‘The Aeronauts’ First Look: Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne Reunite 2,000 Feet in the Sky

Sony Cut Several Disturbing Scenes From ‘Slender Man’ Before Release

The delayed Slender Man movie finally hit theaters last week, and was met with mostly silence. The film wasn’t screened for critics, and didn’t scare up much box office. Before Slender Man arrived, rumor had it that Sony and the producers were clashing over the content of the fright flick. Now word comes that Sony snipped several […]

Wes Anderson’s Next Movie is Apparently a Musical Set in 1940s France

Following this year’s middling (and arguably problematic) Isle of Dogs, writer/director Wes Anderson is looking to ratchet up the whimsy for his newest project and tackle something he’s never done before: a full-fledged musical.

‘Next Gen’ Trailer: What If Netflix Remade ‘WALL-E’?

Take a dash of WALL-E, a smidgen of Big Hero Six, and a pinch of The Iron Giant, and you get Next Gen.

Finn bestseller of the same name, Woman in the Window already stars Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, and Gary Oldman. And with Anthony Mackie now on […]

‘The Angel’ Trailer: The Middle East’s Most Famous Real-Life Spy Gains His Wings

Ashraf Marwan‘s code name was “The Angel,” and his memoir dubbed him the “The Egyptian Spy Who Saved Israel” — both hugely impressive descriptors that would intimidate anybody. But seeing as Marwan’s actions helped prevent a deadly terrorist attack against Israel, they might just be perfect. Marwan gets the biopic treatment in a film helmed […]

Exploring ‘Blindspotting’ and Its Harrowing, Sobering Portrait of Privilege

When watching Blindspotting, it’s hard to tell that it is the first major film from co-writers/co-stars Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal and the feature directorial debut for director Carlos Lopez Estrada – because it’s just that good. It has rightly received tons of critical acclaim for its portrayal of Oakland, police relations, race relations and even gentrification.  And […]

Steven Spielberg’s ‘Hook’ 4K Blu-ray Release Will Feature 11 Never-Before-Seen Deleted Scenes

I realize it’s popular to crap on Hook, Steven Spielberg‘s 1991 movie that tells the story of what happens to Peter Pan when he becomes an adult. But even if Spielberg himself doesn’t look back on it fondly, the film still has its fair share of supporters – including yours truly – and they may […]
