Black Panther: Ava DuVernay Passes on Directing the Marvel Film

6 hours ago

With Marvel Studios’ 2018 film Black Panther, it looked like we might possibly get Marvel’s first female director and first person-of-color director in one go with Selma helmer Ava DuVernay. A report surfaced in May that DuVernay was being courted to direct either Black Panther or Captain Marvel, the studio’s first female-led superhero pic. DuVernay didn’t shoot the report down and even seemed to address the rumors on Twitter from time-to-time, but now comes firm word that the pairing of DuVernay and Marvel won’t be happening after all. Speaking with Essence, the filmmaker revealed that she has opted to pass on directing Black Panther over (surprise!) a difference of vision with Marvel: “I'm not signing on to direct Black Panther. I think I’ll just say we had different ideas about what the story would be. Marvel has a certain way of doing things and I think »

High-Res Presentation Reel Reveals the John Carter that Could Have Been

8 hours ago

Once upon a time Kerry Conran (Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow) was slated to direct an adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough's beloved science fiction series John Carter of Mars for Paramount. Of course, that didn't pan out, and what we ended up with was Disney's John Carter, the Taylor Kitsch-led box office disaster that generated a bizarre amount of hate for what I understand was just a kind of okay movie. For those who wanted to see what Conran's version might have looked like, today's your luck day. Harry Knowles, who was set to produce the axed adaptation, has released a high-res version of the presentation reel, featuring tons of gorgeous artwork and some solid fight choreography. A low-res version of this video has been floating around the internet for a while, but this version is crisp and offers a solid idea of what Conran had in mind for his film's aesthetic. »

Batman V Superman Scenes Include a Rainy Rooftop Battle and Solemn Chats with Alfred

9 hours ago

Now that we've seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice take center stage on the cover of Entertainment Weekly's Comic-Con issue and had a chance to pore over the new images, we've also got descriptions for three scenes in Zach Snyder's epic superhero showdown starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Godot, Jesse Eisenberg and Jeremy Irons. As reported in EW [via comicbook] Bruce Wayne and Alfred share an "almost comically grim" scene in the "derelict husk" of Wayne manor, littered with "strewn leaves across the floor," as Bruce prepares to go to battle with Superman. Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and his loyal butler, Alfred (Jeremy Irons), are gravely intoning their lines into a burned-out fireplace, as Bruce prepares for his Valley of Elah moment with Superman. The billionaire vigilante appears weary but determined, not unlike the actor portraying him. And this will not be the only counsel Bruce receives from Alfred - nor should it, »

Skydance CEO & COO David Ellison and Dana Goldberg and Director Alan Taylor Talk Terminator Genisys

10 hours ago

While in Berlin for the world premiere of Terminator Genisys I landed an exclusive video interview with director Alan Taylor and Skydance CEO and COO David Ellison and Dana Goldberg (Skydance produced the movie with Paramount). During the interview they talked about how the script changed during production, Easter eggs, what they learned from friends and family screenings, setting up future movies, deleted scenes, and more. As I have said a few times, I really enjoyed Terminator Genisys. It’s easily the 3rd best in the franchise behind Terminator  and Terminator 2: Judgement Day, and feels more in the James Cameron universe than any of the other sequels. I also really enjoyed seeing Schwarzenegger play his most iconic role again. Hopefully audiences turn out for this because everyone involved wants to make a trilogy of new Terminator movies, and I want to see what the next two installments have in store. »

Disney’s 9 Most Wicked Animated Villains

10 hours ago

Disney Animation excels at a lot of things - fantastic world building, top-tier artwork, and some of the catchiest songs in the world - but the studio's crowning achievement may just be the exceptional catalogue of villains built up over the last six decades. It's commonly said that a story is only as strong as it's antagonist, so it's no surprise that the foremost leader in children's storytelling has a pantheon of iconic villainy. Before we go forward, a few things to keep in mind about the list below: We're sticking to Disney Animated Classics, so that means no live-action and no Pixar (sorry, Lotso). This list is not ranked, but compiled in chronological order. Finally, this is in no way a comprehensive, definitive, or ultimate list. Disney animation has churned out more than 50 films in as many years, and a stunning amount of them are downright excellent, so these »

New Ant-man Trailer Disses the Iron Man Armor

10 hours ago

Marvel has released a new Ant-Man trailer a couple weeks before the film finally debuts. In addition to directly explaining the plot, in particular the motives of Hank Pym’s (Michael Douglas) former protégé Darren Cross aka Yellowjacket (Corey Stoll), we get another Avengers name-drop along with Pym dismissing the Iron Man armor as “cute technology”. It looks like the film is very conscious of why there aren’t any Avengers around, and part of that has to do with Hank Pym’s disdain for them. A team of superheroes might get the job done, but Pym would rather give a thief a superpowered suit. It helps facilitate the McU, but also tells us about where Pym's character and beliefs, which is nice. Check out the new Ant-Man trailer below. The film also stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Pena, Judy Greer, Tip “T.I.” Harris and Bobby Cannavale. Here’s »

Matt Bomer on Magic Mike Xxl, the White Collar Ending, Shane Black, and More

11 hours ago

Now playing in theaters is Magic Mike Xxl. Gregory Jacobs takes over as director this time around, though Steven Soderbergh is still onboard as cinematographer, camera operator, and editor. Written by Reid Carolin, the story takes place three years after the events of Magic Mike, as Channing Tatum’s character has bowed out of the stripper game for good…or so he thinks. The rest of the Kings of Tampa decide to throw in the towel as well, but not before one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach with Mike sharing the spotlight. As the boys embark on a rowdy road trip, they renew old acquaintances and make new friends. As you can see in these fifty images, Jada Pinkett Smith plays a club owner, while Amber Heard, Donald Glover, Elizabeth Banks, and Andie MacDowell fill other supporting roles. The film also stars Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, »

Self/Less: Four Clips & Behind-the-Scenes Footage Reveal the Side Effects of Death

11 hours ago

Focus Features has released four new clips and five minutes of behind-the-scenes footage for Tarsem Singh‘s latest mind-bender, Self/less, a psychological sci-fi thriller about a dying man (Ben Kingsley) who decides to transfer his consciousness into the body of a healthy, younger man (Ryan Reynolds). The procedure works, but he soon comes to realize that “immortality has some side effects.” While most of the clips are noticeably lacking in Tarsem's distinct visual opulence, one of them finally reveals a glimpse at that aesthetic panache Tarsem is known for - but seriously, just a glimpse. The glinting gold pillow atop a sterile medical bed both feels like signature Tarsem and fits with the idea that the immortality procedure and "best of the human experience" is exclusively available to those in the highest echelons of society. These clips are also a great reminder that Reynolds is an excellent actor when »

New Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Images Prepare for Proper Slaying

11 hours ago

Screen Gems has released some new Pride and Prejudice and Zombies images. Directed by Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) and based on the parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, the story follows Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her sisters Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) as they try to navigate societal pressures of the landed gentry and fend off hoards of zombies. Speaking to EW, Steers explained how he was approaching the film more as a spin on Jane Austen than a B-movie. “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight,” says Steers. “The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink.” [caption id="attachment_481321" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Screen Gems[/caption] That’s a difficult line to walk. You don’t want to be stodgy with a ridiculous premise, but at the same time, »

Zachary Levi Talks Heroes Reborn, the Tangled TV Series, The Nerd Machine, Comic-Con & More

12 hours ago

Zachary Levi is undoubtedly one of the busiest actor/producers in Hollywood right now. He’s hosting the pop trivia game show Geeks who Drink for Syfy, premiering on July 16th, he’s a part of the Heroes Reborn mini-series for NBC, debuting on September 24th, he’ll be doing a guest arc on Eva Longoria’s new comedy Hot and Bothered, and he’ll be returning to voice Flynn for the Tangled TV series on the Disney Channel in 2017. If all of that isn’t enough, he’s bringing NerdHQ back to San Diego, with a really cool assortment of celebrity panels and fun activities that will be held at the New Children’s Museum during Comic-Con, from July 9 - 12. And if you can’t make the trek to be there in person, never fear, as you can stream all of the “Conversations for a Cause” at IGN.com and TheNerdMachine. »

Deadpool: The Merc with a Mouth and Negasonic Teenage Warhead Catch a Cab

12 hours ago

Following yesterday’s new Deadpool image, another one has found its way online. This latest image features Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and his cohort Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand). We first got a look at Ntw a couple months ago when Reynolds shared an image on Twitter, but we still don’t know much about how she’ll factor into the movie. In the comics, she’s a mutant (remember, 20th Century Fox gets to use that word because they own X-Men) who has telepathic powers. As for her unusual alias, it comes from the Monster Magnet song of the same name. We don’t know how Ms. Warhead will factor into the plot or if she’ll even employ telepathy, but with her apparently dour demeanor, she could at least be a good foil for the bubbly, loquacious Deadpool. Perhaps we’ll get a better idea of their relationship when »

Comic-Con 2015: 10 Must-See Panels

12 hours ago

For one weekend every year, film, TV, and comic book studios descend upon San Diego to present and preview some of their biggest and/or most exciting upcoming projects. Comic-Con is where Marvel first announced the title Avengers: Age of Ultron, it’s where Zack Snyder took the stage to reveal that the Man of Steel follow-up would be a “Batman vs. Superman” movie, and it’s where Tom Hiddleston entered Hall H in character as Loki and bent thousands of people to his will. But Comic-Con is host to more than just panels previewing blockbusters. Last year David Fincher took part in a small panel looking back on Fight Club, and this year Joss Whedon gets the Hall H stage all to himself to do…something. With the Collider staff set to embark on our trip to San Diego next week where we’ll be bringing you recaps, interviews, »

Hannibal Season 3 Recap: “Contorno”

12 hours ago

If last week's episode of Hannibal Season 3 was a funereal contemplation of loss and unresolved anger, "Contorno" features what will surely be only the first bloody torrent of vengeance in the wake of Hannibal's trip to Florence. As Will and Chiyo make their way from Lithuania to Italy, Inspector Pazzi (Fortunato Cerlino) began to set a trap for his would-be prey, one ultimately done at the behest of Mason Verger (Joe Anderson). Rather than simply call his colleagues and take in the "monster of Florence," Pazzi looks to cash-in on Hannibal's capture, and "Contorno" felt distinctly aware of the dangers of ignoring one's past or, conversely, allowing it to slow you down. When Pazzi and his monster meet again, their conversation about the history of the inspector's family, their depictions in art and myth, slyly telegraphs his brutal end.    [caption id="attachment_481277" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via NBC[/caption] Of course, Pazzi wasn't the only one considering his past. »

Independence Day: Resurgence (Idr): Celebrate July 4th President Whitmore-Style

2 July 2015 2:40 PM, PDT

Ever since Bill Pullman led an air squadron of amateur pilots into combat against invading aliens in Independence Day back in 1996, President Whitmore's inspiring pre-battle speech has been a July 4th necessity. In honor of the holiday, not only did 20th Century Fox just release a clip of the original speech for you to enjoy to your heart's content, but now you can also record a video of yourself delivering it using Dubsmash.

Mark Wahlberg, Ronda Rousey Team for Peter Berg Actioner Mile 22

2 July 2015 2:37 PM, PDT

When J.C. Chandor dropped out of directing Deepwater Horizon, star Mark Wahlberg enlisted his Lone Survivor helmer Peter Berg to take over the reins. Now it appears that the duo are planning yet another reteam, this time on a diversely casted actioner set in Indonesia. THR reports that Wahlberg will topline an action film called Mile 22 for Stx Entertainment with Berg attached to direct and produce. Additionally, Ufc champion Ronda Rousey and The Raid star Iko Uwais are also set to star alongside Wahlberg, ensuring there will be plenty of fisticuffs to go around. Written by Graham Roland, Mile 22 revolves around a CIA agent (Wahlberg) stationed in Indonesia who must transport a compromised informant from the center of a city to an awaiting getaway plane at an airport that is—surprise—22 miles away. Standing in their way are corrupt officials, criminal overlords, and heavily-armed locals. [caption id="attachment_460055" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Warner Bros.[/caption] »

Ash Vs Evil Dead Images Dare to Open the Necronomicon

2 July 2015 1:59 PM, PDT

Yesterday's news brought the first look at Bruce Campbell and his co-stars of Ash vs Evil Dead, Starz new half-hour horror/comedy series coming to television this fall. Today, we have a peek at the Necronomicon, the vile book of the dead which has been a consistent cause of conflict throughout the Evil Dead installments. Bound in human flesh and inked in blood, this tome has the ability of summoning the mysterious, nefarious entity known as The Force, which can reanimate the dead (among other horrible things). If you're able to decipher the Necronomicon's text, I recommend that you keep it to yourself, and strongly suggest that you don't read it out loud. Check out some early looks at the new Necronomicon from Ash vs Evil Dead (via EW): [caption id="attachment_481099" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Image via EW[/caption] [caption id="attachment_481101" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Image via EW[/caption] [caption id="attachment_481211" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Image via EW[/caption] Here’s the Comic-Con panel info for Ash »

Arnold Schwarzenegger Says Terminator Genisys Didn’t Need James Cameron’s Endorsement

2 July 2015 1:54 PM, PDT

In theaters now is Paramount Pictures’ new sci-fi pic Terminator Genisys. Directed by Alan Taylor, the fifth entry in the franchise goes back to the very beginning, as it presents an alternate 1984 timeline while honoring the legacy of James Cameron’s first two films. While the Terminator series continued beyond Cameron’s entries, it never quite matched the quality of those films. So it was a big boon for Genisys when Cameron himself gave the new film his endorsement, saying he sees it as the true third film in the franchise. When Collider recently spoke with Schwarzenegger at the Berlin premiere of Terminator Genisys, the actor reflected on his working relationship and friendship with Cameron, but also added that he didn’t think the Genisys marketing campaign needed to use Cameron’s endorsement. The movie’s quality speaks for itself, argues Schwarzenegger. Check out what else Schwarzenegger had to say in the video below, »
