Last night, Paramount Pictures and Dreamworks released five brief teaser trailers for the upcoming English-language live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell starring Scarlett Johansson attached to the finale of Mr. Robot (a clever place to premiere the spots if you ask me).

Famous people are used to shill for politicians all the time. But unlike making a decision on which soft drink, pizza or shoes you’re going to buy, choosing to vote is a much bigger deal. That’s why a new campaign called Save the Day has called upon an endless array of famous people to encourage you to vote.
Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Keegan-Michael Key, James Franco, Julianne Moore, Stanley Tucci, Nathan Fillion and a bunch more familiar faces (and some not so familiar) were rounded up to create this video that encourages people to register to vote. However, while this starts out like any other pro-voting campaign, it takes one hilarious turn right after the other, right down to a promise made by all the celebrities that Mark Ruffalo is tragically unaware of. Just watch the video below. Read More »

Captain America: Civil War was a somber affair, and understandably so — the film rocked the very notion of the Avengers to its very core by pitting hero against hero and friend against friend. It was downright heartbreaking to see Steve and Tony come to blows despite their own best efforts to reach a common ground, and then to see the rest of the Avengers forced to pick sides.
But behind the scenes, it was a whole other story. With the film’s home video release just around the corner, Marvel Studios has released the Civil War blooper reel, and it’s silly, endearing stuff. Captain America may be going through some heavy stuff, but Chris Evans is enjoying the hell out of himself, and Sebastian Stan smiles more in these few minutes than Bucky probably has in the past 70 years. Scarlett Johansson‘s tough action hero schtick gets undermined by faulty equipment, and Robert Downey Jr. just can’t help getting in a snarky remark or two. Anthony Mackie, Jeremy Renner, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, and Martin Freeman all make appearances as well. Read More »
The cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming is already pretty crowded. Tom Holland has the role of the new Spidey, Michael Keaton has been presumed to take the role of the villain Vulture, Robert Downey Jr. will be appearing as Tony Stark, Marisa Tomei is back as Aunt May and some of Peter’s classmates will be played by Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Jacob Batalon and Laura Harrier (find out who they’re playing right here).
Now one more name has been added to the cast, and he’s a recent UFC champion. Plus, there’s a rumor circulating from the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming down in Atlanta that another Avenger may be making an appearance. Find out more about each of the additions to the Spider-Man Homecoming cast after the jump. Read More »

Ghost in the Shell has already come under fire from fans unhappy that the Japanese tale is getting remade with a white lead. So far, the production’s strategy has seemingly to try and downplay the property’s Japanese roots, with producer Steven Paul defending his “international approach” and Scarlett Johansson‘s character simply being called “the Major” (as opposed to Motoko Kusanagi, which is her name in the source material).
Which makes it all the more confusing to learn that Johansson’s Major may be Japanese after all. At the very least, it seems she has a Japanese mother. Read More »

DreamWorks adaptation of the anime Ghost in the Shell has come under fire for whitewashing by casting Scarlett Johansson in the lead role as Kusanagi, a cyborg that is a part of an elite cybercrime-fighting task force known as Section 9. However, there will be some Asian talent on board the project in key roles in a poor attempt to heal the wounds left by this increasingly annoying method of casting.
Takeshi Kitano has already been brought in to play Daisuke Aramaki, the chief of Public Security Section 9. Now Japanese actress Rila Fukushima, who had her breakout role as Yukio in The Wolverine back in 2013, has come on board. More below. Read More »

We’ve seen Scarlett Johansson do everything from arthouse sci-fi to indie rom-com to big-budget action over the past few years, but her latest new project, Rock That Body, takes her into still new territory: the R-rated comedy. Luckily, she’ll have some experienced comedy vets on hand to help her out. Kate McKinnon (Ghostbusters), Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street), and Ilana Glazer (Broad City) have just joined Johansson and Zoë Kravitz in Rock That Body, which comes from Broad City writers Paul W. Downs and Lucia Aniello. Downs (who also plays Trey on Broad City) will co-star, and Aniello will direct. Read More »
