Wonder Woman: What We Know

18 February 2017 9:58 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Comic book movies have been a thing for about as long as Hollywood has been a thing, but the modern age of Superhero movies didn't really get going until around 2000. That was when X-Men came out, which changed everything. Cut to 17 years later and we still have yet to have a good, female-led superhero movie in the modern era. Wonder Woman is hoping to change that this summer.

Warner Bros. may be a little late to the game in terms of making a cinematic universe around their DC Comics superheroes when compared to Marvel Studios, but they are beating Marvel to the punch on this one. Marvel Studios has strong female heroes like Black Widow and Scarlet Witch, but after nearly a decade of making comic book movies, they have yet to make a movie featuring a female as the lead. Warner Bros. is releasing Wonder Woman as their fourth »

Those who aren’t familiar with anything but the cute Teen Titans series are in for quite a surprise as the heroes return to their darker roots in Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, which is one of the most incredible efforts from the comics. The feature-length film is inspired by a story arc from the 1984 DC comic, and has an incredible voice cast backing the supremely gritty arc.

In The Judas Contract, the Titans – Beast Boy, Raven, Blue Beetle, Robin, and Nightwing – are led by Starfire, but their newest teammate, Terra, is throwing the groups dynamic out of whack, and the team comes up against Brother Blood, an ancient evil, and Deathstroke is waiting in the wings to cause problems as well.

‘The House That Jack Built’ Director Lars von Trier Says His Serial Killer Thriller Parallels Donald Trump’s Rise

14 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Lars von Trier has never shied away from controversy. Now, the Danish writer/director has revealed that his upcoming serial-killer thriller, “The House That Jack Built,” is partly inspired by none other than Donald Trump.

In a recent interview with The Guardian, the filmmaker said, “‘The House That Jack Built’ celebrates the idea that life is evil and soulless, which is sadly proven by the recent rise of the Homo trumpus – the rat king.”

The House That Jack Built Opens Its Doors To Riley Keough And Sofie Grabol

14 February 2017 6:23 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Riley Keough is an actress on the fast-track to stardom. After stepping foot onto George Miller’s ravaged wasteland for Mad Max: Fury Road, Keough turned heads and raised eyebrows with her compelling, nuanced performance in The Girlfriend Experience, Starz’s escort drama that is currently gearing up for a second season sans Christine Reade.

But even if Riley Keough’s dalliance with The Girlfriend Experience is essentially over, the star has locked down a handful of enticing roles long into 2018. The Discovery springs to mind as a notable example, while there’s also a reunion with Tge‘s Steven Soderbergh on the cards thanks to Nascar heist drama Logan Lucky. According to The Hollywood Reporter, we can now add The House That Jack Built to Keough’s bustling slate.

Hot off the presses from the ongoing 2017 Berlin Film Festival, THR has confirmed that Riley Keough and Sofie Grabol (The Killing »

‘Spoor’ Review: A Genre-Bending Revenge Thriller From Agnieszka Holland — Berlinale 2017

12 February 2017 2:39 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Eagle-eyed viewers better versed in the Polish language will have to scour the end credits of Agnieszka Holland’s “Spoor” to find out if any animals were actually harmed in the making of this feisty, genre-bending film. Though far from perfect, this one part revenge thriller, one part eco-reverie, tied together with sumptuous visual brio, is the “John Wick”/ “Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring” mash-up you never knew you always wanted.

A note about the filmmaker first: Holland has one of the more interesting careers in international cinema, directing period dramas in French, Czech and Polish for the Euro-art-house circuit, while at the same time working steadily as a hired gun on prestige American series. Having spent the past several years working with NBC, HBO and Netflix, Holland clearly relishes her return to the feature filmmaking, »

Riley Keough & More Join the Next Films from Lars von Trier and Jeremy Saulnier

12 February 2017 2:03 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

While speaking to her at Sundance, I remarked how incredible the upcoming year is for Riley Keough, adding David Robert Mitchell, Trey Edward Shults, and Charlie McDowell to her resume, one that already includes George Miller, Andrea Arnold, and Steven Soderbergh (who she’ll also be re-teaming with this year). We can now add two more of our favorite directors to the list: Jeremy Saulnier and Lars von Trier.

First up, the Green Room and Blue Ruin director’s next film is Hold the Dark, which he’s making for Netflix. Along with Keough, Jeffrey Wright, Alexander Skarsgard, James Badge Dale, and James Bloor have also joined the cast. The adventure thriller is based on William Giraldi‘s novel, which follows a wolf expert (Wright) who comes to Alaska to investigate disappearing children with the prime suspect being — you guessed it — wolves.

Agnieszka Holland’s Stalin-Era Film ‘Gareth Jones’ Boarded by WestEnd (Exclusive)

10 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

WestEnd Films has acquired worldwide sales rights to politically charged project “Gareth Jones,” the next film from twice-Oscar-nominated Polish director Agnieszka Holland, whose latest movie “Spoor” is in competition at the Berlin Film Festival.

Gareth Jones” tells the real-life story of the eponymous Welsh journalist who exposed the Holodomor, Stalin’s 1933 genocide-famine in Ukraine. Research suggests that the reporter was murdered with the help of Soviet agents the day before he turned 30. His reporting of the famine was said to have inspired George Orwell to write “Animal Farm.”

Scriptwriter Andrea Serdaru-Barbul first approached Holland, who is the daughter of journalists, with her script two years ago. “Since then the story has become even more relevant,” Holland told Variety. “The situation around us has change, and you can find some similarities with the 1930s.”

Holland says she receives many scripts with political themes, but this one stood out. “I am always interested in politically charged subjects, »

Despite Losing Release Date, World War Z Sequel Still Being Eyed by Director David Fincher

7 February 2017 3:58 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Following the revelation that the new Friday the 13th movie has been canceled after Paramount Pictures removed it from their release schedule, some are fearing that the World War Z sequel might suffer a similar fate after vacating its 2017 release slot, but it appears that director David Fincher is still interested in keeping the living dead project alive.

According to THR, David Fincher remains “very creatively interested in directing the movie” after Paramount took the sequel to 2013’s World War Z off of their release schedule, presumably to set it for a later release in 2018 or ’19. World War Z 2 was initially slated to come out on June 9th of this year.

Back in August, it was first reported that Finhcer was in early discussions with the film’s star and producer Brad Pitt to helm the sequel after J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls) departed the project. Fincher has previously worked with Pitt on Se7en, »

New international TV spot for ‘Wonder Woman’

6 February 2017 11:03 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster, AMC’s The Killing) and starring Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious) in the titular role, Wonder Woman made her big screen debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but this new film will mark her first time the character has headlined a solo feature – though you’d be hard-pressed to top Lynda Carter’s formidable run as the character on TV.

Wonder Woman also stars Chris Pine (Star Trek) as Captain Steve Trevor, Robin Wright (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, House of Cards), Danny Huston (Clash of the Titans, X-Men Origins: Wolverine), David Thewlis (Harry Potter), Ewen Bremner (Snowpiercer), Saïd Taghmaoui (American Hustle), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In) and Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead).

There’s a lot riding on the success of Wonder Woman, given the less-than-stellar (but surprisingly money-making) reception of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the more recent Suicide Squad. »

ABC's 'The Catch' Embracing Comedy in Season 2

10 January 2017 4:58 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

ABC's The Catch is rebooting itself for its upcoming second season.

Showrunner Allan Heinberg told reporters Tuesday at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour that the con-man drama starring Peter Krause (Parenthood) and Mireille Enos (The Killing) and produced by Shonda Rhimes will embrace comedy and abandon its procedural element in season two.

"The case work … was really challenging. We were finding out what the show was as we went. I owed the network and audience a 'case of the week' every week, and they were hard to break and took up an enormous amount of real estate »
