The Goldbergs Season 7 Interview

The Goldbergs creator Adam F. Goldberg stepped back from the series based on his own family in season seven. But Alex Barnow and Chris Bishop have continued telling the stories about Adam Goldberg (Sean Giambrone) and his family in the 1980s.

Sean Giambrone was at ABC’s reception for the Television Critics Association and spoke with /Film about the current season. The good news is that he says things haven’t changed on the show since Goldberg’s departure, and he still contributes to the show.  Find out more in our The Goldbergs season 7 interview with Sean Giambrone below.

Avengers Endgame Spoilers

Avengers: Endgame is now playing in theaters everywhere, and in the coming days, there will be a lot to dissect in this epic three-hour culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date. However, we know that not everyone is able to see the movie opening weekend for whatever reason. But don’t worry, because we got you covered.

Instead of firing off spoilers before opening weekend has even begun and ruining the moviegoing experience for anyone else, we’re going to be very careful about how we cover any Avengers Endgame spoilers, just as we have been leading up to the movie. But we wanted you to know what’s in store starting Monday morning, as well as one article running Friday evening that answers one question that a lot of people have had after their screening.

The dark, edgy and moody take on Fantastic Four didn’t pan out with Josh Trank‘s reboot. Even after audiences failed to turn up for the troubled movie, 20th Century Fox and producer Simon Kinberg continued to discuss a potential sequel. A sequel, which was originally dated to come out about two weeks ago, won’t happen – but at some point, a reboot will.

Below, learn more about a potential Fantastic Four reboot.

Over the past few weeks, /Film has been undergoing a number of changes and I wanted to address them directly on the site. We talked about some of these developments on Twitter and Facebook, but I know a bunch of you don’t follow us on social media. So let’s dive in and discuss the future of /Film.

Headshot review

Iko Uwais may not be a household name in the U.S. just yet, but among fans of a certain type of action movie he’s a superstar. The Indonesian actor and martial artist burst onto the scene with Merantau and had an even bigger breakthrough in The Raid. Headshot, from directors Timo Tjahjanto and Kimo Stamboel (collectively known as the Mo brothers, though they are not actual brothers), has Uwais doing what he does best — kicking ass and taking names — with spectacularly entertaining results.  Read More »

Briefly: I’ll be in Los Angeles tonight for a screening of The Primary Instinct, followed by a live podcast recording of Jeff Goldsmith’s The Q&A. Stephen Tobolowsky will also be in attendance. If you’re in Los Angeles, come down to the Los Angeles Film School and join us. Details on how to RSVP are here.

There are only a few podcasts for which I’d consider disrupting my life and flying somewhere overnight to record. Jeff Goldsmith’s The Q&A is one of them. I’ve been listening to Jeff’s podcasting for over 6 years, and have often marveled at the insight and practical advice he’s been able to extract from his guests. It will be a great honor to participate and I hope to see some of you there. And of course, if you can’t make it, you can always buy the film here.

Germain’s Goodbye to Slashfilm

Empire Strikes Back Ending
Slashfilm has always been my favorite website. It’s where a young New Yorker writing about local entertainment went to learn about Hollywood movies like Transformers and The Dark Knight. Believe it or not, it’s where I first came in contact with the works of artists like Tyler Stout, Scott Campbell and places like Mondo and Gallery 1988 — names that would literally change my life. After I moved to Los Angeles, I’d see Peter Sciretta at events and geek out like a star-struck fanboy. /Film was defining who I was long before I started working here.

Then, in September 2010, I did start working here. Like you see in the movies, every day since then, working my dream job has been exactly that: a dream. However, after completing over 8,200 articles during the past five years, I’m both happy and sad to announce today is my last day at /Film.

Phil Noto Force Awakens

November 28 was a big Friday for Star Wars fans. Our first glimpse at Episode VII, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, hit in the form of a short teaser trailer. We here at /Film were all over it, and in case you missed some of what we wrote about the trailer, we wanted to make the links nice and convenient for you over the holiday weekend. So here goes:

Check back next week for even more on this momentous occasion. Thanks to Phil Noto for the cool fan poster.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Star Wars logo

We love getting excited about movies. And part of that involves reading all the rumors and gossip behind the projects we’re looking forward to. We post about what we’re interested in. We have a lot of Star Wars posts on the site because some of us are very excited about the project and like speculating about the latest rumors and details.

We often post rumors and information that could be considered possible spoilers. We are very careful about giving readers proper spoiler warnings, leaving all the spoilerish details out of the headlines and below the jump.

We love movies and we don’t want to ruin them for anyone.

This may surprise some of you, but we don’t post everything — there is lot of information we avoid in our coverage because we don’t want to completely spoil a big reveal or twist. Of course, its sometimes difficult to know if a rumor or plot tidbit is a big reveal — we try to assess every piece of information individually as it comes up to the best of our abilities and through the context of the information we have at hand.

A massive amount of Star Wars Episode VII rumors have leaked this week, and we have and will continue to cover them (again, on a case by case basis). But one potentially huge spoiler was posted on the Star Wars fan blogs last night that we won’t touch.

I mention this because I want you to know its out there. I’ve already seen a bunch of sites pick it up and I suspect that many sites will pick up the information in the coming days.

I would urge other sites not to post this one. Don’t be a dick. Think about what you’re posting and if you think its worth posting, please consider how you present it — Be considerate to those who might not want to know this kind of information.

Some headlines could be too revealing, and you might even see some people talking about it on social media. Please count this as your spoiler warning. I’m not sure if this new bit of information is real, but if it is, it should be considered the biggest of possible spoilers.

I’m not spoilerphobic at all. I believe you will still enjoy a movie even if you know everything that is going to happen. I have watched Back to the Future hundreds of times and still enjoy it each time. You read the Lord of the Rings books and knew everything that was going to happen, but they’re still some of your favorite movies, right? To me, surprises are usually gimmicks. I believe if the enjoyment of a movie hinges solely on a surprise then the movie probably doesn’t have a good enough story. All of that said, this new rumor is a potentially huge spoiler, of the “end of the movie” kind, and I wish I didn’t know about this one.

You have been warned, so now you know to avoid it.

For those of you who want to read the latest rumors and speculation, I hope you can continue to consider /Film a safe site to do that without fear of encountering spoilers like this one.
