Charlie Kaufman is back with I’m Thinking of Ending Things, a creepy story of a young woman who takes a trip to meet her boyfriend’s parents. Sounds harmless enough, right? Well…just wait. The film is an adaptation of the haunting Iain Reid novel of the same name, and features Jessie Buckley, Jesse Plemons, Toni Collette, and David Thewlis. The first trailer for the film just arrived, and you can check it out below.

Pinocchio Remake Tom Hanks

Disney’s live-action Pinocchio remake might be a reunion for Robert Zemeckis and Tom Hanks. Zemeckis is attached to helm the film and now a report states that Hanks is being courted to play old Italian puppet-maker Geppetto. This isn’t the first time Hanks’ name has been floated for the part – when the project was first announced, Paddington director Paul King was set to helm and Hanks was being considered for the Geppetto role then as well.

It’s James Gunn‘s birthday, and while that’s not exactly the type of story we’d consider “newsworthy,” we’re going to mark the occasion by sharing this silly-but-fun video featuring The Suicide Squad cast wishing their director a happy birthday. Don’t expect anything from the actual movie here (except for Margot Robbie briefly using her Harley Quinn voice), but do expect to see a lot of disheveled-looking actors talking directly into the camera while also clutching their tiny dogs.

The video also reveals the new and very stylish title treatment for the film, which you can see above.

raised by wolves trailer

The first trailer for Raised by Wolves is here, and what a fine trailer it is. It’s a bad idea to overhype stuff based on a trailer, but I have to admit, this looks wild and different, and that’s pretty exciting. In this sci-fi series from executive producer Ridley Scott, a group of human children is being raised by two androids on a strange planet. But all is not as it seems.  Read More »

mimic tv series

At long last, the worlds of Guillermo del Toro and Paul WS Anderson will collide! Mimic, del Toro’s American debut film, is now being turned into a TV series, with Anderson directing the pilot. As for del Toro, he has absolutely nothing to do with the TV show, which makes sense, since the experience of making the film was a constant battle, leading the filmmaker to disown the theatrical cut (a director’s cut was eventually released on Blu-ray). In the film, mutated insects prey upon hapless humans. It’s pretty gross.

quarantine stream destroyer

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Movie: The Destroyer

Where You Can Stream It: Hulu

The Pitch: A near-unrecognizable Nicole Kidman is a hard-boiled cop haunted by a violent tragedy in her past.

Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: It still boggles my mind that Destroyer seemed to come and go without much attention. The film has a meager 74% on Rotten Tomatoes and was ultimately a box office bomb. And yet…I’m going to go ahead and throw the word “masterpiece” out there. Because that’s what this is. Director Karyn Kusama brings a mix of unbearable tension and melancholy pathos, crafting a harsh, brutal LA noir flick that features one of Nicole Kidman’s very best performances.
