Independence Day: Resurgence Director Disappointed

Even though Independence Day: Resurgence raked in nearly $390 million at the worldwide box office, it was still quite the disappointment for 20th Century Fox. The film didn’t land well with critics either, earning just a 29% on Rotten Tomatoes, not to mention a 30% from audiences. They weren’t the only ones disappointed, because director Roland Emmerich has found himself regretting ever making the movie. Read More »

Avatar on Disney+

Though imagery from Avatar was featured on press releases when Disney officially acquired 20th Century Fox’s film assets, James Cameron‘s 2009 sci-fi action film has not been listed in any of the announcements about content that will be streaming on the forthcoming Disney+. But that changed today, because Disney is going all-out to make sure you know that Avatar has an exclusive new streaming home, and it will be streaming on Day One of the new service. They even got Cameron to record a video about it. Read More »

the last duel cast

Adam Driver is 35 years old, and he’s already worked with filmmakers like Clint Eastwood, Steven Spielberg, Jim Jarmusch, Terry Gilliam, and the Coen Brothers, just to name a few. And very soon, he may add Sir Ridley Scott to his impressive list of collaborators.

Driver is currently in early talks to join the cast of The Last Duel, Scott’s upcoming period piece that has Matt Damon set to star in one of the lead roles. And while Damon was originally said to be facing off against his old pal Ben Affleck in this movie, it now appears that Driver will be taking the role that was seemingly intended for Affleck, while Affleck himself shifts into a supporting role instead.

doug liman gambit

Doug Liman has been attached to a couple comic book properties over the years, neither of which made their way beyond the planning stages. First there was 20th Century Fox’s embattled X-Men spin-off Gambit, which Liman left before shortly boarding and departing Warner Bros.’ Justice League Dark. But it’s not because the Edge of Tomorrow director is trying to live by his acclaimed 2014 film’s mantra of “live, die, repeat” in his career. Liman revealed why he left both projects, and why the Gambit movie is officially dead in the dust.

jojo rabbit featurette

Right up to the day of Jojo Rabbit‘s theatrical release, Fox Searchlight keeps rolling out the clips and featurettes, this time giving a peek into the making of Taika Waititi‘s anti-hate satire. But the new Jojo Rabbit featurette, which gives a behind-the-scenes look at the production of the film alongside the requisite glowing words from the stars, actually does a good job of addressing some of the criticisms levied against the movie. Watch the Jojo Rabbit featurette below.

“This table is Switzerland,” Scarlett Johansson‘s Rosie declares in the new Jojo Rabbit clip — which is a bit of a different game to play with her son Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) than “The floor is lava.” Because there’s not much fun to be had in this game between mother and son at political odds in World War II Germany. Rosie is tired of war and the oppressive Nazi regime, while Jojo is fully indoctrinated into the Nazi beliefs, passionately declaring that Germany will defeat its enemies. It’s certainly a different kind of dinner-time argument in the new Jojo Rabbit clip below.

kingsman 3 script

Matthew Vaughn is rapidly expanding his Kingsman movie franchise, which began with the hit 2014 adaptation of the Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar comic, Kingsman: The Secret Service. But while we can soon expect the Ralph Fiennes-starring prequel film The King’s Man and potential TV series, we haven’t heard much news about Kingsman 3. However, Kingsman star Taron Egerton has confirmed that the third Kingsman film already has a script. And if there’s a Kingsman 3 script, then news of production is probably not too far away.

Scarlett Johansson knees Sam Rockwell in the crotch in an office filled with Nazi clones: It sounds like the beginning of the most absurd joke, but it is in fact part of Taika Waititi‘s anti-hate satire Jojo Rabbit. 20th Century Fox has released a new Jojo Rabbit clip which unveils just a little more of this bizarre, heartfelt comedy about a young German boy (Roman Griffin Davis) in Nazi Germany whose imaginary friend is Adolf Hitler. Watch the new Jojo Rabbit clip below.

the king's man new york comic-con 2019

Matthew Vaughn is no stranger to taking a beloved property and crafting a fresh, energetic origin story out of it. But this time, with The King’s Man, he gets to do it to his own movies. Vaughn’s Kingsman films, loosely based off of Mark Millar’s comic books, followed a fictional secret service organization that presented a hyperviolent twist on the concept of the gentleman spy. With his upcoming action spy film, The King’s Man, Vaughn gets to explore the origins of that secret service organization while paying homage to classic cinema.

Vaughn took the stage at 20th Century Fox’s New York Comic-Con panel Thursday with the stars of his upcoming film The King’s ManRalph Fiennes, Harris Dickinson, and Djimon Hounsou. Here’s what we learned at The King’s Man New York Comic-Con 2019 panel.

It was a dark and stormy day in New York City, the perfect day for brightly costumed superheroes to come out in droves and crowd the New York streets and subways. But there’s one superhero that stands apart from the rest. He’s a guy simply named Guy, and he’s not actually the hero of the story. An NPC (non-playable character) in a video game, Guy is a simple-minded bank teller played by Ryan Reynolds and the unwitting protagonist of the upcoming Shawn Levy-directed action-comedy Free Guy.

At 2019’s New York Comic-Con, the 20th Century Fox panel rolled out the red carpet for Reynolds and Levy, as well as the all-star cast that includes Taika Waititi, Jodie Comer (Killing Eve), Joe Keery (Stranger Things), Lil Rel Howery (Get Out), and Utkarsh Ambudkar (Pitch Perfect). Here’s everything that /Film learned at the Free Guy New York Comic-Con 2019 panel.
