When Marvel announced Ryan Coogler as the director of Black Panther, it seemed like only a matter of time before he cast his lucky charm: Creed and Fruitvale Station star Michael B. Jordan. That time has come, as Jordan has officially joined Chadwick Boseman in the Wakandan hero’s solo outing, which hits theaters in 2018.
We’re sadly approaching the end of Barack Obama’s presidency, and following last night’s White House Correspondence Dinner, the first trailer for Southside With You has arrived in timely fashion. The sweet indie romance flick takes us back in time to 1989, when a young Barack met his future wife, Michelle, and took her on their very first date — well, according to her, it wasn’t actually a date (but it kind of was).
In one of The Jungle Book’s more inspired bits of casting, Scarlett Johansson voices the python Kaa, a character typically portrayed as male. Johansson's distinctive voice is perfect for the hypnotic snake, who lulls Mowgli into a precarious sense of ease as she recounts his origin story in this new IMAX trailer for Jon Favreau's re-telling of the classic tale.
One of our most anticipated films of the year is Keanu, the kidnapped kitten comedy from the brilliant minds of Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key. And one of the most anticipated events of the year (for serious film fans) is the annual Academy Awards, which airs tomorrow night. What happens when you combine the adorable kitten from Keanu with some of this year’s nominees? It’s pretty darn cute.
If you read that headline and thought, “wait, didn’t they already remake The Thomas Crown Affair back in 1999?” — don’t worry, your brain isn’t giving in to old age just yet. MGM is developing another remake of the 1968 classic, this time with Michael B. Jordan in the leading role, and this is where we begin crossing our fingers for a Creed reunion with Tessa Thompson.
So far, all the new casting additions for Fifty Shades Darker have been women, making it seem as though the sequel does nothing to disprove the idea that this is a crazy-pants world in which everything and everyone revolves around Christian Grey. If you were getting tired of looking at that guy, good news: not only has the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel added a new male cast member, but he’s going to be competing for our attention (and Ana’s too, sure).
If you still had doubts about whether Dwayne Johnson’s R-rated Baywatch movie could actually be funny, here’s some news that should dismiss them. Comedian Hannibal Buress has joined Johnson in the upcoming comedic take on the popular ’90s TV series, in which he’ll play — well, does it really matter who he’s playing? He’s going to make you laugh either way.
Last summer we learned that Joe Carnahan (The Grey, The A-Team) was interested in directing Bad Boys 3, which Sony has scheduled for a 2017 release. He was never officially confirmed for the job, but these new pre-visualization images he shared on Twitter are all the confirmation you need that Carnahan is behind the wheel on the long-developing sequel.
The O.J. Simpson trial was a cultural milestone for an entire generation. Just as our parents and grandparents remember where they were when JFK was assassinated, many of us can recall with distinct clarity where we were when Simpson notoriously fled the police in a white Bronco with a gun to his head. The media coverage was breathlessly sensational, but there is nothing sensationalized about The People v. O.J. Simpson, the flagship season of Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story, which is undoubtedly the very best thing Murphy has ever produced.
For the second year in a row, every actor nominated in all four acting categories for the Academy Awards is a white person. All 20 nominees for Best Actor and Actress and Best Supporting Actor and Actress are white people, reigniting the Twitter hashtag #OscarsSoWhite. And while many of us are comfortable in our power to merely comment via social media, there are a couple of strong voices who are fed up and ready to do something about it: director Spike Lee and actor Jada Pinkett-Smith have announced plans to boycott the Oscars this year, while the host of the 2016 awards himself has called the Academy out for their persistent negligence to nominate people of color.
