I don’t know what that meant in terms of how it actually got translated in terms of the reshoots but that’s what I heard. Even if you have something tremendous to contribute to society, the first thing that most social situations will do is ostracize you because you look different because they don’t know who or what you are. #BORGLIFE #JusticeLeagueA post shared by Ray Fisher (@rehsifyar) on Sep 16, 2016 at 11:33am PDTImpressive!IGN recently talked with Joe Morton, who plays Cyborg’s father/inventor Dr. So I think that’s a big deal in this film for that character, and for Silas, and makes for interesting film making.””Justice League” opens November 17th.[h/t CinemaBlend]Want more stuff like this?

I know that with Ray, the young man who plays Victor, there were some adjustments that they made in terms of the tone of that character. He could eat doughnuts in front of the rest of the “Justice League” and just watch them seethe. That’s what I thought some of the reshoots were about.Morton also talked to Comic Book Movie about the Victor/Silas relationship, saying Victor resents Silas for turning him into Cyborg:”Yeah, some of that still exists in the film where Victor sort of feels like, ‘Yes you saved my life, but look what you made me look like. Is there’s any difference in tone?Morton: Well, the stuff that I had to do were just really small little bits and pieces, nothing necessarily having to do with tone. I think what I heard was that there was a need from the studio to lighten up the film in a way, that the film felt too dark. Instead, Fisher gained 33 pounds of pure muscle to play Victor Stone/Cyborg, and showed off the results on Instagram:That time @wfmft and @fitnessbyfortitude turned a 190lbs asthmatic goofball from Jersey into a 223lbs asthmatic goofball from Jersey๐Ÿ˜œ #tbt #justiceleague #BORGLIFEA post shared by Ray Fisher (@rehsifyar) on Aug 10, 2017 at 9:23am PDT

So what I think is great about that idea is you begin, in a metaphoric way, sort of talking about what it means to be ‘the other’ in society.

They already finished filming that one, so if no one called Jackson after this particular interview, he’s out.”Captain Marvel” is scheduled to open March 8, 2019.Want more stuff like this? They’re shooting them now, and they haven’t called me yet. I wasn’t in the ‘superhero argument’ movie [‘Captain America: Civil War’], I’m not in ‘Avengers 3 and 4’. Jackson is feeling the fury (or at least disappointment) of Nick Fury after his character has been sidelined from multiple Marvel movies.Fury helped launch the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it with his post-credits scene in “Iron Man.” He was last seen briefly in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” after being declared “officially dead” in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”It was recently confirmed that Jackson will co-star with Brie Larson in “Captain Marvel,” which is set in the 1990s, before the first “Iron Man.” But when will be able to see what’s in Fury’s future?In an interview with Yahoo UK, taped before the “Captain Marvel” confirmation, Jackson revealed his confusion about his place in the MCU.”I’ve been rumored to be in several different Marvel movies that I haven’t shown up in.

Posted August 15, 2017 by Rachel HornerLuna Lovegood (Evanna Lynch) is still our favorite Hogwarts alum. She might not be the chosen one, like Harry Potter, but she was delightfully strange and added much-needed comic relief to the latter films in the series.These are the 11 reasons the “Harry Potter” character will always have our hearts.



Posted August 15, 2017 by Katie Roberts”Game of Thrones” is hotter than ever, both literally and figuratively, as it continues to break its own viewership records in its seventh season. It appears that when you have a massively popular cultural phenomenon in your corner, nothing else really matters.Season seven of “Game of Thrones” wraps on August 27.[via: Deadline] And for the second week in a row, it’s attracted the biggest audience in its history.Last Sunday’s episode, “Eastwatch,” narrowly bested the previous week’s offering, “Spoils of War,” to become the most-watched installment of the HBO fantasy series ever, edging past the former’s 10.2 million viewers to score 10.72 million sets of eyeballs. A separate case of a stolen “Thrones” episode was recently solved, with four people in India arrested over the theft and online posting of “Spoils of War.”That leak didn’t stop “Spoils” from setting a ratings record, though, and HBO has declared that it won’t be blackmailed by the other hackers, either. At the rate things are going, we fully expect that record to fall by the time the season seven finale airs in a few weeks.The show’s ratings success comes in the wake of some turmoil at HBO, which has been the victim of a massive hack — and subsequent leak of internal emails, entire episodes and scripts of its original series, and other sensitive information — over the past few weeks.



Posted August 15, 2017 by Katie RobertsThe stunt woman killed in a motorcycle accident on the set of “Deadpool 2” this week has been identified by the Coroner’s Service of British Columbia.The driver’s name was Joi “SJ” Harris, a New York native who was 40 years old, and working on her first film. And the heart breaks and will slowly mend together as time sews beautiful memories honoring her.” Deadline reports that production on the film has shut down in the wake of Harris’s death, though it’s unclear for how long. “Sisters on the track are few and far in between. In addition to police, several different organizations are investigating the accident, including WorkSafeBC and SAG-AFTRA.Harris was a trailblazing rider, noting on her personal blog that she was the first African-American female professional road racer. I want to show them that there’s more for them to be exposed to. I never met her, but I know she was a friend, a sister, a daughter and a mentor. “Deadpool 2” is slated for release sometime in 2018.[via: The Hollywood Reporter, SJ Harris, Porshe Taylor, h/t People] “She died while living her dream out loud, and doing what she loved till the end.””Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds offered condolences for Harris on social media on Monday, and his costar Josh Brolin also shared his sadness in an Instagram post:”We are mourning the death of a beautiful woman who died tragically this morning on our set. I want to get kids interested through experience.”On Tuesday, Porsche Taylor, the editor of Black Girls Ride and a close friend of Harris, took to Facebook to remember the late rider, noting that Harris’s “Deadpool 2” gig was “the opportunity of a lifetime.””SJ has overcome life’s adversity to ride on the biggest stage there was for a motorcycle rider,” Taylor wrote on Facebook. Harris died during filming in downtown Vancouver Monday morning when the motorcycle she was riding crashed into a building, throwing her through a plate glass window.Local authorities are still trying to determine the cause of the accident, but witnesses say that Harris performed the stunt without incident four times, before something went wrong during the fifth try. In a 2015 interview with Black Girls Ride magazine, she said she was proud of that distinction, and wanted to inspire others.”I am everything people never saw in this sport,” Harris told the magazine.



Posted August 15, 2017 by Kelly WooAnother Adam Sandler movie is debuting on Netflix, but this one … well, looks promising.That’s because “The Meyerowitz Stories” comes from writer/director Noah Baumbach (“Frances Ha,” “The Squid and the Whale”). And like many of his other movies, this one is a family dramedy with nuanced, complicated relationships at the core.The movie follows three siblings — played by Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Elizabeth Marvel — and their cantankerous artist father (Dustin Hoffman). The teaser doesn’t reveal much about the movie’s plot, but shows some interesting dynamics, whether it’s Stiller slapping Sandler or the three siblings singing at a piano together.The movie was well-received when it debuted at the Cannes Film Festival, and Sandler himself got some of the best reviews of his career.”The Meyerowitz Stories” opens in select theaters and begins streaming on Netflix on October 13.



The producers are alleging that AMC is not paying a fair-market fee, in turn lowering their share of the profits.AMC slammed the lawsuit as “opportunistic,” though the network also took care to express “enormous respect and appreciation” for the producers.Still, this sets up a contentious situation between the show’s creative team and the network just ahead of the eighth season. For instance, “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad” were produced, respectively, by the studios Lionsgate and Sony Pictures Television.Because “The Walking Dead” is produced in-house, AMC can pay a low or non-existent license fee to itself. It’s also not the only lawsuit AMC is grappling with over “Walking Dead.” Co-creator and original showrunner Frank Darabont, who was fired in Season 2, also sued AMC over his financial share. Posted August 15, 2017 by Kelly WooThe creator and three producers of “The Walking Dead” have filed a lawsuit against AMC Networks, seeking a greater share of the profits from the show and its spinoffs.Co-creator Robert Kirkman (who penned the comics), Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, and former showrunner Glen Mazzara are claiming that AMC is keeping a “lion’s share” of the profits from the show, spinoff “Fear the Walking Dead,” and after-show “Talking Dead.”Typically, a network pays a studio a licensing fee to air a show, and producers’ cut of the profits is based on that fee.



The dialogue is quick and snappy, just as we’re used to from Sorkin’s previous work in “The Social Network” and various TV shows (“The West Wing,” “Newsroom,” “Sports Night”). “God knows I was scared going into it,” Sorkin told Entertainment Weekly of directing “Molly’s Game,” “but I just felt like if I was ever going to do it, it was going to be this.””Molly’s Game” also stars Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, Chris O’Dowd, and Brian d’Arcy James and opens in theaters November 22. The money is flowing, players are happy — until Molly gets entangled with the Ruffian mob. It’s interesting that Sorkin has never directed a movie before, though he was in line to helm “The Social Network” if David Fincher passed. Posted August 15, 2017 by Kelly WooJessica Chastain is going all in!The first trailer for “Molly’s Game,” Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut, presents Chastain as Molly Bloom, a former Olympic-level skiier who ran a high-stakes, exclusive poker club for over a decade before getting caught by the FBI.Based on Bloom’s own tell-all memoir, the movie takes Molly from helping her boss run a poker room at the “Cobra Lounge” (really the Viper Room on the Sunset Strip) to creating a thriving business of her own. Then, the FBI comes a-knocking and Molly hires a lawyer (Idris Elba), who advises her to name names.



Yes, that’s right: The young blacksmith managed to survive the seas and row to safety.Surprisingly, Dempsie doesn’t seem torn up about having missed multiple seasons of the HBO drama’s epic action. Posted August 14, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongThe best way to survive “Game of Thrones” may be to take a break from it.Season 7, Episode 5, “Eastwatch,” brought back multiple characters from years past, including one we haven’t seen since the show’s third season. After quickly forming a bond with Jon Snow (Kit Harington), he headed off beyond the wall in search of White Walkers. It’s an insanely dangerous mission, but Dempsie is optimistic that his character might be safe for a while.”By staying out of harm’s way for three seasons, I hopefully get to survive a bit longer,” he told Variety.Dangerous as it is dealing with the army of the dead, we have high hopes that he’ll make it, too. (Warning: There are spoilers ahead if you haven’t yet watched Sunday’s episode.) None other than Gendry (Joe Dempsie), the illegitimate son of Robert Baratheon, resurfaced this week. ET/PT on HBO.[via: Variety] I think the majority of us would say, ‘I just want a part to play in the end game.'”Gendry is getting that chance — for now anyway. “I can’t speak for everyone but I think most actors in the show, if you ask them what they want for their character … While speaking with Variety, he pointed out that his absence kept his character alive long enough to be involved in the buildup to the series’ conclusion.”It feels kind of perfect from a personal point of view,” he said of the timing of his return. Not only does he still have to reunite with Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), we’re interested to see what happens to Gendry and Jon’s friendship when they learn the truth of Jon’s parentage.”Game of Thrones” airs Sundays at 9 p.m.



The “huh?” factor increases exponentially when you take a gander at that giant octopus sequence.)”The Monster Squad,” by comparison, is cut to the bone. Each uses some kind of oversized, genre-based aspect to buttress up against that progress and cause the characters’ accelerated growth. That commitment to irreverence is evident in “The Monster Squad,” from the very first moments, which recount an attempt to vanquish ancient evil that ends in the words “… And that is awesome.The more mature tone and the movie’s willingness to take chances is set up earlier in the movie when a “Scary Germany Guy” in the kids’ neighborhood turns out to be a holocaust survivor (he’s got the numeric tattoo on his arm). Monsters who are established as potential big bads are discarded unceremoniously, while others who you think would have died off earlier come back to have a pivotal role. And while it feels like the monsters are more disconnected from reality than, say, gangsters or mutants or whatever else is going on in “The Goonies,” they actually mirror the characters’ struggle with greater depth and dimension. In fact, it has the core roster of Universal Monsters, although their designs and sometimes their names were changed to avoid copyright infringement (since this was a TriStar movie). Speed isn’t necessarily an indicator of intelligence, but the way that the movie is put together, with so many disparate pieces so elegantly coming together, is. Much of it, especially towards the end, was filmed in the old Universal back lot (perhaps most memorably utilized in “Back to the Future”) and even that use of an iconic set gives it the sensation of familiarity. (If you want to know how truly unwieldy this thing was, you should watch the deleted scenes on the home video releases of the film. It’s like if “Aren’t you a little short for a Stormtrooper?” was uttered by the Death Star and not Princess Leia. They would argue it’s the mark of a truly classic comedy, if you can whip out a line of dialogue in real life, applying it to an everyday situation. There’s something wilder, looser, and riskier about “The Monster Squad.” It’s the rare movie aimed towards family audiences that feels like one of the kids could potentially die before the end credits roll. Not only are the new designs for these characters truly incredible, overseen by some of the best and brightest in the business, including the legendary Stan Winston. This adds to the wild unpredictability of the movie, particularly as it barrels towards its finale. And, honestly, that shows in the final product. Posted August 14, 2017 by Drew TaylorThirty years ago, in 1987, Fred Dekker’s “The Monster Squad” was unleashed in theaters nationwide, coming just two years after the similar “young kids discover mysterious artifact” romp “The Goonies.” One of those films was elevated to the level of beloved classic, while the other limped along in half-forgotten cult classic obscurity, only occasionally being released on home video or streamed. Much of this has to do with the screenplay by a young Shane Black, who was in the process of taking over Hollywood with his huge script sales and whip-smart dialogue. It feels safe; its edges have been sanded down. By grounding an outré story in something mundane then it makes everything (whether it’s a pirate ship or a gaggle of famous monsters) that much more plausible, which translates into bigger stakes and greater drama. They blew it.”It’s RiskierSome have argued that Spielberg micromanaged director Donner on the set of “The Goonies” to the point that, as it’s been said about “Poltergeist,” he should have received the director’s credit himself. But that’s precisely why the believability is so important. It loses its oomph. And the monsters add something to the movie’s metaphoric value.Both “The Goonies” and “The Monster Squad” are about growing up, and the pain that is associated with that transition. These are crazy stories full of fantastical situations and outlandish characters. Anyway, it’s not just the “Wolf Man nards” line that is so funny, with Rudy, the cool kid who wants to be a part of the titular club, jugging not only the inherent goofiness of the other kids but the otherworldly stakes.It’s SmarterThe story for “The Goonies” was apparently conceived by Steven Spielberg (more on his involvement in a minute) and written by Chris Columbus, whose spec script for “Gremlins” eventually became a film produced by Spielberg. But here’s the thing that will only become more apparent as the years roll on: “The Monster Squad” is a much better movie than Richard Donner’s lil’ swashbuckler.It’s More Relatable”The Goonies” is set in an area of Oregon known as the “Goon Docks.” It makes for great atmosphere and for a rousing opening sequence along the water, but with its misty, forested hills and eerie vibe, it feels as alien and odd as “Twin Peaks.” It’s an odd disconnect, especially since the movie is cut from the same Amblin cloth as things like “E.T.” and “Poltergeist” — films that, no matter where they were set, felt like they were happening down the street from your neighborhood home.With “The Monster Squad,” it is both set in small town America and actually feels like it, too. In “The Monster Squad,” though, the antagonists mirror what the characters are going through in a more overt way (since the creatures also literally transform). And I know what you’re thinking — so what if it’s relatable? There’s nothing better than being completely surprised by a movie, and that happens far more often in “The Monster Squad” than it does in comparatively tamer “The Goonies.”It Has MonstersThis cannot be stated enough: “The Monster Squad” features a ton of famous monsters. It’s just lovely. And while Columbus (especially in those early days) was capable of putting together a nifty genre movie, his script for “The Goonies” often meanders without much in the way of payoff. And while it’s uncertain how often you would encounter such an event, I’ve heard “The Monster Squad’s” iconic “Wolf Man’s got nards” lines more times than I can count. But “The Goonies” has, what, “Hey you guys?” Not only is this line not very specific, it’s also uttered by a weird mutant guy who the kids unearth on their quest and not spoken by one of the kids themselves.In other words, the dialogue comes from something uncanny that they’ve discovered on their quest, not their reaction to something uncanny they’ve discovered on their quest. It’s all killer, no filler, quickly introducing characters both human and inhuman and rocketing them towards a satisfying climax. But how gorgeous is the Pacific Northwest?It’s FunnierPeople sometimes cite a movie being quotable in relation to just how funny it is.

Posted August 14, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongRyan Reynolds had a much less lighthearted tweet than usual for fans on Monday.After a tragic death rocked the “Deadpool 2″ set, the star of the superhero flick spoke out on Twitter, expressing his sorrow and acknowledging the still-unnamed stunt person’s loved ones and their grief.”Today, we tragically lost a member of our crew while filming Deadpool,” he wrote.



“We are deeply grateful to the police for their swift and prompt action. air date of August 6.

This leak is unrelated to the ongoing leak of sensitive internal information and entire seasons of original programming that’s been seeping out for weeks now.

The episode, titled “Spoils of War,” was stamped with the Star India watermark, leading authorities to zero in on those connected to that company, which distributes the hit series for HBO in India.According to The Economic Times, the leak was traced to employees — both current and former — of Prime Focus Technologies, a company that Star India contracts to manage its data.



I’d never heard about it in my life. thing I’ve ever heard!Other culture shock stuff I’m always surprised by: all the party stuff is always kind of weird to me. So I didn’t need anything off anybody, which is a great way to come to LA. There’s a lot more lawyers here so there’s a lot more sh*t talk. Even though it’s very different from where I grew up, people are people. I could happily go into something that was pure dark or pure comedy if it were a movie. And I’m so L.A.”Oh, f*ck! What have you been able to pick up from seeing somebody who can be as funny as Ray is but also knows when to veer away from it and into the dramatic?Genuinely, I think that Ray is a probably much more naturally funny guy than I am anyway. So there’s a lot of people creating jobs for themselves because they want to live here, and so there is some of that. Vincent,” TV appearances like his recurring stint on “Girls” and the Irish sitcom “Moone Boy,” which he created, wrote, produced, directed and starred in, O’Dowd has deftly straddled comedy and drama before. Once you see that, then it’s kind of like you’re in “The Matrix.”Have you bumped up against any of the shady figures in Los Angeles? Something that you still got to be funny but that gave you a little bit more of a dramatic bite?Chris O’Dowd: I think that’s probably right, for a long-term thing. Whereas more than half the people that come to Hollywood tell you, “It’s so hard. way of doing things that truly mystified you when you got here, and then the things that you now catch yourself doing, going, “That’s so L.A. He never switches off.I love the “Get Shorty” philosophy of how, for some people, Hollywood is an easy thing to crack, because they see it as a scam they can play. One of the things that drew me to the character was “Oh, bluntness works well here.” Not entirely bullsh*tting people all the time is actually quite an attractive commodity.You go on an awful lot of general meetings, and I never tried to behave like a slick operator, really. And there’s way too many lawyers making creative decisions, which is how you end up with the movie business in the toilet. And I didn’t come here looking for work. That’s the most f*cking L.A. But I’ve certainly encountered my very fair share of bullsh*tters.And I guess Miles works as a character because he’s able to cut through and to recognize it because he’s used to being lied to in his own profession by people who always owe his boss money and will have it next week.”Get Shorty” airs Sundays on Epix. He’s got a lovely quality to him. Honesty actually goes further than people would imagine it does, because it’s so unusual.Tell me a little bit about culture shock: the Hollywood/L.A. But you can see him pick his moments and he’s very present in all the moments.I’ve always found that working with comedy people anyway, because they’re always looking for the funniest version of a line, they’re very much there all the time because they’re hoping to get a cue for a gag. can be quite brutal but it’s interesting and straightforward. But, apparently, dogs have to get their glands … It’s such a struggle.” What was your experience like when you first got here? I left my dog in to get his a** squeezed the other day. So it took a lot of moxie — it did!I didn’t ever think that that combination of things would come in a “hard man” character, because that’s not something I’ve ever been drawn to or that people see me as. It’s like being at the buffet table and not taking anything.You’re working with Ray Romano, another guy who has done that exact same balancing act lately. I’ve been fairly well sheltered. Goodie bags that cost more than my first car, all of that — or even my last car.I don’t find it as odd a place as a lot of people, I think. It’s never a thing that I’ve gotten into. And then when you’re suddenly in that position, people want things from you, which changes the power dynamic entirely.But I’ve always found L.A. Did it feel hard or did you feel like, “I think I understand this system”?I thought it was fairly straightforward when I got here. Is that something that you were looking for? But it means that they’re always very available emotionally in the scene, and he’s great at that. and my wife’s like, “The dog needs to get his glands done, his a** glands done at the parlor,” or whatever. it’s hard. I came here because I got a job for the first time. Dial it back.”It’s fun to watch it back. It’s tricky to be still. But his role as Miles Daly, a low-level mob enforcer with a lyrical love of cinema who finds himself pursuing his Hollywood dreams with a script penned by one of his bosses’ debtors, taps all of his inherent likability and his potentially dangerous side at once.O’Dowd joined Moviefone to reflect on his own adventures navigating the sometimes perilous pathways of the showbiz world, as well as revealing the unlikely way he recently found himself — and his dog — going Hollywood.Moviefone: I love this project for you because it’s the light and the dark, and I think that you do both very well. You know this thing that they do? And not always looking for the funniest version of a line is actually something that I’ve had to learn.Now that you’re getting your handle on it, are your instincts telling you to go for the funny, but for this it’s like, “No — dial it back. While I’m doing it at the moment, while in the scene, it feels … Posted August 14, 2017 by Scott HuverWhen Epix was planning a fresh, episodic take on “Get Shorty,” novelist Elmore Leonard’s classic collision of the mob and Hollywood, that takes a somewhat darker, grittier turn than the famous 1995 film starring John Travolta, the show needed a leading man who handle both the serious and the sillier aspects.The solution: Get Chris O’Dowd.Best known for his winning turns in films like “Bridesmaids,” “This Is 40,” and “St. The guys that your character would be associated with?Well, a lot of the studio execs who would do anything for success, [but] not so much. But it’s kind of interesting doing it. Yeah. I had auditioned for a pilot for the BBC and learned, when I got called for it in L.A., that it was actually for NBC, so I came here by accident, and to work. I generally told stories about dates I’ve been going on and it seemed to work well. He picks his moments and he can afford, in his role, to be the guy to also do the button on the scene and it plays a lot better than if I were to do it. I just couldn’t have gone and done a sitcom, or I couldn’t really have gone on to a dark show forever.I’ve always been intimidated by doing American TV because it’s such a long commitment, so it has to be something that I feel like it can use all your little skills, but also it’s something that people haven’t seen you do before.



For you, what’s interesting and challenging about bringing that aspect of Matt and Daredevil to life?Look, I think I got so lucky with Matt Murdoch, especially if you’re going to play a character on TV rather than a film, where you’ve got a couple of hours to play a character. The storyline that led towards the suit, for me, justified it, and I need that. I know how important these characters are to people, and so it’s tremendous fun that we have making the show, but it’s also really important that the fans feel like we did the characters justice.I feel like we did a great job. One, because protection was needed. If I engage in a superhero TV show or film or whatever, that’s the one hurdle that I need to get over in order to really love it. So it was clear early on that Danny and Matt would have a kind of [sibling relationship]. Similarly, he’s a lawyer, and that is also in conflict with his nighttime activities as a masked vigilante. Initially, it’s not personal for Jessica and Luke. What kind of satisfaction have you walked away knowing that you got there and were all able to, all four of you, get together and pull this off?I mean, we’ll see when it comes out! He believes in the law. He’s a Catholic, but at the same time, he plays God to some extent. Were you feeling an extra little jolt when you started work on this, finally getting the chance to work with the three other leads of the Netflix-Marvel shows?Charlie Cox: Yeah. We did our best. I actually just think that the reason for that is twofold: one, Matt’s already had two seasons of his character’s show, so there’s already been another 13 hours of investment into his character, so we know more about him. And so, in a way, “Defenders” was particularly enjoyable, because we got to enjoy all the real geeky fan moments and the Easter eggs.When it came to sharing scenes with Mike and Finn and Krysten, tell me about the kinds of chemistry you found you had with each of those actors in your characters. That dynamic is interesting, because they don’t initially like each other very much, and I think they actually learned to kind of respect and admire one another, even against their will, kind of thing. They’ve never come across an organization like that. Not that he needs it per se, but maybe he’s a little more hot-headed, and can be a little more irrational than Matt.Jessica’s kind of like everyone’s older sister, and Matt and Jessica have a lot of really fun scenes together. We get to see him be a lawyer. What did it mean to you to kind of know that this story, even though it was an ensemble piece, was going to affect Daredevil’s storyline and his life in such a significant way?You know, I don’t think that was intentional. I think there’s some people who really enjoy what they’ve seen, and there are others who feel like the elements of Elektra that we love the most aren’t as apparent — at least initially aren’t as apparent — in the series.What I liked about it from a character point of view is that Matt is usually relatively sensible and to some degree able to not let his emotions get so hold of him that he makes bad decisions, but in this case, because of everything that happened with Elektra, because of the feelings that he has towards her, because of the guilt that he feels based on what happened to her, he allows himself to believe that she might really be back from the dead, as it were. I’ve already done thirtysomething hours of this guy. On a TV show, you arguably will go on for season after season. I don’t like it when the character puts on a suit just because they want to feel cool or something like that.It needs to make logical sense to me, and I thought they did it really well in Season 1, whereby it happened after 12 hours of footage, and it came about for two reasons. And so I think he believes in the laws of the universe and God’s law, and yet he’ll go out at night and beat the sh*t out of people, because he deems their actions to be sinful. He believes in God. It feels like it’s a nice cherry on top. They don’t know who The Hand is. We tried to make a really fun, interesting, different show that was different from the individual shows, so now we just cross our fingers and hope for the best. But for Matt and Danny, the story’s personal, so from a character point of view, I think that that can be sometimes a little bit more engaging.And audiences have been waiting to see what the next chapter in Matt’s relationship with Elektra was going to turn out to be, based on what they know from the classic comic book story arc. He needed a material that was going to protect his body better, because he was being so beat up.But also because his friend, the priest, had mentioned this alter ego being something like a symbol, something that was consistent and something that wasn’t trying to hide in the shadows, but was actually very visible — and therefore, would help hopefully kind of encourage petty criminals to beware of their behavior kind of thing.Going into “Defenders,” I don’t think you can have Matt just show up in a Daredevil suit straight away. It’s a funny thing, really, because I knew that this was coming when I signed the contract. So they had to find a way of tying it in so that it emerged organically, with a few jokes, obviously, but it has to come at a time where it makes sense. And that false belief sends him down a path that almost endangers himself and the others.We get to explore that relationship a little bit more, but it’s slightly different now, because the boundaries have changed drastically, what with her being undead.Daredevil has historically been one of the most conflicted superheroes, and we still see that that conflict is playing out in this series. We’ve learned more. Tell me about the feeling now that you accomplished that big goal. We’ll see what the fan reaction is, but it feels like a cool accomplishment to have done these four shows, and made this kind of team-up version of it. So you really need something, you need some interesting dynamics within the character in order to keep making him compelling, and of course, with Matt, there’s so many.Just the obvious ones being that he’s religious. We get to see him in church with the priest, but then we also get to see him at home alone, and sitting with those feelings, and feeling the loneliness and the shame of that inner conflict, and that for me is what makes him a compelling character.All of the Marvel-Netflix shows have fun playing with the superhero costume elements — how deeply you want to lean in to that, how soon you’re going to lean in to that — and you get to have some more fun in “Defenders” by playing a Daredevil without some of the traditional suit stuff that we’ve now come to see. Is that more fun for you than playing it in the suit, or do you sometimes want the suit to make you feel like Daredevil?That’s a really good question — I don’t know! We’ve seen him in more kind of situations. No one’s going to mess with him, so he just kind of sits back, and just is cool.”The Defenders” really does advance the Daredevil/Matt Murdock story in particular, more than the other leads, as far as what we’ve been following on the “Daredevil” series. Kind of a full circle situation.I get nervous, because I really hope the fans appreciate it. Tell me about finding such a clever way to integrate that classic storyline into this “Defenders” run.Yeah, that’s an interesting one. And then Luke’s simple, because he’s just cool, you know no one messes with him. I hope they like it. He believes in order. And what was the fun of that bumping against each other?I mean, a lot of the relationships were kind of decided for us by the writers, you know what I mean? Matt’s kind of an older brother to Danny, and kind of takes him under his wing a little bit, and tries to mentor him. In 2014, when I was signed on to do “Daredevil,” I knew that they were planning on making the show, so it’s been in the back of my mind for quite a while now — me more than any of the others, I think, because I was cast first.So it’s been really exciting, and as the other shows have been made, and I’ve enjoyed watching them all so much, and getting to know the other guys — but really just from passing them in corridors, in the studio and stuff like that, and never really actually spending any real time together — and then all being thrown together to this show, it was just lovely, and such a fun bunch of people.Even the ones of us who didn’t grow up on comic books, we’ve kind of become fans now, because we’re so invested in these characters. I really love how the suit came about in the “Daredevil” seasons. There’s almost too many jokes to be made — I think you’d have to do an entire episode where Jessica Jones and Luke Cage make funny jokes about it, you know? I don’t really know — I think it divides people a little bit. And so Matt and Danny have to kind of explain that to them and bring them in and help them kind of get their heads around what we’re dealing with. We get to see Matt go out and be a vigilante. He believes in the justice system, and yet he takes the law into his own hands.And so, what these shows do pretty well, I think, is that we get to see that in action. And I feel they handled that really well, yeah.This show was modeled in the vein of the way that the Marvel movies led to “The Avengers,” but that was always a step-by-step process, whereas you guys knew straightaway this was going to happen. Posted August 14, 2017 by Scott HuverYou don’t need Daredevil’s radar senses to pick up on the excitement building around the long-anticipated arrival of “Marvel’s Defenders,” and now that the street-level super-team is about to make its debut, Charlie Cox says that, at least for him, the wait was worth it.In the new series, which, like its big-screen counterpart “The Avengers,” unites solo superhero stars into a single fighting force, Cox’s Matt Murdock finds himself in an unexpected alliance with the other three Netflix headliners, Luke Cage (Mike Colter), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) to save New York from the mystical ninja death cult The Hand, led by the enigmatic Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver) and her newly resurrected assassin, Murdock’s deadly paramour Elektra (Elodie Yung).With two seasons of stories already under Daredevil’s belt, the Man Without Fear has a crucial part to play in the team-up, and as Cox reveals to Moviefone, the actor was more than a little invested in making sure the series lived up to the hype.Moviefone: The anticipation has been building among the fans as each new show rolled out, but how about for you? I think that does mean that when you watch “The Defenders,” you bring more baggage to it than maybe other characters would.But also, because of the way the stories came together, this story is personal for Matt.

One came from horror spinoff “Annabelle: Creation,” which scared up an estimated $35.0 million in ticket sales to top the box office chart. Even more surprising was that half of the “Nut Job 2″ viewers were over 18, which suggests that the audience contained as many parents as kids.Reviews, once again, continue to dictate in part box office spending. The other fright was from the chart as a whole, which marked this as the lowest-grossing weekend of an already dismal summer.”Annabelle,” the fourth movie in the successful “Conjuring” franchise, performed as well as pundits had predicted. The hyped, would-be blockbusters have usually all come out by this time, and there’s not much to look forward to until after Labor Day. Posted August 14, 2017 by Gary SusmanHollywood got two truly terrifying frights this weekend. It certainly explains the lack of enthusiasm for “Nut Job 2,” whose 2014 predecessor wasn’t that beloved to begin with. “Nut Job 2” actually got a better CinemaScore grade (B+), and that’s still pretty bad for an animated movie. (Critics gave “Nut Job 2” just a “Rotten” 12 percent at Rotten Tomatoes.)”Glass Castle” may have been trolling for awards, with its prestige source material and prestige cast, led by recent Oscar-winner Brie Larson. Critics were unusually kind to “Annabelle,” giving it a 69 percent “Fresh” at Rotten Tomatoes. With more sequels and spinoffs on the way “Conjuring” will continue to be one of the few non-superhero franchises that doesn’t give studio executives nightmares. (“Nut Job 2” earned just $2,232 per screen.) Still, it’s pretty weak for a drama that hopes to last long enough to ride into the fall season as an Oscar banner-waver.How did “Annabelle” manage to pull fans into theaters during a dog-days summer season? But it didn’t get the reviews it needed to succeed now, and it may peak too early in the awards conversation, to be superseded by newer, stronger films as the end of the year approaches. Surprisingly, “Annabelle” skewed older as well, drawing 54 percent of its viewers from the 25-and-over crowd. But its chief rival, cartoon sequel “The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature,” opened in third place with only an estimated $8.9 million, underperforming even the most pessimistic predictions. That, in turn, could explain why older moviegoers came out for this one, since they actually do still read reviews.The paradox is that the critics actually liked “Annabelle” better than paying customers, who gave the horror prequel a meh B grade at CinemaScore once they saw it, after being lured to the theater by strong buzz. No wonder this weekend’s box office total of about $118.2 million is the lowest of the summer, and that the summer as a whole has come in about 10 percent below last summer’s take up to this point.Along with Rotten Tomatoes, that’s been Hollywood’s other scapegoat for poor summer sales. (“Dunkirk” took the same risk with its July release, but at least it’s cleaned up at the box office, with $153.7 million earned so far, which will help voters remember it later.)No one really expects much from the multiplex in mid-August. Then again, distributor New Line went out of its way to cultivate their good will. About the only movies that have done well this summer are superhero franchise movies.At least “Annabelle” proves that you don’t have to wear spandex to have a successful franchise. Most horror distributors ignore critics, figuring that they can either avoid screening the film for reviewers or just pay no mind to the reviews because horror fans usually don’t care what the critics think.New Line, however, actually booked “Annabelle” in film festivals to get positive early buzz among a handful of critics, which then spread among their colleagues. Then again, new franchises (“The Dark Tower”), original-screenplay comedies and horror movies (“The House,” “Wish Upon”), and non-franchise prestige dramas (“Detroit”) haven’t done that well either. But its reviews have been middling, just 49 percent fresh at RT. This despite the fact that there hasn’t been an animated hit in months, that kids are still out of school, and that “Nut Job 2” opened on 4,003 screens to become one of the widest independent releases of all time.And then there’s wannabe awards hopeful “The Glass Castle,” which opened way down in ninth place with an estimated $4.9 million. After a summer of Hollywood complaints about how low RT scores are driving customers away, here at last is some proof. (The highest was the original 2013 “Conjuring,” with $41.9 million, just $6.9 million more than “Creation.”)Worldwide, the franchise has earned a shocking $967 million after just four movies, making it the fourth biggest horror franchise of all time (after “Alien,” “The Mummy,” and “Resident Evil”). Sure, “Creation” has the lowest opening of the four, but they’ve all been in the same ballpark. Sure, “Glass Castle” pretty much has the field to itself right now; distributor Lionsgate may not have wanted it to compete against easier-sell prestige movies that tend to proliferate in the fall months. That’s why it was such a surprise this time last year when “Sausage Party” became a hit (it opened with $34.2 million, nearly as much as “Annabelle: Creation” this weekend).This weekend last year also saw the releases of “Pete’s Dragon” (a kid movie reboot that disappointed at the box office), “Florence Foster Jenkins” (a period biopic whose critical and commercial response were analogous to “Glass Castle,” though Meryl Streep’s performance was still memorable enough to earn her an Oscar nomination), and “Hell or High Water” (another indie Oscar-hopeful that rode its strong reviews to a Best Picture nomination.) Still, despite the similarities, last August also had two big late-season hits: comic book film “Suicide Squad” and horror smash “Don’t Breathe.”Nothing like those films has opened (or is likely to open) this August. And it’s not good to be a poorly-reviewed cartoon two weeks after another disappointing cartoon (“The Emoji Movie”) left audiences feeling burned.It’s also hard to be an Oscar-seeking movie in August. These include “Annabelle” (horror movies tend to draw more women than men), comedy “Girls Trip,” Halle Berry thriller “Kidnap,” “Glass Castle” (an adaptation of Jeannette Walls’ best-selling memoir of her Dickensian childhood), and Charlize Theron spy thriller “Atomic Blonde.” There’s also “Nut Job 2,” whose audience turned out to be 57 percent female.Since “Annabelle” was always going to be the strongest draw of these films, it may have drawn much of the female audience that might otherwise have made hits out of the other new releases — and already has, to varying degrees, for holdovers “Girls Trip,” “Kidnap,” and “Atomic Blonde.””Glass Castle” was always going to skew older; it’s a period piece for a literary audience, one that probably read Walls’ book back in 2005 when she published it. An awards-hopeful drama seeking an audience of older viewers really does depend on critics’ good will in order to succeed at the box office, and “Glass Castle” didn’t have it.Just as it’s hard to be a female-targeted movie at a time when there’s a glut, it’s also good to be the first acclaimed horror movie in a summer that’s barely seen any horror releases at all. That’s just a tad below predictions, and since it only opened on 1,461 screens, that makes for an okay $3,337 per theater. Here are some of the factors behind this weekend’s good-news-bad-news box office.Hollywood tends to ignore women audience members at the box office, but at least half of this weekend’s top 10 movies feature female stars — or predominantly female casts — and cater to majority-female audiences.
