Sprawling and brutal, The Devil All the Time is not for the impatient or the squeamish. Adapted rather faithfully from Donald Ray Pollock’s novel of the same name, Antonio Campos‘ star-studded Southern gothic tracks a group of sinners through time as they all mill about the unincorporated area known as Knockemstiff, Ohio, leaving a trail of death, sorrow, and regret in their wake. It can be an overwhelmingly bleak film, but there’s a glimmer of hope shining through all that darkness – the hope of escaping the insane world you find yourself stuck in.

Director Christopher Nolan has been virtually making the publicity rounds in support of the release of Tenet in movie theaters across several international markets. Though there’s been a lot of discussion about whether it’s responsible or smart for Warner Bros. Pictures to release Tenet in theaters right now, especially in the United States, Nolan hasn’t directly addressed the issue himself. But in a recent interview, the director did discuss the idea of his film being labeled as the savior of movie theaters during this difficult time.
Outside of Tenet, the filmmaker behind The Dark Knight Trilogy was inevitably questioned about the casting of his Tenet co-star Robert Pattinson as the latest iteration of The Caped Crusader in Matt Reeves’ upcoming The Batman. In fact, Pattinson found out that he landed the role of Batman while on the set of Tenet, and Nolan chatted about the vibe on set after the casting news broke. Read More »
The Batman trailer arrived during DC FanDome, and it did not disappoint. Even though Matt Reeves and company only shot a small portion of the film before having to shut down production due to coronavirus, the filmmaker was still able to cut together a solid, atmospheric look at the latest take on the Dark Knight. It has the trappings we’d expect from a Batman flick: it’s moody, it’s gothic, it has lots of scenes of people standing in the rain. But it also looks different. Grungier. Scarier. It almost looks like a remake of Seven (or Se7en, if you want to be a jerk about it) that just happens to feature Batman. So let’s dive into the footage and see what’s going on here, shall we?

It’s been a decade since we discovered bread made us fat, but Scott Pilgrim vs. the World‘s cult classic status has not dimmed since its release in 2010. Rather, the love for this marvel of star power combined with director Edgar Wright‘s video game stylings has only gotten stronger, and that’s not just because it’s given us a few Marvel stars like Chris Evans and Brie Larson.
On the 10th anniversary of the release of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, a flood of love for the film from fans and the cast has arrived, along with a flood of new trivia and behind-the-scenes stories. Did you know Robert Pattinson was almost an Evil Ex? That Michael Cera and Chris Evans worked out together? And what’s up with that “no blinking” rule?

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Robert Pattinson‘s The Batman audition story has a twist that even Christopher Nolan couldn’t have dreamed up. Which is funny, because it involves the Tenet and Dark Knight trilogy director himself.
It’s awkward for anyone to discretely go to a job interview while you’re doing fine at your current job. But Pattinson turned that awkward experience up to 11 with his The Batman audition story, which involved Tenet, Christopher Nolan, and a very bad lie.

Netflix has a new dramatic thriller coming to their streaming library in September, and the ensemble cast is one of the best they’ve ever had for an original movie. Tom Holland, Robert Pattinson, Jason Clarke, Riley Keough, and more all star in The Devil All the Time, an adaptation of Donald Ray Pollock‘s book of the same name. The story is described as an explosive Midwestern Gothic tale spanning two decades as sinister characters converge around a young man forced to fight the evil forces that threaten him and everything he loves. The trailer is coming soon, but in the meantime, a new poster touts the fantastic cast in all their seedy Midwestern glory. Read More »
