Learn Secrets from the Special Effects Wizards Behind 2019’s Biggest Movies

Learn Secrets from the Special Effects Wizards Behind 2019’s Biggest Movies 2019 was a year when visual effects took on an entirely new dimension, thanks to the photorealistic accomplishments that went beyond “lifelike” to something approaching dark sorcery. This was the year where lions that looked like they came out of a National Geographic documentary sang, actors who had been dead for years gave fully realized performances, and a platoon of superheroes converged to fight the ultimate evil...

No, Marvel Studios is Not Debuting Its First Transgender Character “Very Soon”

Marvel is taking things one step at a time when it comes to LGBTQ representation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And in one case, that means taking a step back after a misstatement by Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige. A day after Feige appeared to confirm that the MCU would be introducing its first transgender character, Marvel Studios is walking back that statement. There are no current plans to bring a transgender character to the MCU, Variety reports, debunking a recent statement by Fei...

The Filmmakers Who Defined the Decade in Cinema

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) I moved to Hollywood ten years ago and have seen from the ground level how the industry has changed, in both tumultuous bursts (the decimation of the mid-budget film, the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements) and more gradual changes (the rise of streaming, the utter domination of Disney). But as tempting as it can be to refer to the film industry in monolithic terms, the truth is that it isn’t a monolith: it’s a collection of individual people,...

The Russo Brothers Want to Release Their Directorial Debut ‘Pieces’ One Day

The Russo Brothers’ latest film, a little cultural phenomenon called Avengers: Endgame, is the highest-grossing movie of all time.

Besides a premiere at the Slamdance Film School, the indi...

’21 Bridges’ Producers the Russo Brothers Want to Keep Challenging Themselves in a Post-‘Avengers: Endgame’ World [Interview]

When talking about a mid-sized crime thriller set in New York City, “contained” isn’t the right word to describe it. But when talking to producers Joe and Anthony Russo, contained is the right word in comparison to their other recent work. The directors saw 21 Bridges as both a breather from their massive Marvel movies and a callback to the gritty New York crime stories they grew up watching with their dad. The thriller, which was directed by Brian Kirk (Game of Thrones), reunites them with Cha...

Why ‘Happy Endings’ Continues to Endure, According to the Russo Brothers

Have you ever experienced the simple pleasures of binge-watching the show Happy Endings? If not, you’re missing out, because in a word: it’s ah-mah-zing. The ABC series is a warm blanket of a comedy with its lovable characters and kind-hearted sense of humor. Even its opening credits create a warm feeling. Created by David Caspe (Black Monday), the comedy lasted for three seasons, two years, and 57 episodes, and while that is a lot of content and fun to be had, it was still canceled too soon. I...

Disney’s Awards Push for ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Doesn’t Seem to Include Robert Downey Jr. for Best Actor

Unless Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker makes a last minute dash for the box office record, Avengers: Endgame will be both the highest grossing movie of 2019 and the highest grossing movie of all time. But that’s not good enough for The Walt Disney Company and Marvel Studios, because they’ll be making a big push for the comic book movie to get some awards love too. However, it would seem that there’s one key category that Disney and Marvel have left out, and we’re not sure why. Here’s the lis...

Avengers Endgame: Family values for superheroes

Avengers Endgame: Family values for superheroes I saw Avengers: Endgame on opening night at the last possible showing, 10:30 p.m.. I had to see Endgame after my kids had gone to bed, and my wife -- no fan of comic book movies -- graciously stayed home while they slept. In watching it by myself, however, I made a strategic mistake: The value of family life is one of Endgame’s chief themes. Most comic book films provide a means of escapism. We watch superher...
