The Hulk May Be Joining Thor 3
20 October 2015 10:43 AM, PDT
The God of Thunder might just be getting some help from a fellow Avenger on his next solo adventure. Variety is reporting that Mark Ruffalo is finalizing a deal to star in Thor: Ragnarok alongside Chris Hemsworth. The deal would reunite Thor and the Hulk for a “solo” film in much the same way that Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans) are being reunited for Captain America: Civil War.
Teaming the Hulk with Thor appears to be Marvel’s alternative to creating separate, stand-alone Hulk films. When the studio first revealed it’s plans to the so-called Phase 3 movies, fans were quick to note that there was no “Hulk” film on the list. Marvel’s president addressed the issue this way: ” I wouldn’t say Hulk is absent from the timeline. I would say that Hulk is going to appear in many of those movies – particularly »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer Hits Filled With Hints And Potential Toys
20 October 2015 7:12 AM, PDT
Few movies have ever, or will ever, manage the kind of frenzy Star Wars: The Force Awakens has going for it, and even when the slight hints of the initial teaser trailer, or the script-reading image were released, millions were already blocking off their calendar… for the second time they were going to see it.
We finally have the official trailer, as opposed to the teasers, and where our first look at the film showed off Skywalker, the new trailer gives us a lot more of our two young stars, and Han Solo.
The trailer is also filled with a lot of hints, raises a lot of questions, and gives us quick glimpses of things that will most likely turn into very popular toys. It’s actually a very solid trailer, assuming it isn’t all a trick, and little of the film’s story is what it seems here. »

Moore’s ‘Where To Invade Next’ Finds Distributors
20 October 2015 6:50 AM, PDT
Michael Moore’s latest provocumentary (yes, I made that word up) Where to Invade Next has found a distribution partner. While the film was allegedly courted by numerous studios, it’s a new group that placed the winning bid.
According to Deadline, three former executives have left their respective companies to form a new (still untitled) company. Tom Quinn and Jason Jenego, former co-presidents of Radius-twc, have teamed up with Alamo Drafthouse founder and CEO Tim League to form the new company. Moore’s film is their first purchase and a December theatrical release is currently planned.
Moore has been absent from the cinema scene for the past six years. His last film, Capitalism: A Love Story, produced his lowest box office in 15 years ($14 million in the Us). But even his lowest return was respectable by documentary film standards (18th on the all-time list). Now the question is whether his »

The Circle Adds To Impressive Cast
20 October 2015 6:45 AM, PDT
Filming is underway for the big screen adaptation of Dave Eggers’ novel, The Circle. Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, and John Boyega are among the previously announced cast. Now the Hollywood Reporter is announcing that Ellar Coltrane is joining the film. This will be Coltrane’s first film since last year’s Oscar winning drama Boyhood.
The story revolves around privacy in this digital age with Watson playing a young woman who gets a job with a big technology company. That company, called the Circle, has some very non-traditional ideas about individual privacy and Coltrane is set to play a character out to get off the grid and away from big brother oversight. Hanks is playing a key executive at the company.
