Netflix’s grimy little corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has really flourished in the past couple of years, with all the leading heroes now preparing to team up in 2017’s The Defenders. Meanwhile, the big-screen side of the MCU is still chugging along nicely, with all their leading heroes set to come together in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War. But could the Defenders ever make the leap to the movies? According to Marvel chief Kevin Feige, it’s a matter of “timing.” Read More »

John Wick Chapter 2 details

The John Wick: Chapter 2 trailer released earlier this month promised more of everything we loved about the first John Wick: intense action, stylish visuals, and Keanu Reeves being an all-around badass. But that doesn’t mean we should just expect a retread of the last film, stresses Chad Stahelski. The director suggests he’s taken a page out of the Aliens playbook by going in a different direction with the sequel. Read More »

Han Solo Donald Glover Lando Calrissian

Disney’s Han Solo spinoff has found its Lando Calrissian.

Glover joins Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!), who was announced to play Han Solo at Star Wars Celebration a few months ago. See the Han Solo Donald Glover announcement below.  Read More »

Brie Larson Captain Marvel director

Captain Marvel was first announced in 2014, but it won’t hit theaters until 2019, which is why progress on the film has felt like such painfully slow going. Still, Marvel took a very encouraging step forward this summer when they confirmed Brie Larson as the lead superhero. Now the next big task will be locking down a director, which Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige says they’ll do by the end of the year.

In a new interview, he explains why it’s taken them so long to find a Captain Marvel director, and what to expect from the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first solo leading female superhero. Here’s a hint: he describes Carol Danvers a.k.a. Captain Marvel as “by far the strongest character we’ve had.”  Read More »

Amy Adams in Nocturnal Animals trailer

The new Nocturnal Animals trailer is so decadently gorgeous, you’d think it was a Tom Ford ad. And, well, technically it is — but it’s not for one of his fragrances or clothing lines. Nocturnal Animals is the new film by Ford, the fashion designer who made his feature directing debut on A Single Man.

This one stars Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal as a divorced couple who’ve been estranged for many years. But their shared past comes rushing back to the forefront when Edward sends Susan a manuscript of his latest novel, a dark thriller about a family assaulted one night on a deserted West Texas road. Cutting between Susan’s life and the story in Edward’s novel, Ford weaves together a riveting tale of love, betrayal, and revenge. Watch the Nocturnal Animals trailer below. Read More »

Barry teaser trailer

In the final year of his presidency, Barack Obama has been the subject of not one but two movies about his formative years. The first, Southside With You, premiered at Sundance and opened in theaters in August. The second, Barry, landed a few weeks later at TIFF and is now headed to Netflix before the end of the year.

Set in the early 1980s, Barry picks up with a young Barack Obama just as he’s embarking on his junior year of college at Columbia University. The tricky task of playing Obama goes to Devon Terrell, an Aussie actor whose only major screen credit to date is a failed HBO pilot, and by all accounts he acquits himself quite nicely. Also starring are Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) as his college girlfriend, Ashley Judd as his mother, and Ellar Coltrane (Boyhood) and Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton) as some of his friends. Watch the Barry teaser trailer below.  Read More »

Doctor Strange Agents of SHIELD connection

For the most part, Marvel’s movies and Marvel’s shows operate independently of one another. Characters rarely move between them, and it’s certainly possible to enjoy one side without paying any attention to the other. Still, they all technically belong to the same continuity, and every once in a while, they like to remind you of that fact. Like right now. With Doctor Strange approaching theaters, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has revealed a mystical link to the movie.  Read More »
