“Fast Color” Refreshingly Blends Genres

There are surprisingly few attempts to do small scale superhero stories. Almost every time out, it’s blockbuster or bust. Even supposedly smaller scale offerings are still huge, like Deadpool or Logan. Even Chronicle was hardly an independent title. It’s a missed opportunity, too. So, when along comes something like Fast Color, an indie that explores similar themes and topics, it’s a breath of fresh air for sure. Armed with really strong work from Gugu Mbatha-Raw, you’ll often forget that you’re not watching something epic. Her chops more than make up for the occasional narrative shortcoming. This movie isn’t what you’re expecting, but that’s a compliment to all involved. The film is a science fiction drama/thriller, though in the way it’s presented, it’s essentially also a superhero origin story of sorts. When we meet Ruth (Mbatha-Raw), we can tell she

UK box office preview: 'Red Joan' leads openers; family-friendly holdovers to dominate
Greta’, ’Dragged Across Concrete’ among new titles.

Holdovers look set to dominate the UK box office this weekend, with Trevor Nunn’s spy drama Red Joan amongst the new openers.

Produced by David Parfitt’s Trademark Films, the Lionsgate-distributed feature is led by Judi Dench and 2014 Screen Star of Tomorrow Sophie Cookson, and based on the novel of the same name by Jennie Rooney. Cookson plays Joan Stanley, a Cambridge physics student in 1938 who falls for a young communist; while Dench takes up the character in 2000 when MI5 come to arrest her.

The film will be aiming to top

Hellboy Remake Swaps Out Stalin for Hitler in Russia

Hellboy Remake Swaps Out Stalin for Hitler in Russia
The Hellboy reboot, which has been off to something of a rocky start, has had an interesting wrinkle thrown into the mix, thanks to censors in Russia. This movie is going to need every single dollar it can get from international markets if it has any hope of becoming a success. So for Lionsgate, it's great news that the movie is playing in Russia. They just decided to remove a reference to infamous Soviet political figure Joseph Stalin. In its place, they've added a reference to Adolf Hitler.

Warning: minor spoilers ahead for the Hellboy reboot. This is already a strange movie, filled with strange beasts. One of those beasts goes by the name of Baba Yaga, which is ripped from Russian folklore. At one point, David Harbour's titular character is speaking with Baba Yaga and reminds him that he once tried to resurrect the spirit of Joseph Stalin by saying,

The R-Rating As a Selling Point: When Films Become Preoccupied With Their Rating

Tom Jolliffe looks at when films become pre-occupied with their rating….

We’ve seen this become increasingly more common. A reboot, a remake, or just as a counter to other films in the genre, there comes a desire to market a film as being (almost rebelliously) R rated. This weekend in fact, sees a prime example. Guillermo Del Toro made an enjoyable Hellboy in 2004. It might not have been as violent as some of the comic book incarnations. He made an even more enjoyable sequel. Visually dazzling, engaging, wry, witty and imaginative. Were Hellboy fans left feeling particularly short-changed? I never got that sense generally. Did the ‘soft’ rating leave them wishing that Hb was a bit fruitier with his language and a bit more violent in his dispatching of villains? I never particularly got that sense either.

We now have a reboot starring David Harbour in place of Ron Perlman.

Exclusive Interview: S. Craig Zahler on Dragged Across Concrete

  • HeyUGuys
S. Craig Zahler is a filmmaker with a flare for violence but more interestingly is going beyond this with his intriguing characters and stories.

With only three films to date he is an eclectic director with a western (Bone Tomahawk), prison thriller (Brawl in Cell Block 99) as well as cop drama under his belt already.

In his third film, Dragged Across Concrete sees the director delve into the cop genre that showed at the Glasgow Film Festival this year. Read our glowing review of the film here.

We once again see Vince Vaughn, currently enjoying a ‘Vaugn-aissance’ (?) of sorts, team up with Zahler as well as Mel Gibson who knows a thing a two about playing a law enforcer.

We catch up with Zahler to talk all things Dragged Across Concrete and more.

Congrats on Dragged Across Concrete. Where did the idea or inspiration come from for this film?

Wolverine Vs. Blade Comic Arrives This Summer from Marvel

Ever wondered what might happen if Blade were to duke it out with Wolverine? We need not wonder for much longer, as Marvel Comics is set to answer that question for us this summer. The publisher has officially announced a new special comic, Wolverine Vs. Blade, from writer Marc Guggenheim and artist Dave Wilkins. Will it be the Daywalker or the metal-clawed mutant who emerges victorious? That won't be revealed for a few months, but it should be fun finding out.

Wolverine Vs. Blade is being billed as a one-off special, which is set to hit stands or a digital retailer near you this July. The cover art for the book has been revealed and it looks absolutely wild. Set against a blood-red backdrop, with the moon shining behind them, the two titular characters are going at one another viciously. Blade is dangerously near piercing Wolverine with a stake that

Dark Phoenix Trailer Breakdown and Analysis

David Crow Apr 17, 2019

We break down the latest trailer for X-Men: Dark Phoenix and what it might mean for Jessica Chastain's mysterious villain... and Jean Grey.

The final Dark Phoenix trailer for the final X-Men movie, at least while the mutants reside in their first cinematic home of 20th Century Fox, is here. It's no exaggeration to say that this is the best looking Dark Phoenix marketing we’ve seen this side of the international trailer.

Some fans are simply eager to get on with the future—although they have a long wait of at least five years ahead of them according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige—but we find ourselves still rooting for Dark Phoenix. Composed of a still highly talented cast, including Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, and Tye Sheridan, the seventh main X-Men movie is populated with a

R-Rated Deadpool Won't Change Under Disney's Rule Says Marvel Boss

R-Rated Deadpool Won't Change Under Disney's Rule Says Marvel Boss
Good news for those who still want to see more R-rated Deadpool movies, as Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige isn't interested in changing things up on that front. Disney recently completed their purchase of Fox (or most of it anyway), which means they now finally have the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four, which includes Deadpool. That, in effect, means that Marvel has those characters back, since Disney owns Marvel as well. There was some concern that the future of the Merc With a Mouth would be in doubt at the Mouse House. Fortunately, Disney likes money enough to keep this train on the tracks.

Kevin Feige has been making the press rounds as of late to promote Avengers: Endgame, which finally hits theaters next week. During a recent interview, he was asked about potential R-rated movies, such as further Deadpool installments, under the new Disney regime. Feige made it clear,

Marvel Studios won’t change Deadpool because it’s “working”, says Kevin Feige

Deadpool is working just fine says Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige, so there is no need to change anything.

While many fans are happy that the Fox Marvel characters such as the X-Men are coming over to Marvel Studios at long last, some are worried what this might mean for current beloved franchises like Deadpool.

Deadpool 1 and 2 have been very successful but will the franchise be welcome at Marvel in its current form? Well, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has told Variety that they have no intention of changing it:

“When we were purchased, Bob Iger said to us, ‘if it’s not broke, don’t fix it’. There’s no question that Deadpool is working, so why would we change it?”

Jeremy Renner Says Stan Lee Will Be Watching Avengers: Endgame With Us

In November of last year, legendary comic book creator Stan Lee passed away, and to a certain extent, the upcoming Avengers: Endgame will stand as one big, 3-hour tribute to the writer’s legacy. In fact, if you ask Jeremy Renner, the man will in some ways be right there with us next week as we make that trip to the theater.

As part of the press tour for the Avengers: Infinity War sequel, the Hawkeye actor stopped by Seoul, South Korea, where he was interviewed by Cna. When asked what he thought Lee’s reaction would be watching the McU’s Phase 3 finale, Renner offered the following response:

“He’s going to be watching it, brother. He’s watching it. He’s in all of us. He’s going to be watching it.”

No doubt Lee will be on the mind of many filmgoers as they go to see next week’s release,

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige Says Deadpool is Working, So Why Change It?

A lot of Deadpool fans were afraid that after Disney bought 20th Century Fox that they would change it and clean it up as they moved forward with it. Deadpool is the only iteration of the X-Men from Fox that will carry over into the McU and Marvel Studio is not going to change him.

While talking to Variety, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige explained:

“When we were purchased, Bob said to us, ‘if it’s not broke, don’t fix it. There’s no question that Deadpool is working, so why would we change it?”

That’s the answer that will make so many fans so happy. Even after all the talk about keeping the character the same over the past few months fans still seemed apprehensive about it, but seriously… they aren’t going to change Deadpool! They are going to let Deadpool be Deadpool, and that’s fantastic!

Kevin Feige Doesn’t Want To Change Anything About The Deadpool Movies

As of last month, the Deadpool franchise is officially a Disney property, giving the Mouse House the legal go-ahead to bring Wade Wilson into the McU. But while the Merc with a Mouth’s solo outings have so far been a fair bit bloodier and more profanity-laden than your average Marvel Studios flick, producer Kevin Feige seemingly has no intention of changing what works about the series.

In an interview with Variety, the Marvel Studios head observed that the Deapool franchise is doing pretty well for itself these days, arguing that he doesn’t need to fix what isn’t broken.

“When we were purchased, Bob said to us, ‘if it’s not broke, don’t fix it,’” Feige said. “There’s no question that Deadpool is working, so why would we change it?”

The “Bob” that Feige is referring to is Disney CEO Bob Iger, who also offered his

Marvel Studios Chief Kevin Feige on the Disney Plus Shows, Fox Deal

  • Variety
Marvel Studios Chief Kevin Feige is gearing up for the release of “Avengers: Endgame,” which is expected to dominate the box office when it opens at the end of April. But he’s also looking beyond its premiere to a new phase in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU), one that will introduce new heroes and villains.

One element that will be different is that the coming storyline won’t unspool exclusively on the big screen. This year, Disney is launching its own challenger to Netflix, a streaming service dubbed Disney Plus. Feige and his team are overseeing several limited series such as “WandaVision,” “Loki,” and an untitled show about Hawkeye for the platform. These Marvel heroes will be played by Elisabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Tom Hiddleston, and Jeremy Renner who portrayed the same characters in several big-screen “Avengers” sequels and spinoffs.

“These episodes will intersect with the movies in a very big way,

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Expected To Bomb At The Box Office

Oh X-Men: Dark Phoenix, whatever are we to do with you?

Once upon a time, not too long ago, the X-Men movie franchise was one of the big cheeses of the cinematic superhero world. 2000’s X-Men did a lot to cement the tone of the modern superhero film, with entries in the series garnering critical acclaim and cleaning up at the box office. The franchise even survived a few wobbles, moving past the disasters of X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine and filling out its universe with offbeat hits like Deadpool and Logan.

But now, with the rights to the franchise owned by Disney and the characters soon to be appearing in the McU, it seems that Fox’s take on the franchise is going to go out with a whimper. That’s because the usually reliable Box Office Pro is pegging the film at a $40-50 million opening weekend,
