Marvel Explains Why You Don’t See Avengers Tower On Netflix Shows

3 hours ago

Marvel‘s Netflix shows sure like to tease that they take place in the same universe as the movies, but there’s rarely any hard connections made. Kevin Feige has previously explained that the timing between the movies and TV series makes keeping the juggling the narrative balls tricky, but you’d think some greater effort would be made. Hell, even the giant Avengers Tower hasn’t been glimpsed on Netflix yet, and there’s a very weak reason why.

Documentary About Stanley Kubrick’s ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ In The Works

4 hours ago

While I wouldn’t quite call “Eyes Wide Shut” divisive, Stanley Kubrick‘s final film is either seen as his final masterpiece or a picture where he didn’t quite hit it out of the park. A Christmas movie about breaking up, a dream-like erotic fable about the illusion of monogamy, just like with this other films, “Eyes Wide Shut” offers a lot to unpack. Now, a documentary is going to attempt to do just that.

‘Justice League’ Gets Judicious Running Time, J.K. Simmons Says Sequel In Development

4 hours ago

There’s been a lot of narrative around “Justice League” — regarding Zack Snyder‘s departure, the extent of Joss Whedon‘s changes, and more — including Warner Bros. and DC Films‘ decision to scrap the two-part plan. Originally, “Justice League” was going to go toe-to-toe with “Avengers: Infinity War,” with a two-movie, back-to-back bonanza. Those ambitions were scaled down amid the fallout and reshuffling of plans following “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” and “Suicide Squad.” And along the way, it looks like we got a superhero movie that’s going to have a very reasonable running time.

How Edgar Wright’s ‘Baby Driver’ Color Codes Its Characters

5 hours ago

Baby Driver” is a sharp and colorful film. The music selection, characters, locations, and editing, make for a fast-paced ride that paints a rainbow in a gritty underworld of crime. Edgar Wright‘s latest feast for the eyes is as detail-oriented as his previous films. However, the costuming of the characters is not usually associated with Wright’s directorial style; it’s there and important but not the first thought when identifying a movie by the director.

6 hours ago

If and when Harvey Weinstein decides to try and return to Hollywood for a comeback, he won’t find too many friendly faces welcoming him. On the business end, almost anybody with a project associated with The Weinstein Company is trying to sever ties. Heyday Films and StudioCanal are trying to reclaim “Paddington 2,” one of the movies Bob Weinstein recently said was the next release from the company.

7 hours ago

Welcome to another edition of Over/Under Movies, the podcast in which we choose one overrated film and one underrated film – similar in tone, style, genre, or however we may see fit – and discuss them.

On this episode, my co-host Oktay Ege Kozak and I are joined by Robert Ham (Paste Magazine, Portland Mercury, XRay.fm) t0 tackle two whimsical, melancholic comedies about moving on when you’re stuck. We turn things around and start with the underrated pick on this episode, which is Bill Forsyth‘s underseen 1984 gem “Comfort and Joy” (not to be confused with the 2003 Lifetime movie of the same name).

Liam Neeson, cinematically speaking, is just trying to live his life when, lately, things have been getting very real. Three “Taken” movies, that one where he was supposed to fight wolves but mostly didn’t, that other one where he ran all night, that time he stopped airplane trouble, and that other time Common was an assassin — dude can’t be chill for five minutes without something going wrong.

Woody Allen’s Next Film Reportedly Features Controversial Sexual Relationships

8 hours ago

Woody Allen‘s comments on the Harvey Weinstein scandal haven’t endeared him to those who already have a low opinion of the filmmaker due to his personal life. “The whole Harvey Weinstein thing is very sad for everybody involved,” he said last week. “Tragic for the poor women that were involved, sad for Harvey that his life is so messed up. There’s no winners in that, it’s just very, very sad and tragic for those poor women that had to go through that.”

However, the director’s additional comments that, “you also don’t want it to lead to a witch hunt atmosphere, a Salem atmosphere, where every guy in an office who winks at a woman is suddenly having to call a lawyer to defend himself,” raised eyebrows, to put it lightly.

Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, ‘Killing of a Sacred Deer’ And A Recording Malfunction

8 hours ago

Honestly, I was mortified.

I’ve done more phoners than I can recall. There have been times where I spoke with  three well known actors, directors or producers for back to back-to-back interviews within less than 90 minutes.  I’ve taken phoner interview calls at 7 Am (not my favorite) and at 1 Am (handy for those London based folks).  I’ve had Ups and delivery men interrupt calls with Oscar winners.  I’ve made it through interviews where I could barely hear the subject on the other line, yet still found a way to pull out a coherent quote or two.

Michael Mann Talks New Project ‘Comanche,’ Praises ‘Avatar’

9 hours ago

Michael Mann doesn’t put projects in front of the camera, until they’re absolutely ready, but it doesn’t mean he’s some kind of Stanley Kubrick perfectionist. The director still has “Ferrari” brewing, and is at work on the TV series “Hue 1968,” however, there’s a couple more feature film projects cooking on the stove.

Stopping in Paris for the Lumière de Lyon Film Festival, the director spoke with Liberation and revealed he’s got an intriguing sounding western on his desk.

‘Phantom Thread’ Trailer: Paul Thomas Anderson & Daniel Day-Lewis Get Fashionable

9 hours ago

In a world where most good things become over familiar, Daniel Day-Lewis is like a comet that streaks across the sky every five years to shame other actors on their lack of dedication. We haven’t seen Day-Lewis since he won the Oscar for his title role in “Lincoln” and supposedly the upcoming “Phantom Thread” will be his last ever film role. To be fair, he’s claimed this before, in the ’90s when he disappeared and reappeared as a cobbler in Italy, but this time actually feels final and it is true that the three-time Best Actor winner has little left to prove.

‘Journey’s End’ Trailer: Fear & Courage In The Trenches Of Wwi

10 hours ago

When it comes to war movies, Wwi doesn’t tend to get the same attention as WWII. While “Wonder Woman” marched through the trenches this summer, films set solely about the bloody war end all war have been a bit fewer and far between, but “Journey’s End” certainly makes an impression.
