‘Onward’ Features Pixar’s First Openly LGBTQ Character, Voiced by Lena Waithe

Disney and Pixar are finally giving us our first openly queer animated character — so we hope. In recent years, Disney has made tiny little baby steps toward greater LGBTQ representation, with an “exclusively gay moment” in the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast, a minor gay character in Avengers: Endgame, and the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it same-sex kiss of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. But those moments ended up feeling like insubstantial excuses for the House of Mouse to pat itself ...

‘Jurassic World 3’ Might Bring Back Another ‘Jurassic Park’ Character

Oh Timmy, Timmy, Timmy. You were part of the original 1993 Jurassic Park, a film that shaped a generation of dinosaur lovers and launched a franchise that still sends chills down our spines today. Your wide-eyed look remains iconic. Your battle with the electric fence will never be forgotten. And, according to your actor Joseph Mazzello, you may be coming back in Jurassic World 3 for yet another round with that darned electric fence. Mazzello, who recently appeared in the Oscar-winning Bohem...

‘My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising’ Review: Dazzling Fight Sequences With a Plot That’s Less Than Ultra

The longstanding problem with theatrical movies for popular ongoing anime shows is that they’ll inevitably end up being mostly okay. By their nature, they don’t — and can’t — affect the course of the series. Movies for shows like Pokémon, Naruto, Bleach, and others sit in the weird space of owing their existence to said series and of being essentially non-canonical, expensive pieces of fan-service. My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising does little to break this mold. The second theatrical movie for t...

Hidden ‘Westworld’ Trailer Found on Viral Marketing Website Reveals New Footage

The Two Episodes That Transformed ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ From a Good Show Into a Great One

When Avatar: The Last Airbender debuted on Nickelodeon in 2005, there were no signs to indicate it was anything other than a silly kid’s cartoon beyond its richly imaginative world and the painstaking research that went into preserving the east and southeast Asian cultural influences. It was goofy, wacky, with a broad humor and even broader characters that were easy to categorize: the mother figure, the kid, the comic relief. The low-stakes adventures that the main trio went on were often neatl...

‘The Call of the Wild’ Review: A Heartfelt Survival Story Buried in a Mush of Uncanny CGI

Most attempts to adapt the works of Jack London to the big screen have, more often than not, resulted in a neutered final product. Chris Sanders‘ live-action/computer-animated adaptation of The Call of the Wild falls firmly in this category. Gone is the savage romance of London’s short novel in all its untamed glory, instead, The Call of the Wild is a Disney-fied The Revenant — though it’s even less a survival film than it is a schmaltzy celebration of that bond between dog and human. At parts,...

‘Doc Savage’ TV Series in the Works From ‘Fast & Furious’ Producer

Hollywood has long been interested in adapting pulp hero Doc Savage to the screen, but even though various movie versions have been in the works over the years, it seems like the Man of Bronze is heading to television instead. Sony Pictures Television is developing a Doc Savage TV series from Condé Nast Entertainment and Original Film, the Sony-based production company run by Fast & Furious producer Neal H. Moritz. Deadline brings word about the new Doc Savage show, revealing that it “will ch...

‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ Adds Carl Lumbly, Possibly as Another Black Captain America

In Marvel Studios’ first live-action Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, we expect to see Falcon, AKA Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), grapple with the responsibility of becoming the new Captain America after the events of Avengers: Endgame left Steve Rogers an old man in the current Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline.

‘Onward’ Early Buzz: A Sweet and Emotional Adventure That’s Missing the Usual Pixar Magic

Just being an animated film from Pixar is a vote of confidence, with audiences holding the studio’s movies to the highest of standards. But could Pixar’s latest film, the fantasy-comedy Onward, live up to those standards? According to the Onward early buzz, opinions are mixed. The first reactions to Onward are out, and while some are enchanted with the Tom Holland and Chris Pratt-starring road trip adventure movie about two elf brothers on a quest to resurrect their dead father for a day, other...

‘The Saint’: ‘Rocketman’s Dexter Fletcher to Direct Paramount’s Thriller Remake

Since 2016, Paramount Pictures has been interested in producing a new version of The Saint, which began as a series of novels before becoming a TV series starring future James Bond actor Roger Moore and then a big budget movie in 1997 starring Val Kilmer. Now Paramount has finally found its The Saint remake director: Dexter Fletcher, the filmmaker behind last year’s Elton John musical Rocketman. Variety reports that Fletcher will take the reins on The Saint, which follows a British protagoni...

James Bond’s knives are out in No Time to Die, which features an exciting Knives Out reunion for Daniel Craig and Bond series newcomer Ana de Armas.

Samuel L. Jackson to Play a Retired Hitman in New Movie, Finally Doing Something Different For Once

I always love it when actors test their limits and push themselves to try things they’ve never done before. That’s why I’m thrilled that Samuel L. Jackson will be playing – get this – a retired hitman in a new untitled movie from the directors of Focus. Jackson as a hitman? What a concept! All snark aside, Jackson has played hitmen on screen before (famously doing so in Pulp Fiction and The Hitman’s Bodyguard), so it obviously makes sense that a risk-averse company would want to finance a mov...

‘Jurassic World 3’ is Bringing Back Jake Johnson and Omar Sy

Jurassic World 3 will feature more than the return of Colin Trevorrow in the director’s chair.

The duo were last seen making an escape from Isla Nublar as the escaped dinosaurs went on their rampage.

‘Indiana Jones 5’ Starts Production in Two Months, and We Can Already Hear the Whip Cracking

Next week, you’ll be able to see Harrison Ford fight the elements with a very good dog named Buck in an adaptation of the Call of the Wild, the classic novel by Jack London.

While making the press rounds for Call of the Wild, Ford confirmed the Indiana Jones sequel starts shooting in a couple months. Find out what else he said about Indy’s return below. We’re n...

Sony is Making a ‘Crossfire’ Movie Adaptation (But Don’t Get Too Excited, Because It’s Not About the Board Game)

Though the Crossfire board game was originally released in the early 1970s, ’90s kids will surely remember its ridiculous, over-the-top, and awesomely cheesy commercials with kids in leather jackets duking it out in the game while lightning flashed and an epic song played in the background. Now Sony has decided to make a Crossfire movie, but it’s not a futuristic sci-fi feature set in a world where life or death is decided by who wins the game. (Where’s that movie, Hollywood?) Instead, the stud...

Marvel Studios’ First Gay Couple Revealed in ‘Eternals’ – Here’s Who They Are

We’ve known for a while that Eternals, the upcoming Marvel Studios movie directed by Chloe Zhao, is supposed to be the first MCU movie to include LGBTQ representation in a significant way. The studio has had an…interesting relationship with LGBTQ portrayals on screen thus far, but it sounds like a major barrier is being broken in Eternals. Read on to find out which actors are playing those roles. In a new interview with Logo (via io9), actor Haaz Sleiman (The Visitor, Amazon’s Jack Ryan) reve...

‘El Camino’ Behind the Scenes Featurette: Inside the ‘Breaking Bad’ Reunion With Bryan Cranston

AMC has been playing a marathon of Breaking Bad in preparation for the on-air debut of El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie this Sunday, but nothing hits that nostalgia harder than Bryan Cranston in a bald cap, warmly talking about reuniting with his longtime co-star Aaron Paul.

Joe Carnahan’s ‘The Raid’ Remake Has a New Title, Will No Longer Be a Remake

What’s going on with The Raid remake? The project was announced back in 2011, but has yet to materialize (which might not be such a bad thing). Well, now there’s an update from director Joe Carnahan that reveals the film is still happening, and it has a new title. But that’s not all – the movie Carnahan is making is technically no longer a remake of The Raid. Confused yet? In case you need a quick update, here’s the deal. In 2011, Gareth Evans released the groundbreaking action film The Raid...

‘The Iron Mask’ Trailer: It’s Jackie Chan vs. Arnold Schwarzenegger, But Only for Maybe 5 Minutes

What kind of movie could bring together the likes of action legends like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan? A movie in which they probably won’t appear much at all. The Iron Mask, originally released in China in 2019 under the title Journey to China: The Mystery of Iron Mask, is a Russian-Chinese production that managed to score both Schwarzenegger and Chan — except they’re not the stars of the film. That honor goes to Jason Flemyng, who plays an English cartographer sent on a journey to ma...
