3 hours ago

Luca Guadagnino, Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet have nearly traveled the globe promoting their awards season hit “Call Me By Your Name” and there’s almost no end in sight. “We’ve been doing this since Sundance [Film Festival]….. in January!” Hammer laughed. It’s safe to say however that the time spent in promotion for this film is well warranted and necessary. A touching, relatable and sweet story of young first love “Call Me By Your Name” has taken audiences by storm.

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’: EW Covers, New Photos & Tempting Talk Of The Dark Side

5 hours ago

Director Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is less than a month away. And it’s been a pretty good year for Johnson. He’s the only “Star Wars” filmmaker that hasn’t been kicked off, fired or pushed off his film in the last 18 months. Not only that, Lucasfilm seems to love the guy and they’ve given him the keys to a new upcoming “Star Wars” trilogy that apparently won’t arrive until 2020 and will have nothing to do with the Skywalker saga.

7 hours ago

To take a page from not-dead Superman, it’s not a doomsday yet, but it is a bizarro world out there this weekend and studio suits are running around scrambling, probably worried about their jobs. Despite two creative shifts with five years, Zack Snyder and then Geoff Johns, something’s not working at the DC Comics Extended Universe and a reckoning is probably coming post “Justice League.

‘The Incredibles 2’ Trailer: Pixar’s Superhero Family Returns

18 November 2017 10:20 AM, PST

There’s quite a push and pull when it comes to the hesitant hopefulness regarding the sequel to the largely adored “The Incredibles.”

Both one of the best animated films and best superhero films of the 21st century, with a voice cast of immense talents who made these characters pop off the screen (Holly Hunter and Samuel L. Jackson being obvious standouts), the affection for the Pixar film has only grown with the passage of time.

Scarlett Johansson & Adam Driver To Star In Noah Baumbach’s Next Movie

17 November 2017 1:49 PM, PST

While cinephile purists might gripe about Netflix and their streaming ways, it can’t be denied that the streaming platform is giving financing to auteurs that traditional distributors can’t or won’t. Following “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” writer/director Noah Baumbach is going back to Netflix for his next project, and bringing along a helluva cast.

Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson, Laura Dern, Merritt Wever and Azhy Robinson will star in Baumbach’s new film, which is currently untitled, and about which no details have been revealed.

Exploring How Women Are Portrayed In Action Movies

17 November 2017 12:56 PM, PST

At their best, action films are money-making, high-octane entertainment, and we could spend all day breaking down the subgenres and making lists of our favorite movies. However, there is one element that is often overlooked but gaining more recognition.

In a video essay by Confessions of a Film Buff, they deconstruct and digest the roles female characters are given in action films, and the fact that much more can be done for better parts.

Former ‘Mad Men’ Producer Marti Noxon Calls Matthew Weiner An “Emotional Terrorist”

17 November 2017 12:40 PM, PST

Last week, Kater Gordon, an Emmy winning former writer on “Mad Men,” alleged that the show’s creator, Matthew Weiner,  “said she owed it to him to let him see her naked” while they were working together one night. Gordon was fired a year later, and she said the experience left her feeling “threatened and devalued.” Weiner denied the allegations, and touted the fact the series had “a predominantly female driven writers room.” However, now another voice has called out Weiner for the toxic work environment he created on the show.

37% Of Netflix Users Are Binge-Watching At Work

17 November 2017 12:09 PM, PST

As if the internet wasn’t enough of a distraction for workers, now bosses and It departments have something else to worry about: Netflix. The streaming service can pretty much be watched anywhere on any device at any time, and with the ability to be offline and still load up your favorite show, idling away the hours has never been easier. And it would appear that people are using time at the office to catch up on their peak TV viewing.

Robert Pattinson Reveals Original Buddy Comedy Idea For ‘Good Time’

17 November 2017 11:08 AM, PST

Good Time” is a film that probably flew under the radar of many movie fans. For those that didn’t get a chance to see the film, you missed out on what is probably actor Robert Pattinson’s greatest role yet. Yes, even better than the “Twilight” films. All joking aside, the movie is a grim and gritty look into the lives of two brothers, who get caught in a whirlwind of trouble when a bank robbery goes sideways.

17 November 2017 10:07 AM, PST

It was just last week that George Clooney was saying that, following some lucrative business deals, he could afford to be choosy about his work. “Look, I acted for a long time and, you know, I’m 56. I’m not the guy that gets the girl anymore,” he told The Sunday Times. “Well, yeah, I shouldn’t be the guy that gets the girl. But, look, if somebody’s got Paul Newman in ‘The Verdict,’ I’d jump.

‘Easy’ Season 2 Trailer: Same City, New Positions

17 November 2017 8:45 AM, PST

One of today’s foremost purveyors of “mumblecore” cinema – a derisive pigeonholing label for low budget indies which often involve the Duplass Brothers and sonorous dialogue – Joe Swanberg has managed to carve out a special niche for himself with his low-key hangout films, usually made in collaboration with “New Girl” actor Jake Johnson, such as the charming “Drinking Buddies” and “Digging for Fire.” Swanberg and Johnson scored their biggest mainstream success to date with this year’s Netflix original feature “Win It All” starring Johnson as a raffish gambling addict, and Swanberg is carrying on the momentum of his newfound recognition with a second season of his Netflix anthology series “Easy.”

Set in Swanberg’s beloved native Chicago, the first season of “Easy” adhered to a loose template following the sex lives of a disparate collection of couples and singles, with the episodes usually depicting a self-contained misadventure, such as »

Luca Guadagnino Wants To Make Five ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Movies

17 November 2017 7:55 AM, PST

Oliver and Elio might be the two characters you fall for hardest at the cinema this year. Played by Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet, they lead Luca Guadagnino‘s wonderfully warm romance “Call Me By Your Name.” The film has been riding a steady wave of buzz since it debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, and it’s well in the mix for Oscar consideration, but the filmmaker is far from done with these characters.

Rumor: DC Considering Pivot To Wonder Woman Universe Of Movies

17 November 2017 6:56 AM, PST

DC Films diehards don’t want to hear it, but the franchise is not in good shape. Since the Rotten Tomatoes score for “Justice League” was revealed yesterday, the Tomatometer tally has fallen from 43% to 37%. The box office will undoubtedly be big for the film this weekend, and maybe the international numbers will be strong as well, but the brand is damaged. DC is a far way not just from the consistent critical and commercial success of Marvel, but the goodwill that brand has amassed.
