The speculation surrounding the currently empty director’s chair of Marvel’s planned Captain Marvel movie continues to focus on Angelina Jolie. According to Collider’s updated story from their sources at Marvel, the appointment of Patty Jenkins as director of Wonder Woman for Warner Bros. has essentially kicked that speculation up a gear, moving the rumor status from the studio being ‘in pursuit of Jolie’ to being ‘in hot pursuit of Jolie.’ It remains to be seen whether the actress-director is either interested in making a comic book adaptation, or has the time – but the rumors highlight an interesting, yet frustrating trend in the current superhero genre.
There is no denying that both DC/Warner Bros. and Marvel/Disney have heeded audience calls for better female representation in their superhero movie franchises. Less than ten years ago, every major superhero release was led by male characters, but now, we »

Another summer, another batch of new superheroes and action stars hit the big screen, and another wave of potential new movie stars in their wake. From TV actors making the leap to the big screen, to indie actors starring in their first big movies to newcomers eyeing their first big break, the summer moviegoing season is chock full of future Oscar winners and A-listers. Some of these faces have been around, like “Homeland” star Rupert Friend headlining his first action franchise, some are brand new, like Sundance breakout Shameik Moore in “Dope,” but all of them are headlining or starring in. »

The German automaker’s luxury cars get showy shoutouts throughout E.L. James’ steamy book — to the point where its vehicles are plot points. It was James’ creative decision, the way Stephenie Meyer had so prominently written Volvos into her “Twilight” series.
In fact, the cars are a signature element of business tycoon Christian Grey’s high-end lifestyle, alongside his private jet and helicopter.
The sexual situations and much-discussed scenes of bondage would have turned off many marketers. Yet for Audi, pop culture has played a key role in how the company connects with consumers.

Less than a week after filmmaker John Singleton said the long-in-the-works Tupac Shakur biopic was "on hold," the director has severed his ties to the film. He addressed his exit on Instagram, accompanied by a picture of an article claiming that director Carl Franklin (Out of Time, Homeland, House of Cards) would now be helming the movie.
"The reason I am not making this picture is because the people involved aren't really respectful of the legacy of Tupac Amaru Shakur," wrote Singleton, who directed Shakur in Poetic Justice.

Shooting is planned to begin in August or September, according to Morgan Creek spokesman Greg Mielcarz. Singleton left the project over creative differences several months ago, Mielcarz told Variety.
For his part, Singleton said on his Instagram account this week, “The reason I am not making this picture is because the people involved aren’t really respectful of the legacy of Tupac Amaru Shakur.”
Singleton had fallen off the project in 2012 and come back on in 2014.

Question: Anything new and scoopy on The Good Wife? —Brandon
Ausiello: This is new, scoopy and curious: I hear CBS has quietly extended the contracts of the primary cast — that includes Julianna Margulies, Christine Baranski and Matt Czuchry — for two more seasons beyond the current sixth. That’s interesting coming off of Good Wife cocreator Robert King’s comments in last week’s Ask Ausiello, in which he hinted that even though he always envisioned the show ending after seven seasons, »
Adam Bakri (“Omar”) and Maria Valverde (Ridley Scott’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings”) star as the titular star-crossed lovers, and are joined by Mandy Patinkin (“Homeland,” “Criminal Minds,” “The Princess Bride”) and Connie Nielsen (“Nymphomaniac,” “Gladiator”), playing Nino’s parents Gregor and Tamar Kipiani.
Ali Khan and Nino Kipiani live in Baku, the cosmopolitan, oil-rich capital of Azerbaijan, which, at the beginning of the 20th century, is a melting pot of different cultures. Ali is a Muslim, with his warrior ancestors’ passion for the desert; and Nino is a Christian Georgian girl with sophisticated European ways.

A number of new movie posters have been released over the past couple of weeks, so in the interest of convenience we’ve rounded up some of the more notable one-sheets for your viewing pleasure. Briefly: Mad Max: Fury Road – A pair of new posters for George Miller’s insane-looking post-apocalyptic actioner look fittingly mad. Starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, and Nicholas Hoult, the film opens in theaters on May 15th. Hitman: Agent 47 – A new poster for the video game adaptation puts Homeland star Rupert Friend front-and-center with a rather intimidating pose. The film opens in theaters on August 28th. Maggie – Otherwise known as "the Arnold Schwarzenegger zombie movie," this film revolves around a father taking care of his zombified daughter (played by Abigail Breslin). The official one-sheet is perhaps more somber than anticipated. The film will open in theaters and On Demand on May 8th. Insidious: Chapter 3 »

IGN has pulled back the blood-red curtain on an all-new poster for 20th Century Fox’s forthcoming video game adaptation, Hitman: Agent 47.
Starring Homeland alum Rupert Friend as the titular, reticent and all-round lethal assassin, the film is based on Eidos’ long-running series. With Aleksander Bach behind the lens, it’s understood that this latest cinematic interpretation won’t consider the middling 2009 movie as canon, instead writing a new chapter in Agent 47’s bloody history.
This modern retelling also has space for Star Trek Into Darkness and American Horror Story‘s Zachary Quinto, who is on board to play one of the movie’s overarching villains – a cog in part of a mega-corporation hellbent on monetizing Agent 47’s precious DNA. Oldboy‘s Hannah Ware is also part of the cast, and going off of the trailers released to date, it seems that the actress will be a potential ally »

If you plan to watch the first episode of Wolf Hall on Masterpiece on Sunday, you are about to witness one of the best dramas to come out of the UK for over a decade. Put Downton Abbey to one side, because this writing, acting and direction might as well come from an entirely different island. It is so much better.
And yes, it does feature Damian Lewis from Homeland as the spoiled, capricious king of England, but you will barely notice him once Mark Rylance arrives on screen. More of him in a minute. Actually, that’s unfair, as Lewis does a splendid job portraying a difficult role – but it’s clear he raises his game and drills down a bit deeper into »
