What Happened to Monday trailer

Netflix has unveiled a new trailer for a dystopian thriller called What Happened to Monday that features Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) playing seven identical twin sisters whose very existence is a crime: they’ve secretly grown to adulthood in a world in which every family is only allowed to have one child. This looks like a ridiculously fun B-movie, and I can’t wait to check it out. Watch the trailer below.

guardians of the galaxy vol 2 behind the scenes

In April 2016, I traveled to Atlanta to visit the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. While on set, a group of journalists including myself, sat down with writer/director James Gunn to talk about the highly anticipated Marvel sequel.

During the conversation, Gunn tries to clear up Kurt Russell‘s role in the film which they were being very vague about during our visit, talks about the 64-page treatment he wrote for the film and how that is different from the shooting draft, Nebula and Gamora’s relationship, shooting scenes in full screen IMAX, explaining Mantis’ role in this story, having no plan-B for Ego, his choice of songs for Awesome Mix Tape #2, the idea to feature Baby Groot in the movie instead of a fully regrown Groot, more information about the film’s villain Ayesha and her alien race.

Gunn also talks about his easter egg obsession, the evolution of Rocket and Groot’s relationship, why Quill was able to hold an Infinity Stone, pushing the weirdness to a new level, the creative freedom at Marvel, the possibility of doing another Guardians movie, the decision to set this film only a couple months after the events of the first film, Mantis’ relationship with Ego and the Guardians crew, the family theme at the core of the movie, the end credit tags, the trap of sequels and predicting the biggest surprise of this film. All this and more, in our roundtable James Gunn interview which you can read after the jump.

avengers infinity war score

When Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced Avengers: Infinity War, it was positioned as a two-film epic crossover event that would be the culmination of everything Marvel had planned up to that point. So with both films about to start shooting concurrently, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all the characters confirmed or rumored to be part of Avengers: Infinity War, and theorize how they may play into this story.

The Girl with All the Gifts Trailer

Over the past decade, it feels like the zombie subgenre of horror films has been played out. The popularity of The Walking Dead on television reinvigorated zombie movies, but most haven’t done anything original with the concept. There have been fresher approaches to zombies with films such as Zombieland, Warm Bodies, Life After Beth, Maggie and Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, but 28 Days Later was probably the last great zombie movie.

However, it looks like the United Kingdom might have another great zombie thriller waiting to be unleashed. The Girl With All the Gifts trailer has just arrived online, showing off the film adaptation of M.R. Carey‘s novel of the same name. The film follows a contingent of soldiers and scientists researching a group of children who are infected with a zombie pathogen, but somehow still control their thoughts and emotions, despite still have a desire to eat human flesh. Among the group, one girl named Melanie seems to be the key to finding a cure. Read More »

Anesthesia trailer

Kristen Stewart may have become a household name on the strength of one of the biggest studio franchises in recent memory, but since Twilight wrapped up in 2012 she’s established herself as an indie darling. Earlier this year she garnered tons of buzz for her turns in Still Alice and Clouds of Sils Maria, and next year she’ll be back with four or five more titles including Tim Blake Nelson‘s Anesthesia.

The ensemble drama, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, hinges on a violent attack against a well liked professor (played by Sam Waterston). The film jumps back a week to explain how the incident came to back, focusing on a seemingly disparate cast of characters played by Nelson, Stewart, Glenn CloseCorey StollGretchen MolMichael K. Williams, and more. Watch the Anesthesia trailer after the jump. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Glenn Close

We still don’t know who will voice Rocket Raccoon or Groot, the two CG-created team members in James Gunn‘s comedic sci-fi action film Guardians of the Galaxy. But a press release announcing the start of production (which in reality was more than two weeks ago) Marvel Studios officially announces that Glenn Close is in the film, playing Nova-Prime. That’s a confirmation of a report from late this spring, and also an interesting choice as the character is typically male in various comic book appearances. Read More »
