Truth Seekers Series

One of the best on-screen duos in recent memory is undoubtedly that of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. They’ve starred in all three of Edgar Wright’s films in his makeshift Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End), not to mention the alien road trip comedy Paul with Seth Rogen, but before that, they worked on the British TV comedy series Spaced. Now, Pegg and Frost will be working on a brand new TV series. Read More »

heathers trailer

These aren’t the Heathers you remember. In the 1988 cult classic, the original Heathers, played with icy conviction by Kim Walker, Shannon Doherty, and Lisanne Falk, were willowy, beautiful mean girls who terrorized their fellow high school students — until Winona Ryder and Christian Slater’s rebellious outsiders took fatal action against them. Heathers was a heightened, sadistic satire of the pitfalls of high school whose body count would arguably not play well post-Columbine.

But here we are, with a modern reboot of Heathers, only with a new trio of Heathers cast as a body positive bully, a gender-binary guy, and an African-American fashionista. How very.

Knights of Ren in The last Jedi

These characters, teased in The Force Awakens, had been expected to appear in the highly anticipated sequel, but they were a no-show. Now, director Rian Johnson explains his reasoning for not using The Knights of Ren in The Last Jedi.

Amazon is Reportedly Cutting Back on Indie Films

amazon indie films

The access battle between the proletarian streaming platforms and exclusive film festivals has raged on since Netflix was booed at Cannes last year, but Amazon Studios has always managed to walk the line. The company would offer the films it acquired on its streaming service, to be sure, but it would also invest in theatrical releases — allowing its fantastic independent films like The Big Sick or The Handmaiden to garner critical acclaim and awards buzz. In the case of The Big Sick, this strategy helped launch the film into being a bonafide box office hit.

In the process, Amazon Studios has become one of the most dependable new media studios in the indie film circuit. But that could soon change. Amazon Studios will reportedly scale back its funding of indie films, shifting its programming strategy to favor commercial hits. And for anyone who has been a fan of the remarkable arthouse films that Amazon has supported in the past few years (Manchester By the SeaThe Salesman, Chi-RaqThe Lost City of ZLove & FriendshipLast Flag Flying, and The Neon Demon), this is a huge bummer.

gemini man cast

Gemini Man has found its female lead. Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who recently delivered fantastic back-to-back performances with 2016’s 10 Cloverfield Lane and last year’s season of Fargo, has joined Ang Lee‘s science-fiction thriller.

And on the production side, Gemini Man has landed John Wick: Chapter 2 stunt coordinator J.J. Perry. Even though the film will be heavily reliant on de-aging technology for star Will Smith to play the dual roles of an aging assassin and his younger clone, it seems like Lee will be combining cutting-edge tech with visceral action choreography.
