'Captain America: Civil War' Friends Day Video Tears Tony and Steve Apart
You may have noticed that Facebook celebrated "Friends Day" yesterday, with the social media site putting together videos for each user showcasing some of their friend photos. The Captain America Facebook page even got in on the fun, creating a humorous video for Steve Rogers. The video showcases Cap's friends such as Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) and The Falcon. The video then cycles through images from several McU movies, but when it gets to a photo of both Cap and Tony Stark together, something very interesting happens. You'll have to watch the video below to find out.

8 Cruel Shots 'Hitman: Agent 47' Has Taken From Critics

8 Cruel Shots 'Hitman: Agent 47' Has Taken From Critics
"Hitman: Agent 47" might've seemed like a Hollywood no-brainer. Green-light a reboot to the modestly successful "Hitman" (2007), and replace Timothy Olyphant with "Homeland" up-and-coming actor Rupert Friend. The resulting mess, however, left critics feeling none too kind toward the late summer release. Here are some of the more ruthless assassination attempts aimed at the mishandled followup: Variety "What to call it, exactly? The 47th best action film of 2015? A feature-length Audi commercial, or a promo reel for the Singapore Tourism Board? The most unnecessary artistic contribution ever made by someone named Bach?" The Guardian "An idiotic mess with a bafflingly dense prologue, an endless final battle, lifeless performances and anticlimactic twists... there’s zero to recommend about this film regarding its story or dialogue." Screen Crush "Rooting for the title character of 'Hitman: Agent 47' is like...

It's a Linky Monday

Manuel here to offer you a news link roundup to kick off this week.

ComingSoon Is it really possible all press materials (save this offical photo) for Thomas Vinterberg's adaptation of Far From the Madding Crowd starring Carey Mulligan & Matthias Schoenaerts have gone unremarked here at Tfe? Let's fix that by staring at this gorgeous poster.

Marvel In case you missed it last week, Marvel offered some more casting news for their ever-expanding universe, including Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones in its upcoming Netflix series and Benedict Cumberbatch (officially!) as Doctor Strange in the eponymous film due November 2016.

SlashFilm In other franchise news, Roberto Orci will no longer be directing Star Trek 3 which I'm sure is good news for some other first time white male director looking to make his big break. I kid! But only sort of.

Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers talk Captain America's shield, naturally
(Cbr) - "Colbert Report" host Stephen Colbert appeared Tuesday on "Late Night with Seth Meyers," where the conversation quickly turned to the upcoming Marvel variant cover depicting him as the Falcon, and then to what he recalled as "one of my proudest moments": when he was bequeathed Captain America’s shield in 2007 following the death of Steve Rogers. "I got a letter — and the shield — I got a letter from Joe Quesada, who’s the head of Marvel Comics, he said, 'We’ve read Cap’s will, and in his will he said there’s only one person patriotic enough to wield the solid vibranium shield, and it was you, Stephen Colbert.' And my wife, who knows nothing from Marvel — she grew up playing with, you know, paper dolls, that sort of thing — she read the letter and wept with pride for me. And she said, 'I don

Edinburgh Film Review: ‘Not Another Happy Ending’

Edinburgh Film Review: ‘Not Another Happy Ending’
It’s not just the protagonist who’s short of inspiration in “Not Another Happy Ending,” a trifling comedy about writer’s block that aims for a blend of Richard Curtis-style cheeriness and arch literary satire, and winds up mostly drawing a blank. An unusual Glaswegian setting and an appealing cast, led by rising star Karen Gillan as a ditzy novelist whose reluctant crush on her editor stalls the follow-up to her bestselling debut, combine to wring some charm from a lean premise that inevitably disproves its title. Commercially, however, a happy ending for this year’s Edinburgh closer may prove elusive even in Blighty.

Scottish director John McKay’s 2000 feature debut, “Crush,” a women-talking-dirty comedy starring Andie MacDowell, flopped in theaters but paved the way for a reasonably successful TV career. (His 2005 P.G. Wodehouse adaptation “Piccadilly Jim,” meanwhile, went straight to DVD.) The influence of the smallscreen is

10 Things You Need to Know about 'The Avengers'

Two "Iron Man" movies, plus two interpretations of "The Hulk," plus "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger" have led up to one of the most anticipated -- and teased -- superhero epics in cinematic history: "The Avengers."

Director Joss Whedon has miraculously melded together the different mythologies of these characters for a team-up that gives each character his or her due, yet still feels cohesive: a story about defeating Thor's half-brother Loki before he obliterates the Earth, now that he's gained access to the unlimited power of the Cosmic Cube, or Tesseract.

Fans worried about the end result of all of these heroes mixed together on-screen can officially breathe easy because "The Avengers" delivers on all levels, has unexpected bits of humor and is one of the choicest comic-book movies of all time. If you liked some or all of the individual superhero films that led up to "The Avengers,

One Girl's Guide To 'The Avengers': What You Need To Know If You Know Nothing

[Editor's Note: As you can see, we've gotten a lot of heat for this article. It was meant to be a satirical piece, and obviously, it did not come across that way. There are plenty of female superhero fans, and our intent was not to make them feel marginalized. We've changed the headline to reflect the focus as we originally intended it (but did not communicate as well): One woman's perspective on the Avengers] As your boyfriend probably told you, "The Avengers" is hitting theaters this Friday. And you, dutiful girlfriend, are attending. But you hate action movies and you've never even read a comic book. (Of course, that's not a slight against the girls who actually do read comic books -- i.e. real fans, actual people with varied interests -- but for this, let's just go with the stock view of ladies, ladies!) Still, there's no need to fret. Beyond the fact that Joss Whedon's action film is Awesome (note the capital A), we've created a streamlined girl's guide to ward off any confusion or mid-movie what's-going-on whisperings. Including cocktail introductions a la "Bridget Jones's Diary" and boyfriend impressing tidbits, below is everything you need to know about "The Avengers."

Gillan Joins Not Another Happy Ending

Gillan Joins Not Another Happy Ending
Despite her star rising thanks to the role of Amy Pond in Doctor Who, it doesn’t seem like Karen Gillan has been able to crack the big screen just yet. While she was announced as part of the cast of David Baddiel’s Romeo and Brittney last year, that film seems mired in the development swamps. So perhaps she’ll have more luck with indie romance tale Not Another Happy Ending.No, it’s not set in a dodgy massage parlour. Ending actually follows a lovely but oddball writer (Gillan) who specialises in misery-packed yet hugely successful fiction. Unfortunately for her, that success has led to her becoming much happier, which in turn means she’s now suffering from a serious case of writer’s block.In steps her publisher (Black Death’s Emun Elliott), who decides to make her life miserable once more. In the process, of course,

New Pictures, Poster and Trailer for the Upcoming 'Footloose' Remake

Photo: Paramount Pictures Paramount decided today was the day they were going to reveal unveil all of their Footloose related goods and they are clearly targeting teens infatuated with young Hollywood as they have decided MTV's Hollywood Crush would be the place where they would debut the film's first trailer.

Directed by Craig Brewer (Hustle and#038; Flow), this is the helmer's first film since Black Snake Moan in 2006. He did direct an episode of "The Shield" as well as the pilot for "Terriers" but this is his first time back on the big screen in five years and it is certainly a departure from his first two films.

Footloose is a remake of the 1984 Kevin Bacon feature in which a family moves to a small midwestern town with strict moral beliefs, such as a ban on rock music and dancing. Ren MacCormack (played by newcomer Kenny Wormald) is transplanted from

Hugh Grant Takes The Lead In The Pirates! Band Of Misfits

An Aardman Production For Sony Pictures Animation Martin Freeman, David Tennant, Imelda Staunton, Jeremy Piven, Salma Hayek, Brian Blessed, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen Also On Board

Culver City, Calif. – Hugh Grant will voice the lead role alongside an all-star cast in The Pirates! Band Of Misfits, the new stop-motion, 3D, animated film produced by Aardman Animations for Sony Pictures Animation. The film, which will be distributed by Columbia Pictures, will be released March 30, 2012 in North America.

Hugh Grant, starring in his first animated role, is the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen), and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to

2010 Eisner Awards, Brian Bendis On 'Kick-Ass,' And Making Money In Comics In Today's Twitter Report

The 2010 Eisner Award nominations proved no less controversial than years past in the blogosphere and Twittersphere alike. While Geoff Johns revealed how he plans to celebrate his "Blackest Night" nod, both Tony Moore and Gail Simone named two titles they believe got overlooked.

Brian Michael Bendis, meanwhile, did not overlook "Kick-Ass" and had some rave reviews for Chloe Moretz as Hit Girl. Check out what you can look forward to after the jump where I have also condensed an extended point-counterpoint between Neal Adams and Mike Choi over how much money comic book artists should expect to make.

That last one's worth a trip to the Twitter mother-ship for full context, but the links posted are below in the Twitter Report for April 9th, 2010.
