  4. 'Deadpool 2' Actress Zazie Beetz Joins DC's 'Joker'; Here's Everything We Know
    Update 3: Following her scene-stealing role as Domino in this summer's Deadpool 2, Zazie Beetz is in negotiations to join Joaquin Phoenix in Joker. The standalone DC villain origin movie has been set for production starting in September and is rounding up supporting cast around Phoenix in the title role. Warner Bros. is also looking for another name actress to play the Joker's mom. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Beetz would play "a single mother who catches the interest of the man who will become the 'clown prince of crime.'" Whether that's a love interest role or not is unclear, but it seems like a major part. And a very different one than the luck-powered Domino, as Joker is going to be a dark and gritty crime drama more than a traditional...

  8. Watch a New Trailer for Robert Zemeckis' 'Welcome to Marwen'; Here's Everything We Know
    Jeff Malmberg's Marwencol is one of the most beloved documentaries of all time. The 2010 feature may not have received an Oscar nomination or a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes or a significant box office gross, but the nonfiction film community went crazy for it, and pretty much anyone else who saw the doc since has been amazed by its unique human interest story.  Now Marwencol has been remade as a dramatic narrative picture by Robert Zemeckis, and it looks to warm even more hearts and inspire more moviegoers with its adapted tale of a man coping with a personal trauma by creating a fictional World War II-set town in his backyard with dolls. Welcome to Marwen is the name of the upcoming movie, and it's got a new trailer.

  9. 'Overlord' Trailer Teases a World War II Zombie Movie; Here's Everything We Know So Far
      Ahead of Comic-Con, where we expected it to drop, Paramount has unveiled the first trailer for the Bad Robot production Overlord. It's the first R-rated release from J.J. Abrams' company, best known lately for surprise deliveries of Cloverfield movies, and we can easily see why that is. Already, we're getting clear glimpses of gory Nazi zombies here.    The trailer starts off like it's a normal World War II drama, albeit the kind with lots of action and explosions. But soon enough, we see the real horror of Overlord, and it's not the usual wartime terrors. The Nazis are experimenting with either prisoners or dead bodies, either way resulting in some nasty super soldiers of the supernatural kind.   Check out the trailer below. The...
