Wed, 11/16/2016 - 06:13

Unlike Ghostbusters, the all-female version of Ocean's Eleven will be directly connected to its predecessors. Like this year's Ghostbusters reboot, though, the O11 spin-off Ocean's Eight will feature cameos from the original movie's stars. Unlike Ghostbusters, those stars will presumably be reprising their same roles. George Clooney is expected to make at least a brief appearance as Danny Ocean, whose sister, played by Sandra...

Alden Ehrenreich Says We'll See a Different Side of Han Solo, Plus: Is He Interested in 'Indiana Jones,' Too?

Tue, 11/15/2016 - 07:40

Few actors have successfully slipped into the shoes of a beloved character to deliver a new, typically younger version of said character to much acclaim. Perhaps the greatest to ever do it was Robert De Niro, who masterfully played a younger version of up-and-coming mob boss Vito Corleone in The Godfather Part II, two years after Marlon Brando brought us an older version of Corleone that would eventually go on to be one of the most recognizable movie characters in cinema history. Both men...

Tue, 11/15/2016 - 07:35

Jurassic World made close to $2 billion, which means the sequel probably shouldn't divert too much from its formula. But if there's anything fans might love to see more of in subsequent installments it's more characters from the original movie, Jurassic Park. That sort of direct tie-in casting hasn't been announced yet, if it ever will be, but the director of Jurassic World 2 -- aka Jurassic Park 5 -- is hinting that we'll see something linking...

Deadpool/Guardians of the Galaxy 2: Paul Wernick, who cowrote the script for Deadpool with Rhett Reese, says their desire to give X-Men character Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) different powers than in the Marvel comics required approval by Marvel. In exchange, the Fox studio swapped Ego the Living Planet, a character for which they owned screen rights, with Marvel so that the character could be played by Kurt Russell in Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

The Jake Gyllenhaal Intensity Scale, From 'Bubble Boy' to 'Nightcrawler'

Mon, 11/14/2016 - 09:58

There are a lot of actors who get famous for playing intense roles filled with screaming matches and pounding chests. But few of them can hold a candle to Jake Gyllenhaal, an underappreciated master of intensity. He's got the perfect combination of boy-next-door innocence, charisma and mystery to do something special with pretty much any role. Lately, however, it seems Gyllenhaal has become Hollywood's go-to actor for characters who are more than a little bit unhinged. His...

Whether it's with the FBI embedded in the Middle East (The Kingdom), a small Texas football town (Friday Night Lights), service members real (Lone Survivor) and fictional (Battleship), or civilian engineers facing a disaster (Deepwater Horizon), his movies proudly wave the American flag. It's only natural that his next movie is called Patriots Day. Cowritten by Berg, Patriots Day is about the 2013 Boston Marathon...
