abominable trailer

Hollywood works in cycles, which means there is indeed a third animated yeti movie coming to theaters in the span of a year. But Dreamworks’ Abominable looks like it deserves much, much more than to be fodder for a meme.

On the heels of Warner Animation’s Smallfoot and Laika’s Missing Link comes Abominable, an animated film about a girl in modern-day Shanghai who accidentally stumbles upon a yeti separated from its homeland. Hijinks ensue and money gets made, right? Not so fast — Abominable promises to be more than a hackneyed kid’s film aiming at the lowest common denominator. A culturally rich approach coupled with soaring, achingly gorgeous animation that recalls the best of Dreamworks‘ acclaimed How to Train Your Dragon series makes Abominable look anything but. Watch the Abominable trailer below.

doctor who season 12 images

With the Doctor’s regeneration from Peter Capaldi into Jodie Whittaker in the 11th season of the Doctor Who revival, the series got its own facelift, with all-new planets and all-new monsters introduced to the show. But despite Whittaker’s enthusiastic turn as the 13th Doctor and a few standout episodesDoctor Who just didn’t feel like Doctor Who anymore. This could be blamed on the lack of old villains, with the exception of the return of the Daleks in the New Year’s Day special. However, it seems like showrunner Chris Chibnall is loosening his “no old monsters” policy.

A sneak peek at the next season through two new Doctor Who season 12 images show Whittaker face-to-face with a Judoon platoon — though they’re likely not on the moon.

john wick action

In an era where action has become a secondary device used to prop up character and stories, it would be easy to dismiss the John Wick movies as mindless action movie fun. But if you look beyond the gore and the high body counts, each John Wick film, including the latest release John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, deliver immaculately choreographed, indescribably intense sequences that deserve spots in the action movie hall of fame.

But the feverish, frenetic Keanu Reeves-led films directed by Chad Stahelski have done more than elevate headshots into high art. The John Wick films have managed to distill the essence of great action films from around the world — in loving homage to Hong Kong cop movies, to Korean thrillers, to Indonesian martial arts movies — and accomplish what most Hollywood movies still struggle to do: make the action part of the storytelling.

Spoilers for the John Wick movies follow.

jj abrams star wars the rise of skywalker

With the Star Wars films constantly changing hands from director to director, it’s difficult for some filmmakers to be beholden to fan expectations.

J.J. Abrams, who returns to direct Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker after introducing the sci-fi franchise to a new generation with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is feeling that pressure, especially on the heels of the rule-breaking, fandom-dividing film that was Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And while some are concerned that he may fall back on the rosy nostalgia that made The Force Awakens such a mammoth success, Abrams hints that he might be going rogue with the final film in the Skywalker Saga.
