Independence Day 2 has added an unlikely source of star power. French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg is boarding the Roland Emmerich-directed sequel, joining Jeff Goldblum, Liam Hemsworth, and Jessie Usher.
A big-budget sci-fi adventure is an unusual move for Gainsbourg, recently best known for being Lars von Trier’s muse. But maybe those von Trier movies are actually the perfect preparation for Independence Day 2. After the crap she’s been through in Antichrist, Melancholia, and Nymphomaniac, killer aliens should be a piece of cake. Read More »
The New England Patriots winning the Super Bowl might have been painful for some football fans, but it’s been a blessing for movie fans. As a result of friendly bets made about the game, we’ve seen some very cool stuff. The most obvious examples are the touching photos of Marvel-men Chris Pratt and Chris Evans, in costume, visiting children’s hospitals. Now, another photo has surfaced via a Super Bowl bet that reveals our first look at one of 2015’s most anticipated films.
That film is Ridley Scott‘s The Martian, an adaptation of the Andy Weir novel. Matt Damon stars as Mark Watney, an astronaut mistakenly left alone on Mars. He then struggles to survive as Earth struggles to get him back. Damon made a Super Bowl bet with his assistant and since the Patriots won, the assistant has to wear a Patriots shirt all over the world. The first photo was taken in Jordan, in the desert, on the set of The Martian. See The Martian movie set image below. Read More »
Mark it on your calendar, Deadpool fans. March 19, 2015 is the day we saw the first images from the set of a Deadpool movie. Stars Ryan Reynolds and Morena Baccarin both tweeted out images of their set chairs with a makeshift, paint-splattered logo marking the start of production.
It’s been a long road for the film, which was first announced in 2009 and sat in development hell until the test footage shot for the then head of 20th Century Fox leaked online. Fox then saw the fan desire for the film and put it on the fast track.
Deadpool will be released February 12, 2016 and below you can see the Deadpool movie filming images. Read More »

In official images from two upcoming Marvel properties, we’re not seeing things that we’re used to seeing with the characters. There’s Netflix’s Daredevil, where we’ve see Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) in a simple, black costume. Then there’s Fox’s Fantastic Four, where the characters have so far been seen in functional, flexible suits. The link between the two is that neither project features the primary costumes we know from the comic books: the red Daredevil suit and the brighter blue Fantastic Four outfits with a big “4” on the chest.
Well, according to people involved with both projects, all those costumes will be in their respective projects. And while the Daredevil suit isn’t that surprising, the Fantastic Four one is. Read more about the Daredevil and Fantastic Four movie costumes below, plus see a new motion video from Daredevil. Read More »
Ryan Reynolds has seen first-hand the backlash against the poor on-screen handling of a fan-favorite character. Reynolds played a version of Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine that was not much at all like the core version of Deadpool, and fans were quick to blast the film’s character revisions. For the new Deadpool film, which begins shooting soon with Reynolds again playing the character, the actor says hard-core Deadpool fans should be able to embrace the new vision of the merc with a mouth.
