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).

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.

Bear In Mind This Isn’t The Red Band Trailer Trailer: CHiPs!

When I first heard that Warner Bros. was turning CHiPs into an action-comedy movie I was a bit leery – but then it occurred to me that they might turn it into a 21 Jump Street kind of update.

CHiPs stars Dax Shepard and Michael Peña as Officers Jon Baker and Frank “Ponch” Poncherello. It opens on March 24th. The trailer follows the jump.

Collateral Beauty – I Hated This Movie!

Collateral Beauty is a story about grief, recovery and redemption – themes also found in Kenneth Lonergan’s brilliant Manchester By Sea. It angered me because it appeared to be an entirely different movie than the one suggested by the trailers – and by being a remarkably treacly film on its own merits.
