warcraft trailer

When I say that Warcraft looks like the John Carter or Jupiter Ascending of 2016, I say that as someone who unabashedly adores both of those films and finds their singular, off-kilter, and frequently oddball worlds fascinating, charming, and drunk on imagination. However, both of those films were too weird to attract mainstream audiences and died painful, ugly, public deaths at the box office. When I watch the new Warcraft trailer, I see so much that I like…and I can’t help but wonder if anyone other than me is fully prepared to give this wacky-looking movie a big ‘ol bear hug.

Jackie Earle Haley in Watchmen

If you’re the kind of person who adores comic book shows and fantasy movies — and judging by the fact that you’re on /Film, we’re guessing you are — prepare to see a lot of Jackie Earle Haley over the next couple of years. Not only is he set to star in AMC’s Preacher, he’s just snapped up roles in Amazon’s The Tick and Nikolaj Arcel‘s Stephen King adaptation The Dark Tower. Not surprisingly, given his knack for playing colorful and creepy characters, he’ll be playing villains in all of them.  Read More »

magic castle

A film about Magic Castle has been in the works for a few years now. For those of you unfamiliar with the private club in Hollywood, it hosts magicians and their guests, and it’s also the headquarters of the Academy of Magic Arts Inc. The mansion, which is on Franklin Avenue, was most recently featured in an episode of Netflix’s Love, “Do You Believe in Magic?”, if you want to get a better look at the place.

The Magic Castle movie has now gained a little momentum, with the help of Ridley Scott‘s Scott Free Productions. Learn more about the project below.

dark tower movie filming

After years of false stars and ambitious franchise plans that never came to fruition and a revolving door of talent that saw the likes of Ron Howard and Javier Bardem board the project and exit, the film adaptation of The Dark Tower has finally begun filming under director Nikolaj Arcel. As a fan of Stephen King‘s magnum opus book series, a wild combination of science fiction, horror, and fantasy that unites all of his work in one universe, I will be watching this production closely, eyebrow ready to rise at a moment’s notice. To paraphrase Roland the Gunslinger: I do not prematurely criticize with my laptop; he who prematurely criticizes with his laptop has forgotten the face of his father. I prematurely criticize with my heart.

Peter Pan

When Disney first announced that its Pete’s Dragon reboot would be directed by David Lowery, he seemed like an out-of-left-field choice. Lowery was an indie darling known for directing the Malickian crime romance Ain’t Them Bodies Saints and editing Shane Carruth’s trippy Upstream Color; a mainstream family film for Disney seemed about as far from his wheelhouse as a movie could get.

But that unexpected partnership must’ve worked out just fine, because both sides are already gearing up to reunite on another new project. Lowery has been set to direct a live-action reboot of Peter Pan, from a script by his frequent collaborator (and Pete’s Dragon screenwriter) Toby HalbrooksRead More »

A Monster Calls teaser trailer

There are no shortage of monsters on the big screen this year, whether they be mutants or ghosts or dragons or other mythical creatures. But not all monsters are out to terrorize people. Some of them appear because they’ve been summoned by sad little boys desperately in need. In Juan Antonio Bayona‘s A Monster Calls, Conor O’Malley (Lewis MacDougall) struggles with bullies at school and his mother’s illness at home. At night he’s visited by a monster in the form of a towering tree (Liam Neeson).

Although A Monster Calls has elements of fantasy and adventure, the real core of the story is Conor’s attempts to cope with the kind of outsized emotions that even adults are ill-equipped to handle: love, loss, and grief. In other words, this beast of a tale looks more likely to break your heart than to make you scream. Watch the latest A Monster Calls teaser trailer below.
