New ‘Black Panther’ Footage Gets Standing Ovation at Comic-Con

22 July 2017 7:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Who was happier to see new “Black Panther” footage at San Diego Comic-Con: The fans or the cast?

It was a close call as the audience in Hall H on Saturday leapt to its feet, while the star-studded ensemble grinned and joined together for a group hug. The moderator of Marvel’s panel on Saturday, Chris Hardwick, informed the crowd that the stars had just seen the fresh film footage for the first time as well. Basically, it was loud.

Director Ryan Coogler introduced the footage, which was for the Comic-Con crowd’s eyes only, following a brief Q&A with a long lineup of cast members, including Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.

‘Twin Peaks: The Return': Guns, Pie, and a Vortex in the Sky in “Part 11″

3 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If nothing else, "Part 11"  of Twin Peaks: The Return gave us our first tangible link between the world of Twin Peaks and the black-and-white nightmare that emerged about 10 minutes into the now-classic "Part 8" since that episode ended. The dimensional vortex, for lack of a better descriptor, that Gordon sees at the site of Hastings and Ruth's trip into the unknown brought us into another room on the other side, where the demonic homeless people stared vacantly and unmoved at the new visitor before Albert thankfully pulled Gordon out. Then Hastings got his head … »

All by myself: how the greatest solo film performances worked their magic

3 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With Anne Hathaway set to star in a film that she will carry on her own, we ask: what can she learn from previous high points of single-actor shows

In Les Miserables, Anne Hathaway won an Oscar for crying – but how is she with cryo? She’s just signed up for O2, a race-against-time movie centred on a woman who wakes up trapped in one of those sci-fi hypersleep pods so beloved of the Alien franchise. It sounds like a juicy premise for a tense thriller – O2’s amnesiac protagonist must escape before her air supply runs out – but it will also see Hathaway join a cinematic club currently dominated by men: movies that are solo showcases for one actor. What could Hathaway learn from other recent examples?

‘Game of Thrones’: Season 7, Episode 2 is ‘Stormborn’ [Recap]

4 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Sometimes it seems that it’s only called “Game of Thrones” since “Family Matters” was already taken. Family problems. We all got ‘em, they’re just a whole lot worse in Westeros. Marauding pirate uncles, undermining sisters, long-lost nephews—it’s all just a stew of madness and warring bloodlines. That’s never more evident than in Season 7, Episode 2, “Stormborn,” written by Bryan Cogman, directed by Mark Mylod.

‘Game of Thrones’ Recap: “Stormborn” – Queen of the Ashes

4 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If you were one of the Game of Thrones viewers who thought the Season 7 premiere was slow, then you probably loved this week’s episode. While “Dragonglass” arguably spent too long re-establishing characters and situations we already understood, “Stormborn” wasted no time changing the game. Dany makes her move A storm is brewing at Winterfell, but Dany and her advisors are safe within Dragonstone… at least for one scene. Now that the gang has officially made it to Westeros, it’s time to shore up their forces and come up with a plan. (Apparently, everyone was too seasick … »

‘Game of Thrones’ Review: Family Means Nothing in ‘Stormborn,’ As History Begins to Die Too

5 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Game of Thrones” Season 7, Episode 2, “Stormborn.”]

Family has meant nearly everything in the world of “Game of Thrones.” The reputation of notable houses, the legacy of rulers and great men that line those history books have done as much to guide the actions of these characters as their own instincts. But after the events of “Stormborn,” that guiding principle of using the past to help shape the future looks to be as outdated as it’s ever been.

Take Aerys Targaryen, the Mad King whose very nickname casts a shadow on Westeros’ coming war, even after his successor’s successor’s successor has been wiped from the throne. In Dany’s new stronghold of Dragonstone (introduced at the top of this episode like Xanadu or some Transylvanian castle from a pre-code monster flick), Varys’ past allegiances are the first to be questioned. Dany’s short learning curve as a leader has meant a careful weeding out »

‘Ballers’ Premiere Review: Season 3’s ‘Seeds of Expansion’ Promises to Extend The Action Beyond Miami

6 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More‘Ballers’ Season Finale Review: Here’s How Hard The Rock Balled in Season 2 [Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Ballers” Season 3, Episode 1, “Seeds of Expansion.”]

As always, the life of a baller is filled with ups and downs, especially on “Ballers.” Thus, in the season premiere, we see the beginning of key storylines for Vernon (Donovan Carter), Charles (Omar Miller) and Ricky (John David Washington): Vernon’s got a new apparel business in the works, Charles is taking on more responsibility as a member of the Dolphins’ front office… and whoops, looks like Ricky is going to be a father, courtesy of a not-so-stable past (and present) hook-up.

It’s an awful lot of set-up, which we’ll undoubtedly dig into more as the season progresses, but none of the questions surrounding those narratives are as important as this one…

‘Twin Peaks’ Review: Part 11 Puts a Funny Spin on David Fincher as Agent Cooper Edges Closer to Reality

6 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Twin Peaks: The Return” (2017), Season 3, Episode 11, “Part 11.”]

“Damn good” only begins to describe Part 11 of “Twin Peaks: The Return,” an episode in which a lot of pieces came together both for the series’ central mystery and within its hero’s restricted mind.

First, let’s address what’s in the box. For all the parodies and homages that reference David Fincher’s iconic scene in “Seven,” this one may take the cake– well, the pie. The long drive into the desert. The long row of telephone lines on the side of the road. A mysterious box. An unarmed man held at gunpoint. These are the same images that evoked trepidation in Fincher’s film, but Lynch created a playful tone for “Twin Peaks.”
