The Breakfast Club prints

Even though this year doesn’t mark a special anniversary for the pinnacle high school movie The Breakfast Club, that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate one of the classic 1980s films that John Hughes gave us.

Unearthed

I’m a fan of Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman, but we’ve been writing so much about him lately that I’m almost sick of seeing the dude’s name. But when you’re one of Hollywood’s most in-demand filmmakers, “being too prolific” is likely a problem he’s happy to have.

Last year, the director was flirting with the possibility of directing a film adaptation of a forthcoming young adult novel called Unearthed, which was described as “Indiana Jones meets Tomb Rader, in space.” Now Liman is officially attached, and the project has secured a couple of writers to boot.

Cloak and Dagger Logo Marvel Freeform

Let’s be real: Marvel Entertainment has produced some pretty damn cheesy television over the past few years. They’re not necessarily bad shows, mind you, but many of them have dipped into super cheesy territory: overly dramatic, seemingly lacking any sense of self-awareness, the works. I don’t need to name names because you know it when you see it.

Today, Freeform (formerly ABC Family) released a trailer for Marvel’s new teen-centric series Cloak and Dagger, and it could just be the editing in this trailer, but man, this show looks like Chester Cheetah: dangerously cheesy.

Edgar Wright Grasshopper Jungle

After Shaun of the Dead writer/director Edgar Wright left Ant-Man a few years ago, he was shopping a few projects around town in an attempt to set up his next movie. As you know, Baby Driver ended up being first in line, but one of the other films he was mulling over in that time was Grasshopper Jungle, an adaptation of Andrew Smith’s young adult novel in which a teenager and his friends accidentally unleash a swarm of six-foot-tall praying mantises on his town.

Now that Baby Driver is racing into theaters sooner than we thought, Wright’s again on the hunt for his newest project – and it looks like a familiar project has reared its head once again. Read on for the latest about Edgar Wright’s Grasshopper Jungle.

French filmmaker Luc Besson may be best known for directing visually dazzling sci-fi films like The Fifth Element and the upcoming Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, but he’s also built up quite a career as a writer. He’s written screenplays for a handful of movies he didn’t direct, including Taken, The Transporter, and Colombiana. His latest scripted foray is a web series called Playground, and it’s described as a mixture between Nikita and Kick-Ass. Watch the first Playground trailer below. Read More »

Michelle Williams in Manchester by the Sea

Call Me By Your Name review

First love has rarely been depicted as beautifully or as movingly as it is in Luca Guadagnino‘s Call Me By Your Name, an adaptation of the André AcimanTimothée Chalamet, probably best known as bratty Finn Walden from season one of Homeland), has a star-making turn as a teenager exploring his sexual identity. Meanwhile, Armie Hammer, a very good actor who’s been stuck in some not-very-successful movies, is downright mesmerizing as the young man who changes his life forever.
