At a certain point during Alice Through the Looking Glass, I thought to myself, “Wait, haven’t I seen this before?” And not in the cute “This movie is about time travel and we revisit scenes” kind of way. The movie got so monotonous, I literally felt like I’d seen a scene before in the same film.
Kevin Smith’s early work inspired a generation. Films like Clerks and Chasing Amy set the tone for the ‘90s independent scene and helped launched the careers of actors like Ben Affleck. In recent years, his films have gotten increasingly weirder, and it feels like it’s all been leading up to Yoga Hosers.
Alice Through the Looking Glass comes out May 27, and its final trailer echoes what we’ve been seeing from all its advertising thus far: visually, this thing will be lush, dazzling, and aggressively whimsical; plot-wise, it probably won’t make a lot of sense. Also, the narration makes us miss Alan Rickman so damn much.
In the Pirates of the Caribbean universe, Jack Sparrow’s father is played by Rolling Stones’ guitarist Keith Richards. That’s the only reason this next sentence isn’t completely and utterly insane: Sir Paul McCartney has joined the cast of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
For a number of reasons, the story of Alice in Wonderland has always had a strong connection to drugs. And yet, it’s weird to see it manifest so overtly in the latest look at the Disney sequel, Alice Through The Looking Glass.
Last month, Universal confirmed that it had cast Tom Cruise in 2017's The Mummy. And the studio’s monster madness continues with similarly massive star power, with the news that Johnny Depp has signed on to play the title role in The Invisible Man.
Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands, which came out 25 years ago this week, is more than just an updating of Frankenstein. It’s the story of a gentle robot who tries to live among regular people—and when I saw it as a little kid, this movie meant everything to me.
We are not anti-Johnny Depp. We love films like Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Donnie Brasco, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas—all of which are highlighted by stellar Depp performances. But for a Hollywood A-lister, he’s made some undeniably bizarre career decisions, and here are his oddest.
James “Whitey” Bulger became a kingpin because he was a ruthless killer—and because he masterfully exploited his side gig as an FBI informant. These are the two truths hammered home in Black Mass, which studies a singular criminal career and yet feels disappointingly generic.
Johnny Depp has played Dillinger and Donnie Brasco, and this fall he’ll take on another famous gangster, Whitey Bulger. The trailer for Black Mass suggests the action will take place during Bulger’s 1970s heyday, but his tale has a contemporary hook: he was captured just four years ago after 16 on the lam.
Just before the turn of the century Tim Burton and Johnny Depp worked together on Sleepy Hollow, a movie that played into both of their strengths. Like the current television show it takes many liberties with the original Washington Irving story. I recently rewatched it and to me it held up well.
What went wrong with Transcendence? This movie was supposed to be the new science-fiction hotness. An original storyline about artificial intelligence and brain-uploading, the directorial debut of Chris Nolan's cinematographer Wally Pfister, a great cast... and yet, it's getting widely panned. Why did the A.I.…
We're not sure about the vibe Transcendence is channeling. We've seen copious gun battles, wacky zombie armies and lots and lots of conspiracies, but now you can see actual footage from these seven Transcendence clips. What do you think?
Transcendence may seem like your typical "scientist creates artificial intelligence, scientist dies, scientist is loaded into AI device and goes rogue" movie. But this new featurette is showing a whole slew of insanity. Does Johnny Depp become a living god? Check it out.
Finally, a trailer for Transcendence that explains what this artificial intelligence thriller is all about. And apparently the machines are mad!
It's starting to look like 2014 is going to be the year of artificial intelligence movies. First Her, now Transcendence, look at what happens to humanity when AIs live among us.
We've been waiting forever to hear more about Transcendence, the new movie directed by Wally Pfister, best known as Christopher Nolan's cinematographer. Transcendence has been shrouded in mystery — until now. And holy hell, its official synopsis sounds ambitious.
Last month 10-year-old viral sensation Sophia Grace was tapped to play Little Red Riding Hood to Johnny Depp's Big Bad Wolf. But it looks like Disney has decided to go with someone older — two years older, to be precise: Lilla Crawford.
Johnny Depp has been officially cast in Disney's big-screen adaptation of Into the Woods as the Big Bad Wolf. That means he's going to be singing sexually charged songs opposite...a ten-year-old girl.
