Captain America Civil War Viral Video

As you probably know by now, the catalyst for Captain America: Civil War is the introduction of the Sokovia Accords, which demand that The Avengers have some kind of government oversight by the United Nations after their heroic actions have resulted in dozens of deaths around the world.

Now a viral video has arrived in the form of a news broadcast featuring Christine Everhart. If that name sounds familiar, that’s because the character first appeared in Iron Man as a reporter trying to interview Tony Stark in Las Vegas. Leslie Bibb (Talladega Nights) played the character who also ended up in bed with the billionaire, playboy and philanthropist only to later have an awkward encounter with him in Iron Man 2.

Princess Diaries

Rumors of a Princess Diaries 3 have been floating around for some time now, but in recent weeks they’ve grown ever-so-slightly more concrete. Garry Marshall, who directed both The Princess Diaries and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, confirms he’s actually had a meeting with stars Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews — though he stops short of announcing the project outright, maybe because, according to him, Disney likes to do that stuff itself.  Read More »

aliens sequel details

At one point, it looked like the Alien franchise could branch off into two directions, with Ridley Scott helming a series of Prometheus movies while Neill Blomkamp revived the Alien films. But then Blomkamp’s Alien movie was put on hold and then delayed indefinitely while Scott finished Prometheus 2 — which was subsequently renamed Alien: Covenant. At this point, it’s unclear when we’ll see Blomkamp’s planned Alien sequel. But star Sigourney Weaver assures fans the project is still on. It’s just a matter of when.  Read More »

DADDY'S HOME

In terms of box office news, all anyone could talk about last winter was the complete and utter domination of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and with good reason — it smashed nearly every record in its path, becoming the third-highest grossing movie of all time. But a few films managed to flourish even in the shadow of Starkiller Base, and one of those was Daddy’s Home. Opening the weekend after Star Wars, the comedy quietly racked up an impressive $240 million worldwide over the course of its run. So you can probably guess what I’m about to tell you next.

Yup, Paramount is moving forward with a sequel to Daddy’s Home, with Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell set to return as the rival dads. No director has been announced, but Sean Anders (who also directed the last film) and John Morris are returning to write the script.  Read More »
