Next month will mark the return of New York City’s Quad Cinema, a theater reshaped and rebranded as a proper theater via the resources of Charles S. Cohen, head of the distribution outfit Cohen Media Group. While we got a few hints of the line-up during the initial announcement, they’ve now unveiled their first full repertory calendar, running from April 14th through May 4th, and it’s an embarassment of cinematic riches.
Including the previously revealed Lina Wertmüller retrospective, one inventive series that catches our eye is First Encounters, in which an artist will get to experience a film they’ve always wanted to see, but never have, and in which you’re invited to take part. The first match-ups in the series include Kenneth Lonergan‘s first viewing Edward Yang‘s Yi Yi, Noah Baumbach‘s first viewing of Withnail and I, John Turturro‘s first viewing of Pather Panchali, »

Noah Baumbach has never seen “Withnail and I.” Kenneth Lonergan has always wanted to see “Yi Yi.” Sandra Bernhard hasn’t had the chance to catch “Lola.” As part of New York City’s Quad Cinema’s newly announced “First Encounters” screening series, they (and more creative types) are going to finally remedy that — and they’d like you to join them.
The newly revamped four-screen theater — set to reopen in less than in a month — has announced the first lineup of their newest series, which sees notable New Yorkers (helped by programmers Christopher Wells and Gavin Smith) picking a film they’ve never seen (but have always wanted to) to show on the big screen, complete with a post-showing Q&A with the rest of audience.
Check out the first official lineup for First Encounters below, with descriptions and other information provided by Quad Cinema.

The last time we saw the Hulk, he was sitting in a Quinjet headed for parts unknown at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron. At the time, it was rumoured that the Jade Giant was going to wind up being blasted into outer space, but it appears as if Marvel Studios backtracked on that due to rights issues which made their plans for a solo outing for the character quite complicated. As a result, Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner now looks set to make his return in Thor: Ragnarok.
There, he’ll be the top gladiator in The Grandmaster’s arena on Sakaar, but that’s going to lead to him going head to head with Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder before the two embark on what Entertainment Weekly calls a cosmic road trip inspired by movies like 48 Hrs. and Withnail and I.

Who needs the rest of the Avengers when you have Thor and Hulk? That's the strong case being made in Thor: Ragnarok. The movie teams up this pair of mismatched heroes for what can only be described as a cosmic road trip. Sure, that is a term we've heard thrown around quite a bit. But what does it actually mean? Today, we finally have some answers.
This week's print edition of Entertainment Weekly has a full synopsis for Thor 3. And it finally explains the new haircut on Thor, those swords and all that Goth eye shadow we've seen in recent Ragnarok photos. The magazine released several new images yesterday, giving us a first look at Valkyrie, Hela and the Grandmaster. We also got to see Thor's new do and Dr. Bruce Banner. Not to mention the background in several scenes looked pulled from an 80s day-glow Sears ad. »
