pale blue dot first look

Natalie Portman plays an astronaut who loses touch with reality in Noah Hawley‘s upcoming drama Pale Blue Dot. And in our first look at the film, perhaps that first starts with her haircut.

Fox Searchlight has released a first image of Portman in character as a married NASA astronaut who returns home and begins an affair with a fellow astronaut (Jon Hamm), only to steadily spiral out of control.

good omens sneak peek

Heaven help us, our first glimpse of Good Omens has arrived. A behind-the-scenes Good Omens sneak peek has been released, giving us a glimpse at the Amazon miniseries starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen. And the series looks as offbeat and weird as the Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett 1990 novel that inspired it — and as amazing as Michael Sheen’s platinum blonde hair.

Tag - Jeremy Renner's Broken Arms

One of the more unique offerings coming to theaters this summer is the comedy Tag. Based on a surprisingly true story, the film follows a group of friends played by Jon Hamm, Jeremy Renner, Ed Helms, Jake Johnson, Isla Fisher and Hannibal Buress who who have played a game of tag one month out of the year for around 30 years. Even though the premise is far more simple than your average summer blockbuster, the movie will feature a surprising amount of CGI for one very specific reason.

You might remember hearing that Jeremy Renner broke his arms last summer. Funnily enough, he didn’t break them while filming his role as Hawkeye while shooting an Avengers movie. Instead, he broke them during a stunt that went a little awry while shooting Tag, and Renner ended up having to wear a couple green screen casts that will be digitally removed in the movie.

Dan Stevens Pale Blue Dot

Ever since he managed to do the impossible and adapt the Coen Brother’s Oscar-winning movie Fargo into a terrific TV series for FX, I’ve been patiently waiting to see what Noah Hawley would do in the world of movies. After a brief flirtation with Universal’s Dark Universe (RIP, we barely knew ye) and creating the brain-melting series Legion, Hawley lined up his feature directing debut, an astronaut drama called Pale Blue Dot. Now he’s bringing his Legion star along for the ride – Dan Stevens has just signed on play a supporting part.

Tony Gilroy interview

27 years after Tony Gilroy wrote Beirut, it’s finally reaching theaters. Long before his time on the Bourne franchise, directing Michael Clayton and Duplicity, and his work on Rogue One: A Story Wars Story, Gilroy penned a story about Mason Skiles (Jon Hamm), a troubled, grieving, and alcoholic negotiator who returns to Beruit 10 years after a personal tragedy to negotiate the freedom of a CIA agent and former friend.

When Gilroy first wrote the script for Interscope, the thriller garnered the attention of movie stars and drew some controversy, but ultimately, the expensive project went unmade. Four or five years ago, there was new interest in Beirut, so Gilroy spent a week or two revising the script before the director behind Session 9 and Transiberian, Brad Anderson, went to shoot the movie in Morocco.

Gilroy also had the chance to look back on some old writing of his, to see how his writing had changed. It was an experience the writer and director recently told us about in a wide-ranging interview about mistakes young writers make, great dialogue, writing “the best of the best” type of characters, why he doesn’t want to write true stories, and more.

Below, read our Tony Gilroy interview.

Mr. Sinister in Wolverine 3

So, what’s going on behind the scenes of The New Mutants? Director Josh Boone‘s horror-tinged X-Men movie has undergone numerous delays and rumors have swirled that up to 50% of the film needs to be reshot. Whether this was damage control or 20th Century Fox attempting to simply make a good film into a great one has remained cloaked in secrecy. Now, a new report sheds some light on exactly what’s going on with this film.

Oh, and it also reveals that Mad Men star Jon Hamm was, at one point, going to appear as classic X-Men villain Mr. Sinister. But not anymore.
