Justice League is making a last-minute addition to its cast. Julian Lewis Jones has climbed aboard the Zack Snyder-directed adventure, which brings together Ben Affleck‘s Batman, Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill‘s Superman, Ezra Miller‘s The Flash, Jason Momoa‘s Aquaman, and Ray Fisher‘s Cyborg for a superhero showdown.
And while you might assume that an actor cast this late in the game has just a small part in the film, we’re wondering if Jones might actually be playing Steppenwolf, the big bad of Justice League. Lets take a look at the Julian Lewis Jones Justice League casting and more, after the jump. Read More »

If you’re the kind of person who already hates parties and social gatherings, Karyn Kusama‘s The Invitation is going to press your buttons in a very specific and unsettling way. This small-scale, slow-burning, intense gem is a special kind of cinematic nightmare – the one-location thriller where escape simply isn’t an option.
Drafthouse Films has released a new trailer for The Invitation and it’s a good one, playing up the film’s mystery and tension while side-stepping its various twists and turns.

Director Karyn Kusama returns this year with The Invitation, which impressed the hell out of me when it debuted in the Midnight program at the recent SXSW film festival. The film watches as a couple (Logan Marshall-Green and Emayatzy Corinealdi) heads to a dinner party thrown by the guy’s former wife and her new partner (Tammy Blanchard and Michiel Huisman), where signs quickly begin to suggest that things are very much off with the hosts.

The Invitation is a gripping thriller with a really ominous tone and a terrific ending. Now Drafthouse Films has picked up the movie for worldwide distribution. Read More »

You’d think eternal youth and immortality would be gifts, but in TV and movies it’s as often as not a curse. Vampires and mutants alike angst over the unfairness of having to remain young and beautiful while the world spins on. And in The Age of Adaline, Blake Lively joins the pity party.
The Gossip Girl alum plays a 27-year-old woman rendered ageless thanks to a freak accident in the 1930s. As her loved ones start to grow old and die off, she becomes withdrawn — until a handsome man (Michiel Huisman, a.k.a. Daario Naharis v2.0 from Game of Thrones) draws her out of her shell. Ellen Burstyn and Harrison Ford also star. Watch the Age of Adaline trailer after the jump.

Baz Luhrmann‘s razzle-dazzle style isn’t for everyone, and it doesn’t work for every story. But it’s just perfect for high-end perfume ads, which are all about glam and glitz.
This Chanel No. 5 spot stars Gisele Bündchen and Michiel Huisman (of Treme / Orphan Black / Game of Thrones fame) as star-crossed lovers who variously enjoy surfing (her) and Sam Smith-ified Grease covers (him). Hit the jump to see the sumptuous new Baz Luhrmann perfume ad.
