In an unusual move for the typically-secretive company, J.J. Abrams‘ Bad Robot Productions has announced six new films are in development, including a possession film and a time travel movie. How many of these are actually secret Cloverfield movies? All of them! (I’m kidding, we have no idea.)
But the one I’m the most excited about is a thriller written by Megan Amram, the writer behind some of the best and funniest shows on television. Learn more about these upcoming Bad Robot movies below. Read More »
We’re quickly approaching the end of the year, and Searching, the thrilling mystery that unfolds across computer screens, remains one of my favorite films of 2018. If you missed the movie during its theatrical run, you have the opportunity to catch it now because it’s just arrived on home video.
To celebrate its release, Sony Pictures Entertainment has released a new Searching easter egg video that points us to even more references, nods, and clues about the villain that were hidden in plain sight. Plus, a separate video has surfaced that reveals one of the movie’s most random easter eggs: an alien invasion taking place in the background. Did you spot any of these the first time around?

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to new Blu-ray releases and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)
Remember, kids: heroes live forever, but physical media never dies. This week’s Blu-ray round-up has Spike Lee‘s brilliant and infuriating BlacKkKlansman, the melancholy Disney film Christopher Robin, the cinematic firecracker that is Blindspotting, and Jason Statham fighting a big CGI shark in The Meg. Sure, streaming is great – but you just can’t beat the experience of physical media.
Here are the new Blu-ray releases and their special features you should check out this week and beyond.

If you read that headline and thought, “I’ve already seen Shaun of the Dead,” that’s totally fair. However, the premise for a new indie thriller called Zoo takes things beyond an imitation of the beloved Edgar Wright comedy. You see, this couple being stuck together is only one half of the story. As the two get comfortable while waiting to be rescued, their softer side convinces them to let another couple in for safety. What follows is a standoff to see which couple can tolerate each other longer before taking matters into their own hands.

The word “visionary” gets thrown around a lot in the entertainment industry, but Jason Blum is truly one of Hollywood’s most visionary film producers. Over the past twelve years, he popularized a business model that slashes filmmaking costs, gives directors the type of creative control they often don’t find elsewhere, and rakes in serious profits if the movie proves to be a hit.
Aided by the recent success of David Gordon Green’s new Halloween movie, Blumhouse has officially crossed the $4 billion mark at the global box office. Read on for some of Blum’s thoughts about possible sequels to Halloween and Get Out. Read More »

Over the course of five incredible seasons, Breaking Bad put its cast of characters through the wringer. But no one suffered quite like Aaron Paul‘s Jesse Pinkman, the meth-dealing loser who lost everything (and everyone) that mattered to him simply because he was unfortunate enough to enter the orbit of Walter White.
And his suffering isn’t over yet. /Film has learned that the newly announced Breaking Bad movie will be a sequel set after the events of the series finale, following Jesse as he blazes a trail away from that horrifying finale.
