alpha trailer

Up until last year, Alpha was being billed as a gritty, survivalist tale about a young, lost hunter who befriends an injured wolf. And from the looks of the first trailer, that’s all it would be — with a heartwarming tale of the first boy and his dog embedded within, of course. But after the prehistoric drama starring Kodi Smit-McPhee got pushed back to the summer, it seems like Sony has flipped the marketing entirely in the latest trailer.

the handmaid's tale smart power review

(We’re going to kickstart our weekly The Handmaid’s Tale review by answering one simple question: Who suffered the most?)

A grenade went off in Gilead, and we waited for something to change. And waited. But The Handmaid’s Tale loves the status quo too much, and everything sprung back into place — except in the smaller, quieter moments of rebellion among the women in crisis. But this week in “Smart Power,” a new grenade was launched, in the form of anonymous letters that first appeared all the way back in Season 1. And this time, something may explode.

the good lord bird

In the era of the flashy McConaissance and the Keanussance, second acts are all the rage in Hollywood. But while no one has dubbed Ethan Hawke one of these Renaissance Men, Hawke has been quietly building one of the most interesting second acts in Hollywood.

After a brief brush with leading man roles in the ’90s and early 2000s, Hawke settled into a career of indie films aided by his inextricable connection to Richard Linklater’s Before trilogy. Then came a curious pivot to horror. In 2012, Hawke starred in the Blumhouse production Sinister, a critically acclaimed SXSW favorite that would help aid Blumhouse’s rise from low-budget indie studio to today’s go-to horror company. Now, Hawke is teaming up with Blumhouse again, but this time for a small-screen adaptation of The Good Lord Bird.

dumbo trailer

When the first strains of the haunting “Baby Mine” float over the first trailer of the live-action Dumbo, you know you’re in for some emotional damage. The animated movie that traumatized you as a kid is now a live-action film, adapted by Gothic connoisseur Tim Burton, no less.

bohemian rhapsody director

When the Bohemian Rhapsody trailer dropped, the internet couldn’t help but notice that the trailer was missing one important thing: the director’s name. Well, maybe two things. But regardless, it was a little odd to leave out the name of the director, especially when the trailer for the Queen/Freddie Mercury biopic proudly boasted that the film came “from 20th Century Fox and Regency Enterprises.”

Could it be that there was some contention as to whose name should go on the billing after original director Bryan Singer left partway through production and was replaced by Dexter Fletcher? Perhaps at the time — but now those issues are resolved. Singer will reportedly retain his title as the director of Bohemian Rhapsody.
