Taissa Farmiga joins The Conjuring spinoff The Nun

4 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Ugh! There's something about undead religious figures that unnerves me right to my core. Be it a bloodstained clergymen, a pale faced, over-tired-looking nun, or a grouping of forlorn disciples from the pages of The Bible, I want nothing to do with it. That being said, New Line seems to take no issue with this manner of imagery seeing as they've announced that Taissa Farmiga will step... Read More »

12 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jacqueline Bisset has been cast in the lead role in the family drama “Journey to Miyakojima,” which will begin filming in Japan in October.

French helmer Slony Sow is directing from his own script. Paul Hoppe is the producer and Nick Kambayashi is executive producing. Aun Entertainment and Licri are the production companies.

Bisset will play a quietly ailing family matriarch and NBA team owner who is hoping to reunite her shattered family at a serene island off the coast of Okinawa, thousands of miles away from home.

The cast includes Akira Emoto, Eriko Takeda, and Mari Natsuki.

Bisset stars in “L’Amant Double,” a Palme d’Or contender at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival, »

The kid's got a nice suit. 

On Monday, Marvel shared a fun look at the Stark tech that makes up the new Spider-Man suit, featured in the first standalone film for the Tom Holland incarnation. 

Holland's Spidey got his new suit in Captain America: Civil War, but there are some cool gadgets that will be highlighted in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Most of the new tech was pretty obvious from the trailer, but it is still interesting to either get confirmation or a tad bit more info. 

First, the suit automatically forms to the wearer's body, which is reminiscent of Marty's jacket in Back to »

Film Review: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’

19 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The word “Marvel,” as in comic books or movie studios, has become a foundational term of our culture. Yet you could sit through almost every one of today’s comic-book movies and not find a whole lot to marvel at. That’s where “Guardians of the Galaxy” came in. In an era of overstuffed, taped-together blockbusters, it was supremely funny, exciting, and well-made — a rock ‘n’ roll space opera, spectacular yet lithe, without a stray shot or sequence out of place, and with a wildly caustic yet devotional interplay among its motley crew of renegades that recalled the original 1977 “Star Wars” (obviously its chief influence). The film wielded the machinery of big-budget franchise filmmaking and trumped it at the same time. So the question of what “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” can do for an encore isn’t really, “Can it top the first film?” It’s more like, »

2 hours ago | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Bigger in every way than the surprise 2014 blockbuster that brought this new franchise to the screen for the first time, the inevitable sequel Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 still has the best and most entertaining set of characters of any Marvel comic book movie — even if at times it seems bigger isn’t necessarily better. As I say in my video review above, the special effects, booming sound, and CGI of it all at times threatens to overtake the genuine character… »

Faye Dunaway Felt ‘Very Guilty’ About Best Picture Mistake at the Oscars

2 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Faye Dunaway is finally speaking out about her role in #EnvelopeGate, two months after the now-infamous 89th Academy Awards best picture gaffe.

The Oscar-winning “Network” actress sat down with anchor Lester Holt on “NBC Nightly News” Monday, recounting the moments leading up to the mistake.

Dunaway and co-presenter Warren Beatty were responsible for announcing the night’s final award when she accidentally called out “La La Land” instead of “Moonlight.”

“[Beatty] took the card out, and he didn’t say anything. He paused, he looked over me, off-stage, he looked around, and I finally said, ‘You’re impossible.’ I thought he was joking! A dramatic pause.”

The confusion was cleared up moments later when the “La La Land” producers were informed they had lost, prompting both movies’ casts and crews to awkwardly crowd the stage.
