‘A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood’ Image Gives Us a New Look at Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers

Can Tom Hanks, the most wholesome of actors, taking on the role of Mr. Rogers, the most wholesome of humans, save the world? No, don’t be ridiculous – life doesn’t work that way. But it might help make things a little more tolerable, if only briefly. Hanks plays the unbelievably kind children’s television host in the upcoming film A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, and a new pic has arrived featuring the actor rocking one of Rogers’ famous cardigans. See the A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhoo...

‘Shazam’ Filmmakers on How the Movie Connects to the DCEU, Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam, and More [Interview]

Last week, I joined a small group of journalists at a post production facility on the Warner Bros. studio lot to see a sneak peek of footage from the upcoming superhero film Shazam! After getting an early look at a few minutes of the movie, we spoke with director David F. Sandberg and producer Peter Safran about the film’s connections to the DCEU, how the project evolved from the days when Dwayne Johnson‘s Black Adam was said to be involved, the film’s post-credit sequence, and much more.  Du...

‘The Boy 2’ First Look: Brahms is Back, And He Needs a Bath

Remember Brahms, the creepy doll at the center of The Boy? He’s back, and he’s filthy. A new The Boy 2 first look gives us a dirt-covered glimpse of Brahms, and his new friend – whomever that may be. If you’ve seen the original The Boy, then you know the upcoming sequel is going to have to change things up considerably in order to keep its story going. For now, though, we’ll have to make due with the first look below. There he is: Brahms, buried in some dirt, with a hand covering his doll-m...

Hulu is Now Planning to Run Ads When Users Pause Videos

Hulu is planning to roll out a new advertising format. The streaming service will soon start testing ads that play when users pause the video, an attempt to target binge-watchers who have begun to cut the cord for linear TV in favor of digital streaming. But it probably won’t gain them any fans among users who turn to streaming services explicitly to get away from commercial breaks. Hulu is beginning testing for a new form of advertising. The streaming service will begin showing ads whenever...

Why ‘Pancake Milkshake’ Didn’t Make It Into ‘Ralph Breaks The Internet’ and Other Fun Easter Eggs & Cameos Revealed

Today, we continue my interview with Ralph Breaks The Internet directors Phil Johnston and Rich Moore, and producer Clark Spencer, in a discussion that is all about the film’s spoilers, cameos, and easter eggs.

They also share their favorite cameos and easter eggs. If you’ve seen ...

‘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.
