/Film’s 25 Most Anticipated Movies of 2019

We are at the start of a new year and you know what that means: a whole new year of movies to anticipate. The /Film crew recently sat down, put our heads together, and compiled a list of our top 25 most anticipated movies of 2019. You can see the fruits of our labor below. And before you ask “But wait, why isn’t this movie on the list?”, please note that we recorded our deliberations as we formed this list as a podcast. So the answer you’re looking for is probably in that audio. Note: severa...

/Film’s Overall Top 15 Movies of 2018

Every January, the writers at /Film look back at the previous year and compile a best-of list, a ranking of the greatest movies they saw over the past 12 months. And every year, I then take those lists and create a group ranking that represents the entire site, a top 15 list that stands for all of our voices and tastes. The result is always a refreshing reminder that, hey, movies are diverse and they are good. These are the 15 best movies of 2018 according to /Film. First, a quick note on ho...

Peter Sciretta’s Top 15 Movies of 2018

2018 has come to a close and I have finally been willing to commit to a list of this year’s best movies. Unlike the rest of the /Film staff, I decided to post a top 15 instead of a top 10, and I’ll explain why. I don’t think this was a great year for movies, but it was a very good one. Many of the films in this list are on nearly equal footing. I recently went back and rated and ranked films through the last decade and a half, and that gives me some perspective. If you were to look at my rating...

Jacob Hall’s Top 10 Movies of 2018

2018 belongs on some kind of watch list for crimes against our international sanity, but you know what? At least the movies were good! The fact that Never Goin’ Back, First Man, The Night Comes For Us, The House That Jack Built, and Bodied have to live in my honorable mentions in this introductory paragraph and not in the top 10 itself says a lot. Because I love those movies. And I love a ton of movies that didn’t even make that shortlist. Movies! They’re good! So here are my selections for the...

‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ Release Planned for March 2019 as Film Finds New Distributor

Terry Gilliam‘s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote might finally see the light of day in North America – for real this time. Gilliam’s film went through years of turmoil before he was able to finish it – and even then, the problems still weren’t over. Amazon was set to distribute the flick, but pulled out at the last minute, leaving Don Quixote‘s U.S. release in limbo. Now, Screen Media has acquired the North American rights, with plans to release the film in 2019. What a journey it has been for...

Watch the First Five Minutes of George R.R. Martin’s ‘Nightflyers’ Series

Alien first popularized the tagline “In space, no one can hear you scream,” but the upcoming Syfy series Nightflyers takes that mantra to heart within the first 5 minutes of the first episode. The network has released the Nightflyers opening scene that made shockwaves when it was teased at this summer’s San Diego Comic-Con. The brutal opening scene sets the tone for the horror-sci-fi series based on the novella of the same name by writer George R.R. Martin. Nightflyers Opening Scene Whe...

‘Mortal Engines’ Featurette Promises Something You’ve Never Seen Before

“How often do we go to the movies today and see things that we’ve genuinely never seen before?” Producer and co-writer Peter Jackson wants to give audiences a fresh new spectacle with Mortal Engines, Universal’s film adaptation of Philip Reeve’s popular young adult novel. And Jackson is actually delivering on that promise, showing us a post-apocalyptic world in which cities roam across a barren wasteland and eat other cities. These rolling monstrosities – and who’s running them, how they’re org...

‘Mary Poppins Returns’ Sneak Peek: Hear Lin-Manuel Miranda Sing

For general audiences, the fact that Mary Poppins Returns exists at all will be reason enough to see it. A slightly smaller subset of fans will want to see it because it stars Emily Blunt (A Quiet Place) taking over the iconic title role. But an even smaller crowd – the people who saw and loved the Broadway musical Hamilton and have listened to its soundtrack countless times – will line up to see Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda in a supporting role as a singing, dancing lamplighter named Jack.
