Nine Men From Now

Paul Schrader has never gone away, but his career is encountering a sudden upswing thanks to his acclaimed 2018 film First Reformed. So what’s next for Schrader? According to the man himself, he wants to make a Western called Nine Men from Now, and he hopes Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe will star. Those details alone are enough to pique my interest.

aquaman review

Aquaman is a movie that shouldn’t work. You’ve got Nicole Kidman eating a live goldfish in one scene, and an octopus playing the bongos in another — plus an absurd number of men sticking their heads down toilets (actually it’s just once, but it feels like a bit that goes on forever). And yet James Wan’s aquatic comic book movie is a total blast to watch.

On the heels of his scene-stealing introduction in last year’s Justice League, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman finally gets his own solo outing in an epic, sprawling adventure that is more than a match for his wild surfer bro superhero that spawned so many memes. Wan has managed to build an entire movie around Momoa’s laid-back hyper-masculine persona and uses it as a launchpad to create a staggeringly ambitious, visually overwhelming movie that crashes into you like a tidal wave.

Aquaman will soon make a big splash in theaters everywhere! That’s right, the King of Atlantis is going to swim his way onto movie screens, and cause a tidal wave at the box office! And he’s going to get you wet. Okay, that’s enough of that. We are indeed getting closer to the release of Aquaman, though, which means marketing is going to increase. Case in point: a series of silly (yet somehow enjoyable) character posters have just surfaced (sorry, I can’t stop!), featuring lots of blue, lots of flowing hair, and lots of Patrick Wilson yelling. Plunge to the depths below to sea the Aquaman posters.

aquaman trailer breakdown

Aquaman gave a select few audience members permission to come aboard for early test screenings of the Warner Bros. DC Extended Universe film. So what’s the verdict? A little murky, since audience members didn’t share more than a few vague reactions to the comic book movie. But for the most part, it seemed like Aquaman made quite a splash.

There’s more to Atlantis than meets the eye. A new Aquaman image reveals that the glorious, underwater kingdom is not the shining city on top of a coral reef that mythology would have you believe. Instead, the Atlantis in Aquaman seems to be subject to the same rival rulers and political turmoil that have plagued human history — just with more great white sharks and sea dragons. Which, to be honest, is infinitely cooler than the lame horses that human warriors have been saddled with.
