george miller interview

George Miller is a fascinating man.

Decades before directing one of the best movies of 2015 and earning an Oscar nomination for his efforts, he was a doctor working in Sydney, Australia who practically stumbled into filmmaking with the original Mad Max. Between now and then, he’s written, produced and directed mainstream successes and cult favorites alike, experimenting in various mediums and never settling on a single genre. And in a new interview, he opens up about his life and career in a big way, talking about Mad Max: Fury Road and Babe and his canceled Justice League movie and his relationship with Stanley Kubrick and so much more.

‘Fast and Furious’ 9 and 10 Get Release Dates

Furious 7

Cars may come and go, but family is forever. And we do mean forever. With Fast 8 already set for 2017, Universal Pictures has just confirmed dates for the next two installments of the Fast and Furious saga. The newly announced movies bring us up to 10 Fast and Furious movies across 20 years. Not bad for a franchise that started out as a less-starry Gone in 60 Seconds and/or a cheesier Point Break ripoff.  Read More »

Spectre Honest Trailer

Though James Bond fans were excited to see what director Sam Mendes did with Spectre after knocking Skyfall out of the park back in 2012, plenty were disappointed when the film finally hit theaters last fall. While this writer didn’t find the film to be downright terrible, mostly enjoying the throwback elements of the story and villain being utilized, the film certainly lacked the kind of punch you hope to get from a 007 adventure.

Now, the Spectre Honest Trailer really sticks it to the movie, calling it “Bond-by-the-numbers,” which is pretty hard to argue with. Plus there’s a great reference to the Nintendo 64 video game Goldeneye. Read More »

gods of egypt trailer

On paper, Gods of Egypt sounds like a real treat – an old-school adventure movie that uses Egyptian mythology as stepping stone to showcase gnarly monsters and giant battles between immortal gods should be something any self-respecting fan of good things can get behind. But in trailer form, Gods of Egypt looks like a disaster. It also looked like a disaster when the second trailer arrived. And now, the third time is not the charm.

Still, there are noteworthy elements scattered throughout the wreckage of the new preview that are worthy of your time and attention, should you be interested in such things.

power rangers casts elizabeth banks

Let’s just get this out of the way right now: Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers was a bad show. You liked it when you were a kid and remain fond of it now because nostalgia is nice and comforting, but let’s not pretend it is anything worthy of adoration in 2016. You, as human being of sound body and mind capable of going online and reading an article, should look upon Lionsgate’s upcoming Power Rangers movie with a certain amount of dread. This is what it means to be an adult. This and taxes and horrible weddings you must attend out of social obligation. I’m sorry. But it’s true.

And yet, the news that Elizabeth Banks has been cast as the lead villain in director Dean Israelite‘s upcoming film somehow manages to speak volumes about what kind of movie they’re making. I’ll say this much: if you insist on making a Power Rangers movie, casting someone as delightful as Banks is a step in the right direction.

Pandemic trailer

There are plenty of movies set during various zombie apocalypses, but Pandemic pulls you right into the thick of the action with a first-person POV. Rachel Nichols plays a doctor who arrives in Los Angeles to stop the epidemic from taking over the entire world — though based on the conventions of the genre, I’m going to go ahead and guess that her efforts will prove ultimately futile. Mekhi PhiferAlfie AllenPat Healy, and Missi Pyle also star. Check out the first Pandemic trailer after the jump. Read More »

Noomi Rapace in Prometheus

Title notwithstanding, Alien: Covenant is a Prometheus sequel, and as such we’ve been expecting it to pick up where that earlier adventure left off. But it seems at least one major development will have taken place by the time we revisit that universe.

Director Ridley Scott confirms Noomi Rapace will not return as archaeologist Elizabeth Shaw, leaving Michael Fassbender‘s murderous android David the only character from the last film set to return. He’ll be joined by some new characters, though, including one played by Katherine WaterstonRead More »
