joker origin movie

Todd Phillips‘s origin movie about Gotham City’s Clown Prince of Crime now has an official title: Joker. Looks like the film took Sean Parker’s advice and dropped the “the.” (It’s cleaner.) They’re moving quickly on this one, because Joker, which stars Joaquin Phoenix, is coming to theaters next year.

Meanwhile, the wait to see Quentin Tarantino‘s new movie just got a couple of weeks shorter. Sony Pictures has shifted some release dates around on its calendar, and the result is a new Once Upon a Time in Hollywood release date, the long-delayed adaptation of The Crow biting the dust for seemingly the hundredth time, and some other additions that fans of Little Women and the Valiant comic Bloodshot might be interested to learn about.

the Equalizer 2 review

It’s fairly cold comfort that The Equalizer 2 is an improvement on its 2014 predecessor. That film’s director and star, Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington, have returned for this follow-up, which is largely more of the same. The first film was exceedingly dour, grim and gratuitously violent, with Washington’s Robert McCall laying waste to all sorts of faceless baddies. This time around, while the reasons why McCall has to fend off bad guys hit closer to home, much of the story is predictable and Fuqua’s unable to rein in the film to a more manageable length. All told, this manages to be a bit better simply by not being that excessive.

the dark knight imax

Ten years ago, The Dark Knight changed the way we would see superhero movies. And it also changed the way that IMAX cameras would be used in mega-blockbusters. In 2008, director Christopher Nolan made the radical choice to shoot select sequences from the movie in IMAX, making The Dark Knight the first major feature film to use IMAX 70mm film. It was a joy to behold in theaters — and now you can experience it again.

The Dark Knight is returning to IMAX 70mm theaters for a limited engagement in honor of the superhero film’s 10th anniversary. But it’s only in four select locations across the continent.
