A Monster Calls Promo

Now that we’re n October, we’re starting to get a look at some of the movies that will be key players in awards season. But plenty of heavy hitters won’t be arriving until this winter. One of those potential contenders is A Monster Calls. Funnily enough, the film from future Jurassic World 2 helmer J.A. Bayona was slated to arrive in theaters later this month, but after a huge critical reception out of the Toronto International Film Festival, Focus Features decided it was worthy of a more prime awards season release closer to Christmas.

Now a new A Monster Calls promo has arrived in honor of National Face Your Fears Day today, showing some of the beauty this film promises with the story of a young boy, his imaginary friend, and his dying mother, played by Felicity Jones. Read More »

Clint Eastwood Jessica Buchanan Project

Clint Eastwood recently added another hit to his resume with Sully. The well-received drama marks another successful collaboration between the director and the studio he calls home, Warner Bros. Pictures. Eastwood has made most of his movies at the studio, and that’s probably not changing anytime soon. Warner Bros. and the filmmaker are currently working on a film about Jessica Buchanan, an American aid worker who was kidnapped.

Below, learn more about the new Clint Eastwood project.

The Girl on the Train spoiler review

Paula HawkinsThe Girl on the Train is an incredibly entertaining and bleak page-turner. The deeply troubled characters are what make the novel exciting. The more pages turned, the more the characters reveal themselves, and usually in some pretty troubling, unnerving, or darkly enjoyable ways. Hawkins’ novel is arguably a better drama than it is a thriller, and the same could be said of Tate Taylor‘s adaptation. The Help director’s film is a sometimes-above-average thriller that thrives mostly on its performances.

Below, read our The Girl on the Train spoiler review.

HBO’s Westworld is quickly becoming my new obsession, a dense and complex science fiction tale that is full of wild ideas and chilling commentary that also manages to be…well, really, really fun to watch. It’s one thing to make a smart and scary show about the base nature of mankind, but it’s another thing altogether to also make it a surprisingly funny examination of interactive entertainment. And it’s yet another thing to set the whole think in a futuristic theme park themed as the old west and populated withe lifelike robots who may be on the verge of gaining self-awareness.

If you’re all caught up after last night’s episode, the preview for the third episode, titled “The Stray,” has arrived online.

Few hours of television have given me as much to think about and dwell over as “Chestnut,” the second episode of Westworld. No fancy introductions to this one. Let’s just dive right in.

westworld episode 2

The first season of HBO’s Westworld has barely even begun and we’re already starting to pretty obsessed with it here at /Film. In addition to my weekly spoiler reviews, our own Peter Sciretta has already done a deep dive on how the show’s futuristic theme park operates and has collected a batch of theories about what may be going on with this show’s dense and complex world. And while the show does invite you to pick apart its mysteries, it does so while also providing rich, unsettling, and thoughtful science fiction storytelling that touches on everything from art to entertainment to religion to the inherent cruelty of mankind. It’s good stuff.

And HBO has gone ahead and released the second episode a few days early.

American idiot Movie

A movie based on Green Day’s concept album, American Idiot, has been discussed for many years now. The band’s hit 2004 album was first adapted into a musical. The Broadway production, which Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong appeared in for about three months (playing St. Jimmy), won two Tony Awards and performed exceptionally well when Armstrong played the character. According to the frontman, he’ll reprise the role again soon, because HBO has greenlighted an American Idiot movie.

ape meets girl harry potter print

We;ve gotten a bunch of Harry Potter posters and art over the last couple decades, including official poster art from Drew Struzan and book art from Olly Moss. So it comes as no easy accomplishment when I declare that this is the best piece of Harry Potter art that I’ve ever seen. The Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone print was created by a UK artist Kevin M Wilson, who goes by the pseudonym Ape Meets Girl. We’ve featured his work many times in the past on /Film; you might remember his JawsBack to the FutureWALL-EPeter PanIncredibles prints of the official IMAX poster for 10 Cloverfield Lane. Hit the jump to check out the Ape Meets Girl Harry Potter print and variant in full and find out where and when you can get it.

valerian poster

Luc Besson‘s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets wasn’t on my radar until our own Peter Sciretta came back from Comic-Con this summer with many nice things to say about the first footage from the film. I run hot and cold with Besson (there are days where I think he’s a genius and there are days where I think his reach exceeds his grasp), but tell me that the guy who made The Fifth Element is making another science fiction action movie and I’ll just ask for a release date and clear my schedule.

A batch of new photos and a poster for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets have arrived online ahead of the film’s booth at the New York Comic-Con this week and they’re just wild enough to further hold my attention.
