Joss Whedon To Guide ‘Justice League’ As Zack Snyder Deals With Family Tragedy

8 hours ago

The superhero wars, the constant pitting of Marvel versus DC Films, doesn’t seem abate in the social media sphere, as both sides lob fiery tirades about why their team is better than the other. But let’s face it, these are just movies, and while that’s not to diminish the talents involved or the passion of the creatives, the responsibilities and realities of real life are always the number one priority, and today comes a bracing reminder of that fact.

Failure To Launch: ‘War Machine’ Starring Brad Pitt Is A Major Misfire [Review]

10 hours ago

You’ve heard the refrain from filmmakers before: making a movie is like going off to war. The director leads the troops, his actors are soldiers on the battlefield, and everyone leaves their loved ones behind for months. The crucial key to the battle plan is a vision and the unswerving belief in that ideal in the face of all odds and obstacles. For filmmakers, faith in what you’re doing — as you take the plunge and jump off the cliff to make a movie — is everything.

Inevitable ‘Resident Evil’ Reboot In The Works, James Wan Producing

10 hours ago

Last year, “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter” hit cinemas, but only the most naive could assume that Costantin Film, who own the movie rights for the big screen video game adaptation, would simply let the property fade away.

At the Cannes Film Festival, the company revealed that a reboot is in the works, but this should hardly be a surprise to anyone.

Rihanna & Lupita Nyong’o To Star In Buddy Movie Directed By Ava DuVernay For Netflix

10 hours ago

What started as a dream/meme on the internet has now become a real thing: Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o are going to make that buddy movie the webosphere wanted.

Ava DuVernay (“Selma,” “13th“) will direct the movie, which has been snatched up by Netflix. This whole thing is kind of crazy, with Twitter users essentially creating the project out of thin air.

Dragon War Gets Unleashed In New ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 7 Photos

11 hours ago

HBO is not going to let their rivals at Showtime, currently basking in the well-received return of “Twin Peaks,” dominate the news cycle. It’s likely no coincidence that the network decided to release some new photos for “Game Of Thrones” season 7 today, even if they’re mostly behind-the-scenes shots.

Jared Leto Becomes Chief Creative Officer At Film Streaming Service Fandor

12 hours ago

Whatever you might think of Oscar-winner Jared Leto, it can’t be argued that his talents are successfully spread across a vast array of media. For readers of this site he’s probably best known for his big screen work, but for many others around the world, he’s the frontman for the stadium-selling 30 Seconds To Mars. Moreover, Leto also owns a social media platform called VyRT (yeah, me neither) which makes this next bit of news slightly less surprising (though, it’s still pretty surprising).

Everything Changes For Will Arnett In New Trailer For ‘Flaked’ Season 2

12 hours ago

On the first season of “Flaked,” we met a self-help guru named Chip (Will Arnett) who desperately needed to turn his talents inward. But struggling with your demons isn’t easy and as the show progressed, it was clear that the wall of lies he had built was going to come crashing down, leaving Chip with some rather messy cleaning up to do.

‘American Gods’ Creator Bryan Fuller Compares ‘Alien: Covenant’ & ‘Prometheus’ To “Bad Friday The 13th Sequels”

13 hours ago

Despite a heavy marketing campaign that included multiple short film connections, and endless promotional material, “Alien: Covenant” limped into the box office this weekend. The followup to “Prometheus,” and the latest entry in the ongoing string of prequels that will eventually connect to “Alien” (though we’ll see if 20th Century Fox is still interested once they crunch the numbers on ‘Covenant’), generally scored well with critics, but there are a vocal minority who are completely baffled by the sheer idiocy of the characters in the film, and its predecessor.

Universal Officially Launches ‘Dark Universe’ Monster Movie Franchise

Announced even before cameras start rolling on this summer’s “The Mummy,” it was already known that Universal was developing a big monster movie franchise, in a bid to get into the cinematic universe game of their rivals, while also reviving classic catalog characters. Now, the endeavor has an official name.

The studio has announced that henceforth, their monster movie doings shall fall under the blandly named, Dark Universe banner.

‘Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ Is A Tedious, Rudderless Blockbuster Sequel [Review]

14 hours ago

An expensive, over-the-top “adaptation” of a theme park ride, Jerry Bruckheimer’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” seemed all but doomed to fail in 2003. The knives were out, the critics were skeptical, and the idea of story cobbled out of kiddie ride seemed preposterous. Astonishingly, and against all odds, director Gore Verbinski invigorated the often-dismissed pirate genre, with a cavalier spirit and rollicking, cartoonish exuberance. Add the surprisingly inspired performance by Johnny Depp as the almost immediately iconic Jack Sparrow and the result was swashbuckling entertainment with a capital E.

Tom Holland To Lead Long Developing Video Game Adaptation ‘Uncharted’

15 hours ago

As much as I’ve run down the crazy history of Sony‘s long brewing video game adaptation “Uncharted” multiple times, for those of you just playing catch up, here’s what you need to know. The studio has been trying to make a feature film out of the hit platformer for years now. At one time, some pretty big names kicked the tires, including David O. Russell who ambitiously wanted to bring in names like Mark Wahlberg, Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Scarlett Johansson.

Sometimes love isn’t enough to keep the smoldering fires of passion burning against the cold reality of real life. And that difficult crossroads is where the drama unfolds in Deb Shoval‘s “Awol.”

Starring Lola Kirke (“Mozart In The Jungle,” “Mistress America“) and Breeda Wool (“UnReal“), the story centers on a young woman and a married housewife who fall into a passionate affair, but one that may not survive their small town surroundings.

‘The Villainess’ Brings Terrific Action, But Muddled Storytelling [Cannes Review]

16 hours ago

Fourteen years after Park Chan-wook’s “Oldboy” took the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival, South Korean cinema still represents the vanguard of action cinema. It is not surprising, then, that with each edition the festival looks to the Korean peninsula to get things rowdy. Consequently, the country has been represented among Cannes’ Midnight selections for the last four years running. 2016 selection “Train to Busan” proved to be a watershed moment, going on to become a box-office hit internationally as well as in its home market.

‘How To Talk To Girls At Parties’ With Elle Fanning & Nicole Kidman Is Gloriously Bananas [Cannes Review]

16 hours ago

A hodgepodge of genres is splattered all over John Cameron Mitchell’s ludicrous (and ludicrously-titled) “How To Talk to Girls at Parties,” making for an incredibly brazen, outlandish, and totally bananas time at the movies. The creative collision of author Neil Gaiman and the director of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” is a match made in bizarro world heaven as ‘Girls’ thrusts a conventional coming-of-age premise into a romance-horror-comedy-sci-fi blender with the top off, twists the knob to max-level, and blasts the angriest Sex Pistols song you’ve ever heard in your life.

2 Wonderfully Eerie Clips From ‘The Killing Of A Sacred Deer’ With Colin Farrell & Nicole Kidman

17 hours ago

While the press screening for Yorgos Lanthimos‘ “The Killing Of A Sacred Deer” at Cannes erupted in boos, don’t let that fool you — it would hardly be the first time critics on the Croisette completely missed the boat on something that’s “absolutely fucking brilliant.” Indeed, the director of “Dogtooth” and “The Lobster” is back, and he’s operating completely on his own level, and you’re either along for the ride, or left behind.

Tim Roth Faces Off Against Christina Hendricks In Canada In Bloody First Trailer For TV Series ‘Tin Star’

17 hours ago

If the small-town happenings of “Twin Peaks” aren’t enough to fit the bill, then perhaps “Tin Star” will be a series you’ll want to track down. While likely not as straight up freaky as David Lynch‘s offering, it does share a parallel with its remote locations and seamy happenings occurring underneath an otherwise normal facade.

Starring Christina Hendricks and Tim Roth, the show follows a former UK cop who relocates with his family to the Canadian Rockies to become the local law enforcement, only to find himself up against some formidable, criminal opposition.

Return To ‘Twin Peaks’ With New Main Title Sequence, Featurettes, And More

18 hours ago

It’s hard to imagine a more anticipated TV revival than “Twin Peaks,” the quirky crime thriller that ran for two seasons in the early ’90s and followed idiosyncratic FBI agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) as he investigated the murder of Laura Palmer in the strange Washington town. The series defied genre — it was part mystery, often very funny, had supernatural elements, and was also a bit of a soap opera spoof — adding up to something that was completely original and what we consider now to be quintessential David Lynch.

Yorgos Lanthimos’ Ice-Blooded, Brilliant ‘The Killing Of A Sacred Deer’ With Colin Farrell & Nicole Kidman [Cannes Review]

18 hours ago

Maybe the second or third shot in Yorgos Lanthimos‘ “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” is of a hospital waste bin, over which Colin Farrell, as heart surgeon Steven Murphy, peels off his bloodied latex gloves post-surgery. Now, if you hold simultaneously in your head the established ideas of the surgeon-as-God and the director-as-God, then that suggests the surgeon equates to the director, and gives us a neat metaphor: “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” is Lanthimos with the gloves off, and it makes the absurd, amazing “The Lobster” seem like a warm and cuddly experience by comparison.

This review will cover the first two episodes of “Twin Peaks” that aired last night, May 21. **Spoilers ahead.**

“I’ll see you in 25 years,” were the last words Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) spoke to Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) in the season two finale of David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” back in 1991.
