Danny Boyle didn’t exactly subscribe to the Romero school of zombies before helming the 2002 horror hit 28 Days Later. “I was on the fence about zombies, to be honest,” he told Yahoo Entertainment during a recent Director’s Reel interview. The 28 Days Later flesh eaters not only were fast, but punishingly strong, too — something that, per Boyle, had a surprising inspiration.
Michael Rooker tells Yahoo Movies how far he, 'Guardians' director James Gunn went to guard 'Vol. 2' secrets, including planting fake clues in social media
With Wonder Woman continuing her assault on the box-office record books, it’s no surprise that the film’s brain trust is already cranking away on a sequel. Although no details have been announced yet — we expect some news at Saturday’s Warner Bros. panel at San Diego Comic-Con — director Patty Jenkins and DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns are teaming up for the Amazon princess’ second solo outing. “I’m working right now on the Wonder Woman 2 script,” Johns told Yahoo Movies.
Catwoman and Wonder Woman might be on opposing sides in DC's comic books, but off screen it's a pure love fest.
As you may recall, Bruce Wayne's last Batmobile from Batman v Superman wasn't quite Kryptonian proof. That means that the upcoming Justice League movie will feature a new and improved model, and Yahoo Movies has your first look.
While nowadays she’s most closely associated with her hosting duties on The View, Whoopi Goldberg is an Oscar-winning actress with acclaimed credits like The Color Purple, The Player, The Lion King, and Ghost to her name. Goldberg was being recognized for these films and more at this weekend’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, where she was honored as a Disney Legend — and where Yahoo Movies wondered if she would ever be interested in reprising the role of Deloris Van Cartier, a lounge singer forced into witness protection at a convent, in Sister Act 3.
Disney broke the Internet Friday at the D23 Expo when it showed footage for the upcoming film Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 that revealed the sequel would unite many of its most famous animated princesses. Backstage, Yahoo Movies talked to a handful of the women behind the famous voices — Mandy Moore (Rapunzel in Tangled), Paige O’Hara (Belle in Beauty and the Beast), Anika Noni Rose (Tiana in The Princess and the Frog), Kelly Macdonald (Merida in Brave), Auli’i Cravalho (Moana), Jodi Benson (Ariel in The Little Mermaid), Irene Bedard (Pocahontas), and Linda Larkin (Jasmine in Aladdin) — about the unexpected revelation and how it all came together.
Warning: This story contains potential spoilers for War for the Planet of the Apes. Let’s start by stating the obvious: War for the Planet of the Apes is not a direct prequel to the 1968 sci-fi classic Planet of the Apes starring Charlton Heston. Instead, the new Apes, which arrives in theaters this weekend is, in the words of director Matt Reeves, “an answer” to the series of simian sci-fi films of the 1960s and ’70s.
Baby Driver is not a musical in the traditional sense. You won’t find any splashy song-and-dance numbers, even if the bold opening credits sequence teeters toward one when Ansel Elgort whimsically sashays down the sidewalk a la Travolta circa ’77. “When I pitched it initially I called it a comedy driven by music,” writer-director Edgar Wright told Yahoo Movies shortly after the film — about a young getaway driver (Elgort) who combats an ever-present ringing in his ears by constantly bumping tunes in his ear buds — exceeded all expectations its first weekend at the U.S. box office.
David Leitch has developed a reputation for his masterful orchestration of practical stunts and fight scenes — first as a stuntman, then as a stunt coordinator, and now as the shot caller behind the new Charlize Theron spy thriller, Atomic Blonde. If you’ve ever wondered how filmmakers like Leitch choreograph high-speed car chases, the director lets us in on a few secrets in our new installment of Instant Commentary (watch it above). Leitch narrates one of the film’s most pulsating sequences, which finds MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton (Theron) speeding through the streets of Berlin while baddies hunt her and the man she’s protecting (Spyglass, played by Eddie Marsan).

As Han Solo himself would say, "I've got a bad feeling about this." In a bombshell statement late Tuesday, Lucasfilm announced that Phil Lord and Christopher Miller would no longer helm the Han Solo standalone film — a project they have been developing since 2015 and a shoot that was only weeks away from wrapping.

DC’s new superhero hit Wonder Woman is an origin story no doubt, but the backstory to Gal Gadot’s Amazonian warrior actually began to unfold more than a year earlier in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The folks behind DC Comics clearly did, and according to Wonder Woman star Ewen Bremner, they wasted no time in capturing the moment.
Black Panther is back on the prowl. After a blockbuster introduction in Captain America: Civil War, Marvel’s landmark superhero, played by Chadwick Boseman, is ready to front his own feature — and, based on the new teaser trailer (watch it above), he’s going to have his clawed hands full trying to keep the peace in his homeland of Wakanda while battling the likes of Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), M’Baku/Man-Ape (Winston Duke), and Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) — villains ripped from the pages of the Panther comics. The 1-minute, 52-second clip, which premiered Friday night during Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors, gives us our initial action-packed look at Black Panther, which arrives in theaters on Feb. 16, 2018.

Actor tells Yahoo Movies that 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' is not just a superhero movie, but also could stand on its own as a high-school/coming of age movie
Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast, a two-hour-plus spectacle stuffed with a dozen songs, hundreds of characters, and new scenes that fleshed out some plot holes from the animated original, left several bits on the cutting-room floor. Now, Yahoo Movies has your exclusive first look at one of those deleted scenes featuring Emma Watson‘s heroine (watch it above). Director Bill Condon had conceived this scene to come early in the film, as Belle makes her way around her “provincial town” and interacts with its denizens.
The “Wonder Woman” film offers yet another version of the Amazon’s genesis, cherry-picking from her various comic backstories and tossing in some new details.
Talking “Ape Camp” — set up to help the actors master the movements of their simian characters — with the stars of “War for the Planet of the Apes.”
