Zachary Levi Says He Would “Lose All Of The S—s” If Shazam Joined The Justice League

Oh, would you look at that adorable little DCEU! Still thinking that people care about their shared cinematic universe! How cute! All kidding aside, with “Shazam!” about to hit San Diego Comic-Con, people are still asking if the character will have a big impact on the shared universe and show up as a member of […]

Director David Gordon Green Says There Were 80 Drafts Of The ‘Halloween’ Reboot Script

If you’re familiar with the process of big Hollywood filmmaking, you probably understand that a film script goes through quite a few revisions before filming. Even during filming, lines are changes and scenes are altered. That’s just how it is. However, on the new “Halloween,” it appears that filmmaker David Gordon Green and co-writer Danny […]

‘Moonlight’s’ Ashton Sanders & ‘Westworld’s’ Jeffrey Wright To Star In Film From ‘Black Panther’ Writer

It feels like Netflix does nothing but make terrible movies. Not to throw shade at Netflix, but with the sheer number of films the company produces, it feels like, for every 10 so-so endeavors, there’s only one film worth noting. So, while the streaming company has a stigma of producing film duds, we can’t forget […]

‘Minding The Gap’ Trailer: Hulu Doc Shows How Skateboarding Has Saved The Lives Of Three Young Men

“I could seriously be on the verge of a mental breakdown, but as long as I’m able to go skate, I’m completely fine.” And with that quote, you know exactly what you’re getting in the new Hulu documentary “Minding the Gap.” When the 17-year-old Keire says that at the end of the first trailer, he […]

‘Equalizer 2’: Denzel Washington Rights Wrongs Again In The Brutalizing Vigilante Film [Review]

The first “The Equalizer” was the kind of film that either didn’t know or didn’t care that the tough guy walking away from the explosion while never looking back was a long played out, often satirized cliché (spoofed by the Lonely Island song “Cool Guys Don’t Look At Explosions”). Very possibly the former. And that […]

‘Silicon Valley’ Actress Calls T.J. Miller A “Bully” And Says Male Cast Can “F— Off Forever” For Being Complicit

It’s not a well-kept secret that actor-comedian T.J. Miller is a bit of an asshole. That isn’t to say he’s not a talented actor or comedian (his IMDB credits would suggest that he’s very popular and doesn’t have trouble finding work), but by all accounts, on set, he can be a pain in the ass. […]

Alfonso Cuaron’s ‘ROMA’ Will Be NYFF Centerpiece But Not It’s World Premiere

One of the most anticipated movies of the year is Alfonso Cuarón’s “ROMA” which Netflix will debut on its streaming service and in theaters later this year.  The semi-autobiographical work was supposed to debut at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival in competition, but was pulled after a dispute between Netflix and the powers that be at […]

Spider-Verse Producer Says “Kids Love Venom” When Describing Appeal Of R-Rated, Violent Superhero Film

Let’s go back to 1998 for a minute. During that year’s Grammy Awards, rapper Ol’ Dirty Bastard (aka ODB) went on stage and said the infamous words “Wu-Tang is for the children.” The impromptu speech is one of the most quoted Grammy moments in history because of its absurdity. If you’ve listened to any Wu-Tang […]

Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’ To Receive 10th Anniversary IMAX 70mm Release

There are only a handful of filmmakers working today that make films that are worthy of being shown on 70mm. Leading the way, in most people’s minds, would be Christopher Nolan. The director is known for his incredibly beautiful films. And to celebrate the 10th anniversary of one of his best works, Nolan is finally […]
