Britt Hayes Biography
Back in March, Dylan O’Brien was severely injured on the set of Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the third installment in the YA franchise. At the time, 20h Century Fox and director Wes Ball seemed optimistic that production would resume by early May, but according to a new report, O’Brien’s injuries are more serious than previously thought, as filming has been indefinitely delayed while the actor recovers.
Video game adaptations are traditionally…not good. That may change when Assassin’s Creed arrives in theaters this December, but there’s still a healthy amount of cynicism when another adaptation is announced. The latest title hoping to make the transition from your living room to the big screen is Shinobi, Sega’s long-running, ninja-centric video game series.
Yet another director has parted ways with Warner Bros. due to good ol' "creative differences." Following Michelle MacLaren's departure from Wonder Woman, Seth Grahame-Smith has left The Flash solo movie, which is set to star Ezra Miller as Barry Allen. The film was to be the author and screenwriter's directorial debut, and although he's no longer at the helm, The Flash will still reportedly use his screenplay.
Would you like to watch 38 seconds of Black Panther brawling with Bucky Barnes on a rooftop in Captain America: Civil War? Of course you would. And thanks to the video above, you can. Marvel has released a new clip from their upcoming film, in which the two heroes engage in a riveting fight, and Chadwick Boseman shows off some seriously slick moves.
Okay, before you get too excited, you should know that while these are most definitely new photos from the set of Star Wars: Episode 8, they don’t reveal anything mind-blowing. They’re just a couple of great photos shared by Rian Johnson, featuring a familiar piece of aircraft, a console and a mysterious First Order operative. The director released the photos to celebrate the halfway point in production, which means we’re that much closer to learning more about the upcoming sequel.
Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s Preacher is one of those tricky properties to properly adapt. Remain too faithful and you run the risk of creating a laughably absurd, tonally catastrophic mess. Venture too far away from the source material and you may alienate the very fan base you wish to please. Thankfully, producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and showrunner Sam Catlin have hit that rare sweet spot, and though the pilot episode of AMC’s Preacher does recalibrate some of Ennis and Dillon’s basic plotting and setups, the essential spirit and characters of the graphic novel remain delightfully the same.
Ruth Negga appears opposite Dominic Cooper in this summer’s Warcraft, but before then, you can see the pair’s chemistry at work in Preacher, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s new AMC series based on Garth Ennis’ classic graphic novels. We had a chance to speak with Negga about her role as the impossibly charming Tulip O’Hare, the joys of playing such a complex character, and what we can expect from the series following its May 1 premiere.
The Weinstein Company sure did pick a clever time to release the trailer for Tulip Fever, capitalizing on today’s news of Alicia Vikander’s casting as Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider reboot. The Oscar-winning actress stars in the studio’s seductive new period drama opposite Christoph Waltz and Dane DeHaan, and judging by the trailer, it looks like she’s playing a 17th century Dutch version of F—, Marry, Kill.
Not only did Harley Quinn become an instant fan favorite following her debut on Batman: The Animated Series, but she quickly became an iconic villain, and it wasn’t long before she transitioned to the pages of DC Comics. While most fans agree that Margot Robbie is the perfect choice for the role in Suicide Squad, there’s been much less agreement over her wardrobe — or lack thereof — in David Ayer’s upcoming film. Robbie herself has officially chimed in, offering her thoughts on Harley’s controversial fashion choices.
The First Omen isn’t the greatest title — it’s as if it was concocted by an obnoxious internet commenter who only speaks in all-caps. There’s something insistent and sort of presumptuous about “First” in that title, and while yet another film — a prequel, no less — based on iconic horror classic The Omen is enough to trigger an eye roll, there’s reason to give this one the benefit of the doubt.
