Why Chris Evans Will Make an Awesome Dentist in Little Shop of Horrors Remake
Seriously it’s kind of hard to see Chris Evans as the bad guy that often since he’s played the hero so many times that it’s become a part of how people see him. But after Knives Out and thanks to the fact that he did play an evil ex on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World it’s not so far out of bounds as to be impossible. But the role that has Joey Paur of GeekTyrant and so many others talking at the moment is the upcoming spot he’s taking in the remake of Little Shop of Horrors as the sadistic

After Oscar Win, Taika Waititi Eyes a Gory, Psychedelic Hollywood Satire Starring Jude Law
After winning the Oscar for Best Adapted screenplay for his Nazi satire “Jojo Rabbit,” Taika Waititi has reportedly signed on to co-write, executive produce, and direct some episodes of a limited series from Showtime, “The Auteur.”

The series, which is still in development, would see Waititi adapting the psychedelic graphic novel of the same name by James Callahan and Rick Spears about a filmmaker who enters a downward spiral after making one of Hollywood’s biggest-ever bombs; Jude Law is in talks to star as the main character. (Via Variety.)

Peter Warren (“Ghost Team”) will co-write the show with Waititi. Law and Eric Gitter of Closed on Mondays (“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”) are also executive producing.

The graphic novel was published in 2014 by Oni Press, publisher of “Scott Pilgrim,” and adaptations of “Clerks,” “Invader Zim,” and “Rick and Morty.” Here’s how Oni describes the first volume of the

‘Birds of Prey': Mary Elizabeth Winstead Never Considered Female-Led Film Wouldn’t Appeal to Wider Audience (Video)

‘Birds of Prey': Mary Elizabeth Winstead Never Considered Female-Led Film Wouldn’t Appeal to Wider Audience (Video)
Birds of Prey” isn’t simply about the emancipation of a woman: It stars five women. It was directed by a woman, written by a woman, produced by two women, and for a studio led by a woman.

The film, directed by Cathy Yan (“Dead Pigs”), has been described as “a punk rock feminist superheroine movie,” which shouldn’t even be something one needs to point out. In fact, “Birds of Prey” star Mary Elizabeth Winstead told TheWrap that she never even considered the comic book film wouldn’t appeal to a wider audience, which has recently been a concern for films with all-female casts.

“I never really thought about that, to be honest. I just read it and thought it was a great script and a great group of characters,” Winstead said. “I like to be optimistic and think that if we make a good movie, people will want

Mary Elizabeth Winstead on ‘Birds of Prey,’ Working With All Women and ‘Passions’

Mary Elizabeth Winstead on ‘Birds of Prey,’ Working With All Women and ‘Passions’
Mary Elizabeth Winstead has been working steadily in film and on television since 1999, when at age 14 she got her first regular gig, on the fantastical NBC soap opera “Passions.” She thought she was signing on for “a daytime version of ‘Dawson’s Creek,’” Winstead says, but then the show’s campily supernatural heart revealed itself. “Every day was just sort of, like, what is happening? It was very strange!”

Since then, Winstead has starred in “Death Proof,” “10 Cloverfield Lane,” and the “Fargo” TV series, among many others. On Feb. 7, audiences will see her as Huntress in Cathy Yan’s “Birds of Prey” — the first superhero movie of 2020 — wilding out with Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.

What did you know about Huntress before you signed on?

I had a vague awareness of her. Once I heard about the project and I started researching her, I found her to be a really interesting,

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World Star Has A Great Idea For A Sequel

It’s hard to believe that Scott Pilgrim vs. the World came out almost ten years ago, with the Edgar Wright-directed movie still representing a stand-out graphic novel adaptation. While a sequel has never been a serious prospect, it’s not out of the question that we’d eventually get another take on the characters and world from Bryan Lee O’Malley’s original comic book series, given the cult following of the film.

In fact, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who played Ramona Flowers in Scott Pilgrim, was recently asked for her pitch for a sequel, and has some definite ideas on what she’d like to see. Winstead, who’s currently promoting her role in Birds of Prey, had this to say about how a Scott Pilgrim follow-up could work:

Mary Elizabeth Winstead Talks Scott Pilgrim 2 Ideas and Possibilities
If Scott Pilgrim 2 ever happens, Mary Elizabeth Winstead is game to return as Ramona Flowers. The movie will be celebrating its tenth anniversary this year and its legacy has become rather interesting in the years since its release. Initially, Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World was viewed as a major financial misfire, though one that critics seemed to like. However, over the last decade, it's gone on to become something of a cult classic that has a die-hard following. If that ends up being enough to get a sequel made, Winstead is interested in the idea of exploring these characters now that they're older.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead is currently promoting Birds of Prey, which hits theaters next weekend. During a recent interview, the actress was asked if she would be interested in returning for a Scott Pilgrim vs The World sequel. While there is no movement on the proposed movie as of yet,

Another New Guns Akimbo Trailer Unleashes Even More Chaos

It was only a couple of days ago that the first trailer for Guns Akimbo was released, and it was clearly decided that a mere two minutes were not enough to adequately convey the film’s sheer volume of unremitting chaos. As such, another is now available for your viewing pleasure, and looks even more glorious.

The plot sees waster Miles (Daniel Radcliffe) run afoul of Skizm, a gang running a dark net site that livestreams urban gladiatorial death matches, and discovers his first battle is against the reigning champion Nix, played by Samara Weaving, who after this, Ready Or Not and Mayhem is fast establishing action credentials that should see her headline a new franchise in the imminent future if there’s any justice left in this hellhole of a world.

I have a theory that movies made in the style of video games, such as Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Guns Akimbo: Trailer and Release Date for Ridiculous Daniel Radcliffe Movie

Kirsten Howard Jan 16, 2020

Daniel Radcliffe has guns for hands in the first trailer for his long-awaited action flick, Guns Akimbo

Guns Akimbo has been a meme for so long that it's been pretty easy to forget that it's an actual film that exists and that will be happening to (some of) our eyes in just a couple of months time, but having only popped up at Fantastic Fest last year to some bemused reviews, this upcoming potential eyesore is sure to be catnip to those of us who find ourselves ferociously defending the likes of Shoot 'Em Up and Nerve in polite company.

Deathgasm's Jason Lei Howden is behind the bonkers actioner, in which former Pottah Daniel Radcliffe finds himself taking part in a deadly game against Samara Weaving who, if you saw last year's Ready or Not, seems to be quite good at deadly games.

30 Most Memorable Rom-Coms of the 2010s, From ‘Easy A’ to ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ (Photos)
Hollywood studios have historically relied on typically cheaper and often endearing romantic comedy to fill out slates. The genre had its ups and downs during the 2000s, but studios and audiences rekindled their love affair with rom-coms over the course of the decade. Here’s a list of some of the most memorable romantic comedies from the 2010s.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” (2010) There are more than a few genre-bending films on this list, but maybe none more interesting and ambitious than “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.” This meta, cult classic rom-com co-written and directed by Edgar Wright blends rom-com tropes with comic books as Scott Pilgrim, played by Michael Cera, fights off The League of Evil Exes in order to win the heart of the girl he’s fallen for, Ramona Flowers, played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead. The film truly is singular. And in addition to Winstead and Cera,

Superhero movies, it has been (accurately) said, rule the box office. But although billions of dollars are made every year adapting comic books about costumed vigilantes, there is a whole universe of comic-book storytelling that frequently goes unexplored. Human dramas, light comedies, sci-fi and action comics alike, these works are frequently brought to the screen but sometimes overlooked by mainstream audiences who equate comics with the superhero genre. We were paying attention. These are the non-superhero comic book films that moved us and thrilled us this decade.

10. “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” (2017)

Audiences are bizarrely unkind to space operas that aren’t called “Star Wars,” which is a shame, because “Valerian” is one of the best in the genre. Based on the French comic book series “Valérian and Laureline,” which helped inspire “Star Wars” in the first place, “City of a Thousand Planets” begins with a phenomenal,

Marvel's Shang-chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings Will Have a Similar Tone To The Matrix

Marvel fans seem pretty stoked about Marvel’s upcoming martial arts action film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The movie will come from director Destin Daniel Cretton and Simu Liu is set to star in the film.

I’m personally happy to see that the story will explore the Ten Rings and that we will get to see the real Mandarin in action. While we wait for some additional details on the film, the director has hired Bill Pope, the cinematographer of The Matrix trilogy, to help create the visual look of the movie.

While talking to Collider, Cretton talked about hiring Pope, saying, “[Pope] has a really beautiful style, that’s both naturalistic and grounded, but also heightened, in the best way. And anybody who can shoot The Matrix is probably gonna do great with this one.” He’s then asked if The Matrix will inspire the tone of Shang-Chi,

Winstead will play Huntress, who in the DC comics was once a mafia princess whose family was killed in a mob hit. She eventually becomes a vigilante hell bent on taking the mob down.

“She’s kind of an odd character… She’s weird, and funny and awkward,” Winstead said during a conversation about her upcoming film “Gemini Man,” in theaters Oct. 11. “You sort of get to tell this story of this girl who grew up training to be an assassin and didn’t ever have friends, and doesn’t know how to fit in socially, and doesn’t really

Chris Evans Has Portrayed 8 Different Comic Book Characters

With Avengers: Endgame slowly disappearing from the limelight, it looks like Chris Evans has officially ended his long-running tenure as Captain America. While it was a bittersweet moment for sure, fans are beginning to accept the changes which have recently hit the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and if one thing’s certain, it’s that the future is going to look very different moving forward.

In the midst of his departure from the McU though, some folks have started to look at his entire filmography and discovered something quite intriguing. Throughout the last two decades, Chris has played over a half a dozen comic book roles spanning close to 20 movies. While a good chunk of that can be attributed to his stint as Captain America, if you dig deeper, you’ll find he has quite an extensive history of characters which got their start in comics.

What Chris Evans Has Done for Captain America

Who’s strong and brave, here to save the American way? We salute Chris Evans’ turn as Marvel Studios’ star-spangled man

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

This feature contains Major spoilers for the ending of Avengers: Endgame.

When it comes to comic book movies, Captain America: The First Avenger was far from Chris Evans’ first rodeo. Having previously appeared in films like the Fantastic Four movies, The Losers, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and Push, he may have played more comic characters than any other actor working today. And yet, his turn as Steve Rogers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is unquestionably his best work.

But to look back on his eight years in the part is to ask not what Captain America has done for the actor, but what Chris Evans has done for the character. Marvel Studios essentially embarked on its initial

Competition: Win ‘Gangsta’ on DVD

To celebrate the home entertainment release of Gangsta, available on Digital HD 19th October and on DVD 29th October, we have a copy of the DVD up for grabs, courtesy of Signature Entertainment!

From the up-and-coming directors of Bad Boys for Life and rumoured to be attached to Beverly Hills Cop 4, a hapless group of underdogs bite off more than they can chew in a wannabe gangster story filled with outrageous humour and chaotic gangland violence alike.

Inspired by their experiences as Moroccans growing up in Belgium, El Arbi and Fallah pull no punches in lifting the curtain on not just the criminal underbelly of Antwerp’s drug trade, but also the prejudices ingrained in even those we’re supposed to trust, in this criminally hilarious gangster comedy.
