Godzilla 2 Mothra

Godzilla 2 (formerly titled Godzilla: King of the Monsters) began production last month, and we’ve since seen a few set photos emerge that indicate overturned cars, things on fire, and the general amount of destruction one might expect from a 350-foot-tall giant lizard stomping around and battling monstrous enemies.

One of those enemies is the winged creature Mothra, and a new photo from the film’s marketing department gives us another look at Godzilla’s formidable foe.

Rick and Morty Season 3

With all the hullabaloo of San Diego Comic-Con, there’s so much to see and do that we don’t even have time to cover every single show we love. One of the programs that fell by the wayside for us over the weekend was Adult Swim’s incredible animated series Rick and Morty. It’s one of my favorite shows on TV right now and it killed me to miss it since the /Film crew had so much more to cover.

Thankfully, the internet is a helpful place, and you can pretend that you were at Comic-Con yourself by catching up on all the big updates that came from the Rick and Morty panel. That includes a new sneak peek behind the scenes of an episode that will take the titular duo to the Wasteland of Mad Max, details on some of the guest stars coming this season, and the triumph of co-creator Justin Roiland finally getting his hands on the retired McDonald’s Mulan Szechuan sauce.

Find out all the new details about Rick and Morty season 3 below. Read More »

Zack Snyder DC Films

While Christopher Nolan kept DC Comics movies in the public eye with his Dark Knight trilogy starting in the mid-2000s, Nolan’s insistence that his movies exist in their own cinematic realm resulted in the higher-ups at Warner Bros. and DC looking for a new creative partner who could kickstart a cinematic universe to rival what was happening at Marvel Studios. They chose Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen), who directed Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and (most of) Justice League, but a new report claims that Snyder’s influence over the DCEU will be significantly smaller moving forward. And if that weren’t enough, Suicide Squad director David Ayer might be leaving the DCEU entirely.

Alias Grace trailer

Another Margaret Atwood adaptation is coming to a computer screen near you. But this time, the bonnets worn by the women in Alias Grace are a mark of historical fiction rather than an oppressive dystopia.

Netflix is adapting Atwood’s award-winning novel into a six-episode miniseries starring Sarah Gadon as the titular Grace Marks, who finds herself convicted of the brutal murder of her employer, and without memory of why.

Michael Caine Dunkirk

Ever since he played Bruce Wayne’s wry butler Alfred Pennyworth in 2005’s Batman Begins, Michael Caine has been a good luck charm for director Christopher Nolan. The Oscar-winning actor has appeared in every feature Nolan has directed in the past decade, including Dunkirk, the filmmaker’s World War II film that’s currently in theaters. Find out about the Michael Caine Dunkirk cameo below.

Mohawk Review

Fresh from his ghostly triumph We Are Still Here, writer/director Ted Geoghegan finds himself combing the woods for a different kind of horror with Mohawk. One part revenge thriller, one part historical drama, one part home invasion where the United States is the home being invaded, this ambitious indie project delivers a spark of real-world tragedy yet falls prey to its low budget limitations.

The hook of Mohawk seems simple, but old grudges add gasoline to the fire and ensure no one leaves without blood on their conscience. It opens near the end of the War of 1812 as tribe members Oak (Kaniehtiio Horn) and Calvin Two Rivers (Justin Rain), and British soldier Joshua Pinsmail (Eamon Farren) try to convince elder Wentahawi (Sheri Foster) to join in war against the Americans. She refuses, and things start racing downhill once Two Rivers murders a bunch of American militiamen as they sleep. A cadre of American soldiers is dispatched to hunt him down, but, like the old adage says, if you embark on a journey of revenge dig, like, fifteen or sixteen graves.

Preacher Sokosha Review

(Each week, we’re going to discussion Preacher’s season 2 by examining the differences between the original comics and AMC’s television adaptation.)

This week’s review is going to be a little different, because for once, the Preacher comics are directly represented in the TV show. In fact, they’re shown on screen!

See, when Jesse, Cassidy, and Tulip want to bone up on their knowledge of just what the Saint of Killers is all about, they head on over to the graphic novel section of their local library. There, they pull down what turns out to be Preacher: Saint of Killers, a real four-issue limited series that reveals the killer cowboy’s backstory.
