Last night in the Us saw the World Premiere of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 and many members of the cast and crew were on the red carpet (see some of the photos from the event here), as well some old Marvel alumni including The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon who was there to show his support.
While he spoke about his continued affection for all things Marvel, Variety asked his about his upcoming move to the Dceu with his forthcoming Batgirl film, which Whedon is currently in the process of writing. A stand-alone film around the character, it will feed into the bigger universe set up at Warner Bros which includes Justice League and Matt Reeves’ The Batman.
But while he is knee-deep in writing mode, Whedon has said that he hasn’t yet got any idea on who he »

Last month it was announced that Joss Whedon has been brought aboard to direct the DC Extended Universe’s upcoming Batgirl movie. Since the news, there’s been plenty of speculation as to who might get the coveted role; Emma Stone always being the name to pop up the most frequently. She’s obviously well suited for the part, and talented ander involvement would put butts in seats. However, it seems that Joss Whedon is interested in going down an alternate route.
“I don’t have my eye on anybody,” Whedon told Variety during the red carpet premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. “I feel like I’m creating this character, I’m gonna dialogue with her and then we’ll see who joins that later on… I doubt it will be a name. This is somewhere where you go and find Batgirl and then you cast her. »

Commentary Commentary“There’s no number in this movie that we didn’t try cutting at some point.”
La La Land may not have won Best Picture at the Academy Awards, but it’s still a delightfully mesmerizing experience with one of last year’s best endings. It hits Blu-ray/DVD next week, and along with an 80 minute making-of documentary the disc features a commentary with the film’s award-winning writer/director and composer.
Keep reading to see what I heard on the commentary for…
La La Land (2016)
1. Chazelle wanted his Cinemascope opening to replicate the widening aspect ratio he recalled seeing in Frank Tashlin’s 1956 film, The Girl Can’t Help It.
2. The opening scene is modeled in some ways on 1932’s Love Me Tonight which “begins with a cacophony of street noises, Paris »

One year ago, Fox Searchlight Pictures sat primed for awards season with a sure-fire contender in Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation.” On the heels of a pricey pick-up at the Sundance Film Festival, riding the ongoing wave of a diversity rally cry, the distributor that had claimed the best picture trophy two out of the previous three years was poised to dominate.
To say the least, none of that panned out as planned. And there was little else remaining in the quiver. Searchlight was ultimately left with a Toronto acquisition (Pablo Larrain’s “Jackie”) and an uncharacteristically modest showing on the circuit.
But the mini-major has been busy lining up its players for a 2017 comeback. Over the last several weeks, Searchlight has set release dates for three films in the thick of the season: “Battle of the Sexes,” from “Little Miss Sunshine” duo Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, »

Jacques Demy’s international breakthrough musical gives us Catherine Deneuve and wall-to-wall Michel Legrand pop-jazz — it’s a different animal than La La Land but they’re being compared anyway. The story of a romance without a happily-ever-after is doggedly naturalistic, despite visuals as bright and buoyant as an old MGM show.

What with all the hubbub about last year’s Oscar favorite La La Land, I wonder if Hollywood will be trotting out more retro-nostalgia, ‘let’s put on a show’ musical fantasy fare. »

There’s a palpable exhilaration that comes from watching this latest film from Park Chan-wook.

Jimmy Kimmel hath decreed: The time has come for celebrity promposals to end. The Jimmy Kimmel Live! host gave an impassioned speech during his monologue Wednesday evening requesting imploring high school students to stop creating elaborate videos to ask celebrities to prom. Calling the concept "obnoxious," Kimmel partially blamed the students, social media and the celebrities themselves. His monologue stemmed from a high school student La La Land-themed promposal to Emma Stone, who wrote him a letter thanking him for his invitation but had to decline citing work in London as the reason. "Emma Stone has to pretend she's in London for two weeks," Kimmel joked. "It's a cute »
The late-night host on Wednesday mocked Jacob Staudenmaier, the 17-year-old junior from Phoenix, Ariz. who had the audacity to ask Oscar winner Emma Stone to his high school prom via an elaborate music video recreating “Another Day of Sun,” the opening number from La La Land. After the video went viral, Staudenmaier received a letter from Stone, currently in production on a film in London, who politely rejected his request but thanked him for thinking of her. »
Despite the fact Spider-Man: Homecoming is just a few months away, we still don’t know who the vast majority of the cast is playing. Bits and pieces of information have surfaced which have confirmed the presence of comic book characters like Flash Thompson and Ned Leeds, but beyond that, we’ve been left at a complete loss. Now though, we may finally have an answer in regards to The Nice Guys star Angourie Rice.
An event recently took place in Japan for Spider-Man: Homecoming which featured the debut of new footage and some very interesting props from the reboot. According to one fan Twitter account, it was there that Rice was confirmed as playing Gwen Stacy, something which makes perfect sense for a number of reasons. For starters, she’s far too talented an actress to be relegated to an unknown supporting character and a cameo of some sort »

This week on ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Skye — er, Daisy — was betrayed by a familiar face, while Jemma, Coulson and Ward laid witness to the unforgiving brutality of Madam Hydra and her No. 2, “The Doctor.”

Having popped up in the back seat of Coulson’s car to say just the right words to scratch an itch his brain alredy had, Daisy was able to convince the “teacher” of the far-out truth, that this Hydra-ruled reality is not a real one. That jibes with what Coulson has always suspected, »

Warner Bros. acquired the movie rights to “Crazy Rich Asians” in October and is fast-tracking the project with plans for an all-Asian cast. The story unfolds in a world of opulence, as new money and old money collide among a group of Chinese families living in Singapore. It follows a Chinese-American economics professor and her boyfriend, who happens to be the heir to a massive fortune.
Color Force’s Nina Jacobson and partner Brad Simpson boarded the project in 2013 when Kevin Kwan’s book of the same name was still in the manuscript stage. Jon M. Chu is directing the adaptation from a screenplay written by Peter Chiarelli »

Our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man is back this summer in his new suit and new surroundings in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but his journey into the McU was never the “end game” but rather the product of the disappointments of the previous two rebooted episodes.
In 2012, Sony reworked their big tentpole franchise after the critical mauling that Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 received in 2007 (still the highest grossing of the lot) and the abandoned 4th installment and hired director Marc Webb, of (500) Days of Summer fame to direct with Andrew Garfield as the titular web-slinger alongside Oscar Winner Emma Stone as Gwen Stacey. Both movies made decent money at the box office (over $1.4billion worldwide) but the sequel, in particular, was expected to make $1billion, and like Spider-Man 3, was torn apart by critics.
