Replicas NYCC Panel

How many times can we see the Frankenstein concept of bringing back dead people play out on the big screen, you ask?  Short answer: countless times. Keanu Reeves is starring in Replicas, the latest in a long line of films, mostly told from a male perspective mind you, which tampers with death and recreation. If you haven’t seen it already.

I have nothing against films that explore the idea of cloning. Though, I think BBC America’s small screen gem Orphan Black did an exceptional job taking on themes of feminism, sisterhood, and the politics of science.

But according to Reeves, Replicas is more about how man manipulates nature for his own selfish needs, which makes me significantly less excited about it. “There’s an idea of control, an impulse to create and manifest. This film is having a conversation with that.”

THE MATRIX reboot

In March, word broke that a potential reboot of The Matrix, the influential 1999 sci-fi hit that reshaped the action movie landscape and made billowy coats cool again, was in the works at Warner Brothers. X-Men: The Last Stand and Ready Player One screenwriter Zak Penn was mentioned as being attached to the film, and Penn later tried to set the record straight by saying the film was not really a reboot. Now Penn has offered a new update. Get the details on the new Matrix movie below.

The word “Keanu” means “the cool breeze” in Hawaiian, and just like a cool breeze, a new photo from Keanu Reeves‘ new movie Replicas has just blown in from across the internet.

Winona Ryder

Here’s an unfinished movie that’s already got my money, guaranteed: a romantic comedy starring Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder. They’re playing miserable wedding guests in writer-director Victor Levin‘s (5 to 7) Destination Wedding, which has already wrapped shooting. The romantic comedy is the fourth time Reeves and Ryder have done a movie together, following Coppola’s Bram Stoker’s DraculaA Scanner Darkly, and The Private Lives of Pippa Lee.

Point Break Honest Trailer

This weekend brings the release of Kathryn Bigelow‘s latest film inspired by real life events with the intense drama Detroit. The film takes a timely look at racial tension by shining a light on a police stand-off that happened at the Algiers Motel in the wake of the historic Detroit riots. This comes after Bigelow so intensely captured the danger of being part of a bomb-disposal unit in The Hurt Locker and dramatizing the hunt for Osama Bin Laden in Zero Dark Thirty.

But there was a time when Kathryn Bigelow was just about action and bromance. The movie Point Break is one of the classic action flicks to come out of the 1980s (I say that because even though it came out in 1991, it’s an 80s movie through and through), mostly because you can’t forget a movie that’s about bank robbing surfers led by Patrick Swayze while Keanu Reeves plays a star college athlete turned FBI agent whose been hired to infiltrate the criminal ring. The folks at Honest Trailers have some fun taking jabs at this flick, and it’s pretty sick, brah. Read More »

Ana Lily

The Bad Batch is a vibrant and surreal western with a quiet drifter (Suki Waterhouse), a towering but sensitive cannibal (Jason Momoa), a mute savior (Jim Carrey), and a mysterious leader called the Dream (Keanu Reeves). Ana Lily Amirpour‘s film mixes death and loss, psychedelia and body builders, to tell a story that’s certainly original. Amirpour’s follow-up to her breakout debut, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, feels like a completely new body built with a few old spare parts.

The writer-director’s sophomore effort has a kind of freewheeling, acid-induced flow to it – shots are bursting with color and life. Amirpour told us about imagining some of these frames along with creating the world, Arlen and Miami Man, and the music from The Bad Batch.

John Wick is rapidly expanding from the cult action movie that first splashed onto the scene in 2014. First John Wick: Chapter 2 introduced a sprawling international network of assassins whose world is infinitely more complex than we could have dreamed.

Then a TV show was announced which is set to explore that world, with star Keanu Reeves set to make a cameo. Now, a comic book series will be released in September exploring the origins of the great, mythic John Wick himself, written by acclaimed Planet Hulk writer Greg Pak and drawn with stylish gusto by Giovanni Valletta.
