Welcome to Marwen - Steve Carell

Director Robert Zemeckis has been working on an adaptation of the 2010 documentary Marwencol since 2013, and his fictionalized version of the true story, entitled Welcome to Marwen, is finally coming to the big screen this December with Steve Carell in the lead role. The first trailer came out almost a month ago and didn’t give us high hopes for the project, but Universal has released a new one today that implemented one major change that makes all the difference in the world. Check out the latest Welcome to Marwen trailer below. Read More »

mamma mia here we go again reviews

No one was clamoring for a sequel to 2008’s Mamma Mia, the smash-hit jukebox musical based on the popular Broadway play. It was campy, kitschy, and just the right thing to put on in the background as you drank rosé and and reminisced of the glory days of ABBA. And yet, 10 years later, here comes a sequel as dazzling and dedicated to joy as the first one was. And critics say that it could melt our cold, cynical hearts.

The Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again reviews are here and, despite a healthy heaping of cynicism from the critics going into the films, they found themselves tapping their feet to the music. It’s a silly, solid sequel that just may be what we need in these trying times.

See what critics are saying in their Mamma Mia Here We Go Again reviews below.

hellboy 2 netflix

When Hellboy (Ron Perlman) turns to his friend and partner in world-saving, Abe Sapien (Doug Jones) and notices an album collection of popular love songs, he remarks “Abe…you fell for the Princess?” To which the humanoid fish creature answers: “She…she’s like me! A creature from another world…”

And in the summer of 2008 (a time in which I was a high school senior and was contemplating my future), I connected more with Abe in that moment than I ever had before. For I too was in love with “a creature” from another world. A cinematic world. It was the Hellboy movie franchise, but specifically Hellboy II: The Golden Army.

disability in skyscraper

I initially had little interest in watching Skyscraper, the new action adventure feature starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. I hadn’t watched any of the trailers and knew little more than “It’s Die Hard starring the Rock.” I had even more trepidation upon discovering Johnson’s character, Will Sawyer, is a disabled man with a prosthetic leg. As a disabled writer, I worried how the movie would use disability. Would the Rock be a man with a magical leg that did all manner of things? Would the disability be considered a curse his character resented until it benefited him personally? But in the end, Skyscraper, a B-movie throwback, might have actually given me a portrait of disability I supported.

Skyscraper follows Will Sawyer, an American security consultant traveling with his family to Hong Kong. Will’s job is to check the safety protocols of a new high-rise building called The Pearl. But when The Pearl is set on fire by a gang of mercenaries, Will must find a way to get into the building to save his wife and children.

skyscraper trailer

/Film happened to interview Rawson Marshall Thurber at TCA last summer as he was getting ready to film Skyscraper. Based on the premise, we asked him if it was “Die Hard in a building” and he jokingly agreed it was.

Dwayne Johnson plays Will Sawyer, a security analyst helping to launch The Pearl, the world’s tallest building, in Hong Kong. When terrorists set fire to The Pearl with Will’s wife Sarah (Neve Campbell) and children (McKenna Roberts, Noah Cottrell) inside, Will has to get back into the building and rescue them while the Hong Kong police think he is involved in starting the blaze. It’s The Rock’s most heroic role yet, full of hold-your-breath action sequences. It’s the perfect summer movie.

Thurber spoke with /Film by phone out of New York for a full interview on Skyscraper to talk about how he made a big movie worthy of a big screen. Skyscraper is in theaters this Friday.

jurassic park the chaos gene

As a huge tabletop gamer, it brings me much pleasure that Mondo has been dipping their toes into the board game space. Last year, they teamed up with USAopoly for the hidden traitor game The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 and this year they are announcing Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene. Today, Mondo has released our first look at the game’s miniatures and have revealed some of the game’s mechanics. Some of these details have me excited, but others have me feeling a bit…skeptical.
