Fall is a special time of year. Leaves slowly turn a different color. Daylight savings time gives us all a reason to fall back. And there are movies. Great, glorious, marvelously crafted movies! With the help of L.A. Weekly, we're breaking down exactly what you'll want to see and what you might not want to waist your time on over these last four months of 2017. Between It and Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we're getting a lot of crazy, cool cinematic excursions, some Oscar hopefuls and others not so much. But whatever it might be, we're sure there is an audience out there for it somewhere.
Many people wait for this time of year. They spend the majority of their time watching all the hot new TV shows. But there will still be a reason to get out of the house on the weekends. As Hollywood is making one »
With its cinematic universe well established, Marvel looked to television to expand its screen presence. First came Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on the ABC broadcast network in 2013. Later that year, we heard about their ambitious plan for four interconnected series on Netflix that would culminate in a team-up series, The Defenders. It was easy enough to assume that Marvel was following its pattern of introducing superheroes in individual film installments, leading to its grand teamup, The Avengers. First out of the gate on Netflix, Daredevil successfully launched, thanks in no small part to the casting of Charlie Cox as the titular character. He spoke quietly, almost in a hush. The series featured a superb adversary in Vincent D'Onofrio and strong supporting performances by Rosario...

When Charles Bronson starred as the vengeful architect Paul Kersey in 1974's Death Wish, he helped kick off a franchise that lasted for well over a decade. And now, thanks to director Eli Roth, the franchise is back with a new Paul Kersey - this time played by Bruce Willis, in full-on grump mode.
The big twist this time is that Kersey's a surgeon rather than an architect. When dreadful things happen to his wife and daughter, Kersey takes to the streets in a hoody and becomes a gun-wielding harbinger of death. Because the new Death Wish is directed by Roth, Kersey also uses »
"He's become a folk hero." MGM has released the first official trailer for Eli Roth's new remake of the 1974 action movie Death Wish, which originally starred Charles Bronson. This new version of Death Wish stars Bruce Willis as a doctor at a hospital who decides to become a silent vigilante when his family is assaulted. But, of course, the city begins to question whether he is a is a guardian angel or a grim reaper. Such a cliche story, but maybe it'll be entertaining. Let's hope it's not a total waste. This also stars Vincent D'Onofrio, Elisabeth Shue, Camila Morrone, Jack Kesy, Dean Norris, Beau Knapp, Kirby Bliss Blanton, and Mike Epps. This looks like a gritty thriller, but doesn't look like it has anything new to offer. Check it. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Eli Roth's Death Wish remake, direct from YouTube: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer presents director »

Wow... This is going to be a polarizing one. In the category of remakes that no one asked for, Eli Roth's Death Wish trailer dropped today. In an utter tone death move, AC/DC's "Back in Black" (a song usually used for revving up audiences for a feel-good reaction) plays while Paul Kersey asks a child in a hospital bed about who's been terrorizing him. Due to hit theaters on November 22 to capitalize on the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, Death Wish stars Bruce Willis as Paul Kersey, alongside Vincent D'Onofrio and Elisabeth Shue. What do you think? Will you be seeing the Death Wish remake?...

The bloodshed has begun at NBC.
Short-order drama Emerald City has been canceled after one underwhelming season.
The series, a modern version of The Wizard of Oz based on L. Frank Baum's Oz book series, had a nearly two-year journey from script to screen. The drama now has the distinction of being canceled not once, but twice, as the Vincent D'Onofrio starrer was picked up straight to series and scrapped before being revived with another writer months later.
The drama disappeared just as quietly as it opened, despite the impressive names attached, including acclaimed director Tarsem Singh and D'Onofrio as the Wizard. The »

If you haven't caught up yet, Their Finest is currently playing in UK cinemas and it's a gorgeous little love letter to perseverance through storytelling, set against the backdrop of a film production office at the British Ministry of Information during the Second World War. Based on Lissa Evans' novel, Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy play characters whose access to the film industry has been contingent on the global crisis that takes other young men away from such trifling matters, and it's a real joy to watch.
Among other things, the film got us thinking about other films about making films. We're not talking about documentaries, even though Hearts Of Darkness, the documentary about the making of Apocalypse Now, may be the greatest film about »
