Lin-Manuel Miranda on Drunk History

Hamilton has been all the rage from the Broadway stages of New York City. The historical musical from Lin-Manuel Miranda is the hottest ticket in town, and even people who haven’t had a chance to see the show are in love with its unique soundtrack. Now the man who created the musical will retell the story of Alexander Hamilton again, but this time, he’s going to get hammered.

Drunk History has recruited Lin-Manuel Miranda as one of the guests for the fourth season of the show that features comedians telling the stories of certain events in history, but after they’ve had too many alcoholic beverages. As you’ve probably surmised, Miranda will be telling the story of the rivalry between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. But he’s not the only awesome guest star that Drunk History season four will have for inebriated entertainment. Hit the jump for more. Read More »

Brie Larson in The Gambler

You can always count on Marvel Studios to put on a grand show in Comic-Con’s Hall H, and this year was no exception. Among other things, the studio talked a bit about Captain Marvel, their first solo female superhero movie. For weeks now Brie Larson has been rumored to be the frontrunner for the title role, and at Comic-Con today Marvel Studios finally confirmed the news.

sandy wexler

It’s hard to tell if Adam Sandler‘s four-picture deal with Netflix represents him being ahead of the curve in a major way or it it represents some sort of decline. Right now, making movies directly for a streaming service can’t help but feel like a descent into direct-to-video territory (although the independent productions Netflix routinely acquires don’t carry that possibly imaginary stigma), but who knows how future generations will feel on the matter. I won’t be watching The Ridiculous 6 or The Do-Over anytime soon, but they certainly represent a chapter in a future book chronicling the rise of streaming movies.

And now the Great Adam Sandler Netflix Experiment is set to continue with a film titled Sandy Wexler and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson is being dragged along for this one.

Anton Yelchin as Pavel Chekov

This weekend marks the debut of Star Trek Beyond, and by all accounts it’s quite good. So good, in fact, that Paramount is already moving full speed ahead on a sequel. But there’s a bittersweetness underlying all the warm buzz and giddy celebration — Star Trek Beyond is one of the last-ever completed roles of actor Anton Yelchin, who recently passed away at the age of 27. So how will the franchise deal with Yelchin’s character Chekov going forward?

Producer J.J. Abrams said the filmmakers are still weighing their options, pointing out it’s still “too early” to announce a decision. But the one thing they definitely won’t do, he revealed, is recast the role of Ensign Pavel Chekov with a new actor.  Read More »

Emojimovie

Remember the time you were scrolling through your iPhone keyboard, looking for the perfect wink to punctuate a flirty text, and you got to thinking about how you’d definitely pay good money to watch an entire feature-length film about those tiny yellow faces? No? Well, you’re getting one anyway. Sony Pictures Animation is currently in the process of putting together Emojimovie: Express Yourself, and as of this week they have a leading man. If you’ve ever wondered what a smiley face would sound like, the answer, at least in this movie, is T.J. Miller.

Watch the Emojimovie TJ Miller “audition tape” below.  Read More »

Star Trek 4

UPDATE: Paramount has officially announced that a fourth Star Trek movie is in development and that yes, it will somehow find a way to bring Chris Hemsworth’s George Kirk into the fold. Time travel has played a major role throughout Star Trek‘s 50-year history (heck, it played a major role in the mere existence of these newest movies), so this unlikely reunion is perfectly in line with what has come before. No director is attached yet, but J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay are writing the screenplay. The entire cast is expected to return minus Chekhov, who will be retired from the Enterprise crew following the tragic death of Anton Yelchin. The original article follows below.

We’re still a few days from seeing Star Trek Beyond premiere at San Diego Comic-Con, followed by hitting theaters everywhere late next week (or a bit earlier if you head to the Star Trek marathon at AMC Theatres). While the early buzz is pretty stellar, most of us are still in the dark about what happens in the movie, but now we’re all on even footing when it comes to knowing something about Star Trek 4.

One thing we’ve seen in the trailers for Star Trek Beyond is a hint that Captain Kirk’s arc in the movie is about doing more than living up to the legacy of his heroic father George Kirk, played by Chris Hemsworth before he became Thor, who died in the opening of the 2009 reboot from J.J. Abrams just after Kirk was born. Therefore, it only makes sense that news of the return of Chris Hemsworth to the franchise comes from Abrams as well. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

Oscar Isaac Steven Spielberg

Even before Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters last December, Oscar Isaac was already a pretty hot commodity. Leading up to his role in the massive sci-fi franchise, he had already made waves with outstanding performances in Ex Machina, A Most Violent Year and Inside Llewyn Davis, quickly turning him into a coveted talent on the big screen. Plus, even though most were not impressed with X-Men: Apocalypse, that had nothing to do with Isaac, and his profile hasn’t been hurt by that stumble at all.

Now Oscar Isaac is preparing to add another notch to his professional acting belt with news that he is taking a role in The Kidnapping of Edgardo Montara, the next film from director Steven Spielberg. Read More »

Ben Stiller Mike White Brad Status

It’s been almost a decade since we’ve seen Mike White direct a feature film. Of course, the screenwriter behind The Good Girl and School of Rock has been busy since Year of the Dog. Most notably, he created and wrote HBO’s Enlightened, a beautiful, often heartbreaking show that didn’t last long enough. He directed six episodes of the series, but now he has another feature in the works. Ben Stiller is in final negotiations to star in White’s Brad Status as a man confronting his failures.

Below, learn more about the Mike White project.
