While DC assembles its team for the 'Justice League' movie for a 2015 release, Marvel is busy doing the same. Aside from 'The Avengers 2' and the even more upcoming 'Iron Man 3,' 'Thor 2' and 'Captain America 2' flicks, Marvel Studios is busy trying to fill the cast of their next superhero movie 'Guardians of the Galaxy.'
It was discovered only a few weeks ago that a handful of actors were being considered for the lead role of Peter Quill, but it looks like we might be seeing a familiar face getting the gig as Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been thrown into the casting pool.
You probably first noticed Joseph Gordon-Levitt on the TV series '3rd Rock from the Sun' or in '10 Things I Hate About You,' but in today's Way Back When we go even further back to look at what the star of 'Lincoln' and 'The Dark Knight Rises' was up to before you knew his face.
'Justice League' is coming out in 2015, which is already going to be one of the biggest summers for event films (between it, 'The Avengers 2' and 'Star Wars Episode 7'), but other than Henry Cavill rumored to appear as Superman none of the other cast has been fleshed out. The latest hot rumor is that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will play Batman, the Dark Knight himself.
If you're still in the political mood after last night, we have a few presidential treats for you in the form of three clips from Steven Speilberg's 'Lincoln.' Steven Spielberg's latest is opening in limited release this week, but you can preview Daniel Day-Lewis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones' acting chops right now!
Wanna see the early concept trailer that Rian Johnson used to pitch the studio on 'Looper'? And are you curious about the films that inspired the look of the 'Looper' universe? If you answered "obviously" to either of these questions, you are totally good enough to keep reading.
After all this time thinking that Rian Johnson's 'Looper' was an original concept, it turns out we were wrong. The sci-fi film featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt tasked with killing his future self, played by Bruce Willis, has been done before...and with the same actors. In fact, footage has been posted to YouTube that proves these two high-profile actors teamed up years ago and starred in a film with the exact same concept as 'Looper.'
The success of Rian Johnson’s ‘Looper’ is great news for fans of wholly original movies, because the Sony-distributed, time travel-based hit is not based on a novel or comic book or toy or anything else, and hopefully it is a harbinger of things to come. But that originality may spawn unoriginality as the success of the film may dictate a 'Looper 2.' Should there be a 'Looper 2?' Could there be a 'Looper 2?' We investigate.
Sony has been doing a bang-up job building awareness for Rian Johnson’s ‘Looper,’ which finally opens in theaters on Friday, September 28 after what feels like months of anticipation. Johnson and his team stopped at WonderCon, Comic-Con and helped open this year’s Toronto International Film Festival with his time-bending thriller. But you really haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen the new animated trailer for the film. Check it out below.
If there's some kind of guide for for SNL hosts, they should let Joseph Gordon-Levitt write a chapter. Up for seemingly anything and lacking even a single ounce of shame, he brought a level of commitment to last night's episode that shown through even the weakest sketches. One of his shining moments was his role in a commercial parody where he played the son of Dos Equis' spokesman "The Most Interesting Man in the World."
Whether or not you're still following 'Saturday Night Live' after all these years, it's hard to deny that Seth MacFarlane did a pretty bang-up job bringing the long-running sketch comedy show into its 38th season, parodying everything from "Gangnam Style" to Clint Eastwood, and even introducing its new Barack Obama. With 'Looper's' Joseph Gordon-Levitt ready to take the reigns for this Saturday night with Mumford & Sons as the musical guest, do the new promos show JGL up to the task?
