Paul Rudd in Ant-Man

In just a few days we’ll see Paul Rudd back in his superhero suit for Captain America: Civil War, but it looks like he’s headed for a big change of pace beyond that. He’s just signed on to star in The Catcher Was a Spy, based on the true story of a Major League Baseball player who became a spy for the OSS (a precursor for the CIA). Ben Lewin (The Sessions) will direct from a script by Saving Private Ryan writer Robert RodatRead More »

Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad

Regardless of whether you loved Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or loathed them, the world they exist in probably isn’t one you’d want to live in. It’s dark and dangerous and grimy, and often visited by superpowered extraterrestrials who reduce entire cities to rubbish. But dropping by for a brief visit? Yeah, that could be fun. And you’ll get your chance to do just that this summer.

Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood and DC Entertainment have revealed that DC Universe: The Exhibit is coming to the Warner Bros. lot, with sets and props from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the upcoming Suicide SquadRead More »

Shiloh Fernandez

Hollywood is ready to roll the dice on another board game adaptation. A bidding war has broken out over Monsterpocalypse, a robots-versus-monsters game adaptation that has Fede Alvarez on board to direct. If the concept reminds you a bit of Pacific Rim, you’re not the only one who’s noticed — an earlier version of the project stalled after Guillermo del Toro’s jaegers and kaiju stomped all over theaters in 2013.

Netflix Orders Marvel’s ‘Punisher’ Spinoff

Punisher

Even before the Punisher made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the second season of Daredevil, rumors abounded about the possibility of a Punisher spinoff. He’s a popular character to begin with, after all, and Jon Bernthal couldn’t be a better choice to play him. Then the character actually appeared on the show, and proved to be everything fans had hoped for. The calls for a Punisher spinoff only got louder. And now, Marvel is finally ready to make its move.

A Punisher spinoff has reportedly been ordered by Marvel, with Bernthal set to return as the vigilante character. Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal) will write, executive produce, and serve as showrunner. Read More »

Southside With You

As Barack Obama’s time in the White House draws to a close, a new indie drama looks back at an early turning point in his life. Set in 1989, Southside With You follows Barack (Parker Sawyers), a law firm associate, and his colleague Michelle (Tika Sumpter), on an afternoon out together — and though she insists it’s not a date, we in the future know better. It plays sort of like a Before Sunrise for the political set, full of meandering walks and thoughtful conversations and loads of romantic chemistry. Only unlike with Before Sunrise, we know exactly what happens to these characters after the credits roll. Watch the Southside With You trailer after the jump.  Read More »

Jamie Foxx in Horrible Bosses

For years now we’ve been reporting on the on-again, off-again development of The Jim Henson Company’s The Happytime Murders, a puppet noir described as “Avenue Q meets L.A. Confidential.” The project got a shot in the arm last year when STX Entertainment scooped it up, and now it’s taking another big step forward by casting its first human. Jamie Foxx is in early talks to play the human half of the detective duo investigating a streak of puppet murders.  Read More »

Ghostbusters - hotel

The Ghostbusters marketing campaign has offered plenty of footage of our new heroes bonding and bickering and dealing with paranormal phenomena. What we haven’t seen much of is the villain — the evil force behind the scenes who’s pulling all the strings and unleashing all these horrors. But today, we have comments from director Paul Feig and screenwriter Katie Dippold that shed some light on this shadowy figure.

Meanwhile, if you’re still holding out hope that the new heroes will someday meet the old heroes, well, Feig says he’d like to see that too. While the upcoming Ghostbusters is a hard reboot — meaning it has no narrative connection to the original films — the filmmaker teased the possibility of a “multiverse” that could lead to a crossover someday.  Read More »
