Avengers: Infinity War Laid The Perfect Seed For Nova’s McU Debut

There are so many Infinity Stones for Thanos to get his hands on in Avengers: Infinity War that, to save some time, he already has one when the film begins. We’re briefly told by the God of Thunder that the Mad Titan grabbed the Power Stone when he “decimated” Xandar last week. Star-Lord and co. look particularly hurt by this, as they previously saved the planet from devastation back in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy.

What’s significant about Thanos’ attack on Xandar, though, is that it’s home to the Nova Corps, the interplanetary police force. Seeing as they’re nowhere to be seen in Infinity War, we imagine the Mad Titan has severely depleted their numbers. Which means that the film might just provide the perfect origin story for Richard Rider Aka Nova.

Fred Armisen, Tim Heidecker and John C. Reilly heading to Moonbase 8

Following its first foray into television with Comrade Detective, A24 has now announced the new six-episode comedy series Moonbase 8 from Fred Armisen and Jonathan Krisel (Portlandia), John C. Reilly (Wreck-It Ralph) and Tim Heidecker (Tom Goes to the Mayor).

The series will see Armisen, Heidecker and Reilly starring as three subpar astronauts living in Nasa’s Moon Base Simulator in the desert with high hopes of being the next chosen to travel through to the moon.

“Moonbase 8 is pure comic genius and we are thrilled to be a part of this show from the ground up,” says A24. “We can’t wait to introduce this fearless group of astronauts as they prepare to go where several people have gone before…but not as hilariously.”

A24 is independently financing the first season of the show, and production is now underway. A network will be sought once the episodes are completed.

Quentin Tarantino and Tom Hardy Excite at CinemaCon, But Sony’s 2018 Slate Feels Oddly Familiar

Sony would like you to know it’s committed to originality. That was the message reiterated by its executives at the studio’s CinemaCon presentation Monday night — and no one was more passionate than chairman Tom Rothman, who spoke of the studio’s “increasing dedication” and “commitment” to the concept.

However, Rothman presided over a show-and-tell that included Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly doing their “Step Brothers” schtick in “Holmes and Watson” as Sherlock Holmes and Mr. Watson (tagline: “The World’s Greatest Dicks”); “Hotel Transylvania 3,” Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween,” “Equalizer 2,” “Sicario 2,” “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” Marvel’s “Venom,” remakes of “Superfly” and “Miss Bala,” “The Girl in the Spider’s Web,” and teasing mentions of 2019 titles “Men in Black 3,” the still-untitled “Spider-Man: Homecoming” sequel, and “Jumanji 2.”

Many of these films looked appealing; the CinemaCon audience at the Caesar’s Palace Colosseum particularly responded to “Venom,” with Tom Hardy

Will Ferrell Steps Out Post-Car Wreck to Hype ‘Holmes and Watson’
Will Ferrell is on the mend and hyping his latest comedy.

At the Monday night opening gala of CinemaCon 2018 in Las Vegas, the annual convention of movie exhibitors, Ferrell stepped out belting Celina Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On,” a nod to the forum at Caesar’s Palace Hotel and Casino.

Not only did Ferrell seem in perfect spirits after being involved in a serious auto wreck last week, he said he won $50,000 playing roulette in the hour he spent wandering the floor.

2019 Oscars: Best Supporting Actor Predictions

2019 Oscars: Best Supporting Actor Predictions
At this point, many are ready to hand the Oscar to “Black Panther” star Michael B. Jordan, given Killmonger’s status as the most layered Marvel villain thus far.

While last year brought the battle of the mothers at the Oscars, a series of fathers could compete in 2019. Matthew McConaughey plays the father of the youngest FBI informant ever in “White Boy Rick.” Steve Carell is the beleaguered dad of a young drug addict (Timothée Chalamet) in “Beautiful Boy.” In “Boy Erased,” Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman are the Baptist parents of an outed gay teen (Lucas Hedges) who battles his conversion therapist (writer-director Joel Edgerton).

It will be the battle of the Scorsese vets in “The Irishman,” as Harvey Keitel, Joe Pesci and Al Pacino vie for supremacy in more ways than one.

Oscar-winner Sam Rockwell could be back in the race as George W. Bush in Adam McKay’s “Backseat,

2019 Oscars: Best Actor Predictions

2019 Oscars: Best Actor Predictions
Of the films we have already seen, Chadwick Boseman buffed his stardom in the lead role in Marvel blockbuster “Black Panther,” while Joaquin Phoenix took home Best Actor at Cannes as a brutal killer trying to save a young girl from the sex trade in “You Were Never Really Here.”

Returning Oscar winners will likely include “The Irishman” star Robert De Niro –who last scored a Supporting Actor nomination for “Silver Linings Playbook” in 2013 — and “The Old Man and the Gun” veteran Robert Redford, who won his last (honorary) Oscar in 2002.

Up-and-down shape-shifter Christian Bale gained 40 pounds to play Dick Cheney in Adam McKay’s “Backseat”; Ryan Gosling also takes on an iconic figure, moon-walking astronaut Neil Armstrong, in Damien Chazelle’s “First Man”; bearded Willem Dafoe follows up last year’s nomination for “The Florida Project” as Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh in Julian Schnabel’s “At Eternity’s

Will Ferrell Hospitalized Following Car Crash, Is in Good Spirits
Comedian and actor Will Ferrell was taken to the hospital last night after the SUV he was riding in was side-swiped by another car. The SUV was completely flipped on its roof, with the crash happening on the I-5 freeway at around 11 Pm last night. The actor was one of three people in the SUV, which was being driven by a chauffeur, with the actor returning from a Funny Or Die event in San Diego, where he appeared as his Anchorman character, Ron Burgundy.

The actor didn't suffer any serious injuries, as a video taken from the scene, which you can see below, shows the actor in good spirits, talking on his cell phone while laying on a gurney and being lifted into an ambulance. Sources revealed this morning that Will Ferrell was released from the hospital and that he's doing well, having not suffered any serious injuries. However, witnesses

Peter Dinklage’s ‘O’Lucky Day’ Taps ‘Filth’ Director Jon S. Baird (Exclusive)
Jon S. Baird has closed a deal to direct the Legendary Entertainment comedy “O’Lucky Day,” with Peter Dinklage in negotiations to star.

The film follows a career con man who poses as a leprechaun in an elaborate scheme of vengeance.

The movie was originally set up at Paramount, but Legendary quickly picked it up when the studio’s rights to the pic expired.

Dinklage is currently shooting the final season of his hit HBO series “Game of Thrones.” He was recently seen in Fox Searchlight’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Dinklage will also star in the HBO film “My Dinner With Herve” and play a key role in Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War.”

‘The Child in Time’: Kelly Macdonald on Benedict Cumberbatch’s Heartbreaking Performance That Left Her ‘Tearful’

Before tackling her challenging role in PBS’ “The Child in Time,” Kelly Macdonald was thrilled to be able to work through scenes with her co-star Benedict Cumberbatch. In the adaptation of “Atonement,” author Ian McEwan’s novel, the actors portray couple Julie and Stephen Lewis, who suffer a heartbreaking loss when their child goes missing.

“We were really privileged to be able to have rehearsal time beforehand which doesn’t always happen,” Macdonald said in an interview with IndieWire. “We talked through all the scenes… It’s always really helpful if for nothing else than to get to know your co-star a little bit when you have to play quite intimate scenes. That’s quite helpful. If it’s a stranger on Day One, it’s a bit more difficult.”

All the Money in the World (Ridley Scott)

The bar has never been lower for Ridley Scott. Depending on how charitable you are willing to be to the director, he has been in a slump for either one, two, or three decades. And then, of course, there are matters outside of his control: with a finished All the Money in the World in hand and ready for a prestigious Christmas release,

Cannes Lineup Predictions: Will Women Directors Gain Ground?

Cannes Lineup Predictions: Will Women Directors Gain Ground?
Cannes kicks off nine days earlier this year, on May 8, but the official lineup announcement remains under wraps until April 12, which means the guessing games are already underway. Jake Gyllenhaal (“The Sisters Brothers”), Riley Keough (with three films in the mix), and Juliette Binoche are all expected to walk the red carpet, while directors Alfonso Cuarón (“Roma”), David Robert Mitchell (“Under the Silver Lake”), and Harmony Korine (“The Beach Bum”) are well positioned to screen in competition for the first time.

Half a century after the historic 1968 edition when Jean-Luc Godard, François Truffaut, and a generation of politically engaged French youth brought Cannes to a halt amid nationwide demonstrations, Europe’s most glamorous film festival once again finds itself at a crossroads. From the international success of “Wonder Woman,” which debuted five days after the festival last year, to the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, the world is a much different

The Bad Guys coming to the big screen courtesy of DreamWorks Animation

DreamWorks Animation has enlisted screenwriter Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder, Men in Black 3) to pen an adaptation of award-winning author Aaron Blabey’s bestselling Scholastic book series The Bad Guys.

Variety reports that the film will revolve around “four “bad guys” — Mr. Wolf, Mr. Shark, Mr. Snake, and Mr. Piranha — who, after growing tired of others screaming and running away from them, decide to become a force for good… despite their affinity for being bad.”

The synopsis for the first book in the series reads:

“They sound like bad guys, they look like bad guys… and they even smell like bad guys. But Mr. Wolf, Mr. Piranha, Mr. Snake, and Mr. Shark are about to change all of that. Mr. Wolf has a daring plan for the Bad Guys’ first good mission. They are going to break two hundred dogs out of the Maximum Security City Dog Pound. Will Operation Dog Pound go smoothly?

Oscars: 8 Actors in Two or More of This Year's Best Picture Nominees
When the best picture award is presented at this year's Oscars, only one of the nine nominated films will be crowned the winner, barring a tie or a repeat of last year's shocking La La Land and Moonlight mix-up.

But a number of actors have two or more chances to cheer for their costars. Timothee Chalamet, Lucas Hedges and Bradley Whitford are just some of the stars who appear in at least two of this year's best picture nominees, giving them multiple rooting opportunities.

Our Five Favorite Animated Characters That John C. Reilly Voiced

John C. Reilly is a hilarious comedic actor in person but as a voice actor he’s just as funny since he gets to go just as crazy and be himself in a way that sparks that kind of nutty behavior that you’ve come to know him as. In other words he becomes a larger than life character in animated movies, letting loose in a way that he doesn’t always do when he’s in a live action movie. He hasn’t been in a lot of animated movies at this point but his resume is starting to build just slightly as he
