Are These Really the Most Dateable Movie Characters?

just now | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

So it's Valentine's Day and you get to go on a date with any modern movie character -- who do you pick? According to over 1,000 movie fans polled by Fandango, this year's most date-able movie characters have something in common: they're both Marvel superheroes and they both starred in the same 2015 movie: Avengers: Age of Ultron. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) topped the list, perhaps because they're both fierce fighters and seductively mysterious. (Well that, and he looks good with his shirt off and she looks good in tight black outfits. That doesn't hurt either.) Both Thor and Black Widow beat out some hefty competition in the form of Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), Rey (Daisy Ridley), Captain America (Chris Evans) and James...

Ewan McGregor Leads A Starry Cast In First Trailer For Espionage Thriller Our Kind Of Traitor

19 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though it may have wrapped production in mid-2014, Susanna White’s espionage thriller Our Kind of Traitor has struggled to make some headway in its would-be path to the silver screen. Fast forward to now, and with a UK release date penciled in for early May, we’ve arrived at the film’s intense first trailer.

Lifted from John le Carré’s titular novel, White’s adaptation has enlisted a starry cast to bring le Carré’s work to life. Headlining the ensemble as Perry and Gail are Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris, a quiet and unassuming English couple who are pulled into an international crime caper upon meeting with Stellan Skarsgård’s charming stranger.

But in the world of le Carré’s fiction, charming strangers are best kept at arm’s length, with the debut Our Kind of Traitor revealing Skarsgård’s character as the master puppeteer behind the Russian mob. »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens production company prosecuted over Harrison Ford on-set accident

11 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The UK’s Health and Safety Executive is prosecuting the Star Wars: The Force Awakens production company Foodles Production (UK) Limited – a subsidiary of Disney and Lucasfilm – over the on-set accident that left Harrison Ford with a broken leg.

The BBC reports that the Hse has brought four criminal charges against the company, having found sufficient evidence during an investigation into the incident to charge the company with alleged health and safety breaches. The case will be heard at High Wycombe Magistrates Court on May 12th.

The accident occurred in June 2014, with a hydraulic door on the Millennium Falcon falling on the actor, fracturing his leg and leading to production being suspended for two weeks. Ford then returned to work in the August following his recovery.

First Trailer For John le Carré Adaptation ‘Our Kind of Traitor’ Starring Ewan McGregor

11 February 2016 5:25 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Shot back in mid-2014, we’ve been waiting for the latest John le Carré adaptation for some time, and now we finally have news on when at least some audiences can see Our Kind of Traitor. Led by Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgard, Damian Lewis and Naomie Harris, it’ll hit U.K. theaters on May 6th and today brings the first trailer.

Directed by Susanna White (Boardwalk Empire, Generation Kill) and adapted by Hossein Amini (The Two Faces of January, Drive), it follows a couple drawn into a dangerous game of international espionage, caught between a money-launder, the Russian mafia, the British government, and a ruthless MI6 agent. After A Most Wanted Man was well-received, hopefully this follows it up strongly. Check out the trailer, synopsis, and batch of images below.

Will 'Thor 3' Kill Off a Another Major Marvel Character?

10 February 2016 4:32 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As we get closer and closer to a summer production start on Thor: Ragnarok, rumors have been flying about what may happen in this highly-anticipated sequel. Last month, an unconfirmed report revealed that Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett has signed on to play the main villain, Hela, who will shake things up for the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in Asgard. Today we have yet another unconfirmed report from Latino Review, which claims that a beloved character may be killed off in this sequel. There will be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

Last month's report claimed that Hela, who, in the Marvel Comics, is the ruler of Hel and the realm of Niflheim, will be portrayed very closely to the comics, with Hela donning a cloak and wielding power over the undead in all Nine Realms. The report also claimed that Hela will join forces with Loki, »

Tin Foil Hat Alert! This 'Star Wars: Rogue One' casting title is veryyyyyy suspicious

10 February 2016 2:55 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Like desperate First Order troopers crash landed on a desert planet searching for water, Star Wars fans are thirsty for any news related to Rogue One. And much like the desert planet metaphor, there’s just enough to keep us from dying…but not enough to feel full. Today’s drop of life-giving Rogue One waters comes from the movie’s IMDb page. Now IMDb can be a font of information, or it can be dastardly liar. Which will it be today? Who knows! But it looks like Jedi could be appearing in the film. So far we know very little about the merry band that makes up the Rogue One team or what their skill sets are. Since it’s Star Wars first foray into the heist genre, it’s safe to assume everyone has a very specific job to do…and they’re probably the best at what they do. »

No Thanos, Infinity Stones In Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vol. 2

10 February 2016 2:42 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

Filming on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 begins this week, and director James Gunn has already dropped some hints regarding the highly-anticipated sequel’s plot – specifically, that Thanos and the Infinity Stones will not factor in to the story at all.

Thanos – the death-obsessed Titan who first appeared in 1973’s Iron Man #55 – made his film debut in a post-credits scene of 2012’s The Avengers. Since then, he’s been positioned as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s “big bad,” appearing briefly in Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Age of Ultron. His quest for the Infinity Stones – gems of limitless power and shifting form that have appeared as MacGuffins in the McU for years – is expected to take him to earth in the two-part Avengers: Infinity War, where he will finally battle the titular superhero team.

Marvelous DA7E: Deadpool and Cable and the Soul Stone

10 February 2016 12:50 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This week, Deadpool will be unleashed on the masses (that are old enough to get into an R-rated movie) after what seems like an awful long time in development.

For more details on how X-Men: Origins Wolverine and the terrible, horrible mess it made of the Wade Wilson character, I point you to the inaugural Los Fanboys Latino-Review podcast which has a great interview with Rob Liefeld and a discussion about Deadpool (as well as hot takes on the week’s most recent movie news, as you’ve come to expect).

Until Deadpool is something everyone’s gotten to see, best to not spoil the nitty gritty, the call backs or discuss the mystery of something called Feige’s Pizzeria appearing in the movie. Seeing as how Marvel Studios had nothing to do with it. I guess it’s now fair game to poke at the other megafranchise, which »

Captain America: Civil War – 10 McU-Shattering Outcomes That Fans Want To See

10 February 2016 12:38 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

The next massive Marvel crossover movie, Captain America: Civil War, is just around the corner. Anticipation of the movie has been consistently fervent from day one, with no shortage of theories doing the rounds regarding what the superhero bust-up movie might entail.

The reason for this is simple: fans know that Civil War is going to be a big one. Superheroes have had the occasional fracas on the big screen before, but never at this magnitude. In the comics, the superhero Civil War had devastating effects for lots of characters, and everyone’s expecting the same from Joe and Anthony Russo’s filmic adaptation.

Following on the shady government conspiracies of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Quicksilver’s death in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Marvel Studios will use Civil War to show us that being a superhero isn’t always fun and games. Sometimes it’s a deadly, »

'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Won't Tie Into 'Avengers: Infinity War'?

10 February 2016 12:10 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last night, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn held an impromptu Q&A session on his Facebook page, where he answered questions for nearly an hour through a live video feed. We know production will begin soon in Atlanta, with Marvel already setting a May 5, 2017 release date. There is very little we know about the story thus far, but one of the most interesting tidbits he shared is that there will be no Infinity Stones featured in the sequel.

"We're not really so much about the Infinity Stones in Guardians 2. Is that a spoiler? It's not really a thing."

As of now, four of the six Infinity Stones have been revealed, but it isn't known when the last two will come into play. The Space Stone was the Tesseract, which is currently housed in Asgard, with the Mind Stone currently serving as a power source for Vision. The »

Possible Spoiler Regarding A Major Character's Death In Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok

10 February 2016 7:16 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

All we know for sure about Thor: Ragnarok is that it will feature the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth) teaming up with Bruce Banner/The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and some end-of-days stakes will be involved - everything else we've heard so far has been unconfirmed rumor. That said, even before all of the speculation we knew there was a very good chance our heroes would be taking on Hela (possibly played by Cate Blanchette), and according to Latino Review those stakes will be raised considerably when she kills one of Thor's best pals, Heimdall (Idris Elba). This makes sense when you consider the fact that Thor had a vision of his friend in the Underworld after his little dip in the fairy pool (or whatever that was supposed to be) in Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Fans will not be happy to see this character go, but don't worry too »

Exclusive Lr Rumor: Expect Big Things From Heimdall in Thor: Ragnarok [Spoiler]

10 February 2016 7:13 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There's been a lot of discussion online about death in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ever since Thanos was told that challenging Earth was courting death at the end of 2012's Avengers, the McU has been building to a climax. Right now, it looks like Phase 3 will be that climax, with movies closing out the story arcs of the first round of Avengers leading into Avengers: Infinity War.

Right now, Thor: Ragnarok is the McU Phase 3 movie that is actively finishing up pre-production. Chris Hemsworth is returning as Thor who, will team up with Mark Ruffalo's Hulk to face Cate Blanchett's Hela, who threatens not only Asgard, but the entire universe. In the comics, Hela is a goddess and ruler of the spirits of the dead, and the event of Ragnarok kills and resurrects the gods, so it's a fair assumption that not all the stars of the Thor »

Pinewood Group Considers Sale in Light of ‘Robust Growth’

10 February 2016 6:23 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Europe’s largest production facilities company, Pinewood Group, which has housed pics such as “Spectre” and the latest “Star Wars” franchise, is mulling over a potential sale as part of the company’s strategy for growing the business.

The company said that following a period of “robust growth” in film revenues it was now “appropriate to evaluate alternative opportunities to maximize value for the company’s shareholders and to build on Pinewood’s success to date.” The board said that it believed “there is a requirement for a funding strategy to be in place to fully realize the company’s future potential.”

Pinewood has hired Rothschild to carry out a “strategic review of the overall capital base and structure, which could include the sale of the company,” it said. The company’s current market value sits at £250 million ($362.8 million), and share prices spiked nearly 18% in early trading following news of the potential sale. »

Johnny Depp to star in The Invisible Man reboot

9 February 2016 10:45 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having brought in Tom Cruise a couple of weeks back to star in The Mummy, it looks like Universal are looking to go after Hollywood’s ‘big guns’ for their Monsters Universe, as Deadline are reporting that Johnny Depp has signed to star in The Invisible Man.

There’s no word yet on a director for the movie, but Alex Kurtzman (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) is overseeing the whole universe and will direct The Mummy, which is set for release on June 9 2017. The Invisible Man will join Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula, Creature From The Black Lagoon and The Wolf Man before they all come together for a team-up movie, rumoured to be Van Helsing.

No word yet on whether Depp will play The Invisible Man, but it assumed he will.

Cruise and Depp are not the only big names on Universal’s hitlist, with Scarlett Johansson (Avengers: Age of Ultron »

Study: Female Protagonists On the Rise in Hollywood But the Majority Are White

9 February 2016 10:19 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Maybe it’s the post-“Hunger Games” effect, but the likes of Katniss Everdeen, Rey, and the Black Widow are making some dents in Hollywood’s glass ceiling. But it’s not good news for everyone.

Though the number of female protagonists in major films trails that of men, women comprised 22% of leads in the top 110 grossing films, 34% of major characters, and 33% of all speaking characters, according to research by the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University. The number of protagonists was a 6% increase from last year, as well as a recent historical high. The number of major characters and speaking parts represented increases of 5 and 3 percentage points.

The study’s results were calculated as a number of female-driven films such as Amy Schumer’s “Trainwreck,” the erotic drama “Fifty Shades of Grey,” and Disney’s live action “Cinderella” enjoyed strong box office results. »

This episode opens where last week's left off, with Oatmeal facing a series of Scylla and Charybdis–like challenges that won't stop until the episode is over. On one side of the strait is Charybdis — I mean Olivia, who will destroy his entire life with her patented brand of crazy. She's different. She's confident. She likes reading books in her room and thinking. Oatmeal is unable to see the swirling whirlpool of Olivia, and decides to let her keep her rose throughout this Rose Ceremony. Homer would have written it differently, but he's dead.While the soundtrack from Avengers: Age of Ultron plays, it's time for the Rose Ceremony. There's only two non-balayaged brunettes left: Caila and Jennifer. Unfortunately for Jennifer, she hasn't had a lot of time with Ben, so she is sent home. Caila, Lauren B., Jojo, Becca, Twin, and Leah all get roses. I found myself again asking, »
