James Gunn Says Mantis And Nebula Have 'Pretty Huge' Roles In Guardians Of The Galaxy 3

Who needs Hamlet when you've got Nebula? Karen Gillan's blue cyborg space assassin may have 12 soliloquies in "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3," if James Gunn's official verified Twitter account is to be believed.That's likely a joke on Gunn's part. However, he recently replied to a retweeted ComicBook.com article that said a reading of his "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3" script left Gillan and her co-star, Pom Klementieff — who plays Mantis — in "floods of tears." He said, "I hope it's not beca...

How Star Wars: Visions Embraces And Reinvents The Franchise's Long-Held Values [Interview]

When "Star Wars: A New Hope" released in 1977, audiences were blown away by the original adventure tale. And it is original, in as much as any story idea is. But the American space opera has always had the cinema of Akira Kurosawa coursing through its veins. In crafting his epic, George Lucas leaned heavily on Kurosawa's 1958 samurai picture "The Hidden Fortress," down to mimicked lensing and particular shots. Now, decades, several sequels, three prequels, and a ton of spinoffs and merchandising...

12 Shows Like Ted Lasso You'll Definitely Want To Watch

"Believe." That's the core tenet of "Ted Lasso," the instruction that informs both its titular character and the team who writes him into existence. If Ted Lasso believes, so too will his audience. Maybe they'll believe in themselves. Maybe they'll come to believe that football is life (and also death), or that deep grief can be lived with. Belief is what made "Ted Lasso" a word-of-mouth hit, and belief is, ironically, why the discourse turned against it -- because, if you haven't heard, despite...

Marvel Fans Picked The Best MCU Phase 2 Villain, And It's Hard To Argue Against Them

The worst villain of Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was previously picked by fans in a poll that ended up being completely wrong. There's just no way that Yellowjacket from "Ant-Man" is a worse villain than Malekith from "Thor: The Dark World." However, when Marvel fans were asked to pick the best villain from that same era of Marvel Studios movies, they actually came up with the correct answer.  And The Survey Says... For this Marvel poll, we had 624 participants in the United State...

Star Wars: Visions Review: A Refreshing And Gorgeous Spin On A Galaxy Far, Far Away

Westerners love to take on Asian properties and regurgitate them (which often means dumbing down) for American crowds, but "Star Wars: Visions" innately understands the Kurosawa influence on George Lucas and the stories he tells. So this collection of anime shorts set in the "Star Wars" universe is more of a return to roots than a regurgitation. Exclusive to Disney+, "Star Wars: Visions" unrolls over nine standalone episodes.

Dear Evan Hansen Director Stephen Chbosky On Finding 'The Reality' In A Musical [Interview]

But on the screenwriting side of things, Chbosky has a surprising affinity for musicals. The filmmaker penned the feature adaptation of Broadway smash "Rent...

The Best Animated Film Of Each Decade

Animation has been a tried-and-true staple at theaters since the birth of cinema itself, and while the format has had its creative ups and downs, there are great animated films to be found through each decade of film history. While Disney has something of a monopoly on the entire field of children's animation, especially before some legitimate competitors began to surface in the '80s, there's a wealth of animated films that go far beyond your traditional Disney fare. From the silent era, during ...

Star Wars Editor Marcia Lucas Was Furious With Sequel Series, Cried Over The Prequels

When you watch enough movies, the dirty little secret that nobody ever really wants to acknowledge starts to emerge. The vast majority of films aren't terrible or masterpieces -- they're merely okay. Some good stuff, some bad, all combining to make an unspectacular 2.5 out of 5 star film. That's just the way it is! But when it comes to some diehard fans of blockbuster franchises like, say, "Star Wars," suddenly all of that conventional wisdom goes out the window and becomes replaced with charged...

The Biggest Surprises And Shocks From The 2021 Emmy Awards

Last night's ceremony was the least-surprising Emmy Awards in quite some time. Of course "The Crown" swept the drama awards. Of course "Ted Lasso" (mostly) swept the comedy awards. Of course popular, hip genre shows like "The Mandalorian" and "WandaVision" didn't make a dent in the major categories. The running joke among TV fans online was that voters clearly only watched a handful of (the whitest) shows before voting.But that doesn't mean there weren't surprises. And shocks.
