‘The Good Place’ Writer on Food Puns, Ted Danson Singing, and Why This Week’s Episode Was the ‘900th Obvious Thing’

29 September 2017 5:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “The Good Place” Season 2, Episode 3, “Dance Dance Resolution.”]

When you’re a writer on “The Good Place” like Megan Amram, sometimes you have the chance to ponder the true nature of existence and humanity’s obligation to each other. There’s careful thought about the rules of this very specific, constantly shifting form of the afterlife.

Some days, you spend your time figuring out which numbers make people laugh.

“I’m sure this is like every comedy show, but there’s this feeling that certain numbers are just funnier than other ones, and I don’t mean because they’re like 420 or 69, numbers that are inherently funny. There’s just a feeling that 802 is a really funny number,” Amram explained in a recent interview with IndieWire. “I’m always like, ‘What is my job? I’m being paid to think about which number’s the funniest.’ So thank you, NBC.”

Stephen King explains what went wrong with The Dark Tower

26 September 2017 1:29 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Author Stephen King has explained why he feels The Dark Tower wasn’t a success.

The Dark Tower wasn’t a total disaster but it didn’t blow any doors off either, and it failed to excite audiences in the same way King’s book series had done in the past.

Putting out his own theories on why the film didn’t come together as well as it could have, King told Vulture during a recent interview that the movie’s age rating was a contributing factor.

“The major challenge was to do a film based on a series of books that’s really long, about 3,000 pages. The other part of it was the decision to do a PG-13 feature adaptation of books that are extremely violent and deal with violent behavior in a fairly graphic way. That was something that had to be overcome, although I’ve gotta say, »

NYC Weekend Watch: Samuel Fuller, ‘Goodbye to Language,’ Kelly Reichardt & More

14 September 2017 7:20 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

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.

Museum of the Moving Image

A series devoted to Sam Fuller’s war movies has started.

Liam Hemsworth Almost Stole Thor from Brother Chris Hemsworth

14 September 2017 5:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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, »

Twilight Star Kellan Lutz Thinks a Reboot Is a Bad Idea

11 September 2017 12:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »

Why Didn't 'Cabin in the Woods' Change the Horror Genre?

30 August 2017 3:27 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

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 »
