Ana Lily Amirpour‘s debut feature, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, felt simultaneously fresh and familiar: it borrowed from the iconography of several decades’ worth of cinema, but it combined those elements in a way we’d never quite seen before. Her sophomore effort, The Bad Batch, looks every bit as attention-grabbing. Suki Waterhouse and Jason Momoa star as two very different people whose paths collide in a dusty dystopia overrun by cannibals, while Keanu Reeves shows up late in the game as a charismatic cult leader.

But if it entices you, click through to get a little taste of this weird, colorful world that’s equal parts Mad Max and Spring Breakers. Watch the first The Bad Batch teaser trailer below.

Production on the first big screen iteration of Aquaman is scheduled to being in just a few months. The film is currently in pre-production, and part of the preparation includes getting the principal cast together with director James Wan for a table read.

Tom Hardy is coming to FX next week with a new series called Taboo that sees him inheriting what’s left of his father’s shipping empire in 1814, bringing with him a ruthless attitude for dealing with his competitors and anyone who stands in his way. It appears merging deadly, strong lead characters with business from centuries ago is a popular trend in TV right now, because Jason Momoa is venturing even further back in time for a new series on Netflix.
Frontier sees Jason Momoa as Declan Harp, a fur trader who is driven by lust and revenge, basically a Khal Drogo for the late 1700s. Harp finds himself warring with various factions for control of the North American fur trade, and all the power, money and glory that goes with it. In the first Frontier trailer, you can see that Jason Momoa is all business. Watch it below. Read More »
Since we’re coming to the end of 2016, movie studios are starting to push a preview of what’s in store for the big screen in 2017, especially on the blockbuster front. It’s going to be another crowded summer, but one of the more anticipated movies of the year won’t be arriving until this fall, and that’s Justice League. But that’s not stopping Warner Bros. Pictures from stirring up some hype.
Even though we have still a little under 11 months away from the release of Justice League, the studios included mention of the movie in their 2017 movie preview press kit. Within their brief bit of information on the superhero ensemble movie, they included one cast member who hadn’t yet been confirmed by the studio, and one that we hadn’t heard of at all yet.

The tragic saga of Relativity’s The Crow reboot continues, this time with an unexpected twist: it’s not actually Relativity’s The Crow reboot anymore. The project has left its longtime nest at the studio, landing now with Davis Films, Highland Film Group, and Electric Shadow.
Edward R. Pressman, who produced the 1994 movie starring Brandon Lee, remains on board to produce the new film. However, it’s unclear what this means for director Corin Hardy and star Jason Momoa, who are the latest in a long, long line of director/star combos who’ve tried to get The Crow off the ground.

Two weeks ago we got our first look at Mera, the Queen of Atlantis and wife of Aquaman (Jason Momoa). She plays a role in Zack Snyder‘s Justice League, which recently wrapped shooting in London, but the size of her role in that film remains unknown.

Production on Justice League is finished in the United Kingdom, but the film is still shooting overseas, this time in Iceland. Since director Zack Snyder is shooting on location in the country for scenes that will take place in Amnesty Bay, the hometown of Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Warner Bros. Pictures must have assumed that paparazzi would be shooting photos of the various actors on set for these scenes, so they decided to beat them to the punch.
