One of the many highlights of D23 EXPO was the update of Captain America: Civil War given by producer Kevin Feige. Also on hand for the gathering were Civil War stars Anthony Mackie and Chris Evans.

Fans who attended the Anaheim, Ca. event had the privilege of seeing footage from the film, which included appearances from Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Crossbones (Frank Grillo) and Captain America’s occasional brother-in-arms Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.).

Captain America: Civil War continues after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron as Steve Rogers (Evans) leads a new crew of Avengers in their continued fight in protecting humanity. After another international incident that involves Earth’s mightiest heroes results in collateral damage, the Avengers are now more accountable than ever before. This latest turn of events may impede the Avengers from protecting the world against a new villain while also fracturing relationships between current and past members.

Also starring Sebastian Stan (aka the Winter Soldier), Emily VanCamp (Revenge), Don Cheadle, Jeremy REnner, Paul Bettany (Vision), Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, and William Hurt, the movie is directed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier filmmakers Anthony & Joe Russo. The picture is scheduled for a May 6, 2016 release.

Feige also gave fans a little tease of Doctor Strange with a video message from Benedict Cumberbatch and concept art from the movie, which features narration from director Scott Derrickson.  Doctor Strange is set to be released November 4, 2016.

Lily Tomlin stars in Grandma as Elle Reid, a seventy-something woman whose granddaughter Sage (Julia Garner) shows up on her doorstep. Sage needs $600 for an abortion and since Elle, who recently broke up with her girlfriend (Judy Greer), is currently broke, the pair go off on a mini-road trip to collect as much cash as possible.

During their journey, Elle has unfriendly encounters with a barista (John Cho), a bookstore owner (late actress Elizabeth Peña), and a former flame (Sam Elliott). Marcia Gay Harden also stars as Elle’s daughter, who possesses the same control issues as her mother.

The movie marks Tomlin’s latest collaboration with director Paul Weitz, as the pair previously worked together on the Tina Fey/Paul Rudd comedy Admission.

Now playing in select theaters, Mistress America centers on Tracy (Lola Kirke), a sheltered college student whose life takes on a new direction when she meets her extroverted, soon-to-be stepsister Brooke (Greta Gerwig). An aspiring writer, Tracy’s new adventures with Brooke inspires her to break out of her shell and actually pen stories with a bit more depth.

Noah Baumbach, who directs the film, co-wrote the story with Gerwig (the pair previously worked together on Frances Ha and Greenberg). Their collaboration was one of the reasons why Kirke enjoyed making Mistress America.

Noah and Greta were actor-friend in the way that they write great parts for actors,” says Kirke, who also stars in the Amazon series Mozart in the Jungle. You’re not saying bogus, exposition (laden) stuff all the time. It’s more real, but it’s better than real because they are good writers and they have a way of bringing observations into a realistic tongue.”

straight-outta-compton_nws3Currently in theaters and generating a significant amount of social media buzz, STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON is a compelling musical biopic focused on the rise and fall of one of the most notorious gangsta rap groups in music history. Set in the late 1980’s in the cash strapped city of Compton, California, the film tells the story of how five intensely talented musicians/poets (EAZY-E, ICE CUBE, DR. DRE, MC REN and DJ YELLA) got together to form the core of N.W.A. (NIGGAZ WITH ATTITUDE).

Directed by F. GARY GRAY, the largely unknown cast includes COREY HAWKINS, JASON MITCHELL, NEIL BROWN JR. and ALDIS HODGE. And, in what must be one of this year’s most original casting choices, newbie O’ SHEA JACKSON JR. takes on the role of ICE CUBE who, in real life, just happens to be his father.

At a press conference held a to promote the film, JACKSON JR. joked with reporters about the extensive research he had to do to play JACKSON SR. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON is in theaters now.

deutsch-trump-joinedMaking its debut this fall on the USA Network, “Donny!” is a ’soft-scripted’ (think CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM or THE LARRY SANDERS SHOW) comedy series centered on a fictionalized version of TV personality DONNY DEUTSCH and taking satirical aim at the media, wealth and modern romance. Set for a six-episode run, the series will also feature actress EMILY TARVER.

A grad of the illustrious Wharton School and Chairman Emeritus of Deutsch Inc. (one of the world’s leading ad agencies), DEUTSCH was most recently the host of THE BIG IDEA and is currently a regular on MSNBC’s MORNING JOE.

A longtime pal of DONALD TRUMP, DEUTSCH was on the first three seasons of THE APPRENTICE and hosted TRUMP several times on THE BIG IDEA. Given that information, it should come as no surprise that when asked about TRUMP’S run for the White House at a recent TCA press conference, he was fairly candid. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

Donny!” will premieres November 2 on the USA NETWORK

man_from_uncleSet to open this weekend, THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. is a stylish reboot of the ultra-popular mid-century TV series that starred ROBERT VAUGHN and DAVID McCALLUM as combative Cold-War secret agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin. As top members of the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.), it was up to them to thwart all enemies of peace. This time around, not much has changed. We’re still in the ’60s, there’s still a Cold War and there are still enemies of peace. Directed by GUY RITCHIE (from a script he co-wrote), HENRY CAVILL and ARMIE HAMMER step into the SOLO and KURYAKIN roles respectively.

Advance word on THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. has been fairly positive and the film’s reception at SDCC was enthusiastic. Addressing the massive Comic Con crowd earlier this summer, stars CAVILL and HAMMER playfully described their on-screen characters. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. opens in theaters August 14.

rocky-horror-40th-annivIt’s with giddy antici……….pation that we received the news of the 9/22 release of the 40th Anniversary Edition of musical cult classic THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW. Based on RICHARD O’BRIEN’s stage play and originally released as a film in 1975, THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW has become a perennial ‘midnight movie’ and pop cultural phenomenon that, over the decades, has been passed down from generation to generation.

Directed by JIM SHARMAN, the film boasts an all-star cast that includes BARRY BOSTWICK, SUSAN SARANDON, MEAT LOAF and (in a career defining performance) TIM CURRY.

Packed with an abundance of ’special features’, the 40th Anniversary Edition promises to be the definitive ROCKY HORROR fan collectable.

Back in 2000, for the film’s 25th anniversary, we sat down with actor/writer/producer RICHARD O’BRIEN ,who filled us in on the genesis of ROCKY HORROR. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW 40th ANNIVERSARY EDITION will be released on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital HD by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment on September 22.

tiesthatbindposter1Premiering tonight, TIES THAT BIND is the first original scripted series from television’s family-themed UP channel. Part police procedural and part family drama, the series revolves around an Atlanta police detective trying to balance a tough professional life with being a wife and mom. Life gets even tougher, however, when duty requires she arrest her brother and, when he gets sentenced to prison, a sense of obligation dictates she take in his two teenaged kids.

Created and produced by SHERYL J. ANDERSON and STAN SPRY, the cast includes LUKE PERRY, KELLI WILLIAMS, JONATHAN SCARFE, DION JOHNSTONE, MITCHELL KUMMEN, NATASHA SCARWENER and RHYS MATTHEW BOND.

As the incarcerated brother, LUKE PERRY (another bad-boy role) isn’t in every episode but that’s okay according to series creator SHERYL J. ANDERSON who, at last week’s TCA press conference promoting the series, explained that there’s a lot more to see if the series gets a second season pick-up. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

TIES THAT BIND debuts tonight on TV’s UP channel.
