Jude Law Is Supposedly Playing Mar-Vell in Captain Marvel - Here's Why He's So Important

  • Popsugar
With Marvel's latest edition of the Captain Marvel trailer, there are a lot of questions about the people associated with Carol Danvers and her group of "noble warrior heroes." The new footage gives small glimpses of the other Kree members who make up Danvers' task force, but the one who has everyone's interest particularly piqued is the original Captain Marvel, known as Mar-Vell.

In the comics, Mar-Vell is a captain in the Kree Space Fleet (the Starforce in the film) who is known for his numerous victories against the Skrull for the Kree Empire. He is sent to observe Earth along with his commanding officer, Colonel Yon-Rogg, and adopts the identity of recently deceased scientist Dr. Walter Lawson. While on Earth, Mar-Vell keeps an eye on Earth's progress toward developing means of space travel and meets Carol Danvers, a Nasa security officer. The two grow close over time,

‘Captain Marvel’: Brie Larson Flies Into Brazil’s Comic Con Experience With New Footage
Fresh off the ’90s superHERo awesomeness of the new Captain Marvel trailer, Brie Larson flew into Brazil’s Comic Con Experience (Ccxp) in Sao Paulo to talk about the forthcoming Marvel Studios film.

Larson participated in a panel and also shared footage and an extended trailer from the comic book flick with the packed audience. But if you’re looking for that footage, you probably not going to find it because it was exclusive to Ccxp.

However, the Academy Award-winning actress tweeted a video of the crowd which was massive. “Look at these gorgeous humans feeling all the feels with me after watching exclusive footage from #CaptainMarvel,” she wrote.

In addition, Marvel Studios tweeted out a new Captain Marvel poster which is exclusive to Ccxp. It features Larson in full Captain Marvel regalia and gives off some serious comic book HERo vibes.

Natalie Portman and Raffey Cassidy on ‘Vox Lux’ and the Film’s Dark, Violent Opening

Director Brady Corbet's Vox Lux is like the warped, nasty sibling of A Star Is Born. The film starts, quite literally, with a bang, when teenager Celeste (Raffey Cassidy) is the sole survivor of a school shooting. Footage of Celeste singing at a memorial service sweeps the nation, blasting the young girl into the pop-star stratosphere thanks to Jude Law's savvy talent manager. Flash-forward a decade or two and Celeste—now played by Natalie Portman, going all out for this role—is a Gaga-esque superstar, but the years in-between have sharpened her naive edges …

Trailers of the Week: ‘Avengers 4,’ ‘GoT’ Final Season Teaser, ‘Captain Marvel’

This week, three major 2019 releases gave us a taste of what’s to come: We finally got a look at the last Avengers movie (or at least the last one with the original line-up); another McU property dropped a longer, juicier trailer; and HBO’s monster-hit showed us a chilly version of the coming winter in Westeros. Also, because man can’t live on cinematic and premium-cable cheeseburgers alone, there we were gifted with a look at next year’s big Shakespeare bio-drama from Kenneth Brannagh and a Netflix doc on social-media celebrity.

‘Neo Yokio: Pink Christmas’: This Netflix Special Breaks Through the Holiday Noise

‘Neo Yokio: Pink Christmas’: This Netflix Special Breaks Through the Holiday Noise
Neo Yokio” is a show wholly committed to its aesthetic, and the Netflix series’ holiday special “Neo Yokio: Pink Christmas” contains the same idiosyncratic charm that made its first season a singular delight. It opens with a wintery remix of its iconography, complete with a scoreboard ranking the fictional city’s eligible bachelors and a snowy overview of its fantasy version of New York (centuries after the end of a demon war that left parts of the city underwater).

Even as the special references its anime ancestors, “Pink Christmas” also revels in its own bizarre framework. Arrangements of “O Tannenbaum” and “Greensleeves” slide right alongside the show’s usual Baroque-heavy background music. The Homer-sampling narration sets up a world where people have casual chats about the potential presence of evil, shapeless forces the same way they talk about hosting podcasts and using social clout.

Ex. Natalie Portman and Raffey Cassidy talk Vox Lux, Sia and pop music!

  • JoBlo
This year has seen a number of musicals that have captured audiences imaginations. Yet, I’ve seen nothing like the latest from actor/director/writer Brady Corbet. Vox Lux is a strange fever dream of a flick, one that features the music of Sia and stars Natalie Portman, Jude Law, Willem Dafoe and Raffey Cassidy. The film examines a pop star who gained fame after surviving a school shooting. It is a mix of music and modern tragedy, all of which play a part in Portman's Celestes' life.…

Natalie Portman movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Black Swan,’ ‘Vox Lux,’ ‘Jackie,’ ‘Closer’
Natalie Portman could find herself back in the Oscar race with “Vox Lux,” Bradey Corbet‘s satire about a vain pop star plotting a comeback tour. The film, which opens in limited release on Friday, December 7, is the star’s second title this year following Alex Garland‘s sci-fi thriller “Annihilation,” which bowed in February. But how do both titles rank within her filmography? In honor of her stellar year, let’s take a look back at 15 of Portman’s greatest movies, ranked worst to best.

SEENatalie Portman Interview: ‘Vox Lux

Portman made her acting debut when she was just 13-years-old with “Leon: The Professional” (1994), which cast her as a teenager teaming up with a hitman (Jean Reno) to avenge her family’s murder.

Listen to Sia’s Song ‘Wrapped Up’ Performed by Natalie Portman From ‘Vox Lux’ (Audio)
Thank goodness for new music Fridays. The Sia-penned song “Wrapped Up,” as performed by Natalie Portman and Raffey Cassidy in their new film “Vox Lux,” hit Spotify Friday.

And as we said about the emotional, power-pop anthem when the film’s second trailer posted, it’s a jam.

“Hey, turn the light on/cause I’ve got no one to show me the way,” Portman sings to open the track. “Please, I will follow/because you’re my last hope, I’ll do anything you say.”

Natalie Portman shines in the otherwise confounding “Vox Lux”

Some movies are made to be challenging. From top to bottom, they’re meant to not be easy viewing. There’s nothing wrong with that. There just has to be a method for the madness. In the case of Brady Corbet’s sophomore outing Vox Lux, however, that never fully seems to be the case. There’s ambition for days, but it never feels like it amounts to too much. It’s a whole lot of sound and fury, signifying nothing. Surface level critiques and satire may pique your interest initially, but they can’t sustain for two hours. Despite some solid acting, this never manages to be anything other than a letdown. The film is a drama about the bizarre reasoning for a pop star to have found her success. Spanning about 18 years, it starts in 1999 and finishes in 2017. In the 90’s section, Celeste (Raffey Cassidy as the child

Vox Lux Review: Natalie Portman Gives an Annoying Lady Gaga Impersonation

Vox Lux Review: Natalie Portman Gives an Annoying Lady Gaga Impersonation
Vox Lux is an artsy, flash and sizzle take on the pitfalls of celebrity. It's initially gripping. Told in several acts, the first one grabs you like a peregrine falcon snatches a rabbit. The film then becomes overblown and gaudy, on purpose; hammering in its message ad nauseum. Whatever interest Vox Lux earns peters away by the tiresome climax. Style never trumps substance, no matter how earnest the delivery.

Vox Lux opens in working class Staten Island, New York before the millennium. A waif thin teenage girl, Celeste (Raffey Cassidy), is injured in a horrific school shooting. She spends her recovery writing songs in the hospital with her devoted older sister, Ellie (Stacy Martin). At the funeral for her classmates, Celeste sings a tribute written by her and Ellie. The nation is transfixed by her music and struggle. Her parents hire a manager (Jude Law) to explore all possibilities.

Here’s what our writers made of this latest peek at the Brie Larson-headlined superhero blockbuster…

Gary Collinson: Although I was already sold on the movie, I much preferred this second trailer to the first. I’m buying Brie Larson in the role, and there’s a fantastic supporting cast around her. Seems very promising.

Calum Petrie: Looks like a fresh, strong entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Chris Cooper: Didn’t blow me away but I am looking forward to seeing another aspect of the McU. Cool to see the Mohawk!

Natalie Portman Apologizes to Jessica Simpson for ‘Virgin’ in a Bikini Comment

Natalie Portman Apologizes to Jessica Simpson for ‘Virgin’ in a Bikini Comment
Natalie Portman has apologized to Jessica Simpson after the singer called out Portman’s comments about Simpson posing in a bikini on a 1999 magazine cover that also declared that Simpson was a virgin.

“I would never intend to shame anybody and that was absolutely not my intention,” Portman told Entertainment Tonight Wednesday night. “I was really talking about mixed media messages out there for young women and completely apologize for any hurt it may have caused because that was definitely not my intention.”

Portman, who plays a fictional pop star in her new film “Vox Lux,” mentioned Simpson while praising Madonna for being a strong role model when she was growing up.

Jude Law on Tackling School Shootings in 'Vox Lux':
In recent years, as mass shootings have become more and more common in the United States, there has been national debate over when the right time is to discuss gun control and preventative action. According to the cast and crew of Vox Lux, the time is now.

New Captain Marvel Trailer Has Landed

Marvel is definitely setting up for the hype for the upcoming film “Captain Marvel”, as they have just unleashed the second trailer which focuses on the adventures of Carol Danvers a.k.a. Captain Marvel set in the early nineties way before the events that took place in “Avengers: Infinity War”.

Captain Marvel will don her Kree warrior suit after landing on Earth as the battle rages on with the Skrull, a group of shape-shifting aliens who can pass themselves off as human beings. We see Captain Marvel coming up against Nick Fury and the trailer even gives us a small Easter egg, as Fury is seen wearing the same device that he uses to call Danvers just before he fades to dust particles in “Avengers: Infinity War”.

Captain Marvel” is co-written and co-directed by Anna Broden and Ryan Fleck, and stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou,

‘The Favourite’, ‘Mary Queen Of Scots’, ‘Vox Lux’, ‘Ben Is Back’ & More Banking On Quiet B.O. Weekend & Potential Golden Globe Love

  • Deadline
While last weekend with $118.2M in ticket sales was considered to be slow given its overall -45% drop from the previous Black Friday 3-day period, this weekend’s box office will ratchet down even more as the major studios opt to hold back on any wide entries. Again, this is due to the annual distraction of holiday activities; their thinking is that it’s better to starting teeing off next weekend and play into Christmas, after which point moviegoing explodes.

What is going on this weekend is that those distributors with awards season fare are looking to take advantage of the lull by either launching new titles or widening movies which might turn up at tomorrow’s Golden Globes. It will certainly be a weekend weighed by the power of the screen average.

In regards to the top three holdovers, look for them to ease 35% to 40% each and that includes

‘Vox Lux’ Review: Natalie Portman’s Pop-Star Blues

‘Vox Lux’ Review: Natalie Portman’s Pop-Star Blues
Brady Corbet’s knockout of a second feature (following 2015’s The Childhood of a Leader, about the growing pains of a fascist tyrant) damn near explodes off the screen. Yes, a movie about the traumatic childhood that formed a formidable pop diva might be too much for some people. But this actor-turned-director doesn’t use Vox Lux to show off … though there is admittedly a little of that. And you should prepared to be wowed by Natalie Portman, who delivers a take-no-prisoners performance as Celeste, a swaggering rock diva who

Captain Marvel’s Brie Larson isn’t interested in the “first female Marvel movie” tag

It’s been a long time coming, but we’re now only a few months away from the release of Marvel Studios’ first female-led superhero blockbuster Captain Marvel. And following the release of yesterday’s new trailer, Brie Larson has been chatting to Collider about the movie, during which she was asked how she felt about being the first actress to headline a movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“I don’t know,” said Larson. “I don’t know how it’s any different. To be honest, I don’t want it to feel different. Kind of over the first female blah, blah, blah. And like, ‘Wow, maybe women can actually do the same things that dudes can do. Like, what a crazy concept!’ You know what I mean? I feel like the more we talk about it, the more we perpetuate the myth that it’s an impossible task.
