57 minutes ago

Having made his return to the Marvel universe – complete with Infinity Stone in his possession – Marvel has announced that it is set to explore the mystery surrounding Wolverine this January, beginning with glimpses of the fan favourite mutant in special after-credit scenes at the end of key Marvel titles.

Lizzy Caplan joining Channing Tatum in Gambit movie

1 hour ago

After years of fumbling the deck, with directors such as Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman passing their hand, and following the news that Gore Verbinksi was in talks to direct, it appears that the Channing Tatum X-Men movie Gambit is gaining some real traction, this time in the form of some positive casting news.

Variety has exclusively revealed that Now You See Me 2, True Blood, Cloverfield, and Masters of Sex star Lizzy Caplan has signed on to play the female lead.

Like everything else about the movie, details on Caplan’s role remain a secret, but Gambit has been described as “the Ocean’s 11 of the comic book genre” and will reference X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men Apocalypse. Recently Tatum, for whom this has been a passion project for years,  revealed they decided to readjust the film’s scope in the wake of Deadpool and Logan‘s success. »

Video Game Review – Star Wars Battlefront II

2 hours ago

Shaun Munro reviews Star Wars Battlefront II…

Though it was easy to be optimistic about EA and Dice’s follow-up to 2015’s enjoyable-yet-malnourished Star Wars Battlefront reboot, the end result is one of the most depressingly, dispiritingly botched sequels to a hit Aaa game this generation. From its infuriating, predatory progression system to a campaign that fails to live up to EA’s chest-thumping hype, Battlefront II is a stylishly efficient shooter with remarkably little behind its slick visage.

The previous game was lauded for its stringent adherence to the tone and aesthetic of Star Wars while heavily criticised for its piecemeal suite of content, and EA’s marketing push ahead of this sequel’s release was incredibly effective in arguing that the follow-up was going to be a content-rich apology for its predecessor’s foibles.

Sadly, that’s not really the case at all, and EA’s decision not »

Is Justice League’s Steppenwolf the worst superhero movie villain ever?

3 hours ago

Anghus Houvouras on whether Justice League’s Steppenwolf is the worst superhero movie villain ever…

Yes. Totally. I don’t even think this is debatable. I’m curious to see if anyone steps up to defend the opposing position. Marvel and DC villains have been notoriously terrible. You can name all the good/interesting villains on one hand.

Loki (Thor movies, Avengers) – A no-brainer. Tom Hiddleston has been a gift to the McU.

Zod (Man of Steel) – Not everyone liked Michael Shannon’s mega-intense portrayal of Zod, but I found him interesting.

Zemo (Captain America: Civil War) – Another polarizing choice. For me, the idea of a man seeking revenge for the collateral damage cause by super heroes is interesting and Daniel Bruhl’s quiet, cerebral interpretation of the character was well done.

It’s kind of frightening that there have been over 20 Marvel and Dceu movies and after three villains »

Denis Villeneuve says his Dune movie won’t take inspiration from David Lynch’s adaptation

4 hours ago

Following his work on Arrival and Blade Runner 2049, filmmaker Denis Villeneuve is set to return to the sci-fi genre for his next project, an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic novel Dune.

Villeneuve’s adaptation won’t be the first time that the 1965 book has been brought to the screen, with David Lynch helming a rather divisive take on the material in 1984, which was slammed by many critics and fans of the book, but has since developed its own cult following.

Speaking to CinemaBlend, Villeneuve has revealed that he won’t be taking any inspiration from Lynch’s film, and is instead looking to make “the adaptation of my dreams”.

“It will not have any link with the David Lynch movie,” said Villeneuve. “I’m going back to the book, and going to the images that came out when I read it. I mean David Lynch is one of the best filmmakers alive, »

Fans petitioning Warner Bros. to release Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League

7 hours ago

While director Zack Snyder certainly has his critics, he’s also got a very devoted fan base – one which has launched a new campaign for Warner Bros. to release his original version of Justice League with a petition on Change.org which has so far attracted almost 60,000 signatures.

“We the undersigned make this petition, because during the last few months, the film Justice League underwent a few changes in terms of composer and runtime,” reads the petition. “Zack Snyder, director of the film, screened Justice League to Warner Bros. executives earlier this year, they where happy with the film, but the director himself felt the film needed something more, he contacted Joss Whedon, director of The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, to write a few additional scenes with plans to shoot them over the summer, but an unfortunate tragedy in his family happened and he understandably had to step down, »

Alleged plot details for Quentin Tarantino’s latest film emerge, Manson murders not the main focus

7 hours ago

When news first broke that director Quentin Tarantino was working on his next film, it was believed that the director was creating a film based around the Charles Manson murders. What made this rumor seem even more likely was the fact that Tarantino was looking for actresses to play Sharon Tate (with Margot Robbie said to be the frontrunner).

Well, it seems that Tarantino’s actual idea differs a bit from initial rumors, though it will involve Sharon Tate to some degree.

According to Vanity Fair, the film centers around a “TV actor who’s had one hit series and [is] looking for a way to get into the film business.”  He also has a “sidekick – who’s also his stunt double”. Both characters are looking to become famous in 1960’s Hollywood. The Manson murders will apparently be a secondary plot of some kind, and the inclusion of Tate as a »

StudioCanal bringing Enid Blyton’s The Magic Faraway Tree to the big screen

7 hours ago

StudioCanal has announced that it is teaming with Neal Street productions to bring Enid Blyton’s The Magic Faraway Tree series to the big screen, with Simon Farnaby (Paddington 2) penning the script.

The film will mark the first ever feature-film adaptation of Blyton’s book series, which was written between 1939 and 1951 and consists of four novels: The Enchanted Wood, The Magic Faraway Tree, The Folk of the Faraway Tree and Up the Faraway Tree. All four books have been optioned by Neal Street.

Each story takes place in the enchanted wood in which The Magic Faraway Tree grows – tall enough to reach the clouds and large enough to contain small houses. At the top of the tree is an ever-rotating series of fantastic worlds, everything from the Land of Birthdays to the Land of Topsy-Turvy. Discovered by our child heroes, the tree and wood provide the background to their adventures. »

Lord and Miller break silence on Solo: A Star Wars Story: “The experience of shooting the movie was wonderful”

8 hours ago

The expulsion of Phil Lord and Chris Miller from the director’s chairs of Solo: A Star Wars Story is old news at this point. Since then, the film has wrapped under director Ron Howard, and we have been treated to a host of behind-the-scenes images, an actual title, etc. With production over, it’s a good time to wonder what Lord and Miller have to say about the whole fiasco?

Recently, at the Vulture Film Festival, the directing duo hosted a panel, and questions on the topic of the Han Solo spinoff came up (obviously). Here is their response regarding filming, and their termination from the project:

Lord: “The experience of shooting the movie was wonderful. We had the most incredible cast and crew and collaborators. I think in terms of us leaving the project, I think everybody went in with really good intentions and our approach to making »
