Hugo Weaving on playing the Red Skull and whether he’d be open to a return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe

24 September 2016 3:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in 2012, Hugo Weaving reflected on his role as the villainous Red Skull in Captain America: The First Avenger, suggesting that “it’s not something I would want to do again.” Now, in an interview with Yahoo!, the actor has been talking more about his experience in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, stating that he enjoyed portraying Cap’s nemesis – although he’s still unsure if he’d be up for a second outing.

“It was fun to play; I enjoyed the outrageousness of the German accent that I employed and I enjoyed the extraordinary mask and costume, even though it was unbelievably hot inside it,” said Weaving. “I enjoy mask work; I enjoy trying to animate masks and reveal certain things that the mask itself might not reveal. V for Vendetta was another example of that, but there was less animation within that mask versus the Red Skull.”

Hugo Weaving Reflects On Playing The Red Skull In Captain America: The First Avenger

23 September 2016 3:10 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The last we saw of the infamous Red Skull, he was killed (read: transported into the cosmos) by the Tesseract at the conclusion of Captain America: The First Avenger. While fans have speculated constantly that subsequent sequels (The Winter Soldier and Civil War) would find a secret means to bring the character back, the opportunity never materialized. It also didn't help that actor Hugo Weaving, who played the villain, expressed his firm reluctance to return. "...it’s not something I would want to do again. I’m glad I did it. I did sign up for a number of pictures and I suppose, contractually, I would be obliged to, if they forced me to, but they wouldn’t want to force someone to do it, if they didn’t want to." In a recent interview with Yahoo, Weaving reflected a little more positively on his time as Captain America's arch-nemesis, »

Captain America Actor Hugo Weaving Reflects On Red Skull Role

22 September 2016 6:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the exception of Loki (and Thanos, but he hasn’t really done a whole lot yet), no Marvel Cinematic Universe villain has appeared in more than one film. This is usually down to the character being killed off, or simply not making enough of an impact to be brought back, so, for the most part, fans haven’t kicked up too much of a fuss about it – aside from one baddie in particular, that is: Captain America: The First Avenger‘s The Red Skull.

Hugo Weaving’s sinister turn as Cap’s arch nemesis was (mostly) very well received by the Marvel faithful, so because he was given an ambiguous send-off in the closing moments of the movie, it was generally assumed that he’d return to make Steve Roger’s life miserable at some point down the line. Of course, that never happened, and Weaving was quoted as »

Hugo Weaving On What He Loved About Playing The Red Skull In Captain America: The First Avenger

22 September 2016 4:46 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Marvel isn't really known for bringing amazing villains to the big screen. The studio has taken a hero-centric approach with their films, and as such, they have a long list of forgettable baddies just about as long as their list of movies. One of the villains who fans really seem to connect with -- at least early on -- was that of the Red Skull, played by Hugo Weaving in Captain America: The First Avenger.

In the past, Weaving has said that he had no interest in returning to play Red Skull again, nor did he feel the villain had any real place in future movies. Though, despite how that may come across to some fans, that's not to say he never enjoyed himself while on the set of the first Cap flick.

Speaking with Yahoo!, Weaving said the following while reminiscing about playing Red Skull:

‘Captain America’ Conquers DVD, Blu-ray Disc Sales Charts

22 September 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Captain America: Civil War,” the latest Marvel Studios superhero blockbuster, shot straight to the top of both national home video sales charts upon its release last week.

The third “Captain America” film rode its $408.1 domestic theatrical gross to a No. 1 debut on both Npd VideoScan’s overall disc sales chart and dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart for the week ended Sept. 18.

The 13th entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe line is one of those rare sequels with a bigger theatrical take than either of its two predecessors. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier: (2014) earned $260 million, while the original 2011 “Captain America: The First Avenger” made $177 million.

The horror sequel “The Conjuring 2,” from Warner, debuted at a distant No. 2 on the overall disc sales chart, selling just 10% as many copies as “Captain America.”

FIFA 17 Review

22 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When it comes to annual iterations of sporting franchises, it can sometimes be difficult to see what’s changed from year to year, given that we hear the same claims time and again. We’re told that gameplay is more realistic, player movement is the best it’s ever been and – honestly, this time we mean it – the new version is the absolute best that’s ever been released. This is the reason why when a genuinely major new feature is announced in the pre-release build up, it’s often met with a confused silence. People know what to expect when a new sports game is revealed and when a publisher throws them a curveball in the way that EA did with their E3 announcement of The Journey, a story-driven addition to FIFA 17, it throws them off.

With all the hype, EA failed to communicate exactly what The Journey actually was. »

Warcraft Deleted Scene Hits the Pub with Singer Chesney Hawkes

21 September 2016 2:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the Blu-ray and DVD release of Warcraft less than one week away, a deleted scene has been released, which features a special musical cameo. U.K. singer Chesney Hawkes is seen briefly singing his hit song "The One and Only", which topped the U.K. singles charts and cracked the Billboard Top 10 in America. The musician is playing this tune when Callan (Burkeley Duffield) and Khadgar (Ben Schnetzer) enter a tavern.

Warcraft became a box office anomaly this summer, earning just $47.2 million domestically, but a whopping $386.3 million internationally for a worldwide tally of $433.5 million, from a $160 million budget. It has also become the highest-grossing video game adaptation of all time at the worldwide box office. This video game adaptation also shattered box office records in China, earning a whopping $46 million on its opening day in the country, taking down Avengers: Age of Ultron's record of $28 million last summer. »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Director Shares Aerial Stunt Set Video

18 September 2016 2:44 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since filming began on Spider-Man: Homecoming in Atlanta this past June, we've seen plenty of set photos and videos from director Jon Watts and star Tom Holland. Today we have a new video from Jon Watts, which doesn't feature Tom Holland or any other cast member, but it does tease that some aerial stunt work is happening on the set. The brief video shows a "To Set" sign pointing up revealing a helicopter above him.

Unfortunately, we don't see much else in this Instagram video, and the director wouldn't shed any light on what this helicopter was being used for. The helicopter did have a wire or a cable hanging down from it, which could mean that someone might be rappelling from the helicopter, but we don't know for sure. We don't know how much more filming is left on this new Spider-Man adventure, which has been set for »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Returns to an Iconic Avengers Location

16 September 2016 12:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since production started on Spider-Man: Homecoming, star Tom Holland has been sharing numerous videos and photos from the set, but his latest may have revealed a big spoiler. Yesterday, the actor shared a photo of himself, co-star Jacob Batalon and friend Harrison Osterfield at the Porsche headquarters in Atlanta. While it seems like a seemingly innocent photo, it may reveal that an iconic Avengers location will be revisited in Spider-Man: Homecoming. There will be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

Spider-Man: Homecoming has been shooting in Atlanta since late June, so, at first glance, there seems to be nothing out of the ordinary with Tom Holland, Jacob Batalon, who plays Ned Leeds in the movie, and Harrison Osterfield posing for a photo at the Porsche headquarters in Atlanta. The Instagram photo doesn't show any signs that this facility is being used for the production, but »

Can you sing the theme for “Captain America: The First Avenger?” What about “Thor?” Those are the types of questions that were asked a few random people at the beginning of the new video titled “The Marvel Symphonic Universe” posted by YouTube channel, Every Frame a Painting. It doesn’t come as a complete surprise when the people asked completely blanked and couldn’t think of the themes.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Video Shows Off Tom Holland's Breakdancing Skills

12 September 2016 11:16 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, the Russo Brothers sent out a photo featuring Josh Brolin in his motion-capture suit, going through rehearsals to play Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, which starts filming later this year. Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts decided to up the ante a bit by sending out a new video with his star Tom Holland, also in a full motion-capture suit, showing off his dance moves. We get to see what the dancing Spidey looks like in his full digital costume, along with Tom Holland busting a move on the stage, set to the song "Doing It Right" by Daft Punk.

The Instagram video also features one of Tom Holland's co-stars, Jacob Batalon, who plays Ned Leeds in Spider-Man: Homecoming. The actor isn't in motion-capture gear, and we don't know if Jacob Batalon is part of a scene that requires Spidey's mo-cap suit, or perhaps he's just there to watch Tom Holland dance. »

A Fine Pair And The Limits Of Claudia Love

11 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

This fall semester I started taking an Italian language class two evenings a week with my daughter, and Thursday night I was looking to decompress after our first big quiz. (Scores haven’t been revealed yet, but I think we did just fine.) So I started rummaging through my shelves and came across the Warner Archives DVD of Francesco Maselli’s A Fine Pair (1968), an ostensibly breezy romantic caper comedy which reteams Rock Hudson and Claudia Cardinale, a pairing their public was presumably clamoring for after their previous outing together in Blindfold (1965), a Universal programmer written and directed by Phillip Dunne, the screenwriter of, among many other notable movies, How Green Was My Valley. I’ve had a mad crush on Claudia ever since I first saw her in Circus World (1964) with John Wayne when I was but a youngster, and I always welcome the chance to visit movies of »
