Ice Age: Collision Course Could Have Been Meatier But Instead It Crashes HardIt’s time to put this animated series on the extinct species list.
Five movies in, the Ice Age franchise has clearly run out of ideas. The latest installment, Ice Age: Collision Course, actually recycles a whole sequence formerly released as a separate short film titled Cosmic Scrat-tastrophe, which played ahead of last fall’s The Peanuts Movie. That same sequence was then reused as a teaser trailer for the new Ice Age sequel back in December.
Now, following some Cosmos-parodying voiceover from Neil deGrasse Tyson, the outer-space-set sequence opens the new feature, and the rehashing is a terrible way to start off. For adult fans of the animated series, anyway. Small children will likely appreciate the familiar beginning, just as they appreciate watching the other four Ice Age movies over and over and over.
Once again, because »

What's the use of getting all pissy about a kiddie cartoon? Watch Ice Age: Collison Course and see how you feel. The fifth entry in the Ice Age series is a loud, lazy, laugh-starved cash grab that cynically exploits its target audience (I use the term advisedly) by serving them scraps and calling it yummy. Even two-year-olds can see through the hustle.

This week we have a double dose of space-related issues, and some skeletons in the closet that have come back to life.
Manny and Diego? Check. Sid and Scrat? Yup. All the new Ice Age characters along the way? They’re back too! And you can also assume that Scrat, once again, has something to do with what’s happening in Ice Age: Collision Course. In an attempt to hide his acorn, Scrat awakens an ancient alien ship that transports him deep into space where he happens to bump into a few asteroids and put them on a collision course with Earth. Back on Earth, Manny and Sid are dealing with problems of their own, »

Welcome to another “Preview Reel” column, where we look at the week’s upcoming wide release movies. This week sees a couple of Hollywood’s most bankable franchises debut along with a new James Wan produced horror flick. Star Trek Beyond continues the voyages of the Starship Enterprise, Manny and the gang return in Ice Age: Collision Course, and a supernatural being terrifies in the dark in Lights Out. There’s a lot to choose from, so let’s break them down to see if any of them are worth your time.
What we are excited about:
The franchise has been on a hot streak ever since it was rebooted by J.J. Abrams in 2009. Abrams was able to inject new life into the aging franchise because of his kinetic directing style and terrific young cast. The whole cast is back, and while Abrams is only producing this time, »

Setting the release date of theatrical films is almost a scientific undertaking. There are many factors to consider – including the optimization of the target demographic, in-theatre competition and the possibility of awards success. The Weinstein Company has a wealth of experience in this arena, which means any alteration to the release of a Weinstein Company movie is a notable event – and The Founder is no exception.
“Written by Robert Siegel (Big Fan), The Founder is a drama that tells the true story of how Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton), a salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California. Kroc was impressed by the brothers’ speedy system of making the food and saw franchise potential. He maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire.”

The cast for the third season of FX’s Fargo is starting to come together, as TV Line recently revealed the news that The Leftovers actress Carrie Coon has landed the female lead role opposite The Impossible and Beauty and the Beast actor Ewan McGregor. While McGregor will portray a set of twins, Emmit and Ray Stussy, Coon’s character will be that of Gloria Burgle, “a practical woman who grabs the fire extinguisher when the bacon catches fire and everyone else panics.”
Showrunner Noah Hawley previously announced that the new season, which is the most modern yet, would take place in the year 2010; seasons 1 and 2 took place in 2006 and 1979, respectively. Setting the show during this decade sounds like it will affect how Coon’s Gloria operates, as the rest of the character description mentions that she is the “chief of police in Edna Valley and a newly divorced mother »

Universal is in the process of creating a classic horror creatures franchise, following the interconnected tentpole blueprint laid out by Marvel Cinematic Universe. They’ve already scored top-tier talent such as Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, and Russell Crowe, and they are now eyeing Javier Bardem for the iconic role of Frankenstein’s monster, which was clarified by Variety‘s Justin Kroll:
To be clear, he would be playing the monster in some form not Victor

The No Country For Old Men star previously declined an offer to appear opposite Cruise in The Mummy, a role which was deferred to Crowe. It now seems as though there’s a spot for everyone in this monster mash, which Bardem will shoot after Darren Aronofsky‘s next project, which is currently in production. Bardem will also be seen in another big-budget feature when Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales »

Jennifer Lopez and Lin-Manuel Miranda turned tragedy into something positive last week by releasing “Love Make the World Go Round,” a tribute to the victims of the Orlando shooting and their families.
On Monday, Lopez and Miranda performed the song live for the first time in front of an audience at NBC’s “Today.” The performance was attended by 50 survivors and family members of the Orlando shooting. “The world needs this right now — the world really needs the message of love being the answer,” Lopez said. “That’s what really matters and that’s what makes the world go ’round, and nothing else. Hate, anger — it’s not going to get us anywhere.”
Monday marked the second day of Miranda’s post-“Hamilton” career. The star and creator of the hit musical turned out his final performance on Saturday night. Javier Muñoz takes over for Miranda starting Monday. “Hamilton” earned »

On Thursday, July 14, the Television Academy will announce the nominees for the 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, and we have all the faith in the world they’ll get every single choice just right.
Ok, maybe they won’t, but only because the 19,000-plus voters literally can’t get every choice right. Unless all the categories squeeze out miraculous ties resulting in extra nominees — similar to last year’s Comedy Supporting Actress category — there are simply too many outstanding series and performers to fit on the overall ballot.
So our choices below not only represent IndieWire’s highest recommendations in the top-line limited series and movie categories, but also some of the shows and performers overlooked thus far in the campaign season. On a related note, category placement is determined, aptly, by our own wishes and not the submission guidelines of the TV Academy. It would be grand to hear »
