In BRAVE, the latest 3D animated offering from Disney/Pixar, we’re in the Scottish Highlands of the distant past, where clan loyalty is precarious and magic still affects mortal lives. Princess Merida, voiced by Kelly Macdonald, starts out rebelling against the future laid out by her strict but loving mother Queen Elinor (voiced by Emma Thompson), but winds up fighting for her family’s survival and peace in the kingdom when a spell goes awry and turns Elinor into a bear. BRAVE doesn’t look quite like any film that’s come before, which is intentional. Director/writer Mark Andrews (who shares directing credit with …Read On »

Cameron Diaz has played everyone from kick-ass heroine in the CHARLIE’S ANGELS movies to a terrible teacher in BAD TEACHER. However, playing a pregnant woman was brand new to her in her new comedy WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING (based on the best-selling book of the same name). In the film she’s a weight loss fitness show host and a contestant on a DANCING WITH THE STARS-esque series who is paired up with GLEE’s Matthew Morrison as one of the many baby-making couples in the movie. “I was so lucky to be able to, you know, be [Matthew’s] partner …Read On »

While speaking to a small group of press after the PROMETHEUS panel at Wondercon 2012, screenwriter and producer Damon Lindelof spoke a little bit more in detail about where a PROMETHEUS 2 could go. It also shed some light on why PROMETHEUS has the “DNA” of the ALIEN films, but isn’t a really a true prequel. “If ending this movie is going to take you to the room where John Hurt is walking into that room full of eggs, we know where it’s going to end,” says Lindelof and why they didn’t do that? “Real good stories, you don’t know …Read On »

However, with writer/director Joss Whedon’s box-office superhero THE AVENGERS from Disney and Marvel, Smulders shows off her action star side as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill, running, sliding and shooting with the best of them. There are big differences in doing a weekly TV comedy series and a giant studio action feature film, Smulders notes. “It’s definitely a shift in schedule,” says Smulders. “I made it a point to do a lot of …Read On »

When you look at the history of Marvel Comics, just about everyone – even members of other long-standing teams and dedicated loners – have called themselves Avengers at one time or another. So the field is wide open for AVENGERS 2 and 3, but there is the ‘critical mass’ element; some of the team from the first film might have to sit one out to give others their screen time. After all, how many Avengers can you cram into one movie? But given the heroes we’ve already seen assemble, there are some obvious core members that really should turn up …Read On »

EDITOR’S NOTE: There have been some questions about one of the quotes in this interview. We have checked the interview tape and it turns out we missed an “if.” We have corrected the quote.  Where there are superheroes, there must be a supervillain. In writer/director Joss Whedon’s film THE AVENGERS, that supervillain is Loki, an extraterrestrial played by Tom Hiddleston, who tries to enslave the Earth with the help of a mysterious but extremely violent alien race. Hiddleston, who hails from London, England, originated the role of the adopted brother of the mighty Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth, in 2011’s THOR. …Read On »
