‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone’ Early Cut Was Nearly As Long as ‘Fellowship of the Ring’

The Harry Potter book series took the world by storm and the story of The Boy Who Lived was a phenomenon by the late 1990s. Of course, that meant the books were destined to be adapted for the big screen, and director Chris Columbus was the one who was tapped to take a crack at it for Warner Bros. Pictures. The pressure was on for the Home Alone director to deliver the fantastical world that fans have been imagining in their heads for years. That’s why an early cut of the movie screened for audi...

“Theft” Brings Some Shock and Awe to ‘His Dark Materials’ With the Help of Paddington Bear

His Dark Materials is only getting better with each episode of its second season, with the third episode, “Theft,” finally bringing an end to the sluggish witches vs. Magisterium plot and getting to the real action. And by real action, I mean Will and Lyra sitting down in a movie theater to watch Paddington. No, I don’t really mean that. But that scene is a pivotal example of how His Dark Materials is letting loose its dour, epic fantasy trappings to embrace some of the awe and whimsy that was ...

They Let Roberto Benigni Make Another ‘Pinocchio’ Movie, and the English-Language Version is Opening this Christmas

Roberto Benigni became an international star after he won an Academy Award for Best Actor for his work in Life is Beautiful, a film Benigni also directed and co-wrote. But Benigni’s star plummeted a bit in the years to come, worsened by his directorial follow-up, 2002’s Pinocchio. The live-action take on the classic tale was critically panned, most notably for the fact that the middle-aged Benigni cast himself as the puppet boy. You might think that experience would keep Benigni away from all-t...

‘His Dark Materials’ Enters a Brave New World With “The City of Magpies”

His Dark Materials is going through some growing pains. The first season couldn’t quite meet its own Game of Thrones-sized ambitions, which hobbled the show before it could really find its footing. Was it a dark, serious epic fantasy? Or the whimsical YA adventure that Philip Pullman‘s novels first presented as? His Dark Materials ended up falling somewhere in the middle, and while the first season was a far more respectful adaptation than the disastrous 2007 film The Golden Compass, it was a t...
