Spotlight is slowly building its resume as the one to beat at next year’s Oscars. The investigative journalism drama just notched up several wins at the 2015 Gotham Independent Film Awards. If you haven’t seen this film, give it a view. It’s highly compelling with top-notch performances.

Tom McCarthy’s drama about the Boston Globe’s Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting on sex abuse by Catholic priests scored Best Feature, Best Screenplay and an award for best ensemble. This is the second ensemble award for the star-studded cast which includes Rachel McAdams, Brian D’Arcy James, Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Liev Schreiber, John Slattery and Stanley Tucci. The Independent Spirit Awards also recently bestowed them with their Robert Altman award for best ensemble.

Meanwhile, Bel Powley powered past several perceived Oscar frontrunners for Best Actress. The Diary of a Teenage Girl actress beat out Cate Blanchett (Carol), Brie Larson (Room), Lily Tomlin (Grandma), Kristen Wiig (Welcome To Me) and Blythe Danner (I’ll See You In My Dreams).

Another win worth mentioning was for Tangerine. The comedy-drama shot entirely with three iPhone 5s lost out for Best Feature but snagged Best Breakthrough Actor for Mya Taylor. She beat out her co-star Kitana Kiki Rodriguez for the award. Check out all the winners below.

A new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer debuts on Jimmy Kimmel Live this Wednesday, December 2. Based on an exclusive sneak peek released by Warner Bros, it’s going to be a very intense one. The tension between the titular characters is beyond palpable in the clip.

Superman (Henry Cavill) walks intensely to a chained up Batman (Ben Affleck) held in captive. Once face to face, the Man of Steel unmasks the Caped Crusader and then proceeds to toss away the mask. I can’t wait to watch this hero-on-hero battle royale.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice flies into theaters on March 25, 2016. Check out the newest clip below.

Like Darren Aronofsky’s Noah and Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings, Gods of Egypt faced accusations of cinematic colonialism. Almost immediately after the first trailer surfaced online, the film received a backlash for featuring only one visible minority in the main cast. The director has released a statement for his casting choices.

“The process of casting a movie has many complicated variables, but it is clear that our casting choices should have been more diverse. I sincerely apologize to those who are offended by the decisions we made.” – Alex Proyas

Lionsgate also issued a statement, addressing the lack of diversity. Read it below.

Despite almost 15 years passing since Zoolander first hit theaters, interest in the film is still quite high. Paramount Pictures and Ben Stiller must be breathing a sigh of relief. The studio announced the Zoolander 2 trailer has broken the record to become the most successful comedy trailer launch of all time. Clearly, deciding to finally film a sequel was a good idea.

Reportedly, the first trailer generated a ridiculously good 52.2 million views in its first week of release. The previous record was held by another highly-anticipated sequel, Dumb and Dumber 2 which raked in 49 million views.

No doubt the controversy surrounding Benedict Cumberbatch’s character helped Zoolander 2. His androgynous character was criticized as “the modern equivalent of using blackface to represent a minority,” stated Sarah Rose who started a petition to boycott the film which so far has more than 14,000 signatures.

Zoolander 2 opens nationwide on Feb. 12, 2016. Check out the trailer below if you haven’t already seen it.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re very aware a new Star Wars film is nearly upon us. You can’t go anywhere or turn on the TV without being inundated with the film’s merchandise. Brand awareness is certainly high.

Empire magazine recently unleashed six collectible covers featuring characters from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Harrison Ford as Hans Solo and Chewbacca get their own cover, while Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), John Boyega (Finn), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma) and Daisy Ridley (Rey) also grace their very own.

Check them all out below. If you happen to visit a newsstand in the near future, pick up a copy. The publication touts they look even better in person due to the use “of dazzling lenticular 3D technology.”

Even though it’s Star Wars Week on Jimmy Kimmel, that isn’t stopping ABC from promoting the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s all about corporate synergy these days folks.

The first teaser trailer doesn’t give away too much except for the fact Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) are on the outs due to Steve Rogers wanting to protect his old friend, Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan). Should we prep ourselves for an epic fight between these two Avengers?

The third installment of the Captain America franchise will give fans the first look at Tom Holland as Spider-man and marks the first appearance of Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. They’ll join returning players Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Emily VanCamp as Agent 13 and Paul Bettany as Vision in the highly-anticipated flick.

Captain America: Civil War invades theaters everywhere on May 6. Check out the teaser trailer below.

For the past couple of years, several Film Independent Spirit Awards winners have also gone on to Oscar glory. Both 12 Years a Slave and Birdman took home the big prizes at ceremonies in 2014 and 2015 respectively.

The acting category winners have also fared well. Matthew Mcconaughey, Jared Leto, Patricia Arquette, Julianne Moore, JK Simmons and Cate Blanchett are all recent winners at both awards shows.

Speaking of Blanchett, she’s once again in the hunt for Best Actress. She’ll go up against her Carol co-star Rooney Mara and Oscar frontrunner Room‘s Brie Larson.

Spotlight which scored a Best Feature nod, surprisingly didn’t snag any solo acting nominations. Buzz surrounding the performances of Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams has been huge. Poor McAdams, I fear she’ll once again be shut out when the Oscar nominations are announced. The film did, however, snag the Robert Altman Award for Best Ensemble.

Check out all the 2016 Film Spirit Independent Award nominations below. Idris Elba, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Cynthia Nixon and Michael Shannon are just a few vying for awards.

Chris Colfer Joins Ab Fab Movie

In: Donovan, Movies, Totally GAY!

The Absolutely Fabulous movie just got a little gayer. If that’s even possible 😉 The film’s official Facebook page announced Chris Colfer will join Patsy and Edina on the big screen.

“Look who’s found himself in the middle of an Ab Fab sandwich! We’re feeling totally gleeful as we welcome the wonderful Chris Colfer to the cast,” via Facebook

The former Glee actor joins previously announced celebrity guests Kate Moss, Emma ‘Baby Spice’ Bunton, Harry Styles, Kim Kardashian, Jerry Hall and Joan Collins. Colfer recently told Larry King Now his character is a “hairdresser-slash-social media consultant.” Try fitting that on a business card.

The Ab Fab movie plot reportedly revolves around Edina and Patsy running away to the French Riviera to escape that trouble they apparently caused at a London fashion party. It’s set to hit theaters July 2016. I can’t wait.
