‘Trading Paint’ Trailer: John Travolta is a Washed-Up Race Car Driver

John Travolta‘s film choices have become increasingly, let’s say…interesting. After the 2018 two-fer that was Gotti and Speed Kills, the actor is ringing in 2019 with Trading Paint, a sports drama in which he stars as a washed-up race car driver for whom it’s “been a long time” since he was “somebody.” Cheers for unintentionally meta-dialogue! Trading Paint Trailer Travolta stars as veteran race car driver Sam, whose unfortunately named son Cam (Toby Sebastian) is resentful of always ha...

Dario Argento is Not a Fan of the ‘Suspiria’ Remake

Remakes are par for the course in Hollywood, yet they still mostly inspire disdain or suspicion among audiences. Especially when that remake is of a lauded horror classic like Dario Argento‘s  Suspiria. But director Luca Guadagnino leapt those hurdles by making a film that was drastically different to Argento’s 1977 original: reimagining the Italian director’s kaleidoscopic nightmare as a grotesque display of body horror. It was polarizing to say the least, but went over well with critics, who ...

AMC Theatres, Regal Cinemas & Cinemark Won’t Play ‘Roma’ in Their Best Picture Showcases

Even though Roma ended up with a total of 10 Oscar nominations this morning, including Best Picture, that’s not a good enough reason for AMC Theatres, Regal Cinemas and Cinemark to pack away their grudge with Netflix. Every year, the two movie theater chains host a showcase of all the Best Picture nominees, but since Alfonso Cuarón‘s critically acclaimed Roma is a Netflix movie that didn’t stick to the traditional theatrical release plans, they won’t include the film in their line-up.

‘The Punisher’ Showrunner Already Has An Idea For Season 3 [Interview]

The return of Marvel’s The Punisher comes at a precarious time for Marvel shows on Netflix. Along with Luke Cage and Iron Fist, Daredevil was recently cancelled after its third season, leading m any to wonder why Netflix is dropping them.

Netflix Reveals Users’ ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ Choices and Teases More Interactive Entertainment

Netflix is notoriously stingy when it comes to releasing any information about its user base and their viewing habits – except, of course, when that data makes the company look good or its social media managers are allowed to have a bit of fun with its audience. Now the company has pulled back the veil of secrecy and offered a brief peek at some of the Black Mirror: Bandersnatch choices users made when watching the interactive movie.

Apple Signs Deal With ‘Friday Night Lights’ Producer Jason Katims, Courts ‘X-Men’ Producer Simon Kinberg for New Sci-Fi Show

Apple is continuing to poach talent from all across Hollywood for their nascent film and television division, and they may have just added two names to their ever-growing list of collaborators. The tech company is “near a deal” for a new science fiction series that hails from Simon Kinberg, the writer/producer who’s been shepherding the X-Men film franchise for years. Plus, they’ve managed to lure Jason Katims, the producer of beloved TV shows like Friday Night Lights, away from his longtime ho...

Critically-Acclaimed ‘The Kominsky Method’ Gets Season 2 Renewal at Netflix

If you’ve been paying attention to the awards circuit over the past few months, you’ve probably noticed that one Netflix show keeps popping up again and again: The Kominsky Method, which stars Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin. The series hails from creator Chuck Lorre, the guy behind Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory, so naturally I ignored it when it premiered late last year. But the show has been slowly racking up awards and appearing on “best of” lists, and now Netflix has officially ...

‘Five Feet Apart’ Trailer: It’s ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ But with Cystic Fibrosis

If The Fault in Our Stars warmed your heart and also made you stream crocodile tears, then you’re probably already looking forward to Five Feet Apart. Not unlike the aforementioned adaptation of John Green’s book, this movie follows a 17-year old girl named Stella (Haley Lu Richardson of Split) who is afflicted with cystic fibrosis, keeping her confined to a hospital and unable to make human contact. That becomes all the more challening when she meets a fellow cystic fibrosis patient named Will...

John Boyega Teases “Visually Crazy” Moment in ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’

John Boyega has witnessed some pretty wild things on Star Wars movie sets: the Poe Dameron-led X-wing rescue on Takodana, Han Solo’s death, and Luke Skywalker’s incredible reveal at the end of The Last Jedi.

Netflix’s Midwestern Gothic ‘The Devil All The Time’ Has a Ridiculously Star-Studded Cast

Drew Struzan’s ‘Blade Runner’ Poster Will Be On Sale This Week

Drew Struzan is arguably one of the most influential pop artists of all time, responsible for creating the iconic movie posters for films like the Star Wars saga, the Back to the Future trilogy, the Indiana Jones saga, The Thing, and many more. He also created a poster for Ridley Scott‘s 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner, and since we’re now living in 2019 – the year Blade Runner takes place – it seems appropriate that Struzan’s poster would be back in the spotlight.

Netflix’s Oscar Campaign for ‘Roma’ Could Be the Most Expensive in a Decade

Netflix is going for the gold statuette by dropping the equivalent of half a metric ton of gold on its Roma Oscar campaign. The streaming giant is reportedly spending upwards of $20 million on wooing awards body voters for Alfonso Cuaron‘s masterpiece, making it the most expensive campaign in nearly a decade. Not since Columbia Pictures dropped an alleged $25 million on the awards campaign for David Fincher’s The Social Network in 2009 have awards body voters been showered with so many perks...

Disney to Make Live-Action ‘Hunchback of Notre Dame’ Musical Possibly Starring Josh Gad

The Hunchback of Notre Dame is the next beloved Disney animated staple to get the live-action treatment. The live-action musical, simply titled Hunchback, will adapt not only 1996 Disney film but the 1831 Victor Hugo novel upon which it was based. And if you’re wondering exactly how they’re going to turn this surprisingly dark Disney animated movie into a family-friendly live-action film, the House of Mouse is reportedly eyeing its favorite comedic bit player, Josh Gad, for the lead.

‘Paddleton’ Trailer: Mark Duplass and Ray Romano Laugh in the Face of Death

In the mid-2000s, Mark Duplass made a name for himself with a low-budget indie called The Puffy Chair and helped introduce the burgeoning “mumblecore” movement to cinephiles. Now, after a decade of near-constant movie appearances and starring on television shows like Togetherness and The League, Duplass is still embracing his low-budget roots by starring in a new movie called Paddleton. The Netflix film stars Duplass and Ray Romano as neighbors who hang out and goof off together after one of th...

In a new interview, Driver says he’s known for a long time “where it was all going,” so read on as we narrow down the possibilities of what he’s talking about.

But she did, and it’s finally making its way to theaters.
