San Diego Comic-Con is now in full swing, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for the rest of the weekend!

While Comic-Con rages on in southern California, the rest of the film world goes on, and inevitably some trailers get released that don’t have to do with cosplayers or Hall H panels. Such is the case with 2 trailers released today, which have us just as excited as anything Comic-Con is offering.

Firstly, Jd Salinger biopic Rebel in the Rye finally has a first trailer, and it looks like it should do justice to the life of the notoriously mysterious and secretive "Catcher in the Rye" author. Nicholas Hoult stars as the young titular rebel Salinger, »

Today marks the first full day of San Diego Comic-Con, one of the biggest fan-based events in the world. Generally, the biggest releases have their panels over the weekend, and that’s when the stars turn up to reveal exciting news about some of our favourite Marvel, DC, and Disney properties. So, stay tuned to see what kinds of crazy news comes out of Hall H!

Today, however, saw the release of a few trailers that have us just as excited as anything coming out of Comic-Con. The first is the new trailer for Jigsaw, which is essentially an origin story for the ultra-creepy villain of the Saw series. Expect lots of gore and increasingly creative torture devices, along with some dark humour to boot. »

Ingrid Goes West and social media in film

20 July 2017 10:55 AM, PDT

Ingrid Goes West and social media in filmIngrid Goes West and social media in filmAdriana Floridia7/20/2017 12:55:00 Pm

We're living in the age of social media, so it only makes sense that our movies would reflect that too.

Platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more are new factors to consider when writing a screenplay. These new methods of communication and connection are changing how characters in films interact. No longer does it really make sense to have the same "meet-cutes" in romantic comedies when the majority of people are meeting through online dating, and characters now might communicate via text message as opposed to calling each other on the phone. These are all new things to consider in film, as movies should be a reflection of our present day reality, unless they're set in another time period.

Then there are films that use social media as their entire premise, »

Behind the scenes at IMAX for Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk

There are few directors who are as concerned with preserving and enhancing the cinematic experience the way Christopher Nolan is.

Constantly improving and finding new ways to tell stories, with Dunkirk, Nolan made the film using IMAX cameras for about 70% of the shoot (which is more than nearly any film before it).

Nolan's World War II film follows allied soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire and France who are surrounded by the German army and evacuated during an intense battle.

We're super pumped to see Dunkirk, especially knowing the visual spectacle it'll be. Our very own Tanner Zee visited IMAX to learn more about their technology and the immersive experience that they provide.

Stephen King is a master of horror, and the films made from his books are some of the most iconic in history.

We're beyond excited for two new movies this year, both based on his work. The Dark Tower is getting its first film adaptation with Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in leading roles, and It is getting a remake (the trailer is already giving us crazy chills).

While one film is about an alternate post-apocalyptic reality and the other is about a scary clown, we know that no matter what it is, if Stephen King is involved, it'll be epic. Check out our supercut of Stephen King adaptations below, and look out for The Dark Tower when it hits theatres Friday August 4th, »

The Snowman and The Shape of Water both get new trailers in today's roundupThe Snowman and The Shape of Water both get new trailers in today's roundupAmanda Wood7/19/2017 3:33:00 Pm

Today was a great day for cool movies that we almost forgot existed. Luckily, The Snowman and The Shape of Water both released trailers today that quickly reminded us both of their existence and how excited we are for their releases.

The Snowman comes from Tomas Alfredson, who brought us such high-intensity gems as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Let the Right One In. It stars the always-excellent Michael Fassbender as a detective searching for an elusive serial killer who finds gruesomely creative ways to use the winter landscape as a tableau in which to display his victims. Rebecca Ferguson, Jk Simmons, Chloe Sevigny, and Val Kilmer round out the cast. Catch The Snowman in Cineplex theatres October 20th. »

Valerian: The City of a Thousand Planets’ Cara Delevingne on getting the part of a lifetime

Valerian: The City of a Thousand Planets’ Cara Delevingne on getting the part of a lifetimeValerian: The City of a Thousand Planets’ Cara Delevingne on getting the part of a lifetimeMarni Weisz - Editor, Cineplex Magazine7/19/2017 10:00:00 Am

Cara Delevingne acted like a real animal to get the role of interplanetary special-ops agent Laureline in Luc Besson’s eye-candy spectacular Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

If you’re expecting a story about a spoiled model-turned-actor throwing a tantrum to get a super-fun part in one of the summer’s biggest sci-fi films, you’re going to be disappointed. But the real story’s pretty good too.

It’s about Delevingne’s unconventional audition with the visionary French director Besson (Leon: The Professional, The Fifth Element), who was finally set to make a big-screen version of his favourite childhood comic book, Valérian and Laureline, by French writer Pierre Christin. »

In today’s exciting movie news, three very different movies got new trailers – and they all look great.

First up is the brand new trailer for The Disaster Artist, which details the making of what many consider to be the worst movie ever made, Tommy Wiseau’s The Room. James Franco does double duty directing and starring, with his brother Dave Franco and longtime collaborator Seth Rogen rounding out the cast. The Disaster Artist looks hilarious, and we can’t wait to see Franco’s take on this cult classic.

The Disaster Artist hits Cineplex theatres this December.

Next, we have another first trailer, this time for Alpha. Set 20,000 years ago, Alpha follows a young boy (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who must fight to stay alive after »

Our favourite Christopher Nolan scenes in time for Dunkirk

Our favourite Christopher Nolan scenes in time for DunkirkOur favourite Christopher Nolan scenes in time for DunkirkAdriana Floridia7/18/2017 12:23:00 Pm

Christopher Nolan is a one-of-a-kind filmmaker whose legacy is undeniable.

This is the man responsible for an impeccable merging of genres that create magical and spell-binding human dramas, and he always leaves us with our jaws dropped.

Arguably the best superhero series ever is Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, where he took the most prolific hero of them all, Batman, and created a dark and sinister series that contains what many would consider the best film of its kind ever made, The Dark Knight. He is the master of making challenging cinema that still manages to have a blockbuster appeal, with films like Inception, The Prestige and Memento.

This week Nolan returns with his highly anticipated World War II film, Dunkirk. It's a big shift for the filmmaker, and early »

5 Reasons to see The Big Sick if you haven't already (or even if you have)5 Reasons to see The Big Sick if you haven't already (or even if you have)Jenny Bullough7/18/2017 10:37:00 Am

We can't blame you if you haven't yet seen the year's most talked-about comedy, The Big Sick. It's only been out for a few weeks, and its initial release was limited to a smaller number of theatres. However, you're about to run out of excuses as this small indie has become a huge phenomenon and is now in wide release!

Written by Kumail Nanjiani and his real-life wife Emily V. Gordon, the movie stars Nanjiani as himself when he was a young comic. He meets and falls in love with Emily (played by Zoe Kazan), but their relationship is complicated by the fact that his traditional Pakistani-American parents want him to marry a Pakistani girl. »

This weekend was a big one in the world of movie news, with the star-filled D23 Expo providing glimpses into some of Disney’s most anticipated properties (Star Wars! A Wrinkle in Time! Aladdin!). There was also some non-Disney related news, including some unfortunate deaths of industry greats. 

One of the first things to come out of D23 was the first trailer for Ava DuVernay’s starry adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time, based on the classic young adult novel by Madeleine L’Engle. Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and Oprah (!!!) star in this intergalactic tale of a precocious young girl on a quest to save her father from an evil force known only as The Darkness. »

Chances are you've never seen a romantic comedy as rooted in reality as The Big Sick.

Written by real-life couple Kumail Nanjiani ("Silicon Valley") and his wife Emily V. Gordon, The Big Sick tells the true story of their relationship and the struggles that led to their eventual happy ending. Kumail's traditional Pakistani parents want him to marry a Pakistani woman, and are constantly trying to set him up in an arranged marriage. This creates a big problem when he meets and falls in love with Emily, who he has to date in secret in order to not be disowned by his family. Things become even more complicated when Emily becomes sick »

Another D23, a massive Disney fan event, is now behind us. Over the weekend, the Anaheim convention centre was transformed into the ultimate Disney fan HQ with autograph signings by stars, fan photo ops, and all kinds of exclusive merch. It also turns into the hub of entertainment news, with 3 days of big, star-filled panels. While that was happening, I was busy covering the red carpet behind the stage, talking with all the filmmakers and stars, while a crowd of thousands of fans erupted at the big announcements being made on the other side of the wall. I did run into a few Canadian fans on the convention floor over the weekend, but in case you weren’t there, »

Quiz: Do you know these facts about War movies?

Quiz: Do you know these facts about War movies?Quiz: Do you know these facts about War movies?Garrett McCormick and Amanda Wood7/17/2017 10:00:00 Am

Dunkirk certainly does not mark the first time World War 2 has been depicted on film, but it does mark the first time the great Christopher Nolan is tackling the subject. War movies are a dime a dozen nowadays, but we’re sure that Dunkirk won’t be like anything we’ve seen before.

Nolan’s Dunkirk tells the amazingly true story of Allied soldiers stranded on a beach in enemy territory with no real method of getting home. Scores of civilians took to the water to help bring troops back home, but many lives were lost along the way. Dunkirk, which looks as gripping as any of Nolan’s other films, stars Kenneth Branagh, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, and newcomer Fionn Whitehead.
