‘News of the World’ Trailer: Tom Hanks is the Captain Now in Paul Greengrass’s Western

Look at him. Look at him. Tom Hanks is the captain now in News of the World, a western which reunites him with his Captain Phillips director Paul Greengrass. Hanks plays Captain Jefferson Kidd (I told you he was the captain!), a man who travels across the plains reading the news to small-town folk who otherwise would never hear it. This is the actor’s first western, and it looks like the kind of old-school throwback that doesn’t come around too often in the modern Hollywood landscape. Check out...

‘Dexter’ Revival Will Act as a “Second Finale” to Right the Original Ending’s Wrongs

Last week, Showtime dropped the bomb that Dexter would be returning as a limited series revival from original showrunner Clyde Phillips, with star Michael C. Hall set to don the splatter-proof vinyl apron again. It’s been seven years since Dexter went off the air, and seven years since most fans had purged the show from their brains after a particularly divisive finale. Which raised the question: who actually wanted a Dexter finale? Phillips did, specifically to “make right” by the much-maligne...

Even if it’s been many years since you’ve seen Requiem for a Dream, director Darren Aronofsky‘s gut-punch of a movie, you can probably hear the film’s most famous piece of music in your head if you read the words “Lux Aeterna.” That catchy, eerie song comes courtesy of composer Clint Mansell, and since Requiem for a Dream is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the Kronos Quartet has reconvened (in a socially-distanced setting, thanks to the pandemic) to bring that haunting tune back int...

Clint Mansell on Composing the ‘Rebecca’ Score in the Shadow of Hitchcock, Incorporating “The Devil’s Instrument,” and More [Interview]

For more than twenty years, Clint Mansell has created beautiful and artistically daring scores for a wide variety of films. His work on Darren Aronofsky’s Requiem for a Dream remains one of the most haunting scores of this millennium, and his other credits – from Moon to Stoker to The Fountain and Black Swan – represent a depth and sophistication that’s rare in an era in which many scores are little more than background noise.

‘His Dark Materials’ Season 2 Trailer Should Satiate Your Thirst for Big Budget Fantasy

HBO has released the full trailer for His Dark Materials season 2, and it’s making me regret not carving out enough time to watch the first season when it was airing.

Check out the latest trailer below. His Dark Materials Season 2 Trailer This season adapts the second bo...

Why horror keeps creeping into black drama - video

Shows such as I May Destroy You, Atlanta and Insecure depict a wide spectrum of black life, from hilarity to mundanity – but all these shows, at times, also have an impending sense of doom. This feeling of horror, this looming sense of dread, is intentional, but it plays on the common tropes we've been conditioned to expect. Josh Toussaint-Strauss discusses why audiences expect bad things to happen to black characters and explores how a new generation of black creators are using horror to subver...
