‘Doctor Strange’ Review: Marvel’s Familiar Formula With Some Really Cool Visuals

The most common knock against Marvel’s cinematic universe: All their movies look the same. In a mega-franchise spanning 14 films and counting, that look can get pretty stale. For the most part, these movies about bravery are pretty timid when it comes to visual storytelling.

‘Deadpool’ Director Tim Miller Leaves ‘Deadpool 2’

One of the biggest Hollywood success stories of the past few years was Deadpool, the R-rated superhero movie from 20th Century Fox. From dead in the water to surprise box office smash, Deadpool became a perfect parable for young filmmakers who have a story to tell and won’t let failure stand in the way of getting their movie made. Unfortunately, though, life doesn’t always adhere to clean narratives. Despite all the setbacks that Deadpool director Tim Miller faced along the way, it turns out there was only one thing that could cause him to throw in the towel: success.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Star on Rey’s Parents: ‘We Will See in a Year’

While Star Wars: The Force Awakens left us with plenty of unanswered questions, perhaps no question looms as big over the franchise as the lineage of Daisy Ridley’s Rey. Ever since the film was released, fan theories have run wild with the questions of why Rey was abandoned by her parents and how she may have come by her force sensitivity. Is she the daughter of Obi-Wan Kenobi? Is she the daughter of Luke Skywalker? What is the significance of that flashback sequence? Inquiring minds want to know.

Director Chad Stahelski on ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ and the Curse of the Sequel

The much-anticipated follow-up to Keanu Reeves’ action-packed John Wick, John Wick: Chapter 2 has some big shoes to fill. The first John Wick was a welcome surprise: an action-thriller with some masterful stuntwork and gun handling directed by an actual stuntman, about a former assassin who goes on a killing rampage to avenge his dog was a delicious stew of an action movie. The sequel picks up just a short time after the first leaves off, and we see Wick heading to Rome and ready to take out some more bad guys. Although sequels are always chancy prospects, director Chad Stahelski is optimistic about the next chapter living up to the first.

Leonardo DiCaprio Will Play Sam Phillips, Introduce the World to Rock and Roll

The one thing Hollywood loves more than biopics is literary adaptations, and when the two combine, it’s even better. Paramount recently acquired the rights to the book Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock ‘N’ Roll by Peter Guralnick, about the producer who launched the careers of artists like Elvis Presley, Ike Turner, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Johnny Cash. You might’ve heard of them. And who better than Leonardo DiCaprio himself to play the titular producer?

Daisy Ridley Also Thought That ‘The Force Awakens’ Toy Controversy Was Wack

Back when The Force Awakens was just about to come out, the inevitable Star Wars merch hit toy shelves all over the country. But while Kylo Ren and ex-Storm Trooper Finn figures were out in full force, Daisy Ridley’s character Rey, the main character of the movie, was absent. Disney blamed concerns that a “girl toy” wouldn’t sell as well with boy audiences, but after backlash, the company decided to include Rey in their second wave of merchandising. And, lo and behold, Rey toys sold even better than any other (with the exception, maybe, of BB-8). This controversy didn’t escape Ridley’s attention, and she’s going to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Jennifer Lawrence to Star in Ron Howard’s Zelda Fitzgerald Biopic

Novels like The Great Gatsby and The Beautiful and Damned cemented F. Scott Fitzgerald’s status as a literary icon, but some bookish types (myself included) would argue that his wife, Zelda, was the more talented of the pair. Her creative contributions have certainly been less valued in comparison to her husband, but thanks to Ron Howard, she’s finally getting the biopic she deserves (or one would hope), with Jennifer Lawrence set to play the title role in Zelda.

Zack Synder Shares a New Photo of Wonder Woman in ‘Justice League’

It’s been an amazing year for Wonder Woman fans. Following Gal Gadot‘s on-screen debut as Diana Prince in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the trailers for her solo movie, and confirmation of the the character’s bisexuality, Wonder Woman also turned 75th anniversary this week. To celebrate her long history on the page and screen, United Nations named Wonder Woman an Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls under their new global gender advocacy program. So while it’s been a bad week for women in real-life thanks to Wednesday night’s American Horror Story: The Presidential Debates, at the very least, we have a female superhero making strides.
