‘Into The Forest’ Turns A Profoundly Human Eye To The End Of Humanity [Review]

57 minutes ago

This is a reprint of our review from the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. Patricia Rozema’s latest film “Into The Forest” begins in earnest with the end of the world. This is no fire-and-brimstone end of days, however. North America simply shuts down; wi-fi, phone signals, radio, electricity, all go kaput with no explanation provided […]

Oprah Winfrey and Ava DuVernay are developing quite the partnership.

Now, we can add “A Wrinkle in Time” to their […]

Producer Frank Marshall Says Joe Cornish’s Adaptation Of ‘Snow Crash’ Might Film In 2017

1 hour ago

It’s five long years since Joe Cornish marked himself as a genre director with considerable bite with the alien invasion flick “Attack The Block.” The film introduced the world to John Boyega who has since become a global star thanks to “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and also made Cornish highly sought after in Hollywood.

Even Jackie Chan’s Energy Can’t Save Renny Harlin’s ‘Skiptrace’ With Johnny Knoxville [Review]

3 hours ago

Montreal — Jackie Chan has had Chris Tucker and Owen Wilson assist him in past buddy-cop comedies. Movies like “Rush Hour” and “Shanghai Noon” were fun to watch, but they always had to rely on the chemistry that Chan would have with his co-star. The screenplays always played to the genre’s conventions, but never had […]

‘Stranger Things,’ ‘Bloodline,’ ‘Preacher’ & The Problems Of Plotting & Pacing In Peak TV

3 hours ago

Like many in the last couple of weeks, I’ve been watching and enjoying Netflix’s latest show, “Stranger Things.” A homage to 1980s sci-fi and horror stories like “E.T.,” “The Goonies,” “It” and “Predator,” among many others, the Duffer Brothers’ show might not have an original thought in its head, but it’s also eminently watchable and […]

If you were to ask me to select my 1000 favorite movies, I’d ask you to come back in a few weeks once I’ve carefully gone through multiple drafts, rewatched some films, and generally fretted over what made the cut. And while I don’t know how long it took Edgar Wright to pull together his […]

Guillermo Del Toro is known by many as the director responsible for some of the most visually stunning horror and fantasy films of the last 20 years.

Forget About That Theory You Had About The Joker In ‘Suicide Squad’

5 hours ago

It really doesn’t take much for a rumor about a comic-book movie to take hold. Remember when everyone was convinced that Scoot McNairy was playing The Flash in “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice“? Or wait, was it Jimmy Olsen? It turned out the correct answer was neither. And so, whatever you’ve heard about The […]

‘Pete’s Dragon’ Is A Lovely, Endearing & Homespun Antidote To Summer Movie Spectacle [Review]

6 hours ago

It can be easy to be cynical about Disney’s relentless franchise machine, a highly lucrative process that sees the studio reimagine, remake or prequel-/sequel-ize valued properties with big budgets and stars. While Disney cares about their legacy titles, they aren’t precious about them, and instead aim to reach a new generation of viewers with versions […]

First Trailer For M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Split’ Starring James McAvoy

7 hours ago

Sometimes, survival in Hollywood means leaning how to adapt, and credit to M. Night Shyamalan as he’s done just that. While kicking of his career with movies like “The Sixth Sense,” “Unbreakable,” and “Signs,” the director hit some serious bumps in the road, that would’ve stopped many filmmakers in their tracks (seriously, “The Last Airbender” would’ve […]

Matt Damon Talks The Disappearing Indie Film Market, While James Cameron Explains How To Save The Moviegoing Experience

7 hours ago

This weekend, Matt Damon returns to the big screen in the blockbuster “Jason Bourne.” It’s the character and franchise that saved the actor’s career after it went slightly sideways following “Good Will Hunting,” but he has always kept a healthy mix of mainstream and independent fare on his CV. However, the audience hasn’t always been […]

Kathleen Kennedy & Gareth Edwards Shoot Down Persistent ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Rumors

8 hours ago

The reverberations from Star Wars Celebration Europe earlier this month are still being felt, as Disney has managed what few studios are ever able to do: turn around bad buzz into genuine excitement. Undergoing heavy reshoots this summer, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” was perceived to be a potential disaster, an indication of Disney panicking […]

‘The Get Down’ Is Netflix’s Most-Expensive Show Ever, Cost Nearly $10 Million Per Episode

8 hours ago

The reputation that Netflix has cultivated is that they have money to spend, and fully support the creative vision of whoever they work with. But sometimes giving an auteur a blank check and hands off management can lead to what happened on the streaming service’s upcoming series “The Get Down” which, according to Variety, earned […]

‘Nerve’ Is A Gleefully Goofy, High Concept Social Media Thriller [Review]

8 hours ago

It would be a stretch to call “Nerve” a good film. The Ya adaptation, the latest film from directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (“Catfish,” “Paranormal Activity 3” and “4”) and based on Jeanne Ryan’s novel of the same name, is formulaic, lumpy and a little too implausible in its approach. But in the age […]

‘Shelley’ Is A Classy Take On The Often Trashy Pregnancy Horror Genre [Review]

26 July 2016 2:52 PM, PDT

There’s a nasty little genre horror swelling in the belly of Iranian director Ali Abbasi‘s “Shelley,” but the film is far more effective for largely being set before those elements come squealing into the world. Containing not one single jump scare, but building a disquieting atmosphere of dread that leads us to make some brilliantly […]

Jessica Chastain Joins Jake Gyllenhaal In Video Game Adaptation ‘The Division’

26 July 2016 2:33 PM, PDT

Of course, you can’t judge any movie until you see the whole thing, but I don’t think anyone would blame me if video game adaptations gave me pause. The genre is littered with mediocre efforts and blockbuster flops, but Hollywood is really trying to change it around, because they know if they get it right, […]

3-Minute Supercut Details Zack Snyder’s ‘Watchmen’ Adaptation From Comic To Screen

26 July 2016 2:15 PM, PDT

Like it or not, Zack Snyder has got a thing for comics and has made it his habit of bringing iconic properties to the screen. He’s essentially banked his career on them, with “300,” “Watchmen,” “Man Of Steel,” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” all coming from comic book origins (to be fair he’s […]
