What Tiff’s 2017 Slate Tells Us About the 2018 Oscar Race

8 hours ago

The first wave of 2017 Toronto International Film Festival screenings were announced this morning and, as always, it was illuminating in many ways. Toronto still has its share of complete world premieres, but in many ways has become a catch up festival for potential awards players that have already debuted at Sundance, Cannes, Venice and the dreaded Telluride. And, it must be noted, while Tiff has focused on a slimmer and more “focused” slate this year there will still be a ton of other titles added in the weeks to come.

James Cameron Wants To Make New ‘Terminator’ Trilogy

11 hours ago

James Cameron, who is currently in the process of making four sequels to “Avatar,” certainly knows a thing or two about squeezing a movie property until there’s nothing left to give. The man behind the groundbreaking “The Terminator” and the iconic “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” (which is headed to theaters next month in an unnecessary 3D re-release) has watched over the years as the series he started has run itself into the ground.

‘Message From The King’ Trailer: Chadwick Boseman Wants Revenge

12 hours ago

A movie that didn’t really make much of a wave at Tiff last year, “Message From The King” (our review) is now destined to live in the corners of Netflix you probably don’t venture into very often. It’s a shame because Chadwick Boseman is apparently pretty good in the film, but perhaps his status as Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will help draw some eyes to the picture.

Re-Release Trailer For ‘Close Encounters Of The Third Kind’ Brings Back Steven Spielberg’s Visionary Film

13 hours ago

It was kind of crazy to see how opinion wheeled around on Steven Spielberg‘s “Ready Player One” this weekend. The first trailer made nerds all aglow at San Diego Comic Con, but now everyone seems to think the movie is indulging in the worst kind of nostalgia. Or something. That movie is still a long way off who knows what the whims of the internet will decide by then, but hopefully we can all agree that “Close Encounters Of The Third Kind” is a masterpiece.

Honest Trailer For ‘Ghost In The Shell’ Takes Apart The Misguided Anime Adaptation

13 hours ago

It was only a few months ago that the world received the live action adaptation of “Ghost In The Shell,” and frankly, many were ready to give it back. Unable to sidestep accusations of whitewashing the source material (which it turns out, it pretty much did), and fatally misunderstanding what made the anime so beloved, were what led to the film flopping. And Screen Junkies dives right into the whole mess in their latest Honest Trailer.

Kendrick Lamar, Katy Perry Lead Nominations As 2017 MTV Video Music Awards Adds ‘Artist Of The Year’

14 hours ago

MTV announced the nominees for the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards (aka VMAs) this morning and, as usual, the list of honorees was full of familiar names, videos mostly released over the past six months and head scratching snubs were everywhere.  More importantly, MTV has scraped the Best Female and Best Male Artist categories this year.  Instead, they have “combined” them into Artist of the Year. Whether that’s a better solution is clearly up for debate.

New ‘Thelma’ Trailer Unleashes The Supernatural Power Of Joachim Trier’s Latest Movie

14 hours ago

We’ve been eagerly anticipating “Reprise” and “Oslo August 31” director Joachim Trier‘s new film “Thelma,” but it seems festival programmers are less enthused, at least overseas. The film wasn’t at Cannes, doesn’t seem like its going to Venice, and will instead debut at the Norwegian International Film Festival in August, before crossing the pond to Tiff. Perhaps it’s too genre-y for prestigious fest types, but whatever the reason, it hasn’t lessened our excitement for the picture.

New ‘Le Redoubtable’ Trailer Provides Another Colorful Look At The Life Of Jean-Luc Godard

15 hours ago

It takes a certain amount of brass ones to make a movie about a still living, and active, cinema legend. However, “The Artist” director Michel Hazanavicius had no fears taking on Jean-Luc Godard in “Le Redoubtable.” The film premiered earlier this year to mixed notices at Cannes (we thought it was a harmless bit of fun), and now it’s making way to theaters where cinephiles will certainly be intrigued.

‘Brad’s Status’ Trailer: Ben Stiller Has A Breakdown

16 hours ago

To be honest, we kind of forgot “Brad’s Status” even existed. The new film from Mike White (“Enlightened,” “School of Rock,” “The Good Girl“) certainly has a great cast, but the entire endeavor feels a bit rote and familiar.

Starring Ben Stiller, Michael Sheen, Luke Wilson, Jemaine Clement, Jenna Fischer and Austin Abrams, the movie follows the titular Brad, who deals with a mid-life crisis as his son gears up to head to college.

First Look: Rachel Weisz & Rachel McAdams In Sebastián Lelio’s ‘Disobedience’

17 hours ago

Whatever is going on in the Chilean filmmaking community, we don’t want it to stop. Last year, we got treated to a double whammy of films from Pablo Larrain with “Neruda” and “Jackie.” Now, his colleague Sebastian Lelio is gearing up for a two-fer of his own. Earlier this year he unveiled the excellent “A Fantastic Woman,” and while that movie is headed to the Toronto International Film Festival to continue picking up accolades, the director will also be unveiling a new picture with “Disobedience.”

Starring Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams, and based on the book by Naomi Alderman, the film tells the story of a woman who must return to the London Orthodox Jewish community she fled years prior after the death of her father, who was the preeminent rabbi.

18 hours ago

Blade Runner 2049” is on the way, and judging by the recently released timeline exploring what has happened between the original film and sequel, a lot of thought has been put into it. However, the upcoming film from Denis Villeneuve is not the first time the idea of a followup to the 1982 sci-fi classic has been considered. In fact, not along after “Blade Runner” originally opened, concepts were being tossed around about a possible followup, and screenwriter Hampton Fancher has revealed one of the earliest ideas that was being toyed with.
