Tilda Swinton

Bless Netflix for giving South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho $50 million to make his latest movie, Okja. The marketing materials, including the teaser, are promising what looks like another uncompromised movie from the Snowpiercer and The Host director. A new video featuring CEO of  Mirando Corporation, Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton), is the exact type of weirdness and hilarity we want to see from Swinton and Joon-ho.

Below, in a new Okja video, Mirando raises questions about some serious topics, like pigs and dreams.

47 meters down trailer

The VOD market and SyFy channel are full of riffs and ripoffs of Steven Spielberg’s seminal 1975 film Jaws, but seeing shark attack movies on the big screen has become a rarity in recent years. I’m not sure why that is since the concept of being in the ocean with killer sharks closing in seems like one that will always be relevant. But maybe they’re making a comeback.

A year after the Blake Lively vehicle The Shallows hit theaters, a new shark attack film is on the way. It’s called 47 Meters Deep, and it’s coming just in time to make you think twice about going in the water during your summer beach vacation. Watch the 47 Meters Deep trailer below.

manifesto review 1

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what Manifesto really is. A collaborative art project? A chance to marvel at the majesty of Cate Blanchett for 90 minutes? A history lesson on the many movements that have swept through art and politics over the decades? This is all true. But is it unmissable? That’s where things get tricky. On the surface, it seems hard to see the appeal of the film outside of the festival circuit. Manifesto might play well to film and art geeks, but will average moviegoers be lured in by seeing Galadriel play dress-up for ninety minutes? It’s unlikely and yet, by digging deeper into just what Manifesto is trying to accomplish, there is room for the film to make a considerable impact on a generation slowly becoming more politically conscious and active with each passing day.

Johnny Depp Disneyland Pirates Jack Sparrow

In 2006, when Disney parks began adding characters from the Pirates of the Caribbean films into the theme park attraction that inspired the successful film series, fans were impressed with the level of realism the Imagineers achieved. But even the coolest animatronics pale in comparison to the real thing, and attendees at Disneyland in Anaheim, California yesterday were surprised to discover actual Pirates star Johnny Depp incorporated into the ride in full Captain Jack Sparrow costume. Watch the Johnny Depp Disneyland videos below.

joe johnston to direct narnia the silver chair

We’re going back through the wardrobe.

Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnston has been tapped to helm The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair, which we heard was meant reboot the franchise, seven years after the last Narnia film hit theaters.

The Silver Chair follows Eustace Scrubb (played by The Revenant‘s Will Poulter in Voyage of the Dawn Treader, as seen above) as he and his classmate Jill Pope are tasked by Aslan to find a missing prince. There’s no word on whether the original cast — though Poulter’s Eustace would be the only returning character — would be back for the new film.

Doof Warrior

Coma the Doof Warrior is dead, but if and when George Miller makes another Mad Max sequel, the onesie-loving, flame-throwing guitarist could return. During the many delays of Mad Max: Fury Road, backstories were created for the characters, including one for the Doof Warrior. Miller has a whole explanation for how Coma started working for Immortan Joe and even his guitar’s origin, and the director says that he will bring the character back.

Find out more about the Doof Warrior returning in future Mad Max movies below.

jurassic world 2

Even though production on Jurassic World 2 is currently at the halfway point, we still know very little about the sequel. Jeff Goldblum surprisingly joined the sequel this week, and the tyrannosaurus rex that injured him and chased him in a Jeep will be back again (hopefully there will be some kind of reunion played for laughs), and there is supposedly a submarine sequence. Beyond that, all we have are some vague details on what the movie will be about. But today we get a little tidbit of information about one of the new cast members.

James Cromwell joined the cast of Jurassic World 2 back in February, though details on his character weren’t revealed at the time. We guessed that since the movie has something to do with dinosaur rights that Cromwell’s character might be a dinosaur sympathizer since in real life he’s a staunch vegan and animal rights activist. Some new Jurassic World 2 character details from Cromwell indicate that we might be right, at least partially. Read More »
