City of Lies Trailer

Johnny Depp and Forest Whitaker take on one of the most notorious unsolved cases in Los Angeles history: the murder of Biggie Smalls. The Brooklyn-born rapper was gunned down in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles in 1997, and to this day, no one knows who did it — though plenty of people have a hunch.

One of those people with a hunch is Johnny Depp’s L.A.P.D. detective Russell Poole, looking inexplicably like he suffered from the same botched dye job as Fantastic Beast‘s Grindelwald. But Depp doesn’t have time to fix his eyebrow color! He has a 20-year old murder to solve.

Sherlock Gnomes poster

A new parody poster for Sherlock Gnomes has arrived and it’s resulted in one pressing question: is this the worst movie poster of 2018? The year may still be relatively young, but it’s hard to believe another film will produce a poster as confounding as this. Below, we investigate this Sherlock Gnomes poster and ponder: why?

War is coming to the Wizarding World.

Things are much more dire in the sequel to the 2016 Harry Potter prequel, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The official trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald drops us off in the middle of Paris, where Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) is preparing for war against his old friend and current foe Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp), the most dangerous Dark wizard in the world. And despite his peace-loving ways, magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) finds himself pulled into the oncoming battle.

Dumbledore's sexuality

While J.K. Rowling has confirmed in the past that Albus Dumbledore was gay, don’t expect the character’s sexuality to come up when he appears in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Director David Yates confirms that rather than address Dumbledore’s sexuality, the film will take the cowardly way out and dance around the issue.

invisible man writer

Universal’s ambitious Dark Universe was supposed to be a star-studded action franchise on par with Marvel’s MCU. But instead, it seems like it’s dead on arrival.

The most recent blow to the slowly lumbering franchise comes from the writer of the planned The Invisible Man film starring Johnny Depp. Ed Solomon (Men in BlackNow You See Me), who had been attached to the project for nearly two years, has officially parted ways with the movie.

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything. In this edition: why J.K. Rowling and the crew of the Fantastic Beasts sequel should not try to defend the casting of Johnny Depp as Grindelwald.)

I’m disappointed. I’ve long upheld Harry Potter to be a series that explores the devastating consequences of domestic abuse and encourages tolerance and empathy. I admired J.K. Rowling, the author of those beloved books and now a screenwriter of the prequel series Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, as a proponent of those same standards.

But the magic threatens to be lost. Director David Yates and others involved in the new films have recently been scrambling to defend the casting of Johnny Depp as the evil wizard Grindelwald in the first Fantastic Beasts and its upcoming sequel Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald amid domestic abuse allegations from Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard. And now Rowling has jumped in to defend Depp. Read More »

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

It’s hard to believe, but director Terry Gilliam has been working on The Man Who Killed Don Quixote for almost 20 years. After one setback after another, with bad luck compounding bad luck, it looks as if Gilliam might buck the odds and finally release the film for the world to see. The filmmaker recently revealed that he’s nearly finished cutting the film together. Hell might be about to freeze over, and we may finally be blessed with Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.
