Margot Robbie graces the June 2016 cover of Vogue, but it’s her The Legend of Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgård that will leave you feeling primal. You’ll want to ravage the 39-year-old the second you see that drenched shirt clinging onto dear life to every sculpted muscle on his torso. I’ve never been more jealous of fabric in my life.

“I met her in L.A. about a year before we shot the movie, just before The Wolf of Wall Street came out,” he said. “She lived in this tiny studio apartment in Hollywood. We were supposed to just have coffee and talk about the project, but we spent the entire day together. I remember being blown away by how cool and down-to-earth she was. And then Wolf came out, and she went from relative obscurity to being the hottest actress in Hollywood.”

Photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott snapped the two for a stunning editorial featuring jungle-inspired outfits. These aren’t your grandparents’ safari looks. Khakis never looked so good. Check out more pics from the fashion publication below.

The Legend of Tarzan swings into theaters on July 1.

Based on reaction at its Cannes Film Festival premiere, it appears Steven Spielberg has another hit on his hands. Reportedly, the 69-year-old director received a 4 1/2 minute standing ovation after The BFG screened.

Disney just released a new trailer hyping up it’s potential summer blockbuster. Believe it or not, it’s Steven’s first directing gig for the studio.

The film is based on Roald Dahl’s 1982 children’s book of the same name. Melissa Mathison who collaborated with Spielberg on E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, wrote the script. Also returning to work with Spielberg another time is Mark Rylance. He won an Oscar for his work in Bridge of Spies.

The BFG Movie Synopsis

Directed by Spielberg, Disney’s “The BFG” tells the imaginative story of a young girl and the Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. The BFG (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realize that the BFG is actually quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. The BFG brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, teaching her all about the magic and mystery of dreams. Having both been on their own in the world up until now, their affection for one another quickly grows, but Sophie’s presence in Giant Country has attracted the unwanted attention of the other giants, who have become increasingly more bothersome. Sophie and the BFG soon depart for London to see the Queen (Penelope Wilton) and warn her of the precarious giant situation, but they must first convince the Queen and her maid, Mary (Rebecca Hall), that giants do indeed exist. Together, they come up with a plan to get rid of the giants once and for all.

Check out the epic trailer below. The BFG stomps into theaters on July 1.

Empire Strikes Back Gets A James Bond-esque Intro

In: Donovan, Movies
star-wars-james-bond-intro

The Star Wars franchise has one of the most memorable title sequences in cinematic history. That iconic title crawl is instantly recognizable.

What if the space opera implemented another equally memorable sequence from another beloved franchise? Thanks to School of Visual Arts student Kurt Rauffer, we know exactly what that combination would look like.

“The franchise really sparked my imagination as a child,” Rauffer described the video. “It not only let me exercise my imagination but also supplied me with some of the happiest memories as I watched it with my family.”

Rauffer created a gorgeous new intro for Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back using 007’s signature gun barrel imagery and silhouettes. The result is nothing short of spectacular.

Adding even more authenticity to the clip is the fact Kurt used Radiohead’s rejected song from the newest Bond film, Spectre. Check out the new title sequence below.

dionne-warwick-biopic

At a press conference during the Cannes Film Festival, Dionne Warwick announced an upcoming biopic based on My Life, As I See It: An Autobiography, Dionne. The book chronicled her life from the years 1962 to 1968. The 75-year-old legend also revealed the cast.

Former Destiny’s Child singer, LeToya Luckett would play Dionne, while Danny Glover and Olympia Dukakis were cast as Warwick’s father and Warwick’s mentor Marlene Dietrich respectively. However, the most interesting addition was Lady Gaga. Mother Monster was reportedly selected to play Cilla Black, Warwick’s “musical nemesis.” It appears Gaga’s involvment was false.

Considering it’s an action thriller, The Accountant is probably the most boring title you can pick. And speaking of the title, I saw more guns and ammo than I did balanced budgets. Maybe the film should’ve been called “Math Savant Assassin” instead 😉

Ben Affleck plays a socially awkward small-town CPA who freelances for a criminal organization. When a young accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) notices a discrepancy involving millions of dollars, she’s dragged into his dangerous double life. Maybe she can sing an a capella song to save the day. LOL

The Accountant Movie Synopsis

Christian Wolff (Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor and John Lithgow also star in the Gavin O’Connor-directed movie. The Accountant hits theaters on October 14. Check out the action-packed teaser trailer below.

Ben Fountain’s acclaimed war novel, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, won several year-end awards, most notably the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction. Ang Lee brings the 2012 novel to life on the silver screen with a star-studded cast and a cute newcomer named Joe Alwyn who plays the titular role. Damn, Alwyn is adorable 😉

Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk Description

The film is told from the point of view of 19-year-old private Billy Lynn (newcomer Joe Alwyn) who, along with his fellow soldiers in Bravo Squad, becomes a hero after a harrowing Iraq battle and is brought home temporarily for a victory tour. Through flashbacks, culminating at the spectacular halftime show of the Thanksgiving Day football game, the film reveals what really happened to the squad – contrasting the realities of the war with America’s perceptions. Ang Lee used new technology, shooting at an ultra-high frame rate for the first time in film history, to create an immersive digital experience helping him dramatize war in a way never seen before.

Among the big names featured in the cast include Chris Tucker, Garrett Hedlund, Vin Diesel, Steve Martin and Kristen Stewart.

Speaking of Stewart, props to her for reinventing herself from Twilight teen queen to critically-acclaimed respected actress. She’s really become a favorite among top directors and currently making a splash in Cannes this week promoting her two new films- Woody Allen’s Cafe Society and Olivier Assayas’ Personal Shopper. Congrats on all the success.

Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk fittingly marches into theaters on Veterans Day, November 11. Check out the intense first teaser below which features Alesso’s somber cover of David Bowie’s “Heroes (We Could Be).”

the-rock-jumanji-remake

Whether you like it or not, Jumanji is getting a reboot. If you’re in the camp that feels touching the Robin Williams classic is sacrilegious, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson promises fans that the late comedian will be honored in the new movie. You know what? I actually believe Johnson.

“The love and respect I have for this man is boundless,” Johnson wrote of Williams on Instagram. “You have my word, we will honor his name and the character of ‘Alan Parrish’ will stand alone and be forever immortalized in the world of Jumanji in an earnest and cool way.”

Joining The Rock in the reboot is his Central Intelligence co-star Kevin Hart. They now have a new member to the cast. The 44-year-old former wrestler took to Instagram to announce the latest addition. Find out who below and what he wrote about his new co-star.
