Ocean's 8

In 2018, Ocean’s 8 will reboot the Ocean’s 11 franchise with an all-female cast, and what a cast it is! Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Mindy Kailing, Sarah Paulson, and Awkwafina lead the film, with The Hunger Games‘ director Gary Ross calling the shots. Star Sandra Bullock revealed new Ocean’s 8 details and talked a little about the inevitable online backlash surrounding a rebooted property with an female-centric cast.

Ocean's Eight cameo

17 years after Steven Soderbergh gave us one of the most charismatic casts to grace the screen in the 21st century with Ocean’s 11, we’ll see a new team of thieves form in Ocean’s Eight. Director Gary Ross put together a hell of a crew, too, with Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter. One member of Danny Ocean’s gang will appear with them in the film, and now another actor from Soderbergh’s trilogy is now confirmed to join in on the fun.

It’s a cameo, so it’s a spoiler, but if you want to know who else is making an Ocean’s Eight cameo, find out below.

Spider-Man 4

The cancellation of Spider-Man 4 still feels like a missed opportunity, especially after how The Amazing Spider-Man movies turned out. Sony pulled the plug on what could’ve allowed Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire to send Spider-Man out on a high note. Instead of waiting to get the script right, the studio decided to reboot quickly instead.

You might all recall what went down with the sequel, but ten years after Spider-Man 3 hit theaters, let’s take a quick trip down memory lane and remember the Spider-Man sequel we wanted and never got.

Ocean's 8 (header)

One of New York’s interesting little quirks is that just about everyone takes the train. Even, apparently, criminal masterminds on their way to stage a multimillion-dollar heist at one of the glitziest events of the year. At least that’s my takeaway from our first look at Ocean’s 8, which puts Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) and her crew (including characters played by Cate BlanchettSarah Paulson, and Anne Hathaway) on an MTA subway car. Check it out below.  Read More »

After helping to launch The Hunger Games franchise with a $700M hit, some would assume writer-director Gary Ross wouldn’t have much trouble making another film. And yet, following that box-office and critical success, Ross still struggled to get a passion project of his made. For a decade, the director behind Seabiscuit and Pleasantville worked on Free State of Jones, which has finally made its way to theaters.

Once the Civil War drama, which stars Matthew McConaughey as Newton Knight, acquired financing, Ross still found himself doing whatever he had to do to make the film, including paying a few salaries out of his pocket and working for DGA minimum. The director — who also wrote Dave and co-wrote Big — discussed his latest film and career with us. If you want to know more about Ross’ upcoming Ocean’s 11 spinoff, Ocean’s Eight, click here.

Free State of Jones Trailer

It’s funny to think about just how far Matthew McConaughey has come in the past few years. As recently as 2010, he was better known for his tabloid coverage than or his acting career, which had largely devolved into dumb romcoms and dumber action flicks. But things started to turn around in 2011, with the triple-punch of The Lincoln LawyerBernie, and Killer Joe. These days, he’s got an Oscar on his mantel and has become a staple of serious prestige dramas.

His latest in that genre is Free State of Jones, director Gary Ross‘ follow-up to The Hunger Games. McConaughey plays real-life figure Newton Knight, a Southern farmer who rebelled against the Confederacy and tried to establish a mixed-race community in Mississippi. But before he gets there, he’s a reluctant participant in the Civil War, tasked with repairing men broken by battle. STX Entertainment has just released a five-minute Free State of Jones preview which reveals a major turning point in Knight’s life, and you can watch it after the jump.  Read More »

“We’ll break the cast right now and blow up the Internet,” director Gary Ross joked after we mentioned Ocean’s Eight to him. No, the Free State of Jones writer and director didn’t reveal to us the film’s entire ensemble cast, which has been previously reported or rumored to star Sandra BullockCate BlanchettHelena Bonham CarterMindy Kaling, and Elizabeth Banks. One thing Ross did tell us, however, is that his film is very much a continuation of the tone Steven Soderbergh established with his incredibly entertaining Ocean’s remake trilogy.
