Time for another look at Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana in Spencer, the upcoming film from Jackie director Pablo Larrain. There was a lot of talk about how Stewart was “unrecognizable” when the first image, which you can see above, was released for the film. I didn’t quite agree with that assessment. However, I do think Stewart is almost unrecognizable in this new image, which you can see below. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s something else going on here beyond a wig. Prosthetics? Make-up? Just a trick of the lighting? You decide.

happiest season trailer

Netflix may churn out a ton of Christmas movies every year, but Hulu is not content to completely cede that territory to its streaming rival. While it certainly won’t be able to match Netflix in terms of sheer quantity of Christmas films, Hulu is hoping that the quality of a film like Happiest Season, a new rom-com starring Kristen Stewart (Personal Shopper) and Mackenzie Davis (Blade Runner 2049), will elevate it into the zeitgeist. And with a hooky premise and a wonderful cast on board, they may be onto something.

Check out the Happiest Season trailer below.

The plot will focus on Diana’s decision to leave Prince Charles, thus ending any chance she might have had to one day be Queen. Steven Knight, whose credits include LockeTaboo, and…uh…Serenity, wrote the script.  Read More »

underwater review

How can such a predictable movie be so damn refreshing? In the storytelling department, Underwater is all washed-up, falling back on waterlogged horror cliches and heavily indebted to flicks like AlienThe Abyss, and The Descent. You know exactly where this freakshow is going from frame one. You know there will be loud clanging sounds against metal hulls. You know there will be trips down dark, soggy corridors. You know some wriggly wet monstrosity will rear its ugly head. This is paint-by-numbers moviemaking. And yet…it’s an absolute blast?

In Underwater, a team of researchers gets into deep trouble when they run afoul of undersea terror. Kristen Stewart, Vincent Cassel, Jessica Henwick, John Gallagher Jr., Mamoudou Athie, and T.J. Miller play the members of the team, and in this new clip, they all have to climb into some bulky suits to make their way into the ocean. Needless to say, trouble arises.

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.)

A lot can change in a lifetime, so said the meme-able tagline for The Irishman this year. But it doesn’t even take a full life to observe a radical change in the trajectory of a life, as shown by the many artists who changed the course of their careers during the 2010s. It’s one thing to stage a comeback when you’re down and out in the public eye – after all, who doesn’t love an underdog story? – and another to successfully execute a 180-degree shift when things are going fairly smoothly.

This list pays tribute to those in the industry who pulled off pivots that caught us off-guard but did their job of redefining an already established star image. You might notice a running theme in this list: it’s disproportionately male, white and straight, unfortunately. This indicates that there is still room for the industry to improve in the 2020s and allow more opportunities for women, people of color and LGBTQ+ artists to spread their wings and avoid becoming pigeonholed into a single identity. But given the breadth of artists reshaping a well-known persona in this decade, they have many great playbooks to run.
