the little things featurette

The Little Things has a pretty big selling point: all three of its leads – Denzel Washington, Rami Malek, and Jared Leto – are Oscar winners. That fact has been plastered all over the poster for the flick, and now, a featurette is here to sing the praises of those actors. In the behind-the-scenes look at the film below, Washington, Malek, and Leto talk about how cool it is to be working together.

the little things review

The dream of the ’90s is alive in The Little Things, a new serial killer thriller that’s actually anything but new. Writer-director John Lee Hancock penned the script back in the early 1990s, and the finished film arrives here in 2021 with its ’90s aesthetic intact. The cars are boxy, there’s not a cell phone in sight, and there’s nothing here you haven’t seen in a dozen other serial killer thrillers before. Hancock’s script first surfaced in 1993, which means it pre-dated 1995’s Seven. But while the source material came before David Fincher’s gloomy serial killer hit, the film itself is often woefully derivative. Moviegoers nostalgic for those serial killer flicks of yesterday may get a cheap thrill out of what’s on display here, but that’ll only get them so far.

Rami Malek and Zoe Saldana

David O. Russell, the director behind films like American Hustle, Three Kings, The Fighter, and Silver Linings Playbook, has not made a feature film since 2015’s Joy. But Hollywood executives seemingly have short memories, because despite reports about his abhorrent on-set behavior, he’s about to get back behind the camera once again.

Rami Malek and Zoe Saldana are the latest actors to sign on for his mysterious new project, which already has an impressive cast attached. Read More »

The Little Things Trailer

It’s been a couple of years since we last saw Denzel Washington on the big screen, delivering justice on the streets in The Equalizer 2. Now he’s back laying down the law as a county sheriff called in to help with a string of grisly murders.

The Little Things finds Denzel Washington as Kern County Deputy Sheriff Joe “Deke” Deacon as he’s asked to assist a Los Angeles detective (Rami Malek) in his pursuit of a murderer who is terrorizing the city and killing women over and over again (that murderer may or may not be Jared Leto). Deke shows impeccable skills throughout the investigation, but it appears as if he’s also harboring a dark secret of his own. Watch the trailer below. Read More »

No Time to Die Photos

A proper glimpse at 007’s next mission arrived this week with the first trailer for No Time to Die. It certainly looks like a better outing for Daniel Craig than Spectre, and considering this is his send-off as James Bond, that’s good news for fans. But the movie is still roughly five months away, so we’ll have to sink our teeth into some slick official images from the movie in the meantime

The new No Time to Die photos feature shots of Daniel Craig looking both rugged and dapper, as well as the return of Christoph Waltz as Blofeld and another facially disfigured villain in the form of Rami Malek. Plus, it wouldn’t be a James Bond movie without some ladies on the scene, including Ana de Armas, Lea Seydoux, and Lashana Lynch. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Rocketman cameo

Rocketman, the Elton John musical starring Taron Egerton, nearly established a connected cinematic universe with last year’s Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

Rami Malek, who won an Oscar for his portrayal of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, almost reprised that role for a small cameo in Rocketman, a connection the film’s director said “would have been amazing.” And speaking of Bohemian Rhapsody, after that film became one of 2018’s biggest surprise hits, Paramount considered turning Rocketman into a PG-13 movie to try to copy the earlier movie’s success. They ultimately decided to stick with an R rating, but it wasn’t just the studio that was considering the change – apparently the filmmakers and producers thought about it, too.
