maze runner the death cure clips

This YA dystopian movie has everything: zombies, explosions, deadly missiles, and Giancarlo Esposito in a fabulous coat. Aiden Gillen’s also rocking a sweet turtleneck, but the fashion choices of the prestigious character actors is besides the point: the Maze Runner trilogy is officially reaching the end of the labyrinth.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure is closing out the YA dystopia series — admittedly, one of the better ones we’ve seen in the past decade — with a bombastic third and final act. That means the Gladers, led by Dylan O’Brien‘s Thomas, will be going back into the deadliest maze they’ve faced yet. Because as everyone knows, the only way to move forward is to go back.

Lady Bird Featurette - Greta Gerwig

Lady Bird is one of the major awards contenders this season, and it will likely end up with a Best Picture nomination when all is said and done. The real question is whether the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will be smart enough to give Greta Gerwig a nomination for Best Director.

So far, plenty of awards programs have left Greta Gerwig out in the wind, with the Directors Guild of America being the only major award outlet to recognize her talent with a nomination. But if there’s any doubt that Gerwig should be included among the likes of other probable nominees like Guillermo del Toro and Christopher Nolan, a new Lady Bird featurette that focuses on what she brought to the table as a director should change anyone’s mind.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

it deleted scene

What if Georgie (Jackson Robert Scott) never died and everyone lived happily ever after? C’mon, you can’t deny that you hoped the adorable doomed kid would pull through in the end? Look at his little raincoat! And his little boots! And the cute little way he screams “NO!” when his paper boat starts speeding down the drain.

Well, It director Andy Muschietti is here to cater to your every whim, with a “deleted scene” of Georgie meeting Pennywise (Bill Skarsgard) that was filmed as a joke, but which I’ll take as an alternate, happier version of the movie.

A Wrinkle in Time images

There’s something magical about seeing a black girl with curly hair take the lead in a Disney tentpole — and A Wrinkle in Time director Ava Duvernay knows how monumental it is. To supplement her unique heroine, Duvernay surrounds newcomer Storm Reid with warm, talented co-stars and a ravishing vision of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic sci-fi novel. And we get to see how that all came together in the new A Wrinkle in Time behind-the-scenes featurette.

Black Panther Featurette - Danai Gurira as Okoye

Black Panther doesn’t hit theaters for a little over a month, but the movie is already breaking records by selling more advance tickets in its first day of sales than any other Marvel Cinematic Universe title that came before it. This looks like it will be an even bigger movie than some have speculated, and the more footage we see from Chadwick Boseman‘s first solo big screen outing as the superhero, the cooler it looks.

A new Black Panther featurette has arrived online, this time focusing on two specific warriors of Wakanda. There’s Okoye, played by The Walking Dead star Danai Guriria (seen above), and Nakia, played by 12 Years a Slave star Lupita Nyong’o. The featurette not only provides some key details about each of their characters, but shows them kicking ass in the secretive African stronghold of Wakanda. Read More »

thor ragnarok bloopers

We don’t deserve Taika Waititi. Not only is the man constantly immaculately dressed, he’s a boundless ball of joy and energy who turned his Thor: Ragnarok set into one big ‘ol dance party.

Take this Thor: Ragnarok gag reel. Rather than introduce it like your standard special feature video where the actors do talking head interviews about how much fun they had on set, Waititi primps and preens in front of the camera, taking the viewer on a dramatic tour of the set while he pokes fun at bits of set dressing. It’s so incredibly extra, and exactly what Waititi — who built up hype for his film by releasing those hilarious Team Thor mockumentary shorts — would do.
