Elizabeth Debicki

The Marvel rumor mill can’t seem to stop spinning. Following the rumor that Thor: Ragnarok will incorporate the “Planet Hulk” story arc, comes rumors about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The sequel is currently filming at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, and we still know very little about it aside from the fact that Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), and Groot (Vin Diesel) are probably protecting the galaxy while causing all sorts of trouble.

As little as we know about the plot, we even know less about the new actors that will be joining the cast for the sequel. Aside from the fact that Pom Klementieff will play Mantis, Chris Sullivan is Taserface, Tommy Flanagan will be Tullk, we know that Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell will star in the film as well with one of them presumably playing Star-Lord’s long-lost father, but that is just speculation. This new rumor is centered on Elizabeth Debicki (The Night Manager) and the character she will be playing. More on the story below.

Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor In Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice

When signing on to a superhero movie franchise, it’s very likely that the person in question has signed on for multiple films. Batman v Superman actor Jesse Eisenberg wasn’t sure if he would appear in Justice League: Part One, that or he was just playing coy with the press. But now that enough time has passed and Justice League has started production, the actor is confirming that he is indeed in the film.

This means, if the rumors are true, that we will have at least two villains in the film. More on the story below.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Rumored To Weave “Planet Hulk” Story Arc Into Film Plot
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Planet Hulk

Things are progressing pretty nicely for Taika Waititi and Thor: Ragnarok. The film recently added Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster and Karl Urban as Skurge aka The Executioner. They’re joined on the cast by Cate Blanchett, who plays Hela the Asgardian Goddess of Death, and Tessa Thompson who will play Valkyrie and Thor’s love interest.

Now there are a couple of new rumors surrounding the film. Mark Ruffalo has already said that the film will be a buddy movie that sees the two heroes venturing out on a cosmic journey. How those two get into this precarious situation still isn’t clear. But one rumor is that Thor is searching for a yet to be identified MacGuffin only to get banished to a gladiator-like world where he meets Hulk, who is apparently the reigning champion.

Now there is a new rumor about the new characters that will appear in the final film of the Thor trilogy. More on the story below.

Disney Execs Not Pleased With ‘Rogue One’ First Cut; Expensive Reshoots Planned

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Now that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War have been released and made their respective impacts, the next highly-anticipated big screen blockbuster event of 2016 is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The first in a series of and prequels and spin-offs featuring characters and events integral to the evolution of the Star Wars universe, Rogue One tells the tale of the group of brave Rebellion soldiers who stole the plans to the Death Star that set in motion the narrative of Episode IV: A New Hope.

The first trailer premiered almost two months ago to an enthusiastic worldwide response. Executives at Disney are counting on Rogue One to bring in global box office grosses equal to or greater than those of last December’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but according to a recent article by Page One’s Emily Smith, those same execs are less than thrilled with director Gareth Edwards after viewing his first cut of the film.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Image 06

It’s hard to argue that Jeremy Irons was one of the best parts of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with him spending most of his time with another strong part of the film, Ben Affleck – who also co-wrote the script with fellow Argo writer Chris Terrio. With everything else pretty much a mess, it was hard to see the cast have to answer questions about the flaws and criticisms, especially Affleck who didn’t look all too pleased. But now that we are passed all of that and Justice League: Part One is starting to shoot, it is interesting to hear what the cast really has to say about the film.

Now Irons is opening up about how Batman v Superman deserves all the criticism it got after its release, but he remains optimistic about Justice League: Part One. More on the story below.

Starz Movie Review: ‘The Dresser’ With Sir Anthony Hopkins & Sir Ian McKellan
Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

The Dresser 10

The Dresser
Directed by Richard Eyre
Based on the stage play by Ronald Harwood
Starring Anthony Hopkins, Ian McKellen, Emily Watson, Sarah Lancashire, Edward Fox, Vanessa Kirby, Tom Brooke
Air Date: Monday, May 30th, 2016, 9:00pm

As the Nazis crash bombs down on England, an aging actor looks to enthrall audiences with an epic rendition of King Lear, one more time. The actor is unwell, having just checked himself out of a hospital, and it’s up to his dresser, Norman, to keep him upright and ready despite his wife’s objections and pleas to cancel the show. This is the plot description for The Dresser, based on Ronald Harwood’s play and the 1983 film of the same name, that garnered 5 Oscar nominations including Best Picture, Director, Actor (two), and Screenplay. The movie premieres tonight on Starz, a channel that is gaining a reputation for out of the box thinking. With several successful original series crossing many genres, Starz is building as a rival to pay-cable big boys HBO and Showtime. And in an era where every big movie at the theaters is a special effects comic book blockbuster, it’s refreshing to step back to a time where sets were built by human hands and not computer artists, and the stakes in a performance were truly high.

Spoilers for The Dresser below.

Tom Hiddleston James Bond

Now that Daniel Craig doesn’t seem to be the least bit interested in reprising his role as James Bond, Eon Productions and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are now combing through a list of actors to take the title of 007. As you can imagine, choosing an actor to play such a role is very delicate. But one of the frontrunners named, by the fans, was Tom Hiddleston. If he did join, he join a long list of actors to play James Bond ranging starting from Sean Connery, then moving onto David Niven, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and most recently Craig.

Craig, recently turned down a $100,000,000 offer to reprise James Bond for a final 2-picture deal, and with that it mind, it seems that despite a few denials, a new rumor has popped up saying Hiddleston’s name has reemerged to the forefront.

Indiegogo Spotlight: ‘The Order’ Movie From Former ‘Power Rangers’ Stars
Maximus Prime   |  

The Order Movie Indiegogo Cover

The 1st season of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers aired when I was in 1st grade, 22 years ago. For years, I made sure to watch each new iteration of the team, enamored by the colorful suits, the martial arts action, and the fact that young people were entrusted with saving the world.

I haven’t watched a new season of Power Rangers in quite some time, but I do, however, follow many of the actors on social media — and for the past month or so, some interesting things have occurred. First, many of the original cast and others changed their Facebook profile images to an intriguing symbol. Next, they began posting cryptic messages and videos, hinting at some sort of joint project. Finally, just last week, the group (including 18 former Power Ranger actors), launched a crowdfunding campaign for a film called The Order. Oh, nostalgia, you’ve made your way back to me.

I recently had the opportunity to interview some of the cast about the project and I’m really excited to share it with you all. You can find that and more below.

Alice Through The Looking Glass header image

Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass marks the return of Mia Wasikowska playing the title heroine who must return to Wonderland to help fix the Mad Hatter who is suffering from a depressing stupor. Anne Hathaway also reprises her role as the White Queen, whom we find out has a few skeletons in her closet.

We were recently invited to the film’s press junket where we learned about why the cast wanted to come back to Wonderland, their memories of reading Lewis Carroll, and why Hathaway thinks it is wrong to think of actors as role models. Check it all out below.
