Pirates Of The Caribbean 5

“Pirates of the Caribbean” is a film series that has seriously gone downhill. That’s being generous. It’s safe to say that quite a few movie-goers out there have gone through “Pirates” fatigue, especially after the latest film, which involved mermaids and Johnny Depp doing a reheated Capt. Jack Sparrow impression. But, apparently, there’s still life in the franchise, since Disney is ramping up work on the once thought dead sequel, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” Variety is reporting that Australia has agreed to some of the financial incentive proposals put forth by Disney. The incentives were originally supposed to be for Disney’s reboot of “20,000 Leagues  [ Read More ]

Aquaman DC

Aquaman has become too cool for school now that Jason Momoa has been rumored to be DC’s underwater superhero. If such a star is going to play Aquaman, it would make tons of sense that DC would put an Aquaman film on the fast track to greenlight status. Flickering Myth is reporting that Warner Bros. has been registering some internet domains for some of their properties. The properties include “Wonder Woman,” “Shazam,” “Justice League” and “Aquaman.” So, despite the fact that DC is remaining weirdly mum over whether Aquaman will come to the big screen in a solo film, their domain-buying records say otherwise. The biggest question I have isn’t  [ Read More ]

Black Panther

The Black Panther–a fan favorite Marvel cartoon character–always seems to come close to having a movie, but never gets one. Apparently, we’re closer to a Black Panther film than we originally thought, which is great, because to the outsider, it seems like Marvel is dragging their feet. If anyone’s going to make Marvel pick up their game, it’s Stan Lee. The Marvel comic book genius recently addressed the chances of Black Panther and Black Widow movies. According to what has been reported by Comic Book Resources, Lee had a lot to say. “The chances are [Black Widow] will have her own movie because eventually all the superheroes are going to  [ Read More ]

The latest actor to come to the cast will bring some “Game of Thrones” flavor to the proceedings. Miltos Yerolemou has been added to the sci-fi cast, according to the BBC. Yerolemou plays one of the coolest characters on “Game of Thrones,” master swordsman Syrio Forel. However,  [ Read More ]

Interview: The Cast and Crew Talk About the Musical Drama Frank

Taking whatever means necessary to achieve your life-long dreams is often an emotional struggle people are willing to take in order to realize their goals and desires. But not everyone truly has the talent they believe they have in order to succeed, which makes the seriousness at which they take themselves much more comical and intriguing. That’s certainly the case with the musical comedy-drama, ‘Frank,’ in which the main characters, who are in a band together, aren’t able to achieve their musical aspirations, as they’re not as talented as they believe. But award-winning Irish director, Lenny Abrahmson, who previously helmed such films as ‘Garage’ and ‘What Richard Did,’ effortlessly engaged  [ Read More ]

Actress Sophia Myles enthralling embraced the need to infuse her new horror independent film, ‘The Damned,’ which was helmed by genre veteran Victor Garcia, with both powerful emotions and physicality to showcase the true terrors of the story.  [ Read More ]
