Alphabet takes the wind out of its Makani energy kites

Google today announced that it is calling it quits on its efforts to build and monetize its Makani wind energy kites. Manaki, which was founded in 2006, came into Google/Alphabet seven years ago as a Google X project. Last year, the company spun it out of X and made it a stand-alone Alphabet unit. Now, Makani’s time at Alphabet as an “Other Bet” is at an end. The company is still hoping to work with Shell, one of its earliest partners, to see how the technology can be used in another way, tho...

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Review: An Exhausting Video Game Adaptation With an Identity Crisis

Who is Sonic the Hedgehog for? What is the target audience for a film that wants to take its cues from Deadpool but also family films about the Easter Bunny? Ostensibly, children should want very badly to see this movie adaptation of the long-running Sega video game about an extremely fast blue animal. But Sonic the Hedgehog can’t figure out if its audience is the parents of those children — those of us who grew up with the first iteration of Sonic — or kids themselves. The result is...

‘Clue’ Remake with Ryan Reynolds Now in the Hands of ‘The Muppets’ Director James Bobin

It’s been two years since we heard Ryan Reynolds was producing a new adaptation of the classic murder mystery board game Clue from Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Since then, Jason Bateman boarded the project as director, but unfortunately, his commitment to the Netflix series Ozark will keep him from following through. Now the project set up at the newly branded 20th Century Studios has brought on a new filmmaker from Disney’s neck of the woods: The Muppets director James Bobin....

'Birds of Prey' disappoints at the box office, bringing in only $33.2 million its opening weekend

Warner Bros.' "Birds of Prey" won the domestic box office, but with a soft $33.2 million. The studio projected a $45 million opening (about half of its production budget), while industry projections were around $50 million to $55 million. It's a disappointing opening for the DC Comics movie, which has a fresh Rotten Tomatoes score of 81%. Its R rating may have kept away teen girls who love the movie's lead, Harley Quinn.

Will ‘Birds of Prey’ Be Another Box Office Hit for DC?

February was once considered a box office dead zone. Conventional wisdom mandated that studios release all their tentpoles during the summer or around the holidays to sell tickets. But commercial hits like 2015’s “Fifty Shades of Grey,” 2016’s “Deadpool” and 2018’s “Black Panther” helped buck that notion over the years and encouraged studios to take […]

Original Content podcast: Netflix’s ‘6 Underground’ is very fun and very dumb

Netflix’s “6 Underground” feels like a movie that belongs on the big screen. Sure, it isn’t part of a giant franchise (yet), and it doesn’t feature any well-known superheroes — but it does star “Deadpool”‘s Ryan Reynolds as a wise-cracking hero who criss-crosses the globe, going from one spectacularly destructive set piece to another. And behind the camera, you’ve got Michael Bay (who made “Bad Boys” and countless “Transformers” movies) coordinating the action. On the latest episode of the Or...

But now the R-rated, fourth wall-breaking Merc with a Mouth has a new home thanks to the purchase of 20th Century Fox by The Walt Disney Company.
