Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ Lands on Cover of Time Magazine

Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ Lands on Cover of Time Magazine

In what is sure to be a marketing coup for the film (that may not truly already need it), Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sure to be blockbuster movie, Interstellar, lands the man himself and the lead members of his cast on the cover of a legendary magazine. Nolan is joined on the Time magazine cover by Matthew McConaughey (of Lincoln commercials fame), Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) and Anne Hathaway (Catwoman/dating a dude that pulled serious fraud). Interstellar is already the most anticipated film on our website, based on a poll we’ve been running, for the rest of the year. If that is not proof of power in and of itself, I don’t know what is. Here is the cover pic.

Marvel Provides Info on ‘Captain America 3: Civil War’ and ‘The Avengers: Infinity War’ Parts 1 and 2

Marvel’s upcoming movie slate continues to be worked out. The latest news brings the new Captain America 3 film title and also the unveiling that the third Avengers movie will not actually be the last in the planned trilogy but rather a Harry Potter/Hunger Games style film that is to be divided into two movies. Shocking! That is an original idea Marvel. I’m glad you came up with it. I am sure that it is only with the intent of providing the best possible experience creatively for those behind the project and nothing to do with money. That’s refreshing. Here is the full slate now, as provided by Deadline:

Here’s Marvel’s updated release slate:

May 5, 2015 – Avengers: Age Of Ultron
July 17, 2015 – Ant-Man

May 6, 2016 – Captain America: Civil War
November 4, 2016 – Doctor Strange

May 5, 2017 – Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 (previously July 28, 2017)
July 28, 2017 – Thor: Ragnarok
November 3, 2017 – Black Panther

May 4, 2018 – Avengers: Infinity War – Part I
July 6, 2018 – Captain Marvel
November 2, 2018 – The Inhumans

May 3, 2019 – Avengers: Infinity War – Part II

Will Smith, Margot Robbie, & Tom Hardy Close On DC’s ‘Suicide Squad’ Comic Book Movie

Will Smith, Margot Robbie, & Tom Hardy Close On DC’s ‘Suicide Squad’ Comic Book Movie

With DC just releasing their slate of ten, read that 10!, movies to drop over the next six years, one of the ones planned as the follow up for David Goyer (who sees his Fury with Brad Pitt released today) to direct is Suicide Squad. And…now we have a trip of names that look ready to get on board according to Deadline. Will Smith (who has dabbled in superhero roles before in Hancock), Tom Hardy (ditto for his villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises) and Margot Robbie (who some might say just looks super). If Suicide Squad lands this trio for this “group of supervillains brought together to tackle high-risk black ops missions for the government,” it would no doubt be a coup. Stay tuned as info becomes confirmed or changes. There’s plenty of time since this isn’t slated until 2019 I think. In the interim, you can get ready to see Will and Margot in Focus which comes next year.

Sponsored Video: Just In Time, The Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 Can Rescue Men’s Faces

Despite my relatively youthful age (depending on who’s doing the asking), I believe we are in a golden age for men’s grooming. Throughout modern history, there has never been a more important time for men’s grooming and related products. Internet editorial articles are written, magazine advice columns are dedicated to it, advertising is everywhere, and products are prominent. This is largely a good thing for awareness, but can be difficult to discern quality products when they are presented. Then, a brand comes along with something new and you feel good about placing your trust in their products. The timing couldn’t be better for this as it is Movember coming up, remember?

On average, we spend 3,000 hours of our lives shaving. That’s remarkable to consider. We need something reliable to aid us in this process. To the rescue comes the Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 groomer. It’s a 4 in 1 product that shaves, trims, edges and hydrates. This fun video introducing you to the product shows some crazy ways in which the groomer can be used. With beards being in vogue, facial hair in a wide variety of styles on men has perhaps not been this popular in my lifetime. The clip shows all kinds of wild cuts, patterns, twirls, and styles that can be applied to modern men’s hair, perhaps exaggerated for effect but their point is made. The Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 is one to watch out for. Have a look at the short promo and get to grooming. You’ve got to keep it clean my friends!

This post is sponsored by Wilkinson Sword but all thoughts are The Film Nest’s.

The DC Superhero Movie Slate Continues to Expand (Flash, Green Lantern, Cyborg, More!)

 The DC Superhero Movie Slate Continues to Expand (Flash, Green Lantern, Cyborg, More!)

The DC Universe will see a massive slate of ten films planned to drop within the next 6 years. From the well known Batman reboot to Wonder Woman, Aquaman and more, DC plans to reboot other franchises that we’ve seen fail in the past, yet again. This is the way of Hollywood as we know it and will continue to see it. Smaller movies and non-franchise movies are simply not hot nor accepted for the large part. Here is the slate (via Deadline):

Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice

David Ayer’s Suicide Squad

Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot

Justice League Part 1 with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Amy Adams

The Flash starring Ezra Miller (?)

Ezra Miller is The Flash

Aquaman with Jason Momoa

Shazam with The Rock as Black Adam

Justice League – Part 2 also from Zack Snyder

Cyborg starring Ray Fisher

Green Lantern reboot (in 2020)

Mark your calendars.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt To Play Edward Snowden For Oliver Stone Movie

Joseph Gordon-Levitt To Play Edward Snowden For Oliver Stone Movie

Joseph Gordon-Levitt To Play Edward Snowden For Oliver Stone Movie

The actor that would be known as Robin will now portray a modern-day version of Russell Crowe from Michael Mann’s seminal The Insider, as Joseph Gordon-Levitt will play whistleblower Edward Snowden in an Oliver Stone penned tale. Snowden is one of the most controversial figures in politics today, having released intel on the US Government to the public. A recent The Fifth Estate film had covered potentially similar territory on a different but less controversial figure, Julian Assange of Wikileaks.

JGL is great casting for Snowden, though confidence level is not particularly high for Stone at the moment, as his star his dimmed considerably in recent years. There also should be more movies along the Snowden lines coming to theaters after this project, as word on the street suggests. What say you?

Funny Man Adam Sandler Signs Four Picture Deal With Netflix

Funny Man Adam Sandler Signs Four Picture Deal With Netflix

Funny Man Adam Sandler Signs Four Picture Deal With Netflix

In what can only be considered the sign of the apocalypse for theater chains, comedian Adam Sandler has signed with Netflix to release four movies on their streaming service. This continues to solidify Netflix’s stronghold as a player to be reckoned with when it comes to the future of filmmaking, releasing, distribution and entertainment. As Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2 is embroiled in controversy by being the first theatrical type film to release solely on Netflix (though that battle appears to be far from over), the movie and TV streaming giant now lands the usually bankable Sandler to four starring roles. That deal led Sandler to proclaim (via Deadline):

“When these fine people came to me with an offer to make four movies for them, I immediately said yes for one reason and one reason only: Netflix rhymes with ‘wet chicks.’ Let the streaming begin!”

Those all over the world seeking a laugh in the future will now be tuning in to Netflix for more over the top madness from Adam. We can only hope more films in the quality of Blended are in the offing. Rejoice!

Bryan Singer to Direct ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’, Puts Legal Issues Behind Him

Bryan Singer to Direct ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’, Puts Legal Issues Behind Him

Bryan Singer, who was in the middle of a firestorm over a participation in a sex abuse ring, now moves on to direct the next installment in Marvel’s franchise, X-Men: Apocalypse. The lawsuit of Michael Egen, brought against Singer and others for sexual abuse, was dropped last month. Singer’s team attempted to settle the suit for $100,000 but that was rejected. No terms of a new deal have been released.

Now, Singer can resume his directorial duties with a clean slate. His name and expertise have been integral to the X-Men franchise, as he helmed three previous installments over two team storylines, the most recent grossing more than 3/4 of a billion worldwide, the most successful of the bunch.
