happy anniversary trailer

It’s a phrase on billions of greeting cards, exchanged between millions of couples who may or may not mean it. “Happy anniversary.” Now it’s the title of a Netflix romantic-comedy starring Ben Schwartz and Noël Wells. But the story of a couple who grapple with their relationship on the day of their third anniversary may be more suited to tragicomedy.

ready player one title theme

Alan Silvestri was behind the theme for one of the most iconic ’80s films of all time, so it’s fitting that he would be recruited to compose the Ready Player One title theme.

The composer of Back to the Future and Who Framed Roger Rabbit has teamed up with Steven Spielberg to score the director’s adaptation of Ernest Cline‘s love letter to 1980s pop culture, Ready Player One. And you can listen to it right now.

Where’s Hawkeye?

It’s the resounding question that Avengers: Infinity War fans are asking as the new trailer and poster for the Marvel Studios film takes the internet by storm. Why is Hawkeye — a founding member of the Avengers and a fellow fugitive on the run with Captain America and Black Widow — nowhere to be seen?

Maybe he’s busy playing house with his wife, played by Linda Cardellini, and their kids. Maybe Jeremy Renner decided to rejoin the Mission: Impossible franchise after all (hah, nope). Maybe something dire happened to him. There’s a reasonable explanation for everything, and Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo have one for Hawkeye. Don’t worry, Infinity War has in something in store for our favorite bow-slinging Avenger.

mcu marathon

Update: AMC Theatres has announced that the Marvel marathon will include 12 Marvel Cinematic Universe films and be held in two locations. More information is included below.

AMC’s MCU marathon is back. And it’s 31 hours long.

The movie theater chain first introduced the insane endeavor in 2012 ahead of the release of The Avengers. But that 12-hour marathon would soon increase to 28 hours with Avengers: Age of Ultron. Both Marvel marathons cost the lives of no one and the sanity of many, but they seem like cake walks compared to the 31-hour monstrosity that AMC is holding ahead of Avengers: Infinity War. Because in the three years since the last marathon, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has swelled to 18 (!) movies. At least this marathon doesn’t include the TV shows.

Barry Jenkins Best Picture Speech

It usually feels like a miracle when an Oscar winner gives a short and sweet acceptance speech. Hell, long Oscar acceptance speeches have become such a staple that 2018 Academy Awards host Jimmy Kimmel even created a whole new category for shortest acceptance speech. (Congratulations Mark Bridges.)

But there was one speech that we wish we could have heard more of: Barry Jenkins Best Picture speech that the director would have given after Moonlight‘s astonishing win at the 2017 Oscars. But we all know what happened that year. A fumbled envelope, an award incorrectly given to La La Land, the celebrity reaction picture of the century. Unfortunately, that insane mistake would end up overshadowing Moonlight‘s very important win, and a speech that would have had us all weeping. But now, you can finally hear the speech that Barry Jenkins meant to give.
