Bad News For The Upcoming Flash Movie

THR is reporting The Flash movie has lost its director.

Seth Grahame-Smith was attached to direct the super hero film starring Ezra Miller, but is leaving over "creative differences."

Seth Grahame-Smith is leaving the Warner Bros. project due to “creative differences,”

Grahame-Smith, the author and screenwriter of such works as Pride & Prejudice & Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, was to have made his directorial debut on the project that was based on the iconic DC Entertainment scarlet speedster super hero.

The project will retain Grahame-Smith’s script, which he wrote working off a treatment from Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the Lego Movie duo that were once eyeing it as a possible directing vehicle.

Flash already has a release date – March 3, 2018 – and an actor who portrays the classic hero known as "the fastest man alive" – Ezra Miller, and there is plenty of time for the studio to find a director.

Miller’s Flash, aka. Barry Allen, was introduced in a cameo appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and is now shooting Justice League Part 1, which will be released in the summer of 2017.

Grahame-Smith still remains involved in other Warners project. He is a writer on the studio’s Lego Batman Movie and is working on Beetlejuice 2.

#ThePunisher Is Returning With His Own Series On Netflix

Criminals and delinquents of Hell’s Kitchen, beware: Frank Castle will return. Just over a month after making his small-screen debut on season 2 of Daredevil, Netflix have announced that Marvel’s The Punisher is to get his very own show.

Jon Bernthal, whose performance in Daredevil won praise from both critics and fans, will reprise his role as Frank Castle, the soldier-turned-vigilante who dishes out a violent form of justice on the streets of New York..



Netflix announced the series with a 25-second teaser trailer, posted to their official Twitter feed.

Steve Lightfoot, best known for his work on NBC’s Hannibal (as well as a stint on BBC One’s Saturday night staple Casualty) has been recruited as showrunner, serving as a writer and executive producer.

This will be the sixth Marvel show to arrive on Netflix’s streaming platform, following Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Adaptations of Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders* are currently in development.

There’s no word on whether Frank Castle will show up in The Defenders (essentially the street-level version of The Avengers), but he is almost certain to make a cameo appearance.

Frank Castle has had something of a chequered history on the big screen, to put it generously, with three actors (Dolph Lundgren, Thomas Jane and Ray Stevenson) failing to make much headway.

But his unique brand of anti-heroism – first debuting in a 1974 Marvel comic – has remained popular with fans. We look forward to seeing what Bernthal (and Netflix’s well of money) can do with the character.

o Detective Work – Judy borrows a fellow police officer’s computer to conduct research, which turns out to be no small task.

Directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and produced by Clark Spencer (“Wreck-It-Ralph,” “Lilo & Stitch”), the progressive mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a melting pot where animals from every habitat live side by side and "anyone can be anything." But when new rabbit police officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives in town she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of tough, hulking animals isn't so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack an unsolved, challenging case even if it means working with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. But the case leads these two unlikely partners to an uneasy conclusion that Zootopia’s "evolved" society is being pulled apart by unseen forces determined to use fear to take control of the city by turning predators and prey against each other.

Movie Review: Green Room

The room is green and your knuckles are white.

Review by Brandon Wolfe

The Ain’t Rights, a punk band from D.C., are doing an unceremonious tour of the Pacific Northwest in their ramshackle van. The hard-luck quartet – Pat (Anton Yelchin), Sam (Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat), Reece (Joe Cole) and Tiger (Callum Turner) – find themselves playing sparsely populated gigs that net them a paltry $6 a man and are reduced to syphoning off gas to remain on the road. After a mohawked college DJ (David W. Thompson) takes pity on them, he sets them up with a gig just outside of Portland that he promises will pay a decent wage. The catch: the venue is a skinhead bar located deep in the woods. But a gig’s a gig, and the Ain’t Rights aren’t in a position to be choosy.

Green Room never really builds much in the way of characterization for any of the bandmates (Reece being something of a hothead is the closest we get), but their situation is nuanced to an almost painful degree. The filthy van, the scuzbucket clubs, the seedy patrons and the overall ignominy inherent to the touring process of a punk band struggling to build a name, all of it has a lived-in feel of authenticity. In these early scenes, the film paints a fascinatingly wart-covered portrait of life on the road. The Ain’t Rights have to be soldiering on for love of their craft because there don’t appear to be any other perks in the offing.

However, Green Room’s ultimate aim isn’t to explore the lowly path punk bands must tread. Once the Ain’t Rights arrive at the club in the woods and perform their set (opening bravely, if foolishly, with a cover of Dead Kennedys’ "Nazi Punks, F**k Off," which goes over with the crowd about as well as one might expect), Green Room quickly segues into a siege thriller. Pat returns to the green room to retrieve Sam’s phone and witnesses the immediate aftermath of a murder, with a young woman lying dead on the ground with a knife in her head and her friend Amber (Imogen Poots) sobbing helplessly on the sidelines. The band is locked inside the green room at gunpoint while the bouncer Gabe (Macon Blair) contacts the club’s owner, Darcy (Patrick Stewart), to get a handle on the situation. Soon, the band manages to overpower their captor and use the green room as a stronghold away from Darcy’s encroaching red-laced acolytes.


From there, Green Room remains commendably tense for the duration of its running time. The Ain’t Rights and Amber have to struggle to figure out how to survive while Darcy and his men attempt to keep the situation contained. As the band members slip in and out of the green room in a series of escape attempts, the film is often unbearably nerve-wracking. Most interesting is the film’s brutality. The wounds sustained on both sides are sickeningly graphic, and the film freely kills off major characters in joltingly cavalier ways. Green Room is at its best when it’s at its nastiest.

The drawback is that the film is often very confusing, both in its staging and in the actions of its characters. The geography of the club outside of the green room is never neatly laid out, and our heroes frequently seem to have too much of a run of the place. If Darcy had simply left armed guards in the hallway outside of the green room, the situation would be resolved in his favor instantly, yet he and his men base themselves outside the building for the duration of the film, sending pit bulls inside at regular intervals. Darcy’s planning and the Ain’t Rights’ seat-of-the-pants improvising often don’t make a great deal of sense. Near the end of the film, for instance, our surviving heroes hatch a plot involving head-shaving and face paint that never makes much sense as depicted. Also, when the internal schism among the skinheads (most of which, save for Darcy, have hair) that led to the initial murder is revealed, it arrives with a half-hearted shrug.


Stewart is the big draw here, playing far against type as a villainous white supremacist, and he brings his usual gravitas to the role. Yet aside from one tossed-off epithet, Stewart never really embraces the role the way you want him to. Darcy never seems nearly as venal and frightening as he should. Stewart doesn’t allow himself to get ugly enough to really set the character apart from his house style. He remains stately and dignified in a role that really doesn’t require those qualities. He plays it safe, leaving you wishing Ben Kingsley had been deployed here in Sexy Beast mode.

Yelchin does fine work as a soft-spoken sort forced to toughen up fast, but if there is a standout in Green Room, it’s probably Poots’ Amber. Coming from a much rougher background than the band, she is the only one with a genuine tough side on display, and winds up becoming the quick-witted, merciless brains of the group. Poots infuses the role with a worldliness and intelligence that marks her as an intimidating force in spite of her size. She’s not in a punk-rock band, yet she’s the only person around who seems in any way punk-rock.

Alicia Vikander Is Lara Croft

THR is reporting Lara Croft has been found.

Alicia Vikander has signed on to star in Tomb Raider for MGM, Warner Bros. and GK Films.

The movie project, which has Roar Uthaug (The Wave) on board to direct, will tell the story of a young and untested Croft fighting to survive her first adventure.

MGM and Warner Bros. are co-producing the film, with MGM overseeing production. They acquired the rights from GK Films, who had previously purchased the film rights in 2011 from Square Enix Ltd.

Graham King is serving as producer.

Angelina Jolie famously starred in the two previous Tomb Raider movies, 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and 2003's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, which established her as a bankable, franchise-carrying international star.

Vikander, who won an Oscar for her turn in The Danish Girl, is hoping for a similar path, and the Tomb Raider movie gives the actress her own franchise after proving her salt in acclaimed dramas.

Last year was a turning point for Vikander, who won an Oscar for her performance in The Danish Girl while also starring in Ex Machina, Burnt and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. This year she will be seen in the drama The Light Between Oceans as well as the Matt Damon action pic Jason Bourne.

BTS With @Jon_Favreau See How The Jungle Book Came To Life

Go behind the scenes with director Jon Favreau and see how The Jungle Book was brought to life with this new tech featurette.



THE JUNGLE BOOK is now in theatres!

Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong'o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela. “The Jungle Book” seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world. The wild adventure swings into theaters in 3D on April 15, 2016.

Movie Review: #MothersDayMovie

A fully stacked ensemble casts takes you through multiple versions of one very eventful Mother’s Day.

Review by: Erika Ashley



Across Atlanta several families prepare for the upcoming Mother’s Day holiday in a variety of ways. One mother, Sandy, is surprised to find out her ex-husband has remarried, very recently in fact, and she struggles with the idea of sharing her two sons with a young new step-mom on her specialist day. A father and widower, Bradley, gears up to face the first Mother’s Day without the mother of his two daughter’s and he too struggles with the complication the holiday brings. Sandy’s friend, Jesse, feels an inner conflict as the day approaches and another year passes with her mother and father out of the picture. Her lesbian sister, Gabi, seems to be just fine with leaving the relationship as it is because she will be celebrating with her wife and adopted son.


A television host and HSN spokesperson, Miranda, goes about her daily life pushing products and entertaining her endearing fans when this Mother’s Day brings a surprise from her past. A young couple, Kristin and Zach, go back and forth on the topic of marriage now that their daughter is born. However, Kristin continues to put off Zach’s proposal attempts because she has to come to terms with who she is as an individual first. Although each family deals with their own complications revolving around Mother’s Day they all intertwine in some way.


This film was mostly genuine and funny, but at times frustrating and overdrawn. The ensemble cast was full of seasoned romantic comedy actors including Kate Hudson and Julia Roberts, but the true stars of the film were Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis. The two were independently hilarious and when they came together on screen sparks flew. However, Sudeikis did seem to overact a bit during his grieving husband scenes which came across as him trying a little too hard and disingenuous. The acting from Julia Roberts and Kate Hudson fell flat and it was almost as if they were just going through the motions.


Experienced Director, Garry Marshall, pulled another multi-plot film just like his two previous films “Valentine’s Day” and “New Year’s Eve” that weave several characters jumping back and forth from one story to another. In this film each storyline relies on the other but two out of the four separate plots could have been standalone films. The story revolving around Sandy (Jennifer Aniston) and Bradley (Jason Sudeikis) and how they interacted would have been an adorable romantic comedy with its happy and sad moments but a “Happily Ever After” ending. The plot lines for Zach (Jack Whitehall) and Kristin (Britt Robertson) that intertwines with Miranda (Julia Roberts) and even the sub-plot between Jesse (Kate Hudson), her sister Gabi (Sarah Chalke) and their mother Flo (Margo Martindale) is subpar at best. They are both rather convoluted and not really all that funny. Garry Marshall has been known in his recent career to take on these multilayer epic rom-coms and even though they are jam packed with A & B-list actors this film was decent. Not good, not great, but passable.

On top of the constant multi-story whiplash that leaves viewers wanting more from one story or the other, some of the main characters are completely over the top stereotypes. Granted most of the cast is Caucasian aside from Jesse’s husband, Russell (Aasif Mandavi) and her mother-in-law Sonia (Anoush NeVart) there were several outright racist jokes and they were meant to be as such. The characters even pointed out the racist jokes but what was most shocking is those were the jokes that got the most laughs.


Outside of the hokey comedy another surprising element was the fact of this film being about mothers and there were many unattended children obviously not being watched after. For example, when the Jesse’s son and nephew were playing out in the front yard – ALONE and their grandmother Flo approaches the older of the two boys asks her to watch the baby so he can use the restroom and then he takes off. An ultimate stranger they had just met started to play with the baby, but it could have been literally anyone that comes up to these kids and their mothers were nowhere in sight. Even Kristin allows her baby to be in a bar multiple times as she works there but then she does little to actually care for her child as well. It’s kind of hilarious and also completely absurd at how awful these mothers are in a film about celebrating Mother’s Day! 

Overall, is this film worth the hype and heavy hitting names on the posters? Probably not. Should you take your mom to see it in theaters on Mother’s Day? Sure. But, I would wait until it comes out on Redbox or On Demand and rent it. Instead spend the money and two hours doing something worthwhile with your mom.

Mother’s Day is rated PG-13 for language and some suggestive material and has a 118-minute runtime.
