"We haven’t started working on a script yet, but ..."
For the past year or so, we have been hearing rumors about plans for a reboot of the Indiana Jones film franchise. First we heard that Bradley Cooper was being considered for the role (NO. NO. NO.) then we heard Chris Pratt was being considered (YES! YES! YES!) then we heard that Steven Spielberg was interested in directing the new film IF Pratt got the role (HELL YES! HELL YES! HELL YES!). Today, tho, we get our first real piece of news about the Indy reboot. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy dished to Vanity Fair magazine that there official plans for a reboot of Indiana Jones … a movie will come, she says. More »

All the Force you need
For the past couple of weeks, we have been getting a steady stream of characters posters promoting the forthcoming release of the male stripper sequel film Magic Mike XXL in theaters this June and yesterday, a new poster was released in honor of Star Wars Day. This newest poster was created with a distinct Star Wars feel to it, which I love. Along with the release of this new poster comes word that a new TRAILER for MMXL will be released tomorrow … so we get a poster to enjoy today and a trailer (with footage of male stripping, I presume) to enjoy tomorrow. Woot! More »

A First Order officer of the Stormtroopers
Back in June we learned officially that both Lupita N’yongo and Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie were added to the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Earlier today, we learned which role Lupita will be playing in the sequel film and we got our first look at the actress “in character”. Right now, we get some follow-up information from the Vanity Fair magazine spread on The Force Awakens that was unveiled today that reveals which role Gwendaline will play in TFA AND we get to see her in character. Remember that chrome-plated stormtrooper that we saw in the most recent trailer for The Force Awakens? That character is Captain Phasma, played by Gwendoline Christie. Meet her below. More »
Real or Fan Art?
Promo concept art reportedly for the upcoming sequel film Captain America: Civil War has made its way online by way of a post on Instagram. The guy who brought us the purported concept art of Wonder Woman‘s new costume in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice is also responsible for releasing this purported concept art for Civil War. As you may know, the events from the new movie The Avengers: Age of Ultron will be carried on Civil War when it is released next May … when Captain America and Iron Man go head to head. Have a look below at this new piece of artwork and see what you think. More »
Task Force X
Back in April, director David Ayer gave us our first look at the cast of the superhero movie Suicide Squad gathered together at their first table read … but NOT in costume. Since then, we’ve seen what Jared Leto will look like as The Joker (tho, it now sounds like his look in the Suicide Squad movie will be a bit different from the insane tattooed version we were previously shown) and have seen on-set photos of the cast, again, not in their superhero costumes. Today, at last, Ayer shows us what the cast of Suicide Squad will look like all dolled up as the comic book characters they will portray in the movie. Click below to get your first look at Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Deadshot (Will Smith) and the rest of the gang in costume as they will appear in 2016′s Suicide Squad. More »

What better way to celebrate Star Wars Day than with a huge dose of NEW Star Wars movie information! Enjoy! More »
"'Being Fresh is More Important than Having Money"
You all know that I love a good documentary. I think the last two I watched were Going Clear, and this new addition to Netflix called Fed Up (on obesity in American, health food and healthy lifestyle myths and the role of major corporations in all of it.) So I got really excited when I heard that there was a new hip-hop/fashion documentary coming soon, called Fresh Dressed. Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Nas, Big Daddy Kane, Riccardo Tisci and André Leon Talley all make appearances, along with the legendary Dapper Dan. Click inside for more!
That's a big cape, Diana
A couple of weeks ago, we got to see a new photo of Wonder Woman‘s costume as it will be featured in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice — the first photo of WW that we’ve gotten since the first photo was released last year. Today we get to see a new promo image that gives us another, much better understanding of what Wonder Woman will be wearing in the new DC Comics superhero movie. As you can see below, WW looks all decked out for battle … all while wearing one, really big cape. HMMMM. More »
From the writer of "The Lion King"
It’s not every day that a book of poetry gets turned into an animated film, but this first look at the re-imagining of Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet tells me that this could start a trend. Salma Hayek’s passion project was an official selection at Cannes, and everyone has been raving about the trailer. This is the film’s synopsis: “Set in a Mediterranean sea-side village, Kamila (Salma Hayek) cleans house for exiled artist and poet Mustafa (Liam Neeson), but the more difficult job is keeping her free-spirited young daughter, Almitra, (Quvenzhané Wallis) out of trouble. The three embark on a journey meant to end with Mustafa’s return home, but first they must evade the authorities who fear that the truth in his words will incite rebellion.” I think it looks absolutely beautiful (with great music), and something about the narrative reminds me a bit of Persepolis, which I loved. Peep the trailer for more!
"We didn’t want it to feel overstuffed"
As much as I loved The Avengers: Age of Ultron, I have to agree that there is a lot going on in the movie, packed with a lot of characters. That’s why it’s really not a surprise to me that the decision was made to leave the villainous (and much-beloved) Loki out of appearing in the movie. In the interview video embedded above, Joss Whedon reveals that they did shoot a scene with Loki but, in the end, he didn’t make the cut and therefore doesn’t appear in the movie. Hopefully, we’ll get to see the footage of Loki that was cut from the movie when Age of Ultron is released on DVD/Blu-Ray but, in the end, I think it was probably the right decision to not include Loki in a movie that already included a pretty big cast.
