‘Game of Thrones’ Delivers One of Its All-Time-Best Episodes With “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms”

Join them below. A Game of Thrones Bottle Episode Jacob: ...

‘Game of Thrones’ Returns to ‘Winterfell’ With a Busy Hour of Table-setting and Doomsaying

Game of Thrones is back with its eighth and final season…which means that a series known for its unwillingness to take any prisoners no longer has a reason to let the castles stand and keep heads on their shoulders. The season premiere, “Winterfell,” follows the grand series tradition of moving pieces into place before the proper storm begins. And there are many, many pieces, even as the game table itself has shrunk to only two key locations: Winterfell, stronghold of House Stark, and King’s La...

Even though some moviegoers are anxious to see their favorite Avengers get back in action on the big screen this summer, others are only concerned with one, and his name is John Wick.

‘Rocketman’ Footage Reaction: The Fantastical Musical Biopic That Elton John Deserves [CinemaCon 2019]

Following the success of Bohemian Rhapsody last year (and during awards season), Paramount Pictures is looking to have a hit themselves by telling the life story of one of rock’s biggest stars: Elton John. Rocketman stars Kingsman: The Secret Service star Taron Egerton as the legendary singer of songs like “Tiny Dancer,” “Crocodile Rock,” and of course “Rocketman.” The film follows his trajectory from a young kid being classically trained in piano to one of the most flamboyant, glamorous and en...

‘Gemini Man’ Footage Reaction: Will Smith Gets De-Aged in the Ang Lee Thriller [CinemaCon 2019]

Gemini Man is a sci-fi movie that has spent decades in development, attracting the likes of Mel Gibson and Clint Eastwood to the role of an over-the-hill hitman who finds himself targeted by a younger clone of himself. But it wasn’t until now, when de-aging technology has become the hottest new commodity in blockbusters, that Gemini Man could finally become a reality. Now set to star Will Smith and be directed by Ang Lee, Gemini Man will finally hit theaters more than two decades after the film...

We Saw New ‘The Lion King’ Footage – But Did It Make Us Roar? [CinemaCon 2019]

Other than a teaser that recreated the iconic opening scene of the original animated classic, audiences have seen very little of Disney’s new The Lion King remake. Don’t call it “live-action” – it’s technically a “photorealistic computer animated movie”, with director Jon Favreau employing new technology to create realistic animal characters. /Film’s Peter Sciretta and Ben Pearson were able to watch some new footage of the film at CinemaCon and here’s what they saw.

‘Cats’ Will Bring the Musical to Life With Motion-Capture Performances and Oversized Sets [CinemaCon 2019]

Featuring spandex-wearing anthropomorphic cats and a barebones plot, Cats is possibly one of the strangest Broadway musicals to hit the Great White Way. And now it’s about to become one of the most baffling feature film musicals. Directed by Tom Hooper in his second movie musical following Les Miserables, Cats has an unfairly stacked cast including Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, Idris Elba, and Judi Dench. While the prospect of seeing Judi Dench in spandex is tempting, with Hooper’s moodily rea...

‘Doctor Sleep’ Footage Offers an Early Look at the Sequel to ‘The Shining’ [CinemaCon 2019]

Doctor Sleep is an odd book, but it could be an even odder movie. Stephen King‘s sequel to The Shining catches up with a grown-up Danny Torrance decades later as he finds himself embroiled in a battle with psychic vampires. It’s not what you’d expect and it leans heavily on the original Shining novel, which is very different from Stanley Kubrick’s iconic film adaptation. So what is director Mike Flanagan (The Haunting of Hill House) going to do with this material? /Film’s Peter Sciretta and Ben...
