Adrianne Palicki had one shot at superhero stardom on TV when she nabbed the lead role in a Wonder Woman pilot. That show never made it to series, however. But she ended up as a regular on the second season of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, and now she’s one of the two leads of the developing SHIELD spin-off series. Read More »

We don’t know quite what to make of Pan, the Peter Pan origin story that Warner Bros. will open this year. Sure, it stars Hugh Jackman and is directed by Joe Wright (Hanna, Atonement) but that first trailer was… well, it was colorful and odd, but not one of the best we’ve seen. It’s still early, though, and now we’ll wait a few months longer to find out what Pan is all about, as it gets some extra visual effects time and room to breathe on the calendar. The Pan release date has been pushed from July of this year to early October. Read More »
Guys named “Skinner” were an important part of the Fox lineup in the ’90s. Seymour Skinner has been a Simpsons mainstay since the earliest days, and on The X-Files Walter Skinner showed up towards the end of the first season, and steadily established himself as an important component of the X-Files formula. Now The X-Files is returning to TV for a new six-episode “event series,” and Mitch Pileggi has confirmed what we had hoped: Skinner will be back. Read More »
UPDATE: Marvel has confirmed this report. Read the official press release below.
We just talked about the fact that Captain Marvel didn’t make an appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron, in part because the character isn’t cast or quite defined yet, and over the weekend we reported that the Captain Marvel screenwriters would be announced soon. Now we’ve got the names Marvel is trying to lock in, and they make an interesting new team: Nicole Perlman, who wrote the draft of Guardians of the Galaxy that got that movie on track, and Meg LeFauve, who co-wrote Pixar’s Inside Out.

Four new Tomorrowland character posters show off the film’s four major characters in a glowing, idealistic light. Literally — these are pretty magic hour portraits featuring George Clooney as “former boy-genius Frank,” and the girl Casey (Britt Robertson), who finds her way to Frank’s home, and to Tomorrowland. Who are the other two? There are Raffey Cassidy as Athena, and Thomas Robinson as young Frank. Check ‘em all out below. Read More »

The cast of Zoolander 2 is coming together; we know that Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson are back as Derek Zoolander and Hansel, and really, really, ridiculously good-looking person Penelope Cruz has also signed on. Kristen Wiig is playing an outrageously-coiffed character, Will Ferrell has returned, and now Billy Zane is officially in the cast. Stiller’s announcement of that addition is terrific. Watch below.

The Overnight is a hilarious and perceptive relationship comedy that turned up at Sundance this year. Adam Scott and Taylor Schilling play a couple new to Los Angeles; at a park with their young son, they meet cool dad Jason Schwartzman, who invites them over for a little “welcome to the neighborhood” dinner with his wife, played by Judith Godrèche. And then things slowly but surely get weird.
The film is a raunchy comedy, but it isn’t just a raunchy comedy — there’s some really sharp stuff here about how making adult friendships can be really weird, and how dealing with all the weird stuff you’re into can be really difficult when you’re not sure if your partner is into it, too. Check out The Overnight trailer below.

Today at the final day of Star Wars Celebration, Star Wars: Rogue One director Gareth Edwards took the stage for a panel called “Conversations with Gareth Edwards and Josh Trank.” Oddly, Trank did not show up (Kathleen Kennedy said he woke up sick) and in the end of there was no further mention of him or his film. Edwards, however, was on hand to show a very brief teaser and provide some Rogue One plot details, including a confirmation of our plot scoop.
Star Wars: Rogue One is the first film in the new Star Wars Anthology series (that’s the official title for the spin-off movies) and features a plot in which “a rogue band of fighters come together to steal the death star plans.” Get more details, including a full teaser trailer description, below.

After a low-quality bootleg did the rounds twenty-four hours ago, Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. released a legit version of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer. Having watched it a couple times a few ideas jump right out, so naturally it’s time for us to go frame-by-frame through the footage, grabbing dozens of Batman v Superman trailer images to pull what details we can out of the footage.
