Disney Suing Redbox

The Walt Disney Company hasn’t exactly been making the most level-headed decisions lately, but here’s something I think they have a right to be a little miffed about. The company has filed a lawsuit to halt Redbox from selling digital download codes for Disney movies in its kiosks across the country. Does Redbox stand a chance of winning this? Find out more about Disney suing Redbox below.

The Shape of Water black and white

Guillermo del Toro‘s fantasy romance The Shape of Water opens in limited release this weekend, and this story of a mute woman falling in love with a fish man is full of lush, vibrant colors, gorgeous aquatic hues, and the level of visual splendor for which del Toro is best known. But we nearly saw an entirely different version of the movie: according to the film’s production designer, del Toro originally pitched The Shape of Water as a black and white film.

most rented redbox movies

Movie theaters may be losing audiences at an alarming rate, and the streaming service field may be increasingly cluttered, but at least we’ll always have home video, right? Right…?

Renting a physical DVD or Blu-ray of your favorite movie still hasn’t lost its magic, even when the renting process shifted from your local rental store (RIP) to the bright red kiosk that populates every superstore or drug store. And while Blockbuster and local video stores were put out of business long ago, Redbox has stuck around, handling a vast percentage of physical movie rentals. In honor of its 15 anniversary this year, Redbox has released its top 15 movie rentals. And this list is…erm…a bit disappointing.

Black Mirror season 4 trailers

In addition to being one of the most gorgeously shot shows on television, Charlie Brooker‘s science fiction anthology series Black Mirror is also one of the most disturbing: its episodes are often punishingly bleak, bringing its audience to the brink of despair while offering searing commentary on our relationship with (and dependence on) technology. But while it’s not exactly “feel-good” TV, it’s also a really good show that manages to attract some of the world’s most talented filmmakers and actors to work on it.

So while part of me sort of dreads the idea of watching more, I know it’ll be worth it. It always is. And it won’t be long before new episodes will be upon us. Two new Black Mirror season 4 trailers have arrived, and you can watch them below.

Justice League Zack Snyder cut

We’re now living in a post-Justice League world. After years in development and a troubled production that saw original director Zack Snyder step away due to a family tragedy and be replaced by Joss Whedon, the movie finally hit theaters this past Friday and pulled in $94 million at the box office. That’s a lot of money, but contextually, it’s a disappointment for WB executives; $94 million is the lowest opening weekend haul of any movie in the DC cinematic universe thus far.

Many fans aren’t thrilled with the final product, and now a petition is circling that is begging WB to release a Justice League Zack Snyder cut on home video. We’ll take a quick look at that below, and also examine why Whedon’s writing credit contradicts a recent report about the extent of his involvement.
