It takes a lot for Academy voters to recognize or even acknowledge a superhero film, but perhaps the highest-grossing film ever directed by a woman could do the trick. With a worldwide box office gross of $781 million (to date) and a 92 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Wonder Woman is a certified hit. Critics and audiences alike have fallen head over heels for Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot’s solo superhero film, but can Warner Bros. get Oscar voters to do the same?
You know what they say: Everything is better with friends. That includes fighting an evil demonic clown who lives in town sewer system and has an affinity for Victorian era garb. Wardrobe preference notwithstanding, Pennywise is still pretty darn terrifying, especially if you’re already scared of clowns — in which case, you might want to avoid the new trailer for IT.
Come for Jon Hamm’s hot hologram (or “Holo-Hamm,” if you will), stay for a moving sci-fi drama about an elderly woman who employs said hologram to hold on to her memories. As touted in the first trailer for Marjorie Prime, the new film from director Michael Almereyda has been likened to Black Mirror and Spike Jonze’s Her — which is to say that, despite the joyful implications of a holographic Jon Hamm, Marjorie Prime is a rather somber experience.
Nicholas Hoult might be adding another iconic author to his filmography. The star of the upcoming J.D. Salinger biopic Rebel in the Rye is reportedly the frontrunner for the title role in Tolkien, which will explore the life of the man whose beloved novels introduced readers all over the world to Gandalf, Hobbits and Gollum — and inspired countless works of fantasy fiction for decades to come.
An animated film featuring anthropomorphic emojis like Poop and High Five is probably not the best, um, vessel for a parody of a dystopian series in which fertile women are forced to procreate with wealthy men. But that’s exactly what happened late yesterday afternoon, when the marketing for The Emoji Movie took a decidedly dark and exceedingly ill-advised turn. In a tweet that has since been deleted, the film’s official account shared a promotional photo parodying The Handmaid’s Tale, Hulu’s acclaimed series adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s classic novel. Unsurprisingly (and delightfully), the public response was swift and savage.
Rumors began circulating earlier this year about “extensive” reshoots on Justice League, which are now being overseen by Joss Whedon following Zack Snyder’s recent exit. Although reshoots are fairly typical and often factored into the post-production schedule, particularly on big budget blockbusters such as this, the film’s cast downplayed the matter at Comic-Con over the weekend. But a new report doubles down on earlier rumors and reveals just how complicated things have become for Justice League in the final stretch.
Just one day before he was scheduled to appear at Comic-Con, a new report revealed that Ben Affleck’s days as Batman are seemingly numbered, with sources close to the situation suggesting that this fall’s Justice League may very well be the actor’s final appearance in the DCEU. But during today’s Warner Bros. panel in Hall H, Affleck swiftly shot down rumors of his departure, imminent or otherwise, as he reassured the crowd that he’s still very committed to playing the Caped Crusader.
Warner Bros. kicked off the DCEU portion of their Comic-Con panel (which is currently underway) with a sizzle reel featuring the titles of the studio’s upcoming superhero films, including Wonder Woman 2, Suicide Squad 2, Shazam!, Green Lantern Corps., and more. But the most interesting title belonged to The Flash, as WB. has apparently given Ezra Miller’s long-developing solo adventure a new name: Flashpoint.
It looks like Ben Affleck’s Bat-days may be numbered — and more than you might think. Not only is the actor unlikely to appear in The Batman, but a new report reveals that he’s on the verge of exiting the DCEU entirely. The news comes as not much of a shock following Affleck’s departure from the helm of the upcoming solo movie, for which he was replaced by War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves.
Universal’s recent attempt to launch a “Dark Universe” of monster movies with The Mummy didn’t exactly go as planned. The action-horror flick starring Tom Cruise is just the first of several reboots the studio has in development, and though it grossed $390 million worldwide, it earned a fairly disappointing $79 million stateside — hardly enough to merit the creation of an entire franchise, but Universal is determined to move ahead with their plans all the same. Those plans now reportedly include trying to land Channing Tatum for the lead role in a reboot of Van Helsing.
