New James Bond Movie Officially Announced For 2019

39 minutes ago

The timing for this bit of news is certainly….interesting. Today, the review embargo lifted on Steven Soderbergh‘s “Logan Lucky,” which finds Daniel Craig giving a comic performance unlike anything we’ve seen from the actor. It’s a big step away from the brooding visage we’re used to seeing from the actor in the James Bond films, but perhaps he’s gearing up to give it one more go.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Might Be The Longest Marvel Movie Yet

1 hour ago

It’s a weird time in movie culture, where running times are suddenly of vital importance (“Transformers: The Last Knight” is too long! “The Dark Tower” is too short!), and somehow an indication of quality. The length of a movie doesn’t matter, because it’s all about the story — as long as it’s captivating and well-formed, how much time it takes to unfold is a bit irrelevant. However, people have busy lives I suppose and want to know just how much time they need to carve out if they’re headed to the cinema.

Warner Bros. Spending $25 Million On ‘Justice League’ Reshoots

2 hours ago

Earlier this year, the DC Films world was rocked with the news that Zack Snyder was stepping away from “Justice League” for family reasons, with Joss Whedon taking over the film during post-production. Part of his duties would be filming what was described as additional photography, a standard part of any blockbuster process. However, it now looks like Warner Bros. is seriously trying to fix or substantially tweak the huge anchor in their DC Films Extended Universe.

‘Logan Lucky’ Is A Whip-Smart, Laugh-Out-Loud Funny Romp [Review]

3 hours ago

Since coming out of a brief retirement from filmmaking following the release of his Liberace biopic for HBO “Behind the Candelabra,” Steven Soderbergh has been awfully busy. Amongst his many projects, he shot, edited, and directed two entire seasons of Cinemax‘s overlooked medical drama “The Knick,” directed an off-Broadway play called “The Library,” edited and shot male stripper sequel “Magic Mike Xxl,” and released a series of weird fan edits of famous films, including “Heaven’s Gate” and “2001: A Space Odyssey,” plus “Psychos,” a mirrored mash-up of both Alfred Hitchcock‘s original film and Gus Van Sant‘s remake.

‘Blade Runner 2049’ Timeline Revealed, Includes Replicant Prohibition & Hunger Crisis

4 hours ago

Saturday’s “Blade Runner 2049” Comic-Con panel was, in appropriately futuristic fashion, introduced by Jared Leto in hologram form. The actor showed up to hype the sequel to Ridley Scott‘s classic, promising fans that Denis Villeneuve‘s new installment in the series wouldn’t disappoint.

Do we really need  Hologram Jared Leto’s assurance, though? (No offense, Hjl, in case you’re reading this.) With a string of assured, well received movies under his belt, including “Arrival,” “Prisoners,” “Sicario,” and my personal favorite, “Enemy,” Villeneuve has yet to miss the mark.

Christopher Nolan Talks The Problem With Tentpoles & Why He’s Not Ready To Direct TV

6 hours ago

No one is advocating for the power of the cinematic experience with as much enthusiasm and conviction as Christopher Nolan. The director’s commitment to analog film formats and seeing movies as they were intended, on the big screen, is nothing new. However, the man behind “Dunkirk” — the first non-franchise movie to top the box office since March — also has a few things to say about the current tentpole climate.

‘Twin Peaks’: “This Is The Place” [Episode 11]

6 hours ago

**If you’re afraid of spoilers, turn back now**

Can TV be riveting if very little is happening? It can in the capable hands of David Lynch, who gave us one of the best episodes of the “Twin Peaks” revival thus far, an hour that started with a surging rush of adrenaline and ended feeling as though we’d been given a welcome sedative, something calm and reassuring underscored with a somber tune from longtime Lynch composer Angelo Badalementi.

‘Game of Thrones’: Season 7, Episode 2 Is ‘Stormborn’ [Recap]

16 hours ago

Sometimes it seems that it’s only called “Game of Thrones” since “Family Matters” was already taken. Family problems. We all got ‘em, they’re just a whole lot worse in Westeros. Marauding pirate uncles, undermining sisters, long-lost nephews—it’s all just a stew of madness and warring bloodlines. That’s never more evident than in Season 7, Episode 2, “Stormborn,” written by Bryan Cogman, directed by Mark Mylod.
