New Charlie's Angels

Since it sounds like Sony’s attempt to reboot the Men in Black franchise isn’t yielding very good results, the studio will have to hold out hope that their other franchise reboot coming later this year will do the trick.

Charlie’s Angels is coming back to the big screen in November with Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska as the dangerous trio of spies sent out on missions by a rich benefactor named Charles Townsend. But this time, the Angels are part of a global spy franchise, and the girls won’t be worrying about stuff like finding a boyfriend or calling their mom back. Director Elizabeth Banks wants this to be a movie about women at work, working together and kicking ass. Read More »

Elizabeth Banks will join her sisters in arms for equal rights in the FX limited series Mrs. America, which is (sadly) not a sequel to Mistress America. Banks joins the Mrs. America cast as Jill Ruckelshaus, a pro-choice, socially progressive Republican who was involved in the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment during the 1970s in FX’s nine-episode limited series from Emmy-winning writer Davhi Waller. But she’ll be butting heads with Cate Blanchett, who plays a prominent conservative who leads the unexpected backlash against the amendment.

brightburn featurette

Brightburn takes the story of Superman, and adds a twist: what if Superman turned out to be evil, instead of good? The answer: lots and lots of gore. The new horror movie, which opens this week, makes for a creepy blend of comic book and slasher movie tropes, and according to the makers of the movie, creates a whole new genre. That genre is superhero horror. Watch a new Brightburn featurette below in which producer James Gunn and star Elizabeth Banks discuss the film’s approach to genre. Read More »

brightburn review

What would happen if Kal-El crashed to Earth from Krypton, and grew up to be Michael Myers instead of Clark Kent/Superman? That’s the exact set-up of Brightburn, a nasty, gory superhero horror film from director David Yarovesky. Yarovesky and screenwriters Mark Gunn and Brian Gunn aren’t reinventing the wheel here. They’re not transcending genre, or attempting to take the superhero film into uncharted territory. Instead, they’re crafting a bleak, brutal subversion of the Superman mythos. And it works.

charlie's angels first look

The Charlie’s Angels first look is here, giving us our first glimpse of Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska in Elizabeth Banks‘ reboot. Although you probably shouldn’t call it a reboot. According to Banks, the new Charlie’s Angels is a “continuation” that actually references the events of both the original Charlie’s Angels TV series, and the two movies from the 2000s featuring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu.

brightburn extended trailer

Brightburn, the horror movie twist on the Superman origin story, has a new extended trailer, and it’s definitely worth watching. This dark and twisted take on superhero mythology hails from producer James Gunn, and looks like a remake of Richard Donner’s Superman and Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, done as a scary movie. It’s an exciting, different approach to the superhero sub-genre, and I can’t wait to see it. Watch the Brightburn extended trailer below.

What if Superman wasn’t good? It’s a nightmare dreamt up by plenty of comic book writers, supervillains, and Batman himself, but the new James Gunn-produced horror film plays out that scenario in full. Brightburn imagines a Superman origin story that goes horribly wrong, in which an alien, superpowered young boy decides to use his powers for evil.

BrightBurn has been an incredibly well-kept secret for months.
