It’s been a while since we heard anything about Kenneth Branagh’s new adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express, based on Agatha Christie’s classic mystery novel. Branagh is set to direct the film, in which he’ll also star as famed fictional detective Hercule Poirot, and it looks like he’s begun assembling his cast of suspects, as Angelina Jolie is in talks to come aboard the project.
Faith-based films have been riding a wildly successful wave for several years now, only recently stumbling a bit with the underwhelming box office returns for God’s Not Dead 2. And while that seemed to indicate that faithful audiences might not be too keen on sequels, Mel Gibson may very well prove that theory wrong as the actor and director is apparently plotting a sequel to The Passion of the Christ.
Following their delightful appearance with the original Ghostbusters cast on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the ladies of Paul Feig’s reboot — along with their dopey receptionist — have assembled in a brand new poster. And if that’s not enough for you, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy each have their very own featurette, offering a proper intro to their respective characters along with a little dose of new footage.
Christopher McQuarrie didn’t return to write and direct Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, but at least it’s because he’s working with Tom Cruise on a different sequel (Mission: Impossible 6). Still, a new Jack Reacher movie is something we can all look forward to, and the first photos from Never Go Back have arrived to get us properly pumped.
If you had any remaining doubt regarding Zack Snyder’s gritty and totally jacked aesthetic for the DC universe, look no further than J.K. Simmons. The Oscar-winning character actor is apparently getting totally ripped for Justice League, giving us a Commissioner Gordon unlike any we’ve seen before. If you were expecting the sensible sweater-wearing, gruff-yet-kindly law enforcement official you’ve come to know and admire, you’ll need to adjust those ideas accordingly.
Why watch just a few famous landmarks get blown up when you can pay the same amount to see twice as many (maybe more?) of our beloved manmade monuments explode? 20th Century Fox is bringing not one, but both Independence Day films to theaters on June 23, giving you a chance to test your loyalty to Jeff Goldblum with an epic double feature.
Aside from having a great title, Can You Ever Forgive Me? has been attracting some truly great talent. Enough Said director Nicole Holofcener was originally attached to helm the true-life drama with Julianne Moore set to play the leading role, and while they both dropped out, they’ve been replaced by equally exciting names: Melissa McCarthy and The Diary of a Teenage Girl director Marielle Heller.
Instead of yet another bachelor party comedy about a bunch of bros bro-ing down with booze and mostly naked women who barely have names, how about one in which Amy Schumer invites herself to the big bro party and disrupts all their bro-fun? That sounds perfect, actually. Good news: that’s the plot of a real movie that’s really going to happen!
Lin-Manuel Miranda delivered what may very well be the best Broadway musical in years with his hip-hop take on the life of Alexander Hamilton. But before Hamilton became the sort of hit that most people can only see if they’re lucky enough to win a lottery drawing, Miranda had another successful show with In the Heights, the Tony award-winning musical about a Dominican-American neighborhood in Washington Heights, New York. And it’s that musical — not Hamilton, sorry — that’s making the leap to the big screen.
It’s become impossible to talk about Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters without acknowledging the unsavory reactions from fans of the original who have declared the reboot cinema non grata (to say the least). It’s also been suggested that perhaps some words of support from the original cast members might help soothe the aggressive fanbase, that if their so-called childhood heroes give Feig’s film the stamp of approval (as if their willingness to cameo in the film wasn’t endorsement enough), maybe the anti-reboot fan contingent would settle down and come to accept a crew of female Ghostbusters. That’s not the case, as OG Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd shared his positive thoughts on Feig’s reboot, inspiring a slew of predictably angry reactions.
