3 hours ago

While David Fincher might be confirmed to direct “World War Z 2“ with his old bud Brad Pitt, that project is probably some way off. The director is likely putting the finishing touches on his highly anticipated new Netflix series “Mindhunter” which drops this fall, so it gives Pitt the chance to work with another old pal, James Gray. The actor signed up to play in the lead in the sci-fi “Ad Astra,” and now he’s being joined by legendary veteran.

‘Valerian’ Director Luc Besson Explains Why France’s Most Expensive Film Ever Isn’t Much Risk For The Studio

4 hours ago

When Christopher Nolan‘s “Dunkirk” opens next month, it’s going to have some competition from another movie offering plenty of big screen spectacle: “Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets.” Luc Besson‘s big, sci-fi flick is the most expensive to have ever been made in France, with a a final price tag of €197.47 million (about $210 million U.S.). That’s not cheap, and while you might think the film needs to be a monster hit for backers EuropaCorp (which Besson heads up), the director explains they’re pretty well covered.

Edgar Wright Reveals Why He Exited ‘Ant-Man’

5 hours ago

There are three things I can tell you before you going to see “Baby Driver” next weekend: believe the hype; Edgar Wright directs the shit out of it; and don’t watch the trailers. While it’s not a comeback movie for Wright, it is a massive bounce back after a very public exit from Marvel‘s “Ant-Man.” However, it’s clear the filmmaker didn’t lose any his vibrant filmmaking voice in the process, and in fact, “Baby Driver” proves his skills have never been sharper.

6 hours ago

Mandy Moore has made a statement. No, she hasn’t given a political speech or stood up at protest rally (although she is vocal in those areas).  Moore made a statement with her impressive performance as Rebecca Pearson in Dan Fogelman‘s breakout NBC drama “This Is Us.”

As Rebecca, Moore not only plays her character in the late ’70s and early ’80s, but as a sixtysomething grandmother in modern day.

Jean-Claude Van Damme Wanted More Kickboxing In ‘Predator’

6 hours ago

Believe it or not, 1987’s “Predator” could have been even more badass. Seriously, even with the already macho team-up of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, Bill Duke, and Jesse Ventura, there actually was going to be one more person that would have made it even better – Jean-Claude Van Damme. That’s right, Jcvd was actually originally cast as the Predator.

Mark Wahlberg Doesn’t Think Michael Bay Is Going To Quit ‘Transformers’

6 hours ago

In the past week both Mark Wahlberg and Michael Bay announced that after this weekend’s “Transformers: The Last Knight,” they were both done with the franchise. However, when it comes to the director, we’ve heard this before. After the past couple of “Transformers” movies, Bay had said he was done smashing robots together, only to come back and do it again.

8 hours ago

There are not shortage of films about navigating the complicated, contemporary world of dating and romance, but few of them are coming with kind of lead turn that “The Daily Show” correspondent Jessica Williams provides in “The Incredible Jessica James.” She’s the charismatic heart of what looks to be an amusing look at modern love.

Directed by Jim Strouse (“Grace Is Gone,” “People Places Things“), and co-starring Chris O’Dowd, Lakeith Stanfield, and Noël Wells, the film follows a young woman getting over a breakup who falls into an unlikely romance.

However, if you feel like deciphering clues, the tracklist for Hans Zimmer‘s soundtrack for the film has landed.

New Trailer For ‘Columbus’ Finds John Cho & Haley Lu Richardson Doing Some Soul Searching

11 hours ago

John Cho has been on edges of being a big name for a while now, possessing the talents and the looks to conceivably have a huge, Hollywood career but never quite landing similar roles as say, his “Star Trek” co-stars. He’s shown throughout the years that his range is big, going from broad comedy in the “Harold & Kumar” series, to understated, leading man smoldering in short lived TV series “Selfie” to action hero as Hikaru Sulu.

22 June 2017 3:26 PM, PDT

The fury of speculation and trades working their sources continues to fly in the wake of Phil Lord and Chris Miller being fired from the untitled, Han Solo “Star Wars” spinoff film. Since the news first broke, “creative differences” were said to be the culprint, but rarely does the vision between filmmakers and a studio diverge so wildly, that directors are canned during filming. Clearly, the rift couldn’t be mended, and EW dives into exactly what was going on behind-the-scenes.

22 June 2017 1:23 PM, PDT

BBC America is emerging as one of the networks making some very original and different series. “Orphan Black” has been a mainstay on the channel, and has a dedicated fanbase and a good amount of critical acclaim. “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency” hasn’t been around very long, but most definitely falls under that aforementioned “different” category. Now, BBC America is gearing up production on another series titled “Killing Eve.”

Killing Eve” is based on a series of novellas by Luke Jennings, and tells the story of a psychopathic assassin and the woman hunting her down.
