Avengers: Endgame Features an Unexpected Cameo From a Character in Iron Man 3

Avengers: Endgame Features an Unexpected Cameo From a Character in Iron Man 3
Warning: big ol' spoilers for Avengers: Endgame ahead! Proceed with caution.

Avengers: Endgame was always going to end with a bit of tragedy, and the final team-up film in the original Avengers franchise delivers on that promise with the gut-wrenching death of Tony Stark, aka Iron Man. His exit from the series isn't unexpected, since Robert Downey Jr. has been hinting for a while now that his time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe had an expiration date. Fortunately the way he goes out during the team's all-out brawl against Thanos's army is a valiant one, and the funeral held in his memory afterwards is attended by all of his friends and family. However, if one teenager in the group of mourners took you by surprise, you're not alone.

The intimate funeral is held at Tony and Pepper's lakeside home after his death with all the Avengers present - even Captain Marvel

You’ve Got Red on You: Us and the Jumpsuit Question

Spoilers Throughout

Clearly Us (2019) director Jordan Peele is as interested in the craft of costume as a tool for storytelling as any means available to him. Peele’s costume designer for his film, Kym Barrett, is highly proficient, a veteran, with such memorable titles as Romeo and Juliet (1996), The Matrix (1999) and The Nice Guys (2016) under her belt. Her contribution is specific and considered – the ‘cut like’ jagged edges in Lupita Nyong’o’s blood soaked attire as Adelaide testament to Barrett’s knowledge of the subtle communication costume can achieve. It is, then, somewhat of a shame that Peele insists on everything in his story being so literal that we as an audience are actually given too many answers when much could be left open to interpretation.

Really, we come to learn everything we ever need to know about The Tethered: who created them, how they lived, why they cannot form words,

‘Finding Steve McQueen’ Trailer: It’s Like ‘Baby Driver’, But With Richard Nixon
The fast-paced, somewhat goofy Finding Steve McQueen trailer makes this heist comedy look like a weird hybrid of Baby Driver, The Old Man and the Gun and The Nice Guys. Except…it doesn’t look as good as any of those films. But any movie with William Fichtner can’t be all bad! Despite the title, this doesn’t have anything to do with […]

Jamie Bell, Margaret Qualley & Director Tim Sutton Reteam For ‘The Chain’; Voltage Pictures Boards Foreign Sales – Efm

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Voltage Pictures has boarded international sales on Tim Sutton’s upcoming thriller The Chain, which reunites the filmmaker with his Donnybrook stars Jamie Bell and Margaret Qualley. Both stars are in talks to join in addition to Colette‘s Denise Gough and Captain America: Civil War‘s Sebastian Stan.

Voltage president and COO Jonathan Deckter announced the news today.

The Chain, which Sutton adapted from Tobias Wolff’s award-winning short story of the same name, follows the story of a man’s daughter who is viciously attacked by a dog, setting off a chain of events that ends in unspeakable tragedy. This is the second feature-length adaption of Wolff’s literary work; his memoir This Boy’s Life was adapted into the hit feature film of the same name starring Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Barkin. Production on The Chain will start in April.

Producers are Rumble Films’ David Lancaster and Stephanie Wilcox. Deckter negotiated the deal with Jon Shiffman COO/CFO of Rumble Films on behalf of the producers. UTA will rep North American rights. Rumble Films also produced Sutton’s bare-knuckle pugilist pic Donnybrook which made its world premiere at last year’s Toronto Film Festival’s Platform Section, won the 2018 Fantastic Fest main competition and will be released by IFC Films in 2019.

“The incomparable Tobias Wolff is one of my favorite authors and we’re even bigger fans of Jamie Bell since working with him on the powerful feature Skin,” said Deckter. “We’re thrilled to partner with our friends at Rumble Films to bring Tim Sutton’s adaptation to audiences around the world. It ticks all the boxes for a strong, international commercial contender so we could not be happier to be representing The Chain,” Deckter continued.

The Chain is the latest film to be added to Voltage’s production and sales slate for Berlin. The company recently announced its new production Blackwing from writer David Loughery and its worldwide representation of the social media thriller Follow Me.

Bell who first rose to prominence in his debut role in Billy Elliot, most recently played Bryon Widner in Guy Nattiv’s skinhead redemption drama Skin, which won the Fipresci prize at Toronto and is set to open in the Panorama section at this year’s Berlin. He is repped by UTA and Artists Independent Management.

Two-time Olivier Award-winning actress Denise Gough’s film credits include Bleecker Street Media’s Colette opposite Keira Knightley and Dominic West and Lionsgate’s Juliet, Naked opposite Rose Byrne and Chris O’Dowd. Gough was nominated for Best Featured Actress in a Play at the 2018 Tony Awards for her role in Angels in America. She recently wrapped Monday and can next be seen in 20th Century Fox’s The Kid Who Would Be King, which is currently in release. Gough is repped by UTA and Independent Talent Group.

Stan’s credits include Jonathan Demme’s Ricki and the Flash, Ridley Scott’s The Martian and I, Tonya. Most recently, Stan starred opposite Nicole Kidman in Karyn Kusama’s Destroyer. He is repped by ICM Partners and Brookside Artist Management.

Qualley is best known for her role as Jill Garvey on the HBO series The Leftovers. Her film credits include Shane Black’s The Nice Guys and Maggie Bett’s Novitiate. Qualley will next star in the FX limited series Fosse/Verdon opposite Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams, premiering in the spring. She is repped by UTA and Management 360.

Scientists predicted what would happen, but it was too late. The earth has been devastated, and one lone survivor is still stuck on the planet. Netflix has dropped the first trailer for the sci-fi thriller Io. And we get a new poster for this post-apocalyptic devastator as well.

But with the final shuttle scheduled to leave the planet for a distant colony, her determination to stay is rocked by the arrival of another survivor, Micah (Anthony Mackie). She must decide whether to journey with him to join the rest of humanity and begin life anew, or stay to fight for Earth's survival.

Tada! Yet another Netflix movie you didn’t know existed until just a few short weeks before it premieres! While about post-cataclysmic Earth, and high concept, “Io” is a character-driven science fiction film and tells the story of one girl’s coming of age while examining the dangers of humanity’s current relationship with the planet. It also sounds environmentally timely and perhaps the dark side of climate change. The film stars Margaret Qualley, Anthony Mackie and Danny Huston.

Ryan Gosling movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘La La Land,’ ‘Blue Valentine,’ ‘Half Nelson’

  • Gold Derby
Full disclosure. Many years ago, I worked at the Disney Channel at the time producers were casting a revival of the kids show “The Mickey Mouse Club.” I don’t know who did the selection of the cast members, but among the then-unknown pre-teens they chose were Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Keri Russell and a gawky 13 year-old Canadian kid named Ryan Gosling. What a cast! All have gone on to great success as adults, but Gosling especially chose his own path to become one of the most respected film actors working today.

In the course of such films as “Half Nelson,” “Blue Valentine, ” and “The Big Short,” Gosling has been nominated for two Academy Awards and four Screen Actors Guild Awards. He has also been nominated for five Golden Globe Awards, which includes a win for his performance in the Damien Chazelle musical “La La Land.”

'Venom' & 'Star is Born' Look to Fend Off 'First Man', 'Goosebumps 2' & 'El Royale'
Thanks to a record October weekend last week the month is already off to its best start ever and things don't look as if they'll be slowing down this weekend. At the top, look for last weekend's two new releases — Venom and A Star is Born — to be in a close race for the weekend's #1 spot. Meanwhile, Universal's awards hopeful First Man should lead a crop of three new wide releases followed by Sony's Goosebumps 2 and Fox's Bad Times at the El Royale. Overall, we're looking at a weekend that could rank as one of the top five overall October weekends of all-time. We'll begin with Sony's Venom, which we expect to a drop around 62% or so, heading toward a three-day grossing $30.5 million, pushing the film's domestic cume a couple million shy of $140 million after ten days in release. Whether that will be enough to top the

The Evolution of Ryan Gosling: From ‘Mickey Mouse Club’ to ‘First Man’ (Photos)
Ryan Gosling traveled to New Zealand in 1998 to film the kids series “Young Hercules,” in which he played the titular son of Zeus during his warrior training. Shortly afterwards, Gosling decided to move from TV to film and take on more adult roles.

Child actors sometimes have a hard time transitioning to a successful adult career, but Gosling made the jump thanks to his performance in “Remember The Titans.” His previous TV work helped him pick up the role in Disney’s family movie, while the film’s message on race helped him prove that he could handle more thematically heavy work.

In 2001, Gosling burst onto the independent film scene with “The Believer,” in which he played a Jewish neo-Nazi who struggles with self-hatred over his heritage. Critics praised Gosling for his thought-provoking portrayal of the film’s almost paradoxical main character.

A year later, Gosling got a chance
