‘The Old Guard’: Charlize Theron and KiKi Layne Will Play Immortal Mercenaries For Netflix

Charlize Theron is the latest A-list movie star to make a movie with Netflix. The Mad Max: Fury Road actress will co-star with KiKi Layne (If Beale Street Could Talk) in The Old Guard, a movie adaptation of the recent comic series about “a covert group of immortal mercenaries who must fight to keep their team together when their extraordinary abilities are exposed.” That may sound like a somewhat generic description, but this film sounds like it could be something very special.

Why Will Smith Turned Down ‘The Matrix’

It’s a well-known piece of film trivia that Will Smith turned down The Matrix. It’s up there on the list of other famous almost-casts: Molly Ringwald could have been in Pretty Woman, Eric Stoltz was Marty McFly for a few weeks of filming. But Smith missing out on the role of Neo in The Matrix always seemed especially tragic considering he turned it down to star in the biggest bomb of his early career, Wild Wild West. “I’m not proud of it,” Smith said of the Western comedy in the latest entry of...

‘Veep’ actor Matt Walsh talks end of HBO series and playing the ‘Beauty’ in a rom-com at a French vineyard

When HBO’s “Veep” went on hiatus, actor Matt Walsh had a chance to swap his role as communications director to Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s Vice President Selina Meyer to play a rumpled romantic lead in a rom-com filmed in France. So off he went. The seventh and final season of “Veep” arrives this spring, having wrapped up shooting in December just before the film “Under The Eiffel Tower” arrived in theaters and digital services this month. “The ride has been tremendous,” Walsh said of the time he’s sp...

Live Action Aladdin Movie Trailer Despised

The first trailer for another live-action Disney film has arrived and predictably generated scorn across the internet, with Aladdin being the next beloved movie to be bastardized by the evils of live action (the inclusion of Will Smith also drawing questionable reactions). The 1-minute trailer will no doubt instill hate in viewers: YouTube may no […]

‘Aladdin’s New Genie Really Blue Everyone’s Minds

And not in a good way Back in December we got a first look at Genie as played by Will Smith in the upcoming Aladdin remake directed by Guy Ritchie, and obviously people weren’t happy, because nobody’s ever happy. Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly The first round of criticism came as a result of Genie not being blue, which is fair, because that’s part of his iconic look, so I get that. HOWEVER. If you’ll all recall, Genie also did take human form in the original ...

‘Aladdin’ TV Spot Finally Reveals Will Smith as the Big Blue Genie

When the first teaser trailer for Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin first arrived, fans were fairly underwhelmed. Not only did the teaser offer very little footage of Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Jasmine, but it didn’t give us a look at Will Smith as the genie in the famous lamp at the center of the story. Even when the first images of Will Smith in the movie arrived, he wasn’t blue like the famed genie voiced by Robin Williams in the 1992 animated classic. But that changed t...

Movie Mixtape: 6 Movies to See After You See ‘Glass’

The first act of The Incredibles is still the fairest portrayal of what superhero home life would look like. The flurry of domestic bliss and panic mirrors a lot of families with young children, but there’s an additional anxious hum to the rhythm of their lives. That fear of being caught, of suppressing who they are for the “greater good” of a fearful, misinformed larger society imbues every choice they make. Yet it’s only one family. One view on what it might be like for a very small group of ...

‘Glass’ Expected to Shatter January Box Office Records

It’s still a few weeks away from release, but early Glass box office tracking indicates M. Night Shyamalan‘s climb back to the top is holding strong. The thriller, which serves as a sequel to both Unbreakable and Split, is expected to haul in around $50 million when it opens January 18, kicking-off the MLK weekend. If this turns out to be accurate, it would give Glass the second-biggest MLK weekend opening ever. I’m very happy for M. Night Shyamalan. The filmmaker had great critical and box ...
