The world lost a creative and compassionate director with Jonathan Demme’s death last night, and tons of stars who worked with him over the years shared messages of remembrance on social media today. His projects ranged from horror to concert documentaries, each film he directed unique and each memorable in its own different ways. Turns out the man was similarly unforgettable.
It’s as if Oprah burst through the doors of Universal Studios and started screaming, “YOU get a submarine, and YOU get a submarine, and YOU get a submarine!!!” Actor Kevin Layne recently revealed that the upcoming Jurassic World sequel, much like The Fate of the Furious, is going to have an “epic” submarine sequence. And I’m willing to bet it features at least one dinosaur.
Large studios are slooooowly introducing more diverse characters into their movies, and this year have been dipping a toe into the LGBT spectrum. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast featured that “exclusively gay moment,” and Power Rangers boasted history’s first gay movie superhero, but we have yet to have anything concrete. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn was asked about whether he’d consider putting a gay character in one of his Marvel movies, and his response kinda sounded like he already had.
Hey, remember that Madonna biopic? No? Good, because if you did, you’d be from an alternate, more sensical timeline where the world has already had three Madonna biopics and she’s part of her own superhero cinematic universe. But fear not, because this dark timeline of ours finally has a Madonna movie on the way, courtesy of Universal Pictures and a script that topped the 2016 Hollywood Black List.
When we last saw Luke Skywalker, he had just flipped the gray hood of his grayer robes off of his head with a flourish to reveal his extremely gray wise man beard and to fix Rey with his piercing gray eyes. Word on the street is he’ll definitely have more lines in The Last Jedi, and probably at least one more outfit. A new rumor also suggests he has some new jewelry that might have something to do with his past and Darth Vader. [Be advised: this gets into some kindaaa spoilery territory, so if you want to go into The Last Jedi blind, run away!]
It’s always fortuitous when a director and stars who made a great movie decide they’d love to all work together to make another one. Such is the case with Chris Pine, Ben Foster, and David Mackenzie, whose fantastic western homage Hell or High Water was a Best Picture nominee last year. The three have decided to reteam, this time with Netflix, for Outlaw King, which, by the title, sounds like it could be very similar to Hell or High Water. It’s anything but.
Hot off Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee is ready for his next project — which might end up being a script that’s been in the pipe for about 20 years, penned by none other than Game of Thrones showrunner David Benioff. Lee is currently in negotiations to direct Benioff’s sci-fi thriller Gemini Man for Skydance.
Free Comic Book Day is a fun time of the year for anyone even remotely interested in comics. Companies and stores pick out some select stories that customers can get for free, and some artists and writers even make comics especially for Free Comic Book Day. Luc Besson and the folks behind Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets have put together a sneak peek of their new movie in the form of a preview comic that introduces us to the characters of Valerian and Laureline and details a few of their adventures.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is going to launch a new Harry Potter franchise whether you like it or not. The next installment will dive a little bit deeper into Newt Scamander’s past and also flesh out Dumbledore’s backstory and how it all connects to the beginnings of Voldemort. We already know that Newt has a very important ex, but apparently he also has a family, as his brother is currently being cast.
