Watch: James Franco Gets Some Christmas Charity from Cecily Strong in ‘SNL’ Highlight

14 hours ago

It's worth noting that for all the empathy and grand humor that James Franco's The Disaster Artist evinces for its subject, Tommy Wiseau and the making of his notorious The Room, much of the movie comes off like a Saturday Night Live sketch. As a director, Franco's filmography thus far has been marked by plenty of insights and fascinating ideas but creating a visual and thematic backbone that's perceivable throughout has never been his strong suit. His movies often feel like a bunch of scenes of varying quality strung together, and that is more true of … »

Weekend Box Office: ‘Coco’ Takes Top Spot Over ‘Justice League’ & ‘The Disaster Artist’

15 hours ago

By the end of today, Disney and Pixar's Coco will have won the weekend for the third weekend in a row, beating out competition from Justice League, The Disaster Artist, and Wonder. This places the animated delight in a somewhat elite club of 2017 titles that have held court for three weeks straight at the box office, alongside good movies (Split) and bad (The Fate of the Furious & The Hitman's Bodyguard). At the end of its run in theaters, Coco will likely be in the top 20 box office hits of 2017, in the same area as … »

New ‘Ready Player One’ Trailer Further Reveals Spielberg’s Return to Blockbuster Filmmaking

15 hours ago

A new trailer has been released for Ready Player One, which further reveals Steven Spielberg's highly-anticipated sci-fi adaptation. The film follows Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan), who joins a worldwide contest to find an actual Easter egg hidden in the Oasis by its creator, so that after his death a worthy person would take control of this expansive virtual world. But of course, there’s a nefarious organization ready to swoop in and find it themselves so they can monetize it all and keep it only for wealthy customers. Wade then teams up with other “gunters” to find … »

First ‘Sense8′ Series Finale Featurette Celebrates the Fans & Teases the Cluster’s Last Adventure

18 hours ago

As cult shows go, Sense8 is far more inviting than most. The central idea of the beloved Netflix series, that many disparate people can be part of a grouping called a "cluster," stresses inclusion above nearly everything else, even as worldwide catastrophes and evil plots send them on adventures across the globe. For the Wachowski siblings, who created the series and wrote the entire first season alongside J. Michael Straczysnki, this has always been a major thematic obsession but Sense8 brings the idea of finding a supportive network (or a kind of proxy family) in others that may seem completely … »

Warner Bros. has unveiled the first poster for Steven Spielberg’s highly anticipated Ready Player One.

The ‘Venom’ Movie Will Be Primarily Based on These Two Comic Runs

9 December 2017 3:59 PM, PST

Sony Pictures took the stage at Comic-Con Experience 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil earlier today, and while the panel served as the splashy debut for the first trailer for the animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse movie, Sony also took a minute to tease the upcoming live-action Venom movie. While no footage or even an image was revealed, Director Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) appeared live via satellite to fans to shed some light on what to expect, while Tom Hardy popped into frame at the end to surprise folks. Hardy will be portraying the title character of the … »

New ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Featurette Reveals How the New Planets Were Created

9 December 2017 3:00 PM, PST

Ahead of the world premiere tonight, Disney has released a brand new behind-the-scenes featurette for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The film was kept under lock and key throughout shooting, just as The Force Awakens was, but that didn’t prevent writer/director Rian Johnson from using real locations to bring the environments of The Last Jedi to life. This featurette highlights those locations and singles out how much of a difference it makes when filmmakers go out of their way to use real environments rather than try to craft everything on a soundstage and fill out the … »

First ‘Jessica Jones’ Season 2 Trailer Reveals Premiere Date

9 December 2017 2:38 PM, PST

The first Jessica Jones Season 2 trailer has arrived, heralding the return of Marvel’s best Netflix series. Moreover, while this initial trailer teases footage and a new story arc for Krysten Ritter’s hard-drinking titular character, it also reveals when you’ll be able to watch the new season: it premieres on March 8, 2018. While a Thursday launch date is atypical for Netflix shows, March 8, 2018 is International Women’s Day, so it appears the streaming service made an exception for a very deliberate launch date. Melissa Rosenberg returns as executive producer and showrunner of Season … »

Sebastian Stan on ‘I, Tonya’, Working with Margot Robbie, and ‘Avengers 4′

9 December 2017 12:33 PM, PST

Directed by Craig Gillespie and based on unbelievable true events, the darkly comedic I, Tonya tells the story of American figure skater Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie, in a truly stand-out performance and one of the best of 2017), who went from being the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition to being a part of one of the most sensational and infamous scandals in sports history. Harding’s career as a skater was as challenging as her home life, and even though she had some major highs that made you want to root for her, she … »

Friday Box Office: ‘Coco’ Looks to Lead Box Office for Third Straight Weekend

9 December 2017 9:52 AM, PST

In its third frame, Coco looks to be the winner once again, if Friday totals are any indication to weekend takes. Pixar and Disney's latest blockbuster, which may also be Pixar's best since Wall-e, has currently made about $121 million domestically, whereas its global total is hovering in the $172 million range. By the end of its run at the multiplexes across this nation, Coco will probably land in the same arena as Cars 3, Pixar's other big release of the year, and will do so without the name recognition that the third Cars movie had … »

Animated Spider-Man Movie Title Revealed Ahead of First Trailer

9 December 2017 7:23 AM, PST

After the epic bungling of the Spider-Man lore that gave way to the Andrew Garfield movies, the friendly neighborhood web-slinger seems to finally be on the right track at the box office. Spider-Man: Homecoming, easily the best of the Spider-Man films made thus far, is currently in fourth place at both the yearly domestic box office (right below Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2) as well as the worldwide box office. A sequel is in the works and the character will likely be a lynchpin in the next two Avengers movies at the very least. And … »

‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Recap: “A Life Spent” – Enter the Thunderdome!

8 December 2017 7:01 PM, PST

Welcome back, true believers! Following the introduction of a strange new world that the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have been dropped into where the earth has been destroyed and the remnants of humanity are slaves to the Kree, Coulson and the gang attempt to find their way home while simultaneously fighting the nefarious dealings of the “Blues." While still clinging to the dark overtones of the fourth season, Season 5 tends to skew more often toward the nihilistic, brooding atmosphere closer to Battlestar Galactica more than anything else. This season is at its best when it … »

‘The Terror’ Teaser Trailer Reveals AMC’s New Horror Series

8 December 2017 4:58 PM, PST

AMC has found extraordinary success with their long-running horror series The Walking Dead, but with The Terror, the network is serving up an entirely different kind of spooky series.

Faced with treacherous conditions and dwindling supplies, the crew battles the elements, and each other, as they try to survive. “The Terror captures a … »

First ‘Jessica Jones’ Season 2 Image Shows Kilgrave Still Haunting Our Hero

8 December 2017 2:59 PM, PST

This past summer, we got a glimpse of Kilgrave's return to Jessica Jones. The villain, played by David Tennant, was the central villain of the show's first season, as Jessica (Krysten Ritter) dealt with the Ptsd from being mind-controlled and sexually assaulted by him. While there was no real mention of the Purple Man (as he's called in the comics) in The Defenders, it looks like Jessica Jones' second season has not forgotten the trauma he caused. As I've written before [Spoiler warning from here on out] we don’t know what exactly Tennant’s … »

First Look at Margot Robbie as Queen Elizabeth in ‘Mary, Queen of Scots’

8 December 2017 2:08 PM, PST

From Shakespeare to Game of Thrones, the British royalty as always served as keen inspiration for high drama.
