Interstellar McConaughey Nolan

Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar features a pretty powerful message about love, but it’s not all sweetness and light. It doesn’t shy away from the darker side of humanity, particularly in a third-act twist that puts our heroes in jeopardy.

In a new interview, Nolan discusses that divisive scene, laying out the logic and motivations that led to the big moment. We’re purposely being vague here because we’d hate to be the jerks who ruin the movie, so let’s just slap up a big fat spoiler warning and head to the jump where we can talk freely. Read More »

Jeffrey Wright may not be the lead of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, but as with so many of his other projects, that doesn’t stop him from making a huge impression. His Beetee brings a thoughtful, mature vibe to the series that helps balance out the more volatile energy of his younger co-stars. It’s no wonder this tech geek has become a fan favorite.

At a recent press day in New York, I got a few minutes to chat with Wright about the Hunger Games series. He told me all about his love for Beetee, why he preferred the Catching Fire shoot to the Mockingjay one, and his plans (or lack thereof, rather) for Bond 24.

10 Movie and TV Trends We Love

10 Movie and TV Trends We Love

In our line of work, there are days when we get discouraged. Like the ones where yet another studio announces it’s building a Marvel-style universe, or the ones where we spend three hours watching some $200 million movie only to realize it feels exactly like the last three $200 million movies we saw. It starts to feel like there’s nothing new under the sun, and we might as well stop caring.

But we wouldn’t be doing this if there weren’t even more days that made us rejoice in the movie business, and made us excited to see where things are headed next. Not all trends are bad, even if we’ve complained about some of our least favorite ones in the past. After the jump, check out 10 movie and TV trends we love. Read More »
