There’s a lot of sandy ground to cover with Dune, and one movie might not cut it. Director Denis Villeneuve‘s star-studded Dune adaptation is currently filming, but will there be more to come? Villeneuve has hinted in the past that he’d like to make more than one film to bring Frank Herbert’s sci-fi epic to life, and as of now, that seems to be the plan. In a new interview, Legendary CEO Joshua Grode confirms that at least one Dune sequel is being planned – although that could change.

Remember when Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito played brothers in the 1988 comedy Twins? Well, we’re about to see that comedy formula put to the test again with a new comedy called Brothers at Legendary Entertainment. The film will see Avengers: Infinity War co-stars Josh Brolin and Peter Dinklage playing a pair of unlikely siblings.

This is starting to get ridiculous. Denis Villeneuve‘s Dune cast seems to grow every single day, and every single announcement features another fine looking specimen. The latest: Jason Momoa, who recently rode box office waves in Aquaman. Momoa is in talks to take on the role of Duncan Idaho, a “fierce swordsmaster.” Duncan Idaho doesn’t exactly sound like a futuristic name, but let’s just go with it anyway.

Josh Brolin, who recently played Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and Cable in Deadpool 2, is heading to outer space as part of the increasingly-awesome Dune cast. Blade Runner 2049 and Sicario director Denis Villeneuve is adapting author Frank Herbert’s acclaimed science fiction novel into two movies, and has already managed to lock down one of the year’s most impressive collections of actors, including Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Stellan Skarsgard, Dave Bautista, Charlotte Rampling, and Javier Bardem. Learn about Brolin’s character below. Read More »
With Sicario: Day of The Soldado, director Stefano Sollima roughened the edges of screenwriter Taylor Sheridan‘s potential trilogy. With Kate Macy (Emily Blunt) no longer around, Sollima felt Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) and Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) unleashed naturally meant things would turn bleaker. A crowd-pleasing thriller Sollima’s sequel is not, and nor should it be.
It’s a suitably bleak and often unpleasant experience that reveals more about Alejandro and Graver without completely stripping them of mystery. The main thrill is watching one of the best actors around, Benicio Del Toro, continue to make you both fearful and empathetic of Alejandro.
With the sequel now available on Blu-ray, we had the chance to ask Sollima about Del Toro’s performance, his time in El Paso and Juarez, long tracking shots, and more.

Update: This piece has been updated in an attempt to clarify the work done by Digital Domain and Weta Digital. You can find out more below, and our original article follows.
13 visual effects vendors collaborated to make 18 digital characters for Avengers: Infinity War, and Josh Brolin‘s villainous Thanos is the most important of them all. The entire movie hinges on that performance, and if you don’t buy him as a living, breathing character, Marvel would have had their own Steppenwolf problem to deal with. Thankfully, Thanos ended up being one of the best CGI villains in cinema history – thanks in large part to the hard-working team at VFX company Digital Domain.
To promote the superhero sequel’s home video release, /Film was invited to take a tour of the company’s L.A. facility and learn the steps they took to bring the Mad Titan to life. I brought a couple of cameras along and put together an in-depth video about how the Thanos visual effects were created and incorporated into the movie.
This goes far beyond those videos that simply show a scene with one VFX layer at a time added into the final version. This is detailed stuff, and I hope you check it out below. Read More »
After making a splash at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International with its extended “Super Duper $@%!#& Cut,” 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool 2 is coming to digital home video tomorrow. A superhero film with an impending home video release? You know what that means: bonus features are beginning to make their way online.
Today, we have a look at the Deadpool 2 blooper reel, which shows stars Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, and Zazie Beetz dropping F-bombs, screwing up their lines, and generally goofing off during the making of the superhero sequel. Check it out below. Read More »
Considering what goes down between Thanos and Gamora in Avengers: Infinity War (I’ll be vague to protect the 1% of you who still haven’t seen the movie), you’d be forgiven if you wanted another scene of the two of them together to make that surprising event feel truly earned. But the theatrical cut of the movie is already 2 hours and 29 minutes, so it’s no surprise that plenty of scenes ended up on the cutting room floor.
With the film out now on Digital HD and about to hit 4K and Blu-ray, another Infinity War deleted scene has hit the internet, and this one attempts to flesh out the Thanos/Gamora relationship in a scene called “A Father’s Choice.”

Jody Hill is trying to warm some hearts with his latest comedy, The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter. The co-creator of Vice Principals and director of Observe and Report hasn’t softened up his humor for his Netflix movie, but the lead characters in his father/son story are certainly far less destructive than his past protagonists. Hill’s first feature film since 2010’s Observe and Report stars Josh Brolin as a hunter and TV show host – and Danny McBride as his trusted and inappropriate cameraman – taking his son Jaden (Montana Jordan) hunting for the first time.
The story, which Hill co-wrote with McBride and John Carcieri (Eastbound & Down), has a surprisingly sweet side to it. The movie will likely feel both familiar and new for Hill’s fans. The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter has the director’s sense of humor, although it’s not quite as dark this time around. Hill says he wanted to do something different. The very polite filmmaker recently told us about the project’s history, watching old ’80s hunting videos, memories from making HBO’s Vice Principals, and more.
