In fact, he hasn’t had a new film in almost 6 years, with the release of Capitalism: A Love Story in 2009. Over the years Moore has hinted about working on a new film, and has even teased that he might leave documentaries for narrative films.

Now we know about Moore’s next project. It is Where to Invade Next , a documentary film which has already been completed in secret and will make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. Hit the jump for more details.

Deadpool

The first bit of Deadpool footage should be hitting the web any day now, but in the meantime we’ve got three more pics to hold you over. Ryan Reynolds takes center stage as the Merc with a Mouth, and in the new images he’s enjoying a bit of quality time with the women in his life — namely, his girlfriend Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) and his sidekick Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand).

Netflix defends Adam Sandler

The 2015 Television Critics Association summer press tour kicked off this morning with Netflix’s executive session with Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. Sarandos offered some updates during the panel on Marvel shows such as Daredevil, and spoke of Adam Sandler and the controversy over his Netflix film The Ridiculous Six, and awards plans for films like Beasts of No Nation and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon II.

Afterwards, I approached Sarandos for an update on Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday, the long-awaited new Pee-Wee Herman movie. He assured me it would play year-round, not just at Christmas.

Fuller House cast photos

As you know, the Tanner family is together again as the Netflix sequel series Fuller House is now in production. (See photos from the first day of shooting here.)

Today, however, Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos of Netflix offered an update, saying the Olsen twins could still appear in the series. He also talked about the filming of the first episode, which began this week. Find out about the possible Olsen Twins Fuller House return and more, after the jump.

Mission Impossible 5 Simon Pegg character profile

Okay, so you’ve been hearing how great the latest Mission: Impossible film is. The film tested higher than Ghost Protocol in test screenings and even the film critics are loving it. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation is currently scoring a whopping 97% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, which is incredible for a big budget blockbuster film. This is one of those film franchises that keeps getting better and better.

One of the things I loved about the latest installments is how much more action and screen time we see from Simon Pegg‘s character Benji Dunn. So when Paramount Pictures asked me to debut a Mission Impossible 5 Simon Pegg character profile, I said yes. The video focuses on Simon Pegg’s involvement in the latest installment, showing some behind the scenes footage of Pegg on set. Watch the Mission Impossible 5 Simon Pegg character profile now embedded after the jump.

Time Lyra Final Vimeo (For Real) Frame

Last fall, I shared a video of myself playing a looping cello version of “Time” from Hans Zimmer’s score for Inception. The response was amazing and I felt so encouraged that I actually went into a studio and recorded an entire EP of looping cello music (on sale today!).

To promote the EP, I wanted to create music videos for several tracks of the EP that were visually striking. So I teamed up with my partner-in-crime, dancer Danaë Montreuil again, and we went to Versatile Arts in Seattle to film a music video over the course of several hours using a lyra, or aerial hoop. The constantly-spinning lyra serves as a visual callback to the final moments of Inception, when Dom Cobb spins his totem and walks away before learning his fate.

I think Danaë was able to create something wonderful out of this project. Hit the jump to check out the video and learn more about how it was made.
