‘Bad Times at the El Royale’ Review

Stars: Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Erivo, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, Chris Hemsworth, Cailee Spaeny, Lewis Pullman, Nick Offerman, Xavier Dolan, Shea Whigham, Mark O’Brien, Charles Halford, Jim O’Heir, Alvina August | Written and Directed by Drew Goddard

Drew Goddard finally returns to the director’s chair, after his highly inventive and successful directorial debut with the horror/comedy The Cabin in the Woods shot him to critical acclaim. A multitude of failed superhero projects followed and failed, as well as passing the directors chair on The Martian to Ridley Scott has finally put him on the right path of original treatments and the six-year wait has been worth it.

The Cabin in the Woods and Bad Times at the El Royale take a lot of clues and story beats from one another. The easiest and most obvious is that of the scenario and plot. A mystery is afoot and something is afoul.

Venom Knocks First Man Out of the Sky with Another Big Box Office Win

Venom Knocks First Man Out of the Sky with Another Big Box Office Win
Venom and A Star is Born easily took the number one and two spots at this weekend's box office, respectively. Tom Hardy's take on Eddie Brock fell over 55 percent from its debut weekend, but still managed to take in another $35.7 million. The film has earned over $378.1 million worldwide to date. Bradley Cooper's A Star is Born only fell a little over 34 percent from last weekend, earning $28 million, which was much more than Ryan Gosling's First Man.

First Man brought in $16.5 million at the box office this weekend, which was enough to land the number three spot. The film made a little over $8 million overseas, bringing the grand total to $25.1 million. The Neil Armstrong biopic has had a bit of controversy surrounding it over the fact that they do not show the astronaut planting the American flag on the moon, which could have been a factor for its low debut.

Venom,” which declined 56%, is the first repeat winner at the box office since “Crazy Rich Asians” won three straight weekends in August. Moveigoers have continued to shrug off negative reviews as the movie has taken in more than $142 million domestically at 4,250 locations in its first 10 days for Sony. It’s also continued the dominance of Marvel’s characters in the superhero movie realm.

‘Bad Times at the El Royale’ Director Hopes Chris Hemsworth Will Be in Every Movie He Makes

‘Bad Times at the El Royale’ Director Hopes Chris Hemsworth Will Be in Every Movie He Makes
Drew Goddard, who wrote and directed “Bad Times at the El Royale” for Fox, fulfilled one dream when Jeff Bridges agreed to take the role of Father Daniel Flynn, but it’s Chris Hemsworth, who plays charismatic and (of course) incredibly fit cult leader Billy Lee, with whom Goddard wants to work with for the rest of his life.

“[Chris Hemsworth] is such an extraordinary talent and an extraordinary person. He really is someone I could mix all the other actors around him he’s so conscious of everyone else, both cast and crew,” Goddard told TheWrap during a phone interview. “He’s just — he’s one of the radiant talents of our time… I hope he’s in everything I do for the rest of my life.”

This marks Goddard and Hemsworth’s second film together, the first being “The Cabin in the Woods” in 2012 — also the last time Goddard directed a feature film.

Arrow Nabs ‘Lords of Chaos’ for U.K., Black Metal Movie Set for Early 2019 U.S. Release (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Arrow Films has acquired U.K. rights to the black metal movie “Lords of Chaos” ahead of its British premiere at the London Film Festival next week. Gunpowder & Sky did the U.K. deal and has also now set a first-quarter 2019 U.S. release for the picture, which launched to acclaim at the Sundance Festival this year.

Jonas Åkerlund’s movie is centered on Norway’s brutal black metal scene in the 1990s and the band Mayhem. A sequence of events leads to church burnings, suicide and murder. Swedish film and music-video director Åkerlund helmed the film and wrote the screenplay. It is based on the book of the same name by Michael Moynihan and Didrik Søderlind.

The movie stars Rory Culkin, Emory Cohen, Jack Kilmer and Sky Ferreira, alongside Valter Skarsgård and Jon Øigarden. The film went down well at Sundance: “Hail Åkerlund!,” Variety said in its review. “The

‘Bad Times At The El Royale’ Review: Jeff Bridges & Chris Hemsworth Lead Cool Cast In Fun, Retro Film Noir Wannabe

‘Bad Times At The El Royale’ Review: Jeff Bridges & Chris Hemsworth Lead Cool Cast In Fun, Retro Film Noir Wannabe
The ads for the noirish new thriller Bad Times at the El Royale suggest that the plot revolves around seven strangers with a “secret to bury.” That certainly is truth in advertising as it seems to be exactly what writer-director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) has in mind in a pic that recalls movies like Bogart’s Key Largo and film noirs of the 1940s but most recently the Quentin Tarantino oeuvre of blood-soaked multi-character flicks that bring a visceral edge to a more traditional Hollywood genre.

As I say in my video review (click the link above to watch), Bad Times at the El Royale (a cool title that had me at hello), is overlong at two hours and 20 minutes and a little plodding at times with a structure that introduces us to several characters individually by interrupting the present to delve into their backstories.

“Bad Times At The El Royale” is overstuffed yet pulpy fun from Drew Goddard

No good film is too long and no bad film is too short. That’s an old saying that does ring true most of the time. That being said, occasionally there are exceptions to the rule. This week, there’s a movie opening that threatens to be that exception. Bad Times at the El Royale is a fun flick, but it’s also way too long. The good outweighs the bad, but with a shaved down running time, this could have been a total blast. Credit where it’s due for getting something unique like this made, so kudos to Drew Goddard, but as much of a fan of his previous work as I am, I couldn’t help wishing that this one had been trimmed down, at least a bit. The film is a mystery/thriller set at the run down El Royale hotel in Lake Tahoe. During one long night,

‘First Man’ Lifts Off This Weekend to Steep Box Office Competition
Venom” and “A Star Is Born,” both hot off of very strong openings at the box office last weekend, will now serve as tough competition for this week’s pair of big releases, Universal’s “First Man” and Fox’s “Bad Times at the El Royale.”

First Man” is the followup for director Damien Chazelle after winning the Oscar for Best Director for “La La Land” last year, with Ryan Gosling and several other Oscar winners from his “La La Land” team joining him. But while “La La Land” had a limited December release and a slow rollout through January, “First Man” will be released wide by Universal on 3,600 screens. The studio is projecting an opening weekend of $15-18 million, with independent trackers pushing their expectations up to $20 million.

At New York Comic Con on Saturday morning, Gaiman introduced the first look at the series with a trailer for the crowd at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden.

Much like “American Gods,” which looked at religious and cultural mythology as the battleground for a coming showdown, the new Amazon show “Good Omens” seems like it’s bringing a similar kind of fight to TV. Angels and demons trying to stop Earth from ripping itself apart. In the process, they’ll have to overcome Beelzebub itself, played here by Anna Maxwell Martin.

It was revealed during the Comic-Con panel that a portion of 3Below will overlap with Season 3 of Trollhunters. For example, the scene in Trollhunters that introduces Krel (Diego Luna ) and Aja (Tatiana Maslany) will be seen from their point of view as opposed to Jim, Claire and Toby's.

Speaking of the Trollhunters crew, they will certainly crossover into 3Below, some with their own new arcs. The announced voice cast from Trollhunters
