‘Berlin, I Love You’ Trailer: Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren Star in Fourth ‘Cities’ Anthology Film

Jesse Eisenberg and a very bald Alexander Skarsgård star in The Hummingbird Project, a thriller about…fiber-optic cable?

‘The Punisher’ Showrunner Already Has An Idea For Season 3 [Interview]

The return of Marvel’s The Punisher comes at a precarious time for Marvel shows on Netflix. Along with Luke Cage and Iron Fist, Daredevil was recently cancelled after its third season, leading m any to wonder why Netflix is dropping them. It still remains unknown if these shows will continue on Disney+, but the Jon Bernthal-led series The Punisher is back with a second season on Netflix right now. Showrunner Steve Lightfoot spoke with /Film by phone about the new season earlier this w...

Netflix Reveals Users’ ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ Choices and Teases More Interactive Entertainment

Netflix is notoriously stingy when it comes to releasing any information about its user base and their viewing habits – except, of course, when that data makes the company look good or its social media managers are allowed to have a bit of fun with its audience. Now the company has pulled back the veil of secrecy and offered a brief peek at some of the Black Mirror: Bandersnatch choices users made when watching the interactive movie. Read on to discover the numbers and a quote from chief conten...

Bill Gunn's 'Personal Problems' and a History of the Video Revolution

None The '60s and '70s signal watershed decades for the growth of alternative media in the West. The emergence of offset printing during the '60s allowed hundreds, if not thousands, of publications to bloom since it only required a typewriter, some glue, a few volunteers, and a vision. Pirate radio stations also proliferated across the United States, Europe, and Latin America during this time. Perhaps nothing captured the excitement and utopian possibilities of the youth revolt like the video ...

Apple Signs Deal With ‘Friday Night Lights’ Producer Jason Katims, Courts ‘X-Men’ Producer Simon Kinberg for New Sci-Fi Show

Apple is continuing to poach talent from all across Hollywood for their nascent film and television division, and they may have just added two names to their ever-growing list of collaborators. The tech company is “near a deal” for a new science fiction series that hails from Simon Kinberg, the writer/producer who’s been shepherding the X-Men film franchise for years. Plus, they’ve managed to lure Jason Katims, the producer of beloved TV shows like Friday Night Lights, away from his longtime ho...

Choice: An Interview with 'Monsters and Men' Director Reinaldo Marcus Green

None Reinaldo Marcus Green's Monsters and Men (2018) is a triptych narrative centred around the police shooting of Darius Larson (Samuel Edwards), which Manny (Anthony Ramos) witnesses and captures on his phone. Creating a ripple-effect, African-American police officer Dennis (John David Washington) wrestles with his conscience over whether to stand up to detectives involved in the shooting, while talented local high school baseball prospect Zyrick (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) risks his future as he j...

Critically-Acclaimed ‘The Kominsky Method’ Gets Season 2 Renewal at Netflix

If you’ve been paying attention to the awards circuit over the past few months, you’ve probably noticed that one Netflix show keeps popping up again and again: The Kominsky Method, which stars Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin. The series hails from creator Chuck Lorre, the guy behind Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory, so naturally I ignored it when it premiered late last year. But the show has been slowly racking up awards and appearing on “best of” lists, and now Netflix has officially ...

‘Five Feet Apart’ Trailer: It’s ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ But with Cystic Fibrosis

If The Fault in Our Stars warmed your heart and also made you stream crocodile tears, then you’re probably already looking forward to Five Feet Apart. Not unlike the aforementioned adaptation of John Green’s book, this movie follows a 17-year old girl named Stella (Haley Lu Richardson of Split) who is afflicted with cystic fibrosis, keeping her confined to a hospital and unable to make human contact. That becomes all the more challening when she meets a fellow cystic fibrosis patient named Will...

‘High Flying Bird’ Trailer: Steven Soderbergh Tries to Take Down the NBA in New Netflix Movie

Director Steven Soderbergh was “retired” once, but those days are long in the past. Now, he has a new working relationship at Netflix that is kicking off with his latest film, a sports drama that threatens to break the system that is professional basketball. High Flying Bird follows sports agent Ray Burke (André Holland) as he sets out on some kind of bold plan to take down the NBA as we know it and put control of the game back in the hands of those who play it. Watch the High Flying Bird trail...

Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari Embraces A Cute Raccoon Girl

Contrary to the beliefs of the show’s “critics”, Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari‘s raccoon girl slave has had her innocence protected and purity preserved, with the anime’s 2nd episode naturally focusing entirely on the sweet animal girl and the protagonist’s breeding of her into an adorable little killer.

John Boyega Teases “Visually Crazy” Moment in ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’

John Boyega has witnessed some pretty wild things on Star Wars movie sets: the Poe Dameron-led X-wing rescue on Takodana, Han Solo’s death, and Luke Skywalker’s incredible reveal at the end of The Last Jedi. But all of that apparently pales in comparison to the “visually crazy” moment Boyega is teasing in J.J. Abrams‘ upcoming Star Wars: Episode 9.

Drew Struzan’s ‘Blade Runner’ Poster Will Be On Sale This Week

Drew Struzan is arguably one of the most influential pop artists of all time, responsible for creating the iconic movie posters for films like the Star Wars saga, the Back to the Future trilogy, the Indiana Jones saga, The Thing, and many more. He also created a poster for Ridley Scott‘s 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner, and since we’re now living in 2019 – the year Blade Runner takes place – it seems appropriate that Struzan’s poster would be back in the spotlight.

Netflix’s Midwestern Gothic ‘The Devil All The Time’ Has a Ridiculously Star-Studded Cast

It’s no exaggeration to call the cast of The Devil All the Time the “Avengers of casts” because, well, it’s got two Avengers and it’s just plain impressive. Netflix’s newest original film is a gothic drama directed by Antonio Campos (The Sinner, Christine) that boasts a ridiculously good cast including Tom Holland, Chris Evans, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, and Bill Skarsgard.

Netflix’s Oscar Campaign for ‘Roma’ Could Be the Most Expensive in a Decade

Netflix is going for the gold statuette by dropping the equivalent of half a metric ton of gold on its Roma Oscar campaign. The streaming giant is reportedly spending upwards of $20 million on wooing awards body voters for Alfonso Cuaron‘s masterpiece, making it the most expensive campaign in nearly a decade. Not since Columbia Pictures dropped an alleged $25 million on the awards campaign for David Fincher’s The Social Network in 2009 have awards body voters been showered with so many perks...

Disney to Make Live-Action ‘Hunchback of Notre Dame’ Musical Possibly Starring Josh Gad

The Hunchback of Notre Dame is the next beloved Disney animated staple to get the live-action treatment. The live-action musical, simply titled Hunchback, will adapt not only 1996 Disney film but the 1831 Victor Hugo novel upon which it was based. And if you’re wondering exactly how they’re going to turn this surprisingly dark Disney animated movie into a family-friendly live-action film, the House of Mouse is reportedly eyeing its favorite comedic bit player, Josh Gad, for the lead.

‘Paddleton’ Trailer: Mark Duplass and Ray Romano Laugh in the Face of Death

In the mid-2000s, Mark Duplass made a name for himself with a low-budget indie called The Puffy Chair and helped introduce the burgeoning “mumblecore” movement to cinephiles. Now, after a decade of near-constant movie appearances and starring on television shows like Togetherness and The League, Duplass is still embracing his low-budget roots by starring in a new movie called Paddleton. The Netflix film stars Duplass and Ray Romano as neighbors who hang out and goof off together after one of th...

Adam Driver Was Told Where ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’ Would End Up Before Filming ‘The Force Awakens’

In a new interview, Driver says he’s known for a long time “where it was all going,” so read on as we narrow down the possibilities of what he’s talking about. Speaking with Deadline, Driver compared the experience of working on the HBO series Girls to working on the Star Wars movies, dropping one particularly interesting bit of infor...

‘Little Woods’ Trailer: Tessa Thompson and Lily James Are Sisters Caught in a Bad-to-Worse Situation

When rising filmmaker Nia DaCosta was announced as the director of the buzzy Jordan Peele-produced Candyman reboot, it might have been odd to some that she didn’t have one feature film under her belt. But she did, and it’s finally making its way to theaters.

‘Stan and Ollie’ Star Steve Coogan on Bringing the Iconic Comedy Duo to Life [Interview]

There are few things more satisfying than having modern-day actors pay worthy tribute to their legendary predecessors, and the easily lovable biopic Stan & Ollie, from director Jon S. Baird, is almost nothing but that, with Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly (along with some awards-worthy makeup) portraying arguably the greatest comedy duo in film history, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. The movie documents a period in the later years of their career, during which the two are having less success...

Guillermo del Toro Shares Profound Observations on ‘Roma’ and Its Cyclical Storytelling

Guillermo del Toro and Alfonso Cuaron have been famously close-knit friends for decades, but that doesn’t mean that del Toro is going to offer only shallow praise to Cuaron’s magnum opus Roma. Del Toro took to Twitter on Sunday to offer some insightful film criticism that perfectly gets to the heart of why Roma is such a masterclass in storytelling — and makes all film writers jealous that they hadn’t written a full essay about this first. Spoilers for Roma below. If you aren’t following Gui...

‘Perry Mason’ TV Series Casts ‘The Americans’ Star Matthew Rhys, Who Replaces Robert Downey Jr.

Step aside, Robert Downey Jr. – there’s a new Perry Mason in town, and it’s The Americans star Matthew Rhys. Downey was all set to play the fictional defense attorney in a movie several years ago, but that project morphed into a limited series at HBO. Now the show is finally going to happen, but since Downey’s film commitments have gotten in the way, Rhys is taking over in the lead role.

Disclosure, Dasein, and the Divine in Terrence Malick's 'The Tree of Life'

None The tree of life is a common metaphor for the interconnectedness of all beings. While this metaphor is a familiar framework for ecological thinking—all regions, systems, and species are interwoven and inseparable—the tree of life is also a provocative paradigm for thinking about creativity. The Tree of Life is also both the name of Terrence Malick's 2011 masterpiece and an apt descriptor for his creative process, as evident by The Criterion Collection's 2018 release. The Criterion's rel...
