‘Blade Runner 2049’ Originally Wanted David Bowie to Play the Film’s Antagonist
It wouldn’t be a Blade Runner movie without a nasty villain, and Blade Runner 2049 has a pretty creepy antagonist. Jared Leto plays blind replicant engineer Niander Wallace, a stand-in of sorts for Joe Turkel’s Eldon Tyrell, but he wasn’t originally the first choice for the role. That would have been David Bowie.

‘IT’ Is Now the Biggest September Release in History
It is the adrenaline rush the box office sorely needed after a summer that could accurately be described as “pretty bad” — the new take on Stephen King’s doorstop of a novel is the best horror opening ever, the highest single-day box office for an R-rated movie, the lowest-budgeted movie to gross over $100 million in its opening weekend, and now it’s the biggest opening for a September movie in history.

‘The Accountant’ Director Gavin O’Connor Helming ‘Suicide Squad 2’
The road to Suicide Squad 2 has been a bumpy one, to say the least, but DC and Warner Bros. are determined for this sequel to see the light of day. After numerous director rumors, a few director exits (most recently Jaume Collet-Serra) the film has been searching diligently for someone to take the reins. Today, they found a pretty promising choice: Gavin O‘Connor, director of The Accountant, Miracle, and Warrior.

James Cameron Says ‘Wonder Woman’ Is ‘A Step Backwards’ From ‘Terminator’s Sarah Connor
It just wouldn’t be Hollywood without directors of massively successful movies talking jive about other directors’ massively successful movies. James Cameron is the latest offender, offering up some boiling hot takes about Patty Jenkins’ summer hit Wonder Woman. Apparently, it wasn’t feminist enough for ol’ James.
New ‘Kingsman’ Featurette Claims the Imminent Eclipse is Marketing for ‘The Golden Circle’
Studios have a few avenues to go when it comes to promoting their movies. There’s the standard billboard and TV commercial combo, there’s hyping trailer releases, there’s hyping the teaser to the trailer release that hypes the trailer release, there’s abstract viral marketing, and then there’s creating extremely rare astronomical phenomena. Which is exactly what Kingsman: The Golden Circle is going to do.
Milla Jovovich in Final Talks for the ‘Hellboy’ Reboot’s Sinister Blood Queen
Okay, yes, it’s disappointing that Mike Mignola and co. opted to find someone other than Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman to make a Hellboy movie, but Neil Marshall’s reboot continues to sound really, really exciting. We recently learned that the subtitle of the movie, which will star David Harbour as the titular son of the Fallen One, will be “Rise of the Blood Queen,” which, if you’s familiar, recalls one very cool comic arc with one very scary villain. Some more good news: Milla Jovovich has just been cast as the so-called Blood Queen, also known as the all-powerful witch Nimue.
A New Study Finds White Men Still Talk the Most in Movies
The goal with any society is to get better at stuff, to learn from mistakes and evolve, gradually, over time, to become the best version of itself. But for all the woke baes and social justice awareness out there, it looks like movies still have a long way to go. A new study has found that white men still get the most dialogue in today’s cinema, and women and minorities are still often relegated to stereotypical, nonessential roles.
