Jonah Hill has had a remarkable career arc. When he started out as a mainstay in crude comedies and broke out with the wildly raunchy Superbad, no one really expected him to go on to become an Oscar nominee — let alone a two-time Oscar nominee. Now Hill is stepping behind the camera with his directorial debut, Mid90s. Based on a script penned by Hill, Mid90s is a coming-of-age film set in — you guessed it — the ’90s. See the first trailer below.

War is coming to the Wizarding World.
Things are much more dire in the sequel to the 2016 Harry Potter prequel, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

And despite his peace-loving ways, magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) finds himself pulled into the oncoming battle.

As we near the new year, one of 2018’s most anticipated movies will slowly start to open its magical briefcase of treasures.
The controversial retention of Johnny Depp aside, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is an exciting follow-up to 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by virtue of the compelling main characters and the continued expansion of Harry Potter’s enchanting world. So it’s smart that the first image we see of the film outside of the initial cast photo would be of the two who tied Fantastic Beasts together: Eddie Redmayne‘s Newt Scamander and Katherine Waterston‘s Tina Goldstein. And they’re looking fresh and fancy.

Today, electricity surges through our homes, offices and restaurants and we’re hard-pressed to get anything done without the power it provides. But back in the 19th century, electricity was in its infancy, and it was at the center of a war between two of the greatest minds of the time to see who would control the marketplace for energy. The story of that historic battle is coming to the big screen this fall.
The Current War stars Benedict Cumberbatch as inventor Thomas Edison and Michael Shannon as entrepreneur and engineer George Westinghouse as the two battle to see whose idea for bringing electricity to the masses would become the primary source for power. The battle stems from Edison’s company wanting to use direct current while Westinghouse thought alternating current was the way to go, hence the title of the movie. Read More »
While tomorrow will be a magical day in the United States as many Americans take the day off to celebrate Independence Day with cookouts, fireworks and other assorted tomfoolery, today is a magical day across the pond for an entirely different reason.

Warner Bros. Pictures sent out an official press release about the start of production, and with it comes some new details on the story, as well as notes on a handful of new characters coming into the fray.

After planning three heists in Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen, the formerly retired Steven Soderbergh is back behind the camera for a new heist, and he’s brought his Magic Mike star with him.
Logan Lucky follows Channing Tatum as Jimmy Logan, a thirtysomething man fired from his job, looking to turn the bad luck of the Logan family around once and for all by pulling off a heist at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. But he’ll need the help of his reluctant, one-armed brother Clyde (Adam Driver) and an incarcerated robbery expert named Joe Bang (Daniel Craig) to help him out. It’s the kind of comedic crime you’d expect from Steven Soderbergh, and a new trailer just arrived with a bunch of new footage.

Steven Soderbergh‘s “anti-glam Ocean’s 11” looks, to put it simply, like a blast. Based on the first footage from Logan Lucky, which arrived over the weekend, Daniel Craig‘s performance alone as Joe Bang may be worth the price of admission. We haven’t seen Craig quite like this before, and the same can be said for the rest of the stellar cast in Soderbergh’s blessed return to filmmaking.
Below, watch the Logan Lucky trailer.

After questioning where human life came from in Prometheus, director Ridley Scott continues the narrative in the prequel sequel Alien: Covenant. But the trailers have indicated that this is an Alien movie that also goes back to the monstrous roots of the original 1979 movie that introduced audiences to xenomorphs. The truth is that it’s both. The question is whether that results in a cohesive, thoughtful, suspenseful sci-fi flick that’s worth your time.
After the jump, those of us on the /Film crew who saw the movie already offer their own thoughts. Read More »
Even though we’re still a little under two weeks away from seeing Alien: Covenant on the big screen, critics have already seen the next chapter of the Alien prequel series that began with Prometheus and will supposedly continue with even more sequels that will take us back to the events of the original Alien from 1979. So what are the early reviews saying?
The consensus: though Alien: Covenant is a return to form for Ridley Scott as far as the horror, blood and gore is concerned, the director has a hard time balancing that stuff with the intellectual, thought-provoking, scientific side that made Prometheus less enjoyable than its predecessors.
