The heist comedy stars Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keough, Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane, Katie Holmes, and a platinum-coiffed Daniel Craig.

As well as defending Gotham City from criminals, Batman must now face the challenge of raising the young boy he adopted.
As the hilarious trailer pointed out, Batman has appeared in many different incarnations and films over the last fifty years, but The Lego Batman Movie is the first one that’s out-and-out comedy since the days of Adam West (or arguably, George Clooney). Although technically a spin-off from 2015’s surprise smash The Lego Movie, there’s no real connection to that film’s world or narrative (apart »

"I'm really excited about it," the 32-year-old actress shared. "Every day I pinch myself. I can't believe that anyone is making this happen."
There was a time, Bell noted, when she didn't expect the movie to see the light of day.
"I pitched with Channing and then we kept thinking about it and saying, 'There's something here,' she explained. "We pitched it to Disney and it sort of just happened, and now I'm like, 'Is someone gonna take that back? Is someone gonna take that away from me right now? I hope not »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.
This Past Weekend:
The Lego Batman Movie won the weekend as expected, but not with nearly as much money as I had predicted, not besting the opening of The Lego Movie as expected, but instead ending up with a reasonable and not so bad $53 million. Fifty Shades Darker proved that the audience for movies based on the popular books was still great enough for it to win Friday with $21 million (to Lego Batman’s $15 million) and end up second for the weekend with a strong $46.6 million. That was still almost $40 million less than the opening of the previous movie Fifty Shades of Grey, but the sequel also didn’t have the benefits of Valentine’s Day and a four-day holiday. Coming in »

By the end of this month Mahershala Ali may very well have his first Oscar for Moonlight, and he’s already got a series of films in the pipeline. He appears in a biopic that premiered at Sundance, and has secured a bad guy part in Robert Rodriguez and James Camerson’s Alita: Battle Angel. But now reports indicate that he’ll be joining Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy in a long-awaited, high-profile prestige project: J.C. Chandor’s Triple Frontier, the drama that was once in the hands of Kathryn Bigelow. Ali is currently “in talks” for a role in the movie written by Mark Boal, that takes place in a South American region known for crime called “la triple frontera.” There is no word on who he or any of the other critically beloved men in this movie will play.

Av Club ignoring that nobody on god's green earth could possibly want to relive the election fiasco of 2016, Megan Ellison and Mark Boal (Zero Dark Thirty) are developing a miniseries about it right now. Too soon.
Cinesnark has an ode to Keanu Reeves, calling him 'the last great movie star.' I personally think the demise of the movie star is a myth (that's been being told my entire lifetime... and yet my lifetime has had plenty of new movie stars in it) but I tend to like pieces like this anyway because worshipping movie stars is fun

Mahershala Ali is a busy bee. After breaking into Hollywood’s big leagues through eye-catching performances in Netflix staples like House of Cards and Luke Cage, the actor is arguably one of the most in-demand stars of the moment, and Ali’s scenery-chewing work as Moonlight‘s volatile crack dealer Juan was duly honored with a SAG Award late last month.
Currently filming his part in Alita: Battle Angel, The Hollywood Reporter brings word today that Mahershala Ali has now entered negotiations to board Triple Frontier, the crime saga to be directed by J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year). Talks are ongoing, but should a deal place, Ali will star opposite Channing Tatum and Taboo‘s Tom Hardy, who each closed their respective deals back in January.

The film is set in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil where the Iguazu and Parana rivers converge — making “la triple frontera” difficult to monitor and a haven for organized crime.
The film was originally supposed to be writer Boal and director Bigelow’s follow-up to “The Hurt Locker,” with actors including Tom Hanks, Will Smith, and Leonardo DiCaprio at one point showing interest in joining the ensemble. “Triple Frontier” was put on hold when Bigelow and Boal decided to move on to “Zero Dark Thirty, »
