Elizabeth Olsen On Watching Tom Holland Watch ‘Avengers’ Footage, ‘Wind River’ And ‘Ingrid Goes West’ [Interview]

It’s gone slightly under the radar, but after a few underwhelming efforts Elizabeth Olsen is hitting a peak point in her career. After her breakthrough in “Martha Marcy May Marlene” six years ago, she starred in a number of forgettable indies (“Liberal Arts,” “I Saw The Light”) and a summer blockbuster most viewers probably don’t remember she was even in (“Godzilla”). She was fortunate enough to land the role of Wanda Maximoff aka The Scarlet Witch in Marvel StudiosAvengers: Age of Ultron,” however, and reprised her role in the very well received “Captain America: Civil War” a little over a year ago.

Dennis O’Neil: Après View

  • Comicmix
So all hail, Princess Diana! For the second week in a row, she has conquered the all mighty Box Office!

You commerce-and-finance majors might consider declaring a holiday. Liberal arts dweebs like me will be satisfied with being grateful for a genuinely satisfying movie-going experience.

There’s a lot to be said for the film and no doubt a lot of it is already being said, with, again no doubt, more to come. It’s the kind of flick that prompts après theater discussion, which is kind of rare these days, especially among those of us who have logged a load of birthdays. We were so happy with the afternoon’s entertainment that we didn’t mind not remembering where we left the car.

I’d like to focus on only one aspect of it and maybe get in some opinions about superhero movies in general. And it affords a

4 Must-Watch Films If You’re About to Graduate College and Feel Lost as F*ck

A cinematic guide to confronting postgrad malaise.Fox Searchlight Pictures

It’s getting to be that time of year where if you listen closely, you can hear millions of parents asking soon-to-be graduates about their plans for the future. Transitioning out of an academic setting can be tricky. And with it comes a very specific kind of funk; a strange and aimless limbo aggravated by the dreaded…so — now what?

I’ve heard that millennials are adult babies and back in the day dinosaurs walked uphill both ways and payed for their entire tuition with the quarters they earned selling lemonade during the summer. Which is to say: the financial and social pressures shouldered by recent graduates are very real existential threats. Thankfully, small comfort though it may be, the disenchanted former student has more than a few cinematic role models to choose from. The postgrad film, older sibling to the high school coming-of-age-movie, concerns

Guido Hendrikx’s Provocative Take on Immigration, ’Stranger In Paradise,’ Opens Idfa 2016

Amsterdam – If Lars Von Trier were to make a documentary about the current immigration crisis in Europe, it might very well turn out like “Stranger in Paradise,” the debut feature by Guido Hendrikx.

Aged just 29, the ambitious director – who believes himself a late-starter, having “only” taken up filmmaking in his early twenties – is already committed to thorny issues, as evidenced by his controversial 2014 short “Among Us,” which focused on the stories of three adult paedophiles. Developed in his native Netherlands but shot in Italy, “Stranger in Paradise” offers three takes on immigration, first from an aggressive right-wing tabloid perspective, then from a more humane, liberal stance. Finally, a classroom of real-life migrants are told how their cases may yet be handled.

The film opened Idfa on Wednesday night, affirming outgoing festival director Ally Derks’ belief that the event “has a reputation to maintain for strong, topical, controversial opening films – films

'How to Get Away With Murder': Charlie Weber Talks Wtf Fan Theories

'How to Get Away With Murder': Charlie Weber Talks Wtf Fan Theories
One of the more recent additions to the kingdom of TV queen Shonda Rhimes, How to Get Away With Murder follows a quintet of pre-law students score a prestigious internship with power lawyer Annalise Keating (viva Viola Davis!). Soon, they find themselves entwined in a web of secrecy and murder. Annalise's closest ally and confidante is her underling Frank Delfino, portrayed by Charlie Weber — at least, he was until the end of the second season, when she learned of a certain past betrayal and Frank skipped town with a money-packed suitcase.

How Zac Efron went from first crush to comedy beefcake

He rocketed to stardom in High School Musical as a clean-cut all-American kid. But Zac Efron is now notching up a string of muscular comedy performances to match his pecs

Don’t laugh, but Zac Efron is shaping up to be one of the funniest actors in American cinema today. When he starred in 2014’s Bad Neighbours as a hot-but-dim party animal whose shindigs make life hell for the nice couple next door, it was a light-bulb moment. Efron was a scream: who knew? Only a small group of cinemagoers who had seen him two years earlier as a dippy stoner in the 2012 indie comedy Liberal Arts. But it was Bad Neighbours that should be credited with inventing the Zac-com, a mini-genre that also includes Dirty Grandpa, Bad Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising and his latest, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.

In its emphasis on preening complacency, his performance

The Leaves: Josh Radnor to direct new sci-fi drama

How I Met Your Mother's Josh Radnor is set to direct the upcoming sci-fi drama, The Leaves...

Josh Radnor, of How I Met Your Mother and Mercy Street fame, will be exploring uncharted (for him) territory as director of Lionsgate/Summit’s sci-fi drama The Leaves, the latest supernatural comic to come alive on the big screen.

This isn’t Radnor’s first time behind the camera (though it is his first paranormal one). His first venture behind the scenes was writing and directing the buzzed-about dramedy Happythankyoumoreplease, followed by Liberal Arts, which he also starred in. Both of his films received serious accolades even though neither was a box office smash.

In an uncharacteristic move, he won’t be making an onscreen appearance this time around. The Leaves is also a departure from his usual comedic material as he enters the world of science fiction.

What will ‘How I Met Your Mother’ alum Josh Radnor bring to the sci-fi genre?

  • Hitfix
How I Met Your Mother alum Josh Radnor is getting into sci-fi. He will direct a sci-fi drama called The Leaves, based on a Virgin Comics (now Liquid Comics) one-shot comic of the same name. Summit Entertainment acquired the rights to the graphic novel way back in 2008. Here is the description of The Leaves on Amazon: Inspired by the real-life Naadi fortune-tellers of India and one man’s legendary experience, Doctor Max Mellick has the universe at his fingertips — a world-renown heart surgeon with a striking girlfriend and extravagant New York lifestyle. When he attends a friend's funeral in India, something deep within him is forever changed. Identified as evil by an Indian fortune-teller, Max is forced to flee the country — to save his own life, but more importantly, to preserve his destiny. Interestingly, there’s a major aspect of The Leaves’ story (which Variety mentions) that’s not in that summary.

Zac Efron: Joking His Way to Movie Stardom

Zac Efron: Joking His Way to Movie Stardom
A lot of young women — or former young women — may disagree with me, but for a while there Zac Efron came off as a poster boy for the following notion: that it’s possible to be too good-looking to be a movie star. In the “High School Musical” films, of course, he was all mussy-coiffed, aqua-blue-eyed charm — a wholesome hunk who knew how to dance, and when he wasn’t dancing knew how to micromanage his charisma so that it fell right on the cusp between dewy and sexy. He was a classic teen idol — he looked like Sean Cassidy with hair gel — and when you’re sitting on top of that world, surrounded by screaming fans, it always seems, at least within the entertainment industry, like you can conquer anything.

It was all but forgone that Efron would get a crack at movie stardom, and he did, but when

All Eyes (Including Chris Evans') Were On Elizabeth Olsen During Last Night's Captain America: Civil War Premiere

Talking to Vulture recently, Chris Evans revealed that if The Avengers were real, he would more than likely be #TeamIronMan. "There would have to be some sort of responsibility," he explained. "You have to answer to somebody. You can't just let this group of vigilantes answer to themselves." Well, that's a fair point and all, but based on the images below, I would say that the Captain America: Civil War star is in fact more likely to be #TeamScarletWitch! The talented actress - who you should definitely check out in the likes of Martha Marcy May Marlene and Liberal Arts if you've only seen in her in Godzilla and the Marvel movies - has been making headlines after stealing th show on the red carpet of the European premiere, and these are the photos which have caused such a stir...
