James Gunn's The Suicide Squad

DC FanDome finally brought us a first look at James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad. The DC Comics movie continues the adventures of a few characters from 2016’s Suicide Squad, but thanks to the Guardians of the Galaxy director stepping behind the camera, the movie has a completely new style and it seems to have a much more vibrant look that draws from the colorful side of DC Comics. Along with that, there’s a huge new roster of characters, many of them from the more obscure pages of John Ostrander‘s run on the comic book series. Since people probably don’t know a lot about them, here are The Suicide Squad characters explained. Read More »

The King of Staten Island Blu-ray Release Date

The King of Staten Island was intended to be released in theaters this summer, but Universal Pictures and director Judd Apatow thought it was better to release the movie on Premium VOD rather than waiting for movie theaters to reopen. Unfortunately, that means what should have been Pete Davidson‘s big screen breakthrough only ended up on the small screen. Thankfully, a new featurette teasing the movie’s arrival on Blu-ray dives into how personal and important this story was to the Saturday Night Live star, and hopefully it will compel you to seek it out if you haven’t already.

king of staten island review

“There’s something wrong with me…mentally.” So says Scott (Pete Davidson), a directionless 20-something whose greatest ambition in life is to open a tattoo restaurant and get high all day while still living with his mom. Prone to fits of anger, and seemingly incapable of reading a room, Scott has never gotten over the death of his firefighter father. So when his long-suffering mother (Marisa Tomei) starts dating another firefighter (Bill Burr), Scott’s entire fractured world spins even further out of his control.

Judd Apatow’s The King of Staten Island is meant to be Pete Davidson’s big moment. Sure, Davidson isn’t exactly an unknown at this point – he’s been on Saturday Night Live since 2014, had supporting parts in numerous films and TV shows, and his very public relationship with singer Ariana Grande was plastered everywhere for a period of time. But Davidson has never had a leading role like this before, and the marketing for King of Staten Island makes a big deal about how Apatow is about to do for Davidson what he did for performers like Steve Carell, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Jason Segel, Kristen Wiig, Amy Schumer, and Kumail Nanjiani.

This behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming movie explains why Davidson’s own life story served as inspiration for the Judd Apatow movie, which is headed to VOD next month.

Pete Davidson has always never been shy about sharing his personal issues and traumas. The Saturday Night Live comedian has spoken candidly about his firefighter father’s death during the September 11 attacks, and even joked about it in his stand-up. And now, he will be tackling those issues head-on in the Judd Apatow-directed comedy The King of Staten Island.

king of staten island release

The King of Staten Island, the latest from Judd Apatow, is heading straight to VOD. The Pete Davidson-starring film was still holding onto its June theatrical release date, but since there’s no sign that movie theaters will reopen by then, Universal made the decision to send the movie to digital. This might indicate a distinct shift in studio thinking, as up until now, many have held fast to the idea of eventual theatrical release for their major titles, delaying certain films by months, or even an entire year.

Pete Davidson movie

Big Time Adolescence, the Pete Davidson movie which earned a positive reception at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, hits theaters today and was initially supposed to begin streaming on Hulu on March 20. But in a surprise move, the film is currently available to watch on that streaming service right now. It dropped a week early, presumably due to the coronavirus – but don’t expect big studio movies like Mulan or Black Widow to head straight to streaming in response to the pandemic. Read More »
