6 hours ago

Walt Disney Studios and Lucasfilm’s long awaited “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” blasted off with a world premiere at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles Saturday night and left the passionate fans on hand left immensely satisfied.

The experience began – and Disney wonderfully made sure it was an experience –  with an incredible white carpet featuring a gigantic At-at Walker and rebel cannons blasting onlookers.  The premiere itself began with introductions of producers Kathleen Kennedy, Ram Bergman and legendary composer John Williams taking the stage.

Everyone Is Still Going To See ‘Coco’ [Box Office]

9 hours ago

As Disney prepares to become a giant media behemoth with their acquisition of Fox, you might want to ask yourself if you really want one studio dominating the landscape. The mouse house has owned the box office for three straight weeks now, and will probably hold the crown for a few more to come.

“Coco” stayed on top at the multiplex, with the Pixar movie pulling in $18 million.

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ First Reactions: The Force Is With Rian Johnson

12 hours ago

No spoilers don’t worry. We’d behead anyone that tried to spoil “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” (and really, what kind of heel would you have to be to do that?). Lucasfilm’s latest installment in the ongoing “Star Wars” saga premiered last night—as if you couldn’t tell from the non-stop social media red carpet photos and video—and it appears that the Force is with its director Rian Johnson’s film.

‘The Square’ Sweeps European Film Awards

14 hours ago

There was another big event last night besides the world premiere of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” While everyone was freaking out about porgs (or whatever), the European Film Awards were handed out in Berlin. And one film ruled them all.

Ruben Ostlund‘s comedic takedown of modern art and the ignorance of the bourgeois, “The Square,” swept the ceremony winning Best European Film, Best European Comedy, Best Actor for Claes Bang, and Best Director.

‘Jessica Jones’ Season 2: Watch The First Footage; Series Premieres March 2018

9 December 2017 1:40 PM, PST

*Spoilers for “Jessica Jones” season one.* Read no further if you haven’t watched it. If you did watch the Netflix superhero series from Marvel you’d know that the gaslighting psychological-abuser antagonist Kilgrave (David Tennant) was killed by the shows reluctant, boozer hero Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter). But that doesn’t mean he’s gone for good.

‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ Trailer: Sony’s Animated Webslinger Leaps Into Action

9 December 2017 11:21 AM, PST

When Sony and Marvel Studios announced they were working on a reboot of “Spider-Man,” many fans were hoping that they would actually start with Miles Morales instead of Peter Parker. Debuting in the comics in 2011, Miles Morales became Spider-Man to replace a dead Peter Parker in Marvel Comics’ Ultimate Universe. He was hugely popular, developing a rabid fanbase. Unfortunately for these fans, Marvel and Sony decided to go with Peter Parker for their live-action films.

Crossing The Frame In Sofia Coppola’s “Lost In Translation”

9 December 2017 7:37 AM, PST

Within its premise, “Lost in Translation” reveals much about the human condition and connection, how people are brought together and separated. Sofia Coppola’s film goes beyond telling this to the audience, instead framing the main characters in a way that communicates the same sentiments of disconnection and togetherness.

Golden Globes Nomination Predictions: ‘The Post,’ ‘Three Billboards,’ ‘Handmaid’s Tale,’ ‘Will & Grace’

8 December 2017 4:04 PM, PST

It’s that time of year again. That annual rite of passage where movie and TV fans hold their tongue for the 83 or so members of the venerable Hollywood Foreign Press Association (aka HFPA) to shower the global news marketplace with their Golden Globes nominations.  The irony is that in 2017 the HFPA’s little January fete seems like comfort food compared to the constant craziness going on in the world in general  (or at least in the White House).

Armie Hammer Apologizes For Casey Affleck Comments

8 December 2017 3:13 PM, PST

Somebody’s PR machine is very hard at work. Last month, Armie Hammer weighed in on the ongoing #metoo conversation in Hollywood, and pointed out the double standard during last year’s awards season when Nate Parker — writer, director, and star of “The Birth Of Nation” — was asked to answer questions about the details of his 1999 rape trial (he was acquitted), which resurfaced in the press.

Alejandro G. Innarritu Raves About ‘The Shape Of Water’: “It’s A Love Letter To Love”

8 December 2017 2:01 PM, PST

Any fan of Guillermo del Toro will tell you that a del Toro film is truly unique. Even when he’s part of an existing franchise like with his film “Blade II,” he’s able to infuse enough of his unmistakable creature effects and creativity to elevate a film that features Wesley Snipes as a comic book vampire hunter. So, when you hear that there’s an amazing film that is a love story featuring a fish person, there’s really no doubt in your mind who the filmmaker is behind the story.

Louis C.K. Buying The Rights Back To ‘I Love You, Daddy’

8 December 2017 1:06 PM, PST

When allegations emerged last month against Louis C.K. — which he confirmed as true — reaction from Hollywood was swift. Indie distributor The Orchard scrapped the release of his film “I Love You, Daddy,” HBO dropped all of his programming from their platforms, and FX put projects associated with writer/director/actor/producer/comedian under review. Well, Louis C.K. is taking a break from his plan to “step back and take a long time to listen” to make some business moves.

‘The Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ Trailer: Face The Final Deadly Labyrinth

8 December 2017 12:30 PM, PST

The final chapter in “The Maze Runner” trilogy is here and….does anybody care? Delayed due to a near fatal on-set accident involving the film’s star Dylan O’Brien, “The Maze Runner: The Death  Cure” now arrives in cinemas in the usually dry month of January. Granted, the series has managed to find an audience, but are they still invested?

Co-starring Rosa SalazarKaya ScodelarioKi Hong LeeThomas Brodie-Sangster, Patricia Clarkson, Giancarlo Esposito, and Barry Pepper, I can honestly tell you I don’t know very much about this franchise.

‘The Crown’ Season 2 Trailer: The Monarchy Faces Crisis

8 December 2017 12:26 PM, PST

I don’t know what you’re doing tonight, but I’ll be curled up at home, getting my British monarchy on with “The Crown” season two. If you think this series is all tea and crumpets, guess again, because the award-winning show has plenty of political intrigue and monocle popping developments.

In case you’re just returning from the moon, the series is led by Claire Foy (the next Lisbeth Salander!), playing Queen Elizabeth II who has to handle world affairs while also dealing with a marriage that seems to be constantly in trouble, and a sister who can’t help but rebel and get into trouble at every turn.

Andrea Arnold To Direct ‘Big Little Lies’ Season 2

8 December 2017 12:05 PM, PST

If you asked me yesterday if “Big Little Lies” needed a second season, I would’ve said without hesitation, “No.” The show, initially a limited series, was a perfectly formed story, with an ending that left a slight cliffhanger, but the storylines resolved. Well, popular demand has spoken and a second season is coming, and God help me, I’m going to have to watch.

Deadline reports that Andrea Arnold has been tapped to direct all seven episodes of the forthcoming season.

‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Trailer: A Female Cyborg Becomes A Warrior

8 December 2017 11:34 AM, PST

While “Alita: Battle Angel” was announced ages ago, I have to admit, I completely forgot about it, and figured it was one of those projects that slipped into development hell. It would be easy to understand why. An expensive (the budget is rumored to be near $200 million) adaptation of Yukito Kishiro‘s beloved manga, with no A-list stars — in today’s climate of branded blockbusters, it doesn’t seem like an obvious green light.

First Look: Taron Egerton In Gritty ‘Robin Hood’

8 December 2017 10:55 AM, PST

This ain’t your grandpa’s “Robin Hood.” Farewell to Errol Flynn‘s incarnation or even Kevin Costner‘s hunky, blockbuster take. Next year’s reboot (or whatever) of the character is going to get some dirt under the fingernails and some blood on the knuckles. Yep, it’s going to be gritty.

“My Robin Hood, as with Kevin Costner‘s, he’s a soldier. We find him out in Syria.

Damien Chazelle Praises ‘Dunkirk’: “It’s Cinema As Music”

8 December 2017 9:56 AM, PST

On paper, “Dunkirk” probably shouldn’t have been a massive success. It’s a war film about a battle that, at least in the United States, not many people heard about. It’s a film that is epic, without being three hours long, and doesn’t have any huge name stars that these sorts of films always have. Yet, “Dunkirk” is one of the biggest films of the year, and sure to draw major attention during awards season.

‘There Will Be Blood’: The Story Behind The Original Eli Sunday

8 December 2017 9:39 AM, PST

Sometimes, all it takes for cinematic myth to take hold is one paragraph in an article from The New York Times Magazine on November 11, 2007. The profile by Lynn Hirschberg about Paul Thomas Anderson‘s “There Will Be Blood” revealed that during the shoot, the original actor slated to play Eli Sunday was fired, leading to Paul Dano having to double his work as both Paul and Eli Sunday.
