Crisis on Earth-X

With Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow all situated at The CW, it’s now customary to have all of the superheroes check into each others’ shows for a major crossover event. Last season was the first time Supergirl was brought into the mix, and this season, we’ll see new iterations of the DC Comics superheroes getting in on the action, this time as super-powered villains.

The CW and Warner Bros. Television have announced this season’s four-part crossover will be titled Crisis on Earth-X, and they’ve even commissioned legendary comic artist Phil Jimenez (Infinite Crisis) to create a comic book cover teasing the epic TV event coming this November. Find out details on the Crisis on Earth-X crossover below. Read More »

Steven Spielberg Documentary Trailer

There aren’t too many filmmakers who general audiences know by name. But if there’s one name still making movies today that they’ll recognize the most, it’s Steven Spielberg.

The man has been behind the movie magic and suspense of Jaws and Jurassic Park, the wonder of Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, the adventure and action of Raiders of the Lost Ark and Minority Report, and the powerful drama of The Color Purple and Schindler’s List. Now he’s getting in front of the camera for an extensive documentary profile on HBO that is simply called Spielberg, and the first trailer not only has the man himself, but it also features an impressive array of talent talking about the Oscar-winning filmmaker and his undeniable influence on cinema at large.

blade runner 2049 behind the scenes

Blade Runner 2049 is getting closer and closer to its release date, yet much of the film is still shrouded in secrecy. In an era where most high-profile films have almost their entire plot-lines spoiled before they hit theaters, it’s fairly impressive that director Denis Villeneuve and company have managed to play things so close to the vest.

Now, a series of behind-the-scenes features totaling over 20 minutes have arrived to give us our best look yet at the futuristic world Villeneuve has created. See the extensive Blade Runner 2049 behind the scenes clips below.

Dermot Mulroney - Dylan McDermott - LA to Vegas TV Series

For years, audiences have had trouble telling apart actors Dylan McDermott and Dermot Mulroney. There’s even an entire Saturday Night Live game show sketch with contestants trying to pinpoint which is which. Now audiences will be even more confused, because the two actors are going to appear together in a new TV show coming to FOX early next year.

LA to Vegas is one of FOX’s new comedy programs that will debut on the network in the midseason. The series, which is executive produced by Adam McKay (The Big Short), Will Ferrell (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy), Lon Zimmet (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), and Steve Levitan (Modern Family), follows Dylan McDermott (the one from Miracle on 34th Street and The Practice) as the captain of a plane from Jackpot Airlines, which flies the same roundtrip flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas for all those people looking for a big win on the strip. The part Mulroney is taking on the series will be a guest role that will allow the two actors to play off each other magnificently. 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 scratch our chins trying to figure out what we just watched, get the band back together at Riot Fest, ask the dangerous question about whether there’s a link between vaccinations and autism, sit in awe by the sheer power of sight and sound, and feel transported by a story about young love and the mafia.

Pennywise Featurette

For one generation, Tim Curry’s performance as Pennywise the Dancing Clown in the made-for-TV adaptation of Stephen King’s It will always be the first thing that comes to mind when they think about the character. But I’d venture to say with the popularity of director Andy Muschietti’s new film version of the classic horror novel, actor Bill Skarsgard‘s take on the shapeshifting entity is going to burrow its way into peoples’ minds and give Curry a run for his money in the long-term.

As It continues to dominate at the box office during its third week, Warner Bros. has released a new Pennywise featurette devoted to Skarsgard’s chilling performance. The video features interviews with the actor himself and the Losers’ Club kids talking about the first time they saw him in character, and you can check it out below.
