Brie Larson’s first big solo outing in the MCU is undergoing a little shake-up behind the scenes. Marvel has reportedly hired a new screenwriter for Captain Marvel, the ’90s-set superhero film that will introduce audiences to the eponymous hero. And they could do a lot worse than a scribe whose credits include upcoming projects like the Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander, as well as the all-female DC villains team-up Gotham City Sirens.
You’ve probably noticed that The Last Jedi has been taking up quite a bit of internet real estate over the last few days. With the latest chapter in the Star Wars saga hitting theaters in four months, this week’s flood of new photos and plot details is just the tip of the promotional iceberg — and we’re bound to see a steady increase in marketing from now until December, making The Last Jedi impossible to ignore. And yet, Mark Hamill and director Rian Johnson want you to do just that.
Like you, we’re pretty anxious to see our favorites from The Force Awakens back on the big screen this December, but we’re just as excited about all the new faces coming to a galaxy far, far away. That includes Star Wars newcomers like Laura Dern (praise hands emoji), Kelly Marie Tran and, perhaps most intriguingly, Benicio Del Toro — whose role in The Last Jedi has mostly been mysterious until now.
One of the biggest hits at this year’s SXSW Film Festival was also one of the most pleasant surprises: The Disaster Artist, James Franco’s new film based on Greg Sestero’s book of the same name, which recounts the making of 2003’s The Room. In addition to directing, Franco stars in the film as Tommy Wiseau, the eccentric (to say the least) filmmaker behind the so-bad-it-might-be-genius cult favorite. While many have praised The Disaster Artist as a weirdly touching love letter to filmmaking, there’s arguably only one opinion that really matters: That of Wiseau himself.
Easily the most striking thing about the trailers and posters for Thor: Ragnarok is the COLORS. The MCU is taking a very bold turn (in more ways than one), and we probably have the success of the Guardians of the Galaxy films to thank for allowing a great director like Taika Waititi to come in and shake up Thor’s somewhat bland (but occasionally shiny) world. Take, for example, this new international poster, which is, for lack of a better phrase, sick as hell.
Had your fill of Star Wars news yet? No? Good. The floodgates are officially open, and even more photos and details from The Last Jedi have been unleashed. This time, we’re taking the path to the Dark Side with new intel on Supreme Leader Snoke and his “elite” Praetorian Guard — essentially an upgraded, more badass version of the series’ classic Imperial Guard.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Man directs acclaimed indie. Studio hires man to direct giant blockbuster franchise movie. Said movie is…not very good. Seemingly unimpeded by failure, man continues to direct movies, including a sequel to said blockbuster…which is also not very good. In this case, the man in question is Marc Webb, whose Amazing Spider-Man films were — despite fairly successful box office runs — decidedly un-amazing. His idea for the scrapped third film doesn’t sound that much better.
It’s (almost) the most wonderful time of the year…Fantastic Fest 2017 is right around in the corner, and if the first wave of film programming is any indication, this year’s lineup is going to be pretty stellar. The initial roster boasts the usual assortment of intriguing genre fare (like Takashi Miike’s 100th film, if you can believe it) alongside festival favorites and potential awards contenders, including new films from Yorgos Lanthimos, Ruben Ostlund, Martin McDonagh and more — so much more!
On the heels of last week’s Aladdin update comes another exciting bit of casting news for another big Disney remake. This time it’s Jon Favreau’s take on The Lion King, which has enlisted Alfre Woodard as the voice of Sarabi — head lioness, partner to Mufasa, and mother of Simba in the upcoming live-action (ish) version of the studio’s beloved animated classic.
Now this is a thrilling combination of nouns: Amazon Studios has snatched up Lucy and Desi, an upcoming biopic written by Aaron Sorkin and starring Cate Blanchett as TV icon Lucille Ball. A masterful actress playing a masterful comedian in a film scripted by a masterful screenwriter is quite a catch, to say the least — all that’s missing is Desi himself, and given the talent involved so far, you have to imagine it’ll be someone great.
