Bridget Jone's Baby

The onslaught of sequels won’t end with summer. Fall brings a whole new batch, including Bridget Jones’s Baby. Fifteen years after the first film, Bridget (Renée Zellweger) is a little older, a little wiser, but no less prone to getting into awkward scrapes. More specifically, she’s dealing with a surprise pregnancy and two potential fathers. In one corner, there’s Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), the former man of her dreams. In the other, there’s Jack Qwant (Patrick Dempsey), a charming American suitor.

Our gal is left to figure out which one is the biological father of her child — as well as which one she wants to be with happily ever after. Watch the Bridget Jones’s Baby trailer below.

Josh Trank exits Star Wars

Two weeks ago, a man walked into the Pulse gay club in Orlando and began firing his gun. By the time his spree was over, 49 people had been killed and another 53 injured, making it the deadliest hate crime ever committed against LGBTQ people in the U.S. as well as the deadliest mass shooting overall in our history. Survivors, their loved ones, and their communities are still reeling from the loss. But one man is hoping to honor the victims in an unusual and moving way.

IGN editor Joshua Yehl is asking Disney and Lucasfilm to memorialize the victims by introducing the first-ever LGBTQ Star Wars character, to be inspired by his best friend Drew Leinonen — a massive Star Wars fan and one of those killed in the attack.  Read More »

Doctor Strange and Wong

The first trailer for Marvel’s Doctor Strange introduced many of the key players including Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor), and the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton). One we haven’t seen yet, though, is Wong, played by Benedict Wong.

In the comics, Wong is Strange’s sidekick and valet as well as a master martial artist himself. But expect some big changes in the movie version. “I’m certainly not going to be the tea-making manservant,” the actor teased in a recent interview.  Read More »

Justice League logo 700x300

Earlier this month, our own Peter Sciretta visited the set of Warner Bros.’ Justice League and returned with hopeful reports of a movie with more heart and a more colorful personality than the divisive Batman v Superman had. But as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. So today, we’ve got some art for you to feast your eyes on.

A new bit of Justice League concept art has been revealed thanks to the digital HD release of the Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition, and it offers a better look at the whole gang: Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), the Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). Check it out below. Read More »

Fargo tv show logo

Fargo‘s second season premiered about a year and a half after its first season did, and Fargo‘s third season won’t arrive until 2017. And assuming we ever get a Fargo season four, the wait might get even longer. Series creator Noah Hawley says he may take a page out of the Louie playbook and just ignore the calendar, delaying new seasons of Fargo until he gets a really good idea for another one.  Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Joshy trailer

Cersei’s wild gambit may be getting all the attention this morning, but last night also marked the season finale of HBO’s other great saga about power and manipulation, Silicon Valley. The good news is that the season ended on a high note — season three has been its best to date and the finale was every bit as hilarious and tragic as the episodes that have come before it. The bad news is that this means we’ve got many months to wait until we can check back in with Richard, Jared, and the rest of the Pied Piper gang.

Until then, though, we’ll have other opportunities to enjoy that cast. Silicon Valley lead Thomas Middleditch, for example, stars in Joshy, as a bereaved man who tries to enjoy what would have been his bachelor party. Jeff Baena‘s Sundance dramedy is lousy with comedic talents including Adam PallyNick KrollBrett Gelman, Alex Ross PerryJenny Slate, and Aubrey Plaza. Watch the first Joshy trailer below.  Read More »

Batgirl

The Neon Demon is Nicolas Winding Refn‘s first movie with a female lead, but that’s not for lack of trying. You may recall that way back, Refn wanted to direct a Wonder Woman movie. That didn’t happen, obviously — the Wonder Woman movie due out from Warner Bros. and DC next year is directed by Patty Jenkins — but now he’s got his eye on a different superheroine. In a recent interview, he revealed he wanted to make a Batgirl movie.  Read More »

Morgan trailer

Anya Taylor-Joy came seemingly out of nowhere to wow audiences in The Witch earlier this year. It was the kind of star-making performance that had us dying to see where she’d end up next, and luckily we haven’t had to wait too long for an answer. Taylor-Joy will be seen this fall in Morgan, a sci-fi thriller that marks the directorial debut of Luke Scott (son of Ridley Scott, who gets a producer credit).

As in The Witch, she plays a young woman that arouses fear and suspicion in others. Unlike in The Witch, her character in Morgan seems to know exactly what she’s doing. Taylor-Joy is Morgan, an artificial being created in a lab. Kate Mara stars as a corporate consultant sent to investigate a terrifying incident involving Morgan. The impressive cast also includes Toby JonesRose LeslieBoyd HolbrookMichelle YeohJennifer Jason Leigh, and Paul Giamatti. Watch the first Morgan trailer below.  Read More »
