James Gunn says Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 won’t feature any resurrections

1 October 2017 11:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning. Spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 follow…

Over the years, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has developed a bit of a reputation for fake deaths, with the likes of Agent Coulson, Bucky Barnes, Pepper Potts, Loki and Nick Fury all thought to died at one point or another, before making their triumphant and (mostly) unscathed returns.

As a result, death has become pretty meaningless in the McU – although it seems the trend will stop with Yondu, as Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has confirmed that he’s not a fan of resurrecting characters, and that he has no plans to cheapen Yondu’s sacrifice at the climax of Guardians Vol. 2.

“What bothers me is when a character is given a beautiful or powerful death in popular culture, that fulfills a character arc… and then is brought back in a sequel or comic or later episode through some usually ridiculous means because, »

James Gunn confirms that Glenn Close was cut from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

22 September 2017 1:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite being initially announced as reprising her role as Nova Prime for the sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy’s Glenn Close was absent from this year’s Vol. 2.

However filmmaker James Gunn has revealed during a fan Q&A that Close was originally set return as the head of the Nova Corps, and that “she had a cameo we didn’t use.”

Close’s Nova Prime is the second cameo to have been cut from the film after Nathan Fillion’s Simon Williams; sadly, neither of these appeared on the Blu-ray bonus features.

It is possible we’ll see the return of Glenn Close’s Nova Prime in Avengers: Infinity War, given that the Nova Corps are currently in possession of the Power Stone, which Thanos is going to need to complete his Infinity Gauntlet.

Peter Rabbit Trailer Unleashes One Wild Bunny

21 September 2017 1:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Peter Rabbit has been a staple for children for more than 100 years. Now, Sony Pictures Animation is going to bring the beloved troublemaker into the modern age for a new generation, and The Late Show host James Corden is stepping out from behind his desk to help make it happen. The first trailer for the new Peter Rabbit movie has arrived, introducing us to James Corden's wild rabbit who is up to no good and having a great time doing it.

The first trailer for Peter Rabbit debuted on Yahoo! and gives us a great introduction to this new take on the classic character. Peter is still doing his best to make Mr. McGregor's life difficult, but this definitely feels like a more modern spin that younger viewers can get into that doesn't lose what the character has always been. It certainly looks to be a kids movie, no doubt, »

James Corden Voices Peter Rabbit in First 'Peter Rabbit' Movie Trailer

21 September 2017 1:03 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"This is only the beginning." Sony has finally debuted the first official trailer for Will Gluck's Peter Rabbit movie, a hybrid CGI family comedy about the lovable rabbit rascal who messes with Mr. McGregor. Peter Rabbit is voiced by James Corden, and the triplets Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail, are voiced by Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley. The human cast includes Domhnall Gleeson as Mr. McGregor, plus Rose Byrne. This teaser trailer doesn't show much besides a bunch of animals partying inside of Mr. McGregor's house, which is kind of odd, but hopefully there's a good story to this rather than wacky humor left and right. Also, is it just me, or does Corden's voice not really fit Peter Rabbit? Have fun. Here's the first official trailer (+ teaser poster) for Will Gluck's Peter Rabbit, direct from YouTube: Peter Rabbit, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, »

‘Peter Rabbit’ Trailer: Beatrix Potter’s Beloved Kids’ Book Bunny Gets a Naughty New Origin Story — Watch

21 September 2017 9:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Here’s what you know about Peter Rabbit, even if you don’t think you know anything about the beloved Beatrix Potter creation: he’s bad, but because he’s a cute little bunny, he’s also good. The star of Potter’s many tales about a darling family of anthropomorphic garden dwellers is now the recipient of his very own hybrid origin story, one that features no less than James Corden voicing the fluffy bunny. And no, he’s still not wearing any pants.

In “Peter Rabbit,” Sony Pictures Animation’s “irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude” about the little dude, Peter’s long-standing feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson, who seems to be hellbent on dominating the space of “beloved kid lit classics, reinvented for the big screen” these days) takes on a new dimension when the pair battle over a charming new neighbor (Rose Byrne), who apparently also adores animals. »

by Murtada

click to embiggenHere’s our first look at Elizabeth Debicki as Virginia Woolf in Vita & Virginia, currently shooting in Ireland. The film will tell the story of the love affair between the noted author and socialite Vita Sackville-West (played by Gemma Arterton). Set in 1920s London, Vita & Virginia is the sophomore feature of director Chanya Button, following 2015 comedy drama Burn Burn Burn.

The clincher here though is the involvement of Dame Eileen Atkins, a Woolf scholar and the definitive authority on the famous writer »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Breath’

15 September 2017 5:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Having directed several episodes of his own long-running TV vehicle “The Mentalist,” Aussie actor Simon Baker makes a confident transition behind the camera to feature filmmaking with “Breath,” the tale of two teens’ introduction to surfing under an older man’s tutelage. Baker also plays the adult lead, and co-wrote the screenplay adapted from celebrated Oz scribe Tim Winton’s 2008 novel (his 20th). Though not without its flaws, the movie has authenticity and resonance; there have been plenty of good surfing documentaries, but very few good dramas about the sport — a short list on which “Breath” instantly earns a prominent spot.

Winton himself provides lyrical voiceover narration in this flashback account of our main protagonist’s early teens in a small town near the western Australian coast (its time period rendered somewhat vaguer than the mid-’70s of the book). Bruce, aka “Pikelet” (Samson Coulter), is a 13-year-old from a stable home who dutifully attends school. That »

James Gunn suggests Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will arrive in 2020

8 September 2017 11:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re a little over a year and a half away from the culmination of Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the release of the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4, and as yet, we’ve got very little in the way of an idea as to what comes next for the McU.

We do know that things will get underway in July 2019 with a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, and there’ll be an increased emphasis on the cosmic side of the universe, spearheaded by James Gunn and the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. (which will reportedly set the stage for the next 10 to 20 years of the McU, according to Gunn)

As yet, there’s been no official word as to when we can expect the next Guardians movie, but posting on his Facebook page, Gunn has told a fan that Vol. 3 will be out “in a little under three »

Otd: The Whisperers, Marlee Matlin, and "The Power of Love"

24 August 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On this day (August 24th) in showbiz-related history...

1890 "Father of modern surfing" and part time movie actor Duke Kahanamoku born in Hawaii. We've written about him before. Where's his biopic?

1967 The Whisperers premieres in London. It's about an old poor woman living in solitude who is beginning to lose her grip on reality. Dame Edith Evans sterling work was instantly lauded - she won Best Actress at Berlinale and from such disparate groups as the Nyfcc, Nbr and the Golden Globes. She landed her third and final Oscar nomination in the Best Actress lineup (sadly only the winner, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner's Hepburn, was less than superb in that shortlist!). At the time Evans was the oldest Oscar nominee of all time in any acting category having just turned 80 years old. That record has since been undone but she's still the third oldest lead actress nominee after Jessica Tandy »
