Atomic Blonde clip 2

Focus Features has deemed the next few months an “#AtomicSummer” in honor of their upcoming spy thriller Atomic Blonde, and I’m willing to overlook that cheesy name as long as it results in us getting a better look at the movie. They kicked things off with a glimpse at one of the film’s fight scenes, but their newly-released second clip slows things down a little and shows a different side of the spy game altogether, as Charlize Theron and Sofia Boutella’s characters flirt in a crowded bar.

Victoria and Abdul trailer

Has there been an actress who’s played more members of English royalty or upper class society than Dame Judi Dench? She has to be the first call casting directors make if they’re looking for someone to play a role like that, and over the course of her long career, she’ve proven adept at allowing bits of humanity to shine through the authoritative figures she often plays.

Now she’s suiting up as England’s Queen Victoria for a new film called Victoria & Abdul, in which she forms an unconventional alliance with an Indian servant played by Ali Fazal. Check out the trailer and poster, and learn why this is strangely familiar territory for Dench below.

Beguiled trailer

Sofia Coppola‘s The Beguiled is a change of pace for the filmmaker. Her remake of Don Siegel‘s 1971 film, or re-adaptation of Thomas P. Cullinan‘s “A Painted Devil,” is a gothic thriller with a life on the line, not the sparse character piece we’re accustomed to seeing from Coppola. Naturally, we’re excited to how the writer-director behind Lost in Translation and The Virgin Suicides works with a story dripping with tension.

Below, watch The Beguiled trailer.

atomic blonde trailer

If Charlize Theron‘s current goal is to firmly establish herself in the action movie pantheon, she’s doing one helluva job. She was already there thanks to her work in Mad Max: Fury Road (and playing a villain in The Fate of the Furious certainly helps), but there’s probably no faster way to action immortality than teaming up with one of the co-directors of John Wick.

Enter Atomic Blonde, the new film from David Leitch, which finds Theron playing a spy sent on a deadly mission to Berlin during the Cold War, where she has to, you know, kill everyone.

Paul Thomas Anderson Daniel Day-Lewis Movie

Last month, we got word that Paul Thomas Anderson had begun shooting his latest movie, a fashion drama set in 1950s London that will reteam the director with his There Will Be Blood star Daniel Day-Lewis. The details we have on the movie are still pretty sparse, but the good news is we know when we’ll get to see it since the release date was announced this week at CinemaCon.

atomic blonde trailer

In Mad Max: Fury Road, Charlize Theron created one of the greatest action heroines of all time with Imperator Furiosa. So, no pressure on secret agent Lorraine Broughton, her character in the new Cold War spy thriller Atomic Blonde. However, if Theron is going to create another truly great cinematic badass, teaming up with one of the minds behind John Wick is a great start.

The first Atomic Blonde trailer has arrived ahead of its debut at the SXSW Film Festival this weekend and you can watch it below.

the beguiled trailer

It’s hard to imagine two filmmakers more different than Sofia Coppola and Don Siegel, but now the two of them have something in common: they have both made film adaptations of Thomas P. Cullinan‘s 1966 Southern gothic novel A Painted Devil titled The Beguiled. Siegel’s 1971 version was his third collaboration with star Clint Eastwood (Dirty Harry would arrive the same year); Coppola’s 2017 version marks her third collaboration with star Kirsten Dunst.

In other words, it’s going to be fun to watch these two movies back-to-back and discover how two vastly different storytellers tackle the same material. We can get the ball rolling a little early by watching the trailer for Coppola’s remake (or is it re-adaptation?).

new paul thomas anderson movie

UPDATE: Focus Features has officially announced the start of production on Paul Thomas Anderson’s untitled movie and their press release includes this plot description: “The new movie is a drama set in the couture world of 1950s London. The story illuminates the life behind the curtain of an uncompromising dressmaker commissioned by royalty and high society.” There is no release date, but the film will be released later this year. The original article follows below.

We don’t even know the title of Paul Thomas Anderson‘s new movie and it already feels like an event. First of all, it’s a Paul Thomas Anderson movie and any time the director of Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and The Master decides to make a new movie, it’s time to celebrate. Second of all, this film will reunite him with the infamously picky and famously masterful Daniel Day-Lewis, who hasn’t made a movie since winning his third Oscar for 2012’s Lincoln. Either of these by themselves would be a reason to keep this one on your radar, but a full-fledged There Will Be Blood reunion makes this one of the most exciting projects to come together since…well, There Will Be Blood.

The first photos from the set have arrived and while they don’t shed too much light on this mysterious project, they do reveal Day-Lewis and Anderson one again sharing the same space and that is enticing enough.

Garance Marillier in Raw

Saying that a movie is one of the best of the entire year when it’s only January may seems downright foolish. Irresponsible, even. But if Raw had come out in 2016, it would have made my top 10 of the year and would have made an already great year for horror movies even better. I loved writer/director Julia Ducournau‘s new coming-of-age cannibalism movie when I saw it at Fantastic Fest last year and I’m already eager to see it again. Movies about people eating other people aren’t supposed to be this honest, heartbreaking, and in-tune with the anxieties that accompany leaving home for the first time, but here we are.

A new clip from the film has arrived and you should watch it! And then you should actually go see the movie so we’ll have something to talk about.
