Tim Burton Batman

Tim Burton‘s Batman movies aren’t exactly what you’d call cheerful, but even he thinks the modern-day superhero could stand to lighten up a little. “Maybe we need to see a happy superhero?” he suggested.

Or maybe he just wants to see the genre change altogether. The filmmaker also criticized the Marvel formula, and predicted that moviegoers would tire of superhero films some day. And yet, all that said, he admits he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of helming another superhero film.

J.J. Abrams Star Wars Force Awakens

Last month we got our first look at the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens cast, and last week we got to put some names to some faces as the character names were revealed. But there are still many more characters we haven’t met.

Well, one of those strangers’ names has just been revealed (we think) and rumor has it it’s the one being played by Gwendoline Christie. Hit the jump for more on the new Star Wars The Force Awakens character name.  Read More »

True Story 0063.NEF

Jonah Hill and James Franco have worked together a few times before, but their latest team-up is a little bit different. True Story isn’t a joke-a-minute raunchfest, but an R-rated drama. As the title suggests, it’s based on a true story.

Hill plays disgraced New York Times reporter Michael Finkel, and Franco is accused killer Christian Longo, who assumes Finkel’s identity. Get your True Story first look after the jump. Read More »

Hugh Jackman Confirms ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Talks

Wolverine sequel

There will come a day when Hugh Jackman hangs up his Wolverine claws for the very last time. But that day isn’t coming for another couple of movies. Jackman confirmed in a recent interview that not only is he working “really hard” on a new Wolverine, he’s also been in discussions about X-Men: Apocalypse.

Christoph Waltz in Horrible Bosses 2

For a few weeks now there’s been a rumor floating around that Christoph Waltz would play iconic Bond baddie Blofeld in Bond 24. Even the studio’s confirmation that Waltz would play a character called Oberhauser in Spectre couldn’t quell that talk, since “Oberhauser” seemed like it could be a fake name a la Star Trek Into Darkness‘ “John Harrison.”

But for what it’s worth, Waltz insists the rumors are false, teasing that the truth about Oberhauser is “more interesting.” Of course, going back to the Star Trek Into Darkness example, we heard similar denials from Benedict Cumberbatch before he was exposed as a contractually obligated liar. So should we believe Waltz? Read the Christoph Waltz Blofeld denial after the jump.

CINDERELLA

It seems kind of appropriate that Cinderella should be getting a makeover, since the story itself hinges on a makeover. Disney is the fairy godmother in this case, wielding magic instead of CG and turning Cinderella from a 60-year-old animated feature into a brand-new live-action fantasy.

Of course, in Cinderella’s case the transformation undeniably changes her life for the better. It’s less clear why Cinderella really needed to be retold (aside from the obviou$), but at least this new version looks pretty.

Angie’s Most Anticipated Films of 2015

Avengers Age of Ultron Science Bros

Even as I scramble to get in a few more 2014 releases before I close the book on this year, I’m looking forward to 2015. Next year promises to be huge for Hollywood, packed as it is with big-name sequels like Star Wars 7 and Avengers 2. But it also looks like a good time for movie lovers, not just movie studios. A lot of those tentpoles look genuinely good. And a lot of riskier ventures look like they’ll pay off. And that’s not even getting into all of the indie gems buried ahead, waiting for us to discover them at Sundance or Toronto or what have you.

Films from the last category were naturally left off my list, as I can’t get excited for a movie I haven’t heard of yet or know nothing about. But for a list of the films (big and small) that I do know about, and am eagerly looking forward to, join me after the jump.  Read More »

MoonQuake Lake trailer

Phil Lord and Chris Miller have built up so much goodwill at this point, they could probably get audiences to watch anything. But even they may be testing their limits with MoonQuake Lake, a third-rate Twilight knockoff starring Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, and Rihanna.

Or rather, they might be pushing it if MoonQuake Lake were a real film instead of a pitch-perfect sendup of the fantasy YA subgenre. It’s the best joke from Annie, the new musical by Will Gluck. Watch Lord and Miller’s MoonQuake Lake trailer — and their tongue-in-cheek reaction to the film’s Golden Globes snub — after the jump.  Read More »
