Paranormal Activity Reboot

If you thought the Paranormal Activity franchise ran its course then you weren’t alone. Even mega-producer Jason Blum said it was tired and done and he built his empire on the back of the crazy profits of those uber-cheap and successful films.

So, if you’re surprised that we have another one en route after hearing Blum describe the series as “tired” you’re not crazy. But apparently, it won’t be the same old same old this time. Read More »

spider-man into the spider-verse animation

Who’s the best movie Spider-Man: Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield or Tom Holland? Let’s not limit ourselves to live-action. What about the animated Miles Morales, voiced by Shameik Moore?

Holland is my personal favorite, but if you answered Jake Johnson, then ring-a-ding-ding — you might be in for a treat. Because it looks like Johnson may (emphasis on “may”) be returning for the sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

The time for teen slasher throwbacks is upon us. Some of those throwbacks, like Netflix’s Fear Street trilogy, are carving out their own identity with semi-original new stories while openly homaging what’s come before them. Others, like Paramount’s upcoming Scream reboot, are going straight back to the well of tried-and-true properties with built-in name recognition at the ’90s multiplex. Amazon’s I Know What You Did Last Summer series is among the latter. It’s being co-produced by James Wan and now we have word on when exactly we’ll all know what you did last summer. You know what you did.

Ten years ago, Captain America made his MCU debut with his pinstripe torso and a star on his chest. The world’s first superhero, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) had heart long before he got the physical ability to fight for justice, which made him the perfect person to lead the Avengers. But way before universe-shattering calamities like Thanos’ infinity gauntlet or even aliens attacking Earth, Cap was dealing with manageable, small-time evil — ya know, like Nazis.

Marvel movies like Black Widow

Marvel has had a history of taking promising filmmakers who may have previously flown under the radar, and putting them in a position to succeed on a national level. Some accuse the studio of sanding down all their unique edges to fit these talents into the ongoing franchise machine and, personally, I can see where they’re coming from. But sometimes it’s nice to be reminded that there is still plenty of craft and intention put into individual moments in these MCU movies, and that’s just what this new behind-the-scenes clip does.

The New York Times has an “Anatomy of a Scene” video series where filmmakers break down one particular sequence of their new release. In their latest one, director Cate Shortland takes on one of the scrappiest hand-to-hand fight sequences in Black Widow and gives fans a look under the hood at just what goes into bringing these comic book moments to life.
