Fox’s Gambit movie now looking to start shooting in June

20th Century Fox’s Gambit movie suffered its latest setback in a seemingly endless series of setbacks in January when it was announced that director Gore Verbinski (The Lone Ranger) had followed in the footsteps of both Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) by exiting the project.

As a result, Fox pushed back the planned March production start date for the X-Men spinoff, as well as its latest release date for February 14th 2019.

The film, which – if it ever gets made – will star Channing Tatum as Remy LeBeau, is now scheduled to arrive on June 7th 2019, and according to Omega Underground, Fox is now looking to get cameras rolling on June 19th in New Orleans.

If Fox is confident enough to set a start date, then one would have to assume the studio also has a new director on board for the film.

Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth Are Re-Teaming for “Men in Black” Spinoff — Let’s Talk About Pay

Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok” co-stars Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth are reuniting for another big budget project. Thompson is in talks to join Hemsworth in Sony’s “Men in Black” spinoff, Variety reports. This casting news is an opportunity to raise some important questions about pay equity.

The original 1997 sci-fi comedy starred Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones as agents of a secret organization — known as the Men in Black — formed to protect Earth from aliens. If Thompson and Hemsworth are co-leads in the pic, it only makes sense for the “Men” part of the title to change. But we’re left wondering if that’s all that’s going to be updated.

Now is the time to examine the quote system, which is how paydays in Hollywood are determined. The system is inherently sexist because quotes are based on the success of an actor’s last film — and if

Zazie Beetz & Dakota Johnson in Talks For Armie Hammer Thriller

Deadpool 2‘s Zazie Beetz and Fifty Shades‘ Dakota Johnson are in talks to join an as-yet untitled thriller starring Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name), which is being planned for release this time next year. Though he’s perhaps best known for his action roles in movies like The Lone Ranger and The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Hammer has been making waves in smaller, independent projects lately, including Boots Riley’s much buzzed-about upcoming satire Sorry to Bother You.

Gringo movie review: Mexican bland-off

MaryAnn’s quick take… Woefully undeveloped characters, a thin yet convoluted plot, and a lack of humor in the black comedy. This is what it looks like when a hastily scribbled first draft goes straight into production. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto) women’s participation in this film

(learn more about this)

So this is what it looks like when everyone just goes, “You know what? This first draft of the script is great! Let’s just run with it.” This is almost always a bad idea, but especially so in this case, because the Gringo that we got from screenwriters Anthony Tambakis (Jane Got a Gun) and Matthew Stone (Soul Men, Man of the House) feels like what might have happened when they sketched out a rough outline of their “brilliant” idea — “What

Disney's 'A Wrinkle in Time' and 'Black Panther' Compete for the Weekend's Top Spot
After a record-breaking February saw calendar grosses top $1 billion for the first time ever, March is hoping to maintain that momentum. Although, last weekend's new releases didn't exactly blow the doors off, but Disney and Marvel's Black Panther kept things moving along and with the film entering its fourth weekend in release it faces its first true test for the #1 spot at the weekend box office. Interestingly enough, it's another Disney title serving as the challenger as A Wrinkle in Time looks to top the weekend's list of newcomers, which also include The Hurricane Heist, Gringo and The Strangers: Prey at Night. At the top of the box office it's a two horse race. On the one hand, Disney and Marvel's Black Panther is looking to become the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to top the weekend box office in its first four weekends. On the other hand,

‘Black Panther’ Oscars spotlight: Behind a great superhero movie are great women below the line
Black Panther” has received abundant praise, including for its wide-ranging, multi-dimensional female characters who get to drive the story and don’t just exist to motivate male characters. I echo all those sentiments about warrior Okoye (Danai Gurira), spy Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), scientist Shuri (Letitia Wright) and queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett). But I was just as excited as the end credits rolled to see that Marvel and director Ryan Coogler put their money where their mouth is by hiring women in prominent roles behind the scenes, and I don’t think it’s too early to highlight their accomplishments as worthy awards contenders for 2018.

The film is distinguished by its excellent cinematography, production design, costume design, makeup and hairstyling, and editing, and while it’s still too early to anticipate how this film will compare to the rest of 2018’s films I can safely say “Black Panther” would be

That is why she finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people like her to use their bodies and minds as weapons.

Red Sparrow Super Bowl Teaser Exposes a Deadly Secret

20th Century Fox has debuted a sneak peek at their upcoming Red Sparrow trailer that will be released this coming Sunday during the Super Bowl, while also releasing a new poster. The preview is only seven seconds long, but it reveals that Jennifer Lawrence's character Dominia Egorova saw something she wasn't supposed to see, the murder of a man in a parking garage, and because of this, she was given just two choices: die or become a "Sparrow." We'll have the full trailer on Sunday after it airs during the Super Bowl, but this preview comes exactly one month before the March 2 release date, arriving in traditional and IMAX theaters.

William Fichtner in Official Trailer for Domestic Thriller 'The Neighbor'

"What were you doing in my house?" "I heard a scream." Vertical Entertainment has debuted the official trailer for a low-key thriller titled The Neighbor, from director Aaron Harvey. The indie drama stars the very talented character actor William Fichtner (last seen in 12 Strong, Elysium, The Lone Ranger, Drive Angry, The Dark Knight) as a reserved man stuck in a stagnant marriage whose life is upended when an attractive young woman and her husband move in to the home next door to them. The cast includes Jessica McNamee, Jean Louisa Kelly, Michael Rosenbaum, Colin Woodell, and Erich Anderson. I can't tell if there's a big twist in this, but it seems like a solidly engaging friendly-neighbor thriller. Check it out. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Aaron Harvey's The Neighbor, direct from YouTube: A middle-aged man (William Fichtner) in a stagnant marriage becomes voyeuristically obsessed with an

Armie Hammer Back on Twitter ''Like a Phoenix Rising From the Ashes''

Guess who's back, back again on Twitter? That would be Armie Hammer. The 31-year-old Call Me By Your Name star had quit the social network in late November, just after BuzzFeed published a scathing opinion article about him titled "Ten Long Years of Trying to Make Armie Hammer Happen." When asked at TheWrap's Screening Series why he left Twitter, "This is a toxic environment, and my life is way better off." The actor, also known for past roles in The Social Network and The Lone Ranger and who was recently nominated for his first Golden Globe, returned to the social network on Friday night, tweeting, "Like a Phoenix rising from the...

10 Things About Back to the Future 3 You Never Knew

10 Things About Back to the Future 3 You Never Knew
Michael J. Fox suggested it would be fun to visit the Old West and the final installment in the Back to the Future trilogy was born. It's Back to the Future Part III, the movie that gave us a "Mad Dog" and a happy ending for Dr. Emmet Brown. Today, we look at 10 things you missed in Back to the Future Part III.

The Paradox script.

Despite the cliffhanger ending, there were originally no real plans for a Back to the Future sequel. However, once the studio became dead set on making one, director Robert Zemeckis and co-creator Bob Gale agreed to come back to make it. Conceived as a single sequel, a script called Paradox contained elements that were eventually split into II and III. Paradox remained the working title for the sequel shoots and parts of that script were used in the novelizations of the two movies.

No guts no glory Oscar predictions: Go ahead & laugh at me for picking ‘Wonder Woman,’ ‘Star Wars,’ ‘Valerian,’ and …
I tend to be a fairly conservative Oscar pundit. I don’t go out on many limbs or rely on gut instinct. I try to do the math as objectively as possible based on the most reliable awards season precursors, which is why my predictions accuracy is 100% every year — trust me, no need to fact-check that. But occasionally I will still follow a hunch or two — or five. The following are my top seven biggest hunches that, according to our racetrack odds, I’m completely wrong about.

Woody Harrelson (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Best Supporting Actor — The controversial film has been surging, most recently winning top honors at the SAG Awards. Harrelson didn’t make many appearances on the awards scene for this performance early on, but he got in where it counts: at SAG and the BAFTAs. Those awards are bestowed by the same kinds of industry professionals who voted on the Oscars,

Gore Verbinski Exits as Director of Channing Tatum’s X-Men Spinoff ‘Gambit’

Gore Verbinski Exits as Director of Channing Tatum’s X-Men Spinoff ‘Gambit’
Gore Verbinski has decided against directing “Gambit,” Channing Tatum’s X-Men spinoff for Fox, sources said Thursday.

Verbinski left the project due to creative differences, sources told Variety.

Tatum is producing with partner Reid Carolin through their Free Association production company, along with Simon Kinberg. “Gambit” has been in development for several years at Fox with Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman previously attached as directors. Wyatt departed in October 2015, while Liman left in August 2016.

Tatum closed his deal to star in and produce “Gambit” in 2015, shortly after appearing at Fox’s Comic-Con panel with the cast of X-Men.

The Gambit character was created in 1990 by Chris Claremont and Jim Lee. An expert card-thrower, the New Orleans native has the ability to mentally create, control, and manipulate kinetic energy. Also known as Remy LeBeau, his weapons include a staff and a deck of playing cards. Gambit first appeared on the big screen in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” portrayed

You've Seen Armie Hammer Many Times Before, But Call Me by Your Name Is His Best Work So Far

  • BuzzSugar
Call Me by Your Name is the most talked-about love story of the year, and deservedly so; it's an aesthetically beautiful, tender love story. The movie works so well because of a lyrical script, adapted from André Aciman's novel of the same name; the sumptuous vision of director Luca Guadagnino; and perhaps most importantly, the chemistry of its leads, Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer, who play Elio and Oliver. While Chalamet may be less recognizable to you (though perhaps not for long), Oliver is played by Armie Hammer, an actor who's been around for several years with high-profile roles. Despite his considerable résumé, though, Call Me by Your Name may be the movie that makes him more of a household name - and earns him award recognition.

Why Is Channing Tatum's Gambit Budget So Insanely High?

It looks like Gambit is going to be a potentially very expensive movie. Despite some uncertainty, now that Disney is officially purchasing most of 21st Century Fox, it looks like Channing Tatum's long-gestating X-Men spin-off is still going into production this March and won't be tabled as a result of the Disney merger. One of the last superhero movies being made before Fox folds into the Mouse House is possibly going to be one of the more expensive ones the studio has made, if some newly revealed budget details are to be believed.

According to a new report, it looks like Gambit may cost $155 million to make. The shoot is said to last for 10 weeks in New Orleans and will start this March. $155 million is incredibly expensive, especially for a character that hasn't yet proved to have appeal for wider audiences. Though, Gambit has been a fan-favorite character to
