Luc Besson has a great reason why people need to see Valerian

19 minutes ago | | See recent JoBlo news »

Sci-fi movies can be a tricky sell, because unless they're part of a franchise (Star Wars) or have a more down-to-earth tone (Interstellar), they can risk being expensive box office disasters rather than mega-hits. For instance, Avatar became the highest-grossing movie ever made without any franchise affiliation, while Disney’s John Carter is one of the most famous box office disasters in history....

Joss Whedon comments on Marvel, DC and Wonder Woman, would like to direct a Star Wars movie

51 minutes ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Joss Whedon continues to work on his script for his first post-Marvel project, the filmmaker has been chatting to Complex about the comic book movie genre, weighing in with his thoughts on Marvel and DC, as well as the upcoming Wonder Woman movie – a project he spent several years attached to back in the mid 2000s.

“I did not see Suicide Squad,” said Whedon. “I saw Batman v Superman. Everybody’s got their own method. I think Marvel has been more successful systematically. DC has been more cinematic—their stuff looks amazing—but I feel like Kevin Feige [President of Marvel Studios] is a really good storyteller. He really cares about coherence, and I feel like style never defeats substance at Marvel, but a little style creeps in. Ant-Man had some, Doctor Strange might be funky, and they are doing very fun things on TV. The Marvel-Netflix thing is working really well. DC »

Has Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’s Runtime Been Revealed?

2 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

We’re less than two months away from the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first of what Lucasfilm and Disney hope will be many, many standalone films. If you can believe it, there may very well be more riding on this one movie than there was on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Force Awakens had the legacy of decades of films behind it. Even if it didn’t quite live up to the fans’ vision, it still built off a beloved mythology, and was pretty much guaranteed to make money no matter what, thanks to the ten-year drought.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story comes after many fans have been sated, and as such, demand isn’t as high as it was this time last year. On top of that, Rogue One will be the first movie not to be a part of the main saga. »

Remember when Captain Planet did an episode on AIDS?

3 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the announcement of a new live-action film produced by Leonardo DiCaprio and their discussion on the Flickering Myth Podcast, Luke Owen looks back at the Captain Planet and the Planeteers episode “Formula for Hate”…

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, no subject was perhaps more taboo than HIV and AIDS. Though many had died previously, the disease became headline news when actor Rock Hudson died of AIDS in 1985 and it quickly became a hot topic of debate. Most media outlets were afraid to touch or broach the subject because public opinion swayed so much, mostly due to a lack of knowledge. Prolific comedian Eddie Murphy performed a routine about the fear of AIDS on his infamous Delirious show in 1983 where he says, “AIDS is scary because it kills motherfuckers… It petrifies me ‘cos girls be hanging out with them [homosexuals]. One night they could be in the club having fun with their gay-friend, »

Joss Whedon Says He’d Like To Direct A Star Wars Movie

13 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It sounds like the stuff of fanboy fantasy, but Avengers director Joss Whedon has admitted that he likes the idea of getting behind the camera to helm a movie set in the revitalized Star Wars universe.

Whedon was actually quizzed about this in the past, but always maintained that he’d rather put his own stamp on his projects, as opposed to having to conform to the rules laid out for an established franchise. But, it seems that after watching the recent trailer for Rogue One, he’s had a change of heart.

During an interview with, the director was asked if he’d ever consider going back to helm another big franchise picture, and specifically mentioned Star Wars as one of the properties that might interest him:
