Alicia Vikander has quickly become one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood after breaking out with Ex Machina and stealing the show in The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and The Danish Girl. She’s currently filming Tomb Raider as the new Lara Croft, and is now in negotiations to star in Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire follow-up, Freakshift.
Things are finally looking up for Drew Goddard. After a long period of lining up projects only to see them topple down, it looks like he’s stepping behind the camera again for what’ll be his second feature film. The Cabin in the Woods director just sold a spec script to Fox, entitled Bad Times at the El Royale. And so far, that’s all we know about it.
With viral marketing nearing its peak, it’s become increasingly vital for movies to get a little creative with their campaigns. The upcoming Kong: Skull Island, which hits theaters in a week, has been tossing out cryptic clues and hints about the movie and the so-called MONARCH organization behind the expedition to find the giant ape. Now, you can do some ape-hunting yourself from the comfort of your own home, as Skull Island has been officially added to Google Maps.
Tilda Swinton is known for transforming herself for her roles. She aged herself a few decades for her part in The Grand Budapest Hotel, she went bald for Doctor Strange, and perhaps her weirdest look was the false-toothed Margaret Thatcher-type she played in 2014’s Snowpiercer. Well, weirdest until now, that is. Recent set photos from the Suspiria remake seem to show an older gentleman exiting his trailer — except, that’s no man, that’s Tilda Swinton.
Chloe Moretz went on an acting hiatus for a little while last fall after filming both November Criminals and Brain on Fire back to back — an understandable decision for someone who’s kept their schedule consistently busy since the first Kick Ass. And portraying someone with anti-NDMA receptor encephalitis can‘t have been exactly restful. Moretz is back in the acting game, having signed on to the Suspiria remake and The Miseducation of Cameron Post, but we get to see her efforts for Brain on Fire right now in a new trailer.
Even though the story was more or less wrapped up at the end of The Purge: Election Year, we should probably get used to these movies, much like the Purge itself, happening about once a year. James DeMonaco, creator of the franchise and director of all three, will be back writing the screenplay and working closely with Universal to find a director for the fourth.
No, this is not a drill. Paramount shelving the new Friday the 13th so soon before production was supposed to begin came as a somewhat sudden disappointment, but, to paraphrase Julie Andrews, when Hollywood closes a door, somewhere they open a window. As it turns out, that window is a Halloween reboot, which already has a director, a screenwriter, a studio, a release date, and, quite possibly, a score from the horror master himself, John Carpenter.
Two movies steeped in the very same kind of controversy are about to hit theaters: The Great Wall, whose casting of Matt Damon in the lead role of a movie ostensibly about a fantastical spin on Chinese history is laughable at best, and Ghost in the Shell, which cast Scarlett Johanssen in a role that is, for all intents and purposes, a Japanese woman. Well, robot-woman. Both sets of actors from both films have tried their best to find ways around this whitewashing issue, with many involved in The Great Wall calling it a “cross-cultural” story of “an outsider.” Johanssen recently addressed accusations of whitewashing leveled at her own movie, and unfortunately she doesn’t really get it.
There’s only one thing weirder than a biopic about an artist who’s still alive, and that’s a biopic about an artist who’s still alive and wants nothing to do with said biopic and has in fact disowned it completely. That’s Britney Ever After, Lifetime’s (naturally) drama about pop artist Britney Spears’ career and fall to “rock bottom.”
M. Night Shyamalan’s Split is a strange kind of superhero movie of its own. James McAvoy’s character has a multiple personality disorder that manifests itself like a superpower, more like a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde thing than how multiple personalities work in the real world. But this isn’t the director’s first foray into the superhero movie realm — and it’s not the last. Shyamalan announced that after Split, his next movie is going to be a sequel to his 2000 superhero flick Unbreakable. (This post contains some SPOILERS for Split, so if you don’t want those, then you’d better… split.)
