BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Thanos has popped up in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe just twice so far, but his presence has loomed large, as fans have been teased and promised further interactions between the monstrous villain and the famous ensemble of superheroes. And with Avengers: Age Of Ultron tantalizingly close to release, the big question now is will Thanos appear in the sequel?
Hey Cyndi Lauper. Why haven’t they started filming The Goonies 2 yet? Because the script isn’t “good enough! For you it’s … good enough."
In addition to this year featuring many outstanding leading men roles, we have also seen some truly incredible smaller character work from actors like J.K. Simmons, and Edward Norton. That being said, the Golden Globes have made the mistake of failing to nominate the true best supporting actor performance of the year.
In case you couldn't already tell, Thanos is kind of a big deal in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only is he an incredibly powerful intergalactic warlord, but he has already orchestrated some major events and has demonstrated huge plans for the future.
As Thanos, Josh Brolin is playing one of the scariest, most intimidating figures in the Marvel Universe. Even more than the fact that he is humungous physically and possesses incredible influence throughout the galaxy, the Mad Titan also eventually possess powers that give him the ability of a god. He inspires quite a good deal of fear wherever he goes – and weirdly enough that even extends to Josh Brolin.
Because The Goonies celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon started with sequel talk. Brolin played along, but emphasized that these conversations happen every couple of years.
Josh Brolin conducted an AMA this morning, which is chock full of fun and witty comments from the man himself. Yet buried in that wit and warmth is a challenge for one of Earth's mightiest heroes. Folks, it looks like the man of iron is going to face the mad titan, all for our own amusement!
Now that the summer season is coming to a close, we can start turning our attention towards the fall and, specifically, awards season. And there's some amazing stuff coming down the pike. The next few months will be delivering new titles from filmmakers like David Fincher, Christopher Nolan, Bennett Miller, and Ridley Scott - but right now we're going to focus on the latest feature from Paul Thomas Anderson.
Josh Brolin's late addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Thanos has not only given Marvel some more A-list talent to play with, it's given them some more artistic feedback as to where they should head next in their Phase 3 preparations. And boy, does Brolin have some suggestions they're gonna love!
This seems like a fantastic assemblage of talents, especially giving the Coens a few familiar faces, and some exciting new players (like Tatum and Fiennes) who are proving capable of comedy in movies by the likes of Wes Anderson, Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
The Coen brothers remain on an incredible role, and while they have leaned toward drama the past few times out, it sounds like Hail Caesar will be closer in tone to Burn After Reading, a slap-sticky farce that bites the hand that feeds the filmmaking duo.
Next year just added a new must-see movie to its lineup: the thriller Sicario. This film, directed by Denis Villeneuve, stars Emily Blunt as a cop who recruits two tough mercenaries on a journey into Mexico to stop a drug lord. Earlier, Benicio Del Toro signed on to the project, and now another heavy hitter is about to join the cast, bringing his specific brand of machismo with him.
The report specifies that Brolin will be “voicing” Thanos in Guardians Of The Galaxy, which means the guy is likely still gonna be shrouded in darkness in the coming film.
Should Pratt sign on for the project, he will join a cast that already includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson (of the indie hit Kings of Summer) and Ty Simpkins (a.k.a. the kid from Iron Man 3). Also in talks to join the project is Irrfan Khan, but got a taste of blockbuster exposure with a key role in The Amazing Spider-Man last year.
I’m no Oldboy purist. And if a studio wanted to bankroll an Oldboy remake, I can absolutely see handing it to Spike Lee, who has dabbled in dark, violent genre films from time to time.
Based on the Joyce Maynard novel, Labor Day stars Kate Winslet as Adele, a melancholy single mother whose desperate and lonely life is given an unexpected ray of hope when an escaped convict takes her and her teen son Henry hostage.
This latest featurette appeals to those who crave a mesmerizing performance, by showing all the work Oldboy star Josh Brolin had to do behind the scenes to go from schlubby mess of a man to a lean and mean man on a mission.
A few details are starting to surface, confirming what we’ve floated. While Variety acknowledges that plot details are “unknown” for Trevorrow and co-writer Derek Connolly’s script, the trade does report that Simpkins and Robinson will play siblings, leaving us to think that Howard and Brolin (if they land the roles) could play parents in the movie.
Spike Lee's Oldboy remake may look alarmingly similar to the Korean original. It may require its own screenwriter to defend its existence in front of a Comic Con crowd. But if the movie has anything going for it over the 2003 Park Chan-wook original, it's Elizabeth Olsen. And good for them for recognizing that and highlighting her in this newly released clip
Josh Brolin Confirms He Was In The Running For Batman, But Wouldn't Want To Be Ben Affleck Right Now
A ton of actors were rumored for a while there to be next in line for Batman's cowl, but one of the most popular picks always seemed to be Josh Brolin, star of No Country for Old Men and this year's Gangster Squad who seems to have that world-weary Bruce Wayne thing going for him without even trying. "Josh Brolin would be EPIC as Bruce Wayne/Batman" was just one of the comments when we rounded up the casting rumors
