Six months after The New York Times detailed sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood scandal is now in the process of becoming a movie. The movie mogul was blacklisted from the film industry, and now Annapurna Pictures and Plan B Entertainment will release a movie detailing the events.
Following the allegations made against film producer Harvey Weinstein, two New York Times reporters, Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, covered the intimate details regarding the scandal. In fact, their investigative story titled “Harvey Weinstein Paid Off Sexual Harassment Accusers for Decades” singlehandedly prompted the firing of Weinstein from his own company, as well as his removal from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Now, Annapurna Pictures and Brad Pitt’s Plan ...

Avengers: Infinity War is one of the most ambitious movies ever made, with a cast of characters bigger than just about any cinematic event. In terms of the sheer number of stars gathered from all corners of Hollywood to appear in one picture, the only comparison is the epic 1963 comedy, It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. Practically every main character (and many supporting figures) from every corner of the MCU have assembled to take on Thanos and his Black Order in the ultimate battle over the fate of the universe… Well, until 2019’s Avengers 4, that is.

The latest trailer for Venom has just undergone an awesome reimagining through the lens of the 1990s animated television show Spider-Man: The Animated Series. The audio and title cards have been replicated, but all other visuals have been replaced with footage from the original show, creating a perfectly-synced throwback to pre-Tom Hardy Venom.
In the upcoming film from director Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), Hardy will essentially be playing two characters when he brings Eddie Brock and his symbiote-infested alter ego to the big screen in Venom.

Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie have revealed the biggest and most elaborate stunt from Mission: Impossible – Fallout. Cruise has become infamous for continuously upping the ante for himself with each new Mission: Impossible film, as far as the stunt-work is concerned. After swinging around the tallest building in the world (the Burj Khalifa) for 2011’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Cruise found a way to top his own efforts by hanging onto the side of a plane for the opening sequence in 2015’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.

Tom Cruise reveals that contrary to internet legend, he was never close to playing Tony Stark in Marvel’s Iron Man. Tom Cruise has enjoyed a long and illustrious career playing everything from action heroes to romantic leads to hilariously profane cigar chomping movie producers. But one thing Cruise has never played? A superhero.
Sure, a lot of the characters Cruise plays are so insanely indestructible they might as well be superheroes. The line between Ethan Hunt and a true superhero is so razor-thin as to barely exist. But in fact, Cruise has never crossed over and entered any proper superhero universe. If you believe popular legend, ...

The Final Fantasy series counts a lot of strange creatures among the various playable characters that appear in each game. It’s possible to have aliens, abominable snowmen, moogles, monsters, robots, and wild animals in your party of adventurers.
The Final Fantasy games also offer no correlation between a character’s appearance and their strength, as the little girl who wields a paintbrush in Final Fantasy VI can hit just as hard as the muscle-bound monk as long as she has the right equipment and stats.
It’s common for players to pick their Final Fantasy party based on which characters they like in each game. This means that the ...

Disney XD is going back to a galaxy far, far away with their new animated series Star Wars Resistance. The Star Wars universe is thriving with several forms of content being released. While the movies get the most attention, weekly comic books, several novels, and TV shows have also helped expand the canon. A live-action Star Wars TV series is currently being developed by Jon Favreau, but the franchise lost a vital piece earlier this year when the animated TV show Star Wars Rebels ended after four seasons.
Rebels was the second animated series to be part of Star Wars canon, following Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The Rebels finale was rather hopeful, ...

Thanos is out to kill the Avengers in Infinity War, but he may create a new Marvel movie superhero in the process. Marvel fans have hoped to see Nova join the MCU for years, as the Avengers-focused films have shifted farther and farther from planet Earth, and deeper into the alien powers of Marvel’s Cosmic Universe. Those two worlds collide thanks to Thanos in Infinity War, but the evidence suggests Avengers 3 may also act as the origin story for Richard Rider a.k.a. Nova, the last survivor of Xandar.

Alien director Ridley Scott has said he wants to replace the titular creature in its own franchise, but with respect to the legendary filmmaker, he just doesn’t seem to understand the Xenomorph anymore. The beast is far from “cooked.”
Ridley Scott’s work in the sci-fi genre is rightly considered groundbreaking, with both Alien and Blade Runner presenting visions of the future that influenced the genre for decades to come. Scott’s return to the Alien franchise with Prometheus was highly anticipated, but that movie would ultimately split viewers down the middle. The movie also established the director was moving away from familiar tropes like eggs, facehuggers and even the classic Xenomorph itself.Related: Click to continue reading Ridley Scott Doesn’t Understand The Alien AnymoreThe post Ridley Scott Doesn’t Understand The Alien Anymore appeared first on Screen Rant.

Wolverine is the best at what he does, and what he does isn’t very nice. It’s also a little confusing how he does it.
Since his appearance in The Incredible Hulk #180 in 1974, Wolverine has gone through some major changes and retcons. Wolverine burst onto the scene with a simple premise– he was short, Canadian, had claws, and was temperamental.
With no real plans for Wolverine’s future, Marvel could not have predicted how monumentally popular Wolverine would become. Wolverine has not only been a valuable member of the X-Men and Avengers, but he’s also a cultural icon.
Although his past has always been a little murky, his powers seemed straight forward– he has ...

The Batman is currently in development under the direction of Matt Reeves after the departure of Ben Affleck as director. The original Affleck script was expected to include Deathstroke as the main villain, but it’s currently unknown what Reeves’ version will be about other than the fact that it will be a hard boiled detective story. After months of uncertainty, it’s not even clear if Affleck will return to the role of the Caped Crusader, but he hasn’t been officially ruled out yet. Rumors have suggested he’ll be replaced by Jake Gyllenhaal, but Gyllenhaal recently denied the rumor.
Following rumors that Marvel may be developing an Eternals movie for phase 4 of the MCU, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has confirmed that The Eternals is one of several projects the studio is considering for a film.
