Paul Feig is just going to make his own Dark Universe

Paul Feig is just going to make his own Dark Universe

The Dark Universe is dead, but the thing about monsters is that they always find a way to come back. A Depp-less version of The Invisible Man is already in the works , and now Paul Feig is digging into Universal’s monster toybox for his own monument to the failed potential of the Dark Universe. According to Deadline, Feig is going to write and direct a movie called Dark Army that is somehow...

Nick Jonas and Roland Emmerich go to war in the new trailer for Midway

Nick Jonas and Roland Emmerich go to war in the new trailer for Midway

One of the best things about World War II movies is that the stories from the war will always be relevant enough to keep retelling, and there will always be new generations of hot, young Hollywood actors to put in 1940s-era costumes and in CG airplanes. This time around, we’ve got Nick Jonas, Ed Skrein, Luke Evans, Darren Criss, Patrick Wilson, Aaron Eckhart, Dennis Quaid, Woody...

Takashi Miike and a severed hand lead Fantastic Fest's third wave

The Toronto International Film Festival wraps up this week, which means it’s almost time to transition from poutine to queso as the Alamo Drafthouse gears up for September’s other big film-festival event, Fantastic Fest. The first waves of Fantastic Fest programming brought the U.S. premieres of Jojo Rabbit and Knives Out to Austin, along with world premieres like In The Tall Grass,...

Read this: Filming The Amazing Spider-Man’s fish dinner scene required “about 90 branzinos”

Read this: Filming The Amazing Spider-Man’s fish dinner scene required “about 90 branzinos”

Over the course of just a few minutes in 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man , Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Denis Leary sit around a dinner table eating branzino—which, unlike Garfield’s Peter Parker, we can confidently tell you is a kind of fish. The scene really isn’t all that remarkable aside from the word “branzino” being said emphatically and Garfield having a heated argument with a ’90s...

Margot Robbie has found a director to make her Tank Girl movie

Earlier this week, Tank Girl co-creator Alan Martin (assuming it’s really him on Twitter) tweeted that Margot Robbie’s production company LuckyChap Entertainment had picked up the rights to Tank Girl, having already put in a few months of development (and with no input from Martin or his fellow co-creator Jamie Hewlett). Now, according to Collider, Robbie has already found a director: Miles...

Sorry, 'shippers: Robert Pattinson's Batman will never meet Joaquin Phoenix's Joker

Sorry, 'shippers: Robert Pattinson's Batman will never meet Joaquin Phoenix's Joker

Indicating that Warner Bros. and DC may have actually learned a lesson from its desperate need to compete with Marvel Studios by forcing together a cinematic universe out of movies that didn’t necessarily deserve one, Joker director Todd Phillips ha declared that Joaquin Phoenix’s Clown Prince Of Crime will “definitely not” meet the new Robert Pattinson Batman in some future crossover movie....

James Cameron says "people need to wake the fuck up" about climate change

James Cameron says "people need to wake the fuck up" about climate change

Everyone thought it was ridiculous to make a bunch of Avatar sequels when very few people have fond memories of the original, but maybe the reason James Cameron was so desperate to make these movies happen is that he realized nobody actually paid attention to the first one. See, the military people were bad guys, because they wanted the Unobtanium at any cost—even if it meant destroying a...

Jennifer Lopez shares her pole dancing journey for Hustlers, confirms we’re not all athletes

Jennifer Lopez is currently rocking the pole dancing routine along with her Hustlers co-stars on the big screen, but even for a former Fly Girl like herself, she says it was not an easy skill to learn. J. Lo shared a behind-the-scenes video on her YouTube channel tracing her journey to master pole dancing in extremely high heels that began weeks before pre-production.

Director Gregory Nava on why his 1984 immigration drama El Norte is more relevant than ever

Director Gregory Nava on why his 1984 immigration drama El Norte is more relevant than ever

Like the Mayan teenagers whose quiet lives are upended by forces beyond their control at the beginning of Gregory Nava’s 1984 debut, El Norte is an unassuming film of unexpected depth. On its surface, it’s a straightforward realist drama about Rosa (Zaide Silvia Gutiérrez) and Enrique (David Villalpando), siblings who flee political violence in their native Guatemala and make a perilous...

Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu responds to controversy over writers' pay disparity

Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu responds to controversy over writers' pay disparity

Last week , the general public learned that Crazy Rich Asians co-writer Adele Lim had dropped out of working on the film’s upcoming sequel late last year after she discovered that the other co-writer—white man Peter Chiarelli—was being paid nearly 10 times more than she was for the same job. The justification (according to The Hollywood Reporter) was apparently that the two writers were being...

Paramount's remaking Face/Off, as if it can improve upon perfection

They remade Poltergeist and we balked . They remade Aladdin and we laughed . Now, they’re remaking Face/Off. And we riot. Deadline reports that Paramount Pictures has hired one of the Sonic The Hedgehog screenwriters to reboot John Woo’s absolutely perfect 1997 action thriller. Have they considered just eating a peach for hours instead?

Hayley Atwell to get back into the spy business for Mission: Impossible

Hayley Atwell to get back into the spy business for Mission: Impossible

It’s only been a little more than a year since Tom Cruise last took on an impossible mission in Fallout , but the magical bullshit of Scientology isn’t going to implicitly endorse itself, so Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie are already setting the stage for the first of their next two death-defying Mission: Impossible movies—which, as we previously reported, are coming in 2021 and...

Venice loves villains, as Joker and Roman Polanski both take home major festival awards

A big day for topics that the people in your Twitter replies resolutely will not shut the fuck up about today, as the Venice Film Festival handed out major awards to Todd Phillips’ Joker and Roman Polanski’s An Officer And A Spy. Phillips’ Scorsese-aping comic book noir—which has drawn praise for Joaquin Phoenix’s performance, and quiet sighs of despair from the already-strained...

The Doctor Sleep team rebuilt the Overlook from Stanley Kubrick's original blueprints

The Doctor Sleep team rebuilt the Overlook from Stanley Kubrick's original blueprints

The Overlook Hotel is a bad place. But it’s also a great location. Much has been written (and, in at least one memorable case , rambled good-naturedly into a tape recorder) about how the iconic sets from Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining deliberately and cruelly screw with a viewer’s head, mashing together vast, icy spaces in ways that frequently don’t make a lot of logical sense. It would be, to...

Sony still struggling to walk people through the stages of Spider-grief

Sony still struggling to walk people through the stages of Spider-grief

Hope is one of those ostensibly positive traits that comic book superheroes are always yelling about; it’s up there with “self-esteem” and “the power of friendship” in terms of qualities supposedly capable of saving the world from great evil. (We’ve always been more convinced by heaping helpfuls of gamma radiation or mutant magnet powers, but hey, to each their own.) But no amount of be-caped...
