regal cinemas future

The future of Regal Cinemas is looking pretty grim. Cineworld Group, the exhibition giant and parent company to Regal, reported a loss of a whopping $1.6 billion in the first half of 2020, with “no certainty” as to what impact the pandemic could have on the company in the future.

The Knick, one of the best shows of the 21st century, is coming back.

The Undoing Trailer

Despite some reported creative woes behind the scenes, Nicole Kidman clearly loved teaming up with creator David E. Kelley on HBO’s Big Little Lies, because she’s stepping back into the world of murder mystery among the upper class with the new limited series The Undoing.

Based on Jean Hanff Korelitz’s New York Times best-selling book You Should Have Known, HBO’s The Undoing follows a successful therapist, Grace Fraser (Kidman), along with her husband, Jonathan (Hugh Grant, who’s been taking some tantalizingly seedier roles recently), and their young son (Noah Jupe), who attends an elite private school in New York City. But suddenly, all of their lives are shaken up by a violent murder, and her husband seems to be the primary suspect. Watch the trailer below. Read More »

Creating the Razor Crest

The Razor Crest, the ship from The Mandalorian, gets its close-up in a new behind-the-scenes video from ILM. While so much of modern filmmaking relies on CGI, The Mandalorian team actually went a little old school here and built a model they could use for filming. They still used a digital version of the ship as well, but it’s still neat to see the show resorting to classic modelmaking methods as well.

Limbo Review

Frank Zappa famously said “there is no Hell, there is only France.” If that’s true, there’s a strong case to be made that a bleak island off the Scottish coast may well be the perfect place to host purgatory. In Limbo, Ben Sharrokck’s dramedy about life as an asylum seeker, we get to spend time in this state between the horror of what’s been left behind and the interminable wait for what’s yet to come.
