Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard Tops Quiet Weekend Box Office

The title to this piece has been used so many times over the last year, but there’s really no other way to describe the box office in its current state. After the one-two punch of A Quiet Place Part II and The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, moviegoing has slowed to a crawl, despite theaters around the world mostly returning to normal.

The Original Ending of Pixar’s ‘Luca’ Involved a Giant Kraken

Like all Pixar movies, Luca went through several significant changes on its path to its final cut – including a wildly different ending that was totally overhauled by the time the completed version was finished. The studio is famous for breaking down its stories over and over again until they shape the story into its ideal form, and for Luca, part of that process involved cutting out an initial ending which involved a kraken. Liam Neeson, eat your heart out. During a recent interview with Luc...

But it didn’t always have such a simple narrative. I spoke with director Enrico Casarosa and producer Andrea Warren in a recent Zoom interview about earlier iterations of this story, their film’s LGBTQ+ metaphor, how parts of Luca w...

'Luca,' Pixar's generic (and literal) fish out of water tale, lands on Disney+

Pixar dips into the ocean once too often with "Luca," a colorful but thin (and literal) fish-out-of-water tale. Although the movie touches on familiar themes about friendship, overcoming differences and letting children go, there's roughly enough story for something between an animated short and the film that lands, understandably in hindsight, via Disney+ instead of theaters.
