Edgar Wright project

Director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) is currently making the press rounds promoting his new music-driven action thriller Baby Driver, which comes out next week. But earlier this month, he dropped a tantalizing hint in an interview about a “crazy” new project he has coming up. What could this mystery Edgar Wright project be?

Preacher Season 2 Promo

Preacher is back for a second season on AMC. Jesse (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Ruth Negga) and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) are on the road looking for God but they’re not alone – The Cowboy (Graham McTavish), introduced last season, is on their tail.

Showrunner Sam Catlin developed the Preacher series alongside Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and the second season continues to toy with elements of the comic book. For instance, Eugene (Ian Colletti) is in Hell, reliving his “Arseface” origin while the lead trio meet new characters back on Earth.

Catlin spoke with /Film by phone this week to discuss Preacher season 2. While he was tight-lipped on some spoilers, he revealed some major comic book characters coming this season and addressed some of the encounters in the first three episodes of the new season.

Battle of the Sexes Trailer

We’re still in the middle of the Summer blockbuster movie season, but as the Fall inches closer, we’re starting to get glimpses of the movies that will be vying for trophies when awards season arrives. One of those movies tells the story of the highly publicized tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs in 1973, a tennis match that pitted man versus woman in the event that would become known as the Battle of the Sexes.

Watch a new Battle of the Sexes trailer from the United Kingdom for another glimpse at this true story. Read More »

Transformers The Last Knight Credits Scene

Transformers: The Last Knight is in theaters now and pretty much everyone agrees that it’s quite an insane sequel. It’s packed full of so many characters, exposition, and craziness that you kind of need to see it for yourself. Only adding to that insanity is a mid-credits that that sets up sequels, though much like the movie, it doesn’t make much sense.

Let’s talk about the Transformers The Last Knight credits scene and what it means for the future of the franchise, but beware of spoilers for the sequel if you haven’t seen it yet. Read More »

Star Trek Discovery uniforms

It was a rule that plagued writers of previous Star Trek TV shows: in order to better represent Trek creator Gene Roddenberry’s idyllic vision of a utopian future, writers were strongly encouraged to avoid having Starfleet crew members in conflict with each other. But that won’t be the case on Star Trek: Discovery, because showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen J. Berg have lifted that restriction for their writing staff, which should lead to a very different Trek show than any we’ve seen before.

Below, read more about the discarding of the old rule, see a photo of a new Star Trek Discovery uniform (ooh, tactical armor!), and check out an infographic that breaks down the new styles of the uniforms in detail.

TheMist-7

Stephen King has done really well on television. Miniseries adaptations of It, The Stand, Salem’s Lot and The Tommyknockers were hits and Under the Dome managed to run three seasons. Even the miniseries remake of The Shining received King’s blessing.

Now, the acclaimed novella The Mist is getting a television adaptation, following in the footsteps of Frank Darabont’s 2007 film version. Spike TV’s series is based on the concept of the King novella, but starts with entirely new characters and multiple locations. Instead of a supermarket, characters get trapped in a mall and library by a thick fog that hides murderous creatures within.

Showrunner Christian Torpe adapted The Mist for television and he spoke with /Film by phone last week to talk about about the new series. .

Ron Howard on Han Solo Directing Gig

This week has been a whirlwind for Star Wars fans — the news that Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were fired two-thirds of the way through production of the untitled Han Solo spin-off movie hit the Internet on Tuesday. Just as quickly, it was announced that Ron Howard would step in to finish directing the film.

But the man at the center of it all has remained largely silent as the fans and hot takes swirled around him. Now, Howard has spoken up about taking over the Han Solo directing gig, offering a humble response to the burden that has been placed on him.

michael bay

Without question, one of my favorite parts of my job is the Michael Bay stories. If somebody has worked with him, they usually have a good story to tell. Few filmmakers, if any, direct and act like Michael Bay. He’s one in a million, which is maybe why his movies tend to make hundreds of millions of dollars.

Someone else who has some great stories to tell about Michael Bay? Michael Bay. The filmmaker (and huge dog lover) usually discusses his work and collaborators with candor. His commentaries, for example, are highly entertaining. After listening to all of them and devouring his movie’s extensive bonus features – and having my mind consumed by Bayhem – I decided it was time to compile a list of the best Michael Bay stories…as told by Michael Bay.

Below, get to know the director of Transformers: The Last Knight a little more intimately.

Pixar Smash and Grab First Look

Pixar and Neill Blomkamp seem to have the same, exciting idea — when you’re in a creative rut, turn to the thing that helped you break onto the scene in the first place: short films.

We learned in May that Pixar would be getting in touch with their roots by launching an experimental short film division. Now we get a sneak peek at the fruits of their labors with the first images from the division’s first film, which is titled Smash and Grab.

The Little Hours review

The Little Hours is based on one of the tales found in The Decameron, a collection of 14th century novellas from Italian author Giovanni Boccaccio. But even if, like me, you’d never heard of that author before (let alone read his work), all you really need to know about this film is that it features a cast of hilarious people doing filthy, hysterical things. The trailer prominently features a quote from the Catholic League that refers to the movie as “pure trash” – but there’s an important distinction that needs to be made there. It may be trashy, but it’s definitely not trash. The Little Hours is one of the funniest films of 2017. Read More »
