Barry teaser trailer

In the final year of his presidency, Barack Obama has been the subject of not one but two movies about his formative years. The first, Southside With You, premiered at Sundance and opened in theaters in August. The second, Barry, landed a few weeks later at TIFF and is now headed to Netflix before the end of the year.

Set in the early 1980s, Barry picks up with a young Barack Obama just as he’s embarking on his junior year of college at Columbia University. The tricky task of playing Obama goes to Devon Terrell, an Aussie actor whose only major screen credit to date is a failed HBO pilot, and by all accounts he acquits himself quite nicely. Also starring are Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) as his college girlfriend, Ashley Judd as his mother, and Ellar Coltrane (Boyhood) and Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton) as some of his friends. Watch the Barry teaser trailer below.  Read More »

Doctor Strange Agents of SHIELD connection

For the most part, Marvel’s movies and Marvel’s shows operate independently of one another. Characters rarely move between them, and it’s certainly possible to enjoy one side without paying any attention to the other. Still, they all technically belong to the same continuity, and every once in a while, they like to remind you of that fact. Like right now. With Doctor Strange approaching theaters, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has revealed a mystical link to the movie.  Read More »

Jodie Foster Black Mirror

The third season of Black Mirror hits Netflix on Friday, which means we can all look forward to a weekend of gradually feeling more and more queasy about the very technology we’re using to watch the show. And because Netflix knows Black Mirror fans will eventually come out of that miserable binge with a taste for still more disturbing tales about the intersection of technology and human nature, they’re already getting to work on season 4.

Jodie Foster has been set to direct an episode of Black Mirror season 4, which will star Rosemarie DeWitt. And while we wait for that intriguing installment to come together, Netflix has released a new featurette to whet your appetite for season 3.  Read More »

Michael Moore in Trumpland

Never one to stay quiet in the midst of a heated political discussion, Michael Moore has weighed in on the 2016 presidential election with Michael Moore in TrumpLand. Sure, he’s already weighed in a bunch of times through other venues — as Moore likes to point out, he correctly predicted earlier than most that Donald Trump would win the Republican primary. But now the filmmaker gets to offer his two cents in the form of a film.

Or rather, a filmed version of a one-man show. Michael Moore in TrumpLand is essentially a concert film, shot during his performance in Wilmington, Ohio earlier this month. The most surprising thing about it, though, is that despite the title TrumpLand isn’t really about Donald Trump. Rather, it’s an impassioned, if not entirely effective, case for Hillary Clinton.  Read More »

Logan trailer

Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine for the past 16 years. To give you a sense of just how long that is, he’s been in that role before the Marvel Cinematic Universe was even a twinkle in Disney’s eye. He’s lasted through two different Batmen, two different Supermen, and three different Spider-Men. Heck, he even managed to stay on when his own franchise rebooted itself with X-Men: First Class.

But everything’s gotta come to an end sometime. Next year brings Jackman’s next and last performance as the mutant superhero, in the Wolverine solo movie Logan. Directed by James Mangold, the new movie sees Wolverine as we’ve never seen him before: as an old and ailing man. The first Logan trailer has just arrived, and you can watch it below.

UPDATE: The Logan red-band trailer is also here, and you can watch it below.  Read More »

Wolverine 3 title Logan poster

Wolverine may be an ageless mutant, but Hugh Jackman is not, and as a result, we’ve watched him grow older over his past 16+ years on the big screen.
