Gal Gadot has been cast as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Warner Bros. Man of Steel sequel. The film, titled Batman vs. Superman, will also star Ben Affleck in his Batman debut and Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman.
Director Zack Snyder said in a statement, “Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.”
Inside Llewyn Davis, the latest installment in the Coen Brother's canon, depicts a time and place that not even the most hardcore Dylan fans will recognize. Stripped of its nostaglia and mystique, Greenwich Village is an entirely different character, filled with cramped, cheap apartments, cluttered coffeehouses, and the litter of broken dreams. Most music biopics tell a fast and loose story a young man crooning tunes in the studio and then belting them out in front of screaming fans before succumbing to heroin. Llewyn Davis takes a different approach, using a minimalist style to convey the stark realities of the starving artist.

There was a time in history when female punk bands ruled the world. Angsty rebel yells from women in bands like Bikini Kill, Hole, and Siouxsie and the Banshees were punk music’s secret weapon- tackling topics on sexuality, feminism, radicalism, etc.
The bristling attitudes that were pioneered from female punk bands set the groundwork for pop-punk and mainstream-pop female artists alike to come out tongues wagging, and gyrating on silver poles-proudly- in the magazines and on TV. One frontwoman in particular possessed the staying power to put the unbridled “fuck-all” attitude back on the map.

The classic 90’s teen film, 10 Things I Hate About You, that made the late Heath Ledger a heart throb, will soon have a long awaited sequel… well, kind of…
The original movie was based off Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, but the new movie will have an entirely different storyline and brand new characters. The plot will revolve around two people who meet before they are about to commit suicide, but instead end up falling for each other.
Does it surprise you to know that most of the Hollywood movies produced and targeted at women are made/written/directed by men? Because the reality is that only 12% of modern American films have a female writer on staff, only 4% are directed by women, and only 6% give women an equal voice in front of or behind the camera. Cathryn Michon wants to change that. She also wants to make you laugh your ass off in the process. The triple-threat writer, director, and actress has teamed up with some of our favorite female comedians in her latest movie Muffin Top: A Love Story. Not only is it the perfect girl’s night romantic comedy, but it features more women than any other film has done in the past three years. Furthermore, when the movie is over, you can pop in the accompanying original all-female soundtrack so you have something to dance to while you bask in the glow of feminism.
