 6:07 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Black Panther is set to make his big screen debut next year in Captain America: Civil War and the man playing him, Chadwick Boseman, has spoken out about the development of his character.

“I think right now, it’s just going through the possibilities of what he can do,” Boseman teased to Cbr when asked for specifics. “It’s a brainstorming phase, trying to figure out what it looks like — I’m going to be as vague as I can! — what it looks like and what it should feel like in certain moments. But just going through [the material], because there’s always a difference from one story to the next of who he is — trying to find a way to merge those things together. Because I think that’s always fun when these movies work: it’s when people see several things satisfied at one time. And I think that’s »

Sundance Reviews: 'Results,' 'Nasty Baby,' 'Strangerland' and more

2 February 2015 2:43 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you couldn't tell from the reactions on social media, It was a very good year in Park City (well, at least on the narrative side). The 2015 Sundance Film Festival featured a dramatic competition with far fewer bad eggs than usual, a Next slate which once again got people excited, a number of the noncompetitive premieres that surprised (we're looking at you "Brooklyn"), two closing night films that were reportedly pretty good (a rare occurrence for any film festival) and acclaimed movies that landed distribution deals which you'll be talking about all year long.   While we endeavored to post as many individual reviews as possible the intensity of Sundance often makes it quite difficult to review everything.  Especially, when you've seen 23 1/2 movies over 8 days.*  Therefore, this post will include a number of capsule reviews for films HitFix has not individually reviewed, my thoughts on films Drew McWeeny and Dan Fienberg »

Anthony Mackie says Captain America: Civil War “is gonna be so much better” than Avengers: Age of Ultron

30 January 2015 1:43 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems there’s not a week goes by without Anthony Mackie taking the opportunity to big up the Phase Three-launching Marvel threequel Captain America: Civil War, and the Captain America: The Winter Soldier star has been at it again this week, telling Wzyz-tv Detroit that the 2016 release “is gonna be so much better than” Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

“The way I look at it, Captain America [The Winter Soldier] was a spin-off of Avengers, but it was so much better than Avengers. With the new Avengers [Age of Ultron] coming out, the trailer that came out, it’s gonna be 10 times better than Avengers. So, [Captain America: Civil War] is gonna be so much better than Avengers 2. It can’t be Avengers 2.5, it’s like Avengers 3.8. It’s so far past where Avengers is gonna be this summer. Just having read [Civil War script], and seen the specs of what they’re gonna do, it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen. »

Sundance 2015: The Festival of Sex on the Slopes

29 January 2015 4:08 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When it came time to shooting a gay threesome scene in “I Am Michael,” which premieres Thursday night at the Sundance Film Festival, first-time director Justin Kelly erred on the side of caution. He didn’t want to make the encounter among his three actors — James Franco, Zachary Quinto and Charlie Carver — too risqué for fear of alienating moviegoers from the story about Michael Glatze, a gay activist who renounces his homosexuality and turns to God.

“I wanted to appeal to a wider audience,” Kelly says. “All my gay filmmaker friends thought it would be awesome if this film could be something that Christians would see.”

Kelly filmed the buzzed-about love scene in two takes, in a wide shot, so it wouldn’t look gratuitous. In retrospect, he regrets not nudging his actors to go further. “I kind of do wish they took their underwear off, to be honest,” Kelly says. »

The Bronze Movie Review

Title: The Bronze Director: Bryan Buckley Starring: Melissa Rauch, Gary Cole, Thomas Middleditch, Sebastian Stan, Haley Lu Richardson, Cecily Strong The phenomenon of the Olympics is one wholly its own – a worldwide competition event that pits countries against countries as their best athletes are judged on how they perform under pressure. It is clearly an exhausting and extensive ordeal for the host city, as seen with Sochi this past year, but there is also an element of it that gets taken home to each home country, particularly the United States. Terming a winning athlete a “national hero” is not uncommon for small towns all across America, and this biting  [ Read More ]

Chris Messina Got Very Naked at Sundance

27 January 2015 6:36 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Let’s recap the R-rated bounty we’ve already received at what Vulture Kyle has dubbed “The Sundance of Sex”: Sebastian Stan was involved in the most gymnastic penetration ever captured onscreen; Jack Black hooked up with a certain paramour of Liz Lemon’s; Alexander Skarsgård took his clothes off to aid the sexual awakening of a teenager; Jason Sudeikis digitally pleasured a bottle of green tea; and Adam Scott and Jason Schwartzman danced full-frontal while swinging their prosthetic dicks with joy.As of today, add Chris Messina to that august list. Fans of The Mindy Project will be thrilled to know that Messina strips down completely in Joe Swanberg’s Digging for Fire. Messina’s part isn’t large, but what you see … I’m blushing too much to finish this sentence, but trust that unlike the full-frontal in The Overnight, it’s all real.

Robert Downey Jr. talks Captain America: Civil War, Daniel Bruhl will reportedly play Baron Zemo

The latest issue of Empire Magazine has already given us some new images from Avengers: Age of Ultron [see here and here], as well as comments from Joss Whedon suggesting he won’t be back in the director’s chair for Avengers: Infinity War [see here], and now we have some quotes from Robert Downey Jr. about the upcoming Phase Three ensemble Captain America: Civil War, which will see Iron Man squaring off against Steve Rogers:

“They said to me, ‘If we have you, we can do this, or Cap 3 has to be something else’,” said Downey with regards to how the project came around. “It’s nice to feel needed. And at this point it’s about helping each other, too. I look at it as a competition and I go, ‘Wow, maybe if these two franchises teamed up and I can take even a lesser position, with people I like and directors I respect, »

Daily | Sundance 2015 | Bryan Buckley’s The Bronze

26 January 2015 6:18 AM, PST | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

Bryan Buckley's feature debut, The Bronze, "stars The Big Bang Theory's Melissa Rauch as Hope Greggory, a venal former gymnast who still clings to the 15 minutes of fame conferred by her Olympic bronze medal," explains Vulture's Kyle Buchanan. "Reluctantly, Hope is forced to coach up-and-coming gymnast Maggie (Haley Lu Richardson), who idolizes her, but Hope is so threatened by Maggie's incipient celebrity that she instead tries to sabotage the girl … until a run-in with her old rival, Olympic recruiter Lance Tucker (Sebastian Stan), spurs Hope to finally shape up." Critics have not taken kindly to the Sundance opener. We have reviews and video. » - David Hudson »

Indie 'Bronze' to Marvel's 'Captain America?' It's all the same for Sebastian Stan

26 January 2015 4:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City, Utah -- Sebastian Stan played the titular villain in last year's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," but in new Sundance pic "The Bronze," the film's characters are more preoccupied with their heroes. Just think: having heroes have downsides, too. "The thing about heroes, it's a two sided coin," Stan explained from the "Bronze" red carpet at the Sundance film festival. "One way, it's nice have someone to be inspired by..." And then there's "unrealistic expectations." "['The Bronze'] movie deals with that. It's about expectation and about people who have taken these dreams way too far... once the applause is over and the medals are won," bodies are older and they fade to memories. Heavy. But then again, Stan's work as an actor sounds like it's hard work. He said he goes over his scenes and his goals and the start and stop of each shoot. And no matter the size »

I am at my second Sundance Film Festival. These are my reviews.

Sundance Film Festival 2015 Reviews

The Bronze

Director: Bryan Buckley

Screenwriters: Melissa Rauch, Winston Rauch

Principal Cast: Melissa Rauch, Gary Cole, Thomas Middleditch,

Sebastian Stan, Haley Lu Richardson, Cecily Strong

U.S.A., 2015, 104 min., color

Plot (courtesy of Sundance): In 2004, Hope Ann Greggory became an American hero after winning the bronze medal for the women’s gymnastics team. Today, she’s still living in her small hometown, washed-up and embittered. Stuck in the past, Hope must reassess her life when a promising young gymnast threatens her local celebrity status.

Review: There is one note in The Bronze, and it is played over and over again. In the Rome 2004 Olympics, fictional character Hope (Rauch) overcomes an injury to win a bronze medal. She’s idealized by the media and her small town. Now, years later she’s in denial of being a has been. »
