Don’t Worry, ‘Ghostbusters’ Star Melissa McCarthy Is Also Confused by That Trailer

by Britt Hayes 6 hours ago
Director Paul Feig has maintained that his new Ghostbusters movie isn’t a sequel or a remake, but a reboot. Basically, it ignores the fictional events and characters depicted in Ivan Reitman’s classic 1984 film — which makes the first trailer for Feig’s movie a bit confusing. If you count yourself among those who were baffled by the trailer, then you can rest easy with the knowledge that someone who is actually in the movie is also confused. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have any answers for you.

Guillermo del Toro’s New Film Might Have a Title, a Merman and a Richard Jenkins

by Britt Hayes 7 hours ago
Despite reports on the various projects he’s had brewing for some time, Guillermo del Toro remained predictably unpredictable when he recently decided to move forward on a project that no one knew much about. We do know it’s a Cold War romance with a fantasy element, and we know it stars Sally Hawkins and Octavia Spencer — and if this new report is to be believed, then we may also know a few more details, including a new cast member and a title.

Marvel Fans Still Want That Black Widow Solo Movie, According to New Poll

by Britt Hayes 8 hours ago
Of the original Avengers cast, only Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow haven’t starred in their own solo movies. While audiences only really warmed up to Hawkeye thanks to his arc in Age of Ultron, fans have been enamored with Black Widow since she made her debut in the otherwise-underwhelming Iron Man 2. There’s been talk off and on over the last few years about a Black Widow solo movie, and just in case the people in suits over at Marvel are wondering: yes, audiences still very much want to see it.

Universal Sets Mystery Monster Movie Reboot For 2019 Release

by Britt Hayes 8 hours ago
Over the last couple of years, we’ve heard a lot about Universal’s plans for a new shared universe of movies based on their classic monsters, and yet only one of those films — The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise — is currently in production. The studio has plans for a few more horror reboots from the creative team of Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan, and it looks like one of those movies has a release date — but which one?

‘Empress’ Movie in the Works Based on ‘Kingsman’ Author’s Comic Book Series

by Britt Hayes 9 hours ago
Mark Millar’s comic books have inspired some mixed reactions among fans and critics, but the author’s works have also inspired some entertaining films, including last year’s Kingsman: The Secret Service and the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. Millar has a handful of projects in development based on his books, and you can add another to the pile, as his fantasy series Empress is the latest set to make the jump from page to screen.

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2’ Trailer: Out of the Shadows, Into the Shadows of a Movie Theater

by Matt Singer 14 hours ago
I like that this video explains who the Ninja Turtles are, for the benefit of those people who have been living in a cave (or maybe a sewer) since the late 1980s and have somehow avoided one of the six previous movies, five television shows, hundreds of toys, comics, and video games about these characters. “Oh Donatello is the purple one, ohhhhhh. For the last 30 years, I thought that was Raphael! My bad.”

What Marvel Got Right About Spider-Man That His Solo Movies Got Wrong

by Matt Singer 16 hours ago
Oh what a different 18 months makes. A year ago, last fall Spider-Man fans were facing an entire universe of Spidey movies they didn’t particularly want; a third Amazing Spider-Man about the continuing and not-particularly-exciting adventures of Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker, plus spinoff movies for Venom and the Sinister Six. Things got so bad for Spider-Man that when rumors began circulating that Sony was considering an Aunt May movie, Sony had to publicly dismiss those rumors as “silly” with “no validity whatsoever” because people thought that the company that made Amazing Spider-Man 2 might actually be dumb enough to make an Aunt May movie.

Harriet Tubman Biopic ‘Harriet’ Headed to Theaters

H.B. Lindsley
Abolitionist, humanitarian, and regular fourth-grade history report subject Harriet Tubman may very well be the most significant black woman to have ever lived. She ferried what scholars estimate to be over seventy runaway slaves to freedom through her Underground Railroad network of sanctuary, and to this day continues to provide inspiration to anyone struggling to do the right thing in a status quo that enforces injustice. Having most recently unseated former president and noted genocidal maniac Andrew Jackson as the face of the $20 bill, Harriet Tubman may be the closest thing U.S. history has to an actual superhero.
