Cable Rumored For 'Deadpool 2,' Writers Tease More X-Men In The Future

53 minutes ago

"Deadpool" is looking like it'll be a big smash hit this weekend, to the point that 20th Century Fox has already greenlit a sequel. And while the movie is positioned as the anti-superhero movie that stands apart from the crowd, there's a strong part of it that wants to be part of the X-Men world, and the screenwriters of "Deadpool" and the sequel, Rhett Reese and Paul Werick, suggest as much in their chat with Yahoo. "We haven’t seen 'X-Men: Apocalypse.' We don’t know what’s coming. [Simon Kinberg] knows what’s coming, and he also knows what’s the plan after 'Apocalypse.' It’s much easier for us to figure out how to plug X-Men into Deadpool’s universe than to figure out how to plug Deadpool into other universes. And that will be something that probably collectively, if we succeed, we’ll all come together on, »

First Look Photos: Tom Hanks In Tom Tykwer’s ‘A Hologram For The King’

1 hour ago

Cloud Atlas” might have been an ambitious folly, but if there’s one person who probably enjoyed the experience, it’s Tom Hanks. While the film is largely credited to the Wachowski siblings, one has to remember it was actually co-directed by German filmmaker Tom Tykwer, known for “Run Lola Run,” and it was said the Wachowskis handled the more fantastical elements of the film with Tykwer helming the more realistic sections. Either way, what did Hanks pretty much do straight after ‘Atlas’? Sign up for Tom Tykwer’s next project, “A Hologram For The King,” and it’s a bit of a change of pace. It’s a German-American-produced comedy drama based on the 2012 novel of the same name written by Dave Eggers. The film stars Hanks, Tom Skerritt and Sarita Choudhury from “Homeland” and the dramedy tells the story of a washed-up, desperate American salesman who travels to »

Watch: It's God Vs. Man In New Trailer For 'Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice'

1 hour ago

It doesn't need to be repeated but Warner Bros. has a lot riding on "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice." So, they aren't playing coy when it comes to marketing the movie, and today comes yet another trailer which offers a slightly different tone, some new footage, and confirms this is a Zack Snyder joint all the way. Read More: Watch: The Bat Is Dead In New Clip From 'Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice' You know the basic rundown by now: Ben Affleck is an older gritty Batman, who doesn't take so kindly to Henry Cavill's Superman's destructive tendencies. Thus, they become enemies until they united against a common foe in Doomsday, with a little help from Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman. According to Kevin Smith, Affleck will be a great Batman (see below), but it doesn't take much to get him excited. "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice »

Review: Somber And Profoundly Effective 'Glassland' Starring Jack Reynor & Toni Collette

1 hour ago

Dealing with a beloved relative or friend who’s an addict is a double-edged sword. Common sense dictates that if an addict is mad at you, you’re probably helping them get better, but if they’re happy when they’re around you, you’re probably their enabler. If you want your loved one to be happy and jolly all the time, you will more than likely have to accept that they will eventually kill themselves via their drug of choice. If you want to save them, you will have to turn yourself into a willing receptacle for all of their hate and bitterness. That’s the horrible situation that modest and sorrowful taxi driver John (Jack Reynor) finds himself dealing with, in the somber and profoundly effective Irish drama “Glassland,” as he tries to find a way to keep his hopelessly alcoholic mother Jean (Toni Collette) away from booze »

Danny McBride Suits Up For 'Alien: Covenant'

2 hours ago

There comes a time when every comic actor gives a turn toward fulfilling their cinephile side (see Jonah Hill, James Franco, Seth Rogen, Steve Carell etc.), and that's no different for Danny McBride. His first credited role was actually in his pal David Gordon Green's "All The Real Girls," and last year he crossed Cameron Crowe off the list with the misfire "Aloha." But now he's making the biggest movie of his career, with one of Hollywood's most legendary figures. Read More: 'Alien: Covenant' Will Be Set Ten Years After 'Prometheus' The Wrap reports that McBride is in early talks for Ridley Scott's "Alien: Covenant." He'll be joining Michael Fassbender and Katherine Waterston in the new movie that follows the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, who discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, »

Watch: Kristen Stewart & Nicholas Hoult Fall In Love In New Trailer For Drake Doremus’ ‘Equals’

2 hours ago

Romeo and Juliet in a sterile sci-fi dystopian world? This is how Drake Doremus’ “Equals” has been described in some circles, albeit maybe a bit glibly. Still, Doremus, the excellent indie filmmaker behind “Breathe In,” and “Like Crazy,” has a deep affinity for making woozy romance pictures, and so “Equals” intrigues. Plus there’s the cast that stars Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult, plus Guy Pearce, Jacki Weaver, and also features Kate Lyn Sheil and Toby Huss. Read More: Venice Review: Drake Doremus' 'Equals' With Kristen Stewart, Nicholas Hoult, Guy Pearce & Jacki WeaverEquals” premiered in Venice to mixed reviews, including ours, but tastemaking studio A24 bought the film last year and they have a good track record of buying misunderstood pictures like “The Rover” (though maybe not the greatest example because that film tanked at the box-office, but it’s really good!). We digress. Here’s »

Joe Wright To Direct Episode Of Netflix's 'Black Mirror' Starring Bryce Dallas Howard & Alice Eve

3 hours ago

While critics dumped on "Pan," and audiences stayed away in droves, I'm going to make a prediction that give it a few years, and Joe Wright's blockbuster flop will become "rediscovered" as a cult movie. I actually thought the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" moment was kinda ballsy, and there were quite a few nifty setpieces in the picture. It's not a good movie, but there's some decent stuff in there, and give it time and distance, and I won't be surprised if opinions soften a bit. All this to say, Wright does have some penance to make, and he'll be doing it over at Netflix.

Watch: Tina Fey Goes To Afghanistan In New Trailer For 'Whiskey Tango Foxtrot' With Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman, More

3 hours ago

It's always a bit delicate when comedies drop American actors into foreign lands and aim for laughs, and in the upcoming "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot," the jokes look to be mostly at the expense of Tina Fey, though some stereotypes of Middle Easterners also get dragged out. Read More: Watch: Tina Fey Signals 'Whiskey Tango Foxtrot' In Frist Trailer For Wartime Comedy Based on the memoir by Kim Barker, and co-starring Martin Freeman, Margot Robbie, Billy Bob Thornton, and Christopher Abbott, the story follows an American reporter who rolls the dice and takes an assignment abroad, hoping to change up her life. And it looks like her eyes are opened to a new culture, and she grows as a person and finds herself along the way, as these things usually go. Directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, ("Focus," "Crazy Stupid Love"), "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" opens on March 4th. »

Watch: First Trailer For Spy Thriller 'Our Kind Of Traitor' Starring Ewan McGregor, Naomie Harris & Stellan Skarsgard

6 hours ago

Audiences just can’t get enough of spies, it seems: last year saw a wealth of different super-agents on screen, from long-running heroes James Bond and Ethan Hunt, to fresher faces from “Kingsman: The Secret Service” and “Spy,” to Oscar nominee “Bridge Of Spies,” and mostly with great success financially. This year is a little quieter, but not by much, with “The Brothers Grimsby” and “Jason Bourne” among those on the way, we’re also seeing a resurgence of one of the kings of the genre, author John Le Carre. The success of “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” a few years ago made the veteran author hot again, and surprisingly strong box office for “A Most Wanted Man” helped to, so we’re soon to get a couple more. First up is Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie in miniseries adaptation “The Night Manager,” and soon to follow is big-screen outing “Our Kind Of Traitor, »

Watch: New Trailer For First-Person Sci-Fi Actioner 'Hardcore Henry' Starring Sharlto Copley

14 hours ago

While shooting an entire movie from a first person Pov might seem like a gimmick, director  Ilya Naishuller is carving out his niche. He's already directed two music videos for Biting Elbows which earned attention for their visceral perspective, and now he's going for feature length thrills with "Hardcore Henry."  Read More: Watch: Trailer For Tiff's First-Person Sci-Fi Actioner 'Hardcore Henry' Sharlto Copley, Danila Kozlovsky, Haley Bennett, Andrey Dementyev, Dasha Charusha, and Sveta Ustinova star in the movie about a cybernetic super-soldier who has to save his wife, leading to plenty of action of carnage. Here's the official synopsis:  Strap in. Hardcore Henry is one of the most unflinchingly original wild-rides to hit the big screen in a long time:  You remember nothing. Mainly because you've just been brought back from the dead by your wife (Haley Bennett). She tells you that your name is Henry. Five minutes later, you are being shot. »

Watch: Futures Get Destroyed In The Venomous New Trailer For ‘House Of Cards’ Season 4

15 hours ago

"Without me, you are nothing.” Is showrunner and creator Beau Willimon going out with a bang on his last season of “House Of Cards”? The American political drama on Netflix just got renewed for season five, but in the announcement was the additional news that Willimon was departing to try new creative endeavors. And so (*spoilers ahead*), as Willimon and his staff roll into season four, it appears the animosities of last season are all the more bilious.  There were mixed reactions to “House Of Cards” season three, but frankly, they were unwarranted. Three jumped back on form from season two which nearly jumped the shark with suspension-of-disbelief strains of credulity. At the end of season three, the Underwood foundation of the show Potus Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and first lady Claire (Robin Wright) had buckled under the weight of the election and years of marital betrayals and hostilities.

Idris Elba To Lead Long Developing Fox Romance 'The Mountain Between Us'

18 hours ago

For a while now, there has been a mountain of sorts between Fox’s desire to turns Charles Martin's “The Mountain Between Us” into a movie, and getting the job done. Gerardo Naranjo (“Miss Bala") was initially slated to direct Michael Fassbender and Margot Robbie (would've loved to see that), before that version fell apart. And then Charlie Hunnam and Rosamund Pike were attached before they too exited. Now another actor is aboard who can hopefully get this thing done.

Review: Tobias Lindholm's Controlled, Thought-Provoking, And Oscar Nominated 'A War' Starring Pilou Asbæk

19 hours ago

Company Commander Claus Pedersen is a good man. We know this from practically the first scene in Danish director Tobias Lindholm's "A War," and not just because he is played with characteristic everyman integrity by the preternaturally sympathetic Pilou Asbæk. It's in the way he hovers worriedly over the radio back at base camp as he hears news of a routine patrol of the surrounding Afghan countryside going horribly awry. It's in the way he picks the exact right tone of voice to talk to the shellshocked men who return, some splattered with blood not their own. It's in the way his goodness is mirrored in that of his wife Maria (Tuva Novotny) at home in Denmark, raising three unruly children without him, in wry good humor. We know Claus is a good man for every decision he makes and every motivation he has throughout the course of this »

Watch: New U.S. Trailer For Lance Armstrong Drama 'The Program' Starring Ben Foster, Jesse Plemons, Dustin Hoffman, More

19 hours ago

There a few sports stories like that surrounding Lance Armstrong, the formerly beloved and inspiration cycling champion, who soon become the poster boy for disgrace and duplicity. It's rich dramatic material, and it's no surprise the story has made it to film, but it's a bit of a bummer there hasn't been that much excitement about Stephen Frears' "The Program." Read More: Watch: Three New Clips From 'The Program' With Ben Foster The always reliable Ben Foster leads the adaptation of David Walsh's book "Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong," that tracks the downfall of Armstrong as the controversy about his alleged doping began to swirl. And there's a solid supporting cast in place including Chris O'Dowd, Jesse Plemons, Dustin Hoffman, and Guillaume Canet taking roles. And while the picture didn't quite work for our critic at Tiff, I'm nonetheless curious to check it out. »

Watch: Sacha Baron Cohen Goes Undercover In New Red Band Trailer For 'The Brothers Grimsby'

19 hours ago

Sometimes, marketing a movie means getting a bit shameless, and that's what Sony has done with their latest red band spot for "The Brothers Grimsby." In case you didn't know who Sacha Baron Cohen was, this new spot reminds you he's the guy who was Ali G and Borat, before diving into his upcoming comedy. While direct and effective, it maybe doesn't give the audience enough credit... But hey, whatever works. Read More: Watch: Sacha Baron Cohen Is An Empty Headed Hooligan In Trailer For 'The Brothers Grimsby' As you likely know by now, the comedy co-stars Mark StrongRebel Wilson, Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, Gabourey Sidibe and Isla Fisher, and follows estranged brothers, who are reunited, but of course they couldn't be more different. One is a soccer loving doofus, and the other is super serious secret spy. What could go wrong? Here's the synopsis:  Nobby has »

Watch: 2-Minute Supercut Of Coen Brothers Pov Shots

20 hours ago

It’s only been two years since "Inside Llewyn Davis", the last film by Joel and Ethan Coen, hit screens, but for some diehard fans that’s far too long. Last week though finally brought some respite with the release of the highly anticipated “Hail, Caesar!,” an energetic and often grand peeling back of the curtain on the golden age of Hollywood (our review). The film, like all of the Coens’ lighter fare is packed with oddball comedy and A-list actors having lots of fun, often at their own expense (see: George Clooney, a movie star who can be a movie star and make fun of movie stars). Basically, it's a Coen brothers film, complete with their distinct narrative flair, gorgeous cinematography from long time collaborator Roger Deakins, and music from Carter Burwell. It’s a film that’s well worth braving the February cold to see. Read More: Ranked: »

Kate Winslet Joins Star-Studded Cast Of Will Smith's 'Collateral Beauty,' To Help Battle 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'

20 hours ago

It's funny to remember that at one time, "Collateral Beauty" was in dire straights. Originally, it was set to star Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara, with "Me And Earl And The Dying Girl" director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon behind the camera. But first Jackman left, only to be replaced by Will Smith. Then Mara and Gomez-Rejon both exited, and the project seemed to be in peril. But man, has it ever bounced back. Read More: Watch 15-Minute Talk With Will Smith And 'Concussion' Filmmakers Kate Winslet has joined the ensemble which now includes Keira KnightleyHelen MirrenEdward Norton, Michael Peña and Naomie Harris.

Samuel L. Jackson Eyes Stephen King's 'Revival,' Josh Boone To Direct Before Making 'The Stand'

20 hours ago

For those of you anticipating the big screen version of "The Stand," you're going to have to wait. Last week, Deadline reported that Warner Bros. option on the film rights has expired, and the project is now back in the hands of CBS Films, who can either go it alone, or find a studio to collaborate with. But director Josh Boone isn't going to wait around, and he's got another Stephen King project brewing. He'll be writing and directing an adaptation of "Revival," which is currently looking for a studio home. That process might be helped along by Samuel L. Jackson, who EW says is circling the lead role of Charles Jacobs, a preacher who loses faith when his wife and child are killed in a tragic accident. Here's the book synopsis:  In a small New England town, over half a century ago, a shadow falls over a small boy playing with his toy soldiers. »

Watch: 8-Minute Video Essay Investigates The Morality Of Denis Villeneuve's 'Sicario'

21 hours ago

One of the more purely visceral filmgoing experiences of last year was the hard-hitting “Sicario,” which was the rarest of things: a corpse-littered cartel land thriller that didn’t inevitably resort to dopey action movie clichés to get its points across. The film was also another shattering work from the ever-exciting Denis Villeneuve, whose artistic preoccupations clearly gravitate toward the murky intersection of what it means to be moral and what it means to survive. The director’s last few films, including “Incendies,” “Prisoners,” and “Enemy,” all have their own unique and respective vibe. And yet all are also fundamentally concerned with the duplicitous nature of surfaces and the emotional cost of violence. In “Sicario,” FBI agent Kate Macer (Emily Blunt) learns very quickly that she can’t trust anyone or anything she’s being told: the truth is but an illusion in this bleak world, shifting randomly and without »

The 25 Best TV Dramas Since 'The Sopranos'

21 hours ago

This coming Sunday sees what might be one of the biggest event's of the early 2016 TV season — the arrival of HBO’s big new drama “Vinyl.” The show, which focuses on the record industry in the early 1970s and stars Bobby Cannavale, Juno Temple, Ray Romano and more, marks the cable network’s second collaboration with director Martin Scorsese (who produces the show with Mick Jagger, and who directs the two-hour pilot), after “Boardwalk Empire.” The show was co-created with Terence Winter, who was one of the key writers on “The Sopranos,” which reinvented television drama. Others paved the way for it — “NYPD Blue,” “Homicide: Life On The Street,” and HBO’s first drama series “Oz.” But “The Sopranos” was the one that changed everything, dominating pop culture, drawing huge ratings and massive critical acclaim, and helping to prove that the small screen could be home for truly groundbreaking work »
