avengers infinity war spoiler review

Everything dies, baby that’s a fact
But maybe everything that dies someday comes back.

– Bruce Springsteen, “Atlantic City”

Does Avengers: Infinity War live up to the hype? That depends. If you wanted nothing more than to see the majority of the Marvel Cinematic Universe characters up on the screen together, then yes, Infinity War delivers. If you were hoping for something deeper, you might find yourself wanting more. Ultimately, Infinity War is a magic trick of a movie, full of deception and misdirection. It entertains, sure – but when the smoke clears, we can’t help but see the obvious way the trick was designed.

We might have seen Marvel’s first solo black superhero movie long before Black Panther.

A pitch for a War Machine solo movie starring Don Cheadle was nearly greenlit by Marvel. The project got as far as Marvel hiring the writer who pitched the idea, screenwriter Joe Robert Cole (who would later co-write Black Panther), but the project stalled as Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 script started coming together.

Captain America Civil War Posters

Yesterday brought our report straight from the set of Captain America: Civil War when the film was in production in Atlanta, Georgia last June. Along with that came a batch of posters for all the characters on Team Cap, as well as an interview with stars Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan. But that was just the beginning of our Civil War coverage this week.

There are rumblings of a new trailer for the Marvel Studios sequel arriving this week, but in the meantime, we’re running interviews from our set visit all week. Today we’ve got interviews with Robert Downey Jr., and some good stuff with Chadwick Boseman, a.k.a. Black Panther. But right now we’ve got a batch of new Captain America Civil War posters showcasing Team Iron Man, and one can’t help but notice they’re a man short when facing Team Cap. Read More »

NYFF trailer

In the past couple years the trailer for the New York Film Festival has been a nice little thing to look forward to. Each NYFF trailer is usually very well cut, and also features some glimpse of footage for a film we otherwise haven’t seen yet. This year, that film is Miles Ahead, the Miles Davis biopic directed by and starring Don Cheadle.

This trailer also features Maggie’s Plan by Rebecca Miller, which stars Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke, and Julianne Moore; and footage from The Walk, Bridge Of Spies, Steve Jobs, Carol, and quite a few more. There’s even a good bit of footage from Guy Maddin‘s The Forbidden Room. (Hint: the Guy Maddin footage is the most odd-looking stuff.) Read More »
