Creed 2 Director

A few months ago, Sylvester Stallone revealed on his Instagram page that he would be directing Creed 2, the follow-up to Ryan Coogler‘s acclaimed Rocky spin-off from 2015. The silence that followed was deafening and now it seems like we know why – he’s not directing it. In fact, a brand new director whose name and work you probably don’t know is stepping behind the camera.

The best Movies Streaming November

(Welcome to Now Stream This, a column dedicated to the best movies streaming on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every other streaming service out there.) 

Break out the cranberry sauce: it’s almost time for Thanksgiving. Soon you’ll be forced to sit at a table with your family and have a conversation. How terrifying! My advice: skip all that and stream some movies. If your family complains, advise them to sit down and stream the movies along with you. It’s win-win! Also, bring beer.

You don’t have to force a conversation with movies; you just have to watch them. Isn’t that glorious? Of course, with the ever-growing list of streaming services out there, it can be hard to pick a specific film to watch for your own specific needs. But since I’m such a nice guy, and it is the season of giving, I went ahead and assembled a cornucopia of great films for you to stream in the next few days. There’s stuff(ing) here from David Lynch, Guillermo del Toro, Ryan Coogler, and more! We’ve got horror, family films, fantasy, romance, action – you name it! So get ready to binge on these films, but make sure you save room for leftovers. Here are the best movies streaming right now! So let’s get streaming.

Black Panther Comic-Con Panel

But that’s why we’re here. We’ve got you covered. Here’s what you need to know.

Wrong Answer

Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan are two of the most exciting collaborators working in Hollywood today because they’re telling stories from a perspective that doesn’t align with what the industry unfortunately considers the default (ie. stories from a white male POV). Creed, their entry into the Rocky franchise, was one of the best blockbusters of 2015, but go back and watch 2013’s Fruitvale Station for the best sense of how they approach storytelling from a unique angle. And the pair is also working together on next year’s Black Panther, which could be one of the biggest films of 2018.

Now, word has come out that the director and actor are reuniting for another smaller scale, non-franchise movie called Wrong Answer, based on the real life story from a few years ago of middle school teachers caught in an epic cheating scandal.

Black Panther Concept Art

We’ve still got a full year until Black Panther hits theaters, but production is underway on the first solo outing for the African superhero who was added to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War. While the first official stills haven’t been unveiled just yet, a sneak peek at what we might see from the movie has arrived in the form of concept art.

The home video release of Doctor Strange has a sneak peek at the movies coming down the line in Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and that includes Chadwick Boseman‘s franchise starter. The Black Panther concept art gives us a much better look at T’Challa’s homeland known as Wakanda, both the jungle and the sleek city. Read More »

the batman director

Yesterday, Ben Affleck stepped down from directing The Batman. One day, someone is going to write a book explaining exactly what was going on behind-the-scenes at Warner Bros. that led to this revolving door of filmmakers on all of their projects. We’ll surely know someday. But not today.

So today is a day of speculation. As Matt Reeves and Mat Ross emerge as apparent frontrunners, it’s time to do that thing where we make a list of people who should direct the next Batman movie. Some of these names are totally plausible. Some are wishful thinking. Others are here just because the thought of them directing a big-budget superhero movie makes me giggle uncontrollably. Most of all, this an excuse for us to just goof off and daydream while Warner Bros. figures everything out.
