Wowza. I don't know how the MPAA let them get away with this, but awesome, let me say that. I'm guessing the lack of any cigarette/joint makes all the difference. Two new posters and a first look photo have debuted for American Ultra, the new film from a script by Max Landis (of Chronicle, The Death and Return of Superman) directed by Nima Nourizadeh. Actor Jesse Eisenberg plays a stoner named Mike who, along with Kristen Stewart as his girlfriend, it turns out is a sleeper agent, and the government is trying to eliminate him. They definitely both look like stoners, with Eisenberg donning a wig, and Stewart dying her hair for the part, the only thing that really is missing is a joint. Take a look at all the new images below. Your first look at American Ultra from MTV, showing Jesse Eisenberg as Mike + Kristen Stewart as »

Our first look at Lionsgate’s action-comedy American Ultra has arrived, and the Adventureland reunion between stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg actually looks like it could function as a genuine sequel to Greg Mottola’s underrated coming-of-age drama. Written by Chronicle scribe Max Landis and directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X), the story finds a stoner (Eisenberg) and his girlfriend’s (Stewart) life disrupted when a government operation descends upon their small town with the aim of wiping the stoner out. The picture begins as a romance, with Eisenberg’s character aiming to propose to his longtime girlfriend, but it’s soon revealed that he’s actually a sleeper agent. While the movie definitely has an action bent, Nourizadeh explains to MTV that at heart it’s a love story: “You start with this kind of like sweet love story,” Nourizadeh said. “I don’t want to turn people off with that, »

Debuting his very own Twitter account yesterday, director Luc Besson has unveiled the first details for his next film, an adaptation of French comic series Valerian and Laureline entitled Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, including the film’s logo.
The comic series was created by Pierre Christin and artist Jean-Claude Mézières, and Besson himself will write the adaptation, as well as direct. In addition, the filmmaker has announced that he has already found his leads, with Dane DeHaan (Chronicle) and Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad) set to star.
Selling over 10 million copies since it was first published, Valerian and Laureline was created by Christin and Mezieres in 1967 and the series is described as:
“Valerian and Laureline are exploring Syrte, capital planet of a system of 1,000 worlds. Their mission is to discover whether the Syrtians could present a danger to Earth. What they find is a decaying empire led by decadent aristocrats, »

While it may have devided people with how big, loud, and, let’s face it, dumb as it was, there’s no denying Lucy was a huge return to form for Luc Besson, who wasn’t really bringing his A game in recent years. Now, Besson is staying in the realm of sci-fi with Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, an adaption of French comic book series Valerian and Laureline, what he calls “the biggest challenge of his career”. The ambitious project is set for a Summer 2017 release date, and is expected to begin production near the end of this year, with Chronicle’s Dane Dehaan and Cara Delevingne (next year’s Suicide Squad) stepping into the shoes of time travel agents Valerian and Laureline, who travel through time and space trying to maintain order in the 28th century. The movie has also seen Besson has popped his social media cherry, »

When it comes to international film festivals, there are sprinters and there are distance runners. Spanning 25 days across May and June, Seattle International Film Festival is the Pheidippides of American fests. Unlike its splashier cousins, Sundance and SXSW, Siff doesn’t pander to big movie stars or flashy hipsters. Staying true to its Northwest sensibilities, Siff quietly grinds out one terrific program after another. The 41st edition boasts a whopping 193 feature films, 164 short films, and 70 documentaries, many of which are either World or North American premieres. It’s enough to make even the most ambitious cinephile curl up in a corner with his festival guide and cry. Here, then, is a brief preview of some hotly anticipated films, as well as some obscure titles that might otherwise go unnoticed.
Strategically positioned in the middle of the calendar year, Siff has the advantage of playing favorites. More specifically, they »

Has being the director of a film in a major franchise become a high-stakes gamble? Ryan looks at the pressures faced by modern filmmakers.
The process of making the behemoth that is Avengers: Age Of Ultron has clearly taken its toll on Joss Whedon. In each successive interview with the press, he’s talked with surprising openness about the process of making the superhero sequel and his battles to places an individual stamp on it; this culminated in a recent podcast with Empire, in which he described the “really, really unpleasant” fight to keep certain scenes in the film.
For an established writer and director like Whedon, who’s been working in TV and film since the 90s, taking on a project as huge and loaded with expectation as a Marvel film is evidently punishing, both physically and psychologically. Imagine how difficult it must be, then, to make the jump »
More Star Wars spinoffs are inevitable. And everyone in the universe, from Han to Chewie to Lando to Leia, could all have one. Gareth Edwards is working on Rogue One, which in 2016 will tell the story of how rebels stole the plans for the Death Star, ultimately leading to the events of A New Hope.
The one character who we expected would receive a spinoff, but maybe is the only character that shouldn’t get one, is Boba Fett, the mysterious, iconic, helmeted bounty hunter from the original trilogy. Of course, there’s a rich, potential history of bounty hunters throughout the galaxy far, far away, and it only stands to reason that Boba Fett would be the perfect vessel to explore him. But when you take off that helmet and he becomes yet another character, do we lose that luster?
Whatever the case, The Wrap confirmed late Monday that »

Josh Trank (Fantastic Four, Chronicle) was recently attached to direct a "Star Wars" spin-off, but was fired after producers from his other movies had a bunch of negative things to say about his behavior on set. While Disney has yet to replace him, The Wrap is reporting that the film will focus on the origin story of Boba Fett, a Mandalorian warrior who was trained by his father-figure Jango Fett and became a notorious bounty hunter throughout the galaxy. His travels led him to work for the Empire, collaborate with Darth Vader and take assignments from figures such as Jabba the Hutt, for whom he once captured Han Solo. The spin-off will hit theaters in 2018. But Disney is also currently working on a different spin-off, called "Star Wars: Rogue One," which will be directed by Gareth Edwards and follow a group of resistance fighters who unite for a daring »
The character, who first appeared in The Empire Strikes Back, Return Of The Jedi, and then in the prequels that followed, is widely loved amongst the Star Wars fan base, and if The Wrap is to be believed, the anthology film, to be released in 2018, will be based around him and a group of bounty hunters.
He had this to say on his departure:
“After a year of having the incredible honor of developing with the wonderful and talented people at Lucasfilm, I’m making a personal decision to move forward on a different path. »

We already know that the first standalone Star Wars Anthology movie, which goes by the name of Rogue One, will be arriving in cinemas at the end of 2016. Godzilla's Gareth Edwards is directing, and Felicity Jones has signed up to star.
At the end of last week, we learned too of a change of personnel with regards the second Star Wars Anthology film, that's due in cinemas in 2018. Chronicle and Fantastic Four's Josh Trank had been due to direct that one, but he departed the projected, and the search is on for a new director.
Note: The above image is fan art and not official art from the upcoming untitled movie It's been rumored for quite awhile now, but today -- on Star Wars Day, of all days -- we bring word that the second standalone Star Wars movie due out in 2018 will be a Boba Fett origin story. The Wrap broke the news only hours after that film's initial director, Josh Trank (Chronicle, Fantastic Four) departed the project to pursue other ideas. So while the film awaits a new director, we can start speculating as to what kind of origin story this actually is. Here's video of Boba Fett's initial 1978 screentest -- his real origin story. That's because we've already seen stuff with Boba Fett as a kid, adopted by his father Jango Fett -- who has a much...

Happy Star Wars Day everyone! After new images and details from Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted online earlier today [see here and here], The Wrap is now reporting that the second spin-off in the Star Wars Anthology series is set to focus on the origin and backstory of Boba Fett.

The character of Boba Fett first appeared on film in the second Star Wars film The Empire Strikes Back and also appearing in Return of the Jedi before featuring as a young boy alongside his father Jango Fett in the middle chapter of the prequel trilogy, Attack of the Clones. It is expected that the »
