When we last saw Luke Skywalker, he had just flipped the gray hood of his grayer robes off of his head with a flourish to reveal his extremely gray wise man beard and to fix Rey with his piercing gray eyes. Word on the street is he’ll definitely have more lines in The Last Jedi, and probably at least one more outfit. A new rumor also suggests he has some new jewelry that might have something to do with his past and Darth Vader. [Be advised: this gets into some kindaaa spoilery territory, so if you want to go into The Last Jedi blind, run away!]
It’s always interesting to see which bits of the source material superhero movies choose to form their story. In the case of Black Panther, the writers had a wealth of recent storylines to draw from, and it looks like at least parts of the movie will dip a toe into Ta-Nehisi Coates, Roxane Gay, and Yona Harvey’s World of Wakanda spinoff series — namely, the awesome gay female warrior stuff.
Hollywood is a magical land of opportunity where stars are made and exciting new stories are told every day. It’s also a land of crushed dreams where sometimes the projects you’re most excited for never come to fruition. Such is the case with South American border thriller Triple Frontier, once a Kathryn Bigelow project, until now boasting a cast of everyone’s boyfriends Tom Hardy, Channing Tatum, and Mahershala Ali, but as of today shelved once again.
For every review praising the fun and artistry of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are three more thinkpieces bemoaning the fact that we still haven’t gotten our Black Widow movie. And for good reason: She’s a character with a fascinating history whose arcs in the comics are always dynamic and interesting and grounded in current events, plus she’s the only one on the core team who hasn’t had her own movie yet. Every time the prospect is brought up, the folks at Marvel are usually neutral-to-positive about the idea — even her costar Chris Evans thinks she should get her own.
Universal’s The Mummy will soon be upon us, poised to unleash its wrath of ancient magic, curses, and hopefully a lot less bloodthirsty scarabs than the Brendan Fraser version. While you wait for Sunday’s new trailer, please enjoy the new teaser above, as well as a brand-new poster featuring the terrifying Princess Ahmanet.
Who are the Justice League? The group is comprised of a bunch of different heroes in different combinations based on which comic arcs you’re reading at the time, but it always seems to have three core members: Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman. Warner Bros. new Justice League movie didn’t feature the red-caped Kryptonian in this weekend’s trailer, and seems to be acting like he won’t be in the movie. Even Zack Snyder has been cagey about it.
Every time an actor says they’re retiring, or quitting, or done playing a role, there’s always some speculation that they’ll come back once the stars align. Sometimes that works, like how Hayao Miyazaki has claimed he’s retiring at least three times before making a grand return some months later. Hugh Jackman told everyone, and continues to tell everyone, that Logan is his last-ever appearance as Wolverine, but that hasn’t stopped some from trying to figure out ways in which he could be finagled into future X-Men movies.
Though it felt kind of wrong, when Carrie Fisher died in December a lot of us wondered how the Star Wars movies would weather her loss. Had she finished shooting all her scenes? (She had, at least for Episode 8.) How integral to the plot of Episodes 8 and 9 was Leia going to be? Would the story need to be changed to accommodate for her absence? Some wondered if her likeness would be Tarkin’d onto a body stand-in for the final movie, which felt wrong even to think about. (It’s not happening, thankfully.) Lucasfilm has a lot to consider after losing one of its biggest stars, but it sounds like none of The Last Jedi is going to be changed because of her death.
Sony and Mattel’s Barbie movie has hit snag after snag pretty much since its inception. At first, Diablo Cody was signed on to write the screenplay before tossing out her version in favor of competing three other writers against each other. Sony chose the winner and Amy Schumer joined the film to star (after a few touch-ups to the screenplay), but today she announced that, due to scheduling problems, she won’t be playing the iconic doll after all.
Obama hasn’t even been out of the White House for six months and already nostalgia for what used to be has hit its zenith amongst a good portion of the country. Anonymous Content and Universal Pictures are teaming up to adapt a book proposal written by a former White House stenographer, titled From the Corner of the Oval.
One of the things that’s different about the new Beauty and the Beast — other than the fact that it’s live-action — is that it’s 45 minutes longer than the original animated movie. There are a few new additions: expanded characters, three completely new songs, and some extended flashbacks. One of these flashbacks is an answer to one mystery die-hard Beauty and the Beast fans have been asking since 1991: What happened to Belle’s mother?
There are three perfect combinations in the world: peanut butter and jelly, steak and red wine, and The Rock and a good old-fashioned blow-’em-up action movie. Good news for Dwayne Johnson fans: If you enjoyed watching him save his family from an enormous earthquake in 2015’s San Andreas, you’ll love watching him save his family from atop a burning building in Skyscraper, officially coming summer 2018.
