Brie Larson Captain Marvel director

Captain Marvel was first announced in 2014, but it won’t hit theaters until 2019, which is why progress on the film has felt like such painfully slow going. Still, Marvel took a very encouraging step forward this summer when they confirmed Brie Larson as the lead superhero. Now the next big task will be locking down a director, which Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige says they’ll do by the end of the year.

In a new interview, he explains why it’s taken them so long to find a Captain Marvel director, and what to expect from the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first solo leading female superhero. Here’s a hint: he describes Carol Danvers a.k.a. Captain Marvel as “by far the strongest character we’ve had.”  Read More »

Amy Adams in Nocturnal Animals trailer

The new Nocturnal Animals trailer is so decadently gorgeous, you’d think it was a Tom Ford ad. And, well, technically it is — but it’s not for one of his fragrances or clothing lines. Nocturnal Animals is the new film by Ford, the fashion designer who made his feature directing debut on A Single Man.

This one stars Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal as a divorced couple who’ve been estranged for many years. But their shared past comes rushing back to the forefront when Edward sends Susan a manuscript of his latest novel, a dark thriller about a family assaulted one night on a deserted West Texas road. Cutting between Susan’s life and the story in Edward’s novel, Ford weaves together a riveting tale of love, betrayal, and revenge. Watch the Nocturnal Animals trailer below. Read More »

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back Ed Zwick interview

Throughout his career, Tom Cruise has developed strong relationships with some notable filmmakers. From Steven Speilberg, Christopher McQuarrie, Cameron Crowe, to Doug Liman, it’s clear when Cruise connects with a director, he’s going to seek future opportunities and more stories to tell with those people. Another director on that list is Ed Zwick, whom Cruise worked with on The Last Samurai and most recently, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.

Like the Mission: Impossible franchise, Jack Reacher is maybe now another series where a director can come in and bring their personal touch to the character. Christopher McQuarrie’s Jack Reacher is lean, efficient and runs like clockwork. In McQuarrie’s film, Jack Reacher is already Jack Reacher. He knows who is he is. Reacher asks few questions, and McQuarrie asks even fewer questions about him. In Ed Zwick’s hands, that’s not the Reacher we watch. His portrayal of author Lee Child‘s character is more vulnerable and conflicted.

For a variety of reasons, the sequel is different from its predecessor. We discussed some of these differences with Zwick, in addition to adapting Child’s novel, director Syndey Pollack, Tom Cruise’s deep love for storytelling, and more.

Jimmy Kimmel Hires Doctor Strange

Even though we won’t see Doctor Strange until November 4th here in the United States, the trailers have already indicated that Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) will quickly become a master of the mystical arts, despite the fact that he doesn’t really believe in all that spiritual nonsense at first. However, it appears some wires got crossed and Jimmy Kimmel thought Doctor Strange was just a magician who could entertain at a kid’s birthday party. While Strange does his best to put on a good show for the kids, he doesn’t really know how to deal with them properly.

See what happens when Jimmy Kimmel hires Doctor Strange after the jump. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:


One of the new planets introduced in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a small desert moon located in the galaxy’s Inner Rim called Jedha. Director Gareth Edwards has described the world as “a Mecca or Jerusalem within the Star Wars world” where people who believe in the Force come to worship. In the years before Star Wars: A New Hope, the planet has become occupied by Galactic Empire and serves as a key location in this first Star Wars standalone movie.

However, a new fan theory suggests that Rogue One might not be the first time we’ve seen Jedha on the big screen. Some fans believe that the planet was later used by the First Order as Starkiller Base, as seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Is it true? Could it be possible? Let’s explore the Jedha Starkiller Base theory, after the jump.
