Should Marvel Just Release Its 'Avengers: Infinity War' Trailer?

3 hours ago

A lengthy trailer/sizzle real for Avengers: Infinity War has been Marvel Studios' crown jewel as it has made the convention rounds the past few weeks.

The footage closed out a blockbuster D23 panel July 15, with it getting shown again at San Diego Comic-Con Saturday. Soon afterward, a terribly shot, pirated version from Hall H began showing up online.

Marvel typically does not release much of its Comic-Con footage online officially, but a few years ago, the studio released its Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer a little early after a pirated version leaked. That raises the question: Instead of »

'Logan Lucky': Film Review

4 hours ago

Logan Lucky is a redneck Ocean's Eleven. For his first feature film in four years, Steven Soderbergh has snuck back in on a back road with a goofy and steadily amusing tale of born losers in West Virginia who try to hit the jackpot by divesting an auto raceway of a few million bills. This loose and shambling tale with a very attractive cast is highlighted by a wonderfully wacky, show-stealing turn by Daniel Craig as a down-home career criminal.

There is definitely an audience for this likeable but no-big-deal film and probably even two »

'Girls Trip' Box Office Breaks R-Rated Comedy Curse, Proves Power of Diversity

7 hours ago

For decades, Hollywood studios have operated on the premise that a film featuring a black cast wouldn't necessarily reach and play to a wider audience.

But now, moviegoers are taking matters into their own hands, challenging that assumption and proving Hollywood wrong. The latest example came over the weekend as Universal's critical darling Girls Trip opened to a rousing $30.4 million — the best start for an R-rated comedy in two years and the best showing for any live-action comedy so far this year. The movie achieved those distinctions because it appealed to an array of audiences: African Americans »

Why Any Movie About Trump Should Make Us Love the Man, Not Hate Him

7 hours ago

In the mid-1970s, William Goldman took on what seemed like an insurmountable challenge: how to turn the richly detailed manuscript of All the President’s Men, which Robert Redford had just optioned from Watergate reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, into a movie.

The celebrated screenwriter had faced other such challenges: transforming the meandering story of two turn-of-the-century bandits into 1969’s Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid; figuring out how to terrify us with a Nazi fugitive on the loose in contemporary Manhattan, in 1974’s Marathon Man. (Will a dental visit ever be the same again?) In each case, he succeeded, winning an Oscar »
