While he’s not donning the vibranium suit and saving the world as Black Panther, Chadwick Boseman has been moonlighting as Thurgood Marshall, the first-ever black Supreme Court Justice who rose to fame when he took on one of the cases that defined the Civil Rights Movement.
Star-on-the-rise Chadwick Boseman is making all the right moves. He came to prominence on the back of his Black Panther role first glimpsed in the recent Captain America: Civil War, and will square off against an emo Michael B. Jordan in this February’s solo film. But an actor’s only as good as the Serious Movie they use their blockbuster clout to get made, and for Chadwick Boseman (how great is that name? I want to only ever write it in full), that movie is going to be the Thurgood Marshall biopic Marshall. And now we can get an impression as to how this pivot from Civil War to Civil Rights is working out for Chadwick Boseman, as a trailer has surfaced online.
Hollywood has finally found someone to compete with Nazis for the title of ultimate movie villains: Oil executives. In Deepwater Horizon, the blue-collar crew of an off-shore rig battles malfunctioning equipment, an unpredictable ocean, pipe blow outs, explosions, and fires. But all those dangers seem to pale in comparison to the threat posed by a bunch of starchy white men. In their uniform of blue button-down shirts and khaki pants, they’re the walking embodiment of pure, unadulterated greed.
There’s no silence quieter than the one in a movie theater during an bad comedy. At times during Mother’s Day, director Garry Marshall’s newest debasement of a beloved holiday, a hush fell over the theater to rival the quietude at a Benedictine monastery. When the laughter finally came, it’s always at the movie’s expense. This disaster is less deliberately funny than the last movie titled Mother’s Day, and that was a violent horror film.
Welp, if the movies weren’t going to take Mel Gibson back, you could bet he’d try the TV gold rush eventually, though perhaps not literally. Gibson will star in and produce a new series alongside Kurt Russell and Kate Hudson, following the 1849 Gold Rush of The Barbary Coast.
Having already planted his flag of squeaky-clean ethnically homogeneous courtship on New Year’s Eve with New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day with Valentine’s Day, and America’s most tragic hour with 9/11 Remembrance Day, Garry Marshall will expand his Holiday Cinematic Universe with Mother’s Day this spring...
The 15th anniversary of Almost Famous is approaching, and to celebrate, director Cameron Crowe has been sharing some rare behind the scenes photos and artwork from his acclaimed semi-autobiographical drama. It’s hard to believe it’s been 15 years since the world was introduced to Stillwater, the Enemy, and the manic pixie stylings of Kate Hudson. But yes, you’re older now. Don’t be so shocked.
It’s not unusual for an animated film to replace members of its voice cast before release — Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur notably did this when it underwent a creative revamp, replacing pretty much all of its actors to make sure the casting was more accurate to the newer vision. Kung Fu Panda 3 hasn’t undergone any huge changes, though it is replacing at least one of its cast members prior to release.
