Take a Look at These Movie Posters and Prepare to Feel Amazed

Movie posters are not only great for marketing and promoting a movie. Chosen carefully, you can use them as part of room decorations. But, of course, for this to work, you need movie posters that are not of below-average level. It would be great if the poster you choose comes from a movie that is both commercially successful and critically praised. But you should not feel discouraged if it is the other way around. At the very least, it works to add the esthetic of the room in the process. Take a...

A24 Writes Enviable Awards Script

It might seem that New York-based indie distributor A24, two years after claiming a best picture victory with Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight,” and a year removed from the success of Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird,” is set for a low-key Oscar season in 2018. Films like Bo Burnham’s “Eighth Grade,” Paul Schrader’s “First Reformed” and Ari Aster’s […]

The Best Coming-Of-Age Movies

Growing up is hard to do. Before "adulting" — that is, clumsily impersonating our role models and pretending we have our lives together — became a buzzword, we "came of age." The action is still the same: staying out too late and trying to "find ourselves," or building a new life in a strange city.The best thing about coming-of-age movies is that you can watch them and get a better understanding of yourself today. The awkwardness of getting older is more than acne and puberty, and more than the...

‘Hereditary’ is A24’s Biggest Box Office Hit Worldwide

Much was made about Hereditary‘s very negative CinemaScore, but it seems that was much ado about nothing.

Ari Aster‘s received almost universal critical acclaim, and the early festival buzz sent the hype for the indie horror film through the roof.

‘Mid90s’ Trailer: Jonah Hill Makes His Directorial Debut With Coming-of-Age Film

Jonah Hill has had a remarkable career arc. When he started out as a mainstay in crude comedies and broke out with the wildly raunchy Superbad, no one really expected him to go on to become an Oscar nominee — let alone a two-time Oscar nominee. Now Hill is stepping behind the camera with his directorial debut, Mid90s. Based on a script penned by Hill, Mid90s is a coming-of-age film set in — you guessed it — the ’90s.

It’s Never the Wrong Time for a New ‘Little Women’ Movie

What makes a story timeless? It’s a loaded question, with infinite answers, but there are certain through-lines when you take a monocled look. The stories that get retold, over and over ad nauseum, are elemental: hero’s journeys, love stories, arch enemies. Easily adaptable, impressionable by nature; no matter how they are told, how closely they adhere to origin, they feel new. Jesus, Hamlet, Jane Eyre. They are fables ripe with possibility. When it was announced last week that Greta Gerwig...
