Alex Garland interview

Writer/director Alex Garland set a high bar for himself with Ex Machina, his stellar 2015 directorial debut. That sci-fi movie had a lot on its mind, but his newest film, Annihilation, is far more cerebral. It’s one of the most challenging movies of the year: bold, beautiful, and haunting in a way that occasionally verges on being experimental.

Not long ago, I had the opportunity to sit down with Garland and actor Oscar Isaac, who plays a key role in the film, to talk to them about bringing this story to the big screen. We touched on the film’s behind-the-scenes clashes, whether or not Garland was concerned with audiences being able to keep up with what he’s doing in this movie, Isaac’s approach to his troubled character, and much more. Read our full Oscar Isaac and Alex Garland interview below.

Making of Early Man

Even though Black Panther is the talk of Hollywood right now, there’s another movie that opened last weekend that deserves our attention, and that’s Aardman Animation’s latest production Early Man.

In an age when computer animation is so prominent, stop-motion animated has gone by the wayside. But thankfully studios like Aardman Animation are keeping it alive be creating fantastic feature length adventures using clay models that move frame-by-frame. Early Man is one of those films, and you can take a look at the step-by-step process of how this film is made with an extensive batch of behind the scenes featurettes below. Read More »

After spending the first portion of her career acting in front of the camera, Olivia Wilde is shifting gears. She was bitten by the producing bug back in 2010, and has since shepherded movies like 2013’s Drinking Buddies (which features one of her best performances to date) and 2015’s Meadowland into existence. Now Wilde is making her feature directorial debut with Booksmart, which will star Kaitlyn Dever (Short Term 12) and Beanie Feldstein (Lady Bird) as a pair of straight-laced high schoolers who decide to party like crazy before they graduate.
