Road to Endgame: ‘Captain Marvel’ is a Return to One of Marvel’s Messiest Problems

(Welcome to  Road to Endgame , where we revisit the first 22 movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and ask, “How did we get here?” In Part 2 of Captain Marvel : forgotten stakes, and the narrative fallout of blatant propaganda.) [Read part one of our Captain Marvel piece here.] Marvel movies tend to be littered with in-jokes. Cameos, sequel setups and obscure comic trivia reward the loyalty of certain audiences, and while Captain Marvel speaks this not-so-secret dialect (in addition t...

HBO to Air ‘McMillions’, a Documentary Series About the McDonald’s Monopoly Fraud

When The Daily Beast published an article last summer titled “How an Ex-Cop Rigged McDonald’s Monopoly Game and Stole Millions,” it captured Hollywood’s attention in a big way. We later learned that was by design: the article, which details extreme (and wildly entertaining) levels of fraud surrounding the nationwide Monopoly game that McDonald’s previously participated in, was written with the express purpose of being adapted into a movie. A film adaptation is still on the table, but now a docu...

Lionsgate’s ‘Chaos Walking’, Starring Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley, is “Unreleasable”, So They’re Spending Millions More on Reshoots

Chaos Walking, the film adaptation of Patrick Ness’s young adult book trilogy, has been in development since 2011.

‘The Raid’ Remake is Still Happening and Joe Carnahan Shares New Plot Details

When the scrappy Indonesian martial arts thriller The Raid: Redemption became an instant action classic in 2011, it seemed inevitable that a Hollywood remake would be on its way. Lo and behold, Frank Grillo soon signed on to star in The Raid remake, and director Joe Carnahan signed on three years later.
