Avengers: Infinity War Starts Production, First Set Photo Revealed

10 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, a report surfaced from the Sundance Film Festival that production starts today, Monday, January 23, on both Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled Avengers sequel, which are both shooting back-to-back. Earlier today, the Russo Brothers confirmed this report, by sharing the first photo from the set of Avengers: Infinity War, although it doesn't feature any members of the star-studded cast. Instead, this photo showcase a few of the large trailers that are used by the stars during production, and with a cast that could feature upwards of 67 characters, this may be just a small fraction of the trailers that are used on set.

The Russo Brothers took to Facebook this morning to share this image, which could very well be the first of many that surface from this production. Both movies are shooting on a rumored budget of $500 million, with the back-to-back shoot expected to last upwards of six months, »

13 hours ago | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Benedict Cumberbatch generated his fair share of sparks as the titular medic-turned-mystical-arts-master in 2016 smash Doctor Strange. Now, he’s channeling electricity of a different sort. The Oscar nominee is playing Thomas Edison in The Weinstein Co’s The Current War which is currently filming. Check out the first-look pic of Cumberbatch as the Wizard of Menlo Park, above.

Is Mantis Going To Be In Avengers: Infinity War?

22 January 2017 9:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Avengers: Infinity War is set to be absolutely massive, and we don’t just mean in terms of scale and scope. While it’ll definitely be large in both those regards, it’s also set to feature a shockingly big cast. Aside from the usual suspects, like Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye, the Hulk, Black Widow, etc., the film will also make room for the Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, potentially Pip the Troll and many, many more.

Now, we’re hearing that one more character may be added to the roster. It hasn’t been confirmed just yet, but Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 actress Pom Klementieff, who’s playing Mantis in James Gunn’s upcoming space-set sequel, has pretty much let the cat out of the bag with a recent photo she posted on Instagram.

22 January 2017 1:05 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel's Phase 3 is off to a great start with both Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange impressing fans in 2016. Not only were both movies received well by fans and critics, but they both did very well at the box office, which gives fans a lot of confidence as we move forward with the next wave of movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Those movies are all leading up to one massive event that has been teased since the very first Avengers movie back in 2012, and that is Avengers: Infinity War.

Benedict Cumberbatch Is Thomas Edison In New Photo From The Current War

22 January 2017 11:15 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Sherlock all but confirmed to be over, it’s time for Benedict Cumberbatch to push full steam ahead with his film career. The actor is quickly becoming one of the hottest talents in Hollywood and thanks to a stunning Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as Doctor Strange, he’s well on his way to becoming a household name, too. Next up for him are two big, but very different projects, though each of them revolve around a war of sorts.

Of course, we’re talking about Avengers: Infinity War and The Current War. It’s the latter which is now in production, and keeping the actor from shooting his scenes in Marvel’s upcoming blockbuster. Though Joe and Anthony Russo’s superhero extravaganza is set to head in front of cameras next week, Cumberbatch’s commitments to The Current War mean that the filmmakers will be using a stand-in for him, »

Is Cinema Really Dead If Scorsese Says It Is?

22 January 2017 10:52 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Henry Bevan on whether cinema is really dead…

The ‘cinema is dead’ narrative has gone around for a while. It is normally spouted by some blogger who wants to get across their “hot take”. But, sometimes, someone of note joins in, and as 2016 came to a close, a director trifecta chimed in — Martin Scorsese, Pedro Almodóvar and Ridley Scott all criticised the state of cinema.

Scorsese complained the modern moving image has lost meaning and the epics of old are no longer produced. Almodóvar echoed Scorsese, adding movies are now too synthetic. Scott simply stated: “Cinema is mainly pretty bad.”

These are three of the late-20th-century’s greatest filmmakers, so their opinions matter. But, we can dissect their opinions and comments.

It’s hard to talk about modern cinema without talking about superheroes. They’re the blockbuster kings and their impact on the film industry is undeniable. Scott’s »

Personal Ballot: Best Scores, Sounds, Songs...

22 January 2017 5:42 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Though my ears aren't as fine tuned as my eyes when it comes to the cinema, I take pleasure freely from every craft. The best films are the ones that try to engage all senses. (Well, not smell. They tried that with Smell-o-Vision and it didn't work out so well.) 

So here are my choices for Best Original Score, Best Sound Mixing and Editing, Best Original Song and a fifth category that's kind of "off-Oscar." The Film Bitch Awards have always had a Best Adapted / Combination / Song Score category for films where the original score is only part of the defining musical sensation and the rest comes from pre-existing material or songs that are woven into the sound mix. Films honored include in these various aural categories include The Handmaiden, Arrival, Moonlight, Lion, Jackie, La La Land, Sully, The Witch, Doctor Strange, Sing Street and more. Which movies did you love listening to this year? »

21 January 2017 8:30 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The first photo of Benedict Cumberbatch in The Current War is here -- and it's a little bit darker than we anticipated.

The 40-year-old actor stars as Thomas Edison in the upcoming Weinstein Company film, which focuses on the rivalry between Edison and George Westinghouse as the two race to "create a marketable and sustainable electricity system" in 19th century America.

Avengers: Infinity War And Its Sequel Begin Production Next Week

21 January 2017 4:23 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The folks over at Marvel Studios must be pretty busy right about now. Not only are they starting to put together The Inhumans for its debut later this year, but Black Panther also just entered production and now, we’re hearing that their most ambitious and biggest project to date, Avengers: Infinity War and its currently untitled sequel, are set to go before cameras next week.

If you thought Captain America: Civil War was packed to the rafters with superheroes, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Not only will Infinity War feature all of the usual suspects (Thor, the Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, etc.), but it’s also bringing in a whole host of other characters including the Guardians of the Galaxy, Nebula, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, possibly Pip the Troll and many, many more. Some may say it’s too much, and we’d probably agree, »

First look image of Benedict Cumberbatch as Thomas Edison in The Current War

21 January 2017 10:45 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

The streets of London and its surrounding areas are currently playing host to the filming of the Thomas Edison drama, The Current War, which details the race between Edison and George Westinghouse to deliver the first marketable and sustainable electricity system.

In the electric chair as Thomas Edison is Doctor Strange (and Sherlock) actor, Benedict Cumberbatch, the subject of the very first look image to emerge from the studio behind the film, The Weinstein Company. Cumberbatch and his very stiff upper lip, seems to embody the very image of what we expect from a gentleman in the late 1800’s, in his dapper clothing to his trademark solemn look.

Benedict Cumberbatch isn’t the only impressive name on the cast list, he is also joined by Michael Shannon (Nocturnal Animals) as George Westinghouse.  Katherine Waterston (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Tom Holland (Captain America: Civil War, »

Oscar Predix & Personal Ballots: The Moulin Rouge! Categories...

20 January 2017 8:51 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

If you've read The Film Experience for any length of time beyond let's say, a week, you'll know that we live for eye candy. Three of the cinematic arts that most regularly provide this are, outside of beautiful movie stars in the acting categories, Production Design and Costume Design i.e. the Moulin Rouge! categories. We love these categories so much we have two weekly series for them, Daniel Walber's "The Furniture" and my own forthcoming costume series "Three Fittings".

Anyway, it's time to make our final predictions for Oscar but it's also time to get those Film Bitch Awards (my own long running awards jamboree) going. So herewith my personal ballot and, putting the pundit hat on, my Oscar predictions. These two modes should not be confused... so apologies for discussing them simultaneously. This is what happens when you procrastinate!

Inhumans TV Show Gets a Director, Vin Diesel Still Wants a Movie

20 January 2017 2:46 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel Studios initially announced their plans for Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe back in 2014. For the most part, they have stuck to that plan but there has been some shifting around, like the inclusion of Spider-Man: Homecoming, for example. Recently, it was announced that Inhumans was going to be made into a TV show, meaning that the movie, which was going to be one of the closing events in Phase 3, is all but scrapped. The Inhumans TV show, on the other hand, is moving full-steam ahead and they now have a director for the first two episodes.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Roel Reine will be tackling the first two episodes of The Inhumans, which are going to be shot in IMAX and will be screened in theaters over Labor Day weekend upon their debut. Roel Reine is probably best known for his movies The Delivery and Admiral, »

Avengers: Infinity War will visit “many, many, many new worlds”

20 January 2017 11:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We know by the sheer number of characters set to be involved that Avengers: Infinity War is going to be pretty epic in scope, but it seems that isn’t confined to just the cast, as production designer Charles Wood has revealed that we’ll be delving deep into the Marvel universe – literally – as we explore “many, many, many new worlds.”

“Any time you turn that page on this script, you’re kind of staggered, blown away, terrified by what’s in front of you,” Wood tells Comic Book. “I think rather like Doctor Strange, you’ll find this film, it’s not regurgatative. What I’m trying to say, is, there are many, many, many new worlds to see in this film. Any time you turn that page on this script, you’re kind of staggered, blown away, terrified by what’s in front of you.”
