Gary Ross Ocean's 8 Interview

Gary Ross, director of Pleasantville and The Hunger Games, assembled a killer cast of kickass women to relaunch the Ocean’s 11 franchise. The result is Ocean’s 8, a new heist movie that doesn’t reboot the series, but rather branches off from it to create a whole new story. Ross and co-writer Olivia Milch took the world created by Steven Soderbergh in his Ocean‘s films, and rebranded it with a new perspective.

Below, Ross talks about the origin of Ocean’s 8, and how the impressive cast helped sell the studio on the concept.

Ocean's 8 box office tracking

Who’d have thought it would be Death Wish director and horror maestro Eli Roth who would be reviving that good ‘ol Steven Spielberg magic?

But he seems to be doing just that in the new fantasy-horror film The House with a Clock in Its Walls, an adaptation of a beloved, spine-tingling gothic children’s novel. And based on the first The House with a Clock in Its Walls trailer, the movie is rife with fantastical elements, awe-inspiring effects, and delightfully witchy performances from Jack Black and Cate Blanchett.

mowgli movie rating

For a movie that takes place in an untamed jungle filled with ravenous bears, snakes, and tigers, you would think The Jungle Book would have more bloodshed. But both the Disney animated version and its live-action remake are surprisingly bloodless, with the few scary moments punctuated by cheery songs.

Andy Serkis‘ Mowgli will be different. Serkis’ adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s book will hew more closely to reality, complete with a “dark Baloo,” and “bloody imagery.” That bloody imagery is how the film earned a PG-13 from the MPAA.

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.

In the stare-down between two competing film adaptations of The Jungle Book, Warner Bros. was the one that had to blink.

Warner Bros.’ Jungle Book film will be released two years after Disney’s 2016 live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book helmed by Jon Favreau, but it seems that in an effort to differentiate the two, the version directed by Andy Serkis has been retitled to Mowgli. Mowgli stars Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, and Benedict Cumberbatch in motion capture performances.

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).
