2 hours ago

Where in the world is the Incredible Hulk?  Despite chatter that Mark Ruffalo.s Hulk would be popping up alongside nearly every other Marvel movie character in Captain America: Civil War, this is not the case. However, that doesn.t mean he wasn.t included originally. The actor recently clarified the matter and revealed that Hulk was a part of Civil War at one point or another, but he was ultimately cut from the film because there.s some other mysterious plan for the giant green rage monster.  Ruffalo spoke with Italy.s Bad Taste while in Venice for the film festival. Super Hero Hype translated the conversation and unearthed this tidbit about the original plan for Hulk post-Avengers: Age of Ultron and what we can expect from him in the future. With regards to why Hulk was cut from Civil War, Ruffalo said,  The reason is too great »

2 hours ago

I don.t want to alarm anyone, but this might be the best mashup video of all time. The opening title card sets the scene: "There is a place or fictional characters meet. Outside of time, outside of all logic. This place is known as Hell.s Club." Watch the mashup below.  Antonio Maria Da Silva of YouTube has created some dynamite mashups in the past, including his "Bruce Lee vs. Bruce Lee," "Terminator vs. RoboCop," and "Fight of the Universe," the latter of which inserts Neo from The Matrix, Batman from Christopher Nolan's films, Spider-Man from Sam Raimi.s films, and the like into one epic movie battle. This time around, Silva has smooshed together some of our favorite movie characters so that they all interact in a mystical dance club called Hell.s Club.  It.s all strategically centered around the futuristic alien bar from Star Wars »

How Avengers 2 Transformed Jarvis Into The Vision

3 hours ago

Before Age of Ultron, Paul Bettany was "annexed" to the recording studio, where he would lend his voice to J.A.R.V.I.S. after principal photography on the current Marvel movie had been completed. With Age of Ultron came a new role for the actor, who transcended his computerized self and became the Vision. A new behind-the-scenes featurette from the Avengers 2 home release shed light on the creation of the beloved character. Watch it below.  As you can see from the footage, a lot of practical effects and motion capture technology went into bringing the Vision to life. The beginning of the video kicks off with director Joss Whedon recounting how the concept for the Vision came to be. Based on his own admission, it seems like the plan for the Avengers sequel was always to feature Bettany.s ascension.  Of course, there was also plenty of CG »

Will Ferrell's 10 Best Co-Stars, Ranked

9 hours ago

In his long history of comedy filmmaking, Will Ferrell has almost always found himself surrounded by cast members equally adept to going for the funny stuff. Maybe it's something left over from his Saturday Night Live days, or maybe he's just that easy to work with, but either way the chances are good that Ferrell and his co-star are going to have at least one gut-busting scene together. With Josh Gad signing on as the Roger Ebert to Ferrell's Russ Meyer in Russ And Roger, the streak looks like it will continue for now, but it leaves us with a big question to be answered: Out of all of the co-stars he's managed to click with in his career, who's the best co-star to have made their bones in a Will Ferrell movie? Brace yourselves, as we're about to evaluate days of Ferrell past and count down the 10 best partners »

The Rock Reveals A Key Detail About Disney's Jungle Cruise Movie

14 hours ago

Many of the attractions at Disney theme parks are designed to transport riders to another time and place. And as rides are now totally acceptable fodder for movie ideas, the subsequent films based on them attempt to do the same thing. The Johnny Depp-fronted Pirates of the Caribbean franchise conveys viewers back to the mid-1700s, and when Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson tackles Disney’s Jungle Cruise, the production will follow suit. Fans will get to smell what The Rock is cooking in the 1920s.     Pumped to kick off the writing for our Disney's Jungle Cruise. Great meeting w/ our writers Requa & Ficarra who last wrote and directed Focus w/ Will Smith and Bad Santa w/ Billy Bob Thornton. Our goal is to push the envelope in a smart, edgy, epically fun way. Johnny Depp raised the bar with Pirates Of The Caribbean.. »

15 hours ago

The cinematic version of R.L. Stine.s beloved Goosebumps novels doesn.t even hit theaters until later this year, but as is often the case in Hollywood, that.s never stopped anyone from looking to the future. And in case you were curious, Goosebumps 2 is already in the works. According to a report from The Tracking Board, Sony is already in the process of developing Goosebumps 2, even though the first family horror-comedy hasn.t hit your local metroplex yet. With the release just over a month-and-a-half away, it seems like maybe they.d want to stay patient and make sure they have a hit on their hands, but this isn.t a huge surprise. The 181 books published since 1992 have sold more than 350 million copies and been translated into 32 languages, so there is definitely a substantial global market to tap into, and they want to be ready.

Concussion Controversy Continues As Sony Argues Against Supposed Cuts To Please The NFL

16 hours ago

Ever since the movie Concussion was announced it was a forgone conclusion that the NFL was not going to be happy. The movie deals directly with the long-term consequences of repetitive head trauma, which is a big part of what happens in National Football League every Sunday. However, this has now gone beyond a simple protest or boycott. In the face of some evidence that Sony made cuts to the film in order to placate the NFL, the studio has had to go on the defensive and claims nothing like that has happened. As with everything else that.s happened with Sony in the last nine months, it all comes back to that massive e-mail hack. According to a story in the Los Angeles Times, a number of those e-mails make references to Sony trying to avoid "kicking the hornet.s nest," referring to the NFL. However, Sony has come »

What Flash May Look Like In The Upcoming DC Movies

17 hours ago

While The Flash TV series races into its second season The CW, the Scarlet Speedster is also slowly (how ironic) moving closer to his big screen debut in the DC movie universe. Other than Ezra Miller being confirmed to play the part, details have been light on what to expect from this version of the character. However, now we may have information on the costume he.ll be wearing in the DC Extended Universe - and it may have a different look than what fans are used to (though take the following information with a grain of salt). According to the Twitter account Dceu Feed, while confirming to a fan that he.ll appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Ezra Miller revealed key details about how he.ll look as the Flash. Specifically, the superhero suit will have a "post-apocalyptic look to it." The actor also reportedly mentioned »

How Idris Elba Almost Died On The Beasts Of No Nation Set

17 hours ago

I’m going to guess that many of you, like myself, think that Idris Elba is basically unbreakable. Just look at him. The man is an Adonis. However, it turns out that there is one person who has the capabilities to kill Idris Elba, and that is Idris Elba himself. The actor just revealed that he was almost the architect of his own death on the set of his new film, Beasts Of No Nation. During a recent expose for Variety on Elba and the film, the actor explained that he almost plunged to a rather gory and horrific death while filming the Cary Fukunaga-directed drama. This incident occurred while Elba was out in a Ghanaian jungle for the low-budget flick, which has been described as a “guerrilla-like shoot.” The piece explains: One afternoon, as the actor waited for the next scene, he leaned against a »

Pennywise Would Have Been Different And Terrifying In Cary Fukunaga's It

17 hours ago

Sadly, we will never get to see a Cary Fukunaga-directed adaptation of Stephen King's It. The filmmaker started working on the big screen project all the way back in 2012, but wound up having too many disagreements with the studio and ultimately left the production behind. As a result, we'll now only ever have the director's descriptions of what his version of the story would have been - and from the sound of things, his version of Pennywise The Clown would have been truly terrifying. It was just last month that Fukunaga opened up about his parting of the ways with It, but it's in a new interview with Variety that the filmmaker has revealed his special approach towards making the central villain scare the souls from viewers. According to the director, New Line wanted "a much more inoffensive, conventional script," and one of the sticking points was the way »

The Real Reason Edgar Wright May Have Left Ant-Man

18 hours ago

There has been a big shakeup at Marvel Studios, the folks behind the mega-popular universe of superhero movies that seem bent on world domination. Parent company Disney restructured things and reportedly did away with the so-called Creative Committee. While it sounds like a good idea in theory, the Committee has reportedly been frustrating to work with, and a new report indicates that their interference is why director Edgar Wright left Ant-Man, at least in part. After the story of the reorganization first broke, Birth.Movies.Death. followed up with their own sources, and in their investigation uncovered a tidbit about the issues the Shaun of the Dead director had with the Committee. The story reads: Over the years I've heard many stories of the Creative Committee giving notes that are pedestrian, motivated by 'save the cat' story logic and sometimes a drag on creativity. One Marvel creative talked to me »

How Marvel Is Making A Huge Behind The Scenes Change

18 hours ago

Marvel Studios may not have another movie coming out until next May, but things are very busy behind the scenes right now. This started when it was officially announced that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige would no longer be reporting to Marvel Entertainment CEO Ike Perlmutter, and instead will be in direct contact with Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn. What's interesting, though, is that this has possibly led to another major shift - specifically the disbandment of the group known as the Creative Committee at Marvel. This very interesting story comes to us from Birth.Movies.Death., which has heard from unnamed sources that the Creative Committee is all but completely done in the movie department at Marvel Studios (they may continue to have roles to play in the television side of things). This group includes a handful of notable names including former toy executive Alan Fine, comic book »

Disney May Finally Adapt Artemis Fowl With A High Profile Director

19 hours ago

Discussions over the adaptation of the Artemis Fowl book series have been going on now for 14 years. During this time the project has repeatedly stalled, with a stream of directors signing up and then dropping out of development. But now it appears as though Walt Disney Pictures has finally found the right director to kick off the franchise, as they’re in discussions with Kenneth Branagh to bring the series to the big screen.  Variety’s sources allege that Branagh has now signed up to develop the property with the studio as its director. But that’s not all, because he is also set to bring the much loved series of books to life with the help of Irish playwright Conor McPherson, who is currently holding talks to pen the first script.  While this would normally suggest that Disney, Branagh, and McPherson are now full-steam »

Cate Blanchett Is Playing Lucille Ball, Get The Details

20 hours ago

Cate Blanchett has proven time and time again to be a chameleon of the highest order, able to disappear into any role she takes on. Just remembering this helps affirm just how awesome it is that the Academy Award-winning actress has now signed on to play Lucille Ball in an upcoming biopic. But wait, it gets better. The Wrap is reporting that the newly-in-development project is being scripted by none other than Aaron Sorkin, whose work we'll see back on the big screen in a couple months when Steve Jobs arrives. No director has been hired yet, but the children of the film's subject, Lucy Arnaz Jr. and Desi Arnaz Jr., are on-board as producers. The film doesn't have a title yet, but it will center on a very important time in Lucille Ball's life: her 20-year marriage to Desi Arnaz. It was during this time that they starred »

Why Steven Spielberg Thinks Superhero Movies Will Go The Way Of The Western

20 hours ago

The entertainment industry is cyclical. Always has been, and always will be. Things that are popular now likely will not be popular a few years from now, just as things that were popular in, say, the .80s and .90s aren.t moving the needle anymore. (Sorry, hair-metal bands and manufacturers of acid-washed jeans.) So when Steven Spielberg predicted the demise of the superhero genre, a few people nodded their heads in agreement, and then Twitter went and acted like Twitter. Let.s back up. Spielberg was speaking with The AP about his upcoming Bridge of Spies with Tom Hanks, and the film industry in general. He was asked about the current, dominant genre of superhero films, and the prolific A-list filmmaker said that they.d eventually go "the way of the Western," meaning that Hollywood used to make a ton of them, and now they are rare. Specifically, Spielberg said: »

Why Stan Lee's X-Men: Apocalypse Cameo Will Be Better Than The Rest

22 hours ago

In addition to being the co-creator of many of Marvel.s most famous heroes and villains, comic book legend Stan Lee has made a name for himself as a cameo master. Lee holds no shortage of enthusiasm for each role he plays, but something.s different about his brief appearance next year in X-Men: Apocalypse. This past July at San Diego Comic-Con, he revealed that this cameo will be unique compared to his previous ones, and now we know why: it involves someone he cares about. During his interview with Larry King (who he was mistaken for in Iron Man 2), Lee let it drop that his X-Men: Apocalypse cameo will have him sharing screen time with someone who means a lot to him. Lee said: That cameo is different than any I have ever done before, because I did it with another person that is very important to me. »

We.re sorry to report that it looks like the couple of Dreamworks and Disney are splitting up after releasing the The Bfg on July 1, 2016. They've been growing apart for some time . Disney's been hanging out with Marvel and Lucasfilm more and more lately . but the ultimate reason for this split is money: ridiculous amounts of money, all thanks to Spielberg.s involvement on Jurassic World, which is setting the tone for Dreamworks. next chapter.

Will Ferrell's New Movie Has Found Its Roger Ebert

2 September 2015 10:08 AM, PDT

The upcoming comedy centering on the partnership between Russ Meyer and Roger Ebert – aptly titled Russ & Roger Go Beyond – has officially cast an actor to portray Ebert: Josh Gad (Frozen, Pixels). According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gad has officially signed on to round out the titular duo, with comedian Will Ferrell already signed on to play Russ Meyer. The film focuses on the early careers of Meyer and Ebert during the 1970’s. At the time, Meyer was a prolific soft-core pornographer with a knack for handling tight budgets, and Ebert was a small time film critic and aspiring screenwriter; together, they fought against the traditional Hollywood studios and ratings bureaus to create Beyond the Valley of the Dolls — one of the first ever X-rated films ever produced by a major studio. The film will chronicle their professional conflicts with Hollywood, as well as the " »

Is Sabretooth Really In Wolverine 3? Here's What Liev Schreiber Just Said

2 September 2015 8:51 AM, PDT

Will he or won.t he? Will Liev Schreiber.s Sabretooth make a reprisal in Hugh Jackman.s last Wolverine movie after debuting in X-Men Origins? A tweet from the actor seemed to suggest that he would be, but now it seems we all were reading too much into it. Schreiber recently hit up The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to clear up the matter.  When the late-night talkshow host first brought up the subject, the actor clarified,  People have surmised that from my tweet, but I wasn.t. I was really just saying is that something I have to do as I get older. Is that how I approach middle age? Like that. In mid-August, Jackman posted a photo on Twitter of himself bulking up at the gym, which seemed to indicate he was preparing for his last stint as Wolverine. Schreiber then responded by tweeting, "do I have »
