The Indiana Jones rumors continue to swirl and it feels like everyone is in the know except the principals. A few weeks back, Chris Pratt was cornered at an airport and asked about the rumors of him playing the role. He seemed fairly clueless about it. Then late last week, a report said that Steven Spielberg would be interested in directing a new film, if all the pieces fit. That suggested very little has actually moved forward on the film.
Then, on the Oscars red carpet, Pratt was cornered about the project again. This time he was much more prepared for the question and said he hadn’t been contacted about the role, but was intrigued by it and not intimidated. Listen to the latest Chris Pratt Indiana Jones interview below. Read More »
Screenwriter Gary Whitta (Book of Eli, After Earth) is about to release his first novel, Abomination. To promote the pre-order of the historical fantasy novel, Whitta sat down with us for an extensive interview spanning his career thus far. Over the course of this week we will be posting all of the parts of this interview broken up into digestible thematic bites — we’re calling it “/Film’s Week Of Whitta”.
In the first installment we wanted to cut to the chase and present the meatiest Gary Whitta Star Wars comments. As you know, Whitta wrote for a year on the first Star Wars spin-off film being directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla), which will hit theaters on December 16th 2016. We talked to Whitta about growing up with movies, which includes the original Star Wars trilogy. We also discuss the controversy over comments he’s made about the Star Wars prequels and special editions. (I’m not sure how the comments are controversial, considering most everyone I know shares a similar viewpoint.) And, of course, we talk to Gary about working on the upcoming Star Wars spin-off film, and while his Lucasfilm NDA prevents him from revealing any details, its worth reading. Read the Gary Whitta Star Wars interview after the jump.

Game of Thrones the show is all gloom and doom. If you’re unlucky, you’re poisoned or stabbed or head-exploded to death. If you’re really unlucky, you’re suffering a torment worse than death itself. And even if you are kinda lucky, all it means is that you can look forward to getting poisoned or stabbed or head-exploded to death on a different day.
Game of Thrones the set, however, is a different story. As a new blooper reel reveals, the actors are having a much better time than the characters they’re portraying, whether they’re giggling over flubbed lines or dealing with an unruly cat. Watch the Game of Thrones Season 4 blooper reel after the jump. Read More »
We’re getting mixed messages from Mission: Impossible 5. On one hand, Paramount moved the Tom Cruise film up from a Christmas 2016 release to a July 31 date. (No doubt partially inspired by fear of Star Wars.) But that doesn’t mean that everything is going perfectly well with the film, and reports now say the Mission Impossible 5 ending needs some work, and so the movie has taken a break from production in order to rework the ending, which “was deemed unsatisfactory.”
Update: Director Christopher McQuarrie has responded, briefly, to the report.

The summer starts early this year when James Wan‘s Furious 7 hits theaters on April 3.
The seventh film in the Fast and Furious franchise picks up where part 6 (and part 3) left off, taking the franchise into the unknown for the first time in years. Dom (Vin Diesel), Brian (Paul Walker) and the rest of the team will once again join up with Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and others to battle a new foe, played by Jason Statham. Kurt Russell joins the action, as do Djmon Hounsou and Ronda Rousey. Lucas Black returns, too. It promises to be the biggest Fast and Furious film yet, which is saying something if you’ve seen the last two.
This week, a few new clips have made their way online. One is a new international Furious 7 trailer that has a few new shots at Race Wars – a callback to the first film – and then there’s a new TV spot. Check them out below. Read More »
