Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller probably didn’t realize the avalanche of discussion he set off when he first mentioned a black-and-white version of his award-winning film. We’ve chronicled the mystery behind this version of the film in the past, but now it seems like it’s actually happening.
After Coraline, Paranorman and The Boxtrolls it would be easy to simply call Laika a stop motion animation studio. They are definitely that. But with each movie, culminating with August’s Kubo and the Two Strings, the company continues to change what stop motion can be.
The funniest comment I read about Batman v Superman was when someone said they loved the scene in the movie when Wonder Woman sat down and watched the trailer for Justice League. Thanks to that scene—and a new behind-the-scenes featurette—we finally have a closer look at Aquaman and Cyborg.
Walt Disney Animation Studios is going back to the world of video games in 2018. It took to Facebook Live Thursday to announced that an internet-centric sequel to Wreck-It Ralph is in production and will be released March 9, 2018.
The BFG is Steven Spielberg’s first Disney movie and it’s based on a famous book by Roald Dahl, one of the world’s most notable authors. Those things all add up to some pretty daunting expectations. The film, which opens Friday, meets those expectations, but doesn’t surpass them, leaving a suitably entertaining and…
The next season of Game of Thrones already has its directors. The Ghostbusters have an arsenal of new weapons. Star Trek’s new alien ally gets her Riker on. Plus... more! Let the spoilers into your heart.
You can’t really blame Samuel L. Jackson for believing strongly that his Star Wars character didn’t really die. He didn’t go out in the most dignified manner.
More than almost anything in the world, we want the 2018 Han Solo movie to be great. On paper, it’s a terrifying idea to solidify a backstory for such an iconic character, but at least one person assures us the script is amazing (although he probably has to say so).
Sporting a Jansport backpack and full Spider-Man suit, the webslinger is riding the back of a truck in a brand new series of photos from the set of Spider-Man Homecoming.
Here’s an interesting portrait of Howard Berger, a special makeup effects artist who’s worked on films like The Chronicles of Narnia and Inglorious Basterds, and the work he does to transform actors into, well, monsters. You get to see everything: adding clay to an actor’s lifecast to build the form, the molding…
Before it was the billion dollar hit it ended up being, Zootopia was a very different movie. Nick was the main character, not Judy, and there was a much darker take on the distinction between predator and prey. You see a great example of that in this deleted scene.
Independence Day: Resurgence seemed like it was going to be such an obvious hit. But the sequel to the 1996 mega-blockbuster, released this past weekend, simply wasn’t very good. Even so, I really, really hope we get a third ID4 installment, because the next movie, as we see teased in Resurgence, looks like it would…
It is also the only really new thing in the whole trailer.
This past Thursday, director Michael Bay introduced a new robot that will be joining his upcoming Transformers movie, The Last Knight. Some fans were quite upset at the addition of this tiny, goofy-looking Autobot to the Transformer movie pantheon, and I have a question for those fans: Really? (I also have a follow-up…
Since The Shallows is a shark movie, director Jaume Collet-Serra researched the crap out of sharks in preparation—the result of which is a film that explores aspects of the creatures we’ve rarely seen before. The weird thing is that the director himself doesn’t see The Shallows as a shark movie.
And you cannot blame the guy. He has been asked about it a billion times, he said he had no problem returning, and now people think he’s pushing for a movie. So count him out.
Pixar movies are funny and fantastic and all ploy at your emotions with wonderful characters and an always relatable story. But almost everything works out in the end of all their movies. What if they didn’t?
Independence Day Resurgence feels like someone took the original film and fast forwarded to only the action scenes. Maybe that sounds good to you, and certainly the sequel’s epic scope exceeds its predecessor. But without characters that mean anything to us, there’s no drama or tension to the second round of this…
Disaster movies are one and the same—we’re all just watching them to see the world come under attack and famous landmarks get destroyed. “Oh my god, did they just do that to the Golden Gate Bridge?” “Not the Sydney Opera House!” But there’s one disaster movie that’s better than them all: Independence Day.
Rogue One is the first Star Wars movie not in the “Saga,” meaning it doesn’t specifically tell a Skywalker-centric adventure. It’s a “story,” making it a Star Wars movie that can be anything. In the case of Rogue One, it’s a heist/war movie about the plans for the first Death Star. So now the question is, what should…
