Jude Law Cast as Male Lead in 'Captain Marvel'

17 hours ago

Marvel begins production on its first solo female superhero movie next March, and we can expect more and more casting announcements as the start date approaches. Here's one now: Variety has just learned, without confirmation yet from the studio, that Jude Law is in negotiations to play the male lead in Captain Marvel opposite Brie Larson's titular character.  Law's role is said to be that of Dr. Walter Lawson, aka Mar-Vell, described as a mentor to Larson's Air Force pilot-turned-hero, Carol Danvers. He was also once known as Captain Marvel in the comics, where he originated as an alien of the Kree race (you may recall the main villain in Guardians of the Galaxy, Ronan the Accuser, is also Kree) who came to Earth to spy on humans before becoming their...

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Primer: Where Was Luke Skywalker Between Episodes VI-vii?

19 hours ago

In 1983, audiences across the world witnessed the finale of the original Star Wars Trilogy, seeing Jedi-in-training Luke Skywalker confront his father and the Galactic Emperor in the midst of a massive battle for the future of the galaxy. With his own soul on the line, Luke embraced his destiny and became a Jedi Knight, rejecting Emperor Palpatine's attempts to turn him to the Dark Side of the Force, while also re-awakening the dormant Anakin Skywalker within Darth Vader. Anakin destroyed his former master, and in his final moments, returned to the Light Side long enough to see his son become the new light of the Jedi in an uncertain time. In the 34 years since the release of Return of the Jedi, the Star Wars universe has grown exponentially. We absorbed...

The Last Horror Blog: 'Get Out' Sequel, 'A Quiet Place,' 'Devils Under Dust' and More

21 hours ago

Jordan Peele open to the idea of a Get Out sequel – I’ve no doubt (goofy Golden Globes categorization aside…) that Jordan Peele’s Get Out is going to wind up on a whole lot of “Best Horror of 2107” lists at the end of next month. There’s no denying that Peele has created one of the smarter horror films to emerge in recent memory (no small feat, considering that we’ve had quite a few intelligent genre offerings over the past few years), but would the director actually return to the world he created for a sequel? Turns out, he would. Peele recently spoke with Deadline and had this to say about a potential follow-up to breakout feature. “I haven’t decided anything yet and I am allowing the creative part to bubble up...

Movie News: How 'Aquaman' Will Be Different Than 'Justice League'; Who Wants to Star in DC's 'Nightwing'?

22 November 2017 11:00 AM, PST

Aquaman: In response to an article about the possible implications of an underwater sequence in Justice League, which featured Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Mera (Amber Heard) talking in an air bubble, director James Wan teased: "Fret not, no 'air bubbles for dialogue' in my underwater world."

New 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' TV Spots Focus on Hope and Heroes

21 November 2017 7:00 PM, PST

The last full trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi made the movie seem pretty daunting, and a recent TV spot that is focused on "darkness rising" hasn't helped quell fans' fears for the good guys. But new spots have recently dropped offering a new hope for the heroes and the lighter side of the Force.  One of these spots is actually entited "Heroes" and focuses on the younger good guys Finn (John Boyega), Poe (Oscar Isaac) and Rey (Daisey Ridley) and their presumed triumphs in battle against Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) and the First Order, with Tie Fighters going down and positive speeches promising victory.   "Where's Rey," Finn asks in that spot, showing how these heroes' priorities are with each...

How 'Justice League' Sets Up the Future of DC on Film

21 November 2017 1:00 PM, PST

Warning: Spoilers for Justice League will follow immediately. Although yesterday's headlines were focused more on the struggling box office performance of Warner Bros. Pictures' ambitious DC Comics-based superhero team-up film, we certainly found that there was quite a lot to like in Justice League. While the actual future of DC Comics on film will undoubtedly be debated within board rooms on the WB lot in Burbank for a while to come, that doesn't mean that the film as it was released doesn't have some pretty notable happenings that could reverberate through the future of the DC movie slate. In addition to both mid- and post-credits scenes, some present expository work midway through the film definitely laid the groundwork for a solo adventure that...

Plot Revealed for Quentin Tarantino's Next Movie: Here's What We Know So Far

20 November 2017 7:00 PM, PST

Charles Manson, one of the most notorious figures of the 20th century, died yesterday in a California state prison. The cult leader has been subject of many TV and movie projects in the past, and he'll be part of at least one more in the future. Quentin Tarantino's next feature was once thought to be entirely about Manson, though new plot details reveal he's merely a minor piece of a larger story.  Here's everything we know so far: What is the plot of Tarantino's next feature? Vanity Fair got the scoop on the basic plot synopsis, which involves a male TV star, hot off a hit series, and his stunt double sidekick as they both try to transition to the movies. Set in the summer of 1969, the story unfolds at the same time as the Manson-ordered murders of...
