Okay, so it’s not quite the solo Black Widow movie we’ve been waiting for. But Scarlett Johansson is getting her own superhero movie this summer, sort of. The film is directed by Luc Besson, and in Lucy Scarlett Johansson is a young woman who gains “superhero-level” powers via some drugs. This being a Luc Besson movie, this naturally leads to her using her newfound abilities to kick a lot of ass. Check out a first-look image from Lucy after the jump.

The Purge: Anarchy, which acts as the sequel to last fall’s hit thriller, throws a stranger middle-class couple and a man out for revenge into the mayhem of the annual purge. That event, for those who missed the first film, is a single night per year in which all crime is legal, the better to weed out the “weaker” aspects of society. The Purge: Anarchy trailer gives vague hints about how those new characters come together, and shows off one particularly icky situation in which a parody of a charity auction turns into a night of murder for sale.

The casting reports for Jurassic World have been full of rumor as much as fact, as reports for a film like this tend to be. But the list of actors who were initially connected to the movie has slowly been checked off with confirmations, one by one. Jake Johnson (New Girl, Drinking Buddies) is the latest actor to be confirmed for the Colin Trevorrow film, which will begin shooting very soon, after a screenwriting delay.

In this Jurassic World concept art, someone spared no expense. Two pieces of rumored concept art from Colin Trevorrow‘s highly-anticipated sequel Jurassic World have hit the net, showing a highly-evolved, super-technologically advanced building on a tropical island. It looks a bit like a new Visitor’s Center for a dinosaur park, but we don’t know for sure. Maybe it’s something that was part of the film at one point and now isn’t. Or many this is a massive plot point. All we really know is, at some point, artist Nathan Schroeder made these images for the film, they are beautiful and ripe for speculation. Check out some Jurassic World concept art below. Read More »
The latest Scarface remake might have found its director. Pablo Larraín, director of No, is in final talks to remake the 1983 Brian De Palma gangster classic, itself already a remake of a 1932 film by Howard Hawkes. Written by Paul Attanasio (Donnie Brasco), this version of Scarface will combine elements from both films in modern day Los Angeles as a Mexican immigrant works his way up in the drug trade. Producers are hoping to cast a bicultural, bilingual Latino actor in the lead. Read More »

After much deliberation, the filmmakers of Fast & Furious 7 announced in January that they would deal with star Paul Walker‘s death by “retiring” his character Brian O’Conner. But that still left a lot of questions about how, exactly, they’d turn Walker’s half-completed performance into a full one. Now a new report offers the unsurprising answer: through the judicious use of CGI and body doubles. Get the details after the jump.

Apparently, Dumb and Dumber To is good. That’s the buzz coming off the film’s first test screening earlier this month. And not just from the people who tweet, either. I’ve heard from people I know and trust who snuck their way into that screening, the Farrelly Brothers are back with a gross-out comic romp worth of their best films.
The best part of that is the film doesn’t come out for eight months, which means the Farrellys have more than enough time to tinker and get people ready for the triumphant return of Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) on November 14. The first part of that promotion was just revealed, in the form of a pair of teaser posters on the film’s official Dumblr page. Yes, you read that right. Dumblr. Check them out below. Read More »
