Deadpool - Tim Miller

It’s unfortunate Tim Miller isn’t returning to the director’s chair for Deadpool. Following his departure, rumors began to swirl around about why 20th Century Fox and the director parted ways. A budget dispute was a big rumor, but Miller denies that along with a few other rumors.

Below, Tim Miller talks Deadpool 2 to clear up some of the misinformation out there.

An Inconvenient Truth Sequel

It’s been over 10 years since An Inconvenient Truth debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, played at theaters around the world, and then won the Academy Award for Documentary Feature. The film from director Davis Guggenheim followed former vice president and presidential candidate Al Gore on the lecture circuit as he campaigns to raise public awareness of the dangers of global warming and calls for immediate action to curb its destructive effects on the environment.

Well, here we are over a decade later, and global warming is still a problem that is getting worse all the time. That means it’s time for An Inconvenient Truth sequel, and Paramount Pictures will be bringing it back to Sundance, where the first film debuted back in 2006. Find out more after the jump.

Spider-Man Homecoming Sequel Release Date

The reception for the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer (watch it here) appears to have been exactly what Sony Pictures was hoping for, because today they announced a release date for the sequel. That’s right, even though Spider-Man: Homecoming doesn’t arrive until July of next year, Sony Pictures is so confident in their collaboration with Marvel Studios to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe that they’ve staked out a date in the summer of 2019.

That’s not the only summer sequel release date news from Sony Pictures either, because the placement of the Spider-Man Homecoming sequel in the summer of 2019 has resulted in the studio shifting their release of Bad Boys 4, the sequel to a sequel that hasn’t even started shooting yet.

Find out both the Bad Boys 4 and Spider-Man Homecoming sequel release date after the jump. Read More »

Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we’re wondering what Mondo is up to, what the spawn of Pierce Bronson is up to, what the guy who choreographed Black Swan is up to, and then wonder aloud at who David Stratton is, and we get genuinely excited about a Victorian period piece.  Read More »

Power Rangers Justice League Crossover

Was there almost a sex scene in James Cameron‘s abandoned film adaptation of Spider-Man? Did you know Tom Holland actually enrolled in American high school to help prepare for Spider-Man: Homecoming? All that and more in this edition of Superhero Bits. Read More »

rogue one clip

Thanks to all the trailers, clips, photos, and featurettes released so far, we know very well what Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will look like. But what will it sound like? We’d be excited to hear new Star Wars music under any circumstance, but we’ve been especially curious about Rogue One because it’s the very first Star Wars film not to be scored by John Williams. Instead, Michael Giacchino is stepping into that role — and he’s got a tough balance to strike, trying to meld the familiar and the new.

Obviously, we won’t know for sure how his efforts panned out until Rogue One opens next weekend. But we do have a little taste of his work to share today. The first two snippets of Giacchino’s Rogue One score have been released, and you can hear them below.  Read More »

Ben Affleck's Batman Movie Release Date

For awhile now, Warner Bros. Pictures has had their release slate for the DC Extended Universe locked down for the next few years with some minor changes here and tehre. However, there has been another change made to the schedule in order to accommodate a movie that wasn’t part of the original ambitious schedule for DC Comics movies down the pipeline.

Ben Affleck was cast as Batman in this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice all the way back in August of 2013, but it wasn’t until the following summer that we got word of Warner Bros. developing a new solo Batman movie. Since then the movie has grown to be quite an anticipated project with Ben Affleck working on the script with DC’s Geoff Johns as well as getting behind the camera as director.

Now we have an idea of when to expect Ben Affleck’s movie, reportedly titled The Batman, in theaters, because one of DC’s scheduled superhero movies is being pushed back for it. Find out more about Ben Affleck’s Batman movie release date below. Read More »

afi awards

We’re in awards season, which means it’s the time of year when critics’ groups praise their favorites, top 10 lists are published, and words like “overrated” and “underrated” become overused. Awards season can lead to healthy or unnecessarily heated debates among film fans online. The AFI Awards 2016 Official Selections may cause a disagreement or two, especially since they awarded Mel Gibson‘s Hacksaw Ridge and Clint Eastwood‘s Sully, but they’ve also selected other titles that do represent the best of 2016.

Below, see which movies the AFI Awards honored for the 17th year of voting.

westworld soundtrack

Westworld‘s first season ended on Sunday and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about that wild, weird, and mentally discombobulating 90-minute finale. No show since Game of Thrones has commanded so much of my attention and no series since Lost has seen my falling down so many rabbit holes of discussion. I’m not sure if I’m ready to call it the best show on television right now, but it is certainly the most show on television right now, jamming more ideas and concepts into single episodes than most series can manage in their entire runs. It’s something special.

And while we begin the long and agonizing wait for season two (which is looking to arrive in 2018 at the earliest), Ramin Djawadi‘s complete score for the first season, along with all of those piano covers of pop songs, has arrived online to stream and purchase.
