ocean's 8 trailer

They’re good at what they do, and they look good doing it.

The all-female reboot Ocean’s 8 has finally dropped its first trailer, and it looks stylish, sleek, as perfect as you’d imagine a movie starring some of Hollywood’s most talented actresses would be. Sandra Bullock stars as Debbie Ocean, the estranged younger sister of George Clooney’s Danny Ocean from the Ocean’s Eleven films, who assembles a team of talented thieves to pull off a heist at the annual Met Gala. But the twist: there’s not a man in sight, except for the ones who are probably there to shine the women’s shoes (I’m kidding, men are great).

Ocean's 8

In 2018, Ocean’s 8 will reboot the Ocean’s 11 franchise with an all-female cast, and what a cast it is! Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Mindy Kailing, Sarah Paulson, and Awkwafina lead the film, with The Hunger Games‘ director Gary Ross calling the shots. Star Sandra Bullock revealed new Ocean’s 8 details and talked a little about the inevitable online backlash surrounding a rebooted property with an female-centric cast.

Blu-ray releases 1128

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

Before we kick November to the curb, there’s a slew of great Blu-rays you might want to snap up for your viewing pleasure. As always, we encourage you to remember that while there’s plenty of digital media out there, physical media is still an essential part of a balanced entertainment diet. You can’t beat something tangible, folks. Or maybe you can. But I’m going to hold onto this stubborn belief as long as humanly possible!

This week’s Blu-ray roundup features Kathy Bates breaking a leg (or two), a killer Santa Claus, Kirsten Dunst getting high, a goofy yet inventive space adventure, the best performance of Robert Pattinson’s career, and Jeff Goldblum doing his Jeff Goldblum thing. Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.

Luc Besson interview

When filmmaker Luc Besson was 10 years old, he was reading the comic book he’d adapt into a massive feature film 48 years later. Based on Pierre Christin and artist Jean-Claude Mézières‘ “Ambassador of Shadows,” published in 1975, Besson has brought their colorful, wacky world to to the big screen with his personal touch on every frame. From the complex, clever set pieces to the jokes to the colorful environments, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is pure Besson.

In a race against the clock, Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) will have to save the city of Alpha, where alien species from all over the galaxy come together to share knowledge. The world feels endless, full of all sorts of aliens, characters, and environments. It took many years it took to build this world piece-by-piece, and the French director behind La Femme Nikita and The Fifth Element recently told us about the process.

Below, check out our Luc Besson interview.

Is Twitter Hollywood’s New Casting Office?

why Ava DuVernay turned down Black Panther

Can you believe that what started out as a random tweet has now become one of Netflix’s upcoming original films?

With so much star power behind this idea, does this mean that Twitter has now officially become the next generator of blockbuster films?

Ocean's Eight cameo

17 years after Steven Soderbergh gave us one of the most charismatic casts to grace the screen in the 21st century with Ocean’s 11, we’ll see a new team of thieves form in Ocean’s Eight. Director Gary Ross put together a hell of a crew, too, with Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter. One member of Danny Ocean’s gang will appear with them in the film, and now another actor from Soderbergh’s trilogy is now confirmed to join in on the fun.

It’s a cameo, so it’s a spoiler, but if you want to know who else is making an Ocean’s Eight cameo, find out below.

Bates Motel Rihanna

Bates Motel returns for its fifth season on February 20th. The show, which more than a few people were initially skeptical about, went on to become a success for A&E. While the series began to lose some steam around season two or three, it’s now coming to a close with season five, which creators Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Kerry Ehrin (Friday Night Lights) had always envisioned. Actor, singer and artist Rihanna is a part of the final season, and she’s co-starring as Marion Crane, famously played by Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock‘s Psycho.

Below, get your first look at Rihanna in Bates Motel.

Ocean's 8 (header)

One of New York’s interesting little quirks is that just about everyone takes the train. Even, apparently, criminal masterminds on their way to stage a multimillion-dollar heist at one of the glitziest events of the year. At least that’s my takeaway from our first look at Ocean’s 8, which puts Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) and her crew (including characters played by Cate BlanchettSarah Paulson, and Anne Hathaway) on an MTA subway car. Check it out below.  Read More »

bates motel season 5 trailer

The producer and co-creator of Bates MotelCarlton Cuse (Lost), never thought Bates Motel was a story that needed eight or nine seasons. Cuse and co-creator Kerry Ehrin (Friday Night Lights) saw the show coming to an end after season five, which A&E and all involved are indeed planning to do. The show returns next month for its last season, which features actor/singer Rihanna in a key supporting role.

Below, watch the Bates Motel season five trailer. Spoilers follow.
