It’s been a couple decades since I read The Dark Tower but I chose not to re-read it before seeing the movie. Big mistake!
Like City of Bones: The Mortal Instruments, The Dark Tower is more a collection of key moments from the book (as I recall it) and absolutely none of the connective tissue – like plot, explanations (of anything – not just how the Man in Black’s magicks work – let alone why Roland is immune to them).
Production has begun on White Boy Rick – the true story of of a blue-collar father and his teenage son, who became an undercover informant and later a drug dealer, before he was dropped by his handlers and sentenced to life in prison.
Matthew McConaughey stars as Rick Wershe Sr. and newcomer Richie Merritt stars as Richard ‘White Boy Rick’ Wershe Jr.
White Boy Rick is scheduled for release on January 12th, 2018.
Imagine a singing competition in Zootopia and you’ve got the basics for Universal Pictures/Illumination Entertainment’s Sing.
In this wolrd of anthropomorphic animals, Buster Moon (Academy Award® winner Matthew McConaughey) is a dapper Koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal optimist—and maybe a bit of a scoundrel—who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now facing the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.
Sing opens on December 21st. The new trailer follows the break.
Illumination’s SING is a let’s-put-on-a-show tale set in a world of anthropomorphized animals.
To save his failing theater, Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey) decides to hold a singing competition and when a misprint on his flyers inflates the prize money, suddenly he has more contestants than he could have hoped for.
Read on to meet the cast and characters. SING will be in theaters on December 21st.
There’s something about Laika. They make animated films (Coraline, ParaNorman, The Boxtrolls) that are for the whole family, yet never feel like they’re either talking down to children or talking over their heads – while providing plenty of substance for adult viewers.
Kubo and The Two Strings looks like it could be another instant classic with its vaguely origami-like animation and epic quest. Kubo, guided by the magically created Monkey, seeking out his father’s armor to save his village and solve the mystery of his missing father.
Check out the new trailer for Kubo and The Two Strins following the jump. it opens on August 19th.
