Sony Working On ‘Spider-Man’ Spinoff ‘Silver Sable And The Black Cat,’ Paramount Developing R-Rated ‘The Pro’

1 hour ago

Get ready, there’s another comic book movie universe Hollywood is hoping to make you care you about. With Marvel‘s operation running like a well-oiled, money making machine, and DC Films stumbling along, now Sony is getting into the mix. The studio reboots Peter Parker this summer with “Spider-Man: Homecoming” (with a little help from Marvel) and you better believe they are not wasting a moment in creating an expanded universe.

Sterile ‘4 Days In France’ Is Perhaps Too Intellectual For Its Own Good [Nd/Nf Review]

16 hours ago

Given the sheer volume of films coming out of France, a handful are inevitably going to slip through the cracks and unjustly open to little fanfare at splashy international festivals. This appears to have been the case for Jérôme Reybaud’s fiction directorial debut, “4 Days in France,” which had an under-the-radar debut in a Venice sidebar and now receives its North American Premiere at New Directors/New Films, a festival programmed precisely to spotlight such unsung features.

The Rebellion Continues As ‘Rogue One’ Ending Meets The Beginning Of ‘Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope’ In New Video

17 hours ago

With “Rogue One: A Star Wars” story landing on digital this week, we’re surely on the cusp of tons of supercuts and video essays about the prequel/spinoff, but perhaps the most important one has already emerged.

Vimeo user Barre Fong (who will hopefully not incur the wrath of Lucasfilm) has connected the ending of ‘Rogue One’ with the beginning of “Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope,” and it’s pretty damn seamless.

‘Logan’ Director James Mangold Talks Franchise Fatigue & The Problem With Blockbusters

18 hours ago

When James Mangold decided to make “Logan,” he knew that this would be a superhero film unlike any other before it. “Logan” was always going to be the final Wolverine film, and with that in mind, the story didn’t have to set up any future films or fall into any fixed continuity. According to Mangold, films that are beholden to continuity and setting up future films (i.e. every film from Marvel Studios) are glorified “two-hour trailers,” and the director has zero interest in making a film like that.

Michael Shannon In The Mix For Cable In ‘Deadpool 2’

19 hours ago

It’s been a long, sometimes rocky road to “Deadpool 2,” but it looks like things are starting to roll more smoothly. Fans got a very early teaser/short sketch film to hold them over for now,  and the movie has finally found a Domino in Zazie Beetz. However, Cable remains another big character to cast, and a new name has entered the mix for the role.

Alan Tudyk Talks Alternate Fate Of K-2So & Original Ending Of ‘Rogue One,’ Ditched Backstory For Jyn Erso’s Mom Revealed

20 hours ago

It seems in the Lucasfilm writers’ room, no idea is a bad idea, but obviously, not everything can be used. Rather than fight the speculation about the reshoots and development process of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” everyone involved has gladly shared plenty of stories about the directions the spinoff/prequel didn’t take, and a couple more interesting tidbits have landed today.

First up, Alan Tudyk has revealed that his android, the smart-mouthed K-2So, originally met a different end in the early versions of the film.“Yeah, I got shot by Krennic,” he told Collider.

Olivier Assayas & Kristen Stewart Talk The Making & Mysteries Of ‘Personal Shopper’ & More On ‘Charlie Rose’

20 hours ago

Divisive movies are often the most interesting to discuss, and “Personal Shopper” certainly fits the bill. The latest from “Clouds Of Sils Maria” team Olivier Assayas and Kristen Stewart took home Best Director at the Cannes Film Festival last year (tied with Cristian Mungiu for “Graduation“) and has been praised by many, but there have been just as many voices who didn’t roll with the movie.

The 10 Best Films Of 1992

21 hours ago

Continuing our year-by-year series of the Best Films of the 1990s (here’s 1990, and 1991), we come to 1992. This was the year in which the Maastricht Treaty was signed, bringing the currently Brexit-hounded European Union into being; and in the U.S., a billionaire businessman running for president lost to a Clinton. But lest that makes you look back on the year with nostalgia from your jaded 2017 viewpoint, don’t forget it was also the year of the Rodney King riots.

Full Length Trailer For ‘Fargo’ Season 3 Brings Robbery & Romance

21 hours ago

Well, I’ve started watching the second season of “Fargo” this week to prepare for the third, and I know that doesn’t make any sense since they’re not connected. But I’m just trying to get into the flavor of the hit series (particularly after I bailed on season one), which is shaping up to deliver its biggest and maybe best batch of episodes yet.

Double Ewan McGregor leads the ensemble this time around, with Carrie Coon, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Michael Stuhlbarg, David Thewlis, and more all bringing their talents to the table.

Boot Up The First 5 Minutes Of ‘Ghost In The Shell’ Plus New Clip & 4 New Featurettes

22 hours ago

The controversy continues to bubble around what some are calling white-washing when it comes to the live action remake of “Ghost In The Shell.” Based on the beloved anime, the casting of Scarlett Johansson has raised concerns in some quarters, but one person who is not having it is Mamoru Oshii, the director of the original film.

“What issue could there possibly be with casting her?” he told IGN.

The Cast Of ‘Love Actually’ Is Back In Teaser For ‘Red Nose Day’ Sequel

22 hours ago

For the romantically and/or rom-com inclined, the news that the cast of “Love Actually” will be back in a semi-sequel was quite welcome. However, there’s two parts of the ensemble who won’t be returning: the late Alan Rickman, and his on-screen partner in Richard Curtis‘ film, Emma Thompson.

“Richard wrote to me and said, ‘Darling, we can’t write anything for you because of Alan’, and I said, ‘No, of course, it would be sad, too sad.’ It’s too soon.

Stylish First Trailer For Adam Wingard’s ‘Death Note’

23 hours ago

The debate rages on about whether Netflix is saving cinema or destroying it, but those in the former camp will certainly want to point to “Death Note” to bolster their argument. The streaming service picked up “The Guest” and “You’re Next” director Adam Wingard‘s film after Warner Bros. dropped it last year, and whether or not the DC Films studio will regret it remains to be seen.

Ivan Reitman Weighs In On Paul Feig’s ‘Ghostbusters,’ Says More Franchise Movies Planned

23 hours ago

Last year’s “Ghostbusters” reboot wasn’t the massive hit that the studio and filmmakers were hoping for. No matter your thoughts on the finished product, the film just didn’t make enough money to warrant a sequel. But that’s not deterring producer Ivan Reitman from keeping hope alive. He’s not just planning to continue the “Ghostbusters” franchise with another movie, he’s planning on multiple movies.

“We jumped into an animated film [after the last movie] and we are developing live-action films.

‘Spring Breakers’ Digital Series In The Works

22 March 2017 6:28 AM, PDT

While “Spring Breakers” might not be Harmony Korine‘s most button-pushing movie, it brought a watered-down version of his filmmaking brand to his widest audience yet, thanks to the canny casting of James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, and Ashley Benson. The concept itself was pretty simple — beautiful young women get into trouble on spring break — and producers have been eager to try and milk it for more for years.
