the world to come trailer

Another year, another doomed lesbian period romance. At least, that’s what we’re going to assume considering the track record of LGBTQ feature romances following 2019’s Portrait of a Lady on Fire, which appears to have kicked off a trend of lesbian romances set exclusively in the past, primarily featuring slim white women. But it is admittedly hard to resist a movie starring both acting heavyhitters Katherine Waterston and Vanessa Kirby. Watch The World to Come trailer below.

HBO Max Sizzle Reel

Warner Bros. Pictures is shaking up the theatrical release model this year by releasing their entire movie slate simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max for a limited time. Wonder Woman 1984 was the first to try out this strategy, but the studio wanted to take it much further by sending movies like Godzilla vs. Kong, Mortal Kombat, Space Jam: A New Legacy, The Suicide Squad, and more to the streaming service. Now a new HBO Max sizzle reel teases all the same-day premieres coming throughout 2021. Read More »

What Would Sophia Loren Do Trailer

Sophia Loren, the famous Italian actress who made everyone pop their eyes out of their heads like a Tex Avery cartoon character, is the subject of the new documentary short What Would Sophia Loren Do? Sort of. This isn’t really a doc about Loren – instead, it’s about Nancy “Vincenza” Kulik, an Italian-American mother and grandmother living in Fort Lee, New Jersey who has based her philosophy of life around what Loren may or may not do in certain situations. It looks pretty darn charming.

Godzilla vs Kong Streaming Release

Godzilla vs. Kong has been delayed several times over the past year, but the most recent delay from November 2020 came as a direct result of the coronavirus pandemic. Though movie theaters likely aren’t going to be back at their normal operating capacity in this first half of 2021, that’s not stopping Warner Bros. Pictures from releasing the movie during that window. That’s because of their new release plan to send all of their movies into theaters and onto HBO Max simultaneously. In fact, Warner Bros. just bumped up the Godzilla vs. Kong release date to March, two months earlier than originally planned. Read More »

This Week in Trailers

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising?

This week, we free ourselves from convention, lay some cable, get kidnapped, find ourselves fighting in Russia, and see how far up the government ladder a murder conspiracy goes.

Liam Neeson retiring from action movies

Liam Neeson has had a strange career. For the longest time, he was thought of as a serious dramatic performer – the type of actor who starred in titles like Schindler’s List. Then came Taken, the 2008 flick that inexplicably turned Neeson into an action hero. Ever since TakenNeeson has stuck with his action star status – a move that sometimes backfired, like when the bleak drama The Grey was incorrectly marketed as a movie about Neeson fist-fighting some wolves instead of the harrowing meditation on death that it actually was. Now, it looks like Neeson is ready to retire from action films Then again…he’s said that before.
