Women Take Spotlight In Amazon’s Anti-Hero Series ‘The Boys’ – Comic-Con
Before moderator Aisha Tyler kicked things off for Amazon’s The Boys panel she called out anyone who brought their kids to Ballroom 20 for the panel because it is a very “adult” anti-hero superhero series — and she dropped an F-bomb for good measure.

The series is based on the comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson and is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes – who are as popular as celebrities – abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super-powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven.

Universal Stuck in Court With 'Fast and Furious' Producer
Neal Moritz will be able to openly litigate his claim that Universal Studios has breached an oral agreement for Hobbs & Shaw. On Monday, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge rejected Universal's contention that the dispute belonged in arbitration.

Moritz takes credit for being one of the driving forces behind the blockbuster franchise based on The Fast and the Furious and alleges that he spent a year and a half working on the forthcoming spinoff starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham before he was ultimately booted from the film.

Paramount Pictures is pushing its “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie back three months, from Nov. 8 to Valentine’s Day.

The delay follows fan criticism over the appearance and design of the titular blue hedgehog — particularly his teeth and lean legs.

Director Jeff Fowler tweeted that it was “taking a little more time to make Sonic just right.”

The Art of Racing in the Rain Trailer: Kevin Costner Is Enzo the Race Car Dog

The first trailer for 20th Century Fox's The Art of Racing in the Rain is finally here. The movie is based on the 2008 novel of the same name by Garth Stein and the movie has been in development for quite a while now. Stein's book was a New York Times Best Seller for 156 weeks and sold over 4 million copies globally. A big screen adaptation was quickly announced by Universal in 2009, but the project never got off of the ground. It wasn't until 2016 when 20th Century Fox took over on the rights that the ball finally started rolling.

The Art of Racing in the Rain is a heartfelt tale narrated by a witty and philosophical dog named Enzo, who is voiced by Kevin Costner in the movie. The story follows Enzo and his best friend and owner, Denny Swift (Milo Ventimiglia), an aspiring Formula One race car driver, as they

Every time your dog sticks its head out of the car window as you’re driving, just imagine him talking like Kevin Costner. The Oscar winner lends his voice to Enzo, a Golden Retriever, in the 20th Century Fox film “The Art of Racing in the Rain.”

The film’s story is told through the eyes of that adorable pup, who looks after his owner, played by Milo Ventimiglia, and his owner’s bride-to-be, played by Amanda Seyfried. But he also waxes poetic about his own dreams to live like a human and be a racer himself.

“Call it fate, call it luck. All I knew was I was meant to be his dog,” Enzo says in the trailer. “The best drivers don’t dwell on the future or the past. The best drivers focus only on the present.”

Hold On, Cannes! Female-Fronted ‘Cliffhanger’ Reboot Climbs With Ana Lily Amirpour
Exclusive: Twenty six years after the iconic original debuted at the Cannes Film Festival, Neal Moritz’s (The Fast And The Furious) awaited reboot of hit action-thriller Cliffhanger is heading to the Cannes Marché where it will be among the buzziest projects on sale.

In a zeitgeisty twist, the reimagined, big-canvas package will have a female lead — casting is underway — and a female director in the shape of Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night). Aquaman star Jason Momoa is talks for a key cameo.

Rocket Science will launch international sales on the hot prospect in Cannes after prizing rights away from StudioCanal in a competitive situation.

TV Review: ‘The Boys’

  • Variety
In the first episode screened at the Tribeca Film Festival, Amazon’s new superhero series “The Boys” exhibits a fair bit of promise — as well as some frustrating tendencies. The best aspects of the pilot are all rooted in world-building, in thinking through a universe in which superheroes were actual celebrities, and monetizable at that. The worst pop up through a tendency to oversell the cynicism of such a universe, to work overly hard to convince us some of the characters we’re only just meeting are disgusting and corrupt.

Based on an ultraviolent comic book series, “The Boys” depicts its heroes as motivated not by the desire to help humanity but by a craving to help themselves to its spoils. Indeed, their exploits can end up causing serious harm, as when the hero A-Train (Jessie Usher), moving recklessly at super-speed, runs literally through the body of Robin (Jess Salgueiro
