Ghostbusters: Afterlife Director Jason Reitman Addresses Whether Ghostbusters II Is Actually Canon

For many long-running film franchises, it's become a thing now where the latest sequel and/or soft reboot often chooses to overlook previous installments, drawing a line between its narrative and the first or second movie and skipping over everything thereafter. "Terminator: Dark Fate" did it, as did the 2018 "Halloween" (and "Halloween H20," for that matter). They were talking about doing it with Neil Blomkamp's abortive "Alien" sequel, and there are older examples, too, like "Superman Returns,...

It's A Good Day For Bowie Fans As Brett Morgan Announces A Top Secret Project On The Iconic Musician

We've yet to have a tried and true David Bowie documentary that really gets into the nitty-gritty of who Ziggy Stardust was, on and off-stage. Now, we may get just that from Brett Morgan, the filmmaker behind "Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck."According to Variety, the director — who is also known for his work on "Jane," "The Runaways," and "The Kid Stays in the Picture" — has been "finalizing" a "top-secret" Bowie project, which is based on "thousands of hours of rare performance footage" of the le...

Dear David Now Has A Director In John McPhail From Anna And The Apocalypse

Artist Adam Ellis has brought a lot of joy into our lives with comics featuring ridiculous topics like gender reveal parties that reveal the baby is going to be a lizard, "Squid Game" workers using dalgona candy to ask if a competitor has a crush on them, and the uncomfortable possibility that mermaids are fish heads with human bodies. With 1.7 million followers on Instagram, it's next to impossible that someone who uses the internet hasn't seen at least something drawn by Ellis. Yes, I'm includ...

The 18 Best Action Movie Actors Ranked

Gone are the days in which a marquee name could draw in a crowd all on its own. Studios now tend to prioritize projects based on their relation to established franchises or source material, and the number of actors who can successfully sell tickets for roles that aren't part of a recurring series or comic book adaptation are remarkably low.Ironically, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is perhaps the only actor of his generation with a consistent fanbase, but despite his winning personality, Johnson's tr...

Movies Like Nightcrawler That Are Definitely Worth Watching

Dan Gilroy's "Nightcrawler" dropped in 2014, a year in which Americans by and large trusted the media. That statement feels false, and yet not only did the 2021 Edelman Trust Barometer find that fewer than half of U.S. residents trust mainstream news sources, but that this is actually the first time that has happened in the nation's recent history. It's easy to see why. The country has moved past "fake news" and into "post-truth," with people turning to sources that support their inherent belief...
