‘Doctor Strange’ Footage: We’ve Seen 15 Dizzying Minutes of Marvel’s Mystical Superhero Film

Like Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man before it, Doctor Strange is kind of a wild card in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — the titular hero doesn’t have the same name recognition among general audiences as, say, Captain America. But Marvel is using that to their advantage and taking some bolder creative risks with the Sorcerer Supreme’s solo outing. At a special preview event, the studio screened 15 dizzying minutes of IMAX footage from the upcoming film, and it’s far weirder and wilder than those trailers are letting on.

‘Bad Moms’ to Get ‘Bad Dads’ Spinoff, aka Every Other Comedy Ever Made

Looks like the studio behind Bad Moms is creeping in on Wes Anderson’s territory: STX Entertainment is reportedly developing a spinoff to this summer’s hit comedy, this time focusing on not-so-great dads. Let’s be honest, though — Bad Dads could describe Wes Anderson’s whole filmography (there’s even an Anderson art tribute show and book with that title), but it could also easily describe most studio comedies.

15 Big Changes ‘The Girl on the Train’ Made From Page to Screen

A year before Paula Hawkins’ debut novel hit the stands, Universal secured the rights to what was sure to be the next ‘Gone Girl’ — a mystery thriller about three women and the disappearance that ties them together. Sure enough, ‘The Girl on the Train’ became a bestseller, and the film adaptation, which stars Emily Blunt, Haley Bennett, Rebecca Ferguson and Justin Theroux, hits theaters this weekend. As is typically the case, there are some notable differences between the book and film, but just how many changes were made from page to screen?

‘Jumanji’ Set Photo and Video Reveal the Difficulties of Movie Making (And Doritos)

It’s hard not to get a little bit excited for the new Jumanji movie — with a cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan, they could be making a live-action movie about Thomas the Tank Engine and we’d still watch it. So while we wait for the first official trailer, Johnson and Co. have been keeping us up to date with a steady stream of behind-the-scenes photos and videos, the latest of which offers some insight into the difficulties of filming a big budget movie in Hawaii (spoiler: it’s not that difficult).

Keanu Reeves Is Dressed For Success in ‘John Wick: Chapter Two’ First Look

If you haven’t been paying attention to Twitter for the last hour (or if you’re an enlightened soul who manages to function without an account), then you may have missed the first official photo from John Wick: Chapter Two. Yeah, Keanu Reeves is thinking he’s back, and this time…he’s bringing his tailor. In all seriousness, we could use more action movies about sharp-dressed assassins with great hair who love dogs.

‘Idiocracy’ Is Returning to Theaters Just in Time For the Election

We’ll never get to see that series of 2016 election ads starring Terry Crews, but there’s still good news for fans of President Camacho and Mike Judge’s Idiocracy: The 2006 cult classic comedy is celebrating its 10th anniversary by returning to theaters this October, just one month ahead of the presidential election — you know, just in case you need a little boost of humor (or a scarily prescient reminder) before you head into the voting booth.

Jared Leto to Work His Method Mayhem on Andy Warhol Biopic

In news that will either delight or horrify you (there seems to be no in between when it comes to Jared Leto), the actor with this year’s most controversial method approach is turning his attention to Andy Warhol for a new biopic about the iconic pop artist / photographer / Studio 54 fixture. And if you’re not particularly thrilled about that news, perhaps this will help: Wolf of Wall Street writer Terence Winter is developing the script.

First ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Teaser Invites You to Slip Into Something That’s Probably a Lot Less Comfortable

Hey, remember that brief, wacky moment in pop culture history when Fifty Shades of Grey dominated (sorry) the media and resulted in several awkward phone calls with your mom? Yeah? Good. You might also remember that we still have two sequels to look forward to based on E.L. James’ trilogy of erotic novels, and the teaser for the first, Fifty Shades Darker, has arrived along with a new poster that cordially invites you to the premiere of the first full trailer.

‘Gold’ Trailer: Matthew McConaughey Is Bald and Hunting For Gold

Gold is the title of Matthew McConaughey’s new movie — it also happens to be the color of the Oscar statue, which is fitting, as the latest effort from filmmaker Stephen Gaghan (Syriana) looks like it could make the beloved actor an awards season contender once again. The first trailer for the holiday season release has arrived, touting a bald and bold McConaughey as man desperate to strike it rich. Spoiler: He does, but that treasure comes at a cost (insert sad trombone).

Shia LaBeouf Says Warner Bros. Vetoed His ‘Suicide Squad’ Role

In a really fascinating profile published by Variety today, actor and occasional performance artist Shia LaBeouf addresses a few of the more controversial aspects of his career (his arrest, drinking problems, etc.) and discusses working with some of the biggest directors in Hollywood (Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg). But one of the most intriguing revelations from the article is that LaBeouf almost starred in Suicide Squad — until the studio (and some script changes) got in the way.
