‘Literally, Right Before Aaron’ Trailer: Justin Long Goes To Cobie Smulders’ Wedding

43 minutes ago

For quite some time Justin Long has been the face of the middling romantic comedy genre. The actor has led a string of relatively low-profile films about down on their luck dudes pining for lost loves and manic pixie dream girls (“Going The Distance,” “A Case Of You,” “Comet”). But while Long-fronted pictures haven’t always fared well (“Comet” was at least interesting), he has mostly managed to remain a welcome, if quantifiable presence, thus giving us reason to remain hopeful for his upcoming dramedy “Literally, Right Before Aaron,” which pairs him with the delightful Cobie Smulders.

‘What Happened To Monday?’ Offers The Silly Fun Of Seven Different Noomi Rapaces [Review]

1 hour ago

“What Happened to Monday?” evokes a rote dystopian future to concoct an intriguing premise for a psychological thriller, making one wish the filmmakers had jettisoned the half-baked social commentary and just embraced the silly concept. However, even in a future bereft of new ideas, it’s fun to watch Noomi Rapace act against herself six times over and her game performances in the midst of fast-paced action make “What Happened to Monday?” a mostly enjoyable thriller.

Porn Site Offers To Produce ‘Sense8’ Season 3

2 hours ago

Earlier this year, Netflix pulled the plug on “Sense8” after two seasons. But after fan petitions and outcry, the streaming service made a deal to let the Wachowskis produce a two-hour series finale, to wrap things up. However, another streaming service, in a very particular niche, is extending an olive branch to the show’s creators to keep “Sense8” going.

xHamster has penned an open letter, offering to produce a third season of “Sense8.”  Lana Wachowski recently revealed she was going ahead and writing the a new season, and the porn site is offering to be the admittedly unconventional home for the sci-fi show.

Claire Denis is currently filming her highly anticipated, very ambitious sci-fi “High Life” starring Robert Pattinson, but while we wait, she has something else to share. Earlier this year, the revered filmmaker knocked out “Bright Sunshine In,” and within a matter of months, had it ready in time for the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight.

Michael B. Jordan To Star In ‘A Bittersweet Life’ Remake

4 hours ago

There haven’t been a whole lot of American remakes of South Korean films, but the most high profile was easily Spike Lee‘s “Oldboy.” His take on Park Chan-wook‘s audacious thriller missed the mark, for a variety of reason, but primarily because Lee just couldn’t put his own stamp on the material the way the South Korean filmmaker did. Now, another cult favorite is gearing up for a Hollywood redo, and if history is any indication, caution is advisable.

Patty Jenkins Making Superhero Sized Deal For ‘Wonder Woman 2’

4 hours ago

To put it bluntly, Patty Jenkins saved DC Films.

Warner Bros.’ plan to emulate Marvel with their own comic book universe had a very rough start. “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” and “Suicide Squad” were both costly critical failures, and while we can argue about the merits of their box office returns, the bottom line is the brand value really took a hit.

Marvel’s ‘The Punisher’ Trailer: Justice Is Coming

5 hours ago

Frank Castle, aka The Punisher, made his Netflix debut in season 2 of Marvel’s “Daredevil.” In that series, Castle was seen as a brutal force of nature that would stop at nothing in his quest for justice. What separates him from the other heroes in the Marvel Universe is that his form of justice normally includes horribly maiming people and killing them. Fans instantly loved Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of the character and wanted more.

‘One Percent More Humid’ Trailer: Juno Temple & Julia Garner Star In Tribeca Film Festival Award Winner

19 hours ago

From the renowned writer-director of the not-good 2013 Kristen Bell vehicle “The Lifeguard” comes “One Percent More Humid.” With a stacked cast including Juno Temple, Julia Garner, Alessandro NivolaMamoudou Athie, and Maggie Siff, “One Percent More Humid” could be interesting. Although reactions from its Tribeca Film Festival premiere were far from glowing, the film did pick up a Best Actor trophy for Nivola’s turn.

‘The Only Living Boy In New York’ Is A Lacklustre Coming-Of-Age Dramedy [Review]

20 hours ago

Allan Loeb certainly isn’t a household name, but there’s a pretty good chance you’ve might’ve seen one or two of his credited movies. Whether it’s “21,” “The Switch,” “The Dilemma,” “Just Go With It,” “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” “Rock of Ages” or last year’s regrettable “Collateral Beauty,” just to name a handful, Loeb is one of those screenwriters who’s quick to diversify his resume but never able to prove his skills.

Ralph Fiennes Eyed For ‘The Goldfinch’

So, how much does Hollywood want to get involved with the adaptation of Donna Tartt‘s Pulitzer Prize winning “The Goldfinch“? A major studio is going to work with a streaming company to make it happen. Warner Bros. is teaming up with Amazon to co-finance the film, with the former getting the theatrical rights, and the latter the streaming rights, as you would expect. Not only that, there is some real star power circling the picture.

Will Ewan McGregor‘s wish finally come true? The actor has spent years saying he’d gladly return to play the wise Obi-Wan Kenobi should the opportunity ever arise, and perhaps that time is now. After lots of chatter and rumor mill churning, things are finally beginning to happen.

THR reports that development has started on a “Star Wars” spinoff movie focused on Obi-Wan Kenobi. The most surprising news is that Stephen Daldry (“Billy Elliot, “The Hours“) is in early talks to direct and oversee development on the movie.

Both Kate Mara and Miles Teller said they would return to make another instalment. Meanwhile, Toby Kebbell said fans were right to be disappointed, but praised director Josh Trank‘s darker vision of the movie that didn’t making it out of the editing bay.

‘Inhumans’ Director Talks “Super-Tight” & “Nerve-Wracking” Production Schedule

17 August 2017 10:59 AM, PDT

Marvel movies are protected by Kevin Feige, who has managed to find the right of letting the creative talents on each project shine, while also serving the necessary requirements of the brand. Things at Marvel’s TV division are quite different. Quality has varied wildly across their shows on ABC, Netflix, and FX and they still follow the playbook of many other programs on the small screen.

17 August 2017 9:59 AM, PDT

Now that the Academy has honored Emma Stone with a much-deserved Oscar for her performance in “La La Land,” she has become a hot commodity and, if advanced buzz is any indication, her performance as Billie Jean King in this fall’s upcoming “The Battle of the Sexes” might land her another nomination.

So it comes as no surprise that in Forbes’ recently released list of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses she figures very high up on the list.
