Marvel Studios is growing ever-more confident. Once, Guardians of the Galaxy was seen as a risky move. The success of that film proved that the combination of smart casting and Marvel’s marketing machine can overcome the big hurdle of audience unfamiliarity. So how weird can Marvel’s character stable get? The next test may be The Inhumans. Rumors have flown for some time, of development of a film based on the strange characters. Vin Diesel just teased the possibility of the movie, and now there’s a report that Marvel has an Inhumans script in hand. Read More »

Ant-Man is a well-traveled subject thanks to the departure of original director Edgar Wright, but there’s still a whole lot we don’t know about the film. The brief Comic Con presentation gave the actors a chance to explain a few things in their own words, most of which we already knew.
On stage at Comic Con, Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Corey Stoll, and Evangeline Lilly talked about the basic relationship between Scott Lang (Rudd) and Hank Pym (Douglas), the wearer and inventor of a shrinking technology, respectively. They explained that Stoll plays Darren Cross, aka Yellowjacket, while Lilly appears as Hope Van Dyne, implying that she is the daughter of Pym’s estranged wife Janet Van Dyne.
Now, there’s an interview with new director Peyton Reed, where Reed specifically sa Read More »

Video game movies get a bad rap, often for good reason, but there’s reason to hope for the best with some of UbiSoft’s upcoming projects. The game publisher has been directly involved with developing a whole slate of films based on its game titles, and hiring great talent to make the films a reality.
Assassin’s Creed, for example, will star Michael Fassbender. The actor is also producing, and working with director Justin Kurzel, who directed Fassbender in Macbeth. It’s been a while since we had any good report of progress on the film but Fassbender now says it is still moving forward, and that they have an intense desire to “respect the game.” Read More »
AMC recently premiered the first Better Call Saul footage, and the clip from the Breaking Bad spin-off is now online. It’s not much — ten seconds of Saul (Bob Odenkirk) talking about the value of having a lawyer. But we know much of the show takes place six years before Breaking Bad, and this seems like a Saul who is younger and not quite as shark-like as he is by the time Walt and Jesse walk into his office years later. In fact, the character probably isn’t even called Saul at this point. He’s most likely going by the name James M. McGill. He once told Walt that’s his real name, but who knows with Saul? Presumably the show will fill in many more details.
Better Call Saul premieres in February 2015. Watch the footage below. Read More »
