One of our favorite movies at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival back in January was Sing Street from director John Carney. In my review from the festival, yours truly called the movie “marvelous, delightful and just plain great.” You’ve probably already seen the trailer for this flick that comes straight from the heart of the 1980s and all the pop rock that comes with that decade, but now a new clip has debuted showing us just how great the teen band at the center of the film truly is, even if they’re a bit clumsy shooting the music video for “The Riddle of the Model,” their first single.

Another Red Sonja adaptation has been stuck in development hell for years. Plenty of talent has boarded and fallen off the project. Years ago a version starring Rose McGowan and produced by Robert Rodriguez came very close to happening, but it never came to fruition. After years of waiting, director Bryan Singer might be the one to bring this character back to life.
Learn more about the rumored Red Sonja television series below.

Once a movie takes Sundance by storm, the wait begins for its theatrical release. Sometimes there’s hardly a wait at all; this year’s documentary Jim: The James Foley Story premiered on HBO a mere two weeks after its Sundance bow. And sometimes that wait is so long it actually laps the following Sundance: The Witch, in theaters now, debuted over a year ago at Sundance 2015.
Fortunately for fans of ’80s music, Irish accents, coming-of-age stories, and/or joy, The Weinstein Company isn’t dragging its feet on Sing Street. The upbeat musical from John Carney (of Once and Begin Again) emerged as one of the biggest crowdpleasers of this year’s festival, and now it’s going to sing and dance its way into the hearts of general audiences this spring.

Even though The Hateful Eight is nearly gone from theaters after being released a month ago, there’s really no bad time to hear what movies are good to watch before you see Quentin Tarantino‘s latest, violent Western.

So if you happened to miss it the first time around, you have ample time to check out these movies before then. Plus, this video laying them all out includes commentary on each from Tarantino himself. Find out below. Read More »
Originally scheduled to open last summer, Alejandro Amenábar‘s (The Others) thriller was pushed back to this February. The film, which stars Ethan Hawke and Emma Watson, was a promising return to horror for Amenábar — but sadly, it’s been met with an overwhelmingly negative response from critics.
Regression opens in theaters this week, and The Weinstein Company has just released another trailer for the film.

If you saw The Hateful Eight and thought to yourself, “I’d love to recreate this whole bloody mess with a series of action figures,” then we have the best news possible. NECA is coming out with a line of action figures for each of the titular characters in The Hateful Eight, and they’re some delightfully retro designs. Get a closer look at each of The Hateful Eight figures after the jump! Read More »
It’s no secret Quentin Tarantino‘s films tie together. Forget Red Apple cigarettes, because the connections go deeper than that. Some of the writer-director’s characters are related, some have possibly crossed paths with one another, and some, according to Tarantino, have even watched each other at the movie theater.
After the jump, the Hateful Eight director discusses the Quentin Tarantino universe.

As it slowly limps out of theaters, Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight feels destined to go down as the director’s most divisive film. Critics and audiences were split. It made /Film’s top 10 of 2015 but won’t earn half of what Django Unchained grossed at the box office. The incredible roadshow presentation was marred by theaters unprepared to project 70mm film prints. Tarantino’s legacy may be secure, but the destiny of The Hateful Eight itself is a big question mark.
And this is the point where we have to wonder what Tarantino will take on next. With the notable exception of the long break he took between Jackie Brown and Kill Bill Vol. 1, the always-controversial filmmaker typically has had another movie ready to go two or three years after his previous release. Could his next movie be a gangster movie set in 1930s Australia? Because he’s talking about that now.

Watch the Sing Street trailer after the jump.

Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight is now in theaters. While the film has been a tad divisive amongst the filmmaker’s fans and critics, both Jacob Hall and I absolutely adore the film. In fact, I’m seeing it for a third time tonight, and I can’t wait to once again unravel Tarantino’s rewarding narrative. It’s simply great storytelling, and as he’s stated before, it would work just as well on the stage. Now, he’s making the prospect of The Hateful Eight stage play sound more likely.
Read Tarantino’s future plans for the material after the jump.
