I cannot tell you how much this casting delights me. I never think of Emily Blunt as being super-British, which is ridiculous because of course she’s British and also how do you gauge the Brit-ness of someone? But I guess, as opposed to Adele or Stella McCartney or someone who is overtly at home in London, she seems more like she’s ‘from everywhere’. Full Story

I don’t think anyone actually expected The Huntsman: Winter’s War to be good, and it isn’t, so I’m not going to demand anyone spend money on this movie. But if you’re the curious type and/or you remember the charmingly bad sword-and-sorcery movies of yesterday, like Willow and Legend—or the better but still f*cking weird entries into the genre, like The Last Unicorn—then The Huntsman: Winter’s War offers a sort of nostalgia-infused trip back to a time when Hollywood liked making movies with magic and beasties, and was also doing copious amounts of blow in the bathroom. Full Story

Spider-Man 3.0 is set to start filming in a couple months and the film is officially titled Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is overtly a nod to Spider-Man’s high school roots but also seems to be a meta commentary on his joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Zendaya was the first to join Full Story
