Justice League Dark Concept Art

While the union of the Justice League only just happened on the big screen for the first time last month, their darker, fantasy counterparts from Justice League Dark have been in development for years. The project has gone through several directors, including Guillermo del Toro a little while back and most recently Edge of Tomorrow helmer Doug Liman, but it’s currently without a director as a new script from Housebound scribe Gerard Johnstone is being written right now. However, as we wait to see what happens with the DC Comics property, we can imagine what it might have been like if another filmmaker ended up getting hired for the job.

Joseph Kahn is best known for directing music videos for the likes of Taylor Swift, Eminem, Katy Perry and Britney Spears. More recently he directed the acclaimed rap battle indie film Bodied, but at one point, Kahn was in the running to director Justice League Dark, and he recently revealed some of the concept art that was part of his pitch.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Script

Many Star Wars fans seem to be divided when it comes to their feelings on Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The film is quite a departure from what many have come to expect from the saga that started all the way back in 1977, and that’s largely why so many fans either love it or hate it. But there’s one Star Wars tradition that was kept intact, despite many fans initially thinking it was axed as one of the many decisions director Rian Johnson made in in a movie that feels decidedly different from the chapters that came before it.

In every Star Wars movie, at least one character says “I have a bad feeling about this” or some variation on that line. However, upon first inspection, Star Wars: The Last Jedi doesn’t appear to have this line anywhere in the movie. But let’s not forget that there are many characters in the Star Wars galaxy who don’t speak English. And it turns out the traditional line was given to one of them in the Star Wars: The Last Jedi script. Read More »

Lord of the Rings cast

Another day, another story accusing Harvey Weinstein of being a terrible human being, as director Peter Jackson recently claimed that Weinstein actively blocked Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino from joining the Lord of the Rings cast. This is just the latest in an ever-growing list of despicable behavior attributed to Weinstein, who was recently forced out of The Weinstein Company in light of multiple sexual assault allegations.

snl-kevinhart-bumper1

Usually the Christmas episode of Saturday Night Live is an exciting, joyous, hilarious star-studded affair. With Kevin Hart hosting the final episode of 2017, it seemed like a safe bet that this episode would deliver the goods, maybe even with some help from his Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle co-stars Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black and Karen Gllian. But unfortunately, that was not the case.

Returning for his third time hosting, Kevin Hart brought his signature high energy to the late night sketch comedy series, but he certainly didn’t bring many laughs. Any genuine hilarity was few and far between, and most of the sketches felt half-baked, lazy and fell flat.

Let’s run through the best and worst sketches of the Kevin Hart hosted Saturday Night Live below. 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 revisit an R.E.M. classic, have some fun with a couple of twin actresses, go bowling with some skinheads in Amarillo, Texas, think twice about ever disrespecting a woman’s right to move freely about the country, and linger on David Bowie’s final years. Read More »
