You can’t fault Clifford The Big Red Dog for being exactly what it says on the tin. At least, according to the first teaser for the upcoming family film, which features…a big, red dog. The live-action Paramount movie based on the beloved Scholastic book character, Clifford The Big Red Dog brings Clifford to the real world, where — surprise! — he looks a little weird.

Last week, WarnerMedia made the surprising and unprecedented decision to release Patty Jenkins‘ highly anticipated superhero sequel Wonder Woman 1984 into theaters on Christmas Day and also simultaneously release it on HBO Max in the United States. (I say “unprecedented” because this is the first time a mega-budgeted superhero film will be put straight onto a streaming service and subscribers will not be charged extra to watch it.)
But when will you get to see the movie if you’re not in the U.S.? And if you are in the States, exactly how long will you need to be on guard to dodge spoilers? Check out a list of the international Wonder Woman 1984 release dates below.

Along with the excitement of the first live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian arriving last year, fans were treated to a bonus with a full-fledged making-of documentary series called Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian. It sounds like Disney will continue the behind-the-scenes sneak peeks as a second season of the documentary appears to be slated to debut after the second season finale, giving fans a nice little Christmas present.

The first thing you should know about the new film Superintelligence is that it’s being distributed by the WarnerMedia empire. Second, you should know that WarnerMedia does not have ownership in The Late Late Show with James Corden, though the very existence of Superintelligence would seem to imply otherwise. Ostensibly, this comedy is about an average citizen being thrown into a situation where only she can save humanity from a mysterious artificial intelligence. But Superintelligence is weirdly committed to convincing its audience that James Corden is so great and likable and funny, an argument that gets harder to believe as the film goes on.

Katee Sackhoff made her triumphant return to Star Wars by reprising her role as Bo-Katan Kryze in live-action for the first time in a recent episode of The Mandalorian. Though we got the jump on the character’s move from the animated side of Star Wars to live-action, seeing Bo-Katan fly into action wearing her full Mandalorian armor was quite a treat.
/Film was pleased to chat with Katee Sackhoff about the thrill and challenges that came with bringing Bo-Katan to life in a more complete way after she only previously voiced the character in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. Plus, we asked whether she has held the Darksaber, and how much she knows about what Bo-Katan has been up to in the years before The Mandalorian.

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)
The Movie: Tesla
Where You Can Stream It: Hulu
The Pitch: A biopic of Nikola Tesla that avoids the standard biopic trappings.
Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: Tesla had a very, very limited release, and now it’s streaming on Hulu – which is the perfect opportunity for people to discover it. The story of Nikola Tesla has been covered on film before – be it in Christopher Nolan’s The Prestige, or the recent The Current War. But Michael Almereyda’s take on the great inventor bucks tradition and goes for a weirder, more surreal approach to Tesla’s life. It’s an approach other filmmakers making biopics would be wise to try for themselves rather than giving us the same old boring crap. Read More »

Netflix has been gunning for the Best Picture Academy Award for years, funneling lots of money and resources into the dream of standing on stage at the Dolby Theatre and accepting the top prize of the film world.
