Movie Mixtape: 6 Movies to See After You See ‘Glass’

The first act of The Incredibles is still the fairest portrayal of what superhero home life would look like. The flurry of domestic bliss and panic mirrors a lot of families with young children, but there’s an additional anxious hum to the rhythm of their lives. That fear of being caught, of suppressing who they are for the “greater good” of a fearful, misinformed larger society imbues every choice they make. Yet it’s only one family. One view on what it might be like for a very small group of ...

Lucrecia Martel Turned Down ‘Black Widow’ Because Marvel Said “Don’t Worry About The Action Scenes” — Here’s Why It’s Not Unusual

For Marvel’s highly anticipated Black Widow movie, a solo outing that had been in demand for nearly a decade, the studio wanted to get it right. Over 65 female directors were considered at one point to direct the Scarlett Johansson vehicle, and that was slowly whittled down to a four-person shortlist. Ultimately Berlin Syndrome director Cate Shortland earned the gig, but one other high-profile female director was initially approached for the job of Black Widow director, only to turn it down. Lu...

‘Bodied’ Director Joseph Kahn on Why His Explosive Rap Battle Comedy Was a Tough Sell For Distributors [Interview]

Joseph Kahn is a prolific commercial and music video director, but he has only made three feature films. His first, Torque, was The Fast and the Furious on motorcycles, but he made it a spoof of The Fast and the Furious, and people expecting a straight Fast and the Furious weren’t on board. He made Detention independently, but the teen slasher comedy with time travel was a tough sell for distributors, even as a Josh Hutcherson vehicle. On the surface, Bodied would be Kahn’s most commercial f...
