unpregnant trailer

It seems impossible to make a comedy out of an abortion, but Unpregnant is just the latest film to find humor in the serious situation. Like one homeskillet before her, Haley Lu Richardson plays a teen who finds herself facing one doodle that can’t be undid: a positive pregnancy test. Unwilling to turn to her boyfriend, her best friend, and her super religious parents, Richardson’s Veronica turns to her former best friend (Barbie Ferreira) who begrudgingly embarks on a 1,000-mile road trip to an abortion clinic.

The Banks movie

Steve McQueen’s heist drama Widows didn’t make the box office splash that the filmmakers were hoping for, but can we interest you in a different Chicago-set heist movie about a group of female thieves?

Macro, the company behind 2018’s excellent Sorry to Bother You, is producing a movie adaptation of The Banks, a graphic novel written by author and journalist Roxane Gay. The story sounds similar to Widows, but this one follows three generations of female thieves who team up to pull off one huge score. Gay herself will write the screenplay, which will mark the acclaimed author’s first writing credit for either film or television. Read More »

47 Ronin sequel

Typically, when a movie performs so poorly that it earns a reputation as one of the biggest box office bombs of a given year, it’s a good sign that the film in question won’t be getting a sequel. But inexplicably, that maxim does not seem to apply to the 2013 Keanu Reeves film 47 Ronin, because that movie is getting a cyberpunk sequel set 300 years in the future. Read More »
