The first movie from the team behind Comedy Central's Key & Peele sets itself apart from most action comedies in its prologue, in which an adorable grey kitten scampers through the slo-mo crossfire of a bloody warehouse massacre like he's the hero of a John Woo movie. Unlike so many genre parodies of its kind, Keanu actually captures the style of its subject. It only gets more impressive when it mixes in some authentic-looking Michael Mann too.
The cat then runs all the way to Rell (Jordan Peele), a heartbroken layabout who's recently been dumped by his girlfriend. Keanu the kitten brightens up Rell's life considerably, much to the relief of his strait-laced cousin Clarence (Keegan-Michael Key). Their happiness is short-lived when Rell's home is targeted by burglars looking for his drug-dealing neighbour (Will Forte) and they've catnapped the only one who was at home. »

“Edge of Tomorrow” ($0.99, 80% off)
In a summer full of lousy Hollywood fare, go back to 2014 and re-experience Doug Liman’s brilliant sci-fi romp. Written by master screenwriter Chris McQuarrie, “Edge of Tomorrow” pushes Tom Cruise to rock bottom and kills him off in the first 10 minutes.

The future of the X-Men Movie Universe feels a little bit uncertain right now. Deadpool was very successful, and that corner of the series is moving full-steam ahead. But the main X-Men franchise is getting messier and messier, especially after X-Men: Apocalypse. Fox is going to be working on some more spinoffs to help keep the franchise moving forward, and even though there has been a massive delay, the Gambit movie appears to still be very much alive, and a part of the future for the X-Men franchise.
Producer Simon Kindberg recently gave a very brief update on the status of Channing Tatum's Gambit movie. During a quick interview on The Hashtag Show, Kindberg mentioned that he feels very strongly about the script for the movie, and that they are planning on shooting it at some point next year. Here is what Kindberg had to say.
"We have a »
Back in June, we received word that Doug Liman (Edge Of Tomorrow) had signed on to helm Lionsgate & Summit Entertainment's upcoming film adaptation of the young adult sci-fi thriller novel Chaos Walking and while it wasn't explicitly stated, the announcement seemingly suggested that another delay for 20th Century Fox's Gambit might be on the horizon, especially with Chaos Walking also eyeing a fall start date. Yesterday, That Hashtag Show released their brief interview segment with producer/writer Simon Kinberg from the 42nd Saturn Awards and when asked about the status of the upcoming Channing Tatum-starrer, Kinberg revealed that the script, which Liman had been overseeing rewrites on for months, has finally been completed and then goes on to reveal when they plan on kicking off production: "Yeah, we have a great script on that, and hope to shoot that movie at the beginning or spring of next year. »
During an interview with The Hashtag Show (via Comic Book), writer-producer Simon Kinberg has spoken briefly about Fox’s upcoming X-Men schedule, as well as revealing that the current plan is to begin filming the oft-delayed Gambit movie in the Spring.
“We’re figuring out [the schedule now],” said Kinberg. “The first thing up, we’re shooting the Wolverine movie right now and we start shooting Deadpool 2 at the beginning of next year, then I sit down and start writing the next one of the mainline X-Men movies real soon. We have a great script on [Gambit] and hope to shoot that movie at the beginning of spring of next year.”
The Channing Tatum-headlined Gambit was originally slated for release this October, with Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) set to direct. However, Wyatt exited the project due to creative differences, with Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) then replacing him. »

The long-accepted rule in the film industry is that established names bring in the box office gold. Hollywood has always relied on big-name actors to guarantee them big box office. But is the trend changing now? Are fans now becoming less interested in A-list actors than in the characters they play?
A-List Hollywood stars get the big money because they bring in big profits for Hollywood studios. Or at least, they have up until now. Is the era of the A-Lister starting to fade? It’s possible, because in recent years, it seems that film fans have more interest in the role and less in the person playing the role. Look at what’s been happening to many A-lister in recent years.
Let’s take Johnny Depp, for instance. He used to play a variety of roles and could draw in crowds with his name alone. More recently, however, his »

Newcomer Ross Evans has been tapped to pen “Gadabout” for Sony, sources tell Variety.
The film is inspired by the user manual for the Gadabout Tm-1050, a time machine for the home mass produced in 1951.
The idea for the project was brought to Evans by Joby Harold (“Edge of Tomorrow”), Tory Tunnell (“Underground”) and Matt Schwartz (“My Blind Brother”), who are all set to produce under their Safe House company banner.
The job is a big break for the young scribe, who had previously created the digital series “Ian” for Stage17, which he wrote, helmed and starred in.
He is repped by Wme and Hirsch Wallerstein.
