The Coen Brothers western series The Ballad of Buster Scruggs to begin production in July

48 minutes ago

Back in January it was announced that the Coen Brothers are heading to the small screen to write and direct the Western anthology series The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, and now The Playlist is reporting that production on the miniseries is set to begin next month in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is being produced by Annapurna TV and will explore how “the stories of six individuals weave together in the old West at the end of the Civil War.”

While the project marks the Coens’ first TV project, they do have previous experience in the western genre, having directed the True Grit remake, along with the Oscar-winning modern day western No Country for Old Men. »

Jar Jar Binks lobbies Ron Howard for role in the Han Solo Stars Wars spinoff in latest Funny or Die video

1 hour ago

Earlier in the week it was announced that Phil Lord and Chris Miller had been fired from the Han Solo Star Wars spinoff film due to creative differences. Essentially, they had gone way too far down the comedic route, which honestly should have been expected when they were hired, but I digress.

Everyone on the Internet has an opinion and they’re letting it be known on the news that Ron Howard will be taking over directorial duties on the project. And now, in a new Funny or Die video, an anonymous being that is totally not Jar Jar Binks is asking us to give the director a chance. This unknown person also thinks this movie is the perfect opportunity to bring back Jar Jar Binks. Check out the hilarity below…

Watch the trailer for Albert Pyun’s Interstellar Civil War

2 hours ago

A trailer has arrived online for Interstellar Civil War, the 54th film from cult director Albert Pyun (The Sword and the Sorcerer, Cyborg).

“I was always curious about the behind the scenes aspect of the power of a space opera,” states Pyun. “My idea was to make a Sci-Fi Galactic version of Lion in Winter or A Man for All Seasons. To explore the human perspective behind all the war and mayhem in a futuristic galactic Empire sounded fascinating. I was influenced by some of the great historical films of the 60’s, 70’s, and 90’s, particularly Ridley Scott’s director’s cut of Kingdom of Heaven. I thought that a rebellion and crisis that erupts in the all-powerful Imperial Galaxy was an excellent basis to study the underlying politics in a real way and the terrible cost of a conflict, any conflict, actually. I wanted the movie to explore how »

Titan to launch its new Fighting American series on Joe Simon’s birthday

7 hours ago

Back in April it was announced that Titan Comics is resurrecting the classic Joe Simon and Jack Kirby comic book Fighting American for a brand new series, and now the publisher has announced that the first issue will arrive on October 11th, 2017 – the date of Joe Simon’s birthday. Take a look at the cover to the first issue from Terry Dodson and Rachel Dodson here…

First published in May 1954 and originally written and drawn by two of the greatest names in the history of comics, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, Fighting American was the embodiment of the homegrown, god-fearing, patriotic, apple pie-eating American superhero.

Where Simon and Kirby’s other patriotic hero, Captain America, socked it to the Nazis in World War II, Fighting American brought square-jawed justice to “the Commies” and villains such as Double Header, Hotsky Trotsky, and Round Robin!

Throughout their long partnership, Simon and Kirby »

Wonder Woman becomes highest-grossing live-action movie from a female director

10 hours ago

Having become the first female filmmaker to direct a movie with a budget of $100 million, and the first to have a movie debut with a domestic opening weekend of $100 million, Patty Jenkins has now added another feather to her cap with Wonder Woman’s latest box office milestone.

The DC blockbuster has now reached $615 million worldwide, meaning it has overtaken 2009’s Mamma Mia! to become the highest-grossing live-action movie from a female director. The overall record is currently held by Jennifer Yuh Nelson and the animated film Kung Fu Panda 2 on $665 million, which Wonder Woman will likely overtake in the coming weeks (it should also be pointed out that Jennifer Lee co-directed Frozen with Chris Buck, and then went on to gross $1.2 billion).

Domestically, Wonder Woman has already surpassed Man of Steel’s $291 million, and is looking to finish the weekend with around $319 million, meaning it is fast approaching »

First Spider-Man: Homecoming reactions hit the web, suggest another winner for Marvel Studios

11 hours ago

Marvel fans can breathe a sigh of relief! The first string of reactions from press members who have seen Spider-Man: Homecoming at an early screening have hit the web (no pun intended), and they claim that the summer blockbuster is a rip-roaring, crowd-pleasing good time.

Praise, in particular, is being directed towards the film’s John Hughes-inspired tone, diverse cast and Tom Holland, who many have described as the best on-screen Spider-Man yet. Even despite Marvel Studios’ spotty track record with compelling antagonists, Michael Keaton’s Vulture has been described as one of the stronger Marvel Cinematic Universe villains. Overall, if the previous three Spider-Man solo films (Spider-Man 3, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man) were examples of Spidey at his worst, Homecoming sounds like a return to form for the web-slinger. See the hugely positive reactions for yourself down below…

First look at Peter Dinklage and Jamie Dornan in HBO’s My Dinner with Hervé, Mireille Enos and more join cast

13 hours ago

Game of Thrones isn’t the only project Peter Dinklage is lending his talents to over at HBO, as the network has unveiled a first-look image of the actor in My Dinner With Hervé.

The upcoming TV movie takes a look at the life of Fantasy Island and The Man with the Golden Gun star Hervé Villechaize (described as “the world’s most famous gun-toting dwarf” by HBO), who took his own life in 1993. Check out the image, which features co-star Jamie Dornan (50 Shades of Grey) as struggling writer Danny Tate alongside Dinklage’s Villechaize, below…

Being perhaps the most accomplished and celebrated dwarf actor of all time makes Dinklage a good choice to fill Villechaize’s shoes, although it’s worth noting that Dinklage isn’t of Filipino and English descent like his counterpart.

My Dinner with Hervé is set during “one wild night” in Los Angeles, just days before Villechaize’s suicide, »

How to Save the Dark Universe

14 hours ago

Harrison Abbott on how Universal can save the Dark Universe

Whilst its international take is admittedly surpassing its domestic performance by quite some way, it is still reasonable to suggest that The Mummy hasn’t been the mega-hit that Universal were hoping for. Weighed down by astonishingly clunky exposition, countless instances of tonal whiplash and a certain high profile ego to contend with (not to mention that embarrassing PR blunder with the trailer audio), the film has been the deserving subject of bad word of mouth and a relentless onslaught of critical maulings. Suffice it to say, it has been something of a rocky journey for the first instalment in the fledgling ”Dark Universe”.

In case you need catching up to speed, this Dark Universe is essentially the latest attempt to revive all of Universal’s classic movie monsters. Many efforts have been made in the past to reboot these characters, »

Lucasfilm were right to hire a new Han Solo director, but it’s their fault, not Lord and Miller’s

15 hours ago

Samuel Brace on Lucasfilm’s director shake-up on the Han Solo Star Wars movie…

Let’s start off by saying that no one likes to see people lose their jobs, and I’m sure that Phil Lord and Chris Miller did a very good job directing the movie they wanted to make. However, by looking at the evidence available, Lucasfilm were totally right to let them go and bring in a new Han Solo director. With that being said, this is their fault, not that of Lord and Miller’s; this bed they have made for themselves.

So, why was it the right decision to pursue a new director, resulting in the hiring of Ron Howard?


1) Han Solo isn’t a comedic character

When the story first broke, we heard that creative differences were why Lucasfilm decided to part ways with Lord and Miller, and as more details came out, »
