As the very positive reviews for Captain America: Civil War have begun to arrive on the internet, many critics have addressed how well the movie has been sold to audiences. It seems that the important beats, characters, and sequences have been left out of the marketing altogether, preserving more than a few surprises for audiences who buy tickets for the film when it opens in a few weeks. One those characters absent from every trailer, clip, TV spot, and poster is Baron Zemo, the old school Captain America villain who is played by Rush and Inglourious Basterds star Daniel Brühl in the film.
And while we’ll probably have to wait until the film is released to get a look at the character in motion or to hear him speak, the first official look at the character is here and…well, it’s not what you’d expect.

The current career choices of Emma Watson and Daniel Brühl deserve some consideration. She is an actress known around the globe for playing a lead character in one of the most popular film franchises of all time. He’s the promising young star of Rush and Inglourious Basterds who will soon be paying his superhero dues as a villain in Captain America: Civil War. Both look to be straddling that fine line between being chasing movie stardom and doing good work in smaller films, carefully selecting projects and roles that won’t pigeonhole them or reduce them to a type. These two are increasingly exciting performers because they’re actively pushing themselves in new directions and genres, working under interesting filmmakers.
Colonia finds the two of them sharing the spotlight, playing a young couple who are find themselves trapped in a cult following a violent political revolution. More than anything, the new trailer for the film is a reminder that Watson and Brühl aren’t slacking off with easy material. This looks intense and mean and the kind of thing that you need to help balance out the Harry Potter and the Marvel on your filmography.

Following the first trailer for Hulu’s cult-centric drama series The Path, we’re heading into the compound of another cult with a second trailer for the thriller Colonia starring Emma Watson and Daniel Brühl. Inspired by real events, the film takes us back to Chile in 1973 when a woman named Lena (Watson) sees her boyfriend (Brühl) taken to a stronghold called Colonia Dignidad, and the only way to get him back is to infiltrate the cult herself.

It’s long been assumed that Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man would make his debut in Captain America: Civil War — so long, in fact, that you’d be forgiven for thinking it was officially confirmed fact. But until now, it’s really just been a rumor (albeit one based on lots of circumstantial evidence).
So it’s with great relief that we can report once and for all that, yes, Spider-Man will be in Captain America: Civil War. That is, unless Marvel Studios changes its mind and decides to cut him out.

Bradley Cooper has already been nominated for an Oscar four times, and The Weinstein Company is probably hoping that he can get another nomination as a struggling chef desperately trying to make a comeback in a big way.
Burnt sees Cooper play Adam Jones, a former star chef who landed two coveted Michelin stars, and as one of the characters in the new Burnt trailer says, you have to be like Luke Skywalker in order to get just one of them. But what if he’s more like the Darth Vader of chefs? Either way, Jones now wants his third Michelin star, and he’s pulling out all the stops to make it happen. Read More »

Production is underway on Captain America: Civil War right now down in Atlanta, Georgia, and with a whole bunch of The Avengers (new and old) on the cast roster, it’s safe to say we can expect a pretty massive flick.
