I had completely forgotten that Glen Powell was writing a Captain Planet movie. We first wrote about that news about two years ago, after Powell’s breakout role in Richard Linklater’s college baseball comedy Everybody Wants Some!! but long before he earned Internet’s Boyfriend status with his role in Netflix’s romantic comedy Set It Up and snagged a role alongside Tom Cruise in Top Gun: Maverick.
But in a new interview, Powell has given some insight into his take on a film adaptation of the 1990s eco-friendly cartoon, and he calls his script “subversive” and “irreverent”. Keep reading for more of his comments about his Captain Planet movie.

The romantic comedy genre has suffered tremendously over the past twenty years as mid-budget movies have practically ceased to exist, but with the proliferation of streaming services today, we may be in the midst of a rom-com mini-renaissance.

Two Brits don American — and in Henry Cavill‘s case, heavily Southern — accents to portray soldiers in the upcoming Netflix war drama, Sand Castle.
Set in 2003 during the occupation of Iraq, a group of American soldiers are tasked to repair a water pumping station in a dangerous rural village, but things don’t go quite as planned. Nicholas Hoult is the naive American private at the center of this drama, based on the experiences of screenwriter Chris Roessner, who “learns the true cost of war.”

Well, everything else from the ’90s is getting rebooted, so it was surely just a matter of time before we wound up here: Paramount is looking to make a Captain Planet movie, with Leonardo DiCaprio on board to produce.

John Glenn might get most of the glory for being the first American to orbit Earth, but behind him were dozens of brilliant scientists, mathematicians, and engineers, and more working to make his journey happen. The new movie Hidden Figures tells the story of three of them.
Taraji P. Henson leads the cast as NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2015 for her pioneering work. Octavia Spencer plays fellow NASA mathematician Dorothy Vaughn, and Janelle Monáe rounds out the central trio as NASA engineer Mary Jackson.
Also starring are Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Aldis Hodge, Mahershala Ali, and Glen Powell as John Glenn. Watch the first Hidden Figures trailer below. Read More »
Richard Linklater is using the momentum he built with Before Midnight and Boyhood to finally move forward on That’s What I’m Talking About, the film that has been described as a “spiritual sequel” to Dazed & Confused. It’s not an actual sequel, but a 1980-set film that follows set of characters as they go to college. Now Megan Ellison has come on board as a producer, and Annapurna Pictures will partially back the project, with Paramount set to release it in the US. Read More »
