Iron Man 3 Female Villain

There have been some disappointing decisions on the merchandise side of things from Disney and Marvel Studios, specifically with regards to their treatment of female characters. Black Widow, once the only female member of the Avengers, had a rather disappointing shortage of toys, so much that Avengers star Mark Ruffalo lamented that his daughters and nieces couldn’t find many at the store. In fact, Black Widow was even left out of an action figure playset inspired by a key scene for the character in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Now some more upsetting details from behind the Marvel machine have been revealed.

Director Shane Black has been out promoting The Nice Guys (in theaters this weekend), and a recent interview saw part of the discussion steer towards Iron Man 3 and some of the difficulties he had on the production. One surprising revelation that came from the discussion was that the primary villain in the movie, played by Guy Pearce, was originally slated to be a female character. But Marvel forced a change in the character’s gender because they believed a female villain action figure wouldn’t sell as well. Wow.

rey's island

The big questions coming out of Star Wars: The Force Awakens are who Rey’s parents are and where she comes from. Daisy Ridley‘s character even quips that its “a big mystery” early on in the film, and there are certainly a lot of theories going around to who it might be. One piece of evidence that many fans seem to be holding on to comes from John Williams‘ score from the film. We’ve posted about this in the past, but fans have analyzed Rey’s theme (the best song from the new movie) and have drawn some conclusions from that piece of music.

But did John Williams even know who Rey’s parents were when he wrote that piece or orchestration? If not, surely Oscar-nominated editor Maryann Brandon must have been told when she was helping J.J. Abrams shape the flow of the story in the editing room, right? The answer may surprise you — find out after the jump.

Star Wars Episode VIII Details

Star Wars: Episode VIII is in production right now on the other side of the world, and while set photos have leaked here and there, showing off some of the new locations and the return of ships like the Millennium Falcon and some X-Wings, any significant details are still firmly under wraps.

But John Boyega, who played the new character Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, recently took a break from filming to stop by the Cannes Film Festival (he received the Chopard Trophy along with Diary of a Teenage Girl star Bel Powley), and he ended up chatting briefly about Episode VIII, including what we can expect from the sequel, and one thing that we probably shouldn’t count on in the romance department.

Ruby Barnhill

Steven Spielberg has gotten some exceptional performances out of child actors throughout his career. Rarely does a child’s performance in a Spielberg film ring false. Empire of the SunE.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, A.I.: Artificial IntelligenceJurassic Park, and The Temple of Doom star kids giving naturally charismatic and completely present performances. The director’s goal has always been to talk to them like people, not just treat them like children–and that’s evident in the video below featuring The BFG star Ruby Barnhill playing a round of Spielberg trivia with the director.

The BFG Trailer

After premiering at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival this weekend, one more trailer for Steven Spielberg‘s fantasy film The BFG has arrived. Based on Roald Dahl‘s classic children’s novel of the same name, the film follows a young girl (newcomer Ruby Barnhill) who finds herself in the world of giants after befriending one of the 24-foot inhabitants, played by Bridge of Spies star Mark Rylance.

In the latest The BFG trailer, we get to see much more of the giant world and impressive visual effects. Just from a technical standpoint, this already looks better than the recent giant adventure Jack the Giant Slayer, though it’s clearly a much more family friendly, whimsical tale. See for yourself in the new trailer after the jump. Read More »

The BFG Reviews

The 2016 Cannes Film Festival is in full swing, and some of the year’s biggest films are premiering there. One of the more anticipated titles is The BFG, marking the return of Steven Spielberg to family film territory. The movie reunites Spielberg with his Oscar-winning Bridge of Spies star Mark Rylance and newcomer Ruby Barnhill for an adaptation of Roald Dahl‘s classic novel about a young girl who befriends a “big friendly giant.”

The BFG just debuted at Cannes this weekend, and reviews and reactions are already hitting the web. The good news is that young children should enjoy the whimsical Disney fantasy film, but for some, the movie is missing a little bit of the magic that Spielberg’s family fare usually has. Check out some of The BFG reviews after the jump. Read More »

Real Captain America Shield

If you’ve seen Captain America: Civil War, then you know that Spider-Man takes notice of how Cap’s shield doesn’t really follow the rules of physics. The shield effortlessly bounces off walls and foes and somehow always manages to make it right back into the hands of Steve Rogers. And now one fan has made some of the magic of Captain America’s shield a reality with the use of electromagnets.

Find out how electromagnets help complete a real Captain America shield below. Read More »
