BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Tim Burton might be right that the genre always needs to be refreshed, reworked and turned on its ear. But I don’t think the state of the union is quite as dire as he states. Do you?
Star Wars has registered and released several character names for The Force Awakens except one. Who exactly is Captain Phasma?
Benedict Cumberbatch swore he wasn’t playing Khan. Except he totally WAS playing Khan. So now, whenever an actor swears up and down in the press that he isn’t playing an iconic character (mainly a villain), a small B.S. alert pings in the backs of our collective mind.
“The fact that [Star Wars] is so special to so many people … it’s hard to believe you could take something for granted like that,” Mark Hamill tells EW in an interview. Especially when you consider the fact that George Lucas had basically led Hamill to believe that he’d never be Skywalker again.
The bigger question entails whether we need a new Wolverine to factor into X-Men: Apocalypse, and whether the role should be recast. Bryan Singer has revealed that his plot will take place in the 1980s (much like Days took place in the ‘70s), and if they are going after younger versions of Storm and Cyclops, then shouldn’t Logan be younger, as well?
After years of putting in consistently impressive character actor work, J.K. Simmons is finally in the midst of his moment. His insanely intense performance as a drill instructor-like jazz band conductor at a prestigious music academy in Whiplash has earned him a ton of Oscar buzz and the topic of thousands of conversations around Hollywood.
The first trailer for Terrence Malick's The Knight Of Cups has been released and it is just as peculiar and artsy as you'd have thought.
Beetlejuice 2 is building up quite a head of steam. Michael Keaton previously declared that he wanted to reprise the character, and now Tim Burton has insisted that not only are they currently hard at work on a script for the follow-up, but that Winona Ryder will be returning as Lydia Deetz too.
As we saw in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer that was released late last month, there are many sounds out there that we directly associate with the sci-fi franchise – be it the gun fire of a TIE Fighter or the activation of a lightsaber.
Despite the film being titled Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, we haven’t heard a lot of news regarding the Man of Steel’s role. Fortunately, new information has come out spotlighting Clark’s role in the film, as well as several other fascinating plot points.
A rather wonderful 8-minute mashup video of 2014's Best Movies has been released and it might just be the best thing that you've seen all year.
It was a little over a month ago that we learned six of Hollywood’s up-and-coming actors are being considered for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell Not Tales. That role has gone to Brenton Thwaites, but now it’s time to take a look at the actresses who are contending to be the 2017 blockbuster’s leading lady and Thwaites’ love interest.
We hope you Minecraft fans aren't looking too forward to the movie we previously reported was in the works, as it's hit a big snag. After the jump, find out why Shawn Levy left the project, and what his movie would have looked like.
If you have children or at the very least spend a good amount of time near children, then there is a very good probability that you have heard the Oscar-winning song "Let It Go" from Walt Disney Animation's Frozen. After all, the film was a ridiculously huge smash hit when it was released last year, and we are still seeing the impact today.
I’m legitimately comforted by the fact that the ultra-serious dude from Foxcatcher -- the guy who appears like he could snap my neck like a twig – sends hilariously pompous emails to his friends and colleagues when he’s experiencing a true upbeat moment in his professional life.
Lois Lane may not seem impressive compared to all the superheroes appearing in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, but don’t just dismiss her. The intrepid reporter will have an especially important role to play in the film.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies meets every definition of giant blockbuster, and like its predecessors in the trilogy, it will be released in both 3D and 2D formats. But, of course, the question always loomed: is the extra dimension worth the extra money for the ticket?
Production on the latest James Bond film, Spectre, is underway. And we have your first look at some on set footage right here.
For LAPD Sgt. John Spartan, the future is a perplexing setting, full of new rules, social etiquette and technology to adjust to. That includes the mystery of the three seashells, which have somehow replaced toilet paper in the futuristic setting of the 1993 film Demolition Man. How exactly do the three seashells work?
Yet another day in the Sony Hack scandal of 2014, and apparently the Men in Black/22 Jump Street film crossover they’d like to see happen. There's also one in store for Quentin Tarantino
The CCMAs are selected by critics, and have no direct influence on the Oscars. But as I mentioned in the last episode of Awards Blend (our weekly Oscar podcast), recognition by groups like SAG and the BFCA only help a film’s Oscar campaign, and an omission by a key organization like the BFCA can damage a campaign (or, at the very least, set it back).
Paramount has released 5 names of directors it is pursuing for Star Trek 3. You'll be interested to see who is--and isn't--on the list.
Co-directors Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan tried to do something more with the premise, making it a semi-scathing satire of the entertainment industry. The co-directors were red hot, coming off of Can’t Hardly Wait, and they coached a few scene-stealing performances out of Parker Posey and Alan Cumming.
Angelina Jolie wasn't able to make it to the LA Premier of her latest directorial project, Unbroken, and it wasn't because of embarrassment over leaked Sony emails.
The movie-accurate Mark XLIII Collectible Figure is highly detailed and specially crafted based on the image of Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Mark XLIII in Avengers: Age of Ultron, featuring a newly painted Tony Stark helmeted head sculpt, metallic red, gold and silver armor with weathered effects, LED light-up functions, and a specially designed diorama base.
