Russo Brothers Confirm They’re Misleading Audiences Again With ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailers

When it comes to Marvel movie trailers, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that we shouldn’t believe what we see. Spider-Man was hidden from an airport fight shot in the Captain America: Civil War trailer, the Thor: Ragnarok trailers faked out audiences by including a key shot of Thor with both of his eyes, and an Avengers: Infinity War trailer threw us off by including a shot of Hulk running with Team Wakanda that never even appeared in the film. Now directors Anthony and Joe Russo have confir...

10 novels that brilliantly capture the American experience

Literature expands our ability to feel empathy and inspires compassion.These 10 novels tackle some facet of the American experience. The list includes a fictional retelling of the first Native American to graduate from Harvard, and hiding out in inner-city Newark.We call it "getting lost" in a novel, but what we find there is often more impactful than any nonfiction work can offer. Literature makes us more empathic and intelligent. Storytelling is how we bond, as tribes and a planet. A powerful...

This Week In Trailers: The Brink, Long Day’s Journey Into Night, One Nation Under Stress, Watergate

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we revisit the 2018 midterms, understand why we’re dying younger, give in to an incredible vision, and dissect a crime that took dow...

‘Captive State’ Co-Writer Erica Beeney Discusses the Influence of History [Interview]

Captive State is a sci-fi thriller that moves like clockwork. Director Rupert Wyatt‘s film always maintains its propulsion without any redundancies or large chunks of tedious exposition. Like the characters trying to start an uprising in a world dominated by aliens, Wyatt and co-writer Erica Beeney always keep their story moving. Compared to other bloated or gigantic alien invasion movies, Captive State is a refreshingly minimalist and stripped down sci-fi movie. Similar to Wyatt’s Rise of the ...

‘Adopt a Highway’ Review: An Honest, Open-Road Ballad About Life’s Unpredictability [SXSW]

Actor Logan Marshall-Green ’s directorial debut Adopt A Highway feels tailor-made for Austin’s South by Southwest Film Festival. It has nothing to do with horror, mind you, despite Blumhouse’s production banner. What could double as an acoustic country ballad whispers a nomad folk tale about one simple task: getting by. Indie bloodlines run through Marshall-Green’s jailhouse poetry without overly romanticized narratives, more appropriately about passing moments than revelations. It’s about mu...

Since we’ve only had a short theatrical teaser trailer and a Super Bowl spot for the movie, fans were excited to finally get a good solid look at some brand spankin’ new footage.

New Report Indicates Bryan Singer Fired From ‘Red Sonja’ Movie

Last month, we got word that Red Sonja was on hold in the wake of even more sexual misconduct allegations against director Bryan Singer. Now, it looks like Singer is officially off the movie. The news of Singer’s removal came unceremoniously, buried within a much larger story about a completely different topic. Now let us all cross our fingers and hope we never have to hear about Bryan Singer again. THR has a lengthy piece this week about the scandal surrounding Warner Bros. head Kevin Tsuji...

‘The Highwaymen’ Review: Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson Take Aim, But Their Movie Misses the Target [SXSW]

John Lee Hancock ’s The Highwaymen is a poster child for Netflix Originals when it comes to noting how “unparalleled creative freedom” isn’t always beneficial. Cinematography paints an early 1900s Texas frontier where Wild West lawlessness gets a Tommy Gun upgrade, and performances are as prolific as the names attached, but oh how dusty a biographical drama that cannot sustain over 120 minutes. Breathless prairies with Dust Bowl destitution become repetitive; characters over explained after w...

‘Long Shot’ Review: A Vocal Modern Rom-Com Carried By Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron [SXSW]

Jonathan Levine’s Long Shot is a sufficiently safety-wrapped package of vocal demands for change structured around equally predictable rom-com beats (watch the trailer). Not the worst thing in the world by any stretch of emphasis, mind you. Cutesy Hallmark signatures are traded for shared gender relationship roles, highlighting women’s ongoing strife in daily global environments while romance flourishes under often redefined subgenre frameworks. Liz Hannah and Dan Sterling’s screenplay says les...

Entire television series shouldn’t be critiqued on pilots alone, but that’s all What We Do In The Shadows had to offer eager South By Southwest victims (aside from Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s uproarious improv introduction). Episodics often require a few inaugural chapters before hitting momentum strides, and pilots bare the weight of hypnotizing audiences while establishing tonality to come. In this bubble, FX’s new take on What We Do In The Shadows transplants the same approach, expre...
