In what can only be described as an incredibly smart career move, Game Of Thrones star Natalie Dormer is moving into the realm of generating her own material, as it’s been announced that her new movie project In Darkness is being packaged for sale at the American Film Market, by Xyz Films. With Dormer attached to the lead role, the film boasts the return to the big screen of writer-director Anthony Byrne (Short Order), who has been focusing on directing television drama in recent years.
With apparent, distant echoes of Terence Young’s 1967 film Wait Until Dark, In Darkness features a blind musician who finds herself dragged into the darker corners of London when she hears a brutal murder being committed in a neighbouring property. Though it initially appears that she is very much out of her depth, we soon discover that her pursuit of revenge has a greater »

Pim Razenberg on sexism and racism in Hollywood…
“Alright,” he sighted, the look on his face implying that a more serious tone was to follow. Squatting down next to the dead-still body of a man lying face-down in a puddle of mud, he paused a short moment to observe the seemingly beaten down individual’s shredded black uniform. “You’ve been beaten. You’ve been broken…” Without making a sound, the battered man slowly raised his head towards the speaker. “…You’ve got nothing left but what’s inside.” Small drops of rain started making splashes in the puddles surrounding the man’s broken body. The sound of the raindrops echoed through his ears. “I want you to reach inside. Reach into the depths of your soul. I want you to try to find that power within. That power that only we can feel. Others… they don’t understand. They will never understand. »

While it has hardly reached the heights of Iron Man 3, Guardians of the Galaxy or Captain America: The Winter Solider, Ant-Man has almost reached an important milestone in the McU, thanks in part to its big opening in China a few weeks back.
Still pulling in money from its domestic and International release, Ant-Man now sits at $179 million domestic and $314.8 million worldwide, giving it a total of $493.8 million. If its International screenings can do well, Ant-Man should comfortably pass the $500 million mark in the coming weeks, making it the ninth movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to do so.
The only other movies not to hit that mark are The Incredible Hulk, Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor.

Powers Boothe (Sin City, Deadwood, Nashville) has joined Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in a recurring role as Gideon Malick, a notorious man whose loyalties remain a mystery. Boothe previously appeared in Marvel's The Avengers as a member of the World Security Council. While Marvel wouldn't say much more about Gideon Malick, it's possible that he could actually be the next Red Skull. Here's what Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, had to say in a statement regarding the casting.
"Gideon is incredibly menacing and in him we have a character that even the stone-cold Grant Ward would fear. Only someone of Powers' caliber could deliver the type of ominous and powerful performance we needed."
In the aftermath of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s battle with Jiaying and the Inhumans, Director Coulson will search the world for more powered people and will face threats unlike the world has ever seen. »
With the recent annoucnement from Marvel Studios that the film company has secured three dates in 2020 to kick off its Phase 4 of its shared fiction universe. What do you think those films could be? Could the big three (Captain America, Iron Man and Thor) be returing for more solo adventures? Could Hulk finally get anouther solo movie? Or maybe even a solo-Black Widow outing? With Marvel Studios typically requiring three years between sequel installments, that rules out one of the 2020 dates going to Black Panther, Captain Marvel or Ant-Man and the Wasp. But it does allow just enough time to lapse for a Spider-Man sequel. Given the myriad of possibilities what do you hope to see in 2020? Make your voice heard in the poll below and then keep the conversation going in the comment section.
