Bobby Cannavale Is Worried Martin Scorsese Spends Too Much Time With Him, in Today's Least Relatable Complaint

6 February 2016 5:38 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Bobby Cannavale, late of Boardwalk Empire and soon to be on Vinyl, is living every film nerd's fever dream. He's working with Martin Scorsese and, to hear him tell it to Stephen Colbert, Scorsese just wants to chill out and talk. Plus he's finally friends with his idol Al Pacino, who sent Cannavale a diaper cake for his baby. That might sound like a weird, coded mob symbol, but apparently it's just a nice, thoughtful present. »

Vinyl: HBO's '70s Drama Rocks Hard (Though Its Soul Is a Work in Progress)

5 February 2016 4:24 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

You won’t find it on the show’s IMDb page, but cocaine plays such a major role in HBO’s new ’70s drama Vinyl (premiering Feb. 14 at 9/8c) that its name ought to be wedged into the credits somewhere between Ray Romano and Olivia Wilde.

Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) is directing the film, which sees Johansson in the title role as “a special-ops cyborg in a task force named Section 9 that deals in the most dangerous criminals and extremists.”

Ghost in the Shell is set for release on March 31st, 2017.

Lego set for Ghostbusters reboot reveals potential spoiler

5 February 2016 8:32 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning – there could be spoilers round these parts…

If you’ve been following superhero news over the last month, then you’ll have seen how Lego sets have potentially given away huge spoilers for both Captain America: Civil War and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Well, the newly released images for the tie-in Lego set for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot may have done the same thing.

Check out the images below:

The curious images are of Chris Hemsworth’s receptionist character, who appears to be called Kevin. The design of the minifigure suggests that Kevin will try and become a fellow Ghostbuster ala Louis Tully in 1989’s Ghostbusters II. However, it doesn’t look like it works out well for him as he becomes possessed… ala Louis Tully from 1984’s Ghostbusters.

What we’re saying is, Kevin is a combination of Louis and Janine.

Ghost In The Shell Adds Michael Pitt As The Laughing Man

5 February 2016 4:13 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Michael Pitt Will Play the Villain Opposite Scarlett Johansson in the Live-Action Ghost in the Shell Remake

4 February 2016 8:32 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

A good sci-fi movie is nothing without a good villain (just ask Eddie Redmayne), and luckily, Dreamworks' long-gestating Ghost in the Shell remake has found an actor eerie enough for the part. Michael Pitt, of Boardwalk Empire and, briefly, Hannibal, will play the villain in film version of the 1989 Japanese manga, which later became a critically acclaimed 1995 anime film. Scarlett Johansson is set to star as a cyborg in a special-ops team that targets cyberterrorism, while Pitt will play the Laughing Man, an expert hacker and cyberterrorist, described as "a bad guy filtered through the lens of a street artist." Technically, the Ghost in the Shell world features an even bigger bad, the mysterious Puppeteer or Puppet Master, but let's just table that discussion for a separate, more contentious web forum. Snow White and the Huntsman's Rupert Sanders is directing the film, which is set for a March 31, 2017 release, »
