Wonder Woman Is Probably Adding Chris Pine For A Major Role

51 minutes ago

Warner Bros. and DC.s upcoming Wonder Woman has been the source of much discussion, and though we know Gal Godot will play the titular Amazon warrior, and that she.ll show up in some capacity in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there isn.t a whole lot else to tell. Though it looks like the production may have found its male lead in the form of Chris Pine. Variety reports that Pine is in talks to join what will be the first female-fronted superhero movie to enter the current fray. Though Warner Bros. declined to comment on the matter, according to the trade.s sources, the Star Trek actor will play Steve Trevor, who, in the comics, Wonder Woman.s love interest throughout her origin story. During World War II, Trevor, an intelligence officer in the U.S. Navy, crashes his plane on the remote, isolated Paradise Island. »

Watch An Alternate Hydra Scene From Captain America: The Winter Soldier

1 hour ago

Marvel moviegoers may remember the key scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier in which Cap and Black Widow stumble upon the phalanx of ancient computer hardware that made up the preserved "brain" of the villainous Arnim Zola. However, in some newly-surfaced storyboard animatics chronicling an alternate take, things go down quite differently than the scene we saw. Animation artist James Rothwell, who as of late has been posting a number of alternate scene recreations from The Winter Soldier, also recently introduced this intriguing take on the computerized Arnim Zola, played by Toby Jones in his Hydra exposition scene. Cobbling the scene together based on storyboards, Rothwell depicts a sequence that not only renders Cap more wistfully fixated on his past, but a version of the digitized Zola whose existential motivations are radically different. In a notable divergence, we see Zola actually taking time to negotiate with Cap to ensure »

Crossbones Bringing A Lot More Mayhem To The Marvel Cinematic Universe

2 hours ago

It appears I owe Frank Grillo an apology. Just the other day, we ran a post on CinemaBlend stating that the actor.s menacing villain, Crossbones, probably had a bite-sized role in Joe and Anthony Russo.s Captain America: Civil War -- mainly because he posted a note on Instagram stating that he had wrapped filming. Well, in response (or just to clarify), Grillo took to social media once again to say that Cap should continue looking over his metaphorical shoulder.   To answer all those who think #Crossbones is done ....... Don't get caught w your guard down. #MayhemNeverDone #x . frank grillo (@FrankGrillo) May 27, 2015 If you.ll note, though, that Tweet is sent from Los Angeles, and not from Atlanta, where Civil War currently is being filmed. This could mean one of several things. Civil War may plan to shoot additional scenes in California (or anywhere else in the world), and »

Doctor Strange Looking To Add Tilda Swinton In A Gender Swapping Role

3 hours ago

Most of the focus in the Marvel-verse is currently on the expansive cast of Captain America: Civil War, but we can’t forget that Doctor Strange is coming down the pipe next year as well. Set to film this fall, Tilda Swinton is joining the cast as an important character, though there movie is making one drastic change that is sure to spark a lot of conversation and controversy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Swinton is in talks to play the Ancient One, a Tibetan mystic (who better for a role like that than the Snowpiercer and Only Lovers Left Alive star?), who serves as a mentor and advisor to the title character, to be played by Benedict Cumberbatch. However, in the comics, the character is a man, while, with Swinton taking the role, it will obviously be a woman. In Doctor Strange​, Cumberbatch plays Stephen Strange, a »

Movie Studios Sued For Reusing Lesser Known Parts Of Famous Soundtracks

3 hours ago

Music can be as important to a movie or television show as a character, or a piece of dialogue. Films like Jaws, for example, sold the menace of the lurking great white shark with the ominous repetition of John Williams. iconic score. But just because a snippet of music worked once doesn.t mean that studios have the right to use it over and over again . as a new lawsuit points out. According to THR, the major Hollywood studios . from Sony and Paramount Pictures to Universal and Walt Disney Pictures . are being sued by The American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada for "violating the terms of a collective bargaining agreement by going beyond the allowance for the re-use of previously recorded film soundtracks." In other words, studios are recycling musical cues way more often than they should. I.m sure that you have run into this »

Harry Potter Spinoff Casting Update May Offer Huge Clue About A Lead Character

3 hours ago

At present, there isn't a lot of information pertaining to the characters and story of the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, largely owing to the fact that the book on which the feature is set to be based is a reference guide. However, the latest casting update does offer a potentially sizable clue about the eventual nature of the relationship between lead character Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and one of the other leads. It's odd to have to say spoiler alert here, given how little we know about Newt Scamander from the single-page bio that's included in Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, but because this information did come from the book and references something from his future, it feels only fair to say, potential book spoilers ahead! Is Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them in the process of trying to cast Newt »

3 hours ago

Coming back to the Star Wars mythology for the seventh time, you’d think that iconic composer John Williams might be showing even the slightest signs of Jedi ennui. However, the 83 year-old maestro is still going strong, scoring the anxiously-awaited Star Wars: Episode: The Force Awakens. In fact, he plans a nuanced approach utilizing associated memories in an evocative way. In an interview with Vanity Fair, the legend dishes some details regarding his approach to his current work on The Force Awakens score.

However, Williams plans to emphasize the impact of some scenes with familiar musical numbers for a new effect that mines our memories.

M. Night Shyamalan Explains Why We Didn't Get His Last Airbender Movie

5 hours ago

At this point, the idea that M. Night Shyamalan.s The Last Airbender was a big-budget, box-office disaster is well established in the ignominious annals of cinematic stinkers. While the film was widely panned by the critic community for a number of reasons, it seems that the director is offering up a different explanation: It was made for 9-year-olds, and adults didn't get that. Recently speaking to IGN about his latest role as a producer on the Fox television series Wayward Pines, Shyamalan sportingly indulged a topic shift to one of his most notorious failures in 2010.s The Last Airbender and even offers up a theory as to why audiences just weren.t receptive to the adaptation of the Nickelodeon animated series. According to Shyamalan: My child was nine-years-old. So you could make it one of two ways. You could make it for that same audience, which is what I »

Fast & Furious 8 Is Promising a Location Change

6 hours ago

Vin Diesel isn't subtle. One time, when he wanted to tease fans with the title art of his planned Hannibal biopic, he did it from the inside of a private helicopter. This is how Vin Diesel rolls. Today, he's continuing to sell Fast & Furious 8, basically confirming on Instagram a nugget he dropped earlier: the gang is heading to Manhattan in 2017. #TorettoTuesday A photo posted by Vin Diesel (@vindiesel) on May 26, 2015 at 12:26pm Pdt As part of #TorettoTuesday, Vin Diesel posted the above graphic on his Instagram page. There.s no message to the fans beyond, "Here.s a shot of New York City. We.re coming." The photo actually lacks some of NYC's major, distinguishable landmarks. We don.t see the Chrysler Building, or the Empire State Building on this skyline. But that.s undoubtedly the Brooklyn Bridge in the foreground, so the photo confirms what »

Marvel's Doctor Strange Movie Teases A Major Connection To Thanos

6 hours ago

Scott Derrickson loves his job. The filmmaker has been reading a ton of Doctor Strange comic books and posting his favorite panels to social media in anticipation of his Marvel movie with Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme. Though most of it has been all fun and games, his recent tweet revealed that we'll be meeting the personification of Death in this Phase Three installment. And who do we know who has dealings with Death in the comic books? The Mad Titan himself and the bane of the Avengers' existence, Thanos.  First things first. Derrickson posted an image from Doctor Strange Meets...Death!, an issue from 1974. Accompanied by the image, the director wrote: As will we all... pic.twitter.com/ctLeV5XUNx . Scott Derrickson (@scottderrickson) May 13, 2015 While this could arguably be Derrickson having some fun at our expense, it seems as though he revealed that Death will be making an »

Jake Gyllenhaal's Performance In Southpaw Is Already Getting Oscar Buzz

7 hours ago

The Oscars may have snubbed Jake Gylenhaal earlier this year for his performance in Nightcrawler -- even though he completely transformed himself physically for the role that was widely praised by critics -- but could this year be his year? The actor beefed up beyond recognition for his boxing movie, Southpaw, and early buzz pegs this human drama as a potential Oscar contender for 2016.  As reported by Variety, Southpaw received an early, private screening during the Cannes Film Festival. Taking place aboard a private yacht, the event was attended by celebrities and models like Michelle Rodriguez, Antonio Banderas, Mary J. Blige, Charli Xcx, Adrien Brody, Dita Von Teese and Adriana Lima. The film was selected for Cannes, but since Gyllenhaal was a member of the jury, it couldn't play in competition.  That said, The Weinstein Co., director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) and Cannes delegate Thierry Fremaux all believe this to »

8 hours ago

The filmmaker is wrapped up in production on the DC supervillain teamup for Warner Bros. on location in Toronto, and practically everything he has shot outside in view of bystanders has been leaked online through photos and video.

Now we find out what happens when he catches up with them. YouTube user Vinicius Castro posted video he took from the set where a stuntman dressed up as the Caped Crusader is positioned atop Joker's purple car as the villain and his »

While Suicide Squad and Captain America: Civil War are busy filming, so too is Independence Day 2, the follow-up to Roland Emmerich.s alien invasion pic. Jeff Goldblum returns for the blockbuster, along with some of his fellow ID2 co-stars, and he looks pretty happy to be back by the look of the latest set selfie.

Everything Wrong With The Bourne Identity In One Video

17 hours ago

With the James Bond series in another period of decline, The Bourne Identity introduced the world to a newer, more lethal brand of spy thriller in 2002. However, even the best spies tend to make mistakes, and leave it to Jeremy at Cinema Sins to pick apart how Jason tends to act like he was Bourne yesterday.  Released via the official YouTube channel of Cinema Sins itself, this look at The Bourne Identity does manage to shed some light on problems that one wouldn't tend to notice if they were too busy getting caught up in all of the slick action that Doug Liman included in his only entry in the Bourne series. Interestingly enough, for an assassin who's as skilled and dangerous as Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) is built up to be throughout the film's world building process, he makes some key tactical errors that do make his job a »

Here's How Sony Responded To The Aloha Controversy

18 hours ago

The words Cameron Crowe and controversy normally would go together as well as peanut butter and fish paste. Yet in the past couple of days we've seen not one, but two instances where the filmmaker's latest foray into film, Aloha, has come come under fire. Allegations of white washing and cultural misappropriation have mired the otherwise innocuous looking film, and Sony . the studio backing the picture . has finally come out to address these heavy charges. Entertainment Weekly broke the news only a short while ago that the studio had made a statement that simultaneously addressed both fronts of Aloha's PR war with those who protest its existence. The statement reads as follows: While some have been quick to judge a movie they haven.t seen and a script they haven.t read, the film Aloha respectfully showcases the spirit and culture of the Hawaiian people.

Is The Fantastic Four Reboot Changing The Thing's Eye Color?

19 hours ago

It hasn.t taken much to send diehard Fantastic Four fans into a hissy fit over Josh Trank.s impending reboot. Even though all seemed to be going relatively well over the last few months ahead of its release in August, fans have now found something new to get furious over in the color of The Thing.s eyes. I do believe that at this point children of the internet all across the world usually drop a Wtf.  But do Fantastic Four fans have a point? Well, let.s check out the evidence out for ourselves. One eagle-eyed Reddit user is the reason for this entire kerfuffle. Yuloforce originally noticed that Josh Trank and the powers that be over at Fantastic Four altered The Thing.s retinas. But rather than keeping that information to himself and immediately moving on with his life, yuloforce decided to share the outcry with others »

League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen Is Headed Back To The Big Screen

19 hours ago

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is not a great movie. It does have fans, but there aren.t many arguing the other side of that statement. But it is based on an popular, acclaimed collection of comics, and as such, the property is getting another chance at the silver screen glory it missed out on last time. According to The Tracking Board, 20th Century Fox is giving the literary-themed graphic novel by maverick comic legend Alan Moore and Kevin O.Neill another crack. When the first film was released in 2003, it did so with high expectations and an all-star cast that features Sean Connery in his last on-screen, live-action role. And it did not even come close to meeting those, as it only grossed $66 million domestically ($179 million worldwide), and was roundly panned by critics. The box office wasn.t too surprising. As popular and well regarded as the title is »

The Armageddon Honest Trailer Is One Big Middle Finger To Michael Bay

19 hours ago

Ah, Summer 1998 . a box office stuffed with would be hits and surprising misses all making their own deep impact on the consciousness of moviegoers. Among them was the second biggest film of the year, directed by a man we've all come to associate with summer blockbusters dumb as a box of rocks. That film was Armageddon, and it's the subject of this week's installment of Honest Trailers! Screen Junkies threw it back to the past like it was Thursday, as their latest video took the almost 20 year old blockbuster down a couple of well deserved pegs. Sure, we were just as excited as anyone else was when Armageddon dominated the summer heat relief options of the year that brought us another asteroid picture whose name escapes us at the moment. But as Honest Trailers was eager to point out, Michael Bay's supposed masterpiece is similar to that of a »

What The Rock Listens To When He Needs To Cry On Camera

20 hours ago

Hollywood professionals can take inspiration from a variety of sources, be they cartoons, consumer products, or even real life figures, there's always something to keep the creative wheels turning. Actors especially need inspiration, as it can help them turn a good performance into a great one. Just ask Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who recently admitted there are two things he likes to use when it comes to developing character, one of which is key to any good actor's toolbox: the music that makes him cry. In a recent New York Times interview, Johnson admitted that when he needs to work up a good cry in a somber scene, there's one piece of music that really brings out the water wroks, Whitney Houston's "Didn't We Almost Have It All?"  Music apparenlty breaks down the savage beast within Johnson, and when »

The Full Point Break Trailer Is Full Of Adrenaline And Extreme Action

21 hours ago

Earlier we got a taste of the adrenaline-fueled action from the upcoming Point Break remake, but that wasn’t enough. Oh no, that was just a tease, and now they’re back with a full trailer that wants to push you right up to the edge and beyond. Dare I say this looks like a dumbed-down version of Point Break? Maybe that’s the wrong phrase, as the first one isn’t actually an intellectual opus (it is one of my all-time favorite movies, however). Overly serious is a much better description. The Keanu Reeves/Patrick Swayze-starring original from 1991 is fun and campy and riding a wave right out of the late ‘80s. You got the feeling that everyone involved knew they were making a ridiculous movie On the other hand, from what we see here, Point Break 2015 plays everything super straight. There' »
