Warner Bros. has made some excellent progress when it comes to adding diversity in their DC films. They were among the first to have a solo female superhero film to be directed by a female director. And now they’ve taken another huge step with Birds Of Prey, an all-female DC superhero ensemble. Directed by Cathy Yan, the film will see Margot Robbie reprising her DCEU role as Harley Quinn, who will be joined by DC characters Black Canary, Huntress, Cassandra Cain, and Renee Montoya in a fight to defend Gotham City against one of Batman’s most notable villains, Black Mask.
While Robbie is the only confirmed actress to board the film, a new report says Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Justina Machado,, and more are being considered for various roles. More on the story here below.
Sure, Hotel Artemis may have the same aesthetics as a John Wick – the exclusivity, the rules of the hospital, the high-priced killers – but it still looks like a whole lot of fun.
There is a new red band trailer for the film that ups the violence and bad language. But I can’t be sure it will be enough to get out of John Wick‘s shadow. If anything the electric cast should be enough to get us interested in watching it. Check out the trailer below.
The first trailer for Hotel Artemis, Iron Man 3 scribe Drew Pearce‘s directorial debut, has been released. The film centers on the titular hospital that caters exclusively to the criminal kind and how one small mistake turn it into a war zone. It stars Jodie Foster, Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Bryan Tyree Henry, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day, and Dave Bautista.
Michael B. Jordan is a bit of a hot head, but not in that kind of way. Having already played characters who could spontaneously combust or just wanted to see traditions being burned, the actor will be taking his pyromania to a more serious film.
In HBO’s Fahrenheit 451, based on the Ray Bradbury novel of the same name, Jordan plays Guy Montag, a fireman who is tasked with burning books and anything resembling a written work. But Montag is beginning to have some serious doubts about the work he is doing and questions his existence. He’ll be joined by Michael Shannon, who plays fire captain Beatty, the leader of the troop that burns the books and the buildings they are held in. A new teaser trailer for the film has been released, and can be found below.
