If a new rumor is to be believed, Marvel Studios has finally found its Captain Marvel. It seems that newly minted Oscar winner Brie Larson is the frontrunner for the coveted role, although it’s not clear just how close she is to signing on the dotted line. In any case, if this is the quality of performer Marvel is pursuing for the star of their first solo female superhero movie, it certainly looks like everything is in good hands.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Ben Wheatley is one of the most exciting filmmakers working today and I look forward to each of his movies like a kid looks forward to Christmas. I named Kill List one of my fifteen favorite movies of all time. I think High-Rise, which is currently available on VOD and hits theaters this week, is an astonishing (if divisive) achievement. I have a Sightseers poster on my office wall. I’m in the tank for the man.

So yes, I’m very much looking forward to his next film, Free Fire, which is finished and awaiting a release date as we speak. In the meantime, we can enjoy the first image from the movie, which shows off the awesome ensemble in some colorful duds.

Brie Larson Saturday Night Live

This Mother’s Day weekend, it seemed appropriate that the host of Saturday Night Live was Brie Larson, fresh off her Oscar-winning role as a traumatized but strong mother in the adaptation of Room. In adorable fashion, Larson’s real mother was in attendance for SNL and even made an appearance with a few of the other cast members’ mothers. As for the rest of the show, it was hit or miss, but the most surprising aspect was how SNL chose to tackle political satire this week, and it worked better than most of the other sketches they’ve tossed up this election season. Plus, there’s a pretty damn great Game of Thrones sketch to check out as well.

We run through all the best and worst sketches from the Brie Larson Saturday Night Live episode after the jump. Read More »

The Golden Globes were last night, but the Awards season is far from over, as the Oscars and more events are still to come. Generally one of the few joys of all this awards coverage are The Hollywood Reporter roundtables, which puts some of the most talked about actors, writers, directors, and more artists in a room together for an hour. This year’s actress roundtable features Carey Mulligan (Suffragette), Jennifer Lawrence (Joy), Cate Blanchett (Carol), Jane Fonda (Youth), Brie Larson (Room), Helen Mirren (Woman in Gold), Charlotte Rampling (45 Years), and Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs).
