New Mutants’ 10-Month Delay Doesn’t Mean the Movie Is Bad

There’s a lot to look forward to in 2018 in terms of superhero films, and one of them was Josh Boone’s The New Mutants, an X-Men spinoff which offers a brand new approach to 20th Century Fox’s X-franchise as five young mutants — Wolfsbane, Cannonball, Magik, Sunspot and Mirage — attempt to escape their captivity in a secret facility. The truly unique thing about this installment in the X-Men film franchise is that this is a horror film, a genre that is seldom explored in comic book films, especially ones based on superhero properties.

New Image Reveals Mirage is in Trouble in The New Mutants Movie

The New Mutants looks to be a pretty interesting movie. The director, Josh Boone, has decided to make a horror film inside the X-Men universe instead of a superhero movie. That being said, our five heroes will have a lot to deal with in this movie, but according to this image from USA Today, Blu Hunt’s Mirage is in trouble. We see the other characters around her and it looks like at least most are trying to help the seemingly unconscious Mirage not get caught by the horrors that are after them.

I’m excited to see the movie. Boone also told USA Today a bit more about the characters, saying:

.These kids could care less about being X-Men. They’re so (messed) up and have had such horrible things happen, they’re just trying to figure out how to get out of this situation. We just tried to

Best 25 Horror Oscar Winners, Ranked

Best 25 Horror Oscar Winners, Ranked
Most people think that snobby Oscar voters through the decades have turned their backs on the horror genre. Not so. True, far more horror flicks have been nominated for Oscars — including many Alfred Hitchcock movies — than have won. Hitch was nominated six times for Best Director and never took home a gold statue, which is why he was awarded an Honorary Oscar in 1968. “Thank you,” he said, and walked offstage.

We scoured the record books to find 25 Oscar-winning horror movies, and herewith rank them for you.

After heated arguments among the IndieWire staff, we threw out a dozen or so monster movies (“King Kong,” “Mighty Joe Young,” “Jurassic Park”), ghost films (“Ghost”) and scary psychological thrillers like Hitchcock’s “Spellbound” that just didn’t feel like horror flicks to us.

Defining a horror movie is subjective. Is it about gore and guts and supernatural beings, or how it makes you feel?

6 Great Hitchcockian Films Not Directed By Alfred Hitchcock

Steven Soderbergh’s recently released Side Effects brought this article to fruition. Although the film will probably be wiped out of everyone’s minds in a few months, you cannot help but feel the essence of one of the greatest directors of all time channeled through Soderbergh’s cinematic eye. The very first shot in Soderbergh’s film is a clearcut and obvious homage to Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, and countless other nods to the master of suspense can be spotted elsewhere by eagle-eyed fans.

One cannot deny that no matter the filmmaker, Hitchcock’s influence lives on and is as pivotal to film directors today as it was back in the day – even for those who do not specialize with thrillers. As you can probably notice by now, Alfred Hitchcock is one of those names that any film enthusiast should get tattooed across their chest someday. Okay, not really,

The Plot: A 16-year-old (Ronan) who was raised by her father to be the perfect assassin is dispatched on a mission across Europe, tracked by a ruthless intelligence agent and her operatives.

The Buzz: I’m moderately excited to see Your Highness, but Hanna wins ‘movie of the week’ here, as it looks to be a better film to see on the big screen. Director David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) looks to have another great comedy on his hands in Your Highness, but if I had to pick just one to see in the theater, Hanna would be it. The premise

Taxi Driver (35th Anniversary Edition) I could have sworn I requested a copy of this one, but it would seem I did not. Too bad, because I hear it is an excellent transfer, which tells me it's meaty and chewy with every texture of film you would want and expect from a high definition transfer of this classic. This is a film I didn't immediately like when I first saw it, but I discussed all this before when I reviewed the 2007 edition of this flick. I'm not sure if it's a film I necessarily need to own on Blu-ray, but at $12.99 at Amazon I am seriously considering buying this one right now and suggest if you are thinking the same thing you hit the Buy Now button before the price goes up.

Kevin McCarthy obituary

Elegant and charming supporting actor with more than 200 credits over a 70-year career

Kevin McCarthy, who has died aged 96, notched up more than 70 years as a working actor on stage and screen, with more than 200 film and TV credits. However mundane the material, it was usually enhanced by his lazy charm and natural elegance, his intriguing baritone voice and unconventional good looks – all attributes that might well have led him down the political path of his cousin, senator Eugene McCarthy. As it happened, he preferred to play politicians rather than be one.

He received his first screen credit in Laslo Benedek's version of Death of a Salesman (1951). McCarthy had previously played Biff, one of Willy Loman's disillusioned sons, in the London production of Arthur Miller's play, in 1949. By the time of the movie, he was a youthful-looking 37, with considerable stage experience. Resuming the role of Biff, he held
