Read This Delightful Letter Tom Hiddleston Wrote Joss Whedon About Avengers

50 minutes ago

No matter how talented they might be, actors are still reliant on other people to do their jobs. They need a writer to give them something to work with and a director that understands where they.re trying to take their performance. They need to be put into a position to succeed. Fortunately for Tom Hiddleston, he knew he was in for something special the second he read Joss Whedon.s draft of The Avengers. In fact, he was so amped up about the possibilities that he fired off an epic letter to the writer/ director. The correspondence stayed with Joss Whedon following the movie, but it was published on Business Insider this week for the first time. Not surprisingly, Marvel fans are eating it up, both because it.s a great behind the scenes tidbit and because it makes Tom Hiddleston somehow seem even more charming. You can read »

Thanos Won't Appear In Avengers: Age Of Ultron

1 hour ago

There was a sizzle in the air during that post-credits sequence in The Avengers. Who is this purple guy, and what are his plans for Earth? He's gone unmentioned in the Marvel films since - though comic book fans know him as the Mad Titan Thanos. And while the character will be showing up in Guardians of the Galaxy and finally name-dropped, it looks like it's going to be a while before we know much more about him During San Diego Comic Con, Marvel head Kevin Feige revealed to Comic Book Resources that Josh Brolin's Thanos will not be making an appearance in Avengers: Age Of Ultron. "He's not a part of Avengers 2. I think Thanos kind of does what he wants, shows up where he wants to. And I'm not going to tell him otherwise, so you don't know exactly. Smirking at the end of the first Avengers. »

Judd Apatow's Business Trip Getting A Rewrite From Team America: World Police Writer

2 hours ago

Judd Apatow's been hard at work for a couple of years on Business Trip, a comedy showcase for Leslie Mann set at a corporate retreat. Universal bought the script in 2009 with Apatow attached to produce and Mann to star. But development has dragged on for a couple of years, so recently Apatow has brought in one of the industry's heavy comedy hitters for a re-write. The Wrap reports that Pam Brady has stepped aboard Business Trip to rewrite the comedy. Originally penned by Stacey Harman (The Goldbergs), the plot follows a group of women who embark upon a business trip where... something wacky happens. On company time. It's vague. Does one of them get bitten by a radioactive spider? Does another one get abducted into space, only to join a ragtag group of intergalactic bounty hunters? Does one of them meet a hunky dance instructor in the Catskills in »

Con Air 2 Might Take Place In The Most Ridiculous Location Possible

2 hours ago

Set the bar as high or as low as you want: one of the great American action movies of the nineties is Simon West's Con Air: a bombastically ridiculous slice of Jerry Bruckheimer excess where one man must stand alone against a plane taken over by vicious convicts. Simon West took what was, on paper, another Die Hard variation (Die Hard On A Prison Plane!) and loaded it with brutal R-Rated thrills, outsized characters and a self-mocking sense of humor that set it apart from its peers. For years, fans have speculated about the follow-up. And so has director Simon West, it seems. Now all we need is an executive crazy enough to make Con Air 2. Simon West spoke to ScreenDaily about his new project Salty when the conversation turned to a potential Con Air 2. And West was prepared. Oh, was he prepared. "There are always rumors about »

Harrison Ford Is Back Up On His Feet Following His Star Wars: Episode VII Injury

4 hours ago

It was all the way back in the first half of June when Harrison Ford had a bit of an accident on-board the Millennium Falcon while shooting Star Wars: Episode VII. Thanks to a malfunctioning hydraulic door, the legendary actor broke his foot, and reports said that he would possibly be off his feet for as many as eight weeks. This was very obviously bad news for the cast and crew of the upcoming sci-fi epic - but the good news is that Ford is now on the mend. The folks at the New York Daily News have gotten their hands on a photograph of Harrison Ford in Santa Monica, California walking without either a cast on his leg nor crutches under his arms. While there was a bandage around his ankle, the actor was seen getting into the pilot seat of his personal helicopter and apparently wasn't walking with »

To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Guardians Of The Galaxy Ticket

6 hours ago

While every Marvel Studios film has been released in 3D since Kenneth Branagh.s Thor back in 2011, the reality that it.s probably the weakest area of the company.s track record. None of the movies have ever been filmed in native stereoscope, and even though post-conversion has improved greatly over the last few years, Marvel.s features have never really looked that great with an added dimension. But that.s not stopping them from trying. Enter James Gunn.s Guardians of the Galaxy. The 10th film from Marvel Studios is heading into theaters this weekend, and will be doing so both in 3D and 2D formats. Rather than making you guys gamble on spending an extra $5 for a pair of glasses with your movie ticket, however, we have once again applied our patented "To 3D or Not To 3D" breakdown system to help you determine the best way to »

The Mummy Reboot Is Still Happening And Alex Kurtzman Will Direct

7 hours ago

The Mummy is just the latest title to earn a reboot from Hollywood eager to repackage familiar names to us. The latest version of the legend is set to bow May 22nd, 2016, but has been director-less for awhile. Fortunately, the studio is eager to team with a man who mixes blockbuster experience with a totally fresh eye behind the camera. Yep, Universal's calling to the bullpen, and Alex Kurtzman is coming out. The Wrap reports that screenwriter Alex Kurtzman has been selected to helm the new version of The Mummy for Universal. This is a new vision of the character, distanced completely from the high adventure of the 1999 reboot and its sequels, and more indebted to the horror origins of the character. This new vision would harken back particularly to the movies from the silent and early talkies era that branded the Mummy as one of Universal's classic monsters like »

Into The Woods Images Reveal Prince Chris Pine And Johnny Depp's Big Bad Wolf

9 hours ago

We've been reporting plenty on Into The Woods and the incredible cast that Disney has assembled for the live-action movie musical. Now, after months of having to repost that one mediocre picture of Meryl Streep looking like a retired Bellatrix Lestrange, we finally have an avalanche of new images! People has shared a slew, including the one up top that has the aforementioned Streep towering over a trembling James Corden as The Baker. But Corden, who is the hero of this movie based on the Stephen Sondheim Broadway sensation, gets a better close-up in the pic below. There he's with Emily Blunt, who plays the Baker's Wife. And can I just add that Corden looks downright dashing here? He's come a ways since his time as the bumbling roomie on Doctor Who. Next up comes a bit of romance in the form of Rapunzel, played here by Mackenzie Mauzy. Then »

Listen To Vin Diesel Voice Groot In Five Other Languages

11 hours ago

Be warned, America, this weekend you will fall head over heels for a being of few words, brute strength, and a tender heart. He is Groot. He is on the verge of becoming a global star. And Vin Diesel demands to be a big part of it. Guardians of the Galaxy is Marvel's latest tent pole, so of course it will be opening all over the world, from China to France, Russia to Mexico and Brazil. When foreign movies open in the U.S., American audience preferences dictate the use of subtitles so the dialogue won't get lost in translation. But the norm for much of the rest of the movie-going world is over-dubbing. So when Star-Lord, Rocket Racoon, Gamora and Drax The Destroyer leap into theaters overseas, that means the voices of Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista will be replaced by actors who speak whatever »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Already Breaking Records For 2014

11 hours ago

Guardians of the Galaxy hasn.t even opened in theaters, and already, it.s breaking records. Some at Marvel might have questioned the marketability of superheroes not named Thor and Captain America. This news should make them breathe a little easier. Fandango reports that James Gunn.s Guardians of the Galaxy "is poised to be the biggest August pre-seller in Fandango.s history, far outpacing advance sales for the previous record-holder, Matt Damon.s 2007 The Bourne Ultimatum, and pacing to be this year.s #1 non-sequel pre-seller, beating the previous record-holder, The Lego Movie." Wow, that.s an impressive accomplishment. Those of us tracking the potential for Guardians worried about a few factors that might have counted against it. Chris Pratt, while charming, isn.t a bona-fide leading man yet. The characters include a talking raccoon and a tree hero. No one knows who the Guardians are. Fandango researched those ideas »

The Full Interstellar Trailer Is Flat Out Incredible And Has To Be Watched

11 hours ago

Holy choose-your-favorite-expletive here, Christopher Nolan has done it again. When I heard that he showed up at Comic Con last week and showed off this beautiful trailer, I'd heard some pretty big noise about just how good this trailer was. So the moment I saw the new Interstellar trailer online, I had to find the nearest, darkest space and replicate the perfect atmosphere to watch a trailer about space, love, and redemption for the human race. I suggest you do the same, click the play button above, and come back right after for some thoughts. Thanks to IndieWire for having that trailer up at the speed of light, which is exactly how fast my mind is going after watching that trailer. We previously gamed out that Interstellar was, above all else, about Cooper, a man (Matthew McConaughey) trying to save his family . as well as the rest of the world »

11 hours ago

Jamie Foxx was a comedy legend, he's got an Oscar, and he was Django. So if you're going to pick anyone to play you in a movie, why not Jamie? He's already brought life to such important figures in black history like Ray Charles, Tookie Williams and Electro, and now he might be bulking up to take on the fiercest boxer in history. Jamie Foxx, one-time star of In Living Color, might end up playing Mike Tyson. The Daily Mirror has the scoop, claiming that Mike Tyson has handpicked Foxx to bring his life to the screen. "Me and Jamie Foxx are in discussion, and we gonna do it. Within a year to 18 months, we.re going to do the Mike Tyson story and he.s going to portray me, and now they have this new animation; because you know Jamie.s pretty much my age so he can.t »

Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb Wants You To Explore Its New Trailer

13 hours ago

Ah, so, we're doing this again? Above is the trailer to A Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb, the third part of what feels like a neverending series of children's films pretending to educate your child about history. Ben Stiller is back because Ben Stiller isn't a businessman, he's a business, man. And this time, his security guard Larry is tasked with porting the museum's many magical inhabitants to England, befitting a series that is absolutely huge overseas. It seems like some of the action spills out into the city this time around, so maybe they have a bigger budget. They'd have to, considering the theoretical raises everyone must have received to come back: also returning for this installment is Robin Williams' President Roosevelt, Ricky Gervais' Dr. McPhee and the trio of Dick Van Dyke, Bill Cobb and Mickey Rooney (in his final role). Also returning »

Steve Carell Will Headline Disney's Brooklyn Family Robinson

13 hours ago

Not just a great comedian, but a savvy businessman, Steve Carell has been producing his own vehicles since the 2005 smash hit The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Now, hot on the heels of the debut of his latest project -- the celebrity-studded game show Riot -- Carell has sold a new venture to Disney. This one called Brooklyn Family Robinson. THR reports Steve Carell will produce and star in Brooklyn Family Robinson, a family adventure comedy penned by David Reynolds, writer of the beloved Pixar classic Finding Nemo. The project will reteam Carell with the House of Mouse, which recently wrapped on Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, in which the former Office star appears alongside Bella Thorne, Jennifer Garner, Dylan Minnette, Jennifer Coolidge and Dick Van Dyke. A cast like that suggests that Disney can dig deep to build a fantastic ensemble to stand beside Carell for Brooklyn »

A Guardians Of The Galaxy End-Credits Scene Just Leaked, Revealed Cameos

14 hours ago

C.mon, Internet! This is part of the reason why we can.t have nice things! The big story surrounding the end-credits sequence for James Gunn.s Guardians of the Galaxy is that there is No story. yet. The vaunted end-credits sequence . traditionally a big part of Marvel.s cinematic installments . have been left off of early print screenings of Guardians, meaning that crowds on opening day would be the first to enjoy the clip. Fans even asked Gunn, for sure, if the sequence(s) would be on Thursday evening prints, and he said: "@InfinityWatcher: Will Thursday.s late night showing have the end credits tag?" It will.. James Gunn (@JamesGunn) July 29, 2014 Except guess what? The footage leaked. It screened somewhere. And some joker with a phone (or a camera) recorded at least one of the end-credits sequences.

What Does #DCTrinity Mean, And How Will Wonder Woman Live Up To It?

14 hours ago

Is a hashtag a promise? That's what came to mind over the weekend during San Diego Comic Con, as Zack Snyder introduced his Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot, with an intriguing hashtag: #DCTrinity. This could just be a way to emphasize that Wonder Woman is, indeed, DC's third most well-known character, and that now all three central characters at the heart of Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice have been seen by the public. The trinity is complete . we no longer need to show you any more photos until be debut a trailer in, oh, maybe a year. Or maybe it's something more. If Warner Bros. is serious about establishing their own superhero universe, they'll have to have a lynchpin, and it need not be one character. Batman and Superman are clearly the most visible heroes in DC's cinematic world thus far, but in the comics they hold down the foundations »

Harry Potter Team To Map Out Big Plans For The Franchise's Future

14 hours ago

If you guessed that the Harry Potter buzz would die down in the years following the release of the final movie, you'd be wrong. In fact, J.K. Rowling's beloved book series and the films that followed seem to be experiencing a resurgence of interest these days, likely due at least in part to the attention generated by the expansion of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Orlando and the opening of a similar park at Universal Studios Japan. From the sound of it, Warner Bros. is looking to push forward in expanding and promoting the Potter brand, and that apparently includes getting organized. Variety reports that Warner Bros. Entertainment has put together a "Harry Potter Global Franchise Development team," which will be based out of London and Burbank, with the goal of developing and executing "a high-level strategic vision for the Harry Potter Brand and its »

15 hours ago

Quentin Tarantino.s The Hateful Eight has taken an unusual path to production . even by Tarantino.s outside-the-box standards. For a while, this was going to be his follow-up to the Oscar-winning Django Unchained, keeping the writer-director in spaghetti Western mode. Then, as you might recall, the script leaked. and all hell broke loose. But the project appears to be back on track, and the poster above suggests a 2015 release date is in the cards.

Watch The Statler And Waldorf Cut Of Muppets Most Wanted

15 hours ago

Spartacus, Apocalypse Now, and even Kill Bill all suffered the slings and arrows of editorial misfortune, losing moments their creators thought really tied the project together. Of course, some auteurs go the other way and cut their films in length in order to really put a button on their classics, such as Ridley Scott's Alien clocking in a couple of minutes shorter than the original. In the tradition of those greats, we now have a cut of Muppets Most Wanted, as seen by its most reserved critics: Statler and Waldorf. USA Today was the lucky publication to gain access to the preferred version of one of this year's most underrated comedic gems, and it's a cut that has a lot to talk about. Mainly, the fact that the film is only made up of two scenes, both of which feature the creators to a certain extent. It's daring! It's bold! »
