gal gadot pregnant during wonder woman reshoots

Gal Gadot came pretty close to actually becoming a real Wonder Woman when she returned to Leavesden Studios outside London to finish some reshoots for Wonder Woman.

It was November of last year, and Gadot was five months pregnant with her second child, her baby bump conspicuously showing. But through some movie magic and some plain old female badassery, Gadot filmed the reshoots without a hitch, showing us all up.

Find out how Gal Gadot shot Wonder Woman pregnant after the jump.

the predator to use practical effects

The temptation to rely on CGI is huge these days, but director Shane Black is trying to buck that trend.

For his take on The Predator, the fourth installment in the Predator franchise following Predator (1987), Predator 2 (1990), and Predators (2010), he will be revisiting the practical effects that made the first film so iconic. That means getting a 7-plus-foot actor to don a heavy rubber suit in the jungle heat.

original power rangers actors

’90s kids had a lot of expectations going into Power Rangers, the big-budget movie reboot of the weird and kitschy American sentai show. We wanted to live their ass-kicking superhero lives (I predictably was a Pink Ranger wannabe), and the anticipation was high for it the movie to measure up to the beloved childhood series.

But for the actors who actually lived the Ranger Life, expectations were even higher. And they weren’t exactly met.

ang lee gemini man

Ang Lee has become quite fixated on technology advances in film, with his latest films like Life of Pi and Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk experimenting with everything from 3D filming to high frame rates.

Despite the meager reception to the experimental Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, it looks like Lee won’t be shying away from boundary-pushing high-tech storytelling, as he’s reportedly eyeing the director’s chair for Gemini Man, a spy thriller about an aging assassin who is hunted by a younger clone of himself. Gemini Man has been gestating in development hell for nearly 20 years — until now. Could that have something to do with the de-aging tech we’ve seen blossom over the past few years?

the lion king remake

Jon Favreau has a lot to live up to with his The Lion King remake. The 1994 original is one of the crown jewels of the Disney Renaissance of the late ’80s and ’90s and one of the most successful Disney animated movies of all time.

And Favreau is aware of that pressure to adapt a popular story still fresh in people’s minds — it was one of the pitfalls that Beauty and the Beast had to navigate with Bill Condon’s 2017 adaptation. But he has a method for making sure he does right by the original The Lion King.

avengers 4 title spoils infinity war

With the Marvel Cinematic Universe meticulously planned for the next three years, why is Marvel starting to balk at revealing something as inconsequential as a title? Maybe because it’s not so inconsequential.

Avengers: Infinity War is deep in production right now, but very little is known about its follow-up, known only as Avengers 4 — nor is much known about next wave of movies, or “Phase 4,” that the film is supposed to kick off. Now, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is hinting that the title for Avengers 4 has yet to be revealed because it’s a major spoiler for the events of Infinity War. As for Marvel’s Phase 4? Feige doesn’t even know if it should be called that.

guardians of the galaxy trilogy

We knew the third volume of Guardians of the Galaxy may spell the end for the team as we know it, but it looks like it will wrap up the loose ends before dismantling everything.

James Gunn is planning to make his Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy one complete story. The Guardians will make an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War before their third outing as a team, but then that may be the last we see of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy. But don’t worry: though Gunn may be wrapping up his flagship series, this won’t be the last we see of him with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

deleted guardians of the galaxy 2 scenes

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was already bursting at the seams with new allies, new enemies, Kurt Russell, Sylvester Stallone, and a whopping five post-credits scenes — so director James Gunn can be forgiven for being a little generous with cuts.

Nathan Fillion‘s cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, was sadly one of the scenes that ended up on the cutting room floor alongside a scene with tons of Easter eggs, according to Gunn. But thanks to the whirlwind Guardians press tour, we’re getting more details about these cut scenes every day.
