Men in Black Reboot Reunites Thor Stars Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth

Less than a month after Sony's Men in Black 4 brought on Chris Hemsworth to star, the studio has found a familiar co-star for their leading man. Actress Tessa Thompson, who recently starred alongside Hemsworth in the Marvel Cinematic Universe adventure Thor: Ragnarok, has come aboard as the female lead. This new report adds that Chris Hemsworth's deal is still not closed yet, but it's expected to be finalized soon.

Unfortunately, no details were given for either Chris Hemsworth or Tessa Thompson's characters yet, but this project is said to be more of an ensemble piece than a "two-hander," with the story also expected to be more global in scope. Previous reports claimed that the story would be set in London, but that has yet to be confirmed by the studio at this time. Way back in 2015, producer Laurie MacDonald stated that the new Men in Black movie would center

After months of speculation, UK distributor Icon Film Distribution has been sold to home entertainment specialists Kaleidoscope and main investor Schneider Media Investments (Smi), a source has confirmed to Screen.

Mute Teaser Takes Netflix 40 Years Into the Future

Mute Teaser Takes Netflix 40 Years Into the Future
'Berlin. Forty years from today. A roiling city of immigrants, where East crashes against West in a sci-fi Casablanca.' Fans have been waiting for director Duncan Jones's Mute well before his Warcraft adaptation hit theaters. Now, we have our first look, as Netflix unleashes the first teaser. They also promise that a full trailer will be arriving on January 30.

The movie stars Alexander Skarsgard (The Legend of Tarzan, War on Everyone), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man, Anchorman 2), Justin Theroux (The Girl on the Train, The Leftovers) and fresh to the screen Seyneb Saleh. Mute follows last December's Bright as one of Netflix's most ambitious original movies to date. Here's the official synopsis.

How ‘Big Little Lies’ (and Improvised Sex Scenes) Turned Alexander Skarsgård Into an Awards Contender — Career Watch

How ‘Big Little Lies’ (and Improvised Sex Scenes) Turned Alexander Skarsgård Into an Awards Contender — Career Watch
Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors. In this edition we tackle Alexander Skarsgård, who’s advancing his career with a canny combo of studio movies, indie films, and premium television.

Bottom Line: You never know where you stand with Skarsgård, who has the complexity of a character actor beneath the leading-man looks that launched a thousand memes. (Reads one: “Research shows that if you’re afraid of spiders, you are more likely to find one in your bedroom… I’m really afraid of Alexander Skarsgård.”)

His muscular swagger and danger is on display in “The Legend of Tarzan,” but his tender attentions to wife Jane (Margot Robbie) were that film’s throbbing heart. And in the hugely popular and topical HBO drama series “Big Little Lies,” he holds his own with an ensemble of powerful women including executive producer Nicole Kidman, who performs an

New to Streaming: ‘I Am Not Your Negro,’ ‘Three,’ ‘War on Everyone,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Beauty and the Beast (Bill Condon)

The near-ubiquitous familiarity with the majority of Disney animations make the financial proposition of a live-action remake a no-brainer greenlight. In aiming to appeal to those experiencing these stories for the first time, the generation prior, and the generation that brought that generation to the theater, it can also be as creatively risk-averse as one might imagine.

Will Chase Trades Nashville For Hawkins To Join Stranger Things

When Stranger Things landed on Netflix on July 15th, 2016, it took viewers by surprise. Arriving with very little fanfare, its odd combination of pop culture homage, retro aesthetic, and era-specific detail quickly captivated fans, and delivered an extraordinary experience in fantasy-horror storytelling. With just eight episodes, series creators Matt and Ross Duffer built a community within the town of Hawkins, Indiana, and layered it with terrifying darkness. This is the situation that will meet actor Will Chase (Nashville), who has now joined the cast for the second season.

Chase will play new Hawkins resident Neil Mayfield, who has moved to the stricken town with his two children, played by Sadie Sink (American Odyssey) and Dacre Montgomery (Power Rangers). Little is known of their story, beyond the fact that the younger Mayfields will be students at the local school, alongside the children from the first season – played by Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown,

26 Interesting Facts About The Movie “The Avengers”

While the movie Iron Man was the true catalyst to the invasion of the amount of comic book movies you see on the big screen today, The Avengers could be considered equally responsible for the multi-billion dollar comic book franchise cinematic success. By the way I certainly haven’t forgotten about X-Men but X-Men didn’t create nearly as much spinoff box office success as The Avengers has. Think about Thor and the Captain America movies which on their own have grossed billions of dollars. But let’s take a step back to The Avengers for a moment. With Infinity War on everyone’s

Pick of the WeekToni Erdmann

What is it? A professional woman and her oddball father dance around their complicated relationship, both in and out of costumes.

Why buy it? Family dysfunction is a longtime staple in cinema, but no film this year captured it with such humor, warmth, and wisdom as Maren Ade’s third feature. Even at 162 minutes our time with Ines and her oddball father feels far too short as their journey of discovery becomes one we don’t want to see end. There’s an honesty here — yes, even with subtitles — about the way we see ourselves through our loved ones
