Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 writer/director James Gunn is one of the most active big directors on social media. If you’re not following him on Twitter or Facebook, you should be. He regularly talks very honestly about his past and current projects as well as the filmmaking industry at large. Yesterday the filmmaker did a Question & Answer session on Facebook, which included some good bits of intormation which I think is worth highlighting. He talks about the collaboration process with other Marvel directors, future Marvel movies, how he had an oppurtunity to direct a DC movie, how Guardians Vol 2 improves over the first installment and much more.

In light of its 14 Emmy nominations, FX had a second Television Critics Association panel for The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story after introducing the show in January. Among the panelists were Joe Robert Cole, a screenwriter who wrote pivotal episodes five and eight, chronicling the jurors’ visit to the crime scene and their epic sequestration.
After the panel, FX had a cocktail reception with its talent and we got to speak with Cole one-on-one. Cole is currently at work on the Black Panther film screenplay with co-writer/director Ryan Coogler. Cole shared in-depth details about his O.J. Simpson juror research and was open to discussing his approach to Black Panther. Read More »
If there’s one thing we took away from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it’s that Kylo Ren has some serious anger management problems. Who knows just how many credits have been spent to repair control consoles in First Order Star Destroyers after he tears them apart with his lightsaber? And knowing how easy it is for Kylo Ren to get worked up, one has to wonder just how he would react to something like the new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer.
Now we don’t have to wonder any longer because some clever fans have just created a perfect video where Kylo Ren reacts to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘s new trailer that just debuted last week. That might sound silly (and believe me it is), but the fact that they have perfected the sound effects to replicate Kylo Ren’s voice makes it work extremely well. Or maybe they just have that Kylo Ren helmet with a voice emulator. Either way, just watch below! Read More »

There’s no shortage of violence in movies today. Whether it’s superheroes fighting each other, spies being betrayed by their superiors, sentient foods being eaten by people or even frustrated fowl, almost every movie has a little bit of violence. But when it comes to the movies of writer/director Shane Black, there’s probably a little more than usual. However, as a new video essay points out, there’s something special about how the director of The Nice Guys and the writer of Lethal Weapon uses violence in his films.

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we have the script flipped on us when it comes to found footage movies, debate other nerds about the quality of the Star Wars prequels, get that Transformers: The Movie title track by Lion stuck in our melons, bail on our life to make a new one, figure out a puzzling movie about I don’t know what, and get drunk on sake.
