Even as our current James Bond suits up for his next adventure, fans have started talking about about who could, or should, replace Daniel Craig. In particular, there’s been much speculation about whether the next Bond could be played by a non-white actor for the first time in franchise history.
For his part, former Bond Pierce Brosnan says he sees “no reason” why we couldn’t have a black Bond. Meanwhile, Chiwetel Ejiofor (himself a popular fan pick for the role) suggests Michael Peña should be the next one to pick up 007’s signature Walther PPK.

This time, famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson examines the upcoming mission in the style of the recent Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey series.

In a world of kid-friendly CG animations, Hell and Back stands out as an R-rated, stop-motion endeavor. T.J. Miller and Nick Swardson lead the irreverent voice cast as Augie and Remy, who must journey into the underworld to rescue their buddy Curt (Rob Riggle).
Once there, they encounter all manner of colorful characters including a devious demon voiced by Mila Kunis, a sexy angel voiced by Susan Sarandon, and the Devil himself, voiced by Bob Odenkirk.

Before the first trailer for Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi drama The Martian debuted, 20th Century Fox teased the film with a viral video from the video archives of the Ares 3, the latest mission to Mars. And now a second viral video has debuted with Matt Damon and the rest of his crew being interviewed by a NASA psychologist after experiencing 10 days in isolation.
From the video it’s made pretty clear that Damon has no problem being stuck by himself for 10 days, with the most pressing question he has upon emerging being about Aquaman’s abilities. And honestly, it’s a perfectly valid question. Watch The Martian viral video after the jump! Read More »

On October 9 2014 I visited my first Marvel set. The film was Ant-Man, Marvel Studios’ latest gamble and the final film in Phase Two of the company’s influential and uber-successful Marvel Cinematic Universe. I mention it was my first Marvel set visit because, like me, Ant-Man represents many firsts for Marvel. It’s the first time they’ve hired a director, Peyton Reed, just weeks before shooting. It’s the first time their central hero, Scott Lang (played by Paul Rudd), has a family. It’s the first time we’ll see a man shrink down to ride on ant. Those are just the tip of the iceberg.
Below, read 65 things we learned over two days — days 37 and 38 of the 74-day shoot — on the Atlanta set of Ant-Man. There’s also info from a day spent at ILM on June 15, 2015. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
With the release of Ant-Man less than a month away, we’ve already seen quite a bit from the second Marvel Studios film hitting theaters this summer. Paul Rudd looks great in the Ant-Man suit, Corey Stoll‘s Yellowjacket also looks pretty slick, and Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lily will also have plenty to do in the tiny superhero’s first big screen adventure.
But there’s also a whole supporting cast that we haven’t really seen much of in the marketing materials for the film so far. But some new photos from Ant-Man have surfaced giving us a better look at Michael Pena (End of Watch), Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire), David Dastmalchian (The Dark Knight, Prisoners) and rapper turned actor T.I. (Identity Thief). Check out the Ant-Man supporting cast after the jump! Read More »

The ship is in the process of heading to Mars, and all the astronauts are preparing for the mission ahead. It’s a pretty cool way to introduce the characters.
