After the Wedding review

After the Wedding is a remake of Bird Box director Susanne Bier’s 2006 movie of the same name, and while I haven’t seen that version, this one is a muddled melodrama that never comes together in satisfying fashion.

Michelle Williams plays Isabel, an American ex-pat living in India and working at an orphanage. One day, she receives a surprise phone call to come to New York City, because high-powered businesswoman Theresa (Julianne Moore) wants to provide funding for her orphanage. Soon after Isabel arrives, Theresa invites her to her daughter Grace (Abby Quinn)’s wedding, which becomes the setting for a revelation about the relationship between the key players. Read More »

Venom Sequel

After Venom raked in over $855 million worldwide, there was no way Sony Pictures would pass on a sequel to the wildly successful Spider-Man spin-off. So it comes as no surprise that the studio is moving forward with plans for a Venom sequel, and they’re bringing back Kelly Marcel, one of the original film’s writers, to pen the script and executive produce. But director Ruben Fleischer won’t be returning to direct since he’ll be busy at the helm of another sequel, Zombieland 2. What about the cast?

Find out what we know about the Venom sequel so far. Read More »

McAuliffe was set to be the first teacher in space, but the shuttle exploded upon takeoff, killing all seven astronauts on board.

venom trailer

A new Venom trailer is here, and it has everything fans of the character could want: slime, tongues, and Tom Hardy talking to himself. The film is part of Sony’s Spider-Verse (or is it the Venom-Verse? Answer unclear), a series of films which aren’t connected to Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man films, like Homecoming and the upcoming Far From Home. Confused? Don’t worry! None of this matters. Watch the Venom trailer below!
