Justice League Trailer Showcases the Brave and the Bold Mar25

Justice League Trailer Showcases the Brave and the...

Here’s our first trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League! And here’s the first official poster:   By all the New Gods and the Old, that is a fantastic trailer! The thing I’m most pleased to see is that it’s still so clearly a Zack Snyder movie, and that all mind-numbing, click-bait driven criticisms of BvS and the DCEU did not affect the filmmaker-driven style of the film. It manages to convey a lighter tone promised to us even before BvS‘s release not by simply bright colors and quips, but through a sense of optimism and pure glee of seeing these heroes brought together (that Beatles cover goes a...

When I imagined taking my daughter to her first movie, I pictured excitement, maybe some fanfare, and a carefully selected film. She would be full of anticipation, and my heart would be warm at the thought of making her happy. I don’t know why I imagined this, as I don’t remember my own first...

Throughout the month of March, Audiences Everywhere will be sharing appreciation for film trilogies, including personal reflections from our writers on some of their favorites. Today, we’re discussing the thematic link between three of John Carpenter’s masterworks. There’s a great big hole in the world. At its center resides the agent of our undoing. So we bury it. We build foundations over it, foundations built on the unknowable things we think we know. And while that agent of undoing may be covered, that hole is not filled. Relationships, religion, and entertainment form a holy trinity of forgetting, of distraction . . . that is...

Greetings, everyone. We’re heavy on horror this week of Weekly Clickables, but we also would like to draw your attention to a discussion of Dave Chapelle’s return and a string of tweets highlighting the limited (and offensive) roles available to actors of color. First, check out this string of tweets from Kal Penn about the roles he auditioned for as a young actor, which are collectively enlightening, depressing, and funny. Thrillist put together a list of movies to watch after you see (and love) Get Out. Read this Vulture interview with Karyn Kusama about the importance of genre film.

10 Actors Who Should Play Lisbeth Salander Mar16

10 Actors Who Should Play Lisbeth Salander

With the news that Alicia Vikander has turned down the role of Lisbeth Salander in Fede Alvarez’s upcoming Girl in the Spider’s Web, we decided to put forth some casting ideas of our own, in no particular order. Some seem like easy replacements, and others more of a challenge, but now is a good a time as any to completely refresh the continuation of the wildly successful Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series. Elizabeth Olsen Elizabeth Olsen is just one example of a talented actor who has been captured by the superhero universe with little time or energy to expend on chasing more “obscure” goals. Unfortunately Olsen is also heavily undervalued...

Humanity and Iconicity in the Captain America Tril...

Throughout the month of March, Audiences Everywhere will be sharing appreciation for film trilogies, including personal reflections from our writers on some of their favorites. Today, we’re discussing the recent Captain America trilogy. Iconicity is the relationship of similarity between the two sides of a symbol—its form and its meaning. The closer the form and meaning are to one another, the more memorable the symbol is likely to be. An iconic symbol is one whose form resembles its meaning in some way; the opposite of this iconicity is arbitrariness. The red and white stripes, star, and ‘A’ of Captain America’s costume...

Criterion Discovery: Fat Girl

Background: Catherine Breillat’s 2001 outing, Fat Girl, followed her controversial explorations of sexuality in Perfect Love! and 36 Fillette with aplomb. Whereas these earlier films seemingly fetishized male power over women, Fat Girl explores the fragility of women in a patriarchal society. In this sense, the women of the film are given a voice that evokes empathy and a brutal sadness. This is Breillat’s only film in the Criterion slate, spine #259. Story: Fat Girl juxtaposes the life of two adolescent sisters, the overweight 12-year-old Anaïs and the socially approved, 15-year-old beauty Elena. The sisters share a deep sibling love for...

Roman Polanski’s Apartment Trilogy & Th...

Throughout the month of March, Audiences Everywhere will be sharing appreciation for film trilogies, including personal reflections from our writers on some of their favorites. Today, we’re discussing Roman Polanski’s Apartment Trilogy. As a raw medium for displaying our psyches, horror is pushed by trends that first pull from the sociopolitical climate of their inception and ride that wave until it’s no longer lucrative or immediately applicable. Because of this, horror subgenres have always enjoyed a natural ebb and flow. “Apartment horror” was a powerful–and then overused–subgenre of the ’60s and ’70s in such films as...

Weekly Clickables: Music from Game of Thrones ...

In this week’s Weekly Clickables, we have women in westerns, appreciation for 35mm film, and a hint at the ending of Logan. First, artist Felice House painted women posing as famous cowboys, and the result is a pretty cool collection of portraits. Next, Screen Rant looks at how Logan’s ending was teased in The Wolverine. Last week was the 20th anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. On ET Online, Joe Bergren explored its legacy. Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League argues in favor of 35mm film (and gives an interesting history of film media in the process). Finally, an interview with Ramin Djawadi—better known as the composer...

Edgar Wright Returns With Baby Driver Trailer Mar12

Edgar Wright Returns With Baby Driver Trailer

The wait is over! We’ve finally been rewarded with the first trailer for Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver, which premieres at SXSW this week. Edgar Wright does not disappoint! Baby Driver looks cool as hell and pretty much guarenteed to make everyone change-up their favorite movies lists by the end of the year. While the plot has been compared to Refn’s Drive, that doesn’t really matter considering what a strong an unique voice Wright has. We’re surely in for plenty of surprises, as nothing Wright has ever done has just been a straightforward take on familar topes. On that front, it was a great move not to give away...

I am proud to present the NEW trailer for #WonderWoman! ✨ pic.twitter.com/7q7SQ80ut1 — Gal Gadot (@GalGadot) March 12, 2017 And in HD: I’m in love! The great thing about this latest trailer for Wonder Woman is that it doesn’t feel like it’s giving too much of the plot or action sequences away. There’s enough new footage here to continue to build our anticipation while still feeling like it’s holding the best stuff, including the film’s central...

Charlize Theron Kicks Ass in Red Band Atomic Blonde Trailer Mar10

Charlize Theron Kicks Ass in Red Band Atomic Blond...

Charlize Theron has been making quite the name for herself as an action star. Her streak continues with the spy thriller Atomic Blonde, based on the 2012 graphic novel by Anthony Johnston, and directed by John Wick and the upcoming Deadpool 2‘s David Leitch. This looks slick as hell, and may end up being one of the year’s surprise hits, especially if people latch onto it the way they took to John Wick.  Not only is it great to see another badass female action hero, but Theron’s character also appears to be bisexual which is an awesome move for representation and a unique angle we rarely see explored in genre films. As if...

Netflix Hidden Gem #100: Look Who’s Back

Look Who’s Back (2015) Director: David Wnendt Genre: Comedy Constantin Film Synopsis: Adolf Hitler wakes up in modern Germany and becomes a media sensation. Overview: Look Who’s Back is structured like Borat or Bruno — a mix of scripted scenes and those of the main character interacting with the public. The entertainment, of course, comes from the public’s reaction to the eccentric figure at the centre of the movie. However, unlike those films and their heightened stereotype main characters, the protagonist of Look Who’s Back is Adolf Hitler. Waking up in a park in 2014 Berlin, Hitler finds himself transported...

Its All About Family in New The Fate of the Furious Trailer Mar09

Its All About Family in New The Fate of the Furiou...

Universal unveiled a new trailer for F. Gary Gray’s The Fate of the Furious. Well this franchise certainly isn’t backing away from its absurdity or its overuse of the word family. Story-wise, there looks to be some interesting developments (retconning Charlize Theron’s character into the narrative for one), and writer Chris Morgan has developed the relationships between these characters in a way that we’ve grown to care about them, and their ridiculous personas. On the directing side, this is F. Gary Gray’s first blockbuster and the film’s visuals look to be a step away from the goregeous global scenery...

Back to the Future: Movie Making and Mythologising Mar09

Back to the Future: Movie Making and Mythologising

Throughout the month of March, Audiences Everywhere will be sharing appreciation for film trilogies, including personal reflections from our writers on some of their favorites. Today, we’re discussing Back to the Future. Back to the Future – Movie Making and Mythologising The Back to the Future trilogy is about a lot of things: fate, destiny, love, bravery, toxic masculinity, rock and roll, the past, present, and future. It is heavy on both action and comedy and features some great sci-fi and romance, too. And today it almost feels like a relic of a time when a summer blockbuster could just be unashamedly fun. The trilogy is...

Bette vs. Joan: What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? Mar09

Bette vs. Joan: What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. Both names bring to mind the soft black-and-white era of the ‘30s, glamour, fame, and romance. Two women who were stubborn and inspired and incredibly gifted. Two icons that are almost always mentioned in the same breath due to their tumultuous enmity. Legend has it that their epic feud began over a man, Franchot Tone. Tone played Bette’s lead opposite in Dangerous, the first film for which she received an Oscar. Both she and Joan are rumoured to have loved him, but when Joan nailed him down in marriage, it was at a time when Bette’s career was waning and Joan’s beginning to wax. As if heartbreak wasn’t...

T2 Trainspotting: A Nostalgic Movie about Nostalgi...

For good or ill, nostalgia has taken over cinema. We have reached a point with cinema and TV where anything has the possibility of returning. Gone are the days of a show being canceled with no hope of coming back, and here to stay is the age of not letting go. A few years ago, Arrested Development, a show long since assumed  gone forever, returned to our screens. In just a few months we will have more Twin Peaks, when just a few years ago, the chances would have seemed slim at best. By December we’ll have had the third new Star Wars movie in as many years as well as a new Star Trek series, a Charmed reboot, a Baywatch movie, a CHiPs movie,...

Throughout the month of March, Audiences Everywhere will be sharing appreciation for film trilogies, including personal reflections from our writers on some of their favorites. This week, we’re starting with The Cornetto Trilogy. “Be (Reluctantly) the Change You Wish to See in the World: A Cornetto Trilogy Appreciation” Shortly before the release of Rogue One, amid all the media hoopla and internet chatter, something compelled my older sister to call me. Not a rare occurrence, but not a regular one either. She was calling, she explained, because she wanted me to know that I’d been there for the original, in ‘77. I hadn’t...

Logan Director James Mangold is Taking Fansites to...

Sometimes, a movie grows to be about something else after it is released. Culture shifts, perspective moves, the audience grows to learn the intent of the artist more with future work, or hindsight vision reveals a new narrative or unseen or maybe even somehow added details. As showcased by Birth of a Nation to Wet Hot American Summer, this discovered value can make a film better or worse. Movies grow. They evolve. Usually this evolution, like any other, takes time. But this weekend, we saw one mutate. James Mangold’s Logan is straight killing it right now, by all logical measures. Currently, the film, Hugh Jackman’s farewell to the...

In this week’s Weekly Clickables, we have no theme, but instead a mix of essays and interviews you can really spend some time on, covering a breadth of subjects. First, Brent Lang at Variety discusses why we’re ready for an R-rated X-Men movie. Back in May, Angelica Jade Bastien at RogerEbert.com wrote about the legacy of Joan Crawford, which is pertinent to the upcoming FX show Feud about the famous feud between Bette Davis and Ms. Crawford. Film School Rejects explain how a minor character from Taxi Driver inspired the iconic adrenaline-shot scene in Pulp Fiction. At MTV.com, Inkoo Kang explores the surprising popularity and...

Deadpool 2 Teaser Riffs On Superman Mar04

Deadpool 2 Teaser Riffs On Superman

The weekend’s worst kept secret has now made its way offical online. Here’s the teaser for Deadpool 2 that plays before Logan. Audiences lost their minds when this teaser (really a short film, since the sequel doesn’t have a release date yet) played during my screening of Logan on Thursday. It’s definitely smirk worthy, and the True Romance score that plays across the end is a nice touch, but based on the reaction it got in my screening, it might has well been a gift of manna dropped down from the heavens upon starving massess. Fox’s calvacade of merry mutants certainly won’t be hurting over Wolverine...

YO HO Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Trailer Mar02

YO HO Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No T...

Here’s our first full look at the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie! While a fifth installment may beg the question of who is asking for more of these movies, the billion plus dollars the last installment took in has assured Disney that there’s an audience. We wouldn’t be surprised if this latest entry brings in similar box office numbers, given the property’s global appeal. Personally speaking, the first three films are really strong and remain a nice reminder of the ingenuity of blockbuster films when studios reach beyond comic book properties. Dead Men Tell No Tales could be a return to form after the...

The Humanity We Lost With Bill Paxton Mar02

The Humanity We Lost With Bill Paxton

After his passing on February 25, 2017, it quickly became clear, perhaps a little too late, that Bill Paxton will be talked about about as one of the great human actors. A man filled to the brim with realness, who looked natural in any part and yet never quite looked like a movie star. Instead, Paxton often looked like some dude from down the street having the time of his life, who just happened to be on a movie set while they were shooting. At other times, Paxton infused characters with a level of dignity and humanity they probably didn’t deserve and wouldn’t have received if played by another actor. Many times, the characters...

“This is the Zodiac Speaking”: Fincher’s Fil...

The story of what came to be known as the Zodiac murders began on December 20, 1968, though no one knew at the time how significant that particular shooting was to become. There’s no agreed upon date when the murders ended because the Zodiac—a moniker the killer gave himself—has never been identified. His shadow stretches until it just reaches into 1970, though attacks beyond 1969 have never been substantiated. For a period of just a bit more than a year, the Bay Area was paralyzed by the randomness and viciousness of these crimes. And that viral fear was spreading. Down in Los Angeles, the Tate and LaBianca murders committed by the Manson...

Mindhunter Trailer: Fincher Gives True Crime Fans ...

It looks like director David Fincher will be revisiting familiar ground in the just-released trailer for his upcoming Netflix series, Mindhunter—and with Fincher, that’s rarely a bad thing. He’s tackled serial killers before and if he manages to do on the small screen what he accomplished in Seven and Zodiac, expect this much-hyped series to be among the fall’s most-talked about premieres. The series is based on the book, Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, by John Douglas, a former special agent, who worked on some of the most high-profile cases of recent decades, including those of David Berkowitz (“Son of Sam”), Dennis...

AE Monthly Book Club: Gerald’s Game

March is said to be a lucky month, but when it comes to fiction we find that a bit of bad luck is more compelling. And for this month’s book, the bad luck comes in spades. This time around, bad luck is nothing more than an escalation of outright terror. For March’s book, we’ve chosen Stephen King’s Gerald’s Game. A film adaptation directed by modern horror maestro Mike Flanagan is set to be released on Netflix later this year, so we thought we’d find out what we’re in store for ahead of time. The publisher’s description reads: Once again, Jessie Burlingame has been talked into submitting to...

Feel the Beat in New Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Trailer Feb28

Feel the Beat in New Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. ...

Courtest of Jimmy Kimmel Live, here’s a new trailer of one of the summer’s most antcipated movies: Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2! Move on over Fast and Furious franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy has their own ex-wrestler to deliver lines about family, and their own mysterious Kurt Russell character as well. We’re really running out of great things to say about awesome this movie looks, and at this point we just want all those spectacular visuals, charming banter, and rockin’ 70s track sspalshed across the big-screen and blaring out of surround-sound speakers. Given the reception of the first film, which hasn’t...

Discover the Dark Side of Paradise in New Alien: C...

Here’s the second trailer for Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant! Ridley Scott has said that he’s going back to full on horror with Alien: Covenant and this eerie new trailer has us fully convinced. As some of the new creatures in the trailer would suggest, Ridley Scott seems to have plenty of surprises up his sleeve and will continue to push the mythology of Xenomorphs forward, just as he did in Prometheus. The fact that Scott, at 79, can release big-buget R-rated movies that aren’t based on comic books, and still have creative freedom, is something to celebrate. We’re ready for whatever he has in store for us....

Imperfect Animal: The Enduring Appeal of Wolverine

There is a wilderness of the soul, a place of undying conflict that’s marked by signposts of pain and suffering. A place kept wild by questions, chief among them the oldest question we know: Who am I? The answer, sometimes brief, other times sprawling, alternates between being a fountain of hope or of despair, but made concrete in moments defined by our will to survive and emerge stronger, better even. Perhaps more than any comic-book character, James Howlett, Logan, Weapon X, The Wolverine, best exemplifies the ever shifting nature of human identity, through his own post-human struggle that has remained one of comic books most enduring...

The movie looks visually spectacular, and seems to possess a sense of humor that’s unexpected but could be quite refreshing. This could end up being one of the year’s surprise hits. Plus, I’m hearing that we’d do well to sit...

Get Out: I Am The White Monster Feb27

Get Out: I Am The White Monster

It matters that Dean Armitage (Bradley Whitford) tells Chris Washington (Daniel Kaluuya) that he would have voted for Obama for a third term. Yeah, it’s also a funny bit of dialogue, throwing back to an earlier scene in which Rose (Allison Williams), Dean’s daughter and Chris’s girlfriend, warned Chris that he would end up having this conversation with her totally-not-racist father. Obviously, it’s an awkward exchange. That’s where the joke comes from. But Jordan Peele, the former MADtv and Key & Peele writer and star making his directorial debut with Get Out, has crafted a film of easy superficial delight but one that also...

Weekly Clickables: Oscars Hangover

Happy Monday, everyone. I hope you all enjoyed the Oscars last night. This week, we have a look at racism, Oscar hosts and moments, and the work of the late Bill Paxton in our Weekly Clickables. Hopefully it will help you through your post-Oscars gloom. First, Anthony Lane of The New Yorker discusses Get Out and Logan.
