Avengers: Age Of Ultron Star Jeremy Renner Clarifies His Black Widow Joke

5 May 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Last month, near the tail-end of the massive Avengers: Age Of Ultron press tour, stars Chris Evans (Snowpiercer) & Jeremy Renner (Kill The Messenger) found themselves in a bit of hot water after a joke they made about fellow Avenger, the Black Widow, went viral. After the comments were blown way out of proportion, both actors issued quick apologies, with Renner's statement receiving a bit of initial flak, and the issue was seemingly forgotten as it got caught up in the hype surrounding the release of the Joss Whedon-directed film. Last night on Conan, Renner revisited the whole situation and clarified a bit on the initial joke. Check out his comments in the video below: Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, »

The Surprisingly Prolific Comic Book Actors

20 April 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).

Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned, »

Chris Evans Is Bashful and Beautiful After Being Asked If He’s Dating Lily Collins

14 April 2015 11:18 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Chris Evans, who may have still been slightly Drunky Brewster from filming Jimmy Kimmel Live, was asked by Entertainment Tonight if he is, as the rumors say, off the market. His adorable sputtering speaks volumes about whether he’s truly dating Mirror, Mirror star and daughter of Phil Collins, Lily Collins.

Evans and Collins have been rumored to be dating since last month when they were spotted at dinner together. Evans previously dated Minka Kelly and Collins was once linked with Zac Efron. He didn’t say no, but he didn’t say yes, which means you still have a chance.

Captain America takes us behind the scenes of his 2014 film, Snowpiercer.

Trailers From Hell Boards 'Snowpiercer'

23 March 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Director Bong Joon-ho’s 2013 follow-up to his cult-fave "The Host" was an across-the-board critical hit but suffered from its limited release in art-house theaters. The film’s action is entirely relegated to the interior of a massive train inhabited by the last remaining survivors of earth, the result of a climate change experiment gone tragically wrong. A high speed metaphor for class warfare, the film stars Chris Evans, John Hurt and Tilda Swinton as a memorably eccentric autocrat.

Josh Hutcherson, Zach Braff, Analeigh Tipton, Ashley Greene and Ahna O’Reilly join James Franco’s In Dubious Battle

18 March 2015 1:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With principal photography now underway, it has been announced that Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games), Zach Braff (Garden State), Analeigh Tipton (Crazy, Stupid, Love), Ashley Greene (Twilight) and Ahna O’Reilly (The Help) have joined the cast of James Franco’s John Steinbeck adaptation In Dubious Battle.

The five new additions join an all-star cast alongside Franco, Selena Gomez (Hotel Transylvania), Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil), Robert Duvall (The Judge), Ed Harris (Snowpiercer), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars) and John Savage (The Deer Hunter).

Set in a fictionalized valley in California, the story explores themes Steinbeck continued to develop: group behavior, social injustice, man’s inhumanity to man— all themes which continue to be relevant today. A labor conflict between migrant apple pickers and the local growers’ association is the backdrop against which Jim Nolan (Franco) becomes involved in the labor movement and rapidly matures »

Run All Night movie review: bloody bromance breakup

12 March 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Too long and too same-old, and even Liam Neeson’s effortless tough-guy charm can only carry this familiar-feeling film so far. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Yup. We get it. Liam Neeson is one of the all-time great Hollywood tough guys. I’m not even being sarcastic. In Run All Night, his Jimmy Conlon is an obnoxious alcoholic bum, a former hitman for the Irish mob in New York who’s haunted by all the people he killed. He’s hated by his adult son, Mike (Joel Kinnaman: RoboCop, Easy Money: Hard to Kill), who wants nothing to do with his father, and with good reason: Jimmy Conlon is not a nice man. At all. And yet somehow, Neeson (Taken 3, A Walk Among the Tombstones) suckers us into sympathizing with him »

The Grand Budapest Hotel movie review: best exotic nonsense

11 March 2015 8:54 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A grownup storybook of a movie spun out of candy-colored nonsense that challenges you to embrace its falseness and deny its romance. I’m “biast” (pro): love Wes Anderson

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Thank god for Wes Anderson. Our entertainment ecosystem may be one of bland tediousness in which creatively bankrupt movie machines spit out the same stories over and over again, but once in a while Anderson will commute from the other plane of existence he lives on — I imagine the colors are brighter there, and the air always faintly redolent of baking cookies — to bestow upon us a cinematic bonbon such as The Grand Budapest Hotel. Anderson’s boons are a torment as much as a treat, of course, reminders of just how unoriginal almost everyone else making movies is. Somehow, I endure them anyway.

Round-Up: A Nightmare on Elm Street Office-Set Faux Script, Everly Blu-ray / DVD, New Star Wars Books Announced

10 March 2015 12:58 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Do you have nightmares about Bill Lumbergh telling you to put new cover sheets on your Tps reports? For some, the corporate cubicle setting is as horrifying as the creepy boiler rooms that Freddy Krueger haunts in the A Nightmare on Elm Street movies. Script excerpts and storyboards for an imagined tenth film in the Elm Street franchise show Freddy tormenting a coma patient by placing him in a mind-numbing office environment where meaningless meetings, tear-inducing small talk, and countless hours of hellish tasks reign supreme, with no escape in sight. Also included in our latest round-up are Blu-ray / DVD release details and cover art for the Salma Hayek-starring Everly and information on the 20 recently announced Star Wars books that will take place in the time period between Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens.

Octavia Spencer is in final negotiations to play God in Lionsgate's adaptation The Shack, based on William Paul Young's 2007 novel.

The police find evidence in a nearby shack that suggest the young girl was murdered.

Against his better judgment, he does return to the shack, where he finds something that will change his life forever.

4 March 2015 11:00 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

They've done what they've had to do to survive on AMC's The Walking Dead, brining hope and despair to palpable life on the small screen with gritty realism every week. Covered in grime, splattered in blood, and trudging down the sun-baked backroads and brush-bordered trails this season, the stellar cast and crew of The Walking Dead have paid their dues and then some, and now they're getting a tip of the cap in return with seven nominations for the 41st Annual Saturn Awards.

Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Emily Kinney, Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs, and Andrew J. West have all earned nominations, with the TV series itself receiving one as well.

Film Feature: HollywoodChicago.com’s 2015 Oscar Predictions

Chicago – Oscar! Oscar! Oscar! Say it three times to win it, and you’ll win every Academy Award pool you enter – at least for the nine categories covered here – if you follow the advice of the HollywoodChicago.com “experts.” We have the Oscar magic, so if you believe in it, then we deliver.

Three film writers of HollywoodChicago.com – Patrick McDonald, Nick Allen and Spike Walters – will not only predict Sunday’s big night, but will suggest choreography to Neil Patrick Harris for his opening number. The crew will opine on Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor/Actress and Director. As in previous years, the prognostications are broken down into thoughts on who Will Win, Should Win and Should Have Been Nominated (for one last gasp of dissent). The predictors will also take on a wild card guess for several other categories, and the latest odds on the rest of »
