The rumors are true. Alden Ehrenreich, who made a name for himself earlier this year in the Coen Brothers’ Hail Caesar, has been cast as the young Han Solo in the 2018 Star Wars story directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
In Japan, the rep for many modern movie posters is that they’re not cool. The ones distributors create for the local market are often criticized for lacking in style. Shame, because there are truly awesome one-sheets being done, many of which are totally unofficial and totally fantastic.
You know when you did something horrible seven years ago, and you realize it’s finally time to apologize? Well, so does Ben Ramsey. He wrote the lowly regarded Dragonball Evolution and he is sorry, okay?
We’ve all been there: a favored book is snapped up for adaptation, with a whole lot of potential behind it. But when it hits theaters, you walk out wishing that they’d done everything differently.
There are new Tomb Raider movies coming, which means a new cinematic Lara Croft. And while Camilla Luddington did a fantastic job in the last two games, the big screen role has gone to Ex Machina’s Alicia Vikander.
Steam’s had a movie section for a little while now, but for the most part it’s been home to indie flicks and Naruto. Recently, though, that’s been changing. Case in point: Lionsgate just added 100 movies to Steam, including Hunger Games and Twilight.
For the first time in over a decade, there’s a new Godzilla movie coming from Japan’s Toho Studios. This one’s being directed by none other than Neon Genesis’ Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi.
Hardcore Henry is the dream of 1990s video games come to life. It’s a movie that fully realizes some video game makers’ horny pursuit of the hyperreal, only to invert that desire with viscerally cartoonish results. In this action movie, the real world operates on video game logic. You’ll probably wish you had a…
In case you somehow missed it, the first trailer for the next Star Wars film Rogue One appeared today. The first thing we all noticed was that it is insanely faithful to the original trilogy’s look. But what was less obvious was how the story actually goes. So we went through it frame by frame, to find the hidden…
Oh hey, that’s right, there’s a new Star Wars movie coming out this year. No Finn or Rey, but there are Rebels and Imperials, so that’ll still do quite nicely. Here’s our first proper look at it.
Hardcore Henry is the world’s first fully first-person action movie, in which the audience sees from the point of view of the main character. That’s a simple idea, but making it happen was insanely complicated—and dangerous. People were, at times, flirting with death. But for director Ilya Naishuller and star Sharlto…
There are a lot of good scenes in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This one is my favorite.
Privisa is an upcoming animated feature film made in Poland, which is all about a kid who just does not want to grow up.
Suburban dirtballs of the 1980s are a lost culture, worthy of academic study, that disappeared abruptly, leaving mysterious artifacts for future generations to work over. Think of them as, say, the ancient Mayans, only with mullets.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer rocked our world, and it remains one of the all-time greatest TV shows. The story of a fated vampire-hunter who tries to live a normal life in high school, Buffy still has few worthy successors. And it has so much to teach us about good writing.
If it’s worth remembering, it’s worth remembering on Nostalgia Piano.
Some of the biggest questions about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have to do with the shared universe it sets in motion. How will it affect future DC Comics movies, and who is steering the ship? The film’s director, Zack Snyder, explained all that and more at a press conference today.
A brand new X-Men: Apocalypse trailer was released this morning. Most surprising of all was the enormous quanity of new footage it contained, including the appearance of a new-old villain in a not insignificant way. Here’s what we’ve gleaned from our painstaking frame-by-frame analysis.
A few days ago, many people were shocked—shocked!—at a pair of new studies that found that many Americans have authoritarian tendencies. They want a strong leader, who can sort out “those” people. This went against everything we had lazily chosen to believe about America! But it’s also pretty apparent if you pay any…
