Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje isn't just an excellent actor. Now he's also a living Marvel/DC crossover.
Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who played Algrim the Strong and Kurse in Marvel's Thor: The Dark World, has reportedly signed up to appear as Batman baddie Killer Croc in Suicide Squad, the second film in the nascent DC Cinematic Universe.
Warner Bros. has released the full theatrical trailer for this May's Mad Max: Fury Road, and "insane" doesn't even begin to describe the joyous, balls-to-the-wall madness contained within. This thing is hell on wheels, a caravan of breakneck craziness that uppercuts every tired blockbuster convention with pure, uncut bombastic energy and so much real, practical action it'll make your head spin.
The upcoming True Story is, in fact, based on a true story. But the title's also ironic, because True Story is all about lies and the slippery, elusive nature of the truth.
The film, which debuted at Sundance earlier this year, stars James Franco and Jonah Hill, a pair who last shared the screen in This Is the End and both are known for foul-mouthed, funny shenanigans. True Story calls upon both to flex their Oscar-nominated dramatic muscles, though.
With its big-budget live-action remakes of beloved animated classics, Disney is riding a gravy train on biscuit wheels. So long as each one keeps making huge sums of money, the studio is going to keep he train chugging along.
In news that's absolutely not surprising, the Disney remake train is going to stop at Mulan station down the line.
Perfectly timed on the heels of the Spectre teaser trailer, the full theatrical trailer for Spy introduces the world's next great secret agent, an expert at espionage who could give James Bond a run for his money.
And the spy of Spy isn't a misogynist or an imperialist, either. She's Melissa McCarthy.
Wonder Twin powers activa—wait, wait no. These aren't the Wonder Twins. These, according to the title of a new Avengers: Age of Ultron featurette, are the Super Siblings, Wanda and Pietro Maximoff.
Dame Helen Mirren is an impossibly talented actress and an endlessly enchanting human. She's won an Oscar, along with a wheelbarrow full of BAFTAs, Emmys, and Golden Globes. She's been knighted in the Order of the British Empire, for pete's sake.
Yet even with all those distinctions, a legendary career, and worldwide adulation she has yet to fulfill her wildest dream.
"My great ambition is to be in a Fast and Furious movie,” Mirren herself revealed.
Following the first Spectre teaser trailer, Sony Pictures has released several new images from the opening sequence of the twenty-fourth official 007 adventure.
Before the opening credits, James Bond always grabs the audience's attention with a slam-bang action scene that sets the table for the two hours of adventure, womanizing, and product placement to follow. Spectre is currently shooting its opener in Mexico City, and in addition to the new pictures showing Daniel Craig in action, a comprehensive rundown of the sequence has arrived online.
Action speaks louder than words.
So even though there's precious little dialogue, these four Mad Max: Fury Road aren't just loud, they're vein-poppingly, throat-wreckingly screaming at the top of their lungs.
Hugh Jackman was there, fifteen years ago, at the dawn of the modern superhero boom, and we all imagined he would be there at the end, too, playing Wolverine with silvered mutton-chops but still inexplicably ripped at 76 years old. The seemingly ageless actor himself recently supported that notion, saying that Birdman had him wondering if he should ever stop wielding Wolvie's claws.
Turns out we won't see a geriatric Jackman still starring as a shirtless mutant thirty years down the line, or even five years down the line, because Hugh Jackman has announced that he only has one more Wolverine performance left in him.
He's already played the most famous mutant in Marvel's roster seven times, most recently in last summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past and he's on board to star in a sequel to The Wolverine, due in theaters March 3, 2017. Based on Jackman's announcement, though, it sounds like Wolverine 3 will be his final bow, rounding out his tenure at an even eight movies.
