Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

For every movie role, small or large, there are hundreds, if not thousands of actors vying for each part, but when it comes to Marvel's Thor franchise, it seems the studio almost cast one Hemsworth brother over the one who landed the role. Which means this November's Thor: Ragnarok almost looked a lot different. Chris Hemsworth, whose brothers Liam Hemsworth and Luke Hemsworth are also actors, revealed in an interview that, before he landed the role of the mighty Asgardian, his younger brother Liam Hemsworth was very, very close to winning the role, before Chris even got a callback.
Before Thor had come out, Chris Hemsworth was best known to American audiences as George Kirk, the father of James Tiberius Kirk in the 2009 blockbuster Star Trek, but Australian fans knew him from his role as Kim Hyde on the long-running Aussie soap opera Home & Away. Chris Hemsworth recently spoke with W Magazine, »

It's been almost five years since The Twilight Saga came to an end with Breaking Dawn - Part 2, and there have been plenty of rumors swirling about the franchise eventually returning to the big screen, but one star doesn't think it should happen. Kellan Lutz, who played Emmet Cullen in all five Twilight Saga movies, revealed in a recent interview that he doesn't think a reboot would make sense in this day and age. Here's what the actor had to say below.
"If Twilight was made in the 1980s or '90s, and then now we have all of the special effects, then yeah, cool, reboot it. But I don't really feel like... I mean, we had great special effects in that movie. Especially Breaking Dawn with Bill Condon. The movies look beautiful and they aren't these action-packed movies or these massive worlds like Marvel where you could reboot it »

It’s been five years since Drew Goddard’s directorial debut, The Cabin in the Woods, co-written with embattled geek idol Joss Whedon, opened in theaters to astronomical praise from critics, anchored by a deluge of reviews making the same claim: that the film was a game-changer, the kind of once-in-an-era piece of genre cinema capable of rewriting the rules of its classification. Maybe half a decade is too small a sample size for bearing out the truth of hyperbole, but lo and behold, the game remains mostly the same. We’re still making schlocky horror movies; we’re still setting a handful »

Joss Whedon‘s ex-wife, Kai Cole, has called the Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and Avengers director a “hypocrite preaching feminist ideals” who engaged in a series of infidelities throughout their marriage.
In a scathing guest blog post for The Wrap detailing her side of their 16-year marriage, Cole spoke against her ex’s reputation as a writer of strong female characters.
A spokesperson for Whedon told The Wrap in response, “While this account includes inaccuracies and misrepresentations which can be harmful to their family, Joss is not commenting, out of concern for his children and out of respect for his ex-wife. »

Alexandra, played by fierce actress Sigourney Weaver, is complex, so here's what you need to know about both the actress and her latest character. Warning: Light spoilers for The Defenders ahead! Weaver Has a Stellar Résumé In the '70s and '80s, Weaver starred in a handful of tiny movie franchises called Alien and Ghostbusters (ever heard of them?), so yeah, she's a total badass. She's also starred in a few other well-known '80s movies, like Working Girl and Gorillas in the Mist, both of which earned her an Oscar nomination (in the same year, no less).

One benefit of having a major movie franchise is that they tend to make a whole lot of money at the box office. Another benefit, at least recently, is that studios can then parlay that success into opening a theme park centered on these franchises. That is exactly what Lionsgate is about to do with some of their biggest titles as they are set to open a theme park in South Korea that will be based on movies like Saw, Twilight and The Hunger Games.
The new theme park will reportedly feature seven different "zones" based around different movies produced by Lionsgate. As reported by Entertainment Weekly, the park will be called Lionsgate Movie World and will be part of the massive Jeju Shinhwa World resort in South Korea. The movies that are set to be featured at the park include The Hunger Games, Twilight, Now You See Me, Divergent, »
Sony and Mrc’s long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King’s fantasy epic The Dark Tower may not have set the box office alight, although the film has recouped around half of its $60 million production budget, and with many international markets still to come, the Nikolaj Arcel-directed film could well go on to turn a profit. Whether that will be enough to see a sequel greenlighted remains to be seen, but if that is the case, then author King believes it has shake off the restrictions of a PG-13 rating and go down the R-rated route.
“I understand the rationale behind the movie that is PG-13,” said King in an interview with Bmd. “I was totally signed off on that. I want as many people in the tent as possible, for all kinds of reasons. Part of it has to do with the dynamic between the Gunslinger and the boy. »
