John Boyega Teases “Visually Crazy” Moment in ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’

John Boyega has witnessed some pretty wild things on Star Wars movie sets: the Poe Dameron-led X-wing rescue on Takodana, Han Solo’s death, and Luke Skywalker’s incredible reveal at the end of The Last Jedi. But all of that apparently pales in comparison to the “visually crazy” moment Boyega is teasing in J.J. Abrams‘ upcoming Star Wars: Episode 9.

How ‘The Godfather’ Influenced Ryan Coogler’s ‘Black Panther’ Ending

Black Panther‘s ending is one of the most impactful conclusions in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, but it’s a good thing those productions build several days of reshoots into their process, because the entire ending was reworked at the last minute. Read more about the original Black Panther ending and how co-writer/director Ryan Coogler took inspiration from The Godfather to craft a new finale for the film. Michael Shawver, one of Black Panther‘s editors, spoke with CinemaBlend and reve...

Disney’s Live-Action ‘Pinocchio’ May Have Lost ‘Paddington’ Director Paul King

Over the past ten years, many filmmakers have tried and failed to direct a new version of Pinocchio. Guillermo del Toro is finally getting his stop-motion Pinocchio passion project made at Netflix, and Disney is primed to bring the character back in live-action like the other remakes of their animated catalogue. But a new update from the Disney movie’s would-be cinematographer suggests that version, which might have starred Tom Hanks as Geppetto, may have now lost Paddington director Paul King,...

Disney to Make Live-Action ‘Hunchback of Notre Dame’ Musical Possibly Starring Josh Gad

The Hunchback of Notre Dame is the next beloved Disney animated staple to get the live-action treatment. The live-action musical, simply titled Hunchback, will adapt not only 1996 Disney film but the 1831 Victor Hugo novel upon which it was based. And if you’re wondering exactly how they’re going to turn this surprisingly dark Disney animated movie into a family-friendly live-action film, the House of Mouse is reportedly eyeing its favorite comedic bit player, Josh Gad, for the lead. Deadlin...

Adam Driver Was Told Where ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’ Would End Up Before Filming ‘The Force Awakens’

Adam Driver has been keeping a Star Wars secret for several years, and it’s not something mundane like Kylo Ren getting his helmet back in Star Wars: Episode 9. In a new interview, Driver says he’s known for a long time “where it was all going,” so read on as we narrow down the possibilities of what he’s talking about. Speaking with Deadline, Driver compared the experience of working on the HBO series Girls to working on the Star Wars movies, dropping one particularly interesting bit of infor...

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Trailer Breakdown: Nick Fury Just Highjacked Our Summer Vacation

Fans have been waiting for the Spider-Man: Far From Home teaser trailer since it debuted down at the CCXP convention down in Brazil, and today it finally arrived. Though it doesn’t feel quite as thrilling as the visual overload and excitement that came from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse last month, it’s good to have Tom Holland back as Peter Parker, especially since the last time we saw him, he wasn’t feeling too well. Of course, since this is our first official glimpse at any footage from ...

‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ Clip: Watch the Entire “A Place Called Slaughter Race” Musical Sequence

Every Disney princess deserves their big sweeping solo song, and in Ralph Breaks the Internet, Princess Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) got one — albeit an appropriately offbeat one. The young video game racer and quirky princess got her own solo song penned by the legendary Disney maestro Alan Menken in a song that is equal parts self-deprecating and inspirational, in the vein of both Wreck-It Ralph movies. But boy does Vanellope sing her little heart out about murderous street racing in the full ...

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Spoiler Possibly Revealed by an Audi Commercial

The Consumer Electronics Show is happening right now in Las Vegas. And while 99% of what’s happening there really doesn’t concern film and television news, at least one little piece of information coming out of the electronics convention is worth talking about, because it involves a certain revelation about Avengers: Endgame. If there’s one thing that consistently ruins plot points and details in blockbuster movies, it’s cross-promotional materials, whether they’re toys or product placement dea...

‘Star Wars Episode 9’ Crew Gift Teases a Return to a Familiar Planet and Another Mystery

We’re over a week into 2019, and we still don’t have a teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode 9. Word on the street is that might change sooner than later, but at this point, who knows when director J.J. Abrams wants to start opening the mystery box to let some secrets out. In the meantime, it looks like a gift given to crew members may have revealed a new detail about one of the locations featured in Star Wars Episode 9. However, the source of this latest reveal also raises another mysterious qu...

‘Captain Marvel’ Star Jude Law on His Mysterious Mentor-Type Character [Set Visit Interview]

When Jude Law was first cast in Captain Marvel, it was reported that he was playing Dr. Walter Lawson, a character better known to comic book fans as Mar-Vell. But since that announcement, his role has remained a mystery and Disney isn’t commenting. While visiting the set of the film, the mystery continued, but Disney wasn’t hiding Law from us. We saw him suit up with Starforce and go into action alongside Brie Larsen’s Carol Danvers. We were shown footage of the character training Carol. So if...

‘Captain Marvel’ Executive Producer Jonathan Schwartz Reveals Everything He Can About Marvel’s Next Movie [Set Visit Interview]

You probably don’t know Jonathan Schwartz, and while walking the set of a Marvel movie, you might not even notice the smart guy with glasses in the corner. But he’s one of the architects of the modern Marvel Cinematic Universe. Just as Marvel Studios mastermind Kevin Feige started as the assistant to X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner, Schwartz began his career as the assistant to Feige on Iron Man 2.

How ‘Captain Marvel’ Was Largely Inspired By ‘RoboCop’

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is packed with references and homages to staples of several different genres, from Three Days of the Condor (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) to Inception (Doctor Strange). One would be forgiven for assuming that with all of the characters wandering around the MCU in metal suits, the 1987 sci-fi action classic RoboCop would have been a mainstay reference in that conversation as well, but it seems like the upcoming Captain Marvel is the first MCU movie to be hea...

Ben Mendelsohn Hilariously Explains What It Means to Be a Skrull in ‘Captain Marvel’ [Set Visit Interview]

Marvel is notoriously secretive about their projects and the cast and crew are very tight-lipped about a film in production. Before visiting a Marvel set, the SHIELD-style Marvel security make you sign an NDA and take a photo on an iPad. Despite NDAs and embargoes, no one can be trusted and the stars of these films are often unsure of what they can and not say in on set interviews. Sometimes this can be frustrating, but other times it can be hilarious. While visiting the set of Captain Marvel...

‘Captain Marvel’ Is Like An ’80s or ’90s Buddy Cop Movie; Tickets On Sale Now

Shane Black broke into Hollywood as the writer of 1980s action staple Lethal Weapon, and he’d eventually direct a Marvel Studios movie when he made Iron Man 3. But weirdly, it’s Black’s first produced screenplay that’s still providing inspiration for new Marvel Cinematic Universe entries: it turns out the upcoming Captain Marvel is inspired by buddy cop movies from that era, and Lethal Weapon is specifically name-checked in a new interview with directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.

Disney Won’t Debut New ‘Star Wars’ Movies Through Their Streaming Service First

Even though Disney is planning a lot of original content for debut on their forthcoming Disney+ subscription streaming service launching late in 2019, one of their biggest franchises won’t be debuting any new movies there. In a recent interview, Disney CEO Bob Iger said that even though they’re spending big bucks on new projects like The Mandalorian, the first live-action Star Wars series ever, the feature-length adventures from a galaxy far, far away are simply too big to premiere only in thei...

‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Reboot Will Save Disney Millions by Making Johnny Depp Walk the Plank

Ahoy, mateys! Disney is still putting together their Pirates of the Caribbean reboot, and while we know very little about the project itself, we do know that Johnny Depp is getting the old heave-ho. Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow is not expected to return, and his departure is going to save the House of Mouse enough loot to fill up several treasure chests. While Depp fans may be disappointed about this, Disney is likely happy to set sail without him, and save some of their precious booty in the pr...

The Muppets Promise a “Big Surprise” in 2019, But What Could It Be?

Right now, Disney is sitting on the rights to some of the most famous puppets in history: Jim Henson’s The Muppets. However, they haven’t been able to figure out what to do with them for years now (even Frank Oz agrees with that), and it feels like they’re just collecting dust. But that might be changing in 2019 according to a tease from Kermit the Frog himself. Could there be a Muppets 2019 project in the works?

The ‘Roger Rabbit’ Sequel Script is ‘Wonderful’, Says Robert Zemeckis, But Disney Isn’t Making It

It’s been 30 years since the ground-breaking Who Framed Roger Rabbit hit theaters, and it might be 30 more before we ever see a sequel. The blend of live-action and animation was a smash-hit at the box office, but despite several attempts, a follow-up never got off the ground. According to Robert Zemeckis, the latest Roger Rabbit sequel script is done, and pretty darn good. But Disney doesn’t seem interested.
