Kenneth Branagh to Return in Murder on the Orient Express Sequel

3 hours ago

20th Century Fox is moving forward with a sequel to the Agatha Christie adaptation Murder on the Orient Express, entitled Death On the Nile. The studio is bringing back Murder on the Orient Express writer Michael Green to pen the script. While there is no deal in place as of yet for filmmaker/star Kenneth Branagh, he is expected to return to the director's chair, while also coming back to star as detective Hercule Poirot. Whether Poirot's epic mustache also returns remains to be seen, but that seems likely as well.

Death on the Nile was first published in 1937, three years after Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express was published. The story finds Hercule Poirot on vacation in Cairo, Egypt, where he becomes entangled in a deadly love triangle.

Justice League may not have been the movie many critics wanted it to be, but we did get more of Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, and that's a good thing in the eyes of most fans.

Did Marilyn Manson Die? Millennials Mistake Musician for Charles Manson

4 hours ago

Marilyn Manson has received rest in peace tributes after people confused him for late cult leader Charles Manson, who passed away on Sunday at the age of 83. It's been hours and people are still taking to Twitter to write heartfelt tributes to Marilyn Manson, even after Manson tweeted out a YouTube video featuring the shock rocker covering Charles Manson's song "Sick City." Many are trying to desperately school the millennials who don't know their history of cult murderers and 90's rockers and to spread the word that Marilyn Manson is still alive and playing a show in Austria today.

After being sentenced to death in 1971, Charles Manson's conviction was eventually commuted into a life sentence, with Manson remaining imprisoned in California until his death. Before the murders, Ohio-born Manson also spent time as a singer/songwriter in the Los Angeles music scene during the late 60s. Several recordings »

Jason Momoa Responds to Justice League Critics

4 hours ago

Justice League is in theaters and, while many fans are enjoying it, it's another critical failure for the Dceu. Not only that, but the movie appears to be suffering as a result, as the DC movie brought in just $94 million over the weekend, which is far below expectations. So, how does Jason Momoa, who stars as Aquaman in the movie, feel about all of this negativity? He's staying away from it entirely. Here's what he had to say in a recent interview.

"I try to stay the f- away from what people say. "Some of my friends said, 'Justice League isn't doing well' and it kind of bummed me out. But I didn't want to look it up. I don't want to look up the bad and the negativity. I don't think that's useful; it doesn't help."

While seeking out the negativity may not help Jason Momoa, it's something that »

Phantom Thread Preview Teases Daniel Day Lewis' Final Moments on Screen

5 hours ago

Focus Features has released a new trailer for Phantom Thread, which reveals that there will be sneak peek screenings in New York and Los Angeles between November 24 and November 30. The preview, released earlier today, has already proven to be quite popular, since all of the screenings in both cities are sold out. Given the immense demand for what will be iconic actor Daniel Day-Lewis' final film, it wouldn't be surprising if even more sneak peeks are added between now and the December 25 release date.

Set in the glamour of 1950's post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock.

Ghostbusters Reboot Director Knows Why His Movie Failed Miserably

5 hours ago

Paul Feig's Ghostbusters reboot, later retitled Answer the Call, was supposed to launch a new franchise and it had the backing of the original cast, which was a big selling point. But many were skeptical from the start with the idea of an all- female cast driving around in the Ecto-1 and kicking some ghost ass. A lot has been said about the movie since its release, but now Paul Feig is speaking up and stating that he now knows the reason why the movie has been deemed a box office failure.

Paul Feig recently sat down with Vulture to discuss his version of Ghostbusters and what exactly he feels went wrong and kept the movie from becoming a box office sensation. In the end, the director believes that a movie that was supposed to be fun and a celebration of the original franchise became too politicized, which Feig regrets to this day. »

X-Men Spin-off Gambit Gets Lizzy Caplan as the Female Lead

5 hours ago

Channing Tatum's long-gestating Gambit movie continues to pick up steam. After seemingly being pulled from Fox's plans for the future of the X-Men universe entirely, Gambit has been putting the pieces of the puzzle in place and now it's just taken another major step forward. According to a new report, Masters of Sex star Lizzy Caplan has been tapped to play the female lead in Gambit, alongside Channing Tatum, who pretty much willed this movie into existence a few years ago.

Lizzy Caplan hasn't signed on the dotted line yet, but she's in talks to star in Gambit and, unless something crazy happens, it sounds like she's got the part. As for who she's playing? No official details on her role have yet been revealed, but X-Men fans will note Remy LeBeau's long-standing relationship with Rogue. Anna Paquin has portrayed the character up to this point in the X-Men movies, »

Ultimate Proof That Apollo Moon Landing Was Fake?

6 hours ago

Did Stanley Kubrick direct the moon landings that everyone saw on TV? That has long been one of the theories revolving around our trips to the moon. Conspiracy theorists are now at it again, claiming that the 1969 moon landing never happened. This is certainly nothing new, but a fresh piece of evidence allegedly proves that the moon landings never took place. An eagle-eyed amateur stargazer is convinced that he has seen something strange in a photograph which suggests the sixth and final moon landing, at least, never happened. A figure on the lunar surface is allegedly seen not wearing a spacesuit, which we all know would be impossible in space. For scientists, engineers, and millions of people across the world, the moon landings are the human race's greatest achievement, but conspiracy theorists continue to maintain that they are the subject of the biggest government cover up of all time.

Fired Han Solo Directs Break Silence on Losing Star Wars Movie

10 hours ago

Chris Miller and Phil Lord have broken their silence about leaving Solo: A Star Wars Story and how it made them better filmmakers. While it didn't come as a complete shock over the summer when Disney and Lucasfilm decided to part ways with Lord and Miller, it was still a surprise since so much of the movie had reportedly already been completed by the duo. Disney sited creative differences for the split, which seems to have been the case, and now the directors are sharing their side of the story for the first time.

At a panel for their MTV animated series Clone High at the Vulture Festival in L.A. over the weekend, Chris Miller and Phil Lord discussed their experience of being fired from the young Han Solo movie.

When talking about all of the sexual misconduct allegations in the entertainment community, the singer talked about how some people are just awkward when it comes to relationships and said that anybody who says, "I like you," can be accused of harassment these days.

11 hours ago

As we get closer to the December 15 release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a TV spot has surfaced hinting that Rey (Daisy Ridley) will turn to the Dark Side of the Force. There have been some not-so-subtle hints laid forth that Rey will give into evil, but this new footage shows her mentor Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) trying to stop it. Whether or not he can do so remains to be seen, and we won't find out for sure until December 15.

The second Star Wars trailer ended with Rey was telling someone, presumably Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) that she needs help finding her place, with Kylo Ren reaching out his hand to help bring her to the dark side. That trailer also featured a scene where she was suspended in mid-air while screaming in pain at the hands of Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis). There was also a Last »
