Yesterday, we reported on a second possible new Ghostbusters film, that's been chatted about for a little while now. This is the one that Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo were involved with, and that screenwriter Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) had been working on. Furthermore, Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt had been linked with starring in the film.
In yesterday's update, Pearce revealed that he had come up with an idea for a Ghostbusters film, that would have a mixed gender team, and had a "gigantic bold idea" at the heart of it. Given his commitments to co-writing and co-directing upcoming Lego project The Billion Brick Race, Pearce also said that "I've only written a bible" for the new movie, and that he finished his work on the project »
Update: Original Ghostbusters director and continuing producer Ivan Reitman has now added his voice to that of Drew Pearce... in a slightly more forthright manner. "There has been a lot of excitement recently about what is happening with the Ghostbusters franchise," he tells Uproxx. "As the producer of the new Ghostbusters film, I feel the need to clarify. There is only one new Ghostbusters movie and that is the Paul Feig directed version coming next July, presently filming and going fantastically. The rest is just noise.”If you've been following the saga of the Ghostbusters rebootquel, you'll know that as well as the Paul Feig / Melissa McCarthy / Kristen Wiig incarnation, there's also been talk of another film, in a bigger-picture, Marvel-type connected universe stylee. Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt were both mentioned in connection with the project, although Tatum and Pratt have both said they're not doing it. Now, writer »
Strahovski will play Beth, a mysterious Pinkerton detective who’s a newcomer to the bloody town of Seward, Kansas, where the series is set.
The show, based on the books by author George Gilman, follows Josiah Hedges, better known as Edge (Martini), a man who’s out for vengeance after his younger brother is killed by a group of his former Union army comrades, lead by his nemesis, Merritt Harknett (Kwanten).
Alicja Bachleda (“The Girl Is in Trouble“) has also joined “Edge” in a recurring role. She will portray Pilar, a pregnant woman who is held prisoner by her husband and father-in-law and pleads with Edge (Martini) to help her escape.
Strahovski has been courted for a variety of pilots over the past few seasons. »

Ivan Reitman just issued an official statement via Eric Reich, who handles publicity for The Montecito Picture Company, Reitman's company. It's very pointed, and I think there's a rock solid reason for him to make the statement right now. Here it is, exactly as it was sent over. "There has been a lot of excitement recently about what is happening with the Ghostbusters franchise. As the producer of the new Ghostbusters film, I feel the need to clarify. There is only one new Ghostbusters movie and that is the Paul Feig directed version coming next July, presently filming and going fantastically. The rest is just noise." First, what I see here above anything else is a producer standing behind his director. He is right. Paul Feig is the only person making a "Ghostbusters" movie right now. The more I see from Feig's film, the more I'm excited to see how it all comes together. »

The duo will play rivals, with Martini in the role of Josiah Hedges, better known as Edge, who goes on a bloody mission of vengeance when his younger brother is killed by a group of his former Union army comrades, lead by his nemesis, Merritt Harknett (played by Kwanten). Edge is described as fearless, intimidating and “the meanest-looking man in any room he chooses to enter.”
Kwanten’s character is the son of a prominent senator who can seem charming until he is revealed for who he actually is — a psychotic sadist who delights in inflicting pain on others. He is pursuing Edge for an undisclosed reason.

From Fast & Furious to the Avengers, Terminator and Jurassic World, the trend for ridiculously over-complicated storylining is out of control this year. Is it time for a purge?
Forty-five minutes into the seventh Fast & Furious movie, Vin Diesel drives towards a huge precipice. The audience have only the faintest idea why he’s there. Ditto why they have paraglided their cars into Azerbaijan. Is it Azerbaijan? It’s probably to rescue someone … who was it again? Something to do with a surveillance gizmo means they need to find their nemesis Jason Statham, except Statham seems to find them whenever he wants, being the one about to push Diesel off the cliff, not the random mercenaries they’re nicking the device from. Only Kurt Russell – who’s watching everything from his covert-ops unit and chatting about craft ale – seems to understand what the hell is going on.

While we know Paul Feig is currently shooting a female-centric reboot of the "Ghostbusters" franchise, one of the more interesting reports to emerge during that film's pre-production phase was that Sony Pictures is planning to use the movie as the launchpad for a larger 'Ghostbusters Cinematic Universe' along the lines of a Marvel or DC superhero one.
The second effort in this Gcu would be more male-centric "Ghostbusters" tale, one which Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt were quickly rumored for. Both actors denied involvement, and the only thing that seemed concrete about it was that "Iron Man 3" and "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" co-writer Drew Pearce was involved in some capacity.
This week, Pearce clarified the matter regarding what's going on and says this second "Ghostbusters" reboot and overall larger plan is still happening. He tells MTV:
"I've finished my work on that in the last couple weeks. Obviously it’s top secret, »

Not long after the announcement of the reboot that shocked the world, an all female lead Ghostbusters directed by Bridesmaids director Paul Feig, it was announced that Sony Pictures was putting into production another spinoff. One that involved now mega stars Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum. While Feig was dissappointed and made it clear he had nothing to do with male lead Ghostbusters project, we were intrigued.
While Pratt has denied his involvment with the project, MTV has spoken to screen writer Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) who says that not only is the project deffinetly in the works, they have a script.
Pearce said "I've finished on that in the last couple of weeks. Obviously it's top secret, but there's a gigantic bold idea that i came up with, »

Michael Bay is putting his giant, transforming robots back in the toy box and tackling a somewhat hot button issue with 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, based on Mitchell Zuckoff’s recently released account of the infamous events of September 11th 2012, when six security operators fought to defend the American Embassy in Benghazi, Libya when it came under attack from terrorists. Once you get over the fact that Jim from The Office (John Krasinksi) makes for a convincing tough guy, and that Bay has given away his obligatory and quite literal American flag waving shot in the trailer, there’s no denying this finds the director firmly in his wheelhouse, bringing along a fine cast of reliably solid actors, including Krasinksi, James Badge Dale (The Lone Ranger, Iron Man 3), and Max Martini (Pacific Rim). Time will tell if this is just the usual Mayhem through the lens of real life events, »

Over the past three years, Marvel Studios have released a total of six movies (Warner Bros. on the other hand have had only one DC Comics adaptation in theaters). They're a varied bunch, and while some have divided opinions more than others - can we please move on from that Mandarin twist in Iron Man 3? - each and every one of them have definitely had their fair share of good points. "Phase 2" featured three big solo sequels, two risky adaptations, and the follow-up to the biggest superhero movie of all-time. All of them have succeeded though (some even far exceeded expectations), and as "Phase 3" nears with Captain America: Civil War on the horizon, there's simply not stopping Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige. Hell, they even have Spider-Man back now! The question now is, which of these movies was your favourite? Here's your chance to let us know! »
Last night, a Blu-ray trailer debuted for Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron, which revealed that the superhero blockbuster will debut on Digital HD September 8, with the Blu-ray and DVD release coming on October 2. Today that release date has been confirmed, with Marvel revealing the 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD artwork, along with 11 clips. Unfortunately, none of these scenes are from the extra 45 minutes of footage that wasn't seen in the theatrical cut. Hopefully we'll have some of that footage in the near future.

Good intentions wreak havoc when Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) unwittingly creates Ultron (James Spader), a terrifying A.I. monster who vows to achieve "world peace" via mass extinction.

“Maggie, we need to talk about your strawberry jam cravings.”
Director Henry Hobson knew that the visual effects would be an important part of the final look of the film, Maggie. For a film with a modest budget, the success of the 250 visual effects shots would be essential for creating the realism he was determined to achieve.
The visual effects in Maggie were largely created by British visual effects veterans Cinesite, the experts behind films including San Andreas, Iron Man 3, Edge of Tomorrow, Skyfall, World War Z and the highly successful Harry Potter series. Their team of 60 created many of the shots in just over two months.

Chris Cooper ranks the Marvel Cinematic Universe…
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU) is now at twelve films. It’s huge, with connecting story lines and teases stretching out for years to come. Ant-Man marks the end of Marvel’s ‘Phase 2Two’, with ‘Phase Three’ kicking off with Captain America: Civil War next year.
You know how the internet loves a list, and even more so one that can anger those with their pants on a bit too tight. So here we are, the Marvel films ranked from 12 to 1.
I’ve not spoken to one person who agrees completely, and I don’t expect any of you either! My wife is still giving me crap about were I’ve put Iron Man 3 two years later. So it’s a good exercise in kicking the hornets nest and seeing who disagrees most vehemently.
Obviously I’ve had more time some to »

But we would argue that Marvel should be pleased with the performance of its latest film and be prepared for more relatively modest successes further down the line.
The trouble with Ant-Man
It's small wonder that there has been some surprise over Ant-Man's opening weekend Us gross of $57,225,526 (£36,807,903). The Edward Norton-starring, largely forgotten 2008 film Incredible Hulk (which took $55,414,050 / £35,645,019) was Marvel Studios' first official release, and since then their profile and success has been consistently on the rise.
Ant-Man was a challenge for Marvel, and the company didn't make it easy on itself. It wasn't the first release on the more obscure end of its catalogue, but 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy overcame scepticism with what was probably »
