Alden Ehrenreich Set For a Han Solo Movie Trilogy?

1 hour ago

According to the New York Daily News there are two more Han Solo Star Wars anthology films are on the way. The site says that Disney has quietly signed 26-year-old Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) to a three-picture deal, if the one currently being written strikes gold at the box office.

Their insider says: 

"There is a real sense of excitement around the Han Solo movie and its potential. Given that Han’s early adventures do not need to be tied to the Empire, it leaves story lines open with the opportunity to really give fans something different. They can explore new galaxies and crazy creatures and bring in a wide array of new characters."

The Han Solo Star Wars spinoff will focus on how young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom we first encountered in the original Star Wars.

The film is being produced and scripted by Lawrence Kasdan, »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2: James Gunn Shares New Bts Photos Of New Gang Of Ravagers

4 hours ago

While no one outside of the Hall H Guardians Of The Galaxy panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con will get to see the footage (in HD, at least), director James Gunn was not shy about releasing extra details he revealed. In an extensive Facebook post from Gunn, he pretty much broke down all the big pieces of news he dropped. One of them had to do with Kurt Russell'S Role In The Film, and another had to do with a familiar group of outlaws from the first Guardians Of The Galaxy film, the Ravagers.

When we last saw the gang of bandits, they were led by Yondu, who had let Peter Quill after the latter man didn't give the former man one of the Infinity Stones. Gunn went into greater detail in his post as he described the panel.

The Flash: Kiersey Clemons To Star In DC Film As Iris West

5 hours ago

A few weeks ago, We Reported That Dope actress Kiersey Clemens was the top choice for the role of Iris West in the upcoming Flash film from DC and Warner Bros.

Now, according to Variety, insiders claim that Clemens is even more likely to play the friend, journalist, and love interest of Barry Allen. While this is by no means an official confirmation (and the wording in the article is annoyingly noncommittal), odds are good that Clemens is all but guaranteed jump onto the DC project.

This would be a great addition to the cast which, as of this writing, only has Ezra Miller attached to star. The film faced a minor setback earlier this year when the film's director Seth Grahame-Smith exited the project, citing creative differences with the studio. Luckily, Rick Famuyiwa, the more experienced director of last year's Dope, hopped on board to helm the film.

Max Landis Teases Pepé Le Pew Film

5 hours ago

We should've seen this coming, folks. And yet we did nothing.

Of course the womanizing French skunk known as Pepé Le Pew would be high on Warner Bros. priority list to turn into a feature-length animated film. Though while it would've been easy to throw this bad boy straight down the toilet, the studio actually invested in some great talent by hiring Max Landis to adapt the character, as revealed by a tweet from the outspoken screenwriter.

Perhaps it is lucky you will never see the look of deranged manic glee on my face when I write Pepe Le Pew dialogue. pic.twitter.com/ycr3eKLcQ4

Max Landis (@Uptomyknees) July 25, 2016

While a funny character growing up, Pepé Le Pew is definitely one that normally wouldn't fly in today's modern society, as the character is in constant pursuit of love, and he never takes "no" for answer. In a YouTube video, »

Michael Fassbender Says Alien: Covenant Is Much Scarier Than Prometheus

5 hours ago

The Alien franchise hasn't exactly been branded as the feel-good series of the century. It is a series that had its origins in the sci-fi/horror genres before it quickly moved into the action/sci-fi genre with its sophomore outing, Prometheus. Ever since then, it's largely stayed squarely within the general science fiction genre, with plenty of action to spare. The closest the series ever got back to its original tone was probably in 2012's Prometheus, but it still never compared to the original in the horror arena. 

In a recent interview with Collider, actor Michael Fassbender (who plays the morally ambiguous android, David) expressed his satisfaction with Alien: Covenant, the direct sequel to Prometheus and prequel to the original Alien.

“This Alien is going to be… I’m very excited to see it and everybody in the film was saying this is a film that we all want to see. »

TV Review: The Night Of "A Dark Crate"

6 hours ago

Picking up where we left off in Rikers,  Nas (Riz Ahmed) is still dealing with his new surroundings and everything we know about jail. His response to the question “Do you fear for your life?” was pretty sad. Not knowing whether you should be scared, then getting back “good luck to you” isn’t very reassuring. An ocean of new scenarios washes over his face.

Detective Box’s (Bill Camp) talk with the arresting officers was information we already know. We know that Nas doesn’t look anything like the two hardened men Box points to as an example. And, we know that most jurors aren’t going to give them the same amount of doubt as they would Nas. During the press conference, Nas' heritage is brought up just enough to broach the question of any ties to "organizations." Well, if that doesn't do a good job of casting doubt, »

Charlie Hunnam Will Not Be Back For Pacific Rim Sequel

7 hours ago

While at this year's San Diego Comic-Con promoting King Arthur, actor Charlie Hunnam confirmed he will not be returning in the upcoming Pacific Rim sequel, despite Guillermo del Toro’s recent assurance that a lot of actors from the first film would be back.

Yahoo! Movies caught up with Hunnam and told them that he was actually approached to reprise his role as hero Raleigh Becket but was was forced to exit the production at an early stage due to scheduling conflicts.

“I’m very excited about it. I’m glad they’re making it. “I think it’s going to be great…There was one incarnation of this sequel that involved me heavily, but I was unavailable…Sometimes, non-creative decisions will dictate how something unfolds, which seems bass-ackwards, in the fact that we’re making art – or, at least, aspiring to make art. But yeah, it just ended up »

TV Review: Vice Principals "A Trusty Steed"

7 hours ago

Russell (Walton Goggins) and Gamby (Danny McBride) are coordinated right from the get-go.  Unfortunately, looking through Dr. Brown’s (Kimberly Hebert Gregory) past reveals that she has no fear of firing everyone in the office and starting from scratch. Dr. Brown doesn’t sugarcoat it, she comes out in this episode just as vengeful as that brief glimpse we received in the first episode.  Dayshawn (Sheaun McKinney) seeing Russell and Gamby come out of the forest after their conspiring was priceless. A simple response from a man who was just having a smoke break and stumbled on what appears to be secret love.

Gamby’s debt is clearly going to become a bigger issue as the series continues on. Hopefully, that will not become too much drama for this half hour comedy. But, the firing scene with an employee that will not be named hinted that the show may go »

Sdcc 2016: Kurt Russell's "Big" Role In Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Revealed -- It's Not Quite What You Think

10 hours ago

Ever since Kurt Russell's name was thrown around as a possible addition to Marvel Studios' Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 cast, it seemed like a foregone conclusion that he'd play the role of Peter Quill's father. He's a character we have yet to see in the franchise, and with this sequel, James Gunn confirmed that a part of Quill's emotional journey will have to do with his parentage, which had remained a mystery up to this point.

Separate from the whole Peter Quill father situation, back in January, We Reported On A Rumor that Ego the Living Planet -- perhaps the strangest character in the Marvel canon -- would likely show up in the film.

Little did we know that these two things would meet. 

During last weekend's San Diego Comic-Con, all suspicions of Kurt Russell playing Star-Lord's father were confirmed...but with twist.

Marvel/Feige: Original Avengers Aren't Being Phased Out, Talks McU's Future

10 hours ago

Something that Marvel Studios is continuously commended for is their ability to look at the big picture while simultaneously making sure that each chapter in their unfolding saga is of the right quality. We've watched other studios stumble out of the gate, where they announce or tease years worth of movies based on a beloved property, only to have a film come out that forces them to either change or scrap all of those plans.

Sony famously had to abandon their plans for a Cinematic Universe based on Spider-Man. Warner Bros. just recently completed putting a facelift on pretty much their entire DC Extended Universe after Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice caused a negative stir for the brand. 

The fact that Marvel has announced ambitious slates, often years in advance, and has been able to meet all of those promises (so far) is worthy of praise. Marvel honcho Kevin Feige »

Power Rangers: The Latest On The Inclusion of Alpha, Zords, and The Theme Song!

11 hours ago

So I was one of those kids who was "too big" to watch Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, but did anyway. The show, which most of my middle school mates had deemed as more of a show for elementary school kids, was part of my viewing habits even at the ripe old age of...13. A year prior, when I was 12, I was probably the oldest kid at the theater to see the original Power Rangers movie. I even geeked out for a few weeks, in high school, when Jason returned as The Gold Ranger in Power Rangers Zeo.

It's interesting to think of how we as a society, and as a culture, have evolved past the idea of being "too big" or "too old" for certain forms of entertainment. Back in 1996, I had to keep my Power Rangers fandom under wraps out of fear that I'd be mercilessly teased in the schoolyard. »

Coogler Talks Up The Connection Between 'Black Panther' And The Current Comic Run

12 hours ago

One of the seemingly insurmountable tasks filmmakers must encounter, when it comes to adapting a beloved comic book character to the big screen, is choosing which book, run, or continuity to pull from. Especially when it's a character that's been around for several decades, has had dozens of great iterations, and unique voices that have added their own touches to the character's legacy. Such is the case for Ryan Coogler, who's charged with bringing Marvel's Black Panther to the big screen.

In a chat with Vulture, he was asked about the comics that are influencing his cinematic take on the character- who was introduced to filmgoers earlier this year in the blockbuster smash Captain America: Civil War. Specifically, he was asked if the current run- written by Ta-Nehisi Coates and illustrated by Brian Stelfreeze- is factoring into his vision for the Black Panther movie.

Trainspotting Sequel 'T2' Gets A Teaser Trailer!!

12 hours ago

I'll admit it: I've never seen the original Trainspotting. Nothing against the film, its stars, or- especially- its director, Danny Boyle. I was just 13 when it came out, and a film about a bunch of British drug addicts didn't scream "Must See Entertainment" at the time. I know it's supposed to be great, and I probably owe it to myself to check Trainspotting out, but my lack of knowledge on the subject doesn't hinder the excitement with which I share this teaser for the sequel with you.

Yes, here we are, 20 years later, and Boyle has managed to reunite the original cast for T2. The teaser, which you can see below, seems ripped right out of the 90s trailers for the original film. The reveal of the iconic Core Four is handled very well and, putting myself in the shoes of people who loved the original Trainspotting, I sort of »
