Star Trek's Chris Pine could be playing Steve Trevor in the Wonder Woman movie

3 hours ago

Star Trek's Chris Pine could soon be taking on another iconic role by joining the DC Comics adaptation Wonder Woman.

Pine is in talks to play Steve Trevor opposite Gal Gadot in the 2017 movie from DC's expanded film universe, according to Variety.

Steve Trevor is a dashing intelligence agent who has long been a love interest for the Amazonian warrior Diana Prince in DC's range of comics.

Pine - who plays Captain James Tiberius Kirk in the Star Trek films - apparently emerged as the favourite to play Trevor after impressing Warner Bros and his potential co-star Gadot in a recent meeting.

Wonder Woman will be introduced on the big screen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, before returning for Justice League and solo movies.

Tracee Ellis Ross: 'There aren't many film roles for black women'

Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross and Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez have spoken about racism in the TV and film industry, saying that black women are under-represented.

The pair joined fellow comedy actresses Amy Schumer, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Ellie Kemper, Girls creator Lena Dunham and SNL's Kate McKinnon on a discussion panel for The Hollywood Reporter's latest issue.

The group were asked what they thought of Chris Rock's essay in which he said that you can go to the movies for months and never see a black woman in a major role.

Rodriguez replied: "I think that also goes for Latinos as well."

Ross added: "There aren't many [roles in film]. That's why I say no to all the offers! (Laughs.)

"Working on a film is one job where you look at a casting breakdown and I'll think, 'That's me!' But she's not supposed to be black… But I go for them anyway. »

Simon Pegg has no doubt that William Shatner could play Captain Kirk again

13 hours ago

Simon Pegg has told Digital Spy that William Shatner could play Captain Kirk in a future Star Trek film.

Man Up actor Pegg is currently co-writing the third movie since the reboot of the franchise and will also reprise his role as Scotty.

William Shatner did not feature in Star Trek or Star Trek Into Darkness, but has been tipped for a role in the third movie.

His original series co-star Leonard Nimoy, who passed away earlier this year, appeared in both.

Pegg also told us that the title of the film - rumoured to be Star Trek Beyond - was still "all to play for".

The writer also dismissed reports that he had been brought on the project to make it "less Star Trek-y".

Man Up is released in cinemas this Friday (May 29). »

Dwayne Johnson expects that Shazam will arrive before 2019

13 hours ago

The film adaptation of DC Comics' Shazam was announced for release in 2019, but star Dwayne Johnson has said that that may no longer be the case.

The Fast & Furious actor is predicting an earlier release for the Warner Bros film.

"No, I don't think it is going to be that far away," he told ComicBook.com. "It's going to be earlier than that. I don't think [as late as] 2019."

Johnson said that he has been preparing for eight years to play the film's villain/anti-hero Black Adam.

It was previously unclear whether he was going to play that character or the titular hero Shazam (sometimes known as Captain Marvel. The non-Marvel Comics Captain Marvel. It's confusing).

Johnson can currently be seen in action/disaster movie San Andreas alongside Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Kylie Minogue and Paul Giamatti. »

Danny Collins review: Al Pacino gets his groove back

16 hours ago

Director: Dan Fogelman; Screenwriter: Dan Fogelman; Starring: Al Pacino, Annette Bening, Jennifer Garner, Nick Offerman, Christopher Plummer, Bobby Cannavale, Melissa Benoist; Running time: 106 mins; Certificate: 15

Al Pacino gets his groove back as ageing rock star Danny Collins in a lively comedy-drama that draws from his own star aura and sends it up, too. At the age of 70, the titular Collins is a zoot-suited cliché, leaning on drugs, booze and a wife who is young enough to be his granddaughter, but he also has the saving grace of self-awareness and an impish sense of humour, which combined with Pacino's natural charm, helps him rise above some rather obvious psychological quandaries.

Writer/director Dan Fogelman (who scripted Crazy Stupid Love. and Last Vegas) claims the film is "kind of based on a true story, a little bit," a teasingly tenuous reference to a bit of fan-mail received by musician Steve Tilston from »

San Andreas review: Can Mother Nature stop The Rock?

19 hours ago

Director: Brad Peyton; Screenwriter: Carlton Cuse; Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Ioan Gruffudd, Paul Giamatti, Kylie Minogue, Hugo Johnstone-Burt, Art Parkinson; Running time: 114 mins; Certificate: 12A

Harnessing the spirit of Irwin Allen's disaster movie classics of the '70s, San Andreas pits Dwayne Johnson against Mother Nature in a blockbuster epic that throws everything and the kitchen sink at the WWE star.

He plays Ray Gaines, an La Fire Department first-responder who's estranged from his wife Emma (Carla Gugino) after a family tragedy leaves him racked with guilt. Emma has moved on with architect Daniel (Ioan Gruffudd), while daughter Blake (Alexandra Daddario) struggles to adjust to life without dad. Running parallel to this is Paul Giamatti as Lawrence Hayes, a seismologist who cracks technology to predict earthquakes and sees the carnage forthcoming.

San Andreas is pretty much exactly what you'd expect based on the film's trailers and »
