El Camino Christmas trailer

Leave it to Netflix to drop a trailer for a movie I’ve never heard of that’s coming out in just over two weeks. While Thanksgiving is upon us now, the streaming service is pushing ahead and getting into the holiday spirit by releasing a trailer for a film called El Camino Christmas. It’s a small-scale hostage comedy that looks like the type of rough-hewn romp that could provide a bit of levity right now – which sounds like a gift we all can be thankful for. Read More »

Community movie

The final episode of Dan Harmon‘s brilliant sitcom Community aired on Yahoo Screen – an entertainment service that doesn’t exist anymore – back in 2015. The show sort of limped across the finish line as it lost key cast members in the lead-up to its finale, and though the series ended with a whimper, the first few seasons are some of the funniest, cleverest, and straight-up best television of the past decade.

Harmon has been talking about making a Community movie for years (remember when #SixSeasonsAndAMovie was a big deal?), but things have been quiet on that front for a while. In a new interview, the showrunner explains that he’s been meeting with The Russo Brothers (Avengers: Infinity War) and director Justin Lin (Fast Five) about the possibility of actually making the movie.

Aquaman underwater scenes

Your mileage may vary on whether you enjoyed Jason Momoa‘s cinematic interpretation of Aquaman in Warner Bros.’ Justice League, but even if you dug his portrayal, it’s not controversial to say that his limited time underwater in that film was a bit underwhelming. But don’t let that scare you off from the character’s upcoming solo movie: director James Wan has revealed that his Aquaman underwater scenes are going to be different than the air bubble approach we saw in Zack Snyder’s movie.

Andy Serkis Flarsky

Andy Serkis has built his career on stellar performance-capture work in memorable movies like The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the new Planet of the Apes movies, and now he’s been cast in one of his most challenging roles yet: a human male.

Serkis, who has obviously played humans before in movies like The Prestige and Avengers: Age of Ultron, has been added to the cast of a major Hollywood comedy: a Seth Rogen-starrer for Lionsgate called Flarsky. Read on for more about who he’ll play.

When We're Together video

When Frozen was released in 2013, it became a smash hit on a scale that caught Walt Disney Animation by surprise. Part of the reason for its success was the movie’s soundtrack, which was full of catchy and memorable songs – chief among them being “Let It Go,” the movie’s most show-stopping musical number. It remains to be seen whether the upcoming Frozen 2 will produce a song that’s on that same level, but Olaf’s Frozen Adventure – Disney’s new holiday featurette that continues the Frozen story – certainly tries with “When We’re Together,” a new song that’s gunning for the top spot on your holiday playlists this season. Check out the official lyric video below.

Lizzy Caplan Gambit

20th Century Fox’s Gambit solo movie was originally scheduled to hit theaters over a year ago, but several starts and stops and a revolving door of directors kicked its release back to 2019. And since the movie has just found a director in Gore Verbinski, important casting decisions are happening: Lizzy Caplan, the star of movies like Cloverfield and TV shows like Masters of Sex, has been cast as the film’s female lead. But who is she playing?

X-Men Spiderman Movie Universe

A couple of weeks ago, we heard that The Walt Disney Company had conversations with 21st Century Fox about possibly buying some of their major assets, including the 20th Century Fox film studio and some Fox-owned TV networks like FX. Those talks ended up not going resulting in any deals, but now a new report says that Comcast and Sony have also had separate conversations about potentially acquiring 21st Century Fox’s assets, which would be depressing for a number of reasons.

But hey, while Hollywood as we know it enters into a possibly unrecoverable downward spiral, at least we might get to see some unexpected comic book movie crossovers! X-Men and Spider-Man in the same movie, anyone?

Justice League Zack Snyder cut

We’re now living in a post-Justice League world. After years in development and a troubled production that saw original director Zack Snyder step away due to a family tragedy and be replaced by Joss Whedon, the movie finally hit theaters this past Friday and pulled in $94 million at the box office. That’s a lot of money, but contextually, it’s a disappointment for WB executives; $94 million is the lowest opening weekend haul of any movie in the DC cinematic universe thus far.

Many fans aren’t thrilled with the final product, and now a petition is circling that is begging WB to release a Justice League Zack Snyder cut on home video. We’ll take a quick look at that below, and also examine why Whedon’s writing credit contradicts a recent report about the extent of his involvement.
