Thor Ragnarok Doctor Strange

Taika Waititi may be new to the Marvel universe, but he’s already an old pro at dodging questions. Last month, a Thor: Ragnarok set photo seemingly revealed a connection to another upcoming Marvel movie, Doctor Strange. Now, however, the director is trying his best to downplay any speculation about a possible cameo or crossover, suggesting the Easter egg was “maybe a tease just for people who wanted to zoom into that photo.”

Meanwhile, speaking of Doctor Strange, we’ve got a little more information on what exactly the Sorcerer Supreme will be doing in his own movie. Marvel Ireland has released a new Doctor Strange synopsis that teases his journey in slightly more detail.  Read More »

A Hologram for the King animated sequence

Despite the fact that it’s directed by Tom Tykwer, based on a book by Dave Eggers, and stars Tom Hanks, A Hologram for the King came and went earlier this year without making so much as a ripple. It made a paltry $4 million in U.S. theaters and scored a so-so 71% on Rotten Tomatoes — neither good nor bad enough to make people wonder. Heck, our review of it was titled There’s a Tom Hanks Movie in Theaters and You Didn’t Even Know About It.

But now that it’s made its way to home video, you’ll have another chance to check it out. And that seems like as good an excuse as any to check out a longer version of the film’s first and best sequence, a partially animated fantasy from Austrian animation studio NÖT. It’s weird and colorful and feels kind of desperate, in a way that really suits the movie. Watch the A Hologram for the King opening sequence, which features a cartoon Tom Hanks and a choreographed dance sequence, below.  Read More »

Mark Romanek Gambles on ‘Septillion to One’

Mark Romanek

It’s been a while since Mark Romanek put out a feature film — six years, to be exact, but it sounds like he could have another one gearing up in the not-too-distant future. The Never Let Me Go director has just been set to helm Septillion to One, a romantic comedy that has been described as “Silver Linings Playbook meets Ocean’s 11.” If that description rings a bell, it’s probably because Alexander Payne was circling this project several months ago.  Read More »

Annabelle Teaser Trailer

2014’s Annabelle was no great shakes, trading the artfully crafted tension and atmosphere of The Conjuring for cheap scares lifted from other, better movies. But it did make a lot of money: $256 million, to be precise, which is all the more impressive when you realize it cost just $6.5 million to make. So of course there was going to be a sequel.

Annabelle 2 is directed by Swedish filmmaker David F. Sandberg, who just made his feature film debut with Lights OutMiranda OttoAnthony LaPaglia, and Stephanie Sigman star in the horror sequel, which has just revealed its first promo. Watch the Annabelle 2 teaser trailer below.  Read More »
