Christopher Nolan makes intense, unique films and, based on the release of the new trailer for Tenet, that is going to continue. There almost no words. See for yourself. Tenet is tentatively scheduled for a July 17th release in theaters.

Warner Brothers has done something no one would have predicted a year ago – released to good-to-great superheroes inside a calendar year. (No, they’re nowhere near Marvel consistently, but they’re moving in the right direction.) Justice League maintains the portentous/brutalist look that director Zack Snyder set for the DCEU, but following the few faint glimmerings […]
How long has it been since we’ve seen a brilliant, completely unironic superhero movie? 2011’s Captain America: First Avenger. Before that? Probably Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie (1978)/Richard Lester & Donner’s Superman II (1980). To that remarkable (and remarkably short) list we can add Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman.
The first trailer for Stephen King’s IT has arrived and it’s really, really creepy (yay scary clowns!). The story of four boys who have to take on Pennywise – a clown who has been killing centuries – is pretty compelling stuff (to be watched between one’s fingers – preferably during the daylight hours. Directed by […]
There are two good movies lurking beneath the surface of CHiPS – an R-rated comedy and an R-rated cop drama. The problem is that they’re both chopped up and are jammed together in such a way that the result is an unhappy compromise that lets down the movie as a whole. The drama would work […]
Almost thirty years ago, there was a sleeper comedy hit called, Three O’Clock High, in which a nerd named Jerry Mitchell got himself in hot water with the school’s behemoth of a bully and found himself challenged to a fight after school. It was pretty good. Fist Fight is essentially the same film only with […]
The LEGO Movie was original, inventive, witty and stylish. Batman was used as punctuation – injected a bit of pompous self-congratulation while saving a few lives. The LEGO Batman Movie takes those few moments and puffs them up into a 104-minute excursion into the EGO part of The LEGO Batman. By the time he decides […]
The director, producer and stars of Warner Bros. Pictures’ Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them came to Toronto to open a world exclusive fan experience for the (hopefully) magical film. Canadian fans will have the opportunity to step inside a giant replica of Newt Scamander’s suitcase to see props and costumes from the film and […]
As any long time Batman fan can tell you, Batman has a number of suits beyond the standard scare-the-crap-outta-the-bad-guys-night-time-avenger uniform. There are suits for deep sea, outer space and many more. Zack Snyder has just revealed a new Batsuit from Justice League and it looks like a serious tactical suit – sporting goggles and much heavier […]
Warner Bros. continues its inspired marketing for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad with a number of nifty character videos featuring Joker, Harley, Amanda Waller and the featured characters from the film. Check them out after the break. Suicide Squad opens on August, 5th.
Set in 1970s Los Angeles, Shane Black’s The Nice Guys is, in turns, smart, funny and dramatic – just not consistently. And most its life comes from newcomer Angourie Rice as the thirteen-year old daughter of one of the lead characters.
