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.

2017 pga nominations

One of the big surprises of this awards season so far has been Deadpool‘s emergence as the scrappy little superhero movie that could. While its Golden Globe nomination wasn’t entirely unexpected, its Writers Guild nomination raised a few eyebrows. And now the Merc’s managed to wrangle himself a Producers Guild nomination as well.

Otherwise, it’s business as usual for the PGA nominations, which also went to favorites like La La Land and Moonlight. See the full list of 2017 PGA nominations below.  Read More »

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in La La Land

La La Land is on a roll.

Twin Peaks premiere date

The return of Twin Peaks has been shrouded in mystery, and not just the odd, surreal Lynchian kind. Up until now, we’ve had little idea about when the show would premiere or even how many episodes we’d get. But today at their TCA session, Showtime shared the first crumbs of information we’ve had about Twin Peaks in a good long while, including an exact release date and episode count.  Read More »

Girls season 6 trailer

Everyone’s gotta grow up sometime, even self-absorbed creative types eking out a living in Brooklyn. Which is why this year marks the sixth and final season of Girls, the show that turned Lena Dunham into a household name and set Adam Driver on the path toward a galaxy far, far away.

Over the years, we’ve watched as Hannah and her friends fought and made up, pursued new relationships and new careers, faced changing circumstances and tried to better themselves. Now it’s time to see what all of that character development has amounted to, and send them off with one last push toward adulthood. Considering they’re still bickering about who the real grown-ups are among them, though, maturing may be easier said than done. Watch the Girls season 6 trailer below.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 - Star-Lord Father

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has already resolved one big mystery left over from the last film — the question of Star-Lord’s true parentage. As we learned over the summer, Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) is actually the son of Ego, the Living Planet, played by national treasure Kurt Russell. But while discovering you’re descended from an actual planet is the kind of thing that could only happen in the Marvel universe, director James Gunn indicates the father-son relationship will be rooted in more grounded emotions.

Transformers: The Last Knight photo Cybertron

Transformers: The Last Knight promises to take the franchise to all sorts of places it’s never been before, like Arthurian Britain and Nazi-era Germany. But one of the film’s most exciting locations looks to be entirely off-world.

A new high-res still from Transformers: The Last Knight shows Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) and Vivian Wembley (Laura Haddock) poking around some sort of mysterious ruin. It doesn’t look like anything on Earth, which has us wondering if the pair may have followed Optimus Prime into outer space in his search for the Creators. Check it out and judge for yourself below.

Santa Clarita Diet

I didn’t know that a Drew Barrymore / Timothy Olyphant cannibalism satire was something I needed in my life, but now that I know Santa Clarita Diet is happening I’m kind of upset it’s not already here. During the Golden Globes last night, Netflix debuted the first teasers for the new series, which hails from Better Off Ted and Andy Richter Controls the Universe creator Victor Fresco. Check ’em out below.  Read More »

Rinko Kikuchi Pacific Rim 2

As excited as we are to meet the new leads of Pacific Rim: Uprising, including the lead character played by John Boyega, we’ve also been curious about which stars from the original might resurface. Although producer Guillermo del Toro has promised that “a lot” of familiar faces would return, more concrete details have been hard to come by. But now that shooting on Pacific Rim: Uprising is officially underway, a new set photo might have revealed some big news.

It looks like Rinko Kikuchi will be back as Mako Mori, along with Charlie Day and Burn Gorman as previously rumored. Not only that, it seems Karl Urban may be part of the cast as well.

UPDATE: Karl Urban has responded to rumors of his being in Pacific Rim: Uprising. See what he had to say below. Read More »

Elisabeth Moss in The Handmaid's Tale

Although Hulu’s been in the original programming game for a few years now, they don’t seem to draw quite as much buzz as competitors like Amazon and Netflix. But they may have a chance to change that this spring, when The Handmaid’s Tale arrives on the streaming service.

Based on the classic novel by Margaret AtwoodThe Handmaid’s Tale envisions a not-so-distant future in which the United States has been overthrown and refashioned as the Republic of Gilead, a theocratic dictatorship guided by “traditionalist values.” Moss is Offred, a “handmaid” given to a powerful government official (Joseph Fiennes) to bear his children. Watch the new The Handmaid’s Tale teaser below.  Read More »
