Kevin Feige Confirms Charlie Cox Is The MCU's Daredevil

It's hard to deny that a lot of the actors who play our favorite Marvel superheroes are just synonymous with their characters at this point. Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson. Who else would play those roles? In the same way, actor Charlie Cox has also become known for his turn as Matt Murdock, AKA the tortured, strong, and religiously inclined Hell's Kitchen hero known as Daredevil — and though Cox has yet to show up in the MCU, it appears Marvel boss Kevin Feige is interested ...

‘He didn’t come back’: the grim camps from where refugees set off for UK

In transient tent towns near Dunkirk people disappear and no one knows if they made it safely across the Channel For four days this week Karwan Tahir shared a tent in the woods around Dunkirk with a young man named Karim. In the early hours of Wednesday morning Karim set off for the UK – a journey in darkness to the nearby beach, and from there into the vast and uncertain Channel in a flimsy dinghy.“I don’t know if he made it or if he drowned,” Tahir said on Friday, showing off the living space ...

The Best Keira Knightley Movies Ranked

Keira Knightley is the queen of the past — she is probably the one name most associated with period films over the last 20 years. In fact, it's easy to forget that Knightley is only 36, as she has both been acting for so long and also played brides in two movies ("Love Actually" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl") while still aged just 17. While historical films, especially romantic ones, are very much Knightley's specialty, she has broken out into contemporary-set film...

Chloe Zhao Pitched That Eternals Credits Character Reveal With The Actor Already In Mind

Chloe Zhao was tapped to helm Marvel's "Eternals" weeks before she began production on "Nomadland," the film that would win her an Academy Award. The director behind the tender 2017 Western "The Rider" won acclaim when that film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, and the buzz followed through on her next projects. So from the onset, we knew the significance of Zhao's involvement. Sure enough, she created a wildly ambitious and thoroughly divisive Marvel film, where cosmic madness and intimat...

Eternals Star Barry Keoghan Says Druig Could Beat Thanos, And Those Are Fighting Words

The Eternals have been around since before Thanos was born, and at least one of them thinks he could wipe the floor with the Mad Titan. Barry Keoghan plays Druig in "Eternals," the 26th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in theaters now. Druig is 7,000 years old and he has mind control powers, but he wouldn't need them to defeat Thanos, as far as Keoghan is concerned.In an interview with during the press junket for "Eternals," Keoghan all but issued a challenge to Josh Brolin h...

Denis Villeneuve Thinks Christopher Nolan Is A 'Master,' Doesn't Consider Himself On That Level

Christopher Nolan was arguably the quintessential filmmaker of the 2000s, but if there's any filmmaker who could give him a run for his money in the 2010s and 2020s, it's "Dune" director Denis Villeneuve. With thrillers and sci-fi epics like "Prisoners," "Enemy," "Sicario," "Arrival," and "Blade Runner," Villeneuve has established himself as one of the most exciting new auteurs to come along in the last decade or so. However, while fans might enjoy debating the merits of Villeneuve versus Nolan,...

Memento Ending Explained: Explained Ending Memento

Much like M. Night Shyamalan has doomed himself as forever Hollywood's twist-ending guy, Christopher Nolan has steadily become the crank who just can't stop himself tinkering with time.I know this will upset a lot of Nolan fans, but his dedication to exploring this theme has become increasingly tiresome. What did the ponderous triple timescale in "Dunkirk" do other than make us take a step back from the drama and ask "why?" And don't even get me started on "Tenet." If you want a one-word review ...

The 14 Greatest War Movies Of The 21st Century

The war movie has been around as long as movies themselves, and they make for an important historical document. Comparing WWII movies made during or just after that war with ones made 50 to 70 years later, with the benefit of hindsight, is a fascinating exercise. While the Second World War does dominate the war movies that are made to this day, lesser-known conflicts around the world and throughout history also make for compelling subjects. Hardly any of the war movies mentioned here feature big...

Quentin Tarantino Gives a Tour of Video Archives, the Store Where He Worked Before Becoming a Filmmaker

When Quentin Tarantino hit it big in the 1990s with Reservoir Dogs, and then much bigger with Pulp Fiction, he became known as the auteur who’d received his film education by working as a video-store clerk. But like much Hollywood hype, that story wasn’t quite true. “No, I was already a movie expert,” says the man himself in a clip from the 1994 BBC documentary Quentin Tarantino: Hollywood’s Boy Wonder. “That’s how I got hired at Video Archives.” Located in the South Bay — a comparativel...

The 15 Worst Sci-Fi Movies Of The 21st Century (So Far)

Science fiction pushes our imaginations beyond reality, but creating it is like "The Matrix" -- sci-fi stories only work if we're plugged in for the ride. Anything that ruins the illusion breaks the architecture, and there's no colorful pill that we can take to recover.Bad science fiction can mistake what it means to tell an epic tale, bloating itself with unneeded characters, haphazard worldbuilding, and incoherent plots. Without consistent internal logic, victories feel unearned, while the aud...

They found their voices by publishing in the Paris cinephile institution of Cahiers du cinéma; a few decades later, Quentin Tarantino found his own by working at the Manhattan Beach cinephile institution of Video Archives.

Other Ryan Reynolds Movies You Should Watch After Free Guy

Sure. Numbing? That too. It's hard to shake the sense that we've already seen everything that theaters have to offer, given that we got our first glimpses of "Black Widow" and "F9" more than a year a half ago. So, in this strange season, what does it take to renew a moviegoer's excitement?

Don't Worry, Quentin Tarantino Didn't Understand Tenet Either

Christopher Nolan's "Tenet" was big, ambitious, and also kind of confusing. It didn't help that the sound was mixed in such a way that it was difficult to understand what the heck everyone was saying. If you were perplexed by Nolan's time-bending action pic, don't fret – you're in good company. During a recent podcast appearance, Quentin Tarantino revealed that the film confused him and that he would probably be better served by checking it out again. Just call him Quentenet Tenetino! Or don't! ...
