it tv spot

With The Dark Tower receiving almost entirely negative reactions (our own Josh Spiegel couldn’t believe how lifeless it is), Stephen King fans are probably ending their week in a sour mood. However, there’s a glimmer of hope on the horizon. That is, if you define “hope” as a shapeshifting entity that devours children and often takes on the appearance of a menacing clown named Pennywise.

Andy Muschietti‘s upcoming adaptation of It is a little over a month away from release and the marketing floodgates have begun to open. While some may argue that King fans need to stop getting their hopes up, I can’t help but be excited for this one. A new TV spot, and the news that four minutes of the movie will premiere in theaters next week, are only fueling the fire.

atomic blonde review

John Wick co-director David Leitch went solo to helm the new Charlize Theron spy film Atomic Blonde, and he proved he could deliver a slick, stylish thriller full of memorable action sequences. I’m sure you’ve already heard about one scene that’s made to look like a single shot, because it’s already earned legendary status among action movie geeks and will rightfully be praised for years to come.

But that’s not the only worthwhile action beat in the movie, and we’ve gathered a couple of videos from the production’s crew that explain how they worked with the actors to pull off a brutal, bone-crunching barrage of punches, kicks, and in-camera car chase stunts that drop us into the world of 1980s Berlin. Find out how these Atomic Blonde stunts were achieved below.

Ghost in the Shell Featurette - The Morning Watch

(The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.)

In this edition, a video essay takes a closer look at the ending of No Country for Old Men, ten years after the movie hit theaters, and a Ghost in the Shell featurette looks at one of the few things the movie did right, which is the incredible practical effects created by Weta Workshop. Plus, Eclectic Method created a catchy track composed entire of Star Wars sound effects, and it’s better than most songs you hear on the radio nowadays. Read More »

Lupita Nyong'o Comic-Con video

This past Saturday, 6,500 fans saw actress Lupita Nyong’o take the stage during Marvel Studios’ panel to promote the upcoming superhero film Black Panther.

If you want to see what pure joy looks like, look no further than this Lupita Nyong’o Comic-Con video.

Rick and Morty Season 3

With all the hullabaloo of San Diego Comic-Con, there’s so much to see and do that we don’t even have time to cover every single show we love. One of the programs that fell by the wayside for us over the weekend was Adult Swim’s incredible animated series Rick and Morty. It’s one of my favorite shows on TV right now and it killed me to miss it since the /Film crew had so much more to cover.

Thankfully, the internet is a helpful place, and you can pretend that you were at Comic-Con yourself by catching up on all the big updates that came from the Rick and Morty panel. That includes a new sneak peek behind the scenes of an episode that will take the titular duo to the Wasteland of Mad Max, details on some of the guest stars coming this season, and the triumph of co-creator Justin Roiland finally getting his hands on the retired McDonald’s Mulan Szechuan sauce.

Find out all the new details about Rick and Morty season 3 below. Read More »

war for the planet of the apes maurice

Even though we’ve been caught up in the craziness of San Diego Comic-Con since the middle of last week, we can’t forget that just before the convention kicked off, some great movies hit theaters. One of those movies is War for the Planet of the Apes, which begs to not only be seen, but is good enough to see multiple times.

If you haven’t seen War for the Planet of the Apes yet, maybe listening to director Matt Reeves break down one of the key scenes from the film will get you excited enough to see it right away. His passion for these characters is undeniable, his respect for the artistry that goes into bringing these apes to life is clear, and he points out subtle details that you otherwise might not have been privy to while watching the scene.

Death Note Clip

A new film from the director of The Guest and You’re Next should be cause for anticipation and celebration. Adam Wingard has a great, dark sense of fun as a filmmaker. His characters, especially David (Dan Stevens) in The Guest, are generally as well-defined as his style. He’s described his latest film, Death Note, as having an attitude not dissimilar from The Guest – a movie that gets better every time you watch it.

While a new film from the director of that thrilling B-movie, who’s been tapped to direct Godzilla vs. Kong, sounds enticing, Americanizing the manga series and the casting choices have drawn controversy online. A month away from Death Note‘s debut, when fans and critics can judge the movie, Netflix has released a new look at the film at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

Below, watch the new Death Note clip.
