Cinemark Signs Deals With 5 Major Hollywood Studios for Shorter Theatrical Windows

Theaters aren’t dying — though it looks like they’ll be showing major studio releases for an even shorter time than before. Six months after Cinemark struck a deal with Universal Filmed Entertainment Group — which itself came a few months after Universal’s own deal with AMC Theatres — the exhibition chain has signed new pacts with five major Hollywood studios that could help shorten the theatrical window. Variety reports that Cinemark, the third most popular movie theater chain in the United...

New ‘Muppets Haunted Mansion’ Halloween Special is Coming to Disney+ This Fall

It’s never too early to start preparing for Halloween. That’s why Disney+ is getting the word out about a new Muppets Haunted Mansion special coming to Disney+ this fall, just in time for the spooky season. The streaming service just released the first promo for the new Muppets special with Gonzo and Pepe the King Prawn making the announcement, but one of them isn’t quite able to muster up the same kind of energy to hype up the show. Muppets Haunted Mansion Special The Muppets Haunted M...

‘Cruella’ Featurette: Hey, at Least Emma Stone Looks Like She’s Having Fun Here

Here’s yet another look at Cruella that makes the movie look…questionable, at best. Emma Stone plays the 101 Dalmations villain in her youth, before she decided to start murdering puppies for fashion. This new Cruella featurette has star Stone talking about how fun it is to play such a wicked character, and I have no doubt that she’s correct. Still, how do you make a sympathetic origin story for someone who kills puppies? Beats me! Ask Mr. Walt Disney, and watch the featurette below. Cruell...

New ‘Cruella’ Teaser Reveals the Origin Story of the ‘101 Dalmatians’ Villain

How did Cruella de Vil begin? The question no one was asking will soon be answered in Cruella, the punk-rock take on the 101 Dalmatians villain starring Emma Stone. And at least one part of that answer is revealed in a new Cruella teaser that previews her origins: she was a kid with really bad hair. Watch the Cruella teaser below. Cruella Teaser: Origins It’s actually really funny that Cruella presents itself as a serious, grounded (well as grounded as you can get when you have a charac...

‘Indiana Jones 5’: Mads Mikkelsen Talks About Helping Create His Character, Says the Script is “Everything I Wished It to Be”

As is often the case on huge Hollywood blockbuster movies, Indiana Jones 5 has gone through multiple writers on its way toward production. Considering the disappointment of 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the quality of this new movie’s script has been a big talking point among film fans – but now one person involved with the movie is talking up the script in a big way. Mads Mikkelsen, who was announced as part of the movie’s cast a few weeks ago, says in a new interv...

‘The Falcon and The Winter Soldier’ Honest Trailer: Where the Morals Are as Gray as the Visuals

Marvel Studios continues the recent efforts to make you care about second tier members of The Avengers by giving them their own show on Disney+. Much like WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier gives us two superheroes for the price of one. But thankfully, the series makes them more than bargain bin superheroes, even if the Honest Trailer doesn’t mince words about their forced banter, staring contests, and incessant talk about Captain America’s shield. The Falcon and The Winter Soldi...

‘Cruella’ Clip: Emma Stone Crashes Emma Thompson’s Party

We’re one day closer to Cruella, the movie that seems to ask, “What if we remade Joker, but with Emma Stone playing a Disney villain?” The film is set to tell us the origin story of Cruella de Vil, a lunatic who wants to murder dogs, and I continue to wonder just who this movie is for, exactly. In any case, there’s a new Cruella clip, featuring Emma Stone using a questionable accent as she crashes a party thrown by Emma Thompson. It’s a battle of the Emmas! Watch the Cruella clip below.

7 Things We Learned About ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ From Marvel’s ‘Assembled’ Documentary

Now that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has come to a close, Marvel Studios is digging into the making of the show with another installment of their documentary series Assembled. This hour-long glimpse into the production of the series features plenty of interviews with director Kari Skogland, head writer Malcolm Spellman, stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, and more. Since The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is a little more straightforward Marvel series than WandaVision, the making of t...

‘The Mighty Ducks’ Franchise Writer Steven Brill Talks the Future of ‘Game Changers’, Reunion Challenges, and…a Broadway Musical? [Interview]

The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers digs back into the nostalgia of the original franchise in the biggest way yet with today’s new episode, titled “Spirit of the Ducks.” When a gala is planned to celebrate the legacy of the peewee hockey team, some of the original teammates get back together with Coach Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez). But the reunion isn’t quite as chipper as you might expect, and that’s exactly how franchise writer Steven Brill likes it. For the Mighty Ducks reunion episode of Game...

Today sees a special reunion of some of the original hockey playing brats from The Mighty Ducks in an episode of the Disney+ original series The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers. And if all goes well, this won’t be the last reunion we’ll see on the show. Even though six of the original members of the Mighty Ducks franchise were able to reunite for the episode, titled “Spirit of the Ducks,” the coronavirus pandemic made it more difficult to get other teammates back. Thankfully, franchise writer and s...

‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ Head Writer Malcolm Spellman on Prescient Storytelling, Redemption, MCU Planning & More [Interview]

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has come to an end, at least for now. We’re not sure if the series will continue under the moniker of Captain America and the Winter Soldier as the finale teased so cheekily, or if we should just buckle down and wait for Captain America 4. Either way, it’s clear that the stories of Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes are far from over. Since the show’s head writer Malcolm Spellman (who is also co-writing the next Captain America movie) can’t talk about those kinds of t...

Pixar Staff Frustrated By Decisions to Send ‘Soul’ and ‘Luca’ Directly to Disney+

Luca is the second Pixar film in less than a year to debut exclusively on Disney+. When Soul sidestepped movie theaters to debut exclusively on Disney+ in December, many Pixar employees believed it was a one-time decision brought on by coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, which shuttered theaters throughout 2020. But as the vaccine rollout has steadily expanded and theaters have begun to open back up, Pixar staffers are voicing their frustrations with Disney’s decision to apparently send only Pixar...

A Future ‘Star Wars’ Animated Project Will Bring Back Matt Lanter as Anakin Skywalker

Star Wars: The Clone Wars may be over, but that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of the animated version of Anakin Skywalker, even if he’s already transformed into Darth Vader. Matt Lanter, who voiced Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Jedi apprentice turned Sith Lord throughout the Star Wars animated series, has just teased a surprising return as Anakin Skywalker in some kind of upcoming Lucasfilm Animation project that’s currently in the works. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Matt Lanter dropped the bomb...

The Sea Monster to Human Transformation in ‘Luca’ is Partially Based on Mystique in the ‘X-Men’ Movies

In The Little Mermaid, Ariel is able to transform into a human through a deal with a sea witch, in which she gives up her voice for legs. But in Pixar’s Luca, though it’s been compared to a riff on the Disney animated classic, there’s no such deal with the devil. The sea monsters of the upcoming Pixar coming-of-age film simply get out of the water and dry off, and they’re human. It’s a discovery that the titular protagonist of Luca (Jacob Tremblay) discovers, leading him on an adventure with hi...

With ‘Luca,’ Pixar is Moving Away From Realism and Toward “the Hand of the Artist”

The team behind Luca were facing a unique challenge: water. It wasn’t a matter of making the water in the upcoming Pixar film look realistic and detailed — Pixar animators could probably create photorealistic water in their sleep. It was a matter of making it less realistic. It’s a strange problem for Pixar to have, right? The animation studio had perfected 3D animation to such a degree that their films have started to look almost too realistic. But it’s a problem Luca director Enrico Casarosa ...

How Pixar’s ‘Luca’ Took Inspiration From Studio Ghibli and Aardman to Create a “Handcrafted Feel” [Interview]

Luca is probably the closest Pixar will get to making a Studio Ghibli film. That’s probably not a huge swing to make — the creatives at Pixar have long been fans of the works of Hayao Miyazaki and the anime studio that he co-founded, frequently citing films like Kiki’s Delivery Service and Spirited Away as influences for their own award-winning films. But there’s a certain feeling with Ghibli films that is hard to express. A nostalgia, a serenity of spirit, a bittersweet simplicity that has bee...

Ewan McGregor Says ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Series Will “Feel So Much More Real” Than the Prequels

Shooting on Lucasfilm’s upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series for Disney+has yet to begin, but the Jedi Master himself is ready. Ewan McGregor first played young version of the iconic character in George Lucas’ Star Wars prequels, and he was seen as one of the elements that worked in a series of films that didn’t exactly measure up to their predecessors. As he waits for production to begin, an extensive profile on the actor’s career finds him acknowledging how difficult it was to realize that the preq...

But now that we’ve seen how the limited series came to an end, it’s time to see How WandaVision Should Have Ended, and it should come as no surprise that all the confusion and classic television madness could have been stopped a lot sooner. Like, we could have been done with this situation in the first episode. How Wan...
