‘Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool’ Trailer: Annette Bening Enters the Race for Her First Oscar

‘Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool’ Trailer: Annette Bening Enters the Race for Her First Oscar
It’s hard to believe that Annette Bening has never won an Oscar. The 59-year-old actress has been nominated four times and got incredibly close to landing her fifth nomination last year for her wonderful lead role in Mike Mills’ “20th Century Women.” The Academy snubbed her, but she’s not wasting any time out of the awards season. Bening is back with “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool.”

“Liverpool” is based on the memoir by British actor Peter Turner and recounts his romance with the legendary and eccentric Hollywood actress Gloria Grahame during the last years of her life. Grahame won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in 1952’s “The Bad and the Beautiful” and appeared in films alongside Humphrey Bogart, Robert Mitchum, and Kirk Douglas.

Bening takes on the role of Grahame, while Jamie Bell plays Turner. The supporting cast includes Julie Walters and Vanessa Redgrave.

Captain Phillips writer to polish script for James Cameron's Terminator

Following the release of Terminator 2: Judgement Day, James Cameron had little involvement with the films which followed, and after a string of sequels which failed to live up to expectations, the man who created it all will return to (hopefully) get the franchise back on track. Set to be directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool), the upcoming Terminator is expected to be the first of a new trilogy, will serve to... Read More...

Which Old School X-Men Character Is Deadpool 2 Introducing?

Which Old School X-Men Character Is Deadpool 2 Introducing?
20th Century Fox's Deadpool 2 is shaping up to be one of 2018's most-anticipated movies, with Ryan Reynolds returning as the Merc With the Mouth. One of the most intriguing new additions to the cast is Hunt For the Wilderpeople breakout star Julian Dennison. The young actor was announced through a social media photo where the actor was seen getting a piggy-back ride from the Merc With the Mouth, with both actors mocking a Star Wars: The Last Jedi photo where Daisy Ridley was getting a piggy-back ride from Mark Hamill. Julian Dennison's casting was announced back in late June, but his character was never confirmed, although a new report has seemingly revealed who he's playing.

The original Deadpool movie introduced one of the more obscure X-Men characters, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, with Brianna Hildenbrand delivering a breakthrough performance that ensured the character's return in the sequel. It seems that this

James Franco Eyes ‘X-Men’ Spinoff ‘Multiple Man’

James Franco Eyes ‘X-Men’ Spinoff ‘Multiple Man’
Fox is in negotiations with James Franco to star in a movie about the Marvel Comics character Multiple Man.

The studio is also in talks with “Wonder Woman” writer Allan Heinberg to pen the script. It’s negotiating with Simon Kinberg and his Genre Films to produce with Franco through his Ramona Films with brother Dave Franco and Vince Jolivette.

Multiple Man, aka Jamie Madrox, is a character in the X-Men universe who received cloning powers at birth. In the comics, Jamie’s father, who works at the Los Alamos Nuclear Research Center, moves his family to a farm, where his son is fitted with a special suit — designed by X-Men leader Professor X — to control his powers. The suit malfunctions, causing Multiple Man to go crazy.

Jeremy Kramer will oversee the movie for Fox, if the deals go through. Franco and Kinberg have been developing Fox’s “The Hardy Men” as a potential starring vehicle for both

New X-Men spin-off starring James Franco in development

John Saavedra Nov 17, 2017

James Franco will star as Multiple Man in a new X-Men solo film!

James Franco is set to play Jamie Madrox aka Multiple Man in a new standalone X-Men movie. The film is being written by Wonder Woman screenwriter Allan Heinberg and produced by Simon Kinberg, who is currently also directing X-Men: Dark Phoenix. No release date has been set for this film, but we assume it's still a ways away as its currently in the early stages of development. 

The character choice is interesting as he's not exactly as popular of a name as, say, the usual mutants. In case you don't know, he's indeed named Multiple Man because he can instantly create duplicates of himself. While Jamie was originally a minor character, his story was better established in Peter David's X-Factor run from the 1990s, which incorporated many lesser known heroes from the larger X-Men mythos.

James Franco To Play Multiple Man for Fox

  • Cinelinx
Fox may have been in talks to sell to Disney at one point, but now that that’s not going through, it is time to dig down deep, and bring out the big guns of the Mutant Universe, Multiple Man….

We’ve seen him before. Eric Dane portrayed Jaimie Madrox in X-Men 3: The Last Stand, where he was a member of the Brotherhood after being broken out of police custody. It wasn’t a big part, but he did stand out a little bit. Now Fox is looking to bring back Multiple Man in his own film

In an Exclusive obtained by Deadline Fox is in the process of creating a film around the mutant whose powers allow him to create multiple copies of himself. The report specifies that Fox is in talk with James Franco to take over the role, with Simon Kinberg set to produce the film,

James Franco's Multiple Man Will Be the Next X-Men Spin-Off Movie

  • MovieWeb
James Franco's Multiple Man Will Be the Next X-Men Spin-Off Movie
It's beginning to look like Multiple Man will be the next X-Men spin-off movie and James Franco will star in the project. Deadline reports that 20th Century Fox is moving ahead with Multiple Man and several sources say that Franco's name is attached and that the new movie will join the Fox roster along with Deadpool 2, New Mutants, Gambit, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix. The news comes somewhat out of left field, but 20th Century Fox seems to be striking while the iron is hot and wasting no time getting projects put into development.

Deadline is reporting that Fox is developing the Multiple Man movie as a starring vehicle for James Franco. Alongside the Xcu architect Simon Kinberg, Franco will produce Multiple Man through his Ramona Films, which is the same company behind the actor/director's The Disaster Artist. The movie came out of another collaboration between Franco and Kinberg, The Hardy Men,

Fox Enlists Wonder Woman Scribe For Multiple Man Movie, James Franco To Star

In the latest round of throwing whatever you can at a wall and seeing what’ll stick, Fox is continuing to expand its ever-broadening X-Men film franchise with an installment that’ll no doubt come as a shock to many. Believe it or not, the latest mutant they intend shining the spotlight on is none other than Multiple Man.

Seriously.

Having been previously played by “McSteamy” himself, Eric Dane, back in 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand, the self-replicating mutant known to comic book readers as Jamie Madrox will now instead be played by James Franco, who had previously familiarized himself with the superhero film genre via Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. Now, this may cause confusion for some, but do remember that recasting various characters has been on the table ever since the timeline was rewritten thanks to 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.

New ‘Deadpool 2’ Teaser Channels Bob Ross

20th Century Fox has released the first footage from ‘Deadpool 2‘. Initially, this trailer feels like another one of the brilliant viral videos that made the marketing campaign for the first ‘Deadpool‘ so special. In this first “Wet on Wet” teaser trailer, we see Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) parodying Bob Ross‘ ‘The Joy of Painting‘ – to great comedic effect. It’s at about the 1:30 mark that the trailer shows us our first glimpses of actual footage from the sequel and I have to say that, although brief, the new footage from ‘Deadpool 2‘ looks quite amazing.

It’s interesting, because this video feels like a very unique hybrid of trailer and viral video. I honestly hope that this gets the chance to actually play in cinemas, although the likelihood of that happening is slim. It was just a few days ago that we saw the first poster for the film

Deadpool 2 Teaser Confirms the Main Villain?

Deadpool 2 Teaser Confirms the Main Villain?
We were finally shown some footage for Deadpool 2 in the new teaser video that was released today, presented as a comical Bob Ross-inspired clip. Although the video was short, it upped the excitement level considerably and fans have been freeze framing every scene to tear it apart and analyze it, showing off Zazie Beetz as Domino and a shot of Cable's techno-organic hand reaching for a gun, along with some old favorites thrown in for good measure. But, while most people were focused on the footage, they may have missed the unveiling of the villain for the first time and it looks as if it is Mister Sinister.

While paying close attention to the canvas and paints that are shown right before the clip montage, a weird smudge is shown on the canvas that immediately throws Wade Wilson off guard. The image is hard to make out, but
