Dan Stevens Pale Blue Dot

Ever since he managed to do the impossible and adapt the Coen Brother’s Oscar-winning movie Fargo into a terrific TV series for FX, I’ve been patiently waiting to see what Noah Hawley would do in the world of movies. After a brief flirtation with Universal’s Dark Universe (RIP, we barely knew ye) and creating the brain-melting series Legion, Hawley lined up his feature directing debut, an astronaut drama called Pale Blue Dot. Now he’s bringing his Legion star along for the ride – Dan Stevens has just signed on play a supporting part.

Tony Gilroy interview

27 years after Tony Gilroy wrote Beirut, it’s finally reaching theaters. Long before his time on the Bourne franchise, directing Michael Clayton and Duplicity, and his work on Rogue One: A Story Wars Story, Gilroy penned a story about Mason Skiles (Jon Hamm), a troubled, grieving, and alcoholic negotiator who returns to Beruit 10 years after a personal tragedy to negotiate the freedom of a CIA agent and former friend.

When Gilroy first wrote the script for Interscope, the thriller garnered the attention of movie stars and drew some controversy, but ultimately, the expensive project went unmade. Four or five years ago, there was new interest in Beirut, so Gilroy spent a week or two revising the script before the director behind Session 9 and Transiberian, Brad Anderson, went to shoot the movie in Morocco.

Gilroy also had the chance to look back on some old writing of his, to see how his writing had changed. It was an experience the writer and director recently told us about in a wide-ranging interview about mistakes young writers make, great dialogue, writing “the best of the best” type of characters, why he doesn’t want to write true stories, and more.

Below, read our Tony Gilroy interview.

So, what’s going on behind the scenes of The New Mutants? Director Josh Boone‘s horror-tinged X-Men movie has undergone numerous delays and rumors have swirled that up to 50% of the film needs to be reshot. Whether this was damage control or 20th Century Fox attempting to simply make a good film into a great one has remained cloaked in secrecy. Now, a new report sheds some light on exactly what’s going on with this film.

Oh, and it also reveals that Mad Men star Jon Hamm was, at one point, going to appear as classic X-Men villain Mr. Sinister. But not anymore.

tag trailer

The internet was in an uproar when Jeremy Renner was nowhere to be seen in the latest Avengers: Infinity War trailer. And I, along with the the 12 other Hawkeye fans, were not assuaged by the Russo brothers’ promises that Renner would play an “important part” in the Marvel film.

But no matter. Because we have another movie coming out that’s all about Renner. And judging by the Tag trailer, he has more screen time in this than he ever received in any of the Marvel movies.

jimmy kimmel superhero trailer

There’s nothing like having super friends to make you a special superhero movie trailer based on a comic book you wrote when you were a 10-year-old nerd.

That’s what a flushed Jimmy Kimmel received on his 50th birthday, courtesy of Ben Affleck (his on-and-off boyfriend and actual superhero actor in the upcoming Justice League) and J.J. Abrams. They teamed up with a slew of familiar actors and comedians to create the ultimate superhero team: the Terrific Ten. The Terrific Ten are an invention of 10-year-old Kimmel’s mind, only existing on the worn-out pages of a comic book drawn by the prepubescent talk show host. Until last night.
