Josh Brolin Turned Down Avatar

Not only is director James Cameron being quite ambitious by planning four Avatar sequels that are being shot back-to-back, but he’s making some surprising choices for his cast.

While it was expected that Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana would reprise their roles as Jake Sully, in his Na-vi avatar body, and the Pandora native Neytiri, we’ve since learned that in addition to Sigourney Weaver returning as a new character, the deceased villains played by Stephen Lang and Matt Gerald will somehow be coming back as the same characters. But that doesn’t mean James Cameron didn’t try to bring some new blood in for these movies.

No Country for Old Men and Avengers: Infinity War star Josh Brolin was offered a role in the Avatar sequels, but the actor wasn’t interested, so he turned down the part. That apparently did not sit well with James Cameron. Welcome to your new favorite celebrity feud. Read More »

josh brolin as cable

He’s no Keira Knightley, but Josh Brolin does look plenty proud as Cable in the upcoming Deadpool 2.

Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool marketing machine extraordinaire, posted two first looks at a heavily scarred and cybernetically enhanced Josh Brolin as Cable on his Twitter. And true to form, he threw in a “premium Cable” joke too.

Only the Brave trailer

Joseph Kosinski’s first two films, Tron: Legacy and Oblivion, lived in fantasy land. Both science-fiction movies showed what a precise eye he has, with smooth camerawork and stunning compositions. He’s crafted two lavish, visually appealing films, which, dramatically, sometimes leave more to be desired. The director is taking on more dramatic material with his next feature, Only the Brave, based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots.

Below, watch the Only the Brave trailer.

Deadpool 2

When it comes to 20th Century Fox’s surprise smash hit Deadpool, I’m in the extreme minority of people who just didn’t think the R-rated superhero comedy was very funny. Yes, I know you probably loved it, but comedy is super subjective, and for some reason it just didn’t work for me. But there’s good news for me and the three other people on Earth who didn’t think the film delivered as well as it could have the comedy department: a few of the cast members of Deadpool 2 claim the new sequel will be funnier than the original.

Josh Brolin Wearing The Goonies Costume

Today, Josh Brolin is an Oscar-nominated actor who is playing, not one, but two major comic book characters in the upcoming sequels Deadpool 2 and Avengers: Infinity War. But way back in 1985, Josh Brolin was just a nobody getting his big break as Brandon “Brand” Walsh in the classic adventure movie The Goonies. And he recently paid tribute to his early career in a surprising way.

Josh Brolin took to Instagram a couple days ago with a picture of him decked out in costume for a 1980s party being thrown for his friend, and his wardrobe will look familiar to anyone who remembers his role from the aforementioned directed by Richard Donner and produced by Steven Spielberg.

Avengers Infinity War Set Photo - Thanos

Despite being built up as the greatest threat the Marvel universe has ever faced, Thanos has spent the past five years sitting on his space throne, occasionally popping up to get out-smarted by Ronan the Accuser and make vague threats in post-credits sequences. That is looking to change in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, which will put the big purple menace front-and-center as attempts to do…something. Something evil, for sure. But something.

While comic book readers already have an inkling of what that something could be, co-screenwriter Stephen McFeely has offered up the first hard evidence of what to expect from the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest Big Bad.

sicario sequel

Filming wraps on the Sicario sequel, titled Soldado, in a couple of days in Mexico City. Just the other day, Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water) gave an update on the project, saying, “If Sicario is a film about the militarization of police and that blending over, this is removing the policing aspect from it.” Soldado deals heavily with immigration, so Sheridan and producer Basil Iwanyk (John Wick: Chapter Two) believe the sequel is relevant in more than a few ways. Iwanyk is also confident the sequel is bigger, has more “bells and whistles,” and digs deeper into the characters. Below, learn more about the Sicario sequel. Read More »
