The 3 Ladies Up For Captain America's Love Interest In Winter Solider

The cast of Captain America: The Winter Solider is growing. Chris Evans already has a new partner in Anthony Mackie (Falcon), and now the hunt is on for his leading lady. Here are the three actresses who have caught Marvel's eye.


The New York Post is reporting that Anna Kendrick (The Twilight Saga, 50/50), Felicity Jones (The Tempest, Chalet Girl) and Imogen Poots (Jane Eyre, Fright Night) are front-runners for the Captain America sequel. What role are they fighting for? Marvel is keeping that a secret, but many assume it's Sharon Carter.

Sharon is the niece of Margaret "Peggy" Carter (Hayley Atwell), who appeared in the first Captain America. Like her aunt, Sharon is also a love interest for Steve Rogers.

Anna Kendrick has appeared in The Twilight Saga, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, 50/50 and, most notably, 2009's Up in the Air. Her performance as Natalie earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

Felicity Jones is a British actress who's getting serious buzz in the States. In 2011, she earned critical acclaim for her performance in the drama Like Crazy. She also gets bonus points for appearing on an episode of Doctor Who ("The Unicorn and the Wasp").

Imogen Poots is the youngest of the group. Most of us first saw her as Young Valerie inc V for Vendetta or Tammy in 28 Weeks Later. Since then, she's been consistently working her way up the Hollywood ladder.

Who has what it takes to pick up where Atwell left off?

Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters April 4, 2014.

HIT AND RUN Review. Don't Run To See It.

HIT AND RUN Review
By: RAMA

Was RAMA blown away by this film?

A very weak car chase movie, but a an entertaining romantic comedy, that’s what HIT AND RUN is to me and if the marketing sells it more of a car chase movie than rom-com, don’t get fooled!


This is Dax Shepard’s labor of love, being the co-director of the project along with David Palmer, not to mention that most of the relationship dilemmas in this movie were taken from some of the situations that real life couple Shepard and his co-star Kristen Bell have gone through, plus Shepard, much like his character Charlie Bronson, is also a car nerd, so HIT AND RUN doesn’t get more personal for Shepard than that. This is his baby and it’s not a complete fail..


From the producer of Wedding Crashers – written and directed by and starring comic talent Dax Shepard (NBC’s “Parenthood”), HIT AND RUN is the story of Charlie Bronson (Shepard), a nice guy with a questionable past who busts out of the witness protection program to drive his fiancĂ© (Kristen Bell) from their small home town to Los Angeles so she can land the job of a lifetime. Their road trip grows awkwardly complicated when they are chased by the feds (led by Tom Arnold)… and increasingly dangerous, when Charlie’s former pals, a band of gangsters (led by Bradley Cooper) enter the fray.


I guess my mistake was hoping that I’d get the same excitement that such classics as Bullit and French Connection could provide, I kept forgetting that HIT AND RUN was made with a low budget and under time constraints and so they worked with whatever they could get their hands on and that includes reaching out to circle of friends to see who can help play some of the small supporting roles. If you thought THE MUPPETS last year was full of cameos, wait til you see HIT AND RUN, the number of familiar faces was countless, after a while it can get you to wonder if celeb cameos is all that this movie’s got going for itself.



Real life couple Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell don’t need to try too hard to convince us, they pretty much recreate their own argument and you can definitely sense from the start why one is attracted to the other. Dax’s character embodies a man who’s willing to go the distance for the love of his life, his only weakness is the unwillingness to share much of himself and his past in fear that the love of his life might not like what she sees. Bell’s character is head over heels for Charlie (Dax) but as the engine rolls on, she soon finds out that love is more than just laughs and cuddly moments, it’s also about knowing the real person and that can get overwhelming, the question is will she stick around after finding out the truth about Charlie.
I think Kristen is an underrated actress, there are things about her that I think are working against her because I think she’s genuinely a brilliant actress who can tackle emotional roles but her association with such movies as Forgetting Sarah Marshall and this, may hinder her from proving herself even more and showing the world what she’s truly capable of.
I have mad respect for Dax Shepard, though HIT AND RUN is not perfect, he’s one of those actors who’d tell themselves, ‘I’m going to write my own material and I’m going to make my own movie, damnit’ instead of sitting around waiting for that big break that may or may never come.

The comedy in HIT AND RUN is great, pay close attention to some of the conversations that are going on in this movie because it might make you wonder why Quentin Tarantino hasn’t thought of them before.
I don’t think Tom Arnold is a funny guy, I’ve seen his stand up and it’s just lame, made me wanna cry instead of laugh, but Tom Arnold saying the lines from Shepard’s script, is a funny Tom Arnold. As the bumbling but lovable Marshall, Randy, Arnold nails it.
Another treat to watch is Bradly Cooper who plays the villain, this is probably his funniest role since Phil from The Hangover.
I don’t think the romantic comedy part of this movie is forced, female audiences would find themselves surprised and thankful that they went and watched this, if any I think HIT AND RUN doesn’t do enough to satisfy the male audiences, seeing that the chase sequences were done in safe closed course environments and it’s funny that Shepard is the only one with the cool car while others would have to drive station wagon, cop car and a van, hardly seems like a fair competition to me.

GRADE: 3 out of 5

Star Wars: Detours First Trailer & Clips

We've been waiting for ages to finally get a glimpse of Seth Green's upcoming Star Wars cartoon comedy show. Green and his crew just unveiled the first footage at Star Wars Celebration VI, and we've got four clips for you to see right here!


Titled Star Wars: Detours, the series will be set between Episodes III and IV, and will feature a large cast of well-known characters as well as new characters. As Green promised, it's CG-animated, and it's got a very exaggerated style (check out Leia's GIGANTIC hair buns). The tone for much of it seems similar to the spoofs Green and company pulled off on Robot Chicken, though not as raunchy. Among the gags: the Emperor and Darth Vader telling everyone the Death Star's actually a mall while it's still under construction, Han and Chewie coming off like an old married couple and Leia acting like a desperate-for-attention celebutante.



Among the talent coming to the show, both as actors and writers, are Robot Chicken alums like Matt Seinreich, Abraham Benrubi, Breckin Meyer and Donald Faison, along with special guests like Joel McHale and Chuck's Zachary Levi, who will voice the new character Biff Tarkin, Grand Moff Tarkin's son.

We don't know yet when (or where) we'll be able to see the show in full, but sometime next year seems likely.

Brad Pitt & Denzel Washington Going To A "Candy Store"

Oscar-winning writer-director Stephen Gaghan is ramping up his next film — and he's attracting interest from major actors.


Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Gaghan will direct Candy Store, a crime thriller he also wrote, and that Brad Pitt and Denzel Washington are in early talks to star. The film is set up at Lionsgate.

No deals are done, and sources described the discussions to be in the nascent stage. But if the film comes together with those stars, it would mark Gaghan's most high-profile directing project since 2005's Syrianna. Gaghan won a Academy Award for writing the Steven Soderbergh-directed Traffic in 2000. He also co-wrote the screenplay for next summer's Will Smith sci-fi adventure After Earth.

Candy Store is described as a "two-hander" crime thriller with meaty roles for the two main characters. A highly trained, deep cover operative starts his life over in Brooklyn as a beat cop only to discover the global organization he was dedicated to fighting is also operating in his new backyard. Jamie Foxx was said to be interested in one of the roles as well.

Videodrome Remake On It's Way

Celebrated commercials helmer Adam Berg is in talks to make his feature directing debut on Videodrome, the remake of the 1983 David Cronenberg-directed film that is set up at Universal Pictures. Ehren Kruger scripted the remake and is producing with partner Daniel Bobker.



Berg won the Film Grand Prix at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival for his Carousel ad for Philips, and has helmed numerous other commercials and short films. He is represented by CAA, Management 360 and attorney PJ Shapiro. Reno Malo will be exec producer.

James Woods starred in the original Videodrome as the head of Civic TV Channel 83. He makes his station relevant by programming Videodrome, a series that depicts torture and murder that transfixes viewers. When Kruger and Bobker set it up at Universal, they planned to modernize the concept, infusing it with the possibilities of nano-technology and blow it up into a large-scale sci-fi action thriller.

Along the way Gus reconnects with Johnny (Timberlake), a rival scout who has a friendly history with Gus, the man who scouted him when he was a baseball player.

Adebisi Joins The Cast Of THOR Sequel The Dark World

Team Marvel, which is still in the midst of making Thor sequel The Dark World, has snagged former Mr. Eko on Lost, Simon Adebisi on Oz and Nykwana Wombosi in The Bourne Identity, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje to play not one but – count ‘em – two roles in the movie.


The actor, who has also appeared in the likes of G.I. Joe, Faster, The Thing and Unstoppable, is on board to initially play Algrim the Strong, the toughest of the Dark Elves ruled by Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) who fight Thor and his family.

But when Malekith betrays him, Algrim is injured in battle, only to be healed and turned into Kurse, a being who is described as twice as strong as Asdgard’s finest. How much of the comic lore surrounding him will translate to the screen has yet to be seen, but from the sounds of his dual role, they may be staying true to his tale.

Alan Taylor is calling the shots even now in London, with Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba, Jamie Alexander, Stellan Skarsgard, Rene Russo, Tom Hiddleston and, as reported yesterday, Kat Dennings all reprising their roles.

First Carrie Images Of Chloe Moretz & Julianne Moore

These new stills from Screen Gems' update of Carrie feature our first official glimpses of Carrie's mother, the God-fearing Margaret White, and of course of her daughter, Carrie herself, as essayed by Chloe Grace Moretz.

It's a fairly standard image of Margaret, in gauzy bride-of-Christ white, although Moore is undoubtedly great casting for the role. But what's interesting here is that Screen Gems have taken the bull by the horns (or the blood bucket by the handle) and decided to lead with the Brian De Palma film's most famous image: Carrie drenched in gore at the high school prom (see below for the Sissy Spacek version). It's a brave decision, and one that's perhaps designed to immediately get those comparisons out of the way. Perhaps future reveals will focus on what's different about the new film, rather that what's the same.

See images after the Jump...


Director Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don't Cry) says she's, reasonably enough, gone back to the original Stephen King novel for inspiration. But the story has also been modernised. "You have to do that," says Pearce, "in order to bring any great piece of work written in one era [in this case the 1970s] into the next."

Josh Brolin Is Crazy For The Storm

It's just a couple of weeks since the announcement that Sean Penn would likely direct the film, and now here come the casting stories. First in line for Crazy For The Storm is Josh Brolin, as surf and ski guru Norman Ollestad Sr.

The film is based on a memoir by Ollestad's son, also called Norman. The book covers his childhood with his demanding but charismatic father amid the surf cultures of Malibu and Mexico in the 1970s. But there's also the small matter of the plane crash in 1979 that deposited them both 9000ft up in the San Gabriel Mountains in a blizzard, causing the then 11-year-old Norman Jr to draw on all his inherited outdoorsman skills to survive.

Interestingly, this isn't the first surfing patriarch that Penn has considered committing to film: he was supposed to be producing (and possibly starring in) a biopic of surf-camp pioneer Dorian "Doc" Paskowitz a couple of years ago. Crazy For The Storm is obviously coming from a slightly different angle, but it's recognisably similar territory, once again dealing with characters on the fringes of society that Penn dealt with so brilliantly in Into The Wild.

Crucial to the new film will be the casting of Norman Jr, and we're saying the production could do a lot worse than Conan The Barbarian's Leo Howard (despite his being slightly too old for absolute fidelity). Neither Brolin or Penn are quite officially signed on yet, but if all goes to plan, shooting will start in the spring, once Brolin is finished with Spike Lee's Old Boy.

The Rocketeer To Relaunch

Now that Disney’s troubled movie studio is under new management, our spies tells us that, curiously, one of the first properties to be developed for a feature film is a reboot of 1991’s thirties-set adventure film, The Rocketeer.

We say ‘curiously’ because while the property was actually a flop at the time, its similarity to the current Disney-Marvel cash cow Iron Man is more than a little striking: In it, a racing pilot named Cliff Secord (Billy Campbell) discovers a rocket-pack prototype in his stunt plane, hidden there by the gangsters who stole it from Howard Hughes; Secord tries it out, and, like Tony Stark, quickly discovers that a) flying without a plane is SO cool, and b) you gotta fight the bad guys (including Timothy Dalton, who two years prior had starred as James Bond for the second time) and save the girl (a luminous Jennifer Connelly).

While both properties are based on comic books, Iron Man actually arrived on the scene first: The Rocketeer was first published in 1982 by tiny (and now, sadly, defunct) Pacific Comics, and was conceived by artist Dave Stevens as an homage to the serial action heroes of the thirties. By the time Disney released The Rocketeer in 1991, Pacific had already been liquidated for half a decade. Stevens lost a battle with leukemia in March 2008 – just two months before Marvel’s adaptation of Iron Man was released.

We’re told the studio will soon be meeting with various writers to come up with a take. But its reappearance at Disney now, of course, begs the question: Why? What is new studio chief Alan Horn up to? It could be an early sign that the former Warner Bros. chief doesn’t just view his new job at Disney Studios as that of a mere portfolio manager, content to make sure acquisitions like Marvel, The Muppets, and Pixar, which keep churning out their own properties as Disney’s brand withers. That would be good news, indeed.

And Here Is The First Poster For Steven Spielberg's Lincoln

We have the first poster for the upcoming film Lincoln. The film was directed by Steven Spielberg, starring Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln and Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln.

Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Spader, Hal Holbrook and Tommy Lee Jones, “Lincoln” is produced by Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, with a screenplay by Tony Kushner, based in part on the book “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln” by Doris Kearns Goodwin.

Red 2 Teaser Poster

Though the cameras have yet to even begin rolling, director Dean Parisot and his Red 2 marketing team wants to make sure we know that the sequel is coming. But with no footage to show, they’ve had to resort to a teaser poster for the movie,

Red 2 features the return of Bruce Willis’ retired-but-still dangerous operative Frank Moses, along with pals Marvin Boggs (John Malkovich), Victoria (Helen Mirren) and sort-of girlfriend Sarah Ross (Mary- Louise Parker).

This time around, the aging heroes must deal with the threat of new enemies in Europe, which requires them to team back up. Fresh faces (well, sort of) this time around include Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Neal McDonough and Byung-hun Lee.

Ellen DeGeneres To Return To Finding Nemo 2

Ellen DeGeneres is in negotiations to reprise her role in Disney/Pixar's planned Finding Nemo sequel.

Assuming the deal comes together, DeGeneres would voice Dory, a blue tang fish who was suffering from short-term memory loss in the 2003 original film.

Over the years, DeGeneres has not been quiet about her desire to see a Nemo sequel come to fruition, making multiple mentions on her popular syndicated talk show. Writer/director Andrew Stanton (John Carter), who wrote the 2003 film with DeGeneres in mind and co-directed it, is set to return for the follow-up. Victoria Strouse is writing the script and Lindsey Collins is producing. A 2016 release date is projected.

The original, which won the Academy award for best animated feature, is still the highest-grossing orignal Pixar movie, earning $868 million to date worldwide,

The first Nemo, like several Disney properties, is getting a 3D update. The Pixar classic will be rereleased in theaters next month.

The news comes a few weeks before DeGeneres’ long-running talk show returns for its 10th season. The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which delivered 3.2 million viewers last season, is the most lucrative daytime talk show currently on TV, according to Kantar Media.

The Huntress Added To CW’s Arrow

The CW’s Arrow is getting another classic DC Comics character — and Stephen Amell’s vigilante is getting a potential love interest.


The highly anticipated fall action-drama series is adding The Huntress for a multi-episode arc. Not only is the character coming to the show, but EW.com has also learned the role has just been filled: The Huntress will be played by Aussie TV actress Jessica De Gouw.

Introduced in 1947, The Huntress is the star of her own DC Comics series and there’s been a few iterations the character over the years. Arrow will feature the modern-era version whose alias is Helena Bertinelli. She’s the daughter of a mafia boss who vows revenge after her family is murdered. The comics had The Huntress prowling Batman’s backyard of Gotham, but we expect Arrow to keep Bertinelli close to Oliver Queen’s Starling City.

Here’s the official character description: “Helena is a potential love interest for Oliver Queen; a fellow vigilante, set on destroying her father’s organized crime empire. But Helena’s blind pursuit of revenge will put her on a collision course with the Arrow.” Expect The Huntress to show up around episode six.

The Bourne Legacy Review By:Ursula

The Bourne Legacy Review
By:Ursula

Look who's back with another review. The one and only Ursula.


The Bourne Legacy had potential, but got lost in a lot of political back and forth. The beginning of the movie is a drag. The effort to catch the audience up on the previous movies becomes repetitive and unnecessary. Aaron Cross, (played by Jeremy Renner) starts out alone, climbing and scaling rocky snowy covered mountains. Apparently, he has been banished for wrong doing. All this is going on while politics unravel back at Treadstone headquarters. Aaron Cross is linked to Dr.Shearing (played by Rachel Weisz) by her testing blood samples for her scientific research. Her tests are on the effect the pills had on him and others in the program. It was rough sitting through the first half of the movie, other than a doctor going postal in a high security lab, because the scenes were not captivating and interesting. The characters are what carried the film. Both Aaron and the Dr.Shearing had depth and integrity. Being that they were not a large part of the first half of the movie caused the beginning to be weak and boring.


Aaron Cross, a soldier that has a lower IQ when entering the armed forces and is allowed in with a falsified higher IQ. He is recruited into this “super soldier” program and becomes addicted to the drugs that raise his IQ and physical abilities. He comes to Dr. Shearing’s rescue, to obtain the virus he needs to sustain his improved IQ. I liked Cross, he had heart and tenaciousness. I could not help having a heartfelt compassion for his character. He had a willingness to supersede what he was dealt with the help of Dr. Shearing, and is allowed to get a second chance at life. He repeatedly engages in conversation and remains friendly with strangers. I had the sense that the potential of his newly found “super powers” opened up a whole new world to him that he desperately needed to explore. While Cross is interesting, it is a shame that they did not go into more back story of him in the beginning of the movie. I would have liked to have gotten to know him and the doctor more than the all of the political background we had to suffer through.

Dr. Marta Shearing is intense and passionately in love with science. Shearing has no clue what her research is really being used for or how it is affecting the soldiers they are augmenting. She only wants to help for the better of society. She plays the damsel with perfection and is scared and freaked out for most of the film. I found her ability to keep up with a trained assassin to be unbelievable. This whole dynamic always fascinates me in films. Shearing is a doctor and yet able to run right alongside this guy that no one can seem to catch, not even other trained assassins’. I still really like her because she delivers a heartfelt performance. Weisz really can act and has an adorable baby face. Her famous pout manages to charm at all the right times, and bad ass when necessary. The doctor is so convincing in trying to right her previously unknown wrongs and help Cross to the best of her ability. She also knows that her survival depends on him remaining at his best. If he loses his IQ abilities then he will not be best suited to protect her. She is not left with many choices considering the FBI wants her dead.



There are so many rough patches that imply the editing team may have just snoozed through this film. They got a little sloppy on the lengths of scenes and on the story. They could have shortened the chase scene as well as the beginning.

Overall this movie had a few good action scenes but not enough to make it a Bourne movie. It was a bit tedious when it was not necessary, and they focused too little on the development of the characters to the audience. This film indeed had potential. However, it did not compare to my experiences seeing the other Bourne movies in the theater.
