a rainy day in new york shelved

Woody Allen‘s next movie may never see the light of day. The prolific filmmaker recently announced he was taking time off from directing for the first time since 1981, and now comes word that Amazon has shelved his next film, A Rainy Day in New York. Amazon has yet to give a specific reason as to why they’re shelving the movie, but odds are it has a lot to do with the sexual abuse allegations allegations that have followed the director for decades.

Passing movie

Actress Rebecca Hall broke out in 2006 in Christopher Nolan’s The Prestige, and she’s quickly developed a strong career collaborating with talented filmmakers, learning the ropes from the inside. Now she’s ready to make her directorial debut with an adaptation of a 1920s novel called Passing, which deals with the idea of racial passing – posing as a member of one racial group when you’re actually part of another. That’s a topic that’s still as relevant now as it was in the ’20s, and Hall has locked down two excellent actresses to star in the project: Tessa Thompson (Sorry to Bother You) and Ruth Negga (Preacher).

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women Review

It seems Wonder Woman has not one but two origin films in 2017. After breaking the box office and single-handled rescuing the DCEU with Patty JenkinsWonder Woman, the Amazon Warrior’s impetus is explored even further with Angela Robinson’s sweet, funny, and sexy Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.

Robinson’s film follows the people who helped create the most popular female superhero, and it’s not your typical creation tale. Instead, this is a polyamorous love story about the man and two women who fell in love with each other and eventually put their heads and kinks together to create Diana of Themyscira.

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women Trailer

Right now, Wonder Woman is a box office giant after the DC Comics superheroine finally got a big screen adventure all to herself. But back in the 1940s, Wonder Woman was nothing but an idea that was sparked inside the mind of Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston. While many fans may know the origin story of how Wonder Woman came to be an iconic comic book character, they may not know what inspired the character’s creation to begin with.

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women is a new movie from Annapurna Pictures which sets out to tell the story of how Dr. Marston (Luke Evans) found inspiration for Wonder Woman through a polyamorous relationship that he and his wife Elizabeth Marston (Rebecca Hall) had with another woman named Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote). It looks like quite the provocative drama that exposes some of the secrets of Wonder Woman’s origin story.
