Brigsby Bear

The time has come for you to meet Brigsby Bear. The indie comedy that made a splash at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year has slowly been rolling out to more cities. Right now it’s only in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Washington DC, but it arrives in even more cities like San Diego, Austin, Minneapolis, Philadephia and more, this weekend.

Once the movie is playing in your city, you must seek it out immediately. It’s one of the best movies of the year and explores the power of storytelling and fandom in a fascinating, touching way. Not only is Brigsby Bear hilarious, but it’s also charming as hell. A big part of the charm comes from how genuine Kyle Mooney plays his character James, who is obsessed with the TV show Brigsby Bear Adventures, a strange blend of Teddy Ruxpin, Star Trek and educational children’s programming.

Now you can see part of an episode of Brigsby Bear Adventures yourself with a retro clip from the show surfacing online. Read More »

Fans waiting to get a new glimpse at Star Wars: The Last Jedi had their appetite curbed by the behind the scenes sizzle reel that debuted at The D23 Expo back in July. Now we’re just waiting for a new trailer to arrive, with no indication of when exactly that might happen. In the meantime, some new photos and details have been revealed to give us more insight into the next installment of the new Star Wars trilogy.

A whole batch of new Star Wars The Last Jedi photos reveal more of Daisy Ridley as Rey, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, John Boyega as Finn, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, along with new creatues and locations, as well as new details about what to expect when the film arrives in December.

Star Wars The Last Jedi at Comic-Con

Coming out of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, fans were left with a huge question: who are Rey’s parents and why did they abandon her on Jakku? It looks like Rian Johnson‘s Star Wars: The Last Jedi might finally answer this question when it hits theaters two years after JJ Abrams’ Star Wars saga film. And there is the big revelation that Luke Skywalker believed that Kylo Ren was going to be “the chosen one.” Here’s what we know.

luke in hiding in the last jedi

“It’s time for the Jedi to end.”

How did Luke Skywalker, once a wide-eyed ingenue who only wanted to become a Jedi Master like his father before him, become so downtrodden that he would deny his heritage and the rest of the galaxy by going into hiding? We’ll find out in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the latest entry in the Star Wars franchise that was brought into the modern era with 2015’s The Force Awakens.

But before Episode VIII hits theaters in December, Entertainment Weekly has a story jam-packed with hints and reveals from Mark Hamill and Last Jedi director Rian Johnson about why Luke is in hiding.

Brigsby Bear Trailer

When the /Film crew attended the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, one of our favorite movies was the comedy Brigsby Bear. The film hails from Saturday Night Live sketch director Dave McCary and cast member Kyle Mooney, and a new trailer finally digs a little deeper into what makes this quirky comedy so damn good.

However, we want to point out that while the new Brigsby Bear trailer gives away a little more of the story than the teaser trailer did, it still doesn’t come right out and explain the catalyst for the film’s story (though it’s not difficult to figure out). Personally, I think the movie is better experienced if you go in knowing as little as possible, but if you’re not worried about ruining an interesting turn in the story that happens within the first 10-15 minutes, then just keep on reading after the video. Otherwise, just watch the Brigsby Bear trailer and then go about your day. Read More »

Star Wars The Last Jedi

Over the weekend, Disney and Lucasfilm unveiled one of those beautiful behind the scenes sizzle reels for Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the D23 Expo. It wasn’t quite as exciting as a brand new trailer would have been, but that doesn’t mean the video wasn’t full of a bunch of new details for fans to examine frame by frame.

Below, we take a look at dozens of shots from The Last Jedi sizzle reel to see what we can figure out about the second part of the new Star Wars trilogy. While there are plenty of things we don’t entirely understand just yet, there is plenty of new footage here that does help us figure out how some parts of the story will unfold. So check out our The Last Jedi sizzle reel breakdown, and see what we figured out. Read More »

Batman Mask of the Phantasm Blu-ray

Following the release of Tim Burton’s Batman in 1989 and the sequel Batman Returns in 1992, Warner Bros. Pictures tried their hand at bringing the animated version of The Dark Knight to theaters with Batman: Mask of the Phantasm on Christmas Day in 1993.

As a continuation of Batman: The Animated Series, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year like Batman Returns, the animated film didn’t spark much interest at the box office, pulling in only $5.6 million in its entire domestic run. Still, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm has become a favorite among Batman fans, especially with all the love that they have for the animated series that inspired it.

For years, fans have wanted to get their hands on Batman: Mask of the Phantasm in high definition, but it hadn’t been made available. That will change later this year though as Warner Archive has just announced the animated movie will be releases on Blu-ray this summer. Find out more about the Batman Mask of the Phantasm Blu-ray after the jump. Read More »

Mark Hamill - Star Wars The Last Jedi Disagreement

Towards the end of last month, a slew of Star Wars: The Last Jedi details came from Vanity Fair’s big cover story, but there was one new piece of information that caught fans off guard.

During an interview, Mark Hamill brought up a conversation he had with director Rian Johnson:

“I at one point had to say to Rian, ‘I pretty much fundamentally disagree with every choice you’ve made for this character. Now, having said that, I have gotten it off my chest, and my job now is to take what you’ve created and do my best to realize your vision.'”

Some fans took that in a negative way, but Hamill has taken the time to clarify that’s not how he feels about the situation anymore. Find out what else Mark Hamill had to say about his The Last Jedi disagreement below. Read More »

Brigsby Bear Trailer

After debuting at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the first trailer for the quirky indie comedy Brigsby Bear has arrived, and it’s perfectly weird. Just like the movie.

Just in case the marketing campaign somehow manages to keep certain details about the narrative under wraps, we’ll leave certain story points below the trailer, since they don’t reveal any key pieces of information just yet. So if you want to go into this movie completely blind, don’t read anything below the Brigsby Bear trailer embed. You’ve been warned! Read More »
