Britt Hayes Biography
Director Damien Chazelle caught everyone’s attention in a big way with Whiplash, his debut feature film starring Miles Teller, which (rightfully) earned J.K. Simmons an Oscar. His next film is based on a screenplay he wrote before Whiplash, and it might very well star two of the most lovable actors alive: Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, who previously appeared together in Gangster Squad.
As most of you are aware, Tomorrowland was a concept created by Walt Disney, as a platform to showcase the innovations of tomorrow that would benefit future generations. We know that Disney himself (or a fictional version, anyway) is involved in the new Tomorrowland movie, which means there should be some fun connections for longtime fans of his theme parks and classic television specials. New featurettes explore some of those connections, along with what a place like Tomorrowland stands for.
Looks like Zack Snyder is trying to steal some of the spotlight from Disney and Lucasfilm. The director will reportedly reveal the first five seconds of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer online just an hour before Star Wars Celebration begins on Thursday. Five seconds sounds pretty lame, which is why Snyder is offering fans a chance to see the entire trailer shortly after…in a theater. Sure, why not.
After months of casting, pre-production photos and the state of Jared Leto’s hair affairs, Suicide Squad is officially, finally filming. Director David Ayer has been bucking the studio trend when it comes to superhero films, and he’s remained very open and communicative about the project on Twitter. Ayer made the official announcement today, so expect to see even more production photos over at his account soon.
On the heels of the incredibly disappointing news that Michelle MacLaren has exited the Wonder Woman film comes some exciting news from the realm of superhero women. Although we won’t officially meet Captain Marvel for a little while, Marvel Studios is already putting talent together for her upcoming solo film. The studio has their eye on Nicole Perlman and Meg LaFauve, two talented female writers to hopefully pair with a talented female director (hey Marvel, I hear Michelle MacLaren isn’t busy at the moment).
This was a possibility from the beginning, but it doesn’t make the news any less difficult to swallow (or any less infuriating): Michelle MacLaren has departed Warner Bros. and DC’s Wonder Woman movie due to “creative differences,” and it’s not the first time a female director has left a project over such differences in recent memory (remember Patty Jenkins and Thor: The Dark World?).
Now that Disney has struck a deal with IMAX for future releases of their MCU and Star Wars films, we can expect the filmmakers behind these movies to begin utilizing IMAX cameras for a more immersive experience. But while each of these films will be formatted for release in IMAX theaters, it’s been unclear which (if any) of them will actually shoot with those nifty cameras. According to a new report, Captain America: Civil War most definitely will.
The new Jurassic World clip released last week certainly caused a bit of a stir, especially when Joss Whedon took the film’s perceived sexism to task on Twitter. It wasn’t a great clip — the tone was off and the interaction between Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard was a little flat, but it’s just a small piece of a much, much larger film. Today brings new images from the upcoming movie, and a few new details via the film’s director, Colin Trevorrow, which will hopefully get you excited again if you were disappointed by that clip.
You may have noticed something intriguing in one of those Avengers: Age of Ultron trailers, and you weren’t alone. A brief glimpse at a mystery woman in the trailer inspired the internet to speculate about her involvement in the film, but you can officially stop your speculating because she won’t be in the film after all. The mystery of the Avengers: Age of Ultron mystery woman is over.
It’s hard not to exclaim “Oh what a lovely day!” every time we get to see new footage from Mad Max: Fury Road. Director George Miller’s long-awaited, highly-anticipated installment in the franchise is going to blow our minds with its extended chase sequence and intense action. It looks like those delays really paid off, as Miller devoted his time wisely to perfecting what could (and will likely) be one of the most epic action films of all time. Today brings two international TV spots, featuring a bunch of lovely, lovely new footage.
