The Opening Dance Scene in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Sums Up Why We Love These Movies

(Welcome to Great Moments in MCU History, where we fondly recall great little bits that made us fall in love with the MCU.) Once upon a time, Guardians of the Galaxy was not a beloved corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe featuring characters that would become eventually become Avengers. If you’d told me back in 2014 that both Rocket Raccoon and Nebula would be major players in the fourth Avengers movie, I would have had to look up who Nebula even was. In its sixth year of existenc...

‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Will Feel Like a New ‘Avengers’ Sequel

It looks like Thor: Love and Thunder is going to have such a big cast of Marvel players that it might end up feeling like Avengers 5. The Taika Waititi sequel is of course bringing back key players Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Natalie Portman. But a new report points to a “sprawling cast” that suggests the film might follow in the footsteps of Captain America: Civil War – a movie that features multiple key Marvel characters without being a big Avengers sequel. In a new THR report abo...

‘Hitman’ Filmmaker Xavier Gens Explains Why He Turned Down a Marvel Movie

Marvel Studios has no shortage of directors who would gladly work for them — and vice versa, as there’s no shortage of directors who would quickly turn them down. Directing a Marvel movie might offer a great boost for many filmmakers, but Hitman director Xavier Gens doesn’t want to be one of them. The French director behind genre films like Frontier(s) and Gareth Evans’ currently-airing crime series Gangs of London revealed that he was in discussions with Marvel to direct a project, but turned ...

James Gunn’s ‘The Suicide Squad’ Has Recruited Sylvester Stallone, But Who Is He Playing?

The Suicide Squad completed production back in February, and now director James Gunn is hard at work on post-production to finish the film for release in August 2021.

‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Cast: Chris Pratt to Return as Star-Lord

Chris Pratt, the internet’s current least favorite Chris, is joining the much more beloved Chris Hemsworth in Thor: Love and Thunder. Pratt’s Star-Lord/Peter Quill will appear in the Taika Waititi sequel, which makes sense since Avengers: Endgame concluded with Thor jetting off with the Guardians of the Galaxy. That said, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 doesn’t have an official release date yet, so it’s not exactly clear how all of this lines up on the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline. The ...

Exploring the Many Genres Within the Superhero Genre

Mortal , the new film from Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and The Autopsy of Jane Doe filmmaker André Øvredal, is out now and tells the story of a young man discovering his own set of abnormal powers. You might even call them superpowers. But is it a superhero film?  It’s hard to say. There are obvious superhero films out there – all the Marvel movies, for instance – but the presence of a superpowered person can also be a jumping-off point to explore any genre, something Mortal...

Watch: Superb 'Hammer Down' Western-Trucker Action Short Film

Watch This: Simon Hatt’s ‘Hammer Down’ is the Action-Packed Trucker-Western Father-Daughter Short Film You Need Right Now

I love short films. They are a storytelling form that allows for interesting twists and turns on the familiar, giving filmmakers a place to hone their craft. Short films are where I first discovered filmmakers like Jason Reitman before they started making features. As the owner of a film website, I get sent a lot of short films and I’ll be quite honest: most of them are bad. But today, I want to bring your attention to a great new short directed by (full disclosure) my friend Simon Hatt. You mi...
