Villains trailer

A young couple (It‘s Bill Skarsgärd and It Follows‘ Maika Monroe) robs a gas station and scores enough cash to start a new life in Florida, but wouldn’t you know it: their getaway car runs out of gas. When they break into a fancy house looking for another vehicle to take them the rest of the way, they end up stumbling on much more than they bargained for in the new thriller Villains.

Following the horrendous snubbing of Lee Chang-dong’s Burning last year, South Korea is going for round 2 in the country’s attempt to get its first-ever Oscar nomination. South Korea has submitted Parasite as its contender for the Best International Feature Film category at the 2020 Academy Awards. If Bong Joon-ho‘s black comedy earns one of the five slots, that would make it South Korea’s first-ever Oscar nomination.

breaking bad movie

Earlier this summer, Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul had the internet aflutter when they began posting pictures of two donkeys, and then the two actors hanging out together, sparking speculation that they could be shooting the upcoming Breaking Bad movie. It turned out to be a false alarm – the photos were to promote their new mezcal company.

But now actor Bob Odenkirk, who played a supporting role on the acclaimed crime drama and stars on the AMC prequel series Better Call Saul, says the upcoming movie has already been filmed. Read his comments below.

disney box office record

The Walt Disney Company has made some changes to their calendar of upcoming feature film releases, starting with the delay of the live-action spin-off Cruella, based on the villain of the same name from 101 Dalmatians. But the more interesting news is the three Fox titles that Disney will be releasing in 2020, and two of them don’t really sound like they’re going to do Disney any favors at the box office. Get the updated Disney movie release dates and details on each of the projects below. Read More »

Bill Tench looks like he has the world weighing on his shoulders in season two of Mindhunter. The hunch, the looks of worry and distress, you can feel the restrained F.B.I. agent often coming so close to breaking, especially during a stunning scene in which he confronts, not questions, Charles Manson. The character remains endlessly fascinating to watch, as does the rest of Mindhunter.

Season two marks another one of the many collaborations between actor Holt McCallany and director David Fincher, which is a relationship going back to Alien 3. In-person, McCallany is just as captivating as he is on screen. He has such a great voice, so after hanging onto his every word during our interview with him, I left the Mindhunter junket thinking, “No wonder David Fincher loves filming this guy.” Today, he’s perhaps the closest we have to old school actors like, to name an example, Burt Lancaster, sharing a similar combination of authority and vulnerability. McCallany looks and sounds like a movie star straight out of the ’50s, making him all the more perfect for Bill Tench.

I only saw a handful of episodes before speaking with the actor, hence no questions about the scene with Charles Manson, but he discussed with us the Son of Sam sequence, his longtime collaboration with David Fincher, and Bill Tench’s worldview.

Searching 2

Update: Searching director Aneesh Chaganty has shared a bit more information about the film. Check it out below.

Searching, last year’s indie hit starring John Cho as a father who desperately tries to find his missing daughter, is getting a follow-up.

A new report says Searching 2 is in the works – although it appears the new movie will not follow the ongoing adventures of the Kim family, because Cho and his co-stars from the original film apparently won’t be coming back to reprise their roles. Thankfully, though, writer/director Aneesh Chaganty, co-writer/producer Sev Ohanian, and producer Natalie Qasabian are all back on board. Read More »

traphouse

If you take a look at Dave Bautista‘s filmography over the past ten years or so, you’ll find a mixture of high profile franchise projects (including the highest grossing movie ever) and low budget action flicks, a mixture that has given him a chance to stretch himself as a performer and lead some B-movies while honing his strengths. In other words, Bautista is putting in the work, and he’s quietly establishing himself between Marvel projects.

And while the actor already has several things already in the pipeline (including Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Dune), a new report says he’s found another new movie project to star in and produce: an undercover thriller called Traphouse, which is written by the guy who wrote 2001’s The Fast and The Furious.
