Power Rangers Reboot Adds Elizabeth Banks As Rita Repulsa

2 February 2016 9:33 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In a fairly surprising bit of casting, THR has revealed that Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games movies) will play a villain in director Dean Israelite’s new big-screen take on the ’90s kids’ TV series, Power Rangers.

According to the trade, she’ll be playing one of the classic series baddies known as Rita Repulsa, who is described as “an alien who has designs on the planet.” This will be Banks’ first villainous role (unless you count her initially ambiguous turn as Effie Trinket in The Hunger Games), as the actress is generally known for her more comedic characters – although, it does remain to be seen how seriously this movie winds up taking itself.

Banks will join a cast of newcomers that includes Rj Cyler, Becky G, Ludy Lin, Naomi Scott and Dacre Montgomery, who will star as the team of extra terrestrial bashing teens themselves.

'Power Rangers' Movie Gets Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa

2 February 2016 9:20 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in June, a report surfaced that Lionsgate's Power Rangers will feature one of the iconic villains from the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers TV series, Rita Repulsa. While that report was never confirmed by the studio, it was backed up by another report from October, which claimed that this project was not, in fact, a reboot, but follows the continuity from the latest TV series, Power Rangers: Dino Charge. Today, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Elizabeth Banks has signed on to play Rita Repulsa in this new adventure.

The actress joins Naomi Scott (Pink Ranger), Dacre Montgomery (Red Ranger), Ludi Lin (Black Ranger), Rj Cyler (Blue Ranger) and Becky G. (Yellow Ranger). The site describes Rita Repulsa as an alien who "has designs" on planet Earth. Our report from October claimed that Scorpina will actually be the primary villain, one of Rita Repulsa's underlings. That report was never confirmed though, »

Elizabeth Banks To Play The Villainous 'Rita Repulsa' In Big Screen Power Rangers Reboot

2 February 2016 8:20 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Power Rangers reboot has so far assembled a cast of relative unknowns (Rj Cyler, Becky G, Ludy Lin, Naomi Scott, and Dacre Montgomery) to play the iconic team of heroes, but The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games) has signed up to play the lead villain! That will be classic baddie Rita Repulsa, "an alien witch who has designs on the planet." Not much is known about the plot right now, but this character's involvement certainly gives us a rough idea of what we should expect and the trade mentions that the movie features the formation of, "a colorful team who must stop the world from being conquered." Dean Israelite (Project Almanac) is directing from a script by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (Thor).  Tell us, what do you guys think of his casting addition to Power Rangers?    Big news! @ElizabethBanks joins the cast of @PowerRangersMovie as the villainous #RitaRepulsa. »

How The People v. O.J. Simpson, 2016’s Most Anticipated Show Yet, Came Together

2 February 2016 6:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It was 2013, and FX and its longtime creative partner, Ryan Murphy, were mulling an American Horror Story spinoff that would focus on true crime. But dramatizing true events can be tricky, and they were having difficulty landing on the right story. Months rolled by, and Murphy’s The Normal Heart came and went on HBO; Murphy entered a “postpartum period,” keen to work on another challenging project. He tabled his idea of a true-crime series and asked his agents to send him any solid script that was not getting picked up. One of them was in the hands of producers Brad Simpson (World War Z) and Nina Jacobson (The Hunger Games), who had bought the rights to journalist Jeffrey Toobin’s best-selling book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson, and hired screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, co-writers of The People v. Larry Flynt, to adapt »

2016 Forecast as Record Year for Foreign Shoots in France

1 February 2016 10:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — In the wake of France’s decision to increase the rate on its Tax Rebate for International Productions (Trip) rebate scheme from 20% to 30%, effective from the start of this year, a series of high-profile foreign productions have booked shoots in Gaul in 2016, including Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk,” lensing in Northern France in May, Neil Jordan’s 10-part Cote d’Azur-based TV crime series “Riviera,” and a yet undisclosed major U.S. TV Series expected to start production in the Fall.

Other confirmed shoots for 2016 include Clay Jeter’s sci-fi pic “Io.”

France’s domestic tax rebate scheme, for official French productions, has also increased from 20% to 30%.

“The increase to 30% is a huge change,” says line producer John Bernard of Peninsula Film. “It’s been further amplified by the rising value of the dollar. It’s been absolutely essential.”

“30% is a wonderful new development,” says line producer Raphael Benoliel, of Firstep. »

Tom Hanks and Johnny Depp Are America's Favorite Movie Stars

29 January 2016 5:27 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

At the end of every year, The Harris Poll conducts a nationwide survey of American moviegoers to find out which movie stars are the most beloved. This year, they polled 2,252 U.S. adults between December 9 and December 14 to determine America's Favorite Movie Star, which was won by Bridge of Spies star Tom Hanks. This is the fifth time he has taken the top spot, following wins in 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2013. He also jumped up four spots from last year, when he took the #5 spot.

This year's runner-up was Black Mass star Johnny Depp, who rose from the fourth spot last year. Despite winning critical acclaim for both of their movies this year, neither Tom Hanks nor Johnny Depp scored Oscar nominations for their performances. Rounding out the top 5 this year are Denzel Washington who topped the list last year but didn't have a movie released in 2015, the late great John Wayne and Han Solo himself, »

Sundance: Jena Malone on ‘Lovesong,’ Women in Hollywood and Leaving ‘The Hunger Games’

29 January 2016 12:46 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Twelve years after “Saved,” Jena Malone returned to the Sundance Film Festival with “Lovesong.” The in-competition drama, which premiered on Monday and is directed by So Yong Kim, tells the story of two college friends (Malone and Riley Keough) who reunite over two specific time periods. Malone talked to Variety about making the film, wrapping her “Hunger Games” character and rumors that she might be joining “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” as Robin.

Was “Saved” the last time you were at Sundance?

I was thinking about “Saved” the other day. I was thinking about how many films I’ve been pregnant in [Malone is pregnant in real life], and how inaccurate it was. I was like, “Wow — I didn’t know that.”

How did you come across the script for “Lovesong”?

So and I have been friends for a while. I worked on her film “For Ellen.” That’s how it came to me. My »

Martha Thomases: Comic Books For Everyone!

29 January 2016 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

There was a disturbance in the Force this weekend as DC announced that they were, once again, relaunching their entire line … sort of.

On the one hand, I’m sick of this. It might work as a publicity stunt for a few months, but, in and of itself it doesn’t necessarily attract new readers. On the other hand, what else can they do?

Just a few days before, my pal Val D’Orazio posted some interesting opinions about the comic book market. She looks at distribution and promotion and demographics and all the other elements that have been part of our discussions about comics since at least the 1970s.

In case you’re new to this, let me try to sum it up (which will, by necessity, over-simplify things). The emergence of the direct market allowed comics to go from a mass medium to a more sharply focused (and therefore, »
