Sherlock Holmes 3 Update

While making the publicity rounds for Captain America: Civil War, some surprising news came from Robert Downey Jr. that Sherlock Holmes 3 was still in the works. In fact, there was even a chance that the film could shoot later this year. Shortly thereafter, the sequel landed a writer with James Coyne hired for the gig. Now producer Joel Silver adds more hope that the sequel will happen, and he indicates that this probably won’t be the last one.

Personal Shopper image

Acclaimed filmmaker Olivier Assayas‘ latest drama, Personal Shopper, recently premiered at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival. The reception was mixed for the unconventional ghost story, which stars Kristen Stewart, but plenty of critics and audience members were fond of the film. Plus, if the intentional trailer and the plot description are an indication, a polarizing reaction sounds about right.

Watch the Personal Shopper trailer below.

sherlock holmes 3

Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes was one of 2009’s more pleasant surprises, a slick, silly, and surprisingly faithful cinematic re-imagining of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary “consulting detective.” It’s 2011 sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, wasn’t nearly as good, replacing much of the original’s charming bombast with very loud bombast. But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy the rapport between Robert Downey Jr.‘s insufferable genius investigator and Jude Law‘s put-upon Dr. Watson. I’d be lying again if I said I wouldn’t plunk down the cost of a movie ticket to watch those two bicker and banter one more time.

And while we haven’t heard any solid news about Sherlock Holmes 3 for a few years, Downey Jr. himself says the film is still in development, even hinting that it may shoot later this year.

Girl on the Train trailer

How was your ride to work this morning? Did you get snarled up in traffic? Was your train unbearably crowded? Maybe it was raining, or maybe you spilled coffee on yourself in your rush to get out the door. Whatever the case, though, it seems a pretty safe bet you still had a better time than Emily Blunt‘s character in The Girl on the Train.

Directed by Tate Taylor and based on the bestselling novel by Paula HawkinsThe Girl on the Train follows Rachel (Blunt), an alcoholic who’s still reeling from her divorce. Every day on her daily commute, she passes by a perfect-looking couple and fantasizes about what their lives must be like — until one morning, when she witnesses something she wasn’t supposed to. Watch the Girl on the Train trailer after the jump.  Read More »

the night of

HBO’s The Night Of represents screenwriter Steven Zaillian‘s return to the director’s chair. Zaillian hasn’t shot a feature film since All the King’s Men, and although that 2006 remake is a notable misfire, his directional debut, Searching for Bobby Fischer, is reason enough to want to see him direct again. The Academy Award-winning screenwriter responsible for Schindler’s List and American Gangster is, thankfully, back at it, having helmed eight out of the nine episodes of HBO’s upcoming miniseries.

The Night Of, which stars John Turturro and Riz Ahmed (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), premieres this summer. Watch The Night Of teaser trailer below.

manhattan night trailer

If you like trailers that probably reveal far too many plot points, then the trailer for Manhattan Night was cut just for you. The mystery — which might be hard to call a mystery after this trailer — involves a reporter that gets in over his head. Adrien Brody stars in the film, which looks like a bit like a throwback to the sexually-charged thrillers we rarely see these days.

Below, watch the Manhattan Night trailer.

sherlock season 4

Benedict Cumberbatch may have just wrapped production on Marvel’s Doctor Strange a few days ago, but he’s already started shooting Sherlock season 4. Call it keeping your nose to the grindstone. Call it having a supernatural ability to work with the bare minimum amount of sleep. In either case, Mr. Cumberbatch must have the same mutant gene as Dwayne Johnson. You know, the one that allows him to work tirelessly without crashing his car into a ditch or walking into closed doors.

Anyway, the real news here is not that Cumberbatch is secretly one of those kids from Beggars in Spain, but that production has officially begun on more episodes of Sherlock, which is good news for people who like nice things.
