See the star-studded cast of Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Post’ in this first look image

Steven Spielberg directing The Post.

While films such as The Florida Project, Call Me by Your Name, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, top awards season predictions lists, many awards season columnists have also made room Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread and Steven Spielberg’s The Post. The problem with that? Nobody has seen either of those movies yet.

That’s not to say we shouldn’t include them in our predictions, though. After all, that’s exactly what these lists are, right? Predictions, guesses, forecasts, projections. And, while Anderson seems to have the lesser chance of being destined for awards season glory in the coming months, we have all the reason in the world to believe Spielberg, and the timeliness of his latest effort, will set the filmmaker, who hasn’t won an Oscar since 1999, on the right track.

The Post, a star-studded cinematic affair starring the likes of Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Bradley Whitford, Carrie Coon, Tracy Letts, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bob Odenkirk, Alison Brie, Zach Woods, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, and Jesse Plemons, was written by Liz Hannah and Josh Singer and tells the true story of how a group of journalists at The Washington Post made the brave decision to publish the classified Pentagon Papers in 1971.

Unfortunately, our first look at The Post, which arrived online this morning, doesn’t come in the form of a two-minute trailer or along those lines, but rather an image, featuring much of the cast, published in the latest edition of Spanish film magazine Fotogramas. Have a look at the first image from The Post below:

‘Wonder Woman 2’ changes its release date to November 2019 to distance itself from ‘Star Wars’

Published

Wonder Woman 2

In an effort to distance Patty Jenkins’ highly anticipated Wonder Woman sequel from the Star Wars: Episode IX craze in December 2019, it appears Warner Bros. has opted to push the film forward by an entire month from December 13, 2019 to November 1, 2019.

The follow-up to Star Wars: The Last Jedi was originally expected to open in theaters in May 2019 but was delayed after Colin Trevorrow was fired by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and replaced with J.J. Abrams, who is currently re-writing the sequel.

The news of the Wonder Woman sequel’s release date shift comes on the heels of a Page Six report claiming that Gal Gadot, who plays the title character, will refuse to reprise her role as the iconic DC superhero unless Warner Bros. cuts ties with accused sexual harasser Brett Ratner, though the studio claims the story is “false.”

Earlier this month, Wonder Woman crossed the $821.74 million mark at the box office, becoming the highest-grossing superhero origin movie of all time—a record previously held by Sam Raimi’s critically acclaimed 2002 Spider-Man starring Toby Maguire.

Wonder Woman is expected to be submitted to the 90th Academy Awards in 15 categories later this year including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Cinematography, and Best Original Score.

Denis Villeneuve says he is too busy with his ‘Dune’ adaptation to direct ‘James Bond 25’

Denis Villeneuve James Bond

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer announced this past summer that the world’s most favorite MI6 agent, James Bond, would be returning to the big screen in 2019 with Daniel Craig reprising his role one last time before officially calling it quits.

However, there has been plenty of speculation as to who will direct Craig in his final outing. Yann Demange, David Mackenzie, and Denis Villeneuve are said to be the top three frontrunners for the gig, but the latter doesn’t think the timing is quite right for him.

“The thing is, I don’t know about that,” Villeneuve said when asked if he is going to direct James Bond 25. “Daniel Craig is a very inspiring actor, and I had some contact, and the thing is that I’m busy right now doing Dune. But, I will say to have the privilege to work with him, would be a dream. I would love to work with Daniel and a Bond movie, for me, would be a treat. It’s a matter of timing I guess.”

Dune is, of course, a novel that Hollywood has had a tough time bringing to the big screen in the past, with the exception of David Lynch’s 1984 adaptation, so it would only make sense that Villeneuve, one of the busiest directors working today, would be devoting all of his time to making sure he gets his own adaptation done correctly.

As for Bond 25, which is being written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, it should be safe to say that we can cross Villeneuve off the list of frontrunners and expect either Demange or Mackenzie to take the directing gig. Either way, MGM will have to make a decision soon, as the film is scheduled to open in theaters on November 8, 2019.

‘Justice League’ social media reactions call it a flawed, surprisingly fun superhero adventure

Justice League Social Media Reactions Hit

The first reactions to Justice League have hit social media and they, largely, have rather positive things to say about the upcoming next installment in the DC Extended Universe starring Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, and Ray Fisher, though they do acknowledge that this surprisingly fun superhero adventure has some major flaws.

Justice League takes place just after the events of last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and follows Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince as they work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against a newly awakened threat. Zack Snyder directed the majority of the film, while Joss Whedon oversaw reshoots and post-production.

With an all-star cast that also includes Amy Adams, J.K. Simmons, Amber Heard, Jesse Eisenberg, Robin Wright, Diane Lane, Kiersey Clemons, Jeremy Irons, and Ciaran Hinds, Justice League will open in theaters nationwide on November 17, 2017.

Check out some of the long-awaited first reactions to Justice League below:
