Rumour: X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be Fox’s final Marvel movie before X-Men and Fantastic Four debut in Phase Four of the McU

Back in December it was revealed that The Walt Disney Company is in the process of acquiring the film and TV assets of 21st Century Fox, which means that – should the deal go through – the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises will return to Marvel, opening the door for the various comic book characters to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

With the deal not expected to be finalised and approved until mid-2019, the official line from both parties so far has been that it is “business as usual”, and “we’ll deal with it once it’s official”. However, according to a report from Comic Genre (via Bleeding Cool), it seems that both Fox and Marvel have already laid out how they plan to handle the acquisition.

The outlet reports that a number of high-level Fox production crew members attended a college speaking engagement, where it was

Guardians 2 Fails to Capture Lightning Twice: Journey to Infinity War Part 15

Guardians 2 Fails to Capture Lightning Twice: Journey to Infinity War Part 15
It is incredibly difficult to make true cinematic magic happen once. That's what happened with the first Guardians of the Galaxy. Director James Gunn was able to capture lightning in a bottle because these were characters almost nobody knew and there was no expectation, because it was quite plainly impossible to know what to expect. But once you let the lightning out of the bottle, it's pretty tough to recapture it. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a massively entertaining, ambitious movie made with a lot of love, that, despite its best efforts, can't totally capture that same magic again. But still, it's super fun.

As we quickly reach the end of our journey to Infinity War, Guardians 2 comes as an interesting Marvel adventure. The next big Avengers sequel is just days away from release, and there are only this and three other McU movies standing in its way.

Lawrence Kasdan says Solo: A Star Wars Story “is a love story between Han and Chewie”

With a little over a month to go until the film’s release, Solo: A Star Wars Story screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan has been chatting to Empire about the Anthology movie, describing it as a love story of sorts between Han Solo and his companion Chewbacca.

“It’s a love story,” said Kasdan. “Obviously, they don’t automatically trust each other and become friends. But that’s all the meat of a good story. To me, this is a love story between Han and Chewie. Their relationship has always been my favorite part of the saga, and the fact that only Han understands what Chewie is saying, I find a very funny possibility for comedy … Wookiees have so many positive qualities. But what they don’t do is make it easy for you to get in.”

Kasdan has also been discussing what attracted him to the Han Solo origin story, as

New Conjuring Universe Movie Gets 2019 Release Date

Warner Bros. has announced release dates for several movies, including a New Conjuring Universe Movie. The studio has also announced release dates for a new sci-fi comedy from Melissa McCarthy, as well as crime drama from Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan. While the new Conjuring movie may be the most interesting in the bunch for many, it's also the most mysterious at the present time.

This mystery Conjuring movie has been set for release on July 3, 2019. The horror flick will be facing some serious competition, as Sony and Marvel Studios are releasing the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel just two days later on July 5, 2019. Both studios are gunning for a big chunk of the holiday box office. As for what this movie is actually going to be? That's the much more challenging question. Currently, as far as we know, The Conjuring 3 and The Crooked Man, a spin-off based on the

Hannah Fidell’s “The Long Dumb Road’ Acquired by Universal Pics Group

“The Long Dumb Road”

Hannah Fidell’s latest film has found a home. Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Content Group snagged the North American rights to “The Long Dumb Road,” Deadline reports. The road trip comedy made its world premiere at Sundance in January.

Co-written and directed by Fidell, the pic follows a college-bound teen who offers a thirtysomething mechanic a ride during a stop-over in Texas. The unlikely pair share little in common but are both at personal crossroads and find themselves bonding as they travel through the American Southwest.

A day-and-date theatrical and VOD release is planned for November.

“6 Years” and “A Teacher” are among Fidell’s previous features. “It’s been my experience that the indie/festival world is very female-director friendly. It’s those higher-budgeted projects where it seems to be harder to break through,” she told us. The writer-director added, “Even though this will come off

‘Every Day’ Review

Stars: Angourie Rice, Justice Smith, Jeni Ross, Lucas Jade Zumann, Rory McDonald, Katie Douglas, Jacob Batalon, Ian Alexander, Colin Ford, Jake Sim, Nicole Law, Karena Evans, Owen Teague, Maria Bello, Michael Cram | Written by Jesse Andrews | Directed by Michael Sucsy

Based on the 2012 novel by David Levithan, Every Day serves up an intriguing blend of science-fiction fantasy and Ya romance. The film’s unusual conceit comes with a side order of problematic plot points, but the script and the performances ensure that its positive central message wins out.

Directed by Michael Sucsy, the film centres on a spirit known only as “A”, who wakes up every day in a different body, a bit like Sam Beckett in TV’s Quantum Leap. The bodies are always the spirit’s age (around 16) and always within the same geographical area, and A is careful not to meddle too much in the lives of each person he inhabits.

Every Day movie review: a slightly more challenging teen romance

MaryAnn’s quick take… It’s not as daring as its endearing protagonist, and its fantastical scenario plays out rather lifelessly. But its gentle exploration of the fluidity of human physical and emotional expression is very welcome. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for movies about girls and women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

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

(learn more about this)

High-schooler Rhiannon (Angourie Rice: Spider-Man: Homecoming) has a new special friend: A, a soul who wakes up in a different body every day. Always someone of A’s age — also late teens — and someone in the same general geographic area, but never the same person twice. It’s Quantum Leap as a Ya romance, although unlike Dr. Samuel Beckett, who had to change something before he could leap again,

Lawrence Kasdan on what attracted him to Solo: A Star Wars Story

Lawrence Kasdan, the screenwriter behind Solo: A Star Wars Story, has spoken about what it was that attracted him to the movie.

Kasdan, for those who don’t know, is the legendary screenwriter behind multiple Star Wars movies, including The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and The Force Awakens.

Kasdan’s latest foray into Star Wars movies is the Ron Howard directed Solo: A Star Wars Story, penning the script with his son Jonathan Kasdan, and he has recently discussed who Han is in the film and why he was excited by the job to Empire Magazine (via Cbm):

“I was attracted to the idea of how this guy became the cynical on the outside, tender-hearted on the inside person we see in A New Hope. What creates that outer shell of cynicism and what creates that core?”

By all accounts, the Han we first meet in

Sony Pictures and Mattel have tapped the directing duo of Aaron and Adam Nee to helm the He-Man movie “Masters of the Universe,” sources tell Variety.

Escape ArtistsTodd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch will produce with DeVon Franklin.

The property centers on the warrior He-Man, the last hope of a magical land called Eternia. Dolph Lundgren starred in the original pic as the title character, while Frank Langella played the villainous Skeletor.

Lawrence Kasdan discusses his differences with the former directors of Solo: A Star Wars Story

Legendary screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan has commented on the fallout with the ousted directors of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Those plugged into the production process of Solo: A Star Wars Story will be aware that the film now directed by Ron Howard was at one point being filmed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller until the duo were axed over creative differences.

Kasdan, the writer of The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and The Force Awakens, has also penned the screenplay for Solo and has now commented about the differences he had with the former directors, saying that Solo had to change course.

“These movies are so gigantic, it is a little hard to identify exactly what moving part changes when there is a change of direction,” Kasdan told Empire Magazine (via Cbm). “But this movie had to go in a different direction. I’m a great believer

Ron Howard, who has taken over directing responsibilities of Solo: A Star Wars Story, has spoken about his choice to helm the film.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is only a handful of weeks away and fans are eagerly anticipating just how the film will play out, especially considering that movie saw a change in directors halfway through.

Howard, who took over from Phil Lord and Chris Miller after the two were ousted over creative differences, was uncertain to begin with but has revealed that he took the job because he “felt like I could help.”

Speaking to Empire Magazine (via Cbm), Howard said: “I jumped in as a bit of an adventure really, a kind of cinematic adventure for Ron. It wasn’t long before I had fallen completely in love with it, and I feel passionate and connected to this movie as anything I’ve done. It’s been an exciting,

Ron Howard says Alden Ehrenreich is not doing a Harrison Ford impression in Solo: A Star Wars Story

Ron Howard has said that Alden Ehrenreich, the star of Solo: A Star Wars Story was never supposed to be doing a Harrison Ford impression.

As soon as news hit that there would be a prequel movie revolving around a young Han Solo, fans were busy discussing if anyone could possibly replace Harrison Ford.

Ron Howard, the director of Solo, has revealed that they never wanted the actor cast as Han to try and copy Ford, telling Empire Magazine (via ScreenRant) about the thinking behind Ehrenreich’s performance:

“It was always clear from the beginning, before I was involved, that it was not going to be an impression of Harrison. No one wanted that,” Howard said. “Part of Han Solo’s character is sort of a vibe and a feel and a body language.”

Some fans are still worried whether they will be able to accept Alden as Han but

It’s Spidey Vs. Thanos In This International Avengers: Infinity War Promo

Not unlike Steve Rogers before him, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker isn’t one to bow before a bully.

Indeed, it’s that spunky, never-say-die attitude that helped define Spider-Man: Homecoming, the 2017 summer blockbuster in which everyone’s favorite Wall-Crawler took down the Vulture (Aka Adrian Toomes) once and for all.

Fast forward to 2018, and there’s a much more formidable villain on the horizon: Thanos, Marvel’s Mad Titan who is prepped and ready to arm his oh-so-precious Infinity Gauntlet with six of the most precious gems in existence. That is, in a nutshell, the plot underpinning Avengers: Infinity War, but part of what makes Joe and Anthony Russo’s Herculean blockbuster so special – so unprecedented – is its enormous cast, which just so happens to feature Josh Brolin (Deadpool 2) as the aforementioned Mad Titan.

Marvel Phase 4 Will Be Massively Different from Rest of the McU

The Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it is going to end following Avengers 4 next year and, as of right now, not a whole lot has been revealed about Marvel Studios' plans for the future. We know for sure that Marvel will continue making movies that exist within the same universe, but what's that going to look like in a post-Infinity War world? According to director Joe Russo, it's going to look "massively different."

Joe Russo, who co-directs Avengers: Infinity War with his brother Anthony Russo, has been making the press rounds for the highly-anticipated movie. During a recent interview the directors were asked about the McU moving forward. Specifically, how different Marvel Phase 4 will be once Avengers 4 concludes Phase 3 next year. Here's what Joe Russo had to say about it.

"I think massively different. I think that this is if Marvel has been writing a book for ten years,
