There's no shortage of good horror movies or scares. But what about the great ones? Hell, what about the greatest ones? As the days grow shorter and the nights grow cooler, we decided to tackle that question directly. /Film ...

Why ‘The Last Duel’ Star Jodie Comer Says the Movie Is ‘Empowering’ for Women Today

Jodie Comer was immediately intrigued by “The Last Duel” when she was asked to meet with director Ridley Scott about starring in the period film. In the drama, based on true events and adapted from Eric Jager’s 2004 book “The Last Duel: A True Story of Trial by Combat in Medieval France,” Comer stars as […]

Ridley Scott's The Last Duel Bombs At The Box Office As Halloween Kills Dominates The Weekend

Ridley Scott's The Last Duel Bombs At The Box Office As Halloween Kills Dominates The Weekend It's been a mixed weekend at the box office. The steady shores of the horror genre delivered another hit with David Gordon Green's sequel "Halloween Kills," but Ridley Scott's historical drama "The Last Duel" has been thoroughly glove-slapped by a dismal $4.8 million domestic debut. Those numbers are particularly painful when taking into consideration the movie's $100 million budget, which it now has ef...

Halloween Kills It at the Domestic Box Office

To the surprise of no one, Halloween Kills topped the domestic box office. To the surprise of everyone, Halloween Kills scared up a $50 million debut from 3,705 locations despite the day-and-date release on Peacock’s streaming service. Per Deadline, the slasher pic held extremely well on Saturday, typically the day of death for most horror pics with less than stellar reviews and exit polls, where it dropped just 25 percent to earn $17.2 million.

A Miniseries Is The Best Way To Finish Ridley Scott's Alien Prequel Story

It’s looking less and less likely that Ridley Scott will helm another Alien prequel, but fortunately, Alien: Covenant could still receive a follow-up in the form of a limited series. Despite starting strong, the Alien franchise has struggled to find its feet with critics over the last few decades. The original Alien, a brutal and brilliant “haunted house in space” sci-fi horror, and its more action-forward sequel Aliens are beloved by viewers and critics alike, often still held up as classics o...

13 Movies Like A Quiet Place That Are Definitely Worth Watching

"A Quiet Place" was a refreshing original sci-fi horror movie that became a sensation when it debuted in 2018. It couldn't have come sooner. While great horror films were being produced by indie distributors like A24 and Neon, studio horror films of the time tended to be cheap found footage projects and lazy teen slasher flicks. A change of pace was very welcome.Director John Krasinski developed the original premise with co-writers Bryan Woods and Scott Beck, crafting a post-apocalyptic world wh...

In Praise Of Ben Affleck's Scene-Stealing Performance In The Last Duel

You have to hand it to Ben Affleck: when he co-wrote "The Last Duel," the Ridley Scott-directed historical drama that just opened in theaters, he sneakily went ahead and wrote the best part for himself. Affleck, Boston's favorite son, King of Dunkin Donuts, and tabloid star at large, only has a minor role in "The Last Duel," but he makes every single one of his scenes count. And he looks like he's having fun in the process.Affleck plays Count Pierre d'Alençon, and while we see him briefly in the...

The Last Duel Ending Explained: From A New Point Of View

Ridley Scott is back in action with "The Last Duel," his historical epic based on the non-fiction book by Eric Jager. The film follows three specific characters: Jean de Carrouges (Matt Damon), Marguerite de Carrouges (Jodie Comer), and Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver), all living in France in the 1300s. Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris entered into the last officially recognized "judicial duel" fought in France.

The Last Duel Review: A Gripping & Brutal Historical Drama

Ridley Scott, the master behind films such as Alien, Blade Runner, and The Martian, has two new movies in 2021. Before we see the scandalous real-life story of House of Gucci, Scott has another story to tell based on true events. The Last Duel is a historical drama that follows the last legally sanctioned duel in France’s history as Marguerite de Carrouges (Jodie Comer) claims to have been raped by Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver).

The Last Duel Crew Share Their Ridley Scott Stories: 'He Doesn't Stop Until He Gets It' [Exclusive]

There are many reasons to look forward to "The Last Duel," ranging from the fact that it's a Ridley Scott movie and nothing more needs to be said (although I'm going to say more anyway, sorry!), to the current dearth of historical epics that used to be considered proven moneymakers and have made this film into a rarity, to the must-see appearances of both Matt Damon and Ben Affleck in medieval hair and makeup ... not to mention their significant contributions on the other side of the camera, as ...

The Multiple Endings Of Blade Runner Explained

Based on Philip K. Dick's beloved sci-fi novella "Do Android's Dream of Electric Sheep?", Ridley Scott's landmark 1982 science fiction film "Blade Runner" has become a cultural touchstone since bombing at the box office when it was first released nearly four decades ago. Thanks to home video and alternate versions released in 1992 and 2007, the movie has had a far greater longevity than some of its contemporaries, and is now considered in the same realm as "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "Star Wars"...

'The Last Duel' doesn't disappoint, but the lengthy buildup to it does

"The Last Duel" of the title doesn't disappoint in director Ridley Scott's latest period epic, but the protracted buildup to it somewhat does. A "Rashomon"-like tale that tells its story from different perspectives, this fact-based adaptation of Eric Jager's book is muddy, bloody and grim but too drawn out in filtering 14th-century feudal norms through a modern prism.

Ridley Scott Doesn't Think That Alien TV Series Will Be As Good As His Movies, Sorry

Once a filmmaker reaches a certain point in this industry, they get the right to voice whatever creative opinion they want about whatever topic they choose to. Martin Scorsese is allowed to pen longform essays decrying the current state of the industry for as long as he needs to make that point, Steven Spielberg can wax poetic about the future of the theatrical experience despite our present circumstances, and Ridley Scott is simply going to speak his mind and publicly trash talk other projects ...

Why The Entire Third Act Of The Last Duel Was Written By Nicole Holofcener

Ridley Scott's "The Last Duel" has a script with a very distinct three-act structure. That script, written by Nicole Holofcener, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon, follows in the footsteps of "Rashomon," telling a story from three different perspectives -- knight Jean de Carrouges (Damon), his wife Marguerite (Jodie Comer), and de Carrouges' one time friend turned enemy Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver). This approach allows the film to present alternate versions of certain moments, creating a richer stor...

No Time To Die Proves Bond (Still) Doesn't Depend On America

Daniel Craig's fifth and final "James Bond" flick "No Time to Die" finally arrived in theaters in North America over the weekend, just shy of six years after "Spectre" initially debuted. Bond fans did, indeed, turn up, with the movie setting a record for Thursday previews at the box office. But by Monday morning, the weekend total fell on the lower side of expectations. Good, not great. A little unexciting, all things considered. Even so, there is an important lesson or two to be learned from th...

Why The Last Duel Is Matt Damon And Ben Affleck's First Script Together Since Good Will Hunting

"Good Will Hunting" helped launch Matt Damon and Ben Affleck into stardom, and won them a Best Original Screenplay Oscar in the process. But despite that success, the two haven't written a screenplay together in 25 years. That finally changed with "The Last Duel," the new Ridley Scott film Damon and Affleck wrote with Nicole Holofcener. Based on a true story, "The Last Duel" is set in France in the 1300s. Damon plays Jean de Carrouges, a knight who enters into a duel with his one-time friend Jac...
