Director Scott Derrickson gave Marvel fans an early Christmas present late Sunday night when he posted an image that appears to be Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. It was accompanied by the quote “Strange but not a stranger,” from the Talking Heads song ‘Burning Down the House.’ Is it fan art? Is it official? Probably somewhere in the middle. But either way, it’s an endorsement from the director of the Phase Three film set for release November 4, 2016. Check out the mysterious Benedict Cumberbatch Doctor Strange image below. Read More »

Audiences probably didn’t realize at the time, but Sergio Leone‘s 1966 western The Good, The Bad and The Ugly was a landmark. It would become one of, if not the, iconic films in the careers of Leone, its stars Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef, composer Ennio Morricone as well as one of the most recognizable and imitated films in the Western genre.
All that makes it the perfect piece for a beautiful, limited edition poster, and Skuzzles is happy to oblige. The Canadian company has hired meticulous and lyrical artist JC Richard to do a beautiful screenprint of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, which goes on sale December 23. We’re proud to exclusively debut The Good The Bad and The Ugly poster below. Read More »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we get hooked up for an annual plan of domination, grab some corned beef, wonder at a tiger taking down a horse, watch who we kiss in Russia, and see if we can get an early check out at the Marigold Hotel.

We’ve praised The Babadook since Sundance. It landed on Angie’s “Best Performances of 2014” list and our “50 Great Movies From 2014” list, and (spoiler) it’ll be on my ranked top ten of 2014, too. In short: see it! (Even Stephen King and The Exorcist director William Friedkin would tell you that.)
The film is on VOD now and in some theaters, too, so you can see it for yourself. If you haven’t seen it yet and are still on the fence, however, maybe a little friendly greeting will get you to give it a shot. This is just like the Charlie Brown Christmas special, only a lot darker. (OK, maybe not quite like that, but it’s still fun.) Read More »

Star Wars is one of those franchises where almost nothing you discover about it is new. Whether it be a cool inside fact, image, or whatever, odds are it’s been out there years, possibly decades. Maybe it’s new to you but the franchise has been so closely followed for so many years, it would be very rare to find something genuinely new in relation to the original or prequel trilogies.
That’s a preamble to say the following video is not necessarily a new discovery. It was recently uploaded, and I’ve never seen it before. But Star Wars fans are so crazy, maybe some of you have. The video is about six minutes of B-roll footage from the set of the original 1977 Star Wars. That means the footage is almost 40 years old. And it’s incredible. It’s George Lucas, Mark Hamill and Garrick Hagon (who played Luke’s best friend Biggs) shooting a scene that’s not in the movie. It’s just raw footage of people walking around the set. Check out the Star Wars behind the scenes footage below. Read More »
