Disney's Nutcracker Movie Brings in Captain America Director for Reshoots
3 hours ago
Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is undergoing some significant reshoots, with director Joe Johnston being brought on to take the helm of these additional scenes. While, lately, a move like this is often a sign that the original director was fired, that isn't the case here, with this new report claiming original director Lasse Hallstrom simply cannot direct the reshoots due to scheduling conflicts. Lasse Hallstrom is not being "sidelined" by this move, and he will still be involved in the post-production process.
Fans who attended Disney's D23 Expo this summer got the first glimpse at The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, with Disney showcasing the first Nutcracker and the Four Realms footage while announcing a November 2, 2018 release date. The D23 Expo presentation featured Los Angeles-based dancer Lil Buck, who hit the stage to demonstrate the kind of street dancing called jookin that informed the way his character moves in the film. »

Annihilation Trailer #2 Is Absolutely Crazy, Terrifying and Trippy
8 hours ago
The first full-length trailer for Alex Garland's Annihilation has arrived and it's truly crazy, along with two new photos. Audiences have been treated to some excellent, sophisticated sci-fi in recent years and those risks studios have been willing to take have really paid off. That's why Paramount is betting on Annihilation, but this really looks like it's going to be something totally unique. Will the risk pay off? Who knows at this point? But this new footage is something you absolutely need to see.
Paramount previously released a teaser trailer for Annihilation, which gave a general sense of what to expect from the movie, but didn't give much in the way of story and was very shy on giving away any of the big visuals. This trailer goes all in on both. We get a sense for this team Natalie Portman is a part of and the strange world »

Salma Hayek Shares Terrifying Weinstein Experience: He Was My Monster
9 hours ago
It's been more than two months since the tidal wave of sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein started surfacing, and now another famous actress has come forward with her story, Oscar nominated actress Salma Hayek. In a gripping first-person account published by The New York Times, the actress reveals how she was asked by reporters to come forward and share her story with others, including her friend Ashley Judd, but the actress revealed she didn't want to share her story then because she was, "trying to save myself the challenge of explaining several things to my loved ones," and since so many others had come forward with their tales of sexual misconduct against the producer, she didn't think anyone would care about her pain.

The Last Jedi Is Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes
11 hours ago
Following the world premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the first press screenings over the past few days, The Last Jedi reviews are in, and they're overwhelmingly positive, easily earning a certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. While the percentage may very well fluctuate between now and the wide release on Friday, Star Wars: The Last Jedi currently stands at 94% on Rotten Tomatoes, with 173 positive reviews and just 11 negative reviews posted thus far. That tally is currently higher than both 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens (93%) and last year's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (85%).
Given the extremely positive Last Jedi early reactions, the Rotten Tomatoes score isn't entirely surprising, but it certainly is encouraging for fans who have waited two long years to see how the story continues after Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The movie has also gotten a positive seal of approval from the »
Justice League Is the Highest-Grossing Box Office Bomb Ever
12 hours ago
They say that numbers don't lie, but that isn't always the case when it comes to the box office. Since its release almost a month ago, Warner Bros.' Justice League has pulled in $212.8 million domestic (10th highest this year overall) and $615.4 million worldwide (12th highest this year), but a new report contends that Justice League has become the "highest-grossing box office bomb" in cinematic history. While that distinction seems oxymoronic at worst, and facetious at best, there is some logic within this notion regarding this Dceu movie.
This report from Forbes claims that Justice League beat out another underperforming movie from this year, Paramount's Transformers: The Last Knight, which posted franchise lows in domestic ($130 million) and worldwide ($605 million), as the "highest-grossing box office bomb." The report clarifies that Justice League won't be the movie that loses the most money, and there's a chance that it still could break even, »
Kingsman 3 Is Still Being Planned by Original Director Matthew Vaughn
12 hours ago
It looks like we're going to get at least one more movie with Eggsy and the Kingsman. Despite the fact that Kingsman: The Golden Circle took a bit of a step back, in terms of box office and critical praise, it made enough money to justify a sequel from Fox. So director Matthew Vaughn reportedly already has plans for Kingsman 3. But will he actually return to direct the third installment?
Visual Effects Supervisor Angus Bickerton recently did an interview to promote the release of Kingsman: The Golden Circle on Blu-ray. During the conversation, he was asked about the possibility of Kingsman 3, which hasn't officially been announced by Fox yet, but sounds increasingly likely. Here's what he had to say about it.
"We've had the briefest of conversations with Matthew [Vaughn] about it...he's got plans."
Clint Eastwood's 15:17 to Paris Trailer Celebrates Real American Heroes
13 hours ago
Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for The 15:17 to Paris, the latest from director Clint Eastwood who takes a different approach to this true story adaptation. Instead of finding the right actors to play the heroes who helped thwart a real-life terror attack on a train bound for Paris, the director cast the real-life heroes themselves, with the heroic trio comprised of Anthony Sadler, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, and U.S. Air Force Airman First Class Spencer Stone. We'll have to wait and see if this unique approach pays off for this harrowing true story adaptation.
From Clint Eastwood comes The 15:17 to Paris, which tells the real-life story of three men whose brave act turned them into heroes during a highspeed railway ride. In the early evening of August 21, 2015, the world watched in stunned silence as the media reported a thwarted terrorist attack on Thalys train »
What Does George Lucas Think of Star Wars: The Last Jedi?
13 hours ago
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is finally about to arrive in theaters this weekend. To say that people are excited about it would be a bit of an understatement. It's tough to match the anticipation we all felt heading into Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but there's a growing sense that this movie is something special. Even though George Lucas isn't involved, it sounds like his legacy is continuing on in a great way. Lucas thinks so too, as he's seen the movie and, reportedly, he really loved it.
The man who created Star Wars recently screened Star Wars: The Last Jedi. According to Connie Wethington, a rep for George Lucas, says that he feels the movie was "beautifully made." That's pretty high praise. He also reportedly talked to director Rian Johnson after the screening and had nothing but nice things to say about his latest entry in the Skywalker saga. »
Frank Oz Teases Yoda Spin-Off Movie, Is It Really Happening?
13 hours ago
Is Yoda getting a standalone Star Wars Story? It sure seems like that might happen. Disney isn't going to stop making Star Wars movies anytime soon. Aside from Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars 9, Rian Johnson is currently working on a new trilogy of movies not connected to the Skywalker saga, there's an Obi-Wan solo movie said to be in the works and possibly a Boba Fett movie. But that'll only get us through a few years. So, what's after that? Could it be a Yoda movie?
Frank Oz was recently interviewed for the director's cut of Little Shop of Horrors. During the conversation, he was asked about the possibility of Yoda, the character he first brought to life in The Empire Strikes Back, getting his own movie. Surprisingly, Oz said that such a thing is going to happen, but he then takes the wind out of the sails rather quickly. »
Venom Eyes Woody Harrelson for Henchman Role
21 hours ago
Although Sony Pictures' Venom already in production, with filming starting in late October, it's never too late to add a new cast member. A new report surfaced today which revealed that Woody Harrelson is in talks to sign on, reportedly to play "a henchman of sorts," although there is no indication that this character has roots in the Marvel Comics, and it remains unclear when we'll find out more about this character. It also remains unclear how many more roles need to be filled out as production keeps rolling.
This report comes just a few days after Tom Hardy confirmed Venom is based on Lethal Protector comics, with the actor adding that this character will be very important for the Marvel Universe, during an appearance at Brazil's Comic-Con Experience last weekend. The actor wouldn't clarify what he meant by "Marvel Universe," if he meant the Spider-Man universe Sony is creating, »
Watch Star Wars Characters Flawlessly Sing 'MMMBop'
21 hours ago
Have you ever wondered what it might be like if a bunch of characters from Star Wars movies sang Hanson's MMMBop? Probably not, but either way, we now know exactly what that sounds like, thanks to a new video released by The Tonight Show. Yes, whether we need it or not, Jimmy Fallon has compiled a video of Star Wars characters singing the 1997 hit song and it sounds exactly how one would think something like this would sound. Is that a good or a bad thing? That's up for you to decide.
The video, titled Star Wars Characters Sing MMMBop, is only 30-seconds long, but it's more than enough time to show that there's enough weird sounds made in the history of the Star Wars franchise to seamlessly recreate the nonsensical chorus, originally performed by Hanson. Yoda, Greedo, Rey, Finn, Jabba the Hutt, Han Solo and dozens of other »

Black Panther International Trailer Is the Best One Yet
12 December 2017 2:07 PM, PST
If you're looking for some new Black Panther footage, this international trailer for the upcoming Marvel movie will scratch that itch. Black Panther is easily shaping up to be not only one of the most anticipated superhero movies of 2018, but one of the most interesting Marvel movies ever released. Now, we have quite possibly our best look yet at T'Challa's first solo entry in the McU, which looks to be totally unique and absolutely action-packed.
There's a lot to love in this new Black Panther trailer. For one, we get our best look at T'Challa's suit in action, as well as a sense of what the suit is capable of. We also get a much better sense for Michael B. Jordan's villain, Erik Killmonger, who we're hoping doesn't suffer the same curse as most Marvel villains. There's also so much going on in this trailer, in terms of new shots and awesome lines, »
