If you’re looking for someone to direct a new Ghostbusters movie, who ya gonna call?

Variety reports that Sony has officially hired Jason Reitman, the filmmaker behind movies like Juno, Up in the Air, Thank You For Smo...

The 50 Greatest Movie Moments of 2018

In the cold doldrums of January, with the multiplexes still mostly dormant, there’s only one thing for movie fans to do: look back at the previous year. And that’s what the /Film staff spent much of the past week doing as we assembled to create a list of the 50 greatest movie moments of 2018. First, we debated and argued and fought for which movie moments belonged on the list (all recorded in podcast form for your listening pleasure) and then we voted on the order. The result? A list of 50 scen...

Peter Sciretta’s Top 15 Movies of 2018

2018 has come to a close and I have finally been willing to commit to a list of this year’s best movies. Unlike the rest of the /Film staff, I decided to post a top 15 instead of a top 10, and I’ll explain why. I don’t think this was a great year for movies, but it was a very good one. Many of the films in this list are on nearly equal footing. I recently went back and rated and ranked films through the last decade and a half, and that gives me some perspective. If you were to look at my rating...

How ‘Captain Marvel’ Was Largely Inspired By ‘RoboCop’

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is packed with references and homages to staples of several different genres, from Three Days of the Condor (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) to Inception (Doctor Strange). One would be forgiven for assuming that with all of the characters wandering around the MCU in metal suits, the 1987 sci-fi action classic RoboCop would have been a mainstay reference in that conversation as well, but it seems like the upcoming Captain Marvel is the first MCU movie to be hea...

‘Werewolves Within’, Based on Popular Game, is Being Adapted Into a Movie

If you’ve participated in a board game night over the past few years, you’ve probably played your fair share of Werewolf, a hidden role party game in which each player is secretly assigned a role – either a werewolf or a villager. As night falls in the game, the werewolves murder the residents of an old village called Gallowston, and when the villagers wake up, they must identify the werewolves among them before they’ve all been wiped out. The concept was adapted into a virtual reality game cal...

Anyone following all-things-IMAX likely saw the writing on the wall regarding this. Earlier this year, IMAX announced they were canceling a project to develop a VR camera with Google.
