It didn’t show up in the Cannes line-up as some predicted, but we won’t have to wait too long for Terrence Malick’s long-gestating Voyage of Time. The Ennio Morricone-scored project — which is technically two films, one a more educational 40-minute IMAX version narrated by Brad Pitt and the other a feature-length cut narrated by Cate Blanchett — is described as “a celebration of the earth – from the birth of the universe to its final collapse.”
Finally, we have our first official confirmation on when it will arrive. Buried deep in an IMAX press release about its first quarter 2016 earnings, they reveal that an October 7th, 2016 release is set for the IMAX version, which now makes a Tiff and/or Venice premiere likely. With only IMAX reporting now, there isn’t an update regarding the feature-length version, but hopefully it finds distribution around the same time.

In just six short days, most fans will have quickly devoured Captain America: Civil War, and will be queuing up for second helpings. But right now, the wait seems excruciating. Marvel and Disney are helping this anxious bit of anticipation along with yet another sneak peek at the action. This time, they have released a featurette on Twitter that delves into the intense relationship between Bucky Barnes and his once and future best friend Steve Rogers.
In this behind-the-scenes look at how Captain America and The Winter Soldier mend their broken fences, star Sebastian Stan gives an eagle's eye view into the action and drama that is set to play out in theaters across America this Friday. And one thing becomes very clear. Cap is Bucky's only means of salvation. Says the actor.
"Bucky Barnes is learning about what a killing machine he's been and how much damage he's done across the years. »
Marvel Studios will once again kick off the summer movie season this year with another one of their explosive sequels, Captain America: Civil War, which also marks the beginning of Marvel Phase 3 when it hits theaters on May 6. With less thana week left until this superhero adventure breaks bank at the box office, Marvel has debuted over 100 new photos, giving us a fresh look at the all-new Avengers line-up that includes Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Vision & Scarlet Witch and The Flacon. Unlike other McU movies, these heroes' biggest enemy will be each other they take sides in an impossible war.
Steve Rogers leads a newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. The action is set in the aftermath of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Following another incident involving the Avengers that results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by »
Was there ever any doubt that Captain America: Civil War would be a gargantuan hit? It will likely be one of the top five movies of 2016, if not the number one money earner. But just how high will it fly is still anybody's guess. And at this point, it looks likely that it won't break any substantial summer box office records. The first Marvel Phase 3 movie is pacing last year's Avenger's Age of Ultron, which isn't a bad thing at all. Though, it probably won't reach the heights of Disney's 2015 blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
While we won't get to see Team Cap and Team Iron Man tussle on American shores until this Friday, the movie opened early in several international territories this past week, including an additional eight markets yesterday. The movie is now playing in 38 territories across the globe, and is #1 in all of them. It is »

Hello and welcome to The Week in Captain America: Civil War, or at least it feels like it! As Marvel’s latest offering kicked off Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ve posted a tonne of coverage of the film this week, including a few Flickering Myth exclusives!

With spoilers, we look at the big questions left dangling by Captain America: Civil War...
This article contains spoilers.
Captain America: Civil War is another triumph for Marvel Studios – but like any film, you’ll come out of it with questions that they maybe had to skim over, didn’t have time to answer, or didn’t think needed answering. And we’re here to try and fill in the gaps.
Spoilers, obviously - so if you haven’t seen the film, stop here.
What are the Black Panther’s powers, and how did he get them?
The latter isn’t discussed in the film as far as we could see, but that’s probably because they’re saving it for the solo outing. In the comics, the Black Panther – whoever that may be at the time - receives their powers from eating a special heart-shaped herb which only grows in Wakanda. »
Captain America: Civil War is finally within reach and if the international box office earnings and early reviews are anything to go by, this movie is shaping up to be another huge success for Marvel. The Winter Soldier sequel features almost every Avenger so far, but it also has the massive job of introducing two major players for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Spider-Man and Black Panther. While most people are familiar with Spider-Man, less know about Blank Panther and what his deal is. Siding with Team Iron Man, the African King is played by Chadwick Boseman, who will be playing the character in his own solo movie in 2018. Appearing as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live – a show where major Marvel news is usually dropped, such as the first Doctor Strange trailer – Chadwick Boseman was able to talk about how he approached the character »
Editor's note: Hollywood whitewashing is not a new problem, but it's seen a spike with recent reports that Tilda Swinton would play an Asian character in Marvel's upcoming "Doctor Strange" (the studio now claims she's supposed to be Celtic); and with the first photos of Scarlett Johansson playing the lead character in the live-action adaptation of the manga series "The Ghost in the Shell." For more perspective on the cultural and industrial factors fueling this issue, we set up an email exchange between three Asian-American members of the entertainment community: Mynette Louie, president of Gamechanger Films ("The Invitation," "Lovesong," "Land Ho!"), Andrew Ahn, who made his directorial debut with "Spa Night" at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival; and Jeff Yang, a featured CNN contributor and author of "I Am Jackie Chan: My Life in Action," editor of the graphic novel anthologies "Secret »

Captain America: Civil War, 2016.
Starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Jeremy Renner, William Hurt, Emily VanCamp, Tom Holland, Martin Freeman, Chadwick Boseman, Daniel Brühl, Paul Bettany and Frank Grillo.
The Avengers become divided over the issue of whether there should be a set of rules allowing the governments of the world to police them.
So, is Civil War really Marvel’s best film to date, as some publications (including Empire magazine) have claimed? Well, in my opinion Avengers Assemble still holds that crown, but Civil War is definitely amongst their top five. It’s loosely based on the Mark Millar comic of the same name, but only shares basic elements of the plot; the Avengers (apart from Hulk and Thor; both Awol) are told that due to the enormous »

Mads Mikkelsen, who we revealed would be heading for Cannes this year to take a place on the jury, has revealed his role in perhaps one of the year’s biggest movies, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, to Sky News.
Lucasfilm haven’t previously disclosed the role in which he is playing in the film, which also stars Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso, the female lead.
Speaking with the news channel, the Danish actor said: “Felicity Jones is playing this lovely young strong woman. I play her father, and…that’s too much, I’m sorry”. You can see the interview below.

The mystery of Tony's real parents reveals some truths behind the history of the Marvel Universe that have been kept hidden for decades. Can Tony unravel the mystery before deadly history repeats itself?
More details are revealed about Tony’s relationship with Cassandra and how it might be the cause for all his current relationship problems. Also it’s hinted at in current times, Cassandra might know something about Tony’s real parents. A bit of a “filler” issue, but still some excellent art from Alex Maleev.

Marvel has a massive job on its hands in lieu of its Phase 3-ender, the two-part Avengers: Infinity War. Ever since the intergalactic conflict was first announced, rumors have circled as to which members of the comic book company’s legions of superheroes would partake in the action.
According to the Russo Brothers, the number stands at roughly 67 entrants heading into the Infinity fray. More so, how will Kevin Feige and crew manage to bring together all these diverse heroes and teams who are scattered throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Clearly, The Avengers will play a part in the conflict (after resolving their Civil War, of course), but what about Netflix’s Defenders, Phil Coulson and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and, of course, Agent Carter (and that’s not even taking into account Cloak and Dagger and Most Wanted).

Summer is just around the corner, which means it's getting closer and closer to the annual extravaganza that is San Diego Comic Con, scheduled to run from Wednesday, July 20 (Preview Night) to Sunday, July 24. We won't know the official schedule until early July, but today a new report has surfaced claiming that one of Hollywood's biggest studios, 20th Century Fox, is skipping Sdcc's biggest venue, Hall H. This means that fans won't get an early sneak peek at the studio's X-Men franchise plans, which include the highly-anticipated Wolverine 3 (March 3, 2017). Nor will the hugely anticipated video game adaptation Assassin's Creed (December 21, 2016) have a presence on the Hall H stage. But not all is lost. The studio will still be represented at the Con in other areas.
Today's report from The Wrap claims that 20th Century Fox will not show any of their movies in Hall H, due to piracy concerns. Last year, »
The identities of several of the key Rogue One: A Star Wars Story players still remain a mystery, but we can scratch one off the list. Mads Mikkelsen was quizzed about his upcoming roles in both Doctor Strange and Rogue One during an interview with Sky News, and seemingly inadvertently revealed a very interesting and important detail about his character in the latter. Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen reveals that he's playing the father of the main character in Star Wars film Rogue One https://t.co/6dagUqZB2j — Sky News (@SkyNews) April 28, 2016 “I read the script. It was very beautiful and Felicity’s playing this lovely, strong woman [and] I play her father, and… uhh, that’s too much, I’m sorry!” You should be sorry Mads, you've just launched a thousand think pieces. Seriously though, that is a pretty big reveal when you think about it. The Rogue One trailer »
Trying to get news about upcoming Star Wars films is like trying to get blood from a stone. But then you’re just sitting there, minding your own business, and Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal, Doctor Strange) pops onto British news channel Sky News and drops a bomb about who he plays in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

2016 is essentially the Year of the superhero movie.
We had been anticipating the arrival of 2016 for years, with knowledge of such grandiose sequels as Captain America: Civil War, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and X-Men: Apocalypse on their way, as well as brand new superheroes like Deadpool and Doctor Strange having their turn in the spotlight.
In honour of Superhero Day, we're going to bask in the glory of the stunning films we've already seen earlier this year, and the epic ones that are on their way in 2016. There's a reason why the superhero film is here to stay.

Deadpool was a smash hit when it was released in theatres in February of this year. Quickly becoming the highest grossing R-Rated film of all time, no one could have foreseen the success Deadpool would endure. The character proved to »

"Marvel has a very strong record of diversity in its casting of films", it says in response to Doctor Strange casting concerns...
The positive response to the first trailer for Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange movie, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, was tempered a little by questions being asked about the treatment of The Ancient One.
The character is played by Tilda Swinton in the new movie, and in a statement to Mashable, the studio responded to accusations that of “whitewashing”.
The statement in its entirety reads:
“Marvel has a very strong record of diversity in its casting of films and regularly departs from stereotypes and source material to bring its McU to life. The Ancient One is a title that is not exclusively held by any one character, but rather a moniker passed down through time, and in this particular film the embodiment is Celtic. We are very »
Every time a new Marvel movie is released, some fans look forward to the inevitable post-credit scenes more than the movie itself. Most times, these extra scenes help set up a future McU movie, like the scene in Ant-Man that links up with next week's Captain America: Civil War, hitting theaters in just nine short days on May 6. While Captain America: Civil War has already screened for members of the press, the movie has also opened in a number of international markets, with new reports coming in about a post-credit scene that wasn't shown to journalists in the U.S. or the U.K. There will be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
This new report comes from Comic Book Movie, which offers a description of the end-credits scene that was shown in international markets such as France and Korea. The scene in question involves the »
