Britt Hayes Biography
Not long after the initial rumor was reported, it was confirmed that Robert Downey Jr. will be making an appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming — returning Sony’s favor following Tom Holland’s MCU debut as the web-slinger in Captain America: Civil War. Since then, we’ve been wondering if any other Marvel characters would crossover to the Spidey reboot, and according to Holland, there’s at least one more hero he wants to see in his upcoming solo film.
It might be okay if Laika just continues to release trailers for Kubo and the Two Strings. The studio’s latest stop-motion adventure looks to be their most beautiful, immersive and epic story yet, and it’s hard to complain about so many trailers when each one is so darn pretty. Note to Laika: Either put this movie in theaters, like, tomorrow, or please continue to release a new trailer for it every day until August.
It’s a touching, familiar scenario: a young person coping with a grave illness has their wish granted and gets to meet the actors who play their favorite comic book heroes on the big screen. Sometimes, they get to see a new movie before anyone else, and while our hearts are warmed by the photos and stories about it, we tend to forget why they were treated to a special private screening of The Force Awakens or, in this case, Deadpool. Ryan Reynolds has written an incredibly moving tribute to the memory of his friend, 13-year-old Connor McGrath, a Deadpool fan who has sadly lost his battle with cancer.
A live-action film based on the Monsterpocalypse board game has been in various stages of development for several years, previously delayed due to similarities with Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim. But the adaptation of the hit robots vs. monsters game is once again picking up steam, with Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez attached to helm what has become the source of a fierce bidding war among major studios
Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot won’t be the only Ghostbusters movie hitting theaters this summer. If you’re itching to revisit Ivan Reitman’s 1984 comedy classic, then you might want to wait until June, when the original Ghostbusters returns to the big screen. The special re-release honors both the 32nd anniversary (sure, why not) of the film, as well as the release of Feig’s reboot, starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.
It’s difficult to ignore rumors when they’re so consistent — and persistent. Following the negative critical response to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which didn’t perform as well as Warner Bros. expected at the box office, reports have surfaced that there’s some turmoil at the studio regarding the future of the Justice League franchise. Last night, news broke that Seth Grahame-Smith exited The Flash solo movie over “creative differences,” and a subsequent rumor seems to support the idea that WB’s DC plans aren’t going very smoothly.
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.
