There’s going to be a bit of a dynamic shift going on with the script for Captain Marvel. For the past few years, Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) were writing the script, which would be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck of Mississippi Grind.

Now it looks like they are bringing in a new writer. According to a report, Gotham City Sirens writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet will now be penning the script. More on this below.

The Glass Castle starring Brie Larson and Naomi Watts

Yes, Brie Larson already has one Academy Award on her mantle. But in reality, that number should be two with her flawless performance in Destin Daniel Cretton‘s Short Term 12. The emotionally draining film had me in tears and was my number one film of 2013.

Nearly four years after Short Term 12, the two reunite for The Glass Castle, an adaptation of Jeanette Walls‘ memoir. Lionsgate has dropped the first trailer for the film. Check it out below.

Captain Marvel

Marvel Studios certainly has an eye for finding talented directors. In their search for a director for Captain Marvel, the studio considered Niki Caro (Whale Rider, MacFarland, USA), Lesli Linka Glatter (TV’s Mad Men), and Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World).

But it seems like those reports were off just a bit. There’s word that the duo who have worked on Half Nelson, It’s Kind of a Funny Story, and Mississippi Grind together, Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, will direct Marvel’s first female-led superhero flick starring Brie Larson. More on the story below.

Kong Skull Island first image

Kong: Skull Island
Director: Jordan Vogt-Roberts
Screenwriter: Dan Gilroy, Max Borenstein, Derek Connolly
Cast: Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell, John Ortiz, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Shea Whigham, Thomas Mann, Terry Notary, John C. Reilly
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated PG | 118 Minutes
Release Date: March 10, 2017

“Hold onto your butts,” United States Army Lieutenant Colonel Preston Packard (Samuel L. Jackson) proclaims as he and his squad act as a military escort for an expedition team that charts a newly discovered island. You may have heard that line before in Jurassic Park, but the anxiousness that swells over before the outcome is the same nonetheless. In fact, that’s the kind of feeling you get when watching Kong: Skull Island. The unconventional story of the King of the Monsters doesn’t rehash the story that has been retold countless times; instead, it focuses solely on the island itself and the monsters that inhabit it. Check out the full review below.

‘Kong Skull Island’ Trailer: There’s A Reason Why Kong Is King On This Island

Kong: Skull Island Header

Perhaps the most interesting thing about the upcoming Kong: Skull Island is that the film is a period piece, that takes place almost entirely on the titular island. Set in the 1970s, an expedition team sets out to chart the recently discovered island only to find out that there are dark secrets and scary beasts that roam the land.

Previous trailers pretty much set the narrative and loose connections to the King of Monsters universe, that Warner Bros and Legendary are creating, but now this new trailer is all about the action between the humans killing the oversized monsters and Kong, who is king of the island.

Check out the newest trailer below.

Kong: Skull Island Final Trailer

Back in July during San Diego Comic-Con the first trailer for Kong: Skull Island was released to the masses. The movie is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer), and stars Tom Hiddleston (Thor, Crimson Peak), Brie Larson (Room, United States of Tara), Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, The Hateful Eight), John Goodman (10 Cloverfield Lane, Monsters Inc.), Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton, The Walking Dead), Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Warcraft), Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton, Keanu), Shea Whigham (Boardwalk Empire, True Detective), and John C.

Now the official trailer for the movie has been unleashed by Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, and can be seen below. The new trailer is only slightly longer than the first trailer’s 2:19 run time, but includes a bunch of good looks at King Kong, who we previously only had one good peek at in that recent image, as well as some other creatures who call Skull Island home. In addition to the new trailer, a pair of new posters have also been released. Continue below to check them out.

Brie Larson in Free Fire

Ben Wheatley has certainly been making a name for himself in the past few years. For those who may not know who he is, the filmmaker has previously directed Down Terrace and High-Rise. The latter, which starred Tom Hiddleston, was released earlier this year.

And now a trailer for his latest feature, Free Fire, starring Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, and Sharlto Copley has finally arrived. Check out the trailer below. Oh, and it is a red band NSFW kind of trailer.
