Spike Lee and Jordan Peele - Black Klansman Movie

Director Spike Lee is one of the most prominent African-American filmmakers, making some of the most poignant and relevant films that are full of rich social commentary about class, racism and more. Meanwhile, Jordan Peele just started his directing career by bringing us the powerful horror thriller Get Out, rife with themes and metaphors about race, and a promising beginning to his future as a filmmaker. Now the two directors are teaming up for a new project that will surely have a to say about racism in America.

Spike Lee and Jordan Peele will collaborate on a new project called Black Klansman, which will tell the true story of a black police officer who managed to somehow infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan in the late 1970s. The Black Klansman movie at Focus Features even has a promising new talent in talks to take the lead role. Read More »

atomic blonde review

Note: This review originally ran following the world premiere of Atomic Blonde at the SXSW Film Festival. It is in theaters today.

In a nutshell: Atomic Blonde is about a badass, bisexual British secret agent who fights like John Wick and seduces like James Bond who travels to Germany days before the fall of the Berlin Wall to recover some stolen intelligence. She wears a number of amazing outfits, kills a whole bunch of bad guys, and just looks terrific as she struts through noisy nightclubs and desolate alleyways to a soundtrack of ’80s synth pop. It is excellent, two-fisted entertainment and further proof that Charlize Theron is one of our great modern action heroes.

In a smaller nutshell: Atomic Blonde is one of the most purely entertaining action movies coming out this year.

the darkest hour

Gary Oldman has never been the kind of actor to go hunting for an Oscar, but Darkest Hour feels like the kind of movie that could thrust the always-brilliant actor into the awards spotlight in a big way. Vanishing under a pile of prosthetics to play Winston Churchill, the Prime Minister of Great Britain who led his nation into and through World War II, Oldman seems to be attempting a role unlike anything he has tried before.

We get our first taste of his performance in the first Darkest Hour trailer, which has just arrived.

Atomic Blonde Featurette

There was a time when saying that someone “fights like a girl” was considered an insult. Thankfully, that’s become something that doesn’t really sound all that lame anymore, especially when you have a superhero like Wonder Woman cleaning up at the box office. Adding to the power behind female punches will be a new action flick starring Mad Max: Fury Road‘s badass Charlize Theron.

Atomic Blonde stars Charlize Theron as an assassin working for MI6 who is stuck dealing with a city of traitors and killers trying to bump her off at every turn. She’s being hailed as the female 007, and if the trailers are any indicator, this movie will be even more kick-ass than the last mission James Bond went on in Spectre. Now, a new featurette takes a closer look at the action in the flick, showing us just how much of the fighting Charlize Theron is doing herself. Read More »

the beguiled trailer

With The Beguiled, Sofia Coppola has made her first adaptation and remake. The filmmaker’s retelling has little in common with Don Siegel’s 1971 film, though. Coppola was more interested in adapting Thomas P. Cullinan‘s A Painted Veil than remaking Siegel’s movie, which features a drastically different depiction of the all-girls school, led by Miss Martha (Nicole Kidman), and their guest, the soldier (Colin Farrell).

Coppola’s compassion as a filmmaker brings out different themes and ideas from Cullinan’s story. The characters feel more real, which makes the few sinister turns in The Beguiled more visceral. There’s the beauty we expect from Coppola, but she also brings fear and terror. The filmmaker behind The Virgin SuicidesLost in Translation, and The Bling Ring recently told us about crafting her southern gothic film during a brief conversation.

Below, check out our Sofia Coppola interview.
