Jared Leto Joins the Already-Stacked Cast of 'Blade Runner 2'

Fri, 08/19/2016 - 05:10

There aren't very many major characters in the first Blade Runner. You've got Harrison Ford as the Replicant hunter, Deckard, and then a small handful of people, most of whom don't survive the movie very long. As massive as Ridley Scott's movie is in its scope, it's actually a rather small story. If the cast list for Blade Runner 2 is any indication, however, things are definitely going to be bigger this time around.  Jared Leto is the latest to join, which brings us...

More recently, director Jon Watts (Cop Car, Clown) identified the roles five young actors would be playing in the movie. According to Watts, Zendadya had been cast...

A 'Clue' Remake Will Have the Murder Mystery Span the Globe

Thu, 08/18/2016 - 06:31

There's always an exception to a general rule. In the case of "you can't make a great movie out of a board game," the exception is obviously 1985's Clue. Director Jonathan Lynn found a fantastically entertaining way to turn the whodunit murder-mystery guessing game into a movie, and while it didn't become a massive box office hit, good luck finding anyone born in the '80s or early '90s who had cable TV and isn't a big fan. Naturally, as is the case with...

Superhero Buzz: Natalie Portman, on Her Marvel Future

Thu, 08/18/2016 - 06:25

When Thor was released back in 2011, Natalie Portman was arguably the second best known cast member, after Anthony Hopkins. She was originally signed to play Jane Foster in 2009, but due to delays with the production, she made several other movies in the interim, including Black Swan, which earned her an Academy Award. That rose her profile considerably and her bright performance as astrophysicist Jane Foster certainly made Thor much more than a movie about a superhero who falls in love with...

Exclusive: What's Behind the Blind Justice of 'Hell or High Water'

Wed, 08/17/2016 - 09:00

In the drama Hell or High Water, difficult choices are made and actions taken that blur multiple shades of gray -- but are there really any bad guys in this story? Chris Pine plays divorced dad Toby Howard, struggling to save his family farm after his mother dies. He teams with his estranged ex-con brother, Tanner (Ben Foster), to embark on a bank-robbing spree they hope will help pay the mortgage. Jeff Bridges, meanwhile, is the gruff and almost sympathetic man of the law who's hot on their...

'The Little Mermaid' Remake Lands 'Hamilton' Breakout Lin-Manuel Miranda

Wed, 08/17/2016 - 06:26

Disney's live-action remakes of its classic animated movies are the closest thing you can get to a sure bet in Hollywood these days. The studio's track record so far has just been too strong, both with critics and audiences. But what's particularly cool about Disney's method here is that it's not phoning it in with recognizable brands. Movies like The Jungle Book take the original source material and then find a way to make an audience in 2016 feel like they are truly...

A ‘War Dogs’ Primer: The Real Story Behind the Movie

Tue, 08/16/2016 - 14:38

War Dogs is based on one of those true stories that no one would actually believe if it were written as fiction.

In this exclusive clip, fellow FBI agent Angela Zamparo (Toni Collette) works on convincing the introverted Foster that he's the right man for the job thanks to his excellent people skills rather than a quick trigger finger.

The Alamo Drafthouse Will Celebrate Tim Burton All Month Long with "SeptemBURTON"

Tue, 08/16/2016 - 07:00

Everybody knows a Tim Burton movie the second they see one. That's simply not something you can say about a lot of Hollywood directors, particularly those working at big-budget levels, and yet Burton's career has remained idiosyncratic for decades. His new movie, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, hits theaters on September 30, which was all the excuse the movie-theater chain Alamo Drafthouse needed to create SeptemBURTON, a month-long celebration of the artist.
