Earlier this month, the Tower of Terror ride at Disney’s California Adventure permanently closed to make way for a Guardians of the Galaxy ride, coming later this year. And though the Tower of Terror at Walt Disney World in Florida remains, the CA closure reminded us of the movie the ride inspired 20 years ago.
Sometimes, letting yourself get too feverishly excited about an upcoming film can backfire. But a letdown doesn’t seem imminent with Jeff Nichols’ upcoming scifi thriller Midnight Special, which has a fantastic cast (Michael Shannon, Adam Driver, Kirsten Dunst) and gives off major Spielberg-meets-Carpenter vibes.
Starman, E.T., Close Encounters of the Third Kind. They’re all films that director Jeff Nichols cites as influences for his upcoming sci-fi film Midnight Special. And you can see that Eighties/Steven Spielberg influence both in the first image and poster released from the film.
Some of the coolest science fiction movies of all time are love stories — Eternal Sunshine, Brazil, and plenty of others. Combining big ideas with an epic passion just makes sense. But why do so many films fail to pull off this combination? Watching the new movie Upside Down, which fails so spectacularly as a love…
We're still pretty excited for Juan Diego Solanas' strange romance movie Upside Down. The premise is totally ridiculous — Jim Sturgess and Kristen Dunst are in love, but live on opposite planets connected by the sky with opposing gravity forces — but the actual look to this M.C. Escher flick is simply stunning.
Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst are gravity-crossed lovers in director Juan Diego Solanas' romance movie Upside Down. Set on two planets that share the same atmosphere, this whole thing feels like the melodramatic baby of Dr. Seuss and M.C. M.C. Escher. But it does have one thing going for it: intense beauty. This…
You've probably heard that Melancholia is depressing and nihilistic — after all, it starts with the world being destroyed, and then rewinds, so that the rest of the film takes place on an Earth we know is doomed.
Watch as Kirsten Dunst embraces the reality that the end of the world is nigh — by calling the Earth evil and refusing to grieve for our planet! It's disaster porn, Lars von Trier style!
Watch Kirsten Dunst experience the end of the world, Lars Von Trier style, in Melancholia. Possibly NSFW, due to naked Dunst.
We've been eagerly following the science fiction love story Upside Down (starring Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst). The film follows two star-crossed lovers trapped in alternate universes. New images and details are slowly starting to reveal the different dimensions!
We've been wondering for a long time which author could replace Philip K. Dick as Hollywood's idea spigot. But now a strong candidate has emerged: Haruki Murakami, the Japanese master of weirdness who's already spawned two movies.
We're getting lovesick looking for more details on Juan Solanas' scifi romance Upside Down. Not only will it star the heart-flutter-inducing Jim Sturgess, but Solanas put the brilliant Watchmen designer Alex McDowell in charge of his trippy inverted worlds.
Another round of Spider-Man rumors had us hoping that the fourth installment would be Kirsten Dunst's last. Is it too much to hope there's a grain of truth this time around?
We mentioned the other day that Kirsten Dunst doesn't seem to be a lock for Spider-Man 4 and 5 yet, and already people are anointing a new lead actress. Best of all, she's someone you've already seen in the movies. Elizabeth Banks played long-suffering Daily Bugle secretary Betty Brant in the first few films, but only…
