The image, from left to right, introduces us to Chris Miller (co-director), Woody Harrelson, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, Chewbaca (Joonas Suotamo), Phil Lord (co-director) and Donald Glover.

Tue, 02/21/2017 - 06:40

Last September, we were excited to hear that Disney had brought Jon Favreau (The Jungle Book) on board to direct a new live-action reimagining of The Lion King. The original 1994 animated movie has become a beloved classic, following young Simba (voiced as an adult by Matthew Broderick) as he comes of age under the shadow of his benevolent father Mufasa (James Earl Jones) and his wicked uncle Scar (Jeremy Irons). Now Favreau has announced the first two actors cast and they are significant....

Exclusive Clip: Kill or Be Killed in 'The Belko Experiment'

Mon, 02/20/2017 - 09:00

Movies in which people are forced to torture or even murder others come along every now and then: think the Hunger Games or Saw franchises. The Belko Experiment, in theaters March 17, takes the concept to new heights -- literally. In it, a mysterious voice comes over the loudspeaker in a high-rise building in Colombia to inform the employees that 30 of them must be killed in eight hours... by any means necessary.  The movie stars some familiar faces: John C. McGinley,...

Female-Directors Buzz: Acclaimed Indie Director to Helm 'A Tale of Love and Fallout' Adaptation

Fri, 02/17/2017 - 06:30

The filmmaking industry still has a long way to go when it comes to greater opportunities for women and people of color. We're always happy, though, to see progress being made, bit by bit. Last year, Ava DuVernay was hired to direct Disney's A Wrinkle in Time, becoming the first woman to helm a movie with a production budgeted at more than $100 million. Earlier this week, Niki Caro became the second woman to receive that responsibility when she was named director of Disney's...

Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts on Why 'Kong: Skull Island' Is Unlike Any Other 'King Kong' Movie

Fri, 02/17/2017 - 06:00

“One of my favorite reviews that someone wrote on a testing scorecard said that it was like if Jurassic Park had a baby with Aliens, and that baby was adopted by Planes, Trains & Automobiles. That’s such an insane fusion of things, but in a weird way I think it very much represents what this movie is.” - Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts   On March 10, Kong: Skull Island roars to life on the big screen, presenting a brand new take on the...

'The Raid' Remake Is Back on, This Time with Joe Carnahan and Frank Grillo

Thu, 02/16/2017 - 06:07

The Raid is one of the best action movies of the last few years. It's a surprisingly complex story of police, drug lords, corruption, and an officer just trying to keep his head down and do right by his community. It also happens to feature some of the best action scenes you're ever going to see in a movie. It's utterly fantastic. There's only one catch with The Raid, though. It's not in English; it's Indonesian. That means it's a ripe candidate for a redo in...

Mel Gibson Among Directors Touted for 'Suicide Squad 2'

Thu, 02/16/2017 - 05:58

Mel Gibson is back! Whether that delights you or not, the evidence is clear. Over the past few months, we've seen him give a very appealing lead performance in the razor-edged action movie Blood Father, which gained a lot of fans even with a limited release. Then came Hacksaw Ridge (above), a war movie that, yes, featured plenty of tough-minded and explicit violence, but proved to be more about the strong religious beliefs of its lead character, played by Andrew Garfield, than anything else....

Hugh Jackman Says He Won't Bring Wolverine Back to Face Deadpool: "I'm Out"

Thu, 02/16/2017 - 05:00

Logan is being billed as Hugh Jackman's final time in the role of the X-Men's most tortured soul, Wolverine. Jackman has played the character in eight movies (including cameos), with Logan being his ninth go at the clawed comic-book antihero over a span of 17 years. That's commitment, and one of the longest runs ever for playing the same role in that many movies. But has an emerging campaign to bring his Wolverine together with Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool swaying Jackman in any...
