Here is a short snippet from Olsen explains her super abilities:

Yeah. So, I am able to go into someone’s head and make them see their almost like –I can feel and see what they feel and see, so it’s not just manipulating them. But what I love about her is that in so many superhero films emotions are kind of negated a bit but for her everything that someone else could feel, like their weakest moment, she physically goes through that same experience with them, which is pretty cool. So if they have a biggest darkest fear, I could see that. … I can control energy. I can manipulate energy. So that’s what the red stuff is that we’re playing with.

Deadpool movie costume

OK, Ryan Reynolds, you got me. The actor shared the first official image of his Deadpool costume today, and it’s a shot that Burt Reynolds would really approve of. So naturally we love it, too. The shot really lets you see the details of the Deadpool movie costume, and also the attitude of Reynolds’ so-called “Merc With a Mouth.” It’s pretty much the perfect single-image intro to the character.

Steven Spielberg to Direct ‘Ready Player One’

Ready Player One director

The film version of Ernie Cline’s novel Ready Player One just got a huge shot of adrenaline, as it is now set to go at Warner Bros. thanks to a collaboration with Village Roadshow. It has also attracted one of the biggest talents in filmmaking. As of now, the Ready Player One director is Steven Spielberg.

The novel features a teen gamer who lives his life exploring secrets and details of a “virtual utopia” called OASIS, which features details of games and movies from decades past. He and others are all searching for an in-game easter egg which will give them control of the entire world.

And while people have wondered how this novel could possibly be faithfully adapted, given that it features references to a whole host of real-world properties, having Spielberg’s name on the film could be the answer.

Terminator Genisys set visit

On July 11th 2014, I traveled to New Orleans to visit the set of Terminator Genisys, the fifth installment of the Terminator film franchise. My visit to the set of McG‘s Terminator Salvation four years prior couldn’t have been more different than my experience on the latest installment.

Salvation director McG had talked up Jonathan Nolan’s script (right on the heels of The Dark Knight‘s release). He showed us a ton of practical creations designed by Stan Winston’s Legacy Effects; we explored gritty lived in sets made out of dilapidated buildings in Albuquerque, saw a room of cool concept art, and we watched Christian Bale film a “should have been” iconic scene. But of course, it wasn’t a remembered moment — because the film was widely panned by critics and fans alike.

On the other hand, my visit to the Terminator Genisys set could not have been more the opposite: the sound stages were lined wall to wall with giant green screens, we saw no endoskeletons, and we saw no animatronic puppets. Instead we watched Arnold Schwarzenegger walk across the set for a “walk and talk” scene late in the film. Instead of a full on-assault to convince us this was going to be cool, we were met with a low-key, more confident and assured presentation from everyone involved.

We know how Terminator Salvation turned out; will this be any different? I’ll be completely honest, I was way more impressed with what I saw on the set of Terminator Salvation, but that might be because the crew of Terminator Genisys seemed much more guarded — their plan not only involved this film, but a trilogy of movies. Despite being very cagey with details, all of the people we talked to seemed much more confident this time around. What I can tell you is what I learned while on set.
