Prolific Lucasfilm Historian and Film Writer J.W. Rinzler Dead at 58

Prolific film historian, film writer, and author Jonathan Rinzler, better known by his pen name J.W. Rinzler, died July 28 at his home in Northern California after an 11-month long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 58 years old. Rinzler’s behind-the-scenes coverage of some of cinema’s biggest productions provided an honest glimpse into the magic of moviemaking, and both he and his work will be sorely missed. After joining Lucasfilm in 2001, Rinzler became the executive editor of its publ...

Dev Patel Won’t Star in Franchise Blockbusters After the Disastrous ‘The Last Airbender’

We still maintain there’s a lot to love when it comes to M. Night Shyamalan movies, but the monumental misfire known as The Last Airbender film is not exactly one of them. But at least for fans of the beloved animated series, the grueling experience they associate with that film began and ended in the span of its runtime. For actor Dev Patel, the effects have lingered quite a bit longer than that. In a lengthy profile with The New York Times (via Indie Wire), the star of the upcoming The Gre...

Ain’t Them Bodies (Decapitated) Saints: Director David Lowery on a Scene From ‘The Green Knight’

The New York Times has posted an “Anatomy of a Scene” video in which Lowery walks you through a full five-minute scene from The Green Knig...

‘Black Widow’ Scene Breakdown: Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh Walk Us Through a Fight Sequence

Marvel has had a history of taking promising filmmakers who may have previously flown under the radar, and putting them in a position to succeed on a national level. Some accuse the studio of sanding down all their unique edges to fit these talents into the ongoing franchise machine and, personally, I can see where they’re coming from. But sometimes it’s nice to be reminded that there is still plenty of craft and intention put into individual moments in these MCU movies, and that’s just what th...

James Gunn Explains the Major Differences Between Making Marvel and DC Films, ‘Guardians 3’ May Be His Last With Marvel

Director James Gunn has been on an emotional rollercoaster in the past few years. First, he had incredible success with the first two Guardians of the Galaxy movies for Marvel. Then, in the summer of 2018, controversial old tweets of Gunn’s surfaced, and he was fired by the company as a result. He publicly apologized and the cast of Guardians rallied around him. In the meantime, he was able to secure another major gig: writing and directing DC’s The Suicide Squad. After all that, Marvel wound ...

Warner Bros. Really Wanted James Gunn to Make a Superman Movie Before He Chose ‘The Suicide Squad’

James Gunn has made the leap from Marvel to DC with the upcoming The Suicide Squad, but we could’ve gotten a completely different DC movie from him if things had worked out differently. In a recent interview, Gunn confirmed that after he was fired by Disney and Marvel over offensive past tweets, Warner Bros. approached him and asked if he’d be interested in directing a new Superman movie. Gunn turned the offer down and eventually decided on The Suicide Squad instead. And based on Gunn’s sensibi...
