14 Movies Like Knives Out That You'll Want To Watch ASAP

"Knives Out" does a lot of things right. The film, directed by Rian Johnson and starring some of Hollywood's best (a trend that's continuing in its upcoming sequel), may feel unique in its blend of comedy, murder, and sly social commentary. But the comedy mystery is actually one of Hollywood's oldest genres, one that's rarely shy about slipping in a biting statement here and there. A comedy mystery can be sleek or slapstick, dumb or wise, or all of those things at once.Mystery comedies first pea...

No Time To Die Spoiler Review: Daniel Craig's Final Outing As James Bond Strives For Closure

"No Time to Die" comes 15 years after "Casino Royale," arguably the best James Bond movie. 2006 introduced the world to a rising star named Daniel Craig, who was known for his work in films like "Road to Perdition" and "Layer Cake," but who had yet to really break out and become a household name. Since then, we've been adventuring through the typical franchise peaks and valleys with Craig's Bond, and now, we're here at the end.And it does feel like the end. Craig and all involved have made no se...

The Infinite Joys Of The Christmas Action Movie

"Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? In the lane, explosions glistening. A beautiful sight, Bruce Willis in a gunfight. Walking in a winter wonderland."The Christmas action movie has become such a staple sub-genre that Marvel Studios is now devoting a whole six-episode series to it. As seen in the delightful first trailer that debuted last month, "Hawkeye" will feature Marvel's least mighty Avenger -- Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) -- teaming up with upstart archer superhero Kate Bi...

Ironheart: Everything We Know So Far

Marvel Studios has so many projects in development it's easy to lose track — more than 30 of them, as it just so happens. But one that is worth keeping on your radar, for a wide variety of reasons, is "Ironheart." The upcoming Disney+ show is poised to introduce a new, important hero to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and one that may end up filling some hugely important shoes. While the show is still relatively far away, we're here to go over everything we know so far about it so you can be read...

Don Cheadle Hints At Rhodey's Future In The MCU Beyond Armor Wars

The Marvel Cinematic Universe might be expanding in weird and unexpected ways after the Infinity Saga came to a close in "Avengers: Endgame," but what about the original crew of superheroes who were there from the beginning? Don Cheadle's James Rhodes (aka War Machine) has been a mainstay in the franchise since he took over for Terrence Howard in 2010's "Iron Man 2," but his many appearances throughout the years have only ever amounted to cameos or supporting roles amid much busier movies. Thoug...

Marvel's "What If...?" animated series is now streaming its season 1 finale on Disney+, and with it, comes the last known performance from the late, great Chadwick Boseman, who lent his voice to four episodes this season. Before Boseman's untimely death, it seems that there were plans for a spin-off involving his character.In "What If...?" season 1, Boseman reprised his role as T'Challa, but for the most part, it was a different T'Challa than the one we saw in the "Black Panther" movie.

The 14 Best Val Kilmer Movies Ranked

In July 2021, A24 and Amazon Prime released "Val," a documentary about the life and career of actor Val Kilmer. Part behind-the-scenes look at Val Kilmer movies, part autobiography, the film delves into the controversies and tragedies that define Kilmer as an actor. It's a warm and affecting documentary, made even more powerful for the presence of son Jack Kilmer as narrator -- Kilmer recently lost his voice to throat cancer, and hearing the younger Kilmer provide voice over for the film is an u...

Robert Downey Jr Thinks This Is His Best Role – And He's Right

After pulling off the 2008 double whammy of starring in the blockbuster "Iron Man" and getting nominated for an Oscar for the hit comedy "Tropic Thunder," it was official: Robert Downey Jr. became a superstar. This was a particularly crazy development because by that point the son of famed underground filmmaker Robert Downey Sr. had been appearing onscreen for decades, and had only a few years before been considered a drug burnout, box office poison, and an all-around lost cause.Of course he did...

Other Ryan Reynolds Movies You Should Watch After Free Guy

2021 is the year of deja vu. It has conquered our airwaves; it has twisted our headlines; and it has massively entrenched itself in multiplexes, where last year's movies are current entertainment. A relief? Sure. Numbing? That too. It's hard to shake the sense that we've already seen everything that theaters have to offer, given that we got our first glimpses of "Black Widow" and "F9" more than a year a half ago. So, in this strange season, what does it take to renew a moviegoer's excitement?

Jessica Jones Star Krysten Ritter Really, Really Wants To Play The Marvel Hero Again

"Jessica Jones" may not have the instant name familiarity compared to other Marvel heroes like Captain America or Spider-Man, but after three seasons of a series over at Netflix, star Krysten Ritter managed to drum up a loyal following. Fans were devastated when Netflix canceled the show citing low-ratings as justification, but few were more heartbroken than Ritter. What Did Krysten Ritter Have To Say? As reported in an exclusive interview with Screen Rant, Ritter was asked about the possibility...

Ranking Every Jon Favreau Movie From Worst To Best

Jon Favreau has been a multi-talented Swiss Army Knife for his whole career, even if most know him only as a comedic actor. He started in the improvisation and comedy clubs of Chicago before finding his big break in Los Angeles. His first screenplay was for the movie "Swingers," which came out in 1996 and was a big success; Favreau also starred in the film, and it's on that set that he met his long-time friend Vince Vaughn, with whom he went on to collaborate frequently. He's also known for play...

Benedict Cumberbatch Improvised Calling Tony Stark A 'Douchebag' In Avengers: Infinity War

Don't ask me why, but nothing lights up certain circles of film fans quite like (usually unsubstantiated) claims that a certain scene or line of dialogue was improvised in a major movie or show. If true, it usually tends to be overblown or a simple case where everyone talked over alternate lines or ways to play specific moments that might not necessarily have been present in the script itself. In short, there's nothing inherently better about improvisation versus sticking to the script! All that...

The Brief Story Behind Doctor Strange Calling Iron Man a Douchebag

Remember in Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, when Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) called Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) a douchebag? It got a laugh in the theater, but it was weird, right?

13 Box Office Bombs That Are Truly Worth A Watch

Good movies aren't all created equal. While some benefit from great trailers and well-crafted marketing campaigns, other films suffer from a lack of promotion. Sometimes, a good movie is released at the same time as bigger, much-awaited production that overshadows everything else in theaters; it's never a good idea to schedule a movie's opening against the latest entry in a hot franchise or the biggest stars' latest blockbusters. Whatever the reason, many truly great movies bomb at the box offic...

‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Will Introduce Dominique Thorne’s Ironheart Before Her Disney+ Series

Kevin Feige has gained quite a reputation for being notoriously tight-lipped about every possible facet of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Neon Genesis Evangelion, the groundbreaking, apocalyptic mecha anime series, aired its final two episodes, 25 and 26, on Japanese television in March 1996.

Ethos picks up $100M at a $2.7B+ valuation for a big data platform to improve life insurance accessibility

More than half of the U.S. population has stayed away from considering life insurance because they believe it’s probably too expensive, and the most common way to buy it today is in person. A startup that’s built a platform that aims to break down those conventions and democratize the process by making life insurance (and the benefits of it) more accessible is today announcing significant funding to fuel its rapidly growing business.

‘Black Widow’ Could’ve Featured an Iron Man or Hawkeye Cameo, But “She Doesn’t Need the Boys”

Marvel’s Black Widow takes place between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, allowing for a number of potential cameos from other members of The Avengers. Since the movie takes us back to Budapest, famously mentioned in banter between Black Widow and Hawkeye, many fans expected Jeremy Renner to pop up at some point. Meanwhile, another rumor pointed at a possible appearance by Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark. While both options were discussed, writer Eric Pearson...
