‘Ghost Dog’ Sequel In The Works

9 hours ago

Jim Jarmusch has been keeping it pretty chill since last year’s release of “Paterson” and “Gimme Danger,” but the director always has a couple irons in the fire. Last month, Tilda Swinton revealed she was gearing up to reunite with the filmmaker on a new project, which is yet to be revealed. But it seems that’s not all the director has cooking up. »

Armie Hammer Is Already A Winner On The ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Tour [Interview]

2 hours ago

Armie Hammer is searching the eighth floor of the Beverly Wilshire hotel looking for his publicist.  He’s wearing a sharp pseudo-Hawaiian inspired print shirt that screams Ted Baker (even if it isn’t) with a sleek cut cut blue blazer and pants.  Following our interview I’d told him the shirt was great while omitting the fact I have a thing for flowered print t-shirts. His publicist, on the other hand, thinks Hammer’s ensemble is a mistake.

2 hours ago

The post-Harvey Weinstein world is going to give awards season hosts a lot of fodder to dive into, and you can bet this year’s Golden Globes is going to have some choice ammunition coming from the stage.

The man behind the desk of “Late Night With Seth Meyers” will stand up and take the mic at the 2018 Golden Globes, with a deal coming into place.

Damon Lindelof Talks ‘Watchmen’ & Why “What We Think About Superheroes Is Wrong”

3 hours ago

Credit to Damon Lindelof, he’s not afraid to take a risk. Everyone still argues about the merits (or lack thereof) when it comes to “Lost,” and the writer put his pen to the very contentious “Prometheus.” Still, that didn’t stop him from tackling “The Leftovers,” which finished its three season run this year in such spectacular fashion, and is already going down as one of the all time, small screen greats.

Lizzy Caplan Joins ‘Gambit’ With Channing Tatum

4 hours ago

Honestly, with so many delays and directors bouncing in and out, we figured “Gambit” was one of those superhero projects that would be talked to death, but never get made. Guess we’re wrong. The solo movie is casting up and the forever attached Channing Tatum now has a co-star.

Lizzy Caplan (“Masters Of Sex,” “Ill Behaviour,” “Now You See Me 2“) has signed up for the female lead role.

Start Franchise Dreaming Again: Sony Considering Buying Fox

4 hours ago

For a very brief moment earlier this month, nerds got a chance to dream of a world where Disney bought 20th Century Fox and brought the “X-Men, “Alien,” and “Avatar” franchises under the same roof as Marvel and Lucasfilm. Those talks came to an end after reports emerged, but the bottom line is that Fox is looking to sell.

‘Punisher’ Showrunner Steven Lightfoot Talks Taking The Hand Of Violence & Not Letting Go

5 hours ago

Marvel’s “The Punisher” might be set within the New York universe that features Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage, but it has almost nothing to do with superheroes themselves. You don’t need to have binge-watched this new Netflix series this weekend in its entirety to know –  the fact is evident from minute one. The Punisher is a ruthless vigilante, with a code of honor, albeit a very distorted one.

Armie Hammer Says Nate Parker/Casey Affleck Double Standard “Doesn’t Make Sense”

6 hours ago

One wonders how last year’s Oscar race would’ve played out differently if it had unfolded in the current, post-Harvey Weinstein climate. As Hollywood continues to unpack the endemic problem of sexism and assault found in all reaches of the industry, it’s making many reconsider how those who have been accused are treated, and the double standards that are in place.

During last year’s awards run, Nate Parker was initially seen as a frontrunner for multiple Oscar nominations in major categories with “The Birth Of A Nation.” The film was a Sundance darling, with Fox Searchlight paying a whopping $17.5 million for the picture.

‘Darkest Hour’: Gary Oldman & Joe Wright Talk Recreating & Discovering Winston Churchill

6 hours ago

The 92nd Street Y’s Reel Pieces series has consistently hit it out of the park with the high caliber of actors and directors that it hosts. However, a recent Thursday night in November which was dedicated to Academy Award-nominated actor Gary Oldman and director Joe Wright was something special. After a series of highlight clips from his awe-inspiring career and a preview screening of “Darkest Hour” where he transforms into Winston Churchill, Gary Oldman spoke at length about the film with the moderator, Annette Insdorf.

‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Season 5 Trailer Goes To Outer Space

7 hours ago

Landing in that category of “oh my god, is this still on?”, ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” continues to plug along, five seasons in despite tepid reviews throughout and dwindling viewers. Still, the hardcore Marvel fans remain, happy to press on through the slog of the upcoming season for the simple payoff of being able to exist in that universe.

As has been the case with many of Marvel’s television shows, the quality of ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ has very rarely (if, honestly, ever) lived up to the quality of the films.

‘Phantom Thread’ Annoucement: Daniel Day-Lewis Stitches Fashion Forward Drama

7 hours ago

Many would claim this title belongs to Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson, or Quentin Tarantino but I would argue that  Paul Thomas Anderson is the most eclectic, versatile filmmaker in the industry. From exploring the drug and sex-filled world of 1970s Los Angeles in “Boogie Nights,” to examining the prolonged desire for fulfillment through one lonely man in the vastly underappreciated “Punch-Drunk Love” – and even making a tale of the overwhelming power of greed set near an oil rig at the turn of the 20th century in the Academy-Award winning “There Will Be Blood,” Anderson has proven that no matter the shifting trends in genre, he will make whatever film he wants, whenever he wants.

‘Justice League’: Scenes From The Trailers Not In The Movie Plus Every Easter Egg

7 hours ago

Not to seem like I’m unduly beating up on “Justice League” (though, it’s fairly easy) when it comes to trailers featuring footage that wasn’t in the finished movie, the crown still belong to “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”  Say what you will about reshoots, but the “Star Wars” spinoff was arguably even more overhauled that the DC Films mess. Still, there was quite a bit featured in the promos for the superhero team-up movie that was left on the cutting room floor.

‘Thelma’ Clip: Religion & Science Collide Over Cola [Exclusive]

8 hours ago

One of the year’s best and most beautiful movies involves superpowers, and we’re not talking about “Justice League,” “Thor: Ragnarok,” or any other Marvel or DC movie. Instead, we’re talking about Joachim Trier‘s “Thelma,” a cinematic treasure that mixes the supernatural and spiritual into a spellbinding tale of coming of age and identity. It’s not to be missed, especially on the big screen — believe it or not, the film has approximately 200 CGI shots — and today we have an exclusive clip that highlights the film’s rich, thematic center.

Danny Elfman Explains What Superhero Franchises Need To Learn From ‘Star Wars’

9 hours ago

Let’s face it, nothing about “Justice League” feels fully formed. The collision of Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon‘s work neutered both their directorial touches and the film feels like it was patched together into something that would run two hours long. Nothing about it feels like a complete vision. So, it’s not a big shock to hear that Danny Elfman was left to run and gun when it came to replacing Junkie Xl and delivering the score.

Fans Petition For Release Of Zack Snyder’s Cut Of ‘Justice League’

10 hours ago

Ask any diehard Zack Snyder fan, and they’ll swear to you, the extended cut of “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” fixes all the problems of the inept theatrical version. It was the silver lining they clung to following the disappointment of that film, and now they’re seeking a new life preserver in the wake of “Justice League.” The film’s rocky start at the box office and dismal reviews have started the finger pointing about where it all went wrong, but it’s clear the mishmash of Snyder and Whedon’s visions didn’t leave either director looking their best.

Chris Miller & Phil Lord Talk Exit From ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’: “Sometimes People Break Up”

10 hours ago

One of the biggest news stories of the summer — if not the year — was Phil Lord and Chris Miller‘s sudden exit from “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” Heck, the movie didn’t even have an official title when they left. The spinoff was in the middle of production, but the directors behind “The Lego Movie” and “21 Jump Street” reportedly ran afoul of Kathleen Kennedy and Lawrence Kasdan, by deviating from the script, and putting their own irreverent touch on the material.

Plot Details Revealed For Quentin Tarantino’s 1960s “Not Charles Manson” Movie

22 hours ago

It all came crumbling down for American ideals in 1969. As hippies were preaching “flower power” and genuine notions of compassion and human empathy, Charles Manson came into the picture to crush dreams and pervert the message of peace with his own nightmarish vision of America. Claiming to be one of these free thinking hipsters, Manson had a different agenda; he was an agent of the dark side of cultural change. The Manson murders, along with the Altamont Speedway incident, most notably featured in the Rolling Stones documentary “Gimme Shelter,” essentially ended the flower movement and brought the country back to reality.

‘A Wrinkle In Time’ Trailer: Ava DuVernay Serves Up A Cosmic Adventure

23 hours ago

History, in Hollywood, can be a slow-moving beast. For instance, it was just this year that Patty Jenkins smashed box office records for a film directed by a woman with “Wonder Woman” when the film crossed the $700 million mark, an exciting feat but one sullied by the fact that it took a decade for two films directed by women to even make $600 million (in that time over 25 movies directed by men crossed the $1 billion mark).
