There are two kinds of people in the world: those who think the John Wick movies are just action movies and those who think the John Wick movies are a feverish pinnacle of pop culture art that we will explore and study for years to come. I’ve gone on record as being part of the latter.
A new image from John Wick 3 (or John Wick 3: Parabellum, as it is apparently titled) has arrived online and it caters specifically to Wick nerds like me. There’s not a gun or a Keanu Reeves in sight. Just the promise of a meeting between two very dangerous men.

This morning brought the first trailer for Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp. Even though there’s plenty of footage in the trailer, which runs just over a minute and a half, we only get a few story details, and none of them include any information on just what kind of villain our new superhero team will be contending with this time. But even so, there were plenty of details to notice, and we’ll run through some of the finer points in our Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer breakdown. Read More »
Much like how Richard Linklater‘s last film Everybody Wants Some! was a spiritual sequel to his 1993 classic Dazed and Confused, his newest film is an official sequel to the 1973 Hal Ashby movie The Last Detail.
Last Flag Flying teams the Oscar-nominated director up with Bryan Cranston, Steve Carrell, and Laurence Fishburne in a melancholic veteran meditation about three Vietnam War vets who reunite under tragic circumstances.

Yesterday, a shocking piece of news was unleashed upon the world: Donald Trump’s 2005 income tax papers finally proved that rich people pay much less percentage-wise than you and me and that tax changes he’s trying to get approved will allow people like him to pay even less! And then, Hollywood responded with some shocking news of its own. The Hollywood Reporter broke a huge entertainment news story: Warner Bros is developing a reboot of The Matrix without the involvement of original franchise creators Lilly and Lana Wachowski and possibly starring Michael B. Jordan.
My immediate response is that this is a horrible idea. After dwelling on it, I compiled a list of reasons to leave this franchise alone…and then decided to play devil’s advocate and also look at the reasons why The Matrix should be rebooted.

Like many of you, John Wick kicked my ass when it was released in 2014. I went into John Wick: Chapter 2 expecting to be amazed with the fight scenes (which I was), but I has not anticipated that I would walk out of the theater talking about the worldbuilding of this new film. John Wick 3 is already in development, and I’m very excited to see more chapters in this world.
Lets take a look at what may await us in John Wick: Chapter 3, pieced together from interview comments from director Chad Stahelski, screenwriter Derek Kolstad, actor Keanu Reeves, and more.

When a movie like Justice League has six superheroes that need to share screentime, it should come as no surprise that some of the supporting characters who don’t throw on a cape and/or tights end up sitting out of the fun.
In addition to our superheroes like Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and the return of Superman (Henry Cavill), other returning cast members will include Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth. But one DC Expanded Universe star who has appeared in both Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice won’t be around for Justice League.
Find out why the Justice League cast won’t include Laurence Fisburne as Perry White after the jump. Read More »
Ensuring that there will be at least one great action movie this year, John Wick: Chapter 2 is hitting theaters in about a month. Keanu Reeves is back as the titular assassin, and he looks even deadlier this time.
A new John Wick 2 TV spot has arrived online, featuring a couple awesome new moments of action, including a sequence that takes place in a room full of mirrors, and a chase that doesn’t end so well for one motorcyclist. As Ian McShane cautions to a soon-to-be-dead bad guy, “You stabbed the devil in the back, and now he’s coming again.” So Keanu Reeves will really be the devil this time, instead of The Devil’s Advocate.
