The WGA West Slams Disney-Fox Deal as “Relentless Drive to Eliminate Competition”

44 minutes ago

Disney went ahead and bought 20th Century Fox this morning for a whopping $52.4 billion dollars in a move that will significantly alter the filmmaking industry as we know it. While there's certainly reason to be excited by the prospect of beloved Marvel and Star Wars properties reuniting under the same banner, there's much more reason to be skeptical or outright concerned about the seismic corporate consolidation. The Writers Guild of America West, which represents more than 10,000 writers in the industry, has issued a blistering statement opposing the deal as a step in the wrong … »

Listen: Director Rian Johnson Interviews Paul Thomas Anderson about ‘Phantom Thread’

54 minutes ago

Filmmakers tend to ask each other great questions because they intimately know the work. That’s not to say that journalists and critics can’t also ask great questions, but there’s something about the shared experience of trying to find the right lab for film processing or knowing how people react to certain decisions on set that only filmmakers can speak to you. There’s a great sense of that in this recent chat from the DGA’s podcast The Director’s Cut which features Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson interviewing Paul Thomas Anderson about his … »

James Wan Says ‘Aquaman’ Does Not Have Three Villains

1 hour ago

With Justice League in the rearview mirror, fans are now looking to next year’s Aquaman to see what else Warner Bros.’ Dceu will bring to the table. The studio made an inspired choice in hiring James Wan, the filmmaker behind The Conjuring and Furious 7, to direct, and indeed Wan was certainly up to the challenge of bringing one of the more difficult comic book heroes to life. The filmmaker was actually given the choice of directing Aquaman or The Flash, and he chose the more challenging route—though given what he went through on Furious 7, this was … »

‘The Commuter’ Final Trailer Has Liam Neeson Punching Everybody on a Train

1 hour ago

Lionsgate has released the final The Commuter trailer. The film stars Liam Neeson as an average insurance salesman who gets caught up in a criminal conspiracy that forces him to uncover the identity of one of his fellow passengers. Punching ensues. This looks about as silly and fun as Neeson’s other collaborations with director Jaume Collet-Serra, and while it probably won’t end up on anyone’s Best of 2018 list, that doesn’t mean it’s not a fun way to kick off the new year, especially since it looks like Neeson is retiring from the action-… »

First Poster for ‘Ocean’s 8’ Assembles a New Team

2 hours ago

Warner Bros. has released the first Ocean’s 8 poster for the upcoming spinoff film, and although it’s only tangentially related to Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s trilogy, it appears the suave and stylish spirit of the series is still intact. The Hunger Games and Pleasantville filmmaker Gary Ross directs the new film, which stars Sandra Bullock as Debbie Ocean, the sister of George Clooney’s Danny Ocean. When this film begins she’s fresh out of prison and assembles a team of her own to pull off a unique heist at the Met Gala. While one may think … »

‘Early Man’: 25 Things to Know about Aardman’s Stop-Motion Sports Comedy

3 hours ago

I’ve always been utterly charmed by the films of Aardman Animation, and I’m always eager to see what they’ll do next. From the Wallace & Gromit films to the sly Chicken Run to even their CGI stuff like Flushed Away and Arthur Christmas, their movies feature a warm blend of comedy and heart that always make for a memorable experience. Their latest film, Early Man, seems to follow in that line, and earlier this year, I got to visit Aardman to see the development of the movie. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Early Man, … »

‘Early Man’ Director Nick Park on Designing a Prehistoric World

3 hours ago

Director Nick Park has an unassuming demeanor, but he’s one of the giants of the stop-motion animation world. His Wallace & Gromit shorts are some of the best works of the genre, and he’s continually found ways to push this style of animation forward while still retaining a signature sense of humor that’s both irreverent and charming. Earlier this year, I went to Aardman Studios with a small group of journalists to see the making of his new film, Early Man, which follows a prehistoric tribe that must go up against the citizens of the Bronze … »

3 hours ago

Huge news broke this morning that Disney is acquiring a sizable chunk of 21st Century Fox, including the film production studio 20th Century Fox, but we’ve known this was coming for a few weeks now. That means we’ve had some time to weigh the pros and cons of such a deal, and the consequences that will be felt in the marketplace. Make no mistake, this is not simply about combining superhero movie universes—this is a massive business deal whose impact reaches far wider than multiplexes, and there are a lot of questions still up in the air … »

‘Black Panther’ TV Spot Has the Leader of Wakanda Greeting the World

4 hours ago

Marvel Studios has released a new Black Panther TV spot. The upcoming superhero film stars Chadwick Boseman as the titular leader of Wakanda who must find a way to lead his nation while also fending off a pretender to the throne. The film looks like a radical departure for the superhero genre and yet firmly within the McU to create an entirely new experience. Avengers: Infinity War is all well and good, but this is my most-anticipated superhero film of 2018. Check out the Black Panther TV spot below. The film opens February 16, 2018 also stars Michael B. … »

Exclusive: Michael Giacchino on ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’, ‘Coco’, ‘Incredibles 2’ and More

5 hours ago

When it comes to film composers, Michael Giacchino is a household name. With one Oscar under his belt (Up), a multitude of iconic themes in the heads of audiences (Star Trek, The Incredibles, Lost), and a wonderfully diverse filmography that swings from the bombast of Rogue One to the playfulness of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Giacchino is undoubtedly one of the most exciting composers working today. And while Giacchino’s oeuvre spans two decades, he may have turned in one of his best scores ever with this summer’s War for the Planet of the Apes. Infusing the unsettling instrumentation of … »

New ‘Deadpool 2’ Art Teases the Second Coming with Cable

5 hours ago

The marketing for Deadpool 2 continues to come out of left field, and indeed star/producer Ryan Reynolds has now shared a piece of art for the film that is anything but traditional. We knew things would be different when the very first Deadpool 2 poster was a riff on Norman Rockwell, which itself was debuted in a very special issue of Good Housekeeping. Even the first footage was revealed inside a Bob Ross-esque video featuring Reynolds as Deadpool, and now this new piece of art is a recreation of Michelangelo’s “The Creation of Adam”, with Deadpool sitting … »

Disney Buys 21st Century Fox for $52.4 Billion; Will Take Control of Most Fox Assets

5 hours ago

Last month, we learned there were on-again, off-again talks for Disney to purchase 21st Century Fox. Then Comcast became a suitor, dropped out, and now it looks like Disney has emerged as the corporate behemoth that will become even larger due to the acquisitions. Variety reports that The Walt Disney Company has “set a $52.4 billion, all-stock deal to acquire 20th Century Fox and other entertainment and sports assets from Rupert Murdoch’s empire.” Disney chairman-ceo Bob Iger has extended his contract to the end of 2021 to oversee the transition.

‘The A Word’ Season 2 Finale: Beautiful, Heartbreakingly Honest Family Matters

5 hours ago

Oh, The A Word. How casually devastating you are. While a show like This Is Us emotionally manipulates our feelings, The A Word lets its family drama work on us as a slow burn, leaving us with a complex and difficult conclusion to its second season. The cracks that we’ve seen in the Hughes family all season had to be dealt with, as well as the reality that the pull away from their homes in the Lake District can be a powerful one. Manchester is always the place the family absconds to, for better or worse. For Nicola, it … »

22 hours ago

Mike Flanagan has been on a role with Netflix over the past couple years, first with his spin on home invasion horror Hush and again this year with his triumphant Stephen King adaptation Gerald's Game, so it's fitting that the streaming network has stepped in to save his long-languished film Before I Wake.
