Marvel Is Aiming for Half of All Future McU Movies to Be Directed by Women

Marvel Studios' success has been unparalleled and unprecedented, but among the chief complaints among many fans for years was the lack of diversity, both in ethnic heroes and female heroes as well. Marvel has most definitely addressed both issues with the blockbuster hit Black Panther, and the upcoming Captain Marvel, but Victoria Alonso, Marvel's executive VP of physical production, hopes to see a day where half of the McU slate is directed by women.

Before joining Marvel in 2006, Victoria Alonso worked in the male-dominated world of visual effects, working on films such as The 6th Day, Cats and Dogs, Darkness Falls, The Core, Big Fish, Fifty First Dates and Kingdom of Heaven. She joined Marvel as the chief of visual effects, serving as both a producer and a visual effects producer on the first McU movie, Iron Man, while also producing the rest of Marvel's early movies before being

Spooky Teaser For Stranger Things Season 2 Creeps Online Ahead Of Final Trailer

Darkness falls upon the land; the midnight hour is close at hand.”

On the eve of Friday the 13th, Netflix has conjured up a suitably spooky teaser for Stranger Things season 2, with the full and indeed final trailer expected online sometime tomorrow.

Yes, while the Netflix original series began life as a summer sleeper hit, co-creators Matt and Ross Duffer have embraced the show’s horror elements with arms wide open, resulting in an expanded instalment that will seemingly ramp up the scare factor on October 27th.

Behind the scenes, Netflix subscribers can expect a number of fresh faces to take up residence in Hawkins, Indiana, including Sadie Sink, Dacre Montgomery Paul Reiser, Chelsea Talmadge and Brett Gelman as Murray Bauman, a conspiracy nut who will surely cause a headache or three for Chief Jim Hopper. We also learned recently that the Powers That Be have tweaked the episode titles ever so slightly.

Will Byers Is Cooped Up In Hospital Once Again In All-New Pic For Stranger Things Season 2

Spare a thought for Will Byers of Hawkins, Indiana.

Despite spending much of Stranger Things season 1 trapped in a nightmarish reality known as the Upside Down, it looks like the show’s sophomore instalment will shove Noah Schnapp’s pint-sized protagonist out of the frying pan and into the freezer come October 27th.

Yes, despite getting rid of the so-called Demogorgon and restoring peace and balance to Hawkins – at the expense of Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven…for now – Stranger Things season 2 will unleash a whole new wave of nasties, including a tendrilled sky-monster (Shadow Monster), upon the hapless folks of Indiana. That “singular threat” is spreading, it seems, so expect the show’s second season to boast a bigger sense of scale and scope than its precursor.

Not only will it stretch for nine episodes in total, but there’s also the new cast members to take into account,

‘Better Call Saul’: Why That Blockbuster Video Scene Was Important, But Also a ‘Nail-Biter’ to Make

‘Better Call Saul’: Why That Blockbuster Video Scene Was Important, But Also a ‘Nail-Biter’ to Make
[Editor’s Note: Mild spoilers for Season 3, Episode 10, “Lantern” follow.]

It’s at times easy to forget that “Better Call Saul” is a period piece, if only because its 2002-2003 setting isn’t always noticeably distinguishable from the present day. But then every once in a while, creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould slap us in the face with a reminder that this show is happening in the past. It can be as simple as a trip to a video store — but not just any video store.

It’s something we all accepted as routine, just 15 years ago: Want to watch a movie? Go to Blockbuster Video. So in the Season 3 finale, “Lantern,” Kim (Rhea Seehorn) asks her assistant Francesca (Tina Parker) for a ride to what was once the dominant source for Americans in search of movie rentals, and we then get to see her browse the aisles in search of the perfect comfort viewing, following her near-fatal car accident the episode prior.

Executive producer Gennifer Hutchison, who wrote the season finale, told IndieWire that the decision to have Kim visit a video store came in the writers’ room, as the team discussed what Kim might possibly do after deciding to relax following her accident. “I just really loved the idea of her renting a bunch of videos and sitting around watching movies and eating junk food. Just because it’s something I relate to, it’s something I like to do when I destress. And I feel like it’s not something you see a lot of on TV and in movies,” she said.

And as a result, Gould — who directed the finale — got very excited about the idea of Kim going to not just any video store, but Blockbuster in particular. However, don’t think that this was an easy choice for the show — because according to production designer Michael Novotny, “it was a total nail-biter.”

Novotny told IndieWire that as soon as he received word that “Saul” wanted to recreate a Blockbuster, he got his team to work — specifically, the graphics department. “I can always do a set. A set’s the easy part. The hard part is the graphics and all of the art work you’re going to turn out,” he said.

But that process started before the show had actual permission to recreate a Blockbuster. “We started to build it without approval. That’s part of the nail-biting process,” he said. “It wasn’t until the day before we shot it that we got approval.”

This is because, as anyone who works in production might tell you, trying to depict a real brand on screen can be an incredibly difficult task. And the “Saul” team wanted to actually use Blockbuster iconography, which isn’t the easiest thing given that it’s a brand name you haven’t probably seen in the wild in years.

Blockbuster went bankrupt in 2010, and “roughly a dozen” stores currently exist today. Thus, the set was built on one of the show’s Albuquerque soundstages, and in fact, a great deal of what was on screen was made from scratch by the “Saul” production team, including the big Blockbuster sign hanging in the wall and the period-accurate movie covers.

One thing they were able to buy: the shelving units came thanks to an ironic stroke of luck and an Albuquerque video store that was going out of business. The production was thus able to buy those displays, which Novotny made sure were shortened so that, as they shot the scene, Kim and Francesca could be seen walking through the aisles. That framing was based on Gould’s storyboards, which were altered slightly during the production process, but otherwise didn’t require any major additional construction.

But really, here’s what people care about — the movies that are being considered, as Kim prepares for an epic binge in the pre-Netflix days. None of the titles are fake, and Novotny did work carefully with his team to carefully curate the movies that appeared on screen during the scene, all of which were drawn from a list provided by Peter Gould and the writers. Here are just some of the ones we happened to spot while freeze-framing:

“A Knight’s Tale” “Lawrence of Arabia” (the 40th anniversary special edition) “Love Liza” “The Mothman Prophecies” “Punch-Drunk Love” A Richard Pryor stand-up special “Beverly Hills Ninja” “The Cheap Detective” “Hanky Panky” “Blue Thunder” “American Sledge” “Darkness Falls” “Night of the Living Dead

They’re all movies that feel appropriate to the era at least within a year or two or as classics, though unfortunately a quick Internet search can reveal whether a film in question would have been available on DVD in the year 2003. Perhaps the most glaring oversight is the appearance of Tim Burton’s “Big Fish,” which was released in theaters December 10, 2003 and made available on DVD April 27, 2004 — something Hutchison’s husband (who actually worked at Blockbuster in the past) noticed while watching the final product. “We don’t always get it right,” she admitted.

Novotny acknowledged the “Big Fish” error, but he was relatively zen about it, given the intense pressure of making the scene happen in the first place. “It really was a down to the wire thing,” he said. “If that’s as much as I’m wrong… I’m sad to hear that but at the same time I’m happy that it went as good as it did.”

Update: On Twitter, Gould offered a little clarity as to why “Big Fish” might have time traveled back a year:

And that #BigFish they mention? Could be a shoutout to my former student @johnaugust… #YesYouReadThatRight

Peter Gould (@petergould) June 23, 2017

Hutchison couldn’t remember every one of the 10 films Kim officially rented, though such a list was made during production. Beyond “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “Monty Python,” she said the rest were mostly legal dramas, though she did make sure to include the Luc Besson sci-fi romp “The Fifth Element.” “That was one for some reason I was really stuck on making sure was in her stack,” Hutchison said.

While hardly the most memorable scene of the finale, it still sticks in the mind because of how it triggers memories of an experience we’ve largely lost, traded in for the convenience of Netflix.

“I like the idea of physically walking around and choosing movies,” Hutchison said. “There is something about actually going into a store, having everything broken down by genre. Sometimes with the streaming services it’s a little overwhelming, but having that physical space… I don’t know. It was like a ritual.”

And depicting that ritual was just more proof that “Better Call Saul” will always find a way to surprise us with the seemingly mundane.

Lights Out Reinvents Classic Horror in a Fresh Way

Lights Out Reinvents Classic Horror in a Fresh Way
One thing I always look forward to when going to any horror movie, is seeing.... well, mostly hearing, how the audience reacts. While I love movies like The Witch, which is so engrossing and intense that you can hear a pin drop in the theater, I really adore movies that scare the s--t out of people, to the point where I can hear their reactions. For me, the more unusual and natural the reactions are a sign that this particular movie is quite effective, and the reactions I heard during Lights Out made it so much more fun, for me anyway. I'm not sure how much fun it was for the woman, who let out piercing shrieks every time a jump-scare moment happened and would rapidly stomp her feet on the ground like Thumper, but it was just one of many reasons why I loved Lights Out.
