With Patty Jenkins signing a bumper deal to return to the director’s chair and Warner Bros. setting a December 2019 release date for the film, it now seems we have word on when Wonder Woman 2 will enter production.
According to a listing on My Entertainment World (via Omega Underground), filming on the Wonder Woman sequel will begin in June 2018, with the production listing stating that “the sequel will be a pariod piece, with Princess Diana facing off against the Soviet Union during the 1980s”.
This would seem to confirm previous rumours, although it’s possible that the production listing has simply taken said rumours as fact until more information betcomes available.

Brains roasting on an open fire; zombies nipping at your nose; yuletide carols being sung by the undead. Anna and the Apocalypse is a horror comedy film from Scotland that is, as far as I know, the first ever zombie Christmas musical. Yes, indeed, you heard that right – a musical set at Christmas about a zombie apocalypse – and it's awesome. Well, it's not perfect, but it is damn good and the whole thing is just so much crazy fun, that I can't help but say I enjoyed this film from start to finish. It takes a little while to get going at the start, but once we get into it, Anna and the Apocalypse becomes an instant blood-splattered smash hit. It's worthy of being called Shaun of the Dead meets La La Land, with wonderful songs and kills galore. Anna and the Apocalypse is about a woman named Anna (of course), played by Ella Hunt, »

5 Reasons why you need to see Baby Driver5 Reasons why you need to see Baby DriverAdriana Floridia10/10/2017 10:46:00 AMDirector Edgar Wright is kind of a big deal. Although he may not be a household name yet, with his latest film, Baby Driver, surely even non-film aficionados will soon know who he is. Most famous for his "Cornetto" trilogy, comprising of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End, and all made with collaborators Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, these three films are something of cult classics. He also directed the Toronto-set Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, which many consider a masterpiece of stylistic filmmaking. Baby Driver follows in its footsteps as an equally stylistic crime film about Baby (Ansel Elgort), a young getaway driver who's paying a debt to a mob boss (Kevin Spacey). It's a story we've seen before, but it has never quite unfolded like it does in Baby Driver, »

I am a huge wimp when it comes to scary or gruesome films and TV shows. In particular, I hate anything involving blades on flesh (stabbings in particular). Obviously it's easy enough to avoid straight-up horror films, but the extent of my fear (which could well be very mild pungophobia) means a lot of other random stuff is off limits, too. For example, while everyone else was raving about 13 Reasons Why earlier this year, I was giving it a very wide berth because I knew I'd have a panic attack if I was made to watch one pivotal scene. My entire life I avoided the seemingly innocuous City of Angels because a friend told me that, in one scene, Nicolas Cage accidentally chops his finger off. Truth is, much of my phobia (if that's what it is) is in my head. I can cope with some fantasy violence and the »

In this week’s missile of a The New York Times story about the many alleged indiscretions of Harvey Weinstein, one of his past colleagues, former Miramax Los Angeles president Mark Gill, describes Weinstein’s professional climb from indie producer to Hollywood titan. “From the outside, it seemed golden — the Oscars, the success, the remarkable cultural impact.” Yet Gill said the persistent whispers that Weinstein was mistreating women were in fact “the biggest mess of all.”
While The Weinstein Co. co-founder publicly championed women’s rights, his accusers say that he was a hypocrite, secretly propositioning them for massages, kisses and more. One month after Weinstein distributed “The Hunting Ground,” a documentary about rapes on university campuses, he allegedly groped a college-aged woman in his office. Weinstein, 65, has a well-documented, on-the-record history of unflattering behavior, even against women (like in 2002, when he publicly berated director Julie Taymor at a screening of her film, »

“I was offered a film role at 19,” she wrote on Twitter. “Harvey Weinstein came on board and wanted me to screen-test in a bikini. I refused & lost the job.”
“Holy s—t,” replied British writer Jack Howard, “I knew the story but didn’t know who it was about.”
“I’m sure there are many more…” Hynes replied.

While Wonder Woman has received near universal praise, Warner Bros.’ female-led superhero blockbuster has attracted a handful of critics – most notably filmmaker James Cameron, who back in August criticised the film as a “step backwards for the portrayal of women in movies.
At the time, Wonder Woman helmer Patty Jenkins posted a measured response to Cameron’s remarks, and with the Avatar director subsequently stating this week that he stands by his comments, TV’s Wonder Woman Lynda Carter has now issued her own rather firm rebuttal via her Facebook page.
“To James Cameron -Stop dissing Ww: You poor soul. Perhaps you do not understand the character. I most certainly do. Like all women–we are more than the sum of our parts. Your thuggish jabs at a brilliant director, Patty Jenkins, are ill advised. This movie was spot on. Gal Gadot was great. I know, Mr. Cameron–because I »

Given that he’s just kicked off principal photography on his four Avatar sequels, you’d be forgiven for thinking that James Cameron would be solely focussed on his latest visit to the world of Pandora. However, it seems that’s not fully the case, as the filmmaker has been chatting to THR about his earlier criticisms of Warner Bros.’ blockbuster superhero movie Wonder Woman, where he’d described it as a “step backwards” for the portrayal of women in films.
“Yes, I’ll stand by that,” said Cameron. “I mean, she was Miss Israel, and she was wearing a kind of bustier costume that was very form-fitting. She’s absolutely drop-dead gorgeous. To me, that’s not breaking ground. They had Raquel Welch doing stuff like that in the ’60s. It was all in a context of talking about why Sarah Connor — what Linda Hamilton created in 1991 — was, if not ahead of its time, »

As a massive fan of happy-go-not-so-lucky genre hybrids, it should come as no shock that I abso-f$%king-lutely dig John McPhail’s Anna And The Apocalypse – his Scottish Christmas horror musical zombie invasion flick with a heart of solid gold (co-written by Ryan McHenry). High School Musical meets Footloose meets Shaun of the Dead, with all the yuletide yucks you could want. Each song so deliberate in message – warnings about social media hypnotism to escaping small-town mentalities – and each zombie interaction coated in appropriate amounts of bloodshed. Gremlins, Anna And The Apocolypse, Black Christmas – my new favorite X-Mas triple feature.
Ella Hunt stars as Anna, a high school teen who dreams of jet-setting before her university stint and the pursuit of a successful career. Father Tony (Mark Benton) disagrees with his daughter’s decision – as any protective parent would – but a freak event keeps Anna from fleeing her simple little community – the zombie apocalypse. »

George Chrysostomou on audiences gravitating towards genre subversions…
This month marks the release of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the sequel to the surprise hit Kingsman: The Secret Service and it is of course just as genre bending as its predecessor. The franchise clearly plays off of some of the silliness of the Bond movies, with their own versions of Q and M, high-tech if not slightly unbelievable gadgets, egotistical villains spouting monologues about grand world domination plans and of course, the classic suited look of the MI6 Spy, complete with beautiful car and in this case, umbrella! Of course, the original pokes fun at the James Bond movies, at one point asking for a martini that is “Gin, not vodka, obviously. Stirred for 10 seconds while glancing at an unopened bottle of vermouth.” Audiences were captivated by this fun take on the classic genre and with the sequel projected to do well at the box office, »

What can one do within the zombie sub-genre that hasn't already been done? Perhaps there isn't a lot of room for invention within zombie movies themselves. But what if you decided to go all La La Land about it and make a zombie musical? And just for good measure, have it take place on Christmas. That is what director John McPhail's Anna and the Apocalypse does and damned if it isn't purely delightful. It's official everyone; the first ever zombie Christmas musical is a blast.
In Blazing Griffen's movie Anna and the Apocalypse, Anna's life is typical enough. She is getting ready to leave school and wants to go exploring, but her dad just wants her to go to college and have a bright future. She has boy problems, and boys have problems with her. Though, all in all, she's just a normal high school girl living a relatively normal life. »
