Better Call Saul Gus Fring Los Pollos Hermanos

It’s not like we really need to be convinced to tune in for Better Call Saul season three. The superb first two seasons are reason enough to return for another helping. But just in case you’d like something to whet your appetite, AMC’s cooked up a fun little promo — not for Better Call Saul, exactly, but for Los Pollos Hermanos.

Of course, Breaking Bad fans know this cheery fast food operation isn’t exactly what it seems. It’s actually a front for an extremely successful criminal enterprise run by ruthless kingpin Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito). AMC still isn’t saying whether Fring’s back in season three. But they sure seem interested in reminding you that this guy’s currently kicking around Albuquerque somewhere. Make of that what you will. See the potential Better Call Saul Gus Fring tease below.  Read More »

Coen brothers tv series

Like so many other esteemed filmmakers in recent years, Joel and Ethan Coen are making the move to television.

XX trailer

Horror filmmaking, like most other kinds of filmmaking, tends to be kind of a boys’ club. But the women will get a chance to shine this winter in XX, a horror anthology driven entirely by female directors.

St. Vincent, who is making her directing debut; Roxanne Benjamin, who’s contributed to Southbound and the V/H/S series; and Jovanka Vuckovic, who’s known for her short films including The Captured Bird; with animator Sofia Carrillo (La Casa Triste) weaving them all together.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 - Mantis

Filmmakers, stars, and studio marketing teams will bend over backward to keep a film’s secrets, but the tie-in toy line will give them away every time. Okay, so “every time” is an exaggeration. But as we’ve seen recently with everything from Power Rangers to Beauty and the Beast, toys can be a rich source of information about highly anticipated and closely guarded upcoming releases.

Like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. While we’ve known for a while that Elizabeth Debicki‘s Ayesha would be the villain, the first trailer didn’t show her at all. So our first look at the character comes today in the form of a Funko Pint Size Heroes toy. Check it out below.  Read More »

Justice League

The DC Extended Universe has been off to a rocky start, to put it mildly. Yes, their films have made money, but the audience reactions to Man of SteelBatman v Superman, and Suicide Squad have been divided at best. Still, they’ve got a few promising projects coming up on the slate including Justice League and The Batman. And those involved with the franchise would really, really like you to know that they’re going to be good.

In a new interview, Aquaman screenwriter Will Beall talks up Justice League as “much more fun” and “much poppier” than its somber predecessors. Meanwhile, Ben Affleck reassures fans that, yes, he’s still planning to direct The BatmanRead More »

My Life as a Zucchini trailer

During the Golden Globe Awards this past weekend, you may have noticed a rather bizarre-sounding film buried among all the usual suspects in the Best Animated Film category. While My Life as a Zucchini hasn’t hit U.S. theaters yet, it spent most of 2016 traveling the festival circuit and picking up praise and prizes at every stop. Now it’s Switzerland’s submission for the Foreign Language Oscar, as well as a serious contender for Best Animated Feature.

In other words, if you haven’t heard of this film before, you may want to sit up and pay attention now. And not just because of its awards prospects. Directed by Claude Barras from a script by Céline Sciamma (Girlhood), My Life as a Zucchini looks utterly delicious — poignant and empathetic, gorgeously animated ans strikingly unusual. Watch the My Life as a Zucchini trailer below.
