the last thing he wanted

While all of the attention has gone to socially conscious Oscar front-runners like Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Get Out, Anne Hathaway and Dee Rees both quietly delivered two of the most powerful movies of 2017. Hathaway starred in the clever Colossal, whose themes of domestic violence elevated its quirky sci-fi underpinnings, while Rees directed the racially-charged period drama Mudbound. Now, the two of them will be teaming up for their next project.

Hathaway will be starring in The Last Thing He Wanted, an adaptation of a Joan Didion political thriller directed by Rees.

ocean's 8 trailer

They’re good at what they do, and they look good doing it.

The all-female reboot Ocean’s 8 has finally dropped its first trailer, and it looks stylish, sleek, as perfect as you’d imagine a movie starring some of Hollywood’s most talented actresses would be. Sandra Bullock stars as Debbie Ocean, the estranged younger sister of George Clooney’s Danny Ocean from the Ocean’s Eleven films, who assembles a team of talented thieves to pull off a heist at the annual Met Gala. But the twist: there’s not a man in sight, except for the ones who are probably there to shine the women’s shoes (I’m kidding, men are great).

Ocean's 8

In 2018, Ocean’s 8 will reboot the Ocean’s 11 franchise with an all-female cast, and what a cast it is! Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Mindy Kailing, Sarah Paulson, and Awkwafina lead the film, with The Hunger Games‘ director Gary Ross calling the shots. Star Sandra Bullock revealed new Ocean’s 8 details and talked a little about the inevitable online backlash surrounding a rebooted property with an female-centric cast.

Martin Scorsese Silence streaming

(Welcome to Now Stream This, a column dedicated to the best movies streaming on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every other streaming service out there.) 

Happy Holidays, I guess. As we wind down the clock on this garbage year, let us take time to appreciate the few good things in life: movies. Where would we be without movies? The answer, I think, is the grave. Or maybe I’m exaggerating. Either way, there’s something comforting about tuning out the world for two hours or so and engrossing yourself in a moving piece of entertainment (unless you’re one of those jerks who looks at their phone through an entire movie; stop that, kids).

If you’re looking for some streaming recommendations as the days grow shorter and winter arrives, look no further. I’ve assembled a hearty helping of films for you to sample. There’s a new Martin Scorsese masterpiece, a Shane Black comedy, a film about a ranting, raving president (no, not the current one), a suburban Western, and more! Here are the best movies streaming right now! So let’s get streaming.

anne hathaway barbie

Anne Hathaway may soon find that life in plastic, it’s fantastic.

The Colossal actress is reportedly eyeing the lead role in Sony’s Barbie movie, which Amy Schumer was originally slated to play before she dropped out of the comedy in March. But before you start praising the film for casting someone who’s more classically beautiful, I just want to remind you: the Barbie movie is a subversive comedy about a woman who doesn’t fit in, in the land of Barbies. But considering Hathaway’s underrated comedy chops, she could be a good choice for the role anyway.

Ocean's Eight cameo

17 years after Steven Soderbergh gave us one of the most charismatic casts to grace the screen in the 21st century with Ocean’s 11, we’ll see a new team of thieves form in Ocean’s Eight. Director Gary Ross put together a hell of a crew, too, with Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter. One member of Danny Ocean’s gang will appear with them in the film, and now another actor from Soderbergh’s trilogy is now confirmed to join in on the fun.

It’s a cameo, so it’s a spoiler, but if you want to know who else is making an Ocean’s Eight cameo, find out below.

Spider-Man 4

The cancellation of Spider-Man 4 still feels like a missed opportunity, especially after how The Amazing Spider-Man movies turned out. Sony pulled the plug on what could’ve allowed Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire to send Spider-Man out on a high note. Instead of waiting to get the script right, the studio decided to reboot quickly instead.

You might all recall what went down with the sequel, but ten years after Spider-Man 3 hit theaters, let’s take a quick trip down memory lane and remember the Spider-Man sequel we wanted and never got.

Colossal Anne Hathaway

The premise of Colossal is so wacky and refreshing that every minute of it surprises you. A woman moves back to her hometown after breaking up with her boyfriend, and finds that she is somehow psychically linked to a giant monster wreaking havoc in Seoul. How it would follow up on such a unique premise? I admit I wondered that going into the film, but it delivered. And it worked so wonderfully because I had virtually no knowledge of the film going in — the marketing up until then had been ingeniously discrete and mysterious.

That may change for those who haven’t seen Colossal yet, with the newest trailer released for the Anne Hathaway film. Don’t read further if you don’t want spoilers.
