Matthew McConaughey Considering Marvel and DC Superhero Films

17 May 2015 3:15 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Despite being a well-known actor for many years, Matthew McConaughey has become one of Hollywood's biggest stars after such projects as "Interstellar," "Mud," "Dallas Buyers Club" and "True Detective." And just like with most actors and directors, McConaughey was recently asked if he would ever consider being in a superhero movie. He replied: "I've read some Marvel and DC scripts and I've talked about working with them on some scripts, none of which I'll share with you what they are . or were. Yeah, I've circled some of those. Nothing has been right for me yet. But I'm sure open to it." When asked what would convince him to join a superhero film, McConaughey said: "It's very simple for me. I look at the script. Is the opportunity exciting? Is the money that comes with it exciting? Sure. Is it the possibility of going, 'Hey you can get on a train »

Saturday Night Live Recap: Everyone and Their Mother Is on Reese Witherspoon's Episode

10 May 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Reese Witherspoon is full of surprises. She's in critically acclaimed independent films like Mud, and high-budget flops like This Means War. She'll get arrested vigorously defending her husband against a DUI charge, disappear for a year, then return in two powerhouses of the Oscar season. And then she'll follow all that up with the intensely reviled Hot Pursuit, which she's currently promoting with a stint hosting Saturday Night Live. The only surprise she could have brought to the show is if she didn't approach her hosting duties ready to play. The real surprise was that this episode was just as risky and unpredictable as its host. There is scathing satire, pitch-black comedy, and heartstring-plucking sentiment all in the same 90 minutes. Some of these risks did not pay off—frankly, some of them were total trainwrecks—but like Reese Witherspoon's career, you always wanted to see what happens next.2016 Republicans »

8 May 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jeff Nichols, who earned widespread acclaim for his dramas Take Shelter and Mud, has next lined up Loving, a drama he wrote and will shoot this SeptemberWarrior actor Joel Edgerton and World War Z actress Ruth Negga are attached to lead the drama in the roles of Richard and Mildred Loving, the couple at the center of 1967 civil rights case Loving v.

The Lovings were an interracial couple who married in June of 1958, only for their union to be met with violence and legal repercussions. Authorities broke into their home, arrested them and sentenced each to a year in a Virginia state penitentiary. The sentence was dismissed on the condition that both of them left Virginia and did not return, a compromise neither wanted to simply accept. Over nine strenuous years, the Lovings battled against a racially prejudiced system to find their way home together.

Jeff Nichols To Direct True Story Drama 'Loving' Starring Joel Edgerton And Ruth Negga

8 May 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Filmmaker Jeff Nichols (“Take Shelter,” "Mud") might have been one of the unlikely writers of “Aquaman” (or at least one version of the script) and while there were rumors he might direct (though it sounds like James Wan will helm now), he’s pretty much out of the running as his next project has been announced.  Nichols will direct “Loving” starring Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga (E4's “Misfits,” and ABC's “Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), a drama inspired by the documentary “The Loving Story” directed by Nancy Buirski (here’s our review) which was about a racially-charged criminal trial and a heart-rending mixed-race love story during the turbulent Civil Rights era. Here’s the official synopsis: Richard and Mildred Loving were married in June of 1958. As a result, authorities broke into their home, arrested them, and they were sentenced to a year in the state penitentiary. This sentence was suspended »

Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga to Lead Mud Director Jeff Nichols’ Loving

8 May 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Jeff Nichols made a big splash with his first three films, Shotgun Stories, Taking Shelter, and 2012’s Mud, which in turn led to his first studio picture, the upcoming Warner Bros. sci-fi pic Midnight Special. However, instead of going even bigger for his next film after his studio debut, it appears that Nichols is going back to the world of indies. Per Deadline, Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga have signed on to lead the drama Loving, which Nichols wrote and will direct for a September start in Virginia. Inspired by Nancy Buirski’s documentary The Loving Story, Nichols’ film is based on the 1967 civil rights case Loving vs. Virginia, which was borne out of an interracial couple being sentenced to a year in prison simply because of their marriage. They were told their sentence would be suspended if they left the state of Virginia, and they subsequently spent nine »

Reese Witherspoon gets some comic relief in Hot Pursuit

6 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

You’ve no doubt heard about how Reese Witherspoon has re-engineered herself.

Last year, the actor known for her bubbly screen presence produced two decidedly sober dramas based on the bestsellers Gone Girl and Wild. The former was a hit that tapped into the angst surrounding modern relationships, and the latter not only earned Witherspoon a Best Actress Oscar nomination (she played the lead), but let her do things on screen that America’s former sweetheart had never done before, like appearing nude and taking drugs.

Combine those producing efforts with serious turns in recent films like Mud, Devil’s Knot, The Good Lie and Inherent Vice, and it looks like, at 39, Witherspoon is determined to do away with the funny blonde persona that made her a star.

Well, looks can be deceiving. »

New X-men: Apocalypse Set Photo Reveals Cyclops and Havok’s Parents

4 May 2015 1:46 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Bryan Singer continues to tease the in-production X-Men: Apocalypse today with another set image, this time also hinting at a world-ending event. After unveiling a first look at oh-so-80s versions of Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) and Jubilee (Lana Condor) last week, today’s photo gives us a look at the parents of Cyclops and Havok. This isn’t necessarily a groundbreaking reveal, but it is interesting to note that the two mutant characters will interact in some significant way in the film. Lucas Till reprises his role as Havok, aka Alex Summers, while Mud actor Tye Sheridan is being introduced in this movie as the younger iteration of Scott Summers, aka Cyclops. And of course there’s Singer’s caption that reveals Mr. and Mrs. Summers are watching “the end of the world as they know it” on their television in this set photo, so we can safely »

Bryan Singer says X-Men: Apocalypse is “a big monster of a movie”

29 April 2015 12:27 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With production now underway on X-Men: Apocalypse, we’ve had plenty of news from the mutant superhero sequel these past couple of days, including our first look at Nightcrawler, some set photos featuring Cyclops, Jean Grey and Jubilee, and some official concept art.

Now, taking a break from filming in Montreal, director Bryan Singer has shared a few words about the film with Empire, stating that: “It’s a big monster of a movie. The stakes are so high and global and the villain 
is so mythic. It’s definitely an X-Men movie, but it really feels different.”

Producer Simon Kinberg then went on to discuss the addition of several younger X-Men characters to the First Class line-up: “They’re as much a part 
of the movie as our main cast. Scott is not yet the squeaky-clean leader. Storm is 
a troubled character who is going down the wrong path in life. »

X-men: Apocalypse: First Look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler

27 April 2015 5:38 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Today is Monday, which is unfortunate. However, director Bryan Singer feels your pain, so he’s chosen today to unveil the very first look at a new mutant from X-Men: Apocalypse. Production on the Days of Future Past follow-up begins today, and to mark the occasion, Singer has revealed the concept design for the film’s Nightcrawler, who will be played by Let Me In and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes actor Kodi Smit-McPhee. It’s an admittedly brief and early look at the character, but this is the first time the "prequel franchise" has tackled a younger iteration of a mutant from Singer's original X-Men films since the initial casting of X-Men: First Class (or, to a lesser extent, the Toad cameo in Dofp). Since it appears to be a concept image and not Smit-McPhee in actual makeup, it’s tough to spot any significant differences from »

Oscar Isaac talks X-Men: Apocalypse and the Four Horseman

24 April 2015 1:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following his adventure in a galaxy far, far away this December in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Oscar Isaac is set to take on the role of the titular villain in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse, and during an interview with IGN to promote his latest film Ex Machina, Isaac shared a few thoughts on Apocalypse’s motivation, and his recruitment of the Four Horsemen.

“Without giving anything away, the recruitment of the Four Horsemen is very cool. It’s very interesting the way that he does that. You know the idea of – the way that cult leaders do – they find people that are in need of something and try to fulfill that thing in them – as it relates to every one of the Horseman… On an individual level he’s able to reveal the true power of his Horsemen and what’s true to them.
