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.

Over a week ago, HBO Max provided a little tease of all the movies that Warner Bros. Pictures will be sending to theaters and the WarnerMedia streaming service simultaneously this year. Every single movie that the studio was planning on releasing in 2021 will get the hybrid release, including The Suicide Squad, Mortal Kombat, In the Heights, Malignant, The Many Saints of Newark, Dune, Cry Macho, and even The Matrix 4. Now a new, longer sizzle reel shows off new footage from all these movies and more. Read More »
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.

Warner Bros. Pictures is shaking up the theatrical release model this year by releasing their entire movie slate simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max for a limited time. Wonder Woman 1984 was the first to try out this strategy, but the studio wanted to take it much further by sending movies like Godzilla vs. Kong, Mortal Kombat, Space Jam: A New Legacy, The Suicide Squad, and more to the streaming service. Now a new HBO Max sizzle reel teases all the same-day premieres coming throughout 2021. Read More »
When Warner Bros. announced it would be releasing its entire 2021 film slate in theaters and simultaneously on HBO Max, it sent shockwaves through the film industry – and the reverberations were felt most strongly by the people who were directly involved with many of those movies, because none of them were told about the decision before it became public. Several big-name directors and actors (and their representatives) were none too pleased about potentially losing out on the financial bonuses they would normally receive from their movie hitting certain performance benchmarks at the box office, and now, weeks later, WB is still scrambling to clean up its own mess.

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 »
Director John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side, The Founder) is back with a new psychological thriller called The Little Things, which follows a pair of police officers (played by Oscar winners Denzel Washington and future Bond villain Rami Malek) as they try to solve a murder in Los Angeles.
Oscar winner Jared Leto plays one of the duo’s primary suspects, and now a first look image shows Washington – cool as ever – coming face to face with Leto’s character. Read More »
Even though we’re on the verge of a coronavirus vaccine being released, the early months of 2021 still aren’t looking great for movie theaters getting back to normal operations. Some movies originally intended for release early next year have already shifted to later in the year, such as Ghostbusters: Afterlife and the Aretha Franklin biopic Respect, but studios are considering sending some releases from the first quarter of 2021 to streaming, such as the live-action/animated hybrid Tom and Jerry and the previously delayed Kingsman franchise prequel The King’s Man.
