After months of uncertainty and an awkward public back-and-forth between Melissa McCarthy and Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, it’s finally, officially, 100 percent all happening. Yes, McCarthy is returning to reprise her role as Sookie St. James, the greatest (and clumsiest) chef in Stars Hollow, and the most reliable pal a cool single mom like Lorelai Gilmore could hope for.
It’s hard not to think that Marvel’s latest promo for Captain America: Civil War was inspired by the fan-made “Road to Civil War” super-cut from a couple of weeks ago. Like that video, the official “The Past Is Prelude” teaser takes us through the evolution of Tony Stark and Steve Rogers, from their first solo films all the way through Avengers: Age of Ultron and into Civil War. It’s much shorter than that fan-made super-cut, but it still packs an emotional punch.
With whatever insanity seems to be going on at Warner Bros., today doesn’t seem so good for the film industry. At least we get to see the first teaser for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story tomorrow, but until then, here’s some more disappointing news for you, this time from your ol’ reliable streaming pal Netflix.
Speedy Gonzales might not be the first Looney Tunes character that comes to mind when you think of possible solo film spinoffs, but the lovable animated mouse is indeed getting his very own big screen outing. Why now? Why Speedy? According to the press release, the existence of Donald Trump makes Speedy and his diverse appeal more important than ever.
Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye went from one of the less compelling members of the MCU team to one of its most endearing and delightful thanks to his expanded arc in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hawkeye is gearing up to return to the big screen in Captain America: Civil War, where he'll be pitted against his longtime partner and friend, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, in an epic battle between Avengers. And it looks like he's gotten a bit of a costume upgrade, as you can see in these new pieces of promo art.
Following its record-breaking and pleasantly surprising run at the box office, Deadpool is getting ready to invade your home on DVD and Blu-ray this May. We won’t get an unrated director’s cut of the Merc With a Mouth’s solo outing, and although bonus feature details are not yet available, you can go ahead and pre-order your very own copy of the anti-superhero’s hit film right now. As in, right this moment. You go do that. I’ll wait here.
In one of The Jungle Book’s more inspired bits of casting, Scarlett Johansson voices the python Kaa, a character typically portrayed as male. Johansson's distinctive voice is perfect for the hypnotic snake, who lulls Mowgli into a precarious sense of ease as she recounts his origin story in this new IMAX trailer for Jon Favreau's re-telling of the classic tale.
Maybe a more accurate headline would be “Starman remake in the works despite — or perhaps because of — the existence of Midnight Special.” Either way, today’s news (which is definitely not a prank) that Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy is developing a remake of John Carpenter’s 1984 sci-fi classic is a bit baffling considering that Jeff Nichols already gave us the only updated riff on this concept that we’ll need for the foreseeable future. But that’s not going to stop this remake from happening.
Just when he thought he was out, they pull him back in. Last we saw of Keanu Reeves’ John Wick, he’d effectively wiped out the shady criminals responsible for killing his puppy and stealing his cool car (and, you know, other shady criminal activities), and then he walked off into the sunset with an adorable new rescue pup — presumably returning to his comfortable early retirement. Not so fast, as the sequel promises to put Wick back to work with a new set of problems, and the first official synopsis sheds more light on what those problems will be.
UnREAL creator and former Mad Men writer Marti Noxon has been developing a series based on Gillian Flynn’s debut novel, Sharp Objects, for a couple of years now. But the project only really began to pick up steam recently as Amy Adams signed on to headline the series with Demolition director Jean-Marc Vallee attached to helm. Although previously speculated that the series could end up joining UnREAL on Lifetime, HBO has officially secured the television rights, adding a little extra prestige to the equation.
