This year’s Best Director race ultimately came down to Alejandro González Iñárritu’s crafty work on Birdman, and Richard Linklater’s masterful work over the course of 12 years on Boyhood. Tonight, the Academy honored Iñárritu, presenting him with the award for Best Director for Birdman at the 2015 Oscars.
The Best Supporting Actress category was a tough one to predict this year, with five wonderful nominees all delivering some of their most vibrant work to date. But tonight the Academy recognized Patricia Arquette, giving her the Best Supporting Actress award at the 2015 Oscars for her moving performance in Richard Linklater’s Boyhood.
It seemed inevitable, and there were some other great contenders, but J.K. Simmons has been awarded the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor at the 2015 Academy Awards. Simmons took home the statue for his fantastic, unnerving role as Fletcher, the intimidating band instructor in Whiplash.
Last we heard, Warner Bros. hadn’t yet officially given the Wonder Woman solo film the green light, which wasn’t entirely surprising given that a script wasn’t firmly in place. But today brings good news on the Wonder Woman front: shooting will begin this fall for the hero’s upcoming solo adventure, with — as previously confirmed — Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad vet Michelle MacLaren in the director’s chair.
Although Marvel hasn’t included a Hulk film in their Phase 3 plans, the possibility for a new solo movie for Bruce Banner and his smashing alter-ego isn’t entirely out of the question — Marvel did just make room for a new Spider-Man film on their schedule, after all. And while it doesn’t appear that the studio is actively developing a new Hulk movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron star Mark Ruffalo remains optimistic, hinting at the possibilities for his big green character in the future of the MCU.
It was the news we’d all be hoping and wishing and waiting for: last night, Marvel officially announced that they’ve reached an agreement with Sony for a Spider-Man crossover, which could also allow for MCU characters to crossover into Spidey’s own films. On top of that, Marvel is teaming up with Sony for a new ‘Spider-Man’ movie, to hit theaters in 2017. But who will play the web-slinger? As predicted, it won’t be Andrew Garfield. We’ve got a little more info on Marvel and Sony’s plans, which shed even more optimistic light on this very positive (and super exciting!) news.
If the Super Bowl spot and this morning’s extended trailer just weren’t enough for you ‘Fast and Furious’ fanatics, then we’ve got even more engine-roaring goodness for you. Universal has released a new official poster for ‘Furious 7,’ along with a whole gallery of images featuring some familiar faces (and some new ones) to get you all revved up for the upcoming sequel.
Ever since Marvel formally announced the casting of Benedict Cumberbatch as Sorcerer Supreme in their upcoming ‘Doctor Strange’ film, we haven’t heard much else about the project. Set to be directed by Scott Derrickson, the film is currently scheduled for a 2016 release date, so it’s about time that we started hearing a little more about who else will be joining Cumberbatch as the project heads closer to production—like Chiwetel Ejiofor, who is reportedly in talks for a role.
Let’s be honest here: you probably spend more time browsing your options on Netflix Instant than you do actually watching anything. And now to add to your ongoing decision-making dilemma, Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos has announced that the service plans to start launching 20 (twenty!) new original series a year.

We won’t know exactly how graphic ‘50 Shades of Grey’ is going to be until we see the film with our own cursed eyeballs, but we now officially know that the film has been given an R-rating by the pearl-clutching members of the MPAA. What does that R-rating stand for? Graphic nudity, “strong sexual content,” and “unusual behavior.” Wait, what the hell is unusual behavior?!
