Save FilmStruck

Warner Media Group made a huge mistake when they decided to pull the plug on FilmStruck, and no one is being shy on calling them out for it. Almost immediately after it was announced that the botique streaming service would be closing its virtual doors later this month, a petition popped up imploring someone to save FilmStruck. The petition has already amassed more than 40,000 signatures, and filmmakers across Twitter are asking more to sign. The latest big name to join the growing chorus is Babara Streisand.

american werewolf in london remake edgar wright

Update: Max Landis has reached out to us about this story and has clarified a few details about what went down here. We have added the new details at the bottom of our original story.

One movie that absolutely does not need a remake is An American Werewolf in London, John Landis‘ brilliant horror-comedy featuring mind-blowing special make-up effects. But there are plans for a remake anyway, with Landis’ son Max Landis writing the script and maybe even directing. At one point, though, Baby Driver Edgar Wright was offered the opportunity to helm the American Werewolf in London remake, and wisely turned it down. Find out why below.

colors music video

Edgar Wright made his most colorful piece of spectacle yet with the music video for Beck’s “Colors.” The Baby Driver and Hot Fuzz director crafted a music video jammed full of joy and it has been steadily making people happy (and dazzling their senses) since it debuted last year. The director’s propulsive style goes perfectly hand-in-hand with the total blast of a pop song.

The filmmaker previously directed music videos for Pharrell Williams, Mint Royale, and around a dozen other bands. With his music video for Beck, Wright told us, “Most of the other videos that I’ve done have some plot or premise or sort of story concept, but this one was more like, how can I just express how I feel about this song in visuals?”

And he sat down with us to tell us how it call came together.

rian johnson music video

Rian Johnson and Edgar Wright are the latest in a long line of famous directors to cross over the musical field, adding their signature visual styles to music videos for LCD Soundsystem and Beck, respectively.

But for Wright, that crossover is old news. The Baby Driver director famously honed his distinct visual style in the early days of his career by directing music videos like Mint Royale’s “Blue Song,” which went on to inspire Wright’s 2017 heist film. Now he’s returned to the music video realm for Beck’s “Colors,” which — like LCD Soundsystem was for Johnson — is perfectly suited to his directorial style.

Not only do these music videos boast esteemed directors, they also feature high-profile Hollywood stars, with Sissy Spacek and David Straithairn working with Johnson in LCD Soundsystem’s “oh baby,” and Alison Brie dancing her socks off with Beck in the Wright-directed music video for “Colors.”
