Jeff Nichols directing Mud

Jeff Nichols‘ Midnight Special was originally scheduled to open in theaters this month. The “sci-fi chase film” is written and directed by Nichols, one the most exciting filmmakers working today. His last previous efforts, Take Shelter and Mud, are easily two of the best films of the past five years. Nichols has made a new kind of movie with Midnight Special, a sci-fi studio picture. With the film only a few months away, promotion materials are starting to come out.

See the Midnight Special poster after the jump and read what Nichols had to say about his latest project.

Chris Pine in Wonder Woman

We’ve gotten plenty of glimpses of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, even if we haven’t seen her on the set of the heroine’s first solo film in the DC cinematic universe just yet. She’ll be popping up in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice next spring, so we already know what this big screen version of Wonder Woman is bringing to the table. But what we haven’t seen is her co-star Chris Pine, until now.

A new photo from behind the scenes of Wonder Woman has revealed Pine in his World War I wardrobe as Steve Trevor. But it’s the source of this photo that also reveals a new cast member that we hadn’t heard about yet. Read More »

Aquaman director

James Wan‘s Aquaman went fishing and caught itself another new writer. David Leslie Johnson has been brought on board to pen the DC superhero movie, which already has Jason Momoa attached to play the lead.

2016 won’t want for superhero team-ups. Marvel is assembling most of the Avengers for Captain America: Civil War, the X-Men are coming together for Apocalypse, and DC is promising the Dawn of Justice. But if supervillains are more your style, your best bet is Suicide Squad, which brings together Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), the Joker (Jared Leto), Deadshot (Will Smith) and many more.

At the helm of this “Dirty Dozen with supervillains” pic is David Ayer, and at his side is producer Charles Roven. In a recent interview, Roven dished about Leto’s widely publicized on-set antics, the film’s PG-13 rating, and more.  Read More »

Paul Thomas Anderson Not Directing ‘Pinocchio’

Paul Thomas Anderson documentary

Live-action updates of animated films are the hot new thing right now. Most of them haven’t been particularly good, with the notable exception of Kenneth Branagh‘s lovely take on Cinderella. But one live-action update that’s evoked promise over the past few years is Warner Bros.’ Pinocchio, which Robert Downey Jr. has been attached to for years now. The film became all the more enticing when Paul Thomas Anderson (Inherent Vicesigned on to write a draft and possibly direct, but it looks like we won’t see Anderson’s take on the classic fairy tale after all.

Learn more about the project after the jump.
