‘Black Panther’ Star Letitia Wright Books a Trip With ‘Orient Express’ Sequel ‘Death on the Nile’

With Murder on the Orient Express, director and actor Kenneth Branagh loaded the cast with famous faces and impressive actors, all in the name of bringing Agatha Christie’s mystery to life. Branagh clearly wants to repeat this approach with the sequel, Death on the Nile. Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer and Jodie Comer already have parts, and now Black Panther breakout Letitia Wright has climbed aboard the Death on the Nile cast as well. Wright will play one of the suspects Branagh’s Hercule Poirot is i...

Disney Scraps Fox’s ‘Mouse Guard’ Two Weeks Before Production Begins

Disney has laid the trap for the first major film casualty of its acquisition of Fox. Two weeks before it was set to go into production, Mouse Guard, the feature film adaptation based on David Petersen’s beloved comic series, has been scrapped. Directed by The Maze Runner‘s Wes Ball, Mouse Guard was set to star Idris Elba, Andy Serkis, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and Sonoya Mizuno, in a motion-capture animated film that would bring to life Petersen’s vivid Eisner Award-winning illustrations. Howeve...

‘Dark Phoenix’ Trailer: Jean Grey Has the Space Madness

Now that 20th Century Fox has been bought by Disney, the Marvel Comics mutants known as the X-Men are back home at Marvel Studios. But before that, the studio will finish the initial series nearly 20 years later with the final installment of the franchise: Dark Phoenix. The only problem is that it’s retelling a story that we’ve already heard before, and much like the recent reboot of Hellboy, it doesn’t seem to be doing much to improve it in any way. Watch the new Dark Phoenix trailer below. ...

Disney CEO Bob Iger Says Fox Purchase Was All About Building Disney+ Content

Ever since the deal for The Walt Disney Company to buy tons of assets from 21st Century Fox was announced, there has been a fair share of concern about what this means for the future of studio filmmaking. Now that the deal has closed, we’ve already  seen some of the upsetting fallout of that purchase, but it will be years before we see how this changes the box office landscape. However, aside from the worries of cinephiles who think this is one more step in Disney owning the entire world, CEO B...

‘Love, Simon’ TV Series in the Works at Disney+ Following Fox 2000 Demise

Love, Simon is about to tack on a big postscript. The hit 2018 LGBT coming-of-age movie was a rousing success for Fox 2000, the 20th Century Fox sub-label that focused on crowd-pleasing mid-budget films run by Elizabeth Gabler.

‘Dark Phoenix’ TV Spot: It’s a Bad Idea to Threaten Jean Grey

The newest X-Men movie, Dark Phoenix, is going to shake things up by killing off at least one major character – could one of the film’s casualties be Michael Fassbender‘s Magneto? A new Dark Phoenix TV spot shows Sophie Turner‘s Jean Grey, infused with the Phoenix Force, not taking kindly to a threat, and it appears that it could be curtains for Magneto before the final credits roll. Dark Phoenix TV Spot OK, so even if Magneto doesn’t die, it’s definitely going to be “curtains” for him b...

‘Stuber’ Trailer: Dave Bautista Isn’t the Easy Uber Passenger Kumail Nanjiani Was Hoping For

You’ve probably had a couple annoying Uber rides here and there. But it’s probably nothing like the experience Kumail Nanjiani has in the upcoming action comedy Stuber. Stuber follows an Uber driver (Kumail Nanjiani) who inadvertently ends up involved with deadly criminals, shootouts, and a fight for his life. That’s because a cop (Dave Bautista) is using him as transportation to track down a killer. Stuber Trailer Dave Bautista has already shown that he has impressive comedy chops with...

‘Dark Phoenix’ Will Have a Stan Lee Tribute Instead of the Usual Cameo

Stan Lee has made no less than 37 appearances in movies based on Marvel Comics. But since we lost the legendary creator last year, those cameos are sadly coming to an end. Recently we heard that Avengers: Endgame will feature Stan Lee’s final cameo appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it sounds like it’ll be his last Marvel cameo entirely too. Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg has confirmed that there isn’t a Stan Lee cameo in the movie, but there is some kind of tribute to the ma...

Is Vin Diesel in James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’ Sequels? A Confusing Video Suggests…Maybe?

It looks like Vin Diesel just blue himself. Maybe. The Fast and Furious actor may have jumped the gun by showing himself on the set of the Avatar sequels with director James Cameron, where the pair of them coyly suggested that Diesel may be joining the cast of the highly anticipated sci-fi films. Or perhaps Diesel is just showing off that he’s on the Avatar set. Let’s dig in to this and figure it out. On Wednesday, Diesel posted an Instagram video of him and Avatar director James Cameron on ...

‘Free Guy’ Will Reunite ‘Green Lantern’ Buddy Taika Waititi with Ryan Reynolds

If you’re lucky, then you’ve forgotten most of the superhero bomb that was Green Lantern. For the rest of us who are taking up space in our brain with memories of the audaciously awful DC Comics movie, we haven’t forgotten that before he got behind the camera at Marvel Studios with Thor: Ragnarok, New Zealand treasure Taika Waititi was best buddies with Ryan Reynolds as superhero Hal Jordan. Now the two are reuniting for the upcoming video game based action comedy Free Guy. The Hollywood Repo...

Ridley Scott and Sigourney Weaver Give Plenty of Praise ‘Alien’ High School Play That Went Viral

Last weekend, a high school stage production of Alien went viral when images and video of the impressive play by a New Jersey drama club hit the web. The hype was enough to gain the attention of the official Alien Anthology account from 20th Century Fox (which may be in the hands of a Disney employee now), but now the students will be riding a whole new wave of pride thanks to some praise from Alien director Ridley Scott and the film’s star Sigourney Weaver.

Cool Stuff: Mondo Plays Ball with ‘The Sandlot’ Prints & Pins By Matt Ryan Tobin and Dave Perillo

Today is opening day for Major League Baseball! But even if you don’t care about the sport itself, there’s a good chance you still love the 1993 coming of age sports comedy that Mondo is honoring today. The Sandlot is one of those classic kids sports movies that studios don’t really make anymore. Oddly enough, this one doesn’t hail from Disney, though it does come from the studio they just acquired: 20th Century Fox.

Hey, are we ever going to see New Mutants? To quote star Maisie Williams, “Who knows when the fuck that’s gonna come out?” In a recent interview, Williams spoke briefly about the long-delayed X-Men spin-off film, and confirmed something producer Simon Kinberg previously said: the rumored re-shoots on the movie have yet to happen.

Rupert Wyatt Compares His Abandoned ‘Gambit’ Movie to ‘The Godfather’

So often with superhero movies, it becomes a series of “what if’s?” What if this actor had signed on the play Superman? What if this movie had never bombed? But in the case of Gambit, the long-gestating comic book movie is one big case of “what if?” The film has had a veritable revolving door of directors, including Rise of the Planet of the Apes filmmaker Rupert Wyatt, who first signed on to helm Gambit in 2015. But Wyatt’s ambitious vision for the film was abandoned when the director left the...
