  1. Oh Nothing, Just Scarlett Johansson Being A Super-Human Badass In The International Lucy Trailer

    We Can Cause More Damage That Way

    Yes, none of us really appreciate the "10% of your brain" thing, or the possible racial issues which may come into play in Luc Besson's Lucy, but I'm pretty sure the only thing that will be running through my mind when seeing this film will be, "Black Widow, Black Widow, Black Widow, Black Widow, Black Widow."

  4. The Winter Soldier Scene That Scarlett Johansson Suggested Be Cut From the Film

    Consider the Following

    We're betting there's more than one deleted scene from Winter Soldier, five minutes of them, in fact. But according to the co-directors of the film, one Black Widow-heavy scene was cut on the suggestion of Scarlett Johansson herself.

  5. Captain America: The Winter Soldier Delivers Big Ideas, Bigger Explosions

    Review

    Whether punching out Hitler or hanging up his shield, Captain America has always been a barometer for America’s political atmosphere, a reliable gauge for what’s on the minds of the nation. In his latest adventure, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he is again, standing as a voice of reason in a high-octane action drama that concerns itself with the all-too-pertinent debate of freedom versus security. Those who found the first Cap adventure distasteful in its hamminess will be pleased to know that CA:TWS contains nothing of the kind, being a grim-faced thrill ride with no time to talk and no room for cheese. The jokes in Winter Soldier are spare and barely land, a testament to the film’s hard edge. But, unlike some of its dark-and-gritty peers in the superhero genre, a touch of darkness serves this sequel well, working for its covert ops setting instead of against it. Is the price of knowing SPOILERS a price you’re willing to pay?

  6. Review: Scarlett Johansson’s Under The Skin Has A Special Message For Men

    In the chilling science-fiction thriller Under The SkinThe Avengers' Scarlett Johansson plays a black widow of another kind. She's an extraterrestrial predator. With a camouflage of plump red lips, snug fitting acid washed jeans, a curvy figure and a battered van, she trolls the streets of Scotland looking for would-be lovers. But when she lures them back to her lair, these men discover they are just fresh meat in the literal sense. On its surface, this feature is a slick and sick bit of horror. But under the skin it is a lesson in rape culture targeted specifically at men. The gender dynamics of horror typically play out with killers being male and their victims being female. Under The Skin turns the tables on this traditional setup, and with it creates a reverse of contemporary rape culture where violence against women is so common that women are casually warned to be ever alert for those who might harm them. In rape culture, the blame for what might befall women is thereby put on their shoulders in place of their potential rapist. By and large men don't worry about their safety in the same way when walking home late at night. But in the world of Under The Skin, they absolutely should. As this review explores specific themes of the movie, heavy spoilers for Under The Skin lurk below:

  7. Scarlett Johansson & Luc Besson Team Up For The Black Widow Movie We Should Have Already Had [TRAILER]

    Ok, so Black Widow doesn't have powers but this is pretty much how I imagine a Natasha solo film going. Luc Besson is no stranger to creating films with interesting woman (The Fifth Element, La Femme Nikita, Léon: The Professional) and this time he's chosen Scarlett Johansson as his muse. She plays the title role of Lucy in this action-thriller and winds up with special powers after being kidnapped as a drug mule. Now might I make a suggestion? Everyone go see this film and prove to Marvel Entertainment a Black Widow solo film starring ScarJo needs to be made a priority.

    Sorry, Chris Evans fans, but after the actor finally hangs up his shield, whenever that is, he has no intention of returning to the movies... in front of the camera, anyway. I'm gonna go re-watch Sunshine and be sad.

  10. Hot Toys’ Black Widow, For All Your Tiny Scarlett Johansson Needs

    Supergirly

    Another Marvel movie, another selection of eerily realistic action figures from Hot Toys, this time with everyone's favorite product of the Cold War, Black Widow. She even comes with lit-up Widows Bite gauntlets, the better to pose her electrocuting my Lex Luthor action figure. Or jumpstarting my Portal turret. Oh who am I kidding, I can't afford this figure, so, like you, I will be gazing at these scarily accurate pictures of it instead.
