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…Read More

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.

“Chances are we are not going to make it out of this one…” Warner Bros has debuted the second trailer for 12 Strong, formerly known as Horse Soldiers, about a Special Forces group sent into Afghanistan at the beginning of the war after 9/11.

Chris Hemsworth stars, along with an ensemble cast including Taylor Sheridan, Michael Shannon, Austin Stowell, Michael Peña, Geoff Stults, and Elsa Pataky. This second trailer doesn’t look any better than the first, with more action+explosions galore, patriotism everywhere, and lots and lots of guns. Here’s the second trailer (+ original poster) for Nicolai Fuglsig’s 12 Strong, directly from YouTube: You can also still watch the first official trailer for 12 Strong here, to see even more footage from this. 12 Strong tells the story of the first …

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 …

It could be the name of a seniors-only a capella group, but the chummy, sunny title is misleading. If “Golden Dawn Girls,” which premiered in the main competition at the International Documentary Festival of Amsterdam (IDFA), represents any…

When director Joe Wright, the filmmaker behind “Pride and Prejudice,” “Atonement,” “Hanna” and “Anna Karenina,” finished the movie “Pan,” and it was released into the world, he felt shattered. The expensive, big budget spectacle bombed at the box offic…
