But in a new featurette which showcases some brand new footage, Lindelof says potential audiences don’t need to have read the original graphic novel to understand what’s happening in this series.

When They See Us featurette

The way the criminal justice system treated the Central Park Five – five boys who were arrested and incarcerated in 1989 for a rape they didn’t commit – is so far beyond terrible, so blatantly unjust, that it’s difficult to wrap my head around. But director Ava DuVernay (Selma, Middle of Nowhere) is shining a light on the horrors of the young men’s case and their eventual exoneration in When They See Us, a Netflix limited series which has just released a new featurette that includes interviews with DuVernay, the actual survivors, and the actors who portray them.

John Wick Chapter 3 training

Looking forward to John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum? That’s a rhetorical question, because the answer is obviously yes. And you absolutely should be: in his review for /Film, Chris Evangelista called the film “a bone-cracking, horse-kicking, dog-biting, book-smashing, ax-throwing action masterpiece.”

But it takes lots of hard work to pull off those incredible action sequences, and now a new John Wick Chapter 3 training video is here to showcase how stars Keanu Reeves and Halle Berry pushed themselves to their limits in order to achieve a sense of reality on screen. (Spoiler alert: their hard work paid off.)

Shazam interview

Last week, I joined a small group of journalists at a post production facility on the Warner Bros. studio lot to see a sneak peek of footage from the upcoming superhero film Shazam! After getting an early look at a few minutes of the movie, we spoke with director David F. Sandberg and producer Peter Safran about the film’s connections to the DCEU, how the project evolved from the days when Dwayne Johnson‘s Black Adam was said to be involved, the film’s post-credit sequence, and much more.  Read More »

Mary Poppins Returns clip

Mary Poppins Returns is going to sing and dance its way into movie theaters in just a few days, and Disney has unveiled another new clip that shows why Emily Blunt is truly the perfect person to take on this classic role.

Oh, and there’s also a featurette about Mary Poppins’ cousin Topsy, who’s played by Meryl Streep. It goes without saying that Streep is an acting legend, but (*whispers*) she’s kind of terrible in this movie! See for yourself below. Read More »

Mortal Engines featurette

“How often do we go to the movies today and see things that we’ve genuinely never seen before?”

Producer and co-writer Peter Jackson wants to give audiences a fresh new spectacle with Mortal Engines, Universal’s film adaptation of Philip Reeve’s popular young adult novel. And Jackson is actually delivering on that promise, showing us a post-apocalyptic world in which cities roam across a barren wasteland and eat other cities.

These rolling monstrosities – and who’s running them, how they’re organized, and just how the heck they physically consume smaller cities – are the subject of a brand new featurette, which you can check out below. Read More »

‘Creed II’ Featurettes: Will History Repeat Itself?

Creed II featurette Adonis

Apollo Creed and Ivan Drago stepped into a boxing ring back in 1985, but only Drago stepped out. The steroid-fueled Russian dealt a fatal blow to the charismatic American, leading Apollo’s rival-turned-friend Rocky Balboa to avenge him in the ring. Now, more than 30 years later, Apollo’s son is looking for his own revenge.

In this month’s Creed II, actor Michael B. Jordan reprises his role as Adonis Creed, and he’s fighting against not only Drago’s son, but against the weight of expectation and legacy. MGM has released a slew of new Creed II featurettes that showcase several of the film’s characters and what they have to deal with in the upcoming sequel. Read More »

Creed II featurette

The Rocky movies have always been about legacy. Sylvester Stallone‘s underdog boxer didn’t think he was going to win in his first bout with Apollo Creed back in the original movie – he just wanted to “go the distance” to prove he could hang in there with the best of ’em. 2015’s Creed was about legacy too, but in a different way: legacy was a burden in that film, a shadow from which Michael B. Jordan‘s Adonis needed to step out to establish himself as a boxer in his own right.

Surprise, surprise: the theme of legacy returns again in Creed II, with Adonis not only facing off against the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), but doing so as a new parent. Plus, in a more meta sense, new director Steven Caple Jr. has the franchise’s legacy to contend with as he tries to fill the shoes of previous director Ryan Coogler. Watch a new Creed II featurette below.
