assassin's creed images

Despite the best intentions of everyone involved, Warcraft failed to break the dreaded video game movie curse a few months ago. Still, there’s something to be said for a video game adaptation being an interesting and well-intentioned failure and not a raging garbage fire, as is often the default with this kind of movie. But with Warcraft disappearing into the horizon behind us, we must look forward to the next  movie that will hopefully change the fortunes of the video game adaptation: Assassin’s Creed.

Honestly, it could go either way. Will a gallery of new images showcasing star Michael Fassbender in character change any minds? Probably not, even though it will remind you that a wacky science fiction/historical adventure from the director of 2015’s Macbeth exists and is out in just a few months.

Fifty Shades Darker Trailer

Yesterday, Universal released a 20-second teaser for the Fifty Shades Darker trailer. Now, you can watch the full trailer, which features “Crazy in Love” performed by Miguel, fine supporting actors you hardly see any of, and plenty of more drama between Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan). It’s, for the most part, what’s expected for a trailer for the sequel to the hit 2015 film.

Below, watch the Fifty Shades Darker trailer.

gerald's game movie

Ladies and gentlemen: welcome to the Stephen King movie renaissance. With The Dark Tower arriving early next year, It nearing the end of principal photography, and a new version of The Stand continuously waiting in the wings, we’re about to be beset on all sides by cinematic adaptations of King’s most acclaimed work. And then there is the film version of Gerald’s Game that Oculus and Hush director Mike Flanagan has been wanting to make since 2014, which would bring one of the author’s less famous books to the screen. Unlike those other books, which are ultimately built around characters on straightforward quests that see them come face-to-face with evil, this novel is a tough nut to crack – it’s set entirely in one room and centers around a single character who must escape an agonizing (and adults only) predicament.

Gerald’s Game is the kind of horror movie that would have a hard time getting made by a traditional studio and released into a couple thousand theaters. So the news that it may go directly to Netflix makes perfect sense.

Dune remake

Director Denis Villeneuve recently helmed his first science-fiction film Arrival. The Sicario director’s latest is already generating some great buzz, and our own Angie Han called it “brainy sci-fi with a big, bloody, beating heart.” Before that sci-fi drama even reaches theaters, Villeneuve has started shooting Blade Runner 2. The filmmaker is already considering other science-fiction projects as well, and if he had his druthers, one of them would be Dune. Below, read Villeneuve’s comments on a Dune remake.

harry potter movie sequel

The Harry Potter books and film series may be over, but J.K. Rowling‘s Wizarding World continues to live on. There are the short stories and essays published on Pottermore. There is the upcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which explores this familiar universe in a different time and place. And then there is Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the ambitious stage play sequel to the original series currently dominating the London theater scene that Warner Bros. says won’t get a film adaptation anytime soon (but go ahead and ask them again in ten years).

So when someone asks film series star, Daniel Radcliffe, if he’d be willing to reprise his role as Harry Potter for a new movie, it’s all theoretical. But let’s face it – chances are strong you’re curious about what he says. It’s okay. You’re only human, and a Muggle at that.

A Monster Calls review

J.A. Bayona‘s adaptation of Patrick NessA Monster Calls is a five-hankie sobfest, a ruthlessly effective tearjerker even by cancer drama standards. The sniffles start with the premise. A boy (Lewis MacDougall) struggles with his mother’s terminal illness, and calls upon a giant tree monster for help. The monster (voiced by Liam Neeson) forces a deal upon the boy: he’ll tell three stories, after which the boy will have to reveal his own deepest, darkest secret.

Nocturnal Animals posters

Fashion extraordinaire Tom Ford‘s second feature film is finally coming out. Ford made his directorial debut six years ago with A Single Man, a beautiful and often painful film about love and loss, and now he’s back with a very different type of movie. His latest, Nocturnal Animals, sounds like a real trip, almost like two films in one that, according to critics, calls to mind the works of Douglas SirkAlfred Hitchcock, and Sam Peckinpah. Those are some lofty comparisons. Based on the early reviews, though, Tom Ford earns them.

Below, check out some posters, photos, and early buzz for Nocturnal Animals.
