Don't Breathe

I can’t remember the last time I watched a movie like Fede Alvarez’s Don’t Breathe.

Don’t Breathe is a film in which I was so tense, I felt sore afterwards from how on edge I was. Don’t Breathe is a movie where the audience was so engrossed for the duration that I barely heard them make a peep or shift in their seats. Don’t Breathe is one of those movies whose jump scares actually make you physically jump and make embarrassing exclamations out loud in a theater full of strangers (the only other movie experience that even comes close this year is Jeremy Saulnier’s Green Room).

Check out my video review of Don’t Breathe below and feel free to share your thoughts on the film below.

Stranger Things - Shannon Purser as Barb

UPDATE: Funko has released another hypothetical POP! Vinyl figure, this time giving a fan favorite character their own figure. You can check it out after the jump. Our original story follows.

Funko has turned any and nearly every kind of character from pop culture into one of the POP! Vinyl figures. Disney, Star Wars, Batman, Ghostbusters, Family Guy, The Avengers, Gremlins, Futurama and tons more movies and TV shows have had their characters turned into the adorable little doe-eyed collectibles. Basically, anything popular gets the Funko treatment, so you would think Stranger Things would be next right? That’s what we’re hoping, and it appears Funko got a head start on their collection by creating a POP! Vinyl sculpt of the telekinetic girl known as Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown.

James and the Giant Peach Remake

Director Sam Mendes may be done with James Bond, but now he’s in early talks to take on another familiar James from the pages of literature.

The Skyfall and Spectre director is currently negotiating with Disney to develop and direct a new live-action take on James and the Giant Peach, based on the book of the same name by Roald Dahl, which was previously turned into a stop-motion animated film by The Nightmare Before Christmas director Henry Selick in 1996. It’s just one more live-action remake from the animation vaults of Disney. Read More »

Corey Stoll in The Strain Season 3 / The Strain Chuck Hogan and Carlton Cuse Interview

There were three books in The Strain series by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. The FX TV series will be five seasons and it is entering its third now. When season three begins, it has only been 23 days since the CDC quarantined New York City and discovered the vampire species the Strigoi, as the introduction to the season reminds us. Eph (Corey Stoll) is looking for his son while Fet (Kevin Durand) encounters some New Yorkers watching the authorities from the sidelines.

We spoke with Hogan and producer Carlton Cuse after their Television Critics Association panel for The Strain season three. Del Toro was not available this year as he is filming The Shape of Water, but he has supported the show with his attendance at two previous TCAs. The Strain returns Sunday, August 28 at 10PM on FX.  Read More »

Dan Gilroy Denzel Washington project

Has anyone else been anxiously awaiting the news of Dan Gilroy‘s sophomore effort as a filmmaker? The screenwriter, who wrote Two for the Money and worked on the script for Tarsem’s The Fall, made his directorial debut with Nightcrawler, a darkly funny thriller that feels made by an old pro behind the camera. After the critical and financial success of his first feature, there was no immediate news about a follow-up project, but he may next direct Inner City, a drama possibly starring Denzel Washington.

Below, learn more about the potential Dan Gilroy Denzel Washington project.

Star Wars Episode VIII Title

Production is wrapped on Star Wars: Episode VIII, and with post-production underway, John Williams will begin his work on the film’s score imminently. So far details have been pretty sparse on information about the sequel, which is exactly what we all expected. However, some fans have been hoping that we would get an official title for the movie sooner than later. But according to Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley, we may be waiting a while longer.

My Blind Brother trailer

NBC’s Parks and Recreation ended at the exact right time, but that doesn’t mean we don’t miss it now that it’s gone. So if you’re still in mourning, you may find some comfort in the new trailer for My Blind Brother. Sophie Goodhart‘s indie drama stars not one, not two, but three former Pawneeans caught in a love triangle. Nick Kroll, the former Douche, gets to play the nice guy this time, while Adam Scott steps up as the douchey one. The two guys play brothers after the same woman, played by Jenny Slate. Watch the My Blind Brother trailer after the jump.

Lion trailer

Producer Harvey Weinstein sees awards potential in Lion, one of the two contenders he’s betting on this fall. The other awards hopeful film coming from TWC, in Harvey Weinstein’s eyes, is The Founder, based on the life of Ray Kroc. While that biopic is about a man driven by greed, Lion is a more kind-hearted and inspiring tale, about a man (Dev Patel) searching for his family.

Below, watch the Lion trailer.

First Girl I Loved trailer

Most people got to known Brianna Hildebrand for the very first time through her scene-stealing performance as Negasonic Teenage Warhead in Deadpool. But if you were at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, you might have seen her a bit earlier. Hildebrand hit the festival with First Girl I Loved, a tender coming-of-age drama directed by Kerem Sanga (The Young Kieslowski). Hildebrand and Dylan Gelula (best known as Xan on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) play two high school classmates who fall in love, but find their relationship threatened by forces internal and external.

While I did catch the film at Sundance, I didn’t have the opportunity to review this one myself, unfortunately. But pretty soon you’ll be able to judge it for yourself as it’s coming to theaters this fall. Check out the First Girl I Loved trailer below.
