Magic Mike

As Magic Mike XXL enters principal photography, Warner Bros. is baring a bit more information about the upcoming sequel. Among the latest stars to be announced are Donald Glover, Elizabeth Banks, and Michael Strahan, though it’s equally interesting to note who isn’t coming back. We already knew Matthew McConaughey was a no-go, but it seems Alex Pettyfer may sit this one out as well.

In addition, the studio has finally revealed the official synopsis for the film which explains exactly why the boys are hitting the road. And star Channing Tatum has dished up a tantalizing image from the first day of shooting. Get the Magic Mike XXL synopsis, casting announcements, and photo after the jump.

Lionsgate is set to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the theatrical release of SAW by bringing the film back to theaters nationwide for a one-week run starting on Friday, October 31st with select screenings beginning Thursday night, October 30th. Complain all you want about the series of films that it spawned but the original is actually a pretty interesting indie film. (I first discovered it the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.) The director of the original film, James Wan, has gone on to create the Insidious franchise, as well as directing The Conjuring and the upcoming Fast & Furious 7. Read the full Saw 2014 rerelease press release after the jump.

Pixar theory

The films of Pixar seem as if they are primarily separate stories. (With the exception of the obvious relationship between sequels.) One theory, however, posits an elaborate timeline in which the advanced technology seen in Wall-E is developed over the course of hundreds of years, with a starting point seen in Up and the Toy Story films, and which explains the stars of Cars and the ever-evolving intelligence of animals. And Boo, the young heroine of Monsters Inc., has a surprising role in the whole cycle. Watch the Pixar Theory video below. Read More »

Interstellar TV spots

In addition to being one of the most highly-anticipated movies of late 2014, Interstellar is also one of the most mysterious. The Christopher Nolan-directed sci-fi adventure hasn’t played any festivals or otherwise allowed for any early reviews, and even the marketing campaign has been careful not to give away too much.

And naturally, all of that secrecy just makes us more curious about the movie. For now, we’ll take what we can get. Today, that means four new TV spots which reveal a bit more Interstellar footage and clarify some of the plot details. Watch the Interstellar TV spots after the jump.

Avengers 3 split

If the pattern of Marvel’s last couple team-based movies holds, Avengers: Age of Ultron will likely be a gigantic affair, in terms of production scale, promotion, and (hopefully) reception. And with Avengers 3 known to be in the pipeline for a likely 2018 release, expectations will run high for that film to surpass everything Marvel has done before it. So could Marvel follow in the wake of other studios and split the final chapter of this set of Avengers stories into two parts? It’s unlikely, but below we’ll discuss a report that claims exactly such a plan is under consideration.

Along with the two-film rumor, there’s a slightly more credible report floating around, saying that the Age of Ultron trailer will arrive with Interstellar.

David Fincher

From what we’ve heard, J.J. Abrams was always the director Kathleen Kennedy wanted to direct Star Wars Episode VII. Abrams had the ability and the insane Star Wars fandom to please executives and fans alike. However, don’t forget, he initially turned it down. History gets murky after that, with an incredible list of A-list directors who were rumored to, and reported to, have been contacted. Brad Bird, Matthew Vaughn, Jon Favreau, Guillermo del Toro and many others were mentioned in tandem with the film. Then, of course, J.J. Abrams changed his mind and the rest his story.

Probably the most interesting name mentioned in regards to Star Wars Episode VII was David Fincher. We published a rumor about Fincher meeting with Lucasfilm in November 2012 and, it turns out, that was correct. In a new interview, Fincher confirmed he met with Kennedy about the film but has a much different view of Star Wars than what she had in mind. Read the David Fincher Star Wars 7 quote below.
