Maddy Whittier lives in a house that, like the Mars biosphere training facility, is completely sealed off from the rest of the world – because Maddy has Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID), making her essentially allergic to almost everything.

When Olly Bright’s family moves in next door, he notices her looking out her window and is intrigued.

Based on the novel by Nicola Yoon, Everything Everything is a story of first love/coming of age/indomitable spirit.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Is a Kinetic Slog!

Guy Ritchie made his bones (so to speak) on hard-edged crime films with wicked humor and striking visuals. Then he went big budget with Sherlock Holmes and provided a very different (but surprisingly canonical) consulting detective. Next up was the criminally underrated The Man From U.N.C.L.E. – the best non-Bond Bond flick since the first Jason Bourne.

Now Ritchie is dissecting and reassembling the Arthur legend in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword – and it’s a very kinetic movie that is also, simultaneously, more than a bit of a slog.

Warner Bros. has released the final trailer for Wonder Woman and it’s chock full of new footage – more battles, a few more quips and a sense of just how epic the film is intended to be.

Additionally, the trailer includes a good deal more of Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor – showing that he’s more than just a DID (Dude in Distress). This is a guy who may not have superpowers, but is every bit as brave as Diana, Princess of Themyscira – and very good at his job.

Wonder Woman opens on June 2nd.

Going In Style – Grey Power!

Going in Style is the rare remake that is better than the original.

That’s because it creates a plausible (if not entirely believable) set of circumstances in which three octogenarians are forced to consider the unlikely remedy of robbing a bank – and are smart enough to do it.

Dressed Like A Bat. I Dig It! Trailer: Justice League!

The loooonnnnng awaited Justice League trailer is here.

It’s moody and Zack Snyder ponderous, but with some actual humor and wit. Combined with the previously released Comic-Con footage and it could be very interesting – maybe even really good.

There’s also a new poster.

Justice League opens on November 17th.

Matt Reeves has signed on the dotted line and will direct the next standalone Batman film, The Batman, starring Ben Affleck.

It’s an excellent choice as Reeves can handle horror-suspense (Let Me In), and big budget action-adventure (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).

The Born King Trailer: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword!

Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword looks to be a huge reimagining of the Arthurian myth – on a scale with John Boorman’s exquisite Excalibur, but considerably less shiny.

The new trailer for  King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is set against an immediately recognizable Led Zeppelin tune. The result is pretty impressive.
