First Trailer for Danny Boyle's 'Yesterday' - If We All Forgot The Beatles

"You are the world's greatest singer/songwriter!" Universal has finally unveiled the first official trailer for the new movie directed by Danny Boyle, officially titled Yesterday - formerly known as All You Need Is Love. From writer Richard Curtis, the original concept for this movie is crazy - one day everyone wakes up and the entire world has never heard of The Beatles. Except for one guy. Who becomes famous for singing/playing all the classic Beatles songs, because no one knows that it isn't him who came up with all of this genius work. As wild as that seems, only Danny Boyle could pull that off and he seems to have done that. Himesh Patel (from "EastEnders" and "Damned") stars in Yesterday, along with Lily James, Kate McKinnon, Ed Sheeran, Ana de Armas, Joel Fry, and Camille Chen. This looks as amusing and enjoyable as I hoped, and I can't wait to see it.

Award-winning director Danny Boyle is teaming up with fellow award-winning writer Richard Curtis to create, if not an award-winning musical comedy, at least an entertaining one.

How 'Russian Doll' Subverts the Creepy Time Loop Trope

[This story contains mild spoilers for Netflix's Russian Doll.]

The concept of living the same day over and over again is one that Hollywood has embraced since the 1993 comedy classic Groundhog Day. Since then, it's become an established setup featured in everything from rom-coms like About Time and When We First Met to sci-fi movies like Edge of Tomorrow and The Infinite Man. One of the defining features of the strange subgenre is that the protagonists are often men — though that did change in Blumhouse's Happy Death Day — and use their predicament to improve their love lives and ...

TV Ratings Report: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Goes Low, Dynasty Returns Up

Dynasty returned to the air Friday night with a glitzy premiere that confirmed the fate of multiple characters. 

Dynasty Season 2 Episode 1 scored a 0.2 rating (0.7 million total viewers). These figures are right on par with Dynasty Season 1's average. 

Better yet, the 0.2 rating is up a tenth from May's season finale. This series, in particular, has a lucrative deal with Netflix that means The CW pays little to nothing for the show's production because it is being recouped by the deal. 

After Dynasty, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's final season got underway with a mere 0.1 rating (0.4 million) in the demo. 

This marks a series low for the critically acclaimed comedy series. It's probably a wise decision for the producers to have this season already crafted as the last. 

Over on NBC, Blindspot Season 4 kicked off with a 0.5 rating (3 million). As has been the case for most series, the drama dipped from both last season's premiere and average.

The Most Comforting Movies Ever Made — IndieWire Critics Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday.

This week’s question: The last few days have been extremely trying. And sometimes, when the world feels like it’s folding in on itself, people turn to the movies for a pick-me-up or some other kind of self-care.

To that end, we asked our panel of critics to select their favorite comfort film. Their choices run the gamut from Busby Berkeley musicals to “The Tree of Life.”

Mae Abdulbaki (@MaeAbdu), The Young Folks, Movies with Mae

When things seem at their worst or even when I’m having a bad month (or year), “13 Going on 30” is one of my go-to comfort films for many reasons. There’s the idea that no matter how bad things may seem and no matter the mistakes made, things can get better and sometimes

New York Film Festival Swings in Artier Direction

  • Variety
New York Film Festival Swings in Artier Direction
Since 1992, virtually all New York Film Festival opening night films have been North American or, since 2012, world premieres. But this year’s choice, “The Favourite,” crossed an unofficial line in the sand by getting a North American premiere at Telluride before opening the 56th Nyff on Sept. 28.

The only exception — 2009’s French comedy “Wild Grass” — played Toronto on the heels of the Great Recession, the collapse of indie-film financing and the shuttering of many specialty divisions. Similarly, Nyff’s new selection reflects a dearth of studio prestige fare, fest booking wars for the fewer films that remain, more power in the hands of distribs, an acquiescence to streaming services and an earlier Oscar season.

“We could have had a world premiere, easily,” says Nyff director Kent Jones. “But we didn’t like any of those films enough to invite them.”

So how did “The Favourite,” Fox Searchlight’s dark comedy about power moves,

Game Night Movie Review | Let’s Play

Well, I have to tell you that unless you are some kind of a die-hard snob, you will probably find Game Night (2018) far more entertaining than the average board game. Moreover, it is the perfect alternative if you want to persuade your friends to do something different on Saturday night. And if you happen to be a game buff, then this smart crime-thriller-comedy-mystery mash-up is right for you.

In a recent Q&A session on Reddit, the directors of Game Night (who by the way are huge fans of the board games) admitted that they make movies based on their own taste. In other words, they create films that they would love to watch themselves. They like to make the most fun out of this whole filmmaking thing. This is just one of the reasons Game Night turned out to be a huge success in the box-office.

Time Travel and Romantic Comedies: A Perfect Love Match?

Mark Harrison Feb 6, 2019

Christopher Reeve, Back To The Future, About Time, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time: join us as we examine time travel in romcoms...

Love is complicated enough without time travel. When time becomes a factor in a relationship, that relationship may be in trouble. In science fiction especially, time travel is a wrinkle that both brings lovers together and keeps them separate in some temporally devastating way.

Marty McFly almost breaks up his parents before they even get together. Kyle Reese falls in love with Sarah Connor when tasked with saving her life. Captain America misses out on a dance with Peggy Carter by getting frozen for 70 years. And, on TV, River Song and the Doctor experience their marriage in almost opposite directions.

Bechdel Test 2017 Breakdown: Which Blockbusters Passed, Failed, and What Needs to Happen Next

Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present, and future.

The Bechdel Test is not perfect — even the creator of said test, prolific author and cartoonist Alison Bechdel agrees, and when I spoke to her in 2014 on the occasion of her winning a MacArthur Genius Grant, she was open about the test and its limitations. “I’m not a stickler about the Test — if I were, I wouldn’t see many movies,” she said at the time. She even ticked off a handful of films she had recently enjoyed that didn’t pass her own metrics (“Jackie Brown,” “About Time,” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” for those interested).

There are only three requirements for passing the test, which aims to determine how active and present women are in a film: It must feature at least two women in speaking roles, who have names, and who talk

Domhnall Gleeson Hints That Star Wars: The Last Jedi Is Different And Unexpected

General Hux actor Domhnall Gleeson has revealed that the first time he read Rian Johnson’s script for The Last Jedi, he found that it was different to what he expected.

Now, this isn’t exactly the scoop of the century, and is in keeping with Star Wars actors’ notoriously tight lips when it comes to discussing what actually happens in these films. Still, it ties into the growing feeling that Rian Johnson’s take on the franchise is going to push it in exciting new directions.

The update comes from Gleeson’s recent interview with Collider, in which he managed to say quite a lot about The Last Jedi while simultaneously giving nothing whatsoever away. Perhaps as a reaction to those who criticized The Force Awakens for regurgitating A New Hope‘s plot beats, Gleeson says:

“When I read it I needed to talk to [Rian Johnson], and I think that’s always a good sign.
