Image
Taylor Sheridan is riding a wave of buzz this week. Having already garnered praise with screenwriting credits on critical hit thrillers like Denis Villeneuve's Sicario and David McKenzie's Hell Or High Water, his own directorial debut appears to be nothing short of a step up in caliber with Wind River following its screening at Sundance and January, and its amply-received Un Certain Regard screening at Cannes this month.
WIND RIVER is a chilling thriller that follows a rookie FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) who teams up with a local game tracker with deep community ties and a haunted past (Jeremy Renner) to investigate the murder of a local girl on a remote Native American Reservation in the hopes of solving her mysterious death.

Shared Spider-Man Universe Adaptation, SILVER & BLACK, Pins Gina Prince-Bythewood To Direct

Image
Sony Pictures landed its latest trailers just on Wednesday landing heavily on its campaign with less than a month and a half to go before its release of Spider-Man: Homecoming starring Tom Holland. I suppose that doesn't mean Sony is dropping the ball as active as they have shown themselves for the fledgling Marvel reboot that has since brought forth its own cinematic Spiderverse into the headlines with talk of an R-rated Venom and a female-driven adventure within the same universe.

Of course latter had been stirring since 2014 and just this year it was confirmed that mercenary Silver Sable and boundless burglar Black Cat would be at the center of the film. Thus, assuring the female-driven affair of Sony's forthcoming Marvel adaptation, the aptly titled Silver & Black, comes Thursday's hiring of Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love & Basketball, The Secret Life Of Bees, Freeform's Cloak & Dagger - pilot) to direct the film. She will also re-pen Christopher Yost'…

Blow Your Nintendo Cartridges And Watch The New CASTLEVANIA Series Teaser!

Image
While it wasn't too clear what we would be in for when Adi Shankar announced there would be a Castlevania series airing on Netflix this year, we learned what we could - that it was based on the classic 1986 Konami game, that it was animated and that it was coming this year.
We also knew it was a Season 1 endeavor as it was initially stated - otherwise hopefully hinting at a second season should season one bode well enough for viewers and depending on where the studio goes in its application. Well, the first official teaser arrived on Wednesday announcing a July 7 premiere date on Netflix, and in ceremonial, nostalgic fashion.

TOP GUN 2 Puts OBLIVION Helmer Joseph Kosinski In The Pilot's Seat To Direct

Image
Having directed actor Tom Cruise for his 2013 outing in sci-fi actioner, Oblivion, some would say it would make sense to make him a candidate for the long-awaited sequel to the 1986 high-flying military drama, Top Gun. As such, it now seems to be the case according to a new exclusive report from Variety thus confirming.

The news comes just a few days after Cruise laid it all out in a single quote telling Australian talk show Sunrise that it was "definitely happening". The film itself had been in the works since around 2010 or earlier, then stifled by the subsequent suicidal tragedy of director Tony Scott who helmed the original film that propelled Cruise into Hollywood stardom as U.S. Fighter Pilot, LT. Pete Mitchell, call signed "Maverick".
Skydance CEO David Ellison and Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced the original, will produce with Cruise from a script recently penned by Justin Marks that will reportedly explore the world of drone technology and fifth generatio…

Time will tell how Donald and Stephen Glover's animated foray with Deadpool will bode. For now though, a June 1, 2018 release date looms for 20th Century Fox's R-rated Marvel successor, Deadpool 2 following last year's hit with Ryan Reynolds returning to star.
Thusly, news from Deadline confirms the addition of The Strain series and upcoming Death Wish co-star, actor Jack Kesy for the likely role of Black Tom Cassidy, a noted X-Men antagonist who can manipulate and bond with plant life as well as charge energy through a shillelagh - or a wooden-like walking stick (I can hear Wade Wilson's shameless cripple jokes already.)
Josh Brolin is time-traveling supersoldier Cable while actress Zazie Beetz debuts the role of luck-bending killer Domino. Stephen Kapcic will return to voice-over X-Men member Colossus next to actress Brianna Hildebrand reprising as Negasonic Teenage Warhead. Morena Baccarin will return as Vanessa, Wilson's love interest.

The Steven Yuen-starring contained action horror adventure is finally readying a late 2017 release in North America followed by AMC's streaming platform, Shudder early next year according to Variety.
A dangerous virus, one that prevents the infected from controlling their inhibitions, is discovered in a corporate law building, the very same firm that recently cleared an infected man on murder charges. When a quarantine is issued and the building goes on lockdown, all hell breaks loose inside, while a disgruntled employee (Steven Yeun) and an irate client (Samara Weaving) must fight and even kill their way to the top to “have a word” with the corrupt executives who wronged them before time runs out. Award-wining shortfilm scribe, screenwriter Matias Caruso earns this as his debut feature with Steven Brand and Dallas Roberts also starring. While the rest…

Image

VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS Lands A Final Trailer

Image
A lifetime of sci-fi and literary appreciation, nearly four decades of filmic output, two (maybe) scripts, well over $180 million dollars and almost 15 times the visual shots used in his 1997 sci-fi, The Fifth Element, director Luc Besson now has something meaty to present the summer moviegoing crowd in Valerian: The City Of A Thousand Planets. His latest interview with Deadline gives a greater scope at the strain he now faces in comparison to his previous work and especially in the wake of technological advancements in filmmaking, notably sampled in James Cameron's 2009 hit, Avatar, and so it's worth reading in my opinion.

For now, however, we have the final trailer in our midst this week ahead of the film's July 7 release. Actress Cara Delevingne and actor Dane Dehaan make way as interstellar space agents who journey to a bustling space metropolis to investigate a looming threat that could also gravely affect the universe. Also starring are Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Haw…
