Into the Spider-Verse cast

We already knew the animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse would feature more than one friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. In addition to Peter Parker, there’s also Miles Morales. But that’s not all! We now know that Nicolas Cage has joined the Into the Spider-Verse cast as well, playing yet another Spider-Man: Spider-Man Noir.

isle of dogs spoiler review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs.)

With Isle of Dogs, Wes Anderson returns to the magical world of stop-motion for the first time since Fantastic Mr. Fox. The results are frustrating. On one hand, Anderson has crafted a genuinely emotional, frequently funny adventure focused on man’s best friend. On another hand, Anderson has, for some inexplicable reason, decided to use the film to turn Japanese culture into a punchline.

Isle of Dogs clip

There’s a new Isle of Dogs clip, and it’s predictably delightful. Wes Anderson‘s new stop-motion film boasts a stellar cast of voice actors while once again transferring the filmmaker’s trademark style to an animated playing field. The new Isle of Dogs clip is light on plot, but big on personality and dog fights. Watch it below.

Wes Anderson‘s latest stop-motion extravaganza Isle of Dogs looks pretty darn charming, brimming with Anderson’s trademark visual flare and style (only shrunken down into miniature form).

Jay Baruchel interview

With Goon: Last of the Enforcers, actor and writer Jay Baruchel makes his feature directorial debut. He previously directed an episode of Trailer Park Boys and a short film, Edgar and Jane, but the very first Jay Baruchel film is the sequel to a beloved sports comedy he co-wrote. In the Goon sequel, which arrives five years after the first movie, the fights are bloodier, the fighters are more tired, and the future is less bright.

Doug Glatt (Sean William Scott) finally found his calling in Goon. In the sequel, his days are numbered on the ice, so the lovable goon with a massive fist finds himself lost again. Baruchel doesn’t forget the laughs, of course, but as he pointed out in our interview, hockey is changing for the enforcers, with fights dropping in the NHL. That sea change is a part of Goon: Last of the Enforcers, which Baruchel was happy to discuss along with how the sequel evolved and died twice, writing the legendary Ross Rhea (Liev Schreiber), and all the well-deserved love for the first Goon.

Below, check out our Jay Baruchel interview.

goon sequels

The story of Doug Glatt (Sean William Scott) and his mighty fists might not end with Goon: Last of the Enforcers. Co-writer/director Jay Baruchel‘s sequel comes five after the release of the first movie, which has a passionate fanbase in both movie and hockey fans. Hopefully, they’ll help make more than a single Goon sequel happen because Baruchel has more stories to tell about the Halifax Highlanders.

Below, the director shares an idea for one of the Goon sequels he has in mind.

Goon 2 Trailer

Comedy sequels are already a rare breed of movie, but sports comedy sequels are seen even less. But that didn’t stop actor Jay Baruchel from getting his passion project off the ground: a sequel to the hockey comedy Goon that he wrote back in 2011. Take Me Home Tonight director Michael Dowse was at the helm of the first film, co-written by Seth Rogen’s writing partner Evan Goldberg, but now Jay Baruchel himself has gotten behind the camera for the sequel.

Goon: Last of the Enforcers finds Seann William Scott returning as hockey enforcer Doug Glatt, sidelined after taking one big hit during a fight with the league’s new hot shot Anders Cain (Wyatt Russell of 22 Jump Street). Left behind by the sport he loves and suffocated by home life with a baby on the way, Doug “The Thug” Glatt is forced to take lessons from his former rival (Liev Schreiber) in order to learn how to fight in the ice rink again.

Chuck Liev Schreiber

I’ve seen all of the Rocky movies a handful of times, but I’ve somehow never thought to do any research into writer/star Sylvester Stallone’s inspiration for his underdog boxing story. Sly apparently wrote the script in three and a half days after watching an unknown fighter named Chuck Wepner beat the odds and miraculously go 15 rounds against one of the greatest boxers of all time, Muhammad Ali, and now IFC Films is telling Wepner’s story in a new biopic starring Liev Schreiber. Check out the Chuck trailer below.

Logan Sabertooth Cameo

Liev Schreiber is a great actor given a not-so-great role in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The Ray Donavon star wasn’t playing a particularly dynamic version of Sabretooth in that comic book movie. It ended up being the first and last time we saw Schreiber as the character, but there was some chatter about him returning for Logan. According to the film’s co-writer, Scott Frank (The Lookout), they considered having him lend Wolverine a hand during his journey.

Below, learn about director James Mangold‘s scrapped idea for a Logan Sabretooth cameo.
