Battle of the Sexes Clips

Awards season is just around the corner, and soon the movies that will be vying for Academy Awards, Golden Globes and more will begin hitting theaters, trying to drum up acclaim and praise. One of the earlier films out of the gate that already has awards buzz from its debut on the festival circuit recently is a real life sports drama starring Steve Carell and Emma Stone.

Battle of the Sexes tells the story of the highly publicized tennis match between Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) in 1973, a tennis match that pitted man versus woman and made waves for equality between the sexes. You can get a better glimpse at the true story in a batch of new footage that has arrived in a couple TV spots, clips and a featurette.

guillermo del toro projects shape of water

Guillermo del Toro has a tendency to juggle several passion projects before some of them make it to the theater after an excruciating wait, and others fall by the wayside. (RIP Hellboy 3.)

But with his newest film The Shape of Water receiving rave reviews at the Venice Film Festival this week and coming to theaters later this year, the Mexican auteur can finally turn his eyes to his next dark fairy tale: Pinocchio.

super troopers 2 release date

Super Troopers 2 has been a long time coming. Over a decade ago, though, there was already talk of more Super Troopers. Five years ago, Broken Lizard had a completed script and were ready to go. Director Jay Chandrasekhar even considered a prequel set in the ’70s about the troopers’ fathers patrolling the highway. In 2009, Broken Lizard decided to make a sequel instead, and that long-awaited sequel is finally coming out next spring…on a day that is very, very appropriate.

Below, find out the Super Troopers 2 release date.

The Shape of Water Photos

Guillermo del Toro has created some terrifying human beings in his movies. Michael Shannon plays his next antagonist and I can imagine del Toro turning him into one truly terrifying presence in his fairy tale. The trailer already has me fearing what he might do to Michael Stuhlbarg, who after his fantastic performance in Fargo, I expect to be the recipient of more pain and suffering. Shannon’s character, Strickland (a strong villain name if there ever was one), is probably more interested in harming the fish-man (Doug Jones) he has trapped.

Below, check out Strickland, the fish-man, and more in some new The Shape of Waters photos.

Goodbye Christopher Robin Trailer

Following the end of World War I, the globe was in a state of recovery, looking for hope wherever they could find it. That’s where author A.A. Milne comes in as his creation of the honey-loving bear called Winnie the Pooh became a literary phenomenon and gave the world the pick-me-up it needed to endure.

Goodbye Christopher Robin recounts how author A.A. Milne was inspired by his son, whose real name was Christopher Robin, to write this story, influenced by the child’s imagination and his signature stuffed animals that just so happened to include a bear, a little pig, a donkey and a tiger. But once Winnie the Pooh becomes a global sensation, it has a more devastating impact on the family than you might think.

Tolkien, the architect of Middle-earth and the author of beloved novels like The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, both of which were famously adapted into live-action film trilogies, will provide the source material for yet another movie.

These days, it feels like there are facets of the world at war at all times and we just accept this as the way things are.

But one man came up with a story that gave hope to a nation torn apart by World War I.

Goodbye Christopher Robin tells the story of children’s author A. A. Milne and how his son Christopher Robin helped inspire the classic children’s character Winnie the Pooh and all his adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood. Now the first trailer has arrived to show us how this heartwarming true story is coming to life.
