Outlaw King

Netflix has come a really long way from what it was originally. Now it is in the service of making their own movies which are released exclusively on their streaming platform. Not only that, but they are attracting some A-list stars and filmmakers. Case in point, Outlaw King, starring Chris Pine.

Hell or High Water director David Mackenzie directs this medieval epic, which apparently had its runtime cut down from 137 minutes to 117 minutes. Now a new trailer shows us just how brutal sword clashing can really be. Check it out below.

Chris Hemsworth in Star Trek

There may not be any engaging happening in Star Trek 4 for franchise stars Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth. The two actors, the former of whom is a headline star in the J.J. Abrams rebooted Trek universe, have reportedly exited negotiations over a salary dispute.

Plans for a fourth film have been in the works since 2016’s Star Trek Beyond, where it was announced that Hemsworth would be back. While there have been some positive signs that the film was going in the right direction, this latest development puts the entire sequel in question. More on the story here below.

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Image: Kristen Wiig Gets Some Cheetah Inspiration At A Museum

Kristen Wiig In Last Man On Earth

It’s 1984, the height of the Cold War. And it’s going to be up to Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) to defuse a hostile situation. But it looks like it won’t be easy for her to accomplish that task. Especially when facing off against someone like Cheetah (Kristen Wiig).

We’ve known that Wonder Woman 1984 will take place during the ’80s, with the Cold War having a role in the film. But we will also see another familiar Wonder Woman villain. Wiig’s Cheetah looks to be one of the more developed DCEU villains. That’s because the timid archaeologist is about to be cursed with dark powers that turns her into one of Diana’s greatest foes. And now the first image of Wiig in the film has been released, which you can see below.

Gal Gadot and Chris Pine In Wonder Woman

Production on Wonder Woman 1984 has finally begun. While we could go on and on about how Wonder Woman is one of the only decent film in the DCEU (actually it’s the only good one), you don’t care about that. It’s the headline.

Yes, Chris Pine is back. So while the other Chrises are playing in the Marvel sandbox, it looks like Pine has found a way to come back to DC’s. Only now we should get ready for parachute pants, frizzy hair, and pilot jumpsuits. Check out the image below.

“At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.” — Tzu, Chinese

26 different publishers rejected Madeline L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time when she began shopping the book around in early 1960. The science fantasy story was seen as too complicated or “too adult” for children to comprehend, and publishers of the era believed there wasn’t an audience for books with young female leads. They were wrong. The children’s novel was published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux in 1962, and has since become a beloved classic, praised for encouraging young girls to embrace their love of speculative fiction and pursue careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Now, 55 years later, Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time, a film adaptation directed by Ava DuVernay (Selma, The Thirteenth), hopes to inspire young girls of color similarly. Known for championing diversity and inclusion in Hollywood, DuVernay is the first woman of color to direct a live-action film with a production budget over $100 million. In keeping with her goal to create a more diverse representation on screen, DuVernay chose to stray from L’Engle’s description of the characters and cast actors of all ages, ethnicities, and genders to ensure the timeless story resonates with today’s audiences.

A Wrinkle In Time Press Conference

One of the best things about director Ava DuVernay‘s A Wrinkle In Time is how it makes themes about representation and identity easily digestible for a younger audience.

Based on author Madeleine L’Engle‘s novel of the same name, the film uses those timeless issues that affect children and turns it into a sci-fi fantasy adventure with an all-star cast led by the up and coming Storm Reid.

We, along with our fellow journalists, were recently invited to the film’s press junket where the cast and director talked about those themes and how they hope it reaches audiences of all ages.

‘A Wrinkle In Time’ Trailer: Ava DuVernay’s Upcoming Film Looks “Beautiful”

A Wrinkle In Time

Ava DuVernay‘s adaptation of A Wrinkle In Time is shaping up to be one of the most exciting films of the year. And it is also looking to be one of the most inspirational. The film marks the first time that an African American woman has directed a $100 million-plus budgeted film. And that is just the tip. There is also a well-rounded multi-ethnic cast that is led by a young woman of color. So it is a very timely film that speaks to the current social climate.

Based on all the trailers we have seen so far, A Wrinkle in Time will be a sensory thrill. It looks vibrant and exciting. The sounds are powerful. And the world DuVernay has created looks so real. Now, with the film just a month away from release, Disney has dropped another trailer. Check it out below.
