Rachel Morrison's Boxing Drama Flint Strong Adds Brian Tyree Henry, Resumes Filming After A Two-Year Gap  

Two years ago, cinematographer Rachel Morrison began shooting her directorial debut, "Flint Strong" — a boxing drama starring Ryan Destiny, Olunike Adeliye, and Ice Cube — for Universal Pictures. Two days into principal photography, the pandemic forced the project to shut down. While Universal would eventually resume production on most of its greenlit films, they chose not to continue with "Flint Strong." The film appeared to be an unfortunate casualty of an unforeseen crisis, but producer...

McKenna Grace Announced The Release Of The Bad Seed Returns Has Been Delayed Following Uvalde Shooting  

Variety is reporting that Lifetime is pushing the release of "The Bad Seed Returns" in the wake of the horrific school shooting in Uvalde, TX that has claimed the lives of 19 children and 2 adults.  "The Bad Seed" originated as a novel that was then adapted as a stage play and subsequently a film in 1956 starring Patty McCormack as a precocious pig-tailed little girl who also happened to be a murderous sociopath. In 2018, Lifetime remade that movie with McKenna Grace as the title character ...

'A Lot Of Puke' Is The Price You Pay For A Spot In Top Gun: Maverick  

Much has changed in the movie business since the original "Top Gun" hit theaters in the summer of 1986. The special effects industry has taken gigantic leaps forward and, largely through the use of computer-generated visual effects, just about anything is possible. But when Tom Cruise decided to return for "Top Gun: Maverick" all these years later, he wasn't about to let the younger cast members get off easy. No, no, no. Instead, they were all put through the wringer and subjected to actual fli

Pairing Jason Statham With A Baby Was A Big Bet For The Fast 8 Crew  

The "Fast & Furious" movies pride themselves on their absurdity, and 2017's "The Fate of the Furious" is no different. It's a film where, among other things, Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto wins a race by driving a car backwards while it's on fire, the villain Cipher (Charlize Theron) hacks into the electronics systems of a fleet of cars and sends them raining down the side of a building, and the climax pits a bunch of vehicles against a nuclear submarine over a frozen body of water.

Forty-five years ago today, George Lucas' "Star Wars" (or, as it's now known, "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope") debuted in a smattering of theaters scattered throughout the United States. Prior to release, no one outside of Hollywood had any idea it would enrapture moviegoers and completely revolutionize the entire industry. Few people inside Hollywood thought this. But upon seeing an unfinished cut of the film over spring break in 1977, a brash fifteen-year-old from Wadsworth, Illinois n...

The console wars have deeply divided gamers for as long as I've been around, and I've been around a long, long time.

According to The New York Times (via ScreenRant), Butler has begun knife training for the role of Feyd-Rautha, a role which was played by Sting in the David Lynch film back in 1984.

The 2003 martial arts action film has its star Tony Jaa, playing the humble but deadly Muay Thai fighter Ting, going toe-to-toe with a series of towering, formidable opponents in an underground fight tournament.

The Bob's Burgers Movie Co-Director Explains How A Film Was The Next Logical Step For The Franchise [Exclusive]  

"Bob's Burgers" is the latest in a long line of fan-favorite animated shows to make the jump from our TV screens to cinemas around the world. "Beavis and Butthead," "South Park," and "Pokemon" are just a few of the notable series that made the transition from the family television set to multiple screens at your local multiplex. Although, these cartoons didn't just appear in a theater overnight. A number of factors had to come together in order for these releases to come together. As the team b

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One Trailer Breakdown: Echoes Of The Past  

Ethan Hunt is back, baby! And you know what that means? Movies are back. "Mission: Impossible" has, without question, been the greatest franchise since it began back in 1996. It is a series that is constantly reinventing and one-upping itself, and writer/director Christopher McQuarrie, who joined as a writer on "Ghost Protocol" and a director on "Rogue Nation," has elevated it to the point where every other franchise going looks paltry in comparison. The most recent film in the series, "Mission

Heroes Is Better Than You Remember  

It's 2006. You've seen the trailer. "Save the cheerleader, save the world." "Heroes" quickly became a massive pop culture phenomenon, posing the question, "What would superheroes be like if they really existed?" Let's not understate it: "Heroes" was a groundbreaking TV show released at a time that predated "Iron Man" and the MCU. Its grounded and realistic depiction of superpowers was revolutionary, and more in line with M. Night Shyamalan's "Unbreakable" than many of the superhero movies of i...

Matt Reeves Borrowed From A Western Master While Making War For The Planet Of The Apes  

There's a reason Matt Reeves' "War for the Planet of the Apes" is listed by critics alongside "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Logan" as one of the most significant big-budget franchise movies of the 2010s. Unlike 2014's "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," where he replaced "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" director Rupert Wyatt a year into pre-production, Reeves was involved with "War" from the very start. This allowed him to imbue the film with a mythic quality that is missing from "Dawn" (which is sti

"Star Trek" is one of science fiction's big historical landmarks.

When an animated TV sitcom makes the leap to the big screen, there are always certain expectations it has to fulfill. Will the fans love it? Will general audiences love it? Will it justify a two-hour runtime and bigger budget? Many movies answer these questions with flashy celebrity cameos or fancy technical gimmickry. But "The Bob's Burgers Movie" forgoes all of this in favor of sticking with the core recipe that made the animated show such a major hit. And sometimes, simpler is better. Create

Casualties Mount Up On A Disturbing New Episode Of Barry  

If you want my advice about the third season of "Barry" on HBO, it's very simple: watch the first two seasons of "Barry" first. There are three reasons. First, the show's first two seasons, like this one, each have eight episodes, all roughly 25-30 minutes, making for a fairly quick binge relative to some shows. Second, "Barry" is an excellent series and worth revisiting. And most importantly: some of the key events of the third season are predicated on aspects of the first two seasons that may

Dark City Filmmaker Alex Proyas Is 'Returning To His Roots' With Sister Darkness  

Alex Proyas has been MIA from the feature film scene since 2016's "Gods of Egypt," which fizzled at the box office despite its large scale and impressive cast, and that's not great. Proyas has turned in masterpieces and head-scratchers over the last 30 years, but one thing is always consistent with his work: he swings for the fences.
