There sure are a lot of movies and TV shows about people being hunted for sport, aren’t there?

Hollywood has been trying to make Liam Hemsworth a star for years, casting the hunky Aussie in your garden variety action films, blockbuster sequels, and romances. But maybe all he needed to do to prove his star power was grow a beard and throw himself into a slightly weird crime thriller. Hemsworth stars in Arkansas, a somewhat offbeat crime thriller directed by Clark Duke that follows two petty criminals who find themselves in the crosshairs of a drug kingpin played by Vince Vaughn.

Among the slew of new platforms that enter the increasingly competitive streaming wars, Quibi is a big question mark. A mobile platform that offers its content in 10-minute bite-sized episodes? Surely it must be a joke, or at least, a very odd experiment. We have yet to see whether that experiment will pay off.
Quibi certainly has been throwing all kinds of money and high-profile names at its projects, with everyone from Steven Spielberg to Guillermo del Toro involved with the forthcoming streaming service. And judging by the new trailer for one of the first of its many original titles, the action thriller Most Dangerous Game starring Liam Hemsworth and Christoph Waltz, it has spared no expense for its shows. Watch the Most Dangerous Game trailer below.

Like many romantic comedies, Isn’t It Romantic? makes New York City a big part of the story. In fact, there are two versions of The Big Apple in the movie. First, there’s the grungy, dingy real New York City that we all know and love. Then there’s the colorful, vibrant and picturesque version of New York City that exists in the romcom dream world that Rebel Wilson finds herself stuck in. It’s in this world that director Todd Strauss-Schulson was able to create a scene that he’s been dreaming of since he was 10 years old. And to see it go from his mind to the big screen is pretty incredible. Read More »
Isn’t It Romantic? is in theaters right now. The story follows a New York architect named Natalie (Rebel Wilson) who works hard to get noticed at her job. But more often than not gets relegated to the sidelines, sent out for coffee instead of presenting her big ideas for her firm’s clients. Life takes an odd turn when Natalie gets knocked unconscious and wakes up in her own romantic comedy. It’s both an unsettling nightmare and a hilarious dream.
Director Todd Strauss-Schulson (A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas, The Final Girls) has created an vibrant romantic comedy world that emulates all of the genre’s tropes. But it’s also a love letter to romcoms, packed with a big beating heart that it wears on its sleeve. In order to bring this cinematic, romantic world to life, the filmmaker immersed himself in dozens of romcoms in the span of two weeks. In fact, he watched every romantic comedy made between 1988 and 2007, and it shows.
We sat down for an interview with Todd Strauss-Schulson where he talked about the extensive preparation for the movie that no one asked him to do. Plus, he discussed attempting to decode the genome of romantic comedies, making a meta comedy without feeling like a spoof, and bringing to life a scene that he’s dreamed about since he was 10 years old.
