After the Wedding review

After the Wedding is a remake of Bird Box director Susanne Bier’s 2006 movie of the same name, and while I haven’t seen that version, this one is a muddled melodrama that never comes together in satisfying fashion.

Michelle Williams plays Isabel, an American ex-pat living in India and working at an orphanage. One day, she receives a surprise phone call to come to New York City, because high-powered businesswoman Theresa (Julianne Moore) wants to provide funding for her orphanage. Soon after Isabel arrives, Theresa invites her to her daughter Grace (Abby Quinn)’s wedding, which becomes the setting for a revelation about the relationship between the key players. Read More »

jimmy kimmel superhero trailer

There’s nothing like having super friends to make you a special superhero movie trailer based on a comic book you wrote when you were a 10-year-old nerd.

That’s what a flushed Jimmy Kimmel received on his 50th birthday, courtesy of Ben Affleck (his on-and-off boyfriend and actual superhero actor in the upcoming Justice League) and J.J. Abrams. They teamed up with a slew of familiar actors and comedians to create the ultimate superhero team: the Terrific Ten. The Terrific Ten are an invention of 10-year-old Kimmel’s mind, only existing on the worn-out pages of a comic book drawn by the prepubescent talk show host. Until last night.

Sam Raimi and Marc Webb Passed on ‘The Flash’

The Flash director

The search for The Flash director continues. Yesterday, we heard Robert Zemeckis is the frontrunner for the job, and today we’re hearing two Spider-Man directors, Sam Raimi and Marc Webb, are no longer in the running. Either one of them could’ve replaced directors Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) and Seth Grahame-Smith (The LEGO Batman Movie), who both left the project over creative differences.

Below, learn more about what Raimi and Webb have coming up.

Alien prologue

At the end of Prometheus, Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) either makes a very brave or very foolish decision. After the doctor’s search for humanity’s creators goes horribly wrong, leaving most of the Prometheus crew dead, she continues to seek answers. Based on Shaw’s lack of presence in the promotional materials for Alien: Covenant, her minimal role in the film, and the fact she’s with David (Michael Fassbender), we’re presuming her post-Prometheus mission doesn’t go so well.

In a new Alien: Covenant prologue, titled “The Crossing,” you can see Elizabeth and David hitting it off on their journey.

Alien Covenant Promos

The crew aboard the Covenant are in for one rude awakening. They’re all hopeful for their colony expedition and ready to start new lives, but what they don’t see coming are Xenomorphs, chest bursters, and your friendly neighborhood homicidal droid, David (Michael Fassbender). Daniels (Katherine Waterson) and friends are mostly doomed, but they don’t know that yet in some new Alien: Covenant promos, which features the film’s heroine and Captain Oram (Billy Crudup) sending messages back home intercut with some found footage of everything going to hell.

Alien Covenant international poster

We’re only a month away from witnessing some nasty xenomorphs tear apart the crew of the colony ship known as the Covenant. A recent poster for Sir Ridley Scott‘s Alien: Covenant went heavy on religious subtext, while the new international poster highlights the film’s stars. It’s a less artful piece of marketing for the sequel, but at least it has Billy Crudup in full view.

Below, check out the Alien: Covenant international poster.
