Rumor Has It Daniel Day-Lewis Quit Acting to Become a Dressmaker
Daniel Day-Lewis is primarily known for his method acting: it can take him years to fully prepare for a role, and he’s the kind of actor who really likes to immerse himself in the material. Remember when he had the Lincoln cast and crew and Steven Spielberg calling him Mr. President? Up until now, he’s never gone so method that he can’t get back out again, but if the rumors are true, his latest role might have inspired a career change.
‘Logan’ Might Not Be Hugh Jackman’s Last Appearance as Wolverine After All
When the hullabaloo about Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool possibly having a cameo in the next Wolverine movie erupted last week, everyone involved in Logan was quick to put those rumors to rest. But that might not mean we’ll never see the two X-Men in a movie together. After everything had died down, Reynolds had a chance to reflect and mentioned that he would be totally down to team up with the Canadian superhero, but there’s one big obstacle to get past: for all intents and purposes, Logan will be Hugh Jackman’s last run as Wolverine.
Christian Bale Also Might’ve Mentored Han Solo
With the announcement that Woody Harrelson would be taking on mentoring duties for Disney and Lucasfilm’s young Han Solo spinoff, the fan theories and casting began in earnest. Harrelson isn’t 100% committed to the movie yet, but come on, are they going to find anyone more perfect for it? Probably not. Apparently, the Han Solo folks had someone even bigger in mind for the role: Christian Bale was also up for the mysterious mentor part.
Get Your Face Hugged With Fox’s ‘Alien: Covenant’ VR Experience
Because terrifying us with xenomorphs onscreen just isn’t enough, Fox is now planning to create an Alien: Covenant virtual reality experience that’ll tie in with the movie and, I guess, scare users out of their minds. The project was announced at this week’s CES (Consumer Electronics Show) and is probably a much more exciting prospect than, say, a talking refrigerator.
Woody Harrelson Is in Early Talks to Play Han Solo’s Mentor in the Spinoff Film
Woody Harrelson seems to have found himself a niche. After mentoring Katniss Everdeen to greatness in The Hunger Games, the actor is poised to go guru again for the Star Wars young Han Solo spinoff movie.
New ‘Valerian’ Photo Is Extremely Reminiscent of ‘The Fifth Element’
Luc Besson is finally returning to his space opera tendencies for his new film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. For those of us who love The Fifth Element, news of his new film was an exciting surprise. And the world of Valerian looks as rich and imaginative as Besson’s worlds usually are, all the way down to the literal thousands of different alien species we’ll meet in the movie. A new photo introduces us to a character who looks intriguingly like one very important pop singer from Besson’s previous film.
Matthew McConaughey Picked ‘The Dark Tower’ Over ‘Guardians Vol. 2’ Because He Didn’t Want to Feel Like an ‘Amendment’
The McConaissance is still upon us, and Matthew McConaughey is in high demand. He almost had a role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but instead opted for the movie adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower. With the Guardians sequel poised to rake in the billions, why take a chance on a franchise-starter that might not have the same box office heft? McConaughey explained that he chose it for just that reason, and because he didn’t want to join a franchise as an afterthought.
‘Wonder Woman’ Sprints Through a War Zone in New Image
Have there been a ton more movie stills being released lately, or is it just me? Not even Alien: Covenant’s trailer release stopped that account from posting more photos, and even more have arrived this week from the It remake to Ghost in the Shell. Today’s latest is from the upcoming Wonder Woman, one of the most anticipated movies of 2017, and sees the hero suited up in the middle of a battlefield.
There’s a Lot of Fire and a Lot of Ape in This ‘Kong: Skull Island’ Concept Art
Kong’s beats may not be on fire, but his island sure is. A new concept art image from Kong: Skull Island shows the ape bursting through a wall of flames while tiny soldiers run for their lives in the foreground. You can tell the production team liked this one, because it looks like it comes straight out of the actual trailer itself.
Saw Gerrera Might Be Back for More ‘Star Wars’ Projects
While Rogue One is just a standalone and won’t be getting a sequel (you could argue that the original trilogy is technically all the sequel it needs), Saw Gerrera, one of the more intriguing characters in the movie, will be back for more projects in the Star Wars universe.
You Can Watch Carrie Fisher’s ‘Star Wars’ Audition Tape Right Here
It’s undeniable that Carrie Fisher was a rare talent — and she’d have to be, to charm the notoriously picky George Lucas with her Star Wars audition. In a recently resurfaced video, originally posted on YouTube in 2006, Fisher sits down to read a scene opposite Harrison Ford (whom Lucas initially didn’t want to cast, but he was so good in the screen tests that Ford became his Han Solo).
Katherine Waterston Likens ‘Alien: Covenant’ to a ‘Voyage Into the Unknown’
Have you heard? Alien: Covenant is coming out soon. There’s a trailer. You should watch it. Katherine Waterston is the latest actor to take on the rich world of the Alien movies, and her new character is the latest female protagonist to take on the xenomorphs (or Neomorphs, as we’ve heard whispers of a new breed of alien stalking the galaxy). her character is a science officer aboard the ship Covenant, and Waterston describes her journey as a venture “into the unknown.”
