In this new era of women empowerment, it seems like every other day we are hearing about a female protagonist-driven film getting the green light. The current trend definitely has huge box-office smashes like The Hunger Games franchise and the Twilight saga to thank. The latest lady-pic How to be Single may not be as huge as the aforementioned films, but with its recent additional casting of three hilarious comediennes, it may still pack a pretty strong box-office punch if done right. How to be Single is the girl power flick of the moment as, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson and Leslie Mann are all currently in negotiations to star in the upcoming romantic comedy. The three funny femmes will join Alison Brie, who is all but officially locked down for the ensemble comedy. The film is said to be on par with other relationship pics »

18 hours ago

Avoiding spoilers isn't easy in this day and age of inter-connectivity and technology-driven communication. Everywhere you look; your television, your computer, your tablet, your phone, you position yourself in the line of fire for spoilers to your favorite movies and/or TV shows. If it's one thing we want when it comes to our entertainment, especially the highly-anticipated Summer tent-pole movies, it's that element of surprise. Avoiding ruining the big moments can definitely be challenging, but it can be done. Take for example Jeremy Renner and his recently revealed methods for spoiler prevention on the set of his upcoming film Avengers: Age Of Ultron. When asked what the still-very mysterious character The Vision, played by Paul Bettany, may look like in the upcoming Avengers sequel, Renner seemed to be equally as "unknowing" as the rest of us as far as what to expect visually.

Terry Crews Really, Really Wants To Play This Superhero

30 January 2015 11:31 AM, PST

Terry Crews is one of the more comical actors on television at the moment, really coming into his own as funnyman Sergeant Terry Jeffords alongside Andy Samberg, Stephanie Beatriz and Joe Lo Truglio in Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The actor may be well-known for playing the muscle-headed joker, with his roles in films like Bridesmaids and television shows like Arrested Development, but he's clearly unwilling to accept being typecast as "that guy" as proven by his latest comments that he would love to play a superhero -- specifically, Silver Surfer. It was in a recent Reddit Ama where Crews answered fans' questions about his current projects including the above-mentioned Fox comedy and his gig as host of shows like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and World's Funniest Fails, that the former NFL athlete-turned actor talked about playing the Marvel superhero. He not only talked about filling the role of the iconic »

How Marvel's Ant-Man Movie Will Tie Into Agent Carter

30 January 2015 11:27 AM, PST

As another piece in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it makes sense Ant-Man would have a few ties to previous Marvel projects to connect with the adventures of Scott Lang, Hank Pym and Hope Van Dyne. John Slattery will be reprising his role as the older Howard Stark (last seen in Iron Man 2), and it.s been heavily suggested that Hayley Atwell will also appear as spy extraordinaire Peggy Carter. Although the latter has yet to be officially confirmed, Peggy will regardless still play an important role in the Ant-Man lore through Marvel.s upcoming two-issue prequel comic series Marvel.s Ant-Man Prelude. You can check out all the preview pages for issue #1 at Newsarama, but the scene starts off with an older Peggy with a young Hank Pam circa early 1960s.

5 Female Star Wars Characters Who Should Carry The First Standalone Film

30 January 2015 10:46 AM, PST

Ever since Disney announced that it was planning to release standalone "spinoff" Star Wars films in between the releases of the upcoming Sequel Trilogy films beginning this December with Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, speculation has run rampant. While it.s generally believed that signature Star Wars names like Han Solo, Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Boba Fett would be the focus of some of these side projects, the latest rumors seem to point to women stepping into the spotlight. With the names of actresses like Rooney Mara, Felicity Jones and Tatiana Maslany coming up as possible leads for one of the standalone films, we thought it would be as a good a time as any to come up with 5 female Star Wars characters on which the first film could focus. We're using only in-movie characters, since the Expanded Universe was essentially torpedoed by the new Star Wars overlords »

Suicide Squad Will Pull From This Specific Issue

30 January 2015 9:33 AM, PST

Suicide Squad is fast becoming one of the most highly-anticipated movies of 2016, but thus far, with only tidbits of information released at a time (mostly only rumors or cast-related), Warner Bros. has yet to reveal much in terms of plot. But things are starting to become a bit clearer now with David Ayer's revelation that his upcoming Supervillain flick will specifically pull from The New 52 Suicide Squad Vol. 4, #1 "Kicked in the Teeth." The director recently tweeted a photo including some Warn Bros./Bravo 14 pre-production documents and a copy of Suicide Squad's New 52 comic. No need to sugarcoat things or beat around the bush, he accompanied the photograph with a single word, "paperwork." That being said, fans can start getting excited about the prospect of seeing one of the greatest gatherings of onscreen villains to date, coming to life through the brilliant source material of Adam Glass' 2011 DC »

30 January 2015 9:18 AM, PST

As we get closer to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens this December 18, we're still waiting ever so patiently to hear more about the first Star Wars spin-off film from Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards. Details are extremely limited, but a few actresses are said to be in contention for a leading role. As the plot for this and subsequent spin-offs are unknown, however, recent comments from Disney CEO Bob Iger have caused some to speculate that they might not be what Star Wars fans are expecting. During a recent shareholder.s meeting, Iger made the following statement, as quoted by Get Your Geek On: It.s only the beginning of a new era of exceptional Star Wars storytelling; next year we.ll release our first standalone movie based on these characters, followed by Star Wars: Episode VIII in 2017, and we.ll finish this trilogy with Episode »

The First Star Wars Spinoff Movie May Have Found Its Lead, Get The Details

30 January 2015 9:03 AM, PST

Is the first Star Wars spin-off movie about to take a massive leap forward with the casting of its leading actor? It certainly sounds that way. That.s because reports have now emerged that Tatiana Maslany has landed the coveted role. Total Geeks have reported that Tatiana Maslany was one of several up and coming actresses to have originally been linked to the role. However it.s now believed that she has beaten both upcoming Rooney Mara and Felicity Jones, who were her competition, to the part. In fact a source for Total Geeks informed the publication immediately after this trifecta had auditioned that Tatiana Maslany had become the front-runner for the role. It.s also believed that Maslany had impressed both Disney and Lucasfilm very early on in with her passion to join the film. It.s still not been verified, but the studios are believed to have now »

5 Big Reasons The All-Female Ghostbusters Is A Great Idea

30 January 2015 9:00 AM, PST

Growing up, I was probably just as big a Ghostbusters fan as you. Its off-beat brand of humor and scares is one of the inspirations for my second book, A Boy and His Corpse. The movie was highly influential for me. So when I heard the news that there would be an all-female cast for the remake (reboot?) of the Ghostbusters franchise, I, like pretty much the entire Internet, went crazy. How could they replace Peter, Ray, Winston, and Egon with one part Bridesmaids, and the other half SNL? Madness, sheer madness! But once I got over my little hissy fit and actually thought about it, I realized something. This wasn.t a bad idea. In fact, it might be a pretty good idea. And not just for one reason, but five. So here are five glaringly obvious (once you think about it) reasons why an all-female cast for a »

MTV Movie Awards: Amy Schumer And Anna Kendrick Take Cups To A Filthy New Level

30 January 2015 7:55 AM, PST

Amy Schumer is hosting this year.s MTV Movie Awards, and we can.t wait for her epic night of debauchery. She.s made a career out of her over-the-top inappropriate but hysterical sense of humor, and now she gets to do that during one of the more off-the-cuff award shows of the year. To preview all the shenanigans that are coming our way, the network has released a brief promotional video featuring Schumer and an uncomfortable interaction with Anna Kendrick. Kendrick is probably sick and tired of hearing people talk about "Cups," the song she covered with her Pitch Perfect co-stars. After breaking into the top 10 spots on Billboard.s Hot 100, everyone has listened to it on repeat and re-watched the adjoining music video countless times. But the 29-year-old has to endure it a little bit more, as Schumer steps in for a filthier rendition of the game. After »
