Britt Hayes Biography
Jake Gyllenhaal’s big break came in 2001, when he appeared in Bubble Boy and Donnie Darko. The actor had a few small roles in his childhood (see: City Slickers), but according to Gyllenhaal, he might have hit the mainstream even sooner — if only his parents had allowed him to do so.
While it’s not a new set of official stills from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the opposing duo appear on the cover of Empire magazine, giving us a fresh look at the heroes and their costumes from Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero showdown. As you might expect, Ben Affleck’s Batman looks quite grumpy, while Henry Cavill’s Superman looks positively optimistic and ready to save the world — or defend himself against it.
It’s hard to choose just one standout actor on HBO’s Veep, since every cast member is perfectly, funny-bone-breakingly hilarious. And now two of those incredibly funny people are stepping out to make what will likely be an incredibly funny movie together. Timothy Simons (Jonah, aka Jonad) and Matt Walsh are joining forces to develop a new comedy…about college football.
August is the last month of summer, which means you’re probably looking forward to bigger releases like Fantastic Four — but don’t let Ricki and the Flash escape your notice. The new film from director Jonathan Demme and Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody features Meryl Streep in the role of a rock goddess who left her family behind to pursue her dreams. As seen in the new clip above, yes, Queen Meryl does indeed really sing and play the guitar.
At the midseason mark, Hannibal has a moment of readjustment, switching gears almost effortlessly to transition into the future — three years down the line, and Will Graham is experiencing his Godfather moment. Just when he thought he was out, Jack Crawford pulls him back in to investigate the Tooth Fairy, a name our new killer despises, as “The Great Red Dragon” is more to his demented liking.
A few weeks ago, we heard that Rachel McAdams was in talks with Marvel for a leading role in Doctor Strange opposite Benedict Cumberbatch. Since then, all’s been quiet on the Sorcerer Supreme front, with no official confirmation or other casting news. But today brings a small update, in the form of an interview with McAdams, who confirms that she is in talks with Marvel, though it’s still a bit early.
With more and more big budget films relying heavily on CG, studios have been taking care to release behind-the-scenes featurettes and interviews promoting real locations and sets. A recent promo for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation focused on Tom Cruise performing his own dangerous stunts, while details on Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu’s The Revenant reveal a film that was shot as naturally and realistically (and excruciating for some) as possible. In a similar vein, a new promo for Everest highlights the intense conditions endured by the cast and crew on set.
One of the things that makes watching superhero films so fun is the incredible fiction involved. These films take scientific concepts beyond what’s possible, but both comic books and their big screen counterparts tend to find inspiration in real science. A new set of Fantastic Four featurettes compares the fantastical science fiction of the film with science fact, with the help of renowned theoretical physicist Michio Kaku.
Michael B. Jordan is undeniably one of our most engaging rising stars, proving the sheer force of his talent with his role in Fruitvale Station (and lest we forget, his earlier role on Friday Night Lights). Jordan has two upcoming high profile roles with Fantastic Four and Creed, but his next project will take him back to a more intimate environment as he teams with the director of the acclaimed indie Short Term 12 for Just Mercy.
We previously learned that neither Patrick Stewart nor Ian McKellen will be appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse, as the new sequel focuses more on the younger cast. But Bryan Singer’s latest photo from the set may be giving fans a glimmer of hope, with Stewart paying the production a little visit.
