Annapurna box office

Year after year, I hear cinephiles issue the same complaint: “Why aren’t there more original movies?” Why, film fans wonder, is the box office landscape littered with sequels, reboots and superhero movies? The answer is simple: when original movies do hit theaters, no one sees them. Case in point: Annapurna Pictures, one of the most original motion picture companies out there today, had a whole slew of great movies last year. And guess what? Every single one of them, except one, was a box office bomb.

New Blu-ray Releases a star is born

the sisters brothers clip

The Sisters Brothers is the best movie you didn’t see in 2018 – a strange, melancholy postmodern Western starring John C. Reilly, Joaquin Phoenix, Riz Ahmed and Jake Gyllenhaal. If you missed the film in theaters (and there’s a good chance you did), The Sisters Brothers is hitting digital this week, and Blu-ray next month, and you should really make an effort to see it. In honor of the digital release, we have an exclusive The Sisters Brothers clip focusing on the film’s director, Jacques Audiard.

The 20 Best Movie Posters of 2018

Best Movie Posters of 2018

Now that we’re officially in 2019, the /Film team wanted to take a look back at the year in film that was 2018, and that includes some of the best marketing we saw. Often times, even before a trailer arrives online, we’ll see a poster announcing the arrival of any given movie. And while most posters are forgettable and lack any remarkable style, movie posters are still very much an artform, and a lot of studios know how to do them right. That’s why yours truly took the time to round up what I have deemed the 20 Best Movie Posters of 2018. Read More »

2018 Box Office on Track to Set New Record

2018 box office total

Despite the persistent fear that streaming will kill off movie theaters, the 2018 box office is on track to break records, domestically. The domestic box office revenue for the year just hit $11 billion, and will only continue to increase in the remaining days of 2018. This puts 2018 on the path to obliterate the previous record-holding year of 2016, where the annual box office topped-out at $11.4 billion. In short, it was a very good year for the movies. But some films weren’t so lucky…

It’s practically undeniable that Chicago-born actor John C. Reilly is one of the most beloved actors on the face of the earth, from his frequent character work in the early films of Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia) to his more dramatic takes in The Hours and We Need To Talk About Kevin to his frequent pairings with Will Farrell, including Step Brothers, Talladega Nights, and the upcoming Holmes & Watson. Reilly is a utilitarian performer, who is impossible to typecast because he can do it all. Before the end of 2018, in addition to playing Dr. Watson, we’ll hear him as the voice of video game character Ralph in Ralph Breaks the Internet and take on one half of another great team, playing Oliver Hardy to Steve Coogan’s Stan Laurel in Stan & Ollie.

the sisters brothers review

Jacques Audiard‘s The Sisters Brothers is an utterly strange, utterly lovely postmodern Western about two outlaw brothers and the two men they’re hunting. Dreamy, surreal and balancing darkness and light in equal measure, it’s a wholly unique, somewhat perplexing experience. 

Find out more in our The Sisters Brothers review below.
