Mads Mikkelsen Discusses His Approach to Being the New Grindelwald in ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’

Mads Mikkelsen is Johnny Depp as the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald in the upcoming third film in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them franchise. With the exception of the die hard Johnny Depp supporters and have taken to the web to demand that his ex-wife Amber Heard be removed from Aquaman 2 as well, most fans are simply wondering what Mikkelsen will do with the villain role in the still-untitled Fantastic Beasts 3. And now, the Rogue One and Hannibal star has talked about it.  s...

Here’s What George Lucas Originally Pitched for the Backstory of Anakin Skywalker

Back in July 1981, few people were privy to the idea that was starting to form in George Lucas‘ mind: an origin story for the iconic Star Wars villain Darth Vader. But at least three people learned the details at a story conference for Return of the Jedi, in which the Star Wars maestro revealed to Richard Marquand, Howard Kazanjian, and Lawrence Kasdan his vision of Anakin Skywalker’s origins. Lucas’ pitch for Anakin Skywalker’s original backstory, which is revealed in the new book The Star War...

The New ‘Scream’ Cast Was Given Fake Scripts to Keep the Ending a Secret

It’s par for the course for any twisty horror movie to hide the true ending from cast members to keep secrets from leaking out to the public. And the new Scream might have a fair few twists, judging by the lengths the production went to keep the film’s ending a secret from its cast. Producer William Sherak revealed that several members of the upcoming fifth installment in the Scream franchise still don’t know the identity of the killer in their movie, due to the multiple fake scripts that were ...

‘The Art of The Mandalorian’ Digs into the First Live-Action ‘Star Wars’ Series With Stunning Illustrations

The Mandalorian made Star Wars history as the first live-action TV series. Now you can find out how the project came together at Lucasfilm as one of the first original programs on Disney+ thanks to The Art of The Mandalorian. The book not only features ample amounts of concept art that show off the developmental evolution of the characters, settings, weapons, aliens, and more from the first season of The Mandalorian, but it also digs into the inception of the series and behind-the-scenes detail...

‘The Croods 2’ Earns the Biggest Box Office Opening Since the Pandemic, But It’s Nothing to Brag About

Considering how many people decided it was okay to fly across the country for Thanksgiving in the middle of a pandemic, it should come as no surprise that some people were also willing to risk their lives to see what an animated caveman family has been up to after seven years. The Croods 2: A New Age opened in theaters for the holiday weekend, and while it had no problem taking the top spot at the box office and surpassing Tenet for the biggest box office opening since the coronavirus pandemic ...

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Will Be the First Title to Stream in 4K on HBO Max

HBO Max has been missing several key features since it launched earlier this year, but chief among them has been the ability to showcase titles in 4K. Thankfully, that’s about to change – just in time for the streaming platform’s highest-profile release yet. Today, director Patty Jenkins revealed on Twitter that her highly anticipated superhero sequel Wonder Woman 1984 will be the first title on HBO Max that will be available to stream in 4K Ultra HD, HDR 10, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Atmos.

‘The Godfather, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone’ Review: Francis Ford Coppola Offers a ‘Godfather III’ Re-Cut You Can’t Refuse

When it comes to Francis Ford Coppola‘s Godfather trilogy, everyone seems to be in agreement: the first two movies are full-blown masterpieces, and the less said about the third film the better. We shouldn’t cry too hard for The Godfather Part III – despite its modern-day reputation of being a dud, it was actually well-received at the box office and even netted itself seven Academy Award nominations (including Best Picture!). But over the years, Coppola’s swan song for the Corleone family has b...

Baby Yoda’s Name Was Decided During ‘The Mandalorian’ Season 1, and Ahsoka Tano Was There When George Lucas Held Him

One of the biggest revelations to come out of last weekend’s episode of The Mandalorian was the real name of Baby Yoda. His name is Grogu, and executive producer Jon Favreau has known that since the first season, but it was fellow executive producer Dave Filoni who figured out how to finally reveal it with the debut of Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano. Speaking of which, do you remember back when everyone was freaking out about Jon Favreau snapping a photo of Star Wars creator George Lucas holding...

‘The Godfather Part III’ Recut is a “Dream Come True” According to Diane Keaton

The Godfather and The Godfather Part II are often hailed as two of the best American movies ever made, but the same can’t be said for The Godfather Part III. The sequel actually received fairly good reviews when it opened in 1990. It also did well at the box office and scored seven Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture. But over the years, Godfather Part III has become something of a punchline, with many zeroing in on the clumsy, strained performance of Sofia Coppola, playing daught...

‘Willow’ Sequel Series Eyes Actresses For Three Leading Roles

Willow, the Disney+ series set years after the events of the 1988 fantasy movie, is currently negotiating with three actresses to play three primary roles in the upcoming show. Ellie Bamber (Nocturnal Animals), Cailee Spaeny (Pacific Rim: Uprising), and Erin Kellyman (Solo: A Star Wars Story) are all in talks to play the female leads, and you can read more about their characters below.

Noah Hawley Says We Shouldn’t Expect His ‘Star Trek’ Movie or ‘Alien’ TV Series Anytime Soon (Or Maybe Ever)

At one point, it seemed very likely that Fargo and Legion creator Noah Hawley would be involved with both an Alien TV series and Star Trek 4. But these days, both projects are looking less and less likely. In a new interview, Hawley confirms that there’s next to no movement on either property. As Hawley tells it, he hasn’t really been involved with anything regarding Alien for a few years, and while Star Trek 4 came “very close to production,” things ultimately fizzled out. Alien TV Series...

‘The Mandalorian’ May Take Place Before the Final Scene of ‘Star Wars Rebels’ – Here’s What That Means

Last weekend’s episode of The Mandalorian saw the debut of Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano in the live-action Star Wars universe after becoming a fan favorite character from The Clone Wars. Ahsoka also had a hand in the plot of Star Wars Rebels as a Rebel informant under the codename “Fulcrum,” which resulted in an eventual face-off with her old master: Darth Vader. With Ahsoka Tano coming into the live-action Star Wars universe, fans have been wondering what that means for her past, including th...

‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2 May Already Be Done with One of the New Characters

The Mandalorian season 2 has brought quite an assembly of characters into the story of the bounty hunter Din Djarin and Baby Yoda (who now has an actual name: Grogu). Just this past weekend, The Clone Wars favorite Ahsoka Tano made an appearance played by Rosario Dawson. Earlier this season, Katee Sackhoff brought her animated character Bo-Katan to life in live-action as well, and she brought two other Mandalorian warriors with her. However, that doesn’t mean all of these characters will contin...

‘The Mandalorian’ Gives Rosario Dawson Her Own Poster As Ahsoka Tano

Last weekend, The Mandalorian blew fans away by bringing The Clone Wars character Ahsoka Tano into the live-action Star Wars universe. Rosario Dawson brought the character to life in the episode appropriately entitled “The Jedi,” wielding two lightsabers and bringing us one of the biggest revelations of the series so far. That means she’s worthy of getting her own character poster, which you can check out below. The Mandalorian Ahsoka Tano Poster In the poster, Ahsoka Tano stands with her ...

‘The New Mutants’ Honest Trailer: The Fourth Best Superhero Movie of 1995

Fans have been waiting to see The New Mutants since 2018, and as we’ve all heard in the same joke over and over again, they might as well be called The Old Mutants. But that’s the quality of joke that The New Mutants is worthy of since it’s a totally lifeless limp to the end of the finish line for the X-Men franchise. In fact, as The New Mutants Honest Trailer so succinctly puts it, you’ll wish the movie was called The Suicide Squad. The New Mutants Honest Trailer Barely any superpowers ...

‘Godzilla vs Kong’ Likely to Get a Streaming Release, Probably at HBO Max

Following the recent decision by Warner Bros. Pictures to release Wonder Woman 1984 on HBO Max simultaneously with a theatrical release on Christmas Day, the floodgates are open for more studio blockbusters to take the streaming route. At least that might be the case for some of the big movies that Warner Bros. has waiting in the wings. Word on the streets of Hollywood is that Godzilla vs Kong may be the next major movie to land a streaming deal with HBO Max being the likely recipient. The Ho...

‘The Mandalorian’ Comes with Major Revelations and More Questions in “The Jedi”

Naturally, there are spoilers here. Dave Filoni, protege of George Lucas and a shepherd of the future of Star Wars, wrote and directed the thirteenth chapter of The Mandalorian. In this episode, Din Djarin finally makes his way to the forest planet of Corvus and the city of Calodan, and it’s there that we meet a familiar face. In the city of Calodan, former Jedi Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson), has besieged a city controlled by an evil magistrate named Morgan Elsbeth (Diana Lee Inosanto), and he...

‘Wonder Woman 1984′ International Release Dates: Here’s When You Can See Patty Jenkins’ Sequel Outside the U.S.

Last week, WarnerMedia made the surprising and unprecedented decision to release Patty Jenkins‘ highly anticipated superhero sequel Wonder Woman 1984 into theaters on Christmas Day and also simultaneously release it on HBO Max in the United States. (I say “unprecedented” because this is the first time a mega-budgeted superhero film will be put straight onto a streaming service and subscribers will not be charged extra to watch it.) But when will you get to see the movie if you’re not in the U.S...

‘Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian’ Documentary Series Returning for Season 2

Katee Sackhoff on the Thrill and Challenges of Returning to ‘Star Wars’ as Bo-Katan in ‘The Mandalorian’ [Interview]

Katee Sackhoff made her triumphant return to Star Wars by reprising her role as Bo-Katan Kryze in live-action for the first time in a recent episode of The Mandalorian. Though we got the jump on the character’s move from the animated side of Star Wars to live-action, seeing Bo-Katan fly into action wearing her full Mandalorian armor was quite a treat. /Film was pleased to chat with Katee Sackhoff about the thrill and challenges that came with bringing Bo-Katan to life in a more complete way aft...

The New ‘Scream’ Movie Will Pay Respect to the Previous Four Films

It certainly seems like the new Scream movie (which is the fifth film in the franchise but confusingly just called Scream again) is going to be a direct sequel to the previous four films and not a reboot. Even though the sequel angle was apparent due to returning cast members like Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, and David Arquette, there was always a chance that the new Scream could follow in the footsteps of 2018’s Halloween, which was both a direct sequel to the original Halloween and a reboot b...

‘The Christmas Chronicles 2’ Sneak Peek: ‘Deadpool 2’ Actor Julian Dennison Plays Belsnickel

Two years ago, 20 million people reportedly watched Kurt Russell don a red suit and beard to play Santa Claus in Netflix’s The Christmas Chronicles. Goldie Hawn, who is Russell’s real-life partner, cameoed as Mrs. Claus in that film, and now the couple have reunited for The Christmas Chronicles 2, which has been playing in some theaters in advance of its Netflix release this week. Netflix has released a sneak peek clip which showcases the first two minutes of the new sequel, in which Deadpool 2...

‘The Mandalorian’ Feeds the Child’s Hunger with Official, Infuriatingly Expensive Macarons

Last week’s episode of The Mandalorian gave us the latest adorable Baby Yoda scene. We watched the Child admire a pack of blue macarons that a kid was eating, and when they rudely wouldn’t acquiesce to The Child’s desire for one, he rightfully used his Force abilities to snatch them. He even brought them back to the Razor Crest for a space snack (though he ended up throwing them up all over himself). Now The Mandalorian macarons can be yours, but you’re not going to like how much they cost. ...

‘WandaVision’ Will Also Channel More Recent Sitcoms Like ‘Modern Family’ and ‘The Office’

So far, Marvel’s teases of WandaVision have leaned heavily on the black and white, classic television sitcom world that Wanda Maxmioff and Vision find themselves living within. This makes the upcoming series on Disney+ unlike any Marvel Studios project we’ve seen before, but the emulation of classic sitcoms like I Love Lucy and Bewitched is just the beginning of WandaVision‘s journey through sitcom history. In a new interview, Marvel Studios boxx Kevin Feige said WandaVision‘s journey through s...

‘The Croods: A New Age’ Review: An Unremarkable Sequel Best Viewed from the Safety of VOD

2020 has been a year of incalculable oddities, and somewhere fairly high up on the list has to be the very existence of The Croods: A New Age . It’s been nearly eight years since the arrival of the first Croods film, which made a decent enough splash at the box office (primarily internationally) to spawn this long-gestating follow-up. But unlike the other DreamWorks Animation release from 2020, Trolls World Tour , you won’t be able to rent A New Age on VOD instantly. No, if you and...

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Gets Some Love from the Sioux Falls, South Dakota City Council, of All Places

Rian Johnson has been a real trooper on Twitter for the past three years. Despite the exorbitant amount of hate that his 2017 film Star Wars: The Last Jedi has received from certain circles, Johnson has taken it like a champ, spreading humor and goodwill with his followers, and mostly ignoring the trolls that pile into his replies. But even Johnson needs some support every now and then, and a viral video of a Last Jedi fan getting the film’s greatness on the record with the Sioux Falls, South D...
