City of Tiny Lights trailer

Riz Ahmed seemed to be freaking everywhere in 2016, from The Night Of to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and it doesn’t look like he’ll be slowing down any in 2017. He’s got a guest spot on Girls and a supporting role in Una, and he’ll be getting a lead role all to himself in City of Tiny Lights.

Ahmed stars as a down-on-his-luck private eye (is there any other kind in movies?) who gets caught up in a missing-persons case that dredges up some ghosts from his past. Billie Piper stars an ex-girlfriend with whom he has some complicated history. Pete Travis (Dredd) directed. Watch the City of Tiny Lights trailer below.  Read More »

The Big Sick Review

At the Sundance Film Festival, indie romantic comedies are a dime a dozen, and it takes something really special to make one stand out among the horde of movies playing in Park City, Utah. Thankfully, one of those special movies premiered at the festival this weekend.

The Big Sick tells the story of up and coming Pakistani-American comedian Kumail Nanjiani (who just so happens to be played by the Silicon Valley star of the same name, Kumail Nanjiani), living in Chicago and trying to land a gig at the Montreal Comedy Festival. After one of his sets at a local comedy club, he flirts with a woman named Emily (Zoe Kazan), and what starts as a one night stand eventually turns into real romance, and we all know how that goes. But the true story of how real life comedian Kumail Nanjiani met this woman has quite the curveball, making this one of the most unique and authentic romantic comedies I’ve seen in years.

Berlin Syndrome

Given that the Sundance Film Festival consists of literally hundreds of screenings, it’s an inevitability that something will go wrong at some of them. On Friday night, the world premiere of Cate Shortland‘s Berlin Syndrome was hit with spectacularly bad luck when the DCP projection froze roughly 5 or 10 minutes before the ending, leaving star Teresa Palmer to explain the ending to a bemused audience.  Read More »

Hal Jordan shortlist

Green Lantern likely won’t appear until 2019’s Justice League: Part Two. We still don’t know which version of the character we’ll see first in the DC Cinematic Universe, but producer Charles Roven has said the character’s (or characters’) role in part two is tentative. We may not even see Hal Jordan or Jon Stewart until Green Lantern Corps in 2020.

We still have a while to go until Green Lantern Corps, but already a shortlist naming six actors Warner Bros. is considering for the role of Hal Jordan has hit the web. The list includes some of the usual suspects and, oddly, Ryan Reynolds, who already played Jordan in the mediocre 2011 film. Below, check out the Hal Jordan shortlist.

terminator 6

Depending on who you ask, the sequel to Terminator: Genisys either died over a year ago or it has just been on life support as everyone involved assessed whether or not it was time to pull the plug. But let’s face the facts: it’s not a good look when even the young stars of your newly rebooted series think it’s time to let go.

So yes, the news that Terminator 6 is in the works is a surprise and yes, the news that The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day director James Cameron is coming back to “godfather” the film and wants Deadpool director Tim Miller to direct is an even bigger surprise.

split ending

It should come as no surprise that M. Night Shyamalan‘s Split features a big twist. It’s kind of his thing. Everyone, even his fans, has poked fun at his penchant for Big Shocking Reveals, some of which work as stunning reversals and some of which fall flat on their face. The twist in Split is a weird one – for every person who sees it and loses their goddamn mind, there will be someone who has no idea what the hell just happened.

In other words, it’s the kind of thing that demands to be discussed. Huge spoilers ahead. Seriously. If you haven’t seen Split yet, I’d suggest not reading on.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake

Over eight years ago, talk of a Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake began. Hot Tub Time Machine director and Grosse Point Blank co-writer Steve Pink was hired to write and direct the remake, based on the wonderful comedy starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine, which was itself a remake of the 1964 film, Bedtime Story. Pink eventually departed from the project, which is up and running again with Rebel Wilson and (possibly) Anne Hathaway in the starring roles.

Below, learn more about the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake.
