John Boyega to Lead They Cloned Tyrone

Later this year, we’ll see John Boyega back in space in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. We’re not sure what his future in a galaxy far, far away holds after that, but over at Netflix, he’ll be playing with a different kind of sci-fi as the lead of one of their new original movies.

They Cloned Tyrone is said to be a “pulpy, sci-fi mystery caper” that has been described as being something akin to Friday mixed with Get Out. John Boyega will be taking the lead role, which was previously in the hands of Widows and If Beale Street Could Talk co-star Brian Tyree Henry. Find out more about the movie below. Read More »

russell crowe thriller

Russell Crowe has had his brush with horror with the critical and commercial catastrophe that was The Mummy (RIP Dark Universe), and is now teaming up with Scream writer and producer Kevin Williamson to star in a very meta supernatural thriller.

Octavia Spencer stars as this podcaster in Truth Be Told, the upcoming Apple TV+ crime series that posits the question: what if Serial actually came up with a concrete answer?

el camino early buzz

When we last saw Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman, inarguably the most tragic character in Breaking Bad‘s Shakespearean tragedy, he had escaped from Walter White’s massacre of the neo-Nazis that had held him captive — free, feral, and driving onto the open road in an El Camino. It was the closest thing to a happy ending that creator Vince Gilligan could give one of his characters.

Now El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie fills in what happens after in an epilogue that, according to critics, gives Jesse the ending he deserves. But is it the ending that Breaking Bad needed? The El Camino early buzz is out, and the critics are mixed on that.

the king's man new york comic-con 2019

Matthew Vaughn is no stranger to taking a beloved property and crafting a fresh, energetic origin story out of it. But this time, with The King’s Man, he gets to do it to his own movies. Vaughn’s Kingsman films, loosely based off of Mark Millar’s comic books, followed a fictional secret service organization that presented a hyperviolent twist on the concept of the gentleman spy. With his upcoming action spy film, The King’s Man, Vaughn gets to explore the origins of that secret service organization while paying homage to classic cinema.

Vaughn took the stage at 20th Century Fox’s New York Comic-Con panel Thursday with the stars of his upcoming film The King’s ManRalph Fiennes, Harris Dickinson, and Djimon Hounsou. Here’s what we learned at The King’s Man New York Comic-Con 2019 panel.

parasite trailer

You don’t need to know much going into Parasite. In fact, it’s been recommended that you know as little as possible. And despite the growing hype around Bong Joon-Ho‘s Palme D’Or winner, the details around his social thriller’s twists and turns have remained largely a mystery.

But NEON doesn’t have to work too hard to sell this pitch-black satire — the critics have already done the work for them. The newest Parasite trailer is jam-packed with raves from critics calling the film a “masterpiece” (several times!) and all sorts of colorful adjectives that all boil down to: this movie will be great. Watch the new Parasite trailer below.

the gentlemen trailer

Despite what its title implies, The Gentlemen is not afraid to get a little dirty. The poster for the Guy Ritchie crime comedy seems to suggest some sort of riff on Kingsman or even the director’s sleek 2015 spy thriller The Man from U.N.C.L.E. But with the release of its first trailer, The Gentlemen may in fact be a bit of an ironic title.

Originally named Toff GuysThe Gentlemen is more of a throwback to Ritchie’s grimy crime capers like Snatch and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. Matthew McConaughey leads an all-star cast in The Gentlemen as a notorious American drug lord who finds himself embroiled in a London territory war. Watch The Gentlemen trailer below.
