Bill Murray Open to Appearing in Jason Reitman’s New ‘Ghostbusters’ Sequel

For a long time, Bill Murray didn’t really want anything to do with Ghostbusters 3. However, director Paul Feig was fortunate enough to secure his involvement (along with most of the rest of the original cast) for a cameo in Ghostbusters: Answer the Call. And it sounds like if Jason Reitman wants Bill Murray to appear in the developing Ghostbusters sequel slated for 2020, all he has to do is ask. IndieWire recently talked with Bill Murray following the Cannes premiere of Jim Jarmusch’s zombie...

Watch Six New Short Alien Films: Created to Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Ridley Scott’s Film

Alien came out 40 years ago this month, not that its age shows in the least. The terror of the ever-diminishing crew of the Nostromo trapped on their ship with the merciless extraterrestrial monster of the title remains as visceral as it was in 1979, and the dank, pre-digital confines of its setting have taken on a retro patina that successive generations of filmmakers struggle to recreate for themselves. Now, in a series of brand new short films set in the Alien universe, yo...

Netflix won a big victory in its fight to have its movies continue to be eligible for Oscars

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Board of Governors voted on Tuesday to keep existing eligibility rules for the Oscars, meaning Netflix is safe to compete.

But Spielberg wasn't even at the meeting, and thinks his feelings on Netflix have been mischaracterized, according to The New York Times. "I want people to find their entertainment in any...

Jennifer Lawrence Joins Mysterious New Movie From Distributor A24

Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence has appeared in 19 movies since her breakout role in 2010’s Winter’s Bone, and Dark Phoenix, her 20th film in 9 years, comes out in under two months.

Sinemia faces consumer pushback and a class action suit over a battery of complaints

When Sinemia first came across our radar, the company was happily riding the wave of anti-MoviePass publicity. With its chief competition in the midst of what looked to be a historic collapse, Sinemia happily grabbed headlines as a what looked to be more stable alternative for movie ticket subscriptions. Last July, at the height of MoviePass’ meltdown, we asked Sinemia co-founder and CEO Rifat Oguz how he planned to avoid a similar fate. “By not providing unlimited tickets, but providing t...

Sinemia Showing Signs of the Same Problems That Destroyed MoviePass, But There Might be Hope

MoviePass famously broke the mold when it comes to how moviegoers get their tickets. But they also broke their bank, and now they’re desperate to convince subscribers that they’ve fixed their problems and aren’t back on their bullshit. Now fellow movie ticket subscription service Sinemia might be facing some of the same problems. Sinemia has been facing an onslaught of criticism from users lately due to outages during the opening weekend of Jordan Peele’s Us on March 23 and the days since. Mean...

‘Missing Link’ Early Buzz: LAIKA Delivers a Visual Feast But Only an Appetizer of a Story

LAIKA is back with another stop-motion animated adventure, Missing Link. But unlike their previous films, this is the first time the protagonist of the movie isn’t a kid. Instead, we follow adventurer Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman) as he traverses the world in search of mythical and elusive creatures. So it’s wonderful that he runs into the famous Missing Link (Zach Galifianakis), who is in search of other creatures just like him. The first Missing Link reviews have hit the web, and while it s...

The Justice Department sent a letter to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences warning it against making any rule changes that could hurt Netflix, according to Variety. “In the event that the Academy — an association that includes multiple competitors in its membership — establishes certain eligibility requirements for the Oscars that eliminate competition without procompetitive justification, such conduct may raise antitrust concerns,” the letter said.

How ‘Rogue One’ Changed From Its Original Script, According to Screenwriter Chris Weitz

Plenty of movies get changed on the way from the page to the big screen, but few perhaps as drastically (or infamously) as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The standalone Star Wars film went through dramatic changes in the summer of 2016, which saw significant plot points dropped and whole scenes that appeared in the trailer not show up in the finished film. We don’t know the full extent of the Rogue One changes, but Rogue One co-writer Chris Weitz is here to enlighten us on what the original film...
