Ellen Page

  1. This Is the Only Video You Wanted From the Star Wars Table Read. We Know.

    Now do Jedi for the role reversal!

    Since you probably didn't get to see it for yourself, here's the moment from last night's Empire Strikes Back table read in L.A. when Ellen Page and Jessica Alba (Han and Leia) acknowledged their feelings for each other. If you listen closely, you can also join the cast in laughing at a very, um, enthusiastic audience member's reaction to the kissing narration.

  2. Jason Reitman Casually Makes Star Wars an LGBTQ Love Story by Casting Ellen Page as Han Solo

    "I love you." "I still have your virginity."

    Yesterday we told you about Jason Reitman casting none other than Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul as Luke in his live-read of Empire Strikes Back, but today we're even more impressed.

  3. Fight the Feels in the Last of Us Honest Trailer

    I... I can't do it. Oh, *bleep.* *Bleeeeep.*

    Screenjunkies' Honest Trailers made the brave move of taking on a fairly universally loved movie yesterday with Guardians of the Galaxy, and today's video game honest trailer follows suit with The Last of Us, which is pretty widely regarded as an awesome game. You have earned a trophy: Haters Gonna Hate.

  4. A Mom Explains Inception Like Only a Mom Can to Our Infinite Amusement

    I, too, thought Matt Damon was great in this movie.

    Movies retold by mom may be the single most relatable concept on YouTube. Poor Leo. Hey, he was great in those Bourne movies!

  5. Ellen Page and Kate Mara Are The True Detectives We Deserve In This Parody

    But not the ones we're actually getting, of course.

    Is it wrong that I would rather watch a whole season of Tiny Detective than a single episode of Vince Vaughn in actual True Detective?

  6. Hollywood is a Jerk: Kitty Pryde, Sexism, and Days of Future Past

    Essay

    I don’t like time travel. Excusing the excuse that it’s a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff, most Hollywood time travel consists of altering linear timelines to forestall mistakes, death, and apocalyptic disaster. At its best, it comes across as the screenwriting equivalent of a neat parlor trick, at its worst it’s sloppy, plot-hole-filled writing that has to use sci-fi mumbo-jumbo to cover its own tracks. But the latest time-jumping saga to hit the silver screen -- X-Men: Days of Future Past -- made pretty good on it promises with one major wrinkle; the film itself is an alternative timeline to what happened in the comics, for a not-so-mysterious reason. That reason is Ms. Shadowcat herself, Kitty Pryde, who, instead of being the time-traveling agent of change, acts as the supercharged battery that sends Wolverine back. Though we’ll get into the details below, a canon shift of this magnitude in book-to-film adaptation would normally inspire internet outrage, essays about the changes, and hot debate between fans. Instead, it seems that only a corner of the fan world—the one directly concerned with issues of female representation—has spoken up in opposition. Considering the canonical fanaticism that followed the introduction of a female character to The Hobbit films, you might think it strange to see such a dearth of dissent. Unless what we’re really looking at is the same thing in reverse, another classic case of – everyone say it with me now -- Hollywood sexism.

  8. Kitty Pryde Featured In New X-Men: Days Of Future Past Clip

    Many X-Men fans haven't been thrilled with the lack of Kitty Pryde in Days of Future Past considering the film is based on a comic book story where she features heavily. From what we've seen so far, it seems Hugh Jackman's Wolverine is taking her place storywise but Ellen Page still stars in the film. Here's a full clip revealed at the MTV Movie Awards last night featuring Kitty, Bishop, Sentinels, and more. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  12. Ellen Page Totally Down for a Joss Whedon Kitty Pryde Movie

    Mutatis Mutandis

    There are considerable legal hurdles to getting the Avengers and the X-Men together on the big screen, but there's no reason why we couldn't some day see the director of The Avengers take a vacation from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to visit the X-Men, maybe even to showcase a character that he focused a significant amount of his comic work on. And that character's actress, Ellen Page, is totally down with it.

  14. Ellen Page on The Last of Us ‘Ripping Off’ Her Likeness

    There Can Be Only One

    Blockbuster hit the Last of Us is gorgeous, gritty, and gripping; but there's one thing that has people scratching their heads. Is that Ellen Page? It's probably an accident, but there is something uncannily similar about her likeness and Ellie, one of two protagonists for the game. In a recent AMA ("Ask Me Anything") on Reddit, the actress commented on the resemblance.

  15. Yes, Ellen Page Knows Ellie From The Last of Us Looks Like Her, and She’s Not Happy About It

    So shut your gob, Banana!

    It must suck to be a celebrity who looks like a fictional character that wasn't actually played by you -- like, I bet at this point Nicolai Coster-Waldau wants to throttle everyone who's ever asked him about being Prince Charming from Shrek. So I understand why Ellen Page is kinda annoyed already that everyone's noticed what a striking resemblance she bears to the 14-year-old Ellie from The Last of Us. Now she's suggesting that they intentionally ripped off her likeness, which she really doesn't appreciate. Poor Ellie can't catch a break, huh?

  18. A Moment of Silence for the Kitty Pryde Movie, Destroyed by Wolverine: Origins

    Consider the Following

    I'll be the first person to stand up and defend Wolverine: Origins as a solidly entertaining movie with almost zero nutritional value. The fact is, that after X-Men: The Last Stand, the last thing I wanted was a movie that tried to get all philosophical with its mutant metaphor and instead presented its main characters as amoral hypocrites. I was perfectly ready for what Wolverine turned out to be: Hugh Jackman, a series of awkward celebrity cameos, and a See's Candy assortment of gleefully wire-fu fight scenes strung along on the thinnest of plots like brightly colored beads on a wire. But I'd be perfectly willing to trade Wolverine: Origins for a Kitty Pryde movie from all of the people who brought us Juno, because oh my gosh what would that movie even be like?
