Review: A Bad Moms Christmas (2017)

Christmas is upon us and with every approaching Christmas season, audiences can expect a seasonally themed comedy (or two) to crop up in November/December. This year, in addition to the Daddy’s Home 2 joy, we have a festive sequel to Jon Lucas and Scott Moore’s fine Comedy hit Bad Moms. Unfortunately it seems that A Bad Moms Christmas makes the fundamental error of not actually having many (or arguably any) jokes on show.

The concept is very by the books for festive family fracas fare and sees the three bad matriarchs from the last film – Amy (Mila Kunis), Carla (Kathryn Hahn) and Kiki (Kristen Bell) – prepare for the big show for mums (sorry, ‘moms’)…Christmas. But their job of taking all the stress of the holidays and styling it out will be made even worse this year, as their own mothers – Ruth (Christine Baranski), Sandy (Cheryl Hines) and

Fantastic Beasts 2 to feature even more Harry Potter surprises

While he was doing the rounds promoting Paddington 2 [read our review here], super-producer David Heyman (Gravity, I Am Legend) spoke to Digital Spy about the mission statement for the next Fantastic Beasts film and its subsequent sequels.

Heyman stated “I think the pleasure of these Fantastic Beasts films is that they’ll work on their own terms. You don’t need to know Harry Potter to enjoy them, but if you do, you have another layer, another level to enjoy. I’m very excited as more nuggets drop and audiences respond. Fans will be incredibly excited. This next film is different to the first, but each film will march to its own beat and have its own tone. I don’t yet know if the series will get darker, although all of them will be fun and entertaining.”

Does the formula need to change that much from the $800m grossing original, or are

Gerard Butler interview: Geostorm, Angel Has Fallen and more

Duncan Bowles Oct 23, 2017

Gerard Butler chats to us about Geostorm, his bike accident, and Olympus Has Fallen 3...

Geostorm is a film that is so bombastic, it feels like a crime to write its name in lowercase letters – Geostorm fits much better and conveys the gloriously over the top shenanigans that Gerard Butler finds himself at the centre of, as the planet Earth has set about imploding after no one paid any attention to climate change. Thankfully Butler’s character, Jake Lawson, has created a net of satellites in space that can prevent future weather based disasters, until it appears that someone might have set about turning ‘Dutch Boy’ (the control system) into a weapon…

Geostorm is a throwback to the golden era of nineties disaster movies in the best way; if you’ve ever loved the likes of Armageddon, Dante’s Peak or Twister (to name a few) then deciding

Box Office: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Dominates With $40 Million
Spy comedy “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is heading for a solid $40 million opening weekend at 4,003 North American sites, estimates showed Saturday.

The third weekend of horror blockbuster “It” continues to scare up impressive business with a projected $30 million at 4,007 locations, followed by the launch of Warner Bros.’ animated comedy “The Lego Ninjago Movie” with about $21 million at 4,047 locations — well under recent forecasts. Still, with three films over $20 million, the overall box office represents a continued rebound for the movie business following a dismal late summer.

Independent horror movie “Friend Request” is showing little traction in its launch weekend with an estimated $2.2 million at 2,550 venues. Jake Gyllenhaal’s “Stronger,” a biopic on Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, is opening with a moderate $1.6 million at 574 sites for Roadside Attractions.

Michael Giacchino interview: the art of scoring movies

Sean Wilson Sep 29, 2017

War For The Planet Of The Apes, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Star Wars and more, as we chat to composer Michael Giacchino...

Few blockbuster composers are in as much demand as Michael Giacchino. Having risen through the ranks of video game scoring and smash-hit TV sucesses with the likes of Lost, the versatile composer has over the last decade musically defined several enormous franchises. From Rogue One to Jurassic World to acclaimed Pixar Oscar-winners like Up, there's no end to Giacchino's talents.

With his 50th birthday concert at the Royal Albert Hall coming up on 20th October, we were delighted to catch up with Michael to ask that all-important question: what makes a truly great film score?

Well, it's been 15 years since I was playing Medal Of Honor: Frontline on the PS2 and now I'm sat here talking to its composer! Seriously, how hard were the tanks to defeat in that game?

Ed Skrein’s Bold Move to Opt Out of ‘Hellboy’ Over Whitewashing Concerns Ratchets Up Pressure

Ed Skrein’s Bold Move to Opt Out of ‘Hellboy’ Over Whitewashing Concerns Ratchets Up Pressure
Reversing Hollywood’s decades-long practice of casting white actors in Asian roles has proved vexing. Boycotts haven’t worked. Op-eds have drawn attention to the issue, and social media has magnified the scrutiny of the lack of diversity and inclusion on the big screen.

But last week’s stunning decision by British actor Ed Skrein to drop out of playing a Japanese-American character in the upcoming “Hellboy” reboot is likely to put pressure not only on casting directors but actors themselves, as well as film companies and studios.

Skrein, who declined an interview request, said in a statement that when he accepted the role, he was unaware that the character of Ben Daimio was of Asian heritage. He said the casting announcement caused “understandable upset” and “intense conversation” that prompted him to do what he felt was right. The response to his move has been largely positive, with many people on social media pledging to support other
