‘Captain Marvel’ Will Be a Prequel to ‘Iron Man’ and Feature the Skrulls
“Captain Marvel” starring Brie Larson as the studio’s first female superhero to get her own standalone movie will be a prequel set before “Iron Man.” Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige revealed the news at a packed Hall H gathering on Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con. Samuel L. Jackson will also return as Nick Fury for the film — this time without the eyepatch because the film will be set in the 1990s (presumably before he lost use of his left eye).

Steven Spielberg: Iron Giant Is Major Part of ‘Ready Player One’
During a panel discussion at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, Spielberg said that after reading Ernest Cline’s best-selling novel about a virtual reality-addicted future, his first thought was “They’re going to need a younger director.”
Spielberg was joined onstage by Cline and the film’s stars, Tye Sheridan, Ben Mendelsohn, and T.J. Miller. Fans in Hall H were treated to a trailer for a film that overflowed with shout-outs to several geek staples.

‘Dunkirk’ Claims Box Office Victory With $50.5 Million Opening
Riding strong word of mouth and rave reviews, Warner Bros.’ “Dunkirk” took the top spot at the box office this weekend with $50.5 million, blowing by the $30-40 million pre-weekend projections set by independent trackers. By comparison, director Christopher Nolan’s previous film, “Interstellar,” made $49.5 million over a five-day opening in November 2014, and went on to nearly post a 4x multiple with a $188 million domestic total. IMAX, which supplied the cameras for the project, played a major factor in pushing the film past projection windows. On 402 IMAX screens, “Dunkirk” made $11.7 million for a per screen average »

Anthony Scaramucci Gives Sarah Huckabee Sanders Hair and Makeup Tips to Make Her ‘Better’ (Video)
What began as an interview between White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci and CNN’s Jake Tapper about whether President Trump would veto the new Russian sanctions bill somehow turned into a beauty tip for Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “I love the hair and makeup person we had on Friday. I’d like to continue to use the hair and makeup person,” Scaramucci said of the newly promoted press secretary. The interview on Sunday’s “State of the Union” drifted in that direction after Tapper asked if future press briefings would continue to be off-camera. Scaramucci offered up his personal opinion, »

‘Doctor Who’ Showrunner to Press: ‘Shut the Hell Up’ About Jodie Whittaker Backlash
“There has been so many press articles about the backlash among the ‘Doctor Who’ fandom against the casting of a female Doctor,” Moffat said Sunday at Comic-Con. “There has been no backlash at all. The story of the moment is that the notionally conservative ‘Doctor Who’ fandom has utterly embraced that change completely — 80 percent approval on social media, not that I check these things obsessively. And yet so many people wanted to pretend there’s a problem. There isn’t”
“Doctor Who” fans, Moffat said, “are more excited by the fact that there’s going to »

Oscars: Will 'Detroit' Lead To a Third Best Picture Nom For Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal?
Though it’s not yet even August, awards pundits may have just seen their second film in a week that eventually will be a best picture Oscar nominee. Hot on the heels of Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk — which opened on Friday, and for which there was an overflow and very appreciative crowd at the Academy on Saturday night — comes another intense, albeit very different, historical drama, Kathryn Bigelow’s Detroit, the story of a largely-forgotten act of police brutality against a group of young black men, and two young white women, in Michigan’s biggest city during the infamous riot »

Why Hollywood Studios Are Slow to Embrace Virtual Reality
Are virtual and augmented reality truly the Next Big Thing for Hollywood? While every major studio is investing in Vr experiences, so far most are short, under-10-minute extensions of big franchise fare like “Alien: Covenant” or video games expanding on familiar characters like Warner Bros.’ “Batman: Arkham” that have little to do with traditional storytelling. “I believe immersive entertainment is going to be a real thing,” Vicki Dobbs Beck, executive in charge at ILMxLAB, told TheWrap. “We’re in the early stages, and a lot of people are skeptical and taking a wait-and-see approach.” With Vr hailed as a hot game-changing technology, »

‘Dunkirk’ and ‘Detroit’ Deliver Oscar Season a Month Early
It’s not even August yet, but Christopher Nolan and Kathryn Bigelow have come to town bringing something we don’t usually get much of in July: Oscar season. Nolan’s “Dunkirk” and Bigelow’s “Detroit,” two big and bold movies sporting the names of the cities where they take place, are unquestionable awards contenders. And they’ve arrived more than a month before the usual rush of Oscar hopefuls comes in late August and early September at the Venice, Telluride and Toronto film festivals. They both have obstacles to overcome before they’ll be slam-dunk contenders, but these are »

‘Detroit’ Review: Kathryn Bigelow Powerfully Connects Historic Riots to Modern Discord
“Detroit” feels like a war film — which, in many ways, it is. During the summer of 1967, in Detroit and other major cities, discontent over racial injustice was escalating. Kathryn Bigelow’s masterful, immeasurably tense drama captures the volatility and importance of this incendiary time. The five-day uprising, which resulted in hundreds of injuries and 43 deaths, began with a police raid of an after-hours nightclub. Shortly thereafter, swaths of homes and businesses were burned down. It was often hard to distinguish between victim and perpetrator. This extraordinarily searing film begins with the July 1967 raid and powerfully depicts the early »

Film Review: Kathryn Bigelow’s ‘Detroit’
At their best, liberal film dramas that tackle the monumental issue of race in America have offered humanity and insight. It’s safe to say, though, that when Hollywood gives us a portrait of racial tragedy and injustice, it’s probably a tale of hope and uplift as well, a parable of moral darkness leading nobly into the light. But when you watch “Detroit,” Kathryn Bigelow’s sweeping, scalding drama about the Detroit riots that took place 50 years ago, in July 1967, you’re entering a zone where the usual feel-good pieties don’t apply. For this is no comforting drama of social protest. It’s closer to a hair-trigger historical nightmare, one you can’t tear yourself away from. Bigelow, working from a script by her regular collaborator Mark Boal (it’s their first film since “Zero Dark Thirty”), has created a turbulent, live-wire panorama of race in America that feels like it’s all unfolding in »

15 Best Virtual Reality Experiences So Far, From ‘Hello Mars’ to ‘Gnomes & Goblins’ (Photos)
Virtual Reality – the ability to strap on a headset and interact with a digital story in a lifelike way –is a medium that’s moving beyond the fringes of the tech world and starting to be embraced by world-renowned creators. Hollywood kingpins and inspired writers have been drawn to Vr for its unparalleled ability to connect viewers to stories in a way movies and television cannot. At its highest level, Vr experiences become an “empathy machine” – in the words of Within Vr CEO Chris Milk – allowing users to place themselves in the shoes of Batman in one »

'Detroit': Film Review
A particularly nasty historical instance of police brutality against African-Americans is wrenched back into the spotlight on its 50th anniversary in Detroit. Shot docudrama style with an emphasis on visceral force above all else, this third collaboration over a nine-year stretch between director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal, after The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, emerges, creatively, as the least of the trio; intense and physically powerful in the way it conveys its atrocious events, the film nonetheless remains short on complexity, as if it were enough simply to provoke and outrage the audience. It's a »

Why ‘Wonder Woman’ and ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Should Lead to More Female-Centered Films
How has the box office loved “Wonder Woman?” Let us count the ways.
First, its opening weekend, which earned over $100 million in North America thanks in part to nearly universal support from the critical community. But that was just the beginning. Patty Jenkins’ movie went on to become the top earning live-action film directed by a woman, and passed earnings of its fellow DC Comics movies “Suicide Squad” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” It has experienced cultural victories too — look to the swarms of Comic-Con fans in full Diana Prince getups.
This weekend, with $389 million from the domestic market, “Wonder Woman” can add a new accomplishment to its arsenal — the highest-grossing movie of the summer.
It’s also the second largest earner of 2017 behind another film centered on a female protagonist, “Beauty and the Beast” ($504 million domestic). As conversation surrounding gender equality and equity »
