birds of prey poster

A fun, colorful Birds of Prey poster just flew online, and I won’t lie: I dig it. I have no idea how Cathy Yan‘s upcoming DC film will turn out, but here’s hoping it’s as fun and vibrant as this poster, which puts Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn front and center while the rest of the cast flutters around her in a much smaller scale. See the poster below.

Creepshow review

In 1982, horror legends George A. Romero and Stephen King came together for Creepshow, a stylish, silly, scary horror anthology that paid tribute to the EC horror comics of the ’50s.

And Creepshow, the entertaining new anthology show from horror streaming service Shudder, doesn’t even try, for better and worse. There are plenty of thrills and chills to be had, but one can’t help but miss the slick style that made Romero’s movie so memorable.

Another weekend has ended, which means two things: one, we all have to return to the drudgery of work. And two, the weekend box office results are in. While there were a few new contenders at the multiplex, Pennywise and the Losers’ Club held fast with It Chapter Two staying at number one. But the highly-acclaimed Hustlers had a great weekend, too, exceeding expectations. The same can’t be said for the prestige drama The Goldfinch, which could not take flight in the wake of scathing TIFF reviews.

joaquin phoenix joker

Joaquin Phoenix has spent the last few years in indie films, which made his attachment to Joker, a big, dark comic book movie from Warner Bros., a bit surprising. And it sounds like Phoenix was just as surprised himself.

Our own Peter Sciretta attended a recent Q&A with Phoenix and director Todd Phillips following an early screening of the film and the two talked about the non-traditional way the actor finally joined the project.
