greenland release

Is this a sign of things to come? Or just a smart business decision? Greenland, the latest disaster pic featuring Gerard Butler, will now open overseas before it comes to American shores. This is a relatively small production from STX Films, but larger studios – like Warner Bros. – might soon be taking similar approaches to big movies.

Olympus Has Fallen and Den of Thieves Sequel

The movie business is in rough shape right now. Christopher Nolan’s Tenet just got pushed back again, this time to mid-August, and we’re not even sure if the movie will be able to meet that release date. But fear not, because Hollywood is still set on getting back to work in the near future. And when the cameras start rolling, it sounds like there will be Den of Thieves and Angel Has Fallen sequels, with Gerard Butler waiting to help resurrect cinema with a bang. Read More »

my spy review

It appears to be the unfortunate rite of passage for every sports star who makes the leap to Hollywood: they must star in at least one generic kiddy movie that usually features a precocious prepubescent co-star and maybe a dog. Vin Diesel had the abominable The Pacificer, Dwayne Johnson put on wings for the rotten Tooth Fairy, and most recently, John Cena paid his dues with Playing With Fire.

But Dave Bautista‘s chameleonic early roles suggested that this former WWE fighter would go a different route than his fellow meatheads-turned-actors. He went against expectations with his first roles, breaking out in a big way with his stoic stooge Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy, and impressing in subdued supporting roles in Blade Runner 2049 and Spectre. He avoided taking the lead in underwhelming action thrillers that Diesel, Cena, and even Johnson, had eagerly signed on for early in their careers.

Edge of Seventeen Series Canceled

Back in 2018, YouTube ordered a series pilot for a television adaptation of the indie darling The Edge of Seventeen. The film starred Hailee Steinfeld as high school junior Nadie as she deals with her own awkwardness, the trials and tribulations of teen life, and the complications of her best friend starting to date her older brother. But the YouTube series pilot brought in Orphan star Isabelle Fuhrmann to play a new character named Mira, who would have endured some of the same struggles. Unfortunately, YouTube won’t be moving forward with an order for the Edge of Seventeen series. Read More »

Night Wolf director

A decade before Josh Trank’s disastrous Fantastic Four film hit theaters, director Tim Story tackled Marvel’s First Family in a colorful, breezy, largely forgettable comic book movie. He directed a sequel two years later and has since been out of the superhero realm altogether, but now it looks like he’s found his re-entry point.

Story is currently in negotiations to direct Night Wolf, which will reunite him with his frequent star Kevin Hart and aims to put a new spin on cinematic superhero storytelling.
