In April of 2019, actor Robert Pattinson teased that his upcoming collaboration with director Christopher Nolan was “the craziest thing [he’s] seen in years” and “the length of three movies.” While we anxiously await seeing Nolan’s new spy thriller Tenet for ourselves to determine if it is also the craziest thing we’ve seen in years, the latter part of Pattinson’s comment is being called into question. The Tenet runtime has just been revealed by the Korean Media Rating Board, and it turns out the film isn’t some five or six-hour behemoth after all. (Not that anyone realistically expected it to be, but still.)
Here’s how the newly-uncovered runtime compares to the other movies in Nolan’s filmography. Read More »

Bird Box was Netflix’s big winter event movie just before Christmas back in 2018. Sandra Bullock starred in the adaptation of Josh Malerman‘s sci-fi thriller novel of the same name, which takes place in the aftermath of the decimation of the world’s population by an mysterious entity that compels people to commit suicide, usually in a gruesome fashion, after they’ve laid their eyes upon it.
Through flashbacks we see the beginning of the widespread death as Sandra Bullock tries to find sanctuary with her two kids in tow. Now we’ll see how her story continues because Josh Malerman has confirmed that Netflix is currently developing a sequel based on his follow-up book Malorie, named after Sandra Bullock’s character.

The first season finale of Snowpiercer just aired last night on TNT. The television adaptation of the Titan Comics title takes place eight years before the feature film adaptation from director Bong Joon-ho, so there are a lot of gaps to fill in when it comes to the overall narrative of the post-apocalyptic landscape itself. Last night’s finale brought a number of twists and turns, but the biggest made way for the introduction of Sean Bean as a character who will have a major presence in the second season.
However, learning about his character will require spoilers for the first season. Read More »
Last year, we heard rumblings that Hollywood was considering tackling a The Princess Bride remake. Frankly, that sounded like an awful idea because Rob Reiner’s 1987 movie managed to strike a perfect balance of tones and it seemed unlikely that any new version would be able to recapture its spirit – especially without original writer William Goldman on board (Goldman died in 2018.) Then, a few weeks ago, Jason Reitman (Juno, Ghostbusters: Afterlife) announced that he had recruited an A-list cast for a Princess Bride remake for Quibi that was shot in everyone’s backyards during the coronavirus quarantine, all to help raise money for the World Central Kitchen charity. How could anyone be mad about that?
Now Quibi has released a lengthy clip from the homemade version of the movie on YouTube, so keep scrolling to see an all-star cast recreate the movie’s memorable sword fight, the Man in Black’s confrontation with Fezzik, and the hilarious battle of wits. Read More »
