This weekend the Telluride Film Festival is getting a sneak peek at some of the movies that will be hitting the festival circuit in the coming weeks. A good amount of them had already debuted at the Venice Film Festival this past week, but one that we hadn’t yet heard anything about yet was the political drama The Front Runner, directed by Jason Reitman and starring Hugh Jackman. That changed today.
After the first trailer for The Front Runner debuted earlier this week, audiences got to see Hugh Jackman in action as the leading candidate for President of the United States of America as the nominee for the Democratic party in 1988 who destroyed his chances at victory with a little scandal. So what do the first reactions out of Telluride have to say? Find out below. Read More »
Next month, you can see John C. Reilly alongside Joaquin Phoenix in the western thriller The Sisters Brothers. But there’s a different pair of brothers that fans would like to see back on the big screen.
Step Brothers, starring John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell as forty-something step brothers still living at home with their recently married parents, became a comedy hit back in 2008 with just over $100 million at the box office, but it’s found even greater life in the years since. You can’t go anywhere without hearing quotes from the movie, whether it’s “Did we just become best friends?” or “It’s the fuckin’ Catalina Wine Mixer.” And because of that, fans have wanted a sequel.
John C. Reilly isn’t quite as enthusiastic as viewers when it comes to sequels in general, but he still hopes that he doesn’t age out of the chance to make it happen with his buddy Will Ferrell and the increasingly eclectic director Adam McKay. Read More »

The announcement of a Sicario sequel was met with some raised eyebrows. How do you follow up Denis Villeneuve‘s powerful, gripping drama about the escalating war on drugs – and do so without the return of Villeneuve, cinematographer Roger Deakins, or star Emily Blunt? Early marketing for Sicario: Day of the Soldado was a bit confused as well, with some trailers suggesting that it was a morally gray prestige thriller in the vein of the first film while others showcased a bombastic action movie.
Fans were understandably skeptical about the sequel directed by Stefano Sollima, but the Sicario Day of the Soldado early buzz proves that their worries were unfounded. Here are what critics have to say about the new movie.

A sequel to the 2015 adaptation of R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps book series has been in the works for a few years now. However, the title of the sequel has remained in flux, gestating from Goosebumps: HorrorLand, referencing a specific location in the Goosebumps universe, to Goosebumps: Slappy Halloween, as a nod to the possessed ventriloquist dummy named Slappy. But now the title has changed once more, and it’s a little more generic.
The Goosebumps sequel arriving this fall has been given the official title of Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween, as revealed during the Sony Pictures panel at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. Does this new title provide any idea as to what the sequel will be about? Read More »
