Billionair Boys Club Trailer

Last fall, Kevin Spacey became one of many powerful men in Hollywood to be shunned from the industry due to sexual misconduct. Not only was he suspended from House of Cards, but he was written entirely out of the final season of the show, and several other projects set up at Netflix involving the actor and producer were scrapped entirely. On top of that, he was replaced by Christopher Plummer in the kidnapping thriller All the Money in the World. But it looks like one movie couldn’t ditch Kevin Spacey so easily.

Billionaire Boys Club follows the story of a group of Los Angeles private school boys, including Ansel Elgort and Taron Egerton, who set up a Ponzi scheme (or pyramid scheme) in the 1980s and somehow end up involved with a murder. Kevin Spacey stars as the man who bankrolls the scheme and ends up swindling them, and despite his presence in the movie, the film is still being released this summer. Read More »

gotti rotten tomatoes user reviews

Following a dismal critical reception and an even more dismal box office performance, Gotti has released a new ad getting to the alleged heart of the problem: the critics. The bizarre ad for John Travolta’s mob movie attacks the critics that tore down Gotti while boasting about the rave “user” reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. But there’s something fishy about those Gotti Rotten Tomatoes user reviews that the marketing is so proud of.

jurassic world 3 info

Last week, I had the opportunity to talk to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom director J.A. Bayona about the making of his latest film. We talk about why he decided to direct Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom after turning down the first film, his very collaborative relationship with co-writer/producer Colin Trevorrow, the creation of one of my favorite action sequences from the film, and the decision to make this a story about saving the dinosaurs.

You can read the full interview below. There are no real spoilers in the discussion (the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom one shot action sequence we talk about is in the trailers), so feel free to dive in.

A father scrambles to find his missing teenaged daughter, wracking his brain to think of anything that could give him a clue to her whereabouts. With no other options, he begins to comb through her digital life and discovers that he didn’t know his daughter nearly as well as he thought.

This is Searching, an upcoming thriller starring John Cho that unfolds entirely across computer screens. It’s an innovative and twisty mystery, and it’s one of the best films of this year so far. Take a look at the new Searching trailer and poster below.

(Welcome to Let’s Get Animated!, a column that spotlights the best of film animation. In this edition: In honor of the release of Incredibles 2, all the Pixar sequels ranked from worst to best.)

While Pixar‘s name has become synonymous with masterful and profound original animated films, it’s no stranger to sequels. Incredibles 2 hit theaters this weekend, making it the seventh sequel that the animation giant has put out.

But — despite the poor reputation that many sequels have in Hollywood — these Pixar sequels are some of the best works that the studio has produced. Thankfully, Incredibles 2 is no exception — but where does the second The Incredibles film fall in the list of every Pixar sequel ever? Here are all the Pixar sequels, ranked.

While it still hasn’t been determined how those episodes will be spread out over the coming years, this still means fans won’t have to wait a long time between seasons anymore. Read More »

Comcast Fox deal

Update 6/19/2018: According to CNBC, Fox’s board meets tomorrow to discuss Comcast’s bid, and if Fox decides they prefer Comcast’s offer to Disney’s offer, Disney has five days to match. The Mouse House “is expected to add cash to its bid” in addition to the stock-based offer it currently has in place. Our original article follows.

Things just got slightly more complicated in the ongoing saga of 21st Century Fox. Many of the company’s assets were long thought to be acquired by Disney, but as promised, Comcast has now officially swooped in with a superior offer to acquire Fox’s film studio, most of its TV channels, and more. And it looks like they’re coming out swinging: a Comcast Fox deal would mean that Comcast would buy the Fox assets for a hefty $65 billion, far surpassing Disney’s offer of $52 billion.

Now Scream This: Science Gone Wrong!

Science Experiment Horror Movies Streaming

(Welcome to Now Scream This, a column where horror experts Chris Evangelista and Matt Donato tell you what scary, spooky, and spine-tingling movies are streaming and where you can watch them.)

Matt: If anything can be learned from this week’s “Now Scream This,” I’m left with two lessons. One: humanity needs to accept its universal role and stop tampering with unknown forces. Two: never let Chris pick all his movies first because there will be nothing left. Sci-fi horror has always been less represented on streaming platforms (which we found out already), and sticking with our Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom tie-in, history hath repeated itself. No bother. I’m back at it, fudging rules and making it all work. Or, like, salvaging a raging dumpster fire. Both descriptions fit.

Chris: When will man learn to never tamper in god’s domain? Beats me! Until then, we’ll have to make do with movies focused on science gone terribly wrong. In honor of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Matt and I have scoured the net to bring back these perversions of science – films that follow the Jurassic tradition of scientific hubris gone wild. As a side note: I really wanted to put David Cronenberg’s The Fly on here, but The Fly isn’t streaming. At all. What hellscape is this?

sicario day of the soldado early buzz

The announcement of a Sicario sequel was met with some raised eyebrows. How do you follow up Denis Villeneuve‘s powerful, gripping drama about the escalating war on drugs – and do so without the return of Villeneuve, cinematographer Roger Deakins, or star Emily Blunt? Early marketing for Sicario: Day of the Soldado was a bit confused as well, with some trailers suggesting that it was a morally gray prestige thriller in the vein of the first film while others showcased a bombastic action movie.

Fans were understandably skeptical about the sequel directed by Stefano Sollima, but the Sicario Day of the Soldado early buzz proves that their worries were unfounded. Here are what critics have to say about the new movie.
