J.J. Abrams Reportedly Being Offered His Pick Of Dceu Movies

J.J. Abrams officially signed an exclusive new deal with Warner Bros. this week, which We Got This Covered has heard means WB hopes to put him to work on the Dceu before long. The director has previously successfully relaunched the Star Trek franchise for Paramount and the Star Wars saga for Disney and now they want some of that magic brought to the DC universe. And to make it happen, we’re told the studio is offering him his choice of projects.

Sources say that Warner Bros. is leaving it up to Abrams to pick whatever appeals to him, though they’re currently hoping he’ll choose one of the three following movies: a Justice League reboot, another Superman film or Green Lantern Corps. We’ve been informed that it’s unlikely Abrams will go for all three, but it’s definitely possible that he’ll end up helming one of them.

Hayley Atwell confirms status as female lead in Mission: Impossible 7 and 8

Agent Carter herself will be tackling a very different type of mission as Hayley Atwell has confirmed her new role in the Mission: Impossible franchise, stating that she will portray the female lead in both Mission: Impossible 7 and Mission: Impossible 8.

Atwell took to Instagram to give fans this lovely message about her future and how grateful she is for the role:

“To have gone from a classical play in the west-end to an audiobook recording of a great new novel to a Disney/Marvel animation and now the female lead in a huge action franchise is the kind of variety that fuels my curiosity and keeps me learning and striving to be better and do better. I can’t wait to start sharing this adventure with you. Mostly in the form of effusive, sweaty ranting about stunt training while spontaneously vomiting with excitement/exhaustion. Lucky you.”

Paul Heig set to take the helm on ‘Dark Army’

  • HeyUGuys
‘A Simple Favour’ and ‘Bridesmaids’ filmmaker Paul Feig has taken up the mantle to write and direct the new monster movie, ‘Dark Army’ for Universal Pictures.

The story is based on an original idea from Feig but no specific plot details have been revealed. Reports suggest that characters from Universal’s classic monster library and original characters created by Feig will be included. Feig and Laura Fischer will produce through his Universal-based Feigco Productions.

After a disastrous start to the Dark Universe with the Tom Cruise led ‘The Mummy’, Universal dropped the idea of an interconnected universe. Universal are now favouring filmmaker passion that has connective tissue to Uni’s Classic Monsters legacy which will see Leigh Whannell’s ‘The Invisible Man’ kick-start the monster universe. Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions take the gauntlet to push things forward with ‘The Invisible Man’. Having Whannell on board to write, produce and direct the reboot.

Paul Feig’s Monster Movie Dark Army To Include Classic Universal Monsters

The next movie from Paul Feig, director of Bridesmaids and The Heat, has just been announced, and it isn’t what you would expect from a filmmaker best known for his work in the comedy genre. Feig is set to write and direct Dark Army, based on an original idea that he developed himself, with the project set up at Universal and set to feature some of the studio’s stable of classic monsters.

This news comes completely out of left-field, as the guy that shot to prominence making broad Melissa McCarthy comedies seems like a strange choice to tackle the likes of Dracula, Frankenstein and the Wolfman. At least Feig seems to be ready to make a big-budget studio blockbuster again after the insane levels of online backlash that followed Ghostbusters every step of the way.

10 Things That Make No Sense About Top Gun

Top Gun not only had an incredibly prolific influence on modern pop culture, but is arguably one of the most awe-inspiring aviation movies ever made. Its story of one daredevil Tomcat pilot willing to buck the Navy system for guts and glory was responsible for a title wave of recruits in flight school after 1986, as well as the propulsion of Tom Cruise into the pantheon of action movie badasses. With its heart-pounding aerial footage, attractive stars, and pounding '80s music courtesy of Kenny Loggins, it left an impression on moviegoing audiences. A much-anticipated sequel is set for release in 2020.

I Watched Top Gun with Val Kilmer at a Military Base
I'll just get this out of the way up top, but know that I'm going somewhere with this; I've never liked Top Gun. Naturally, those lovers of the 80s classic are welcome to sharpen those pitchforks now, but hear me out. I watched the movie once in my youth and a whole lot of mainstream 80s pop culture just missed the mark with me in my earlier years. I had never taken the time to revisit the 1986 fighter pilot flick that cemented Tom Cruise as a superstar and helped to put Val Kilmer on the map. But I recently revisited the movie in a pretty special setting and, admittedly, I get it now.

The Alamo Drafthouse recently put on one of its Rolling Roadshow experiences for Top Gun. Essentially, the theater chain picks a movie, then screens said movie at a location that ties into it and tapers an experience to tie it all together.

Top Gun: 5 Reasons Why It's The Most Iconic Movie Of The 1980s (& 5 Ways It Doesn't Hold Up)

Whether or not an '80s film endures as an iconic classic of its era or ages horribly with the times is arguably a matter of nostalgia. Either there are aspects about it that are continuously praised despite their firm roots in the decade, or because of them. It can depend on a variety of factors, from the cast to the storyline, to the cinematography, to the music. Top Gun is one of those films that is definitely an iconic '80s film because of its representation of the era, good and bad.

The story of a hotshot fighter pilot going against the military grain, and being celebrated for the very contrary traits that make him stick out from the rest of his peers is a timeless one. Maverick has become an enduring symbol of personal liberty, and with his performance, Tom Cruise became cemented as the action star he is today.

Brendan Fraser is “all in” for returning to The Mummy if the opportunity arises

Brendan Fraser has expressed interest in returning to The Mummy franchise and reprising his role as Rick O’Connell if the opportunity arises in the future.

Before Tom Cruise was cast in the lead of 2017’s The Mummy in Universal’s failed Dark Universe, Brendan Fraser was the leader of this franchise, starring as O’Connell in The Mummy trilogy including The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor between 1999 and 2008.

However, in an interview with CinemaBlend, Fraser discussed returning to the franchise if another entry in the series was ever on the cards at Universal, stating:

“Absolutely! Just gotta say, I know how hard it is to make that movie. I tried to do it three times, and the essential ingredient is fun. You gotta remember to have fun. So if there’s a fun way to approach it again, I’m all in.

Brendan Fraser Is All in for Another Mummy Movie as Long as It's Fun

Could we see the return of Rick O'Connell to the big screen? Should Universal Pictures decided to revisit that version of The Mummy franchise, Brendan Fraser is down to revive his ancient artifact hunting, monster dueling action hero. Now the real question becomes, could this really happen?

First, let's dig into what was said. Brendan Fraser, who is currently starring in Doom Patrol on DC Universe, was asked about revisiting The Mummy franchise, which he first starred in 20 years ago.

California Law Censoring Ages on IMDb Faces Skepticism From Appeals Court

According to IMDb, Tom Cruise was born on July 3, 1962. That makes him 57 years old. Such information is unlikely to disappear from the digital sphere based on an oral argument on Monday before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The federal appeals court is the latest to take up Ab 1687, which California lawmakers passed in 2016 in an effort to crack down on age discrimination in the entertainment industry. Under the law, a provider of online entertainment employment services must remove the age of any subscriber who so requests. IMDb, a subsidiary of Amazon.com, operates ...

The Moneychanger | 2019 Toronto Intl. Film Festival Review

Money Ain’t for Nothin’: Veiroj Turns to Political Period Caper

A common saying in Montevideo, Uruguay, meant to succinctly condense the city’s appeal and cement its eternal draw is “Because no one here is better than anybody else.” Such may be the subconscious charm to the oddball protagonist of the fifth film from Federico Veiroj, The Moneychanger, (Así habló el cambista) adapted from a 1979 novella by Juan Enrique Gruber. One of Uruguay’s leading contemporary auteurs, who landed in Cannes with his 2008 debut Acne and competed in San Sebastian with The Apostate, Veiroj seems poised for greater international acclaim with his latest, which plays like the unassuming, more realistic Latin American counterpart to something like the Tom Cruise starrer American Made (2017), a Hollywood studio flick concerning a notorious drug-runner during the Iran-Contra Affair.…

What Happens When Lead Actors Chase Supporting Oscars? Category Fraud.

As the Oscar race starts to come into focus at Venice, Telluride, and Toronto, heated debates are raging among distributors, agents, and managers about which categories their movie stars should vie for. It’s a game that Oscar strategists play to win. Increasingly, that means moving talent out of a leading role and into a supporting one.

The decision makers behind “Ford v. Ferrari” (Fox/Disney), “The Lighthouse” (A24) and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” (Sony) are all trying to figure out where to put their lead actors. Netflix has already decided to place the veteran stars of its two-hander “The Two Popes” into two categories: never-nominated Jonathan Pryce (as protagonist Pope Francis) with more screen time will be lead, with Oscar-winner Anthony Hopkins (as antagonist Pope Benedict) in supporting. And Sony is placing Matthew Rhys in lead, Tom Hanks in supporting for “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.

50+ Photos That Show the Outpouring of Love at Princess Diana's Public Funeral
When Princess Diana was tragically killed in a car crash in August 1997, it seemed as though the world was mourning just as deeply as her own family. Diana, dubbed "The People's Princess," made an indelible mark on those in the UK as well as around the globe; her funeral, which was held on Sept. 6, was watched or listened to by an estimated 2.5 billion people worldwide - making it one of the most watched events in history. In London, a crowd of nearly one million people gathered to trace Diana's coffin from Kensington Palace to Westminster Abbey to her final resting place at the Spencer family's home in Althorp.

Diana's sons, Harry and William, followed their mother's coffin alongside their father, Prince Charles, and their uncle Charles, the Earl Spencer. The visibly moved onlookers blanketed the streets with heartfelt notes, bouquets, and teddy bears, and flower petals rained down from bystanders along the procession route.

Mel Gibson Returns as Mad Max in Fury Road Deepfake Video
Mel Gibson takes over for Tom Hardy in a new Mad Max: Fury Road DeepFake video. However, it's actually Mel Gibson from around 25 years ago. The DeepFake craze continues as fans find ways to manipulate footage from different types of sources. Some are better than others and the new Fury Road video is actually pretty well done, even when compared to the recent DeepFakes of Bill Hader as Tom Cruise or Keanu Reeves in Sesame Street. Gibson first starred as "Mad" Max Rockatansky in George Miller's 1979 original, entitled Mad Max. While the movie was polarizing upon its release, it has gone on to become a classic.

While Tom Hardy did an excellent job in Fury Road, there are still some fans who can only see Mel Gibson in the role. This new DeepFake video, which is labeled part 1, is for those fans. In the video, Max Rockatansky is trying
