‘Maggie’ Review: The Softer, Sadder Side of Arnold Schwarzenegger

EDIT

Lionsgate
Through most of Schwarzenegger’s film career, whatever his character’s stated profession — retired army commando, undercover FBI agent, super spy — his unspoken profession was unstoppable murderer. It was his job, and he took pride in it. Pleasure, too; killing was so effortless and uncomplicated for ’80s-era Schwarzenegger that he’d crack jokes while he did it. All that changes in Maggie, in which Schwarzenegger’s character can’t bring himself to kill a single person, one he cares deeply about: His daughter Maggie (Abigail Breslin), who’s been infected with a slow-acting zombie virus.

It's a Star Wars tradition to participate in a splashy Vanity Fair cover shoot by famed photographer Annie Liebowitz and Star Wars: Episode 7 is no different (although it almost was: rumors were that J.J. Abrams wanted to buck that tradition, but Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy was able to talk him into it). The cast and crew of The Force Awakens are on the cover of the upcoming June issue and while even more photos will be revealed, we do get our first look at Adam Driver without his Kylo Ren mask and Lupita Nyong’o’s motion-capture character!

Leslie Mann is a national treasure, who has often stolen scenes in her husband’s comedies and been the highlight of a few non-Judd Apatow film, as well. It’s kind of weird that she hasn’t gotten to headline her very own movie yet, though last year’s The Other Woman was about as close as we got. But now Mann will finally have a movie to call her own, courtesy of the guys who brought you The Hangover. Wait, don’t worry — Judd Apatow is producing it, so that’s a good sign.

If you head on over to iTunes to purchase and download Fifty Shades of Grey, you’ll receive an extra gift: an alternate ending to the film, which originally ended somewhat abruptly on a down note. The new ending isn’t so much an alternate version as it is an additional one, which is a bit more hopeful and teases the reunion of Anastasia and Christian in the sequel.

One of Robin Williams’ final projects was lending his voice to the comedy Absolutely Anything, in which Simon Pegg is granted immense power to do, well, anything in the world, thanks to some scheming aliens.

EDIT

Marvel
There’s a bizarre narrative floating around the internet: Avengers: Age of Ultron is already a disappointment because it didn’t open higher than The Avengers in its first weekend. This seems to be ignoring the fact that The Avengers had the biggest opening of all time and Avengers: Age of Ultron now has the second biggest opening of all time, which is nothing to scoff at. Sure, the sequel may not match the numbers of the first movie in the end, but it’s already well on the way to becoming one of the biggest movies of the year. And of all time.
