Joaquin Phoenix), looked like a lot of fun to make. It’s why the question of “How fun was Space Camp?” came up during our recent Facebook Live interview with Thompson, the actress-turned-director whose new film The Year of Spectacular Men premiered last week at the L.A. Film Festival.
David Oyelowo is one of the most insightful ambassadors for inclusion in the film industry. As he was breaking through in Selma, the Oxford native born to Nigerian parents was in the lengthy process of developing A United Kingdom. In fact, four of his last five films (A United Kingdom, Queen of Katwe, Five Nights in Maine, and Selma) have been directed by women, and that isn’t a coincidence.

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.

The 2017 edition of the E3 Expo — the annual synapse-busting video-game show — just wrapped in Los Angeles, putting joystick jockeys up close and personal with the likes of Spider-Man, Beetlejuice, Darth Maul, and Donald Duck. Yahoo Movies toured the halls and sampled the wares, along the way discovering some sweet-looking titles that have a Hollywood hook. Here are eight worth checking out for film fans of all ages.
We noticed something interesting while perusing the IMDb credits one Jason Mantzoukas, the prolific funnyman best known for his role as Rafi, the “homeless, ethnic Santa Claus” of the TV favorite The League, as well as countless movie and TV roles. The inane emergency room M.D. he played in the 2014 comedy hit Neighbors was “Doctor Theodorakis.” And the pop-up casino tycoon he plays in the upcoming Will Ferrell-Amy Poehler comedy The House is “Frank Theodorakis.”
First teaser for Disney-Pixar's 'Cars 3' surprised fans with its ominous tone; team behind the movie says it was a matter of necessity more than design
After “Who are Rey’s parents?” perhaps the biggest unanswered question from Star Wars: The Force Awakens is how Captain Phasma, the chromed-out stormtrooper commander, managed to get off Starkiller Base before the weaponized planet exploded. As you undoubtedly recall, Phasma was tossed into a trash compactor by Han Solo, Finn, and Chewbacca. Marvel, which previously devoted a one-off comic book to how C-3PO got his red arm, will show us the presumably harrowing details of her escape in Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi— Captain Phasma.
The 23rd Los Angeles Film Festival kicks off Wednesday night with the world premiere of The Book of Henry, Colin Trevorrow‘s dramatic thriller starring Naomi Watts as a single mother whose son suspects they have a nefarious next-door neighbor. Then for another week and change Film Independent (the folks behind the Independent Spirit Awards) will roll out a wide and diverse array of indies competing for eyeballs (and prizes) at theaters in Culver City, Hollywood, Santa Monica, and downtown Los Angeles. Here are seven films debuting at the fest we’re willing to brave traffic to check out.
It’s not like Ewen Bremner has been wasting the days away. The 45-year-old Scotsman, best known to U.S. audiences for the playing the scraggy heroine junkie Spud in Trainspotting, has been working consistently since Danny Boyle’s 1996 cult classic, with credits that include Snatch, Black Hawk Down, Pearl Harbor, Match Point, and Snowpiercer. In March, he reprised the role of the down-and-out Spud in the long-awaited sequel T2: Trainspotting.
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.
Batman has the Batmobile. The Ghostbusters have the Ectomobile. And naturally, Gru has the Despicamobile.
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.
In early 2016, A24 released Texas filmmaker Trey Edward Shults’s directorial debut, Krisha, a devastating, stylistically stunning drama about an alcoholic woman’s ill-fated attempt to reconnect with her family on Thanksgiving. “Are we watching the emergence of America’s next great filmmaker?” asked Time Out London, while other reviewers likened Shults to a budding auteur in the mold of Paul Thomas Anderson. Krisha was all the more impressive given its underdog pedigree and guerrilla DNA: The project started as a failed feature-turned-short-turned-feature again, and Shults shot the entire film at his mother’s house, casting himself and other kin, led by a tour de force performance by his aunt, Krisha Fairchild, in the title role.

Patty Jenkins’ blockbuster take on the most iconic female superhero in comics — opened to a historic $103.5 million at the box office. Receiving a much quieter release on the other end of the budgetary spectrum was Band Aid, a critically acclaimed indie that arrived in select theaters with its own set of admirable credentials in the male-dominated movie business. Writer/director/producer/star Zoe Lister-Jones (Breaking Upwards, TV’s Life in Pieces) hired an all-female production crew to work on the musical rom-com.

You’d think it’d be a great party conversation starter. “By the way,” he would casually mention. “Ever seen Bambi? Of course you’ve seen Bambi. Everyone has seen Bambi. Well, I played him when I was 4.” Maybe throw in a “Biiiiiird“ for a good measure.
