‘Lords of Chaos’ Trailer: The Bloody Story Behind the Birth of Norwegian Black Metal

The crazy-but-true story of the Norwegian black metal band Mayhem takes center stage in Jonas Åkerlund‘s brutal drama Lords of Chaos. From humble beginnings to arson and murder, Lords of Chaos paints a not-very-pretty picture of the infamous black metal scene of the 1980s and 1990s. Rory Culkin stars as Øystein Aarseth, aka Euronymous, one of the founders of the Norwegian black metal scene. Watch the Lords of Chaos trailer below. Lords of Chaos Trailer I’ll confess Lords of Chaos wasn’t...

‘The Social Network’ Sequel Might Actually Happen, According to Aaron Sorkin

Facebook has been in the news frequently in the last few years, and not for good reasons.

And according to screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, it might happen. Sorkin recently confirmed that he himself thinks there should be a sequel, and that Social Network producer Scott Rudin has brought the subject up as well...

Billy Zane to Play Marlon Brando in Biopic ‘Waltzing With Brando’

If you uploaded Billy Zane‘s face into one of those apps that compare faces to other celebrities’ faces, you’d probably get Marlon Brando. And it seems like Zane himself realized that, because he is set to play the legendary actor himself in Waltzing with Brando, a biopic based on a memoir by Brando’s architect, Bernard Judge. Zane is set to produce and play the lead in Waltzing With Brando, the biopic about Marlon Brando based on a memoir of the same name by Judge, according to Variety. The...

Adam McKay Details Another ‘Vice’ Deleted Scene Featuring Young Dick Cheney

Vice just hit theaters before the end of 2018, and with awards season in full swing, we’ve got at least two or three months until the movie arrives on home video. But when it does, it will feature a couple of key scenes that didn’t make the final cut. Director Adam McKay has already talked about a certain musical sequence that would have added to the satirical meta nature of the movie, but it turns out Vice almost had a flashback sequence featuring a young Dick Cheney and future wife Lynne Vinc...

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Getting Sing-Along Screenings in 750 Theaters Across America

Touch down has brought us round again to find some new Rocketman images, showing star Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service) in character as Elton John.

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Blu-ray Takes the Stage In February

Bohemian Rhapsody, the box office smash about Freddie Mercury and Queen, is coming home. The Bohemian Rhapsody Blu-ray will hit shelves in February, which the digital copy drops at the end of this month. The biopic received somewhat mixed reviews, with the only consensus being that Rami Malek turned in a great performance as Mercury. But audiences didn’t care about the lackluster critical reaction, and turned the movie into a monster hit. The general public loves Bohemian Rhapsody, so I won’...

‘Hotel Mumbai’ Trailer: Dev Patel and Armie Hammer Are Caught in a Terrorist Attack

In 2008, as Dev Patel‘s breakout hit Slumdog Millionaire was in a limited run in North American theaters, a group of ten terrorists organized a series of bombings and shooting attacks in India’s capital city of Mumbai. More than 170 people were killed, and more than 300 were injured. Ten years later, Patel is starring in a movie about those events. In Hotel Mumbai, Patel plays a newly-promoted waiter who’s on the clock at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel when the attacks begin, and Armie Hammer (Call...

‘Stan and Ollie’ Clips: John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan Bring the Classic Comedy Duo to Life

This weekend brings Stan and Ollie to select theaters in New York and Los Angeles before the film expands in the coming weeks. There has been plenty of praise for the film, especially when it comes to the lead performances by John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan, but if you need to be convinced to see this story about the later years of the classic comedy duo of Laurel and Hardy, a new batch of clips should do the trick. Watch the Stan and Ollie clips below. In this clip, a tense conversation t...

The Tom Hanks Mr. Rogers Movie Now Has a Neighborly Title

Let’s get one thing straight: the Tom Hanks Mr. Rogers movie, where Hanks plays the beloved television host, will always be called “The Tom Hanks Mr. Rogers Movie” in people’s minds. You know, I know it. That said, the movie does now have a real title: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Learn more about A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood below, neighbor. As the recent documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor confirmed, Fred Rogers was one-of-a-kind, and it’s doubtful we’ll see anyone like him...

‘Stan & Ollie’ Clip: John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan Get a Reality Check

If there was any doubt that Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly could do justice to the legendary comedy duo Laurel and Hardy, that doubt is cast aside by the latest clip released from the biopic Stan & Ollie. The two comedy actors do their darndest to respectfully portray two of the most famous comedians of all times, the Classic Hollywood film legends Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy in the newest Stan and Ollie clip, which features Coogan and Reilly giving an impressive show of physical comedy. ...

‘Stan and Ollie’ Review: Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly Resurrect Laurel and Hardy for a Melancholy Send-Off

Eventually, time comes to claim everyone – even world-famous comedians. Mercifully never dipping into maudlin sad clown territory, Jon S. Baird’s melancholy Stan and Ollie tracks the waning days of the great stage and screen comic duo Laurel and Hardy. Avoiding tedious biopic tropes that focus on how well-known people rose to fame, Stan and Ollie is instead more interested in endings. It’s a film about saying goodbye. Before he gets to the end of the Laurel and Hardy story, Baird t...

Sean Bean in a medieval drama series? What will they think of next! The Game of Thrones actor has found a new scheming medieval family to navigate, except the twist is not that he’s going to die (though that may very well happen) but that Bean is playing the descendent of a character played by his Game of Thrones son, Richard Madden.

‘On the Basis of Sex’ Review: A Competent Case for Ruth Bader Ginsburg the Icon, But Not the Human Being

There’s a scene in almost every teen TV drama where the teacher describes the theme of the episode that will come to pass over the next 45 minutes. The majority of On the Basis of Sex is like that. The Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic stars Felicity Jones as the trailblazing lawyer who later becomes one of our foremost Supreme Court justices and only the second female Supreme Court justice in history. But On the Basis of Sex focuses on Ginsburg’s first landmark case that launched her career as the pr...

Incredible Climbing Documentary ‘Free Solo’ Coming to IMAX for One Week, Which Could Result in Your Most Intense Theatrical Experience of 2019

Free Solo, a documentary about rock climber Alex Honnold, is coming to IMAX theaters for a one week run in early 2019. This is great news – the film is a pulse-pounding look at a man who attempts to scale El Capitan, the 3,000 foot sheer rock face in Yosemite National Park, by himself and without any assistance from ropes. The opportunity to experience Free Solo‘s jaw-dropping cinematography on the largest screen possible will be a wonderful post-holiday gift from National Geographic Documentar...

‘Welcome to Marwen’ Review: Robert Zemeckis Creates an Absolute Disaster

It takes a special kind of talent to make a film as shockingly bad as Welcome to Marwen, and Robert Zemeckis is up for the challenge! What the hell happened to Zemeckis, a director responsible for several legitimately great movies? The filmmaker has always embraced cinematic innovation, pushing the envelope by adopting new technologies – for better and worse. Welcome to Marwen definitely falls into the “worse” category, and in many ways, it feels like the terrible, terrible film Zemeckis has be...

‘Vice’ Originally Had a Musical Number, But Paul Thomas Anderson Convinced Adam McKay to Cut It

It’s hard to picture Dick Cheney bursting into song, but it almost happened in Adam McKay‘s Vice. McKay’s dark comedy biopic about the former Vice President makes a wide variety of stylistic choices to tell its tale, and at one point, one of those flourishes involved a full-blown musical number. In the end, though, director Paul Thomas Anderson convinced McKay to leave it on the cutting room floor. More on the deleted Vice musical number below. Just as he did with The Big Short, director Ada...

‘Vice’ Review: Adam McKay Paints a Scathing Portrait of Dick Cheney in One of the Best Movies of the Year

Adam McKay‘s Vice is a funny, infuriating look at the life, times and alleged crimes of Dick Cheney, former Vice President of the United States. As played brilliantly by a nearly unrecognizable Christian Bale, Cheney is presented as the dark force that drove modern American politics into the ground, essentially creating the nightmare we’re stuck in today. This is an unsubtle, difficult, often depressing film. It’s also one of the year’s best. Who is Dick Cheney? Former Member of the U.S. Hou...

However, Amblin Entertainment is shutting down pre-production on the project for the time being. But why?

All the world was a stage for William Shakespeare — but what happens when the curtains drop and the stage burns down? He uneasily retires to a life in the country with a neglected family and broken relationships — at least, that’s what Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming period drama All Is True assumes about the legendary playwright’s mysterious twilight years. Not much is known about the Shakespeare’s uncertain final years, a topic that has long intrigued Branagh, who has always wanted to explore the ...

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Schindler’s List, and the film is back in select theaters for a limited time starting today. It’s a milestone motion picture, earning Steven Spielberg his first Oscar for Best Director, not to mention taking home Best Picture. But more importantly, it’s probably the most harrowing and acclaimed depiction of the Holocaust that the big screen has ever seen. Schindler’s List inspired survivors to tell their stories, and it also inspired Spielberg to start th...

‘Mary Queen of Scots’ Review: Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie Rule in a Progressive, But Stale, Period Drama

The era of the progressive period piece is surprisingly tedious. Led by two powerhouse performers and backed by a radically diverse cast, Mary Queen of Scots seems to promise the evolution of the period piece — one anchored around two fascinating women ahead of their time and not limited by the crusty perceptions of stuffy historical dramas. But despite the sensational turns by Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie as dueling female rulers, Mary Queen of Scots doesn’t turn out to be a revolutionary h...
