UPDATE 9/14/2015: TheWrap reports Rachel McAdams has confirmed she will indeed star opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in Doctor Strange. Original story from July 25, 2015 follows.
Earlier this month, a rumor surfaced that Rachel McAdams has been offered the female lead in Marvel Studios forthcoming Phase Three film Doctor Strange, starring Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role. But as usual, Marvel didn’t confirm or deny these rumblings, so we were left in the dark as to the truth of the matter.
Now McAdams, who can currently be seen on HBO each Sunday in True Detective, as well as in theaters in Southpaw starting this weekend, has confirmed discussions about taking a role in the Marvel cinematic universe. Find out more about Rachel McAdams in Doctor Strange after the jump! Read More »
Every Thing Will Be Fine is the latest film from Wim Wenders, with James Franco starring in a film about a man whose life is thrown into disarray after a car accident.

In addition to that, we’ve got the Wim Winders touring retrospective that features the 295-minute version of Until the End of the World. (You read that right; it’s a five-hour cut.) Read More »

So far the marketing machine for Antoine Fuqua‘s boxing flick Southpaw has really hit hard. Driven by a pounding soundtrack provided by Eminem, the film starring Jake Gyllenhaal looks like a familiar but powerful drama.
Now yet another new trailer has arrived, fueled by another new track by Eminem. This one features Gwen Stefani, and is called ‘Kings Never Die.’ Will Gyllenhaal find redemption and become king of the ring again? At the very least, it seems like this might get him the Oscar nomination that he should have gotten for his performance in last year’s Nightcrawler.

With Comic Con hitting this week we’ll learn a lot more about projects that are coming up in the next couple years, especially on the superhero front. But even before the big event begins, we’ve got a couple rumors about possible developments for two films we’ll be talking about over the next couple years. One is Doctor Strange, and the rumor isn’t entirely dismissible. The other concerns Fantastic Four 2, and seems more far-fetched. Read More »
The first episode of True Detective‘s second season has aired, and the internet is already working double-time to react to the show’s return. Is it better than the first season, or even as good? Early reviews have some insight, but even they can’t make a definitive claim yet, as HBO only offered access to the first three of eight episodes. Whatever the show is at the opening, there’s a lot left to see.
HBO has offered something new to follow up the season premiere: a brief True Detective behind the scenes look, which features interviews with new stars Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch. Exec producer Scott Stephens shows up, too. You’ll see creator/writer Nic PIzzolatto at work, but he doesn’t appear as an interview; rather, the show is meant to be his voice. Read More »

How do you follow up a performance like the one in Nightcrawler? If you’re Jake Gyllenhaal, you bulk up until you’re nearly unrecognizable as the same guy who played the gaunt and hungry Lou Bloom, and then you get in the ring for director Antoine Fuqua.
In Southpaw, Gyllenhaal plays a boxer who’s on top of the world… until a tragic incident sends his life spinning out of control. After hitting rock bottom, Billy begins the difficult process of scraping himself back together, with the aid of his new mentor Tick (Forest Whitaker). Check out the new Southpaw trailer after the jump. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Director Cameron Crowe returns to theaters this weekend with Aloha, starring Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, and Rachel McAdams. The film looks like a pretty routine romantic comedy thanks to trailers, but in fact there’s more to it than that. The first eight minutes of the film are now online, and the credits sequence introduces a melange of concepts, from the integration of Hawaii to the United States, to the rise and fall of the US space program.
Watch the Aloha opening below, featuring that credits sequence and the first big sequence establishing several of the film’s primary characters. Read More »
There’s a set of four new True Detective season 2 character posters, but they almost do more to obscure the quartet of new leads than they do to reveal them. We see the new leads Taylor Kitsch, Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, but their eyes are all cropped out of each image. There’s an ominous tagline, “We get the world we deserve,” and with these designs we have to wonder if any of these characters can see that new world coming.
See those posters below, and get some comments from creator/writer/producer Nic Pizzolatto about the new season. Read More »
