Solo Synopsis

Disney has released their 2018 preview kit and much of what it contains won’t be new to movie fans who regularly peruse the internet. However, the two synopses provided for Solo: A Star Wars Story and Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 are new and offer some insight into each movie’s story. You can check them out below.

fantastic beasts movies settings

The wizarding world of Harry Potter is about to get a whole lot bigger. While the original children’s fantasy franchise remained firmly in the close-knit magical community in Britain, its spin-off series, Fantastic Beastshas made a concerted effort to move beyond the comfy confines of Hogwarts.

First, the series went West, with the franchise setting foot on American soil for the first time in the New York City-set Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Its sequel, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, will go a tad more international, primarily taking place in Paris. But this isn’t the only globe-trotting that our intrepid magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) will be doing — the next three Fantastic Beasts movies will all take place in a different city.

Everything Sucks Trailer

There has been plenty of nostalgia and love for the 1980s in recent years, but now that we’re inching closer to 2020, it looks like the 1990s are about to enjoy their heyday in the nostalgic spotlight. At least that’s what Netflix is hoping with the teaser for a new high school series set in 1996.

Everything Sucks! is a new 10-episode half-hour dramedy created by Like Crazy writer Ben York Jones and Save the Date writer/director Michael Mohan that follows a group of teens from the AV and drama club as they deal with the trials and tribulations of going to Boring High School. No, seriously, that’s the name of the high school they go to in Boring, Oregon.

Get a first look at the teaser for the series below. Read More »

Echoes Through Time: 45 Years of ‘Westworld’

Westworld Anniversary

Two men ride in on a train, dressed in casual clothes. They’re headed for a vacation, but we’re not sure where. Judging from the landscape passing out the locomotive’s windows, it’s easy to guess the American heartland. But that assumption would indicate that their destination is of natural creation – a product of God’s Design, crafted in a manner we’re still attempting to comprehend. No, entry to where these two well-off individuals are going includes a rather sky-high ticket price, as the arena was manufactured merely to provide them the greatest “violent delights”.

Welcome to Westworld. Leave your suit jacket by the door, as your “host” will see that you’re fitted for either cowboy boots, a Roman Toga, or a suit of armor, so that the adventure you’ve paid good money for can begin as soon as you march out into this artificial realm.

Westworld was born 45 years ago and it is, somehow, still alive and kicking and breaking minds today.

Don't Worry He Won't Get Far on Foot Trailer

This week kicks off the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, and we’ll be catching glimpses of plenty of indie releases that will likely be hitting theaters throughout the year, not to mention some possible awards contenders for next year. In fact, director Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting) seems to have a contender premiering at the festival in the form of a new drama based on the life of cartoonist John Callahan.

Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot is based on John Callahan’s autobiography of the same name, and it sees Joaquin Phoenix playing the man whose life was changed by a near fatal car accident, confining him to a wheelchair, and leading him down a completely different path than he ever intended to take.

last-jedi-trailer-image-rey

Whether you were six or 26-years-old, you probably remember the feeling when you first picked up a lightsaber.

My family recently acquired the Jedi Challenges AR set, and I cannot stop gawking at the lightsaber that came with the package – a near-perfect replica of the historic lightsaber Rey uses in The Last Jedi, the lightsaber that belonged to Luke and to his father before him. Every time the lightsaber catches my eye, I feel compelled to reverently lift it from its case, as I then proceed to swoosh the lightsaber around my living room like a bona fide, Clone Wars-era Jedi. (In fact, since sitting down to write this piece, I’ve already grabbed the lightsaber and re-enacted Rey’s Ahch-To training session and the sequence in Snoke’s throne room and Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon’s duel with Darth Maul, several times each, while experimenting with my Soresu form.)

In a way, I carry a lightsaber with me wherever I go. After stumbling upon a shimmering display of high-end lightsabers at a WonderCon booth two years ago, I snapped a picture and set it as my phone background and haven’t changed it since. More recently, I set my lockscreen as the Dave Filoni sketch of Ahsoka Tano handing Kanan Jarrus a lightsaber during a cut scene from Star Wars Rebels, and it warms my heart whenever I see it.

Chris Hemsworth Marvel Contract

Right now, Chris Hemsworth is making the publicity rounds to promote his war drama 12 Strong, in theaters everywhere this weekend. If you’re curious to find out more about the movie, watch the trailer or check out our full report from the set a little while back. But otherwise, Hemsworth has been getting questions about his most famous role and fans might want to prepare themselves for the end of Thor Odinson.

Chris Hemsworth is done with principal photography on Avengers 4. There will likely end up being some reshoots at some point, simply because that’s how blockbusters operate, but otherwise, the Australian actor confirms that the Marvel Studios sequel marks the end of his current contract with the comic book movie studio. What does that mean for the future of Thor? Read More »

The Best Movies Of Sundance Film Festival History

The Sundance Film Festival isn’t just a film festival, but a look into the future of cinema. As we travel to Park City Utah this year, I thought it would be nice to take a look back at the last 30 years of the festival. Today I begin part one of my two-day, two-part look at the best movies of Sundance Film Festival history. In part one I will focus on the first 15 years of the festival* as the small independent film festival grew into the launching pad for new filmmakers and ground zero for the independent movie boom of the 1990’s.

A Wrinkle in Time images

There’s something magical about seeing a black girl with curly hair take the lead in a Disney tentpole — and A Wrinkle in Time director Ava Duvernay knows how monumental it is. To supplement her unique heroine, Duvernay surrounds newcomer Storm Reid with warm, talented co-stars and a ravishing vision of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic sci-fi novel. And we get to see how that all came together in the new A Wrinkle in Time behind-the-scenes featurette.
