Britt Hayes Biography
Disclaimer: It's best to go into Karyn Kusama's The Invitation completely blind, if possible, in order to get the most out of this exquisitely unnerving thriller. But if you absolutely, positively must watch a trailer before you commit to seeing the film, then this is a pretty great preview of what's in store.
To be fair, that's a pretty believable headline. If Tilda Swinton started a glam rock band tomorrow, she'd be the biggest music star on the planet in a matter of seconds. That's sort of the space she occupies in the trailer for A Bigger Splash, which reunites her with the director of I Am Love for a new dramedy that features Swinton basically playing a female version of David Bowie, by the looks of it.
A recent preview of the Ghostbusters LEGO set revealed not only the trusty ol’ Ecto-1, but an interesting new vehicle — the Ecto-2. We weren’t sure if the motorcycle would be making an appearance in the film, or if it was simply a fun bonus for the toy set. Sony has released a new image of the real Ecto-2 from the set of Paul Feig’s upcoming film, confirming that the new vehicle is indeed very much real.
Production has officially begun on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in Atlanta, and James Gunn has shared a new set photo to kick things off. That photo features a new logo for the upcoming sequel, which doesn’t hit theaters until next year. And while we’ve been very patiently waiting for casting announcements, Gunn assures fans that we’ll get the full scoop next week.
Hardcore Henry premiered at TIFF last fall under the title Hardcore, and swiftly inspired a bidding war over distribution rights for the innovative first-person POV action flick. Directed by Ilya Naishuller and executive-produced by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted), Hardcore takes the concept of first-person shooter video games and transforms it into one relentless, action-packed and gnarly film that’s sure to draw comparisons to RoboCop.
Alex Garland’s follow-up to Ex Machina just keeps getting better and better with each new casting addition. The female-centric cast of Annihilation already includes Natalie Portman, Gina Rodriguez and Tessa Thompson, all on board for Garland’s next sci-fi project. And it appears they may have some very cool new company, as The Hateful Eight star Jennifer Jason Leigh is in talks to join them.
Does Bruce Wayne know any other emotions besides brooding, or any other facial expressions besides “righteous scowl”? This is perhaps one of the greatest unanswered questions of the modern, grittier era of Batman. And judging by this new photo from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the answer appears to be: nope.
An Alien prequel starring Danny McBride? This could seriously be the movie we never knew we always wanted. In a bit of news that is equal parts surprising and kind of awesome, the former Eastbound and Down star and master of obnoxious humor is in talks to join Alien: Covenant, which seems to indicate that Ridley Scott may very well indeed be a genius. An evil genius, but a genius.
Back in 2014, Sony announced plans to bring Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog to the big screen with a CGI / live-action hybrid adventure, and then…things got quiet. And they stayed quiet. Until now. Sega is threatening us with an actual, honest-to-goodness release date for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, which will allegedly roll into theaters in 2018.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is set to make its debut on London’s West End this summer, offering a new sequel of sorts in the franchise, but one that will only be performed as a play. However, there’s some good news for all the devoted Harry Potter fans who won’t be able to attend the stage production: the script for the play will be published as a book in July — July 31, to be precise, which just happens to be one Mr. Potter’s birthday.
