Disney has several live-action remakes in development, but two titles in particular have attracted a little extra attention: Aladdin and Mulan. Although pop culture is becoming increasingly socially conscious, Hollywood’s unfortunate history of whitewashing has left many (rightfully) concerned over the casting for both of these films, especially since the studio behind them doesn’t exactly have the best track record with diversity. And while Disney has made it clear that they’re committed to casting actors of relevant ethnicity in Aladdin and Mulan, a new report reveals that the studio is struggling to do so for at least one of those projects.
Of the two ensemble films Jeremy Renner is currently shooting, you’d think the one that isn’t an action-packed superhero flick wouldn’t result in a couple of broken bones — but that’s exactly what happened to the Marvel star on the set of the upcoming comedy movie Tag, which centers on a group of friends that have been participating in an intense 30-year version of the titular game. Seems like something along the lines of Avengers: Infinity War would involve a greater risk of physical injury. You would think that, and you would be wrong.
Has this ever happened to you? Your kid is browsing the ol’ digital video library for something fun to watch when they settle on Captain Phillips, that contemporary Tom Hanks feel good classic. Unfortunately, it has some “mature content,” like a handful of swears and intense moments, and you don’t even want to think about what Paul Greengrass’ camerawork is going to do to that kid. Lucky for you, Sony’s “Clean Version” initiative is here to sanitize all that questionable content, making several movies in their library fun for the whole family.
After years of taunting us with the possibility of a (super) late-coming sequel to Top Gun, it’s actually happening. Tom Cruise is back, which guarantees our butts will be in those seats on opening day, no matter what. If you thought they were going to go with a basic title like Top Gun 2 for this major movie event, you were sadly mistaken.
Just yesterday, Tom Cruise himself confirmed that Top Gun 2 is finally, officially, honest-to-goodness-they’re-not-joking-this-time happening. Today, it looks like it’s even closer to reality than we thought, as Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski is reportedly the frontrunner to helm the long-promised sequel to Tony Scott’s 1986 classic — not entirely surprising, since he’s worked with Cruise before.
With post-production well underway, Justice League is on schedule to hit theaters in November, but the DC superhero epic will have to enter the homestretch without Zack Snyder. The director is officially stepping away from the film to tend to a deeply personal family tragedy, as Snyder, along with wife and creative partner Deborah, cope with the sudden loss of their daughter.
It’s been a rough week (it’s only Wednesday), and things just got a little more upsetting: Michael Parks, the incomparable character actor best known for his roles in Twin Peaks, Kill Bill and From Dusk Till Dawn, has passed away at the age of 77. Kevin Smith broke the news this morning on Instagram, where he shared a tribute to the star of his horror films Tusk and Red State.
Today’s rumor is somewhat out of left field, and yet entire plausible once you consider it: According to a suspicious tweet posted by Josh Gad, the actor and recent star of Beauty and the Beast might be playing The Penguin in The Batman. And while an actor sharing a photo of a fictional character seemingly at random could mean just about anything, there is some additional evidence to support his potential involvement.
It’s been three years since the first Guardians of the Galaxy hit theaters, and according to James Gunn, not a single fan has been able to find that one super-obscure easter egg — though some have gotten pretty close. (And if you think Gunn’s pulling your chain, he offered $100,000 to anyone who could prove it doesn’t exist.) With the sequel hitting theaters next week, Gunn’s at it again, confirming that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 contains another one of those pesky, cleverly-concealed easter eggs, and he’s not giving you any hints.
“Wait, but what happened to Dr. Elizabeth Shaw?” That’s been one of our biggest questions in the months leading up to the release of Alien: Covenant, which introduces us to a new crew and inches ever closer to the events in Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror classic. In honor of Alien Day, 20th Century Fox has released a new prologue that helps bridge the gap between Prometheus and Covenant…and reveals the fate of Noomi Rapace’s Dr. Shaw.
Even though Jean Dujardin was the obvious choice, Ewan McGregor delivered a perfectly charming take on Lumiere in Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast. Not only was the film a huge hit at the box-office (breaking a record previously held by Star Wars — STAR WARS), but it seems like McGregor was a hit with Disney, as the studio is eyeing the actor to take the lead in another live-action project based on a beloved classic property.
After years of toying with and publicly teasing the possibility of a sequel to his 2000 film Unbreakable, M. Night Shyamalan is finally ready to pull the trigger. The director has officially set a return to his darkly subversive take on the superhero genre as his next project. The follow-up, titled Glass, will hit theaters in 2019 — and those are the basics. If you want to know more, you’re warned of potential SPOILERS for another Shyamalan film with connections to Unbreakable.
