kidnap trailer

I don’t know about you people, but I’m ready for the Halle Berry career renaissance. I think that we, as a symbolic nation of movie fans, are ready to completely forget about the likes of Catwoman and Die Another Day and Gothika and Things We Lost in the Fire and embrace a second wind. She’s a fine actress, a more-than-capable screen presence, and when it comes to more recent Berry performances, more people should talk about her brave and bonkers work in the brave and bonkers Cloud Atlas.

In any case, she appears to be carving out a new niche as the star of lower-budgeted thrillers. 2013’s The Call was a modest hit and Kidnap looks to be cut out of similar cloth.

‘Jumanji’ Is A Sequel, Not a Reboot

Jumanji Sequel

Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart have been confirmed to star in a new take on Jumanji at Sony Pictures for a little while now. Also, the Central Intelligence duo will be joined by Jack Black, as well as Nick Jonas supposedly continuing to broaden his acting career with a role as well. Now as the film moves closer to starting production, a new detail has emerged that changes our perspective of the movie a little bit.

According to a recent social media update by Dwayne Johnson, the new Jumanji isn’t a reboot, and it might be more of a legacy-quel instead. Get the details below. Read More »

Mission: Impossible 6 delay

Ethan Hunt’s next death-defying adventure has hit a bit of a speed bump. Paramount Pictures has reportedly pumped the brakes on Mission: Impossible 6, which has Tom Cruise returning to star and Chris McQuarrie back to direct. But there’s no need to panic yet: shooting isn’t even underway on the film, and there’s a good chance both sides will work something out before the entire thing has to be pushed back.  Read More »

After being absent from the big screen for 13 years, Detective Mike Lowery (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) were initially scheduled to return next June. Unfortunately, last week we heard Sony had pushed Bad Boys For Life to 2018. The reason for the delay?

The Avengers: Infinity War

Marvel Studios had initially announced that they would be making the third and fourth installments of The Avengers series back to back, under the guise of a two-film epic event titled The Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2. But recently Disney changed the title of the first film to The Avengers: Infinity War, while the second is now untitled.

Kubo and the Two Strings Travis Knight interview

With Kubo and the Two Strings, the CEO & President of Laika, Travis Knight, makes his feature directorial debut. Knight’s 3D stop-motion / CG hybrid follows a brave young hero named Kubo (Art Parkinson), as he goes on an epic quest to retrieve what’s needed to defeat Raiden the Moon King (Ralph Fiennes). Along for the samurai’s emotional adventure are Monkey (Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Matthew McConaughey).

The Japan-set film’s style was inspired by ink wash paintings, Noh theater, and period doll making. One of the biggest influences for Knight, besides the famous woodblock painter Kiyoshi Saito, was ukiyo-e (translation: pictures of the floating world). The director was most drawn to the work of Hokusai and Hiroshige, and the former’s “Great Wave off Kanagawa” clearly inspired the film’s opening sequence, which we talked about with Knight.

During our time with the filmmaker, we discussed the work Laika put into crafting some of Kubo and the Two Strings most visually stunning sequences, in addition to why they’ll never make sequels. Below, read our Travis Knight interview.

James Bond Credits Metaphors

It’s no secret that James Bond is a a super misogynistic character. He’s a womanizing spy in every single one of his big screen adventures, and even Daniel Craig has pointed this very fact out before. When asked what we can learn from James Bond, Craig quite bluntly said, “Nothing. Let’s not forget that he’s actually a misogynist. A lot of women are drawn to him chiefly because he embodies a certain kind of danger and never sticks around for too long.”

That’s something that’s never been subtle in the James Bond franchise as everyone expects him to make a double entendre about sex while speaking to any of the Bond girls hired for a particular movie. Even the opening credits sequences are full of visuals that serve as not-so-subtle metaphors for sex, as one video hilariously lays out in the most obvious way after the jump. Read More »
